Stress causes manners lapse Veteran anger at A-bomb film

WORKERS are abandoning their manners as chivalry becomes a dying art, researchers claimed today.

More than eight out of 10 passengers refuse to give up their seats on the bus or train, a survey said. Around half of workers do not make cups of tea for colleagues while 86pc do not offer to carry bags for others, it was claimed.

According to the survey of more than 1,000 adults, the main causes of people not bothering were lack of time and stress at work.

Veteran anger at A-bomb film

WWII veterans have attacked Hollywood director James Cameron over a discredited history of the atomic bombing of Japan that he is considering for a possible film.

Veterans and relatives of those who carried out the 1945 attacks, said many aspects of Charles Pellegrino's The Last Train from Hiroshima were "complete fiction and cause great damage to true history".
