It was reported in the Record today that a serial burglar accused a Judge of giving him too long a sentence. The burglar was given 5 years and the Judge said: " Because you may harbour a grievance I'm prepared to reduce the sentence to 4 1/2 years". wub.gif


It is now law that any person who pleads guilty prior to his / her trial must be given a discount on the sentence that would have been given had they taken it to a trial and been found guilty. This includes being given a discount for pleading on the day of the trial and saving the witnesses the ordeal of giving evidence and using up even more court time. It's a sliding scale. A bit like the money you pay for cancelling a holiday. The earlier you cancel, the more money you get back. Well with them - the earlier you plead guilty, the bigger the discount. The discount can be as much as 25-30%.

Do you have any favourite racist jokes?

I neither tell racist jokes nor allow them to be told in my presence. I will gladly be described as politically correct because of that.

Many people have their feelings hurt on a daily basis , who do we sue? The saying that 'crime doesn't pay' seems to need updating to 'crime does pay' . Unfortunately that is the society we are living in nowadays , big changes needed , long overdue.

I wid stick them all in portacabin loos, place them in the middle of a windswept, barren airfield and use them for flour bombing target practice, and that goes fur shiney ersed cooncil pen pushers that are a waste of mah cooncil tax.

Now it's the 'Elf and Safety brigade's turn go bananas (again)


After 10 years as a Lollipop man, Mr John Hunter, a former council roads maintenance inspector says "After 40 years working for the council, I've resigned from my job as a Lollipop man in Edinburgh.

He is loved by parents and children alike according to reports, and as the children form a queue on the pavement he hands out sweets and gives them a high five. Apparently one parent complained that Mr Hunter had given a pupil with a nut allergy a nutty chocolate by mistake. That complaint is reasonable given the circumstances of course. But says Mr Hunter, "It's the first complaint I've had in working with the council for 40 years, but now I'm suddenly a danger to children for giving them sweets and a high five."

Sweets with nuts I can understand, but a high five, approved by the parents, a danger to children on the pavement rolleyes.gif

PC, HR, H&S were reasonable and fair minded organizations with good intention to begin with, but any respect they once had is diminishing by the day.

I don't know anyone who has any respect for the PC Brigade.

This Country has survived for centuries without them.

Who are they anyway and what good have they ever done ??? wacko.gif

Since politicians rarely get it right there can be no such thing as Politically Correct; or correctness.

A more meaningful term should be suggested.
On that note I can now place my vote.
