In recent accounts of Labour party activities in the Guardian, I have seen no mention of Keir Starmer’s decision to abolish the post of shadow minister for peace and disarmament earlier this month. This seems to be another retrograde step by the Labour leadership. Surely we need a party that will stand clearly for peace and abiding by international law?

• Deputy assistant commissioner Stuart Cundy says the harder the police worked, the more cases of misconduct and possible criminality would be uncovered (Size of a small police force’ of Met officers are suspended or on restricted duties, 19 September). Isn’t that fundamental to how policing works? You catch more speeding motorists if you go and look for them. I’m glad he understands that too.

• I am shocked that young people are being urged to look for “roles requiring minimal effort for the same reward” (Burnt-out from work? Try following Hugh Jackman’s 85% rule, 15 September). Would never have happened in my day.

• Liz Truss blames “groupthink” for the economic damage that happened under her watch (Report, 18 September). Wasn’t it her “crapthink” that was the actual causative factor?

• Liz Truss needs to reflect on the former Labour chancellor Denis Healey’s first law of politics: when you are in a hole, stop digging.
