A forum question that popped up, thanks to Robin Goad @ Hitwise for providing the research.

The table below lists the top 10 search engines in the UK during the same 4 week period. By applying the percentage of UK specific searches to Google UK’s market share and creating a ‘new’ search engine, "Google UK Pages from UK only", it would be the third largest in the UK with a market share of 10.03%, behind "Google UK All The Web" and This 'new' search engine, consisting of Google searchers only looking at UK pages, would have a market share more than three times that of its nearest non-Google competitor, Yahoo! UK.

MP's call for ban on cheap alcohol promotions

Another stunningly bad idea.

So MP's are calling for a ban on cheap alcohol promotions.

I don't have the golden answer to the alleged 'drinking problem' Britain has but the above isn't the solution. One might want to look behind the alcohol, quite away behind it to find the root of the problem.

Let me take you back a few years, to the time of William Hogarth (1697-1764)

Gin Lane and Beer Alley.

Haven't we travelled far?

Trump, Aberdeen and very bad hair

So, Donald. Have you been to Aberdeen before? Of course you have. So you'll know that it's gie windy up there on the sand dunes.

Which begs the question. Is there no-one in your inner circle of friends with enough balls to tell you your hair is fucking ridiculous?

Get it cut. You look like a twat.

Oh hold on, it might not be the hair.

They may take you seriously in the US, but over here, trust me, they will rip you to fucking shreds - I'm already importing Trump wigs from China which I believe maybe the saving grace to the banking system in Scotland. Possibly the whole nation's debt.

You can ride into the capital with me as the great saviour - but not with that *Barnet.

No way.
