    Vegan in the family

    I think the point others are making is more about trying where possible to be demonstrably reasonable in dealing with others, as opposed to just being ranty, annoying, militant mirror images of those who oppose us. Nothing "pc gawn maayyyyd" about that, surely? Just common decency.

    Duck shooting Bedfordshire

    Not quite North Beds but there is a club (maybe Spalding wildfowlers) who have shooting at Earith.

    Sounds like your approach is more likely to cause ill feeling than his. Why not just extend a friendly hand and accommodate him if only to try to get off to a good start? You may end up finding him ok rather than making assumptions and causing pointless drama.

    Not "off topic"

    I'm thinking radioactive green if some of the other stuff I have uncovered is anything to go by.

    Not "off topic"

    Funnily enough one of my things to do fairly soon is to remove a hardboard sheet from one side of one of our old doors. Should be fun to see what colour it is underneath.

    I'd always wanted to go and get him to make a splitting axe head for me - he made excellent tools. Tomkins - Yes, that was Grandad. I'll PM you.

    That's a shame. I'm sure I heard somewhere that he was one of the last true working village blacksmiths. I pretty much grew up in that village, my Grandfather was the last tenant farmer at Town Farm. Sorry for the slight derail by the way.

    Would that be Bob P by any chance?

    Would you take the shot?

    Thanks for that. Don't worry, if we think it needs to be closed we will close it.

    RIP Allan Clark/Tiercel

    That's a real shame. Condolences to his family.

    You want us to go around pre-emptively shutting threads in case they turn into an argument? That's brilliant. I'm sure everyone would love that.

    Upskirting bill

    Amending law like this is routine day to day business for government. The only reason it has been in the headlines is because it's a change to sex offender law and therefore newsworthy and because everyone expected it to be waved through and it wasn't, based on a single objection.

    Upskirting bill

    Whoever drafted the Sexual Offences Act 2003, hence the need for an amendment.

    Upskirting bill

    We do have a law which covers voyeurism, the Sexual Offences Act 2003. The problem is that upskirting is not currently captured in the definition of voyeurism for England, Wales and Northern Ireland in the same way as in Scotland. The purpose of the bill is to include it in the act, so it's not a new law, it's an existing law being amended to take a new offence into account.
