    You probably couldn't get a warrant on that alone, its not considered accurate enough, unless it was a house in the middle of nowhere and it couldn't be anywhere else. There would need to be some other corroborating evidence. 

    If the app is not accurate enough for a warrent, then it really is not accruate enough to search without one and this is a stupid potential new law.

    How much is it really an issue about getting a search warrent when something like find my phone app clearly shows the stolen phone in someones house?


    I get you have to get one, but how long does that actually take?



    On one hand It seems insane that the police can't search the house i because getting the warrent just I dunno takes too much time or effort.  Surley that bit should be fixed instead of giving powers to search without a warrent.  especially given the lack of trust in the police right now.  Am I missing something?

    Ah I kept meaning to add something to this image but never got around to it. Oh well Halloween is over now. 
    the end result is super cool, kudos to everybody! :cheers: My favorite is the rip paid job and the skinny jeans with wings and halo. No worries, nothing ever really dies, there’ll always be a place for the ghost of skinny jeans in my wardrobe. :lol: 

    feel free to keep adding if you can find space.    that ghost of skinny jeans is being dragged down to hell


  4. I have booked a house sleeps 8,  (All beds can be set as singles or Doubles)  4 rooms.  from the 7th - 13th  so one day each side.


    Its about a 30 min googlemaps walk but there are also a few busses.  with 8 people sharing it will come to £328.02 per person (about £54 per night)

    I have free councilation until July, so before I accept anyone to share, I will wait to see what the con hotel room rates are.

    I have read Good Omens a few times, but the translation into Slovene, which is very good.

    Now I started reading a rare Slovene fantasy book, I am not yet far enough into it to really form an opinion. The prologue and the first few chapters are really confusing, but now some information have started to show.

    But I also have a whole pile of students' tests to read through, and in the coming week, I will have even more of those, so I don't know how much motivation I will have to left to read anything.

    I hope that reading student papers is as entertaining as reading good omens.  although I doubt this very much, especially if this also results in pass grades which I also hope your students get.


    basically I have unrealistic hopes for you.

    I haven't lived with a partner before, but I am glad the work reduces once you do. ;)

    In other news, three work days and then I have a week off, yay.

    Also, there is a quiz in the local bookshop on Friday and the topic is fantasy/sci-fi literature and films. I really want to go, but sadly I don't have a team to go with. :(

    Oh my sweet summer child.  Work only reduces when living with a female partner.


    Although work is shared, its mostly not equal and often work increases in other ways desite not doing a few of the jobs.



    although if I am honest my work dramatically decreased when Hubby retired and bacame a house wife  (he now does 90% of the work  but this is a special case) I have hopes that maybe things will be equally shared once I retire.

    And it could be both! 

    Not to worry though, the mighty Tories may have a new leader in a few years! :stillsick:


    Well for that he would have to 1) join the Conservative party.  2) get himself selected to run as an MP for them,  3) win local election and become an MP  (something he has failed to do many times so far)   and then 4) get the Tory MP's to elect him as leader unopposed or be in the final 2 then get the wider party members to vote for him.


    I do not think we have to worry about him actually being Tory leader.  he just likes to be in the news.

    Who on earth thinks the Conservatives are reliable? Even if you agree with their views, there are multiple promises they have just failed to live up to. HS2, '£350 Million for the NHS', etc...

    there is a guy I work with who belives we are spending that £350 million extra on the NHS right now, and a lot of it went into payrises of doctors and Nurses so really they are just being greedy when they go on strike.  We really should be thanking Borris.


    Yes he is 100% serrious.

  8. I hate to say it but on a lot of levels hearing about Isralies and Palatinians killing each other is a bit like hearing about another shcool shooting in the US.  Kindof expeted and not really news.

    the degree though is news.  Involving many citizens of other nations makes it more newsworthy to the rest of the world.


    unfortuanlty any action Israil takes will either be seen as weak and thus supr Hamas on,  or other the top and drive more people into supporting Hamas and create the next generation to continue the fight.  I don't see a way out of this without massive idioloy change on both sides actually wanting peace.

    Generally they have jobs and pay taxes, so that's fine. If only our government was making these investments!

    I think at the moment they mostly don't have jobs but thats cos they are waiting for their claims for asylem to be processed and are not allowed to have jobs.  Thus by many people it is seen as the imigants are costing the tax payer a lot of money.


    The answer to this is not less migration,  but dealing with the back log.  maybe even have a processing center in france so many don't need to come here first?  ya know safe a legal routes.

    maybe give them a temperary permit to work while their claim is being processed?

    What I don’t understand is why Labour haven’t come out and said we’re going to keep HS2 if we win. It seems like a big obvious move to show that they aren’t just Tory lite, and would be popular in the Northern seats they need to win back.

    what happens if the government sell off the land they bought for this in the mean time?  (probably cheaply to donor house builders)
