Could it just be that China offers a better deal than becoming a vassal state of the US or Australia?

He had legally bought two such rifles just days before.

And yet many US citizens find it difficult to see the problem? Actually I don't believe this. They know what the problem is and also the solution. The death of children and cinema goers is a price they are willing to pay for their "freedom" and love of guns. Until enough of the "gun crowd" lose loved ones, nothing will change.

Thoughts and prayers until the next incident.

Posted in: Russia takes steps to bolster army, tighten grip on Ukraine See in context

Ukraine was not ready to cede control of areas occupied by Russian forces for the sake of reaching a peace agreement, saying some Western lobbyists are pushing Kyiv to do so.

Cracks already appearing in the Western block.... Or just reality sinking in?

Posted in: More turn to UK food banks as food and fuel bills soar See in context

Luddite....

This isn’t about scrounging and scamming free food, it’s about people being priced out of basic needs such as gas, electricity, rent and food.

Yet it seems they can still afford their cigs, beer and Sky TV.

Make better life choices.

I don't question their use of food banks, I would love to be given free food. Over 9.5 million adults of working age are on benefits the UK. Not all of them are deserving.

Gotta find a way to make up those billions lost on Tokyo 2020 right.

sorry to be the bringer of bad news but holding this event will only ADD to the losses. World athletics is not a money maker.

It's similar to supporting Libraries, Museums, Parks, etc. Pursuit of excellence in physical culture, one of the oldest in human history since ancient Greek, is believed to be beneficial to the general public.

Libraries, museums and parks ARE in the public interest. Holding the world Athletic championship for a week with little interest is NOT in the public interest. I would suggest using the money wasted on the athletics to support more parks, museums and libraries.

The stadiums were empty despite Mike Powell's world record.

There are soccer fans, Rugby fans, baseball fans and even a few tennis fans but Athletics "fans" just don't exist.

Why does Tokyo want to waste more of its tax payers money?

Disability living allowance is £64.5 a week BUT he will also get Universal credit personal independence payments. Up to £4000 a year for a vehicle if needed. Housing benefit to pay for his accomodation, possibly meals on wheels free lunches, and a free TV license. Not living the high life but a lot more than the £64.50 stated.

Mickelicious......

Or you could grow a pair and ban the steel phallus altogether.

Too obvious. I think it would be a great idea but sadly its already been suggested and rejected. Something about the slave owning founding fathers having an idea years ago that cannot be changed...

How about scrapping PE in schools and instead having firearms lessons? Then issue every student with a rifle to protect themselves?

Or more thoughts and prayers...But really mean them this time?

Posted in: Ukraine: 200 bodies found in basement in Mariupol's ruins See in context

An Associated Press investigation found that close to 600 people died in the theater attack, double the figure estimated by Ukrainian authorities.

And yet when other journalists actually visited the site they found no such evidence. This "200 dead in the cellar" story will probably turn out to be more propaganda from Kiev.

At least 21,000 people were killed in the siege, according to Ukrainian authorities

Like this....

and this...

who have accused Russia of trying to cover up the horrors by bringing in mobile cremation equipment and by burying the dead in mass graves.

Long debunked by people who actually visited the "grave site".

These kind of attacks are easily preventable. Just make all lessons online at home and issue all students a military grade flak jacket and helmet. With an armed police guard outside every home.

Or you could just take away the assault rifles from mentally unstable people..... Or just do nothing but wring hands, and give a few thoughts and prayers as usual.

Matt Hartwell...

The 118 pounds ($145) of benefits he gets every two weeks don’t go far.

If that is the total sum, that is incredibly low. Must be more to it, like savings this guy has or am I wrong?

You are not wrong. He will get help with his rent, utilities, council tax, probably a mobility allowance if he is obese.

But this is no cause or excuse for a ''gay panic' or gay-bashing hysteria like what happened in the US during the 80s and 90s. And monkeypox is not AIDS.

Agreed, it's not fair to blame the gays or ravers.... Much of the fault lies with the monkeys.

The Japanese government knew its citizens had been abducted and kept it secret while doing nothing. They urged the families of the victims to keep quiet too. They should have cut ALL remittances to North Korea, followed by the repatriation or imprisonment of influential pro NK Koreans in Japan.

Hopefully they will be replaced by coffee shops serving better coffee at a more reasonable price. This could be great for Russia.

So what's the Russian equivalent of Mac? Nittori? IKEA? Oh and dont forget, when Mac pulls out, it's a direct effect on close to 100,000 others who work in industries directly related to supporting Mac. Farmers, ranchers, delivery folks, all up and down the supply chain, they are all affected by it.

McDonald's Russian stores have already been bought by the largest franchiser in Russia... they will open under a different name with the same products. There will be knock on effects, mostly temporary, but people are still going to eat.

Oh and dont compare MOS to Mac, people are not going to suddenly run to MOS, it's too expensive by comparison!

McDonalds IS the MOS of Russia.. the others are cheaper.
