I email these stories to my young daughters......

just to show that everything on the internet isn't what it says it is.

And in reply to a previous poster. You cannot/should not supervise all children's use of the internet. You need to educate youngsters as to the sort of assholes which hang around chatrooms 'getting down with the kids'

And before everybody starts calling me a bad parent and we deserve everything we get. It is estimated 50 Million people are driving PC's full of scam ware/phishing ware. Should we supervise all their web access no. They need to be educated to know what is right and what is wrong.

Humming singing and having that damn song running round and round in my head

I would like to be honest and admit to singing in the shower this morning and consequently huming the song before I got into my car and now having arrived at work and am unable to sing so i just have the song rolling round and round in my head.

Who can I send my cheque to for this...

i was singing 'Oliver! Oliver! Never before has a boy asked for more. Oliver!, Oliver'!.

I believe its is owned by SongBMG. Should I send the money for my momertary lapse directly to BMG, directly to the artist (Harry Secombe) or directly to PRS.

Everybody that has placed a comment has a different view of how they justify their on-line habits and viewing behaviours. A lot of which is quite articulate and well though out.

except the commenter's that are throwing words about like thief's and crooks and freetards. Isn't it an indictment on our society that one section of the of our little oasis here (el reg) will brand people that don't agree and conform to their idea's with the dregs of society.

In my mind a thief is the guy that kicks some granny to death and steals her pension. A crook is the money lender that charges 5000% interest on their £100 loan which they needed to pay the rent.

But then again this seems to be the way our society is going. When hoods that mug and beat up granny's are given a ASBO (which means nothing to them or anybody else) and sent on their way. Normal law abiding people and criminalised for putting rubbish in the wrong bin there is something seriously wrong.

When the Attorney General is allowed to break her own laws and only has to apologise to be let off and the Home Secretary commits fraud and only has to apologise and not pay the money back.

Vote for change and don't just look at the top two think outside the box and how much better society should be.

@ Paul Chapman End See-Saw Politics

I'm not Voting for Tory because my Family need our Tax Credits to continue working to support my family and to contribute towards society.

I don't see why we should be punished because my wife enjoys her job and likes putting something back into the community in which we live. She doesn't get paid much but it will be enough to push us over the 50k limit for losing all our subsidies. Subsidies which go on Childcare.

And where is that money going to go. to pay Bank Bonus AND/OR To try and get the great unwashed and unemployable off their arse to get a job to help drag this country out of the mess the Banks have put us in.

I want a new way and as long as voters only consider 2 parties then see-saw politics will continue and nothing will change.

I'd Vote for this comment! ....

By Chris Redpath Posted Wednesday 7th October 2009 09:11 GMT

I'm all for increased road safety, but cameras have a reputation for being located in prime cash generating spots. I believe this is largely because of the lack of published effectiveness data - if they really are so great then show us all the data and we will maybe start to support them.

Publishing data about effectiveness and encouraging the most effective strategies for road safety sounds eminently sensible, so I'm skeptical that it'll ever happen but let's see.

I support driver education and traffic police personally, you only have to drive ten miles to see numerous examples of bad driving which cameras cannot prevent. Perhaps if drivers thought that a policeman may stop them for a little chat, they might take more care when driving a 2 ton lump of metal through busy streets.

I'm not a saint in the car, but I do try to drive responsibly. A policeman has the opportunity to apply some judgement in any action to be taken, at least in theory this should allow them to encourage good driving habits rather than blind avoidance of cameras.

Thumb Up

Do you believe?

A Government which is going to think before they legislate.

We are doing this for the good of Society. The money doesn't matter to us. We want what is best for Us as a Society.

Next thing they will announce tougher laws on hoodies and more prisons for scum.

And then once they get in they will announce a review which will last 4 years and then conveniently forget all their promises.

I wish I could believe but I don't. But maybe I'll be surprised. But if you don't Vote you can't complain. So get out and Vote for somebody/anybody.

