I noticed on here a while ago some links to groups around the world including one for Wales and another for Scotland.
There were none for England or the UK in general that I could spot.

I would like to be able to ask questions or discuss things which only apply to England or English law as there are so many different nationalities it becomes confusing.

It would also be a place where other nationalities could come to ask questions such as language differences or other cultural differences we often come across.

Would this be welcomed by others?
Could this be a sticky so it is not so difficult to find?

It’s cute that your trolley is our shopping cart, and that your tram is our trolley.

Your idea is a good one.

I am hoping for a good response to this as there is a plethora of English people on here.

Also, it goes very quiet on some threads when people on the other side of the world go to bed.

There are plenty of Welsh, Irish and Scottish people here too so I am wondering if a UK thread would be more apt? Or if separate threads would be more desirable.

I guess I will have to wait and see what others think.

I hope my response was good.

I mentioned a language difference which I found charming.

An important concept in English law is the “official caution.” Does the “official caution” affect one’s job prospects?

Another important thing is the “county court judgment.” How long do they last?

Another question people ask: “Do I have to disclose my Aspergers when I get my driving license?

I have no idea - English law is vast.
I can imagine it could if your employer was aware of your 'crime'.

DBS certificates are required if you are working with children or vulnerable adults. It ensures you have no criminal record or states which crimes you have committed.

The criteria changes often so I am not aware of the latest requirements or impact a caution could have.

With the current job market I also think that employers have the advantage and can be very picky who they employ.

There could be other people versed in English law who can chime in.

Isn’t that what you want the thread to be about?

These are issues which affect many autistic people in the UK, it seems to me.

That’s why I mentioned them.

Another issue that frequently crops up is housing—council houses in particular. The entitlements for an autistic person.

And employment law, too, pertaining to people on the Spectrum.

Yanks would be of little use in these matters.

I do know that an “official caution” alone doesn’t give you a criminal record.

I think it could be useful. As well as legal questions, the UK healthcare system is very different to that of our friends from the USA, which can often make advice about seeking diagnosis, counselling etc. inappropriate unless the poster's location is taken into account.

It doesn't have to be about law but anything a person wants to talk about.
There may be someone who can answer all your questions but a google search would be quicker.

It could be that someone spots a bargain - Tescos reduced cream profiteroles down to 62p a few weeks ago and this could have been useful for some?

Perhaps someone knows of services in an area which can help others?
Maybe some will make friendships with people closer to them?
It could be just having fun and joking around.

It can evolve however it happens.

Yes exactly.
Some things are only applicable to a location.

Also, for those who need financial assistance, others who have been through the process of getting extra help can point others in the right direction.

I figured that. I figured you wanted many more topics than legal topics.

By the way, what is your impression of the Citizens Advice Bureau?

My research indicates that one should think carefully before “accepting” a police caution. It’s not a criminal record, but it probably has a similar effect as an unsealed violation record in New York State.

The CAB can be a busy service and there is a long wait in some areas.

I am off of here for a few hours - it will be interesting to see if others are interested and want to join in.
