    Press Complaints Commission

    I think the PCC in its current form is pretty useless. For one thing newpapers can withdraw from the scheme with no consequences, as the Express and Star both did last year. Some of their decisions have been pretty pathetic. They don't even look at a lot of complaints on the basis that the person complaining was not directly affected by the article in question. They also recently declined a complaint about a Richard Littlejohn column on the basis that readers don't expect him to be factually accurate. I wouldn't be in favour of government regulation as such because a free press is essential, but we definitely need a stronger system than the one currently in place. Anyway, I'm not going to do all your research for you, but you might find these sites useful: Tabloid Watch: pcc PCC « Enemies of Reason PCC – Angry Mob

    Weekend's other games

    Just noticed Chelsea have a "Blackman" listed on the bench. Anyone know if that's actually a player's name or just John Terry's nickname for Drogba?

    Corona

    Harp is a terrible beer. Chemical tinged pisswater. Someone left a few tins of Harp in my fridge the other week. They were the only beers in the house, but I threw them in the bin and had a glass of water instead. Agree that Smithwicks is a good beer, and I do like Guinness, but it took me a couple of years of pretending to like it before I developed a taste for it. Definitely an acquired taste.

    Players contracts

    Was it Cassano? I vaguely remember something about him being banned from training after falling out with everyone at Sampdoria.

    Bobby Hundreds is an excellent username. So much so that I stole it for my xpert eleven profile. Sorry Bobby.

    Jailed for doing trolling

    The Daily Mash - Uh-oh, says everyone on internet AS a man was jailed for internet abuse, everyone with a computer has spent the last 12 hours frantically deleting as much as they possibly can. Sean Duffy was sentenced to 18 weeks in prison for being only slightly worse than you when you accuse people who disagree with you of being 'a bit like Joseph Fritzl'. Now Britain is humming with the sound of tens of millions of people sending emails to defence solicitors with the subject line: "Could we claim 'temporary insanity'?" Wayne Hayes, an IT consultant and member of 182 sites under the pseudonym 'Sheeple69' said: "What kind of world are we living in if you can't publish the details of the suicide of the mother of someone who thinks Arrested Development is better than Nurse Jackie? "When Tim Berners-Lee first switched on the internet, his homepage already had two dozen messages on it from complete strangers saying the system didn't work properly and accusing him of being a paedophile. "Virulent, baseless and anonymous internet abuse is as natural as eating, breathing or pointing and laughing at a procession of funeral cars." Human rights groups have criticised the Duffy case, saying it criminalises being an asocial fucknut and questioned whether the prison system will be able to hold absolutely everyone. Campaigner Roy Hobbs said: "If these people weren't sat at home, painstakingly mocking up Youtube videos of natural disaster sites to the sound of the Benny Hill theme tune, they'd be doing whatever you do when you're not calling for Jan Moir to be murdered." Twitter has reported that its traffic is already down by 65% following the conviction and is now just Stephen Fry being immensely proud of Hugh Laurie. Meanwhile MySpace said it welcomed any abusive messages people wish to post on its site, just so they have a reason to leave the bloody thing switched on.

    And less expensive too. If we're going to lock up everyone who acts like a cunt on the internet in these times of austerity we may have to scrap the NHS and the armed forces.

    Testicular cancer scare

    That'll be your penis Johnny, probably best you keep that. Seriously, glad to hear things went well. Those ultrasounds sure are a strange experience. Did you manage to resist the obvious "is it a girl or a boy" gag?

    kicking off in liverpool on the news now

    Yeah, plastic bullets in NI proved to be a very effective way to kill children. Water cannons, as far as I know, are only really effective for large groups of people in relatively small areas, but in any event the police in England don't have any.

    London looking like Mogadishu...

    That leaflet was doing the rounds after the student protests. They just seem to have changed the title, hence the references to demos and the absence of references to stolen goods.

    London looking like Mogadishu...

    Don't think I defended anyone. Have you tried looking for a job recently? There's absolutely nothing where I live and I suspect much of the country's the same. I have a 2:1 in Law and several years managerial experience for a financial institution, and I can't even get an interview for minimum wage jobs at the minute. Your solution is to move somewhere else?

    London looking like Mogadishu...

    There's currently one job available for every 54 jobseekers in the Haringey area. So, no, the opportunities aren't there.
