The previous tenant was a cunt and never changed his address, so all his fines, and criminal activities means that all these weird enforcement types keep rushing to my mum's house. She has been renting the place for the past year, and she isn't very able, so it takes her a while to come downstairs.

So far, a new "enforcement" chap comes around once or twice a month. They take down her details and fuck off. This almost always happens at 7 AM - even on a Sunday. So I caught one of them while I was staying with my mum and gave him a piece of my mind. Apparently they are all these private companies acting on behalf of the court or whoever is after the previous tenant. I even told the police that the criminal doesn't live here any more. I told the court and everyone in between, but this bollocks harassment isn't stopping. Today one of them came around and stuck a letter through the door stating that they will forcibly enter next time around.

What am I meant to do about this? They are greatly stressing my mum and that is just not on. What if they smash down the door? What then? This is utter bollocks.

Maybe if everyone was allowed to bear arms this type of shit wouldn't be happening as often. Fucking cunts. Who else should I be telling that they should look elsewhere for their criminal? The fucking secret service? Absolute bollocks.

I understand the crack I just don't understand why no one sanity checked this shit before it reached this point.

It should be someones job to eyeball that shit, I realise it is a tedium but we are talking about an enforcement order here, at least one decision making person should be in the loop. If these things can get all the way through due process to bailiffs getting called out with no one questioning. How much bigger will the hole get when things get further automated. I had to go through all manner of automated switch board bollocks to get to the Accountant that helped, what happens one day when they decide that should be fully automated and my options are solely to pay immediately. The bailiff isn't going to listen to my plight because he sees a bill of 1.3k not 27p. End to end automation is not something that should be implemented by anyone not clairvoyant enough to predict every foreseeable future event, that way lies dystopia.

I worked in council tax recovery about 7 years ago. It was outsourced to a division of Bertelsmann, who have their fingers in a few pies like owning Penguin Random House and the BMG record label, but we still worked in the council offices and had the same employment rights and access to the local government pension scheme through TUPE.

Your local authority must be really inept. Bailiffs should be the very last resort. They should have at least contacted you try and arrange a repayment schedule or sent an attachment of earnings order to your employer and even then requests to the team who dealt with the bailiffs would need a fair bit of justification. I usually dealt with people after it had been to court but there was a fair bit of discretion in the role.

Usually people are given at least three strikes before they'd be issued with a court summons; even if they lose the right to pay monthly in arrears an alternative arrangement can be agreed. A fair few people would turn out to court and they'd have the opportunity to contest it in the court room but I can't recall any doing it when I was there, they'd usually just have a quick rant with you beforehand. We'd give the list to the courts, sit there in silence whilst in session and then they'd approve it. I think it cost about £3 per application but we'd add about £90 to the bill for it.

Where I worked there was a small number of people with balances of a few pence from previous tax years but they were never chased up because it was never viable but they'd also never get added to the current year's bill for some reason even though it was a known issue. A lot of it is system generated and we'd be there when it came into the in-tray on Oracle or whatever and human input was needed.

When I worked there someone returned their council tax statement covered in human poo. The elderly mail room woman had to go home sick.

What have I gotta do to get off universal credit? Just started a new part time job in which the yearly salary is £10,000 and the last time I spoke to the dole they said I'll need to declare it to the service centre. Tried calling them from a mobile in which the call is charged and got nowhere, even checked in my local centre and they removed all the phones they used to have and the guard just had to apologise and say I'd have to try the number again that I've been ringing.

Been told I could easily just not turn up to my next interview and they would sign me off that way for not committing but I don't know what implications that holds for the future. The dole have been fairly lax on me throughout the year because I've appeared incensed to them and have largely been on zero hours work but this is my first properly salaried job in the year, I'd just like to now be able to do my own thing and not commit to further job hunting if I'm in something I can put my efforts into.

A few days after when facts emerge. The NRA response has been to campaign for a tightening on modifications that allow effective automatic firing.

>In Las Vegas, reports indicate that certain devices were used to modify the firearms involved. Despite the fact that the Obama administration approved the sale of bump fire stocks on at least two occasions, the National Rifle Association is calling on the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (BATFE) to immediately review whether these devices comply with federal law. The NRA believes that devices designed to allow semi-automatic rifles to function like fully-automatic rifles should be subject to additional regulations.

Certainly seems better thought out than offering your condolences and then immediately listing off hypotheticals.

