How dare he??? 😡 Players don’t leave Man U, Man U leaves players!!! 👿 👿 👿
Alright alright, everybody calm down! I’m only joking.
Blog editor: “Everybody calm down”? Isn’t that what Cenk Uygur is always saying?
(Cenk Uygur is pronounced “Jenk Yu-gar”)
Moja: You mean Cenk Uygur, the host of The Young Turks, the best political & entertainment show on the web and the leader of the TYT Army? Yes, I’m borrowing one of his lines. And I intend to borrow more of them in the future.
Blog editor: Just stick to one point. You were talking about Rooney…
Moja: Oh yeah, Rooney.
I think players have the right to move on to another club if they want to. People are always leaving their jobs to get better ones elsewhere, and no-one should be surprised to learn that football players want to do the same. <— Blog editor: Long sentence!
I hope Rooney stays at Manchester United, but if he does decide to leave, I wish him all the best.

From the BBC News website:
“Rescuers have drilled through to the underground chamber where 33 Chilean miners have been trapped since August. The breakthrough at the San Jose mine came shortly after 0800 local time (1200 GMT), sparking celebrations. It means efforts to remove the miners through the tunnel should begin within days.”

This is wonderful news. Every time I hear about the miners, I keep hoping that they all make it out alive. They have been trapped deep underground since 5 August, and they initially lost contact with the outside world for 17 days! It’s hard to imagine how they are feeling. I hope they all become millionaires when they return to the surface.
Lots of annoying little things have been happening at the moment. Some of the things have no major bearing on my life. These include:
- Alonso winning the Singapore Grand Prix and Lewis Hamilton crashing out (again!).
- Manchester United dropping two points against Bolton at the weekend, thus failing to capitalise on Chelsea losing to Manchester City.
- Ronnie O’Sullivan losing the World Open final to Neil Robertson.
Some of them might have a bearing on my life:
- Ed Miliband becoming the new leader of the Labour Party.
- Ed Miliband entering the race in the first place!
- The Labour Party losing David Miliband from front-line politics.
The other things are really irritating!
I have to find a new flat by 6th October. I started looking for places on Gumtree, but one of my friends recommended MoveFlat. He said that Gumtree was used by “time-wasters” and people from two countries in particular (let’s just call them ” Country A” and “Country S”).
I checked MoveFlat in the morning, and realised it was much better than Gumtree. The adverts seem a lot clearer and they were all displayed neatly on one page. I went away to clean my flat (as you do), and tried to use MoveFlat in the afternoon. No joy! It had crashed!!!!
Blog editor: It’s September. It’s probably all those new students out there.
Moja: %£@#$! students!!! 😡
I kept trying it, but it failed to load, so I used Gumtree. I know Gumtree works well, and I’ve used it in the past. I was just frustrated that I couldn’t use MoveFlat. I called an estate agent about an ad I saw for a place in the docklands, but the property had already gone. They told me about another place, so I went over to see it. There were two places actually. One was too expensive (even though they knew my budget) and the other place was way too dirty. It was frustrating.
There are other annoying things happening at the moment, but I’ll leave them for another day. I planned to watch The Hangover to cheer me up, but I ended up watching a couple of programmes on BBC One instead.
- ‘Tony Blair’ asks what people think about his new book ‘A Journey’
- ‘The Pope’ asks what people thought of his recent trip to the UK, and
- A panel member asks how many animals the average person eats in a lifetime (Ans = 2,400 animals)
I also watched the first two episodes of Damages. It’s an excellent TV series about a brilliant lawyer called Patty Hewes (Glenn Close), a young lawyer she is training Ellen Parsons (Rose Byrne) and the other lawyers who work at Patty’s law firm. Patty is very scheming and very ruthless, but she gets the job done. The case they’re working on is big and complex, and according to Wikipedia, lasts for the whole of the first series. It’s really good, and I highly recommend it.
Blog editor: Don’t you think the title of today’s post is a bit inappropriate? It’s not exactly ‘mini’, is it?
Moja: Good point! Let’s end it here.
Blog editor: Did you just hear what I said?
Moja: Good night!
There were four rounds of voting, and the lowest person dropped out at each round. Diane Abbott went out first. Next was Andy Burnham. Ed Balls dropped out in the third round. The votes of each defeated candidate was distributed to the remaining candidates. David Miliband was in the lead in the first three rounds, but his brother Ed won the final round with 51% of the votes.
The five contenders already knew the result as they walked out into the hall where the rest of the party were seated. David Miliband had a huge smile on his face while his younger brother Ed looked sombre (as he reflected on his stunning victory). The other contenders looked impassive, so it was hard to tell Ed had won.
There was loud gasp when everyone realised that David Miliband, the favourite (and supposed leader-in-waitng) had been defeated. Most of the Labour MPs, MEPs and party members voted for David, but Ed won large amounts of the union votes. He ran a left-leaning campaign, calling for an abolition of tuition fees and…
Ok, I need to go to bed so I’ll have to finish this tomorrow. I just want to quickly say how sorry I feel for David Miliband because it must be really tough to lose to your younger brother.
