      Sorry but you have to agree that Nick has far the most about him unlike, all those insincere other contestants on the programme. He was the best contestant and deserved to win just through his cunning ability to show the others up as gullible and stupid. All those people that are branding him the most evil man ever to live should try and puts things into context that all he did was write some names on paper. The fuss everyone makes about it is frankly ridiculous, I can not see how this man is meant to be so evil, when everything he did was so funny. It is a shame he didn't stay on longer at the house the results would have sent channel 4's viewing figures even higher than they were. Lets hope Nick stays around to show more people how pathetic they are.

      Would you not agree with me when I say that George Orwell is probably the best author ever to put pen to paper (excluding Shakespeare). Not just the better known works of 1984 and Animal farm, but even te lesser known works of Burmese Days, and A Clergymans Daughter, prove to be both stunnning insights into the human soul, and also pwerful novels. Burmese Days is a stunning cry for recognition of the cause for abolition of colonialism, and both a touching story of hope and despair. Animal Farm shows the tradgedy and waste of the Russian Revolution and also at a lower level is a beautiful childrens story

      What is the saying? lies, more lies, and statistics, when will people learn that girls are NOT as bright as boys at A level or any other educational standard. It is only the fact that boys cannot be bothered to work that leaves them trailing. If they were given some incentive to put in some effort then you would find that boys 100% of the time would outclass girls. Maybe then these lies that the government tell us are just made so that girls can feel more confident about themselves as they are naturally shy and retiring. Maybe it is time to put a stop to education for girls so that the governments resources are no longer wasted.

        Would everyone not agree that the main principle behind the creation of Monopoly is to train children at a young age to become greedy Capitalists. Surely this is the wrong thing to teach to young children as it encourages them to exploit their neighbour to the point of bankruptcy and the inevitable exit from the game. Shouldn't we be teaching them the principles of equality and Communism, so instead of purely playing for gain they would be playing for the right to create the most state owned property. Would you not agree that this indoctrination at an early age is going to result in the eventual downfall of politics as everyone will be right wing conservatives. Ban this game now.

        Please leave this new talent of the music industry alone, can no one see that Daphne and Celeste are the freshest new sound to come out of America since the Beach Boys? Stunning Lyrics such as ohh stick you your mama too, are possibly the most touching that I have come across since Eric Claptons Let it Grow. Their debut album'We didn't say that' is a masterpiece of musical engineering on a par with Fleetwood Mac's Rumours album. Is it not time we acknowledged this force in the music industry and gave Daphne and Celeste the praise they deserve.

          Would Mr Blair not agree that these university fees that he now insists on charging have meant that there are many cases of elitism becoming more and more prevalent in our universities. This is most likely derived from the fear that once a university loan is taken (because the student can't afford fees), you will not be able to pay it back. This may be especially true for poorer studnts, meaning they may not be able to progress to university because of the cost incurred. This may mean then that we have a poorer educated youth leaving Britain even further behind on a world economic scale. Why not stop these ridiculous fees and make the shortfall up from the excessive taxes charged on petrol and tobacco?

            Why is it all these people are suddenly jumping on the bandwagon over this issue of petrol prices in the UK. Admittedly they are far higher than any of those our European neighbours, but please surely it is our responsibility after starting wars with Middle Eastern nations to share the huge price increases that are bound to follow. Also would you not prefer to have high petrol prices and a stanle currency or low petrol prices and the tax burden elsewhere, as essentially you will be paying the same whatever. What about the enviroment, something people have been moaning about for years apparently because of the high use of cars, and petrol, won't these taxes mean that the enviroment is better protected as people are better deterred from using a car.

              Having been a fan of the Villans for a good many years I was delighted this season that we seem to be proggressing nicely with the cup run(s). Naturally I assumed that we would continue this trend by buying some players for the forthcoming season who would be up to the task of competing with the top teams further this season. I was however greatly dissapointed to hear about our interest in such nobodys as Jordi Cruff, and the somewhat ageing David Ginola. How is it with the frankly extortionate ticket prices that Mr Ellis now insists on charging us to see what is in essence second rate football, that we cannot afford to go to the top end of the transfer market. Does Mr Ellis not realise that by buying these second rate players we are creating the atmosphere of a second rate club, and so average attendances are bound to plummet, meaning Mr Ellis is in essence losing money.

              Is it not a waste of money now that England have failed in our bid to host the 2006 world cup, to spend so much money on a stadium that will probably be used at the most 15 times a year to host domestic competitions. What is wrong with a cheaper option of upgrading the existing Wembley stadium to satisfy the needs of the domestic game. In doing this we would both be saving the time and money of building a new stadium, which will probably go out of date in 20 years time anyway. Also though we would be able to put this money into development and funding for youth schemes in England so that once again we can at least attempt to compete at a national level.

              Slovenias effort in the latest european tournament I thought was highly comendable and they deserve more praise for their achievments. The attacking guile they showed in their game with Yugoslavia showed the world what performers they may well turn out to be. Zahovic's attacking prowess is probably, for me one of the highlights of the tournament.Possibly in the coming world and european tournaments I imagine that we will see a new footballing power coming to light. Despite this though the team itself went home too early for me with little but praise to show for their efforts.

              How can clubs from the higher echelons of domestic football get away with charging extortionate amounts of money for watching their football when lower league sides are struggling to keep in the black? Last season I visited Aston Villa 3 times, each costing in the region of £30 per game, which in most cases were the most appaling displays of football I have ever seen. On the other side of the coin I also visted Bristol City where for £5 I was able to see virtually the same standard of football for a sixth of the price. Also at Bristol City a trip to wembley to see the Autowindscreens Final cost the same amount as a trip up to Villa Park. Are these ridiculous ticket prices the result of the huge influx of foreign players demanding huge wages (which fortunately have not filtered down to the lower leagues yet). Or is it greed on the part of over Zealous chairmen detering the run of the mill football fan from seeing live football. When are they going to learn to stop?

              How is it nowadays that these so called universities are allowed to take in the worst type of A level graduate student who have achieved in essence very little from their A level studies, and yet allow them to embark on a 3 year degree course. After these supposed courses the students are allowed to come out with a first which, although impressing many employers is in fact worthless when compared with a 2:1 degree from a more highly rated university. Surely we should end this travesty and allow these universities to be shown up for the fraud that they reallly are.
