Santander Posts £8.2bn Profits

The media and the Goverment would like you to think the recession is an act of God. Some natural disaster that no-one could predict. They paint the banks as victims that need to be bailed out. If Santander can make a huge profit it shows that it was mismangement and greed, on the part of banks, that has put us in to recession.

Piven Watch: Jeremy Begs Of Forgivenss



AFTER RENEGING on his promise to bring gal pal Ashley Chontos to the Golden Globes, Jeremy Piven begged for forgiveness -- with a ticket to the SAG Awards. "He had to fly to New York to make up with her," an insider says. "But she told her doorman not to let him up!" After some wining and dining -- plus a new gown, shoes and accessories -- Chontos caved. But it still wasn't a perfect night at the SAGs for the sometimes model. Snickers our insider: "She didn't even get to sit next to Jeremy!"

The Wrestler Comes Alive!...Maybe?

Rourke is heading to Wrestlemania!!!
Mickey Rourke's performance in Darren Aronofsky's fourth feature film 'The Wrestler has gained Golden Globe wins and Oscar nominations.  However, it isn't just the film industry praising the success of Rourke but also the wrestling world.  WWE have shown great interest in Rourke's participation in the forthcoming Wrestlemania 25 at Texas on April 5th.  Surprisingly Rourke has claimed with 'Access Hollywood' that he is all up for Wrestlemania, that legend Ric Flair is training him and his target is former champion and top heel Chris Jericho.


Rourke states "So come Wrestlemania 25 in Houston, I’m going to toss him around the ring like tossed salad. Chris Jericho, you better get in shape”.  Jericho replied the following night on Raw; “You are out of line. It’s one thing to play a wrestler in a movie, something entirely different to actually be one. Your comments offended me. You made a mistake. It’s the last thing that you and Ric Flair want to do, and that’s offend Chris Jericho.”For wrestling fans Wrestlemania 25 is already shaping into a huge event, 'Stone Cold' Steve Austin is rumored to wrestle his final match as he heads into WWE's own Hall of Fame the night before in Houston, Texas.
