Racism, sexism and classism | Rwanda asylum costs | Shopping trolley heart checks | Glutton-free? | Sinatra’s funeral songs.
The report by the Independent Commission for Equity in Cricket (Icec) has clarified the unholy trinity of racism, sexism and class in the sport (Report, 27 June). Isn’t it time for a similar investigation into Westminster and our whole political system and parliament?
Now that the Icec has reported on cricket, might I suggest that a similar report is commissioned for both rowing and rugby.
“Should we employ five extra nurses?” asks Steve Barclay. “No,” says Suella Braverman. “Let’s send one asylum seeker to Rwanda instead” (Sending asylum seekers to Rwanda will cost £169k a person, says Home Office, 27 June).
I’d add a further modification to the cardio-sensitive shopping trolley (Letters, 26 June). It needs to be programmed to expect sudden tachycardia as the checkout person tells you the cost of your shopping.

I’ve just received a WhatsApp message from a friend about a new restaurant. I’m not sure if it’s a victim of autocorrect or not (Letters, 25 June), but apparently it’s “vegan and glutton-free”.
