In other words we are building crap roads on the cheap. Perhaps we should go back to the Romans.

It's been known for quite some time that we skimp on quality when surfacing
our roads....all roads. Back to the Roman road days?....'what a load of "Cobble....ers'...ho-hum.

Totally agree. Also, I believe some time in the future that's going to come back & bite their ass. However, I don't think our current crop of mopheads in power give a shyte.

Trouble is the Council tax will go up to compensate.

Like everyone else, councils will have to economise. If councils have become
dependent on the income from parking fines to balance their books then this
is a pretty poor state of affairs to be in.

Exactly. Welcome to the real world of trying to manage a Local Council, with falling Government funding, and residents still complaining about lack of services ......

But have they managed?...evidence then that councils have been offering services
that they really could not afford without adopting creative income policies.
I'd suggest that during these austere times our government suspends all green
policies that have been forced upon all councils. The resultant financial
savings to local councils may go some way to bridging their budget shortfalls.

You'll be surprised to hear that I agree. The BBC WAS the best broadcaster in the world, but that was the past!

As for Rape, I'm sorry but I have personal issues with this. We need to be cruel to be kind, put Castration on the sentencing list. Most men have their brains somewhere in the region between their ears.

However, there are many with their brains between their legs.

I would say that the majority are in the latter. If we go down that route we will be no better than the arabs that chop off hands for stealing, or stone women to death for adultery. Want to bring back hanging? Tar & feathering is a good one?


Had that been your daughter, would you be saying that?

Sounds like you want burkas, and chastity belts. Shame on you for blaming the victim.

I am disappointed in both of you.


I'm extremely disappointed with a so-called Englishman that fails to understand his own language.

Just where in that statement does it show any disregard for the welfare of that child?

Reminds me of the (possibly apocryphal) policy deployed by one large multi-national a good few years ago which forbade men to have "facial hair" and women from wearing short dresses/skirts. A few days notice as given of this new "dress code", which gave staff what might be termed an "unfair advantage" as on the day the code was to commence no women were to be seen wearing short skirts/dresses, and no men facial hair. However there were any number of service engineers roaming around in very short dresses and any number of typists who had "sprouted" facial hair. Needles to say the code was reviewed rather rapidly, much to the chagrin of clothing shops and theatrical supplies shops....

If they are not out of their heads through drink, they are right or left wing extremists and subversives, or just plain one sandwich short of a picnic. Just tick the appropriate box.

Blaming the victim????? That is not what I said or intimated at all. I was blaming the parents

Now, blaming the victim's family?

and the rapists. Shame on you for even suggesting it.

A very young underage girl has been violated in the most terrible way, how about thinking about her future welfare. I am disappointed in both of you.

If you hadn't bought into the blame the victim crowd, you might be asking why were the criminals out after midnight, where where their parents, who taught them rape is acceptable?

Every time someone asks a question about the victim, or their family they are teaching that doing the crime is acceptable, er explainable, in some circumstance.

I don't care if she is buck naked and soused at 3 in the morning in the red light district, it still isn't acceptable! Essentially you are saying it is okay to steal from a house, car, business if they forgot to lock it.

I just can't go along with this thought process and feel I must point out how wrong it is.

And I'm glad there was a man in Cleveland who understood that principle when Amanda Berry kicked out the door and got out naked, rather than seeing her as an opportunity to commit a crime.

Chris, I detest this kind of thought process and I suggest you reexamine how you came to be asking questions about the victim or her family and what effect those kinds of questions have on others in society.
