Grand Theft Auto V: Violent, sweary and amazingly ambitious


Re: Xbox/PS question for the room

1. No they shouldn't. Feel free to turn it off if you so desire. Some people struggle to enjoy games without this feature. Play it the way you want, not how someone else tells you to play it.

2. Correct. But this is a game rather than a "firing a gun simulator".

3. Yes they should (those who handle firearms which is a very low number here in the good ol' UK) but no it won't. Should "teaching people that jumping from the bonnet of a car onto a speeding boat" be shown to need correct training to get the desired result, and failure to obey has consequences, in an effort to carry that over into the real world? And see 2 above.

4. It is a game. I realise this is the same as point 2 but feel it is so important it needs mentioning again.

Re: Child Protection

And I guess my previous post got three down votes for the use of the word 'football'? :-P


Child Protection

When I attended the child protection session of the Level 1 Football Coaching course, the question about child photographs obviously came up. One of the main reasons photos of children are not published, particularly with accompanying names, is to protect children who have been removed from abusive families and relocated to safer places.

Vatican subtly shifts its position on The Blues Brothers


Re: So hate me why don't you

OK, as you wish.

I own Blues Brothers 2000 as it is in a double pack with the original. My love of the original, however, has prevented me from ever watching the sequel.

And remember, you can't lie to a nun.

Premier League loses footie decoder case


Down side...

The down side of this ruling is the new found legality of allowing matches to be shown at 3pm on a Saturday afternoon. Currently no live matches may be shown at that time so as to not discourage football fans from attending lower league football by giving them the opportunity to watch 'better' football. This will no longer be the case.
