    Initial reports suggest that the attacks have actually come from a far-right extremist rather than being religiously motivated.
    A witness who will only be identified as Lauretta told CNN her son was in a bathroom with a shooter at the McDonald's. "That's where he loaded his weapon," she said. "I hear like an alarm and boom, boom, boom... And he's still killing the children. The children were sitting to eat. They can't run." Lauretta said she heard the gunman say, "Allahu Akbar," or God is great. "I know this because I'm Muslim. I hear this and I only cry."

    Which will likely still ultimately be religiously motivated, or more accurately because Merkel was an idiot last summer

    You can't possibly look to blame Muslims for the actions of a far-right terrorist who wishes they didn't exist, if that is indeed what has happened here. It's not religiously motivated in the sense that it was done because someone believes a deity would be pleased: if anything, it's an attack against religion.

    Witness: Attacker yelled anti-foreigner slur

    Witness Luan Zequiri said he was at the scene when the shooting broke out. He tells the Germany broadcaster n-tv that he heard the attacker yell an anti-foreigner slur.

    He says he saw only one attacker, who was wearing boots and a backpack.

    He says he looked in the direction of the attacker, who shot two people on the stairs. He hid in a shop, then ran outside when the coast was clear and saw bodies of the dead and wounded on the ground.

    So conflicting reports then. We'll have to wait and see. It goes without saying that the attack is an awful atrocity either way.

    I'm blaming the idiot Merkel, not the migrants

    The translation isn't part of the quote so I think she meant to say she was absolutely sure she had heard him say that and not something else.

    Heard another good joke on Daily Politics.

    Ed Balls is releasing his memoirs in time for the Labour conference. What's the title.. Putting the boot in.

    He is chairman of his favourite football team and they have been relegated- not putting the boot in enough on the field it seems.

    Bourne. I feel as each new Bond film is realised the franchise loses its zing a bit, I don't think you particularly get that with Bourne films. Regardless, still all brilliant film franchises.

    Id agree about Bond although I never particularly liked the Bourne films.

    Bond doesn't feel like the older ones do, I think a prequel that captures the class and suaveness (is that a word?) of the Moore/Connery era would be far more worthwhile than carrying on in the same vein.

    Whilst I'm home alone for the next couple of weeks, I'm trying out different, cheaper meats to the standard. So, having burgers tonight, and gone for veal burger rather than beef. Also got turkey mince for my spag bol in a few days rather than beef mince. Tried a beef sausage yesterday rather than pork, and can't say I'll be buying those again.

    Okey dokey, they were not nice. Not quite sure why to be honest, because I do like veal normally... maybe it's actually all horse meat.. :confused:

    As far as cheap meat goes, I usually just pick up a pork shoulder joint from aldi for two or three quid and that usually lasts me about four days.

    I would be wary of turkey mince, it has a nasty habit of making things very watery.

    What percentage of it is/was veal? It may be cheaper as it's little meat and more unknown substances.
