Presumption of innocence. ?


Hi Dylan there are three men in jail for her murder with the smallest sentence being about 18 years, they have all fingered him as the paymaster for the killing, believe me there is no presumption, what I am scared is that with the usual criminal non investigation of the crime scene by the local police that his big money lawyer will manage to get him off

Can't imagine what the motives of those already convicted are..But as you say lets hope with the Pistorius trial setting a precedent it is shown live on T.V...


Hi Lubbock I read in the Sunday paper here one of the jailed killers the one who arranged everything like time, place and arranged the killers was paid R1000 it may sound a reasonable amount of money but at 18 rand to 1 pound you can see how cheap life is here the actual shooters were paid more

anyone have any thoughts on China's seemingly no comments on the situation between Russia and the Ukraine .?


Angel I was just reading last week that Russia and China were holding joint military exercises together so I would assume relations between them are pretty strong at the moment.

Similarities to the Air France plane that crashed into the Atlantic Ocean in 2009, it took the rescuers 5 days to find wreckage, although the Malaysian search is taking longer until the black box flight recorder is found we will never know what happened.


I think what is surprising to everyone is the lack of any wreckage. If the pinging info is correct the plane was on a course to nowhere. For the on board locating equipment to have been turned off would that not indicate the plane was en route to an unknown country and did not want to be recognised. But what then, what kind of calamitous event took place in the cockpit or indeed the cabin which threw the aircraft into nowhere. All speculation of course. Lets hope the submarine picks up some clue.

Mr Pistorious under ever so gentle questioning by his defense lawyer has now changed his testimony from his original statement.

There is now a light in the bedroom where there none was before.

There is a loud bang coming from the bathroom where all was silent before

He leaned over the bed and whispered to Reeva that he was going to investigate the noise whereas before he assumed she was fast asleep

He is not sure if there was one fan or two and whether they were on or off.

And that's under gentle questioning?


In the other case Dewani has been sent to a local institution for mental evaluation and should be there for the better part of a month

The usual East / West brinkmanship Angel. One of the aims of the EU's founding fathers was to bring political stability to Europe, this worthy ideal doesn't seem to working too well in trying to bring in Ukraine into the fold.

today here in Canada , Jim Flaherty , who
was our Canadian finance minister died suddenly at his home
He had just in a matter of about 3/4 weeks ago had stepped
down from that position to go into private business .
He is probably the best finance minister Canada has ever had ,
He steered this Canada though the worst global recession since the 30s
and made all the right moves to keep Canada from going under .
A wonderful man , a politician who loved and worked for his country,
he was 64yrs of age , and leaves a wife and 3 sons ? . He was a great public servant . and a great Canadian
I believe that the U.N. will speak of him tomorrow ,
May he rest in peace .

I was saddened to hear on the radio this morning of the passing of Jim Flaherty so soon after he had resigned as Finance Minister. He was in that post for 9 years and did a fairly good job. I could not agree with many of his, and his staff's decisions and could think of many Finance Ministers who were better that him, but he will be missed in the House of Commons. I was pleased to see that the opposition parties crossed the floor to offer their condolences to the Conservative party mambers.

Like most people the missing flight 370 has caught my attention and the only answer I can come up with is to compare it to the Payne Stuart flight, if you remember his private jet had an oxygen malfunction killing everyone on board and carried on flying until it ran out of fuel, the flaw in my theory though is the Transponder being switched off.
any other theories?

I knew she was stupid, but this points to insanity ! Is it genuine, though?

Seemingly not, but it says a lot about her reputation that people, including myself, believed the story.

Brazilian President Fires Intern Who Forgot to Pay Germany

Jul 09, 2014

Attached Image

Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff has fired an intern who forgot to pay off Germany before yesterday’s World Cup semi-final.

According to a report in Brasilia’s O Camapu newspaper, Rousseff intended to send a $200 million wire transfer to certain members of the German Football Association but due to a technical error at one of Brazil’s state-owned banks, the payment was never made.

Germany went on to embarrass Brazil in a 7-1 match that counts as one of the worst defeats in the history of the World Cup.

“A young man in my office was supposed to double-check that the transfer was completed,” Rousseff told reporters at a press conference in Brasilia. “Unfortunately, he did not adequately perform his duties and he is therefore no longer employed here.

“Obviously the most important part about competing in the World Cup is paying your bribes in full and on time. I take responsibility for our failure to do so and I ask the Brazilian people for forgiveness.

“I promise that if I am reelected I will hire BNP Paribas to handle all of our bribes in 2018. They’re the experts in illegal financial transactions and will help us achieve victory in Russia."

Brazil and Germany both have storied histories at the World Cup, with eight championships between them and each having been finalists seven times.



Yesterday’s match was thus supposed to be a battle of giants, with Brazil favored as the host team. Instead it became one of the most lopsided routs in sports history.

Although some blame the team’s poor performance on poor coaching and injuries, most agree that the failure to properly pay off the opposing side was the deciding factor. Included in that group is Rafael Cardoso, the former presidential intern who is now the most hated man in Brazil.

“Fixing football matches is a time-honored Brazilian tradition,” he told a local television station. “When my nation called upon me to make payments to Chile and Colombia, I proudly performed this duty.

“However, yesterday I failed my nation. And I sincerely apologize to my countrymen for screwing up this bribe. I have no excuse. And I beg for my nation’s mercy.”

Meanwhile in Rio de Janeiro many on the street are calling for Rousseff’s resignation over the affair.

“I don’t mind the stagnant economy and massive inflation,” says Mariana Santos, a nursing student. “But losing 7-1 in a World Cup semifinal is unacceptable.

“Argentina never has this problem. They know how to get things done.”