No, they're doing no such thing. Read the statement again. They're looking for some detail that will let them engage their usual tactic of othering the shooter. If their response is to "campaign for" anything, it's the bit about concealed carry reciprocity, which appears to have been tacked on the end for no reason whatsoever.

/v/21806 Philip K. Dick's Electric Dreams
Philip K. Dick’s Electric Dreams is a sci-fi anthology series of ten epic, ambitious and moving standalone episodes, each set in a different and unique world – some which lie in the far reaches of the universe and time and others which are much, much closer to home. While the stories may be worlds apart, central to each is the poignant and warm exploration of the importance and significance of humanity.

Each episode is inspired by one of Philip K. Dick’s renowned shorts stories and has been adapted by an exciting list of leading British and American writers and directors. The series also features an all-star roster of cast who head up this thrilling, audacious and emotional journey into the far reaches of imagination.

Starts this Sunday at 9pm.

I actually watched the first episode a few hours ago*. With the proviso that I've never been much of a fan of Dick it was pretty weak; the story is some telepathy nonsense, the acting was awful and the speed of the plot made it unbelievable which could've easily been fixed with a flash forward or two.

However, the show itself has some signs of promise just because every episode will be different like how most Black Mirror episodes are pretty tedious and apparently it gets much better by the third episode.

*because it turns out the leaked episodes of CYE have some hacker bullshit over the bottom which makes them unwatchable for me.

Just finished episode 3 and yeah each episode gets progressively better. I mean that by the way, episode two jumped the quality up to Dr Who writing and the last episode was genuinely enjoyable thanks to Timothy Spall. Although it seems like a no brainer that a parent would never sacrifice their child no matter how much damage they do.

I look forwards to seeing how Steve Buscemi gets on.

>You can't fire somebody simply because of their political views

BNP membership was a sackable offence in most of the public sector, on the basis that the policies of that party are contrary to the Equality Act and the Race Relations Act. It's conceivable that the decision to sack someone on the basis of Drunken Racists membership could be upheld at an Employment Tribunal.

Not the other lad but I'd argue your boss has already crossed the line into constructive dismissal by essentially saying "yeah I can't fire you for it but fuck off all the same". Someone shouldn't mouth off their politics at work of course but your employer sounds like a cunt to skirt the law so finely on such a trivial matter.

For the record there is nothing in the Drunken Racists policy that is fundamentally opposed to "promoting ethnic diversity" in the workplace.

No its not and after the Drunken Racists adoption scandal you can bet the press would eat you alive for trying.

>Sir Edward Heath 'would have been questioned' over abuse claims
>Sir Edward Heath would have been questioned over sex abuse claims if he was alive when they came to light, police have said. Wiltshire Police launched Operation Conifer in 2015 when the former PM was accused of historical child sex abuse.

>The Conservative politician would have been interviewed under caution over seven claims, including the alleged rape of an 11-year-old, they said. No inference of guilt should be drawn from this, police stressed. The allegations include one of rape of a male under 16, three of indecent assault on a male under 16, four of indecent assault on a male under 14, and two of indecent assault on a male over 16.

How in Gods name is this still going on? Operation Conifer has so far burnt through £1.5 million without a shred of evidence and the press are still going along with it instead of calling for Mike Veale to be sacked and possibly tarred and feathered.

I seem to remember a mythical time when if someone talked about satanic rituals they would be laughed at.

Beleagured Theresa May 'to quit as Prime Minister on August 30, 2019 in a bid to stop a leadership challenge' - as she tries to calm rivals with a prosecco party at Chequers

Theresa May is said to have revealed the date she will quit as Prime Minister - giving herself two years to see Brexit through first.

She has chosen Friday August 30th 2019 as the day she will step down from 10 Downing Street, it has been reported.

It comes amid a major charm offensive by Mrs May in a bid to win the support of her MPs and avoid an awkward leadership challenge.

This man is going to become Prime Minister on 1st September 2019 and it's going to be fucking awesome.

I'd wait until the next census before you make a wild statement like that given even the most alarmist stories I can find put it at 53% in E+W (obviously the western isles etc. are still putting people in the wicker man).

My non-scientific opinion is that although most people wouldn't fit the definition of devout Christian they are more receptive to fluffy statements like 'everything happens for a reason' and 'something is watching over us'. The problem is as the majority are completely uneducated in theology they're shocked when they encounter doctrines that find sex a sin.

