My friends and I now have a new place to hang out for a coffee in central London. M Kaur, London I ThInk all coffee shops can learn from this new- look branch. The contemporary style will appeal to City high- fliers while the eclectic furniture will bring in arty types from around the area. Sadie, Northolt I prefer to buy coffee at independent shops and stop all the big chains driving them out of business.

I thought wed settled this debate decades ago. Tory MP Sir Nicholas Winterton is said to have patted Labour MP Natascha Engel on the bottom in the Commons Tea Room queue, and later appeared to excuse such behaviour. Id say he should be grate- ful not to have got a sound slap for his Benny Hill-style behaviour. Rachel, London HE IS old enough to know better at 71. Yes, its a relatively minor incident, but still its deeply stupid behaviour and quite inexcusable. Richard, London EQUALITY in the workplace includes freedom from inappropriate advances on the part of uncontrollable colleagues. Eileeen ODonnell, Homerton IT IS archaic to pat a woman colleagues bottom. Any man who does so in the workplace needs to sign up for some wake up to reality classes. Ben Waters, Northfields PEoPLE are so uptight and crazy about political correctness that some- one simply giving them a p l ay f u l pat on the bottom gets them upset. A woman should instead be happy that someone thinks her bottom is worth patting. It should be taken only as a genuine compliment. Adam, Wimbledon WHEN I was young, I patted women on the bottom and they smiled back demurely. But that was a long time ago in a very dif- ferent era. If you did the same nowadays you would surely risk being arrested. Frederick, London ANY man who truly believes that it is okay to pat a womans bottom doesnt deserve to work with them. These overgrown schoolboys need to grow up properly before being allowed into the company of adult, professional women. Bethany Sissons, Clapham Textpoll Q: Doyoufeelsorryfor womenMPs?
