retired Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson’s most recent triumph was his race horse, If I had Him, winning the Channel Islands Champion Hurdle in the lovely island of Jersey on Sunday (Sport, 15 July).

Sir Alex’s comments after the race included the statement: “I think the prize for winning the race is something like £3,000, so it’s not going to change anyone’s life.”

I think there are many people in the country currently on the modern day “bread line” who might vehemently disagree with him.
