  • Mother, 27, furious at her 7-HOUR A&E wait for her son's horrific head wound pens a sarcastic thank you letter - writing from 2-year-old Jack's point-of-view

    Dear furious Mother of Jack - Next time your son is injured (or is ill), phone NHS 111.  They have advisers who assess a patient's condition and advise on appropriate treatment.  You would have been advised not to attend A&E where you only added to the chaos in an area already overflowing with patients in need of urgent treatment and buckets of sick. (your description, not mine)  NHS 111 advisers would have assessed the child's general health following a head injury then told you to take him to a Minor Injuries Unit which has resources to cope with bleeding wounds but where severely ill patients with life-threatening conditions do not arrive and take priority over patients sent there specifically for minor surgery.  Don't blame the NHS, blame thoughtless users of the excellent service, on offer free of charge, to all.  Furious mother of Jack, I hope you heed this advice before making further complaints. Kind regards, Fan of our wonderful NHS.

  • ISIS Releases Photos Of Latest Batch Of Captured US Weapons

    ditranian said:
    Over the weekend, militants linked to Islamic State released photos that purport to show weapons and equipment that belonged to American soldiers and were captured by the group in eastern Afghanistan. The photos, which came to light on Saturday, show an American portable rocket launcher, radio, grenades and other gear not commonly used by Afghan troops, as well as close up views of identification cards for a U.S. Army soldier, Specialist Ryan Larson. In an emailed statement, Brig. Gen. Charles Cleveland, the deputy chief of staff for the U.S.-led mission in Afghanistan, said the soldier had not been captured and is currently with his unit.

    Soldier - ISIS - US - Command - Kabul

    However, contrary to report that the soldier may have been captured by ISIS, the U.S. military command in Kabul denied any such suggestion, saying he "has been accounted for and remains in a duty status within his unit." American special operations troops have been fighting alongside Afghan forces in a renewed offensive against militants who claim allegiance to Islamic State in Nangarhar Province, which borders Pakistan. "SPC Larson was attached to a unit conducting a partnered (operation) with Afghan Forces," U.S. military spokesman Commander Ron Flesvig said in an emailed statement on Sunday. "The soldier's I.D. and some of the equipment were left behind after the (operation). The loss of personal identification is unfortunate."

    Clarity - US - Weapons - Website - Photos

    There was less clarity about where the supposedly US weapons came from. The website that published the photos speculated that the equipment and weapons were left behind during that engagement, but Flesvig said American officials are still trying to determine exactly when and how it was lost. The push in Nangarhar came after President Barack Obama cleared American troops to take a more active role in fighting militants in Afghanistan.

  • Photos of Kate Winslet's semi-naked husband that are banned in the UK are revealed in major US publication

    Super Update:

    Here is the long awaited descriptions of Ned Rocknroll's party pictures from the National Enquirer!

    The source that described the shocking photos of Ned Rocknroll to the National Enquirer said
    "There's nothing innocent looking about these photos."
    "They are disgusting and disturbing."
    The source saw the photos when they were uploaded to the public Facebook account of James Pope, a friend of Ned Rocknroll.
    The photos were available for over 2 years on Facebook. They were only removed after London's Sun decided to do a story about them.

    According to the source the photos are of Ned at a 21st birthday party in 2010, where Ned Rocknroll
    turned up "completely naked."

    The source goes on to say:

    “Ned’s wearing just a black military-style jacket cropped at the waist, orange Adidas sneakers and black socks, his face is covered by a black leather bondage — or gimp — mask, with holes cut out for his eyes, and he has a fake beard. Tied around his waist is a doll the size of an 18-monthold child! The ‘baby’ is wearing a hooded top and its head is stuck to Ned’s genitals as if performing a sex act! It is sick, sick, sick! Standing next to Ned in the photo is someone dressed as a priest. It’s outrageous!”

    The attorney for the couple in his letter to the National Enquirer claims it is not what it seems and provides a different story to explain the disgusting pictures.

    Bucking Bronco ride...

    The attorney claims that "Ned attended the party in “a tailcoat and a mask with horns.” At one point during the night, he said, “Mr. Rocknroll took off his boxer shorts and gave them to his wife at the time because she wanted to go on a ‘Bucking Bronco ride’ and he was concerned she would be exposed.”
    He further stated that, "another man in attendance at the party — “not Mr. Rocknroll — placed a ‘cabbage-patch doll’ he had brought with him over Mr. Rocknroll’s private parts."

    It seems that debating the depth of the debachery of the pictures is a rather moot issue, however I don't think anyone would argue why the couple would go to court to supress the story.

    ------------------------

    Update: The Daily Mail has the scan of the story and if you look closely you can see the back of the page showing through in the image. The back of the page is definitely the crossword from the National Enquirer. So the story is definitely in a copy of the National Enquirer.

    ------------------------

    I have checked the National Enquirer here in America for May 2nd, May 9th, May 16th and May 23rd and there are no stories about Ned Rocknroll (Edward Able Smith) the husband of Kate Winslet.

    The only story in any of these National Enquirer editions that even mentions Kate Winslet is one that refers to her having had a nose job in the May 16th edition.

    Perhaps it will be in the edition of the National Enquirer which will come out this Friday, which will be the May 30th edition.

    Any ideas?

    If you have any other ideas on where to check just let me know in the comments.

  • Germany Rocked by More Migrant Sex Attacks...Water Park is Forced to Segregate Men From Teen Girls

    GERMANY has been rocked by another string of migrant sex attacks amid heightened tensions over the refugee crisis.

    In Hamburg, Serbian migrants allegedly gang-raped a girl of 14 before throwing her semi-naked into the street where she nearly froze to death.

    Meanwhile, in Kiel, up to 30 Afghan men are said to have chased terrified teenage girls through a shopping mall after filming them on their phones.

    The men reportedly clashed with police when confronted, “insulting, threatening and sometimes injuring” the officers.

    The incidents come as a swimming pool in the town of Norderstedt took the radical step of segregating men and women after reports of young girls being molested by asylum seekers.

    Alexander Nicolas Kampf, 16, is also wanted by police in connection with the attack on a schoolgirl, 14, in Hamburg CEN

    In Hamburg, a girl of 14 who cannot be named for legal reasons was attacked after being invited back to the

  • Rubio downplays poor Super Saturday showings

    Presidential hopeful Marco Rubio is downplaying his perfomance in the four states that held GOP caucuses or primaries on Saturday, saying that he had had long known “this would be the roughest period of the campaign.”

    Speaking primarily in Spanish at a press conference in Puerto Rico, where voters will head to the polls on Sunday, the Florida senator noted that the contests in Kansas, Maine, Kentucky and Louisiana are proportional, saying he’ll leave them with more delegates than he started with.

    Rubio is eyeing his home state, which will vote on March 15, as the turning point for his campaign. There are 99 delegates up for grabs in that winner-take-all contest, although front-runner Donald Trump leads in the polls.
    “Here’s the bottom line,” Rubio said. “There will be more delegates awarded in Florida than basically any other state that voted tonight combined. It’s a winner-take-all state. The states that voted tonight are
