Following the ousting of Egypt’s President Mubarak and Tunisian President Zine al-Abidine Ben Ali, unrest has been spreading throughout the Middle East and Northern Africa.
Violent protests against Colonel Gaddafi’s reign in Libya have reportedly left hundreds of people dead, while Shia protesters in Bahrain have occupied the capital’s main square.
As sporadic protests break out in other areas in the region such as Syria, Morocco and Tunisia, we contacted one of the world’s leading experts in international affairs for his considered opinion on what might happen next in the Middle East.
“Who the hell knows?” was his response.

Jordan: Britain's Most Prolific Whore?
Researchers for the Guinness Book of Records today started a nationwide media advertising campaign as they search for a British man who has not had sex with the glamour model Jordan.
Compilers at the annual reference book decided to launch the media campaign amid growing evidence that Jordan, real name Katie Price, could be in line for the title of “Britain’s Most Prolific Whore”.
As tabloid speculation continues to link Jordan to a string of celebrity sexual conquests the question has been asked with increasing frequency over the past year: “Is there a man in Britain who has not had sex with Jordan?”
A spokesman for Guinness said: “We’ve had many enquiries in recent times asking us if Jordan is the most prolific whore in the country and, if she is, whether a Guinness record exists for such a feat.”
“There’s been so much interest in the matter that we took the decision to find out, and so we’ve launched an advertising blitz looking for men who have not had sex with Jordan to contact us.”
“This approach, as opposed to asking men who have had sex with Jordan to contact us, will save us around 1200 hours in manpower and means we will be able to include the record in the next edition of the Guinness Book of World Records.”
