OMG, say it ain’t so, the Queen (yes, Elizabeth, Charles’ mom) is rumored to have asked the British government for money from a fund for the poor to help keep her palaces warm. She got the “hell no” because officials feared it would spell a PR disaster for the monarch (ya think?). Damn shame they couldn’t block the freedom of information legislation! Despite getting £15 million in state grants for the upkeep of her palaces per year the rising cost of gas and electricity forced her to beg for “more please”. Royal aides inquired if it was possible to dig into the coffers of a government scheme that was set up to help people on low income, to pay for four new heat and power units at Buckingham Palace and Windsor Castle. I bet you Fergie is snickering as we speak!

An asylum seeker who got rejected because he used a fake passport is suing the British Government for £150,000 for breaching his human rights and damaging his health.When Fridoon Sadiqi from Afghanistan entered Britain under false documents in 1999 his application was rejected and so to every other application and appeal he tried there after. Using every legal avenue available to him Sadiqi has managed to stay in Britain for 10 years fighting the immigration ruling. In all that time he has spent only 3 weeks in a detention centre, the rest a free man. But it is those three week in which he is claiming he suffered post traumatic stress disorder. In response to his latest legal battle Conservative MP Ann Widdecombe said ‘If his treatment has been so bad here, then why doesn’t he find another country to go claim asylum in?’
Psst Lets see him try getting £150,000 from the Taliban ,aren’t they ones who got him in this mess in the first place. More friggin stress there , I say!
