It's not stealing if there in't a fence around it... Section 10, Theft Act '68... Ave it!

 

I assume that only applies to stuff in a skip?

10. Aggravated burglary.

1) A person is guilty of aggravated burglary if he commits any burglary and at the time has with him any firearm or imitation firearm, any weapon of offence, or any explosive; and for this purpose—

a) "firearm" includes an airgun or air pistol, and "imitation firearm" means anything which has the appearance of being a firearm, whether capable of being discharged or not; and

B) "weapon of offence" means any article made or adapted for use for causing injury to or incapacitating a person, or intended by the person having it with him for such use; and

c) "explosive" means any article manufactured for the purpose of producing a practical effect by explosion, or intended by the person having it with him for that purpose.

2) A person guilty of aggravated burglary shall on conviction on indictment be liable to imprisonment for life.

 

Doesn't seem to be remotely relevant!

No I didn't. you tiresome woman.

 

You made a claim that I only argued things where I could quote regulations and that I walked away from arguments where I couldn't back my position with the law.

 

In this case, an assertion has been made that s10, Theft Act 1968 legitimises taking stuff out of skips. I have posted the text to show that it does not.

 

Perhaps it would be better for me to simply have asserted that it was untrue, then we could argue it back and forth for days.

So, the thread has drifted into a discussion of which tips aren't "saving" power, but are "stealing" power.

 

Big deal!

I never go to the pub without my phone charger.

Always ask permission first - never been refused.

From dead my phone takes four pints, a beef stroganoff, apple pie with custard and a filter coffee to be fully charged :lol:

And on the pub subject. Always use the loo before leaving back to the boat. Saves on pump outs as well. Plus all the time you are in the pub you are saving power on the boat :lol:

If I have ice cream, with my apple pie, does that mean I'll have to have a fifth pint?

You could always exchange the filter coffee for a fifth pint

tating from skips is a crime.

the person who has hired the skip is the owner and is responsible for the safe and legal desposal of the waste.

 

an example of were this can go rong.

a friend of mine had stuf taken from his skip whoever took it dident want it all striped the bits they wanted and dumped the rest.

unfortuantly the item containd the address of my friend and he was dun for fly tipping.

so if you want stuf from skips and offer a recipt to transfer ownership /responsability. of said item.

 

if you took wood from a skip unnone to you coated in a dangros chemical and you burnt it and fumes killd someone

who is responsable?

 

sorry about thr thred drift.

And remember, boys and girls, in these highly safety concious days, there are other risks we should be aware of.

 

Fortunately the owners of this skip have it covered, but you might chose ones where such risks have not been highlighted to you......

Nice of them to leave a step, to help you climb in, though.

Yes, although that seems to be lacking the warning that a small person could climb inside, the lid snap shut, and that they would then suffocate.

 

Everywhere I look there is just a total lack of concern for public safety.

Yeah, that step should've had a handrail.

back to a tip.

we use a food flask to slow cook food.

cook meal as normal, transfer to flask and it continues to cook itself for up to 8 hours then serve,

food is still hot but for those that like it piping hot verry little energy to bring up to temp.

You could of course just cook meal and eat it straight away.

did you miss the bit were i said slow cook?

a slow cooker needs energy all the time not much i know but by using a flask verry little heat is lost and the food continues to cook

a slow cooker is mostly replacing the heat it is loseing it is only maintainig a low temprature.

Didnt miss it. But cooking quick (but wholesome) food saves a lot of energy too.

If thats 30 tonnes of dry wood its about 40-60m3. Would be worth about £4-£6k as prepared firewood.

 

Assuming its good enough.

 

Why dont they sell it?

(er what is it?)
