Ben (Monday letters) seems to have missed the point of the public v private article. The "higher pension" and "higher pay" public sector workers are supposed to have is a myth - and this article, for once, relied on the facts to prove that, rather than rolling out the same old stories. It also highlighted that public sector workers do not get bonuses, and usually work unpaid overtime. Private sector workers seem to have all kinds of fantasies about how good it would be to work in the public sector - until they actually get a public sector job.

Congratulation to the Magazine, I think this is the first time I have ever seen a picture of Gordon Brown with a really genuine smile on his face.

Insurance for dogs? What about cats? They, and their smug owners, always seem to get away with it. I did write a lot more, but have decided to delete it to avoid being mugged by our local cat-lovers.

Well Sven (Monday letters), under the Army Act 1955 it is illegal to pass yourself off as having been awarded medals that you did not earn. However, Meyrick Clifton James impersonated Monty well before 1955... and in any case was not pretending that HE had earned any medals/ribbons he was wearing, he was pretending that he was Monty and Monty was entitled to them.
