News Headlines

    Have you noticed how often the number six appears in newspaper headlines, not 1, 2, 4, 5, 7, or 8, but 6, it's always six, for example here are ones which have appeared in newspapers over the years.   'Six Hurt In Road Accident.'    'Prison Escape By Six.'    'Six bound for the North Pole.'     'Rail Accident Kills Six.'      'Six Held For Questioning.'  'Six Charged With Conspiracy.'    'Six Involved In Fraud.' 'Six Arrested  After Shop Explosion.' 'Phew! Cleaning the Loo Lands Six In Hospital.' you get the general idea. So here is another one, taken from last Saturday's Times newspaper.

BCNU in the headlines!


  1. To be truly prisoneresqe, it should have read: SEARCH ON FOR EIGHTH PRIME MINISTER AFTER No6 QUITS.

  2. Hello Mister A,

    Oh that's good. You're right of course, quite right. I see the Prisoneresque logic in that. 8 being the next number after 6 in the Village.

    Be seeing you
