No Problem, Just Threaten me and you will find out! B)
But a number of Headlines Did catch my eye this morning..........................


Largest crime rise in England and Wales for 10 years
Crime in England and Wales has seen its largest annual rise in a decade, according to the Office for National Statistics.
The total number of crimes reported to and recorded by the police rose by 10% between April 2016 and March 2017 to almost five million.
Violent crime was up by 18%, robbery by 16% and sex offences by 14%.
The figures come as Home Office data shows the number of police officers is the lowest since 1985.
A report said there were 123,142 officers across all ranks in England and Wales at the end of March this year.
Despite the rise in crime recorded by police, the Crime Survey of England and Wales, based on people's experiences of crime, showed a 7% drop.
The Crime Survey is always published on the same day as the ONS figures.
Its results are based on a face-to-face survey of 38,000 adults and children in which they are asked about their experiences of crime in the previous year.
The method means it includes crimes that are never reported to the police.

Crime calculator: Find your personal risk of being a victim
Dominic Casciani
7 September 2017

Today, for the first time, BBC News, working with the Office for National Statistics, is providing you with a way of understanding your risk of being a victim of crime in England and Wales. If you are interested in Scotland, you can find out more about the Scottish Crime Survey on its official website.
The tool below uses national crime statistics, your address and your personal characteristics to tell you what's happened to people similar to you in the last year - and therefore something approaching a personal estimate of how likely you are to be a victim.
It only takes a moment to fill in, and the BBC does not keep the data, so punch in your details and have a look at the results:

Islam has alot to answer for. Will say no more on that as getting close to where you cannot question it's ideology and how backwards its taking this country.
Side note. I nearly got into a rucas with some tool only a couple of days ago as 3 kids were breaking a street sign and i said ill tell the police man for one of the kids parents starts shouting down the road at me and thretened to knock me out.
Obviously i was joking but just wanted the kids to stop. One good thing about chronic pain is on that particular day he probably could of as was struggling with legs so walked off. Sign of the times as i live in a small friendly village which is gradually getting worse and i'm just glad im not a youngster as it's a nasty place out there and shows no sign of improving.

It`s a scary thought these days that you can be using your smartphone and SWIPE....someone nabs it from your hand never to be seen again. I tend to only use my Smartphone indoors and not on a bus or while walking along the road unless it`s my wee trusty Samsung 2g model worth a huge £10!! The Smartphone I would never take out of my bag and mainly use it in the house. Maybe I`m just paranoid but I won`t take the chance.

Parents (or most of them) don`t seem to have a bloody clue these days. Many walk down the street staring at their phone while their kid is running 100 yards in front of them with no regard to road safety. I see this all the time. People driving cars using their phone (illegal) and just little annoyances.

The UK is a different place from when I was born and my mother`s generation. Way different.

But do visit the pub now and again, But down the Gym 3 times a week and Boxing club twice a week; So guess I don't conform to your average retired person :whistle:
Don't have much in the way of Immigration around here; Apart from a few English ;)
But I do see Islam as a problem in the Citys,; But by far the biggest problem is Illegal Drugs And very few Police.
Indeed a Very different UK from when I was Born.

I`m no guru on educating or historical facts, but being a non-religious person myself, I always thought that having a `belief` in something is fine, but with religion, it seems you have some kind of moral high over the law and over others? I`m all for equality and rights, but I shouldn`t be able to say I have a right to something or be treated differently because I am of a religious faith? It doesn`t mean I come from another planet. We are ALL human beings, no matter the colour OR the faith and that`s how it should be. But political correctness has gone out the window and now we have individuals, countries etc....feeling attacked by one another and far too much emphasis is based around the ethnicity of that person or that nation because they BELIEVE in some faith that gives them some sort of given rights? No, it shouldn`t, but it does. Lets leave history where it belongs, in the past and live in the century we are in and stop teaching kids about a man who came back to life (Jesus) after he died? Even modern day science can`t achieve that, never mind a virgin birth unless they had artificial incemination over 2000 years ago! Yet there is this massive global belief that we should all keep praying to something. Never solves anything, does it?
