Oh lordy, this is like giving candy/beer/bacon to a Farker.

+1, just for the sheer novelty of a thread about something British not involving jokes about teeth, food, and without 'Nanny State' shoved in the headline.

Submitter's headline is hilarious!

The cop that gave me the speeding this morning was a total asshat. I rate him at zero donuts!!!

I can see this catching on. . . . Unlikely. . .

Soon after responders get sued for defamatory ratings, staked out, arrested on imaginary charges.

-1... Miranda rights were clearly listed by seller, but were broken on delivery!

I think that Miranda stuff is dealt with by the 'Police and Criminal Evidence Act' in the UK.

What? Oh, sorry... submitter, you are brilliant.

Brilliant, Subby!

/A++, Would LOL again at headline

Police brutality delivered promptly, would def "walk into a door" again. Recommended.
 
2009-03-10 10:11:51 AM  
Yay, Subby! Great headline.
 
2009-03-10 10:27:01 AM  
Add my voice to the chorus of LOLs. Good jorb, subby.

As a member of one of these services, can I move my existing EBay ratings over to this new system in hope of promotion?

Also... we missed this:

Meanwhile, a commission of experts has been set up to advise the government in England on the future role of ... midwives.

Not sure how that role can change all that much, unless they're going to be cross-trained in bricklaying...

Off-topic: One of my favorite Dr. Who moments ever involved an episode with one of those pre-Tom Baker Doctors. For some reason, the Doctor was in a NASA control room, and there was a young man in uniform WHO WAS SHOUTING ALL OF HIS LINES. ALL OF THEM.

After a few minutes, I realized that this was supposed to be his "American accent." Brilliant!

My dear UK friends, there's more to being American than shouting. You also have to know how to fart and belch.

/Shouting farting and belching is an excellent way to go through life, son.
//His "American" accent can't be any worse than the "Irish" accents I hear on local radio around St. Patrick's Day.

so we're not allowed to leave negative feedbacks?
 
2009-03-10 12:34:02 PM  
Right, so what happens if the feedback says that the police in an area suck? What happens then? Is the chief constable going to get fired, or will it just be that some report will be produced on improvements, requiring even more bureaucrats with a timeline, followed by another when it makes no difference...

Really, TripAdvisor works because it's involved in the FREE MARKET. I can see repeated "This Hotel Sucks" and just avoid it and go to somewhere better.

That's completely cynical and unrealistic. Get real, please.

"Of course you can go sir...as soon as you complete this feedback form, with the assistance of Officer Guido here."
