Belfast Chat / Re: bin collection rate increase

Thatís called fly tipping and it is an offence in this country. Are you advocating people here  break the law?
Yes, you're correct of course, that is illegal, and it would be illegal in many countries,... and normally it's only done by people who are too inconsiderate to dump their waste properly,... and normally no I wouldn't advocate doing that, but, in regard to this issue, a lot of Councils in Britain have, or are trying to introduce such extended collection periods, and it generates a lot of opposition from the public, which is usually mostly ignored by the Councils,... so, if it takes a bit of organised mass civil disobedience to make them take notice,... then that is a matter for the residents to consider and decide on for themselves.

In fact those extended collection periods can often cause additional fly tipping.

Councils use the claim of being more environmentally friendly and increasing recycling of food waste as an excuse to do that, but often even recyclable non food waste is just dumped by them instead of being recycled.

The estimated street value released to the press has absolutely no bearing on the court case. What matters is the accurate weight and what type of drug it is. No doubt, the police will provide the accurate details to the court.

Of course they will  ;) ::)

I haven't used my bin for several years,... I put kitchen waste in a small under sink bin lined with a plastic bag, and when it starts to get full, I tie it up and dump it in one of several street litter bins at the end of the street which get emptied every day.

If your situation is a problem for you and your neighbours,... bag your waste up and dump it on the street at a common point,... they'll soon get it collected,... and they'll soon have a rethink.

Thatís called fly tipping and it is an offence in this country. Are you advocating people here  break the law?

But it does matter. And it will matter to the defense if the PSNI have botched the estimate which they clearly have done.

No it doesn't matter. The drugs are off the streets . Whether the estimate is botched or not those drugs are not going back onto the streets.
That's a good result in my book.

Belfast Genealogy / Re: John Kennedy Royal Inniskilling Fusiliers

In her first post, about her grandfather,... on this other thread,...
http://www.belfastforum.co.uk/index.php/topic,24371.msg1229768.html#msg1229768

She says,...

"My paternal grandfather apparently was in the Royal Inniskilling Fusiliers."

"I have a picture of him in uniform taken in Lahore India around 1902."

"His name was John O'Neill from the Dock area of Belfast."

"I also have a brass cigarette box of his that was given to the troops Christmas 1914."

"I have found him and my Granny and 3 kids in the 1911 census but not in the 1901 census,... perhaps he was in India. ?"

"My Dad was the youngest and was orphaned at the age of 7 so he knew very little about his parents."

"I do have proof of his interment in Milltown on March 24 1931 at the age of 55."

So born circa 1876.

Presumably the Milltown burial is referring to her supposed grandfather,... and she may of course have proof that he was her grandfather.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
In another later reply on that thread she posted her picture of her army grandfather.

http://www.belfastforum.co.uk/index.php/topic,24371.msg1234008.html#msg1234008

It shows the rank chevron of a lance corporal on his upper right sleeve,... and an inverted single 2 years good conduct chevron on the cuff of his left sleeve.

She said on that post,...

"This is my paternal grandfather John O'Neill."

"The picture was taken in Lahoare India around 1901/2."

"His service number was 5586"
