'Fringe' and brackets

September 1, 2011

The illustrations accompanying the article on the mess of funding arrangements in the different parts of the UK filled me with dismay ("Toll barriers", 25 August): England is urban and modern; Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland rural and therefore not modern.

With an editorial mindset like that, I was surprised not to find phrases such as "Celtic fringe" in the article.
