Janet Poliakoff asks why solar panels are being put in fields that could be used to grow food.
George Monbiot says that we should be growing food rather than using the land to produce biofuels (Why are we feeding crops to our cars when people are starving?, 30 June). Surely, then, it makes even less sense to put solar panels on land that could be used to grow food, when there are lots of roofs that can be used for them.Janet PoliakoffNottingham
Mark Wilcox (Letters, 5 July) writes that he is not going to be voting Labour because of Keir Starmer’s speech on Brexit. If we all do that, there will another five years of Tory rule, which would mean 17 years of them running this country into the ground. Polly Toynbee’s advice still holds – hold your nose and vote Labour!John RichardsOxford
As an offender myself until recently in this regard, I suggest that when Martin Kettle referred to Sajid Javid’s “coruscating” speech (6 July), he meant “excoriating”. The speech may indeed have been sparkling, but that is not the same as scathing. Apologies for such a minuscule point in the face of a Shakespearean tragedy.Jan ArriensBishop’s Castle, Shropshire
If you’re trying to stand on one leg with your eyes closed too, here’s a handy tip (Letters, 6 July). Hold one earlobe between your thumb and first finger while you do it. It really works – I’m 70 and I can balance for 20 seconds or so.Pam FraserCumnor, Oxfordshire
Surely it is now the moment for Murray Mound (formerly Henman Hill and also previously Rusedski Ridge) to be renamed Cameron Crest (Cameron Norrie digs deep to sink Goffin and set up Djokovic semi-final, 5 July)?Adrian BrodkinLondon
