    Dig deeper and I reckon youll find most of them have a lot more in common than just the colour of their skin. School, University, boards of other organisations.... And frankly, that is the real Diversity Scandal, and one which they dont even acknowledge exists, far less talk about addressing.

    To be fair if you base your life choices on what some randoms on a forum say, you are doing something very wrong. I'm still hopeful of a crash even though I bought 6 years ago. The longer the plates spin, the bigger the crash. And eventually millennials are going to be so sick of it that they'll do something about it, it's a given, as always the only question is when.

    HPCers have made a terrible mistake if they have not bought. And you were the one of the chief people involved in getting people who correctly stated that house prices would not fall banned for being a troll. You are directly partially responsible for thousands of people losing an awful lot of money. After more than a decade of being incorrect I would have thought you should have some humility now. I would have thought you should have worked it now, asset prices will continue to rise in a long-term near ZIRP environment. You are a very bad person. Luckily I didn't listen to your like and have lots of houses. My place in Germany increased in value by about 75 thousand euros last year alone.

    I suppose you could turn that around and say why should pro islamists giving an award to a pro islamist be news worthy? Or why those pro man made climate change giving an award to someone who is pro man made climate change newsworthy? Speaking of which notice how it is man made climate change - odd how the woke SJW men haters have not removed 'man' from that? Well, not odd at all really. Just predictable and sexist.

    It isn't tax as such, as it all goes to the retailers (who didn't want this system btw). It's essentially a government setting a floor price for a commodity, which is a worrying precedent indeed. The end result will be more home brewing. There is no point in putting minimum pricing on it if you're not going to also fight the causes that lead to people drinking to excess. Until Boris does the same in about 2022.

    Thots are victims too!

    So reading between the lines they're all wealthy Arabs from Dubai pestering white women for sex. There's the line the So-Called BBC were too scared to add. Makes you wonder if these innocent Arab princes over here in their supercars to escape the "heat of the desert in summer" ( © MSM ) are actually here to shag white girls.

    It is. Make it so that you cannot exist without taking on debt. Car - debt. House - debt. Phone - debt. Education - debt. Make people feel that they are succeeding by inflating asset prices, even though most will see no difference as they have no increased disposal income from the asset inflation due to the debt servicing. Crash every so often to enable the 1% to pick up distressed assets. It;s been wokring brilliantly for 50 years.

    Thots are victims too!

    The humanity! Is there no limit to the perfidy of men!? Influencers 'being offered thousands for sex' https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-50828386 "Isabel" said she was first approached on Instagram by a man 10 years older than her, after she had competed in a TV talent show. "I was initially offered designer handbags. He had a fetish for being financially dominant so he would get a sexual kick out of spending hundreds and hundreds of pounds on bags for me," she explained. "I would also struggle to keep my followers engaged online. So I guess that's why I accepted the offer. " She said they did not meet for 18 months and spoke every day, so she was excited to meet him. "He was really pleasant when I was there. At dinner we started drinking and he was asking about my finances - I explained I was in £5,000 of debt. He said: 'Have sex with me and I'll give you double that'." "Isabel" said she went up to his hotel room and went through with it. "I felt a kind of a mixture of degraded, really annoyed at myself, violated." But she insists it is not a form of prostitution: "It is a targeted relationship that progresses over time... Whereas I think prostitution is when you agree a fee with a stranger." [...] The feminist group, Object, which campaigns against the sexual objectification of women, said it understood why women accepted the "hugely tempting" offers. Heather Brunskell-Evans said: "The women who are involved with this will not want to hear the word prostitution. The reality is that they are selling their bodies for money. "The groomers are offering the woman everything she needs to be a success at her job as an influencer, but ultimately it's exploitation, and that woman will have to do things for that money that she doesn't want to associate herself with, that make her feel shamed." So, according to the So-Called BBC, even grown-ass women running businesses have zero agency. Think about that.

