Definitely lucky, but to be fair there isn't much thieving in my parts, only the smack-heads really. There is a local facebook page which pretty much everyone who has internet follows, and there are found phones posted on there every day which get reunited with their owners.
Found dogs get posted regularly as well and the council hate it as their dog-catcher has lost thousands in income because people don't phone them anymore, they mind the dogs and post on the fb page instead. If the dog-catcher gets them they charge £150 'fine'. People power haha!

I'm loving Soulfire mate. Never heard of them before, their vibe takes me back to the 90's, will listen to them a bit more, nice one.


EDIT
You've got me in a 90's mood now, here's Suede, I had a minor crash with these guys in a country lane just outside the Glastonbury festival years ago. They were driving a Volvo estate and I was driving an Austin Metro. We were both going too fast around a bend and with screeching brakes we hit head on smashing headlights but no injuries.
We all pissed laughing, their driver (I won't say which band member) seemed like he shouldn't have been driving lol, but it's the countryside so who cared!

I can imagine the conversation...

"Well fancy running into you! Er...can I get your autograph, my friends will never believe this story otherwise. No, it's not an insurance form!" LOL

Haha, we were both in similar 'questionable' states of driver sobriety so just laughed, had a chat and pretended it hadn't happened!
I bumped into Michael Evis that same day as well (The owner of the farm at Glastonbuy) he was well chilled, teasing, he asked me if there was something wrong with my eyes because they looked like black balls on a pool table. I laughed and said someone must have spiked me but thanks for running the festival, and thanks for the crap security he used to have back in the day when I used to get in for free. He chuckled to be fair.

Here's my favourite Glasto performance ever, 'James', I was in this crowd, in pretty much the same 'mashed up' state as Tim Booth the lead singer, ah, goosebumps just listening to it...

If so we are looking not a just an elephant in the room but a whole bleedin' herd of them.

Sigh. I would order a bacon sarnie but I have picked up this pesky stomach bug and am not hungry. A milky coffee, please?

Incidentally, why do people say "Can I get..." when they order. Seems to be another beardy hipster twat thing. I don't speak Starbucks, either.

Shh, you are not allowed to point out that every major gang-grooming sex abuse case so far has been Muslim men attacking white non-Muslim girls. I know it's a fact, but it's against PC rules to mention it.
I'm just glad I live in my corner of the island where so far no organised grooming gangs of such a nature or any ethnicity have been discovered so far. Strange how there have not been any major organised white/non-Muslim grooming gangs raping kids who are Muslim.
Maybe it's just a coincidence, nothing to do with cultural difference of course [/sarc]

Milky coffe coming up, and yep 'can I have' is the way to say it, just the hipsters watch too much US television and pick up the lingo.
I called my son out the other day, he said shall we watch a movie later, I replied "What, are you American now? It's called a film" lol

No, to point that out is probably an "ism" of some kind. Too true, though.

Not an elephant....the biggest of big woolly mammoths!

But still we aren't allowed to say we have a specific problem within a specific section of our society.

Absolutely heart breaking for the poor girls concerned, truly boils my piss.

I'll go even further out on a limb and guess that the victims came from broken homes possibly even in care.
The most vulnerable in our society and the one's we should be actively protecting.

Not wanting to detract or deflect away from the scummy, perverted nonces who are responsible for these crimes but as reluctant as I am to say it without evidence but I think it again highlight some inherent failings in social care within the UK.

No it's a 'phobic' isn't it?
Pity for the poor girls though, I bet they were the classic vulnerable (in care) types as in previous grooming cases.
The breakdown of communities is a major factor though in my opinion.
In my parts I've known a few paedo's disappear over the years, no police, no witnesses, just they seemed to leave town without saying goodbye.
There was a guy only a couple of weeks ago, I didn't see him getting bundled into a car though so I would be unable to offer any useful information to the police.

...I'd hate to live in the places these horrible crimes have happened in recently, it seems their communities are no longer able to look after themselves and their vulnerable young people.

Wow, the lyrics apply equally today.
Local justice is quite common here, it's funny reading in the local rag "Police are seeking information in connection with..." but everyone in the community actually knows what happened, who did 'it', and why.
Wrong-uns fear pain, they do not fear police and the justice system, it's how it is.

Now, here's an eclectic tune I really like after hearing it sampled at a trance night off my nut back in the day. This is the cafe's mood for the rest of the evening...

Loved the song!

What are you guys talking about? Seems like one those days when suddenly beer bottles tables and the kitchen cook go flying in the air and through the window lmao

If this is going to turn into a 'let's go out there right now and hunt them all' moment please let me know, I'll bring my bat and torch too

He is talking about how these things are dealt with in Cornwall. Where are you from? Maybe you are not familiar with Cornwall?

Cornwall is a remote outpost of England separated from the rest of the country by wild moorland and badlands roamed by scrumpy crazed Pixies and gigantic cat beasts. It can only really be reached by 4x4's or SUV's.

Cornish folk are dirt poor and dress in rags called smocks. They mostly eat straw. If they are lucky they also eat pasties. You do not want to know what goes into them. All their houses have been bought up by Londoners (mostly beardy hipster twats) who use them as holiday homes so they mostly have nowhere to live. They spend most of their time in corner shops buying cheap illicit tobacco and alcohol, or in Pubs (see below).

Cornish Police are largely confined to the cities, if you can call them that, so justice is for the most part dispensed with by the locals in courts known as "Pubs".

You get the picture?

Haha!

I've been in places where that has happened a few times! I've even been the one thrown through the window.

We've got some cultural conflicts going on the UK right now, and although this is the 'Banter Cafe', just like anywhere the conversation can swing to local news and emotions can be high sometimes. There is another thread for that issue now though so chat here will probably revert to something normal like moaning about British weather or something lol
It's been too hot for a good lynching in these parts though, the ground is parched dry and hard like stone. You'd need to borrow an excavator to bury anything!

So, on that note, it's competition time, for your chance to win a full cooked English breakfast and a coffee or tea just post your favourite TV advert here. It could be your fave for humour, artistic presentation, or music, winner will be chosen depending on the biggest bribe lol.
Here's mine, advert for a chocolate manufacturer, it has nothing to do with chocolate, I just think as a piece of film it works...well not for advertising because I still prefer Galaxy to Dairy milk chocolate...

...oh, and pitchforks and flaming torches are going half price at the corner store, Manish and Krish who own the place are from India so they see a niche market in current times to make some extra sales.

a reply to: oldcarpy I loved the 'Smash' adverts as a kid! Here's another one...
...I see the stuff on sale these days, who even buys it???
Horrible #e useful only for stored food supplies in an emergency, reminds me of being a skint family in the 80's lol, I mash my own spuds with butter and milk...that devil's powder really is for emergencies only...maybe festivals and camping but you know.
Maybe the Banter Cafe should have a dish of the day with Smash, tinned peas, and tinned reformed ham...we'll call it survival food night, fancy dress costume competition of tinfoil hats and cammo gear, waterproof matches first prize lol
