Letter: Champagne socialism

Sir: Congratulations to the Labour Party. However, after watching their celebrations on Friday morning can I offer this advice, which may avoid embarrassment in the future? Twisting a champagne cork usually produces one of two results: a broken cork or a deluge.

After removing the retaining wire hold the bottle at 45 degrees and apply firm thumb pressure inwards on the cork where it joins the bottle. Repeat two or three times before gently twisting the cork to remove.
