Lucie Jones, pictured, is gorgeous and has a great future ahead of her, despite her premature exit from The X Factor. she should now be a great success. L Sidley, London she looks amazing in the pictures from stockport, where crowds gathered to see her switch on the christmas lights. You cant look at the love and acclaim and say she doesnt have the X Factor! J Beard, London Who remembers X Factor rejects? Time to go back to pulling pints in Wales. Ana, Shoreditch Lucie will go further than Jedward. unlike the X Factor judges, the public can spot talent. Casey, London hurray! ashes cricket is coming back to terrestrial tv. now more youngsters will get the chance to watch, so hopefully we can have a new generation of Freddie Flintoffs. J Beard, Hornsey sarah Brown is a great- looking woman. I dont know how Gordon Brown pulled it off. at the very least theres one success he can claim in the past 12 years. Joti, London Its absurd that police officers need a 93-page book saying how to ride a bike. But some of the cyclists I see wobbling over westminster Bridge every day could do with a few lessons. A Bryan, London And Another Thing... Thank you for all your texts and letters to the Lite Could Lucie Jones still be a star? Getitoff your txtYour mobile moans S OMETIMES I wonder if these politicians havent gone abso- lutely bonkers. Home Secretary Alan Johnson believes its okay for MoD civil servants to get bonuses because they do difficult and sometimes dangerous jobs. Our Armed Forces encounter danger every day -- as sadly proven by hundreds of deaths in Afghanistan -- yet where is their bonus? This disparity insults our heroes. Fredi, Golders Green WHy do MoD bureaucrats get bonuses for simply doing their jobs? Who decided their salaries and index-linked, copper- bottomed, taxpayer-funded pensions arent enough? I really think we should be told. Of course, if they feel they need more reward, they could always chance their arm in the private sector. Louis GS, London SOlDIErS have to wait years for meagre compensation payouts, while civil serv- ants behind their desks in Whitehall get thousands in bonuses. last year the average bonus for the senior civil serv- ants was about 8,000 -- almost half an average soldiers entire annual salary. J Ahir, Holborn HOW can ministers say their priority is the welfare of troops when civil servants are rewarded with cash, yet there is a continual failure to provide the necessary equipment to soldiers? Our under- equipped troops are being killed and maimed unnecessarily. There should be no rewards for failure. Matt, London NOT every civil servant receives the same bonus, so those that have must have done something to deserve it. They often have to ven- ture into the field and work up to 17 or 18 hours a day. I couldnt do that and I dont resent those that can getting some remuneration. Will, NW6 IM SurE the civil servants could have said, No thanks. I think the money could be better spent on equipment for troops. I bet no one has, though. PW, London THE vast majority of civil serv- ants work in london, which can be a very dangerous place. They could get run down by a cyclist jumping the lights or be trapped in a failed underground train. Who can doubt the merit of their bonus? James B, London OF grEATEr concern to me is the news the MoD employs one person for every two soldiers in the armed forces. you could cut 75 per cent and save billions, and from that money provide frontline troops with the right equipment. Stacey, Kilburn Textpoll Do cops really need a bike- riding manual? YES 61% NO 39% Reward the true heroes Loss: the mother of Private Richard Hunt, above, who was killed in Afghanistan, criticised the MoD bonus awards MESSAGEBOARD index.html2.html3.html4.html5.html6.html7.html8.html9.html10.html11.html12.html13.html14.html15.html16.html17.html18.html19.html20.html21.html22.html23.html24.html25.html26.html27.html28.html29.html30.html31.html32.html33.html34.html35.html36.html37.html38.html39.html40.html41.html42.html43.html44.html45.html46.html47.html48.html49.html50.html51.html52.html53.html54.html55.html56.html57.html58.html59.html60.html61.html62.html63.html
