Reader, I married her

From John Laughland

Sir: My article on luxury fencing bags by Bibikov (Luxury goods, 5 November) omitted an important detail and has consequently caused a stir among the nation’s gossip columnists. Your readers might be amused to know that, having written the piece earlier this year, I loved the bags so much that I married the designer.
