    Gary Neville has described Real Madrid star and ex-Manchester United team-mate Cristiano Ronaldo as a "bully" who preys on defenders' weaknesses.

    Real Madrid v Man Utd: Cristiano Ronaldo 'bullies defenders'

    Gary Neville has described Real Madrid star and ex-Manchester United team-mate Cristiano Ronaldo as a "bully" who preys on defenders' weaknesses.
    I'm not disputing the fact he did call him a 'bully' of sorts, what I do take umbrage with is the headline they gave it, as if it was to imply that Ronaldo goes round kicking 7 year-ol boys in the balls and stealing their lunch money.

    Another example of the BBC's descent into competing with the likes of the daily mail with it's base attention grabbing story summaries. Which is what I thought this thread was kind of about.

    It's a bad headline. It makes Neville sound like he's criticising Ronaldo when he's actually doing the exact opposite.

    While rootling for some old information, I came across this story about UK productivity, from last year:

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-19981498

    Are there any economists reading? If you are puzzled by rising employment and falling output figures, do you expect to find the answers in sudoku?

    Lyse Doucet:
    We've been to Qusair or what's left of Qusair. A bustling city where 30,000 once lived is now a city in ruins.

    We didn't see a single building that escaped three weeks of intense fighting. We saw only a handful of civilians - a few farmers on tractors heading out of the city, one family loading a pick up.

    But the troops were everywhere - travelling in trucks and armoured vehicles, firing guns in celebration, moving on foot through the streets - both Syrians and Lebanese from the Hezbollah movement. Those well-trained fighters helped the government take back a strategic city that lies on vital supply routes for both government and opposition forces.

    The rebels say they withdrew early this morning and are vowing to fight back. For now, the Syrian flag and a picture of President Assad flies on top of Qusayr's clock tower - the tower still stands, but only just.

    A woman has been fined for taking her horse into a McDonald's restaurant in Greater Manchester.

    At least she was in the saddle i.e. not a tinker. Sounds odd though. A jolly old gallop over the fields after Mr. Fox, then off to maccy-D's for a nice lunch. Doesn't sound right at all.

    They spent a decent chunk of Breakfast explaining how childbirth works this morning, with some guy outside St Mary's telling an apparently stunned studio that the labour could either be a long one or a short one; we just don't know.

    And there was me thinking that it worked by prince William face hugging Kate before the foetus bursts from her chest, the emerging lizard-creature hurriedly shod into a human skin before the presentation. Apparently royal babies are the same as ours after all.

    In David Icke's mind, this is EXACTLY what happens.

    Puff piece to inform us of nothing more than that the new FA chairman is going to give his first speech, along with speculation about what he might say.

    Oh, it's their old chum Greg Dyke. That'll be why.

    It really fucking pisses me off when the BBC has spelling and grammatical mistakes, I'm not a grammar Nazi at all but seriously, don't they have proof readers or spell checkers? It makes them look like fucking amateurs.

    Brians 'outraged' by Brian the police horse name change plan.

    This is the news. AS IT HAPPENS.

    edit:
    Brian Lewis from Ascot said: "I think it's outrageous. Brian is a good name for a horse."

    Brian Poulson, from Bracknell in Berkshire, said he was "appalled".

    He said: "Brian should be one of the most popular names, one of the most popular Monty Python films is Life of Brian.
    I pity the poor researcher who was told to find some Brian's to get a quote from. Although they could just be making it up.

    He looks like more of a Brian than a Odin.
