Like an image straight out of a comic book superhero The Statesman watches silently over the bright lights of a British city - waiting for a crime or cry for help to ring out. Incredibly the scene is not from a Hollywood blockbuster or cult graphic novel but shows the UK's very own real life superhero. In an amazing twist The Statesman is a banker by day and says that he tries to balance out the unpopularity of his day-job by saving people at night in his costume. And shockingly not even The Statesman's GIRLFRIEND knows that her partner dons a mask and sneaks out four times-a-week to combat injustice and help the needy under the cover of darkness on the streets of Birmingham. In this tell-all interview he reveals how he and other real life crusaders helped arrest a drug dealer, he foiled a break-in while dressed in costume, his life as a former TA soldier gives him crime-fighting skills and he uses 14 years of boxing to protect Britain, using force as a last resort.

Turkish PM greeted by cheers after Israel debate clash
Recep Tayyip Erdogan argued with Israeli president over Gaza offensive, before storming out
Turkey's prime minister, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, arrived home to a tumultuous reception of cheering crowds early today after storming out of a debate in Davos over Israel's recent offensive in Gaza.
Hours after clashing with the Israeli president, Shimon Peres, in angry scenes at the normally sedate world economic forum, he was welcomed at Istanbul's Ataturk airport by thousands of supporters waving Turkish and Palestinian flags and chanting "Turkey is proud of you". Sympathisers also left bouquets of flowers at his official residence.
The outpouring of support displayed the domestic political capital Erdogan gained from his performance at the Swiss resort, where he told Peres: "When it comes to killing, you know very well how to kill." He then walked off the stage, declaring that he would never return to Davos, after claiming he had not been allowed to speak by the debate moderator, the Washington Post columnist David Ignatius.
Erdogan also accused Peres of raising his voice and claimed the Israeli statesman had been allowed more speaking time than himself and the panel discussion's two other participants, the UN secretary general Ban Ki-moon, and Amr Moussa, secretary general of the Arab League.
Peres had earlier made an impassioned defence of Israeli actions in Gaza, asking Erdogan: "What would you do if you were to have in Istanbul every night a hundred rockets?" Erdogan responded by saying: "President Peres, you are older than me and your voice is very loud. The reason for you raising your voice is the psychology of guilt … I know very well how you hit and killed children on the beaches."
The prime minister's wife, Emine – who this month organised a Women For Peace In Palestine lunch for the wives of Islamic dignitaries – also became involved, bursting into tears after telling reporters that "everything Peres said was a lie".
Erdogan's outburst was his most high-profile in a series of outspoken attacks on Israel's Gaza operations. He had previously called the offensive – in which around 1,300 Palestinians died – a "crime against humanity" and demanded Israel's expulsion from the UN.
His stance has shocked Israeli officials — used to considering Turkey as their closest regional ally — but played to the pro-Palestinian sentiments of the overwhelmingly Muslim Turkish public. Mass demonstrations in favour of Hamas have been staged in Istanbul and other cities.
Such sympathies have prompted suggestions that Erdogan's rhetoric has been mainly for domestic political consumption and aimed at wooing voters at forthcoming municipal elections in March. Jewish groups have also voiced fears that the government's fierce anti-Israeli criticism is fuelling antisemitism The row with Peres overshadowed a dispute between the government and the International Montetary Fund that had seen Erdgoan accuse the fund of setting unacceptable conditions, after negotiations were suspended over a proposed loan to help Turkey weather the economic recession.
On arriving at Ataturk airport, he depicted his Davos walk-out in nationalist terms, telling journalists: "This was a matter of the esteem and prestige of my country. I could not have allowed anyone to poison the prestige and in particular the honour of my country."
He also denied his comments were aimed at the Israeli people or Jews in general. A world economic forum spokesman said Peres spoke with Erdogan on the phone after the debate and expressed his respect for Turkey.
However, some observers believe Erdogan has sacrificed Turkish foreign policy, especially Turkey's self-appointed role as a regional mediator.
Before the Gaza hostilities Turkey had been mediating in negotiations between Israel and Syria. There are also fears that the pro-Israel lobby in the US will back moves to recognise the massacres of Armenians by Ottoman forces in the first world war as genocide, a move Turkey vehemen...
“I’m talking about state’s rights, state’s rights, state’s rights. Texans know how to run Texas.” -Texas governor Rick Perry
The governor’s words have people across America asking, “Does Texas want to secede?”
MSNBC’s Keith Olberman tries to examine the governor’s intent:
“Is the governor making too subtle a distinction when it appears that secession is what many of the people listening to him are hearing anyway? “And that’s exactly what this governor is saying.” (MSNBC)
FOX News covered a tea party at The Alamo in Texas... where protesters voiced their support…
“Listening to things coming out of Texas, I don’t want to be too dramatic, but it almost seems like Texas is looking to secede from the nation”… ends on loud cheering… (FOX News)
The statesman**** in Austin takes a different view on the governor’s message – saying it plays well with conservatives – and his re-election bid… (statesman****)
“it… appears to have breathed new life into [his] re-election campaign, 3 ½ months into what’s been a rather rough year for him.”
Nicholas Kristof, a New York Times columnist posted this on Twitter…
“Gov. Perry talking about Texas seceding from the Union because of taxes! It's official: he's nuts!” (twitter****)
Is it campaign politics or something more?
