SIR - In his T&A letter of April 13 which, of course, included the usual barrage of criticism directed at the Prime Minister and his Government, Colin Durkin told us that he is able to recognise waffle and rhetoric when he sees it.

We were then subjected to another similar level of diatribe on April 21.

Perhaps, when referring to "waffle and rhetoric", he has been reading too many of his own letters?
