Phones4U, a chain of mobile phone shops built and previously run by known scumbag John Caudwell has gone bang. No shits given unless you work there. Curiously his Wikipedia page mentions nothing of his shady style of business or various indiscretions. It's obviously paranoia that would make me suspect this billionaire has paid someone to keep his image clean.
The three main political parties are doing their best to convince Scotland to go independent. I had assumed that this was a foregone "No" conclusion but they really are pulling out all the stops to piss everyone off. If I had to put money on it right now, I'd guess Yes by a small margin. This should be over in a few days and it's good to know that whatever happens, it's likely to be fucking grim. I can't take SNP clowns any more seriously than other clowns so the real questions should be more about what's going to fuck up first. It's actually quite painful in some ways as the criticisms levelled at Westminister (for instance - Private finance initiatives - Basically a huge con, fucking joke and have been used to funnel government cash to friendly corporations for years. Looking at you, Capita.) are dead on. Unfortunately the proposed fixes are either non-existent or open to at least as many issues.
My best suggestion would be to shove the most vicious members of the SNP and EDL into a pub car park and let that decide it. It's a little more honest than what's currently happening.
There's also the usual batch of child abuse scandals and revelations so it's just another great day in the UK.
