Manchester City’s “historic” fourth title (19 May) is perhaps not so surprising since they are the richest club; runners-up Arsenal are the second-richest, and the bottom club, Sheffield United, the second-poorest. A league that I created, by calculating points won per club value in billions of euros, puts Luton Town way out in front (208 points per billion) and Manchester City second from bottom (72 points per billion). Hats off to Luton!

• As a student in Dundee in the 1960s, I asked at a shop for spring onions and was told “It’s not spring yet” (Letters, 21 May).

• When my boyfriend went into a chemist in Bishop’s Stortford in 1977 for a treatment for crabs, he was told, nose-in-the-air, that this was an urban complaint. Hackney, probably.

• Adrian Chiles (23 May) can’t find a good definition for “populist”. I can’t discover one for “socially conservative”. Can anyone help?

• A populist is someone who thinks that there is always an easy answer to a difficult question.
