Who’s a Naughty Boy Then ?

by duncanr

naughty babyhis defence team claim he’s innocent – that there is no way he could have murdered 4 men, planned 8 more murders, vandalised property, and threatened police officers, all before he was toilet-trained – [well they would say that, wouldn’t they ?]

Dirty Tits Give Kids the Shits

by duncanr

hisham qandilEgypt’s Prime Minister Hisham Qandil is in a bit of bother after claiming that women who do not clean their breasts before feeding their babies are responsible for the diarrhoea epidemic in rural Egypt – http://tinyurl.com/curmpep

Lack of clean water for bathing or drinking is a major problem in many parts of the world and while Hisham Qandil may be right to highlight one disease transmission route, he will win no prizes for tact or diplomacy (amongst women, at least)!

P.S. if you want to help more folk around the world gain access to clean water, visit – http://www.wateraid.org/uk/

Egypt : Out with the Old, in with the New

I don’t want to have all the powers. But if I see my nation in danger, I will do and I will act. I must.”

Funny how dictators seldom seek power for themselves, innit? They’re always selflessly doing it reluctantly for the greater good of the nation

Sadly, a lot of Egyptians – those not supporters of the Muslim Brotherhood – aren’t showing the proper appreciation of the personal sacrifice Morsi is making in abrogating to himself more power than any Egyptian leader since the Pharoahs – ungrateful b*stards !
