    Just seen elsewhere a man was attacked and robbed of his Patek watch in the car park of Bicester Outlet Village, I know we have one regular visitor at least here, be careful guys, I also read of a man robbed targeted in Selfridges watch area and mugged after leaving the store, time to get the old Timex neverite out for wearing?

    Oh really... I guess that's inevitable though. It's the most visited tourist attraction in the country and all people do there is spend money and walk around with bags full of expensive shopping... I'm surprised it doesn't happen all the time if I'm honest. Still, sucks for that guy though...
    IIRC they had a ram raid at the TAG boutique once, when it was on the front... now you can't get a car to it. There really should be more security there.

    I think you Brittish folks have something to learn from Sweden, here the police tell people to "dress poor" and avoid expensive clothes and jewelry to avoid getting robbed ::facepalm2::

    And ladies, if you want to avoid being sexually assaulted, dress like your grandmother?

    Statements like that have been seen in newspapers yes (not to look like a grandmother but to dress modest). It is ridiculous I know...

    Policemen shouldn't have to wear stabvests either, but 'being right' doesn't protect you from a knife.

    A wee update from the Selfridges attack, they have excellent cctv seemingly and security had identified the suspects with help from the victim, crew returned to the store to pull the same trick, police now have 3 of the 5 involved, only 2 weeks in the country from Algeria?(iirc) illegally seemingly, they’ll probably get a slap on the wrist and released in time for Santa. The watch has not yet been recovered.

    Merely reporting what told to the watch owner by police, apparently first claimed silence was their right. And I‘ve accused of worse things, I used to sell cars for a living, almost as low as an estate agent apparently.::facepalm1::

    No worries, she cant get to you right now. I read that she is back here to make sure that Swedish kids stay out of school. Apparently there is no point going to school since the world is ending in 10 years because we drive cars...

    The lassies heart is in the right place and she only wants to save the world, fortunately, there is a large glass jar awaiting her heart in a lab somewhere.

    Well after all she's proved it's perfectly plausible to travel to America by boat, even if it did take 4 months to get there and back...

    Well the Pilgrim Fathers went that way some ago, it was good enough for them, they didn’t come back though.

    Actually I think her heart is in the right place, unfortunately I think the scale of the problem means that we are doomed. Humans will never work together to solve the problem because capitalism doesn't make it feasible. Also, no one will address the elephant in the room: population control.
