Sir: I find the description of John Major by Andrew Marr and other commentators as a "decent man" incomprehensible. He is answerable for, inter alia, the vicious jobseeker's allowance, the cut in income support help for mortgage payers and the consequent increase in homelessness, the anti- democratic Criminal Justice Act, the Asylum and Immigration Bill, the sackings of hundreds of teachers, the planned closure of Bart's hospital - the oldest public hospital in the world - and the general wrecking of parts of the NHS. The list of the depravities perpetrated by his ministers for which he must take ultimate responsibility is endless. Some decency.
