Rooney apologises for diving, no word from C-Ron.

Posted: 26 Nov 2008 08:57 AM CST

For some reason Wayne Rooney is in the news for apologising for diving against Villarreal in the Champions League in a rather poor attempt to win a penalty. It’s not that British players can’t dive, in fact Wayne’s mate Stevie G is well known for hurling himself about with much fanfare. But if one United player was going to apologise for ’simulation’ then, well, we figured it’d be you-know-who.

Comments from Fergie below, and we love the dig at Pires.

Sir Alex Ferguson told The Sun: "It is uncharacteristic of Wayne. He thought he was going to be tackled and made the most of it. But he has seen it again and apologized to me."

The United boss said: "You don't usually see it from him (Rooney). Maybe he had been watching Robert Pires too much. At least he said sorry. You would not hear Pires saying that, bloody hell!"

Stringfellow - Lapdancing is not sexually stimulating

Peter Stringfellow discussing lapdancing in the House of Commons

Peter Stringfellow, the man behind Stringfellows ‘gentleman’s clubs’ was joined in the House of Commons by a bizarre mixture of strippers, club owners, anti-lap-dancing-club campaigners and MPs.

Appearing at the Commons Culture Committee he flew in from Spain especially to debate plans to licence lap-dancing joints.

Strip joints are ranked along the same lines as pubs and clubs, however, some boring people lobby groups want them licensed in the same way as sex shops - something Stringfellow isn’t too happy about.

Stringfellow insisted that his nightclubs did not offer ’sexual encounters’ and were no more stimulating than pictures of David Beckham in his underwear. .

The chairman of the Lap Dancing Association, Simon Warr (owner of Spearmint Rhino - lapdancing super-clubs) followed up  ‘People go for the alcohol and the entertainment - so, the entertainment is nude. But it is not sexually stimulating,’ he informed the committee..

What do you think, are lapdancing clubs not sexually stimulating?

Aled Jones joins Terry Wogan in Christmas Chart Assault

Chart sensation Aled Jones is to sing a duet with Terry Wogan - ‘Britain’s best loved breakfast DJ on Radio 2′ (after, err, Aled Jones Sunday Breakfast Show) - of the Christmas classic “Little Drummer Boy.” Originally made famous by Bing Crosby and David Bowie in the 70’s, the reworked Yuletide number will be released on the 8th of December.

Jones of course was made famous as the singer of “Walking In The Air” which reached number 5 in the charts; 16 places higher than Sir Terry’s attempt with “The Floral Dance” which peaked at number 21.


Terry Wogan on Top of the Pops

Perhaps this is a late entry into the BBC’s Eurovision selection programme “Your Country Needs You?” No matter what it is, the profits from the release will all go to Children in Need.

Hat tip to the BBC.

‘Fit Notes’ to replace sick notes

Posted: 26 Nov 2008 03:01 AM CST


The practice of using sick notes to keep people off from work are to be scrapped.

Ministers announced that the new ‘Fit Notes’ system will seperate the truly ill from those who are work-shy. Currently, the number of people claiming long-term sickness benefits are at 2.6 million. The measure aims to cut this figure to 1.6 million by 2015.

The electronic fit notes will list what a person can do rather than just give them time off work.

"We believe a Fit for Work service to help people back into employment may be the right way forward," said Paul Nicholson, the chairman of the BMA's occupational medicine committee.

How To Beat The Haka

Posted: 26 Nov 2008 02:44 AM CST


Wales played against New Zealand on Saturday and this time, they wanted to accept the challenge..

Rugby is a hard sport, mind-games play a key part in success and failure the game in front of 74 067 people at Millennium Stadium in Cardiff on Saturday proved just that.

The All Blacks produced a stirring rendition of the Haka and the Welsh team lined up on their 10m mark, linked arms and locked their eyes in a collective stare, when the Kiwi’s finished with the throat-slitting gesture, the Welsh didn’t move an inch they just stood there staring … and staring and staring. With the All Blacks seemingly unsure of what to do..

