The British Economy Is Now 'Bigger Than Any Time In History'


David Cameron

The British economy has rebounded in leaps and bounds, after the financial crisis of 2008. A report in the London Evening Standard stated, “Britain’s economy is bigger than at any point in its history after a 0.8 per cent surge in growth finally lifted GDP above its pre-financial crisis peak. The achievement was hailed as "a major milestone" by Chancellor George Osborne and officially brings to an end the most prolonged slump on record.” 

Prime Minister David Cameron enacted cuts (the Judiciary Report advocated years ago) that were unpopular among some, but the British economy has experienced a turnaround. It would also be beneficial if Britain returned to its factory roots, producing more products on the level it did decades ago. 

Another report online stated London has overtaken New York as the top investment hub. Throughout the crisis, the British currency, the pound, stood strong and the housing market appreciated in value, particularly London, where home prices have reached new heights. 

The Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, has undertaken an initiative to build more housing in the capital to accommodate the demand. Some preservationists are against the plan. However, it is a practical one, as the demand has far exceeded what is currently available. There have also been new calls to expand impressive Heathrow Airport, the behemoth hub that has already undergone expansion to meet the demand.

British economy bigger than any time in history after 0.8% surge in growth

Published: 25 July 2014 - Updated: 16:21, 25 July 2014 - Britain’s economy is bigger than at any point in its history after a 0.8 per cent surge in growth finally lifted GDP above its pre-financial crisis peak. The achievement was hailed as "a major milestone" by Chancellor George Osborne and officially brings to an end the most prolonged slump on record. The solid rise in the second quarter of the year was in line with City forecasts and means that output is now 0.2 per cent higher than at the start of 2008 when the recession began… 

Coroner Confirms Peaches Geldof Died Of Heroin Overdose


Peaches Geldof

As stated on Twitter the day she died, socialite Peaches Geldof, died of a drug overdose at the age of 25. This week, a coroner’s report has confirmed this tragic fact. Geldof left behind a husband and two small children. She died much in the same way her late mother, Paula Yates did, from a heroin overdose. 


Peaches Geldof

Geldof's death highlights the dangers of drug use and how it runs through families. People must break the cycle, as the drug epidemic has claimed many lives in an ongoing pattern that needs to be addressed. The Judiciary Report is of the belief the answer lays in science.

Celebrities' children are often in danger of addiction, due to their parents lifestyle and the money they give them. Most celebrity parents are not thinking said income can cause their children to become addicted to drugs, but it has happened. For instance, Bobbi Kristina Brown, the daughter of the late singer, Whitney Houston, received $10,000 per month in allowance since age 12. Today she is hooked on drugs and in serious danger of dying early from an overdose if she does not get help.

Boxer Tyson Fury Says He Will Not Fight Dereck Chisora Next Month Nor Will He Attend Hearing Revoking His Boxing License

Undefeated Irish boxer Tyson Fury is on a roller coaster of emotions. His last three planned fights were cancelled after opponents pull out due to injury. Fury lost money on training camps and potential purses. The latest cancellation due to a wrist fracture is boxer Dereck Chisora, who stated their fight scheduled for tomorrow, can proceed in one month. However, Fury has changed his mind, refusing to fight him next month after the late cancellation this week. 

Fury stated, “As far as I'm concerned Dereck Chisora is history - finished. After I've done with this lummox in front of me (Ustinov) I want Bermane Stiverne for the WBC title. I'm not interested in Dereck Chisora, he ain't got enough credibility to lace my boots up, never mind step in the same ring. He's a s***house who dropped his b******s in training…I want to fight real fighters who want to fight. I started in a career in boxing to be involved in good fights, for people to say ‘yes (he) fought good fighters and didn't pick and choose.’”  

Alexander Ustinov (right) is Fury's next opponent scheduled for a fight in Manchester, England tomorrow. Fury is going into the fight with no sparring, where Ustinov has been sparring with world champion Wladimir Klitschko and Fury's former challenger Dereck Chisora. If Fury is not careful Ustinov will beat him. He has to bring his A game or face his first loss.

In other Fury news, he is refusing to appear before the British Boxing Board of Control, regarding a profanity filled press conference he conducted last week, which was also full of explicit sexual jokes, in the presence of men, women and children. The British Boxing Board of Control warned Fury they would revoke his license if he failed to appear. However, Fury says he will not attend the August 13, 2014 hearing. Fury shall use an Irish boxing license henceforth. 

Fury shouldn’t burn bridges in this manner. The Irish board will not promote that type of press conference either. All boards seek to make boxing family friendly. Fury is upset over career setbacks and it’s coming out the wrong way. However, he has a talent for boxing and should work within the system.

