      Don't worry I'll start one, you lazy cu*ts!!  xxxxx:action-smiley-065:

      Pet dog 'ate crack' then killed owner in front of BBC crew filming drug documentary

      A Staffordshire Bull Terrier that was suspected to have eaten crack cocaine mauled and killed its owner while he was filming a documentary on drugs.

      Mario Perivoitos, who worked in IT, died in hospital shortly after he was attacked by "Major".

      Perivoitos received serious injuries to his face and neck, extensive haemorrhaging and his larynx was crushed, an inquest heard.

      The BBC film crew at his home in North London called an ambulance and tried to fight off the dog, which had attached itself to the 41-year-old’s neck.

      They were trapped in the flat for around 30 minutes. Police took almost 10 minutes to open the door in the tower block as it was heavily locked.

      Perivoitos had been filming a BBC documentary called Drugs Map Britain. On the night he died, he came home after 10pm having consumed cocaine and became unwell, resulting in an epileptic fit.

      The dog then attacked his owner as he lay on his bed.

      “The dog was eight times the drug drive limit,” said Nicholas Carmichael, a veterinary toxicology expert, who found cocaine and morphine in the dog’s urine, according to reports.

      ”The dog had clearly taken it and, whether it had eaten it or taken it in by smoke, it is likely to have been a factor in the dog's behaviour."

      Coroner Andrew Walker concluded that the dog had probably eaten the drug and been provoked by his owner having an epileptic fit.

      He also said that Perivoitos had died due to his injuries from the attack.

      Major was due to be destroyed, according to police. It is not clear if it has happened yet.

      Destroy a dog that was obviously off its tits on cocaine and morphine, when "it is likely to have been a factor in the dog's behaviour."

      Don't agree with that, Dog been put to sleep because of irresponsibility/neglect of owner..

      Horrible and tragic in equal measure but the circumstances around it don't warrant the dog being destroyed.

      Anfield house fire: Three hurt in roof collapse

      Three people have been injured after a roof collapsed in a house fire in Liverpool.

      A man was taken to the major trauma unit at Aintree University Hospital after the fire broke out on Anfield Road, near Liverpool's home ground.

      Two other people were taken to hospital after emergency services were called at about 17:30 BST.

      Eyewitnesses reported hearing a "big bang" and then "screaming and shouting".

      Chris Greenaway, who lives on the street, said he saw a man leave the house with a bloodied arm and in "a state of shock".

      The 19-year-old business student said after hearing a "big bang" he looked out of his window to see "the road filled up with smoke" and then heard "screaming and shouting".

      "About 10 seconds later, the roof went off, tiles went to the floor and three big bangs occurred," he said.

      Merseyside Police said it was called to reports of a house fire and roof collapse. Three fire engines were sent to the scene, the fire service added.

      German elections: Far-right wins MPs for first time in half a century


      A far-right party has won seats in the German parliament for the first time in half a century, in an election that saw Angela Merkel returned as chancellor for the fourth contest straight.

      The German chancellor pledged to address the concerns of people who voted for the anti-Muslim and anti-immigration AfD after initial results showed it winning 13.5 per cent of the vote – at the higher end of what was expected.

      Meanwhile, the centre-left SPD – the current coalition partners of Ms Merkel’s CDU and a titan of German politics for 150 years – have hit a historic low of just 20 per cent, the social democratic party’s worst showing since the Second World War.

      Small parties in general did well in the election and were all up on their 2013 results, with the the liberal FDP re-entering the Bundestag with 10.5 per cent of the vote, the Greens on 9.5 per cent, and the left-wing Die Linke on 9 per cent. Turnout and voter participation also appears to have climbed since the previous election, which was held in 2013.

      SPD leader Martin Schulz immediately ruled out going back into coalition with Ms Merkel, leaving the Chancellor likely to go into coalition with the liberals and the Greens – the so called “Jamaica Coalition” because the colour of the parties matches the country’s flag yellow, black, and green flag.

      Such a coalition has not been formed at German national level before – though it does sometimes occur in Germany’s state parliaments, such as in the northern state of Schleswig-Holstein where it currently operates.

      Ms Merkel could alternatively try to form a minority government if she is unable to secure the formal backing of other parties – with coalition negotiations expected to take weeks or even months.

      The result is a huge blow for Mr Schulz, a former president of the European Parliament who became SPD leader earlier this year and once hoped to unseat Ms Merkel from the Bundeskanzleramt. His appointment as leader in March saw the SPD spike in the polls, but his honeymoon quickly faded.

      Speaking after exit polls were released, Ms Schulz attacked “right-wing extremism” of the AfD and told supporters assembled in Berlin: “What is depressing for us tonight is the result of the AfD.

      “For the first time with them there will be far-right representation in the Bundestag.”

      One of the largest cheers of the night from Mr Schulz’s address was his announcement that he would drop the coalition with Ms Merkel – a pact that has cause rifts within the SPD. Mr Schulz himself did not serve as a minister in the government, he says, because he wanted to replace Ms Merkel as chancellor.

      In a speech following the exit poll, Ms Merkel attacked “illicit migration” and said “internal and domestic security” would be one of the focuses of coming months – an apparent nod to the AfD’s priorities.

      She told assembled CDU supporters: “We got where we wanted to be, we wanted to be the strongest power. It is down to us to form a government, and against us, no government can be formed.

      “After 12 years of being responsible for the government, the result we had today is really not something you can take for granted. Naturally, there’s a challenge facing us for the future, and that is that the AfD has made it into parliament.

      “We will have to win back those who voted for the AfD by solving their problems, by taking on board their concerns – their fears in some cases – but also by demonstrating good policymaking.

      “In recent months we have fought for a Germany that we want to live in well, and now we need to set the course to ensure that in five and ten years’ time it’s still the case.”

      Alexander Gauland, the lead candidate for the AfD said: “The government, whatever it will look like, should get ready for tough times. We’ll chase them. We’ll take back our country and our people.”

      The campaign was dominated by the AfD’s messaging on the refugee crisis and Muslims in particular, with the party’s anti-Islam posters littered all over German cities and towns.

      The closest the Bundestag has come to having far-right MPs since the Second World War was the Deutsche Rechtspartei, or German Right Party, a hard-right national conservative outfit that attracted former Nazis and won five seats in the 1949 federal election. It lost those seats at the next election.

      Other than the AfD, the most notorious contemporary German far-right party is the National Democratic Party of Germany (NPD). The NPD has previously won scattered representation in local state parliaments but has failed to ever win any seats in the Bundestag.

      BEIRUT, Lebanon — High school students in Saudi Arabia opened their social studies textbooks this week to find that the Force was with them.

      In a lesson about the United Nations was a historic photograph of King Faisal. To his right stood Yoda, the Jedi master from the “Star Wars” films.

      One ruled Saudi Arabia for 11 years, outlawed slavery, spread public education and introduced television to his country.

      The other was adept with a light saber, trained Luke Skywalker and lived for more than 800 years.

      Chelsea, Everton and Tottenham fans were most likely to vote a particular way on Brexit.

      Fans of Chelsea, Everton and Tottenham were most likely to have voted for Brexit , a survey revealed today.

      But despite Everton fans being second most likely to vote leave in the Premier League, neighbouring Liverpool fans were second most likely to vote remain, with 77% backing Britain staying in the EU.
