Germany Peter Cain: As a longtime Geordie exile in Germany with a sturdy Teutonic beer belly to prove it, I must take you to task over your vicious assault on the hallowed German beer purity law, ‘Reinheitsgebot’. The shelves of my local supermarket are replete with cans of fizzy, heartburn-provoking foreign pop masquerading as beer approaching its best-poured-straight-down-the-toilet date.The Veltins and the Bitburdger are being carted off by the crate-load. If it don’t comply with ‘Reinheitsgebot’, it ain’t gonna sell in Germany.
Hugs All Around
Isle of Man Daphne MacOwan: We are told that we must not hug our dogs any more. That’s all well and good, but what should I do when my German shepherd dogs hug me?

And More Fuzzies
London Jenny Weinstein: As a neighbour of Sadiq Khan, I can assure your correspondent that I and most of his constituents do have ‘warm, fuzzy feelings’ about his mayoral success. I have never encountered anyone locally, whatever their politics or ethnicity, who does not know and respect Sadiq. His tireless dedication to local people and issues that are important to them, his good humour and his attention to detail have won this loyalty. In his thank you letter to activists, he characteristically said “this is not about me, it is about Londoners”. Once Londoners get to know him, there will be warm, fuzzy feelings all round.
