I WOULD like to express my gratitude to Iain Frazier (Letters, August 6) for bringing to my attention Tim Walker’s play, Bloody Difficult Women, at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.

Having seen the play at the Assembly Rooms on Sunday, I have learnt where real political power lies in the United Kingdom – the answer is bound to surprise you, as it surprised me and many others in the audience.

In fact, I have learnt so much more from Mr Tim Walker’s play than I ever did during the first year of my BSc Politics and International Relations university course.

This is precisely why I will be seeing it for a second time with my friends later this week because, apart from offering great comedy, the play is brutally honest about the depressing state of our country’s politics and constitution.
