Interim findings by the Lammy inquiry last year found that male BAME defendants are 52% more likely to plead not guilty in crown courts than white defendants in similar cases.


#534

How many do not how many are more likely


#535

So I copy and pasted this post into google and this came up

If you’ve got a minute can someone other than Oliver read this and explain how it supports his stance and not mine?


#536

I don’t really have a stance, other than the outcome of the Lavinia sentencing isn’t racially motivated.

to reiterate my stance: racism exists, but not every legal outcome is a reflection of or in some way related to race.


#538

no use deleting it.

Your done, and you’d block me if you could. You sure are stroppy for a mature home owner.


#539

The post I was replying too said “I don’t really have a stance”. And nothing more

Once I posted it the rest of your post had appeared so I deleted my post

But I am definately done now


#540

So why are you getting upset?


#541

Because your post before it was fully posted read as if you were taking the piss again, once I saw the whole thing I decided I had over reacted


#542

You two really need to get a room together already


#543

Was wondering who would be the lame-o to break out the “get a room together”, line :grin:


#544

:grimacing:


#545

Who on earth comes up with these names.


#546

Funny thing about hurricane names apparently more people die due to hurricanes with female names than male because because less people evacuate for hunnricanes that have female names, funny shit huh?!

Also they reuse the names until someone dies due to it then that hurricane name is never used again


#547

Yeah the WMO (World Meteorological Organization) is in charge. I was disappointed to learn there are only 6 lists of names then they start again. There is no Jade on any of the lists so far, but you never know – If hurricane Joyce is deadly next year, I’m a shoe-in :smirk:


#548

Is there a hurricane Jay? I bet he’d fucking smash shit up


#549


#550

Lol the premier league will surely do something about this
Edit; They went for the lion one


#551

Weird that they’d choose an African native for its logo…

But yep, looks like the Premier League might have something to say


#552

They’ll just make the lion face the other way :speak_no_evil:


#553

Ukip lion looks like its gawping. Like most of their followers.
