A good day for:

The opposition in Thailand, with the announcement by two leading astrologers that the coalition government, led by prime minister Banharn Silpa-archa, would not last long because he was appointed on an inauspicious date and will face an ominous solar elipse in October.

A bad day for:

Batman, whose butler, Alfred, is in hospital with a broken leg. Actor Michael Gough suffered the injury when he was pushed over by a foal he was stroking at a farm in Somerset.
