  1. Another attack on Coptic Christians in Egypt today as well. 26 dead and a further 25 injured Is this our fault and the West's fault too? https://www.theguardian.com/world/2017/may/26/several-killed-in-attack-on-bus-carrying-coptic-christians-in-egypt
  2. Some absolutely superb batting this afternoon. SA will need 340 to win!
  3. I could picture every single part of that and had a smile on my face all the way through reading it. What a story, what a man!
  4. I edited my post about 3 times as the information actually became clearer. I think I'll just shut up again now instead of rushing posts. Hopefully more arrests to follow.
  5. Manchester Police confirm a man has been arrested at the Arndale Centre. Also confirm a 23 year old man has been arrested in South Manchester in connection with last nights attack. It's all going on.
  6. Maybe so, but you'd think there would be some form of substance for the police to evacuate the area. The witness report saying they heard shots could well be purely down to nerves etc, when you convince yourself you heard something but probably didn't. The Arndale Centre is re-opening now anyway, and still awaiting confirmation of what happened. EDIT: Whether it's linked to what just happened or not (it may well be due to the timing), a 23 year old man has been arrested in connection to last nights bombing.
  7. I went for a long weekend for a stag do last year. The architecture is spectacular if that's your sort of thing, got a decent zoo, the hot springs are decent if it's sunny, though be prepared for any women in your party to be ogled by locals. The beer isn't the best but even the branded beers are still ridiculously cheap. In fact, almost everything is insanely cheap from what I found. The area down by the river isn't too bad when it opens up, with outdoor dining etc. The park with all the Communist era statues and monuments is fairly interesting too, again, if that's your thing.
  8. Police now evacuating the area around the Arndale Centre. Fingers crossed it's just a precaution or a suspicious package with nothing in it, similar to the other one last night. Reports of shots fired and one man arrested....Though that's just from one witness report. Nothing official yet.
  9. Hope the charity event goes well. It's never easy to lose a loved one. Get well soon too!
  10. As someone who has for the main part, voted right, I'm completely at a loss at what to do. I've always said I'm open to vote other ways if i felt it was right, but for me, none of them are fit to lead the country right now. The Conservative manifesto is, in the large part, poor in my eyes and the 'dementia tax' is disgusting. For the first time, I might actually just not bother voting. I can't bring myself vote for any of them. ---
  11. I think my FM is broken. It's August 2018 and Wayne Rooney has signed for Motherwell and is on 4k per week
  12. If that's the case, I semi-retract my previous post. I'll have a bit more of a read up on the situation.
  13. Two completely different scenarios there. Any President has absolute authority to discuss and share whatever information they like, it's not illegal. Classified information will have been shared with ourselves, and vice versa. Just imagine how much information Israel has received from the USA, or how much Iran gained from the USA/Obama during their dealings. It's really a nothing story.
  14. Ha, I thought there might have been a chance of getting through a discussion without your doom-mongering, but there it is! I have to admit, you're not alone in that little conspiracy theory as it's something I've thought for quite some years myself, and when taking all things in to account, it's incredibly plausible. Only when the 'assets' have been stripped will the true low carbon/renewable/electronic energy tech be revealed. From a business point of view, you can't blame them, but it's beyond shitty to screw over the world's population and the Earth itself for short term monetary gain. Ah well. As previously said, that's something for another day. There's something about Musk which I find a little questionable but I can't quite put my finger on what At least he's trying new things and moving things forward though. On the domestic front, I quite like Tesla's 'Powerwall' solar storage units and they have been a good step forward, considering the previous best were all the size of fridges!
  15. It's just a never ending shit-cycle I'm afraid. Haha is that the traditional Leicsmac underlying tone and warning of impending doom? Despite working in the engineering industry and clean/renewable energy, no governments around the world really fill me confidence. The same way in which the technology for cheap and efficient electric cars is already there....real investment or application of such technologies won't occur until there's no more money left in carbon based energies. That's a discussion for another day though.
