06 November 2015 - 09:48 PM

Another example of who really holds their allegiance.


Tory health minister deliberately blocks law to give NHS cheap drugs when patents expire
Alistair Burt denied accusations that the parliamentary manoeuvre was 'disgraceful'
"Mr Burt deliberately used up the bill’s time by speaking at length for 27 minutes, despite heckles and jeering from Labour, SNP, and Conservative benches."

Jupiter Venus and Mars (plus earth). If further south could maybe see mercury as well.

An Article On Advanced Stats In The Rwc

Statistics can shed light on, or obscure, the truth. Here are a few insights from the Rugby World Cup pool games that I have derived for you, all of which may clarify the quarter-final match-ups.

A word of caution: these observations are based on woefully inadequate samples, are at best highly approximated team traits, and can be dependent on the quality and order of pool opponents.

Nevertheless, I found these team behaviours interesting.

The evolution of rugby has been huge and the sport has moved on from the days of baggy jerseys and static line-outs. Props nowadays are built more like body builders than just... well.... normal builders.

Jonah Lomu was regarded for being a physical specimen during his heyday, but taking a look around today there are numerous wingers who have similar if not better physical attributes than the famous Kiwi.



Government Propagandist Iain Duncan Smith's Department Fakes Quotes About New Bene...

22 August 2015 - 06:00 AM

"...The Department for Work and Pensions was forced to admit it had made up comments from supposed "benefit claimants" earlier this week.


The fake quotes appeared on leaflets that offered 'case studies' of people who had apparently been helped by the strict new benefit sanctions system introduced by Mr Duncan Smith under the Coalition Government..."





Obviously no mention of sanctions on all the Corporate benefits which is orders of magnitude larger than social.