>therefore don't really want political leaders who do

I doubt most people care. On the flip-side only a tiny minority gave a damn about Corbyn's floppy answer to religion despite it's potential to shape the last election given May's religious nationalism.

You seem to struggle with the concept of compromise in politics. The PM is not a dictator nor does it seem like Mogg wants to create a theocracy -indeed, despite his religious views he has always come across as someone wedded to British natural law traditions.

I think there is something to be said of the nature of British culture where we can have evangelicals who don't presume to enforce their beliefs onto others.

/emo/25702 "Shut the fuck up."
I've been dating this girl for a little over a month and talking for two. She's been over at my place near enough every weekend and we've quickly become accustomed to one another's presence. It's been rocky due to her being quite a "spirtual" person and leading by gut instinct in comparison to my prim and proper logical approach. Naturally with new couples a lot of the tiffs can be chalked up to miscommunication or not being aware of the hard boundaries of your significant other. Fair enough.

She's currently on the rag. We were in bed last night and we got to talking about how she wanted to have sex despite it being her time of the month. We'd already done so earlier in the day. She said she wanted to try 69ing (something I've not tried in the past due to a fairly vanilla sex life) and I explained how I wasn't really comfortable with it due to my germaphobia and not wanting to risk ingesting rotting fucking uterine lining. She went into overdrive and started running off about how I always hurt her when we had sex in her favourite position and how it risked bruising her cervix. I covered my face with my hands and interrupted her mid-diatribe with a firm but casual "shut the fuck up." The atmosphere between us changed immediately. What was a sexually heated session turned debate quickly soured into an icy silence.

"Don't tell me to shut the fuck up," she replied from somewhere in the murky darkness to my right. "I don't tell you to shut the fuck up."

I explained to her that since we had begun dating — and she had consequently become more comfortable around me — she'd started to interrupt me a lot more, often to interject with her own premature opinion or some tangentially related tidbit about a friend or family member. I also explained that she often lacked the ability to rationalise and explained to her that the health risks associated with ingesting the blood of others isn't even in the same field as cervical bruising. I don't need to go into the details but I'm sure you'll agree.

She promptly turned over and refused to talk to me until the morning where I walked her to the station and kissed her goodbye for work.

This probably seems like some silly teenlad / copypasta shite and I totally get why you'd think that but I'm currently in my mid-twenties and haven't had a stable relationship in a while due to my on again, off again relationship with depression, a faltering career (already), and general lack of self worth from abusive previous relationships.

Do the actions described above make me a toxic or controlling person, especially losing my temper so early on? Is she the one that's fucked? Does this mean we're not compatible as a couple? Have you made a similar exclamation to a significant other and if so how did it turn out?

☑ Moan because I feel like I spend more time asking you two for advice than I do sorting my own problems like a Man™.

>His behaviour doesn't have an easy excuse

Sure it does; he was consumed by his disgust at the idea and spoke his mind unfiltered. Then he told her to 'shut the fuck up' because no one deserves to have to stand there quietly and be berated.

>You could argue that she should understand why he was freaking out but that expects too much from people and anyway.

That's exactly my point. You expect him to understand and accept her problems. But you aren't holding her to the same standard.

When she brings up issues that she never brought up until this point I see that as her digging around for ammo to throw back at him, but you describe it as "a legitimate sex complaint", her problem is not that she lacks understanding of him, it is that her way of dealing with being offended is to find fault in the other person and attack.

If she accepted his point about "rotting fucking uterine lining" wasn't a personal attack but badly worded decline she could have been the better person, but she isn't. Neither have good people skills.

I have to agree with >>25703 in that you two don't seem compatible in the long run, at least from what you've told us there. Yes you probably shouldn't have told her to shut the fuck up but she also should have understood why you didn't want to 69 while she's on her period. If anything I'd just advise that you both work on your communication skills.

Just break up for fuck sake, it's been a month, I can't imagine you've already merged your sodding bank accounts. I didn't even get a third of the way through your pointless novella and it's obvious.

Well this is quite a cunty /emo/ thread. Sounds like you're all on your rag. And no I don't want to lick your bloody fanny.

Anyway OP.

>Do the actions described above make me a toxic or controlling person, especially losing my temper so early on?

I don't think so personally. Telling her to shut the fuck up is a bit harsh though, especially if you've only been going out a month. I'm not surprised she then got a bit defensive.

You then continued to dig your own hole with all the stuff about her interrupting, health risks blahblahblah. For a rational person you should realise that this was silly. Of course she's going to get upset with that sort of shit, especially if she's on the rag.

