'Elysium' is my favourite on this list because it is the one that at least attempts to deal with the financial crash of 2008 in a meaningful way. I also like the Edge of Tomorrow although it borrows...

You need to start thinking about how to change a political culture that can only function with absolute majorities. Scotland might be a good guide on this? Or just listening to the Lib Dems for a...

That's why I described it as a 'rainbow' rather than an official coalition. I don't expect there to be an official coalition if there is a minority Labour gov.

I'm not entirely sure how the DUP...

You might get the 'rainbow' coalition that you almost got last time - Labour, Lib Dems, SNP, DUP, SDLP, Plaid Cymru, Greens... sounds like a brilliant breath of fresh air to me. And with the Lib Dems...

I agree there is no real comparison between the two, BBi is nasty and just looking for publicity which is seems OK magazine has now given him.

Not quite the same as dealing out the kind of vile comments BBi comes out with. And there are others not unlike BBi in their tone. However, I don't think it was wise or right of John J to go looking...

If you don't see that the sing-off between Mary and Cher was deliberately introduced to save Cher for the final, you really have your head buried in the sand.

I think you both have a point here. Why do women music stars have to present themselves in this overtly sexual way? It beats me sometimes but I have watched Mary J, Leona, and Rhianna perform without...

I like the way Josie did the plug for Jam Radio. The woman is a natural DJ. Why doesn't she do some of that?
