Tito Jackson,”The Doc killed Michael.”

July 20, 2009

Michael Jackson’s brother Tito is accusing Doctor Conrad Murray of murder.

”Grieving Tito Jackson claimed Dr Conrad Murrays dithering as he tried to resuscitate his stricken brother wasted vital minutes that might have cost him his life. He accused the physician of not acting quickly enough to get help and said his methods of revival were far from the standards expected of a qualified doctor.Tito claimed Dr Murray began flapping when Jacko collapsed at his Los Angeles home. The 55-year-old said: My opinion is that he panicked when my brother didnt wake up.I think the doctor probably figured he was in trouble and he tried to revive Michael.”

Ya figure?

Girl of Riyadh given political asylum in UK

July 20, 2009

I am reading Girls of Riyadh at the moment and so this story in the Independent about a Saudi princess who has been given political asylum in the UK.

” A Saudi Arabian princess who had an illegitimate child with a British man has secretly been granted asylum in this country after she claimed she would face the death penalty if she were forced to return home. The young woman, who has been granted anonymity by the courts, won her claim for refugee status after telling a judge that her adulterous affair made her liable to death by stoning.  ……… The woman, who comes from a very wealthy Saudi family, says she met her English boyfriend – who is not a Muslim – during a visit to London. They struck up a relationship

She became pregnant the following year and worried that her elderly husband – a member of the Royal Family of Saudi Arabia – had become suspicious of her behaviour, she persuaded him to let her visit the UK again to give birth in secret. She feared for her life if she returned to Saudi Arabia.

She persuaded the court that if she returned to the Gulf state she and her child would be subject to capital punishment under Sharia law – specifically flogging and stoning to death. She was also worried about the possibility of an honour killing. Since she fled Saudi Arabia, her family and her husband’s family have broken off contact with her.”

This will not make the headlines……………wonder why?

Girls of Riyadh

July 17, 2009

 

I’m a bit of a late developper. I’ll probably watch Harry Potter 6 in 2012 and i still haven’t watched any Sex in the City or Grey’s Anatomy. I had heard of this book ‘Girls of Riyadh’ a while back, but, strangely enough ( not ) didn’t really see it bursting off the bookshelves here. We went to Al Jarir Bookshop last week and there it was, in all it’s lipstick rouge red glory, one last copy flying off the shelf at me.

I am quite enjoying it so far, and am shocked to the core at Waleed’s total trashing of Sadeem, never mind Gamrah’s terrible experience with the ‘fiilipina tramp’ Kari her new husband has been seeing for seven years. True, as someone says, the novel is ‘no literary genius’ but it is interesting ,by reading it, to confirm that what goes on in Saudi is the same as Kuwait……

Such was the success of Girls of Riyadh, that it is now being made into a film, and the author nominated for the 2009 Dublin Literary Award.

Indian State Demands Virgins………..

July 15, 2009

Naughty girls don’t get the state’s blessing in India these days as the state sponsored wedding officials are demanding virginity tests ( now sorry , but let’s not even go in to how ridiculous that is in this day and age of bicycles and tampax….) and pregnancy tests.

A row has broken out in the central state of Madhya Pradesh after some 151 girls were ordered to take the tests. The results showed 15 girls were pregnant. These brides were then excluded from a mass ceremony in Shahdol. Well, better than 151 pregnant…..

Kudos to Chief  Minister Shivraj Singh Chauhan  for his attempt at a sound bite the UK Labour would be proud of, as he said they had not carried out “virginity tests” but the girls had simply undergone “procedural medical examinations”. Mmm, yes, open wide, but not too wide.

Just a thought, but were 151 virginity (or STD tests) carried out on the grooms?

Privates not on parade- and whatabout hot Ahmadi?

July 15, 2009

Rain , snow and freezing fog in Kuwait?

No that’s just wishful thinking on our part……………oh for a drop of water in this inferno. My very nostrils feel on fire and I have had to put vaseline up my nose to stop it burning…….what on earth did they do before AC?

Well this morning’s Arab Times tells us the’ Ahmadi police recently raided two apartments and arrested 41 Asian women who had reportedly advertised in their mother tongue inviting men for what they called ‘temporary marriage’, reports Al-Anba daily. A security source said the advertisements placed on apartment walls said the marriage pleasure cost KD 3 for one hour. All those arrested have been referred to the concerned authorities…..’all heating up even more down KOC way then……

Several Kuwaiti cadets have contracted swine flu in the UK- let’s hope they don’t intend to return to Kuwait to visit mama and baba…..or have they just manufactured a cough and the sniffles to miss parade?

A rose in the blue

July 15, 2009

Richard Cass buried a red rose in the Blue mountaiuns, a rose for his son, the son he believed he would never see again. 12 days ago Jamie Neale went for a walk that turned into a walkabout. Missing for akmost 2 weeks in the harsh Australian wilderness, rescuers and family had almost given up.

The 19-year-old had last been seen leaving a youth hostel in Katoomba, New South Wales, early on Friday July 3 to go for a trek in the rugged region.

When he failed to return, a search operation was launched – a check of his room revealed he had left his passport and mobile phone behind. Not a good idea when you are trekking off into the wild. In a dramatic development, the teenager was finally located by other hikers in the Blue Mountains, who alerted police.

Without food, Jamie survived on seeds, grass and a kind of lettuce and slept under a log during his ordeal.

What is HP6 ?

July 15, 2009

I found this topic on my twitter this morning……………..what is it? Is it a new strain of flu? Bovine virus? A new flavour of ketchup?

I flummoxed- did I spell that right?
