I've seen others do that, sometimes they like to bring up Greece and that to say isn't this terrible we should leave the EU.
Lexiters are all self-appointed spokespeople for what the people of Greeks think about EU membership and seem to confuse Syriza's policy with Golden Dawn

Platell has a pretty perverse take on the succesfull prosecution of disgraced journalist Mazher Mahmood. She seems to be suggesting that the Tulisa case was a one off mistake on his part.

Why Fergie is a national disgrace and should hang her head in shame

Few things make people more angry more than a blatant miscarriage of justice.
And nothing was so blatant as the way the BBC gleefully broadcast a live 2014 police raid on Sir Cliff Richard’s Berkshire penthouse before he’d even been interviewed, zooming in on officers investigating alleged historic sexual abuse as they rifled through the star’s belongings.
Sir Cliff has, of course, been cleared of all sex assault claims. Yet he was forced to endure 27 months of ‘living hell’ following the broadcast, before being told he would face no charges.
Yesterday, we learned he is suing the BBC and the police for £1 million. Good on him — he deserves every penny after the torture they put him through.
Coincidentally, we heard about another law suit being prepared yesterday. Royal hanger-on Fergie is suing over a tabloid sting in which she was caught red-handed on film six years ago offering access to her former husband Prince Andrew for a princely £500,000.


Fergie was a victim of the News Of The World’s ‘Fake Sheikh’ Mazher Mahmood, who was posing as a businessman prepared to pay to meet Prince Andrew, and claims she deserves compensation because the expose was unfair and lost her millions in potential work and endorsements.
Never mind the fact that Mahmood’s undercover film showed the Duchess very drunk and offering to arrange meetings with her ex. Or that she was caught on camera scooping into her briefcase $40,000 in cash that had been given to her by Mahmood as downpayment.
The fact is that Fergie was exposed as a shocking royal leech prepared to sell her ex-husband’s connections to the highest bidder.
And now she’s got her grasping hands out again, joining other victims of the Fake Sheikh who plan to lodge law suits for compensation after he was found guilty this week of perverting the course of justice in a case involving singer Tulisa Contostavlos.
No one can condone Mahmood’s behaviour. He had tampered with evidence relating to Contostavlos’s prosecution for brokering the supply of cocaine, leading to the collapse of her trial in 2014. Rightly, he faces prison.
But Fergie’s brazen opportunism — when she was caught bang to rights by Mahmood in a truly scandalous case of ‘cash for access’ — is shocking even by her standards.
Her decision to sue could not be more different from Sir Cliff Richard’s law suit against the BBC and the police. The only scandal in his case is that they have got away scot-free for ruining his life by plunging him into a legal nightmare.
Sir Cliff is a national treasure and we should back him all the way in his efforts to achieve justice. Fergie, by contrast, is a national disgrace — and should hang her head in shame.

Where do you start with a paragraph as stupid as this one?
Spouse in the White House
Tuesday, November 8, should be a special day for women as it’s when Hillary Clinton will become the first female U.S. President.
Her campaign has been boosted this week by the support of another great force for womankind, Michelle Obama.
Girls everywhere will be inspired by Mrs Clinton, Mrs Obama said, as she is someone who ‘values and honours women’.
What a triumph for feminism! It’s just sad that two of the most powerful women on Earth achieved their elevated positions only because of the men they married.
Are you hearing me Cherie Blair?

Michelle Obama became first lady because she is married to the man who was elected as president. How else do you get to be first lady? It could also be argued that Michelle played an important part in getting her husband elected as President. In the case of Hilary her poll ratings would be an awful lot better if she hadn't been married to Bill. The dig at Cherie is just stupid because Cherie has had a very successful legal career and could well have had a successful political career if she had become an MP before Tony.

Well, James Buchanan never married, so his niece took the role of First Lady. But yes, family members of presidents generally have the privilege of being paid more attention than your average citizen.

Fuck's sake:
They used to be best friends and collaborators on the TV show A Bit Of Fry & Laurie. Now Hugh, star of the hit U.S. drama House, has been honoured by having his name on the Hollywood Walk Of Fame. Of which washed-up Stephen Fry said: ‘He will spend an eternity having chewing gum and dog poo trodden into him.’ No hard feelings there!
It's called humour, Amanda. You may have noticed that Fry was there for the unveiling.
Binmen in Scotland fear a ban on receiving a Christmas cash thank-you from residents will spread throughout the nation.
They have been warned that if they take anything other than biscuits or sweets, they face the sack.
I’ve always found that unless I hand over a hefty note, my rubbish isn’t collected until the following Christmas.
Are Christmas boxes for the binmen even a thing any more? Or do they refuse to collect your stuff because they think you're a cunt?
