Who’s Zoomin’ Who is the song for right now

Jordan Henderson | Marmalade | Aretha Franklin | Poo for politicians | Long reads

While I applaud Jordan Henderson’s efforts (Jordan Henderson setting up Premier League coronavirus fund for NHS, 3 April), perhaps when we get to the other side of this crisis he might consider supporting a substantial increase in higher-rate taxes, which might go some way to ensuring that in future the NHS and care workers are not reliant on the generosity of socially conscious footballers.

• During the lockdown, I have been forced to make marmalade (Letters, 27 March) from the fruit I froze in January for later in the year, using what sugar I had in the store cupboard. The freezer space has become needed for other – if not more important – food.

• Surely any compilation CD of tunes for our time (Letters, 1 April) has to include Aretha Franklin’s 1985 classic Who’s Zoomin’ Who?

• Why stop at “boo for bankers” (Letters, 3 April)? Can I suggest “poo for politicians” every day at 7.30am?

• So pleased you’ve made the long read detachable in your print edition (Journal, 3 April); I’m stockpiling them.
