    Agree with the first bit,  not sure I remember the remedy was ever that severe.   from the point of view of another sibling that’s gonna be a bit of a shock.
    One day you’re playing on the beach with your brother..  the next minute a freak wave sweeps him out to sea.  Before you know it your brother is dead,  your parents are in prison and the police have thrown you in a foster home with couple of alcoholics on a sink estate somewhere.
    That’s right up there as far as shit days go!

    I see the RNLI are now calling on the government to ban the public from  all beaches?
    What kind of fresh control freak-wittery is this?

    Possibly, though applying Occam's Razor I conclude that it's more likely to be clipboard wielding Karens in RNLI management who are treating the epidemic like the biggest health and safety crisis of all eternity.

    Someone reconsider their position on the internet.
    I was hoping to keep this going all night.
    I'll have to find another thread to be contrarian on.

    He looks like a dick. 
    But in any situation where it is:
    Looks like a bellend but doesn't want to ruin a person's life with a criminal conviction 
    Vs
    Looks like a bellend and does try to ruin a person's life with a criminal conviction
     
     
    I will always go with #1

    Quite possibly.
    But when is it acceptable to go batshit mental, choke a dog and then demand the police turn up asap as you are being "attacked" when you are not - simply coz some guy was acting like a bit of a power hungry twat.

    Yes.
    Look im not saying she is acting at all well in any aspect here but the video is disingenuous at best.
    However in the light of the, excluded, key fact that he did threaten her and that she was isolated then her behaviour becomes understandable.
    To me it looks like a mixture of trying to maintain poise whilst losing control and trying to be intimidating all the time trying to control a dog that has picked up on her emotion and is losing it.

    She's now doing the Karen trick of being very very sorry. Tears to follow soon.
    Black men in the US have been shot by cops for less than this.
    She should be prosecuted for making a false allegation and cruel treatment of the dog.

    That is wholly reprehensible.
    She should be facing a decent custodial sentence for that because without the phone evidence of the man he could have been facing the same.
    What a wicked woman.

    I once went to the premiere of a really shit Penelope Cruz film. She did a speech before the film and I was sat front row dead centre so she was about a metre away from me. She is unbelievably tiny. Like a scale model of a proper human.
    Edit to add: Was behind Jude Law at the cash point once. He’s a tiny little weedy halfwit.

    Don't think so, but it's possible, as the bullshit industry is quite a closed shop.

    It’s a very striking image. The actual event wasn’t actually as dramatic as the still image suggests. Bottom left corner of the shot.
    edit to add: googling “is pepper spray flammable” led me to this pretty quickly, so I guess it’s pretty unusual.

    I have been trying to work out what happened in this shot. Is the policeman pepper spraying him, but the firework in his hand ignited it?

    According to Wikipedia, the bassoon is also known as a fagott, or a fagotto…!
