l I DON'T need to know what size socks Sir Richard Greenbury wears ("Quotes of the week" 23 July). I already guess that his feet are fairly big. At least one of them has been put in things that "ordinary" employees would lose their jobs over. On the other hand/foot, they must be just big enough to have gained the instant attention of the Chancellor, whose footwear is also known to allow for speedy "U" turns.
