The following letter was published in the Financial Times on 28 July 2009 in response to my letter (see post of 24 July):
“Sir, Stanley Crossick (Letters, July 24) claims that William Hague’s use of Pitt the Younger’s statement that “England has saved herself by her exertions and will, I trust, save Europe by her example” tells us in what world the Conservative party is living. He’s right. One in touch with the overwhelming majority of British public opinion.
Though since Mr Crossick lives in Brussels, I suppose he can’t be expected to understand.
