To be honest though do you not reckon there'd be a load over here that'd be the same if Johnson said the same in a foreign country.

Those from the left who'd just be quite happy for him to have gone away and those on the right outraged that he's not called wherever he is a backward shithole and he can't wait to get back to good ol' Blighty.

What an amazing coincidence that the two phones both lost any record of the calls and messages.
Details of calls and texts from Home Secretary Priti Patel to a Chief Constable and an Assistant Chief Constable during a blockade of a Murdoch-owned newspaper printing works by Extinction Rebellion (XR) protestors have been deleted, a judge was told today.

The judge was told that Mr Hall’s phone had been updated since the night and all messages and records have been deleted. Assistant Chief Constable Matt Nicholls’ text messages had also been deleted in an “IT glitch”.

Interesting.

I guess it would negate the move to bring the voting age down to sixteen

I've no particularly strong feelings around this but it has been law for eons.
Does it take a hammer to crack a nut.

The overlap of this policy is pretty Draconian I think to settle what is a cultural issue for various communities?

I think it’s nuts you’re allowed to marry at 16 TBH. Always have.

I simply fail to believe this is possible in any government IT department I’ve come across.
I've worked in quite a few of 'em. Depends on how they are set up. Most of what I came across make a record of everything from a central location and not from the phone. It's laughable what they are saying. Everything is traceable.

Even mobile phones have SIP or VoIP connections to the same landlines when not in the office. One number does all for any one desk.

This will negate the 'child born out of wedlock' slur forever won't it?
Age of consent is 16 so if a girl legally has sex, aged 16/17, and conceives, she cannot marry until 18. Thus rendering the child 'illegitimate'.
Have they thought this through or does none of it matter any more?

I know this is just one of many cases, and I don't give a stuff whether he has autism, mental depression or PTSD, or whether he did or did not commit his crimes; but what civilised country seeks to deport someone who has been brought up in this country from such young age? Disgraceful.

Doesn’t matter anymore. My mum had me at 16 and ‘out of wedlock’ and I’ve never even thought about it until now and it’s never been mentioned. My own son came to mine and his mums wedding. In fact I’m the only person to get married the whole mums side of the family thinking about it. And I’m getting divorced this year so that went well.

Some communities it does though. I’ve been to a wedding where the bride had to hide that she was 3 months pregnant. Bigger issue for me was waiting for 3 hours for her to turn up and there was no bar.

There's got to be more to it surely? 5 years inside for pinching your mates phone doesn't seem likely given you struggle to even get a crime ref number for a stolen phone let alone have it investigated and someone charged.
Osime Brown was jailed for stealing a friend’s mobile phone, a crime that he and others say he did not commit. He was sentenced to five years for robbery, attempted robbery and perverting the course of justice.

As I said I don't care how his supporters have dressed this up, as they would. It's not the point.

It would seem that the effect of Cummings and sausages has given the greens a small fillip.

Labour remain irrelevant.

Clearly I’ve got the wrong group of lads as mates. None of them are related to the Queen or randomly speak Latin.

Probably not irrelevant to the 1 in 3 people wanting to vote for them. Though sure, nothing like the mighty Greens

Sorry, should have said "increasingly irrelevant"

Presume the other person on the conversation is Cummings. Obviously we're only seeing what he wants us to see but this is at all representative it doesn't give the impression of the PM being in control of things, more just going along with what he's told.

Should this type of thing be discussed on WhatsApp, is their security up to the job?

So PPE was a disaster?

Despite him telling us it was a brilliant success?

Surely Johnson couldn't have been lying to us.
