Your Letters

13:30 UK time, Friday, 27 January 2012

At least the men can complain in inches. Over the past decade, my girth has increased (slightly) whereas my clothing size has fallen from 10 to eight to six. This can change within minutes on the same day between one shop and the next (Wallis lower, New Look higher and et al). Whatever happened to the pan-European EN-13402 standard?
R.G, Watford, Herts

Well Paper Monitor(s). As HM doesn't know who you (they) are, getting a gong is going to be a little difficult isn't it?
Aqua Suliser, Bath

So, Michael Winner now has on his notepaper "Michael Winner MA (Cantab), OBE (offered but rejected)." Can I have on mine "Rob Falconer OBE (not yet offered)"? Well, it's a lot less pompous than his.
Rob Falconer, Llandough, Wales

Paul Greggor, London (Thursday's letters): No, I think it's PC crashed.
John Thompson, Kirkby Lonsdale

J. Paul Murdock, Wall Heath, West Midlands, UK

Diane, Sutton (Thursday's letters): Maybe, as he's getting on in years, he's going to have a Blue Rinse Of Death?
MK, Stockport
