Nazis if they are still alive and discovered yes they should be exposed and brought to trial to answer for the crimes after all why should they live comforable lives with no worries when they denyed the victims of their crimes of a long happy life, and don't forget the lots of victims were children and young baby's,like the ones you have , that have been denyed reaching 70 years of age and having grandchildren to enjoy.by these monsters.

Separate Beds?

Not unless one of you snores, in which case separate rooms might be better.

Having heard the young lady who brought this up, it was separate rooms that she had in mind, so that she could have her own space, free of his "mess", and because he was hot and had the windows open while she was cold and needed warmth (where have I heard that one before?).

Didn't see it as a damper on their sex life, far from it, and some people seemed to agree.

To deny the lady bus driver consideration purely on the basis of a calculation of a controversial scale based on height and weight seems unfair, but she might have been wise to wait for the result of her recent medical for her existing licence (which she hasn't had yet).

Bail Hostels!


This was on Ch4 News last night .. that nice Mr Snow chap ripped the Justice Minister apart.

The whole concept of a justice system with custodial sentencing, is to protect the public.

So who is going into these hostels ( ordinary houses in ordinary streets where the public live)

1. People on bail waiting for trial.- yep
2. People on remand waiting for trial .. yep. aren't they put on remand because they may run away or because they're dangerous?
3. People waiting for sentencing. yep. I.E. Convicted criminals - living next door - that makes me feel really safe.

Don't worry we've consulted the local authorities..

1. Errr we checked , no you didn't and
2. So what even if you did - what does that actually do for the general public- so what if the town hall knows you live next to a bunch of criminals - it doesn't do you any good if you don't know.

Protection of the public seems to be the last thing on official minds these days.

Laughing

How "unfortunate" that this should crop up just in time for the local elections!

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/uknews/1917356/Councils%27-fury-over-%27secret%27-150-bail-hostels.html

Actually it's nothing new, although the wheeze of putting it out to private contract may be. It's a topic which has been simmering for years and gets a kickstart every now and then - Panorama did a programme in January 2007.

Are you on the ClearSprings map? - http://www.channel4.com/news/articles/society/law_order/is+there+a+bail+hostel+near+you/2110552

Bail Hostels - Should these be built in residential areas?

No.. I don't think people should have to put up with the risk or the hassle, rightly or wrongly. Listening to some of the callers, they've had break ins, their vans broken into, noisy drinking sessions? no it shouldn't happen to decent folk but I accept I may not be so tolerant as some.

Nazi War Criminals - Should we still be hunting WW2 Nazis?

Blimey this subject is a tough one listening to both sides.. I think they should be brought to justice, even if it's just to publicly shame them. It isn't right for them to get away with it, no matter how old they are.
I wasn't so convinced by the argument that ordinary or low ranking soldiers/police should be treated the same as the hierarchy for war crimes. Surely some must have been scared to death of disobeying the Nazi leaders and carried out the orders in fear of their own life?


Separate Beds

Laughing There's something to be said for separate beds, after all sleep is important to most so if your partner keeps you awake for whatever reason, it makes sense to sleep separately now and then.
I confess to sleeping much more soundly when Mrs. SFF is away for the weekend, me and my dogs can all snore as loudly as we want and watch TV in bed till as late as we want to!.
