PM for PM

Sir: Mr Peter Lyons' letter (18 March) about his meeting with and his appreciation of Sir Patrick Mayhew's qualities was, to me, very interesting. I have long thought that Sir Patrick, far more than any of his senior Government colleagues, looks like and sounds like a prime minister of Great Britain. I believe the Conservative Party really has no need to look any further for a new leader.