    Fuck me

    An estimated one in seven people living in the UK today was born outside the country. The majority of these are from outside Europe, often from countries with historical links to the UK. 1 in 7 is ~15% of the population. For a country with a lucrative in 'work' benefit' system and expensive, free at the point of use public services like education and health, those figures are *FUCKING INSANE* If UKGOV were charging migrants for all public services and looking to turn a profit - say 30% - then the UK would be running huge budget surpluses. If people want to come to the UK then fine, let them. BUT CHARGE THEM THRU THE FUCKING NOSE FFS 15% if the official counted figures. Id guess theres a few million who dont make those figures. So, that figure is going to be getting towards ~20% of UK pop. And if the UK pop is somewhere between 70-75m - and we really dont know - then we can can put that 15-20% figure in millions - ~11-15m migrants living in the UK, putting my ~10m EUers in play ... if the So-Called BBC was so proud of migrants why not change the headline to - ~13m Million migrants in UK, mainly dependent on state benefits and free public services

    New labour leader

    The left are in an outrage quagmire of their own making, it really is fantastic. Not a single Labour candidate can say anything without someone, somewhere being outraged. The trick to being elected is really rather simple - good, simple, policies that a broad cross section of people can understand and vote for and don't worry about the outrage porn. That's pretty much it. As Boris has proved: get the policies right and people will vote for you.

    Question Time

    Fox is from an acting dynasty so isn't short of a few bob and has reached a point he refuses to self-censor. He's becoming a bit of a legend and I think what spurred him on was his recent divorce from Billy Piper where he saw first hand how fathers are treated like second class citizens, and it was only his deep pockets that gave him a chance.

    I have friends that live in Missouri. Family. Two kids. The mother is a stay at home mum. Dad has OK job but not a really high earner or anything. The quality of life they have, i.e. the size and quality of the house, the space around it, is night and day compared to these cramped UK slaveboxes.

    Every single bird I've known, including few of my ex's, who moved to London in their early 20s to "live the London life" became a complete party girl sluts fucking every tom dick and harry. Big cities ruin women. Huge red flag to me if a bird tells me she's lived in London. How the fuck you can then be a trad wife with your beta husband after getting smashed in for the best part of the decade by countless blokes i'm unable to square.

    Has the last bear turned?

    Personally I've been shocked at how quickly people have taken 35 year mortgages as being 'the norm'. I fucked up massively by not buying in 2013 when prices in NI had reached their bottom (I never thought they were 'cheap' as such even back then), but can't do anything about that now. I don't think things will crash without an external emergency like the global financial crisis. People are obesssed with housing in this country and even more so obsessed about living in the 'fasionable' areas, so once the hive mind decides somewhere is fasionable prices go way up very quickly. I'll buy somewhere eventually but most of what I see coming on the market is total dross. And as someone who rents for £500 a month, and has no rates bill, upkeep, or commute costs, it's not a terribly attractive proposition to spend the best part of 200K on something where I'll then have to pay upkeep, council tax, commute costs....and won't even have a living room as big as what I currently have. But either way I think I'll have to get something bought soon as I'll be 40 before you know it. But fuck me so many of these houses are claustraphobic horrible little places.

    What are the odds?

    Strang thing happened today. Day off so went out to carry out some errands. Turned left onto a 2 lane section to see a woman had turned in from the other end and was coming down it the wrong way. It’s a very short section of road so everyone stopped to wait for her to reverse and go round to the other side of the central reservation and on to the correct side of the road. She didn’t even look bothered. If it was me I’d have been bloody mortified. I then popped to Screwfix and went along the industrial estate which is a 2 lane one way system. Inside lane often has HGVs parked up so in I’m in the outside lane only to have an Open Reach van heading towards me driving the wrong way. I headed straight for him, stopped and then he drove up on to the grass. Words were exchanged then he drove behind me into the path of other oncoming vehicles. It was nuts. I don’t think I’ve ever seen anyone driving the wrong way down a road and today it happened twice within 30 minutes. Should I buy a lottery ticket?

