  1. Quite right. I don't know why people get confused. 'Big knives' are not offensive weapons per se, hence the reason why the 1988 Act made it illegal to have them in public. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. No. I am saying that if a delivery driver was found to be in possession of a 4" locking blade then he would be suspected of possessing an article with a blade or that is sharply pointed. It would be up to him to show that he had it for use at work. It is not enough just to say you use it at work you to show why you need it. I don't see why you need a 4" blade to cut some sellotape. A police officer was recently charged with this offence for having a multi-tool on him that had a locking blade. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Your looking at the wrong issue. You seem to be saying you have a 4" knife that you want an excuse to carry. You should be saying you have boxes you need to open so what is a suitable blade to cut packing tape with. A retractable Stanley knife seems suitable or a 1" non locking pen knife. If you don't need a 4" blade to solve your issue then you'd struggle that it is a reasonable excuse. Otherwise why not a machete or a samurai sword? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Why does a 2.9 inch blade not fit the bill? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Rewrite your script so your first comment to Claire is, 'Hi Claire. I'm glad you're in, was concerned that Fido was distressed. He seemed to be tangled up in his lead. But you're here now. Bye.' Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Section 47 of the Children Act 1989 places a duty on Local Authorities to investigate and make inquiries into the circumstances of children considered to be at risk of ‘significant harm’ and, where these inquiries indicate the need, to decide what action, if any, it may need to take to safeguard and promote the child’s welfare. Agencies dealing with children who have a concern are obliged to share any relevant information with partner agencies - police, health, education, Local Authority (Social Services). A Sec 47 meeting is held and action considered. The child may not have been taken from the mother and put into care but take doesn't mean no action was taken.
  7. A solicitor. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. The welfare of any child who the suspect may have access to will be dealt with by a multi-agency approach. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Attempted murder has the same maximum sentence as Sec 18 Wounding - life imprisonment. So why go to the expense and risk of a trial when the judge will still be able to sentence based on the established facts. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. PCW means a subject access request under the Data Protection Act. It depends on what the matter was that was being investigated and whether you have any other information held on you. Also whether other people were involved. At the lowest level it is solely about one person and not a serious matter, not violent or sexual, then the information should be disposed of after 6 years.

  11. Some of the words make sense but not many of the sentences. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. PACE was a change in the 20th century, not the 21st and as it came in in 1986 there will be hardly any serving officers left who worked as an officer pre PACE. You will have to rely on retired officers and their questionable recollection. Sent from me using witchcraft
  13. GET LEGAL ADVICE. He is at least entitled to half an hour free with a solicitor and unless he is a very rich/well paid 18 year old he will be entitled to legal aid. With a good solicitor, and in the right circumstances, he may not have to plead guilty to anything. Sent from me using witchcraft
  14. Yes, it is domestic abuse. Sent from me using witchcraft
  15. Or not have a word and carry on about your lawful business. If she wants to try to involve the police then she should be disappointed as this is not a police matter - they should only attend if there is a breach of the peace going on. If she wants to waste her money paying a solicitor to achieve nothing then leave her to it. Sent from me using Witchcraft
