  1. A journey of a thousand miles starts with a single step. Becoming free from the rotten EU is the first step in regaining our country and repairing the horrific damage that membership has caused.

    Time To Change The Law On Drugs?

    I disagree. With limited resources prioritisation must take place. That prioritisation should not be based on simplistic determination such as what might be escalated to Crown Court or what you describe as "either way" offenses but on what are most significant in terms of social impact. Importation, possession, or use of cannabis does not fall anywhere near that.
  4. Not only that but the Crimea historically is part of Russia.
  5. I really don't see it that way, Obama played the "red under the bed" card even though there was no red in order to gain popularity because of the deep seated fear of the USSR that remains in the red neck part of the US population in spite of the USSR being extinct. No doubt a part of the hatred from Obama if not most of it was the Russia was kicking arse of Islam expansion in the southern states of the Russian Federation along with Russia aligning with the legitimate Syrian government against the islamic forces waged against the legitimate Assad government. Indeed Obama created a potential enemy out of a nation federation that didn't want to be anything but a partner. Then there's NATO. NATO is well passed its use. By date and really should be disbanded. NATO was created to confront the USSR and it's possible expansion. The USSR no longer has existed for decades, the Russian Federation is nothing like the USSR was and never will be but we do have an enemy that we should be confronting and a NATO MK2 is desperately needed but one that includes the Russian Federation as a key member.

    The Channel should not be the only clear blue water between Britain and Europe.

    I believe that's more likely to happen in the AG's office than anywhere in the police.

    But he pulled England out of a corrupt regime. As for Churchill, he was a fine one to criticize! Churchill was a war criminal.

    When resources are very limited it's best to go for where you get the biggest bang for the buck and not the low hanging fruit which has very little value to society when taken out.

    Of course we do! Like the Cromwellian regime we want to get corruption out of our country!

    Decriminilise all drugs and let nature cleanse the gene pool. People with a supposedly "addictive personality" will then have a choice, deal with it or let it deal with them. Having said that to the best of my knowledge cannabis isn't addictive in the way that many legal substances such as alcohol, tobacco and even coffee is it it is habit forming and so IMO certainly should be decriminised. It's interesting to see just why cannabis was criminalised in the FIRST place. Again, and just IMO, for absolutely no good reason. One thing that gets far too little consideration is the huge knock on costs resulting from cannabis being an illegal substance. The crime that is committed to pay the supplier, the criminality that takes place throughout the supply train, and the exceptionally poor cost/benefit ratio in the judicial system all the way from Plod to Prison. One of the great truths right alongside that fat dogs fart is that it's not wise to engage in a war you stand no chance of winning. The war against cannabis can't be won.

    What certainly IS true is that the island and it's future is of absolutely no interest let alone concern for the vast majority of people over here. Indeed of those who have heard of it few could find it on a map. That's not being snotty, it's a fact.
