Future Girl, London When describing the Underground to my three-year-old, should I be calling it the Tube Tube train?

Tiffany, SW15 geTTIng married next Friday and Ive still not got a pressie for my hubby. any original ideas out there? Stuck4ideas, E9 parTYgIrl (Txts, Thurs): for your boyfriends 40th you could take him to ladies night at Stringfellows for a meal and an ogle. hell love you forever. Anon, London JaX (Txts, Thurs): I completely disagree that ladies prefer clean- shaven. Stubble is way better. It makes men look sexy and rugged. Keep the stubble gents.

Star, CR0 Can Climate Camp make a difference? I HAVE to hand it to Victoria Beckham, pictured, even shopping she looks the part after being seen in stilettos for some retail therapy in Los Angeles earlier this week. But I wouldnt go tottering round Asda pushing my trolley in high heels. Lucy, Stockwell VIctorIA reminds me of a girl who has raided her mums wardrobe. Her clothes always look out of place and context. She has the look for a red carpet but not ordinary life. Ellie Claire, London tHErEs nothing wrong with having pride in your appearance! I look around Westfield and often wish people made more effort before leaving the house. Paula T, E14 OUr article of 19 June (Iran embassy staff secretly film British protesters) said that the mother of Michelle and Catherine palmer had fled Iran just before the 1979 revolution. In fact, she left Iran to study in london a number of years before the revolution, and did not flee for political reasons.

See thisislondon.co.uk/lite i f people came down to join the hundreds of people at the Climate Camp on Blackheath theyd feel less sceptical. Ive no desire to be in the media, but its good people are discussing climate change and how it can be an opportunity to transform our society in positive ways. Jeremy, Blackheath leTS face it -- the hundreds of people gathered to protest about global warm- ing and the environment may have the best intentions, but theyre not going to make a jot of difference. The real pur- pose is to make those there feel good about themselves -- thats all. Richard, Holloway I am delighted to see a generation of young people who realise something needs to be done and are setting about doing it -- with lots of humour and organisation. Best of luck to them all. Angela Phillips, London many of us object to being told how to live our lives by fanatics. Theyre just the latest bunch of ideologues who believe theyre entitled to impose their views o n o t h e r people. Go a n d d o something useful. Get a proper job. Mark, London I WoRK to pay the bills and put food on the table. These people clearly dont have such obligations. Mikkiduk, London WheTheR you agree or not, at least standing up for something is better than just complaining. JC, SE1 I WIll be there this weekend -- as I am most weekends. I love Black- heath. I do hope they leave the heath in a spotless state after. Maisie, London We donT need more information on climate change. Its all weve heard about from the Government and media for years, and all kids learn about in school. Kevin T, Beckenham Textpoll Q: Is the truth of Lockerbie release being hidden?
