I wonder how Mr Morgan’s ambush interview of MP Mensch looks now? The guy is a turd, so much to the point he was run out of his homeland.

Very interesting story on the Murdoch/Giuliani nexus. (So it is more obvious now how the UK and USA were duped by the propaganda machine) Rather then be called a hero, perhaps there was more collusion and lies that a little digging might find on Guilliano. He may have needed a powerful ally like Murdoch.

The sleazy affairs, dumping of wives, manipulating and collusion (and possibly kickbacks at least in favours), narcissistic power plays of Guilliano sound a lot like Gingrich. (both Republican Presidential contenders at one time, which no longer surprises me)

The IMF has released a plethora of charts in their staff report on the recovery in case you missed it.

The real scandal i guess is that the Mirror was getting all this hard data and STILL managed to regularly be factually inaccurate. Fake british soldiers and fake abuse anyone?
