Some one has posted pictures a topless 16 year old Samantha Fox I had to report to Reddit because I think those pictures may actually be illegal I reported it the sub Reddits mods if they don't do anything I will go Reddits admin.
That's what age she was when she first did Page 3. Obviously different times 40 years ago, but I'm guessing those photos have been out there ever since the internet became a thing.

Just looked up the law and it seems The Sun broke the law (there's a surprise) even back then by publishing them as it's covered by a law from 1978:
"In the UK the age of consent for sexual intercourse is 16. However, it is an offence to make, distribute, possess or show any indecent images of anyone aged under 18, even if the content was created with the consent of that young person. The law is contained in section 1 Protection of Children Act 1978."

Hello everyone, I am back from a brief hiatus due to health issues again, this time around I was in the hospital for four days. Evidently an artery in my stomach started leaking inside it, and I lost a lot of blood through my GI tract. I got very lightheaded and white as a sheet, and had to call the ambulance. My hemoglobin levels, which are supposed to be at 12+, were only at 4 when I got to the hospital. They had to give me 5 pints of blood to get it back up over 7. Unfortunately, when they did an endoscopy to try to cauterize the vessel, it had already closed up so they weren't able to locate it to fix it.

I'm back home now, after they got my hemoglobin levels up over 8, but they said if I start having the same symptoms to come right back to the emergency room so they can scope me right away and find it while it is actively leaking and fix it properly. So, I am off work right now resting up. I can barely step up one flight of stairs without getting lightheaded and my heart pounding. I'm not in very good shape at all; It really sucks getting old. So, if I happen to suddenly disappear again on here for an extended time, well... 😟
I'm now diabetic plus I have high blood pressure and I'm waiting on my GP to change my tablets because my heart rate is still too high with the current tablets I'm taking.

Jeez, that's horrifying. I'm glad you pulled through. You still have all those sealed anime blu-rays to watch!

So it's pretty much child porn and her own mum basically pimping out her own child out to a bunch creeps working at the sun.

I always remember my science teacher telling the class, when we are past early 20s, this is it now, our body begins to fail. Fortunately, we are much more than our own bodies. We can do our best with the information we have and the help of the doctor. We can suffer badly, but can also heal remarkably.

Have faith and work hard towards your recovery. You can come through on the other side and live a happy life even if there are some limits to it. I have chronic illness so I do know it can happen.

****! Sorry to hear that. Been there myself before, but at least I got better notice than that. Got 3 months gardening leave IIRC.
Hopefully you'll get a good redundancy payment for all those years of service and, of course, find a new job quickly!
I got the same notice my company did. I work for a company that does the councils CCTV. I knew the contract was up for tender and found out today that the council aren't renewing the contract and not getting another company. They are mothballing the CCTV for the town.

There is a position at another place but I can't get to it as I don't have a car (unless the company wants to give me a company car) and the only public transport to get there is by train.

My work history is:
Paper round
Tesco
Pub
CCTV

My work history starts the same way 🙂
Although I then went to Uni did a course on Archaeology, then worked at an Archaeological company till the credit crunch and I'm now back at a supermarket doing deliveries.
I think whatever you end up doing getting any job straight away is better than nothing, I spent a year trying pretending to find a job in a similar field to what I was doing and ended up losing all my redundancy money because the dole and housing benefit didn't cover s***!

I went to university and tesco transfered me to the local store but unfortunately university was a waste of my time. Wish I had done an apprenticeship but when I was at college it was all about going to university.

I can't start looking properly as I don't know what is happening and my redundancy payment but I do have an SIA badge so I can work in any CCTV control room. I have a drivers license plus I was the supervisor so I'm used to doing paperwork and the wages.

Bit of an idiotic decision to try and save money by switching off CCTV cameras, especially when crime levels are as they are. Less CCTV= increased crime (like stealing purses)..

But no doubt the council offices needs all brand new top spec £2000+ office chairs for all the council bigwigs to sit in when they are not working from home

The company is expecting us to transfer to another control room that is 2 hours away on public transport and would cost me £220 per month for bus and train on minimum wage.

Some life updates on my end (which I know contradicts the current discussion so apologises on that). I've managed to stick with my current job for just over 12 months now which is a great achievement for me personally considering how everything went down in late 2018 to early 2019, and was even rewarded for the work I did last month to get £75 Amazon gift card. I often work too hard as some have noticed - with hours going as high as 52 hours on some occasions (I'm contracted to work 40 hours a week and up to 48 in some situations due to our weekend events that are held once every while).

I like my job for the most part, but I've barely booked holiday because there's no room for one and the only reason that I got holiday booked for the rest of this week was because my manager had to intervene and force me to use up my holiday days. I do have more holiday booked in November at least (Center Parcs + Aqua Sana at the end of November) but the issue is often down to my job being so complex that it's hard to have someone backup and do some of my stuff as it's in depth.

Either way my plan is to stick with this job until I reach the limit on what I can learn, gain etc. The company also had some layoffs on one department because their group apparently was struggling for years which caught everyone off guard but the department that I work for is doing well so far, so we'll be fine in the meantime. Our IT guy also left to work for an IT support company, but their company is working with ours so he's still around in a way which is nice.

Some sort of semi dodgy "we will offer you this transfer which is unsuitable to avoid paying out on redundancy"?

Yep, it’s the fact they didn’t offer both a transfer or redundancy. My position would definitely be made redundant as I’m the control room manager and they’ve already got one of those at the other control room, I would need to be demoted.

The best thing is we called the other control room and they have no idea about us possibly going there and when we asked if there were jobs going they were noncommittal about it. There would need to be 2 x 42 hour jobs there.
