    Depends on the old hag. If he isn't already in a relationship with that specific older woman, then no. However, wife goggles are a thing. Mother Nature has done the yin yang checks and balances thing rather well imo. If a woman in a ltr/marriage is reasonably agreeable company over the years, she will, to her man, never age because of his wife goggles. She might despair seeing yet another grey hair or wrinkle but he still sees the girl he fell in love with and to him she is just as young as when he first fell for her. If she is 50 and has been married for say 25 years, then she can stay with hubby and be his eternal 25yo hottie or she can find a new guy that will see her as a 50 yo woman.

    From /pol/, an interesting new propaganda from the Macron regime. New scandal developing YVs launched a crowd funding the boxer's legal fees, gov is using him an example and prosecuting him hard and fast, 100k donated in a few hours, everybody calling him a national hero -> gov shut down the crowd funding before it could reach more and seized the money, while also launching a counter-crowd funding in honor of policemen instead. Heavy msm propaganda of course, criticizing the first crowdfunding and propping up the gov-sponsored one. It's almost reached one million this morning. MSM already promoting it and calling it a success, drawing attention to the great numbers of contributors. During the night, donations kept being sent as regular intervals, phantom donations of 30 euros every second, even at 3 or 4am, etc. We stayed up all night hitting F5 to document it all. Crowd funding platform (which cooperated with the gov and belongs to a bank) tried to justify it as their servers processing the donations with delayed intervals, but this has been debunked, as we tried making random donations throughout the night and they showed up in real time. Google trends results also show the searches don't correspond to the action, with huge spikes for the boxer's and a flatline for the police's. They're using bots and phantom donations to control the narrative. They thought this would help them win the media war but it just further polarizes and exposes their bullshit. This could be the next big push we need but MSM will try to suppress it if exposed.

    Brexit Betrayal thread

    People voted Brexit because of FOM and all the other "left behind (the few)" reasons. It's not exactly as if things have got better - Brexit has shown the breakdown of democracy, blatant self interest and spin, unwarranted and false elitism, widespread arrogance and distain for the ordinary folk, a traitorous civil service, a voracious EU, a corrupt MSM, etc, etc, etc. You bet! This genie is well out of the bottle!

    Brexit Betrayal thread

    I think these rabid Remoaners have backed themselves into a corner. After years of vehemently opposing Brexit, having been taken in by Project Fear they are unable to admit the truth that it was all bullshit and that they are colossally gullible. Imagine having to climb down from such a position. It would involve such a gargantuan feast of your headwear that the very thought of the millinery mastication ahead of you would cause you to deny Jesus himself were he to stand before you. There are going to be some very serious mental breakdowns from Remainers after 29th March.

    Can anyone remember an occasion when someone was killed (even by the Police, like that scumbag Mark Duggan - gun found next to him wasn’t there?) when there was 100% conclusive agreement they were a wrong ‘un? You can be gunned down with your face hidden behind a gang coloured balaclava, knife down your pants, MS13 tattoos on your neck, and still the media will hint at your warm family nature and fondness for kittens.

    moped rider stabbed to death

    He was born and bred in London and was sent to live with his godparent in Nottingham because of the trouble he was getting into in London. However he had moved back to London 6 months ago and got involved/continued his gangsta lifestyle. He was a little scrote who, had he not been stabbed to death would most likely have been in prison within a year or two for stabbing someone else to death. I'm all out of sympathy for people like this. I'll save my sympathy for the innocent victims of the crimes perpetrated by his sort. Oh - and no surprise - his (absent) dad lives in Jamaica. Live by the sword, die by the sword.

    Successive European governments have been cowed by street protests / riots from immigrant communities and have changed their policies so as to benefit such communities. When you benefit one community others suffer and for forty years these have been: Working people - who are taxed more to pay for the largesse (nb - all working people - not just the inidigineous, though 16 hour tax credit nail bar people are not included) Indigineous people - who are discriminated against because of positive discrimination for non-indigineous peopls These protests are swerving politicians perspectives of these two groups from seeing them as uncomplaining beasts of burden who will just continue to fund every new policy and giveaway towards being groups in their own right that not only need consideration but should actually be given preferential treatment because they are either paying for everything or suffering as immigration reduces their quality of life. It has put the agenda of most ordinary working people upon the politicians' desk in France and rippling across Europe. It is the wealth from our labours that the state is spending so it can start both taking less and directing more back to those who work. If they can make Macron fall then a populist party will arise as in Italy that will actually serve its people rather than a globalist agenda. I'm 100% backing the motivation behind the protests and if criminal elements are taking advantage of them to loot stores then that still helps as it deprives the French government of revenue and puts more pressure upon them from corporations.

