    The general gist of it was act like all the criminal r-soles, make so much more work for them, make complaints about them etc. All complaints have to be taken seriously, say your gay and so and so made a homophobic slur etc, it creates so much hassle and work they just want to get rid of you.
    Here I found it:
    In these days of us increasingly having to deal with law abiding folk who have fallen foul of the âentitled poorâ and those who have learned how to use us to score points and exact revenge, I thought it would be a good idea to give out a bit of general guidance for those law abiding types who find themselves under suspicion or under arrest. It works for the bad guys so make it work for you.

    Complain First

    Always get your complaint in first, even if it is you who started it and you who were in the wrong. If things have gone awry and you suspect the cops are going to be called, get your retaliation in first. Ring the cops and allege for all you are worth. If you can work a racist or homophobic slant into it so much the better.

    Make a counter allegation

    Regardless of the facts, never let the other side be blameless. If they beat you to the phone, ring anyway and make a counter allegation against them. Again racism or homophobia are your friends. If you are not from a visible minority ethnic culture, may I suggest that that the phrase âYou gay bastardâ or similar is always useful. In extremis allege sexual assault. It gives us something to bargain with when getting the other person to drop their complaint on a quid-pro-quo basis.

    Never explain to the Police


    If the Police arrive to lock you up, say nothing. You are a decent person and you may think that reasoning with the Police will help. âIf I can only explain, they will realise it is all a horrible mistake and go awayâ. Wrong. We do want to talk to you on tape in an interview room but that comes later. All you are doing by trying to explain is digging yourself further in. We call that stuff a significant statement and we love it. Decent folk canât help themselves.

    Admit Nothing

    To do anything more than lock you up for a few hours we need to prove a case. The easiest route to that is your admission. Without it, our case may be a lot weaker, maybe not enough to charge you with. In any case, it is always worth finding out exactly how damning the evidence is before you fall on your sword. So donât do the decent and honourable thing and admit what you have done. Donât even deny it or try to give your side of the story. Just say nothing.

    Keep your mouth shut

    Say as little as possible to us. At the custody office desk a Sergeant will ask you some questions. It is safe to answer these. For the rest, say nothing.

    Claim Suicidal Thoughts

    A debatable one this. Claiming to be thinking about topping yourself has several benefits. If you can keep it up, it might just bump up any compensation payable later. On the other hand you may find yourself in a paper suit with someone watching your every move.

    Always always always have a solicitor

    Duh. No brainer this one. Unless you know 100% for sure that your mate the solicitor does criminal law and is good at it, ask for the Duty Solicitor. They do criminal law and they are good at it. Then listen to what the solicitor says and do it. Their job is to get you off without the Cops laying a glove on you if at all possible. It is what they get paid for. They are free to you. There is no down side. Now decent folks think it makes them look like they have something to hide if they ask for a solicitor. Irrelevant. Going into an interview without a solicitor is like taking a walk in Tottenham with a Rolex. Bad things are very likely to happen to you.

    Actively complain about every officer and everything they do

    Did they cuff you when they brought you in? Were they rude to you? Did they racially or homophobically abuse you? Didnât get fed? Cell too cold? You are decent folk who donât want to make a fuss but trust me, it pays to whinge and no matter how trivial and / or poorly founded your complaint there are people who will uncritically listen to you and try and prove the complaint on your behalf. Some of them are even police officers.

    Show no respect to the legal system or anybody working in it

    You think that if you are a difficult, unpleasant, sneering, unco-operative and rude things will go badly for you and you will be in more trouble. No sirree Bob. It seems that in fact the worse you are, the easier things will go for you if, horror of horrors, you do end up convicted. Remember to fake a drink problem if you havenât developed one as a result of dealing with us already. Magistrates and Judges do seem to like the idea that you are basically good but the naughty alcohol made you do it. They treat you better. Crazy I know but true.

    So there you go, basically anything you try and do because you are decent and staightforward hurts you badly. Act like an habitual, professional, lifestyle criminal and chances are you will walk away relatively unscathed. Copy the bad guys, its what they do for a living.

