    The girl would have been 14 when her mum died (13 when the accident happened). So should already have been on someones books.

    All report say is there was an open verdict.

    Still have no idea of what possible charges will be.

    Lambeth lost track of half the properties it owned - no surprise that children also got 'lost'.

    The open verdict is open - it doesn't mean not a suicide.
    Presumably the police will be investigating. But after all this time there will be scant evidence. The Malaysian woman may be the key to unravelling it all.

    You could start a branch of Naxalites. Been popular in India for years: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Naxalite
    The name has the added advantage that is sounds as though it has Bob Marley links.

    Old Comrade Bala was almost right about one thing: that the Chinese would invade London. Only problem is they're armed with cheque books rather than guns!

    Comrade Bala is not incarcerated neither has he been charged with any offence.

    If you watch that video, there are squadrons of female soldiers in miniskirts. I'm not sure if the US or British armies have any miniskirt squadrons.

    I wonder if miniskirts are better or worse for overall fighting?

    Having had a child in Lambeth in the past 5 years I can tell you the post-natal 'care' is almost non-existent. We had one health visitor come round who was useless and lectured us about how we should ignore the baby if it cried and that was it, not one single other visit, letter, nothing.

    Considering how bad the HV was we were quite happy with that.

    If you look competent they leave you alone.

    I share your sentiments about Nick Cohen, it's a good article and i am surprised he wrote it.

    Went to a lecture by this guy at Conway Hall this morning.
    The Last Night-f.jpg Federico thinks work is an evil cult - and I can't say I disagree.
    Some of the Conway Hall regulars were a bit put out - "You're supposed to be lecturing on atheism!"
    "How can you be an atheist if you believe in an artificial construct like work?" was his response.

    I agree I think its a bit harsh to lump them in with cults.

    it looks like youve quoted a very unreliable source old chap, and a quick scan through its articles tells me its very heavy on the old anti chinese propaganda.

    The articles claim that theres never been a female militia is flatly contradicted by the constant existence of these female militia recruitment posters that go back decades.

    http://chineseposters.net/themes/womens-militia.php

    and according to this article the Clang Roses..or versions thereof...have been marching in that parade as an all female militia unit since 1958

    http://www.zonaeuropa.com/20091002_1.htm

    it wouldnt surprise me in the slightest if the chinese have stuck a few more photogenic types out front for publicity purposes but the claim theres no female militia units is very easily contradicted by numerous military related articles and photographic evidence . Female army and militia units have always been a feature of communist states going back a very long time. Especially China, who adoted the slogan of everyones a soldier back in the 1950s .

    As I recall my thought at the time, it wasn't that there were no female units in the PLA. More that that particular miniskirted formation had more to do with public relations.

    i agree its much too photogenic to be totally kosher but the guys article states clearly

    so as thats so demonstrably off the mark i wouldnt listen to a word of what he says afterwards . I think its more likely they simply told all the homely types to stay at home on the day and promoted a few others to the front not entirely on military prowess. The population is massive as massive can be and theyve a pretty big pool of female militia to select from for the photo opportunity .
