In some communities ''the majority of informants are everyday members of the public, like old ladies on council estates.''

In others they are traitors to their families and those very same communities and deserve everything they get.

Like a password? If you get picked up by the police and do not tell them what the keys that you have forgotten about are for, is it an offence?

Online poker

I have been playing poker with humans for twenty years, a couple of years ago I played online for two months or so, just to try it.

Apart from the fact that you really need to look into the eyes of your opponents there was something that just didn't feel right about the way a lot of games turned out, there was just too much scope for fraud, I used to imagine an admin sitting in front of a monitor turning a dial like an old fashioned volume knob tweaking the housebots % depending on who was playing and the size of the pots, extracting as much as possible without anyone noticing.

So I stopped playing.

It's more akin to putting money in a 'one armed bandit' than poker.

Distressed cock whipped out of wheelie bin

I could build that for a tenner out of my spares box, they seem to forget the couple of hours to put it all together and the rest of the day searching for drivers to make it all work, yeah right add a days pay to that. anyway wait a month or two and it'll be 500 quid.

Yes and why have a referendum on the issue we didn't need one re. the EU. Clegg should demand it as his price.

Pentagon hacker McKinnon earns extradition delay

Thumb Down

@ Justin Smith

Do your research before you make claims like that, yes the US say they have an extradition treaty with the UK, the key word is "roughly" it is very one sided.

Blunkett signed away a swathe of our rights in June 2003.

"Under the new treaty, the allegations of the US government will be enough to secure the extradition of people from the UK. However, if the UK wants to extradite someone from the US, evidence to the standard of a "reasonable" demonstration of guilt will still be required." quote Ben Hayes of Statewatch.

There any many other unfavourable terms (to the UK citizen) in this 'treaty' http://www.statewatch.org/news/2003/jul/25ukus.htm

Extradite a suspect to a country that does not respect decisions made by the International Court of Justice, a country that refuses to allow members of it's armed forces to be tried in International courts for serious war crimes, a country that imprisons suspects in military prisons without trial, a country that openly condones and pratices torture. Bollix.

Mc Kinnon should fight this all the way, he cannot possibly get a fair unbiased trial in the US.

@Jose Ramirez

If the MAJORITY of people in your country voted to kill anyone with the name Ramirez, that would be a democratic decision wouldn't it.

Doesn't make it right though. Twat.

How many staff has HMRC caught snooping on records?

May as well get my coat now maybe I will take a few other coats as well no no too risky oh f.... it.

Brown opts for morality over science on 'lethal skunk'

Dead Vulture

Time for a change

How can someone smart enough to attain the level of Prime Minister make such stupid statements. As a one time Labour voter I begrudge having ever voted for them, never again. We have lost more personal freedoms and civil liberties under this government than any other in living memory, there is a wave of dissatisfaction sweeping through the country, most thinking people are sick of being lied to, cheated, spied on,,,, are you listening Mr. Brown, there are hundreds of thousands of people out there like me. There I've had my rant.

On a lighter note, I have just recovered from an operation for cancer followed by three months of chemotherapy, out of the sackfulls of drugs I was given to combat the awful side affects of chemo. nothing worked better than a nice bit of skunk!

We badly need a revolution.

Smoke screen

Seems to me Gordon Brown needs something to appease the baying masses and sweep under the table important issues like recent Data loses, Phorm, BT pimping our data, massive loss of civil liberties since Labour came to power.

As Anonymous said time to get the pitchforks out, anyway I'm of for a smoke.
