   The one that's exercising me at the moment is MH320 - now there's a rich field. Historically the one that fascinates me most is the Titanic insurance fraud theory.

Titanic insurance fraud?  I missed that particular one so must check it out!

MH320 is indeed fascinating, and I doubt if we'll ever find out the truth, but then that's what keeps all good conspiracy theories going.

Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership......(TTIP) for short. Most of you might not have heard of this, because 'it's being deliberately played down and kept quiet'! My advice to everyone who lives in the UK, would be to find out as much about this as you possibly can, because if this is allowed to go ahead, it will change all our lives forever and I don't mean for the better!
This is mine!

Thanks for the reminder Caz - and in case anyone isn't aware of this evil monster (which won't be surprising because we're not supposed to know about it) here's a link which should provide much food for thought - http://www.independent.co.uk/voices/comment/what-is-ttip-and-six-reasons-why-the-answer-should-scare-you-9779688.html

Thanks for the link Aileen! I tried to post one for an article by Ian Dunt, but I couldn't get it to work! It's definitely worth googling though! If anyone watched 'Question Time' the week before last....Thurs. 9th Oct., you'd have seen Eric Pickles being asked by another panellist, 'would the NSH be privatised' and though she repeated the question about 6 times, he refused to answer it every time! All he would say each time is "It doesn't really matter as long as it's free at the point of treatment!" Now we know why.....but unfortunately, that won't be the worst of our worries if this horrendous bill goes through!

I signed a petition protesting about TTIP a while ago, and if I get any more I'll email you a copy to sign.  In fact I'll put a link to it on here if I can.

History has been made this fine afternoon.

An unmanned robot made in Germany has successfully landed on a comet for the first time in history.

 Fantastic achievement - but there were actually about ten European nations involved in designing and building the mission and its hardware. Mission control was Darmstadt in Germany. Looking forward to seeing the first images.

Same here BBH.  I just wish they'd co-operate on a few more things. Whistle

The first images were incredible too.
