No proof for chaos theory

I REFER to the letter ''Baseless accusation'' by Adnan Qayum (South China Morning Post, April 10).

Mr Qayum refers to the British as having ''left only chaos and turmoil in the wake of every withdrawal from a former colony''.

Are Australia, New Zealand, Canada and Singapore in ''chaos and turmoil''? Mr Qayum should get his facts straight. ALAN CHAPMAN Causeway Bay
