  1. On 26 May 2011, John Cooper was given a whole life order for the 1985 double murder of siblings Richard and Helen Thomas, and the 1989 double murder of Peter and Gwenda Dixon. The murders were known in the media as the "Pembrokeshire Murders" or the "Coastal Murders". Cooper was also sentenced for the rape of a 16-year-old girl and a sexual assault on a 15-year-old girl, both carried out while a group of five teenagers were held at gunpoint in March 1996, in a wooded area behind the Mount Estate in Cooper's hometown of Milford Haven, Pembrokeshire. Cooper had a history of criminal activities, including 30 robberies and violent assault. Footage from the television game show Bullseye (on left) in May 1989, in which he appeared as a (shit) contestant, was later used as evidence against him, comparing his image with a sketch of a suspect in the Dixons' murder. Cooper was sentenced to 14 years in 1998 for robbery and burglary. He was released from prison in January 2009. Because of subsequent developments in DNA and forensic science, the police carried out a cold case review in April 2009 and were able to identify Cooper's shotgun as being the murder weapon. Further DNA evidence was provided by forensic scientist Professor Angela Gallop.[4] The police collected further evidence against him and Cooper was arrested again in May of that year. He was convicted, in May 2011, for the double murders and sexual assaults and sentenced to a whole life order. Cooper has also been linked to other unsolved crimes.
  2. Literally just booked and it is Ryanair so at the moment it is... Edinburgh - Barcelona Fri 6 Aug Arrive 17:15 Barcelona - Edinburgh Friday 13 Aug Dep 17:55 Probably giving you way more info than you want but in case anyone else has any tips... There will be 5 of us there, the other 3 coming into Girona at 9am. I am travelling with the other half from Scotland but sharing an apartment with her sister, hubby and a female friend. Apartment not booked yet. None of us are big drinkers but enjoy cultural stuff, museums etc and happy to do a bit of sightseeing on foot as well use local services. Think there is a curfew but happy to go sightseeng then a meal then head home again. We prefer cool, relaxed and quirky stuff rather than brash and in your face entertainment. Did a day trip to Barcelona but it was years ago so happy to see it more in-depth. Have visited the stadium and attended a game so not fussed about that. Any help about testing or things to do that might be worth seeing or not in a guide book would be great.
  3. Been doubled-jabbed since Feb and got the NHS Scotland letter to prove it. Looking to go to Barcelona for a week flying out 6th August but trying to figure out what I need to do, where to get it and how much it will cost is driving me nuts. Any advice would be appreciated.
  4. This is what I love about P&B. The knowledge and advice of fellow punters. I now know how to get rid of elderly relatives in a fun way while watching as I eat candy floss, that I missed the signs for a threesome, and how to travel round the country for without paying a penny as long as I am willing to drop my breeks at the sight of a Yorkie bar.😂
  5. I have a female friend who fits the old fashioned blonde, fit but slightly dumb stereotype. I cut her slack as English is not her first language, but she has come out with some belters. Announced to a bunch of mostly strangers..."I like any man" (Eminem). Asked me if I had ever been on a "holocauster" (I had visions of a terrified Adolf Hitler at Blackpool Pleasure Beach). Asked her partner who is an HGV driver 'how many people could you get in the back of your truck?" As this was just a couple of days after 39 poor souls were found dead in the back of a lorry in Essex I had to ask her to clarify. Turned out she was actually asking about the sleeping compartment in the back of his cab. To be honest I was more shocked he had not pumped her in it yet than her initial question.
  6. Just remembered another belter from a few years ago. Met this girl who was 17 to support her. During the conversation her older sister piped up saying "Ach, I'm just thick as fcuk". I then tried to reassure her that this was not the case. I suggested that everybody learns differently and not always at the same rate, adding that academia is not for everyone so that might explain her negative experience at school, hence she might have switched off and not got the education/qualifications she might have wanted. Her reply was..."Nah, I am thick. I only found out last year that the sun and moon are not the same thing". I asked her to elaborate. She had spent nearly all her life thinking that the sun was like a slow spinning ball and as it turned it would eventually become the moon and that is how we got daytime and nightime.
  7. What an absolute dive! Cannot believe he never got booked for that.
  8. Currently in London, been here since Thursday. Been travelling all over the place and really been surprised at the lack of flags and people wearing England stuff going around. Yeah I know the tournament is over but I expected to see more than 2 guys in old England shirts and a taxi with a flag. I have seen two 'Italia Campioni" flags (not in restaurants) and two Italian shirts. Even saw a guy in Chinatown in a 1986 Scotland shirt.
  9. Congratulations to Robin Hood. Enjoy your winnings. England fail at pens again and I still have a packet of Danish bacon in the fridge. A win win in my book.
  10. Not sure what is more cringeworthy. Having to print the name of your country on a flag to remind your citizens that the Union flag is not just yours, or flying a flag advertising The Sun newspaper. Actually I do.
  11. I was watching and thinking that. One looked lost and befuddled while the other looked in control of everything. Including the person he was psyching out!
  12. Still hoping my sweepie team does the business tomorrow night. If not my back up is ready to go for Sunday.😂
