I have just received this email from Flip. Bear in mind that the whole point of the Flip is that it requires you to do nothing beyond pointing it in the right direction and pressing Record.In what world is an email like this appropriate for purchasers of such a product?
It's a strange experience being in a minority of one. Seeing the standing ovation, hearing the thunderous applause, and then reading the reactions of my fellow critics, I wonder how people can have such a bizarrely positive reaction to so wretched a piece of rubbish.
As I write, Sky is reporting that protesters have set fire to a police
station in Tripoli. That’s nice for them. They’re lucky they can find a
police station to set fire to. Our local nick in North London shut up
shop donkey’s years ago.
[T]he combined might of Labour’s useful idiots in the voluntary and
charitable sector...are neither volunteers nor charitable – they are
paid and their money comes not from individuals but the state. No
wonder they snap any time a hand reaches to turn off the tap.
The Israeli Ministry of Foreign Affairs confirmed today that the current Israeli Ambassador to the UK, Ron Prosor, is to be the new Ambassador to the UN.
His replacement in London will be Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's current National Security Adviser, Uzi Arad.
The appointment of a UN Ambassador has been a running sore within the coalition as successive candidates have turned it down, some publicly. Other suggested names are said to have caused friction between the PM and the Foreign Minister, Avigdor Lieberman.

EXCLUSIVE: Israel's Opposition leader, Tzipi Livni, has made an unprecedented declaration of support for the call by Mick Davis, chairman of both the UJIA and the executive committee of the Jewish Leadership Council, for a role for the diaspora in discussing Israel's future.
Ms Livni, speaking to the JC, said: "As leaders, we in Israel must take into account the concerns of diaspora Jewry. Israel is strong enough to take criticism from within the family of Jews, who say, ok, we disapprove of Israeli policy, but we stand firm for Israel."
