Amongst all this it is apparent that it is not scumbag dogs to blame but scumbag humans. We can control the breeding and reproductive actions of dogs, but sadly we cannot do the same with scumbag, rubbish. moronic. anti social retards that have these dogs. As a dog lover of many years I know that wh...

And for those below the age of 35 the phrase

"I think we should be told",

Is a regular Private Eye phrase, sort of a smile icon from before computer days.
I believe Bensonsby is a Private Eye reader so he should have cottoned on.
you want Debate?

I didn't say that at all Barty. I am just intrigued. But I disagree with the phrase...... "anyone can comment on the law with an ounce of authority" we used to call them as did that barrack room lawyers. Now here's one just for Bensonby to comment on with authority :lol: How many Lawyers does it tak...

So tell us all Bensonby, just what are your legal qualifications /standing/employment/studies that enable you to speak on legal matters so authoritively?
Surely not just the part time hobby you claim.
I think we should be told.

Well said Nork1!!! Sadly that which many of us perceive to be the problem in society today is barred from open debate . We know what the cause [causes] are, we are not allowed to say out loud for fear of being howled down by a noisy and active minority professing freedom of speech for some, but not ...

To clarify. Paddy and Barty are quite right, and in general I am in agreement with the tone of what they said. but I am not advocate a return to some mythical golden age, the past is past, and often bad, thats why its good to reflect upon it. We pay for services which are very often unsatisfactory. ...
