    A bit of a buzz about this year's Hafod Hardware advert.  Even the American press are talking about it.  £100 to make versus the £7m John Lewis spent but with more heart.

    It simply is a delight at this time of year.  Something to be enjoyed at face value, without picking at it or using it as yet another platform.  Something simply and innocently to feel good about.  And I do.
    But, and alas these days there's always a but, I made the mistake of reading the Guardian comments.  The most poignant illustration of the toxicity of a section of that group of posters (others available).  Mostly entitled media luvies.  Something to always be remembered.
    But back in the beautiful life affirming light - my thanks to the posters.  Very peaceful and seasonal wishes to them all and everyone else living under a dark cloud.
    I resolve to walk in the light.
    PS:  The Guardian comments if you must.  They start off nice....  https://www.theguardian.com/tv-and-radio/2019/dec/04/the-100-christmas-ad-that-blows-john-lewis-out-of-the-water

    The way to win a case like that is to say that 80% of damages will go to a childrens charity. Go after a smaller sum, such as 5 million, to reflect potential loss of earnings plus loss of reputation.
    Jury instantly swayed to your side.
     
    edit: forgot to answer the bit in bold.  Doesn't matter.  Once you have the judgement, then you enter into the global hunt and can sell the debt onto someone else to chase.  Plus, can you imagine Musk never being able to enter the UK for fear of action?  Nah, there would be some payment.

    Oil. Once that becomes worthless - Saint Greta isn’t entirely unwelcome in my world view - they will likely bomb, stab and rape themselves back to the Stone Age let alone Biblical times.

    When I first saw Kolya I thought he was a possibly dangerous random loon leading baldy on.
    The graveyard reveal was so so sad....

    False allegations are so, so common. I've been on the end of them (dv not rape) and know many, many others who have as well (through a support group I used to go to). 
    The problem is as long as no action is taken against the false accusers, it's going to continue, and keep escalating, so not only do many innocent men get completely shafted, but real victims also suffer for it as people become far less inclined to believe them. I've no idea what the political thinking behind encouraging false allegations is, or whether the people who make the decisions to do nothing about it genuinely are that dim that they can't see the consequences. Broadly, I think it's just that the people who could be clamping down on false allegations are just too lazy and self-interested to do so - it would be difficult to do because of the batshit mental self-interest pressure groups, so they don't bother doing it.

    Sadly that's true, nobody is interested in your innocence, only your guilt.

    Interesting I wonder which vested interest is behind it 
    To be honest all schools should be private paid for by parents not the state

    montecristo reacted to hapax legomenon in Greta   
    I park near Harrogate Grammar School most days. Can barely move for kids being dropped off by their parents in their 4x4s. If I was to compare my carbon footprint at 15 (no electronic devices, walked or cycled everywhere, no Nandos or McDs, no foreign hols) with the average kid today the difference would be immense. And yet apparently I am looking to them for hope as I have somehow failed them.

    I would go further. I sincerely hope that Mr David Merritt googles his name and comes across our 'toxic' commentary on his behaviour in the wake of his son's death. He needs help. I've seen this phenomenon before in the lives of cult members when the whole scam goes pear-shaped.
    They don't focus on the real perpetrators of the tragedy - the man behind the curtain, if you allow a Wizard of Oz analogy.
    Instead, survival, for the sake of your mental health, becomes an issue of doubling down - the system was perfect, the plan was perfect. It's just that the people within didn't work hard enough. Which means that for David Merritt; although he managed to convince his son that his was the right path; he ultimately failed to teach him how to convince others of its virtue. 
    To follow the cult's twisted logic to its inevitable conclusion; that failure, on David Merritt's part, cost his son his life.
    Which is why those of us who dare preach heresy must be recast as jack-booted thugs who can barely conceal their contempt for education. Our hate crime is to have merely pointed out that in comparison to eternal paradise, improved educational opportunities hold little attraction to those who have already chosen the path of violent death to achieve the former. It is, as others have eloquently stated elsewhere; like turning up with a knife to a narwhal tusk fight.
    So we must be silenced. In the vain hope that removing the calm voice of logic will quieten down the internal screams of guilt. Unfortunately, that strategy is likely to be as effective as teaching poetry to violent jihadis.

    Wow. No school. Able to throw a mean face to all who annnoy. Travel via yachts accross the worlds seas.
    Wish I had that during my time as a teen. Milk it while they like you girl. When its over. Come and join us.
    See the world as it is for the rest of us plebs once the ride is over.

    Exactly what a Marxist would say.  The Christian churches are empty and the mosques are full in the West.  The Catholic church was  the No.1 target for Marxists.  Mission accomplie. 
    You can preach as much humanism bollix as you want but it won't save you in a European Caliphate.  You may be praying for Christian crusade eventually.

    Usually a granny mistaking the brake for the accelerator. Very similar happened here not too long ago though no kids died.
    If it's some bloke who's done a runner I hope they find him and slice his gonads off.

    Two outcomes:
    Bloke private sector - you get up n go.
    Woman, public sector - you have a week off.

    montecristo reacted to Frank Hovis in Epstein   
    There's no suggestion of rape but she was powerless and penniless in a foreign country and I would presume from an unstable family background or she wouldn't have taken the job in the first place.
    I heard an ex-colleague just left a woman in France because she wouldn't have sex with him.  Nothing physical or nasty; he just coldly left leaving her with her passport and possessions but she then had to sort out getting back and she didn't have much money.
    That's not a nice position to be in as an adult but as a seventeen year old she would have been in fear of just being turned out of the front door there and then so would have complied with orders.
    It's the Ghislaine role that really enabled it; I read a piece from one of the West's victims, who survived, about how she had only accepted a lift in the West's Ford Pop because there was a woman in the fornt seat so she felt safe.  Presumably a lot of other victims felt the same.  Ditto the Moors Murderers; Hindley even knew the children beforehand.  I am very much not suggesting Maxwell murdered anybody but what she did do was bad enough.

    Fair comment if you are including atheists also.  That Stalin, Mao and Pol Pot caused a bit of havoc too.
