Letter: Please stop being so boring, you British

Sir: Raj Persaud, writing in today's Independent on the nature of boredom ('Today you're bored. Tomorrow you're ill', 30 March), should try being a Canadian living in London. Also today, your theatre reviewer bores us all once again with the too, too tedious and predictable British approach to all things


If Canada's contribution to comedy 'is roughly on a par with Norway's to Eurovision', what on earth were John Candy, Gilda Radnor, Dan Aykroyd and most of the Saturday Night Live team thinking about when they arranged to be born in Canada?

Surely there is nothing more boring in all the world than the British telling everyone else how boring they are. Enough]

Yours sincerely,


London, N6
