Your Letters

I have noticed more often than not that news programmes show the Union Flag being displayed "upside down". Now I know that it is not the BBC's actions but, could not our World renowned broadcaster please indicate to the masses - including the rest of the world - the proper orientation of our Flag. Only this morning I saw it being brandished upside down by our Olympic standard bearer.

"There's always a mad dash to the maternity ward before a mother gives birth" - no there isn't. After the swift arrival of child number one involving a mad dash at Friday rush hour, we chose an NHS homebirth for child number two. Essential equipment delivered a couple of weeks before and the midwives did the travelling. Much happier all round and no CCTV!

Oh Monitor, dear Monitor. About those missing letters [and other instances]. With your gracious acceptance of praise and your deft deflection and ducking of blame, you must be a man,yes? And now I shall stand firm and upright and take the responses right on the chin, just like a real woman.
