Re gun control or the lack thereof, this is insane and fascinating in equal measure.

The rules behind what they can and cannot do really do appear to be a criminal attempt to prevent ever identifying a gun owner from their gun.

Remember this sign from a while back? No?
Well, to refresh:

Parking behind the CoOp was 20 mins free. Then signs and ANPR appeared, and you had to type car reg in to get 20 free minutes. Many didn't, and were fined as per T&Cs.

Anyhoo, I dropped a note to local counciller and local MP over the signs not being terribly clear. Counciller responded and he had passed it over to MP. So, MP raises the issue in Parliament, and sends me half a dozen letters with copies of his correspondance with the council solicitors, parking ombudsman and other people.

Today, in the local paper reports:
Quote:
THE operator of a controversial car park has been ordered to shut it down and refund thousands of pounds in fines slapped on unsuspecting motorists.

Bradford Council took the dramatic step after receiving a host of complaints about the way private car park company Smart Parking was running the site at Oastler Road, Saltaire.

The authority was able to step in after discovering that the patch of land had never legally been turned into a car park and was still part of the public highway.

But in doing so, the Council has also had to hold its hands up to running the car park illegally itself for more than a decade, and now faces a major refund programme of its own.


http://www.thetelegraphandargus.co.uk/n ... ial_fines/

Which is amazing. And has amused me.

So, I think P Davies will do OK in an election, again, as he's shown himself to be looking after community interests, especially as the council is a Labour run one and fingers can be pointed.

That article about the ATF is mental. On one hand, the NRAtards are saying "we need guns in case we need to stand up against the government!" And on the other they are so bloody terrified of the government taking away their guns that it is illegal for the ATF to have computer records. You can't have it both ways, idiots.

It's brilliant in its idiocy.

Bloody hell.

Quote:
The archbishop of York has attacked the "new and terrible" blight of food poverty and increasing malnutrition in Britain, questioned the effects of the government's welfare reforms and called for a renewal of the postwar spirit that hungered for "a more equitable, more caring world".
...
Reports of malnutrition and food poverty in Yorkshire "disgrace us all, leaving a dark stain on our consciences", he said. "How can it be that last year more than 27,000 people were diagnosed as suffering from malnutrition in Leeds – not Lesotho, not Liberia, not Lusaka but Leeds?"

For once I agree. It's a fucking disgrace and utterly perplexing. :(
