I DON’T agree with TV critic Christo­pher Stevens’s neg­a­tive view of the doc­u­men­tary Smug­gled. It showed our bor­ders are por­ous and Bor­der Force is in­ef­fec­tual.

TERRY CALDON, Thanet, Kent.

UN­LIKE ac­tress Emma Wat­son, I am not self-part­nered (Mail). I’m fe­male-or­gan­ised — in other words, mar­ried.

MARK COHEN, Manch­ester.

GEN­DER neu­tral Os­cars will halve the length of the te­dious award cer­e­mony. But what will hap­pen if one sex wins more than the other?

ROGER DOBBING, West Mole­sey, Sur­rey.

NOW we have a new Speaker, may I say ‘B ****** s to Ber­cow’ for a fi­nal time.
