ShoesEXCLUSIVE: in a board meeting this week, Malaga airport executives have ruled that from the 1st of September 2018 shoes will not be permitted inside the terminal building. The ruling aims to speed up check in and arrival procedures, reduce potential security incidents, and increase comfort levels for customers.

Alfonso Pies from the Malaga Airport Customer Footwear Department says that it’s been a long time coming. “For years, customers have had to remove shoes at check in for security checks. This can be time consuming and unpleasant for airport staff. By banning all shoes inside the terminal we will be able to speed up check in and increase customer satisfaction levels”.

The new rule currently only applies to Malaga Airport. The new Malaga Merida Airport is not expected to introduce this policy

Bad Feet Flip FlopsAlfonso Pies suggests that British people have the worst feet.Customer ComfortThe new ruling isn’t just a security and safety measure though, it’s aimed at improving customer comfort. Senor Pies says “With the hot weather here on the Costa Del Sol, some customers suffer from extreme perspiration of the feet. Mainly British people. This can create an unpleasant odour, making the airport experience unpleasant for some visitors. By removing the shoes altogether, we will be able to eliminate the smell of camembert from the terminal, except around the French cheese shop, where it will be unavoidable”

.Shoe BinShoes can be left in these secure shoe deposit boxes for collection at a later date.Hygienic Protective Foot WrapsMembers of the public have expressed concern about being barefoot in the airport. Hygienic protective wraps (which will be sponsored by local businesses) will be provided for a small fee to anyone who wishes to keep their feet covered. These can be purchased at the main entrance to the airport, and will be permitted inside the building. Shoes must be placed inside luggage, or left outside the airport in special shoe racks where they can be retrieved upon leaving the building.

Hygienic Foot WrapsThese hygienic foot wraps (sponsored by local businesses) will be available for just ten euros.Improved Air QualitySome airport users have reacted positively to the news. Claire Bare lives is originally from Birmingham but now lives in Estepona. She told Costa Del Sol Update “I’m not from Birmingham actually, I’m from Solihull. I think this is great. There’s nothing worse than being surrounded by people with smelly feet in the airport. If no one is wearing shoes, it should really improve the air quality inside the building”

Brits Outraged However, not everyone is delighted about the new ruling. Anne Fernandez represents a group of expats who specialise in expressing outrage through a Facebook group. She said “My members are appalled by this news, they are outraged. It’s a ridiculous idea, it’s not safe, it won’t make anything better inside the airport. It’s just an excuse to rip people off, ten euros for what looks like a plastic bag to put on your feet. This is because of Brexit. It’s clearly a reaction to us taking back control”

.Bad FeetCustomers with inappropriate feet will be forced to buy a pedicure on their way into the airport.Compulsory PedicureCustomers whose feet are considered unsuitable for public display will be forced to have a compulsory pedicure on the way into the airport. This will cost €74. Any customers caught wearing shoes, or unofficial foot wraps inside Malaga airport will be subject to an on the spot fine between €80 and €240 depending on their nationality.Daniella Westbrook ArrestedIn a recent 24 hour trial of the footwear ban, British celebrity Daniella Westbrook refused to remove her shoes. She was subsequently arrested at Malaga Airport and detained at a local police station overnight. Miss. Westbrook’s agent has been unavailable for comment.

Daniella Westbrook Daniella Westbrook was recently arrested at Malaga Airport for refusing to remove her shoes.Enrique Tacón is chairman of the Malaga Airport Celebrity Shoe Removal Team. He says no one is exempt from the ruling. “This must be followed by everyone, even celebrities. We were disappointed that Miss. Westbrook wouldn’t remove her shoes, and had to arrest her. A famous A list television star like her should be setting an example”. Are you happy about going barefoot in Malaga airport?

CIA Nominee Haspel, Washington, USA – 09 May 2018

Being in Rome, Italy and thinking of Gina Haspel, the CIA nominee and admitted torturer who says her “moral conscience” has changed after the fact, seems most fitting. Wherever you go in central Rome, you can hear the screams and smell the blood of those tortured and killed by the Roman Empire and those who ably followed in their stead. And you can see the crumbled stones and the pathetic architectural remains of those who thought they had triumphed. Their triumph turned to dust, and their belated mea culpas, if and when they ever came, always rang as hollow as Gina Haspel’s, Lt. William Calley’s, and Adolph Eichmann’s excuses that…

Channel 4’s Meghan Markle ‘documentary’ claims she’s related to Jack the Ripper suspect

Channel 4’s Meghan Markle ‘documentary’ claims she’s related to Jack the Ripper suspectYahoo Movies UK Hanna Flint,Yahoo Movies UK Wed, 16 May 12:22 CEST Reactions Reblog on Tumblr Share Tweet Email

Meet the Markles claims Meghan is related to  Jack the Ripper suspect Channel 4 aired their Meghan Markle documentary on Tuesday night ahead of the royal wedding and it was quite the show.Hosted by YouTube star Amelia Dimoldenberg, Meet the Markles follows her on a mission to bag an invite to the big day by travelling to America and meeting some of her relatives.One of these relatives is US lawyer Jeff Mudgett, a distant cousin eight times removed, who claims they are descendants of Dr H.H. Holmes, who was suspected of being Jack the Ripper.Holmes has been dubbed ‘America’s first serial killer’, and some, like Mudgett, believe he was responsible for the brutal murders in London’s Whitechapel.His stateside murders were carried out at a hotel in Englewood near Chicago and he admitted to killing 27 people, though is accused of 200 more deaths.“We did a study with the FBI and CIA and Scotland Yard regarding handwriting analysis,” the lawyer says in the documentary. “‘It turns out [Holmes] was Jack the Ripper. This means Meghan is related to Jack the Ripper. I don’t think the Queen knows.”Viewers were left amused and confused by the show because of the dry presenting style of Dimoldenberg that has been compared to a cross between Louis Theroux and Debbie Morgan’s character Philomena Cunk.

