Yeah I thought it was very cool, all you need is the up and down arrow keys, or the scroll wheel.

What do you normally use?

The up and down arrow keys, or the scroll wheel.

EDIT - And PAGE UP and PAGE DOWN for bigger jumps. And HOME and END sometimes, I think.

Whatever the case, I thought it was a nicely designed webpage, although I would have to explain it to my in-laws if I were to send them a link, which sort of spoils it a bit.

On Friday the House of Lords debated Baroness Kennedy's bill to restrict entry to the country to those who are ' known to be, or to have been, involved in conduct constituting the commission of a gross human rights abuse or violation'. This is basically referring to those Russians already facing sanctions here, in the US, and elsewhere - a Magnitsky Act.

It's a very good debate and worth reading if you want something positive in politics. It'll be interesting how far it progresses: the minister's response was a bit lukewarm.

This is an excellent, if thoroughly depressing, review of all the ways Millennials are thoroughly and dangerously screwed by the modern housing, jobs, and healthcare systems. It's written about America but Britain is not so different, I fear.


This was my mate's comment about it. He's a very wealthy banker.

This makes me so angry. When Hammond touts his unemployment figures, these are the people he’s sweeping under the carpet. It’s a disgrace.

(Click through for a short video interviewing some people who are homeless despite having zero-hour contract jobs.)

Racial division within Bradford is 'horrible state of affairs', warns scrutiny committee chairman.


I'm amazed comments are open on this article.

Have to say that this Bannon/Trump falling out is cheering me up a bit.

Definitely!

And now Mr Trump's team are trying to stop publication. Oh, this always goes well (for the publishers).

Good to hear that Mrs May is so keen to sort out the housing problem she's added 'Housing' to the name of the local government department and kept Sajid Javid on as minister.

PHILIP Davies has prompted laughter in the Commons this afternoon with a joke on Theresa May's Cabinet reshuffle.

MPs are now back in Westminster following the Christmas break and the outspoken Conservative Shipley MP joked he would need to "get in quick" with his question "before the Prime Minister's inevitable call".

His quip was met with amusement from fellow MPs.


Oh, how we laughed.

Trump said the US can get again into the Paris accord after the (very short) meeting with Norway's PM. I don't know what she said to him, but we should be grateful.

Anyway, the chance that Trump changes his mind again is almost 1.

He apparently changes his mind about things very easily when he's in a room with someone and then changes it back again just as quickly.

Mr Trump won't be visiting the UK because he doesn't like the new embassy. And not, of course, because he's worried he'll be as welcome as a hog roast at a vegan wedding.

In other news, the Radio 4 newsreader just said 'shithole'.

For what was believed to be the first time in history, a peer said “Cunt” while speaking in the House of Lords yesterday.

If I was at a vegan wedding I'd bloody love a hog roast.
