It still seems quite a confusing picture. Alot of his problems seem to have been left behind by his older brother's reign. But, like you say, he seems to have made some poor decisions as well. Either he suffered from terrible luck, or he "made" his own terrible luck. That said, i do think there's a likelihood that his image over time as the selfish, cowardly king was more propaganda t

Thank you Susan, I'll look for the books. Are they easy to find?

I've just been reading up a bit on King John- the "bad" king who signed the Magna Carta. A friend of mine told me that, in his opinion, the idea of him being a terrible, selfish and cowardly king was a distorted historical record (surprise surprise). So I was wondering if anyone else has read up on this subject, and what conclusions do you have? I've read interesting essays with diffe

I think the basic idea of recovering the hijackers' passports from the wreckage is bloody hilarious. Well it would be if it weren't for the fact that it's so tragic. Tragic that it happened and tragic that people accept whatever's fed to them by media and government sources.

It's a red fox with mange. I saw this report yesterday on Richard and Judy (look, i was bored so i watched the naff program). Then i saw your report above about the Chupacabra shot in Texas and it looks pretty much the same. The poor animal in Texas was most probably just a very ill fox.

Wouldn't it be terrible to know you'll die like that? So early, and so quickly without rhyme or reason. But then, most deaths could be seen in that light. Being able to see the future would be such a curse. Apart from the small advantage of being able to sort out some important things before you go. Like burying your porn collection... ;-)

I don't really believe in the story of Adam and Eve as fact (not saying that you do or don't, by the way). I think that maybe it's just a part of our ancestors' explanation for how this world was created and how life came to exist life upon it. Or maybe it has something to do with a "fall of mankind" when a previous, lost civilization of man became corrupted and imploded on itself. So

If we all lived by the ideals of loving each other as we do ourselves, etc, then the World would have no war, very little or no famine and disease would have less of a hold over us. That could be a prize that we could achieve in this world by living without allowing hatred and greed and other unpleasant emotions to take control of our lives. Whether or not we would be rewarded in the afterlife

Isn't the point more to draw out a set of spiritual and moral rules to live by? Especially the New Testament.

Who says the antichrist has to be intelligent? If he is the opposite of Christ in his approach to mankind, then maybe he's the opposite in terms of intelligence...

It's interesting to note that he had the desire to play a cello from such an early age and even knew what a cello was. His mother expressed her amazement that he knew what one was and she was probably with him nearly all the time for the first three years of his life. So, from an extremely early age, it seems he had a real desire to play and compose for classical music with classical instrument

Yes, no worries. It's quite a stretch to take something like that personally. So i think he best method is to laugh. A great deal.

The world has always been killing each other in one way or another. But ignoring important environmental issues is not excusable. Is western society that tied up that it can't focus on more than one issue at once? That said, i think Gore is not the best figurehead for the argument.

It smacks more of orchestration by the administration and people around it to me. If it were to be done by terrorists, there would be too many ways in which it could go wrong.

Im not sure Bush and Blair are the root of the problem. I think whoever would be in charge, this would be happening. The momentum for this is coming from behind the scenes. Such as those "shady characters" that Dr. Kelly mentioned before he was found dead.

Once you have some idea about the motives behind the Iraq war and the other plans for the Middle East, you can see the news reports for what they are. So much of it is disinformation. You have to be very careful what you allow yourself to believe, don't you? It's tough. There's so much of it as well. A friend of mine who works for the Times said to me "we often feel like we're the last peo

I know they aren't the most beloved of creatures, but i noticed last summer that there were hardly any wasps in my mum's garden. Usually, what with her having 3 apple trees, there are thousands of the little stingy buggers nibbling away at the fallen apples and getting all fat. Last year, i hardly saw any. Quite a few flies on the apples, but no wasps. Now that's very odd. And not good for the g

The thing that worries me most is your personal details in a national database. All computers and computer programs can be hacked eventually. There's no such thing as a completely safe system. And, most importantly, can you trust those in charge?

The whole thing's a bloody joke. How can having us all on a computer help against terrorism? There's no common sense to that argument at all. Not that im bothered about terrorism anyway. The biggest problem our society faces is this flood of restrictive legislation and the direction we're being pushed. Do they want a revolution? At least they could try and give us better excuses for reducing our

That's what i was considering. But im unsure it would be driven by Blair and Bush. I suspect that Blair and Bush are just the tip of the iceberg. I think whoever was in power in the US and UK would have done this, and they are just figureheads for a deeper lying organisation. No pun intended. Do you remember Doctor Kelly's comment on shady figures in the background with thie own agenda before he

Hi Priority Red, Do you think this series of events comes from a desire to move into an "end game" or do you think it's simply an oil issue alone. I can see the strategic importance of securing a vital resource like oil. But i think there may well be more behind all of this.

Thanks for that and the quote you gave. I have no access to sound on this computer, unfortunately. I travel to and from London a great deal these days. I went not long after the bombings and was amazed at the lack of security. Not because i was worried there'd be more trouble. But because i thought the government would be making more of an effort to look like it was doing something- especially
