    At any time this is an utterly deplorable act, but the fact that this happened hours after a professional footballer was literally brought back to life with one of these pieces of kit in front of millions of us around the world just adds to how shocking this act truly is.

    Mindless vandalism is one thing, to pick out a piece of equipment that saves lives - there are no words to describe these people

    No doubt he'll get a £100 fine and a suspended sentence.

    Tried watching it twice, both times the sound was out of sync with the pictures, and the newsdesk seems to have 80's pub lights above it?

    Why do so many people in the UK want to become America? I mean, seriously, why this Fox-esque channel?

    To bring you the facts as we see them, not as objective and/or impartial people see them.

    I've not switched it on once but judging by social media it's blighted by technical problems, the set looks like something from the 80s Soviet Union, there is literally no news on it, their promise of bringing fact based news has already been replaced by Dan Wootton spending 3 hours a day banging on with his own conspiracy theories and their presenters are that stupid that they've read out emails from Mike Hunt and Mike Oxlong

    Oh and I noticed a few companies withdrawing advertising from the channel yesterday as well - but other than all that, it's been a pretty good start.

    They should probably add a new proofreader too :laugh:

    I’d ask @Mowgli if he’s enjoying it, but asking for his opinion would probably make me a fat attention seeking c*nt or something.

    From actually being classed as a journalist at the BBC to this for McCoy.....and it's only day 3

    From absolute confusion:



    To telling her to basically shut the **** up:



    To having to beg people to stop sending messages in under joke names:



    Been a good day for a once reasonably well respected journo

    Even the Beeb can be guilty of this too.

    Amazon destroying 130,000 items a week (from one distribution centre), including brand new laptops, TVs, electric razors etc. etc. etc.

    There's been a spike in media reports of a massive upcoming recession in the US.

    That's hardly an exclusive, I could have told them that last year, and they could have saved themselves a lot of time and money. Any truck that came in with a refugee found in the back meant every item inside was to be destroyed, and the whole thing re-ordered. It's amazing that despite the amount of waste that exists in Amazon, it's still a monster of a money making machine.

    To be honest, there's nothing in that video that you wouldn't find at other warehouses/factories either in terms of there being excess/needless waste. What do you people expect to happen living in a capitalistic society,

    Do you have any evidence of this, because it sounds ridiculous?
