Do I qualify?

Manchester City Council are meeting today to discuss whether the council should give every household in God's own city £50 to help during the recession.

A great idea, and if I still lived there I'd use that money to help support local businesses....
...Joseph Holt's.....Martin's Bakery etc...

Surely The Easiest Thing In The World

Chris Brown has annoyed me greatly!

He's all over the entertainment press this morning for making a public apology about hitting Rihanna back in February. Since then most radio in the UK has stopped playing his records (no great shame there) and he's been seen, rightly so, as a bit of a thug!

Today, he's full of remorse. My favourite nugget is "as I sit here today, I can tell you that I will do everything in my power to make sure that it never happens again. "

Surely it's the easiest thing in the world to stop yourself from striking someone you love? I doubt I'm superhuman but I've managed 33 years without battering someone important in my life. I've even managed to avoid pounding somebody I dislike to a pulp.
