Is this being reported in the UK?
Chinese sources are reporting that hes been assassinated
I know they need to say "We're investigating" and "The public shouldn't intervene", but surely that's just for the news article and they'll not actually give a **** that this wee scrote got launched out at Linlithgow?
The girl from the taxpayers alliance really should have known her figures there. Alan Duncan shot her down very easily.
At least 73 killed and a thousand injured at a match between Masry and al-Ahly in Port Said. Was al-Ahly the club Benji was signing for at one point ?
Thought I'd post this because I can't imagine many people will know about it.
If you earn less than £22k a year you can get a £500 grant to study part-time, I've not applied for it so I'm not that sure of the details.
I can't actually believe this is for real. A train driver called in sick for work and it was found that he was actually in Germany to watch a Rangers game. As a result, he was demoted. The unions now want to ballot drivers on strike action to...
£12bn could be the final cost to the tax payer for London's facelift. Will Scotland see any benefit from the Olympics?
I think he deserved to get his knighthood taken away. That said, is he the only one to be punished? Seems to me that they can't stop with him, or we'll start feeling sorry for the cynical barsteward.
Another thing, it seems that banks are like sportsmen - British when they are winning and...
This one is a bit of fun for the Hibernian/SNP minded gentlemen among us. I won't vote because as someone opposed to independence that would unfairly skew the poll.
And for allmodcons, ancienthibby, Hainan Hibs etc I'm happy to acknowledge up front that its a poll that cannot be fairly used in...
A wee gem from a jambo unionist, lord pishstain of ****fuddery-
Lord George Foulkes : “The SNP are on a very dangerous tack. What they are doing is trying to build up a situation in Scotland where the services are manifestly better than south of the border in a number of areas.”
What's your view on PM Cameron's decision today to try and set the terms on the forthcoming Referendum on Scotland's constitutional future??
WTF are they and how come I have 50,000 of them?
Anyone else had a look at this?
That cyclist is a tit.
Not great, but I did find it somewhat ironic when a Taliban spokesman accused them of a 'wild act'.
So, indiscriminant bombings, beheading's and brutal repression of women are not at all wild........
Not much of a relaunch today. He was late, he had a bizarre choice of entrance music and by all accounts his speech was not particularly stirring. In fact, Guardian puts it as the 20 year old lad who was on before him was more uplifting and coherent.
I feel for the guy because I think he's so...
I have a friend who is currently in the hospital with a rare arthritic condition called Still's disease. This has just been diagnosed this week after being "i'll" (for want of a better term) for over a year. Hospitalised over Christmas as was unable to walk.
Now , this person normally works part...
That's always baffled me.
Now THAT is how to stage a protest, gawn yersel Nigeria! This reaffirms my idea that we're too soft in this country.
Phoar!!! Now there's a woman. Worth putting on stacks of weight to have her shout at me.
Anyone staying up late tonight to catch Gervais give it to the celebs this year hope he gives it to them worse than last year was superb :greengrin
"White people love playing 'divide and rule'. We should not play their game"
She has previous for this sort of stuff. Racist?
What reaction would a white politician get if they tweeted the same thing but with 'black' substituting 'white'?
Only about a week before the value of the shares plummets he sells up.....dodgy?
The UK national debt is currently USD 1,654,000,000,000.
Scotland's share of this would be approx USD 165,400,000,000.
Something to think about.
Kelvin McKenzie and Nicola Sturgeon on tonight.
Anyone not voting yes in the referendum will be changing their tune after listening to McKenzie.
They're throwing the union away:greengrin
The FT (the best newspaper in the world IMHO) is doing a series on the crisis in capitalism.
This will be a good one to follow to both understand the issues and engage in the debate.
Banner article can be found here, with comments:
Capitalism in crisis: The code that forms a bar to harmony
A 7.3 earthquake has struck just off the coast of Indonesia and a tsunami alert has been sounded.
A lot smaller than the 9.3 magnitude which struck on boxing day in 2004, but nonetheless, this one has the potential to cause some serious damage on a somewhat local scale.
Hopefully most of the...

Just read about this on Yahoo News. This is a photo from an Ad by Le Redoute. The Ad is for kids beachwear.
Straightforward enough - what are your views?
As a teacher, I should declare a vested interest here. Much of the media manipulation by Maude, Cameron and chums frankly drives me to distraction. When Cameron said today that workers should take their kids to work, I laughed so hard I nearly drove...
Gary Dobson and David Norris found guilty of the murder of Stephen Lawrence.
News of a rather horrific attack yesterday as a guy was set about with a 8 ton road roller; ambulance crew hindered according to Radio Forth!!!!
Just being nosey but can any of our East Lothian correspondents provide any details?
… and if your not there its your turn to buy next week! :greengrin
Has died. Apparently of a heart attack.
Despite the fact that it is still unclear as to whether or not Milly Dowler’s voicemails were automatically deleted, the most disgusting elements of our press have emerged from the shadows by trying to discredit the story.
The repellent Kelvin McKenzie was on Sky News’ Press Preview last night,...
Christopher Hitchens died today of oesophegal cancer.
Regardless of your views on religion or Iraq, I think there can be little doubt that he was an outstanding orator. Personally, I agreed pretty much wholeheartedly with his views on religion, much less so with his views on the war in Iraq....
Anyone see this docked at ocean terminal? Looks fantastic, bet it cost a few quid. Anyone know who owns it?
How did they manage all those years in Ulster, just using rubber bullets. This is the thin end of the wedge, it'll be armed police guarding strikers next. We're all in this together.
