    Tommy smashing the state and saying what everyone is thinking in...err....Center Parcs.
    Word 'on the Tweet' is that his 8 year old daughter was upset that a man had groped her. Don't know if true.
    I feel like the use of 'on the tweet' is a GIable offence, at least for 48 hours

    Genuinely speaking, isn't that their origin? I understand that later in time they became quite stereotypical in presentation (and controversial as a result), but their origin is rooted in fantasy. The author herself said they were a form of gnome.

    @askew At least he's keeping it in this thread and not the Celebrity Death Thread (or, worse, the Nutter Runs Amok thread).

    For now.

    He had that incident before, didn't he, when he landed on a taxiway strip, not a runway.

    He's very deferential in that when he realises he's up shit creek.

    There was a story in the news the other day. While I have heard of West Bromwich, I had never heard of a place called Smethwick, located near by.
    Google Smethwick and it sounds like a less than desirable place.

    Story:
    31-year-old man stabbed to death in broad daylight at West Cross shopping centre, Smethwick.
    Incident caught on camera. 8 people arrested.

    Update 1:
    Four men arrested on suspicion of murdering Karl Gallagher in Smethwick are still being questioned by detectives. All four, aged 19, 19, 21 and 20. Meanwhile three men, aged 20, 21 and 22, held on suspicion of assisting an offender and a 24-year-old man arrested on suspicion of obstructing police have all been released under investigation.

    Update 2:
    Tyrell Harris, 19, from West Bromwich, has been remanded in custody to appear before magistrates in Wolverhampton on April 30th

    Shocking stuff. Google Smethwick, and two other incidents happened on the same weekend. One involved stabbing, the other involved two machete attack’s.


    Oct 2019:
    Shots fired in second drive-by shooting in Smethwick in 24 hours.
    Shots were fired from a car in Smethwick in the second drive-by shooting in 24 hours.
    People living near the scene claim to have heard six gun shots ring out during the attack and no arrests have yet been made.

    Oct 2019:
    Sandwell drugs gang leaders jailed after smuggling heroin in chicken shipments. Sandwell men Nazrat Hussain, 36, and Wasim Hussain, 34, have been jailed for more than 29 years and 14 years respectively after being convicted of importing class A drugs.


    Taxi driver. drug dealer jumped NAKED out of window to avoid cops finding his £1.7m drug empire is jailed. Mohammed Asif lept from the first-floor of his home in Smethwick, as officers stormed the property searching for a cache of drugs, money and weaponry. The 30-year-old was detained a short while later, and officers subsequently recovered Class A drugs, equipment, more than £50,000 in cash, and 200 rounds of ammunition.

    Black Country gang jailed for 35 years for flooding Wyre Forest towns with drugs. Nine men from Bilston, Smethwick, Wednesbury, Oldbury and Bewdley were found guilty of being involved in county lines operation in the Wyre Forest area following a trial. A gang of Black Country drug dealers have been jailed for more than 35 years for flooding the streets with heroin and crack cocaine.

    Man jailed after killing pensioner in violent Smethwick beating. A murderer who battered to death a harmless 70-year-old man took the secret of his motive to the cells as he started a life sentence of at least 18 years four months today. Palvinder Hayre, who had a history of violence and hard drinking, snapped at his home in White Road, Smethwick, during a drinking spree with Gurmukh Singh.

    Two Smethwick men have been jailed for six years each after attacking a man with a machete then setting a dog on him.

    A Jamaican man who plunged a knife into a fellow countryman’s neck - killing him during a midday attack in an internet café - has been told he’ll spend at least the next 21 years in jail. Douane Brown stabbed Horace Williams at the Smethwick café on 16 April in what witnesses described as being like “scenes from a horror movie".
