Nessie is a better-known Scot than Robert Burns or Sean Connery, according to a survey. More than 2,000 adults across the UK were asked to say who they believed to be Scotland's most famous figure. Can you believe that they voted for the Loch Ness monster over other people? The other names in the top 10 were William Wallace, Robbie Coltrane, Billy Connolly, Lorraine Kelly, Ewan McGregor and Lulu. (Who the f is Lulu man?????)
A Doncaster pub has the country's youngest bartender - Chris Hardacre, who is just 12 years old. The law now allows him to serve behind the bar - with adult supervision - but not to drink the profits.Regulars at the Star (which is the pub) said they liked the father-and-son combination, though all said Chris was better-looking than his dad.
Ivorian Prime Minister Charles Konan Banny has been accused by President Laurent Gbagbo of acting seditiously for publicly criticising him.The recent United Nations resolution 1721, which is designed to drive the war-divided country to free and fair elections, attempted to give more power to the prime minister.However, President Gbagbo said the resolution would not be carried out if it clashed with the Ivorian constitution.Since then Ivory Coast has been waiting for a trial of strength between the president and prime minister. Few would have expected it to come over the emotionally charged issue of the toxic waste scandal. (Fucking hell, toxic waste is an emotionally charged issue!!!)
