Your Letters

11:47 UK time, Tuesday, 22 November 2011

Anyone who moans about privacy today has missed the boat by around 20-25 years. The time to complain was just before widespread credit/debit cards and dial-up internet. No good moaning about it now, the horse bolted out of that stable decades ago.

Re: Should kids be made to remember every monarch? It gives them a base from which to learn history but I'm not sure it's absolutely essential. The attitudes of the rulers at the time affected the way the country carried out its business, so there's a benefit to knowing. But, to be honest, I'm not so sure the current school generation would know how to analyse or apply this information adequately. They're too busy learning other topics like "social studies" and media. That'll serve them well... Hmmm...

Bottom inflation "pumping parties"? Either the world has gone mad or I am past my sell-by date - or both. The quicker CERN discovers the secrets of time travel and gets me back to 1858 the better.

Paul (, may I also recommend the Museum of Prunes in Granges sur Lot, France. In the summer it also boasts a maize maze!
