Frances Ryan (In plain view, 25 April) highlights yet another catastrophic treatment of people by the government: the freezing of the fund for disabled would-be politicians. I write not just for the deaf, my “disability”, but for all with a disability; I am disgusted at reading how some candidates were treated. There should be no barriers, and in the future I hope we do get, as Ryan says, the best candidate for the job.

• Page 2 of Wednesday’s G2 has (justified) sneers about the many column inches devoted to nothing on the royal baby. On the other hand, pages 6 and 7 are full of dreary stuff about the royal wedding, including speculative guff about what dress Meghan Markle might wear when the designer isn’t even known.

• Andy Bull (Sport, 25 April) is right: 100-ball cricket is not wanted by existing fans and no one knows if others will like it. It’s cricket for a neoliberal age. Those behind it should read Beyond a Boundary, CLR James’s classic book on cricket and wider society, and think again.

• Your piece on the prevalence of moths within households (Hate moths? Live in the east Midlands, avoid flats and vacuum a lot, 23 April), did not mention that the common clothes moth hates light. I leave the wardrobes open to the natural sunlight, which my wife hates, or you could fit lights inside your wardrobe.

• Re your article (Seven ways to manage hair loss, G2, 23 April). You forgot the eighth way: shave your head, unbelievably liberating.
