Ken Dodd | ID cards | Typos | Boris Johnson | Birthday wishes
Toby Wood is quite right to describe Bob Dylan’s Like a Rolling Stone as the song that changed the course of popular music in the 1960s (Letters, 28 May). It influenced a generation of musicians and is regularly voted the greatest song of all time. All the more remarkable, therefore, that it did not reach No 1 in the UK charts and was kept off the top spot in September 1965 by the equally revolutionary Tears by Ken Dodd.
• It is not a legal requirement in France to carry identity documents at all times (Letters, 21 May). The possession of an ID card is a convenience, and purely voluntary.
