Pre tax aviation - is that when you fly away before you have to pay your tax?

A juror has gone to a funeral. Just legal arguments today without the jury.

What's not inconclusive is the two(!) exaggerated collapses. Always the giveaway.

Gerry Kelly walks the Camino, Radio Six Counties/Ulster 12.30pm today if anyone is interested.

Still have a hankering to do it myself at some stage. Will be interesting to hear what he has to say.

Get the bus to Portadown and walk back to Newry along the towpath. It will lift your soul.

I'd say that applies no matter how you leave Portadown.

I just read about many police officers and servicemen who, when asked if they would go to peoples homes and take the guns from them, to a man/woman they said no, they would refuse ANY order to do so

So the armed services would mutiny? It's even more screwed up than I thought.

After all these years Iíve become numb to these senseless atrocities and read in amazement as posters continue to advocate the value of gun control to imbecile yanks. Itís been clear for years that yanks are too ignorant, arrogant or pigheaded to even consider modest measures and, as is apparent by their recent choice of president, their numbers seem to swell as the years go by.

... tell you what, go say that to a serviceman, any serviceman in the US and see what happens, I would love to watch that video, you would be kicked up and down the street and I would f**king love it.

Whether he's right or wrong, don't you think your response kinda makes his point for him?

Seanie has your home ever been broken in to? While you were there? My good friends at home were woken at gun point in Amagh, tied up in the kitchen while the house was ransacked. That was about 15 years ago...... There have been similar events on a weekly basis all over ireland.
No come to america. It happens all the time here. If someone comes in to your house and your daughters and your wife are there and they have intent to do harm, to take a child..... I don't know how you can just blanket bomb these situations with - nobody needs a handgun.  I hope I never do. But I'm glad I have one in case I ever do...


If you're woken up at gunpoint your own weapon isn't worth a f**k to you then is it? Obviously sympathies to anyone who faces that ordeal but unless you take your gun out of it's safe storage box and shoot someone in the dark it's bugger all use to you really.

And you're saying that this happens more often in the US....it's as if greater gun ownership isn't a deterrent or something???!!!!

Complete nonsense my friend. Don't let the boogeyman stories infect your thought process.

I have watched many videos of stings.What exactly do people find objectionable? Any I've seen the person caught is obviously guilty. They are subjected to an aggressive humiliation,but hell slap it up them.The Police are informed and invariably arrive,there is no physical threat to the person caught unless he tries to do a runner.What is so objectionable? Do you object to the cops ramming suspected drug dealers doors? Or the showing of images on Crimewatch?

Would you find it objectionable if a  paedophile is outed by these guys, escapes prosecution because the hunters have prejudiced evidence and the paedophile goes to ground and pops up elsewhere and abuses there?

You mean after the Hunters as is customary,told the Police? Yes I would find it objectionable and would blame the useless police and rotten legal system that is unfit for purpose.

Stupidity got you to this point. It's not going to get you back from here.

... it amazes me that people actually would push for people to be put in a position where they can self incriminate themselves. This is not a fact finding mission unfortunately, this is justice and seeing that justice is done. Justice works on the presumption of innocence and while that is the bedrock of the legal system a defendant will never be compelled to give evidence.

... silence would indeed raise serious questions about whether they have something to hide ...

Not giving information at an interview is good advice ...

This does not mean I believe they are innocent Syferus and others who do think they are guilty..

NEVER talk to the police

Bullshit comment.
So if the police arrest you and question regarding a crime at a certain location and time you say nothing. Despite the fact that you were in a location 100 miles away at the time and there are witnesses and CCTV to support your story.
You deserve to be kept in custody for that type of stupidity

Watch the video and repeat that comment.

People mistakenly believe the role of the prosecutor is to secure justice. It is not. It is to secure convictions. People can be falsely convicted in circumstances similar to those you describe. For example.

And, by the way, why not try to be a little less uncouth in your contributions here?

So is there some sort of triage process in the appointments process or what? Do they ask you what's wrong or do you wait three weeks whether you just need a prescription renewal or your eyes are bleeding?
