    Disagree. The police were standing around not doing much, like a headless dog, waiting to receive an order to their job. They don't want to be under investigation for using "excessive" force on people who are up to no good.
    As much as I don't like Cameron, this rioting business has shown me that he actually has some bollocks and can get shit done.

    what did Cameron actually do then, i didn't see him on the streets stopping rioters?

    i just saw him talking about things that didn't make any difference, and saying things that would of been true about 48 hours before he said them, and had already been said by just about every other politician.

    It could be a trap to make people think that its over.

    we could be in the 'eye of the storm' as they say. but who knows.

    I lol'd hard when the police asked Blackberry to turn their messenger service off temporarily and they straight out said no. Blackberry can be taken to court for obstructing the law/justice.

    though its easy to shut them down, if a temporary C&D order or injunction was filed.

    I wouldnt be suprised if the riots were to continue.

    twitter and facebook are much more important things

    Gave the order to deploy some 16,000 officers into london, told the courts to stay open 24/7 to clear back log, pretty much told every single rioter that when they are identified they are fucked.

    Police can do 1 and 3 but not 2. Guess his only claim to fame is to make lawyers and judges work harder.

    Anyway, just whacked up a FS thread of games. Old games mind, but all for the cost of shipping (plus a little bit hehe)

    what? you have dishonoured me with your impertinent system specifications

    Why is your system so similar to mine?

    it's like you've got a load of different parts that somehow add up to a very similar level of perfomance :wtf:

    My config's very popluar (CPU/mobo/PSU) but most people with my board have got a 1090t.

    Oh yea I forgot to change my graphics card :laugh: Doi me! I'm on a Twin Frozr II GTX470 now.

    The RAID array helps too; when I want a bit of fun I install a game on there and it makes things like loading times extremely quick.
    RAID's a nice cheap performance gain if you can get drives cheap. But if you're looking at buying 2 brand new drives just for RAID, you might aswell just pay the extra £20 for an SSD.

    What a c*nt man! Yea 45 days I think is the limit. Hopefully PP should side with you as long as you have loadsa proof saying when it was bought, and him confirming receipt of it etc. If he left you feedback just after he bought it (when it was working), copy and paste the feedback he left you into the PP dispute.

    Did he leave you a positive feedback when he first got it? Would be nice if he did.

    My U2UFO just turned up, the thing's massive! I thought the Raven 2 was big!

    No he didnt, and he cannot, he has no operational control over the Police, in London it's slightly unique though, only the Commissioner of the Met can do that, or in the case of the City of London Police.... the Mayor can do it also.

    Reasons are simple really, the police have to be independant of government otherwise they cannot investigate them for fraudulently claiming expenses :laugh:
