Anyone fancy a dip? Swimmer, SW16 HELP! Unwanted stalker on train, old, smelly and insists on sitting next to me every night, Ive even swapped carriages! Suggestions very welcome! Trapped, SW1 MY MATE got his phone stolen at Bloc Party gig and now thinks Im rubbing it in by texting the Lite! Harsh? MarcnJack, DA1 MC (Txts, Wed): most annoying passengers? Those who surreptitiously place their rubbish on carriage floor. Litterbugs, no matter how you conceal it! Nick, TW9 SUCH beautiful warm days and you people are wearing long pants! Do as we Aussies do -- wear shorts and a pair of thongs. Comfy! James, Archway YES, Im wearing my suit jacket on the train, yes I am very hot and yes I have gone past the point of no return of avoiding disco pits -- hence the jacket! Thynne79, CM2 DAVE (Txts, Thur): the French say zero in tennis for the same reason we do not say egg. Bruce, BR2 WHO else loved yesterdays pic of Madonnas old lady hands? Just call me a bitch. Jax, BR3 NO DIMPLES (Txts, Thur): My lovely hubby has chin AND cheek dimples! Does that make him triply attractive?! I think so! Lucky, TW1 OVERHEARD on train: Texting is for people who cant afford phone calls. Is it true? Megan, GU14 SABRINA (Txts, Thur): Andy Murray is ALWAYS The Scot, winning or otherwise. Hamilton and Button ALWAYS The Brit never The Englishman. Confused, SW19 I HAVE porridge mixed with honey nut cornflakes. Mmm. Any other weird breakfast combinations? Michael, BR3 IM A lady of the Victoria line, so smile at me if you want me to smile! Plus I have dimples! Amy, Epsom HAS anyone seen any brightly decorated kangaroos that have appeared? Whats it all in aid of? Roo confused, SW17 THE guy on the swine flu advert looks just like Dr Cox from the TV show Scrubs! Any other weird lookalikes out there? Andrew, TN6 FLATMATE went into my room, took my laptop and didnt ask! Still annoyed! Should I put a lock on my door? Irritated, NW1 PUzzLED (Txts, Thur): how do you know bike takers were legit? Did they have yellow jerkins? Can get them anywhere to look official. Jez, London Is Ronald Biggs still dangerous? NOTHING stands up to Glastonbury. It may be losing some of its uniqueness now but Id prefer it to the bland commercialism of Reading and Leeds every year. Travis, EC3 GLASTONBURYS great but people should try out some of the foreign festivals. Exit festival in Serbia is hedonism on a plate! Kearney, Forest Hill THE problem with festivals is that theyve all got the same acts. Theres only so many times you can listen to the same band. I remember when Glastonbury stood out from the crowd. Tamara J, Kensington GLASTONBURY is my favourite festival. The streets around Primrose Hill are never quieter than when all the young luvvies head off for their yearly trip! Vance, Nunhead SOUTHEASTERN TRAINS is proposing to cut services and shorten trains to Hastings. But its OK, were relieved to know there will be more opportunity to catch a high- speed train to France! I want to go home, not travel to Europe every day. Heath, Hastings MARIA SHARAPOVA does not seem like a sportswoman anymore, just a model. But If you could earn millions more by posing, without having to graft, wed all do it! Derek, Herne Hill Another thing WhatisyourtributetoJackson?AreBritsinclimatechangedenial? Is Glasto the best music festival?

See thisislondon.co.uk/lite R ONNIE BIGGS only came back to Britain after squandering all the cash he stole in the Great Train Robbery in 1963. He did not serve anywhere near his sentence and parole officers are right to warn that he poses a risk of becoming involved with criminals on release-- even if he is very ill. He spent some of the best years of his life as a free man when he ought not to have. C Black, London ITS ironic that they are reluctant to let a 79-year-old dying man out of prison on parole but theyll quite happily let murderers and rapists out to commit further crimes after having served a fraction of their sentences. Bob, Cheam THE train driver Jack Mills died, his family says as a result of being beaten with a crowbar by the so-called Great Train Robbers. Until they apolo- gise to his family there should be no sympathy. Libby, Lambeth THE parole board isnt a charity case. Its purpose is to judge whether a persons attitude to crime has changed, and in Biggss case it clearly hasnt. The issue of his health doesnt even come into it. Leah, UB4 BIGGS came from nothing and saw how the greedy elite stole from the taxpayers. He was never a danger. He just stole from the wrong people. Gerald, London WE arent being harsh enough. He is receiving medical care at a cost of 37,500 a year. This man has been sunning himself in Brazil for the last 30 years and has contributed nothing to society. F Veiga, Stepney JUST because he is white and has a cockney accent people seem to view Biggs as some sort of roman- tic hero, like the Kray twins. In reality hes another greedy thug. Laura U, Angel ONCE hes out, just wait for the TV chat shows, PR representation by Max Clifford and a good laugh at what naughty boys they were.
