The ‘News’ asks you what you think of the day’s issues.
Interview by Helen Brooks
MARCEL MOOFOLK, MANAGER, EAST DULWICH
What's your favourite place in Southwark?
Southbank is really beautiful. Now that they've invested lots of money in it, it looks lovely.
What's the best thing about living in Southwark?
I think you have everything here - you can get whatever you want and there's no need to travel.
Is a size sixteen really too big?
Not really - it's the national average isn't it? Twelve, fourteen, sixteen, I think it's all pretty similar. It depends on people's height most of all.
Should drug addicts be given free doses to prevent them committing crimes?
I think so - I think we should help them as much as we can. At least by giving them the drugs they won't steal to try to get more. It's only human to try to help out someone else.
Would you pose naked for charity?
Never for anybody - it's my culture. I wouldn't do it. If you are a charitable person in your heart then you can find other ways to do it - nobody should go without. Should Santa Claus have to wear a seatbelt on his sleigh to set a good example? I doubt it - it's not like he's driving a car and you should let children keep hold of the magic. Educating them about car safety at school is more important.
Do you want Jose Mourinho to be the next England manager?
I think the question is not who should be the next manager - although Mourinho would probably do a good job - but who should be the new players. At the moment they are paid too much and they don't have enough passion for the game. They're the problem not the manager.
Officials in Ukraine have just recaptured a crocodile from a travelling circus. Is it right to have such animals in the show?
I don't think so - animals should stay in the wild where they belong. They have their own rights and they'll end up extinct that way.
How far would you go to get your kids into a good school?
A school is a school - it's education which is the most important thing you can give a child. I would go as far as I was able - you've got to do your best for them.
