He doesn't actually say the word. He slurs his speech to avoid saying it.

Not that different to people saying "N-word", really.

Oh look. It seems they can pay their 6bn tax bill after all!

I feel sure our fiscally responsible 'all in it together' coalition government will send out a bill to VodaFone without delay.

So everyone will be paying for it and subsidising the entertainment of an already well-catered for metropolitan population. Wow.

Completely unjustifiable.

I think Jesus would approve of the redesign because DS have ditched the "Cult" section.

Seriously, though - that's my one go-to section. Now it doesn't exist: less reason to come here.
