Pop / FLEADH Finsbury Park, London

The post of Lunatic Genius brings with it many duties - snubbing national anthems, desecrating pictures of religious leaders. So no wonder Sinead O'Connor's appearance at the Fleadh on Saturday evening was so rare; she must have her Filofax packed with stunts to make Salman Rushdie look like Nanette Newman.

Stanley Spencer's The Resurrection, Cookham has been given a face- lift and a whole new lease of life by a school on the Isle of Dogs

When in 1923 Stanley Spencer painted his famous work The Resurrection, Cookham, he can little have suspected that it would one day be used to educate East End teenagers. Spencer presents a surreal view of his local parish church, in which the dead, wrapped in winding sheets, rise uncorrupted from the grave to greet the living on the pleasant summer's afternoon of the day of resurrection.

LETTERS:Trains and tubes in the Docklands

From Mr Steven Norris, MP Sir: Your article "Crucial links hold key to the future" ( 25 January) is not correct to say that "the opening of the Jubilee Line Extension will put the Docklands Light Railway at risk". As you say elsewhere in the article, "without the prospect of a tube line, the DLR would just not have been able to cope with the increased numbers of [Docklands] office workers". In fact, the DLR and the JLE will fit well together, as two distinct public transport schemes. The main Docklands development to be served by the JLE is of course the Canary Wharf development. Canary Wharf will, however, be the only JLE station on the Isle of Dogs, where there are several DLR stations providing more direct access to other office developments. For Isle of Dogs developments other than Canary Wharf, the JLE will complement the DLR by acting as a feeder for it.

Crucial links hold key to the future : DOCKLANDS A SPECIAL REPORT

The history of the redevelopment of Docklands has been dominated by the issue of transport. At first much of the Docklands area, particularly Canary Wharf, was completely inaccessible. There was the odd bus, a semi-defunct railway line and a lot o f roads which were all right in themselves for local use, but which quickly became hopelessly jammed at the access points to the rest of east London at peak hours.

Cleaning up the `neighbourhoods' : LETTERS

From Mr Stephen Shaw Sir: John Torode ("Bad neighbours in Bow", 12 December) might have a less rosy view of Liberal Democrat Tower Hamlets had he lived here. As a journalist, he should have looked harder for the reasons that a 1990 Liberal majority of 30:20 was turned into a 1994 Labour majority of 43:7.
