Brian Dowling replaced Davina McCall as the presenter of Big Brother after it moved to Channel 5.
Brian is making this show something completely different and not enjoyable, but rather awkward.
I think that almost anyone else could do a better job presenting Big Brother than he does.
Please sign this petition if you think the same!
Sam Lloyd is being deported for a crime he has already served time for. Sam has lived in the U.S. for 25 and knows no other life.
Sam legally entered the U.S. from England when he was 7 years old. Sam's crime was not a violent offense. Nor was it drug related. Sam has a daughter that was born in the U.S. His family is here. He has nothing left for him in England.
The legacy of the 20th century has left scars of destruction across the face of the earth and across multitudes of innocent victims. Isolation in a global society is not possible, we must all make the attempt help each other rise to a higher level of peace and a higher quality of life. Only a massive, concerted effort can change the direction in which we are now headed.
Hardship and suffering anywhere in the world should become a mandate for cooperative action. The price of neglect has become too high. We cannot leave a world behind for our children in which we fear for their future.
The time to act is now.
Josie Gibson won Big Brother UK in the latest series of Big Brother. The producers claimed it would be the last ever series of Big Brother, after Ultimate Big Brother - which Josie was one of the favourites to win, until she walked. She won Big Brother with an incredible amount of votes.
She was one of the most popular people in Big Brother history! Channel 5 are now going to be airing Big Brother, and the usual presenter for Big Brother UK, Davina Mccall, is not going to be presenting it.
So therefore, I thought it would be a good idea for Josie Gibson, the popular winner of Big Brother, to present it. She is also doing a presenting course, it has been said.
We are urgently calling on the Iranian authorities to halt the imminent execution of Mohammad Reza Haddadi, who could face death by hanging any of these following days for a murder he allegedly committed when he was 15 years old.
Mohammad Reza Haddadi was sentenced to death in 2004 for the murder of Mohammad Bagher. He confessed the killing initially but during the trial he retracted it and said he’d made it because his two co-accused would have given his family money if he had done so. Mohammad then denied having taken part in the murder, and there are reports of his co-defendants supporting his claims of innocence and withdrawing their testimony implicating him in murder.
Mohammad Reza Haddadi’s family was told by judicial officials (04-07-2010) that they should arrange a last visit to their son before his execution already organized for the day after at Adelabad prison in the city of Shiraz.
Despite this, his death sentence was confirmed by Iran's Supreme Court in July 2005. Since then, his execution has been scheduled several times.
This repeated threat of imminent execution hanging over Mohammad Reza Haddadi, is no less than a form of torture. The threat of execution must be lifted now, once and for all.
Mohammad Reza Haddadi must not be executed for a murder that he is alleged to have committed when only 15 years old.
The execution of juvenile offenders is prohibited under international law, including Article 6(5) of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR) and the Convention on the Rights of the Child, to which Iran is a state party.
Big Brother has been going for a strong 10 years, and most of its viewers enjoying watching it during the summer.
Channel 4 have decided that it may be dropped next year.. that would be shame!
Shock over arrest of Riyadh-based Indian muezzin in Hyderabad
By Shahid Ali Khan
RIYADH – News of the arrest of a Riyadh-based Indian muezzin on his arrival in the Indian city of Hyderabad, Saturday, has raised many eyebrows here.
Many regular worshippers at a mosque in Al-Wazarat district here where muezzin Shaukatullah Ghouri used to call the faithful to prayer five times a day, and sometimes lead obligatory prayers, were shocked by Indian news reports of Ghouri’s arrest.
Ghouri was arrested at Rajiv Gandhi International (RGI) airport at Shamshabad on the outskirts of Hyderabad upon his arrival from Jeddah. He is said to have left for Hyderabad for his wife’s medical treatment.
Personnel of the Organization for Counter-Terrorist Operations (OCTOPUS) reportedly arrested Ghouri, his wife and their four children soon after they landed at RGI airport.
The muezzin is accused of involvement in a terror attack in Gujarat on Sept. 24, 2002 which left 30 dead and over a 100 injured.
“Shaukatullah and his brother, Farhatullah, are both involved in the Akshardham temple attack,” DNA newspaper quoted a senior Intelligence officer as saying. “Both the brothers were initially trained by Jaish-e-Mohammad after which they worked in Ahmedabad. When their names figured in the list of suspects in the Akshardham attack case in 2002, both fled to Saudi Arabia.” Farhatullah Ghouri is still absconding, the paper said.
However, few among the worshippers at Hai Al-Wazarat Mosque in Riyadh believe the allegations against Ghouri, a Hafizul Qur’an (memorizer of Qur’an), who has been serving at the mosque for the past two decades.
Hussain Al-Wadani, the Saudi imam of Masjid Al-Salwa, where Ghouri worked, felt that Ghouri would be absolved of the charges.
“God willing, Ghouri will come clean because he is an innocent man,” the imam told a group of Indian Muslims at the mosque, trying to ally their concerns over news of the arrest.
Ghouri is a professional muezzin and well known for his good character, voice and skills of recitation of the Qur’an and for the azan (prayer call), one of the Indians in the group told Saudi Gazette, asking not to be identified.
“It seems Ghouri is being framed,” he said. “We have been reading media reports and watching news channels on how the police have been victimizing innocent people, and strangely enough some were even killed in fake encounters.”
The Imam said he would do his best to support Ghouri in whatever paperwork he might require from Riyadh.
Others who frequent the mosque said they would sign a petition for submission to Indian Ambassador M.O.H. Farooq seeking his intervention for the safe release of Ghouri.
Rashid Abdul Qayoom, a regular worshipper at the mosque, said he has know Ghouri since he arrived in Saudi Arabia. “Ghouri is a legal resident of Saudi Arabia. He arrived in Riyadh on a “free visa” sometime in 1989, and since 1991 he has been working as a muezzin at Masjid Al-Salwa, Qayoom said.
Many students of the Qur’an memorization madrasa that Ghouri ran at his house were also shocked by news of the arrest. All of Ghouri’s children are Hafiz (who have memorized the Holy Qur’an).
Ghouri’s neighbor told Saudi Gazette that Ghouri was drawing a monthly salary package of around SR2,100 which was hardly enough for his six-member family’s monthly expenses. “The muezzin sahib very often spoke about financial hardship, particularly when it came to payment of annual housing rent,” the neighbor said. Ghouri managed by running the Qur’an memorization school which has an enrolment of around 20 students, he said.
To travel to India, Ghouri chose to fly Oman Air for its comparatively cheaper fares, the neighbor added, speaking on condition of anonymity.
According to Indian news reports, Ghouri was taken to an undisclosed location where he was interrogated by officials of OCTOPUS and the local police. His wife and children were taken to a farmhouse where their baggage was searched and their passports and some educational certificates were seized. His wife and children were later released.
Ghouri was handed over to the Gujarat police on Sunday morning as a non-bailable arrest warrant is pending against him in the Akshardham case, reports said. – SG

