What a treat Edward Wheatley’s letters are, so entertaining.
His rich, literary style makes so many of us regulars who submit dry, documentary evidence or quote statistics somewhat tedious. Not always easy to determine his ideological divide, though. His latest offering (January 29), “Old Etonian Tory toffs show no restraints … bloodthirsty grin of a psychopath …” had me hiding behind the sofa. Wonderful stuff, Edward. On the other hand his recent swipe at Jo Rust (January 22) was, of course, completely inaccurate. As far as I know she is not a member of the “professional politicians’ club.” Merely an NHS employee, something much more useful.
