    @tom You wouldn’t know the difference between rabbit and chicken in many meals.

  • who grew up at a time where every day was better than the next, and they had nothing to do with it, and to this day still seem to take everything for granted.

    @tom members of my family, still rejoice at how great the 70s and early 80s were. They miss the days of high inflation, strikes, power cuts , fuel shortages etc.. 😉

    It has never been the police’s job to find evidence of guilt, and always to be objective

    @tom their job is that, true.

    But how many PC’s only log evidence that supports a possible conviction, and ignore anything that doesn’t?

    It could well be that this sort of thing is going on across the board, and it’s only when the alleged perpetrator is…[Read more]

    @tom There was a formal shift (am sure you can google about it) as katy above suggests, that the base position should be that all rape victims are telling the truth. Rather than initially treating it as an accusation that needs to be proved.

    Evidence should be then looked at to support/disprove this (that the rape victim is telling the truth.)…[Read more]

    @tom thanks for your detailed response. i actually tried looking for the ‘blower fan controller’ as per http://www.autoinsider.co.uk/problems/problem-10641-citroen-xsara-blower-speed-control-module.php earlier today but couldn’t find it and no reference to one in haynes electrical section..

    so ignition hack may not work?

    @tom

    I think you’ll find you have misquoted me.

    “I have never been offended in my life, i think people are just soft. Suck it up buttercup.”

    You have no argument.

    Indeed. Can’t really be arsed to construct one tbh.

    But you did ask for thoughts – well I think your OP is very poorly thought through and that playing the card you are playing…[Read more]

  • DonaldTrump replied to the topic Why is everything racist now? in the forum Banter 7 months ago

    @tom I have no point to make, beyond the point that “I have never been offended so nobody else ever should be” is a dick move. You’re a devastatingly handsome young white man, so maybe you should just ‘check your privilege’ as they say.

  • DonaldTrump replied to the topic Why is everything racist now? in the forum Banter 7 months ago

    I have never been offended in my life, i think people are just soft. Suck it up buttercup.

    @tom It speaks volumes for your character that you can still say this despite having suffered a great deal of prejudice living for many years on the shitty side of the apartheid regime. Well done you.

  • Phil replied to the topic Is Donald Trump racist? in the forum Banter 7 months, 1 week ago

    That comment isn’t going to get him removed from power.

    @tom Now he’s claiming he didn’t say it. A room full of people were there and Sen Dick Durbin is absolutely clear that he not only used the language as reported but did so repeatedly.

    Surely this makes Trump not only a self-confessed racist but a demonstrable liar (as if we didn’t know…[Read more]
