  1. Look at the location. Definitely middle eastern. I remember my first trip down Edgeware Road and being surprised by all the hookah pipe smoking down the Marble Arch end. Actually a nice area if you can cope with the smell of horse poo from the stables dotted around the place. I believe Mr Blair's pad is around the corner.
  2. More specifically, the "pot kettle" quotient is upped by the owner's of the Guardian's use of offshore account to minimise tax on their sale of certain assets, according to Private Eye.
  3. I know this is just your opinion, but it is a very bizarre one. In in my minds eye I'm seeing the hordes of 17 year old physicists, biologists, chemists and engineered who, having passed an A level (which I suspect that you think are dumbed down), magically know more than a lecturer. Presumably by dint of springing fully formed from the loins of Zeus. Edited - typo
  4. Huddersfield University has 4,500 new places each year? >12k students at any one time? Jesus.
  5. Reading the thread, looks like there are houses that sell and those that don't Oddly, no one is interested in looking at the unpleasant houses.
  6. Weird. For starters, spot the link between the two highlighted sentences. Then, check out the strange conflation of anti-nurse and anti-doctor sentiment.
  7. For G4S to have won, there must have been some serious fowl play during the tendering process.
  8. Sorry to rain on the parade, but the FSA made things rather worse for bankers, actually. Before that, the burden of proof for insider trading was so onerous that even the most apparently egregious (alleged) act went unpunished: think Archer and Anglia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jeffrey_Archer#Allegations_of_insider_dealings The number of steps to prove ITrading were numerous and each had to be ticked off: if one wasn't, there wasn't a case to answer. IIRC from my FSA training a while back, there was a single case proven in 20 years. May be mistaken The UK Act brought in market manipulation, summarised nicely here. Shows some examples of successful prosecutions.
  9. Bloke from the Uni there (Dwyer) tried to set up a business a la Decode (the Icelandic genetics company) based on the inbrededness of your average Taswegian. Turns out, they are quite a diverse bunch.
  10. I'd guess a mining engineering degree in UNSW wouldn't be a bad idea at the moment. Not sure how the supply / demand situation will look on graduation, though.
  11. You'll need to be more specific. It's like saying "anyone been to Scotland?"
