W ELL to coin a phrase, the countrysides a great place to visit but I wouldnt want to live there. If figures show- ing the lowest number of families in a decade moving out of London means people are unable to sell at the right price, they can console themselves with the knowledge of a lucky escape. Get out to the sticks and for the first few hours its lovely. Then I notice that awful sound... absolute silence. At which point I zoom back to the London hubbub I love and live for. Julie, Hanmmersmith ThE trouble is Londoners watch old shows like heartbeat and get com- pletely the wrong idea. Unless you relish bored, drunken youths lolling around the village green, keep it short and quick in the country. Tom, Forest Hill No wAy! The country is as expensive as London but without the benefits. Public transport is non-existent -- it takes about a day to go just a few miles -- and you hardly ever see a police- man. People think rural is idyllic, forgetting parts of Cornwall have some of Europes worst living standards. Anil, London why do people imagine that anyone from the country leaves the moment they can for a larger community if there isnt a downside to rural life? I would particularly caution anyone who doesnt fit in ethnically or otherwise to think hard before they move to a rural location. I hate to say it but I do think that can be asking for trouble. Sarah Bradshaw, London different to do every night of the week. In an hour you can be out of the city but youll always want to come back. Ge, Kernow PLEAsE, town- ies, dont move to the country. weve got it just how we like it and dont need you lot to crowd the place out. I was once like you then wised up. Its great here. Ethan, Surrey ThE country- s i d e i s n t Third world. Its prettier, quieter and less polluted than the town. Lisa Kay, E16 I ThINK everyone should retire to the countryside. once weve earned it we should all turn our backs on the rude commut- ers, smoggy pollu- t i o n , w a i l i n g sirens and sweaty Tube. Anyone who stays in the capi- tal to endure all its drawbacks into their retirement is a fool. C Holland, SE1 LoNdoN is so exciting! you can live here for years a nd s t i l l f i nd something thats Rural life cant beat the thrills ofLondon Jointheclub:LondonersonanightoutinGreenwichsTHAT Has The Hoff still got his cool? DAVID HASSELHOFF, pictured, will always be a legend. After all, he was responsible for Pamela Andersons rise to stardom, and dont forget Knight Rider and Baywatch were hugely popular shows and are still cult today. Its great having him out and about on the London scene. Kim, Camden WHO cares what this guy thinks? He is just another old man. He fails to realise Baywatch was a joke -- it did not have any merit other than women hanging out of costumes. Clair, London HELL turn 57 on Friday, and yet hes still truly living the life. Give The Hoff the respect hes due. Baz, London EVERyOnE knows Hoff is a massive joke. Everyone, that is, except The Hoff. Ricardo, London I wIsh whitney houston all the luck with her long-awaited comeback. her talent has been wasted over the past years. Lets hope shes back on track, to continue to be an amazing singer. I look forward to hearing her new album in september.
