Louise, Essex Should we all have our water on a meter? I had no idea Paul OGrady, pictured, was leaving Channel 4. he used to lighten up my afternoons. But I do hope Graham Norton doesnt take over -- really I cant stand him. Katie, London Graham NOrtON has been wasted by the BBC. his Channel 4 show was one of the best tV shows ever. It was so innovative and funny. the BBC tried to turn him into Bruce Forsyth. Martin Bideau, Camden Its great news that Graham Norton may be going to Channel 4 as I never watch it. With him and russell Brand on there, my tV viewing will be safe. George, South Kensington noW experts are warning of the possibility the UK will suffer power blackouts in the near future, what should we do?

See thisislondon.co.uk/lite I m not normally a Boris fan but this is an excellent idea. I have been flabbergasted at the waste of some of my neighbours (leaving an over- flow pipe running for a month). time people were forced to take respon- sibility for water use. Mark Lee, Vauxhall Personally I think this is a silly idea. other parts of the planet may want for water, but on this wet island theres no shortage, except in the hottest of sum- mers. mayor Boris Johnson may suppos- edly have a good nose for politics, but in calling for household water meters hes way off target. Holly, Camberwell YES, the more you use, the more you should pay. now introduce the same fair- ness for council tax, Boris. Darius, London DoES Boris really think by sav- ing water here there will be more, say, in the Sahara? All of this because Boris dare not ask his friends in water companies to reduce wastage and invest in bet- ter infrastructure to store water. Nabil H, London How long will it be before they start meter- i n g h o w much air we use? water isnt a luxury, it is a necessity for life. S Port, London FIrSt they should put water meters in office buildings. we pay the same at our office as I do for my flat, but its 30 times the size. Ali, London mY wAtEr bills gone down by a third since I got a meter. why should I subsidise the baths of a family choosing to have three k i d s ? I f they pay more, they might be more careful in their water use. Squiz, Islington IF wE pay per drop, can we at least get water that isnt all chalked up?
