If no-one saw Geller's bizarre My Friend Michael Jackson I advise the first 3 minutes of this. I would say that tells you all you need to know about Uri.

That's fantastic. I think Uri Geller deserves a knighthood. If Steven Spielberg has one, after all . . .

"But can you imagine, Michael Jackson, doing the moonwalk, on the moon?!"

Chilling video report from Antwerp in the Dutch news this morning. A reporter takes a secret camera to a creche run by Nazis ("We are not Neo-Nazis. We are old Nazis. Do you know the difference?"), posing as a new father looking for a creche for his daughter. They have a photograph of Hitler on the wall and a bookcase packed with books about the Third Reich. The head of the creche explains her views without any hesitation.

"He was an intelligent man, of the sort that we need at this time. Because in those days, you see, the Jews owned all the businesses and all the properties and the real people were forced into smaller and smaller spaces. And now the same thing is happening with the Islam, the Turks and the Moroccans. We need another movement, like the Hitler Youth, to kick them out."

I'm English. We do cricket, and with cricket, when someone talks about memorable commentary we tend to think of getting one's leg over and extended giggling.

They are Americans. They do... they do... "baes-baaaahhl"? I dunno, something like that. And they, they have this.

I'd have embedded it, but I couldn't make it work.

Good old Berlusconi. States that his administration will "govern for five years with or without the law". Business as usual then...
