A Syrian rebel accidentally blew himself and his comrades up while taking a selfie with a phone possibly connected to a bomb, the media reported on Friday.
The 30-second clip shows eight men from the Free Syrian Army gathering around a camera. They were sitting in front of a rebel flag as they sing into a microphone, with two rifles propped up in front of them.
The unverified footage then showed one of the men picking up a phone and holding it up to take a picture of him and the other rebels, the dailymail.co.uk reported.
A clicking noise can be heard moments before a sudden blast rocks the room, with flames and smoke obscuring the camera’s view.
Jeremy Corbyn opened Labour’s meeting today by accidentally re-reading a speech he made just last month for a full 25-minutes.
The 66-year-old leader failed to notice his mistake as he repeated his state of the party address in its entirety.
Opposition representatives from the Blairite wing were sent text messages during the speech warning them not to interrupt the veteran leader, who remained completely unaware that he’s spoken the same words a month earlier.
Robert Mugabe’s recent major appearance as Zimbabwe’s President and party leader descended into shambles when he failed to use pre-briefed lines attacking Margaret Thatcher in his speech to the assemlbled rabble.
According to pre-briefed comments, Mr Mugabe was planning to invoke the memory of Margaret Thatcher by declaring that the Conservatives view Zimbabweans as “the enemy within” – the expression used by Lady Thatcher to describe them in the 1980s.
Lady Thatcher is a hate figure for many Zimbabwean activists who blame her for the decline of British colonialism in the 1980s and the imposition of Mugabe upon that country.
The model for a leftwing resurgence? Evangelical Christianity
Corbyn’s survival requires a sustained grassroots movement. I share none of its core beliefs, but evangelism shows me how this might best be done
So, don’t let inconvenient information reach the faithful, insist upon blind obedience to the dictates of the beard in the sky and above all, don’t let anyone question anything.
Should work, worked for millennia already, hasn’t it?
The new Labour leader faced heavy criticism for standing in silence while God Save the Queen was played during a Battle of Britain remembrance ceremony at St Paul’s Cathedral attended by the Prime Minister, Defence Secretary and scores of military leaders.
Former military commanders as well as Labour and Tory MPs said he was “dishonourable” for refusing to sing the national anthem.
Mr Corbyn later insisted that he “stood in respectful silence” during the remembrance ceremony.
Well, obviously, they would. And there’s, among Jezzbollah, plenty who would applaud such a stance of sticking it to The Man.
But it wasn’t just The Sun which played up Foot’s donkey jacket at the Cenotaph, was it? Didn’t go down well woih working class England, let alone Middle, did it?
