Brexit calls for a Hollies singsong | Brief letters


Until I was 70 I had IBS. I took a food intolerance test and the result revealed an intolerance to lactose (What’s weakening our guts?, G2, 18 February). I gave up dairy products and I’ve never had trouble since. I’ve been fine for the last 20 years. Constipation, which can be a result of food intolerances, causes swelling in the colon which then can lead to diverticulitis. Perhaps if people just got a food intolerance test, they could save themselves a lot of trouble.

The case for urgently lowering the voting age from 18 to 16 throughout the UK emerges inescapably from the well-informed, articulate and cogently expressed arguments that we have been hearing from young people over the past few days (Thunberg: ‘EU must double its targets to cut global warming’, 22 February).

Never mind Bus Stop/backstop (Letters, 21 February), every time Brexit is mentioned I sing any of these songs by the Hollies: I Can’t Let Go, Stop Stop Stop, Stay or Heading For a Fall.

After mention of Dave Dee, Dozy, Beaky, Mick and Tich (Letters, 22 February) did anyone else immediately think of Theresa May’s multitalented team of Brexit negotiators?

It’s obvious how the stones of Stonehenge were transported from the Preseli hills to their final resting place: by the ancient method of rock’n’roll (Report, 20 February).
