    What happened to cummings/goebbels when he was 'dobbed in'?

    Oh that's right, nothing!

    A kid who had a party got a £10k fine...

    The law in the UK is joke...

    But then borisconi has boasted he will break the law...

    So I no longer feel any obligation to follow whichever laws that I disagree with!

    I just could not be bothered with calling the police, they are 15 minutes away by fast car now that all the local stations have been closed.
    By then the group would likely have gone.

    How does it work in the supermarket or the pub?

    So, in your twisted view, two wrongs DO make a right! Why am I not surprised about that? :rolleyes:

    One broke the law and was stupid enough to test the system despite being given plenty of chances to comply. The other no matter how much people hate him, did not.

    look in to the details of that 10k fine.

    on the subject of speeding. I don’t need my speedo to choose a safe speed. Choosing a safe speed that allows you to stop safely in the distance you can see is clear is really all that matters.

    Cummings did break the law though, even though it was a minor breach, at least that's what a professor of law thinks:

    I agree there is not much equivalence, although Cummings should be held to the conduct befitting a special advisor, a bit different from some oik


    t the relevant time, Regulation 6(1) of the Health Protection (Coronavirus, Restrictions)(England) Regulations 2020 placed a strong restriction on movement: ‘During the emergency period, no person may leave the place where they are living without reasonable excuse’. Cummings’ excuse for the initial trip to Durham was that he was concerned to relocate to a place where childcare would be available, in the event that he and his wife were both simultaneously ill with symptoms of Covid-19. There is no explicit exception to this effect in the list contained in Reg 6(2), but this is not an exhaustive list of what may be legally ‘reasonable’ excuses. The family’s 260 mile trip to Durham is, however, difficult to square with the core, overarching government instruction in place at the time – ‘Stay at Home’ – and had the potential to carry the virus from one end of England to the other. If what is legally reasonable is interpreted against the backdrop of this guidance, it seems arguable the trip to Durham would fall comfortably outside the category of available excuses

    I'm sure we had some fellow who illegally closed down Parliament under false pretences to prevent it doing its job.

    Remind me, who was that?

    Nope, it was to show your rank hypocrisy. Where was all this care for others when Austerity and cuts to healthcare caused 120k excess deaths? Championing cuts and defending the Government.

    Now you want to project that you are looking out for others. :ROFLMAO:

    thank you for confirming I was right.....faux outrage

    community speed awareness volunteers would have made zero difference in that case.


    I have some that regularly appear, they spend their time clocking people who go a few miles over the limit, but they do FA to clean the speed limit signs or cut back the hedge so you cant see them. Its a stretch of road that swaps between 40mph and 30.....guess what they stand just where it goes lower to catch people. Makes FA difference to road safety.

    Given your distrust of central government I would have thought you would be glad that some community minded people were prepared to protect the community.

    thats the point that was being made: you arent bothered by those.

    you should calm down a bit or you will be overloading the system with a grumbling ulcer from all that whining acid :ROFLMAO:
