SIR - I was sad to see news of the death of Captain Sir Tom Moore, a great man who did great things.

Then we get this ridiculous spat between Piers Morgan and Beverly Turner because she wouldn't clap for him. Then Morgan "blocked" her. This is where civilisation has now got to. Someone "blocking" someone on Twitter because they refuse to stand clapping like an imbecile for 60 seconds. Well done Piers, you've reached a new low and you called her pathetic.

It's now time for the human race to pull up the drawbridge and call it a day.
