    Any indications as to why?
    Not as of yet. It's in the "Breaking News" banner on the BBC News channel, but the presenters haven't referenced it yet. My assumption is that the Lords believed five years to be too long (as do I) and objected to the 55% clause, for early dissolution.

    Weird... if you go on the Telegraph website, rather than saying The Telegraph it says "counter terrorism projects worth 1.2million scrapped as part of end to multiculturalism".

    2:56 - the German guy, for reasons unknown, pulls a funny face in an interview. Very strange of the boss of Seimens.

    I just watched the documentary "Erasing David" about how much information the government and private companies hold on you and how hard it is to avoid this.

    It's actually scary as all hell...

    If I say I own hundreds of books and then say that I only took a couple of hundred of these to uni with me does this somehow make me sound pretentious? =/

    I've said for a long time that the only driving offence we need is 'driving like a berk', to differing degrees. This is good, common sense.

    Love how George Osborne double-facepalmed after Ed Milliband tried to throw "Calm down dear" back at David Cameron.
