      confused why government will do this

      In couple of days there will be a big protest outside Heathrow airport and according to the grape vine the protestors will be treated like terrorists. You know lock them up and forget about them.

      Many of us thought things will be different when Blair is gone however this is not to be, the sparks will fly early next week.

      Other than war in Iraq I don't see any other political reason to protest.

      The rebel nation attitude is dying as people put families and life before changing the world which is probably the right decision as the saying "one person can change the world has never been true".

      Bottom line is that world is run by rich business folk who rather have us buying their products than complaining about the pollution or anything else that is by product of consumer society.

      Acutally there are many things to protest about, world poverty, green issues, government policies etc. However it has to be noted that many of the opinions are formed by the way the media covers events and in most cases protestors are made to look fools or middle classes up to no good.

      We have arrived at this sad ending for the world of protesting as government doesn't want people to gather and criticise its conduct, even Brown is like Blair when it comes to people criticising him.

      Whereas physical protest is becoming less important, internet has taken over and governments are very scared of this. Internet sites can protest because only those who like protesting use these sites, average person doesn't want to know.

        Don't blame America for this

        One can never be 100% on issues like these. However if you look at 9/11 from logical point of view I don't think it was inside job.

        Over the years people running countries have done some very funny things. Even in America CIA has been doing all sorts of criminal acitivities from pushing drugs to political killings on American soil and abroad. Times have change though and in this day and age no government will kill its citizens to implement a strategy in this case invasion of Iraq for oil.

        America was attacked by Muslim extremists and no one else. These killers were aided by people from abroad and because of rich backers no one questioned the terrorists on their actions prior to the attack because it was very hard to think of such thing happening.

        America was attacked because it has done things abroad which have caused problems for many people and the extremists have got on this bandwagon to gain revenge or teach USA a lesson.

        I think America does lot of good as well as little bad and is not the only country to dictate matters of other countries. UK has done it in the past and so has France, and Russia is still doing it.

        I think 9/11 attack was wrong and it should never happen again.

          easy to use and very useful

          I use google as a search engine on the internet. Beside the search engine it offers a lot of other services.

          Next to web search icon is images, search for pictures on the net, next is news, click on this and you will find links to many news stories or type in news that interests you and you will find news about this from today, yesterday or from years ago. Next you will find products, lot of information about google here as well as information about any product you enter in the search. Groups and Scholar can give info about various things and more is all the services offered by google.

          The interface is very simple with a search box in the middle of the page with all the icons for services I mentioned about it. By clicking on any of these you will be taken to the next page with more information.

          Google is a billion dollar company, Very hard to imagine that it has made its name through search engine and all the other services built around this.

          I rate Google as one of the best sites on the internet. Searching is so much easier because of Google and of course so many other services built around it and most of these are free.

          Google does keep some information about the user on its systems for months if not years but I don't mind taking this risk as the service is first class.

            ban them

            Shouldn't the government be doing more checks when employing skill workers from abroad.

            Which other country in the world will accept doctors who normally work to save lives attempting to kill people to fulfil their moral duty to their god or whatever belief they have.

            Lot of doctors and nurses are recruited from abroad to meet skill shortage. However as recent events have indicated, driving vehicles into airports is not what I expect of doctors and nurses. These people worked for NHS with access to hundereds of patients and drugs which can cause damage. Bearing this in mind I don't think it is inappropriate to stop recruiting from Muslim countries which have problems with extremists. The ban could last for 5-10 years until the Al Queeda problem goes away.

            There is bound to be more problems caused by members of Al Queeda members. Thousands went to training camps in the North of Pakistan and they are now working in every sector of the industry.

            Travel to areas where terrorists have training camps should also be banned.

              why though?

              Males and Females do the same jobs yet in some jobs men get more money. Why is this?

              It is the society I think. Men were the original bread winners and this has remained, women are late entrants to the work place therefore have to play catch up.

              Legally there should never be this discrimination.

              What is quite funny is that some women are holding up the fort for men to pay less to women.

              Companies with good practices pay same wages. Go and work for John Lewis or Tesco and you will get same wage as man. Move higher up the ladder and into managerial roles and the pay becomes less for women.

