Libya: British forces evacuate 150 in RAF desert rescue mission

RAF Hercules planes land in Malta after successful rescue mission to save 150 civilians from the Libyan desert south of Benghazi.

See we can still do it !!! Better to make an announcement after the event rather than before.

What grabbed my attention was the last few posts which were not contributing anything to the topic so I deleted them. Before you shout about censorship take a deep breath and consider whether you want to repost them or use the PM service for a private dispute. If you do repost I shall leave them up for other people to judge. We are coming up on our seventh year of OG, I'd like to see another seven at least.

What attracted my attention? ...... The word bested which I read in a bigpondnews.com article ...... Anyone else heard of it and in what context?

The edit is to link the article.

Gearce, its a fairly common expression among younger people. Another similar one is beasted - when you have bettered or beaten someone. Nolic

The Observer mentioned today that Tony Blair  had "been keeping the Government informed" about his recent telephone conversations with Col. Gadaffi's son. There is also a Mandelson connection , and one to Royalty , not to mention the London School of Economics.......

Watch out for some fast and fancy footwork in high places !.....

Never heard the word until I read it ...... Don't think I'd use it ...... Just doesn't sound right to me.

I notice that there are a lot of 'good news stories' about sectors of the economy that are doing well. The bear in the room is being ignored as spot prices for oil rise due to instability in the Middle East. It's not long ago that a price of $100 a barrel was regarded with horror. Some analysts are now saying that $200 a barrel is not impossible. All eyes in the futures market are on Yemen and Algeria.

I've long been a believer that it is the 'events dear boy' that trigger the disruptive shocks to the systems of governance. If you have a situation where there are structural instabilities you are by definition balanced on a knife edge. The UK is in this position at the moment due to bad decisions over the last 50 years, nobody can arrgue that this isn't a huge structural fault. There is no certainty that the policies being implemented by the ConDem administration are anything better than a gamble based on out-dated economic principles. I keep banging on about the danger of an external shock, the surprise realignments in the Middle East and their effect on energy prices is bad news no matter which side of the debate you are on. We are teetering on a knife edge. I see no reason to be cheerful or to keep quiet at the moment.

What attracted my attention today is that a judge has decided not to allow a Christian couple to adopt because their beliefs mean they would not be able to teach a child that same sex marriage was right.

A Winnipeg judge gave a rapist a suspended sentence, and told the victim "not to dress so sexy" because that was what probably caused the rape to happen.  He is not a very happy camper now as his tenure as a judge is being reviewed.

Radio news Bradders, not sure which channel either BBC 2 or 4 ...it attracted my attention because if it is true he has set a precedent which will prevent many other Christians from adopting...in the same year they have been prevented from running B and B's unless they accept same sex couples. Yet other faiths are free to follow their beliefs in this country.

Belle. If it is true , I understand your concern , but I would guess that legal challenges would be forthcoming.

I think the "same sex /B&B " issue was out of order .....the couple  involved could have been more sensitive to the owners'  position , and shouldn't  have brought that case .......It was hardly "live and let live " on their part  , either ...eh !

Check this LINK. I heard a song called 'Why don't they make Jews like Jesus anymore?' Kinky Friedman is a bit of a character. Quote: "All politicians should be limited to two terms, one in office and one in prison. Definition of politics: Poli = many. Tics = nasty little biting bugs'. Definitely a bit of a character!

The policy wonks seem to have digested what is happening in Libya and I hear tell-tale phrases like 'military no-fly zone' and 'nothing has been ruled out'. I hope the cooler heads are in control, I fear foreign policy made on the hoof.
