Who are you all and what have you done with the real Londoners? Tutting Woman, SW19 DID anyone leave a book behind on a Jubilee Line train on Tuesday morning entitled The Importance of Being a Bachelor? other bizarre book finds? James, HA1 SaM (Txts, Wed): my office night out nightmare. I got drunk, was sick on client and then chopped off tip of middle finger in toilet door. Fair to say my night was over. Jane, London SaM: dancing to I kissed a Girl and as a drunken joke kissed my female manager. not going to this years do! Carol, SE13 eMPTIeD hole punch into bosss umbrella.

Charlie, W9 Thank you to the man who paid for my food when my card was declined because I didnt have any money. You have restored my faith in my fellow man. Tom, ME4 Should Thames beonTubemap? EDUCATION has turned into kids meeting targets and schools staying on top of the league tables. Its not about children experiencing the joy of learning something new. Lynn, Wapping ITS a national obsession to test children and where has it got us? Children are still being failed by this system. Tim M, Kingsbury WE CANT mollycoddle children. Surely its better to instill in young people the importance of dealing with exam conditions to better prepare them for life. ME, Tooting THERES nothing wrong with testing as long as it doesnt harm pupils overall learning. The emphasis should always be on children getting the best education. Caroline S, London Another thing Shouldcyclingthewrongwaybelegal?CanSuBobeastarinAmerica? Are children tested too much?

See thisislondon.co.uk/lite T HE Thames is not just another geographical feature of London, but a vital artery in the City where people work, travel and enjoy their leisure time. To remove it from the new Tube map is ridiculous. How can a natural feature highlighted on a map make it more cluttered? Esther G, Borough WHOSE idea was it to remove the Thames from Tube maps? TfL claims this decision will simplify the design but I beg to differ and I doubt I will be the only one to complain. If TfL bosses have another so-called bright idea about the maps can they please keep it to themselves? Mark, Southwark IVE seen the design of the new map and I doubt many people will notice. I think more people would be up in arms about Tube delays or missing their train than getting upset about a thick blue line in the middle of a map. Ian T, Aldgate I KNOW we live in a time where it is the fashion to dumb down everything that may be in danger of making people think, but to exclude the Thames from the Tube map is beyond a joke. Luke, Seven Sisters ITS so useful to have the river on the London Tube map. It provides a reference point, at a glance, to what is north and south London. D Mensah, Edgware IS NOTHING sacred anymore? Someone needs to send TfL back to the drawing board. Craig, Morden THE new map must have been designed by someone with no cultural under- standing or perspec- t i v e o f London whatsoever! Gary, London I HOPE people dont make too much fuss about the missing river. We all know the river is there. The new map is clearer to read.

Dont miss a single edition! Log on to: The archbishop of Canterbury is fair to question the pursuit of wealth and excessive materialism. But he is wrong to single out bankers. Their pursuit of profit may be un-Christian but it applies to all sectors from retailers to footballers. Martin, Clerkenwell rICkY GerVaIS is not funny. he was good in The office but in everything else hes the same character. Its not difficult to act yourself in a movie.
