"Andrew Neil absolutely brilliant. Wouldn't we all like have the same opportunity to confront one of the sanctamonious hypocites who inhabit the political class such as Diane Abbot. the sanctamonious hypocites who inhabit the political class such as Diane Abbot. We really nead more of this no holds barred from our media representitives, too many duck these kind of questions afraid that interviewee's will refuse to participate in future program's. Ms Abott is everything people dispise in professional politicians,arrogant and obviously stupid, with a big chip,to go with previous comments. big chip,to go with previous comments.

Great World Cup comment from an American !

Extracted from online Times article by Boris Johnson,  Mayor of London.
newyorka Yesterday 04:47 PM That was just painful to watch. Now i can say with pride that the U.S national soccer team played far better in this world cup than the English did.I'm sure you'll agree,just check out the quality of our goals and overall the quality of out game.We don't even take soccer that seriously yet we have a far superior team compared to a nation obsessed with it. Simply put:Stick to cricket,you guys suck at soccer.

Sums up BP - dysfunctional

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ynews/20100618/bs_ynews/ynews_bs2709;_ylt=AmR14EXWA5bvVQ7ikO0SW0gEq594;_ylu=X3oDMTE5azM1ZjdwBHBvcwM2BHNlYwN5bl9jb2x1bW5pc3RfcgRzbGsDYnAzOXNoYXl3YXJk

For a major international company to have two total PR twats,  a CEO and a Chairman 'managing', is a pretty hard act to follow.  Also, it makes one wonder how many other idiots they have in management given their overruling  of technical sub contractors' warnings on the oil spill rig !!!

Good !!!

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ynews/20100618/ts_ynews/ynews_ts2702

Pity it took so long to get rid of this scum.  Think of the two victims shot by him and their relatives.  America should stop the endless appeal processes that just make lawyers money.

Criminal negligence ?

Regulate English ?

http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/news/uk/education/article7145147.ece

I like my language UK English but,  apart from the proper school teaching of grammar (which if bad is down to poor teaching and disinterested parents) with the availability of information for purists, to regulate it will interfere with the whole evolution of this World language.  All the nuances,  differences and spellings in use around the World, such as in examples of American and Australian English, surely ADD to evolution.  We don't want a 'dead' language !

Stephen Fry is right to criticise any regulation. Proper English and grammar needs to be taught at school, those who stick with it are not to be criticised any more than those who evolve new colourful and slang English to add to our wonderful language.

Stop the language luddites !

Get a good English Dictionary (Oxford for example) and decide yourself. How about this one, 'E&OE'. Look it up !
