Your Letters

16:24 UK time, Thursday, 4 August 2011

A claims management company has texted me to say I'm entitled to up to £4000 in compensation for my car accident. I think I should get much more than that, since it caused such bad amnesia that I have absolutely no recollection of the accident itself or of ever having driven a car. Was I perhaps a passenger in one of your readers' cars? Could they please tell me where we were going and why?

Rachel of Wayzat (Wednesday letters), it would be a terrible faux pas to serve Garibaldis, especially free ones. Bourbons - now that's a regal dynastic choice, or a Royal Scot if available.
