Well it's a 16 page comic book - not a magazine like Private Eye.
Breaking news of a shooting at a Jewish supermarket in Paris...! They need to catch these fuckers and everyone connected asap...
fucking hell, will all this just stop
meanwhile Boko Haram destroys a village in Nigeria and kills 2000. holy shit this year
Apparently a hostage has been taken at the jewish grocery store, and the hostage taker is the same guy who shot dead the policewoman yesterday
Apparently 5 hostages are being held captive in the shop.
Well this is all going swimmingly.
Salman Rushdie issued the following statement:
Parisian siege allegedly holding women and children until siege is lifted on the first two. Very tense...
There's now a death toll at the supermarket.
Fucking Hell. It's times like this I think Martha Jones really should have used that Osterhagen Key.
What is wrong with these utter fucking spastics? Just KILL YOURSELVES.
Two reported dead in hostage situation in Paris kosher supermarket.
Gunman in Paris store linked to killing of policewoman yesterday.
Links also established between that killer and the Charlie Hedbo gunmen.
Separate hostage situation in Danmartin-en-Goele, northeast of Paris where police are trying to ‘neutralise’ the Charlie Hebdo suspects .
One person has been taken hostage by the Kouachi brothers.
Police have made contact with them, while schools in the area have been evacuated.
The latest from AFP on those two shop suspects – who are they were named as Amedy Coulibaly, 32, and Hayat Boumeddiene, 26, and are considered “armed and dangerous”. At least two people have been killed in the stand-off at the grocery store, according to official sources.
France24 reports that Coulibaly is linked to the two attackers in the Charlie Hebdo massacre.
something new seems to be happening at Trocadero station near the Eiffel Tower
False alarm dear, do keep up. Mind you, you'd expect this kind of thing...
Looks like things are coming to an end... BBC are showing police entering the supermarket...
And there's been explosions at the Printworks...
And they're dead.
So the brothers have been killed. Shame - rotting in jail for the rest of their lives, without martyrdom, would have been a harsher punishment.
French Interior Ministry denying reports that 2 people were killed at the grocery. What's happening there now?
I've just booked a holiday to a muslim country as a big FUCK YOU to the nutters.
The other one's dead too.
Explosions heard at the deli - some hostages seen escaping. I hope the Interior Ministry denials that other hostages had been killed are true.
France is having a 'march of unity' this Sunday. The Front National have been asked to stay away - Marine Le Pen capitalising on this already, claiming that the powers that be are trying to use French grief for their own gain.
I loathe her and her party but I think it's a mistake to keep them away - they are currently the most popular party in French polls and they will use this to further stoke up anger and hatred.
Quite. I believe in the right to say it all but it doesn't mean I'm going to put SHIT SATIRE on a pedestal, especially when so much of the humour is just bollocks stereotypes.
That's a pretty good conclusion by the French security forces. Bring on the fight against the tsunami of crap this is going to stimulate.
Although four dead at the supermarket apparently. Three days, 20 dead, three of those hostages...
I've just defriended this middle-aged slag on Facebook for stating that she thinks it's perfectly OK to monitor all muslims, because during the 1980s there was a report made to the police in the Home Counties about an Irish guy renting a room on a week by week basis. The police ignored it and 2 months later there was an IRA bomb on a trainline 12 miles away.
With good timing, Abu Hamza has been jailed for life.
BBC are reporting another hostage situation in southern France, in a jewelry shop.
Thank god there wasn't 24 hour news when the IRA were in their prime.
Shit. What's that about?
Although the IRA comparison is not all that accurate - their attacks were often warned about in advance, and they were a specific fairly small group. These terrorists are so much more random and unmonitorable.
I comfort myself by thinking that these attacks are horrific but random and unlikely, and that car accidents kill more people than these folk ever could.
Then I buy a cooked rotisserie chicken from the Egyptian butcher on the corner. And eat the entire thing in 1 sitting.
You even ate the bones?
I wasn't comparing the IRA to the islamic supremacist brigade but had there been 24 hour news and twitter when Gerry and Martin were in action they'd have milked it for all it was worth.
They got off easy.
Morocco. I thought I'd get that out of the way before I visit Israel, just in case they check the stamps in my passport.
I really want to go to Israel but I feel the same way about blocking myself off for being able to visit various despot regimes round the world.
However, so an Israeli tells me, the security forces on the Israeli border love asking grilling inappropriate questions, especially if you've been to enemy countries. I'm looking forward to it.
It's a cross we have to bear, just like Jesus did.
You can always get a new passport.
Very true. Although I'd also like a Cypriot one. Dual nationality would suit me.
Indeed, I went to Iran in 2006 and renewed my pasport for a trip to Israel in 2007 and no questions were asked.
