  1. That's nice. The Czech's were obviously interested enough in what he said to to pay him, and s1 of the 1911 act is increadibly wide ranging. If plod are going to spend their time invistiating whether old men touched up little boys 40+ years ago then perhaps they could spend a moment or two investigating whether someone who aims to wield great power was in fact an agent of influence for our enemies.
  2. Sadly treason is time limited to 3 years for offences committed in the UK so he's (probably) safe on that front. Section 1(1)(c) of The Offical Secrets Act 1911 however is not time limited: If any person for any purpose prejudicial to the safety or interests of the State............... obtains, [collects, records, or publishes,] or communicates to any other person [any secret official code word, or pass word, or] any sketch, plan, model, article, or note, or other document or information which is calculated to be or might be or is intended to be directly or indirectly useful to an enemy.............. he shall be guilty of felony.
  3. Mass shooting Florida

    Then the authorities can deal with it the same as any other felony. Personally I doubt many "responsible" gun owners would be willing to criminalize themselves by ignoring the law, and those that do likely won't be gun owners for long. Actually I think the whole 2nd ammendment and concealed carry is at the heart of the problem. They seem to be taught from a young age that justice comes from the barrel of a gun and that defending yourself with a gun is a "right", this then normalizes the idea of shooting people "when they deserve it", which unsurprisingly then leads to a lot more gun violence. I think conversely they would actually need less regulation if as a society they didn't believe in some kind of god given right to go around blasting hot lead into people that offend them.
  4. Mass shooting Florida

    The first step would be to require all transfers of firearms to be through a FFL dealer, then after that progressively tighten up the rules on who can purchase and what can be transferred. The Canadians went one step further with full-auto machine guns, you need a permit to transport them anywhere and they won't issue you one. Not going to happen though.
  5. The Sweden is fucked thread

    And again, what he said had nothing to do with the title of that clip, the claim overlaid on the front of that clip for the duration or LTL's original claim.
  6. The Sweden is fucked thread

    The answer is in his Wikipedia entry: "Tivadar (his father) not only saved his immediate family but also many other Hungarian Jews, and George would later write that 1944 had been "the happiest [year] of his life," for it had given him the opportunity to witness his father's heroism"; and; Later that year at age 14, Soros posed as the Christian godson of an official of the collaborationist Hungarian government's Ministry of Agriculture, who himself had a Jewish wife in hiding. On one occasion, rather than leave the 14 year old alone, the official took Soros with him while he inventoried a rich Jewish family's estate, though Soros did not take part. So it's like a lot of internet b/s, a distortion of a couple of true facts into something completely untrue.

    Well, he would've been 8 or 9 at the time so there must be some doubt about that claim.
  8. A National Conversation on Immigration

    Problem is that makes you opposed to probably 80%+ of current migration and 95%+ of permanent migration, which puts you back into the "very anti-" category.
  9. A National Conversation on Immigration

    It might be interesting to complete the survey, keep a note of your responses and see how the headlines tie up with them.
  10. A National Conversation on Immigration

    The problem is there really isn't a middle ground, even the "very anti-" are unlikely to be opposed to "high value" immigration that actually adds value to society and to support anything else very quickly becomes "very pro-". I mean what could the middle ground look like? We want a cap of no more than 100,000 unemployable benefit dependent rapey head-choppy immigrants per year? What kind of person would support that? They may sound like they're making the right noises, but the reality is they're trying to label any opposition as extreme whilst claiming the (non-existant) middle ground for themselves.

    There was that nutter up in Manchester (?) who offed a couple of WPC's with one.
  12. Presumably this isn't something that's exclusive to the UK, I mean there are appartments in other countries as well so there must be some kind of similar arrangement there. Nothing wrong with the system per se, but when the poxy things are changing hands for £250k+ that's a problem.
  13. Unlikely to be a bomb IMO, not within a few minutes of take-off and the aircraft only got to about 6,000". Also a small regional jet flying to nowhere important is not a particular obvious target. Age of the aircraft is not that important and it won't help you if you exceed the maximum speed, and going off the charts it looks like it went down very quickly.
  14. That often happens if the pilots lose control, as the aircraft heads towards the ground it exceeds its maximum safe speed and the aerodynamic forces tear it apart. My guess would be some kind of issue with the rudder/tail.
  15. Las Vegas shootings

    You're overthinking things, Paddock most likely simply grabbed everything he had and took it with him.
