    You have focussed on NO2 but have omitted the particulates issue that is also a comparatively worse pollutant from diesels than petrols.

    Kurt Barlow reacted to Sgt Hartman in Universal credits starting to bite?   
    It's going to take a generation before the reality sinks in that it's no longer financially profitable to have loads of kids on the state tit. Until that point, there will be a myriad of people like this whining that everyone is being mean to them by not forking over tens of thousands a year tax-free and keeping them ticking over in the lifestyle to which they have become accustomed.
    They do really need to hold the line on this one though and not be swayed by shite like I heard on R4 where people like this are made out to be some kind of victim of a totalitarian state - the same state that pays to put them in the wealthiest 1% of the worlds population for doing nothing, despite their protestations to the contrary - and the simplest of simple question is never asked of people like this:
    "So why did you have six children you can't afford and why do you expect everyone else to pick up the tab?"
    The welfare dependacy reset button needs to be pushed and then taped down.

    I listened to his show. He started off quite well but his response to those who phone in is appalling. I wont be listening to him again.
    On the other hand I've listened to Gerard Batten and find his patient and calm manner when being questioned by very disparaging interviewers reassuring. I think he  would make a good leader for UKIP and he expresses a more logical and consistent policy to address the major issues we are currently facing. I haven't heard his economic policies but then could they be any worse than the alternatives we have to choose from?

    This pisses me off. I’m an excellent swimmer and it was once my main form of exercise.  I now look in the local pools, see the type of people using them and just can’t bring myself to get in the water.

    She was very popular in the Iranian community as most of her videos were in Farsi or Turkish. This was based on laughing at her as her videos were serious but absurd.

    If he can do a good enough frail old man turn in court then there's no way a jury will convict.
    It might be different if the burglar had been a kid or something, but that's not the case.

    Israel was (is) bringing in a policy of sending asylum seekers to prison indefinitely or   giving them £2,500 to go back to Africa. It's absolute common sense...
    Yeah, we all know life in Africa is shit for many. However it's not up to Europe to look after them....

    Heathenry! That's one of my favourites if it's done properly 
    Honourable mention to Coopers Pale Ale as well. It was quite stupendously disgusting, like water that had previously been in a mop-bucket and used to clean out engines. That is the only beer I've ever drank whose first sip was followed by 'what the fuck?'

    The ptoblem law pros has is tgat the number of law grads is huge.
    10,000 pile into Unis to start their legal career.
    Then only a few get a training contract.
    Their argument might hold some grounds is their was a shortage of lawyers or barristers. There isnt.
    Law does not attract clever people, idiots in the main. David Lammy.
    Years ago, I was talking to someone whos daughter was off to study law at some ex pokl.
    Shes made, the parent said.
    No shes not, i thought. Id been chatting to one o the few grads from Durham uni law degree who managed to get a teaining contract. 50% of her class failed to achieve that. Im guessing the figures for unis outside of the top ones are dire.
