Brawl breaks out in Ukrainian parliament over downed plane
Fists fly during a meeting of Ukraine's parliament as deputies vote on increasing the number of troops battling pro-Russian separatists who they accuse of downing a Malaysian Airlines flight. Rough Cut (no reporter narration).
MSN headed off to Parliament to chat with leader of the Liberal Democrats, Nick Clegg, about his thoughts on current Prime Minister Gordon Brown and what he'd do differently if elected into office.
WARNING: THIS TRAILER CONTAINS STRONG LANGUAGE. For Nick, Kurt and Dale, the only thing that would make the daily grind more tolerable would be to grind their intolerable bosses into dust. Quitting is not an option, so, with the benefit of a few-too-many drinks and some dubious advice from a hustling ex-con, the three friends devise a convoluted and seemingly foolproof plan to rid themselves of their respective employers…permanently.
There’s only one problem: even the best laid plans are only as foolproof as the brains behind them.
Release date: In cinemas 22nd July
