HOW I agree with your correspondent Christopher Clapham on standards. When I went to school, we had to wear green blazers. We were always proud of them. It set a good standard for later in life.

As regards TV presenters without ties, I think it is very disrespectful and looks very untidy. The standard in life has gone down. Litter just thrown down and left in the countryside. Please bring back some standards.
