Aung San Suu Kyi meets Grooverider

BURMESE pro-democracy campaigner Aung San Suu Kyi has met drum and bass DJ Grooverider, whose Radio 1 show helped sustain her while incarcerated.

Suu Kyi, who is the recipient of humanitarian awards including the Nobel Peace Prize, listened to Grooverider’s weekly jungle rinse-out during long periods of house arrest, which made meeting the DJ a priority for her current UK visit.

Although Grooverider co-hosts the Radio 1 show with fellow jungle legend Fabio, Suu Kyi is believed to particularly identify with Groove because he too was briefly incarcerated, for trying to get into Dubai with a small amount of puff.

A source at Suu Kyi’s London School of Economics reception said: “Suu Kyi was overwhelmed to meet Groove. She said she greatly admires both his mixing skills and tune selection.

“Grooverider was visibly touched and handed her one of his most coveted dub plates after signing it.”

A spokesman for Suu Kyi said: “She and the Rider spoke at length about the rave scene and how she hopes he and Fabio will one day come and play in Burma.

“Suu Kyi sees parallels between raving and Burma’s political situation because they were both better back in the day, when there was more unity.

“Sadly Fabio couldn’t make it but Grooverider wrapped up some canapes in a hanky and took them home for him.”

Prince William desperate for threesome

THE Duke of Cambridge’s ’30 things to do before you’re 30′ list gives him less than 24 hours to have a threesome, it has emerged.

William, who celebrates his 30th birthday on Thursday, initially tried to persuade his wife of one year to get it on with him and Cheryl Cole as part of the Diamond Jubilee celebrations earlier this month, but was firmly rebuffed.

A subsequent Royal decree ordering Jordan and ‘the blonde one off Countdown’ to meet the prince behind a Buckingham Palace sentry box was cancelled after Kate Middleton saw plans for a souvenir plate designed to commemorate the encounter.

The Prince has eliminated all the other things on his list, including driving a convertible, sleeping with a friend’s girlfriend and losing £10,000 at roulette, which he did to amuse schoolfriends on his eighth birthday.

He said: “I got lost in a country where I don’t understand a word the natives say when I visited Glasgow, I was arrested for being drunk in charge of a Sea King helicopter in the Falklands, and I killed a man just to watch him die during my gap year in Chile.

“I can’t really do the one about quitting your job without dying, so I fired my equerry instead. But I’ve only got one day to get dual action under my belt without Kate finding out and I don’t think I’m going to do it.”

On hearing of his brother’s plight, Prince Harry ordered that the eight-volume Order of the Garter’s Register of Dirty Girls be brought from St George’s Chapel, Windsor.

While flicking through the tomes in search of suitable candidates, Harry said: “Bloody hell, Fergie’s in here.”
