Tory MPs have the faces of guilty men

·1-min read

Jessica Taylor’s haunting photograph of Tory MPs being taken to task by Keir Starmer about their leader’s lies, published in your print edition above the article listing their excuses for him (Cakes, raves and robbery: How Tory loyalists got creative to defend PM, 20 April), has echoes of the guilty men at the Nuremberg trials of leading Nazis. There is the same arrogance, indifference and inability to look at either the speaker or the consequences of their actions. The game is up and they know it. But they don’t care.

• Thank you, Lucy Mangan, for telling it like it is on childbirth for a change, in your review of Yorkshire Midwives on Call (18 April). My own experience left me with a terror of ever finding myself on a desert island with a midwife.
