Maria Fyfe (Letters, 4 July) does not seem to be aware that during the Second World War not all politicians and top civil servants concentrated all their efforts to defeat Hitler.
In 1945 the government set up a tribunal to investigate corruption and bribery at the top of the Board of Trade, the Ministry of Food and the Ministry of Health during the war.
Obviously, some politicians in the major parties had a more lucrative war than most members of the public.
