sent an email to the New Stateman about the changed link in the story. If one changes something in an article it should be stated after the article. Many other websites have 'article history' links to show the changes.

The BBC and the media have started gushing about the World Cup being held in South Africa, ' the rainbow country.' God thats irritating isnt it, ' rainbow.'
Its a shame for South Africa, the poor sods.
50 murders per day
20.000 murders per year
200.000 rapes and robberies per year.

jamil - It's pointless asking him that as I don't even think he knows the answer himself. He suffers from brain flatulence and sadly there's no Imodium style remedy for it.
As with anybody else suffering from this embarrassing illness, however distracting, it's probably best to try to ignore the sound of his brain farting.
Anyone have down 14:28 in the sweepstake?
It is a bit rich to think the WHOLE of Africa is like Malawi? Mali, for instance, had people that were once years ahead, and maybe still, of us in a broadminded consideration of the human condition.
I remember when I was in University with a Nigerian lad and he was quite comfortable with Pet Shop Boys music, if you get what I mean.
Most European countries struggle to deal with left-footers, Italy the most, I think, ironically!
Bless his heart, but Tatchell can be a busybody sometimes. I think he should be more respectful of Africans and more responsive to their cultural sensibilities.
