Good stuff:

Hosni Mubarak has stepped down as president of Egypt, after weeks of protest in Cairo and other cities

The news was greeted with a huge outburst of joy and celebration by thousands in Cairo’s Tahrir Square – the heart of the demonstrations.

Mr Mubarak ruled for 30 years, suppressing dissent and protest, and jailing opponents.

US President Barack Obama said that Egypt must now move to civilian and democratic rule.

    I would have like to have been on London’s Edgware Road tonight.
    I wonder if everyone was celebrating.

    Who is next??????? Yemen, Saudi Arabia or Iran…they all will eventually be swept from power and maybe then the ordinary people can benefit from some of the natural resources of the Middle East.
