This is the world we live in. The fire was still burning when attempts were being made to gain political capital out of this.

Disgraceful.

Re: Is this woman for real ?

Until the facts are known, it is probably wise not to speculate too much...

A previously articulate politician, who has been in parliament for a lengthy period and represented her constituency through thick and thin. You don't lose that overnight.

But you can lose it...

And, to be fair, with all the back biting and wheeling and dealing, I've grown a little tired with the goings on at ER - until Massimo departs, there is no chance of change. ...

Re: England v Wales

Well, he was on the pitch.

In the context of the offside law, 'Interfering with play' means playing or touching the ball passed or played by a teammate.

If Williams was deemed to have intentionally played the ball (he went up for a header), then Vardy was no longer offside.

It is sad when anyone dies, but if you have lived a life 'well lived', then it becomes a case that the person should be celebrated, rather than mourned.
