Disgrace! Fashion Guy, London HELEN wrote in yesterday about my feature in Single File on Tuesday and said she would like to date me next time. Give her my number please. Dan, SW9 SAW Michael Bolton in High Street Ken today. Looking gorgeous. Gave me such a lovely smile. Michael, if youre reading this, get in touch! Hilary, W8 ALLAN (Txts, Wed): I never said an amnesty for kidnappers was a good idea, I just asked a question. If it resulted in just one child returned then its worth it, if not what is lost? Gary (with no basement and nothing to hide), Essex HAPPILY married but wanted to tell a shy girl she looked fabulous. Do women want to hear it, no strings attached? Jack, SW15 HAS anyone else been put off watching MasterChef because of the most annoying narrator on the planet? I think she is unbearable and spoils the show. Daniela, SE26 SLEEPWALKEr (Txts, Wed): Ive put my dirty laundry in the rubbish bin by mistake before! Heather, Hertfordshire SLEEPWALKEr: try being so tired you put your phone log-in code into the coffee machine at work and get sparkling blackcurrant instead of espresso. Paul, SE18 LAUrA (Txts, Wed): I adore curvy size 16+ women. But my question is, are there any women out there who like a fuller-figured guy? Big Steve, Bromley LAUrA: Im here! Love curvy ladies! Paul, Swiss Cottage LAUrA: Im not sure which bit of London you live in but round here we like our women big! Skinny gals are for wimps!! remember that! Eslashj, E2 LAUrA: theres a great club night called Big Girls Paradise in London specifically for larger ladies and their admirers. Look it up on Google. Paz, Welling LAUrA: why do all big women seem surprised they cant get a bloke? Just accept that you have to lower your standards. Damien G, Dartford DOES anyone still avoid stepping on three drains? Just seen a woman almost knock someone over to avoid them. Pinx, Dagenham QUEENIE (Txts, Wed): love the time machine version of I shouldnt but so would. Id go for Ozzy Osbourne. Saw an early Black Sabbath poster. Hot! Alison, EC3 IM the Cannon Street announcer. Spartacus, W6 Is Boris right on C-charge? WHY should Keisha be pushed out simply because Amelle now wishes to be the focal and vocal member of the group? What is even more sad is the fact the group will continue under the Sugababes banner when no original member is in it! Sarah, London I THINK Jade, right, is absolutely stunning and fits right in to the band. Its great to have someone sexy and talented to keep it fresh. Will, NW10 WHY dont the original line up reform and go up against the group they made successful. It would be a laugh to have the old-style Sugababes versus the newbees. Goggs, London Sugababes are over for me. Ill be surprised if they last. You just cant treat fans like this. Lottie, Greenwich YESTErDAYS figures in your article 571 paedophiles escape with just a caution in a year are inaccurate. Its not true to say almost a third of paedophiles in London are getting away with only a police warning. These figures relate to child neglect, not sex offences. Child neglect cases are fully investigated but its not always in the best interests of a child for there to be a prosecution of the parent.

See thisislondon.co.uk/lite I TS important to remember that the original Western Extension Zone was backed by the whole capital in 2004, and that there were two consultations: a Transport for London one which was unclear, and one backed by a few Tory boroughs. There hasnt been a statutory consultation as required by law. Given that, Mayor Boris Johnsons decision to delay scrapping the WEZ for a year is welcome. Its a pragmatic move that will be good for cyclists, TfL finances, congestion relief and improved air quality, all of which Boris favours. Tom, London CAR use in London needs to be massively reduced if the city is ever going to be attractive to walk and cycle in. The congestion zone needs expanding, not reducing. However, electric cars and so-called green cars should not be exempt from charging as they are bought by the affluent, who can well afford to pay the congestion charge. Jon, London IM ALL for extending the zone even further, at the very least to include Camberwell, Vauxhall and the rest of Kennington. Those who live on the edge of t h e z o n e have to suf- f e r m o r e t r a f f ic a s drivers try to avoid the charge. Charles, Kennington THE C-charge U-turn proves its always been all about revenue and never about congestion/green issues, as is always claimed. Tony, Kensington I DONT own a car, or live in west London but I voted for Boris to see some honest politics. Keeping promises is the one thing I did expect. This is all very disappoint- ing. Sarah N, London SPLIT the main zone and the WEZ so drivers cant drive from one end of London to the other. If you live within the zone (and get a 90 per cent discount), its cheaper to drive than go by Tube. How can that make sense? A Ball, London Textpoll Q: Should more sanctions be put on Iran?
