Roz, Ealing IN moNDays lite, louisa from hackney called for the public to donate cash and food to help troops in afghanistan. We are extremely grateful to members of the public who support personnel on operations but, in order to avoid delays to personal mail and limit the risk of additional mail sorties, we are seeking to discourage sending welfare parcels. that way we can ensure personnel get their mail on time. I would urge anyone who wants to show support to donate to a recognised military charity.

See thisislondon.co.uk/lite S IMON COWELL promises to tell us the reason he voted for the dreadful John and Edward Grimes last weekend in the next X Factor show, but unless he says for the ratings I cant imagine why. It was a travesty of justice that Lucie Jones had to leave and Im going to find it increasingly hard to watch. The fans boycott looks tempting. Simon, London COWELL said he would vote for the best performance on the night but to protect his own interests he didnt. The public can play at Cowells game as well -- by not voting for any of his interests. He can only blame himself for leaving us all with such a sense of wrong. S Andrews, Berkshire TruE fans should refuse to vote for Cowell acts. When they make up the bottom two, well see how much he likes it. Maggie, London IT Was the public vote that put Lucie in bottom place, not simon Cowell. are we going to say it is a fix every time an unpopular act survives? If the people whove complained had voted for Lucie, perhaps shed still be there. Not rocket science, is it? E Sullivan, London X FaCTOr f a n s, g e t over your- selves! No doubt next saturday and sunday youll all be watching like sheep. William, London COME on folks, its good TV! Jedward are awful, but they are entertaining and I would love to see them get into the final three! Carl, London THE muppets here are people who waste time and money voting on The X Factor. Its all a set-up with Cowell orchestrat- i n g t h e media. David, London THE problem is the judges compete and that conspires against the contestants. If the format changes to the judges truly supporting all acts equally, maybe Ill watch again. But not until then. Andy, Buckinghamshire Textpoll Q: Is worst of the recession over?
