Vote for Raymond Briggs
SIR: I don’t think ‘Notes from the Sofa’ (August issue) should pass without comment. Raymond Briggs’s tour de force, that included just about all the well worn clichés used by politicians and others, was a minor masterpiece. When I read it out to friends, one of them said that, if I were a politician, she would vote for me! My first reading of it had me in fits of laughter. Well done, Raymond! John G.L.
