Topic Should there be a maximum age at which a person can be put on trial?
Posted 07 Dec 2016 13:49



Jimmy Savile was never convicted for his crimes, either during his life or after. Due to his death, he never will be convicted. From what I understand, there has obviously been an investigation into Jimmy Savile (and then a more broad investigation, which was code names 'yewtree'), but no conviction of guilt.

A similar investigation would take place before taking anyone to court for any reason, and they would only then take someone to court if they believed there would be a 'reasonable chance of conviction' (or something like that, anyway) based on the investigation.

What the report essentially said was that there was enough evidence for there to be a trial, and even a list of the number of offences he would have been tried for, but no actual trial itself because Jimmy Savile couldn't have defended himself.

The same reason why Jimmy Savile couldn't get convicted is the same with Lord Janner. Even though he was alive, his mental condition was so bad that he would never have been able to have defended himself.

It's a tough one, because simply being accused of doing something awful isn't the same as doing something awful (look at what happened to Sir Cliff Richard), hence it being written in law that anyone has the right to face their accused and to defend themselves in a court of law. However, in some instances (like with Jimmy Savile), it means that obviously guilty people get away with a criminal conviction.

But...the law is right to be written the way it is, even if it would then unfortunately allow some to escape conviction.

Good points well made. I appreciate your input.

There is something inherently tragic about this case I think. Firstly that a man at the end of his life is facing this infamous and ignominious process. Secondly that our country has to understand why child abuse is so prevalent and thirdly that society has been so unable to tackle the issue to the point that victims have hitherto been unable to tackle the perpetrators. This man should have been brought to book years ago.

That his victims only came forward when he was congratulated for being a centenarian seems a particularly specious reason for seeking justice in my opinion. Savile et al needs to make our society face up to child abuse and not bury its head in the sand. These people have a dangerously deviant sexuality. It should be a major issue that the government debates in my opinion.

Yes, Lord Janner did not stand trial because he was deemed to be incapable of understanding the charges and subsequent events surrounding his alleged crimes. Unless there are medical reasons that would impede a person getting a fair trial, such as dementia, then there should be no age limit. But let's remember that under law a person is deemed innocent until proven guilty. There has been quite a number of high profile cases over recent years where the press and public have acted as judge and jury only to find that the defendants have been found innocent.

I thought that in the Janner case, because there was strong evidence there was an option of 'a trial of the facts' but that was never pursued for some reason. I understand the reason his prosecution wasn't pursued, but doesn't the same thing apply? Jimmy Savile was effectively tried on the facts, albeit outside the courts, but Janner's alleged victims surely deserve the same amount of closure and justice as Savile's and Mr Clarke's? There should be consistency.

I also agree with you that people are effectively tried by the media, which means they're always tarnished even when they are innocent

Just to be clear. I wasn't actually advocating that he shouldn't be on trial. It is just such an extreme case I wondered if there was circumstances, which are obvious owing to his age that he might not be fit. I totally agree that his victims deserve justice.

Interestingly, an MP was allowed to get away with not having a trial recently because he had dementia. He has since passed away. There have also been different standards and cover ups where there have been MP.

Certainly not. If there were an age limit at which a person could be put on trail for crime, then once said persons reached that limit they could go out and commit all sorts of crime knowing full well they won't have to suffer the consequences of their crimes.
.

This is a good point!

I was shocked when I saw this. Maybe a bit controversial but wondered what others thought.

Anyway, this guy is 101 and he's in court for historic child abuse. One hundred and one! Isn't being accused of that, at his age punishment enough?! Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying any crime, particularly child abuse should ever be excused, but 101 years old? To put it into context, historic child abuse is like at epidemic proportions in the UK. Honestly, that's not an exaggeration. There was the Catholic priests, then a whole string of celebrities, and now it's football coaches. There's been hundreds of victims come forward in the last few days alone.

If a relative of mine was charged with that, heaven forfend, the shame alone would be terrible. I'm just not sure what purpose it serves to prosecute someone that old.

farmer takes the pig & chickens across first

A farmer has a fox, 10 chickens, a bag of turnips, a sack of grain and a pet pig. He needs to cross a river to get the chickens and the grain to market. He has a boat.

The thing is, the boat will only hold the farmer and two other things. He can't take the fox and the pig, cos then the chickens will eat the grain. He can't take the fox and the grain cos the pig will eat the turnips.

How does the farmer get everything to the other side, in order to sell his stuff at market?

Topic If aliens came to our planet...
Posted 15 Nov 2016 11:06

There is other life out there; I don't have any doubt! How is is possible that we are the only planet with life ? It's not, that's how.


It's possible if the conditions that are required for life outweigh the assumption that life exists given the postulated number of planets in the galaxy/universe.


