Heather Mills got Lucy in the sky with Diamonds literally, £24.3m for her divorce from Mr. Beatle, Sir Paul McCartney!
Speaking outside London’s High Court, Ms Mills said she was “glad it’s over” and “it was an incredible result to secure mine and my daughter’s future”. As part of the deal, Ms Mills will receive £14 million for herself and £2.5m to buy a house in London. The couple failed to reach an agreement in court last month, leaving the judge to determine the final figure.
The woman is just …incredible! How the hell she excused all these money from Mr. Beatle? It makes you suspicious for the reasons she marry him.
Markets from New York to Tokyo have recorded heavy losses in reaction to the emergency bailout of US investment bank Bear Stearns over the weekend. In New York the Dow Jones Industrials tumbled 194 points, more than 1.5%, in early trading before recovering. London’s FTSE 100 index was down 2.7%, in Paris the Cac 40 slumped 2.9% and Frankfurt’s Dax fell 4.1%. The Bank of England on Monday made an extra £5bn ($10bn) available for UK banks to borrow to ease credit fears.
The money was five times over-subscribed. Meanwhile, on the markets US, UK and European banks were hammered; Lehman Brothers fell 30%, UBS lost 13%, HBOS 10% and Commerzbank fell 7.9%. Investors are worried that the collapse of Bear Stearns, one of Wall Street’s biggest names, is a sign that the credit crunch is getting worse and lending might seize up.
They’ve been talking about the crisis coming for years and it seems that they always do something to save the day the very last moment. What remains is to see what they are going to do this time and which time they will be …too late! That’s why they take desperate measures all the time and I hate these doom-day scenarios but the same time it is amazing how much our lives, our everyday lives are connected with the stocks and these markets!
Why do I have the idea that this sounds like, free elections in Iran? Pakistan’s new parliament has convened for the first time since President Pervez Musharraf and his allies suffered a heavy blow in elections. Correspondents say the stage is set for a confrontation between President Musharraf and the government.
The parties of assassinated former Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto and another former Prime Minister, Nawaz Sharif, have agreed a coalition.
More than 300 members of the National Assembly were sworn in. The 18 February polls delivered a huge blow to President Musharraf’s parliamentary allies, making his position more precarious.
Wish them good luck? But they have all the luck as long they lick Musharraf’s …ass!!!
The big question was from the beginning how the Kosovo Serbs will react to Kosovo’s independence and furthermore how the rulers Kosovo Albanians will react to Kosovo Serbians reactions. And it is natural for the Serbs to react to what illegally the Albanians did and it is natural to demand their return to Serbia.
Unfortunately once more this American administration helped from UK and the usual suspects saw the tree and missed the forest ignoring for the high coast in the area. An area that has suffered for centuries and obviously will continue suffering, in the past were the Turks now will be the Albanians who terrorise of course with a little help from the …Turks who as usual work from the dark corners of history and hypocrisy
Voters in local elections haven’t been so …kind to President Sarkozy handing key cities to the left. So the socialists got Toulouse, Caen, Strasbourg, Amiens and Reims and they held the power in Paris and Lyon and they are close to get Marseille, the stronghold for the conservatives.
Times are difficult for Sarkozy and his popularity is well on the way down after the last elections on May with him finding more difficult to pass his program.
The revenge of the socialists or people realize that apart of marriages and divorces there is nothing else to come form Mr. Sarkozy?