After a pause that lasted for over a minute, the teams finally - disassembled as the crowd roared. The Kiwi’s beat Wales 29-9 and will be at Twickenham on Saturday, will the English team be as focussed?

Shakespeare is losing favour in schools

Posted: 26 Nov 2008 02:23 AM CST


Half of teachers have dropped out of training courses with the Royal Shakespeare Company (RSC) since ministers abolished the national curriculum tests last month.

Jacqui O’Hanlon, the RSC’s director of education, said: “School managers will not release teachers for a day’s training because Shakespeare is no longer seen as a priority. If that’s the message being given to teachers and the message pervading schools, what impact is that going to have on the wider entitlement young people have to engage with Shakespeare?”

Barry Sheerman MP said: “It’s quite chilling if schools don’t want students to go and see Shakespeare if it’s not examined.” He compaired Government edicts on the curriculum to “Soviet Russia” and teachers were “too frightened” to complain in case they weren’t promoted.

“Most teachers are terrified to go to bed at night without reading the latest missive. The government controls the curriculum even if it’s by manipulation, not direction.”

Drinking Banned Completely for Young Drivers

Posted: 26 Nov 2008 02:01 AM CST


The Government’s chief advisors on drugs proposed that young drivers would be banned from drinking alcohol completely before getting behind the wheel.

The move follows a review by an the Advisory Council on the Misuse of Drugs(ACMD). It was revealed there were 1,080 drink-driving accidents involving teenage drivers in 2005, while 88 people were killed in accidents where drivers between the ages of 17 and 20 were over the drink-drive limit.

Group chairman and council member Caroline Healy, said: “We feel that young people under the age of 21 should have a zero rate for alcohol if they are driving.

“By their nature, they are inexperienced drivers and not able to tolerate alcohol, and the combination of the two is dangerous.”

Review: Harry Hill’s TV Burp

Posted: 26 Nov 2008 12:00 AM CST


The many laughs of Harry Hill.

If it wasn’t for TV Burp I would never have known that Madge from Neighbours has moved to Emmerdale; that gorillas rolled down hills; and that tea cosies with legs stalk the set of Coronation Street. Yes, take the weeks TV, mix a little of crackpot comedian Harry Hill, and you have one of those fun filled for all the family half hours that UK Saturday night telly can be proud of.

Both TV Burp and Harry Hill himself have taken time to find the right approach to worm their way into the public consciousness. Originally airing late at night, he and ITV have finally worked out that the clean show, which is riotously funny, is the perfect opener for their Saturday line up.

It’s well scripted, and it suits the nature of Hill’s comedy of calling back to previous jokes and weaving a rich tapestry of material from very small observations. Plus when Gail says she looks like an Emu on Corrie, you know that Harry is going to channel Rod Hull and reduce every living room in the UK to a giggling hysterical wreck.

Harry Hill’s TV Burp, ITV, Saturday around Six Thirty.

Cipriani Dropped against Kiwi’s

Posted: 25 Nov 2008 09:55 AM CST

Danny Cipriani has been dropped by Martin Johnson for this weekend’s game

Danny Cipriani has been kicked in touch by Martin Johnson in light of last weeks dismal performance against South Africa at Twickenham. He’ll be replaced by Toby Flood.  Flanker Tom Rees has been dropped to the bench with Michael Lipman to start on the open-side while Nick Kennedy returns to the second row in place of Tom Palmer.

Johnson said, “We are picking the team for this game we think has the best chance of winning.

“Danny is on the bench and is still involved.  All these games are a squad effort. He has a role to play this week, just not a starting role.  Danny has got a long future in the international game but so has Toby Flood — there are plenty of good players to choose from.

“Other options, other players.

“He wanted to play, he was disappointed but understands there are only 15 who can start and seven on the bench.  He’s in the 22 and will have a role to play on Saturday.”