Wales adopts mobile average speed cameras

Hmmmmm interesting

are the Police going to wave and tell you to smile for the camera...

or could they mean more traffic cops to catch some of the idiots driving on the roads.

You know who you are! I doubt it

maybe more cops searching you as a potential terrorist. Or maybe on-the-spot fines for laughing too much when you are driving. Driving with a smile on your face.

Nothing for our advantage I'm sure

Man on trial over £600k NatWest phishing scam


Amazing - The Bank actually caught somebody stealing....

Suprising to say the least. I though they just blamed customers for being stupid and left them with the bill.

Is this the new caring sharing Banks Ole Gordo BrOOn keeps telling us about.

Maybe I'm dumb but isn't electronic fraud easy to track. The money left account 123 and went to account 234 then off to account 345 then off to account 456.

Fooled you! Of course its not that easy because the banks don't know where their own money is half the time. And if they do know where it is they aint telling. They wouldn't want to upsert their big tax avoiding customers now would they.

Nation's parents prepare to be vetted


@ By Shakje - But really, really, is it going to turn into an apocalypse of parents being arrested

The potential danger is of course is the police stopping people in the street with more than one child and asking can I inspect your papers please. You have 3 children there, are they yours, could I inspect your barcode please.

Excuse me sir. Your car was spotted (by a modified speed camera) with more than 1 child in the back.

Are you vetted to carry other peoples children

If the law exists then the police will use it.

Then it will be accept a caution or visit court to argue about stupid laws.

What would you choose?

I once knew somebody that was prosecuted for 'Not locking their car in a public place' The Police will use every law they have. Stupid or not!

Can I have an icon for we are all DOOMED!


Ofsted - As much help as a chocolate teapot

After having a falling out with our registered childminder we contacted Ofsted to make a complaint but were told......

We don't get involved with the Business aspect of your arrangements. We only get involved where there is a child safety issue. So as long as they don't hurt the child they can screw you for as much money as they can, and will.

So they don't care what monies are being handed over or extorted by childminders as long as the law is being upheld.

No moral obligation to the arrangement which they are supposed to oversee. You are told always use an Ofsted approved childminder for your own protection. It should say always use a ofsted approved childminder because they have been vetted!

No protection of parents implied

Hence the comment: Ofsted - As much help as a chocolate teapot

North Wales Police says the law is what they say it is


I read the Liberity website last night

thanks to the commenter that posted the link on here somewhere: Here it is again: http://www.yourrights.org.uk/ maybe somebody else will read it.

Clear concise explanations of what the Police are allowed and not allowed to do.

I'm sure it must piss the Police off no end people knowing their rights but it is important because a minority of the Police can abuse their powers. 'You look very tall sir'

I do hate speed traps but the argument with the Police is developing into a them and us situation. This isn't how it should be. We pay their wages and our politicians. They should do what WE tell them within the confines of the Law WE set.

And I want a Policeman/women walking up my street occasionally to try and catch the toe-rags that keep breaking into cars and not just a bloody crime number.

Vote for a change. Don't just blindly Vote for who you Voted for last time. Consider their promises and who is likely to deliver on their promises and Vote for them.

I wonder how long it will be before this new systems is good enough to be able to work out your mileage, MPH, which roads you used and how much Road Tax we can charge you for driving at stupid times:

like the time you start work,

or the time the kids need to be at school

Or the time you finish work

or the time you pick up the kids from school

Just another way to screw people with jobs and responsibilities out even more of their hard earned money. Of course by the time it comes in we will have all lost our jobs and won't have to worry about it.

DOH!!! Sorry its not for that is its to improve road safety. Ahh I see. Just like the extortionate rates charged at Airports is to combat terrorists.The fact that we make loads of money out of it is just a pleasent side effect.

Maybe the Yoof do give a shit about what is going around them.

I bet Baroness Scotland wished she had checked somebodies ID Card...... or should she have checked her empoyee's CRB... or ensured her employee's were Vetted!........or ensure her empoyee's DNA whas been retained....or her employee against the Travel Database.... or spending database or maybe even her Nectar card.
