    sleepwello'nights got a reaction from LC1 in Qanon: high level intel, AI or LARP?!   
    Coincidence or some trying to drown out the story by producing lots of noise.

    I picked up a hitch hiker once, he was surprised I'd stopped for him and asked, "how do you know I'm not a serial killer?"  to which I replied "Two serial killers in the same car, what are the odds on that?"
    Now where did I put those Fava beans?

    I think the reality is more that white British Londoners voted with their feet long ago. My family all moved out in the 70s. London was 8 million in 1950. Essentially all white. Maybe a couple of hundred thousand Jewish and Italian & Polish whites, but certainly over 7.5million white Brits. In 2011, more than half had left, with only 3.6 million remaining. Between the first racial census in 91 and 2011, a million left. And obviously these figures hide the fact that of those 3.6 million, most are those who, for whatever reason, money mostly, tolerate living in 'diverse' areas moved in later, knowing what it was like. The settled Londoners never asked for it or wanted it. The actual Londoners who can trace their roots back to the 50s or before probably don't even break a million anymore. 
     
    Remember also, when people said (of the 2015 election, at least) 'London proves people just need to be immersed in diversity to like it because UKIP only polled about 8% in London compared to nearer 14% in the South East excluding London" (UKIP is a defacto 'white' party. Under 2% of non-whites voted for it (or, about 0.3% of UKIPs vote came from non-whites. ie, statistically, nothing ) Bare in mind that white Britons in London are about 45% of the population, whereas the south east exc London, they are over 85%...well 8/45 is actually slightly more than 14/85...ie UKIP was slightly more popular in London amongst whites than it was outside London amongst whites...and thats despite all the young transplanted diversity fetishists moving in. It wouldnt surprise me if among 40+ white Londoners born in London, UKIP was the most popular party in London in 2015.

    That right there is the problem.  It’s like the emperors new clothes, in that some sections of people (I hesitate to call it the community) will try and shut down debate. You are not even allowed to discuss the changes you are witnessing.

    I'm beginning to wonder if the real aim is a set of rights for fat people similar to those of disabled people.
    So "Fat" becomes a protected characteristic and acquires rights.
    There has already been two examples this year: a clothes company being shouted out for charging more for big sizes (because they use more material) and backing down, and a call to allow fat people to travel to work later for some reason.
    So roll it forward and you have fat parking spaces, fat seats on planes (at no extra charge), employers having to give fat people extra "fat leave".
    You can just see it.
    Whereas other than the shouty blogger most fat people, if they were honest, would just rather not be fat.  So instead of going down this route start subsidising exercise classes and charge the NHS with treating fatness as an illness, which is going to be far cheaper than dealing with the medical effects of long term obesity.
    The very fat woman at work, who is nice and hard working but suffers no end of trouble from her weight (can't use stairs, can't walk more than a couple of hundred yards and now uses a stick, has heart trouble), has gone off sick for six months and may not be back.  She wants to work but her weight had just stopped her.
    That's the end result of fat acceptance propaganda; her quality of life is zero.
    And just for balance there is a much younger (she's mid fifties, he's early thirties) bloke in a similar position but without the health problems yet.
    The NHS should be treating their fatness as a disease as they used to do; a school friend and a friend's sister were both hospitalised for over a week in their early teens to try to work out what was wrong with them that was making them fat.
    By today's standards they weren't even particularly fat.

    On the subject of being uneducated: if you have been taught something that is wrong, you may be defined as educated, but you are still wrong.

    What can I say? Turns out I've never had an original thought in my life
    I honestly didn't know that someone had reached that conclusion before me, but I should have guessed!

    Post modernism has infested academia for many decades and affected many of those passing through who are now in positions of influence (the Establishment).  This helps to explain such dynamics as why our Establishment (political, media, intellectual, legal, etc) is so divorced from us "deplorables".  Theirs is essentially a varying form of post modern based agenda or at least outlook, something not shared by the "uneducated" mass.  Respect of, and trust and faith in, the Establishment is at an all time low.  Some may see this as due to inability and some due to corruption, but maybe it's partly due to ideology.       
    The threads on this board exemplify the disconnect and discontent such as: Annoyance with the progress and form of Brexit by an essentially anti Brexit (pro EU collective) Establishment (Brexit threads); Rejection of the BoE's unconventional monetary experiments and the destruction of self determination through saving and the increased reliance and use of debt (Deflation thread); Bias in the So-Called BBC, its virulent anti Brexit propaganda, its move away from fact based journalism, the exclusion of dissenting voices, and its pursuit of of a post modernist social re-engineering agenda (BBC threads); The annoyance at the media (biased and often fake news) attacks on Trump (Trump thread);  Annoyance on the treatment of immigration and refugees and the inactivity on child abuse gangs, including the subsequent "shut up" comment (immigration threads).  Others not particularly mentioned on this board include discontent with sentencing and court judgements, education syllabus up to university level, foreign aid budget and its deployment.      
    Maybe a bit light but sufficient versus the time required to progress further detail (with all those fancy words).

