Why The BMW 3 Series Coupe Is Hot Property

Alex Nekrassov writes: You might as well know it: I am the proud owner of a BMW 330i coupe, black colour, slightly tinted windows. I am the dude. I rule the roads. It looks sleek, it is fast and it is everything that you ever want to have in a car.The main difference between a BMW and most other cars is that when you climb inside the Bavarian-built vehicle you feel as one with the car. Beside the fact that the 3 series coupe, complemented by the Motorsport body kit upgrade (a highly recommended addition, giving the car a much more dynamic and sporty looking body) BMW has prided itself on building its cars with the driver very much at the forefront of all its considerations. The 330i coupe in particular combines all the strides in technology you would expect from a premium cruiser, but the engine...

Moving Out Of Britain: A Russian’s Take On Life In The UK

A wealthy Russian friend of mine has told me recently that he is planning to move out of Britain and settle in some other country in Europe. When I asked him why he said that Britain has lost a lot of its ‘sparkle’ in the last ten years. ‘There’s no more value for money here,’ he said, grumpily. ‘Everything costs way too much. And the service has become abysmal, with half of the people not understanding a word of English. Doing business here is difficult nowadays because of all the red tape and the hidden taxes. And I simply cannot drive in London anymore! All those weird people in their four-by-fours who are terrified of their own cars and the crazy bus drivers and whackos in white vans are just driving me nuts! Not to mention that the whole city is dug up all the time.’ I looked...

Naomi Campbell Plays The Race Card. What A Disgrace!

Adam Lovejoy writes: That irritating woman, Naomi Campbell, has come up with allegations that advertisers refuse to use non-white models in their campaigns. She said recently: ‘I don’t see any black woman, or of any other race, in big advertising campaigns.’ Remarkable, asbsolutelly remarkable. To get more work Campbell is prepared to stir racial tension. How low is that? This is the woman who had claimed that she was ‘racially abused’ by British Airways staff during an incident at Heathrow airport in April last year when she went berserk on board a BA airliner due to depart for Los Angeles. Campbell had lost lost it completely when she was told that one of her bags went missing in all the confusion at the new Terminal 5. She started abusing the cabin crew and...

China Forming A ‘Common Market’ In South East Asia

Martin McCauley writes: During the 1990s the rise of the Chinese military led to talk about a ‘Chinese military threat’. On the other hand, its economic rise in the 21st century has been observed with equanimity.This is remarkable, given that China’s military budget has been growing annually by over 10 per cent. The relaxed reaction to China’s economic rise now permits Beijing to advance its diplomatic interests almost imperceptibly. This is most evident in South East Asia. The Association of South East Asian Nations (ASEAN) was formed in 1967, as a response to the ‘China threat’. Beijing supported communist insurgencies in several states and they all had a collective interest in resisting the rise of China. In fact, ASEAN did not normalise relations with China until...

Global Warming: It’s A Myth

Martin McCauley writes: Where has our summer gone? Last August in Britain was the wettest on record. And the winter of 2007 had proven to be the coldest in North America for the last 30 years. So why is there still all this talk about global warming which is supposed to put our planet in mortal danger? The facts would suggest the exact opposite. I know it is politically incorrect to challenge the established view, promoted by our politicians and many scientists, that global warming exists. However, a good scientist is aware that knowledge always evolves: today’s wisdom becomes tomorrow’s nonsense. And as for politicians, they have an uncanny ability to get things wrong. Why, you may ask, do I reject the concept of global warming or anthropomorphic climate change? There is simply...

The Fall Of An Empire. In 2009 AD

Thomas Mathew writes: Now we know for sure that the finance ministers and central bank governors of the G20 group of the world’s wealthiest nations do absolutely nothing. For so many years we have been hearing Brussels boast about how good it was at tackling economic problems. So much so that it has demanded absolute political powers for itself to implement its brilliant economic policies. But when recession came, the EU leadership took a back seat, watching member countries fail to agree on anything and insisting that the idea of European unity does not apply to times when their economies are collapsing. The poorer EU states are now learning the hard way that big players, such as Germany and France, have no desire to bail them out of their current difficulties, while Britain has chosen...

Pearls Of Wisdom. From The Stirring Trouble Team.

Today we present more pearls of wisdom from the Stirring Trouble team. It is quite amazing that these otherwise unremarkable people, recovering alcoholics and sex addicts, come up with such brilliant stuff.Thrusting your hips is called ‘dancing’ in New York. In Moscow it is called ‘sexual intercourse’. It’s official: it is easier to buy drugs on Oxford Street in London than find a bottle of decent wine or Scotch. Come to think of it, there is nothing more disappointing than a woman who is plain. Especially if she is attractive and plain. Then it is even worse. The most annoying thing about women on mobiles is when they go through the check-outs at the supermarkets and continue talking non-stop. There are disturbingly high numbers of people on twitter who say they...

Angry Rants Of A Londoner: The Mayor Is Hopeless

Adam Lovejoy writes: Pardon me for asking, but what the hell has the mayor of London, Boris Johnson, actually done for our once great city, since he was elected last year? What is it exactly that he has changed in the British capital that made it a better place to live in? Words, words, words, said the Bard once, and this is what exactly we got, and are still getting, from Mr Johnson: plenty of words, and sometimes hints but not much action. I will do this and I will do that. And may be I will not even stand for the second term – wink, wink – because I might be tempted to do something different, like becoming Prime Minister. That man, Johnson, had the nerve to tell us that he could use his position as a Mayor of London to stage a bid for the leadership of the Conservative party....

A Paedophile Gets Free Viagra! It’s Total Madness

Sometimes you read about something in the newspapers and wonder: has the world gone absolutely mad or what? It was revealed recently that a paedophile was receiving Viagra on the NHS even though he had a string of convictions for abusing children. And did anyone do anything about it? No, no one did a thing. It was his human right, you see, to get free viagra. Bizarre, absolutely bizarre. Some time ago there was another strange incident: a pedophile walked free from Oxford Crown Court because the judge at his trial went along with his ridiculous claim that he had become a paedophile… under the influence of medication that he was taking. Yes, former head teacher of a primary school, Philip Carmichael, who had downloaded 8,000 indecent images of children on his computer, was unconditionally...