              A woman has to be a very good manager to earn same amounts as men.

              Some women run companies and they pay less to their female workers. It is also the market forces, men don't take time off for having babies etc, although men can take unpaid leave. Maybe this is the reason, women have to take career breaks whereas men don't.

              I don't know what causes the pay discrepancies. I have just speculated on the causes. It is unfair to women because they are likely to work just as well as male workers.

                don't do it

                Sex is addictive for some people as is this site. Teenagers have sex either because they enjoy it or because other teenagers are doing it so their mate doesn’t feel left out.

                In any case it is the women or girls I suppose who live with consequences of having a child and looking after it.

                See there is no point in having a baby at such young age so wear a condom, take pills or use other contraceptive methods in order to avoid pregnancy.

                Teenager with baby is bad news. Change in living style, extra responsibilities etc when other teenagers are enjoying life to the max.

                Avoid teenager pregnancy by using contraceptive.

                Teenage mum is drain on welfare resources, on her family and herself.

                Teenage pregnancy is one thing that I won’t recommend on this site.

                    watch it but it is same as before

                    I felt cheated after watching Shrek the third. When you leave the cinema you will ask yourself was it all worth it because what you watch in this film you will see in the first two films. Shrek is grumpy, donkey is funny.

                    Only thing that is better is computer graphics. New characters are Arthur, geeky would be king and Merlin the magician.

                    Shrek has become a king, he doesn't like this so sets out to find the heir to the throne who turns out to be a geeky school boy.

                    The Donkey has babies with the dragon, not shown how it is done and Shrek also becomes a father.

                    Jokes are good, story is the same, more or less, computer graphics are much better than before.

                    Parents will feel cheated while children will enjoy the films with Shrek and donkey behaving as they did in two films before this.


                    If you have seen one Shrek film you have seen them all.

                    Shrek had two directors and seven writers. Jokes are ones which most people will find funny.

                      funny jokes

                      Jokes in order 1-5


                      A woman gets on a bus with her baby. The driver says: “That’s the ugliest baby I’ve ever seen. Ugh!” The woman sits down, fuming. She says to a man next to her: “The driver just insulted me!” The man says: “You tell him off, I’ll hold your monkey.”





                      Two weasels are sitting at a bar. One starts to insult the other. He screams: “I slept with your mother!” The bar gets quiet as everyone listens for what the other weasel will say. The first again yells: “I slept with your mother!” The other says: “Go home dad, you’re drunk.”





                      A little girl walks in to the lounge one Sunday morning where her Daddy is reading the paper.
                      "Where does poo come from?" she asks.
                      Father feeling a little perturbed that his 5 year old daughter is already asking difficult questions thinks for a moment and says:
                      "Well you know we just ate breakfast?"
                      "Yes," answers the girl.
                      "Well the food goes into our tummies and our bodies take out all the good stuff, and then whatever is left over comes out of our bottoms when we go to the toilet, and that is poo."
                      The little girl looks perplexed, and stares at him in stunned silence for a few seconds and asks:
                      "And Tigger?"





                      A rather attractive woman goes up to the bar in a quiet rural pub. She gestures alluringly to the barman who comes over immediately. When he arrives, she seductively signals that he should bring his face close to hers. When he does so, she begins to gently caress his beard which is full and bushy.

                      "Are you the manager?" she asks, softly stroking his face with both hands.

                      "Actually, no" he replies.

                      "Can you get him for me - I need to speak to him?" she asks, running her hands up beyond his beard and into his hair.

                      "I'm afraid I can't" breathes the barman - clearly aroused. "Is there anything I can do?"

                      "Yes there is. I need you to give him a message" she continues huskily, popping a couple of fingers into his mouth and allowing him to suck them gently. "Tell him that there is no toilet paper in the ladies room."






                      Paddy had been drinking at his local Dublin pub all day and most of the night celebrating St Patrick's Day.

                      Mick, the bartender says, "You'll not be drinking anymore tonight Paddy"

                      Paddy replies "Olroight Mick, I'll be on me way then."

