    Interesting that the tweet was written in Her Majesty’s English.
    An American would write “Breaking: Two explosions at White House, Obama injured”.

    Guido Fawkes says:

    “One hacked tweet yesterday and the DOW plunges 100 points, only to regain it all in a matter of minutes. The AP twitter account has been restored this afternoon, the offending tweet deleted, and normality returns to the markets…”

    A brilliant non-story, then?

    Not for the trader(s) who has now retired.

    Wouldn’t be surprised if organised crime is heavily into these market moving scams.

    Peter Martin says:

    As order is restored, I can’t help but reflect on the fact that the MSM (including our national broadcaster) appears to rely on such as twitter to source and then redistribute ‘the news’.

    Nothing to worry about there, then.

    No doubt a shedload of stop-losses should have been triggered? Which would itself have triggered further falls?

    Ha ha yeah right. A Dave is a Z- backed CDS backed up by spin and bluster.

    Sell the Millibands though they are toxic.

    Newsnight gaffes again says:

    Fans of The Stranglers have reacted angrily after mistakenly believing that the original line-up of the band had reformed following a BBC report.

    Newsnight showed footage of Hugh Cornwell leading the band he left in 1990 when previewing the BBC Proms last night (April 23). Eager fans went to buy tickets to the event, which has traditionally been a showcase of the nation’s best classical music, thinking that the punk band’s old line-up were set to reunite. However, fans were mistaken and Cornwell has not reunited with his former bandmates. Releasing a statement, a BBC spokesperson states that they are “not responsible for the current line-up of The Stranglers”.

    This year’s Proms, which describes itself as the ‘World’s Greatest Classical Music Event,’ has diversified and changed the format of the seven days’ performances and introducing rock and rap artists and DJs such as Steve Lamacq as well as artists such as Laura Mvula, N-Dubz rapper Fazer and Maverick Sabre to join composers and symphonies on the hallowed bill.

    The Stranglers formed in Surrey in 1974 and achieved worldwide success with their 1981 single, ‘Golden Brown’. Their career spanned 17 albums before Hugh Cornwell left in 1990.

    I’ve got an option on Farage, but short term. I’ll sell after the May elections. Probably clean up.

    Miliband looks a poor choice. Dave looks worse. But a Balls coup in 2017 seems a possible.

Boris on British Jihadis. Apparently based on MI5 intel:

“If you look at all the psychological profiling about bombers, they typically will look at porn. They are literally w***ers. Severe onanists. They are tortured. They will be very badly adjusted in their relations with women, and that is a symptom of their feeling of being failures and that the world is against them. They are not making it with girls, and so they turn to other forms of spiritual comfort — which of course is no comfort.”
