I suspect that would be the other way round.   :azn:

Impasse starts with an I
Westminster and southern media types like it to start with an O

Ompasse.

In French it would be ampasse.

Au is covered by au (au revoir for example).  :azn:

Not one to miss out on an opportunity for some publicity, Yuri Geller claimed he was responsible for bursting the pipes that led to the water leak in the HoC yesterday.

It was the leads that were leaking though, no pipes were involved. (fekin clown)  :cheesy:

Mr Bird said dying on stage would have been the way the veteran comic "would have wanted to go", "except he'd want more money and a bigger venue".

That's golden... :grin:

It infuriates me that. They're finding the tiniest loopholes to stay open, ever since the government announced free school. Not when they make me Education Secretary they won't.

Notre  Dame. What a bloody shame. I was only  in it once, before I was old enough to appreciate it. I remember it as dark and foreboding. The French don't renovate their paintings in the way we choose to do.

Assange being accused of smearing shit on the walls by the Ecuadorian's, smells whiffier than Assange actually smearing shit on the walls.

Surely they'd have thrown him out the same day if he'd done that. Is he mad?

That's the point, they would have.

Hilarious as it sounds, it's probably a smear campaign. :grin:

Port Talbot explosion:

This used to happen every few years at Ravenscraig (the local glazers were happy) when tipped molten slag hit a pool of water.
Maybe someone left a cupola in the rain.  (that's almost a song)  :cheesy:

“Go Huawei and shut up” reads a headline, referring to a former minister’s most infamous speech to the Russians

How cringey was that comment at the time.
Someone should have belted his lug and kicked him off the podium.

I almost choked with laughter

How about telling a country with military might far greater than us, to “go away and shut up”. People in the Kremlin must have been in stitches

BBC bias in action again.

Apparently the local elections (in rUK) were bad for the Tories and Labour, but that line isn't accurate, is it?
It's been catastrophic for UKIP and only slightly less so for the Tories.

UKIP, once the darlings of the right wing BBC propaganda machine have almost been wiped out and are now down to a handful of councillors, but that's barely mentioned in their reports.
Instead they concentrate on the Tory/Labour story, but the results aren't really comparable, in that the Tories have lost about 1300 seats so far and Labour about 100.

p.s. Here's a good one.
This is a headline from the Telegraph last month.
"Tories on course to lose control of councils across country as Ukip 'returns from dead' in Brexit backlash."

Well, they were half right.  :cheesy:

The point they made about Labour was that Labour had done badly at the last elections so had far fewer seats to loose in comparison. I'm delighted UKIP did badly, less pleased the Greens did a touch better.

That's not the case at all, they were drawing a direct comparison between the two parties, where there was no comparison to make.
Conservative lose 1200 seats
Labour lose 81 seats

How can that possibly be construed as major loss for both parties?
And still they barely mentioned UKIP's losses, which should have been a major point of note.

Farage himself appeared on BBC QT over 30 times, possibly more times than anyone else in the history of the show (despite his party never having an elected MP) and their representatives appeared on almost a quarter of the shows since 2010 , but their devastating losses are swept under the carpet today?

Any shred of credibility the BBC had has evaporated in my opinion.
