Your Letters

Should young children be allowed in restaurants? NO - I was in a restaurant one evening (8pm) when a mother on a near by table changed her baby's nappy on the table. We then walked out only paying for the £30 bottle of wine we had ordered and taking it with us.

If you want a quiet meal then stay at home, or go somewhere you know is quiet. Why should people with kids be denied the occasional meal out just because somebody who doesn't like kids wants to go there too? It's your decision where to eat

I have been taking my son to restaurants since he was a tiny babe in arms. He has been taught how to behave. My standards are high. I don't like brattish behaviour either and will not tolerate it when we are out. At three and a half he is perfectly capable of using cutlery and behaving. You probably wouldn't notice us in a restaurant, or all the other children behaving well, just the one brat that doesn't.

Should young children be allowed in restaurants? Absolutely! Cooked properly, they're extremely tasty.
The Child Catcher of TW1, Twickenham

Re: Anniversary free-for-all. The Royal Mint have followed in the same vein. By the way, I'm sending this letter in commemoration (is this a word?) of the 112-year anniversary of Iceland's first Football Club - Knattspyrnufelag Reykjavikur. I'll get my wikicoat.
Marc, Oldham

"Rooney granted restraining order." Yup, we all fell for that one! Talk about not finding what we thought we'd find. Grudging congratulations to the headline writer.
John Whapshott, Westbury, England

So, according to this size really DOES matter!

Love the caption on the photograph in this article!

What is the prize for correctly naming all of the "slebs" alluded to in today's PM? (apart from the possibility of a free subscription to 'Hello' magazine). Permanent exclusion from MM's letters page? (I would like to add that I don't know all the answers - are there any monitorites who would like to enlighten us?)
Paul, Croydon

"Woman lies on bench with beer bottles next to it". Come on, Monitor, you know we won't let you get away with that.
David Dee, Matola Mozambique
