Would not be surprised at arriving at a time when Ryanair emergency-lands, tries to enact oxygen mask/yellow slide surcharge.

Date-rape drugs are largely an urban myth used as an excuse by women who booze themselves into a stupor, it has been claimed.

Unfortunately he couldn't find a publisher for the sequel, "The 50 People Who Bought The 50 People Who Buggered-Up Britain".

And what's with the hyphen?!??!

There are occasions when you have to legitimately, unironically love the DM, and the caption for the top photo in this article is one of them.

Stephen – after his doting dad, Stephen
Malachai – after a character in the horror film, Children of the Corn
Peppermint – after Sara started craving mints during her fourth pregnancy
Echo – after a group of eco-campaigners who Stephen met during a job at work
Eli – another character in the 1984 film Children of the Corn
Rogue – a character in the film X-Men
Frodo – hobbit in Lord of the Rings

However best rated comment reminds me why I should never never read the comments.

This is a form of child abuse as her other young children can't all be receiving dedicated care from her.

She should be sterilized immediately.

If she had the money to support her large brood then she could have as many babies as she wants to but whilst everyone else is paying for them she should be stopped NOW.

I met someone who was seriously considering 'Rogan' as a first name for their son, middle name 'Josh'.

Last week, they were cleared of insulting a Muslim guest when high-profile ‘hate crime’ allegations were thrown out by a judge to public applause. But, faced with £400,000 of debt and the wreckage of a business they say has been all but destroyed by the controversy, there has been little celebration for Ben and Sharon – just bewilderment at the way they have been treated.

The experience has left them questioning their faith in the police, in the Crown Prosecution Service and in a British establishment that seems bent on protecting all manner of rights and sensitivities. Unless, that is, you are a church-going Christian.

It has done little to improve their confidence in the way their case was handled to learn that Detective Constable Tracy O’Hara, the officer who played a leading role in the prosecution for the unusual crime of religiously aggravated harassment and took charge of their interrogation, is a leading light in the Merseyside Police Gay And Lesbian Support Network.

Fucking queers, and their political correctness gone mad

NickB - that was exactly my thought on seeing the news reports on this. I guess they had more sense than to take the same line themselves.
