Letter: ... feed them

Sir: I would certainly rather Michael Stone did not eat his meat and two veg or his foil-wrapped sandwiches and packet of crisps next to me in the library, but I have no problem with him having a drink of milk.

I also assume he does not howl lustily when hungry and result in bosoms leaking in response. When a breast-fed baby needs feeding the best thing to do is feed them there and then; discreetly and modestly certainly, but surely drinking milk in public is socially accepted in any setting?
