    So let me get this straight. There's this new set of stringent rules about how people can't be made to live by stringent rules, threatened, scared, controlled, tracked, or prevented from seeing friends or family. And If you break these new rules you'll be put in prison. Sounds like the government wants a monopoly on being a controlling cunt. Best do as you're told peasants!

    Can we have a 'who is James Middleton?' Option?

    I look forwards to seeing this sensible law applied to non-white non-middle-class people.

    Sugar - More or Less R4

    I'm still of the opinion that something else has compromised our ability to process sugar or regulate its levels in blood. In the seventies and eighties everyone lived on starchy fast carb shit from Bejams, and if hungry later a nice sugary jam sandwich in white bread, washed down with gallons of orange squash. Fizzy drinks were still pretty prevalent and even delivered to the door. There's some idea diets back then were all good honest wholesome fodder cooked up from scratch by housewives but I'm not sure that's true diets were pretty shit and although nutirionally sub-optimal didn't seem to cause the same issues we have now. Overall I think reducing sugar consumption is no bad thing - although not if that means replacing them with shit like aspartame. Oddly I've always felt sugary sweets and things are more easily metabolised by kids, rather than adults, but that probably assumes they're running around outside all day.

    Extremely strange story...

    When special interest groups collide. Man openly trying to pick up women - evil beast, hang him say the feminists. Ah, but he's a muzzer. And the media don't want to show them in a bad light. Here's the cunning plan: arrest him for being a man but don't name him so the public will think he's a white British man. Only they won't. Because this happens every time and whenever a name is not released it is always going to be assumed to be a foreign name and when a description is not released it is always going to be assumed to mean that they aren't white. People aren't idiots; as the police and media routinely withhold these particular types of information then if the information is withheld with there being no specific reason for the withholding then the public will fill in the blanks. If there is no description given if a rapist then I will assume they aren't white. If a person guilty of a crime is not named, and there are no specific reasons for not so doing such as protecting the identity of the victim, then I will assume they have a foreign name. Just how stupid do the authorities think we are?

    Sugar - More or Less R4

    It's just schoolboy physics... Seemingly you can burn 400 calories an hour if you start shivering. You could be watching telly in a cold room drinking ice cold water and you're burning more energy than being down the gym... imho, the body was designed to be cold a lot of the time. People nowadays just don't get cold.

    Time and again the evidence seems to suggest that they think we are very stupid.

    Bloke sounds like a sex-pest and a massive twat to be honest. Anyone who calls themself a 'life coach' or a 'pick up artist' should be slung in jail on general principal IMO. There was a guy in the States who did this full time as well from what I remember, may have written a book? It's a bit sad really.

    Oh ffs Two disturbing aspects to this story. (1) The ridiculous leaving out someone's name / background if it's the "wrong" type. Complete arseholes. (2) Picking up members of the opposite sex is "predatory" - err...... And ?! I implied and shock horror - it was right It's very simple. If this was "Dave Smith" the So-Called BBC article would have "Dave Smith" in it. It doesn't. We all know why.

    This list is for relationships. Blowjobs are on the separate list for marriages.

    Mind even the non-stupid tend to let the authorities do their thinking for them. I was told it was alright for me to want a no deal Brexit because I was rich but that was being selfish and I should think of poor people. I gave the example of Tesco and how EU immigration has forced ordinary staff's pay and working conditions onto the floor whilst enriching (in the genuine sense) its senior management and owners. And how if the tap of labour oversupply from poorer countries was turned off then those very employees would be in a position to demand higher wages and regular contracts and be a lot better off. Whereas I, with my equity investments, would be losing money. So instead of being selfish I was actually being selfless. They were a clever person, thought about it, and agreed with me.

    Should Brexit be reneged upon, the contract between government and people is broken, there is no foundation for future laws. We have facsism and anarchy.

    I suspect those rules will only apply to a part of the population. Mainly those who have been in Britain for a very long time.

    Sugar - More or Less R4

    I have recommended this programme before but thought its analysis of the research on sugar deserved a specific thread. As background the government has been trumpeting that a greedy fet population is filling itself to the gunwales with sugar and it must stop it. Sugar means free sugars so packet sugar and that in sweets, cakes,bdrinks and fruit juices. Not that in whole fruit or vegetables such as onions. However a proper analysis reveals that consumption of free sugar per adult has been steadily, if slowly, falling since the 1960s (i.e. we are eating healthier) but we are now massively exceeding guidelines for one simple reason: the guideline intake was halved in 2015. Scientific studies have certainly correlated negative health impacts with excessive sugar consumption in children but similar studies in adults have shown no such link. So a reasonable conclusion from that for adults is: the average level of sugar consumption is not damaging so don't worry about it. He then puts these objective conclusions to Louis Levy, Head of Nutrition at Public Health England who attempts to defend their unsupported nanny state lecturing advice with no basis in science with all the suavity and grace of a ten year old who has just been caught red handed for copying their homework. If you like Alan Partridge when he's caught out then this on the money. There's also a very interesting but later on which is our nearest planet which I won't pre-empt. It's the best programme of the week despite its lurking on BBC Radio 4; it's presented by the non-BBC Tim Harford from the FT which helps it to not to contain the usual propaganda. I don't recall its ever mentioning Brexit or Donald Trump for example. https://www.bbc.co.uk/sounds/play/m0001y9p

    Sugar - More or Less R4

    The issue is industrial fake food that has had nutritionally beneficial ingredients replaced, largely at the behest of the bungling government because their previous "this food bad" model targeting saturated fat and cholesterol was bollocks. As an example (picked at random) compare the ingredients in this traditional Cherry Bakewell recipe with the ingredient list on the Mr Kipling version. https://thehappyfoodie.co.uk/recipes/cherry-bakewell The butter and eggs disappear, to be replaced by industrial seed oils. And those are the modern oils. The margarine that was pushed for years (and was in shit loads of processed food) was chock-a-block full of trans fats that proper fuck up your heart. Yum yum. I knew that trans fats fucked you up in the early 90s because I had the fortune to do a Biology degree and a professor that gave it to us straight. That the official health advice wasn't changed sooner is a scandal, but it's all just brushed under the carpet, and we're supposed to just blindly follow whatever over simplistic nonsense they want to peddle now. The tossers can jog on.

    Line Managers

    A good manager understands both the work you do and also what motivates you. They will be interested in their staff and this shows in that when they ask a personal question such as "Did you have a good Christmas?" they will be genuinely interested in the reply. A poor manager either won't ask or won't be interested in the reply.

    I am being a bit tongue in cheek with the locking them up idea though I do think that their behaviour is borderline. It's certainly not laudible and there will be an army of saddo's out there that think this guy is the nuts. A sound bollocking should suffice. Owen Jones should be thrown in jail, immediately. I'm not being tongue in cheek about that.

    Nearly all the items on the list would seem to apply to most employers and all governments. Proof positive that irony is not dead

    The utter fools think they can renege on their obligations and everybody who's been betrayed and the "other" people (remoaners) who have had to witness this betrayal can just carry on as if nothing has happened. WTF! That the two main political parties in the UK will not be ripped to shreds, that we will have members of the EU parliament that are anti EU... Christ even the monarchy will fall after this betrayal as all they seem to be worried about is fucking each other and spawning more benefit scroungers... on mass. They are truly deluded. It's un-fucking believable. If the best case scenario for your win is the utter destruction of your political viewpoint and the evisceration of your country. Then step back. FFS!
