  • Bob Geldof Marries Jeanne Marine After Nineteen Years Together

    The Geldof family had something to smile about this weekend after 63-year-old Bob Geldof got hitched to his long-term partner Jeanne Marine. It is thought that the rocker said 'I do' in an intimate ceremony in the Rayol Canadel Sur Mer in the South of France, with the lovebirds hoping to keep their nuptials secret but Bob's eldest daughter, 32-year-old Fifi, let the cat out of the bag. Fi was seen to be getting into a panic about not having her passport in back in time for the family's trip across the English channel and then raised eyebrows when she described herself and her fiancé, Andrew Robertson, as 'wedding w*nkers' before clarifying that it wasn't them who were tying the knot.

  • Coffins arrive at Indonesian prison as executions near

    Ambulances carrying coffins arrived Tuesday at a prison island and relatives paid final visits to their condemned loved ones in a sign that Indonesia will imminently execute eight foreigners and one Indonesian man, despite an international outcry and pleas for mercy. The nine inmates, all convicted on drug charges, were given 72-hour notices over the weekend that they would be executed by a firing squad, prompting a flurry of last-minute lobbying by foreign leaders. The United Nations has argued that the inmates' crimes are not egregious enough to warrant the ultimate punishment.

  • Nurse jailed for raping patients

    A nurse who filmed himself raping two unconscious women patients in a hospital accident and emergency department has been jailed for 18 years. Andrew Hutchinson, 29, carried out the sickening attacks on the women while they were in his care at Oxford's John Radcliffe Hospital in 2011 and 2012, having drunk too much on nights out.

  • Scotland Can Run a Deficit - Here's How

    Reading about Scotland's aging population and the dramatic fall in oil prices, you can almost hear the Unionists rubbing their hands with glee. Further, given the Institute for Fiscal Studies' recent forecast that an independent Scotland would be forced to run a budget deficit of around 9% of GDP, you might be forgiven for sharing some of the Unionist scepticism. It was with these apocalyptic warnings in mind, the Scottish Labour's deputy leader, Kezia Dugdale, proclaimed that the SNP will be "signed up to massive spending cuts that would make even the Tories blush." This is quite a strong statement, but it just is not true. Perhaps the SNP would shift to the right in an independent Scotland and decide to make these supposed "massive spending cuts." But, in theory, they wouldn't have to, nor would they need to raise taxes, and nor would be forced to "borrow" the money.
