  1. Why are the So-Called BBC such arseholes?

    I noticed that. It's also a misunderstanding (like Cathy's lobsters) about what he is actually saying. Peterson's message is not that the most important thing is that we should stand up straight or clean our rooms, it is that change cannot be effected without self discipline and that we should sort our own problems out before attempting to help others. Gandhi is thought to have put it a similar way: 'be the change that you want to see in the world'. I somehow don't think the So-Called BBC would call Gandhi's advice 'quaint'. The article also has a lot of subtle BBC putdowns, linking Peterson to all sorts of dodgy ideas and causes without directly saying he is part of them.
  2. IMO the best case scenario is an eventual balkanisation of the UK following some form of civil war. We can't go on importing millions of unproductive people in the way we are. The worst case is total collapse with native Britons having only two choices, stay and be killed or leave. Something like South Africa or Rhodesia.
  3. Mentally it's the same attitude as that refugees welcome woman who was raped by a refugee and didn't report it because she didn't want to appear racist. These people would rather the entirety of western Christian civilisation collapsed than that they should be thought to be 'racist' or 'nazi'.
  4. Tax avoidance - a moral duty?

    One possibility is to join and support the Taxpayers' Alliance, which campaigns for transparency and fair taxation. In the USA there is much more awareness of 'your tax dollars at work'. In the UK there is still the idea that there is such a thing as 'public' or 'government' money when there is no such thing, it all comes from us, the taxpayer, and nothing that any taxpayer gets from the government is 'free'.
  5. Apart from the odd one day off here and there, in 25 years' working life I've had two weeks off for a bad case of flu earlier this year, and a few years ago had to stay in bed for three weeks after picking up what was thought at first to be malaria in India, but fortunately turned out to be some unidentified viral illness (initially misdiagnosed by an Indian doctor who didn't seem to have much of a clue). Both times I literally could not drag myself out of bed except to go to the bog.
  6. Some civil service stuffed shirt was whining today about how the government campaigns against illegal immigration were 'reminiscent of the nazis'. 'Nazi' has just become like 'racist', ie, a catch all term for anything they don't like or anything which is even moderately opposed to total open borders globalism. It's an insult to those, including members of my own family, that gave their lives to defeat national socialism.
  7. Here we go...Chemical weapons kill 70 Syria

    I suspect a lot of this kind of thing is going on, without the 'marks' even really realising what is happening. Bribery and corruption is not always a case of passing envelopes stuffed with banknotes - that is why it is so insidious. Eg, Sir Ben Kingsley appeared in (presumably paid to do so) that recent Saudi funded film/exhibition that claimed the Muslims had invented most things before the west did. Now, Sir Ben probably just thought he was helping combat ignorance and Islamophobia, or something, but he's still taking the Saudi shilling, as far as I'm concerned.
  8. Veganism

    I think there are fallow crops like Alfalfa which have a fertilising effect on the soil, but I'm not sure. Perhaps if any Vegan farmers are reading this in their yurts on their solar powered laptops, they could comment?
  9. Tax avoidance - a moral duty?

    My method is to minimise income (to minimise tax payment), live frugally and buy second hand etc etc. I do think it's important to 'give something back' though, but do this by involvement in local charities, community projects, church etc. I'm currently involved in a local project that will hopefully be of great benefit to my village but which doesn't involve any state entities. It helps strengthen the community and reinforce localism which I think is important as the globalists try to turn the country into a dumping ground for the world's flotsam and jetsam.
  10. Screwing the young just a little bit more

    The rot set in earlier in most places I think. I recall in the seventies most places seemed very dirty, littered and with vandalised, run down areas. Lots of dogsh*t as well. Mainly due to the breakdown of public services caused by rampant unionism/socialism. The best period for civic pride was the interwar period and the late 40s to late 60s. If you look at pictures from that time things looked much smarter and well cared for. I think what is happening now is that globalisation is turning everywhere into Karachi. I recently visited an outer London suburb, one of those places with semi detached villas, parades of shops etc. Not a poor area at all. The high street is the usual collection of charity shops, nail bars, tattoo parlours, smelly takeaways etc. Nearly everyone is non white or eastern European. General look of neglect and chaos. It's what happens when you mix disparate, transient populations from all over the world with no common culture and no stake or pride in their society.
  11. Screwing the young just a little bit more

    What you have described is the plot of the very funny 1980s novel 'Office Life' by Keith Waterhouse. I'm giving the story away but basically it's about a washed up middle aged clerk who gets a job in a big government office which doesn't actually seem to do anything. Everyone is shuffling papers, doing filing and other busy-work but it's not clear what they're actually doing it for. The clerk and other colleagues become suspicious and begin to think that something dodgy is going on, that it's something to do with the Soviets and spying. However it turns out that it's just a complete make-work scheme in order to keep people off the dole and give them something to do. IMO the expansion of higher education under the Tories in 1993 was absolutely done to keep young people off the dole and to create a massive higher education service sector. I think earlier expansionism in the sector, eg the Butler Act (?) of 1963 which led to the growth of the 'white tile' universities had elements of this but was also about increasing the UK's skills base.
  12. Yes, I think an armed EU police force (like the FBI in the USA) is quite a possibility, particularly as problems with migrants (and the 'far right' who dare question the EU) increase.
  13. Everyday Feminism - lunatic SJWness

    True. Same with 'gay', 'straight' and 'bi'. The ancient Greeks as far as I understand it had no such concepts, and happily shagged anyone and everything.
  14. Most attractive woman on the planet?

    There seems to be a triumvirate of looks, talent and political beliefs for female fame, in most cases 2 of the 3 are required but sometimes just one will do. I would say Miss Watson just scrapes in with 1.5 on the scale (not great in looks or talent but this is outweighed by outspoken 'correct' political beliefs.)
  15. Everyday Feminism - lunatic SJWness

    I can foresee the next storm in a teacup (or should that be mooncup?) for the feminists will be use of the term 'identify'. Eg, if one 'identifies' as female, that means one is female and is no different to someone who happens to have been born with a uterus. So why should people be discriminated against by use of the term 'identify' which implies they are not, in fact, real women?
