I really don't know if I liked that episode or hated it so I'm going with the "it was alright" statement. The first part was dull but as the episode went on it did draw me in a lot more and the end...

It was a bizarre decision. He's supposed to be a Portugese descendant (or thereabouts) so his accent in Prince Caspian was fine enough. I understood the decision to make him a bit older than in the...

And public sympathy would help how? Modern Governments only seem to listen to the public when they want their votes, for the rest of the time they blissfully ignore the public. Manifesto promises are...

You do realise that OU isn't free right? In fact it costs the same, or in some cases more per year than a regular university costs. I'm an OU student which I pay for myself and it costs a small...

They listen but they normally vote the way the party whips tell them to vote. It's no wonder that there's a high level of political apathy in the country. MPs ignore you except during elections, they...

Mr Gandhi lived in a different age I'm afraid. 1.5 million people marched against the Iraq invasion and it was ignored. If every since student in the UK marched in protest of the fee rises then it...

I have to disagree. I'm living in Birmingham at the moment and I doubt many would share your opinion that's it's fabulous due to multiculturalism.

Fergie does what's best for United not for England and Foster isn't (currently) as good as Van De Sar. It's the same problem Joe Hart has at City. Both Hart and Foster are good English Goalkeepers...

There's something really nice about the Twilight Zone. It's gentle pace allows for good storytelling, something that I rarely see on TV in 2010.
