Russian hairdresser turns stickup merchant into sex slave

"Rape"

So... if he'd tied her up, plied her with Rohypnol and had sex numerous times with her, would you then remove the quotation marks from around the word "raped"?

Spain goes mad for King versus Chávez

fit for a king?

> "The use of the sentence 'Why don’t you shut up?' in ringtones is a clear breach of his image rights."

So what's in a URL? The Reg URL?

Martin Hanley

Oh for heaven's sake

Is there really any competition here? Use the .co.uk domain - it differentiates you from all the US news sites, and offers a tantalising promise of proper spelling, proper humour, and non-US-centric news. Oh, and it shows you don't have to whalesong it to a .com domain just to feel like you're playing with the big boys.

Alternatively, stick with them both. You'll no doubt be keeping both domains (ahem) registered anyway.
