Ultimate review of 2011: October

By Naila Missous, Josh Wells, Dave Burridge, Vanessa Martinez, Cristian Meza, Matt Hill and Richard Smith



October 20 was one of the most important and momentous days in Libyan and Arab history: former Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi was killed in Sirte.

Graphic photos and videos of Gaddafi circulated in the worlds media.

The dictator’s death still leaves many unanswered question for Libya- such as what is next?

Whilst the rebels were united in removing Gaddafi many disagree on their fundamental political ideas and in their vision for the future of Libya.

Politics and the economy

From the end of October the issue of Europe dominated politics particularly for the UK. October saw intensive negotiation over an EU bail out.

Also, Quantitative easing was resumed in the UK to help the floundering economy as inflation fears began to recede.

  Occupy Wall Street

By October, the occupy movements grew to other cities across the United states, including Los Angeles and San Francisco.


Noel Galagher released the debut album of his solo project, Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds.

Professor Green then earned two weeks at number one with ‘Read All About It’.

In the album chart Coldplay returned with Mylo Xyloto, marking their fifth number one charting album.



October was a month dominated by Motor Sport but sadly more so for grief rather than success. Sebastian Vettel retained his Formula One drivers’ championship by finishing third at the Japanese Grand Prix, becoming the youngest driver to ever defend the title.

Australian Casey Stoner won his second Moto GP world championship after winning his home grand prix. However this was marred by the death of Italian Marco Simoncelli at the Malaysian grand prix just a week later. This came just shortly after Brit Dan Wheldon had passed away at the IndyCar World Championship after a 15 car pile-up caused the race to be abandoned. It was a demoralising few weeks for motor sport after losing two stars in just a short space of time.

Rugby league

The 16th Super League grand final took place at Old Trafford in Manchester with Leeds winning the title for the 5th time after defeating St. Helens 32-16, Warrington won the league leader shield after winning the league stage.


That wasn’t the only drama to take place at Old Trafford in October as one of the biggest shocks in English football took place Playing at Old Trafford for the first time as premier league leaders, Manchester City stunned their rivals in the Manchester derby as they put six past Manchester United and won 6-1. This was Manchester United’s worst home defeat since 1955.
