Sir: It is hard to believe that they really mean to foment subversion among our young by introducing "citizenship lessons" into the national curriculum ("Teachers call for little citizens", 28 October). They've presumably forgotten the meaning of words as usual.

We Ukasies are subjects, not citizens, our rights and responsibilities being the stuff of legislative happenstance, not constitutional guarantee. What they must actually intend for the kids is "subjecthood drill".