    Not specific to Aldi but they are rather good at imitation 
    Im partial to the occasional Baileys with ice at Christmas, I find O’Donnells to be a perfectly acceptable alternative as a nightcap, any possible flavour inferiority not noticed as my tastebuds have been killed with other alcoholic indulgence prior, cheers.

    I was luckier than you regardng housing. It was gifted to me and I know it because of personal and wider political and social circumstances 
    Bought my very nice sandstone council flat in a block of four in the sell off for £8250.....half price due to paying a modest affordable rent for a number of years. If I remember correctly, rent was a quarter of my salary. Sold it two years later for £28k. I repaid a few thousand pounds of the discount but can’t remember the exact amount.
    Put down a deposit of a third of the price for a cottage by the sea in a nice village. Purchased for 36k in 1990 and sold for £186k in 2005. Now..........that really troubled me at the time while reading about house price increases, priced out of the village folk, holiday home buyers etc. Also listening to people around me rejoicing in house price increases and hailing the price my former home realised. Hmmmmm.......I still had to buy another home and all the rest were ridiculously overpriced too so had to cough up but not mortgage free due to having to borrow to buy out ex. 
    Anyway one more move after that 8 years ago and I became mortgage free. Only worked part time since 1993 because I could. 
    Life is a lottery!
    I know I’m lucky to have been gifted a paid up home but on the other hand I wish I had a long term good relationship partnership with a suitable person. In my opinion that is the best prize in life.
    You’ll probably have a different view from me entirely but that’s life.

    It will fit on a commercial one. The only one I have that has two discs is "Once Upon A Time In America", but that's well over four hours.
    It would need to be highly compressed to fit on a regular writable DVD on a computer, though a dual-layer disc would be fine.

    A Festive Film. Odd one this and a bit violent. While we Anglo Saxons settle down to Black Christmas (1974) and listen to Merry Xmas by Slade, Germans watch Last Stop on the Night Train (1975) and listen to 99 red balloons.
    A homicidal pair of druggies team up with a nymphomaniac business woman they just happen to meet on the Night Train from Germany to Italy( yep very likely scenario) and wreak havoc, rape and murder. Music Dennis Rousseau.
    Well structured film with all threads coming together.

    Sugarlips reacted to Van Lady in I don’t want to go to work today   
    It all depends on how one defines work in my opinion.
    Like many on the forum I have a family and home.
    I’ve always been much more enthusiastic about doing things pertaining to home, family and personal enjoyment. As a female I think it’s natural that my focus would be that area.
    Lots of running household work stuff is uninspiring but it has to be done everyday. Other jobs like repainting etc is work that needs to be done. I’ve always had to do it myself but wish I could pay someone to do that stuff because I hate it.
    Perhaps I hate going to a paid job because I’ve always found it boring? Perhaps because I’ve always been low paid I resent going to paid jobs? I strived for many years to get better pay but it never happened. Don’t regard myself as thick or worthless at all but I always hated going to paid jobs because I can always think of something than needs doing or better to do with my time.
    Thankfully I don’t have to go to many paid jobs these days but obviously I’m skint. Not desperately skint but a bit more money would enhance life. No opportunity out there for me these days. On the scrap heap despite 40+ years contributions to the system......not enough to draw a state pension these days.
    I won’t pay another penny into the current system by doing paid work that attracts tax or ni.

    Indeed financial independence is one thing, and a massive achievement in itself. living a full, active, happy life and still having some sort of purpose is quite another, and of course everyone is on their own journey so will get enjoyment from different things.
    Certainly taking the work-life blinkers off and walking away from the brainwashed norm is step 1..

    @Tdog made a very good point on another thread that once our accommodation is paid for/off we should learn to be content with what we have and focus on living now. Pertinent whilst watching the madness of crowds at shopping centres today.
    so for those who have achieved it, what are your secrets to fulfillment?
