She hit me in the face with a bottle. Note to self, never be nice. Ali, Southend ObScure cable channel clairvoyant on train to London talking loudly on his phone about how he is a celebrity now. Tragic! Battersea Bee, SW11 TwO women walking down fenchurch St with huge lilos inflated and moaning about commuters -- wheres the beach?! Lisa, ME5 TO THe rather large lady with a tracksuit saying Life Guard on the back: I assume you save lives by the water displacement method. Andrew, W1 caN anybody tell me why they never use green olives on pizza? Lol, Essex aSked waitress if the baby ribs came from a real baby. She said: dunno. Its a new menu, but I can ask the chef for you if you like. Ollie, EN5 cLaIre (Txts, Tue): infectious yawns date back to caveman days where the tribe leader would yawn to signal everyone to sleep, hence everyone would see it and go to sleep. Its all psychological. Elliot, WD6 cLaIre, your yawn text made me yawn!! How can it be infectious on paper? Donna, SE3 TO the guy who does gym moves on the platform at west Malling every morning -- youre an embarrassment to yourself and others! Please stop! Statue, ME19 PeTe (Txts, Tue): champagne used to be bad wine spoilt by refermentation. french binned it. we drink anything David, E14 aNyONe else think dolly couldnt be more right in the song 9 To 5?! Tom, BN7 HaVe a five-hour car drive with my 16-year-old daughter to come. Music choice to surprise her? Thoughtful Dad, EC4 SuSPIcIOuS (Txts, Tue): most lunch dishes start with S as lunch always comes before Tea! Dave, Essex I beLIeVe in a lift for a lift, yet friend believes in charging petrol money left, right and centre. am I in the minority?! Driver, EC7 cHrIS (Letters, Tue): I believe the reason there are no Tubes south of the river is because the ground there is chalk and not clay as it is on the north side. Smart, N1 dOeS anybody know where the Secret beer Garden is? John, N1 Id feel extremely guilty carrying designer-inspired lookalikes. wouldnt you? Its so not done! Nirmal, Essex Should Bogof be banned? I LOVE Michael Jackson but Im glad the O2 tribute concerts have been cancelled. It was only another event motivated by money. Let the man rest in peace. He got no peace when alive so let him finally have some in death. He was, quite simply, the best entertainer. Ever. JB, Sussex ALL the people who bought tickets for Michael Jackson gigs wanted to see him, not some makeshift show. Get new stars like Leona Lewis, pictured, together, dont mention Jacko and see how many tickets they dont sell. Terence, south London THE promoters should leave him alone now. Michael, London wHy is it the fashion for men to have smooth, hairless chests these days? In my day, a boy didnt become a man until he had some chest hair. Now the men all look like plastic dummies -- horrible! Shows how old I am. Jan S, Morden brad PITT is not carrying his years better than angelina Jolie. at 34, she looks much better despite being a little thin. brad definitely looks all of his 45 years.

See thisislondon.co.uk/lite I think the Government is spot on to ask supermarkets to shelve buy- one-get-one-free offers and make goods half-price. ive often picked up two of something perishable when i only needed one, because it didnt cost any more. then i ended up throwing the second away after it grew fur. Nigel, London One fifth of traffic on public roads carries food waste such as discarded Bogof items from homes to landfill. We can cut into pollution levels by dropping these wasteful offers. L Mack, London if the supermarkets want publicity, they should promote goods as half-price. if they end up with leftovers, they should pay for the waste disposal themselves, not scam us into taking their excess. A Quashie, Hornsey the Government should take tips from tesco, Asda and Sainsburys on how to cut costs, save money and keep people happy, instead of dispensing unsolicited advice likely to do more harm than good! Daisy Willetts, London itS ironic t h a t t h e Government is lecturing private busi- ness about waste! Weve had record levels of public investment for very little in return, so perhaps there is some wastage within the Governments own budget! Russel H, Notting Hill Once again the Government speaks without having a clue. typically a Bogof deal is subsidised by the supplier/producer and costs the supermarket very little. they are not going to start reducing prices just because Bogofs end. Alop Lop, Camden LOOkinG to reduce food wastage? Do away with use by dates and force people to use their own common sense (as well as their senses of taste and smell) to decide if something is off or not.
