Luis Suarez could be banned for up to two years if he is found guilty of biting a player for the third time.
Banned for up to two years... if found guilty? It is this kind of behaviour that we don't want our kids to copy. There is no place in football for this kind of behaviour. And we mustn't forget this is the third time he has done this if found guilty. I watched the video clip and it sure as hell looks to me as if he lunged for that player with his nashers...
There is clearly something wrong with this man's head to keep behaving like this, unless of course he is just a bloody bully on the pitch.
Is two years long enough if he gets found guilty? Nope I don't think so... I would ban him for life. We don't need people like that in the game.
The Iraqi Prime Minister claims the Islamists are being driven out as President Obama admits the army's collapse is "a problem".
Sorry I have got to have a rant here... what did we expect? All things in the garden to be rosy? We went into Iraq without a game plan and when we ousted Saddam we left a power vacuum. Now that all the troops of pulled out... they are going to fight amongst themselves who gets power.
Did we really think we could enforce democracy onto people, who don't have a clue of how to handle it? It has taken civil wars, conflicts and god knows what else until we learnt to have democracy via the ballot box. These countries, like Egypt and Libya have that journey to make until they like us ... put down the gun and elect via the ballot box. Their culture is different to ours, and they are on a learning curve, but our pig-headed warmongering politicians didn't think of the end game and what could happen... did they? Blair jumped on Bushes bandwagon and in a way we have disestablished that region. Afghanistan will go the way of Iraq once all the troops have gone.
Twitter and Facebook users are to be warned about the dangers of prejudicing high-profile prosecutions in a historic move designed to make contempt of court laws fit for the social media age.
I said it wouldn't be long before something was done.. Trouble is he can release all the guidelines he likes.. but until some people are hauled before the courts and dealt with harshly then nothing is going to change.
Businessman Lord James said the incident happened on the roads leading to Twickenham as they travelled to watch England play rugby union
So kids on a bus mooning need to be behind bars? Seriously though, although it was not a desireable thing to see, why this pair are so shocked is beyond me.. Mooners have been around for ages.. Do they deserve to be put behind bars? Absolutely not.
We can have papers full of boobs on page 3 but mooners are a no-no.. for god sake man get real. I found it quite funny to be honest..
Jeremy Hunt secures BMA’s agreement to publish pay of GPs, in return for waiving some targets and handing performance-related pay direct to doctors
Do you know what? I don't care what my GP earns. I don't care about targets.. all I care about is the standard of healthcare. I care abou whether or not I can get an appointment with my GP when I am ill. I care about the time my GP spends trying to diagnose what is wrong with me. Patient care must come first. And by publishing GP's pay, if Jeremy Hunt things it will change things, it won't. Just another bloody mad-brain scheme from this Government.
Mind you I do care how much our MP's earn and what expenses they claim..
SHE'S already managed to wind up both Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield during her regular appearances on This Morning, but it looks as though even the famous mums are getting fed up of Katie Hopkins and her outspoken opinion.
Having read Katie Hopkins timeline and how she persecutes the family of a missing child.. I think Peaches Geldof summed it up correctly when she labelled Hopkins a rent-a-gob for the Sun.
Now I don't buy newspapers online.. and I definitely wouldn't even consider paying a penny for a red top that has Hopkins in it as a columist.
How that Hopkins woman thinks she is the bees knees I don't know.. but her exploits with another woman's husband make her as my nan would say ... all fur coat and no kinickers type of broad.
A pottering pensioner has been videoed holding up a coach full of German tourists as they made their way around the crowded streets of Edinburgh.
As much as they give independence to disabled people, I really do think some of these people need driving lessons... In our local supermarket.. there is one who you have to dodge.. no way are they going to move .. straight up the middle of the aisle .. full throttle and trolleys flying everywhere.
STRICTY'S Lisa Riley has revealed she was driven to drink as she tried to cope with fame....
Lisa Riley has such a great personality.. she is bubbly and a fresh of breath air.. how people can pick on someone because of their size is beyond me.. It is like picking on a war veteran in a wheelchair because he has no legs.. the fact that he lost his legs due to fighting for his country is neither here nor there.. there are some really wicked people in this world who just enjoy being a bully.
Psychologist Penelope Leach, whose parenting books have sold millions, has caused controversy by claiming that there's evidence that separation from their mothers "reduces brain development" and might give rise to "unhealthy attachment issues". Do other parenting experts agree?
What a load of bollocks... to put it bluntly. What causes children emotional distress and probably causes lack of brain development, is having to be piggy in the middle with two warring parents. Children are resilient, if a relationship breaks down children need to know that it is not their fault that mum and dad no longer live together and that both parents love them dearly.
They also need to bond with their fathers and having weekends at dad's can be beneficial in developing that bond.
All the likes of this article does, is give ammunition for those women who refuse to allow their kids proper access with their fathers. Now they will use this as a reason why?
