I can think of a few so called council officals i would like to put in front of a firing squad in Hull in the UK.

You can't have a firing squad in Hull, they require guns.

Stoning squad down on the beach, maybe.

PS, I always felt sorry for Clara in that deal.

April 28 is also the international day of mourning for workers killed and injured on the job.

Sorry to intrude on this site, but you usually do a daily "what is this day about."

I have no political agenda. Most of us are/were wage earners, and some have paid a mortal price for going to work.

Look what happened to Benito.