This is a dichotomy that is likely to never be resolved. The space between planets is so unimaginably vast that even an advanced technology is unlikely to be able to overcome the distances involved. Life is likely to be either very common or extremely rare. If life were common, we really should have discovered something microbial, somewhere in the solar system outside of the Earth by now. A little squiggly thing or a mould, or some bacteria...just something! We haven't. If we're the only life in the solar system, then maybe we have to look to our nearest solar system - Alpha Centauri. Well maybe we could go and look there. Trouble is, even at the fastest speed that humans have travelled, it would take us one hundred and twenty four thousand years to get there!
Most stars are many times more distant than this. Hold this thought.

To assume that there is life that can somehow overcome these distances, is about the same logical jump as to assume that somewhere in Africa, Chimpanzees have invented a kettle. Also, as for the super duper advanced and common aliens... where are they?

On the other hand, let's assume that life is extremely rare...

Sorry, it's not happening.

We're alone

Topic Trump the Traitor - Stepping Back on Repealing Obamacare
Posted 12 Nov 2016 10:28



I agree with you, I think our health care system is brilliant.

I am curious as to why you say it's broken by obesity and alcohol tho? I am no expert but I believe if these 2 are a factor in problems with a persons health and the person is unwilling to cut back on either food or alcohol then the NHS does not go out of its way to spend its funds on treatment for that person. I believe they have to go private which isn't ideal because its expensive and i believe once you have been treated for something it then gets scrapped from your available treatment list and you're sent back to the NHS.

By way of example, a person overweight rarely if at all qualifies for a gastric band, they have to go private and pay for it themselves. Likewise, an alcoholic is not going to be a priority patient for the NHS as it's self-inflicted.

I am not disagreeing with you, I am curious because that was my understanding of how the NHS works and I agree with it if these people are not willing to help themselves then why should the NHS when they can use their money to help people who deserve to be helped.

Just to say, my Mum is a doc, so she tells me a lot of facts about medical matters and she's an uber geek with stuff, so I'm not just making it up lol.

So, with obesity, it's the way it affects people's health rather than just direct treatment for being overweight. Obesity is crippling the NHS and that's not an exaggeration. Being very overweight effects the respiratory system, contributes to heart disease and is a factor in some cancers.

The alcohol problem is more to do with A & E. When my Mum was working as a doc in A & E, she said that most people of an evening who came in, were there for some sort of alcohol related incident. Like well over half!!! They were either suffering from alcoholic poisoning, had fallen over through being drunk and hurting themselves or had got into an altercation and had been injured that way.

Honestly the statistics are truly shocking!

Topic Why Democrats Lost the Presidency
Posted 12 Nov 2016 04:14

Democrats lost for two reasons:

1. because Trump says what a lot of people think in private and has an organic manner that a lot of people identify with.

I think it's less about policy and more about the presentation of ideas. There's no way that Donald Trump was going to make all the Muslims stay out of the USA or make the Mexicans build the Great Wall of the USA. But the fact that he said it, made a connection with a lot of folk, who embrace fears of immigration.

His anecdotes about women while revolting, is what guys say in locker rooms etc. We all know that. It's just not what politicians are meant to say, and I think the populace took that for what it was.

2. Hilary Clinton was too much old school politics of the elite. Also she was damaged by allegations of the dodgy emails. Even though she was absolved of guilt, it was too late. People would think 'no smoke without fire!'

I don't know about the USA but The National Health Service in the UK is a great system. You pay in something each month and also pay for your optical care and dentist and then when you need medical care it's there - free at the point of service.

As I say a great system, except in the UK it's broken; broken by obesity and alcohol.

Just saying

Over 50% of voters voted out, to go against that vote would be effing crazy. There would be chaos and riots all over the country without a doubt.

No strictly true. Only 72% actually voted. Of those that voted 52% voted out, so only 37% of voters voted to leave the EU.

Topic Is the poppy a political symbol?
Posted 10 Nov 2016 12:51

So this is the thing.

Sunday is Armistice Day when the British and some other countries commemorate those fallen in conflicts since the First World War. The red poppy has become a symbol of the blood that was shed by all the soldiers, particularly in the two world wars but for more recent battles, too. Because this year, there's a soccer match between England and Scotland, the teams have decided to wear poppy emblems embroidered on their sleeves. Nothing wrong with that - all respectful and appropriate you'd think.

The thing is, FIFA who are the governing body of world soccer say the poppy is a political symbol and therefor inappropriate. They have threatened the English and Scottish Soccer teams with fines and/or deducted points.

There's been a right rumpus about it over here.

So is the poppy a political symbol or have FIFA got their knickers in a twist for no good reason?