There has Always Been A Big Brother For Adults.
But Why Not One For Kids?
It Would Be More Interesting And More Fun =]
For 8 series, Channel 4 has taken normal members of the public and turned them into guinea pigs for mindless television.
It was interesting to watch at the start but now, it has gone too far as the producers have run out of ideas and made these innocent housemates into figures of fun.
The viewing figures have gone down and nobody cares anymore, so I think it's time that Channel 4 make the right decision not just to axe Celebrity Big Brother but to axe the whole idea of Big Brother all together! Reality TV must be binned!
The introduction and length of sound dips during the live feed of Big Brother has been increasing year by year.
Originally intended as a safeguard for the privacy of housemates', their friends and family, or as a precaution against libellous statements about others, and to prevent advertising of products, it is now evident that the sound dips are being employed indiscriminately and, in most cases, without justification (this is evident when something that was sound dipped during live feed is later shown on the Highlights show).
We are fed up of all the racism that goes on in the big brother house.
Incest is sexual activity between close family members who are forbidden by law or custom from marrying. Incest is considered taboo, and forbidden (though not always punished severely) in the majority of current and past cultures. This is and was the case even in cultures that are or were sexually permissive in other ways, such as the French Polynesian Marquesas prior to Western influence, who permitted child sexuality and experimentation, but disallowed incest.
The precise meaning of the word varies widely. Different cultures have differing notions of what behaviors constitute sexual activity, and what familial relationships are considered "close". Some cultures consider only those related by birth, while others include those related by adoption or marriage. Some prohibit sexual relations between people who grew up in the same household, while others prohibit sexual relations between people who grew up in related households.
Incest can occur between same-sex as well as opposite-sex relatives. It can occur between persons of any age.
Incest between close blood-relations is a crime in most jurisdictions even in cases where the sex is consensual, although again the extent of the definition of "close" varies. However, since incest is an interpersonal act that takes place in private, it is a difficult law to enforce. There are wide differences between nations as to how serious the crime of incest is. In some countries, such as Australia, incest is a serious indictable offense, while in others it is a minor crime with much less serious consequences.
Similiar to Big Brothers, Big Sisters of America a Big Sisters, Big Brothers program in Brazil needs to be started to prevent more children from going to the streets or into premature prostitution.
Also, to enable a closer bond between the huge gap of rich and poor Brazilians.
On August 21, 2006, Derrick Palmer was forced to fire a weapon at his mother's boyfriend to save her, her unborn child, and baby brother's life.
He has been charged as an adult with murder.

