    I find your attempts at censorship rather confirms Observer's disquiet at the extension of PC philosophy which this ban, which has yet to affect any ad at all, represents. It is a clear and distressing reduction in our liberties in an area which is beyond what I believe should be the remit of the ASA, namely social engineering. Free speech is being eroded by policies such as this as well as commenters who divert any expression of an opinion by constructing personal attacks on those who express them; in Obs' case usually hoping to start a discussion. He doesn't want you to agree, he wants you to discuss - it is what this place is for.

    Perhaps clothing manufacturers could step in and make all clothing stab resistant. If stabbing somebody has little effect then stabbing knife crime would go down.

    Note I said attempts so I did not overestimate your effect as you suggest however you consistently try to stop people having opinions that you don't agree with. That is what PC is about: controlling the language in order to control the ideas that can be considered, you do it all of the time.

    Don't want to appear too pedantic but I always thought a bacon buttie can't be called a bacon buttie if it's cut diagonally otherwise that would make it a bacon sandwich which is a bit posh for us northerners. 😁 Bill

    Reading the question asked it is a loaded question anyway. a six foot bearded man that identifies as female. fair enough. (that almost describes me apart from the six foot bit as i have shrunk over the years so only five foot eleven and a half. oh and i definitely do not identify as female as many a lass from my past could testify to.🤫🤫 ) Would you address HIM as her or madam the loaded part. The interviewer admits in the first bit that it is a HIM and not a HER that is being interviewed. (also i have never heard any female referred to a madam apart from under certain circumstances. 🤔🕵️‍♀️ ) The correct answer to the question, given the information available,would be "however the person instructed me to after i had asked them how they would like to be addressed, even if it was Thor god of thunder and part time gardener from the planet zog"

    I attended this years Mela, as I have since its inception and it just goes from strength to strength. So wonderful and uplifting to see the people of the town come together in celebration , from all the diverse cultures our town boasts. The food was absolutely superb and the acts and entertainers did a great job. A beautiful day that flew in the face of the recent rise in hate crimes within the town and in the country. Love and hope beats hate every time. https://www.warrington-worldwide.co.uk/2019/07/09/warrington-mela-celebrates-cultural-harmony/

    Well, the way in which the top echelon of the EU has been "appointed" should convince Leavers they made the right decision, nothing democratic about it at all.

    The Scouts walked, alongside round 2000 other walkers. The tradition continues although nowadays it is not the highlight of the summer for many. People still gave money to walkers and there were still marching bands. Long may it continue, in spite of negative comments from across the pond where I suppose size is everything.

    I received the following today: DVLA:You are eligible to receive a vehicle tax refund. Please submit your request via ukdriverf.inal-give-back.co.uk/vehicle14 Thank It was sent from a mobile number. It's an obvious phishing attempt as Government Agencies don't send texts offering to give you money! Also their internet address would end in gov.uk . Please be aware that this sort of fraud attempt is becoming quite common. I haven't been tempted to open the link and have deleted the text. I'll probably report it to Action Fraud.

    A waste of time and money in that case surely? If the Scots truly want independence, they should insist that any future referendum be UK wide. There would undoubtably be at least two thirds majority in their favour 🤣.

    Not that bad an idea actually and if the police think it may save the life of someone who's partner has violent tendencies, then maybe it's a good thing. When you think of it, there's no need for them to have a sharp point, after all their main role is to cutting rather than stabbing. If knives with points capable of stabbing someone were classed as daggers it'd make it much easier for the police to get a prosecution. Bill

    And remember we were left out of the post war Marshall Aid plan.. Denied help with A Bomb production.And told to "Get out of Suez(1956) or be bankrupted by massive US financial powers" Plus Joe Kennedy US ambassador in London(1940) strongly suggested withholding all War Aid as we were already a beaten nation and Herr Hitler would be in London in six months.Thankfully Roosevelt thought differently and replaced the IRA sympathiser at the first opportunity. These facts are conveniently brushed under the carpet of history.

    What a retarded, backward, narrow minded, ignorant and wrong headed view of the real world. Another quality post from the forum Nazi. We depend on British citizens for our national sporting heroes, it's just a minority of neanderthal idiots who can't quite grasp it.

    Actually Obs, FDR was willing to have America join the war prior to Pearl Harbor, because he felt that Britain had to survive to be the base from which to defeat Germany and. told Churchill so, but he had to protect himself from the anti war lobby led by Charles Lindbergh. Pearl Harbor gave FDR the tool to overcome that opposition. America could have just fought Japan, there was no need at that time for them to take on Germany too, regardless of any paper war declaration, but they did. The End , cos a man convinced against his will is n'eer convinced at all.

    Cut a bacon buttie? what a novel idea. Does it make it taste better? On a slight tangent but to do with health. a recent study has suggested that every pint of bee over five pints per week will shorten your life by fifteen minutes.🤔 Now then according to my calculations, given that i started drinking about age 17 up until present.averaging the number of beers i drink over that time gives some very interesting results. Either 1. I should have lived until the year 2247.🧙‍♂️ or 2. I died in the year 1793.👻

    Seems green advisors to Gov are recommending a 20% reduction in the number of cattle raised by farmers, in order to cut down on greenhouse gas emissions ! Apparently cattle farts are estimated to contribute 14% methane to our atmosphere. This will mean a reduction in eating meat and drinking milk, to which science is offering ground insect burgers as an alternative source of protein ! Now if animal farts are causing such a problem for the future of the enviroment, shouldn't that include 7 billion humans too ?

