News in Brief 24/02/11

Britain is expected to have extracted all of it's citizens from Libya by this afternoon in it's final flight from the country's capital Tripoli. Over the last few days Britain has been extracting EU citizens from Libya using commercial airplanes and military aircraft such as the 'Hercules' gunship and the AC-130. Yesterday a Royal Navy battleship extracted over 200 people of European decent as well as citizens of New Zealand as their authorities deal with the current earthquake crisis.

New Zealand
The earth death toll now stands at 144 with 200 people still reported missing. The Prime Minister John Key has accepted that rescue workers are now looking for bodies in the wreckage and are longer expecting to find survivors, after meeting with the relatives of those reported missing the PM released a statement saying "I think its fair to say they fear the worst but there is still a glimmer of hope."

The London restaurant, Convent Garden has added a new product to it's menu, an ice cream made entirely from breast milk. The ice cream 'Baby Gaga' is churned from the breast milk of local resident, Victoria Hilet, who hopes that the new ice cream will encourage more women to breast feed. The man behind the new ice cream, Matt o'Conner has said "Some people will hear about it and go yuck - but actually it's pure organic, free-range and totally natural"

In an attempt to counteract the increasing levels of cyber-crime, the British government have set up a new website with the National Fraud Authority (NFA) for people to forward all their 'scam' emails to. The hope behind the new scheme is to give the NFA "unprecedented information about criminal activity", for more information visit the site Action Fraud.

-What are your opinions?


  1. Hmm I heard about the Convent garden on the news the other day.... breast milk... Seriously? Err

  2. the situation in libya is going fast towards civil war

  3. Crazy stuff going on in the world, shame really.

  4. breast milk ice cream. IM going to vomit

  5. Good that other countries have taken the citizens in Libya.

    Also the New Zealand earthquake may very well be the darkest day for us. One good thing is we no longer have to do the census forms...

  6. What is Victoria's child having for dinner if she gives all her milk to ice-cream?

  7. FilmAdviser: Breastmilk is a supply and demand thing. the more demand the more supply. So the more she cranks out the more she's gonna make, it's perfectly ok.

    I wouldn't eat the breastmilk of some other woman...but I have had to consume my own. Kraft dinner...had no milk or butter to make the sauce with so...had to mix in my own.

  8. Breast milk ice cream. I'll pass and stick to cows milk

  9. Hmmm I'm also gonna skip out on the breast milk^. I will however partake in extracting it lol.

    Thats sad whats happening in New Zealand, my grandparents live there. Fortunately they were unaffected.
