ON THIS occasion, strange as it may seem, I find myself agreeing with with Richard Grant on the question of a letter with no name and address.

I understand if the writer is afraid of repercussions then that is fair, but I do like to know there is a name to the letter-writer...I might know them.

And as regards Richard's comment on items being made cheaper elsewhere, there is no argument about that but as the owner and driver of 70's classic car, the question of new spares is a problem, as I prefer to buy what is known as New Old Stock, but some parts are in short supply so I have to buy pattern parts, some of which leave a lot to be desired and are made of inferior materials, which do not conform to the required standards and fail dangerously, so you see cheaper is not necessarily a bargain, is it?
