Missing Letter

Dan Plesch tells me that my letter from last week (below) got in to the Grauniad. I missed it! Missed the little flush of pleasure that you get to see your words in print. Never mind. These days, between pressure of time and not being able to find my glasses, I only read the headlines, which seems a waste of trees.

That letter in full:

The Editor
The Guardian

I was electrified to read that the French ground to ground nuclear weapon rejoices in the name of "Plateau d'Albion" (Letters, January 26th). Does that not roughly translate as "Flatten England"? Maybe Blair's plan to renew Trident is not as stupid as it looks.
