Ed Miliband MP, Leader of the Labour Party, writes in Tuesday’s edition of the Daily Mail:
It was June 1944 and the Allies were landing in Normandy. A 20-year old man, who had arrived in Britain as a refugee just four years earlier, was part of that fight. He was my father. Fighting the Nazis and…
This episode was brought to our attention by reader Sean R., who started his email with “While “Picard in Die Hard on the Enterprise” (aka Ep 6X18, Starship Mine (best title of the whole series)), might not entice you as it does me, how about the fact that he is wearing a horse-riding outfit the whole time?”
Sean. SEAN. While I appreciate the fact that you respect our position as a fashion blog, anything that can reasonably be described as “[someone awesome] in Die Hard in [a place]” is fine - nay, GREAT - by me.

Ruth Bader Ginsburg in Die Hard in Shake Shack.
RuPaul in Die Hard in the American Museum of Natural History.

I get fan-mail from time to time on Eurogamer. This is one I got tonight, edited to protect the angry.
I never reply, I just ban their latest account quietly. Although I do keep my fan-mail, it keeps me warm at night.
edit: Oh man, I just checked his original account. I banned it a month ago (along with the standard “you are banned” PM) and he’s been posting away since, with no-one able to see him! He’s clearly only just noticed tonight hahaha
If there is one sentence that campaigners against the awful Bedroom Tax hear time and time again, it’s the reply of “but it’s not a tax” repeated over and over again to anyone who may still be listening. In fact, it tends to be the only answer you ever get from supporters of this ridiculous…
Maybe we SHOULD call it the Bedroom Punishment. That makes it sound kinda sexy in a kinky way, therefore David Cameron will ban it to “protect the children”.
