Too many off-licences are to blame for under-age drinking and hospital admissions

Police Quango spends £6.5m on lingerie, judo and Karaoke in a bid to cut spending

A quango is not  a soft drink; it is not a South American dictator, nor indeed an Amazonian reptile. It is not a colour and it is not a pretentious name for a pretentious bar. In fact, it is an acronym for quasi-autonomous non-governmental organisation and is pretty much as interesting as it sounds....

Who said Romance is dead? Man shoots himself to win back the affections of his Ex.

Whoever said romance was dead had obviously never met Jordan Cardella from Wisconsin. If they had, they would have discovered that romance is alive and well, living in northern America and shooting itself in the back with a Glock 9 in a vain attempt to win back the affections of the one it once...

Self medication is seeping through the weak fabric of society quicker than a budgie in a gas mine as an ever increasing number of imbecilic, senseless, witless – or just plain insane - medical junkies get tired of waiting and take matters into their own hands, bring out the chopping boards and get fruity...

Diamond in the cockpit. Banker with pornstar name lands David Cameron’s plane? Double standards anyone?

Footballers, politicians and bankers. Don’t you just hate them? Lying, thieving, adulterating, insidious, scheming, clandestine manipulators of the modern world. Or maybe they just get a bad press? Either way, it doesn’t help public adoration when they are seen to be above the law and recipients of special treatment that the common man would...
