"There has to be something wrong with a world where the best employment option for a farmer in sub-Saharan Africa isn’t being a farmer in sub-Saharan Africa, but crossing the Mediterranean on a punctured lilo, only to spend days dangling under a lorry so that he can end up selling lollipops in a nightclub toilet. Our indifference is staggering. For a lot of these people, their best chance of survival may be to dress up as a leopard and hope to get Twitter onside.

Of course, the true existential threat to us might come from ourselves. If we can look at another human being and categorise them as “illegal”, or that chilling American word “alien”, then what has become of our own humanity?"
 
Ugh
The indifference of the British to the plight of the Calais refugees is staggering – we criticise the desperate people who probably have a good claim to asylum, but well up over lorries in a traffic jam

Doesn't take much to scare people these days
"Cristian Ivan, 42, from Romania, "fell in love with Iran" when he visited in 2010. He is now travelling across Europe in a van with the slogan "Iran is Great" on the side.

Counter-terror police were alerted to a "suspicious vehicle" when he parked it outside the Science Museum on Monday.

The museum was evacuated and roads were shut for two hours for investigations."

#London #Iran 
A mobile home being used to promote Iran is at the centre of a major security alert in central London, resulting in the evacuation of the Science Museum.

What're you worried about? You're not twelve. If there was, like, a statue of a twelve-year old in there, they should be worried.

Hey, as an American whose childhood idol turned out to be a grotesque rapist, I ask, was it easier with Jimmy Savile because his death came before the revalations?

Track of the year for me so far and probably best on a disappointing album; can't stop listening to it!

Was in Saint Paul's Cathedral Choir (singing solo on one album no less), have a photo of mine on the album art of a Jean Michel Jarre album and was featured on Dutch TV clearing up dog poo in a documentary about a dog shelter in Spain!

Food: I'm not a Thai food fan but was reluctantly dragged to The Lemon Tree, it turned out very well! The food was excellent, veggie versions of all dishes available (and cheaper, which is fair and refreshing) and incredibly cheap for central London (about £6 for dinner)! Lovely service too. Drink: A nice selection of 'real' beers, if you can't decide then you can take their 3 1/3 pints of different ale offer. I'd been past this place many times but won't ignore it anymore!

Badly, badly dated in every aspect. Akin to the Overlook Hotel from The Shining, even the staff seem to come from the 60s. The box seats aren't much of an advantage, in fact the rear row of seats provide a poor view.

Pro: Surprisingly good breakfast, swimming pool is nice, having children's fun park in the hotel grounds is convenient and good fun, a nice way to end each day. Bad: Room was not ready on arrival (old wet towels, hair in bathroom, beds without sheets, no bin, ashtray on terrace full) took many requests (3/4) to fix. No WiFi for entire stay. Toilet smell when using swimming pool. Electrocution from bathroom plug located next to light switch! Often no hot water on old fashioned shower. Air conditioning often stopped working. Due to outside entertainment in park, often noisy until midnight.

It might seem a little strange to review a place like this, and to give it 5 stars, but I was seriously impressed when visiting to take my Driving Theory Test. Very well organised and the security is so tight! Tighter than any airport I've been through; lockers for all belongings, you can't take anything into the testing rooms (not even water/chewing gum) for fear of cheating. You're assigned a testing terminal in a room watched over by an employee; there's no cheating done here for sure! At the terminal you're given a hand wipe and even earplugs if the sound of other people is a distraction. I actually loved it and the sanitised, secure environment helped me focus on the test (which I passed nicely)!

Not a restaurant and as a café, has no inside seating. Just a shop.

Woo! Rock! ...in Surrey! Whilst this place might be 'authentic', serving up something those into rock/metal/whatever might like, it's hardly a nice place, but hey.. that makes it more real. The dirt is real here, yeah man. I've been here for gigs and comedy shows in their backroom and well, the entertainment could have been anyone, but I was still happy to go home on all occasions. It's pretty grimy and cramped (keep it real) but what really gets me is that this place (principally a place that serves drinks to punters) has awful bogs that stink, look like they've never been cleaned and don't have soap. It's very rock and roll and should you enjoy the idea of a sweaty, dirty night soaking up other sweat and possibly other fluids, this is the place for you! Real... but take hand sanitiser with you.