    The committee on climate change did indeed just choose the number by making it up along with other fantasy numbers. They want the reduction in eating AS WELL as feeding the cattle more digestible foodstuffs as advocated by Algy! However for me their credibility is shot to pieces because it is part of the ludicrous zero-carbon by 2050 pushed by £Trillion May and the chairman of the committee is none other than John Selwyn Gummer, who is also proposing genetic modifications to plants and animals. What could possibly go wrong, and do these people never learn!

    Just a slight correction Stall; the reason there are US crosses in Normandy and elsewhere is because of Pearl Harbour; and the reason the US fought in Europe was because Germany declared war on the US on 8th Dec 1941 (big mistake ). The US was probably the only economic beneficery from WW2; the UK was bankrupt and had to pay back every penny of lend lease.

    Wouldn't they fart more than the cows ? I am surprised some entrepreneur hasn't come up with a way of using the excess gas off cattle as a power source. Our MPs seem to do very well off bullsh!=.

    I think the human race is pretty great and the world is in better shape than ever ( except for liberal socialists!). All this whining about how evil and destructive we are, no mention of the great developments since the Victorian age. The air and water quality is better than it's ever been, essential services and they are essential to a civilized world, have been engineered to almost perfection. Developments in agriculture enable food to be grown in previously barren places. Still they moan ! A week after it was announced that global warming (as it was then) was about to kill us all, New York City got buried in six feet of snow ! Some people will only be happy when we are back in caves, which will only happen when gullible politicians force it on us. Surprised we are discussing this, isn't the world scheduled to end in 2000? Oops, my mistake, I think that's been moved up till next week.

    Following on from the private prosecution brought against our esteemed Mr Johnson , will it also mean than any politician can be held accountable for any statement made which is not carried out to the letter ? A PM or even a political party could even be held accountable for failing to carry out it's manifesto to the letter. What come across to me is nothing more than mud slinging against a prospective PM from an agent of the Remain side which was no less guilty of romantic fiction during the referendum campaign.

    The judgement is now online: https://www.judiciary.uk/wp-content/uploads/2019/07/2019ewhc-1709-admin-johnson-v-westminster-mags-final.pdf A damning litany of mistakes by the original District Judge. No body will be locked up P.J. The justices made it clear that lying at elections is not an offence in Statute Law. The action was also vexatious. There was no misconduct in a public office as the common law stands. Shocking that Marcus Ball got this far. Equally shocking that there Johnson made no application for costs so he had to pay his own costs too.

    A disappointing defeat for the Wire against St Helens who, as usual, got the lucky breaks in an otherwise even contest. In the first half Warrington seemed to have the upper hand but were unable to cross the try line and had to be content with a half time lead of 4-0 curtesy of 2 Declan Patton penalty kicks. Wire went further ahead after the break with another penalty kick before Hughes was, rather harshly, given a yellow card in what was not a dirty game. Saints then scored a try against the 12 man defence thanks to a forward pass obvious to everyone except the officials. Further tries and a drop goal put the visitors ahead although Jake Mamo did score in the corner to reduce the deficit. A penalty right on the final whistle made the final score of 10-21 perhaps a bit flattering to St Helens, but still a disappointing end to the Warrington contingent of the 14,200 crowd.

    Can't help you there still waiting for the money from that Nigerian prince. I usually send an email reply asking if they can send a cheque for £500 made out to bearer so that i can open a bank account as i don't currently have one. (hasn't worked yet but still hopeful.) Had any number of variations on the theme of my husband/father/best mate has died and has x million in a bank account that they are willing to share. those usually get a email with a reply of sorry for your loss or my condolences. the latest ones i get are from asda/morrisons/tesco/ bargain booze/ fred cafes with a fluorescent comic sans font saying that my coupons are ready for collection or some such. these just get deleted.

    Enshrine carbon dioxide emissions in law even though the government cannot directly control them! More pointless stupidity - in fact just the same as reducing child poverty when it is defined as a relative measure so cannot go away by definition unless everyone is uniformly poor.

    I am aware that i have dreams but not their content in any detail. Although i will admit to waking up with a death grip on the mattress and the feeling that i have just had a very narrow escape although what from i have no idea. One of my best curses to put on anybody is "may ALL your dreams come true". Much more horrible than the "may you live in interesting times"one if you really think about it. I did often wonder about what my dog was dreaming about. his little legs scrabbling away, and making small barking noises every so often. It was the blood-curdling howl that used to put the willies up me, especially at 3 in the morning. How a small dog could manage to produce a sound that would not have been out of place in your average horror movie is beyond me. werewolves would spring to mind when he did that. The funny thing is that he would often wake himself up when he did that and the stare around wondering where the noise came from.

    Seems Jeremy, I'll jump on any bandwagon in a storm, Corbyn; has moved a motion in Parliament, calling for a "Climate Emergency"; which presumably means that we (the UK), ramp up our efforts to impose a form of materialistic austerity ahead of India, China and the US, making our exports increase in price, and our energy too.
