Knee of GraceCutting own throat
The BBC's drive for the Yoof market is shedding grown-up viewers, who are increasingly finding the range of programmes on offer uninteresting. Worse, they think news programmes are no longer impartial and there's too much focus on London. Al Jazeera is becoming a first port of call for a look at what's going on in the world.

markerTotally Ungruntled
Over two-thirds of current university graduates think life is unfair and the world is out to get them; mostly because they have been turned into lefty wonks with a sense of entitlement as big as all outdoors. Less educated contemporaries tend to have a more pragmatic view of life.

markerActual History
We hear occasional bursts about a return to the Moon in 2024. What needs to be understood is that 'We' didn't go to the Moon 50 or so years ago.
   The US government sent some astronauts there to prove to the world that their space programme was the bee's knees and when it came to the crunch, the Soviet one couldn't deliver.
   And when the US public lost interest, the trips to the Moon ended prematurely so that the money could be wasted on what turned out to be a pointless war in south-east Asia.

eyes Official: Most of the officers & staff of Police Scotland conduct themselves in line with P.S. values for fairness, respect & integrity.

The Chinese plague slump and its aftermath are expected to be worse than the Brown Slump of 2008 and its faftermath, the teenage Chancellor has warned.
