Mark, London dANXOCHS dAd: Her Majesty is in Scotland for the summer (or whats left of it). Shes well and should be back shortly. KeepingTabsMan, SW1 Is it okay to use Size 14 models? THE hawk thats used to fly in Trafalgar Square to scare off the pigeons saves money. The reduction in cleaning up pigeon droppings from the pavements and buildings has resulted in a fall in costs far, far greater than the 60,000 a year price of using the hawk. James, London ILL pop down there with my shotgun every evening for 50! That would be a third of the cost and no chance of the creatures returning. Mark, London SURELY itd be cheaper to get Ken Livingstone to squawk and flap around Trafalgar Square? He has proved hes very good at flapping and making lots of noise. Bob, Cheam bOriS JOHNSON said he hoped the London Skyride cyclists would not intimidate pedestrians or annoy drivers. Yet i had to jump out of the way of three of these riders on the pavement at High Street Ken and another lot who rode through a red light. Gatita, London i HAVe a solution to improve Strictly. They should bring Arlene back with Anton du beke and Alesha as the presenters. instant upgrade! Lambo, east London Another thing Should Lady Scotland quit? Is it right to let pandas die out?

See thisislondon.co.uk/lite I APPROVE of designers, such as Canadian knitwear king Mark Fast, trying to make their clothes inclu- sive but it is one thing to have larger models and quite another to put the effort into making sure they look good. His larger London Fashion Week models were svelte size 12s but Fasts dresses did absolutely nothing for them. Clearly, these designs can only be worn success- fully by the slimmest of women. Isabel, Surrey SIZES 12 and 14 are normal. Plus size is over size 20. Thirty years ago size 14 was the ideal figure. Size 10 was undesir- ably scrawny and size eight was a childs size. I fear for the weedy, matchstick-thin girls I see teetering down the street. Cam, Essex THE fact we have had just three plus size models at London Fashion Week illustrates how incredibly inaccessible couture clothing is to the masses. You would have to have incredibly long limbs and a towering stature to pull off this look. Jc, London FASHION is about change so its about time we broke away from the image of sticks striding the catwalk and replaced it with models of all sorts of sizes and colour. Victoria, London DESIGNERS and stylists use rail- thin models because they look good. Its not some giant con- spiracy! Plus size models do not have the coat hanger effect that designers, buyers and editors need to get a real sense of the dress. Em, Camden Town IM not too fussed about the clothes but these bigger models figures remind me of Venus de Milo. Which of todays models will be regarded as beauti- f u l 5 0 0 years from now? Jay, SE1 GREAT news but give it a few months and even these plus size models will be super-skinny. Remember Sophie Dahl! Pippa, Balham Textpoll Q: Will Liberal Democrats ever gain power?
