SIR - Government misjudgements - the latest two being the hypocrisy of Patel highlighted by Tyrone Mings and the unbelievable decision to remove the requirements to wear a face mask.

The Conservative party under the stewardship of Boris Johnson unfortunately now represents an Old Boys network not meritocracy. Maintenance of wealth gap not equality. Political dogma not creativity. Secrecy not transparency. Throwing into the long grass not accountability. Centralisation of true power not devolvement.
