Sharon rants on 'mediocre' U2

Sharon Osbourne has criticised U2 for releasing their "mediocre" album free on iTunes.

U2 surprised fans when they gave Songs Of Innocence to around half a billion iTunes music store users as well as subscribers to their website.

Osbourne tweeted: "You are business moguls not musicians any more. No wonder you have to give your mediocre music away for free cause no one wants to buy it. Guys nothing is for free, how much you making? PS, btw you are just a bunch of middle age political groupies."

Fiji gets first vote since coup

Thousands of Fijians got their first chance to vote in eight years in an election that promises to finally restore democracy to the South Pacific nation after a coup in 2006.

Yet questions remain about how far military ruler Voreqe Bainimarama has tilted the outcome in his favour. His Fiji First party is expected to get the most votes, but whether it will gain an outright majority under the new proportional system remains uncertain.
