I think the behaviour of the rebels and the Russian authorities is terrible. They have forgotten the human side of this terrible situation. Shame on Putin who is clearly behind those rebels and is pulling all the strings. Those families want to claim the bodies of the dead and they should treat the dead with some dignity  it must be hell for those families waiting to have the bodies of their loved ones.
The latest news is that

A separatist leader in eastern Ukraine says rebels have recovered the black boxes from Malaysia Airlines Flight 17.

Alexander Borodai said the devices will be handed over to the International Civil Aviation Organisation.

He also said the bodies recovered from the crash site in eastern Ukraine would remain in refrigerated containers at a train station in the town of Torez until the arrival of an international aviation delegation.


Well let's hope the civil aviation people get there without any more loss of time and that the rebels actually mean what they say.  Of course if the flight recorders prove Putin's involvement in all this beyond a shadow of doubt, then I really cannot see how can wriggle out of it, although he'll do his best to try to do so.

Its very sad about the plane but hundreds of Iraqis are still being blown up every week by suicide bombers and there is never this outpouring of grief and global outrage. Is a white European life worth more?

RIP James Garner (MAVERICK) who died at home last night aged 86!

Sorry to learn of the passing of James Garner.

Many of the younger members of MW may not recall his TV career as Brett Maverick in the Western series Maverick. In my early days, I used to play a lot of poker with considerable success. As a consequence of which I acquired the nickname "Maverick"; not totally justified, but it was because my opponents didn't like losing.
