007 Warhead screenplay sold for £46K


robot sharks

Regardless of laser beams or not it still sounds as if the script makes more sense than the plot (and I use the term loosely) of Quantum of Solace

BBC relives The Day of The Triffids


"fast-paced, futuristic and electrifying take"

if that simple phrase doesn't fill you with dread I don't know what will

So after condensing it down to a 2 parter it's mainly going to be filled with different angle shots of people running around cut in a manner designed to confuse and bore the hell out of people

As for new fans...ummmm it's a 2 parter not a series so that doesn't make sense unless really it's a pilot for a new series based on the day of the triffids.

Also just wondering why BBC Wales if it's going to be shot somewhere else, surely more efficent to use the local BBC there

The Pope predicted economic Armageddon back in 1985



Isn't it amazing that we have a separate classification for 'business ethics', they even teach classes in it.

Something is either ethical or it isn't, making something ethical because 'it's the business doing it not me' is the sort of rank hypocrisy to cover outright greed that gets us into trouble everytime. Ranks along with only following orders as an excuse.

BNP leaked list claims first victims


other parties

So what does this mean for members of other nationalist parties such as SNP, Plaid Cymru etc.

and why stop at parties what about organisations that campaign on issues trying to affect government policy?

The trouble with free speech is it's a slippery slope and the biggest pitfall is the 'but they deserve it'

so if data is stolen from a prison system is it alright if only the prisoners info is leaked or is it worse if it's the guards info? what if it's both?

Lehman Excel snafu could cost Barclays dear

Thumb Down


So Barclays, part of the cash starved UK and world banking system which is desperately in need of taxpayer capital injections can afford to pay $1.35 billion?

Where's the money coming from I wonder, I'd hope not taxpayers funds.

It also makes me wonder whats going to happen with the HBOS and Lloyds TSB deals given both banks have apparently asked for a share in the capital funding available.

It's one thing to bail out these dimwits for the sake of the whole economy, but letting them profit off of the situation means that the sort of mentality that got us into this mess is still in charge. Certainly they don't seem to have taken any lessons on board about controls and risk management.
