But that's the thing, knobheads will just sharpen screwdrivers on a grinder instead of buying a kitchen set from Wilko's.
Or switch to other tools, wrecking bar, even my plastering trowel sharpened I could slash your face to bits.
They're tools is all, would you want me to have a license for my Paslode nailgun?
Laws don't save lives, societal change does.

They keep us all restricted to 'urban zones' and only hard work in the factories will earn enough credits to see the countryside. It's tough, but the bread rations are enough for us.

Didn't deserve being lost at the bottom of the last page, PMSL!
We have cider rations in my parts, tourist industry credit here not many factories...but we all survive on the crumbs of foreign income.

Honestly I am not calling for or advocating any ban, I am just offering my insight into the possible reasoning of the judge, he is paid a large sum of money (too much) for his opinions, rightly or wrongly to me and you.

But if knife crime is on the increase what other option (maybe he took the easy route) is there?

How are there still deer, or even trees for that matter, on that tiny little island with that many homo sapiens walking around?


There are thought to be 1.5 million deer in Britain. I get deer in my garden, along with badgers and the occasional pikey taking a short-cut from the pub. Just think... If I was in the States I could legitimately shoot them.

The UK, or specifically England is not London.

I don't know mate, in my parts using a weapon of any kind is frowned upon by the tribe. It's not a generational thing either, I was chatting to my early twenties son about it, he says it's still the same in his generation, fists is being a man, knives is being a girl.
I know some big time bad boys as well, just in these parts it's only weapons when somebody rips someone else off for a large deal or whatever, then it's just punishment, not a 'fair' fight.
It's a societal problem in some #ty parts of Britain...laws won't change a thing.

Agreed.
This is my mantra.

Lets just not make it easier for knobheads to purchase knives then, may i suggest speaking to a relative of a victim of knife crime, i promise you saving 1 persons life ultimately can save many, the hurt and pain caused when a young life is lost is insurmountable for some people.

You aren't being serious are you? Yes it may cause insurmountable pain but the last thing you want to do is throw all logic out the window and let your emotions guide you. Criminals are always going to be able to acquire knives regardless of how hard you try to stop them because it's simply a sharpened bit of metal. Thinking that regulation on sharps bit of metal could ever possibly work is so ridiculous it verges into the realm of insanity...

The beauty is we don't have a pro-knife lobby entwined in our Parliament or Judicial system. It means it's possible to discuss problems with knives without it becoming an existentialist partisan conflict. For example, most Brits would probably agree that we don't like the idea of teenage criminals walking around with machetes or zombie knives. Doesn't matter if they're black, white or whatever, nobody wants them armed with big knives...or bottles of acid.

At the same time, we can just about muster the mental wherewithal to appreciate that criminals won't retire if they can't get access to big knives. Yes, they'll find other ways. We can reflect and see it as a problem of society that isn't fixable by jailing everyone carrying a knife. And still we can have the discussion in peace.

Without the pressure of lobbyists, we can have the conversation at work or round the kitchen table without it being a Left/Right dynamic. No sweat broken and no spit spat.

Agreed. We have lots of deer here - even in Central London. Look, here are some in this short video:

You sound like you dont want a discussion. Did you preface all your comments with such a rider as you drift into this thread and the other? Ever consider that my response to you is not a private message but on topic and shared for other posters as well? You've been here awhile so this is nothing new to you.



And if it was 1 member of your family who you loved which was saved I would be happy yet you state


Well skylab landed in the outback of Australia, if it had landed closer to Perth and killed a few of my relatives I should demand the end of all space exploration. Makes sense yeah?

What has the OP described that is not factual. The amount of cameras doing surveillance of public places?



To be fair, the only place that's ANYTHING like you describe is North Korea.


Have you been to North Korea? Like Reductio ad Hitlerum maybe we need a Reductio ad Kim Jong Un? as I see this card played all the time.

All well and good in the 5 eyes nations

Now the New York Times claims the ball was set rolling after a tip from a trusted ally, with Australia's very own Alexander Downer front and centre. The newspaper claims Mr Downer had a night of heavy drinking with former Trump campaign aide George Papadopoulos at the Kensington Wine Rooms in London in May 2016. According to the Times, it was Mr Downer who held his booze better — extracting an admission from Mr Papadopoulos that Russia was shopping dirt on Hillary Clinton to her political rivals. When leaked Democratic Party emails began appearing in public two months later it is alleged Australian officials passed on the Downer intel to American counterparts, helping to trigger the FBI probe into Russian interference in the US election.

Come now...that adheres to the Liechtenstein psychiatric model of treatment by Dr. Emil Shaffhausen. A modern US psychiatrist would have just medicated him prior to dinner

Only in the proper season.

Here in the States, there are, reportedly, more whitetail and mule deer than in the early 19th century.

The critters are every where.

I agree with the op I nearly cut myself in two a little while ago while practicing with my sharp Scottish hilted broadsword.
That watermelon made it slip.

If more people carried knives in London urban knife crime would vanish. Swords would make people feel even safer.
