LETTER:United we fall

From Mr John Madeley

Sir: I seem to recall that just before the last general election in Canada, in October 1993, the Conservative prime minister - whatever was her name? - said something rather similar about her country's economy to what Kenneth Clarke said this week. In the election, Canada's Conservatives were reduced from 160 seats to two. The difference between Conservatives in Canada and in Britain is that in Canada they were rather more united.

Yours sincerely,


Caversham, Berkshire
