From Ms Catherine Croydon

Sir: Many people hearing the broadcasts of French commandoes boarding the Rainbow Warrior will doubtless share my feeling of alarm that the French government should compound the folly of its threat to resume testing in the Pacific by establishing an exclusion zone and aggressively boarding a ship refusing to acknowledge this effrontery.

I suggest that concerned British people should join the Antipodeans in refusing to buy French products. While the French government may disregard popular protest, they are likely to be more susceptible to commercial pressures. My family intend to forgo our treats of French wine and cheese: we hope that others will do the same.

Yours faithfully,

Catherine Croydon
