Whatever happened in the San Serriffendum? | Brief letters
Aung San Suu Kyi | HSBC’s gender neutral titles | Classifying exercise | Bristol University | April Fools’ DayAung San, father of Suu Kyi, recognised the divergent aspirations of the Shans, Mons, Karens, Chins, Burmans and a myriad of other national groups, including those like the Muslim Rohingyas who arrived and settled more recently (Report, 31 March). Independence from British rule was not just that, it was a challenge to form an inclusive Burmese identity not dominated by the majority Buddhist Burmans. Aung San Suu Kyi has never shown an understanding of the need to channel the contested idea of Myanmar identity into a constructive force. Instead, her view of Myanmar politics has been shaped by a single-minded focus on replacing the military rulers by elected rulers.SP ChakravartyBangor, Gwynedd• Why the retrograde step (HSBC to offer customers choice of gender-neutral titles, 31 March)? My current bank cards from HSBC carry no title, nor do letters in the Guardian. Unless it truly is optional, of course, and people wish to use such titles. Just please don’t say “the computer needs it”. I changed one bank account after it refused to accept creation of an account without a title.Hilary GrimeOxford Continue reading... [...]
