Tax man to take a bite of tech employees' free meals?

Thumb Down

Of course food should be taxed. It's a benefit in kind, and would certainly be liable for tax in the UK.

Wow. You can see a representation of Baby Jeebus on it. Watch eBay for more details.

Worried dad invents pepper-spray iPhone case


Shame nobody mention s it's illegal to import, own or use one in this country.

Pirate Bay founder arrested in Cambodia


Re: Sheesh

It's not rocket science. The RIAA and/or MPAA asked the Justice (sic) Department to issue a warrant for his arrest and the americans leaned on the Cambodians. Everything's for sale there, didn't you know? They have the best justice money can buy and the trade associations are big lobbyists.

UK: 'We're legally bound to arrest Mr Assange'


Embassy invasion

If the Mekon wants so badly to kiss american hindquarters he should go and settle there permanently, instead of following them in destroying international Conventions which have lasted a hell of a lot longer than he has been around. British embassies worldwide will be the losers here, along with any shreds of respect we still get from the rest of the world. All so a bunch of spiteful hippos can throw Assange in a federal supermax for the rest of his life, assuming he lives long enough to stand trial.

Brit pair deported from US for 'destroy America' tweet


Pathetic. Still, people of the United Stoats have never been known for any pretence at comedy, beyond pratfalls and other slapstick.

The country is at #16 out of 20 on the most recent OECD list and has a lot more to worry about from internal disorder than a couple of dopy Twits.

And they're so far up themselves they neither know nor care what the rest of the world thinks.

Ranting Iranian TV fined £100k for shoddy interview


Fined for shoddy interviewing? How much were Fox fined?

Mr Bean prangs £650k McLaren

Thumb Down


He doesn't deserve a car like that. It's the second time he's stuffed it into the scenery or other traffic and he should really consider a Ford Ka or something similar for next time. Only 106 of these amazing cars were built, and you'd be doing very well to buy one for £650k, particularly as a mint version went a couple of years ago for £2.5 mill.

If you can't drive it, old bean, you shouldn't have bought it. Delusions of adequacy again.

But apart from that, Mrs Lincoln...

Why don't you tell us what you really think?

One third of Russians say Sun revolves round Earth



That's true. I have a Great Aunt Wilhelmina who is the most smug person I know.

Bond 23 back on track for 2012



Pity. I'd rather Bond came to an end than continue to be played by the thug Craig.

Alcatel-Lucent pays to shut down US bribery probe


Hypocrisy in action

The Merkins are such utter hypocrites. They demand what is effectively a bribe to stop sueing Alcatel but it's OK for them to bribe Nigeria to get Cheney off the hook - and innumerable other examples. Plus they got their panties in a bunch about BAe - does anyone really believe companies like Boeing use a level playing-field?

Roll on the Apocalypse.

WikiLeaks.org resurrected in US of A


Anonymous Volestrangler

"1: The USA is fairly moderate and restrained in its dealing with other countries."

This is the same USA that has murdered millions of innocent people around the world in the past few decades, right? Thank heavens that's them being "fairly moderate and restrained" then - goodness knows what they'd do if someone gave them a national wedgie.

Compared to your other posts this is quite moderate for you. But remind me again what part of Langley you work for?

Tesla says 40% of its Roadsters may catch fire



Bloody Tesla - they know Ferrari have a virtual monopoly on exploding cars.

Cattle-burp eco menace mastered - by oregano



It's about time someone developed self-milking cows. Think of the savings!