Unfortunately all too often, kids are used a tool to bash the absent parent with... and anybody who does that is not worthy of the title of mum or dad.
The teenage cancer sufferer and actors Angelina Jolie and Daniel Day-Lewis are among those in the Queen's Birthday Honours List.
Oh this is wonderful news. I am so glad to hear thatStephen was alive and knew he was getting this award. He deserves it. Even though his parents, family and friends are still coming to terms with their loss, they must be busting with pride at what their selfless son did for a worthy charity. A great young man, gone too soon. We need more people like Stephen in this world... RIP Stephen xx
DOZENS of Muslim protesters walked with one of Britain's most controversial hate preachers to demand restaurants and shops in one of London's most popular areas stop selling alcohol.
If this story is true.. then it is appalling that this march was even allowed to go ahead.. If I walked up and down my street and said people living in odd number houses would be flogged if they did this or that.. I would be arrested for threatening behaviour.. wouldn't I? This is not about being anti-muslim or anything.. this is about the law being broken.. with threats to harm people.. which the last time I looked was illegal in this country..
I would not be allowed to act like this.. and neither should any other religion.. And it seems to me. if this story is true, as if the Police are pandering to groups like this if they don't stop such rallies taking place, especially if they think police intervention would cause unrest.
The existing consent at 16 law was introduced over 100 years ago in a puritanical Victorian era. Since then, society has moved on to more informed and enlightened attitudes about sex...
Sex is not just about two consenting adults.. it is about trust, love and relationships and those involve maturity. Some sixteen year olds are not mature enough to be left alone yet alone have a sexual relationship.
Yes all the facts could be there to prove that kids reach puberty earlier.. but the question is are they adult enough to accept that change in puberty.. my experience is no.
If you lower the age to say 14, then 12 years and even younger will be entering into sexual relationships. One thing about kids is that they will try anything they know they are not legally allowed to.. for instance going into a pub and buying an alcoholic drink. They get the thrill out of doing this because they have managed to fool some landlord or bar maid into serving them a drink.. They smoke behind the bike shed because they think it is grown up.. and the same with lowering the age of consent, younger people will think it is cool to have sex.
Would Peter Tatchell, say young people should be able to vote at 14? Of course he wouldn't. If youngsters are not legally an adult until they are 18, then how can you expect 14 years to be socially responsible enough to have sex. Some 14 year olds are not mature enough ... end of.. and it is these that the law protects. FFS... you have a whole life-time of having sex once you reach 16.. why the rush?
It does make me laugh though.. you can have sex at 16 but you can't vote at 16. I agree with Peter Tatchell that those who have consensual sex should not be labelled sex offenders and should not be on the sex offenders register. But laws are there and it doesn't criiminalise under age sex imo. There needs to be an age limit as I said before.. it you lower the legal age limit to 14, then kids younger than that will want to try sex out.
Peter Tatchell also speaks about a tiered level of consent whereby providing both are consenting and there is only a 2-3 year gap these kids should not be prosectued. But again Peter doesn't think about the young school girl of 14 coming on 15, who has an older boyfriend of say 18+. Girls mature a lot quicker than boys do.. and therefore for a girl of 14-15 who has matured will look for an elder boy to form a relationship and not one of her own age..
The only thing I agree with him on is these kids not being on the sex offenders register. Funny though.. all of us seemed to grow up OK with this law... and yes there was under-age sex going on.. But again those caught would be given a swift telling off and would have not been put on the sex-offenders register back in those days.
If you love somebody, set them free, so the song goes – advice which Debbi Wood is unable to take on board.
Othello syndrome.. new one on me. I'd call it a bloody control freak.. Sorry but this behaviour is not natural.. and no man will take this behaviour forever, without cracking at some point.
Wonder how she would feel if she kept being accused of looking at men.. Well I hope they don't holiday abroad where topless bathing goes on.. cos the poor bloke will definitely need Factor 50 on the back of his head and neck.. and an appointment at his GP upon his return, where he has a crick in his neck... by having to look down at the ground all the time.
Trust is an integral part of a relationship.. there is no trust here. And as I said Othello syndrome is a new one on me.
A Government-funded scheme will see new mothers offered shopping vouchers in an attempt to make them breastfeed.
As much as I agree with breastfeeding babies, but seriously I don't see why woman should be rewarded for doing it. I thought this Country had no money yet we can find money for projects like this.. whilst we evict people from their homes because they have a spare bedroom.
There are women out there who would love to breastfeed their babies but can't due to various reasons.. either they babies wouldn't take from the breast or because they had problems that prevented them being breastfed.
Those women won't be rewarded.. which in my view could play heavily on a young mum's mind, especially if she wanted to breastfeed and she couldn't.. it could make her feel inadequate as a mother.
Seriously I can't believe this Government at times..
