The joke that is British justice

'Adjourning sentencing, Judge Deva Pillay warned the trio that they face custody'

Wow these pikeys stole £1.2m of property, AND, AND, the judge is warning them then they might be jailed.

Jeez, they must be quaking in their boots today.

one of only 450 in the world
So is it decided she is a 450/1 idiot!

I mean walking around the streets with a rolex on is bad enough.

I mean look at the guys track record it's kind of saying well all these years in the trade and I eventually hit the jackpot :lol: OMG I doubt they have serial numbers, so there are 450 which are probably identical, anyone could be hers.

Guaranteed someone will pick it up at a car boot sale for £50 ha! ha!

I just love car boots...

Fair enough?

[Genuine lol]
Blimey that's pretty optimistic of you there mate! :lol:

My one is unusually understated for the brand, and I very much doubt it would be recognised by a casual pass-by. Still that said, when ever I go on holiday I wear my beaten up indestructible Casio SCUBA watch (which I got free with a dive mag subscription) :)

I love the heading of this thread :D One thing I love with the UK, is that business is just as good for rolex copies, as anywhere else, though when I got caught at customs with 30 copies, he said, what are all those watches, I said copies, I collect them, he let me through and reminded me, to ensure I don't have swaps.. 2 of each kind otherwise he would confiscate them, I said I know that, that's why i only have one of each. haha!

In Singlish we say "my one" instead of "mine".

OIC, yes I take your point, interesting. Funnily enough the word mine sounds a little archaic to my ear, but I'm not altogether sure why. Also I also just bought one for my missus ('her one' ;)) which is very classic and recognisable, so in my mind I was probably subconsciously thinking 'my one compared to say her one' as I was typing my OP.

I do enjoy language and linguistics. Unfortunately for the bulk of my formative education my English Language classes were taught by a Welsh communist who spent year after year trying to turn us into cadres. I actually have no recollection of ever learning any grammar at all. (This explains my disdain for avowedly left-wing teachers! :) ). So unfortunately my English is not up to expressing the stuff that occasionally goes on in my head lol
