Outside a school in Mackworth they have artificial children standing by the crossing...

...that's what I thought, too :roll:

Who ever thought this might happen.?


"Transgender inmate admits Wakefield jail sex offences"


Karen White has admitted four counts of sexual touching at New Hall Prison, Wakefield

A transgender prisoner has admitted sexually assaulting inmates at a women's jail.

Karen White, 51, who was born male but now identifies as a woman, has pleaded guilty to two counts of sexual touching at New Hall Prison, Wakefield.

The offences took place between September and November last year. She has since been moved to a male prison.

Details emerged when White appeared at Leeds Crown Court to admit to a rape committed before she was jailed.

She previously admitted two further rape charges, which also happened outside prison.

SHE???

Seems to be copied from America.

They get the female pronoun simply because they have declared themselves this. Doesn't matter if they are actually male, without any transformation at all.

Article in Daily Mail that makes it clearer. Also refers to him throughout as "she". It is just a bloke in a dress and a wig.
Mentally ill people are now running our judiciary and prisons system and governing us.
How hard can it be not to realise that sending a male sex offender to a female prison will end in trouble? :roll: :roll: :roll:
Instead they insist everyone plays the game of continuing the pretense by calling him "she".

Come, sweet asteroid of death. The time is now.

I very nearly said "for f...s sake" over the phone to the receptionist at my local Doctors surgery this morning when she told me the next available appointment to see a Doctor would be October 10th.! :shock: It seems that unless it is an emergency you can take it or leave it. In my case I was requesting our favourite examination. All I can hope for is that I get the all clear and the delay won't allow the problem to worsen to the point of no return. :cry:

My own surgery operates on a similar basis to yours so I suggest you take the advice which came straight from my own GP when I discussed a similar circumstance with him one day; If you have the slightest concern that a delay would be potentially seriously harmful to your health then you call back and request an emergency appointment.

Quote:
A SENIOR police officer who used the phrase “whiter than white” during a briefing could be sacked for alleged racism. The Metropolitan Police detective superintendent, who denies any wrongdoing, has been placed on restrictive duties.

He allegedly made the remarks during a briefing to colleagues about maintaining the highest standards.

Scotland Yard received a complaint about the comment and it was referred to the watchdog, the Independent Office for Police Conduct (IOPC).

The detective could now face an internal investigation for gross misconduct.


WTF?!

Quote:
A police source said: “.. it may have been a poor use of language, but this is not what the misconduct process is for. "


It's not a poor use of language at all. It is perfectly reasonable in its meaning -

whiter than white in British
a.
extremely clean and white
b. informal
very pure, honest, and moral


I remember Tony Blair using the phrase, prior to the 1997 election, to describe how he planned his government would operate.


What are these lunatics on about?

You would think someone might just say "Hang on, this is a normal expression ,nothing racist about it , and we are going to look really silly" Bloody hell, what miniscule level of brain power are we dealing with here?

Morons, pure and simple. It will probably please Dick that he faces a real problem for doing nothing except use a turn of phrase.

I'm afraid it is a poor choice of words - he should have said 'we must look very OMO today'.

OMO, as everyone here knows, was a washing powder, that kept white's looking whiter.................oops.

Whites were whiter but colours were brighter, therefore that's a can of worms best not opened.