    I really dislike the re-emergence of the "Keep Calm and Carry on" poster that gained traction after 9/11.
    It comes from WWII, a time when the British people could be entirely confident that their government was doing everything possible to protect them and fight their enemy so the best contribution they could make was to keep the economy going by performing their jobs to the best of their abilities.
    Now it just means keeping a servile, obedient population, with said population ironically working calmly to fund the welfare benefits of the very people who are killing them.

    Watching ITV news. About twenty seconds about this explosion. Then went onto one year anniversary of Finsbury Park attack. Then went onto Syrians being forced to sell organs to raise money to get to Europe. Now onto Trump splitting up migrant families that invade America. 
    Honstly, fuck off ITV.

    sleepwello'nights got a reaction from Kilham in A new government income stream   
    It was only banned in the 1930s. We've discussed this topic before and the general consensus seems to be that criminalising it worsened the problems. Criminal gangs became involved in supplying it, the plants were selectively bred to contain higher concentrations of THC that evidence suggests caused psychological damage to users.
    Police officers I've spoken to say they aren't overly bothered by cannabis users, they have more problems with drunks.

    I watched this on the news yesterday. Seemingly we need a national Islamaphobia day to highlight the dangers of Islamaphobia.
    500 dead in Europe due to Islamic terrorism. Hundreds of thousands traumatised by Islamic terrorism, tens of thousands of European girls sexually abused by Muslims. Yet we're meant to have a national day to condemn Islamaphobia.
    I can't help thinking that the message the media are pushing does the exact opposite of what they want. If you had a kid at the Manchester Arena I think you'd be livid that you were meant to feel guilty for having negative feelings towards the ideology that killed 22 kids.

    We’re just doing the usual thing of copying verbatim any and every bit of modern trendy legislation the US passes.
    Legalising cannabis is a no-brainier..  it should have been done donkeys years ago.  
    I say that as a current non-user.

    sleepwello'nights reacted to Mental Floss in Tube incident   
    O.K. having slept on it I've considered what I originally posted and decided  I'll try again.
    What we're looking at here is not an accident. It's not some random event that could not have been predicted or mitigated. It's a result of policy. This is not a child sadly led astray by malign forces, he's an enemy combatant and a traitor. In times not so far back in history he would have been tried and summarily executed. Now? We're worrying about his mental health. The likes of Sadiq Khan seek to excuse the failure of policy with bollocks like "it's all part and parcel........." No it fucking isn't. 
    The architects and executors of this policy have no mandate to invite the world to these shores. There has been no debate and no plebiscite that determines that. The oft heard "well people could always vote against it" is nonsense. The body politic in the U.K is rotten and beholden to the ethos of globalism and multiculturalism. Innocent lives are literally now being sacrificed to these and yet all we hear is that opposition is "Racist". 
    Eventually there will be a reckoning.

    sleepwello'nights got a reaction from The Second Mouse in Impostors from TOS   
    Mostly; however he was most definitely a bully. Whenever engaged in a debate he would invariably resort to ad hominem attacks. Then blame his victim for making them even if they hadn't.  Then along would come his supporters, the first being Venger to join in and gang up on the poster whose views they didn't like.
    To give him his due he had a very firm grasp on the banking world from a high level. From an auditing perspective he must have been very unpopular with the partners from the firm he worked for. A lot of what he said opened my eyes and confirmed some of the tales a friend of mine related from his days as an investment banker.

    the So-Called BBC's reporting on the migrant boat that has docked in Spain made it sound like the circus had come to town. Plenty of positive statements about Spain's 'new socialist government' and negative ones about Italy's 'far right' politicians. I'm surprised they didn't ask for a national day of rejoicing. No mention of course of who pays for them, what they will do in Spain or how many more can be accepted. No mention either as to why the boat could not dock in Tunisia, which was the nearest safe country.
