Correspondents at cross purposes…

I thought I’d point out Adam Chard’s schoolboy error (letters, MW last week) before hundreds of angry Home Counties types beat him up. The Stella Artois Live Film campaign does clearly show a flag, but that’s about it as far as accuracy goes in your report and Mr Chard’s ill-conceived amendment. The flag is not the Scottish Saltire. The cross in the image is yellow, not white. Which means that the flag is of St Albans. As in the city of St Albans (not a small town). And it is flying above St Albans Abbey (not a church, technically). Stella has not made a mistake. In fact, the brand fit is perfect – as any resident will tell you, St Albans is also reassuringly expensive.
