Pete mcQuail
Alien

Oh dear

the Clangers lived on a small blue planet and not the moon.

The real concern is the ejected blue cheese which could cause major disruption to global transport systems and severe confusion in the fromage producing regions of northern France

Please do pay attention at the back.

flying killer drones operating overseas by remote control

Why not just let the ordinary X-Box players do the dirty work - a highly skilled self motivated workforce like that would save a fortune in training.

Home Secretary in ID card gaffe

Pete mcQuail
Unhappy

Castro is gone but ...

"The Home Secretary's interview with Today can be found here. Smith's interview starts about the 12:00 minute mark and her comment on database security for the National ID Cards project can be found after the 18:20 mark."

New Labour is obviously in serious contention with a 6 hour 20 minute plus interview.

For sale...

'and he has sold this corporate data, including information on weapons systems, to about 250 buyers through the internet.'

That's the real joy of the 'Buy it now' button on eBay. Much easier (but less fun) than the old smokey bars and turned up collars.
