official residence

You all fail to notice that the flag was raised over the official residence of the highest political figure in the town. I can't think of a political figure anywhere that would take kindly to the flag of an opposing nation being flown above his/her home - can you imagine this happening in india/pakistan, iraq/kuwait, palestine/israel, croatia/serbia, anywhere else you care to mention?

Paris because her level of perception is eerily similar to the previous commentators'.

HMRC pays criminal for 'tax dodger' discs

@ MarkMac

"Some people are astonishing. They live in the UK, they expect the roads to be maintained, street lights to be lit & rubbish to be collected, they send their kids to our schools, benefit from our health service and fire brigade, are protected by our police & armed forces - and they object to being asked to pay their fair share. Perhaps they should move to, say mongolia, where the tax rate is much lower because you don't have any of that stuff."

Or move to Switzerland, where taxes are lower and ALL of the above mentioned stuff runs BETTER than in the UK. My company pays 10% here - this I find acceptable.

@A.C. and @Aram

sure, with their knowledge and Aram's and my piloting skills (no-one else got Aram's joke? - good joke Aram), we can certainly mount a coup!

who was the fellow that wrote a pilot joke in the comments of the unmanned drones article recently? he's probably a pilot too. i vote for an unmanned drone takeover - programmers, pilots and hardware junkies unite.

US Constitution

why is the US Constitution, a document written hundreds of years ago by a bunch of slave owners, taken to be the fucking word of God?
