Forget Sharia Law, Polish law is in force in Wessx.

'Is Polish law operating in Yeovil?': Fury as Polish scrap metal thief caught red-handed is NOT prosecuted because 'he didn¿t realise it was a crime' | Mail Online

Polish man drives to a factory (which makes metal doors) and lifts the cut offs out of the skip. The scrap is worth up to £350 a skip (hence all the metal robberies (ie war memorials) recently), but apparently it isn't a crime in Poland, the culprit denies he knew it was wrong so the Police can't prove 'intent' to commit crime... culprit let off.

Bonkers.

What happened to the "ignorance is no defence" laws? If it was me doing what Polski was doing, my feet wouldn`t touch. One law for us, and a completely different set of "get out of jail" laws for our parasites. Isn`t it wonderful to be British?

I'd be interested to know if someone in Yeovil nick has phoned up their Polish counterparts and enquired as to the veracity of the claim by the Polack scrap pilferer.

Awaiting no end of 'well it isn't an offence in [insert country of origin here]' defences by various chancers in the UK.

It is up to the UK police to investigate and lay evidence before the DPP, and then it is up to the Court to decide whether the person understood that they were in the process or had committed an offence. Short shrift in Ostrava by the Police or the Courts, not sure the Polish Courts or Police would feel different.

In Ostrava, he would be looking at a kicking a nicking and a short time before a District Judge. Time would be coming to him.

i wonder if the same goes for benefit entitlement - could we claim its not what you'd get in your country so you don't qualify for it over here?

So where does this leave 'honour killings'?

Blimey if ignorance of the law was a valid defence there should be some very worried wives & busy undertakers out there.

It would have been platinum plated carbon fibre with diamonds as rivots, mainly from the wildcat.
You'd think so due to the cost....in reality, the rivets are made from Prit-Stick. They must be because the aircraft cant fly in the rain....in fact, at present, it cant fly at all due to being grounded. Thanks Westlands ;)

Workman blaming his tools.., running now for bunker...
Well, if this particular workman was actually given a tool for the job, fair do's....

I'll have to just wait until AW sort out the weight issue, the leaking issue and the umpteenth other issues you'd expect a Helicopter manufacturer to have grasped as a basic! Until then, we have a couple of £26 million door stops parked in the hangar ;-)

Lynx always leaked.

Rainwater, engine oil, gearbox oil, hyd fluid, Herfy.

It's when it stops leaking that you know it is time for a top-up.

I grant you that after all this time Westlands ought to know a thing or two about bungs..............

Lynx leaking was sort of acceptable because it was mainly clockwork. When you get a waterfall feature in the cockpit that engulfs the entire overhead console, centre console and all the avionics therein, it is of some concern. Add to that the nose avionics bay acting like a fish tank (where the one Tactical Processor is located) and it doesnt give you a warm fuzzy feeling that AW understand the concept of 'Marinised'......
