Letter: How Ruskin saw Morris

Tim Hilton suggests that William Morris's politics "are not only irrelevant but objectionable". In fact Morris was a revolutionary socialist who argued that art could only be fulfilled in a society based on human need rather than profit. This explains why the Tories who run the Post Office prefer a stamp of Muffin the Mule to William Morris.
