It's hard to know if we got the lesser of the two evils...
I'm sure every woman that has already been attracted by looking after children will come under such scrutiny :shock:

It's an appalling statement to make at all without considering that a. Men can and do in fact care for and love children in a platonic sense and b. Women can also be paedophiles. Look at the more recent case of Vanessa George for example. She wasn't the only woman involved. It was irrelevant men were also involved within that group.

At first glance, I read that as 'cum bucket'. I guess there's two more to add to your list! :D

Horrific. Hopefully prison will remove him from the parenting role for long enough that his son will be raised without having that sort of oblivious self justification ingrained in his thought processes.

Not in fact news but a funny spin on current events. There's a page on Facebook as well as the site (scoop alley) if anyone ever wants to have a gander. Passes the time!

Some of the 'rebel' soldiers are claiming they were unaware of what they were actually taking part in. What are your thoughts on the coup?

Erdogan's one step away from an extremist; however, coups are not right.

A secular extremist mind, but i don't think that is in the media's interest or vernacular.

Haven't followed the story very closely... but wasn't the coup justification that he was failing to uphold the countries secular tradition?

Yup. There's a very strong feeling in Turkey that the AKP are too far entrenched into Islamism.
