    Bill Cosby: What exactly does being sentenced to between three and 10 years in prison actually mean?

    Somehow I cannot see the African American community rushing to campaign for his early release. Nor anyone else.

    1. ReproButina

      As I understand it he can’t apply for any reduction or release for three years so maybe 3 to 10 years means sentenced to 10 and must serve at least 3?

      Clarification would be nice though.

      1. The Old Boy

        That’s more or less it. It’s called an indeterminate sentence. The “lower end” figure is the time he must serve before his release may be considered by the parole board. The “higher end” figure is the most time he will serve (in the ordinary course of events) if the parole board does not consider him suitable for release at any point during the intervening gap.

        The idea is to encourage offenders to participate fully in rehabilitation programmes in order to improve their chances of consideration for parole.

    ” NEXT warns over no-deal Brexit threats ” screams the Indo headline.
    Really ?
    The article actually reports the company saying ” no-deal risks do not pose a “material threat to the ongoing operations and profitability” of Next in the UK or EU.”
    More fake news crap.

      Taking a break from the language classes I see. That’s good. You need time out. You have so much to learn. Bon chance mon amie..

    Anyone see Prime Time on the Swiss border last night?

    There’ll be a deal on Sasamach and it’ll put the customs border in the Irish Sea. Nothing else is workable.

      No but I did see Jackie Healy-Rae co-host on TV3s Tonight Show’. That’s right ‘co-hosting’. Just when you thought TV couldn’t get any more ridiculous and desperate.

    Corbyn sez if deal not suitable then they will go back into negotiations with EU. His metrics are easily explained and rational without alienating any side. Kind of puts all the media hysteria about deadlines and no turning back mantras into perspective. Very smart politicking.

      Smart politicking ?
      You mean Irish-style begging for crumbs off the EU table.
      Labour’s Brexit policy changes by the hour at their shambolic party conference while Corbyn squirms in interviews about working for Iranian TV.
      You’re genuinely clueless.

        1. ReproButina

          I knew Sasamachs were easily led morons but imagine complaining about fake news while posting this rubbish.

          Rees Mogg seems to have forgotten about Malta, Germany, Austria and the Netherlands to name but a few of the EU27 countries with lower rates of youth unemployment than the UK.

          The bang of desperation off it.

          1. Brother Barnabas

            in fairness to ‘the moggster’, he’s been happily pulling the wool over the eyes of cretinous dunces like charger for two years now. been getting away with it so far, so no reason for him to put any real effort into it now.

    Oh no, First Holy Communion girl won’t be able to get Mammy & Daddy to buy a woefully expensive dress so she can go to church to fidget for 45 minutes in front of the man in his dress then straight on to the bouncy castles and a diet of cakes, buns and sweets for the day and collect her €800 from the grown ups who get flittered drunk on cans whilst religion or mass will not be mentioned again until Christmas or a wedding then rinse and repeat.

    *Holy rant over indenameofdefadderanson………

      The Parish Priest was on the radio this morning explaining the situation. He says it’s a case of different schools in the parish making FHC on different Sunday’s during regular Sunday Mass within the parish. So people in the same class still get to make their FHC together. Just no stand-alone seperate event. This seems to make a lot of sense for a whole variety of reasons.

      The message mustn’t have gotten across though (or has changed) as some parents are saying it was a case of turning up at any mass and doing it.

    My comment urging ignoring of obvious trolls is still visible on the app but disconnected from the comment it was responding to and is not visible here at all.

    Is this an app issue?

    Corbyn’s Labour Party in a nutshell.
    It’s been revealed the cleaning company it uses at its party conference in Liverpool uses zero hours contracts and only pays minimum wage.
    Up the workers !

      Meanwhile he is hanging out, and being photographed, with known Holocaust denier….but he’s not an anti-Semite

        Where else but the Labour Party Conference would there be two policeman on duty outside the door of the Friends of Israel meeting yesterday INSIDE the conference secure zone.

      Indeed God doesn’t hate you little girl but Batman and the tooth fairy think you’re a prick. No sleep for you.
