So we had to create a character naughty enough for us to like him and simultaneously have him go on a journey that makes him respectable." And it's been further revealed that the new version of Arthur will grow up in an old brothel before using his hard-won street smarts to rise to the top. "He's more streetwise and rough around the edges than most of the Arthurs we've seen," Ritchie went on to explain to Empire . "He's a wide-boy scoundrel with a heart of gold, who has a healthy disdain for the ruling class." Meanwhile, star Charlie Hunnam has been talking with Collider about the strange process of putting the movie together, and it seems that director Ritchie ( Snatch ) decided to do away with the typical table reads and cast get-togethers in favour of filming a sort of initial stage play of the film. "We did something strange and wonderful," Hunnam explains.

"We did something strange and wonderful," Hunnam explains. "I didnt think it was gonna work at all, but it did. Guy had this wacky idea that he wanted to take an afternoon before we started working and shoot the whole film in four hours on two or three cameras and in a room all in black. We shot the whole film, and that’s where we met. That’s where most of the cast met. It was a baptism of fire. It was such a high-energy, sort of anxiety-inducing experience.

It’s true. The politicians. They’ve had me to their homes. They’ve introduced me to their children. I’ve become their best friends in many instances. They’ve asked for my endorsement and they’ve always wanted my money. And even called me really a dear, dear friend. But then suddenly, decided when I ran for president as a Republican, that I’ve always been a no-good, rotten, disgusting scoundrel. And they totally forgot about me. In other words: even if I have been a no-good, rotten, disgusting scoundrel, what does that make you? At least I dont pretend to be decent; you people, on the other hand, have the gall to pretend that you’re any better than I am. Let’s dispense with the fiction that you would have treated me with any less contempt if I had bothered to live up to any of your standards of decency in the first place, and acknowledge that they have nothing to do with decency per se, and everything to do with power.

But there is no point in denying their existence. All human beings are flawed, we all make mistakes, but some people exploit immigrants as a business practice. The legal profession can be no more perfect than humanity itself. One of the more notorious swindlers of recent years--non-attorney Stella Figueredo --bilked her "clients" of hundreds of thousands of dollars running an unlicensed law practice. Another scoundrel, John Waldemar Lugo, snared "clients" by claiming that he was a former immigration officer and a law school graduate. In reality, he had provided security services to an immigration detention center, where he apparently identified a population vulnerable to fraud. Both Figueredo and Lugo eventually came to the attention of state Attorney Generals (New York for Figueredo and Texas for Lugo) and were ordered to cease their illegal activities.

Woody Harrelson is officially joining the cast of the upcoming Star Wars standalone film centered around a young Han Solo (Alden Ehrenreich) , and Mashable got a chance to talk to the Hunger Games star soon after the casting news broke on Wednesday. Details about Harrelson's Star Wars role are scarce, but the actor confirmed rumors that he'll be playing "a mentor to Han," telling Mashable that his character is "also a bit of a criminal." Much as Obi-Wan Kenobi schooled Luke Skywalker in the ways of the Force, perhaps Harrelson's character will tutor the young Han Solo in the finer points of being a smuggling scoundrel. Read more...

We have for many years in this country had a civil service that operates in -- impartially and irrespective of their own private views. To try and politicised the civil service is really scandalous. It is the sort of refuge of a scoundrel.

" It is a contrast in opposites, like "a wise old Texas saying," or "British cuisine." A happy new year with the orange Dump as Leader of the Free World is another example, and the one that is worrying me now. I can explain it to my friends - many of whom, thank god or their own generosity, are readers of my blog. But when someone in the elevator wishes me a happy new year as I step out on my floor, what kind of grouch or pedant would I have to be to go into the intricacies of the oxymoron, a term in itself questionable since it is not found anywhere in ancient Greek texts, but came into being much later, via 5th century Latin? And so I answer automatically, "Happy New Year" and I smile, but as well Hamlet knew ("one may smile and smile, and be a villain"), behind that smile I am sneering like a long-mustachio'd scoundrel about to steal either the house or the girl.

The thefts involved the chairman and vice chairman of Alliance Bank absconding with $1.2 billion and the chairman of BTA, a world-class scoundrel named Mukhtar Ablyazov, stealing a whopping $14 billion, then fleeing to the West. Just this month, Ablyazov fooled France's highest administrative court, the Council of State, into believing his claim that he is a dissident who would be punished for his political views if he had to go to Russia or Kazakhstan to face embezzling and other charges. Dissident my foot! Martin Luther King Jr., Mohatma Gandhi and Nelson Mandela were dissidents. Ablyazov is a common criminal -- albeit a big-time one. Russia, whose economic problems have affected countries like Armenia that are tried to its economy, had to bail out some of its biggest banks earlier than Ukraine and Kazakhstan did. In late 2014 it pumped $1.
