Your Letters

14:40 UK time, Wednesday, 23 May 2012

Reading about China's decision to limit public toilets to two flies, I remembered seeing one of these modern public conveniences in Chalon-sur-Saone in France. The legend said, in French, that you had to leave within 15 minutes as the whole toilet would then be "hosed down". Which is fine, except that the English translation said 20 minutes.

I'm torn between a gag about "Button or Zip?" and some clever question about how they would get them to queue up. Any advice? (What's that - do neither? OK, I give up!)

From the BBC news front page this morning, this headline: "Chronic pain under-treated - NICE." I don't think that's very nice at all! I'll get my aspirin.
Paul Morris, Cheriton Fitzpaine, Devon

Many congratulations to the players who have qualified for the GB Olympic Table Tennis squad. Their home towns of Middlesborough, Milton Keynes, Chesterfield, Chertsey, Leamington Spa and China/Northern Ireland left me wondering if we haven't perhaps redrawn national boundaries a little in order to maximise medals? While we're at it, we couldn't get Jamaica into Wales could we?
Richard Martin, Doncaster, UK/China

Phil (Tuesday's letters) - how very considerate of you. I presume to avoid overly disturbing Monitorites, you signed off very quietly.
Shiz, Cheshire, UK
