Letters: Polite to Mandela

Sir: Further to your report (9 July) of Brian Wilson MP's criticism of me in relation to Nelson Mandela, I defy Mr Wilson to produce any statement abusive of Mr Mandela made or approved by me at any time. He will not do so for none exists.

What does exist, however, is a list, published by Conservative Central Office in 1992, and not contradicted, of Mr Wilson's support for the Marxist government of Nicaragua, the pro-Castro UK-Cuba Friendship Association, and unilateral nuclear disarmament by Britain. Perhaps Mr Wilson would like to apologise to Tony Blair and the rest of us for this deplorable record.
