All my parcels are delivered by Santa anyway... JG, CM15 BoSS has cut his goatee into handlebar moustache and looks like dodgy porn star. Risk sack and tell him or keep quiet? Concerned, Brixton GAZ (Txts, Tues): so your flatmate dries socks on the hob? My friend regularly cooked clothes in a stove pot. Jeans, undies... Ryan, Kensington GAZ: yes its weird, even more than my friend who microwaves her wet clothes. Radiator anyone? Drybones, London GAZ: I use my microwave to dry my boxers. Not weird at all. Lay, E16 CABBIe who purposely drove through puddle and drenched me on Chancery Lane in downpour... ever heard of karma? Sammy B, Hove So BT Tower revolving restaurant is reopening.

Brandon, W6 eLLIoT (Txts, Tues): if you hold button as train stops then doors will open immediately circuit is energised... so whos the plonker now?!

Walkies, London Should banks be bailedoutagain? I love the name Kai Wayne, it sounds so American. Coleen and Wayne Rooney, pictured carrying their newborn son, have given their first child an exotic- sounding name. And good luck for the future to all of them! Nina, New Cross I thought Coleen would choose something traditional, which is more to my taste, but I like the ring of Kai. Lauren, London Its not my cup of tea, but at the end of the day he is not my son. I am sure the name holds some special meaning for Coleen and Wayne, and that they will make great parents.

See thisislondon.co.uk/lite W HERE will it end? Another 39bn of taxpayers money -- or rather, cash bor- rowed in our names on the global markets -- is used by Chancellor Alistair Darling to bail out the Royal Bank of Scotland and Lloyds. We must take it on faith that this is to avert disaster. But in all likelihood we have now mortgaged the prosperity of our children in order to undo the handiwork of greedy bankers. Graham, London THIS time we should let the banks go under or allow another organisation to get them out of trouble. We, the taxpay- ers, are being taken for mugs, and it is time for it to stop before the country is made bankrupt. Peter F, Edgware ITS unbelievable that the Governments going to force taxpayers who cant afford to buy a house to bail out the banks. Fred, London WE mAy moan about what is hap- pening in the banking industry because of the financial crisis, bu t wh at choice doe s the Government have? If we do not step in to save these banks from collapse, thousands of jobs will no doubt be at risk. Olivia Robinson, Hendon o n T H E positive side, t h e m o r e money we put in, the more say we should have as share- holders. Lets show these banks whos boss. Its time for responsible lending and the end of big bonuses and gold-plated pensions. Max, London To ASk us to support banks who have returned nothing to their customers in the last 10 years of boom is little short of idiocy. LS, Plaistow LET the banks go. Well start all over again. only bank- ers think t h e y a r e better busi- nessmen than the rest. James, Redbridge WHo will bail out the Uk when all the money is gone and the ImF wont lend any more? Everyone is protected except the taxpayer. TA, Oval Textpoll Q: Will reforms stop MPs abusing expenses? OurlastresultShould there be a Lisbon Treaty referendum?
