Re: The Prime Minister being interviewed by police investigating allegations of cash for honours. Mr Blair was "not accompanied by a lawyer", so go the reports. Mr Blair IS a lawyer.
Hugh, re: What happened to bird flu? (Wednesday’s letters) it's not the first time is it; remember Sars?
Jenny Em, Aberdeen
Hugh, I'm not a doctor, but I can officially reveal that bird flu has this year been overtaken by an ailment 10 times worse: Man Flu. Seriously.

I read your article on Victorian values with interest. It reminded me of another article that I recently read which reported the findings of a study of prison records. They showed that somebody was sent to prison because they had taken a day off work due to illness.

In the teen slang test I got two out of 10, and I'm only 18. Am I officially no longer a teenager?
Mark Perryman, Maidstone, Kent
Eight out of 10 on the teen slang midweek quiz? I'm cool, I'm hip, I'm down with my homies. Big up myself! Laters innit.

It’s just not kind to put up the midweek quiz on Thursday lunchtime. Surely this is the "nearly end of the week, not long to go now" quiz?
I almost choked on my lunch when I read the name of the doctor in charge of the HIV dept in the World Heath Organisation - who was explaining the data behind circumcision reducing the risk of contracting HIV.

During Strictly Come Dancing on Saturday, Brucie unbuttoned his jacket and gave us a bit of hip-swivel action. My two-year-old took one look and said: "Dirty." Surely there must be a flexicon entry for such appropriate pronouncements from the mouths of babes?
Re: the article "Wide awake having brain surgery". It says that there is no discomfort for the patient as there aren't any pain receptors inside the head. And that during the operation, the surgeon continually checks that the parts they were cutting out are not needed by asking the patient what he feels. Not a lot, I would suggest.
My theory is that the journalists at the Daily Express like Sunday nights out on the lash, but have trouble preparing enough copy for Monday's paper. This is where Princess Di comes in. They've had so much practice that they can knock up a conspiracy theory about a white Fiat and a little green man at the rate of 1000 words an hour, which frees up Sunday evening nicely. This has been verified by 18 independent witnesses, but the authorities unaccountably refused to take their statement. Cover-up.
