    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.

    Venezuela wasn't forced into starvation by outside sanctions but rather by the corruption and incompetence of its own leadership and government. Socialism fails yet again.

    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

    Lets call a spade a spade The Iranians have timed this perfectly, we have no functioning parliament at the moment until the new Prime Minister is installed and has appointed his cabinet. Once we have had time to sort this domestic reshuffle then I reckon they will back off having had their fun at tweaking The Lions Tale. This situation should act as a wake up call and make us realise in no uncertain terms we need a major defence review/overhaul before any other Nations realise we are at this moment totally unprepared for any kind of serious conflict(if they haven't already) North Korea,China,Argentina as well as Iran must realise Maggie Thatcher is no longer around and neither are our superior Armed Forces. We must treat this as a priority as at the moment a few lightly armed speedboats and one helicopter have got us scuppered !!!! Sod all this Brexit lark and it's obvious distractions it has created After 31 October... The silly games can finally come to a conclusion. And then we can get down to the serious business of running our own Nation and regaining our Pride. As Solid International defence is not and never will be negotiable.

    So: Spain (also a member of the EU) failed to act on those EU sanctions, leaving the Brits holding the baby. Think you'd be surprised what the US can "cause us to do", especially with our current Gov. The sanctions are not against Iran, but I doubt the Iranians see it that way. OK, we'll just call it economic warfare then, where the strategy is to destabilise a Regime by impoverishing it's people into open revolt, which can include hybrid and cyber warfare. So ultimately tit for tat, until things escalate out of control.

    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.

    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 ?

    I don't know about refs enforcing the rules. On Thursday Hull played London and twice, when London were taking conversions, Hull players were encroaching on the pitch. It was so obvious that even SKY noticed it, but no action from the referee although London should have been awarded penalties in front of the sticks as well as being able to retake the kick that was missed.

    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!

    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!=.

    They only take into account statistics that show that their hypothesis is correct and there's a big problem. In other words they don't let reality invade cloud cuckoo land.

    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.

    I think Warrington need to wise up as far as the refs are concerned. Many important games are won by fine margins & getting refereeing decisions to go in your favour is a massive help. Successful teams know how to bend the rules long enough to take advantage before the ref gets fed up & gives a penalty. If the ref blew for every infringement the games would become unwatchable so they let a lot go. Saints,Wigan & Leeds are masters of the dark art & get away with murder. On Friday Saints were offside at every play the ball ...no wonder they have a great "line speed".

    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.

    If (and it's a big IF) the DVLA actually owed me money, I would expect them to send me a letter to that effect with a cheque attached, not to have to make a claim!

    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.
