It's Leicester's to lose now, Spurs and Arsenal have a history of bottling it and i can see this happening to both. However all three top teams have a very hard set of matches to finish the season. Part of me wants the foxes to win it, whilst part of me feels it will upset the natural balance of football.

It's the same the world over, currency markets are in free fall, but the Yen is considered a safe haven so it's rising as everyone else is falling.
My currency has dropped 20% against the yen since Christmas, and whilst it wont stop me coming to Japan - the 20% drop hits the spending money i have.

A long overdue step, partly understandable from a domestic point as mobile connections are very good but I've never understood why there hasn't been WiFi connections on airport trains and buses.

i wish people would stop calling her British....She's Hungarian. Having a British passport which she wouldn't have got if she's wasn't an athlete doesn't make her British in most peoples eyes.

@zaphod - Economy on the A380's that I've flown on (BA & LH) have the most amount of room of any long distance plane I've used. Being a double decker plane the two half's disembark separately so it's no different than any other plane really.

Hamilton has deserved it this year, Rosberg just hasn't put up enough of a challenge. Hopefully next year the other teams will be closer and we get a closer championship.
