Are The Electorate Too Stupid To Vote?

There are days when it seems life, and people, are great. God's in his heaven, all's well with the world, you know what I mean. Then you read the letters page on Teletext and crash down to earth with a bang. The following letter makes me wonder at some peoples' sheer and utter stupidity:

Leaving EU is suicide

Twelve months ago, Iceland was solidly anti-EU. They are now pleading to be fast-tracked into Europe, having faced bankruptcy and a wrecked economy.

How stupid then that foolish (or treacherous) elements are advocating the suicidal step of British withdrawal. What planet are they on? Norway only survives through vast oil reserves, while Thatcher sold ours to pay for her economic mismanagement.
N G, Bromsgrove, Worcs

Every sentence, virtually every word, is such utter drivel that I don't think I need to say anything. All I will say is that I know people who do think the EU is a good thing, but at least they don't support their beliefs with such arrant crap!

I think there should be an exam for people to pass before they are allowed to vote. After all you can't drive a car without passing a test, but dickheads like N.G.of Bromsgrove, with the brain of a chipmunk, can vote for twats who then go and bomb Iraq, Afghanistan and elsewhere.

Sorry if that is insulting to any chipmunks who may be reading, perhaps I should have said 'brain of a Guardian reader'. Mrs B told me off, think she likes chipmunks.

Do you happen to know which of Gordon Brown's economic advisors wrote the letter?
