Speedy Boarder, Edmonton Anyone else notice the awful pigeon smell at Canning town station? Mark, W8 IsLondonareal foodieparadise? The Pirate Bay, logo pictured, and other web piracy- linked sites have had their day. Theres no point with lots of file-share or streaming sites out there. The music industry worked out how to make cash from the Net. Tom, Finsbury Park UNless sites such as spotify and YouTube can guarantee to have the music I want on demand then Ill look elsewhere, even if it means what are possibly illegal downloads. Coleen H, DA12 I sTIll go on illegal download sites, but only when my flatmates out and only on his computer. I wouldnt run the risk myself.

Theres plenty wrong with our city, but eating out here is one thing thats a pure joy. The range of world cuisines and the fact you can splash the cash or get a value meal in pretty much any area means theres never been a better time to be a London diner. Harry, Richmond LONdON is the most culturally diverse capital in the world. Thus we are the food capital of the world. Where else on the planet would you be able to sit down for a great curry, and then right next door buy some jellied eels? Robyn, London WeRe a global leader in finance, sport, tourism and culture. Now it seems were top dog at food as well. London consist- ently proves why it is the best city in europe. Parisians must be crying into their frogs legs soup. Paula Sewell, Isle of Dogs IM LOOKING forward to the festival in October, but a culinary tour of London isnt complete without a greasy doner kebab. The organisers have somehow left that off the itinerary. If they want to show a true taste of London they need to get folk down Brick Lane on a Saturday night. Morgan, London I caNT wait to go for a meal on a Routemaster bus in the festivals Gourmet Odyssey on 10 October! I just hope the driver is careful round bends because I dont want my coq au vin all over my lap! Joe Cross, London a FOOd festival in London? dont m a k e m e laugh. With a l l t h e chains and fast-food vendors, Londons food scene has never been worse off. Michaela, London THe festival looks great. and Ive now also got November block- booked for the diet.
