^ both those were on FB days ago (yeah, that's my only source of news these days).

Of course the U2 give-away thing is a cynical move by Apple to get more people to sign-up to iTunes to get their bank details, this is directly related to Appal Pay which has the potential of netting Apple billions world-wide.

Oh, there's another fun one - Kanye makes an ass out himself.

Anyone else pays attention to Yahoo! News?

He has also said that he wants NATO membership, but doesn't want the UK's nuclear weapons on Scottish soil. I'm sorry, but the man is a tw*t.

If Scotland were to leave the UK, would England deport Tony Blair?


No we love him very much. When he dies he's going to be stuffed and mounted on a plinth in central Baghdad along with your former dear leader.
Apparently, Scotland is voting on a referendum to separate from the UK next week.  This CNN writer wrote an opinion piece that says that the US should petition to replace Scotland in the UK if Scotland does vote to leave the UK.  http://www.cnn.com/2014/09/12/opinion/wheeler-scotland-referendum/index.html?hpt=hp_c2

I think he's only God for a year and then obviously the title goes back to Phi Collins and he can bestow it on some other Prog Noble.

By the way is there a Prog or Music News thread as I wondered whether this belonged here before I posted?

While all the winners of the awards are undoubtedly deserved, the categories themselves look like a collection of "Quick, before they die" awards.

It appears that Putin doesn't really seem to give a damn about sanctions at all. He is ignoring UN and NATO. What is he trying to accomplish?


Could be he is a genuine megalomaniac,   no longer able to discern reality, and he only operates through the filter of his own perceived omnipotence.

The exact same thing could be said about the UN and NATO though Ermm

If you check in with independent media you'll find horror stories every week of US police killing people, kicking family pets to death, SWAT raiding innocent peoples homes, sending armed response units into orgnanic farmers markets, arresting Amish at gunpoint for selling unpasteurised milk at the roadside, threatening children selling lemonade for charity.

It goes on. It's often caught on film too, and no one really gives a f***ing sh*t. They will if it happened to them of course, but until then, it's all lies and conspiracy theories. Oh well.

Ultimately bored by endless ecstasy!

We have the South Yorks Police over here who are (or have been) famous for pretty much the same things.  (Give a man a uniform)

There does seem to be a slight lack of accountability - (observing from the outside to state the bleeding obvious)

So if a person (who for whatever reason doesn't have a bank account) is on his way to the post office to buy a money order to pay their rent, they are subject to what essentially amounts to legalized armed robbery. Nice. So much for due process of law, both substantive and procedural.
I can understand your anger at me, but what did the horse I rode in on ever do to you?
