Mouse house is very, very, very fine house

The Guardian - Journal - - Letters -

There is a ri­val for the worst BBC soap opera (Costa del LOL , G2, 9 July): Tri­an­gle, set aboard a North Sea ferry, where Kate O’Mara had to sun­bathe in sub-zero tem­per­a­tures. How­ever, I re­tain a last­ing af­fec­tion for Rev­e­la­tions, Granada’s sex in the bish­opric soap, which boasted ap­palling di­a­logue and (as far as we could tell) only three lo­ca­tions.

My grand­fa­ther, born 1872, al­ways re­ferred to woodlice (Coun­try diary, 7 July) as “Gram­fer Krugers”. I never asked at the time, but guess there was some con­nec­tion to the Boer war.

I showed the mouse who lives in our log pile the pho­to­graph of the splen­did home the Sh­effield mouse lives in (Let­ters page photo, 12 July). He/she now wants to move north.

Bad enough to mis­quote one of Paul Si­mon’s most fa­mous lyrics as “the fire still re­mains”, but to re­peat it in a quote box as “Si­mon’s mu­si­cal epi­taph” (Mu­sic re­view, 12 July)? The clue is in the ti­tle – The Boxer is a fighter and re­mains so.

Al­though the num­bers and hands on Big Ben were orig­i­nally Prus­sian blue (St Ge­orge’s cross to reap­pear on the face of Big Ben, 12 July), shouldn’t they be painted Bri­tish rac­ing green so as not to of­fend the Brex­iters?
