I VOTED for Sushila Dhall in the General Election and would broadly agree with the comments in her letter (Oxford Mail, June 28.

Nonetheless, I was somewhat amused and bemused by her employing the expression “we ordinary people”.

Even allowing for the socio-economic context in which such words were written, “ordinary” is scarcely the first epithet which springs to mind when describing, this exceptionally fine and brilliant, if a shade eccentric, lady.
