Texting, Police & music!

Two-thirds of Swedes secretly read partner's SMS messages:
STOCKHOLM (AFP) - Two-thirds of Swedes secretly read their partner's mobile phone text messages, in particular when he or she nips off to the loo, according to a recent study.

Sixty-four percent of those questioned by mobile portal Halebop for Swedish operator TeliaSonera said they read their partners' SMS messages purely out of curiosity, but one-fourth admitted that they did it out of jealousy.

Most people, 47 percent, said they secretly peeked into their partner's phone when he or she was in the bathroom or shower, while others said they did it when their partner was sleeping or had forgotten to take their mobile.

Sixty-three percent said they were particularly interested in reading their partner's phones messages after he or she had been to a bar or restaurant, while only four percent said they looked after their partner returned from a work conference.

The study also showed that 86 percent of people had flirted with someone by SMS, and 40 percent had had SMS sex (how?!). Seven percent said they had had SMS sex with an unknown person (even more bizarre!) The study questioned 685 people in Sweden from August 25 through September

Off Topic But Interesting
A 43-year-old woman has been arrested in connection with the leak of documents from the investigation into the fatal shooting of Jean Charles de Menezes.

The woman was detained on Wednesday at one of a number of addresses searched in the capital and later released on police bail.

Leicestershire Police are currently investigating the leak after ITV News ran details of the Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) inquiry into the Brazilian's death at Stockwell Tube station in south London on July 22 when he was mistaken for a suspected suicide bomber.

So let's just see if we understand the situation; if the Met Police shoot somebody and lie about the circumstances of that shooting then it's OK. If somebody blows the whistle and tells the world the Police have been lying that get arrested for it.

If this was going on in another country we would saying "well that wouldn't happen at home." But it is happening right here!