My petition is to keep Big Brother on our screens.
It is loved by millions and people enjoy watching it.

This show is vile and degrading and is not entertaining.
Let's show the TV station the morals this show violates.

It's time to give up the fake so called reality TV.
This is not and has never been reality. Its a money making machine gone mad.
Targeting children, mainly girls under 18 its time people woke up to the mind numbing illogical use of the word reality!
THIS IS NOT REAL LIFE!

Channel 10, under pressure from right-wing extremists, has decided to axe the show Big Brother Adults Only. We feel that this is a breach of our civil liberties as consenting adults to watch adult content.
We, as viewers form attachments to particular housemates, and would like to see THEM, as opposed to any old porn star, engaged in sexual discussions/situations.
We feel that no religious group should have the right to push their views onto everyone else.
With regards criticisms that teenagers may be watching, we feel that it is their PARENTS responsibility to ensure that this does not happen, and the rest of us should not be penalised for the poor parenting of a few.
We also feel that 9:30pm is a late enough timeslot for this show to be aired.

Many people feel that Jamie and Katie are receiving preferential treatment from Big Brother Australia, and that they have been behaving quite childishly in recent days.
a) Too much air-time is dedicated to them.
b) Too much of the web streaming is dedicated to them.
c) BB has not shown the extent of their immature reactions to being nominated.
d) Katie was given a better birthday party for her 20th than poor John was given for his 21st. Katie's birthday party is the only one so far that has featured music and the use of the Rewards Room.
e) There has been much collusion and nominations talk between the two which has gone unpunished. Jamie has received 4 fines for nominations talk but no strikes, even though it is an evictorial offence. They are believed to have written messages to each other in toothpaste under the doona.
f) Although Katie has been caught out lying by her housemates, this has not been aired by Big Brother. The lies pertain to a top given to her by Danni, and not having an expensive top of Claire's when she did.
Day 36, 28th of May, 06, Michael was evicted from the big brother house.
Quoting the Big Brother website, from day one Michael lived up to his psychological profile, proving that he was "likely to be strategic as he is analytical". He analyzed, pondered, assessed, scrutinized and dissected every aspect of the House - and drove a lot of people crazy in the process! The BB House just won't be the same without the 'self-employed' Insider.
Who could forget his insider missions:
Sabotaging the clown task
Concocting a tale involving 'Reuben'
And stealing the housemates toothbrushes
Love him or hate him, Michael did cause havoc in the house and offered exciting TV viewing. Yet, the controversy did not end there. Michael continued to voice his opinions on the nomination show, Rove Live and the Kyle and Jackie O show.
So what has happened since then? Well, if 20000+ viewers voice a positive message wanting Michael back in the house, Michael may be considered to return back to the house as a contestant or as a guest. This is a shout out to all viewers who enjoy exciting television. This is not a shout out just to Michael fans.
So, if you love to be entertains make sure you let big Brother know that the house needs Michael by singing the petition. Never Quit Michael! Never Quit!

We propose that the fabulous Jeffree Star be sent into the Australian Big Brother house as an intruder; make-up kit and all.
See for yourself how much he can bring to the house. http://profile.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=user.viewprofile&friendID=71676
