I READ the letter "Seeing red over yellow stars" (October 15) with increasing incredulity. Your correspondent argues that divisive politics have no place in the atmosphere of a street market, having done her best to foment them by her very actions and letter. Such astonishing intolerance is surely a factor in most of our worldwide conflicts.

I share some of the writer's reservations about the activities of the EU, but I would never be so facile as to find their flag offensive or to remonstrate on that basis with a foreign national - a guest in this country, who probably has differing political views and a necessarily restricted command of English.

I am sorry that this lady did not enjoy the event as much as our traders, who always look forward to their visits to Huntingdon, and I hope she may find better grace.