Rihanna's Friend Melissa Forde Stokes Reunion Rumors Between Chris Brown And Rihanna (Photo)

Melissa Forde, the lesbian girlfriend, personal assistant and lackey of singer, Rihanna, has sparked new reconciliation rumors online about the latter's on and off again boyfriend, Chris Brown. Brown and girlfriend Karrueche Tran, whom Rihanna despises out of jealousy over her having Brown, had a bit of a public tiff with him on Twitter this week over loyalty.


Chris Brown and Karrueche Tran

Rihanna, also known as Fivehead, saw an opportunity to do exactly what the Judiciary Report has insisted she has been trying to do behind the scenes for months, get back in with Chris Brown. Just as trouble surfaces between Brown and Tran, not even 24 hours later, Rihanna's messenger, Forde, posted a old photo of Rihanna and Chris Brown together when they were still together. 


Have you ever seen Melissa Forde (left) and Wesley Snipes (right) in the same room? Well, that's because they're the same person (LOL).

If Rihanna posted the photo, she'd get a nasty call from Jay Z, as well as complaints from the record company, some of her fans and members of the public, still focusing on the 2009 domestic violence incident between her and Brown. Why else would you have your personal assistant post a photo of you and your on and off again boyfriend.

Rapper T.I. Threatens To Kill Boxer Floyd Mayweather Over Wife Tiny


T.I. Sit Your "Rubberband" Butt Down!


Floyd Mayweather

The highest earning athlete in the world, lightweight boxing champion, Floyd Mayweather is used to hitting people in the ring. However, it looks like Mayweather hit adulterous rapper, T.I. where it hurts - his pride. T.I., real name Clifford Harris, became enraged when his wife, Tiny, spent time with Mayweather and his family in Las Vegas during a birthday event for the boxer's 14-year-old daughter.


Tiny and TI

T.I. attacked Mayweather, attempting to punch him but missed. It resulted in a fight between both entourages. This past weekend, Mayweather called T.I. a "b***h" stated he had sex with her. Shortly after, he retracted the statement, saying the public misheard. However, T.I.'s ego was still bruised and he wrote a diss track, "100 Rounds" issuing a death threat. The song is appalling. If Mayweather gets shot, you're the first person the public will point the finger at and you will go to prison.

Chris Brown And Karrueche Tran Subtweeting Each Other About Cheating

 

Chris Brown and Karrueche Tran

R&B singer, Chris Brown and his girlfriend, model, Karrueche Tran, have experienced their ups and downs. The two have broken up and gotten back together several times. Brown and Tran made tweets that has the public believing there is once again trouble in their relationship. 


Brown tweeted "Loyalty is everything." Something many have tweeted in the past (and present) as a general statement. However, Tran tweeted, "What's more important? Loyalty or your desires?" This is due to Brown backing away from a commitment and having had sex with others during their relationship. Brown fired back "What's more important? Your status or your heart. Ask yourself." 


Brown is preparing for trial in an assault case, scheduled to take place in Washington, DC. Tran has supported him throughout his troubles and feels she deserves a commitment after all she's experienced while sticking with him.

Whitney Houston's Mother Cissy Houston Slams Offensive Planned Lifetime Biopic

     

Legendary gospel singer, Cissy Houston, has slammed the Lifetime network's unauthorized biopic on the life of her late daughter, Whitney Houston. Lifetime is acting against the Houston's family's wishes forging ahead with the production. As stated previously in the column, the pre-production materials look bad. It does not look like a hit, but a hot mess. Not to mention, the angle that has been chosen for this film is downright disrespectful.


Cissy Houston stated, "Lifetime has chosen to go ahead with the movie about Whitney in spite of my family's objections. No one connected with this movie knew Whitney or anything about her relationship with Bobby. In the two years since Whitney's death, many people have stepped forward to speak about their close relationship with her. I find it difficult to believe people who knew and supposedly loved her would participate in a movie about her done by folks who didn't know her. We are exhausted by the continuing misinformation and comments offered by people who did not know her. Please please let her rest."

Tyson Fury Finds New Opponent To Replace Dereck Chisora

This week British boxer, Dereck Chisora, pulled out of a rematch against rival, Tyson Fury that was scheduled for July 26, 2014 in Manchester, England, citing a broken wrist. Chisora stated he broke his wrist during sparring against 300 pound, 6 foot 7 inch boxer, Alexander Ustinov. This left  Fury furious and searching for a replacement, as his last three fights have been cancelled, costing him a sizable sum in training camps.


Alexander Ustinov

Chisora's replacement has been announced and wait for it...it's Alexander Ustinov. That's right. Chisora's sparring partner. Fury is happy, as he is eager to fight again. However, Fury needs to be careful, because if given too much leeway, Ustinov, who is 29-1 in the ring, will beat him. Take him seriously in the ring and dispatch him as soon as possible or you could face your first loss as a pugilist.
