The cases have been working their way through the courts for years to have them expunged. The appeals process is slow because it’s a complex process, the show has just brought it in to the public eye more and politicians struggle to ignore the mob.

Acey/walt/morph might be able to say a bit more about the complexity of it.

This has been tumbling on behind the scenes in parliament but government hasn't been interested in doing anything substantial until this came on the TV.

See that PO scandal thing, most boring ever! Was on every radio station the day, like how many time can you go over the same thing, ffs. I will say however, that spiv (I'm no technically minded, that geezer) they had conducting all the investigations for the PO, need him on more, need a proper villan.

Funny you should say that, i turned the radio on this morning, listened to about 3 words about the post office and turned it back off. 
It's just all shit we already knew years ago, I suppose they need to be seen to be doing something about it now, but aye, just get the payments sent to the people they've fucked over.

Looks like we’re going to be fighting all the way for the red white and blue in the Middle East again. What a country this is. Imagine looking at the Gaza Strip right now and thinking I want to be on the Israeli side here. Fat Cunt

Heard a bird on the radio saying how she is struggling with the cost of living etc, when asked how much she earned, she said 60k a year.

Quote:TikTok and Temu have pulled cheap electric heaters from their online stores after Which? found they could explode or start house fires.
The consumer group tested eight heaters, the cheapest of which was £7.20, and found most did not meet UK safety standards.
It said the devices, some of which had been promoted by influencers on TikTok, posed "a serious safety risk" to users.

sounds about right

Interesting the zero tolerance approach to showing support for terrorist groups when it comes to Palestine, if they had shown this attitude across the board over the years then there’d be no football fans left in Glasgow without terror offences Laugh

I’m sure the Celtic board recently banned a whole bunch of their fans (potentially the GB can’t mind) for showing support to a terrorist group without a hint of irony.

As you’d expect the “free speech/can’t say nuffink these days” lot are very quiet around this.
