    Why do they make driving gloves with fingers and thumbs that are touchscreen friendly for texting, when doing so is hazadous to both the driver and everyone around them?

    Fast food shops 'flooding high streets'

    Why is it that the more food shows there are on TV the more takeaways are bought? And looking at the maps the highest numbers of takeaways are in some of the poorest areas?

    Why do people blame fast food and takeaway places for making them fat? It's not like they drag you in off the street and force feed you is it?

    No but they will be severely curtailed, so those who like an occasional treat are about to suffer because some people have no self control. Again.

    I think we should ban everything and the Government should issue 3 perfectly nutritious, calorie counted, food cubes, per person, per day.

    All persons should take part in a compulsory 1 hour fitness program per day which will be monitored by a government supplied and fitted heart monitor. (Except on Sundays where fitness hour will be replaced with spiritual well being hour).

    I like that idea cider_and_toast but I really think we need to put it too a referendum to decide.

    I can just imagine the claims about NHS on buses now.....

    Let's be honest, Soylent Green is the solution to all the world's problems but no one is brave enough to get things started.

    I hope these cubes are making allowances for food allergies, special diets that people have to adhere to for their health, vegetarians, vegans, kosher, halal...... need I go on? ;)

    But I only ear beef with a nut and seed crusti slathered with a double cream and white wine mushroom gravy.

    While I'm still relatively healthy I propose we all become Christian Scientists and study Darwinism in action :)

    Oh yes, you'll be able to select a cube that meets all of your dietary and religious requirements.

    Someone has tried to steal an original copy of the Magna Carta from Salisbury cathedral. What on earth was he going to do with it? I mean I am sure some private buyer somewhere would pay big bucks for it, maybe it was even being stolen to order, but thankfully he didn't manage it. Salisbury can't catch a break can it?

    Man arrested on suspicion of trying to steal Magna Carta

    Maybe those two Russian guys wanted a souvenir and forgot to stop at the gift shop on their way home.
    Anyone checked if they made a return visit recently?

    No, they have to pay their own expenses in a gulag. They don’t stay long.

    The card machines stopped for an hr where i work today. It was amazing to see how in an increasingly cashless society how quickly things ground to halt. Because maybe 3/4 of the people i had to notify either left without shopping or had to join the increasing queue get cash out.

    After the visa issue across Europe few months ago. I was always wary now to make sure i always have a back up incase

    I don't like using cards for everything, when I go out, I always take cash with me. For one thing, if you pay by cash it stops you buying things you know you can't afford but would like, even though you shouldn't have them ;)

    Is this going too far?

    Radio station pulls Baby It's Cold Outside

    If this should be banned should this as well?
