    with comma or without comma?

    Dear all,

    In the sentences below, do you think it's okay to put commas?

    1. Bonds is, and always will be my hero.
    2. I love London, and always will do.

    OP

    Thank you!

    I think you missed a word on the first one.

    Bonds is, and always will be, my hero.
    I love London and [I] always will.

    Dear all,

    emsr2d2, thanks for your reply.

    2. I love london, and always will do.

    Is "do" unnecessary?

    In my opinion, "do" is unnecessary. Personally, I wouldn't use the comma either as per my suggestion: I love London and [I] always will. The second "I" is optional.
