    Kurt Barlow got a reaction from Turned Out Nice Again in Hagia Sophia   
    Coastal Mediterranean Turks (basically Muslim Greeks) are completely different from Anatolian Plateau Turks. 
    In the Cypriot community many Turkish Cypriots regret the Turkish invasion realising they are not the same people and they have more in common with Greek Cypriots.

    Kurt Barlow got a reaction from stokiescum in Super Saturday.   
    Went to Legoland on Saturday for HRH's benefit.. Although fairly quiet still a lot of queuing due to social distancing limiting numbers on the rides. 
    Didn't stay in the Legoland rip off hotel. Instead stayed at Toby Carvery Hotel in Old Windsor. Absolutely dead. Still managed to gorge myself on an £8.99 carvery meal! 
    This morning went on a short boat trip on the Thames. No queues and town fairly quiet.

    Kurt Barlow reacted to Great Guy in Hagia Sophia   
    Fair enough. The father of modern Turkey turned the HS into a museum about a hundred years ago.
     
    He had this to say about Islam.. 
    "absurd theology of an immoral Bedouin, is a rotting corpse which poisons our lives."
    It's hard not to think this is a backwards step for the world. On the one hand whitey is meant to feel guilty about stuff that happened 200 years ago while our kebab selling cousins are free to piss off the Christian world.

    A DOSBODDER who puts his or her, or whatever  heating on before the 1st November should be Keel hauled!

    Kurt Barlow reacted to Bedrag Justesen in Bank runs starting in China   
    I wouldn't worry about it.
    It's very unlikely anything happening that far away in China will have any impact in this country.

    The car looks like it has an obscured front windscreen - this is illegal in the UK.

    Where's that Chris Rock video?
    It's dead simple..
    If the police ask you to pull over...
    You do,
    Pull over at the nearest safe place to do so.
    Be polite and cooperative.
    You don't,
    Pick and choose a place that is convenient for you.
    Start giving the police gob.
     
    Now they decided not to pull over where indicated, were in a blacked out car so the police couldn't see it was a family and not filled with tooled up Yardies and started bobbing off.
    The police, in that situation, did remarkably well to deescalate as quickly as they did.
    The WPC was particularly professional I thought.

    Kurt Barlow reacted to Bear Hug in The two married black athletes stopped in their Mercedes   
    Agreed. And why the hell would anyone prefer to be stopped closer to their own house? Attention from neighbours would be the last thing most people would want unless the intention was to create maximum drama.

    I do.
    I have had enough of people saying this country is a racist hell hole when it's simply not true.
    I have also had enough of the media (BBC chief among them) reporting these incidents without stopping to question what they are being told.

    I hope the police gave them a stern lecture about driving a car from a company that historically exploited slave labour.
