  1. Loads of empty shelves in the Morrisons/Asda/Tesco shops in Malvern/Worcester/Bromsgrove over the past couple of weeks.
  2. Yes, very worrying stuff. They'll be wheeling out David Blunkett and Vernon Coaker next to tell us how we should have had ID cards all along.
  3. Dieter Brummer, 45 - ex Home and Away actor.
  4. That might be the first person ever to go from one of my lists - apart from Bruce Forsyth, perhaps (though I may have dropped him for 2017).
  5. Can the Attorney General ask for a sentence to be reviewed if she thinks it's too high? Will the current government (seek to) introduce a law to reduce the criminal penalty for (murder or) manslaughter if committed in similar circumstances by police officers in the future?
  6. Obon? Only one letter away from lob on, which is probably what'Nick' for when listening to that song.
  7. It is utterly superb. Peter Vaughan was brilliant in it. Edit: Strong, McKee, Craig, Ecclestone, &c. obviously terrific.
  8. It is much, much deeper than that.
  9. Except, he isn't. For all the 'Barnard Castle' shit, he has been much more important than 'second rate numpty'.
  10. Absolutely. Johnson and him, both. Peas. Pod.
  11. The issue with Cummings saying it, is that he, himself, always appears to be very happy with chaos as it brings about opportunities for him, too. For Johnson it may be adoration and adulation; for Cummings it may be other things (and there might be an argument - a very sketchy one - that it's just/mainly for improvement [of systems, processes, &c.]). Either way, neither of them could give two shits about any suffering that emanates from that chaos (unless they are the ones to suffer).
  12. And was the presenter of Robot Wars - post Clarkson.
  13. It may be but you're right it's a comment on the situation plod face and not about the point I was making.
  14. I'm not insistent that 'it's totally unreasonable that...' - what I'm saying is that giving people a get out that they might feel frightened because the first two acts of force have failed to elicit the desired effect isn't a very good line to take. Edit: The stuff you were saying about them being angry seems quite obviously true. How much of that might be because they were genuinely frightened or scared in the first instance and that escalated to being really and reasonably scared for their safety and the safety of others and spilt in to anger and frustration at the ineffectiveness of the weapon in its first two deployments or that they were pissed off that someone was being loud and aggressive towards their boyfriend/girlfriend late at night one can only guess.
