I will never, ever, ever, understand people who would rather grind cars together than be literally one unsubstantial car behind when they were behind in the first place.

These people genuinely irk me more than they should, I will never understand it. They should have their licences revoked.

Mostly because it's deemed to look better, or sometimes to fit a giant exposed intercooler, JDM drift style. I would agree it looks nice on many cars, it looks very clean.

You'll get a ticket eventually for not having a front plate though, you're not even supposed to stick in on your dashboard like many do. There's a motorised James bond type plate that folds up into the intake hole, but fuck knows what a copper would do if he caught you doing that on the road.

Police don't have the time, honestly.

I accidentally (no, honest guv) drove without tax for about two months. I was in front of and behind countless cop cars in that time, frequently on ANPR stretches of motorway, etc, and not once did I hear anything about it from them. Months later I got stopped because they thought I was drunk driving (I wasn't) and I mentioned that to the copper, and he said "yeah we're basically told not to bother with tax and insurance stuff unless it's a proper quiet day, and it almost never is"

"A policeman stopped me the other day. So I decided I should get involved in gang violence"

Makes sense.

I get the self fulfilling prophecy of if you treat someone like an outsider they become an outsider but I think you might have confused the chicken with the egg. Chances are the black people in gangs are following in the footsteps of their role models or their peers. I met a lot of black kids growing up that seemed irrationally angry with the world and in retrospective blame their home lives over society at large.

This kind of profiling sucks on a personal level and the police in that video are way out of line. But we must accept the reality not the utopia when dealing with crime we do it on a practical level. How it is not what it ought to be.

It's a cultural thing. There's more of a macho culture amongst black people and the lack of father figures can exacerbate the issue.

They're not a significant presence in the UK, but they are major players in organised crime in Ireland. They have a reputation for being more calculating and brutal than local gangsters - they're heavily involved in human trafficking, slavery and extortion. They usually keep a low profile, but occasionally have massive knife fights in broad daylight.

Fun fact: most "triads" in London are just Filipino kids paid pennies on the pound to do menial drugs running tasks after school. The beef they create between themselves and between groups from other schools is their own doing.

Now, your actual proper Triad drug dealer is an exceptionally polite well spoken man from Hong Kong who well turn up to your front door with an ornately wrapped package of crystal meth and a glass pipe for £200 / gram + "taxi".


As for human trafficking well that's a bit rich for my blood but I do know that a major client base for the crystal meth trade are Thai hookers, so there is that.

The politically motivated actions of the IRA were the least offensive things they did. I'd argue that nailbombs are fairly brutal, but as ARE STEW says, they were gentlemen about it. Kneecapping as a punishment for anything from selling drugs to walking about the wrong bit of town to having a sister who shagged the wrong bloke is fairly bad too. I'd rather be shot in the head than the kneecap, genuinely. They were never going to beat out Isis for sheer mad violence, but they managed to control a population with a campaign of palpable fear, which I think was not bad going for a relatively disorganised paramilitary.

In present day these boys all went on to form their own gangs. Some of them still say they're provos, but all they're really doing is fighing other gangs for drug territory. There's a legitimate gang war going on in Dublin at the moment, and hundreds have been killed. It's all between the gangs though so maybe that doesn't count.

>punishment for anything from selling drugs
... or at least doing so in competition with them. For a time in the early 80s most of the weed, coke and horse coming into the British Isles was passing through Shannon.

The 'Ra did some fairly horrific things, but even with funeral shootings or bus massacres, nothing quite compares to the proxy bombings. What do you do if you want to drop off a car bomb but can't get in to park? Why, you tie some poor fucker to the seat and strap their hands to the wheel and get them to deliver it for you, of course.

Oh dear. Where to start...

They weren't controlling a population with "a campaign of palpable fear". The reality is that they had support and sympathy from the communities they operated out of. Insurgent groups which don't tend not to last.

As for "relatively disorganised", the British Army themselves called the provos:

>"a professional, dedicated, highly skilled and resilient force", while loyalist paramilitaries and other republican groups are described as "little more than a collection of gangsters".


The idea that anything like a significant portion of former PIRA volunteers are active in organised crime is false. The reason that PIRA went out with a bank robbery was to provide former volunteers with a pension, precisely so as to avoid them getting involved in criminality.

There is a gang "war" (more a feud, really, this isn't Baltimore) going on in Dublin at the moment, but neither of the two main gangs have anything to do with republicanism, past or present, and the death toll is far from "hundreds" (it's about 20 last I heard).

Calling them 'gentlemen terrorists' is unfair to the people they've harmed and killed. For every fuck-off city centre wrecking bomb they phoned in to warn about there were proper awful acts they performed.
It's a concept that needs to die.

And fwiw I think the Loyalist groups were cunts too. The whole Northern Irish situation was such a barrel of shit.

Loyalist paramilitaries were extra cunts in my opinion (and I'm from a unionist family), nothing more than a collection of violent goons.
While there were very legitimate concerns about the Irish state until the past few decades, the shambles that it was doesn't really compare to oppressive policies enacted in the north after partition. I'd like to think that had people got past their prejudices and allowed Catholics to properly integrate into NI in the first place that a lot of the subsequent mess would've found nothing to spark it, but of course prejudice is too much of a powerful political tool for that to have ever happened.

I'm not really an IRA sympathiser, but they had something to fight for initially.

These days though the constant whinging from Sinn Fein and trendy republican persecution complex memes are mostly a load of wank. But whinging is the primary political driver on all sides of NI politics so it's not going to end any time soon.

I think someone has been in my car last night, judging by the glovebox being open and things from there and the compartment next to the gearbox being on the floor. I suppose it was inevitable, having a car that tucks in the wing mirrors when it is locked and a scatterbrained girlfriend who doesn't always remember to lock the car. At least there was nothing for them worth pinching.

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE. Use the whole fucking length of the slip road.

Whether the traffic is at a standstill or moving at 70mph, the slip road is there to give you time to filter in without stopping and match the speed of the traffic, or if you absolutely have to stop when there's no space, move to the end of the slip road to make space for the cars behind you to queue (and get off the fucking roundabout too)

Had to use my horn twice in two days.
First was a campervan driver who pulling away mugging like he was looking in the side mirror but due to how he was parked all that would have shown them was the Gregs behind him - not me coming down the road he was pulling in to.
Second was someone who was driving down the road and then just slowed down to a complete stop. No hazard lights, no signs of looking to pull over - just stopped in the middle of the road with no apparent idea someone was behind them.
