Your Letters

16:07 UK time, Monday, 25 October 2010

Why, when reading suffering is relative, did I think of my mother-in-law?
R Perrin, Climthorpe, UK

Firstly, this is horrible news. Secondly is it too much to ask that the fine amounts be given in sterling. That's what I paid my licence fee in, blah blah blah.
Phil, Guisborough

Re: Alex Kersting (Friday's letters) - Neither do I. Perhaps someone could fill me in.
Mr Bun, the baker, Aberdeen

I saw your headline Freeman to play Bilbo in Hobbit. Bit disappointed now to find out it's not Morgan.
JennyT, NY Brit

Is Magazine Monitor aware that its distant cousin "Frontpage Latest News Tickertape Thingy" can apparently travel in time? It's one of only two logical explanations for the tense of this headline: "BA says it will restore basic travel concessions to cabin crew who went on strike next week". The other explanation being an unfortunate case of truncated headline grammar - but that can't be it, surely?
Louise, Bedfordshire, UK

A brilliant idea in an age of defence cutbacks - rather than paying for expensive stealth material, keep your submarine hidden from enemy eyes by claiming it's stuck in Scotland. A quick rigged news conference, and HMS Astute can be anywhere in the world before anyone realises that the pictures were Photoshopped.
Edward Green, London, UK

Royal Navy nuclear sub "grounded"? Did it stay out late at a party?
Rob Falconer, Llandough, Wales

Re: 10 things number four. Am I the only one that thought big cat camouflage was common knowledge?
Robyn, Cheshire

I was surprised to read the link Elephant damage "good for frogs", although as so few frogs survive being damaged by elephants, I imagine those that do probably acquire some sort of celebrity status.
Graham, Purmerend NL