    Dont ask a GP then FFS. I think you are all falling for this medical Drs are clever and the genius of scientific medicine guff that coems from the many millions employed in healthcare. In the UK, the NHS works by having an idiot (GP) exhaust his random knowledge before you are passed to specialist, who may or may not the correct diagnosis n procedure to treat your ailment. MRI, CT and what not are very limited, being best used to look for specific things. The problem with *all* healthcare system/people is they spend too much time looking at poorly people, whether they are or not. If they spent 30% of the time looking at healthy people they might be able to progress medical science for the greater good. Most medical progress and activity is bunkum. Dont smoke. Dont eat too much. Make sure you are are moderately active, up and moving, for at least 2h.

    Countdown to Brexit thread

    Quite. I’ve had occasion to walk past him a few times, nothing to do with parliament or Brexit, but he shouts with his megaphone all the same. Very unpleasant, especially if you are just going about your business and want nothing to do with him or his message. Should’ve had his collar felt for disturbing the peace a long time ago and had it made quite clear he was on a ramp to heavier and heavier sanctions and punishments if he persisted.

    of course, when I say "french" i'm using the term liberally as it is really a revolt of immigrant workers of the Paris transport system who are asked to work a bit beyond 55 years before drawing their pensions. As a member of Macron's own party described it "an islamo-arabic rebellion". It certainly highlights the lie of bringing in huge amounts of third worlders "to do the jobs locals don't want" when 75% don't work and the remainder want a cushy job.

    #TradWife

    This is a great quote.I must have had ~15 jobs in my life. And in EVERY one I can state that the wimmin do as little work as possible. If talking, bitching, moaning, crying, going on the sick, going on maternity and looking at their phones was what they were employed to do, they were ace employees. It is way way beyond my pea-size brain to understand why any company employs them. I work in a warehouse in my latest job. Sometimes I kneel down to tape the boxes up. A few months ago a wommin (around 55? hard to tell, they all look so fucking rough) said to me for all to hear "that's what I like to see, a man on his knees." Can you imagine the unholy shitstorm I would have brought down upon my unworthy head if I had said that to a wommin in the same position? (not that I would ever be able to, because being in that position would involve actually DOING SOME WORK).

    Well I’m a “motorist” too, but unlike 90% of other drivers I observe, I don’t speed in built up areas, don’t use my mobile phone when driving, don’t wait at the (often wrong) side of the road at night with my headlamps on, don’t hog the outside or even middle lane on motorways, don’t park across white lines in car parks because I’m too lazy to do one more shunt back and forth to put the car properly in the box. I do however, move from the 2nd lane of a motorway to the 3rd lane if someone is indicating to come out of the 1st lane to the 2nd, to make room for them, if I’m in queuing traffic and there’s a crossroads, I leave a gap so that anyone wanting to come out of the side road to turn right can do so and isn’t blocked in. In a stream of traffic I do let people coming the other way turn (their) right in front of me as it helps them out and doesn’t cost me anything, but again these are behaviours that I seldom see these days from others. Could be these people are in the right and I’m the inconsiderate arsehole, as you suggest, but somehow I don’t think so. I’m probably guilty of being a grumpy old man, but as an ex Formula Ford racing driver, ex rally driver and member of the IAM, I don’t think Im guilty of being a bad driver. Im done with this thread now as I can no longer be arsed arguing with folk who use the fact that they break the law to claim the moral high ground. Happy motoring! 🚗🚙

    Back when I was a journalist I used to get a lot of press releases from the Welsh 'government' and most of it was similar stuff. Basically trying to out-nanny-state the English (and that takes some doing) and justify their existence and jobs in their big shiny 'Parliament' with the big Welsh words all over it. All done in a smug 'look how progressive and socially aware we are' type way.

    Having seen first hand how limits are set, safety is at best a secondary factor. It is mostly about the council and police appeasing vocal silver-haired moan bags. You can set your local limits at anything you want. Create a village committee (captain Mainwaring style). Appoint a “road safety officer”.. bully the police and council.. eventually they will cave in and agree even if your demands aren’t in line with government guidance and even if the road has a perfect safety record (looking at you Warrington Borough Council). Basically.. it’s all b****ks.. but it gives jobsworths something easy to do, doesn’t require the council to spend any money, and raises a bit of cash for Sajid Javid.

    The number of companies isn't relevant (other than needing competition in the market). If Flybe go there'll be the same number of airports, planes and pilots meeting the same demand from the same number of customers.
