I disagree with Derek Price’s criticism of Lauren Bravo’s column of January 24.

For me, it was one of her best as, usually, I find her subjects flippant, although extremely well-expressed.

At GCSE level, her English grade was one of the best in the country and she has an enviable grasp of language and literacy.

The point she made in the article on chivalry was that good manners for all, regardless of gender or age, should be the norm and would benefit the society in which we live.
