  1. No, none of that is reported on the main BBC news (which is what everyone watches) It's very rare to get any world news that doesn't involve the USA, occasionally Russia or some propaganda piece about Syrian chemical attacks or such nonsense. The 24hr BBC news channel will have specific programming for world news etc but that's a limited audience.
  2. Well this evening's main National BBC news was, literally - 1. Tough talking Theresa May arrives at Brexit Summit (go Treeza!) 2. Commuter chaos in London as a train breaks down (yes this is national UK news) 3. Scandal as some Just Eat restaurants get a zero rating for hygiene ( fascinating) 4. Rich guy pulls out of buying Wembley Stadium (haud me back) 5. England cricket scores (my life is complete) So, no, BBC World Service, the remit of which is to provide news to those outwith the UK rather than in it, doesn't really compare. But watch any debate from the House of Commons and that's the whole essence of the place. Braying and shouting and insulting each other like it's a school playground, coupled with ancient and antiquated customs that no one is in any hurry to reform. The Tories have it in for the Speaker as he's quite tough on them and sympathetic to backbenchers, so this 'complaint' which is disguised as being about general standards of propriety but is in fact about him himself, is really just a fudge to get rid of him and get him replaced.
  3. Well by creating a culture denigrating people who have an interest in politics, it's a good way to put people off becoming informed, asking questions etc. I've noticed a huge swell of interest in politics in the last 5 years or so with the independence referendum, Brexit, and this current UK govt laying waste to the most vulnerable in society in a way not seen for decades. Of course it would suit them (and their media lackeys) to feed us a diet of royal weddings and royal babies and all that shit. Those who fall for it are just plain ignorant.
  4. Except Corbyn has NO plan on Brexit either and continues to slide in the polls. Quite an achievement when we're currently living through the most inept and shambolic govt. in living memory.
  5. I saw on the news about them touring Australia with the usual oddballs dribbling over them. What I didn't see was reporting of the polls showing that the majority of Aussies would like to become a republic and aren't interested in these parasites. Same old establishment agenda on the "news".
  6. Well, what's a little death or disappearance here and there when you're making $£ billions selling arms and bombs to this abominable regime? It's morally bankrupt and no one cares.

    New Album Means New Tour

    Yes that's the thing about general admission DEAR, no seats for the elderly and infirm! As demonstrated by that cute gif of you and Suedehead at the RHT! 🙈
  8. Well maybe it's about time they stopped USING Madonna's name every year to get publicity for this ever-decreasing shit-fest(ival) before the inevitable denials come in.
  9. You're right, I don't, but if Fuckville, Nowhereland can build a stage for their local blugrass music festival, then Rio can build a stage for a concert I would have thought.... and if they couldn't do it through traditional channels, then they could do it through corrupt channels. Voila!
  10. Ok, well, to say she has other commitments or something would be a nice way to say it. To deliberately price yourself out of something that the Stones, Zeppelin (and all the other legends who usually charge on par with Madonna) routinely do, singles her out as diva-ish and the antithesis of what Glasto is meant to be about. This is only a rumour anyway. If a major star approaches a city with the offer of a free show and all the economic benefits it would bring then I'm fairly confident the council or city representatives would go into overdrive to pull strings, ask favours or get the money together to do something as rudimentary as build a stage. It's Rio, it's not Ethiopia, so I'd hazard a guess that there was something else going on there, not least of which Madonna agreeing to do anything for free (that's not charity based) being extremely unusual.

    Kanye West

    That explains it then. Get back on yer meds Kanye! You're still a prick though...
  12. The nice way to say you don't want to do it is to.... say you don't want to do it. If the reason given is money, then that's the reason I'll take. And I absolutely do believe it looking at Madonna's track record. As for Rio not having the money to erect a stage? Don't believe it for a minute.
  13. True. Someone like McCartney (who's also rolling in money) knows that festivals and such are a trade off. The exposure is the main payment. It always seems to come back to short term financial gain for Madge these days. Perplexing indeed.
  14. The owner of efestivals said Madonna headlining isn't happening and didn't even reach negotiation stage because her fee is too high. The washed up slot will probably be Cher or Kelly Minogue.
