Letter: False claims

The Independent Online
AS NEAL ASCHERSON's incisive polemic demonstrated ('Stick to the script, Charles', 8 May), Prince Charles's assault on political correctness was an attack on a harmless phantom. None the less, that a man not elected to represent anyone, and unqualified as an expert, should regale us with what is and is not politically correct, is too ignorant to be arrogant.

It is not difficult to falsify political claims, ie, to show what is politically incorrect. On that score, politicians offering thinly disguised versions of old, ineffective policies get all crosses and no ticks.
