Clarets fans can avoid blue passport misery | Brief letters | Environment

The global plastic binge (Report, 26 December) needs more than “serious source reduction efforts”. I have just completed a dry-season 10-day voyage along the Irrawaddy river in Myanmar, and did a similar trip down the Mekong river in Vietnam last year. The river banks are sadly festooned with plastic waste tipped there in the absence of municipal refuse collection. Come the rainy season the whole lot will be swept into the sea.

My front garden has become a repository for rubber bands. Does the Post Office do an annual audit of them?

I would like to take issue with Margaret Prosser’s comments regarding moon boots (Letters, 21 December). I still have my boots from the 1970s, which I wear when the snow has freshly fallen. When it starts to ice over, I use my crampons, which fit over my ordinary shoes and boots. I’m still upright and just shy of 69.

Elvis McGonagall (Letters, 19 December) could have added another UK road song from the incomparable Half Man Half Biscuit’s oeuvre. Bottleneck at Capel Curig appears on the wonderfully named Trouble over Bridgwater album.

I voted remain. I support Burnley Football Club. When they take away my burgundy passport (Letters, 27 December), I’ll simply put a Clarets cover on the new blue one.
