Tory MP arrested on rape charges 'should have whip withdrawn'

Surely it would have been better to remove his whip before he raped them. Come on, UK press, you were a bit slack there.

I'm thinking of applying for French citizenship as I believe all frogs are weirdos with filthy habits and strange sexual ideals, thus I would be a great fit.

I usually regard the ways companies try to voodoo you into spending money with some contempt, but I have to admit this effort from B&Q has impressed me.

I have been considering getting rid of my bathtub and replacing it with a shower cubicle to create a bit more space in my bathroom. Doing so would enable me to reposition the loo, which is much too close to the side wall. I wouldn't be able to do the plumbing to save my life so I thought well, if I'm going to have to get someone to build it, I may as well see if they can design it too, so I googled "Bathroom Design" and found this really cool room design app. It adds up the price of the components and you can either buy the bits and install them yourself or, and this is the clever marketing, you can submit your design and they'll send you a quote to supply and build it.

The computer model isn't great - the components don't look to me as though they are perfectly to scale:

In 360 mode you can move around and view it rom any angle, but the overall dimensions are a bit off. The room is almost a perfect square, but it doesn't look like it in this view...

...but it does give me a very good idea of what the room could look like.

I used something similar a few years ago to design my living room, but that was much more involved; I had to specify the precise dimensions of everything, whereas this is more of a rough guide with standardized components.
They've made it very easy, and have probably succeeded in getting me to spend about twice what I thought I was going to. I know I'm being manipulated but somehow I don't mind.

Has anyone seen the film/TV series they made of his life?

They found an actor (?) to play the lead -who looked similar to John Denver but who couldn't really act. His lip synchronization was totally out in the songs and he jiggled about on the stage like someone with St Vitus Dance.

Quite disconcerting really - wouldn't watch it again.

It is clearly irreducibly complex.
