Your Letters

Holding a Live Earth concert in Antarctica to highlight global warming has to be one of the most hypocritical things I have ever heard of. Do the penguins need to be reminded about their carbon footprints? While I'm sure the crews will take a long, slow & ecological boat to the continent, I'm sure the stars will be jetted in. If the event wasn't held, the organisers wouldn't need to bother with the hassle of making it carbon neutral.

Were you being deliberately ironic when you referred to Germaine Greer's book The Female Eunuch as "seminal" (Gallery replaces Greer with Irwin)?

Can anyone settle a debate, sparked by the question of whether sex on a plane is illegal? If a baby is born, to (say) a Japanese mother and English father, on (say) an American aeroplane, flying through (say) Indian airspace, what nationality will the baby be, or be entitled to be?

Despite the sadness of the passing of the founder of one of my favourite ice cream parlours in Northern Ireland, Angelo Morelli, it is wonderful that the NI news team was zealous to record he was 99. May he find eternal rest in Knickerbocker Glory.
