Obituaries | Covid passports | Tennis | 100th birthday
• Every Saturday I am humbled to read the obituaries of people young and old, from a variety of backgrounds, who have made a valuable but largely unsung contribution to all facets of our society (Other Lives). Where else do we find such inspiration? What makes these pieces all the more affecting is that they are written by friends and relatives who have admired and loved these people over the course of their lives. These short accounts never fail to fascinate and move me.
• Interesting to hear Sajid Javid expressing his strong desire not to enforce the production of papers by those attending social events (Tory MPs fear return of Covid vaccine passports plan in England, 12 September). However, under current plans, proof of ID will be required for those wishing to vote. Surely not inconsistency from this government?
