  1. Alec Baldwin fatally shoots woman with prop gun on movie set

    I suspect you'd find it very different. Its not just the effect of muzzle flash and smoke, its also the action of the gun. A gun firing 'nothing' would present no recoil, no weight or realism. It'd look terrible in my opinion. A lady has lost her life and that's tragic, but we don't need to...
  2. Alec Baldwin fatally shoots woman with prop gun on movie set

    I did try to warn you. Your name would have been appropriate though.
  3. Alec Baldwin fatally shoots woman with prop gun on movie set

    Also, one warning, don't go to this guy's twitter profile, ESPECIALLY if you're at work.
  4. Alec Baldwin fatally shoots woman with prop gun on movie set

    This is also speculation for a number of reasons. Firstly the prop master doesn't manage the firearms, that's the armorer, or weapons master. Secondly we don't know if the armorer was even there, Brandon Lee was killed in part because they filmed a scene with a firearm after they sent the...
  5. Alec Baldwin fatally shoots woman with prop gun on movie set

    Pure speculation, but an assistant armourer (the name given to the people who manage firearms on a production) posted something that their suspicion would be a failure in the weapon itself, their guess was a shotgun to cause these results. The person above said when this is done usually, the...
  6. Conservative MP David Amess stabbed to death

    Ok, next time Boris says something inflamatory I’m sure everyone on here will be cool about it.
  7. Conservative MP David Amess stabbed to death

    Are you suggesting our leaders should use the language you hear in football stands?
  8. Conservative MP David Amess stabbed to death

    I’ve always found that odd. “Let’s call the people whose vote we need to win scum”.
  9. Conservative MP David Amess stabbed to death

    I'm confused, are you talking about the post early on that was deleted? If so, I've not referenced that at all, I've been referring to Rayner's comments. Conceded, I did do that, albeit after about 6 posts referring to him being a Tory. Nor me, all I really said was that leaders need to...
  10. Conservative MP David Amess stabbed to death

    Actually, I think its all language not befitting leaders. You think one is OK, and that's fine, we can agree to disagree. Not really, I said that when leaders call people scum perhaps some people that look up those leaders will perceive that as true. To make a link from that to "its her fault"...
  11. Conservative MP David Amess stabbed to death

    I never once used the word traitor, my debates have been entirely around the terminology Rayner used. Clearly. Also, you're just factually wrong, Rayner called Conservatives "a bunch of scum, homophobic, racist and misogynistic". She then went on to talk about Johnson, but unless Johnson is now...
  12. Conservative MP David Amess stabbed to death

    But that's not what she did. Targetting one person with that statement would be one thing, but she didn't, she referred to Conservatives as "a bunch of scum, homophobic, racist and misogynistic". Not only is that ignorant its also demonstrably incorrect and not the language politicians should be...
  13. Conservative MP David Amess stabbed to death

    I'm not sure where 'traitor' entered the debate, but there's also a different between you calling someone scum on an internet forum and an elected MP, her party's deputy leader, doing it publically. If you can't see the difference in that then I don't know what to say. It sounds like you're OK...
  14. Conservative MP David Amess stabbed to death

    I'm not putting it on Rayner's lap, I'm pointing out the hypocrisy of the "words have consequences" position the Labour party have had for the past few years when their deputy leader uses such language. To be clear: Boris' language is nasty, Rayner's language is nasty, but at least that's a...
  15. Conservative MP David Amess stabbed to death

    I get that the person who committed this crime probably has very strong objections to Tory policy, but debating the merit of that position only serves to validate it and to be honest just comes across as cheap political point scoring. What a well thought out response. The point is clear: when...
