Re: is she guilty of murder? will she return to Italy?

Having read a very good book on the case I'd say she's guilty and so is her ex-boyfriend.

Re: Is the site broken ?

falkor, I'm perfectly happy with the site. Of course more activity would be good but that's down to the various members to post and reply to stuff. As for facebook, I've never bothered with it as I've never grasped what it can offer me that other methods of communication with family & friends alread...

Re: Thames Valley Recruitment, September intake

Unless TVP are different to where I work, there is no strength test or even a fitness test. I had my sight checked for colour blindness, hearing tested, lung capacity (in case I decide whilst wearing boots, a 10 kilo stab vest and other kit to run uphill after a 16 year old in trackies and trainers!...

Re: Thames Valley Recruitment, September intake

falkor, The animated movie was pre-dated in 1969 by a book parodying Lord of the Rings titled Bored of the rings and includes an alternative version of the "nine rings" poem/mantra etc : The Power almighty rests in this Lone Ring. The Power, alrighty, for doing your Own Thing. If broken or busted, i...

No, I'm not on Facebook and don't intend joining it - I see no benefits for me in doing so.

Re: Staffordshire Police

gibbsw42, You won't get much more uniform or kit as a PCSO!! I'm pleased to hear that at least one force is investing in PCSO's and thus NPT. Here in West Yorks we're awaiting the next financial year to see what happens regarding council funding. We already know that the division has to lose 35 cops...

Re: Staffordshire Police

gibbsw42, Hello to you. When you say you were referred to Occupational Health, was that for something other than the standard health/fitness check? Has Staffs Personnel/Human Resources given a reason for the delay? It's unlikely that anyone here can answer this particular question. If you already wo...

Re: Is the site broken ?

Roadie, I'm at a loss to explain the recent drop in activity. The future of us PCSO's was discussed a couple of months ago on this thread : http://pcsos-national.co.uk/pcso/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=18861 "Could this be the end of the PCSO ??" We all know our forces are facing further cuts but the trouble...

Roadie,

It's been like Monty Python's famous parrot for some time now. I lasted posted a few weeks ago but there's been hardly any activity for some time.

Re: Election TV debate: our Leaders clash

I will be voting but I have to say I have significantly less than 100% confidence in any candidate or party. It feels more a case of choosing the lesser of a number of evils rather than an obvious choice.

Re: Two-thirds of jailed drug offenders has string of previous

There are many things wrong with our justice system. The amount of time actually served : we've just seen Gary Glitter/Paul Gadd sentenced to 16 years yet he'll be eligible for parole after 9, only just more than half the sentence. Once convicted, you serve what you're given. No time off for good be...

Re: Joint Enterprise? is it justice? should it be cancelled?

The use of "joint enterprise" may be beneficial in some cases, such as the Stephen Lawrence murder, but there are dangers - Derek Bentley springs to mind. It should be used with the utmost caution and there'll be many instances where things aren't as clear cut as Big Brother suggests.
