This year the first storm will be ‘male’ and named Ali, while the second storm will be ‘female’ and named Bronagh, following the alternating male/female pattern established by the US National Hurricane Center in the 1970’s.
And it's between Ross and Tristan?

Like- Ali's Tartan Army.

I'm waiting for Higgins, and hoping it isn't a simple tropical storm.

Vegetarian GCSE student 16, is disqualified for 'obscene racial comments' because she criticised halal meat in Religious Studies exam
https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/articl ... -exam.html
On the subject of halal butchers, the student had written, '...which I find absolutely disgusting.'
I see this issue has raised it's head again. Rewind a few years and the main argument the right were pushing against halal was on the grounds of cruelty to animals. Perhaps if she had qualified her statement with the words "as a vegetarian" she might not have found herself landed in hot water.

One of the commentators btl makes the point that exams are not social media, and the candidate should not be expressing personal feelings.
That said, she should have qualified her comment, but the assessor needs the thistle removed from their arse.

The result of our noble free press exercising responsible journalism:


A Libyan man arrested after the Manchester Arena terror attack is suing MailOnline's publisher for £230,000 for publishing his details.

Alaedeen Sicri, 26, was arrested in West Sussex and released without charge over the May 2017 bombing of an Ariana Grande concert which killed 22 people.

Despite police not identifying him, MailOnline revealed his name, image and other details.

Publisher Associated Newspapers Ltd (ANL) denies it acted unlawfully.

Mr Sicri is seeking damages at the High Court in London over alleged misuse of private information.

At a hearing on Monday, Mr Sicri's barrister, Hugh Tomlinson said his client suffered "extreme and severe distress" as a result of being identified, which led to a "depressive illness".

In written submissions, he said qualified pilot Mr Sicri was arrested because the arena bomber, Salman Abedi, had called his phone prior to the attack.

He said police found the call was in connection with "something entirely separate".

Mr Sicri "did not know the bomber, had no connection with him, and was innocent of any involvement whatever in the attack", he added.

The website described Mr Sicri, from Shoreham, as a "trainee Libyan pilot" and used two photographs from his Facebook page.

After this, abusive messages about Mr Sicri were posted on Facebook, including one which read: "Another 9/11 in the making", the court heard.

"He felt paranoid and frightened for his safety," Mr Tomlinson said, adding that he moved away from Shoreham later that year.

The court also heard Mr Sicri lost his part-time job and his business in Libya was attacked.

"Despite having completed his long-term ambition of qualifying as a pilot, the claimant was unable to get any work.

"It is reasonable to infer it was as a result of Google searches which revealed he had been arrested on terrorism charges," Mr Tomlinson said...

That's a very basic rookie mistake. Very surprised that got by an editor on a national newspaper. Even thinking don't worry about it as this Johnny Foreigner wouldn't know about Contempt of Court and libel and he's probably guilty so lets get a scoop, is rank amateurism.
