Irwin Armstrong's response to Alex Attwood's reaction to proposals for online taxing of vehicles (Write Back, February 22) is possibly the most egregious display of self-denial I have witnessed.
It surely ill-becomes the chairman of Northern Ireland's Conservative Party to accuse others of arguing for the provision of "badly, inefficiently and ineffectively" delivered services.
In accusing Mr Attwood of a "Sovietised way of looking at government", Mr Armstrong reveals his own political analysis and acumen to be operating on a depressingly juvenile level.
