Lettris is a curious tetris-clone game where all the bricks have the same square shape but different content. Each square carries a letter. To make squares disappear and save space for other squares you have to assemble English words (left, right, up, down) from the falling squares.
Boggle gives you 3 minutes to find as many words (3 letters or more) as you can in a grid of 16 letters. You can also try the grid of 16 letters. Letters must be adjacent and longer words score better. See if you can get into the grid Hall of Fame !

The London Assembly is an elected body, part of the Greater London Authority, that scrutinises the activities of the Mayor of London and has the power, with a two-thirds majority, to amend the mayor's annual budget and to reject the Mayor's draft statutory strategies. The assembly was established in 2000 and is headquartered at City Hall on the south bank of the River Thames, close to Tower Bridge. The assembly is also able to investigate other issues of importance to Londoners (transport, environmental matters, etc.), publish its findings and recommendations, and make proposals to the mayor.
London Elects is the body that coordinates pan-London elections under the guidance of the London returning officer. It has two functions; one to liaise with the London boroughs and oversee the election of London Mayor, London Assembly and European elections, and secondly to communicate the elections, the process and the results to the public. It was founded in 2003.
The Assembly comprises 25 members elected using the Additional Member System of proportional representation. Elections take place every four years - at the same time as for the Mayor. There are 14 constituencies each electing one member, with a further 11 members elected from a party list to make the total members from each party proportional to the votes cast for that party across the whole of London using modified D'Hondt. Parties must win at least 5% of the party list vote in order to win any seats. Members of the Assembly have the postnomial title 'AM'. The annual salary for a London Assembly member is approximately £54,000. The current chair of the London Assembly is Jennette Arnold. The Deputy Chair of the London Assembly is Darren Johnson.
Since its creation in 2000, nine Assembly members have subsequently been elected to the House of Commons: David Lammy, Meg Hillier and Diana Johnson for Labour; Andrew Pelling, Bob Neill, Angie Bray, Bob Blackman and Eric Ollerenshaw for the Conservatives; and Lynne Featherstone for the Liberal Democrats. In addition, Val Shawcross, Assembly Member for Lambeth and Southwark was selected, but unsuccessful, as the Labour parliamentary candidate for the constituency of Bermondsey and Old Southwark. Andrew Dismore and Richard Tracey are both former MPs who were later elected to the Assembly.
