World News

I love watching the news and since 9/11 I've always thought it was important to know what's going on so I made a topic to discuss it in weeee!!!

17 suicides in one year in Bridgeend (which I think is in South Wales) and police say they aren't linked!!!?

Castro quit!? I don't really know about him or his 'reign' but it's a good thing Happy

I read a couple of stories about the high number of suicides, I think people were tring to blame the internet.

They blamed it on the media for 'glamourising it' which is ridiculous they just reported it for a change instead of writing rubbish, apparently there is a site they can go on to arrange their own funerals.

yeah but Castro's brother is going to take over, so maybe nothing will change

we had a mini-debate about it in Humanities (history & social studies)

Send Prince Harry back!

I'm old fashioned, to the MAX and I think that if our monarchy gets to live off Britain's taxes and whatnot then they should damn well do a job for them. I don't care what that job is, just so long as it's not cutting ribbons, shaking people's hands and giving awards to people like Bruce Forsyth.
I was well happy when I found out Harry wanted to go to Iraq, proper old school! That's where the king and his soldiers belong, fighting for their country. All the half decent kings and queens from the past did, what's changed? I also happen to believe that warmonger Bush and Blair ought to have gone too.

I've said it since they kept reporting it first time round and I say it now and I'll say it again, if they're worried for his life and the other troops then don't report it! Don't tell anyone! Stupid Americans reporting it, no one even knew. It must piss him off so much, he wanted to go there to do what he was trained for, his life is of the same value as all the other troops yet he's had more press coverage for being there then soldiers that have died out there.
