Bill Maher seems to me to be so comfortably well-off he doesn't have to think any more. Which is fine for himself, in the twilight of his years, but why do the rest of us have to be made aware of his lack of intelligence?

Breaking news, sport, TV, radio and a whole lot more. The BBC informs, educates and entertains - wherever you are, whatever your age.

The BBC is an abomination, and everyone associated with its existence seems devoid of any conscience. It is well past its sell-by date and needs to die.

First thing to do is to stop referring to human children as 'kids'.

BORIS JOHNSON could be the shortest lasting Prime Minister in UK history according to a shock suggestion from ITV political editor Robert Peston.

Is Preston another one of those geniuses who can see into the future? Over the last few years I think we can agree we have had a bellyful of media parasites who claim to be able to predict the fate of us all. They are vermin and should be treated as such.

Sad as it may seem, historically the British have every reason to look to their royal family as a symbol of over-lordship which has its legitimacy tried and tested by its interaction with those who wanted to topple the established order. Most of Europe's monarchies bit the dust, ours kept going. Charles might be the end of it, though.

EARTH’S orbit may one day need to alter to escape being devoured by its dying Sun. And an engineer has devised some ingenious solutions for achieving this ambition.

Set your alarm clocks. The sun is not scheduled to leave the Main Sequence (ie normal operations) for another five thousand million years. Does anyone seriously believe that human beings, or even creatures that can even vaguely be called our descendants, will still be around? All this speculative nonsense is inspired by that Chinese movie 'The Wandering Earth' which is on Netflix.

Woke fans have had a Doctor Who writer removed from a short story collection because he holds incorrect views about transgender issues.

Why was a writer who is only concocting childish space travel adventures even talking about gender issues in the first place?

I've not heard it, but I assume it is similar to 'Boobs in California' by Gordy feat. Titus Andromedon.

At the Cannes film festival last month, the scandal arrived with metronomic predictability: Quentin Tarantino's "Once Upon a Time in ... Hollywood" might have been the week's hottest ticket and Korean filmmaker Bong Joon-ho might have taken the cherished Palme d'Or. But it was Abdellatif Kechiche's "Mektoub, My Love: Intermezzo" that set tongues wagging, literally and figuratively. The nearly four-hour film caused a ruckus, not just because of its derriere-numbing running time (most of it spent observing nubile teenage girls twerking to a pounding soundtrack of club music), but because of a 15-minute scene of cunnilingus, filmed so realistically that questions immediately arose as to whether it was unsimulated. Graphic sex is a longtime staple at Cannes, where in 2003 director Vincent Gallo outraged audiences with a scene of him receiving oral sex from Chloë Sevigny in "The Brown Bunny," and where 10 years later viewers were confronted with the sight of several male members in various degrees of tumescence in "Stranger by the Lake," followed by a 17-minute sex scene in Kechiche's lesbian coming-of-age story "Blue Is the Warmest Color." The actresses in "Blue Is the Warmest Color" intimated that they felt poorly treated by Kechiche on the set of that film. This year, he faced accusations that he plied his young "Intermezzo" actors with alcohol until they engaged in real-life sex acts for the camera. Meanwhile, as that controversy played out on the Riviera, U.S. audiences were flocking to see "John Wick 3," in between making "Avengers: Endgame" and "Aladdin" huge hits. One of them a dark, fetishistically violent thriller, one a live-action comic book, one a Disney fairy tale, all resolutely sex-free. Thus does a familiar pattern repeat itself: The summer begins with a new crop of sexually explicit, mostly European...

Not only was there no sex in these movies, but there were no women either, but I don't recall either Ice Station Zebra or John Carpenter's The Thing receiving a load of bollockings because of these vast deficiencies.

The Trump administration has reportedly rejected requests from U.S. embassies to fly the rainbow pride flag on embassy flagpoles during LGBTQ Pride month -- an apparent reversal of a practice during the Obama administration.

So, if I understand it correctly, the ambassadors themselves were putting forward requests to fly these offensive flags. What on earth is wrong with these people?
