In a country which is one of the richest on this planet and has people resorting to not feeding themselves to feed...
How, the **** in the year 2011 can this happen?
Surely this could have been anticipated and stopped.
Its a sad day when a junkies death is bigger news in this country than thousands starving to death, yet not at all surprising!
This has probably been mentioned before but I thought I'd mention it as I just used it for the first time.
I had to phone e2save about my mobile phone order at 10p per minute plus my network(Virgin) charge of 11p per minute.

No confirmation, as yet, of the cause of the explosion, however early signs suggest that a bomb is the most likely cause.

Perhaps someone can answer a question for me.
I have noticed on 'Two and a Half Men' - among other programmes - that characters will from time to time describe something someone has said or done as 'gay'. How does this work? It sounds politically incorrect but given that it appears within US...
The Greeks are out on the streets in their thousands, ahead of the vote for austerity cuts. The police are firing round after round of stun grenades and tear gas, heavy scenes. Even if the vote goes through, will the government be able to implement the austerity package ?

The outrage towards those has who have dared to somehow "explain" Craig Thomsons behaviour has prompted me to post this. The vitriol and abuse has been bang out of order in my opinion, especially that directed towards McIntosh.

On the one hand I find it fascinating to see the deployment in Afghanistan "from the inside"; on the other, I'm shocked at the apparently mindless way these guys are being used. I have no military training whatsoever but, really, is there no alternative to...
