New Doctor Who episode leaked on to the Internet. And I haven't found it yet. Arse!

They may be unelected unrepresentative archaic remnants of an out-of-date class system that should have no right to govern this country but, on the plus side, they did humiliate the Government by voting against their plans for house arrest for anyone who looks at Charles Clarke the wrong way.

Shrubya and bLiar better not go to Turkey any time soon.

US President George Bush and British Prime Minister Tony Blair deserve life sentences, with the possibility of parole after 25 years, for the war crimes and genocide in Iraq, according to a lawyers' panel.

Although of course, this is not a Government panel, heaven knows that Turkey is one of the last places to be talking about other countries human rights records.

Here's an odd article from the Independent: It is barely six weeks since the US President delivered his second inaugural address, a paean to liberty and democracy that espoused the goal of "ending tyranny in our world". Reactions around the world ranged from alarm to amused scorn... No one imagined that events would so soon cause the President's opponents around the world to question whether he had got it right.

Get to the middle of the article however and it's plain that the change in the middle-east that some would like to credit to Mr Bush, the chance that movement might finally be made on Israeli/Palestinian peace talks, some sort of elections in Saudi Arabia and Egypt, the Syrian pullback from Beirut, is difficult to attribute to him, that it probably happened if someone else had been President.