>Is she the one that's fucked?

Pressuring you into doing something sexually you're not comfortable with is a bit of a cunt move but then so is telling someone to shut the fuck up and sperging out.

So I'd say you're probably both a bit fucked, everyone is really. You're both just flawed damaged human beings like we all are and it sounds like a shitty argument. It needn't be a big deal, which lead onto;

/£$€¥/7182 Personal development/study options going forward
Hullo been a while. I would be grateful for your bright ideas on how to get ahead in life and career. This is a bit /job/ and /uni/ too but fundamentally it all comes down to investing in myself so thought this board is the most relevant.

I've just finished my 3 year 'graduate programme' with my current employer and I think I have it in me to be good at all this business malarky - I have done stints in the marketing/communications and business development bits of the business and some other bits. However I studied an arts degree and training/development at my current firm is a joke. I want to go back to some kind of school and spend a while getting a firmer grip on how to be a productive manager and general 'doer' at work. I am envious of a housemate who did a full on financial management bachelors, who's now working his way up in a technology firm doing his CIMA.

Going back to uni and doing a Bachelors would seem way too OTT, so I looked at MBA programmes, particularly in the Netherlands (cheap fees and tuition is in English). However, those require you to have a relevant Bachelors, and good practice in statistics/analysis, which I don't. I would be happy to shell out for a short course, even something online, which could help.

I have about £11,000 in savings and legacies from deceased relatives that I can invest in my personal development. If I were to do a full time qualification I'd work part time to help pay bills. With something less full on I'd stick it out with my current employer.

Starting to feel a bit trapped here. Could any of you offer some tips on what kind of services I could turn to for advice, or what you would do in my situation?

Cheers lads.

You don't need another degree. After a few years in the workplace professional experience/qualifications count for far more than a degree.

You don't need to do a finance degree in order to work in a finance department and study to be a chartered accountant via CIMA.

I like listening to podcasts in the car. Trouble is they get drowned out when I do 70 mph. So I crank up the volume to compensate which is that unfortunate side effect of amplifying some low frequency reverberation as people talk which I think is the bass.

In the manual the radio does have have settings, which may be able to be tweaked so that this noise goes away. I have already selected the 'vocal' equalizer preset which has helped a little bit.

I'll put the stuff I think might be more relevant in bold.
Network mode - 2-way + SW MULTI-AMP reproduction of bands (high/middle/low)
Standard mode:4 or 6 speaker system
Cut-off frequency/Slope (this may be useful...)
Equalizer band:50Hz to 12.5KHz
EQ level -6 to +6
EQ Setting - super bass, powerful, natural, vocal, custom, flat

No idea, possibly? The podcast is seriously good though if it clicks. It might not. I have to be in the right mood for it but when I am it's just pure joy pouring forth from headphones into my brain.

/fat/4320 Awfully sorry to bother you.
To be blunt, I've had some unpleasant shits and stomach aches for the last two weeks now. I was wondering if you gents could critasize my diet. It's slowly changed over the years, and I've grown quite fond of it, rarely making alterations here and there. I've maintained this current diet for over 4 months now, the prior diet was very similar. Around 28,000 calories. The picture is one week.

I run 10km 3 days a week and I lift weights 3 days a week. I have a physical job, warehouse managment, stacking stuff on wooden pallets and moving them around into trucks. I do that 4 days a week. I'm 6ft and 14 stone.

Diabetes makes you piss out sugar only because the condition is a failure to metabolise sugar. In an otherwise healthy person all your sugar intake is assimilated.

/b/413014 Tribunals, fucking tribunals.
Fucking PIP tribunal turned me down. Again. Third one.
They actually got some points this time, The doctor was particularly sympathetic but the Judge was a wanker, kept pressuring them, asking *why* they couldn't fill in forms. "I can do it , so why can't you" is pretty much exactly what she said.
Please say actions like that call the neutrality of the court into question?

Oh, also, they tried to claim that PIP and ESA were 'either/or' benefits (this was the DWP representative who was there!) which is blatantly not true!

These are tory run kangaroo courts, but how do we prove it? Any tips for getting past these?

It helps in the first instance if A) You go in armed with GP and Consultant letters as documented evidence and B) you go with a health care professional, a support worker or something like that, to the initial assessment that can answer questions like "How long can you walk for?" because who the fuck times themselves to exhaustion?
