Totally uncool, Erith lOMC (Txts, Fri): they should send Royal Mail workers pay cheques by post. Guarantee no more strikes. Sorted (boom, boom). Peter, SE3 READING about moobs reductions up 1,000 per cent by British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons. Aka Baaps. Are they just being punny? Giggling, N6 WOMAN pushed in front of me in coffee queue while holding the book How To Be A Better Person. Well, for a start... Toe, BR1 SECRET ADMIRER (Txts, Fri): I hand my business cards to handsome guys on the Tube ALL the time! We only live once! James, W1 SECRET ADMIRER: a guy handed me his business card in a street near Waterloo two years ago. Were getting married in April. Fortune favours the brave! B, TW11 DAISED (Txts, Fri): salami is pork or beef, Mortadella is made from donkey -- or used to be. Mick, TN39 LONDON runners: when another runner passes you, smiles and nods, please do the same. I keep getting ignored! Jog On, London MISS GREY (Txts, Fri): I have three Shouldnt but woulds -- Boris Johnson, Ricky Gervais & Jeremy Clarkson! Amy, LU1 MISS GREY: mine is Frank Skinner. Hes just too funny to resist. Still laughing, RM17 MISS GREY: mine is Max Branning from EastEnders. He could just wrap me around his little finger. Oh the shame! Strictly Anon, SE3 MISS GREY: my shouldnt but would... Peter Jones from Dragons Den. Think its the power thing and the height! Chloe, Upminster ANYONE else on the Jubilee line train on Thursday at Canary Wharf, when the platform doors opened and the trains ones didnt? We ended up in North Greenwich. Baffled, E14 SPECIALFI (Txts, Fri): I left a copy of Goodfellas on a Westminster bus for exactly the same reason. Pay it forward! Jessid The Duck, SE9 MY MATES and I want to meet the man who announces at Cannon Street! Would this be possible? Gemma, DA7 TRIED to cycle along empty stretch of road in central London at weekend and was told by police I wasnt allowed because of Skyride -- the Mayors event to encourage cycling! Rob, Bethnal Green HAS anyone seen the Queen lately? lve not heard from her since her Christmas message and want to make sure shes okay. DanXochs Dad, SS2 ShouldGames costs be cut? I USED to like the show but now it has been dragged into the gutter. I feel bad for the professional dancers who have spent years honing their skills, and now its being made cheap by stupid producers. M Cole, Parsons Green I STILL cant get over the fact that Alesha Dixon, right, is a judge. Why couldnt they ask one of the professional dancers such as Karen or Camilla, who are leaving and will be missed? Harvey, Willesden Green STRICTLY is just great TV. The routines and the fabulous sparkling costumes make it a glamorous night in front of the box. How could anyone dislike watching celebrities trying to show off their dancing skills? Charlotte, Blackwall PEACHES GELDOF and I are about the same age and frankly I admire her for not conforming to the Barbie look of the moment. The girl has her own style and isnt a carbon copy. Katrina, Mill Hill IN LAST Tuesdays Quotes Of The Day we attributed the words: If you do that youre finished, not only as a political force, but as a human being to union chief Brendan Barber. It was, in fact, GMB boss Paul Kenny. We apologise for the error. Another thing Are plus size models OK? Should Trafalgars hawk stay? Will Strictly be as good this year?

The Government, the National Lottery and the Mayors office are already contributing billions to this project which exceeded its original budget even before they started digging up the east London site. It means Londoners are paying not once, but three times for the Games to run for just over two weeks. Its ridiculous. Peter, Hillingdon I WAS really pleased and proud when London was chosen to host the 2012 Games but that was before I knew about the spiralling costs. Its time for the Olympic bosses to come back down to earth and get real. The reality is these Games are too expensive and compro- mises need to be made before every Londoner resents the event. Steve, Crouch Hill BRING on the Olympics. As soon as people see the opening cere- mony they will forget about all the petty squabbles over money. RK, Soho THERE is a global economic downturn yet the Olympic board has the audacity to ignore Boris John- sons demands to cut costs. Is it really fair for people to shoulder these costs when the country is in a recession? Sophia R, Bayswater LONDONERS and taxpayers are being acutely short-changed. No one would vote to pay 9bn for two weeks of Games but that is what we are doing due to the arrogance of Olympic chiefs. Mike, London PEOPLE need to get a grip about this. When all is said and done the 2012 Games will be a great showcase not just for the sportsmen and women of this country, but also for what this nation can deliver in terms of world-class sports venues and entertainment. Beijing will have nothing on what we will offer. S Ellis, Highbury Textpoll Q: Is Nick Cleggs 1m homes supertax right? OurlastresultAre BBC presenters paid too much?
