Ed Balls has criticised the media coverage of Jon Venables' recall to prison. Are the media out of order or are they reflecting your thoughts and questions?

Mark Leech, editor of Converse, the national prisoners' newspaper, said newspapers should stop reporting it while Kelvin McKenzie, former editor of the Sun, suggests they probably won't.

Taxi drivers are getting customer service training so they know when to shut up so you can sit in silence while they get quietly lost. Kate Smurthwaite finds the whole experience of having to speak to cabbies tedious but Dave Pike is a cabbie who thinks it's insulting to tell cabbies how and when to talk to people.

Plus, build-up to the Oscars with Paul Adams talking fashion and Colin Paterson speaking to Ron Howard, Matt Damon, Jeff Bridges and a whole load more.
