I sat in the park and thought how pleased I was for the five top military officers who spent £600,000 on domestic servants!

Judges in Milan have thrown out bribery charges against former Italian prime minister Silvio Berlusconi, claiming the statute of limitations has run out!

I see the legal system in Italy is just as bent as our here in Britain then!

Licence to kill: Disabled pensioner strangled by burglar freed from prison early
Source: The Mirror
Evil thug Cory Youlden brutally murdered a disabled pensioner for a pathetic haul of booze, loose change and vegetables.

Paul Cox (83) was killed by the cowardly burglar in his living room chair where he had taken to sleeping with his few possession because he had been raided so often.

Youlden, 23, had ransacked the half-blind and partially deaf man's home and helped himself to his wine before coming across the pensioner and throttling him.

The serial crook had only been freed from jail on licence four months earlier where he was serving a term for another burglary.

"I'm ashamed to say I feel like lowering myself to this yobs level, and killing those who granted his release from prison to commit this crime! They should share the guilt!"

Tigers, camels and zebras to be banned from circuses by 2015, ministers to say
Source: Telegraph
Tigers, camels, zebras and other wild animals will be banned from performing in Britain's circuses within two years, ministers will pledge on Thursday.

The number of circuses which use wild animal has dwindled to fewer than a handful in recent years.

There are now only three circuses which together keep between 35 and 50 tigers, camels, zebras and snakes.

Elephants and lions in circuses are now consigned to history.

It is likely that they will all be moved into zoos or animal sanctuaries after the ban comes into force. The ban does not include horses and ponies and other animals which are defined under law as "domesticated".

"Pity they don't pass a law banning MPs from lying, fiddling, and practising nepotism instead!"

Britain's five top military officers spend £600,000 on domestic servants
Source: The People
The five top-ranking officers in the Army, Navy and RAF cost the taxpayer almost £600,000 in servants alone, new MoD figures reveal. And that has infuriated shadow Defence minister Kevan Jones because sergeants have just had a 4.5 per cent pay cut as their London living allowance is axed.

It makes you sick!

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
