Britians Legal System - The law is still an Ass

I am an MP and a pretty important one at that and that bobby had the nerve to give me grief.

Well I said to him you are a pleb I mean how dare these lower class police question me. I am from the elite class so there!! No it was not a Boris bike it was my very own bike.

Am I arrested? No. Am I thrown in the stocks? No. Made to brush the street? No. Fined? No Lost my job? No. Should I have any of these punishment? No. Told to apology and a day standing guard on a gate doing that policeman's job  is what I would have ordered. Then a history lesson on what happened in the French Revolution due to a class system.

Update - The Chief whip has now resigned

I am young and showing off on fb to look big with my friends. I write some pretty awful things. Am I arrested? Yes. Do I go to prison Yes. Will it affect my job prospects Yes for the rest of my life. Is it expensive to keep me in prison? Yes.

Should I have gone to prison No. There are other punishments like brushing the streets, a fine, a caution, a warning, or no action at all.

I wore a horrible tee-shirt that was offensive and hurtful. Should I go to prison? No. The people in the area really wanted some action though? People may want action but they may also want a lynching but the law is above  emotion (really?) it should be. Again plenty of other options without resorting to a prison sentence.

I hit my girlfriend and was controlling and abusive to her. Did I go to jail? No. I got to brush the street but then hitting someone is not as important as words on fb or a tee-shirt is it! I mean its only some bird.  (link) to womens aid

Makes no sense does it? fb and tee-shirts words = prison

Abusing a woman = community service

Be fair dear be fair

I am a young marine and I filmed a bad decision on my mobile. I am in a war situation and someone is killed. A year later five of us are charged with murder. Is this right?  Yes unfortunately it is although we don`t wish them to be found guilty. Campaign `Free the 5` is gaining strength of fb.

Halloween have a `Crackle` - Pumpkins

take one pumpkin


Flesh Eating Pumpkin

Carving the pumpkin was the hardest part of this so I did get a little help. The skeleton came from £1 shop and you get two skeletons in the pack.  Spiders and white hair also in packet from £1 shop.  The skeletons insides are those sweet laces you can buy for about 50p.  The pumpkin was £1.50 and has a tea light inside.  Black material is from a witches cloak costume I already have and the pumpkin is resting on a vase for the photo.

Looking spooky

This is the same pumpkin photographed from a different angle and minus the skeleton.  I have moved the white hair around and placed the spiders to look like they are coming out of the pumpkins head.  I think this one looks quite spooky.

Angry Pumpkin

I wanted this one to look like he had just knocked everything off the table as he swung his cape around.  I should have painted his face to make him look like the Phantom of the Opera that would have looked much better. 

Witchy Pumpkin

One that won`t scare the kids to much but again I should have used some face paint to liven the face up a bit.

Just for fun

I got lots of ideas from pinterest including a similar idea for a very happy flasher. He is made from a butternut squash, a pomegranate, some well placed cherry tomatoes and a little sage. All very organic ha ha. This one will scare the kids but may give the grown ups a laugh.


Ha Ha

This photo is my entry into a twitter competition for scary pumpkins it might give them a ` crackle`.

Now if only I had worn a witches outfit but then with my hair and gob I probably don`t need it. `crackle` `crackle`

I intend to take a few different photos over the weekend outdoors so will add them to this post in a few days. Happy pumpkin carving. London is going slightly crazy this year with `zombies` walking around the city and lots of Halloween themed events about. 

Enjoy the fun
