"only in Japan."

I wish - no so. Sadly Police in every country are becoming more and more corrupt.

Isn't it strange listening to British politicians outrage at Russia's "breech of international law" when they are shouting from the rooftops that they intend to "breech of international law," on Brexit/Protocol etc?

They have had zero respect for it themselves. Brexit only being one.

Those torture techniques that psychotic El Shafee Elsheikh used on innocent people were developed in Northern Ireland by psychotics in the British military in internment camops then exported to other countries.

This just confirms the view that politics is rotton with curruption.

She originally got 34 years in total (one 26 another 8 year sentence).

Somehow that got lowered to 20years.The incoming president just waves his magic wand and releases her. Thats curruption added upon curuption. Recently the incoming president who was actually part of the stste prosecution team that convicted her was saying he hoped to meet her for a nice chat.

Meanwhile others less powerful (her father was a dictator) remain in prison.

Is this the best example of an alternative to North Korea?

Irish rebels were taken in chains on cattle ships and brutally enslaved in the Caribbean by the British also. Though their slavery could end at least. Africans were slaves for life and even their children were. That's absolutely sick. The Royal Family also pinned medals on the chest of British soldiers who murdered innocent people on Bloody Sunday 50 years ago this year. Apologies are not enough for such abuses. Britain should pull out of Ireland and pay reparations for the genocide there and for the Famine, and also pay reparations for slavery of Africans.

Hey Buchailldana, I wonder is Ireland's poor world cup record because Ireland will never be able to get as fired up to beat any teams like they can against British sides? We all know that the Irish love everybody else, maybe that's the problem? (Full credit due for to Scotland for their impressive win).

"and which country in the world can the wealthy/connected NOT buy or directly influence?"

I actually think that we, as a global community should reject our own nations honors systems and make changes e.g. suggested by some comments above. Not unique to Britain, every country has versions of this.

When I was collecting my last hard-earned degree, there was some plonker getting an "Honorary Degree" far as I could see just being rich and successful. He clearly didnt need it. But it gave he who had everything else - more.

I think honorary degrees should only be awarded to people who missed out on their education. Some big-shots have over 10 honorary degrees. That is obscene and an insult to graduates who sweat for their degrees.

Hi Yrral, Perhaps that should be "Pie in Space?"

I'm ok with Space exploration as long as they don't leave any junk up there. To much up there already.

But I think/hope Japan will be responsible, so I support this.

Hangover Tip: Goats milk (chilled). (Therefore) I love Goats milk (&cheese, yogurts).

Re: "I’d feed them high quality grass if I could.”

The great thing about Goats is they are not interested in such grass. They eat lots of herbs. Some things people see as weeds are very useful herbs. Female Goats eat them and we get the best form of milk on the planet (and practically zero methane).

Posted in: Many scientists are atheists, but that doesn't mean they are anti-religious See in context

I am post-religion. I get absolutely furious when people hurt others in the name of religion, because we all know the science completely contradicts such fantasies. But what I find just as objectionable are the people who set up "Artiest" associations, with spokespeople using atheism as a platform for self-promotion as a kind of atheist religion and they of course are the new atheist-religion leaders.

Posted in: Ireland thrash below-par Japan 60-5 See in context

This is a usual typical begrudging article on Ireland. It wasn't that Japan were so bad. Ireland were absolutely outstanding running, passing (even prop Tadhg Furlong passing and running at japan as if he was a young wing back) and mauling like it was a practice session. They were simply awesome and didn't allow Japan to get into gear. So the Blossoms shouldn't be discouraged. Any of the best teams in the world at present would have struggled with that Irish performance. If they can do it again next week it will be a real test for the men in black.

That's an assault. No security guard can lay a finger on anyone unless he is himself assaulted or defending another who is being assaulted.

Rod is 75 years old. Even his son is in his 40's. Hardly bare knuckle fighters either, are they?

A nobody security guard looking for fame and fortune.

When responsible leaders are encouraging both communities to cooperate wherever possible Frost has been claiming that cross-border trade in Ireland is wrong and should be avoided. He is a Tori bigot trying to stir-up trouble between the sides. No doubt if trouble arises from such comments he will be the first to patronizingly say "typical Irish, they cant get on with each other".

"Unlikely, the Queen as a matter of rule never takes Sides."

The Queen pinned medals on the uniforms of Paratroopers who murdered innocent people on Bloody Sunday.

The Royal Family are the symbolic head of the British Armed Forces.

They are in so much trouble with Andrew and their wayward son, this smacks of desperation.

That all said, I have nothing against the British having their own Monarchs. Its none of my business, best of luck to them - unless they support the occupation of Northern Ireland, which they do.
