Sleepless in Fulham: Rambling and gambling by David Young
Friday, 6 July 2007
Winners can laugh. Losers make their own arrangements.
Topic: Poker

Great moments in text messaging:

From DY to Andy Ward -

"Titmus, Oakley and I win a fiver in pub quiz - and I doubled up with a side bet with Oakley. We are winners!"

From Andy Ward to DY -

"No one remembers who came second :-)"

Completly unrelated I know, but if your back in the UK, did you catch Question time this week? Davina McCall and her views on the middle east would have got you frothing at the mouth.

 Quality broadcasting from the BBC it was not!

Didn't see it. I went out to a pub quiz (see above) and set the video for House and CSI. I do like Question Time, but not when the panel is "lightweight".

Hi David, hope you are well. Sorry for changing the subject here but I have to share this with you as it is something that I feel very strongly about.

I am not usually one for signing petitions but in this case i will definitely make an exception. If you could read below and send it to as many people as you can, it would be much appreciated.


(copied and pasted from an email i recieved)

Don't know if you have heard about this but Ken Livingstone is
> apparently planning to use tax payer's money to build an enormous
> mosque costing an estimated £100M in the docklands.
> Wouldn't it be better to spend the money on a new hospital or
> improved transport facilities. anything but such a scheme as this:
> The mosque will be BIGGER THAN ST PAUL'S!!!
> The plan is for the mosque to be so big so that people flying in
> all over the world for the 2012 Olympics will see it as the biggest
> landmark in London , bigger than St Pauls, Westminster Abbey or
> Wembley Stadium.
> The vote so far is 56 % in favour. It looks like the Muslim
> community in the UK is casting its vote in droves,
> and as usual the British are burying their heads in the sand...
> It is an undemocratic use of British Tax payers money, especially
> when our Churches that are 100's of years
> old get no government funding to keep their structures standing, and
> we are supposedly a Christian Nation.
> To vote to "Scrap the 'Mega-Mosque" please sign the official
> Government petition in the link below.
> Please, after voting, forward this
> to as many people as you can.

Wikipedia has an entry for this: 

also check out this: 

which reveals that there have been 3,000 objections to the mosque, as proposed, from local muslims, because they think it would only promote one version of Islam, not many.

Not sure where tax-payers money comes in. The petition you link to seems to only speak for Christians, which I find rather annoying.

Thanks for the link David. Are you back in London yet? When are you next at the Vic?