                      Paddy spins around on his stool and steps off. He falls flat on his
                      face. Shoite" he says and pulls himself up by the stool and dusts
                      himself off. He takes a step towards the door and falls flat on his
                      face. Shoite, Shoite!" He looks to the doorway and thinks to himself that if he can just get to the door and some fresh air he'll be fine. He belly crawls to the door and shimmies up to the door frame.

                      He sticks his head outside and takes a deep breath of fresh air, feels much better and takes a step out onto the sidewalk and falls flat on his face. "... I'm fockin' focked," he says.

                      He can see his house just a few doors down, and crawls to the door, hauls himself up the door frame, opens the door and shimmies inside. He takes a look up the stairs and says "No fockin' way". He Crawls up the stairs to his bedroom door and says "I can make it to the bed." He takes a step into the room and falls flat on his face. He says "Fock it" and falls into bed.

                      The next morning, his wife, Jess, comes into the room carrying a cup of coffee and says, "Get up Paddy. Did you have a bit to drink Last night?".

                      Paddy says, "I did Jess. I was fockin' pissed. But how'd you know?"

                      "Mick phoned, you left your wheelchair at the pub."

                        Disadvantages

                        recommend all of these site

                        10 IMDB.com has the biggest range of catalogued information on the net about films and TV shows.

                        9 tv.com. Site full of facts and information about TV shows. I like it more than the above site because you can get movie information from any site.

                        8 eBay has gone down in my list. Can't buy bargain anymore and too many people on the site to con people and also there are far too many traders.

                        7 Thaidvd.biz. I buy DVD's from this site. Very cheap because it sells from Thailand. Everything I bought was sent to me on time and many items were far less than the prices in this country.

                        6 answers.yahoo.com.Ask any question and it will be answered by a friendly person. Often I read Q&A from other members.

                        5 Dooyoo.co.uk, site on which I post reviews and read reviews from other members here, some reviews are informative some are not. Use the site at least once a week if not more. Like movie reviews and some product reviews.

                        4 Amazon.co.uk. Retail giant like no other. Buy from Amazon at least once a month. Sells so many goods and prices are good too. Delivery is free.


                        3 Google.co.uk: started as a search engine, offers various other things now and the best search engine on the net, accurate information is key to this site. It offers images, maps, news etc

                        2 Wikipedia.com: access this site all the time to read information. It is online encyclopedia, free to use and quality information most of the time.

                        1 bbc.co.uk is simply the best site on the net. Watch TV shows read information.

                        1 Directgov joint top with BBC. It is government site which has all the information one needs from travel to anything else that government does or offers as service like DVLA, passports etc and of course tax.

                          he will be known for lies

                          Tony Blair served as Labour Party leader for 13 years and as Prime Minister for 10 years and 1 month.

                          Blair made huge impact on British politics.

                          Blair’s legacy will be tainted with his biggest error as a politician, getting involved in Iraq.

                          He lied to pave the way for British involvement. His lies have cost the nation hundreds of soldiers and a suicide attack in London which killed over 40 people.

                          To me Blair is an enigma. He was a more of a presentation politician than one of substance, that is public perception however he done many things which are good for the nation. Taking interest rate decision out of politicians hand was highlight of his career as previously Conservatives had screwed up the economy to get cheap votes. Blair invested billions in health, education and on fight against terrorism. The implementation of IT and centralising government systems was a major achievement.

                          Failures include immigration and asylum seekers continue to pour into the country. Blair’s love affair with George W Bush destroyed Blair’s reputation abroad.
                          Blair’s reliance on spin and giving out false information. He so far was the first British Prime Minister to be questioned by police while still in office.

                            fly easy jet

                            Easy Jet is airline which doesn't charge much to fly around UK or Europe. I had to fly out from Luton to Scotland. several times in the last two weeks, hence my absence from this site.

                            I was amazed at the price of ticket. It is cheaper than rail.

                            Flying with Easyjet is like sitting in a bus rather than a luxury coach, in this case it is flying coach I suppose. Luxury is not what I had in mind when I chose this airline. Journey is not long enough to consider food or other luxuries like a bottle to drink.

                            I am not bothered by that because the urgency is getting to the destination.

