LETTERS – Tongue firmly in his cheek.

What a fabulous letter from Nagindas Khajuria (page 13, 26 July). There must an anagram in there to describe my feelings.

As I read it I enjoyed his selective view of European history but thought his tongue was in his cheek.

When I got to the bit where he describes the modern Europe as ‘vibrant, fast moving, efficient powerhouse …’ I collapsed on the floor, rolling around in agony of laughter. It was when I recovered that I realised the whole letter was a brilliantly conceived joke (rather like the EU).

Well done, Nagindas. More power to your pen.

JE Francis, Loxley.
