  1. Tide turning against the US National Rifles Association

    Good to see that pressure is building up against the NRA. It's good to see some companies starting to take a stance against this organisation. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-43268446 When I hear anything from the NRA, I'm lost for words. How gullible are the American public to...

  2. (NHC) Suspected Murder of Russians

    Boris Johnson has announced that if Russian State intervention in the suspected attack on the two Russians is established, England’s representation in the World Cup will be in doubt. “Mr Johnson said that if it emerged Russia was linked to the incident in Salisbury "it would be very difficult to...

  3. Ant McPartlin done for drink driving

    Ant (from Ant & Dec) has been done for drink driving and their Saturday night takeaway show has been cancelled. Been amazed by some peoples reaction on twitter, giving it "aww he's got mental health issues, he's struggling with a drink problem etc etc". IMO he deserves no sympathy for getting...

  5. The future of the Labour Party

    I decided not to post this in the Leadership thread as that contest is all but over. Corbyn will be declared winner by a huge margin. So what does the future hold for Labour? What with the exposure of Momentum promised by Channel 4 Dispatches already to be viewed tomorrow night, Panorama will...
