Not in the public interest – So says CPS


There is something seriously wrong, with so called justice in this country.

Just one of the comments regarding this article in the Mail.

A seventeen year old thug beats up a fifteen year using his victims own crutches and the CPS have stated that prosecuting the thug is not in the public interest.

How can this be ?

We the public want these thugs removed from the streets.

We the public want to be able to walk the streets without the risk of un-provoked attack.

We the public want our police to have the support of the CPS, to not feel that their efforts are to no avail.

We the public want our justice system to start clamping down on the thugs that plague our streets.

And most of all, we the public, want justice for the victims of crime.

15 year old Angus Whittall needed 12 stitches for a gash in his mouth and suffered severe bruising to his head and neck.

The thug that caused these injuries just gets a wrist slap, a “final warning”. The implication there is that he has done this before. He is still out on the streets and able to do this again.

The law is pathetic.

The CPS has too often let the public down, has let the police down and most of all they have let down Angus Whittall and his family.

Mike Harding – Fired on the phone after 15 years with the BBC


‘I’d like to thank Mike Harding, who has spent 15 years at the top of his game, delighting fans with his expertise and rooting out the very best folk music. On his watch, folk has enjoyed a huge surge in popularity and Mike has been key in supporting the genre and introducing Radio 2 listeners to a broad range of new artists.

So says Bob Shennan, controller of Radio 2, who has sacked Mike Harding.

This is the corporation doing what they do best, cocking things up.

And for why ?

To make room for former Radio 1 breakfast show host Mark Radcliffe. Are they going to have him host a folk show, I don’t think so. So not only is this a slap in the face for Mike Harding but it is a catastrophe for the British folk fans. The loss of a national weekly folk show will be hard for the BBC to recover from.

This decision makes absolutely no sense.

Grammar Lesson


My thanks to my sister, Chris, for brightening my day by sending me this in an email.

Sex And Good Grammar

On his 74th birthday, a man got a gift certificate from his wife.

The certificate paid for a visit to a medicine man living on a nearby reservation who was rumored to have a wonderful cure for erectile dysfunction.

After being persuaded, he drove to the reservation, handed his ticket to the medicine man, and wondered what he was in
for.

The old man handed a potion to him, and with a grip on his
shoulder, warned,

This is a powerful medicine. You take only a teaspoonful, and then say ‘1-2-3.’
When you do, you will become more manly than you have ever been in your life, and you can perform as long as you want.

The man was encouraged. As he walked away, he turned and asked,

How do I stop the medicine from working?

Your partner must say ‘1-2-3-4,'” he responded, “but when she does, the medicine will not work again until the next full moon.

He was very eager to see if it worked so he went home, showered, shaved,took a spoonful of the medicine, and then invited his wife to join him in the bedroom.

When she came in, he took off his clothes and said,

1-2-3!

Immediately, he was the manliest of men.

His wife was excited and began throwing off her clothes, and then she asked,

What was the > 1-2-3 for?

And that, boys and girls, is why we should never end our sentences with a preposition, because we could end up with a dangling participle.
