THE NEWS

Odd news from around the world

Australian telephone company sends bill to dead Prime Minister: “The mystery surrounding a phone bill charged to late prime minister John Gorton has Telstra officials scratching their heads. Mr Gorton, who was in office from 1968 to 1971 and died in 2002, managed to run up a bill of a whopping $2.69 in the first half of 2014, according to figures released by the Department of Parliamentary Services. A Telstra spokesman told Daily Mail Australia they are investigating the charges credited to Mr Gorton. Gough Whitlam [also deceased] was charged the same as Mr Gorton, $2.69. A DPS spokeswoman shed light on the mystery surrounding bill, saying the charges were incurred by Nancy Gorton, the former prime minister’s widow. ‘Surviving spouses or de facto partners of former prime ministers are eligible for the entitlement,’ the spokeswoman said.”

The sex attacker who picked on a woman kickboxer only to be throttled by his victim’s LEGS: “A sex attacker got more than he bargained for when he preyed on a kickboxer who throttled him with her legs until he passed out. The 25-year-old woman was walking home at 2am when Mark Willis, 39, repeatedly punched her and pushed her over a wall and into a garden. He jumped on top of her and told her: ‘Be quiet and do as I tell you and you won’t get hurt.’ But his victim, who had been kickboxing for two years and knows self-defence, fought back, Gloucester Crown Court heard. ‘My legs were free so I lifted my left leg up on to his shoulder and around the back of his neck. I crossed my right leg over and squeezed together as hard as I could. ‘He seemed to struggle for air – which was the point. His head was locked down. He lifted his right hand and pounded as hard as he could on the side of my face. ‘I closed my eyes and held it for as long as I could hoping he would pass out in a few seconds. Then I felt his body go limp. I flipped him off, rolled over and crawled through the bushes to the door of the house.’ She later heard him run away and the sound of a car starting.

Woman whose boyfriend convinced her to have THREE boob jobs: “A woman who has had her breasts surgically enhanced three times at her boyfriend’s behest has admitted she wouldn’t have made them so large if he wasn’t paying. Victoria Highlander, from Fort Lauderdale in Florida, hit the headlines last week when it was revealed that she has had her bosom enhanced from a 26D (26D UK) to 26O (26K UK) at the request of her boyfriend, Ivan LeCasque. Mr LeCasque is so proud of his ability to persuade his partner to have surgery, he has written a controversial book called the Convince Her To Get Bigger Breasts Manual. Appearing on today’s This Morning via video link, Ms Highlander, 47, confessed that she wouldn’t have made them so big if she was the one picking up the $11,000 (£7,000) bill. ‘At first of course I was outraged like most women would be,’ she said. ‘You think they should love me the way I am, so my first reaction was to say “No, why don’t you get a penis enlargement?” ‘But now I am more mature. I have had three children who I breastfed and I wanted to go back to feeling sexy.'”

Angry Indian lady: “A woman flew into an uncontrollable rage after being winked at by a politician’s bodyguard, jumping onto his car and smashing the windscreen with his party’s flag. Dramatic video shows the 23-year-old climbing onto the party leader’s Mercedes at a set of traffic lights, bringing the road to a standstill as crowds gathered to watch her outburst. Standing on the bonnet, she plucks the flag from the car and repeatedly hammers it into the windscreen until it cracks while demanding they respond to her allegations of sexual harassment. The row erupted when the woman claimed the bodyguard winked at her as she pulled up on her scooter alongside the politician’s convoy at a set of traffic lights in Agra, India, on Sunday. After leaping onto the car, she demanded the politician, Abhinav Sharma, and his security guard leave the vehicle and face up to her. Eventually, with Mr Sharma remaining inside the car, some of his guards confronted the woman.”

Ooh la la!: “French minister Annick Girardin has shunned the conventions of political office – by boldly attending diplomatic meetings with Cambodian officials in a low cut dress and cardigan. Not content with formal attire, the minister of state for development and francophony surprised everyone when she appeared for political discussions in the revealing outfit. And if her clothes left little to the imagination, so did her negotiating acumen – she has finalised and signed off the details of £70 million worth of financing agreements and development projects. During her visit to Phnom Penh, the capital of the former French colony, she visited a flood management centre and hydro-meterological station, both based on the famed Mekong River. Girardin was promoted to a minister in Manuel Valls cabinet in April last year after spending more than a decade serving councils and other political positions.”
