"Whole Body Imaging (WMI)" - would you trust security to someone whose spelling is so bad?
Liz, Belfast

cameron_5jan_getty.jpgIs David Cameron releasing his greatest hits album (re photo, right)?
Dylan, Reading, UK

Are mobility scooters becoming a road menace? Yep. Saw an old bloke clip a pedestrian the other day. Must have been doing 15-20 mph on a crowded pavement.

£1 at 6/5 *wins* £1.20. Your stake is returned so that £2.20 is what you take back from the bookie. But if you hadn't bet in the first place, you'd still have £1.
Tall Tone, Snowless Essex
Monitor note: While on the subject, apologies for the technical gremlins which plagued this and other offerings.

The picture of the Queen in Wills defends the Queen shows her with flowers in her left hand. OK. Not unusual for Her Majesty. But there are two bananas in her right hand. Why? Healthy mid-morning snack?
Adam, London
Monitor note: To make banana cake? Those look awfully ripe.

Michael Hall, Croydon, UK

Am I the only one who would cite the absence of a Starbucks as a positive?
Sue, London

Johan van Slooten, Urk, The Netherlands

Alan (Monday letters), the collective term for bankers is "wunch". That should help.
Adrian Fowell, Douglas, Isle of Man
