    Black Lives Matter

    Haha! Yes that too. To be honest the first modern police force, the met in London, was set up in response to the particular set of circumstance that existed in the mid 19th century with the rapid industrialisation of the UK and the unprecedented population redistribution into rapidly growing...

    A crime reference number so I could claim the cost of a phone and a new Walkman back off my insurance company. That’s literally it in my entire lifetime...

    Black Lives Matter

    and then once they get that power their paranoia and need to protect that position runs rampant. Our police force were found to have put surveillance outside of the policing ombudsman’s office to monitor the staff going in as well as tapping the phone lines to try and get advances warning of...

    Black Lives Matter

    My personal experience has been with three forces. South Yorks (Sheffield) which could be the same force as around Doncaster to be honest. Not good. Greater Manchester. Very bad. And Notts. To be honest with Notts I’ve had no bad experiences and know good people on it but the whole town...

    Black Lives Matter

    Yeah, two of the pits my Dad managed were on the outskirts of Doncaster and another two were in North Yorkshire (both in Selby). The Yorkshire coalfields were definitely much more militant than where I am from in Notts and I’d say the sentiment is much stronger there but it persists in Notts and...

    Black Lives Matter

    I think that misses the point though that the police institutions themselves are broken. Even if you accept the tenant of requiring policing the original ideals of policing by consent and the police being the people and the people being the police is broken and not just in America, I see it...

    Black Lives Matter

    I get that @Selaws and while I also know individual police officers that I like and that are good people (both my neighbours growing up, my Dad’s wife’s eldest son) the police force is a horrible thing that has had a largely negative impact on society over the last 30/40 years, it’s quite simply...

    Let's See What Makes Your Vinyl Spin!

    Im not going to tell you not to do that but if you like your current tv and don’t want to spend lots more money a 1x2 kallax/equivalent is likely to be around $40 and the wall mounted shelves seem to start at $180 with the cheapest pro-ject one and rise from there. I’d definitely give playing...

    It sunny nearly all day in the summer so they’re really happy. It’s dark nearly all day in the winter so they’re all sad.

    Yeah exactly that. I think it’s probably because the vast majority are already pressed ready for April then June. They just want to get those sold and the money spent on them back in. The ones lagging are likely the ones still in production or whose production has been delayed by covid!
