Refugees and the residents trapped in a stormy port

ON THE promenade above Dover's pebble beach a plaque commemorates those who served in the Second World War protecting "Frontline Britain". Half a century on many locals would have you believe nothing has changed and that the town famous for its white cliffs and ferry terminals deserves the same description. This time they are defending the frontline not against Hitler, but asylum-seekers pouring in from the Continent.

Letter: State imposition

MICHAEL WATTS refers to the 1801 Act of Union as evidence that Northern Ireland is not a colony (Letters, 8 August). That is very selective use of historical fact. The Act was supported by imposed Protestant rulers in Ireland whose dominance of Irish politics was in direct inverse to their proportion of Ireland's population. The legitimacy of the Act of Union has always been, therefore, in doubt - a situation comparable to the imposition of apartheid by minority white rulers in South Africa in 1948.

Theatre: My night with a well-made, unsurprising drama

THERE ARE, heaven knows, enough badly made plays around that it seems positively wasteful to start complaining about the well-made ones - we ought to be petting and nurturing them. But half the trouble with Kevin Elyot's The Day I Stood Still - his first play since My Night with Reg - is precisely that it is so well made, stifled by its own technical proficiency and symmetry.
