Except TM shot one in the back running away (he had released on bail papers in his pocket) no wonder the gypsy were fuming, they all brought it upon themselves. But if the law won't protect you, the whole thing blows up in your face. Now TM has a police station outside his house. . . . . .
Yep I know it wasn't a clear cut case but at the end of the day if they weren't in his house they wouldn't have been shot
I just googled it to remind me of what happened

I wasnt specifically thinking of TM ,but at the time he was presented as a have a go hero by the tabloids. In reality one suspects he was frightened and at his wits end having suffered a number of breakins , and tabloid
law and order shit did him no favours in the courts.

There are those who not only feel thay have an inalienable right to take the piss, they get very upset if this is called into question by those whom they think are 'lesser' or 'weaker'.

I suppose if so confronted ,we all have to make our own judgement calls,the only certainty is that no one will agree with you, especially galling when coming from people who have no experiance of being so threatened or idea of what is like .

On a less serious note.. Has anyone in the UK received their letter from Boris yet? Poor old boy must have wrist ache writing to us all, not too sure if him licking all those stamps is overly hygienic either (or will Cummins offer his tongue?) Just hope it doesn't pop on the doormat on April 1st, the coincidence would be too much to bear...

This COVID-19 pandemic is resembling a Stephen King novel more and more each day. Now Trump is saying 200,000 deaths, if we are lucky, in the US alone. I THINK there is a zero missing in Trump’s estimate. Hope I am wrong. If you just figure 1% percentage of population that might die, then 2,000,000 is the more probable figure than 200,000.

There is way too much conflicting news, advice, opinion etc. for anyone to have a reliable picture (even if that were possible) Latest headline here is: 'Virus outbreak in UK showing signs of slowing down...' HM Queens son and heir is fit and well after being diagnosed with it then 'self isolating' for a week and working from home! Yet these sit cheek by jowl with other stories showing emergency hospitals being built, warnings that 'six months' social distancing may not be enough... You wouldn't want to bet on the outcome, but you'd sure love to know.... (or at least be around to see it!)

When the weather forecaster predicted rain and you are drenched, you might well believe him/her.

Jim, you are focused on the wrong numbers here! The president has clearly stated that the only RISING numbers we should be concerned with are his daily viewers!


"President Trump is a ratings hit. Since reviving the daily White House briefing Mr. Trump and his coronavirus updates have attracted an average audience of 8.5 million on cable news, roughly the viewership of the season finale of 'The Bachelor.' Numbers are continuing to rise..." (Mar 29, 2020)

It's a shame Yahoo can't afford his wages.... (Does the name : Michael Fish have any significance in the US?)

Defending one’s self and defending one’s property are two separate things, in a court of law. That may change if outright anarchy is a result of this pandemic.
I've always said if you're on my property you'll get "the bat" legal , if I chase you down the road and give you "the bat" assault.

According to Trump and a recently-fired talking head on Faux Noize, the whole deal's Just "another impeachment hoax."
Hope this one works.

Trump says Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, is a sick puppy. Trump, once again, displaying presidential leadership and presidential bearing.

So you hated the government. You hated politicians. You hated Washington insiders. So, you voted for Trump. Now, see what you got?

Meanwhile. Our Mr.T. today announced a new plan that provides 75% of worker salaries to be sent directly to employers for distribution. Stern warnings not to abuse this benefit. Keeps people in their jobs or re-hired if already laid off. This is in addition to a 70% EI benefit for unemployed due to COVID.

Have not heard of such evolving plans in the US. Is there much more for workers than the one time cheque of 1400 signed by Trump?

One time 1200$ check. Equal to 1 months pay at federal minimum wage of 7.50/hr.

Sounds unlivable right? That's because federal minimum wage is UNLIVABLE.

Those on unemployment will receive an extra $600 per week. THIS is what will sustain people. Republicans argued that the unemployed don't deserve it.
