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!

Capaldi to return for season 9

""Yes, he’s confirmed,” Moffat said, although he later added that Jenna Coleman, who has played the Time Lord’s companion Clara Oswald for the past two years, had not, something that could fuel rumors in the U.K. press that she is going to leave the show following the upcoming Christmas special."

Looked pretty obvious to me :-(

So... What does this little ditty say about the caliber behind those "MSCE" qualifications?...


Five-year-old passes Microsoft exam

A boy from Coventry has become the youngest computer specialist in the world.

Ayan Qureshi is now a Microsoft Certified Professional after passing the tech giant's exam when he was just five years old...




All just "child's play"?...

IT is what you make it...

This post says a lot about your calibre!

You ever heard of two words...

Taking "sexism" too far?

Oops, wrong shirt

One comment stands out: - "Poor Dr Matt Taylor. He landed on a comet and the only thing people seem to talk about are his tattoos and his shirt."

If anything, I think the real outrage her should be the fact that he only went to jail for 2,5 years or something. I think rape should be punished with longer jail sentences.

Well said! Doesn't say much for the justice system though!

The only way to handle rapists

Some very valid points raised in this report...

Where does one draw the line?

...personally, any man that has to get a woman drunk so that he can have sex is a coward!

Extending the threat?

Russian warships in Australian waters

"Your reaction is not that surprising because we do rarely go this way," spokesman Maxim Raku told Fairfax Media. "We really don't break any rules, we stick to international law, so why should we be seen as a danger?"

So why do it now?
