It’s great you can name the Dolce and Gabbana models (G1, page 9, 24 September), but why not the “demonstrator” on your front page? After all, he’s been in your photos before. His name is Steve Bray and he is well known and respected among remainers. He protests outside the Commons when it is in session and has done so every day since the referendum.

• I wonder if there isn’t a smidgen of gender-stereotyping in Hadley Freeman’s tale of a male tutor in her university years (Weekend, 22 September). I was a female student in the late 1960s and at that time some of us used, scornfully, to call the sort of tutor’s actions she describes as “trying it on”, some of us showed off our supposed sexual liberation, and more than one of us, dear reader, married him. Isn’t the gender/power scene more complex and more complicated than it seems to be here?

• Ivan Volodin, the Russian chargé d’affaires, says: “Russia is always happy to welcome international guests if they arrive in a lawful manner and with good intentions” (Letters, 25 September). I’m guessing there’s no word in Russian for “irony”.

• Your “Seven ways to overcome loneliness” (G2, 24 September) was useful, but haven’t you missed one out? Meeting friends in the pub for a drink!

• I realise that a lot of letters originate from readers west of the Pennines and that some subscribers on the east side might feel resentful. But two letters on the same day from the same Yorkshireman (Letters, 25 September) is surely over-compensation.
