Friday music & stuff

The weekend is here and so is Christmas shopping madness; have you seen it out there?

George Best seems to be hanging on in there but he is perhaps an example to all of us of what
can happen when drinking gets out of control. It seems that all that can be done now is to pray for a miracle.

Britons happy to forge a sick note
LONDON (Reuters) - Nearly half of Britons admit to some kind of document-forging and a quarter confess to exaggerating educational qualifications for job purposes, according to a survey on Thursday.

The Dishonest Britain Study 2005 showed 45 percent of people admitted to some kind of forgery, be it underage drinkers faking ID or the work-shy faking doctors' notes.
"Dishonesty and fraud are shockingly widespread," said Danny Chapchal, Executive Chairman of TSSI Systems which commissioned the survey and which specialises in security verification systems.

"Identity fraud is now a major risk to consumers, yet our study shows that low level identity abuse and fraud is commonplace to the extent that it is almost becoming socially acceptable," he added.

The most popular forgery, at 18 percent, was ID cards, while five percent admitted to faking doctors' notes and four percent confessed to forging letters on company stationery.
