Today was okay. I woke up at 13:00 after falling asleep at 21:00 last night. Before you write me off as a lazy bastard (which I am), for some reason I had a sneezing fit last night and it took my energy out of me. To add even more mystery to this, my girlfriend Beth said we had a row which I have no recollection of, shit! This is also why , if anyone noticed, I didn’t create a journal post yesterday. Sorry!

When I woke up I finished the blog stuff I started the night before and then got ready to head back to Warrington for my birthday! Tomorrow (or rather today when this post is released) I turn 20! On the way back to Warrington we got a KFC and, for some unknown reason, we literally received double what we ordered. They didn’t charge us double by mistake so we have no idea what happened, but we’re not complaining. There’s so much chicken I have no idea what to do with it—I’ve had to cling-film it as it won’t fit in the fridge!

After we got the KFC we made a mad-dash to Liverpool Queen Square Bus Station to see if we could make the 21:05 number 7 to Warrington, we didn’t. Rather than wait until the next number 7 was due at 22:05 we decided to instead walk to Liverpool Lime Street Station and catch the 21:30 train to York which stopped at Warrington Central. It’s weird to think that, if I went back yesterday, I would have seen famous politicians and journalists at Liverpool Lime Street as it was the Labour Party conference. Nonetheless, my father kindly saved us a 30 minute walk from Warrington Central back to my parents’ house by picking us up. I am especially relieved and grateful for this as Warrington Wolves had just finished playing so there was a crowd swarming through what is usually a deserted place on a Thursday night at that time!

As I’m writing this, I’m now at my parents’ house in Warrington looking forward to celebrate my birthday with my family. I’m both honoured and privileged to be surrounded by so many people that care about me and I am grateful to have been given such a wonderful life full of wealth, desire, opportunity, passion and success.
May the next 20 years in my life be as good as the first.

Peres was 93 when he died. 

 

Peres suffered a stroke two weeks ago and his condition deteriorated severely yesterday. 

World figures are expected to attend his funeral in Jerusalem on Friday.

Peres is one of the last to witness the creation of the Israeli state in 1948. 

Peres also won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1994 for his role in negotiating the Oslo peace accords with the Palestinians. He shared this prize with the Israeli prime minister at the time Yitzhak Rabin and Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat. 

Current Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu gave the following statement to the BBC with regards to Peres’ death:
As a man of vision, his gaze was aimed to the future. As a man of security, he fortified Israel’s strength in many ways, some of which even today are still unknown. As a man of peace, he worked until his final days toward reconciling with our neighbours for a better future for our children.

Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas sent a letter of condolence to Peres’ family. 

However, Hamas (a radical Islamist movement which dominates the Gaza Strip) expressed happiness with Peres’ death. 

Poaching Parliament offers its condolences to Peres’ family and friends at this difficult time.

Malaysian Airlines flight MH17, which was downed over eastern Ukraine in 2014, is believed to have been hit by a Russian Buk missile. 

 

The Dutch investigators also have evidence to indicate that the missile was fired from a field in the territory of Russian-backed rebels. 

The Boeing 777, which was carrying 298 people, had no survivors when it crashed. 

MH17 was travelling from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur.
Russia disagrees with the findings of the investigation as it argues no Russian weapons were taken to Ukraine. 

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov gave the following statement to the BBC:
We cannot accept as final truth of what they say. I bet you haven’t seen any proof of what they say. We know the devil is in the detail, and we are still missing a lot of the detail. We’ve been ruling out the fact that any Russian weapons were shipped to Ukraine, any Russian army members, any Russian troops were inside Ukraine. And we’re still ruling out that possibility.
Ukraine was supportive of the Dutch investigation’s findings.
The Dutch investigation claims to have a 100-person long list containing the names of those directly involved with the missile attack. 

There have been many witnesses of the incident, with intercepted phone calls forming a main part of this. 

It seems Russia are trying to push everyone’s buttons recently…
