Kudos to Richard Burton (when preparing to play Churchill) for being brave enough to risk the wrath of the BBC for his honesty:

"In the course of preparing myself . . . I realized afresh that I hate Churchill and all of his kind. I hate them virulently. They have stalked down the corridors of endless power all through history. . . . What man of sanity would say on hearing of the atrocities committed by the Japanese against British and Anzac prisoners of war, “We shall wipe them out, every one of them, men, women, and children. There shall not be a Japanese left on the face of the earth”? Such simple-minded cravings for revenge leave me with a horrified but reluctant awe for such single-minded and merciless ferocity."

Brexiteers: we need the EU to take our threat to walk away without a deal seriously!!!!!
EU: we hear you. Businesses, be prepared for the UK to walk away with all the nasty consequences.
Brexiteers: no, that's not what we meant. Of course there will be a transition period and a deal.

This should be in a #notagoodidea collection, really.
I need a WTF collection.

Popol Tansakul, marketing manager of Lelux Hospital which offers the service, told the BBC they had introduced vagina whitening services four months ago.

"Patients started to ask about penis whitening, and so we started the treatment a month later," he explained. The cost of the laser procedure is $650 (£480) for five sessions.

It remains to be seen, though, whether indeed there's enough Thai men wanting to have their private parts a shade whiter.

The clinic currently gets an average of 20-30 patients a month coming for vagina and penis whitening with some coming from as far afield as Myanmar, Cambodia and Hong Kong.

This is the perfect language to describe this nonsense, imho.

People across the country have been delighted by the recent news that one of the UK’s sponsored panhandlers has decided to let a wealthy, successful actress share his state benefits by marrying her at the tax payers expense.
The couple are to marry in the famous bedroom tax exempt council...
