::EDIT::

unfortunately it wasnt mine. A friend bought it and asked for it to be put in for him. £600 he paid. About double the estimated MSRP but you gotta get in where you can otherwise someone else will

It's a bizarre thing that Glasgow has a hard image yet the policing strategy is so very different. Apparently (not in source quoted), the Met ofiicers and other English forces were briefed on 'soft' policing before being deployed for COP26. The odd thing is, it works up here; using a non-confrontational approach (no batons or riot shields) tends to keep protestors very much in line with the ideology of 'peaceful' protest. Anyone trained in anger-management or confict resolution would understand the benefit of the 'soft' touch approach. Oddly enough, if you 'confront' agitated protestors with the perception of violence, it's not really a surprise they become violent.

Ah... Glasgow. Full of contradictions.

That isn't unique to Scotland. If a police force treats the public like responsible civilized citizens, they generally behave in such a way because they are not put on the defensive. But if police come ready for trouble and treat people like they're going to generate trouble, that's often what they get. This dynamic has been seen and studied all over the world.

I haven't been home in a few years now so I have no idea what the police force is like, here in Thailand on the other hand the police have impressive numbers and are split into different categories (tourist police generally tend be the scary ones into entrapment and the like). Although they armed to the teeth here they are generally pretty relaxed.
Back in the UK though I recently saw a close friend of mine in the news as he threated a local officer with a firearm which doesn't sound his style so I guess their conflict Resolution is still as confrontational as I remember.

Not that I would be buying stuff but if I was I would hold off until January with these tactics.

I bought a moka pot in the early black friday deals... So i dont care about the rest. I mean a 2TB SSD and 27" 1440p 2000hz monitor would be great but I have coffee so everything is fine.

I know you like rap, but why would you count that?

I'll go along with this though. London Beat, Jesus Jones, et-al.. Oh yeah..

Not forgetting Oasis and the Verve and the Prodigy all great

Just got the first episode of the Beatles get back to watch. it's really interesting, from jan 1969, 2 mths before i was born, mostly unseen footage of them atm rehearsing etc for a live show. Yoko is weird, just sits there not saying nothing really. It's worth a look if you like the Beatles.

It's on Disney+ but i just found it on the internet.
