Yesterday, I made a donation to the Oxfam East African Famine Appeal, following Bill Nighy highlighting the horrific situations in Kenya, Somalia, Ethiopia and South Sudan on TV (Report, 11 March).

The Football Association will investigate Millwall fans for singing what are deemed racist chants which demoralised a player so much that he scored an excellent hat-trick (Report, 13 March), while Spurs fans chanted that Millwall fans were “pikeys” and “the wheels on the house go round and round”. Who determines who is offended and what needs investigating?