    When exactly did foreign leaders decide it was ok to tell other countries what to do? Even Japan is doing it now. https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-6575111/Shinzo-Abe-visit-puts-spotlight-Japan-s-concerns-Brexit.html Japanese PM Shinzo Abe today gave his full backing to Treason May's Brexit deal - as he said the 'whole world' wants to avoid a no deal. Mr Abe said Japan uses Britain as a 'gateway' to the EU and warned of the impact on jobs and firms of a no deal Brexit. In a rare boost for Mrs May, the Japanese PM hailed the progress Britain has made in securing a Brexit deal and gave his 'total support' to her deal. He told a press conference in No10 today that the 'world is watching' as Britain exits from the European Union. just fuck off and mind you own business

    Desperate hunger

    It all comes back around to housing and debt, bankers controlling politics and property owners wanting to keep their unearned wealth at the expense of their children. It's fuck all to do with food, for now at least.

    Desperate hunger

    If a decent element of benefits was paid in food stamps only redeemable for food at food banks rather than takeaways then people on benefits (excepting those suffering the dreadful administrative delay in receiving Universal Credit) would never go hungry; similarly if a portion were earmarked for rent (and only spendable on that) they wouldn't lose their home through not paying the rent, and if another portion were again only spendable on utility bills then nobody would go cold. This wouldn't leave a lot of personal choice in how their benefits money is spent but everybody would be housed, fed, and warm. Which is surely the aim rather than expecting people to all be able to budget perfectly and so achieve the same aim.

    The collapse of pub culture amongst adults owing to price (£4 / £5 a pint - this is no longer a cheap night out, Wetherspoons excepted) and tight drink drive laws must be playing a part. Most rural pubs around me are heavily reliant upon food sales and those which are still drinkers' pubs, usually in towns, tend to be 50:50 drinking and eating. The old pubs where everyone went out to have a laugh and a beer and sometimes get pissed in and with definitely no food are few in number; I can't actually think of any left down here. My idea of a great night out when I was late teens early twenties was pub crawling with my mates but those pubs no longer exist in that form and in the same numbers that they did; and for a kid doing A Levels drinking beer in most pubs is anyway unaffordable. I wouldn't have just started drinking at home by myself as it was the going out and having a laugh that the was big appeal rather than the alcohol. I think if I was 18 now then I'd be teetotal. Not through conscious choice but because the cheap Friday night down the pub getting pissed followed by a bag of chips isn't particularly an option these days.

    Desperate hunger

    BBC on about hunger, or something. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/education-46810707 This is the hungry person they choose for their picture: I don't think anyone in the UK is hungry. Sure, they might have a bit of an appetite, but that's just the body craving food, not the body needing food. [I'd argue that the big problem in the UK is that insufficient numbers of people are hungry -- or, rather, that people have built up a problem with feeling satiated, and just keep on eating -- for those individuals a bit of time without food (-> 'hunger') might do wonders.]

    moped rider stabbed to death

    I seem to recal they did an AR90 and the gearbox was exactly the same as the AR50, just a smaller bore. It was a straight swap, although I never knew of anyone who had done it. A Suzuki TS50ER was my ride. Initially a 65cc big bore kit. Then got my hands on a 75cc Malossi big bore kit that also came with a bigger carb. That and being a skinny lad meant I had the fastest moped in town. The Yamaha DTR125 was a doddle to derestrict. A washer in the exhuast held in with 3 spot welds, grind them off and ditch the washer. Then the power valve was locked in the closed position, 2 minutes with an allen key and you could lock it in the open position. Riding through London at night, Chelsea Bridge and then onto Heston services. Back then riding through London in the early hours on a bike was fab. They were fun times.

    I was in a bar in Berlin with a group of acquaintances before Christmas. German guy lamenting Brexit, saying "I really feel sorry for the British." Crocodile tears, I suspect, but anyway, an Englishman near me, intelligent guy and/but definite remain voter, surprised me by piping up with, "If there was another vote I'm pretty sure it would also be leave, only more so." The longer the shit-show goes on, the more people have the opportunity to see the EU and their supposed Westminster masters/mistresses for what they really are.

    moped rider stabbed to death

    Then you don’t understand that some 14 year olds are not “children”. They may be in a legal definition, but in physical and aggressive presence they are very much grown men. It seems clear this individual was involved in gangs to a degree (obviously now we will never find out the truth, just hear what an upstanding member of the local community he was). Who knows what damage he had inflicted on others, or would have done in the future. A 14 YO is very much capable of shooting or stabbing, and in some regards finds it easier. I was appalled at the death of Rhys Jones. Not this one.

    In that same DM story a “top policeman” says the “public should feel appalled by the murder”. Almost making us feel like we as a collective have done something wrong. I feel nothing of the sort, and I suspect neither do 99% of the country. Don’t even feel the slightest bit of surprise. Weary acceptance maybe...

    A thread crosser again to the moped stabby incident. https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2019/jan/08/boy-14-stabbed-to-death-in-north-east-london "three male suspects got out of the car, stabbed the boy and drove off. They offered no further description of the attackers." It's barely taken 5 news stories to more or less prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that your skin colour makes a huge difference to whether or not you are described in any wanted police releases or not. fucking ridiculous.

