Looking good...

UKIP secures 2nd Westminster MP

...time for the "Yellow" crows to eat humble pie...

"As for the Lib Dems, not only were they again overhauled by the Greens, but they secured a derisory 349 votes - their lowest total ever."

...& will get much lower in 6 months time!

Schoolboy facing suspension

Have to agree with one commenter: If kids want them, they can get them on the way to school, regardless of the school's health policy!

Crime rates are dropping, how is that a system which 'continues to fail society consistently'?

Crime rates are dropping because an increasing number of crime reports results in that a crime can not be proved.

& all because the coppers are too busy serving themselves.

As to be expected from someone who loves the rule of law. A law & it's deterrents which continue to fail society consistently.

What are you talking about? Crime rates are dropping, how is that a system which 'continues to fail society consistently'?

So, what's your answer?

So what is my answer to what exactly? Whats the question?

What fantasy world are you living in?

Police fail to report 1 in 5 crimes

No wonder they're falling...

...too many like you within the system!

Oh dear...

& they'll win due to too many BHL's in the system - what a waste of taxpayers money!

Thank you for proving my point. You just stated that criminals aren't people like you and me. You have in effect dehumanized them.

Isn't that what they did to their victims?

Yes so? Do you want to do the exact same thing they did? Then how are you any better?

Want to try putting something specific you desire advice upon? Frequently being on the same page helps in a discussion. Some times reducing an issue to a specific thing causes the uncertainty to go away. You should try it.


On any given day, what prevents a criminal from being a victim? I'm sure there will be lots of vengeful answers to this, all which reveal the thoughts of the speaker. That or silence.

Maybe you should try understanding your own post, then look again at the question!

I see there are a bunch of yo-yos here, who are more judgmental than sharia law. I would have hoped that humanity had progressed past 4th century thinking, but troglodytes seem to persist like the cockroach.

I expect the next thing out of their mouths is that Obama should propose mandatory victim insurance just like mandatory health insurance, after all no one should suffer the horrors of being a victim.

About time it was taken seriously

"There were 75 live criminal investigations at the moment into child exploitation in the West Midlands and a further 210 cases were being looked into, the council said."

That's just one council & how many in Britain?

Nice one UK!(Sorry Yanks)

Definitely a Darwin Award...

Pedestrian collides with lorry

Why

Stop & think!


Having had a pedestrian run into the side of my Land Rover while stopped at a set of traffic lights I can quite see how a pedestrian could collide with a lorry.

But your vehicle was stopped. For serious head injuries as reported, the lorry must have been travelling at a fair speed.

@Bernie - I also wonder about that comment, a bit uncharitable considering, but I have found this

Witnesses at the scene described how the man was fatally injured as he leaned out to check the road.

You've stated publicly that you would love to go out in an Eddie Stobbart truck. The only difference between theirs & mine is the lettering on the side. Some time previous to your comment, I made you an offer which you did not accept.

Uncharitable? you know my history so your comment was uncharitable! Leaning out to check the road? Confirmation the Darwin Award was earned!
