His party, right or wrong
From Mark Taha • Sir: I entirely share Leo McKinstry's opinion of Roy Hattersley (`I prefer the tub of lard', 13 September). To me, he's an old Labour hack whose claim to libertarian principles is a sick joke. Apart from his record of toeing the party line in support of the closed shop, high taxation and compulsory incomes policy, he's a zealot for the European Union and the race relations industry, wants to ban boxing and opposes liberalising gambling. Has this man ever thought of minding his own business? Silly question.
