Letters - Bloody noses: round three

I agreed with the general sentiment of Peter Wilby's tactical voting guide ("How to give Blair a bloody nose", 11 April) but not with the inclusion of Nia Griffith on your list of Labour candidates to vote against. She is one of the most committed socialists I know. She opposed the war with Iraq, foundation hospitals (though they do not exist in Wales) and tuition fees - in fact, all the flagship policies of new Labour.

I hope the electors in Llanelli support her.
