SIR,—I must protest at the attitude of the Spectator to

the Prime Minister which culmi- nated in last week's first leader. For some time now not a week has gone past without it carry- ing every possible criticism and innuendo. This has reached such a pitch that one can only assume that it is sustained either by a personal editorial vendetta or by an irresponsible desire to make the paper bought at all costs. The alleged lack of confidence has no basis what- ever among those who arc in the best position to judge—his party colleagues in the House.— Yours faithfully,

House of Commons
