SIR – Your suggestion that Robert Mugabe and Saddam Hussein be exiled together is excellent (“In praise of exile”, January 18th). Even better is your idea that Mr Mugabe could then lecture Mr Hussein on the intricacies of cricket. Being South African by birth, I naturally love cricket. My Canadian wife, having endured years of explanations of the noble game, states flatly that your proposal would be a fitting punishment.
I think "comes from a cricket playing country" is a definite requirement in a wife for yours truly. Thus I am still sorry about Miranda Otto's recent marriage.
