The report is what it is and I think it reflects a fair picture of what is happening in the community.

I can't believe a childseat is wider than a human, but even if it was you just put one in the front seat and one each side in the back.

Who do you buy from? I don't smoke anymore but I know people who still do and it seems £20-£30 a gram is the going rate.. Street value is the RRP not the trade price ;)

Wow, 4G when the island isn't even covered fully with a 3G service. Take a drive along the central corridor from the North to the South of the island and see how long your 3G signal lasts.
