Six parliamentary party leaders unite to call for an inquiry into the prime minister’s consistent failure to be honest (Report, 19 April). But not the Labour leader because, according to a spokesman, Labour does “not normally sign up to initiatives launched by other parties”. What a stupid attitude, and a very good example of why Labour is failing to make any headway with the public.

• As the son of a victim of postpartum psychosis many years ago, I was particularly interested in Laura Dockrill’s experience of this little-known, dreadful illness (‘I thought I’d been hijacked by a devil’, 19 April). The small charity that is mentioned, Action on Postpartum Psychosis, is doing sterling work in this neglected field and can be contacted on 020 3322 9900 or app@app-network.org

• Your paper rarely refers to the B117 variant as the “British variant”. So why does your headline (What do we know about the Indian coronavirus variant?”, 19 April) refer to the B.1.617 variant as the “Indian variant”. Let’s not call it the Indian variant, please, if for no other reason than that it sounds too Trumpian.

• If the letters page is going to become a means of reuniting long-lost friends (Letters, 18 April), then it would help if maiden names were added, where applicable. Not that it would help me much.

• Some of us “read” the Guardian (Letters, 19 April).
