A swallow puts an end to our isolation | Letters

I hope the LSE academics suggesting that some folk are embracing more common pursuits such as football in their Who’s Who entries (16 April) examined what the entrants actually submitted. I recall completing an entry to one biographical yearbook and stating my interest in “rugby league football”. When published, it said my interests were “rugby, league football”. I am convinced that my reduced majority at the next election was down to the belief that I was into rugby union and soccer.

o Your editorial (17 April) mentioned that nurses, GPs, occupational therapists and pharmacists are chartered. Physiotherapists are also chartered – and are particularly relevant in this pandemic, including musculoskeletal physiotherapists changing specialities to become respiratory physiotherapists.
Alex Hough

o I loved The Mirror and the Light, and Ulysses (Letters, 17 April), but not even Covid-19 could induce me to a second attempt at The Lord of the Rings.