    The wave of cheap consumer goods from China made it uneconomical to repair a lot of goods My dad’s business was sales and repairs of white goods etc In the 80’s he charged £5 to replace the lead on a steam iron, early 2000’s you could buy a new steam iron in Tesco for £5 or a branded one from about £15 I still take great satisfaction in being able to fix items that others throw away that I learned from my dad and also do my own car servicing and as many repairs as possible

    Right To Repair

    In 1990 my uncle's old dishwasher packed up so he asked me to fix it. The impeller seal had gone and let water into the motor bearings which had rusted. Rang the manufacturer, impeller and seal kit £11.80 new motor £132. What about just the bearings I asked. Sorry sir but it's a sealed unit you can't dismantle it. When I told her they should have told me before I stripped it down she wasn't amused. I ordered the seal kit and rang my local bearing stockist with the part number. They had two that would fit, the cheap version the same as the original or a mega expensive waterproof version. Standard £1.68 Waterproof £2.89 I splashed out on the waterproof version, dishwasher is still working fine.

    Maybe. I'll stick with the point that, at a given age up to about 17, an average girl will be more mature (in a multitude of facets) than 'an average boy' of the same age, but I'll accept that it is a complex field that needs quite a lot of consideration in law. On a slightly different point, the thing that gets me (currently) is the criminalisation of mid-teens doing 'mid-teen stuff' with one another, and also (as far as I can tell) the gender difference in the way the law is applied. Case in point -- Girl and boy in my kids' school. Girl was sexually active. Boy was immature and didn't really know what went on besides what was in sex-ed lessons. Girl sends boy graphic porn photo of her bits. Boy shows his friend. Girl is victim, gets psych help. Boy is expelled and is currently in 'young offenders' sort of place while they sort out his punishment inc. sexual offenders list. Bonkers (IMO).

    I'd say that organisation is tapping into PETA levels of activist loon. Any reputable news outlet shouldn't be touching them with a bargepole. This appears to be the new BBC cause celebre, indirectly defending women who have killed their partners because they encountered some bastards in their life or their partner was one. That one above killed her other half with a steak knife then sat on him as he bled to death outside. I don't give a ha'penny fuck about her previous troubles, she's a murderous psycho who needs to go to jail. Plenty of other people have serious background issues yet they manage not to stab people to death or use someone's head as a piniata. If you really think about it, this line of 'journalism' from the So-Called BBC is absolutely fucking outrageous. I don't know how they keep getting away with it.

    To all NGD holder on this board - and I know there's quite a few of you here - I've joined the dark side yesterday and made NGD my biggest holding, and my only gold-price-leverage play (still holding WDO as an exploration play). We're in this boat together now I know the maths for NGD and I'm still terrified by it, but with Rainy River finally operating and still improving that's one huge question mark removed from the equation. Now it's simply the case of how much FCF can it generate, and it will be driven mostly by gold price, although some improvements in AISC will surely be possible as well. I think it should provide at least the same amount of leverage to gold price as Sibanye, without the added drama of the Lonmin deal, ongoing strike actions, MPs calling for suspension of licence etc. They should provide their outlook for 2019 probably next week. I'm expecting 300-330koz for RR and 60-70koz for New Afton, for a consolidated 360-400koz and AISC in range of 1050-1150U$. AISC is really a shot in the dark due to Rainy River still being improved, but it's also much more important than the production guidance. Each $50 change in AISC moves free cash flow generation by 18-20mln and boy do they need every cent of it. Anyway, if we're going down, we're going down together

    In my experience people can live with the certainty of misery. It is the misery of uncertainty that usually breaks the system. I suspect the French could probably just about cope with declining living standards and higher taxes . Nor on its own would authoritarian government or corrupt politicians put demonstrators on the streets. Macron's and the French establishments crime is to add extra insecurity to their lives by its rush to embrace neo liberal globalist reforms with all of the associated side effects. It is a vision that has even less going for it than old Soviet Marxist Leninism. All governments, even oppressive ones, need a minimum level of grudging buy in to the system from the mass of the population. Macron clearly cannot muster that at the moment. There is nothing more difficult to take in hand, more perilous to conduct, or more uncertain in its success, than to take the lead in the introduction of a new order of things. For the reformer has enemies in all those who profit by the old order, and only lukewarm defenders in all those who would profit by the new order, this lukewarmness arising partly from fear of their adversaries … and partly from the incredulity of mankind, who do not truly believe in anything new until they have had actual experience of it. — Niccolo Machiavelli

    Fake beggars

    I regard the majority of beggars as fake these days. When accosted by a beggar to donate a coin I just say sorry I only use cards for paying and that’s a lie because I’m a cash person. Happened last week in a small out of town shopping centre in Dumfries. When chatting he said he has mental health problems dealing with life. I said I can relate to that and that I went to the Samye ling Tibetan monastery to learn meditation. Fortunately I could pay the small fee for courses and accommodation. Suggested he phoned them because they are generally very sympathetic towards people who really want to turn their life around and if he pitched his tent there they may waive the fees, provide basic food and allow him to listen to the ideas of taking responsibility for one’s own mind. Also told him there are volunteer opportunities for working with bed and board provided. Thanks Mrs he said but I don’t think they’d understand my problems. Oh well, good luck in life then but try and think about this.....if you keep on doing what you’re doing you’ll keep on getting what you’re getting.
