Default GQ: "Ten things we would immediately outlaw if we ruled the world"

1. The people who dance behind the Pet Shop Boys
2. Ryanair
3. Lush
4. Panini
5. Affenpinschers
6. Iced chai
7. Joss Stone
8. DUBAI???????
9. The phrase 'blogosphere'
10. The fun one on Question Time

A fairly asinine list but Dubai??? And what the hell are Affenpinschers??? Quick Google reveals that they are Ewok-resembling toy dogs - fair play.

Come on GQ, there must be a much better number 8 - suggestions please...

Best

Thanks so much Meow. Can I also add:

The misuse of their, there, they're, your and you're
The misuse of the apostrophe in general use and for plurals
Milky tea
Talentless manufactured pop acts
Politicians' expense forms
People not picking up their dog sh1t (is outlawed but not sever enough penalties - they should be made to eat it)

I am with you on that one Spugsy,they even happen to have one of my favourite smells,mmmm panini!!

Hotels charging your bank without authorisation (both hotels here in saudi have and I get funny looks when I rant at reception and wonder if I am likely to be stoned or summat)
extortionate beer prices,
driving outside of markings on any type of road,
any form of segregation,
irresponsible bar owners,
talk of a european football league,
all seater football stadiums,
be forum peace.

heh, I play footy with Danny from Radio 1, he was offended when I said I had to switch over from his show, but added 'it's that bird man Danny, she gets right on my ****ing tits'.

I guess a lot of people feel that way.
