To change the subject for an instant - this bridge that collapsed in Florida didn't anyone question the speed at which it was erected? Surely, if you build a bridge or walkway in under a week(I think it was) you would question the rigidity and whether that sort of structure is safe or not!

They replaced the railway bridge across Dalston Lane in East London in 2015. The station platform is on top of the bridge and the road goes under it. I expect you are familiar with the road and the bridge, GM.

The old bridge was removed and the new bridge was installed from pre-fabricated units in less than 48 hours to fit it in over a weekend and not cause rush hour chaos. So far, the new bridge appears to be doing exactly what it said on the tin.

Err no I am Norf Lunnun not East mate, but I'd bet on British engineering lasting a lot longer than US but it seems to me that something erected that quick must be thoroughly checked so I reckon either corners were cut OR they didn't check it properly.

I am surprised the FT has any journalists left, thought Blair sent them all to the house of Lords!

You may need to read the definition of what weather is and what is a climate trend first. The planet is warming from all evidence collected by thousands of reputable scientists.

About this woman winning 400M on the lottery in the USA surely it is time to cap winnings ?I find the notion someone can win such sums disconcerting. I find it akin to the way individuals earn inherited wealth, create a company and sell their shareholdings for enormous sums in speculative purchases by even bigger companies raising the stock price further and further when the actual genuine value of the company is far smaller.

Looks like South Africa could be on the precipice of doing what Zimbabwe did under the odious Mugabe. The new PM Ramaphosa agrees with mad Julius Malema who seems to have an ingrained hatred of white people. Namely land expropriation from white farmers. We saw what happened in Zimbabwe with agricultural production.

The ANC like political parties in trouble seem to be scapegoating this group considering that they have run South Africa into the ground, failed to provide for the masses especially their own electorate that got them into power with jobs and decent housing and have systematically robbed South Africa dry of resources with some notable business associates.

It's something that never gets reported on the BBC but every week at least one white farmer is murdered or a family member is attacked or raped with some particularly horrific cases in recent months. It is no wonder many have decided to leave but this 'ethnic' cleansing in the so called rainbow nation seems to be going on undeterred. Despite the fact that these people can in many cases trace back over three hundred years of settlement.

Yet another child abuse scandal in the UK. I do not think unfortunately it will be the last. Once again the victims are by and large vulnerable white schoolgirls from a working class background. And the perpetrators Pakistani men although this can land you into hot water despite the facts supporting your utterance as Sarah Champion found out when lambasted by Corbyn.

There does seem to be an issue with these men (I use the term loosely) as such cases have popped up in Rochdale, Oxford, Newcastle, Sheffield, Nottingham, Chelthenham and other areas and I have seen suspicious activity myself in Watford which I did report (nothing happened) and their view of these girls as infidel trash. They also target Hindu and Sikh girls where they can. It seems the police, politicians and social services in these cases seem almost frightened to take action for being labelled racist. If a crime if committed the racial origin of the perpetrator should make no difference as to their arrest and prosecution. It seems the system certainly over the last four decades has failed time and time again.

And coming on to a fairer society. Karen Millen is bankrupt. Unable to pay her tax bill of six million despite selling her business for thirty five million. The poor thing is having to sell her mansion to raise some of the money.

I have precious little sympathy for tax dodgers and I am amazed people in the UK look up to these so called leaders in society like Millen or sports heroes like Hamilton and other footballers who squirrel away millions in tax havens. Not to mention those poor BBC newsreaders now caught apparently having been forced by the Beeb to set up personal service companies.

And ironically that attitude also harms the overwhelming majority of Muslims, or people of Pakistani origin, who also totally abhor such crimes.

They get tarred with the same brush all too easily - whereas, if the perpetrators were all in jail, no finger could be wrongly pointed at them for any complicity or complacency. Those qualities are to be found only in the minds of some of our politicians and police.
