No!
Anyway, who would enforce it?

I may be wrong but doesn't the Common belong to the people but managed by the local authority?

As per subject header really.

Whilst in town today, I noticed that the Swifts had left.

The sound of the summer has gone!

Swallows and House Martins are still nesting with chicks.

My feeling is that our legal system has some good checks and balances, and one of those is that a public prosecution should always be in the public interest. It's not entirely straight forward so the best thing is to read the CPS Code for Crown Prosecutors. It's somewhat unsatisfactory, but the public interest test is not easily applied by a non-specialist on the basis of a few paragraphs of alleged evidence in the local paper, so it means at times that what is the right and proper decision in the circumstances isn't necessarily easy to understand, but then if the decision isn't easy to understand then justice is not obviously being seen to be done.

In my opinion I think the justice system, on many occasions, does not give the victims of crime the support that they deserve but seems reluctant to deliver a suitable sentence to the perpetrators of crimes letting them off with "a smack on the wrist" allowing them back into society to commit further crime.
In my opinion "life" should be life and those that abuse and kill children should be hanged.

I am not sure about this.
I have been offloading such unnecessary items as I can.
So I have been talked into a family trust. The intent is that a much loved family home of over 30
years now will be protected as I pass on the long and lonely road. Taxes have to be paid at some time.
My theme for the night is of the anarchy and the undoubted genetic humour of my child

I have to declare stuff for HMRC ,mostly for money laundering ,
So I emailed my NI number today so she could fill in a form .
These are the replies over an afternoon.

Is this your cereal number?....

Hospital number?...

Ok ok I got it…….NI number
Cereal number was funny though!!

Maybe lunatic asylum number?

I gave up and went to the pub!
ce

I have been doing a similar exercise with much encouragement from my heirs although my collections of various "tat" have not been received very graciously.
Oh well I'll see you up the tip.

Bloggo, just noticed you're back after a long absence.

Thanks for the "welcome back" Biker. Been away for a while but looking forward to adding to the debates again.

What I want to know is, where's Tony Blair? You remember him? The middle East envoy? What's he doing? Apart from counting his money.

He is probably looking into a mirror and admiring himself. It's about time he left the world stage and give us all a break.

Is it not the case that Hamas are a terrorist organisation, but was elected into power? Is it not the case Hamas will not stop shelling Israel? What are the issues with this conflict?

In a nutshell, Hamas believe that the Isrealis are in their land and they want it back.

Tied house for mine, which is why I decided early on I was going to buy my own.

When I decided I wanted my own house, I saved and I took an evening job to earn some extra money and I stopped smoking and drinking.
It wasn't easy but it had to be done.

It would seem that the ruling classes never miss an opportunity, legal or not, to get their noses in the trough.
What a miserable and despicable bunch of self serving wasters.

Well I for one wish the venture good fortune but it will need to be a very special attraction to get people to what is a fairly remote site.
I will certainly give it a whirl.

Yes, I agree. A prime example of how lawbreakers treat the justice system with contempt. It is appalling that this situation should arise.

Ghettoisation

That's not an argument against it, rather a description. The prices of these flats will soon drop once the social allocation starts to fill up. I feel sorry for those who have bought into the Newbury vision only to see their view blocked by graffiti, littering and foul mouthed neighbours.

Although a good day out, is it just me but £18 to get in, £5 to park, £2 for a bottle of water, £5 for a crepe (no, not that) and £4 for a pastie, seem a bit rich. I don't think I' ll be going next year.

One third of all the tax revenue goes on welfare

That may be so but what has it to do with some, the richer of us, paying less tax on their income than those paying PAYE?

Tax avoidance and tax evasion were two of the reasons that Greece's economy has collapsed.
Could the same happen to the UK?

I don't think that anyone is saying that it is always safe to ride on the pavement.

Like I said, sometimes cycling on the pavement is not dangerous to pedestrians, but sometimes it is.

To answer your substantive point: I think the situation should remain as it is, except, perhaps there should be something done about the more 'aggressive' riders, but to me, this is a very low priority and doesn't merit any more legal investment.

That' alright then.
Are you sure you're not IOMMI??

Cars rarely travel on the pavement.

I guess it's all about the "common link" in accidents. The common link is always the pedestrian, so let's ban walking. See, problem solved. laugh.gif

There are many accidents that don't involve pedestrians.

Agreed, so why is it not legal?

Because they sometimes collide with pedestrians. Isn't that dangerous?

I actually agree with both outcomes, I don't really see how the owner of a dog could be charged if it attacks somebody in his home. It is a terrible thing to happen, but what real offence is there? Perhaps the dog should be destroyed, but you can't go round prosecuting people just for having pets. As far as the Facebook guy goes, he incited violence, not once, twice or thrice but four times publicly, including saying "do dome coppers in".

Yep, I agree.

Just to be clear (and definitely not being pedantic) do you mean "where the money at risk was not public money"? Maybe I am cynical, but I would have thought that in the public sector public money being at risk would not be a high priority, if the phrase has any meaning at all.

Sorry, you are right, it is not clear.
In my opinion and experience the way that money is spent in the private sector is so much more accountable than the public sector. In particular purchasing and procurement seems to be less controlled when the expense is from the public purse.
