            never heard of them before today but they sound like a bunch of loopers who have been a bit of a laughing stock and who are trying to get some publicity (I reserve the right to be totally wrong)

            if they carry it outthey should be arrested for inciting violence

            for what its worth i'd say they will probably back down and do a protest somewhere else. They'd hardly get enough people over to Australia either way to make any difference.

                    Saw that. They are crazy. And not the backing down type.

                    They've picketed the funerals of casualties of the Iraq war to make their point that the death of US soldiers is God'spunishment on America for being "fag loving".

                      Television presenter and prankster Jeremy Beadle has died aged 59.

                      One of ITV's most popular hosts during the 1980s, he was admitted to hospital last week suffering from pneumonia.

                      He was best known for fronting You've Been Framed, Game
                      For a Laugh and Beadle's About, but raised millions for the charity
                      Children with Leukaemia.

                      Former You've Been Framed producer Dianne Nelmes said he
                      was known for his pranks, "but in reality he was the kindest person you
                      could ever meet".

                      behind his wife Sue, daughters Cassie and Bonnie, and his stepchildren
                      Leo and Claire.

                      In his heyday, he regularly attracted television audiences of 15 million for Beadle's About and You've Been Framed.

                      But in recent years he had battled poor health after
                      being diagnosed with a mild form of leukaemia in 2005. He also had a
                      cancerous kidney removed.

                      He attracted funds for Children with Leukaemia all
                      through his life and is thought to have raised more than £100 million
                      for all charities.

                      In 2001 he was awarded an MBE.

                      Mr Beadle was diagnosed with cancer in 2005, but did this did not lessen his work rate.

                      In autumn 2007 he released three books, and he had been working on ideas for television programmes when he fell ill.

                            ‘Jaws’ star Scheider dies, aged 75
                            11/02/2008 - 07:28:42

                            Roy Scheider, a two-time Oscar nominee best known for his role as the police chief in the blockbuster ‘Jaws’, has died, it was announced today.

                            Scheider, 75, died at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences hospital in Little Rock.

                            The hospital did not release a cause of death, but spokeswoman Leslie Taylor said Scheider had been treated for multiple myeloma at the hospital's Myeloma Institute for Research and Therapy for the past two years.

                            He was nominated for an Oscar for best-supporting actor in 1971's ‘The French Connection’, in which he played the police partner of Oscar winner Gene Hackman and for best actor for 1979's ‘All That Jazz’, the autobiographical Bob Fosse film.

                            He was best known for his role in Steven Spielberg's 1975 film, ‘Jaws’ however, the enduring classic about a killer shark terrorising beachgoers - and millions of film fans.

                            Widely hailed as the film that launched the era of the Hollywood blockbuster, it was also the first movie to earn US$100m (€68.75m) at the box office. Scheider starred with Richard Dreyfuss, who played an oceanographer.

                            In 2005, one of Scheider's most famous lines in the movie - "You're gonna need a bigger boat" - was voted number 35 on the American Film Institute's list of best quotes from US movies.

                            That year, some 30 years after Jaws premiered, hundreds of movie buffs flocked to Martha's Vineyard, off the south-eastern coast of Massachusetts, to celebrate the great white shark.

                            The island's JawsFest 05 also brought back some of the cast and crew, including screenwriter Carl Gottlieb and Peter Benchley, who wrote the novel that inspired Spielberg's classic. Spielberg, Scheider and Dreyfuss were absent.

                            Scheider was also politically active. He participated in rallies protesting over US military action in Iraq, including a massive New York demonstration in March 2003 that police said drew 125,000 chanting activists.

                            "He was a wonderful guy. He was what I call 'a knockaround actor'," ‘Jaws’ co-star Dreyfuss said today.

                            "A knockaround actor to me is a compliment that means a professional that lives the life of a professional actor and doesn't yell and scream at the fates and does his job and does it as well as he can," he said.

                            Dreyfuss recalled a time during the filming of ‘Jaws’ when Scheider disappeared from the set. As the filming was on hold because of the weather, Scheider "called me up and said: 'You don't know where I am if they call'.

                            "He'd gone to get a tan. He was really very tan-addicted. That was due to a childhood affliction where he was in bed for a long time. For him being tan was being healthy," Dreyfuss said.

                            He said Scheider "was a pretty civilised human being - you can't ask for much more than that".




                              Roy Loughead former IRFU president has gone to a happier place aged 72

                              A life-long member of Bangor Rugby Club, Roy was a redoubtable prop in his playing days before moving into rugby administration where his integrity and diplomacy won over many friends.

                              During his playing days, he captained the then junior side Bangor to Towns’ Cup success in the early Sixties and along with the late Ronnie Boston and Con McCall was a guiding light as the seaside town moved into the senior ranks in 1969.

                              They quickly made their mark after joining the elite with their famous midweek Bass Boston Floodlit tournament and then winning the first of six Ulster League titles in 1975 and including a hat-trick of successes between 1981-83.

                              Roy was schooled at Bangor Grammar before becoming a teacher and for many years was Principal of Sullivan Upper Preparatory department in Holywood, County Down.

                              Following retirement from the game he went into rugby administration and into the schools’ system. He was an Irish Schools’ selector and also was manager of numerous touring teams.

                              He became Ulster Branch (IRFU) President in the 1981/82 season and served as IRFU President for the 2001/02 season, the first to have received that honour from the Bangor club.

                              He is survived by his wife Joan, daughters Mandy and Jane and son Jonathan.

                              The committee and staff of theIrish Rugby Football Union offers their condolences to his family and friends.

                                <h1>Two rare eagles found dead in Kerry</h1>

                                Two of the White-tailed Eagles reintroduced into Ireland last August have been found dead in west Kerry.

                                The National Parks and Wildlife Service became anxious yesterday
                                afternoon when the two birds' transmitters remained stationary for too

                                Allan Mee, who is managing the reintroduction of the birds to
                                Ireland, found one of the birds at around 5pm yesterday afternoon at an
                                undisclosed location on the Iveragh Peninsula.

                                The second bird was found close-by this morning.

                                It is not yet known how the two birds died.There are concerns that
                                they may have been poisoned, but it could be several weeks before this
                                can be confirmed.

                                The White-tailed Eagle disappeared from Ireland more than 100 years
                                ago but a scheme to reintroduce the native birds of prey to Ireland
                                began last year.

                                There was some controversy when the chicks first arrived into
                                Ireland from Norway last June. Despite assurances, around 50 farmers
                                protested at Kerry airport over fears that the birds would prey on
                                their lambs.
