  1. Wow i feel like ive just gone way back in time reading that. No backtracking at all, As I said originally all mainstream parties are behind GRA amendment. The consultation is still on track and advancing well in Scotland supported by feminist and non feminist mainstream groups alike. I don't intend to engage further with such antiquated views which clearly go against scientifically proven medical evidence and progressive societal change. Fortunately there appears more enlightened people making the important decisions which will affect lives of others.
  2. So that even before the GRA being changed there are plenty of examples?. How therefore is the GRA proposals going to change that. You don't check now to see if that person is a woman or not. Are you suggesting that this is done in future and if so how - physical inspection?? If they are breaking the law now I don't see how this is going to stop a very very small minority continuing to do it. It certainly isn't going to encourage transgender people to do it who as you admit by the vast majority don't have nefarious intent anyway. I didn't drop anything. The point had been made and didn't n
  3. I am aware of the AFL case and they have agreed to take each matter on a case by case basis. Others have been rejected. Each sport should follow that approach. It is for the governing body of that sport to make their own provision and act appropriately. CAS can intervene if required for both sides. Due process in action. I am aware of the edited footage of the feminist assault and also the unedited footage plus the abuse hurled from a vocal but very very small minority on both sides of the argument on social media. Neither are representative of the vast majority. If we listened and acted
  4. Been a while since I posted on here but I have to respond to the frankly ridiculous last comment regarding the GRA proposed amendments which are: Removing the need for a medical diagnosis of gender dysphoria before being able to apply for gender recognition. The current need to be assessed and diagnosed by clinicians is seen as an intrusive requirement by the trans community Proposing options for reducing the length and intrusiveness of the gender recognition system. Ironically it will reduce the reliance on the "beleaguered NHS" as significant time and effort (psychologists co
  5. Red or Yellow. Both plug into the exiting roads at the correct point so that traffic will flow easily. Those that plug into the mini bridgefoot bypass are rather pointless.
  6. I must admit the -0.75% rate came as a bit of a surprise for all. Most were banking on a 1% or 1.5% amended rate. It appears the reliance on gilts which in the past were good strong performers is at the heart of this. As Truss said, she was bound by law to make this calculation. I suspect this will change and change very quickly. Suggestions of a graded discount rate based on period its supposed to last has been suggested to reflect the differences in short term and long term investments. Im sure most insurers are already looking at submitting alternative procedures. I don't think thi
  7. From someone who practices in this area. let me clarify a few points. These are all my own personal views : LASPO 2013 reduced legal costs in car accidents by 40%. Did premiums go down? No. The ABI admitted at a recent parliamentary committee that the insurance industry had saved hundreds of millions from this change. The discount rate has been at 2.5% since 2001 since which returns in long term investments were much less. Did premiums go down to reflect the windfall to the insurers? No. BTW if a person receiving a future loss award runs out of the money provided under the award for th
  8. Thanks Gary but that to me doesn't look like a promise to cut them but merely a promise to review the same with a view to cut them. A world of difference between the two. The review it seems has found that its unsupportable due to intervention from other authorities. In which case the hullabaloo about promises and the MP standing down etc is somewhat misplaced. Again if there is a cast iron promise / guarantee then I'd like to see it and if so then I share some of the views about it now being withdrawn. if it doesn't exist, then perhaps we should cast the net wider as to where fault lies b
  9. I've been trying to find the promise that it will be free to Warrington. Osbourne appears to say he will look into it but not actually confirm it from my research. If anyone can find the quote confirming categorically that he promised it then let me know. I don't count Twitter BTW from a personal account and indeed I would expect no one with a mind to either. That said since day one its been known that in the event of tolls traffic will increase through Warrington. I think 15%+ was rumoured and the plans appear to have been based on hoping that the tolls will be free to Warrington. However
  10. Think the line closed in 1962 to passenger traffic and then deemed unsafe in 1985 so the rest was shut. (Wikipedia)
  11. I understand its barely staying up and would costs a fortune to renovate or remove. Perhaps use it as a railway....nah too radical that.
  12. There was no stampede, rush or sudden build up. I recall it vividly. As per most terraces, pressure built and people tried to squeeze in but here there was a combination of effects. The central tunnel had a slope down towards the pens. This slope exceeded recommendations for such sports grounds. It was dark and narrow and once in there you couldn't turn round as others come in behind you. You had nowhere to go. As the police wrongly thought, the fans "would find their own level". It was a cumulative effect. A few enter and cant get in, some more enter and cant get in and gravity kicks in w
  13. Cant believe I'm reading some of this. My previous comment was a summary. I left out loads which the inquest didn't. Lets kill some things for starters, - In 1988 the semi had a cordon prior to the turnstiles. That would have provided a filter and broken up the approach to the turnstiles. None such cordon in 1989 - In 1988 the police closed the tunnel gates when it was full. Didn't in 1989. - People were drinking but the numerous (hundreds) of statements taken decided it wasn't a factor i.e. it had no effect on the cause. - The police opened gate C three times with no thought as
  14. I was there that day as was my brother. It was a complete mess up from minute one. I was allowed with my friend decked head to toe in Liverpool stuff to walk all the way up to the wrong terrace acting on instructions previously given. The turnstiles were too narrow, then when you got through them you could go where you wanted. A nice gap in an adjacent wall was left open despite having a gate on it. I was 17, hadn't been there before and naturally gravitated down the tunnel as I could see the goal there. Gates on that tunnel were not used, signs didn't direct you elsewhere and no one was o
  15. Read up on this process since I heard about it. Rule K arbitration can take sometime. For example the Hull City "Tigers" issue started as a Rule K arbitration in July 2014 and wasn't heard Feb 2015. The process involves it seems submitting a case, the respondent replying and the applicant responding to the replies. An arbitrator then needs to be agreed and skeleton arguments are served before the hearing. The matter is then reserved for the outcome. Id guess just setting it up and getting the documents going will be about 4-6 weeks minimum. Cant see this being sorted before the end of the
