Couple of links you might be interested in Stef,

The government has been accused of trampling on individual liberties by proposing wide-ranging new powers for bailiffs to break into homes and to use “reasonable force” against householders who try to protect their valuables.


Under the regulations, bailiffs for private firms would for the first time be given permission to restrain or pin down householders. They would also be able to force their way into homes to seize property to pay off debts, such as unpaid credit card bills and loans.

Richard Timney has had a series of angry letters published in the Redditch Advertiser in Worcestershire attacking the Tories over schools and backing Ms Smith’s controversial identity-cards plan.

But he conveniently neglected to point out that his wife Ms Smith, 46, MP for the marginal seat of Redditch and a former Schools Minister, was responsible for both policies. Nor did he say that he is paid £40,000 a year as her Commons adviser.

There is absolutely nothing new there.They have been doing that for years in Scotland.

If you are seriously in arrears the bailiffs(usually big bastards come round.Kick your door in throw you by the scruff of the neck out yer kicked in door and then throw everything you own out in the garden .Seen it happen.No mercy.

The post-Cold War world led by America alone has come to an end. This perception is now shared by many experts in and outside the U.S. But whether the countrys new leadership is ready to sacrifice the role of global hegemon is still a question.

Rene-Thierry Magon de la Villehuchet, a founder of the hedge fund Access International Advisors, was found dead early Tuesday in his office in Manhattan, the French business daily La Tribune reported on its Web site, after losing as much as $1.4 billion that had been invested with Bernard L. Madoff, the money manager accused of running a $50 billion Ponzi scheme. Mr. de la Villehuchet, 65, committed suicide, La Tribune said, citing a someone close to Mr. de la Villehuchet.

Mr. de la Villehuchet had been trying to recover the money that Access International raised in Europe and invested through Mr. Madoff’s business, La Tribune reported.

Paramedics responded to a call at a Manhattan address matching that of Access International, people briefed on the situation told DealBook. They found a victim, whom they pronounced dead, but have not yet identified the man.

The answer to that question is two letters long and doesn't have a Y in it

Re: Van Anraat Puzzle.

There are several plausible reasons that could solve the puzzle.
