    Macron - how long before wheels fall off

    I agree but if all the GJs can offer is disruptions and violent protest, this will just lead to authoritarian clampdown by the government (which will be presented by the media in some sort of acceptable form for SJWs/globalists/Eurocrats).

    Macron - how long before wheels fall off

    This may be an unpopular opinion but I am not 100% sure about the gilets-jaunes. The problem as I see it is that they don't seem to have any official stated objectives, which means that even if it wants to, it is difficult for the lawful government to negotiate with them, and this also makes it easier for anarchists, trouble makers etc to get involved in rioting (we do not seem to have had the radical muslims involved yet, however).

    Fake beggars

    They're moving the goalposts again. 'Complex lives' could mean anyone. Just like 'homeless' which used to mean sleeping rough, or maybe in a Salvation Army dosshouse at best. Now it's just a vague catch-all term, including people in what would one have been acceptable dwellings such as bed and breakfast houses. Same with the phrase 'fleeing poverty' which they are using to make economic migrants sound like they're running for their lives.

    Why are the So-Called BBC such arseholes?

    It's very much DOSBODS TV. Before the alt-right or Youtube was known, Peter Whittle's New Culture Forum was one of the few culturally conservative media organisations around. I hope now that he's stood down from UKIP that he can do more stuff like this.

    U R Divorced

    People say the saudis are backward, but their women have always been able to watch films in widescreen.

    Why are the So-Called BBC such arseholes?

    This is an excellent talk with Peter Whittle, late of UKIP, and Robin Aitken, former BBC reporter, about how BBC bias works. In fact it really sums up the whole cultural marxist/institutional leftism situation in the UK quite well.

    Hey Mr Pin, that's a great clock! Wanna come to the White House and show it to me? BTW Michelle says to make it clear I said 'clock' and not anything else. Love, Barry O.

    One way to reduce wastage would be to have component systems in most appliances. Eg, most of a washing machine is just a metal drum and casing. If all the circuitry etc could just be removed and replaced with some sort of cassette system, it would help the environment enormously. This has been the norm with hi-fi systems for decades. Bicycles too, if you think about it. Very few people would dump an entire bike if just the front wheel needed to be replaced.

    Macron - how long before wheels fall off

    I suspect what Micron (and whatever powers are actually behind his throne) is really afraid of is having to announce a GE as a national vote of confidence, like Heath did in the early 70s, because he knows that this time he'll probably lose and Le Pen will get in.

    Live of the working class in Victorian England

    Welfare is one area where the supposedly 'progressive' left are actually very regressive and conservative, but they can't see it. Eg, I studied 'Social Policy' as a subsidiary at university and we were constantly told how awful things were in the 19th century and how welfare was so important because without it, we would all end up dead in gutters like Victorian urchins. The concept of welfare dependency or over-generous benefits simply did not arise, and when one undergraduate mentioned it in a tutorial, I remember him being ganged up on by other students.

    Macron - how long before wheels fall off

    Do we know what Le Pen's views on all this are? The government has accused her of encouraging the protests but far-lefties have also been involved, apparently. Most of the articles and vids are in French and I'm having trouble understanding them with my GCSE French.

    moped rider stabbed to death

    My guess is it was because he queered the pitch of some local Mr Big, being from Nottingham he may not have realised he was a very small fish in a very big pond. He may even have stolen the moped from some local druglord or his moll, etc. Alternatively he might just have been in the wrong place at the wrong time - crashed the moped into some gangster's car and then sucked his teeth at him, or something.

    Right To Repair

    Printers mostly use the 'Gilette' business model of making the initial outlay cheap (ie, the printer unit or the razor handle) but the replacement cartridges (or blades) expensive. The customer is tied in to constant replacement. Ker-ching! It's been working since disposable razor blades were invented c.1910.

    Right To Repair

    I had a breadmaker which had served me well for years. Then one day it went wrong and I'm pretty sure all it was was the rubber drive band had snapped. However, I couldn't get it open because the whole unit had been riveted together instead of screwed. Had it been screwed I could have just opened the casing and replaced the drive band. Instead the whole thing had to be binned. I did manage to save the removable baking tin however and I now make bread by hand instead, and bake it in that tin.

    Are prisons becoming too soft..?

    I read somewhere that many habitual criminals don't mind prison, some even like it because it gives them a chance to get away from gangland feuds on their estates and frees them from nagging mothers/wives/girlfriends. Sort of a 'retreat' or 'rest cure' for them.
