Former prime minister Tony Abbott has used a speech in London to call on European leaders to close their borders to asylum seekers or risk imperilling their nations.
Abbott used the occasion to promote the Coalition’s hardline asylum seeker policies as a solution to Europe’s migrant crisis, which has seen hundreds of thousands of people, mainly from the Middle East, cross into the continent.
The former PM urged regional leaders to act by “turning around boats and denying entry at the border for people with no right to come” :: Read the full article »»»»
Whats most amusing about this story isn’t Hallmarks heart-felt grab at revenue – that’s what business does – No, No, the most amusing angle seems to have been missed by mainstream print media – possibly because most newspapers are printed locally !
A Boston lawyer – Simon Glik– is suing the city and police officers who arrested him for using his cell phone to record what he described as a rough arrest. Glick suspects that the police who arrested him wanted more to protect themselves from a possible misconduct complaint than to enforce the state’s privacy laws. The charges against Glik were thrown out of court. However, Glik sued for violations of his civil rights. The First Circuit ruled today that the officers are not protected by qualified immunity :: Read the full article »»»»
So, friendsicles: how many of you had the email from “beejoli” forwarded to you this morning and have subsequently sent it along to others? thousand, we’re betting!? Its validaty remains unknown but we do know Gawker is dutifully trying to track down “beejoli” to see if her random night with the notoriously foot-loving director is on the up. We have a sneaky suspicion this is simply the Hollywood PR wheels turning. Tarantino’s next film Django Unchained is due for release in the not so distant future. Is Hollywood just reminding us to Not Forget our favorite Director, an odd insurance perhaps, we know it’s not a fundraiser, Tarantino has secured finance on the flick? Here’s the email, judge for yourselves and please pass along any information about it, pretty please.

Subject: I meet Quentin Tarantino, hilarity ensues
To: Kira O’Connor
You are either getting this e-mail because I’ve promised I would tell you this story and haven’t yet, you’re besties with someone I used to hook up with, or because my need for attention and adulation has reached such an all time high that I decided to pick 15 of you at random to listen to this story (most likely explanation), but all the same, below is the (in)famous but true story of how I met Quentin Tarantino…Adam and Ethan, I’ll be expecting your short film script of this in my inbox in the next couple of weeks…
During a morning phone call March 4 to the Access Hollywood Live show, our Charlie told hosts Billy Bush and Kit Hoover, “My mum – actress Janet Templeton – is Jewish” Carlos Irwin Estevez went on “So I guess that would make me Jewish and my children Jewish. And Brooke Mueller, my ex-wife, is Jewish. So I guess I should have rolled that out, too.”
A perplexed Bush told Charlie, “You’re getting accused of anti-Semitic remarks – you might want to say, ‘By the way, I’m Jewish!’ “
Our Charlie responded, “I know, I know – stupid me. I just got caught sleeping, caught napping, which is rare for me. Anywho … But I’m proud of it. There you have it.”
Charlie, 45, star of the hit TV comedy “Two and a Half Men,” which has been suspended for the rest of this season and may be canceled, lashed out last month at the Anti-Defamation League following its charge that Charlie had exhibited “borderline anti-Semitism” in referring to his producer, Chuck Lorre, by his Hebrew name, Chaim Levine. Charlie has demanded an apology from the ADL.
Our Charlie, has a long history of drug and alcohol abuse, that he’s still ranting is testament – he believes – to his inherited genetic superiority, Go Charlie Go!
“Mossad is trying to hurt Egyptian Tourism any way possible, the sharkis one wayfor it to realize thisplan” explained Abed Al-Fadij.
Egypt’s Governor of Southern Sinai lays the blame for recent shark attacks on Israel’s intelligence agency – Mossad.
Southern Sinai Governor Abed Al-Fadij said: “We must not discount the possibility that Mossad threw the shark into the sea, in order to attack tourists who are having fun in Sharm al-Sheikh.” In the last few days, Egypt has lifted the ban on bathing that was issued after four Russian tourists were attacked by sharks. Egyptians killed two sharks that were suspected in a series of attacks on bathers. One of the sharks was 2.1 meters long and weighed 150 kg. The other was 30 cm longer and weighed 250 kg.
