Jobless Couple Wins £50,000 in the Lotto, Blows It All, Begs the Government for Help

If you won £50,000 in the lottery tomorrow, what would you do with it?
Well, no matter what you answer, you would have to try really hard to sound as stupid as the following story.

Jamie and Abbie Hort won £50,000 ($72,818 USD) in the Channel Islands Lottery in 2014. Somehow, they managed to blow through the whole amount in less than a year on what sounds like a bunch of crap. Trips, expensive dinners, designer clothes, and a 50? big screen TV.

After running out of cash and getting evicted twice, they ran to the government begging for help.

Where is the Yemeni revolution today?

They’d had enough. They’d had enough of the wars; they’d had enough of the corruption; they’d had enough of the forced destiny and having to look past their leader to find any hope on the horizon of their country reaching its full potential. In 2011, the people of the poorest Arab country began to protest against the rule of one of the richest dictators in modern history.

Cuban ‘Hellfire’ missile crisis: US wants rocket back after it was sent to Havana by mistake

Washington is having to work to retrieve a dummy US Hellfire missile used for NATO training in Spain after it was reportedly sent to Cuba by mistake. America fears that Cubans may steal the advanced technology.

The mishap occurred in 2014, as the missile was mistakenly shipped from Europe to Cuba, the Wall Street Journal reported.

Although the device can’t do any damage, as it doesn’t contain any explosives, there are fears the Cuban government could share the technology with foreign powers, such as North Korea or China. A US official with knowledge of the situation, who wanted to remain anonymous, confirmed the mishap to AP.

BBC denies deliberately undermining Corbyn by airing Doughty resignation

The controversy centers around a blog post, since deleted, in which it was claimed BBC political editor Laura Kuenssberg “sealed the deal” to get Doughty to resign on air.

The post, written by BBC producer Andrew Alexander, is alleged to have said: “Just before 9am we learned from Laura Kuenssberg, who comes on the program every Wednesday ahead of PMQs, that she was speaking to one junior shadow minister who was considering resigning.

“I wonder, mused our presenter Andrew Neil, if they would consider doing it live on the show?”

The proposition was then put to Kuenssberg, who though it a “great idea.”

“Within the hour we heard that Laura had sealed the deal,” Alexander wrote, adding, “we knew his resignation just before PMQs would be a dramatic moment with big political impact.”

This led to accusations that the BBC team, not Doughty, made the choice to air the resignation minutes before PMQs.
