Oh dear!
...

It doesn't mean you are going to go out and kill people. Maybe a career in politics would work for you? ;)

How dare you! :)

Thinking about it though, i'm a chemist by training, Angela Merkel is also a chemist and Germany seems to be doing well.
Thatcher was a chemist and apparently the 1980s were pretty good for Britain. (I wasn't born for much of it).

You can't ban something just from accusations, they need to be substantiated (as this case in India has been by medical evidence).
It's the burden of proof.

It is time some bimbos grew up, and stopped bringing parliament and parliamentarians into disrepute.

So your answer to this please...

What MP's really do while in the Commons

It probably did less harm than anything else he might be up to.

Perhaps both countries had recently participated in a large global conflict?

OHIO police have confirmed that an 18 year old man who died last week had been playing Russian roulette.

Natural selection!

Perhaps they do:)
Actually I was asked some days ago if we should have some for Christmas.
I told her yes!
But here in Scandinavia we have a more powerful tool.

Oh dear god! I tried some of that once, still have nightmares!

yes Bob he did .

One sick nutter alright and i'm glad they couldn't find any of his hair or bone to map his D.N.A some twit would try and clone him .


Leaving aside the fact that human cloning doesn't really work, so what if someone did?

There's a lot more goes into making a person than just their genetic makeup. Upbringing, education, world events, etc. Hitler's rise to power came as a result of the stricken state of Germany after the first world war. Since Germany is currently one of the world's strongest economies the conditions to mold another fascist regime don't exist.
A cloned Hitler today would probably have far more success as a painter than a world leader.

He couldn't get them out, so decides to work from within.

2015 is going to be an interesting year

Sounds like he isn't popular in Gordon though, so maybe nothing to worry about.

That would be nice, but that giant elephant in the room will prevent that from ever happening...

"By the time he left, in October 2012, the school was hugely on the up. But then the governors immediately and systematically unravelled his changes, and results predicted for this year are lower than ever."

Well that clearly wasn't his fault. If the governors took the first opportunity to undo his hard work once he'd left i fail to see how that reflects badly on him.

In either position, he'd make an excellent one...

Minister for Education or Prime Minister?

He couldn't be minister of education; he's intelligent, motivated and competent!

On a serious note, i agree with you. Probably better to start at the ministry of education as that's where his knowledge would be most applicable.

It is time some bimbos grew up, and stopped bringing parliament and parliamentarians into disrepute. I hope she resigns or is sacked.

Because parliament doesn't need any help in that area.

Fact remains he was still holding a gun in public. What it shoots is a secondary concern.

Well no actual. See, Ohio has open carry laws, meaning that individuals, provided that they have gotten the gun legally, are very much within their legal rights to wave their guns around. What the police did here was kill a law abiding citizen.

See America, you can't have your cake and eat it too. This right here is the perfect example of why having open carry laws are idiotic.

Please tell me 12 year olds can't legally purchase guns.

Another kid dead over gun stupidity. :-(

Update on this.

Fact remains he was still holding a gun in public. What it shoots is a secondary concern.

They said on the radio this morning that in Britain 5 people have been fatally shot by police in the last 4 years. In America over the same time period it's 1600.

Girl Power

"If only more people would "'fess up" to not having all the answers, politics might be more engaging, the room heard."

That would be a great start.


Or at least the "real" version of Newsnight interviews - with subtitles breaking down what politicians are really saying.


That sounds risky.

Politician: “We must learn from the past, not be the past. Decide or decline. That is the choice. We must choose the future.”
Subtitle: "Help! I don't know what i'm doing!"

Seems odd that Tesco would risk halving their potential market in such a manner.
