The Max Mosley verdict

Max Mosley has won his privacy case against News Group Newspapers Ltd, the publishers of the News of the World. A full PDF of the verdict is here. I am in two minds about this verdict. On the one hand, the News of the World is a scumbag newspaper full of scumbag stories, owned by […]

Bernie and Max are penpals!

I always had a little suspicion in the back of my mind that Bernie Ecclestone and Max Mosley didn’t quite see eye-to-eye as they’d have us believe. The 2005 United States Grand Prix was a case in point. Bernie Ecclestone — of course — wanted the race to go ahead in a way that would […]

Foxy Sky

FoxNews.com has had a redesign. I assume the channel itself has had a makeover aswell, but I haven’t got Sky Digital so I don’t know. But what I find interesting is that the new looks seems to be very similar in style to Sky News. Is the next step for Sky News to go more […]

BLOODY HELL

THE LIB DEMS WON. What was a “safe” Labour seat has been turned into a three-way marginal. How did that happen? Gordon Brown’s meddling perhaps. That’ll teach him to stand in Rosyth talking about job security. I hope Labour take this as the big “fuck you” that it clearly is. And this is also a […]