                            The plane took off within 20 minutes of advertised time. It wasn't packed as I had expected. I could breathe fresh air and I wasn't tired at the end of the journey despite the space within the plane. It wasn't too tight either, just right I suppose. Although I don't want to recommend it to business class users.

                            This airline is recommended for being just right for the pocket. Travel both ways was under £100. Which is perfect.

                              good for all

                              Education should be free for all. Educated people progress further in life and they are more likely to help the country and create jobs. Education gives you better understanding of things. People without degrees do well as well but in my opinion less of them do well in comparison to degree holders and it takes longer for them.

                              I know it is not possible to do free education for all. There are far too many people and there will be people who abuse the system. Still country will be better off with more degrees and training for everyone.

                              UK is falling behind other countries in education. This is bad for all of us.

                              Students coming out of uni have thousands of debts. Extra headache for those who don't get a well paid job.

                              Free education will create a class, those who don't go into further education will suffer in work place but this is a risk that should be taken because there will always be a class system of one kind or another.

                              Famous people who didn't complete education.

                              Alan Sugar
                              Richard Branson

                              World has changed and without education people struggle and not everyone is like the two guys above so there is no comparison.

                              I know what I have written will never happen as Blair is reducing costs all the time. Good idea in cash rich country.

                                You know Dooyoo is a community site. A community has different aspects to it. One thing that fascinates me is messages that people leave in your box.

                                Here is a collection of mine. Member names have been deleted.

                                I am probably lucky, haven’t got a nasty one yet. But at least one of these messages is strange. Which one is it?
                                ---------------------

                                “Hello, Just to let you know that I have enjoyed your last 2 reviews.”

                                and one from another member

                                “I hope you rate all mine too =) and i left a comment”

                                ----------------------

                                Desperados looking for more reads. I think this would put off many members. Not me I have read reviews and rated despite these types of comments.




                                Thinking of desperate people here is another one.

                                Hi, i have signed up to Caio and Dooyoo and am wondering what the rate is for a review on Dooyoo

                                Cheers


                                Absolutely valid question. No problem with this one.


                                Now from experienced Dooyoo members you will get something like this. Name has been removed.

                                ------------------------------
                                You know you could have rated my review while you were at it... And the messaging system indeed does work just fine, so you should just use it. Anyways:

                                Thanks for quoting Wikipedia, but I do know WHAT a comic book is, I just find the term itself silly. There are many such graphically drawn books that are in no way comic in the slightest, but the stance of "comic book" is always applied to all similarly executed books. The word comic instantly makes me think of funny, lightweight entertainment, totally unfit for serious storytelling, which indeed does exist in drawn books and animation.

                                Even the graphic novel term nowadays pretty much represents a single type of gritty and sketchily drawn violent stories that it can't really be applied to many other stories. In Japanese Manga there at least are several categories and sub-categories for the different types of stories to not be labeled under one single header and maybe something like this should be developed for Western art as well instead of just saying "comic book". Was 300 particularly "comic" to you then?


                                I leave the answer to the above message to you. One thing I can say for certain is that three errors exist in the last message Mr Vanity take note.

                                  How to rate on Dooyoo?

                                  Most important aspect of rating on Dooyoo is reading a review before rating it. Seriously if you don’t read how can you rate?

                                  Read a review and rate it according to merit. Don’t be put off by other member’s ratings and never do RR (dirty word in this community. It stands for Revenge Rating). RR readers would rate a perfectly respectable review “Not Useful” when everyone else has rated it “Very Useful”.

                                  You are the master of your ratings. Others won’t do it for you. I don’t know what the statistics are but most decent respectable members will rate your review because you have rate theirs.

                                  Leaving comments helps others to get to know you better. Leaving comment is perfectly acceptable as long as nothing negative is written although sometime strange phenomenon takes place when one Dooyoo members annoys another. In the comments section you will find comments longer than reviews, character assassination and loathing is common place in this situation.

                                  Finally just to recap it all, rate according to your judgement, never ever rate according to ratings you have received and please make an attempt to read reviews of fellow Dooyoo clan, rating provides the energy to turn the Dooyoo wheel.
