You white, law-enforcing, 1-nil chanting, war-fighting, crowd-waving pr*ck!

Think I just about covered everything there.

Good good. But was that being politically correct, politically incorrect . . . . . or perhaps something entirely different?

To paraphrase a journalist whose name escapes me, I'm an equal-opportunities abuser. If someone gives me reason to mock them, mock them I shall. I think it shows a greater amount of discrimination to not mock someone just because they're of a different race/gender/sexuality/disability.

S Wood says:
I've no problem with mocking someone, but for a reason other than their ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation or disability. As in something they have done, or said, that they can be held to have decided to have done or said. Not for something they were born as. Though perhaps on that count i've been a little cruel to m.dowden?

S Wood, I got that from someone who works for the Beeb. Apparently it could be offensive to someone having a brainstorm. Don't ask me what a brainstorm is, as I've never heard of the medical term before. : )

Actually we say white, black etc., but police and in security the people become IC1, IC2, etc. : ) That is so that the rest of you don't know what we are talking about. : )

I think it's a reasonably good idea - particularly if it can cut down on costs and bureaucracy, but the right to have the case heard in court should remain in place for those who think they've been wrongly accused.
Always interesting to hear the ongoing cyclist v motorist debate raging. Now that I'm mainly a pedestrian I would hope the moronic and selfish antics of both motorists and cyclists would be tackled by the police; starting with all the paper boys who charge round darkened streets with no lights, the lycra-clad idiots who treat the pavement outside my house as if it was an Olympic cycle race track, and the impatient lady who squeezed into a non-existent gap between my neighbour's new car and the pavement, scratching all his paintwork with her pedal! Not to mention both motorists and cyclists who sail through red lights at pedestrain crossings. (Of course when I was driving I had an equally jaundiced view of pedestrians but I'm now of the opinion that they are paragons of road safety!!)

Just realised I left out key information in the last post. The lady pedal scratcher was caucasian, but was clearly a foreign interloper as she sounded just like that Lorraine Kelly woman off the telly.

I do not think you realise that riding a bicycle automatically gives the user immunity from any laws and a belief (erroneous) that the peddling person is immortal.

It's all about collecting money, police today all work for corporations,

It is a good idea as long as it applies to police drivers to, which it won't.
