Still haven't received one.

Our local PCSO found several 1000 at the rear of the local school......

Taxpayers money put to good use.....

....school toilet paper.... :)

That obeys the last sentence on the leaflet.

This booklet is printed on recycled paper, When you have finished with this, please recycle it.

@Nick,

It's a grand life being a Brit

Lured to Britain, worked hard, became an essential employee in an extremely esssential profession & kicked in the teeth!

"The new immigration rules do not apply to European nationals living in the UK. Under an EU directive of 2004 - relating to freedom of movement - they can bring dependent relatives - including those from outside Europe - to settle in the UK without any restrictions.

Yana says this makes her feel discriminated against for being British.

"We are friends with a Chinese woman who is married to an Irish man. Because he is an EU national they can sponsor members of her family to come from China and settle in the UK without any problem.

"They have more rights than us, although we are British. People don't believe me when I tell them this, because it seems so unfair - but it's true."

Welcome to Sunny Britain - The most undiscriminating country in the 21st century

Oh dear, while the cat's away the mice will play......

I'm a Celebrity MP...Get me out of here

"Home Secretary Theresa May was also critical of Ms Dorries decision, saying MPs are paid to serve their electorate. 'Frankly, I think an MP’s job is in their constituency and in the House of Commons.'"

"While eating kangaroo testicles or sitting by the camp fire she will miss the crucial EU budget vote and the Chancellor's mini-budget statement"

Probably because they're the only ones she can get hold of!

Hey Del-boy, instead of swanning off on a free holiday & pretending to state you're working for the country's interests, how about returning home & defending & supporting our home grown talent? (pun intended}

What a Charlie

The only danger to this guy is........

"He has so far refused to supply British supermarkets because of issues with pricing, preferring to build up relationships with smaller retailers."

So get your butt back here Del-boy & protect this guy's business from the thieving, conniving muppets that run the supermarkets, as they're not really going to sit still for Charlie's arrogance!

Shock, horror, SB giving a thumbs up for an Englishman! I Say, Whatever Next?

Operational policing is a specialist job which requires training. Is it right that someone who is a political appointment and has not had that experience should be able to hire and fire a Chief Constable? How long will it be before a CC argues against budget cuts and is got rid of? Sixty per cent of the public don’t want party politics to be brought into policing, and I agree.

Just think though of all those wondrous H&S policies the politically appointed
person then can introduce into the force. A Police man will require a certificate
to run, just in case he has to run after a baddy. Working at heights certification
in case he has to climb over a fence or chase a baddy across the roof of a
building. Ear defenders in case he's parked up along the motor way for more than
half an hour. Statuary meal brakes, half way through arresting a criminal all
have to stop and take a 20 minutes break. All police dogs to have their teeth
removed in case they bite someone. Must be loads of H&S regulations that
the new politically correct appointee can introduce just to make the job safer
and more congenial to all.

Lets not forget the latest H&S craze, Managing Staff Fatigue. It is fairly widely
known that if the UK was ever to get involved in another world war, 90% of
H&S at work gets revoked. Which tells one something, most of H&S contributes to
industrial inefficiency...but then we've always known that from the very start.

Ah, but have you noticed that the MSF is only used for the tired overworked office staff?

The H&SE has contacted the pen & pencil manufacturers to see if there is any way to have their weight reduced as many workers are suffering with leaden wrists.

They've been moaning that their computers should be used with all mail sent electronically & that all offices should be paperless!

Now where have I heard that before?

I think there is more a problem with limp wrists rather than leaden ones!


Quite agree & we know where most of them are........

Sorry Nick, I'm going to have to call you in on that one. The HSE do a very necessary job. I haven't got the figures to hand, but every year there are far too many industrial accidents in factories and on building sites. We should not be complacent about that, and I have had some HSE experience over my career.

A lot of H&S over the years was very valuable and needed especially with regards
to building site, mining and the use of industrial machinery. COSHH also was
very valuable too, bought to the attention of industry just how dangerous some
of the chemicals in use were. But later, in the 90's risk assessment came along
and it gave the industry reasons to find risk, in many areas of the work place,
when really there was none.

Mr Andy "Pleb" at it again.....

"Pleb" denies rogue action over aid

"It is very insulting. I take deep offence at the suggestion that I would ever behave in that way," Mr Mitchell told the committee."

Really Andy me-boy? In that case, why did you resign?

What I cannot understand is this: -

Government spending is deeply in the crapper......

Massive cuts are being made here at home........

So, just where is all this money coming from for foreign aid?

Del-boy, you wanna get the economy moving again? Ideas like this won't help you.....

New network of road tolls

& this is certainly not going to help, except line your bulging pockets......

Will he or won't he, that is the question!

Hey Butch baby, you reading the papers today?

There's something in them that might just upset you.....

"It was certainly Margaret Thatcher and Admiral Leach who changed the attitude of the rest of them altogether.

He said we could have it (the Task Force) ready by Sunday and that was just what Maggie Thatcher wanted to hear.

Thank goodness we had a decent person in charge, she got it going."

& get this Butch, she was a conservative......something which you are proving are not!

Cattle trucks return
Well, it beats me!!...just can't see what all the fuss is about here.

But Lord Myners said:'I was astonished by the response which suggested there could be a cattle class carriage at the back or one for toffs at the front'.

Well then toff, when was the last time you travelled on a First Great Western
High Speed Train? Did you not notice that the standard class travel coaches
are already maxed out with so much seating that they constitute "Cattle class"
in their own right, more so than back in the days of the old 3rd class. Clearly
you have not noticed because if you have travelled on these trains then you've
more than likely travelled 1st class...."pillock".
If the train companies were to adopt another standard of travel it wont occur
whilst their running with old stock trains...to expensive to modify. This idea
will be for the new stock HS1's etc where they have the option to run extra
coaching stock which could include this other class of travel.

Quite obvious from the photo in that article that an extra seat/row could be added. The passengers were not sholder to sholder.
And they could strengthen the "luggage racks" and get some passengers up there.

Plenty of room to modify for, or build new, 3rd Class. LOL ;-)
