    knife laws ! Dumb mps thinking it's going to stop drug dealers getting knives when they seemingly have no issues getting heroin, crack, meth, coke etc

    Like iPlayer asking if you have a license, always tempted to press no to see if it stops me but what if it remembers and shuts me out for good :(

    Had this disagreement with my dad he reads a rubbish read top and said it will stop them buying knives. I asked him hat he had in his kitchen, two knife blocks was the answer....

    I went to tk max the other day and got a knife for work no I’d check, granted I’m 34 but regularly get Id’d for booze in the supermarket. I also ordered a boning and filleting knife from a top catering company last week and they didn’t ask for age verification or even a signature. My filleting knife is so sharp it cut my boss who only brushed it with his palm

    It wouldn't surprise me if next they will require proof of age to buy welding rods; because they are pointed and could be used as a weapon. :vsad:

    All stuff like this does is make it harder to get for people who have a legitimate use for whatever it is they're trying to ban this week. The crims will still have no problem getting hold of and using anything that is banned or put on restrictive sale.

    So can a pencil. I pointed [see what I did there :ashamed:] that out at one of those stupid brain-storming sessions during a Bank training course back in the day, when they asked us to see how many uses we could come up with for said writing stick.

    Oddly enough, I must have been the only homicidal psychopath there as no-one else spotted that potential......:D

  16. Wait 'til you have to do "robust age verification" to watch naughty videos online. It sounds like a wonderful opportunity for robbery, fraud and blackmail.

    Laws only stop homest people, crimonals dont care.... apparently this is to complex for a politician to understand

    Watched a program a while back and they showed a table full of weapons that prisoners had made up because they couldn't get hold of knives, they just stabbed people with sharpened toothbrushes instead. Where there's a will there's a way.
