Quotes

Andrew Illsley, Ukip chairman for Staffordshire, added: "This has been a very successful event and I'm delighted with the turnout, with speakers talking about topics that are close to people's hearts in Staffordshire, the Save Stafford Hospital Campaign and Stop HS2."
"We concur the buildings should be vacated, but initial (Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk and (acting president Oleksandr Turchynov much leave the buildings that they are occupying illegally since their coup d'etat" Denis Pushilin, a prominent associate of the self-talked Donetsk Republic, informed journalists
"In that context, how America 'manages' Eurasia is critical. A power that dominates Eurasia would control two of the world's three most advanced and economically productive regions. A mere glance at the map also suggests that control over Eurasia would almost automatically entail Africa's subordination, rendering the Western Hemisphere and Oceania (Australia) geopolitically peripheral to the world's central continent. About 75 per cent of the world's people live in Eurasia, and most of the world's physical wealth is there as well, both in its enterprises and underneath its soil. Eurasia accounts for about three-fourths of the world's known energy resources."
"A man sitting in a car opened fire on a man, a woman and a boy as they were returning home" Neven said
