THE investigation of the present state of religion in Britain (Review, 4 January) was spoilt by the repeated equation of belief in God with "spiritual health". The unbelieving minority is just as healthy; indeed, several of the accounts of believers seem to show that belief is not so much a sign of "spiritual health" as a symptom of mental ill-health.

JUST what are you trying to tell us with your three pictures of Straw family members leaving their home past a policeman (front page, 4 January)? That even if we are the Home Secretary, or his wife or his son, the law cannot protect us?