Amy Schumer says it how it really is, the royal wedding, a dog show, it will suck.

Amy Schumer trolled as ‘jealous pig’ by royal fans over wedding remarks Amy Schumer  has been trolled over remarks she made about this weekend’s royal wedding.The comedian and actress spoke about her concern for Meghan Markle, who marries Prince Harry this weekend at Windsor Castle, saying that her wedding will ‘suck’.Schumer suggested that the expectations being laid on the US actress would become overwhelming, and that the day would not be her’s, comparing it to ‘a dog show’.“This poor girl,” Schumer told the Fitzy and Wippa radio show in Australia.“Your wedding, everyone says it’s your day. It’s your day. She’s like, no it’s not. She has to meet all these foreign dignitaries she’s never met before, there’s so much pressure. Can you imagine having a worse wedding?“That would suck. Her girls from high school aren’t going to be there. It’s like a parade, it’s like Westminster Dog Show.




Meghan Markle will begin bridal procession alone, meeting Prince Charles halfway.Prince Charles will walk Meghan down the aisle on Saturday 19th May. After much speculation as to who might take on the important BARKER’S role, it’s finally been confirmed that Prince Charles will be walking Meghan Markle halfway down the aisle tomorrow.Meghan’s father-in-law to be, will take on the role after her father, Thomas Markle, was declared unfit to do the job, .However, , Charles won’t walk Meghan the entire way.In the ultimate girl power move, the former minor actress will start her bridal procession solo and walk herself halfway down the decadent nave.Prince Charles will join Meghan as she reaches the Quire – where fellow members of the royal family will be seated – where he will then walk her down to the foot of the altar.

It will be the first time in regal history that a bride has broken the age-old tradition but Meghan is no stranger to screwing the royal rulebook.Kensington Palace confirmed the news, saying: “Ms. Meghan Markle has asked His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales to accompany her down the aisle of the Quire of St George’s Chapel on her Wedding Day.“The Prince of Wales is pleased to be able to welcome Ms. Markle to The Royal Family in this way.”

Odds on Prince Charles, 69, performing the duty today stood at 2/1 with Ladbrokes on Wednesday.Meghan, 36, and her father-in-law to be have met a handful of times since she first began dating Harry in July 2016.Harry was first thought to have introduced his then-girlfriend to his father in November 2016.

The pair then likely met multiple times throughout the year, before the pair announced their engagement in November 2017, where the future king said he was “thrilled I am tickerty boo about the news”.Meghan then joined Prince Charles, Camilla and the rest of the royal family for the Christmas Day celebrations at the Church of St Mary Magdalene.Punters had suspected it could be Prince Charles or Prince Phillip to walk Meghan down the aisle. Punters had suspected it could be Prince Charles or Prince Phillip to walk Meghan down the aisle.Interestingly, Prince Charles’ may have also played a big part in Harry and Meghan’s meeting in the first place: it’s thought that the pair were” set up” by Harry’s childhood sweetheart, Violet von Westenholz, whose father is also a close friend of Prince Charles.

Meghan Markle was confronted with a situation no bride wishes to face, confirming via the Palace that her father would not be attending the wedding.On Thursday, in Meghan’s first statement, she put a stop to the rumours of whether or not her 73-year-old father would walk her down the aisle on Saturday, saying: “I have always cared for my father and hope he can be given the space he needs to focus on his health.”She went on to say: “I would like to thank everyone who has offered generous messages of support. Please know how much Harry and I are looking forward to sharing this special day with you.”Thomas Markle allegedly  staged paparazzi photos of himself in the run-up to the ceremony being held at Windsor Castle on Saturday. A day later, American celebrity website TMZ reported that he had pulled out of the wedding because of the embarrassment caused by the images.

roll up! roll up! The greatest show on earth by the royal family since the royal its a knock out!A full cast of all singing all dancing ROYALS (WITH SOME MARKED EXCEPTIONS THOUGH, IT STILL WILL BE A JOLLY GAY OCCASION.)




Thomas Markle ‘will not fly to Meghan and Harry’s wedding after suffering a heart attack!

Prolonged Occupation or Illegal Occupant?

michael_lynk Special Rapporteur S. Michael Lynk

Professor Michael Lynk’s commentary was first published on May 16, 2018 on EJIL: Talk! …. the Blog of the European Journal of International Law.  He raises a novel argument — that the international legal community should consider whether or not Israel’s prolonged occupation of Palestine has crossed some legal line, resulting in an illegal occupation. Professor Lynk posits a 4-part test to determine the answer. His commentary is reprinted below in full.*

Michael Lynk is an associate professor at the Faculty of Law, Western University, London, Ontario, Canada. He teaches labour law, human rights law and constitutional law.
