Vacuum motors too strong...

whatever next?

...Toilet paper tested to see if it's strong enough to wipe a butt?

I'm no great fan of the EU, but testing oven gloves to make sure that the user won't burn themselves on hot things (which is kinda the point!) seems quite sensible to me.

Pretty sure that Trading Standards would be on top of that if they weren't.

EU Anti-Corruption Unit corrupt

"Richard Howitt, Labour MEP for East of England, said he had met senior EU officials about the case. ‘These allegations are credible and very serious,’ he said. ‘The EU has to have zero tolerance to corruption. It is clear the existing investigation is inadequate. It appears it could be a cover-up. Maria Bamieh has been let down badly.’"

Interesting

"Sian John, a security strategist at Symantec, said: "It looks like it comes from a Western organisation. It's the level of skill and expertise, the length of time over which it was developed.""

hmm, wonder what nation that was?

(Another quick in and out post, then gone again)
So put your T-shirt back on & be a man!

I said here previously that the UK Parliament was very unlikely to vote for across the board British "boots on the ground" to deal with this matter. I said that it was most likely that Special Forces operations would be sanctioned as the best way forward. I'm pleased to confirm that I was correct in my assessment, which is now being publicised.
That was obvious for many to see. however, just like the civilian pukes in the MOD...

..."Why the hell don't the MOD keep their traps shut? This sort of release costs the lives of our soldiers." You just have to gloat regardless of the consequences!

Apologies for the source on the first one.
Why? Regardless of who reports it, it's happening...

...or are you implying that it's all crap?

Special Forces

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!

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.

We no longer have a Police Force over here, it's now a service...

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!
