After making a draught excluder on Saturday (Mind the gap: draught excluders are back as Britons rush to cut energy bills, 17 December), I’m left wondering if it would have been more thermally effective to wear the towel, four pairs of socks, two pairs of tights, three vests and three pairs of knickers I needed to stuff it. I expect government advice on this soon.
• You say that Sir Simon Robey has “earned” £154m since setting up Robey Warshaw (Report, 16 December). Nobody earns that amount of money. I think the word you’re looking for is “trousered”.
• Was Lord Frost’s trousering of £26,090 “compensation” for voluntarily quitting his ministerial office after nine months his way of “making the most of post-Brexit ‘opportunities’” (Report, 17 December)?

• Film canisters are too useful to be hoarded empty (Letters, 16 December). Witness an example from my late dad’s stash containing “Fuses, may be no good”.
