Hello Suzy I see you are at it again! You told me you had a family to look after. I will make your life a bit easier if you wish to chase me around these boards. Sometimes I post on Pets (though I know little about the arachna family or horses); the PC boards; occasionally News. I have nothing against you, Suzy, at all. I have read some of your posts and think they are valuable. I did not hack your a/c last time - not sure what happened there. If I have offended you or anything like that, I apologise. Take care Fran
I noticed that with the Bristol anti-racist statue protests in the UK that many were wearing brand names of trainers. Those trainers were made using slave labour in Bangladesh.
So will they now throw away their trainers in protest? I thought not. Filthy hypocrites.1 AnswerRamadan4 months ago
In the light of the recent anti-racism protests, and the anti-slavery statue protests in the UK, can we expect Mount Rushmore to be dynamited because George Washington features there? Mr Washington was a slave-owner.
I await with eagerness any constructive reply.3 AnswersCurrent Events4 months ago
Is there a reason - maybe someone can explain it to me - why the boxer Muhammed Ali, is not condemned as a racist in the US, indeed, regarded as a hero? In 1971, Joe Frazier hammered Ali in Madison Sq in NY (it is on YouTube) and took away Ali's world crown. In the build up to their rematch in the Philippines, Ali repeatedly denounced Frazier - both black boxers - as the 'Gorilla in Manila'.
Frazier was dignified in the face of Ali's racist spite, but that is irrelevant to my question. Why is Ali, the racist, regarded as a hero?
It was up to me, I would have put him behind bars.

What do these women expect? They were invited to attend in their underwear (almost). None of them would have been
pregnant or menstruating, I'll bet. Women have breasts and a bush. Men want breasts and a bush (some don't even mind if it
This undercover job was concocted to set men up, to engender sensation in the press. There is no need to set men up.
In every pub, every night, men remark and joke about women and what they would like to do with them. A man's natural
desire is to penetrate a woman and, if truth be told, a woman's natural desire is to be penetrated.
Women can be the same. I spoke to a fork-lift truck driver recently who told me his job was to stack palettes in a
warehouse. Several weeks ago, during one shift, he notices that the top palette had not slotted in correctly in its 'cage'. So he climbed up the stack of palettes to re-balance it and, as he did so, a female shop-floor worker, sneaked up behind him and pulled down his track-suit bottoms and shorts. His female co-worker, only very recently married, was laughing out loud. He turned round, inadvertently, and all his other female co-workers laughed, too.
Feminism and political correctness are unheard of where I live, thank God.

we read this as the basis for eviction:
Ground 14 – The tenant or a person residing in or visiting the dwelling house...
has been guilty of conduct causing or likely to cause a nuisance or annoyance to the landlord of the dwelling house…
What does that mean 'guilty'? Found guilty in a court of law?4 AnswersRenting & Real Estate3 years ago
in a scheme of some 50 flats run by a housing association.
Among the written policies of the housing association is that:
1) Staff must not socialise with tenants outside working hours;
2) There can be no sexual contact between staff and tenants.
In my housing scheme, most tenants are quite elderly and do not have any dementia or mental health problems.
Is the policy of the housing association their policy only - which anyone can draw up - or does it have a basis in UK law?
If it has a basis in law, which legislation and/or case studies should I try to read, please?2 AnswersLaw & Ethics3 years ago
the police have said: “Our priority is to ensure the victims’ next of kin are notified and supported...." What happens if a victim's next of kin does not want police or family liaison support? Or any social workers. I wouldn't want their sympathy.
I have nothing against them but I would consider their presence as adding another factor to my distress. I am sure they are professionals but they would be superfluous in my case.
I would prefer to mourn, as I always have done, alone. Will they leave if requested, or would the next of kin need to leave maybe to a hotel somewhere, or would a legal letter be required to get them to leave.2 AnswersLaw & Ethics3 years ago
If I can take an example. We have Mr A and a musician who are next door neighbours. The musician likes to play his music loudly, much to the annoyance of Mr A. Mr A complains verbally to the musician about the noise levels which disturb his every minute. The musician disregards his neighbour's complaint, and so Mr A writes to him formally. Again, his complaint falls on deaf ears, so Mr A writes to his local council. Council officers visit the musician who, again, disregards their advice and legal threats.
At the end of his tether, Mr A applies to a court for an injunction to stop the musician from playing his music for x
amount of time, let's say a year. The musician complies with the injunction which expires.
What happens then? The musician knows he cannot return to his old ways with his loud music because Mr A will simply seek
another injunction. On the other hand, he doesn't want to live in a world of silence, so he tells himself he is prepared to compromise with Mr A and play his music at half the previous volume. Is that how it works: the musician needs to contact Mr A and propose a compromise?

(for the over 55s), a housing association has published a policy statement on relations between its staff and its residents.
The statement says that staff can befriend a resident but not be friends with them (it doesn't say anything about whether or not a resident can be friends with a member of staff). What is the difference, please, between befriending someone and being friends with them, and does this have a basis in law?
If a member of staff cannot be friends with a resident because it somehow blurs so-called professional boundaries, is it best for the resident to give up his/her tenancy so that a friendship may develop? I can't think of another way around it.
Both staff member and resident are compus mentis and of a similar age.5 AnswersLaw & Ethics3 years ago
