Perhaps your advice to Tony Blair - that as he is sounding increasingly authoritarian he should read "anything but Nietzsche" - has come too late ("Get off the couch and think", 3 August). Some of Nietzsche's maxims may already have been taken to heart: "Whom among today's rabble do I hate the most? The Socialist rabble..." "Beggars should be entirely abolished! Truly, it is annoying to give to them and annoying not to give to them."
