You'll need to reset your DIP switches.

caveat: I haven't been considered a 'techie' since the late 1980's.
Have you tried turning it off then on again?

It's Sadiq Khan's fault. Don't you know he gets the blame for everything that happens in Engerland?

i'm no fan of Khan - he's useless on most fronts but I think the fact that funding for police (from Central Govt and Local authorities) has fallen by 20% and police numbers by 20,000 might have something to do with it and stop and search drop has coincided with the increase - and you need coppers in numbers t do that.

In sort, all of them! Your link has allocation for one year 2019 - hurrah! what about the gradual decrease over the last decade? National Audi Office report (linked below)
"Figure 3
Funding reductions by police force, 2010-11 to 2018-19"


and there is no indication how the Police Funding Formula changes will affect allocation in future years.
The Police Funding Formula divides up how much money each police force receives from the overall central government funds. It takes into account a number of factors to assess demand in each area.
Earlier this year, the Home Office and police partners engaged on potential changes to the police funding formula. However, in the context of changing demand, the Minister for Policing and the Fire Service Nick Hurd has said that providing funding certainty over the next two years to enable the police to plan in an efficient way is his priority.
Therefore, proposed changes to the funding formula will be revisited at the next Spending Review."
Funding to police forces - which comes from central government and council tax - fell by 19% in real terms between 2010-11 and 2018-19, according to the National Audit Office.

Officer numbers have fallen by around 20,000 since 2010.
https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-47558117
https://www.nao.org.uk/wp-content/uploa ... s-2018.pdf

What do you suggest that Khan does , other than spend the money he or the Police has been given (and not on useless water cannons or garden bridges like his predecessor) that will make any real difference to the stats?

I'm considering walking Hadrian's Wall (or part thereof) during an upcoming vacation, and was wondering if any older (or otherwise) members of the pit have recollection of this time period or part of the country.

Hadrians Wall lies entirely within England and has never been part of the Scotland/England border. More likely to be full of Geordies & Mackems. ;)

In other words, if they write funny, they can compete, they shouldn't need quotas.
Eg the Royale Family co written by the late Caroline Ahern

This point would be better made if we were certain how the individual in question identifies.

FYI, Grania Spingies, one of the original founders of Atheist Ireland and a regular presence in online atheism, especially at WEIT, died yesterday. Jerry Coyne and Michael Nugent write of her passing with sadness and eloquence:

Grania had in the past been a guest writer at B&W and TFA and elsewhere, but I see no other mentions of her death.

At least one of Galton and Simpson was female.

Otherwise Edward VIII would not have had to abdicate.

I always misread her name as 'Granule Sprinkles'. I only knew her through her writing, but it sounds like she was beloved by those who knew her personally. She also was a bona fide, hardworking, down-to-earth social justice activist, as opposed to the pretentiously 'woke', posturing, keyboard warriors.

I've defended Robinson a few times on here as essentially I think at times he's the only one who speaks up about very important issues that most politicians just won't touch with a ten foot pole but even I have to admit that the man does himself no favours at times.

That is true! And shame on me for forgetting. Well, take out the Young Ones and replace it with Blackadder. That's really all you need to disprove ITV's new policy.

:roll: :roll: :roll:
Monty Python: no women writers. Young Ones: no women writers. Goon Show: no women writers.

But, I mean, it's not like they were cultural touchstones and set a standard for British comedy for years to come. Clearly what they needed was someone like ... Brona C. Titley ... to add that much sought after diversity.
Er...The Young Ones had a woman co writer - Lise Mayer
That is true! And shame on me for forgetting. Well, take out the Young Ones and replace it with Blackadder. That's really all you need to disprove ITV's new policy.

What's the female equivalent of an Incel? Oh, right... a Feminist.

Only in the pre-shooting spree manifestos of Elliot Rodger-- or that Christchurch idiot-- do you see demands for women to be rounded-up into government sex-farms... to compensate for the Incels' shortcomings. Or feverdreams of sorting & segregating entire nations by race or sex or religion.

But actual feminists are constantly launching actual grandiose policies-- to re-shape the world according to their demented whims.

Converting a Tesla Model 3 into a Ute. Way cool.

TFA has become the new Pharyngula, and I just said so.

The Hordlings are all over me like a pack of mutant rabid zombie piranha.

The upspeak is killing me.

"One of the early decisions? we made was to salvage as much of the body as possible?" It's like a slightly more mechanically inclined Rebecca Watson.

I didn't notice upspeak. But she did say fuck a lot. And occasionally gosh.

And I think that she is a legit engineer, whereas Rebecca is an example of the Peter principle (with a very low bar).

I always wanted to turn a Coupe Deville into an El Camino.

Cool, but typical TV goofball fluff. How did they meld that Chevy rear window to the car?

Don't let those overalls fool you, that chick's lanky hawt.

This is what Rebecca Watson would be, had Watson an ounce of talent and wasn't a lazy, misanthropic sociopath with bad hygiene.

You're KiwiInOz. You didn't notice upspeak like a fish doesn't notice water. :lol:

Part of the same San Fran Bay leftist hipster bubble, she used to work for Tested with Adam Savage and Norm Chan, Beccy's chums up til she cheated on her ex Adam who also worked for Tested.
It's all very incestuous.
