East or west London? East because its where I live and what I know. Singing or playing guitar? Definitely singing because everyone these days plays guitar! Glastonbury or Bestival? Id say Glastonbury (left) but it is a tough one, more surprises happen at Glastonbury. Rock or pop? Pop but especially not pop rock. Small intimate club or massive festival crowd? Small intimate club because we havent played to massive festival crowds. Also, as a punter I would say intimate clubs because there is more detail and the gig is in your hands. Age and wisdom or youth and beauty? Definitely age and wisdom, more important than looks. MySpace or Facebook? MySpace, I owe a lot to it. Its more music orientated than social I think. The Beatles or the Stones? It has to be The Beatles. Early riser or leisurely lie-in? For a minute there I thought you said easy rider! Am an early riser. CD or iPod? CD, or what was the point in me saving pocket money and buying CDs if I cant use them? Its financial for me. David Cameron or Gordon Brown? Brown (left) but theyre both a bit flat. GEORGINA LITTLEJOHN Wife-killertaking the Knowledge isalreadydriving his own minicab Driversrisktheir lifebyTweeting Thousands of motorists are risking their lives by Tweeting while at the wheel. about one in 10 use social networks or other internet functions on the road despite knowing it is illegal, says a survey by online insurer esure. The trend has been accelerated by smart phones giving easy online access. Tweets apparently sent by drivers in the past week include: haha twitter and driving...u can do 2 things at the same time, am most nervous because apparently cant tweet while driving. Who knew?! and hard to tweet when driving!. Research says drivers who are texting are 23 times more likely to have an accident. TRANSPORT bosses are accused of not putting passenger safety as a priority after granting a minicab licence to a wife-killer. It was revealed last week that paranoid schizophrenic Shamsul Haque is now also studying the Knowledge to become a black cab driver -- causing Transport for London to launch an inquiry into how the information was leaked. But John Kennedy, of the RMT unions cab section, said: Finding out this guy is a minicab driver just makes it worse. TfL is in a different world. Our priority is to protect the public and their priority seems to be a witchhunt against the per- son who exposed their behaviour. In a letter to the London Assembly, Jeroen Weimar, TfLs chief operating officer for enforcement, says: After [Haque] was granted permission to study the Knowledge, he applied to be a private hire driver. As the conditions are virtually the same as for starting the Knowledge, he was also granted a private hire drivers licence. He also describes last weeks stories as a disappointing breach of Haques right to privacy, adding: An investigation into this leaking of personal data has begun. As well as strangling his wife in 2000, Haque, who drives for a London minicab firm, was cautioned three months ago for assaulting his daughter. The conviction for the killing is now spent and he has been given the all-clear by doctors. TfL has ordered an independent review of its actions. by mArk blunden Fears: cabbie unions are concerned about passenger safety H index.html2.html3.html4.html5.html6.html7.html8.html9.html10.html11.html12.html13.html14.html15.html16.html17.html18.html19.html20.html21.html22.html23.html24.html25.html26.html27.html28.html29.html30.html31.html32.html33.html34.html35.html36.html37.html38.html39.html40.html41.html42.html43.html44.html45.html46.html47.html
