    After reading the thread about the twit of a woman driving into the gas mains in Benfleet and the few slightly sexist remarks that followed, it made me think about which of the sexes really is the worse drivers. Don't get me wrong, Im the first to admit that there are plenty of idiot women...

  10. Cyclone in Burma

    I am baffled by the appeals for money for Burma. As I understand it, the country is a major exporter of pearls rubies and sapphires. It also has offshore gas and oil supplies. My question is- where has all this money gone. I know Burma has had a military junta since 1962 so is the answer that...

Regardless of your stance on the death penalty you've got to raise your hat to Michael Portillo who breathed in CS gas, went in a simulator where he experienced 5G's and apoxia...literally seconds from death (ok, there were people with him), but I'm not sure I'd fancy being in his...
