    Honesty & Integrity

    Well, we've started over with a clean slate Steve, and everyone (well, at least most people) deserve a second chance.
  2. As this isn't really about policing, I'll move it to "Real World"

    BNP "Forget" to remember.

    Just goes to show the level of "intelligence" that we're dealing with when it comes to the BNP. Source: Independent.

    Honesty & Integrity

    They will include all of the posts that were not being critical (directly or indirectly) of the new forum, or the people that choose to use it. It has been agreed that the two forums will leave each other alone in that way, and will fail or prosper (hopefully the latter) on their own merits.

    Honesty & Integrity

    Because we have reached an agreement with the other forum. We removed our thread, and they'll remove theirs. Life is too short for bad blood and it's time to move on. When I have a moment tomorrow, I'll pick out the important posts and move them to a separate thread so that they aren't removed from view.

    New law re displaying a vehicle tax disc

    Assuming that you mean April 2015 (and not 14). Yes, you can remove it. The offence of 'failing to display' has been removed from statute.
  7. It can get worse than that I'm afraid. You get your compliant stop ticket, and then a person that you're trying to stop, doesn't. You don't half look like a right fool when you've got to let them go because you can't initiate a pursuit. Whilst I understand the policy, it doesn't help as you're watching the tail lights disappear.
  8. Pretty much exactly the same as AnthonyB for Avon & Somerset when I did my course. Very little to it bar common sense really.

    The Forum General Chat Thread

    Welcome back We're good here thanks. Yourself? Long time no see/speak/type. Obviously, and as you've noticed things have changed around here, but we're hoping that we can make this work, even if it is hard work. The main thing for us is saving the forum (even from itself) so we're giving it a go. Whether or not we succeed remains to be seen of course.

    A good & fair point. I'd not edited my sig, I shall do so now.

    Sorry, I'd hit the wrong button and deleted my own post :D

    The Forum General Chat Thread

    I'd wager, less of a god and more of the fool who stuck his head over the parapet
  13. Obligation, maybe not. But I'd put money on the fact that they'll still respond regardless. It's like it's in the DNA, much like police officers and ambulance staff. I remember well the last ambulance strike, going back quite a few years. I came across a major RTA (as it was then) in the middle of the night on the A40 just outside St Clears in Wales. Several ambulances (all crewed by striking ambulance staff) turned up. It's just what they do.

    At the end of the runway....

    Did anyone happen to notice the Daily Maul Online (yes, I know, and I'm sorry) on 26th Oct. But there are some absolutely great shots of a Tornado at low level. Clicky

    Now, here's someone with far too much time and money on their hands.... The Addams Family AC/DC "Hells Bells" Lady GaGa "Pokerface" And my personal favourite... Queen "Bohemian Rhapsody"
