  1. There is some amazing talent contributing to Dosbods. Many make me laugh - I'm talking proper Terry Wogan-type wheezing - and many make me think and ponder and wonder about so many and diverse issues. I get perspectives on matters I never thought existed. The banter and discussion seems almost unique to the internet in that it's done in such a respectful way. Arguments sail back and forth, points are scored and then lost. The debating can be incisive and no-holds-barred. All views are welcomed and can be made without fear. I'm surprised that speech writers, or those requiring speeches to be compiled for them, haven't come calling looking for input from members of Team Dosbods. I'm being serious. There is a pool here who could construct speeches and arguments that would crush all comers. For example, anyone in parliament wishing to build a case against the return to Britain of the ISIS supporter we're talking about on this thread could do worse than use the 11 pages of cogent discussion so far. If I had aspirations of becoming an MP, I'd need Dosbods behind me for my speeches. But being an MP will never happen for me, because I'm far too shy. There are others on this site who would be more than capable, though.
  2. What do they mean the UK possibly has a duty to her?! A quick look at the online Oxford Living Dictionaries site brought up a bonzer example of how you might use the word "duty" in a sentence. It's this: "she was determined to do her duty as a citizen". Instant fail on her part. What duty has she done for the good of Britain? To prove I'm not speaking BS, here's the link: https://en.oxforddictionaries.com/definition/duty Duty has to be a two-way street. Try asking our declining numbers of veterans from World War II about duty...
  3. Let's try it and find out which country steps in that values her contribution to their society. But, here's another argument - you could say we wouldn't be removing her British citizenship, she renounced it when she left under her own free will to do what she did.

    Hungary for sex? Get paid for fourplay.

    There's so much in that article that beggars belief - great find, btw. I've only skimmed it, but this jumped right out of the screen. "Over the years, the billionaire has assembled some 226 "reliable allies" in the European Parliament to promote his vision of a brave new Europe. This cozy arrangement allowed his Open Society European Policy Institute (OSEPI), the EU policy arm of Open Society Foundations, to meet with members of the European Commission on 65 separate occasions last year alone." The author of your piece then says, "It's probably safe to say that those closed-door meetings had no small impact on the political landscape of Europe." All these meetings - with the doors closed. FFS! I have all but worn my teeth away with the gnashing I've done. And the EU wonders why we despise it?
  5. She says, "I'm not the same silly little 15-year-old schoolgirl who ran away from Bethnal Green four years ago." So silly at 15 that she had the nous to use her older sister's passport to travel to Syria. She was sooo silly that she and her pals managed to fly from Gatwick Airport to Turkey after telling their parents they were "going out for the day". Soooo silly that they were able to find a way of crossing the border into Syria. Hold on a minute, that doesn't sound silly to me. Ah, neither does her sister think that she's silly. Shamima's sister, Renu Begum, said (in February, 2015) she hoped her sister had gone to Syria to bring back another girl from Bethnal Green Academy who went there in December. Ms Begum said, "We don't want her to do anything stupid - she is a sensible girl." Source for the above: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-31581739
  6. A few observations: Only a couple of weeks ago, @One percent posted about "Terrorism, a game for all the family". It was an article about a 30-year-old woman who "gloated that the Westminster attack was 'the decree of Allah'." From north London, she was jailed for 19 months alongside her brother and husband, who shared sickening messages in a family WhatsApp group. The judge jailed her brother for 25 months and her husband for 15 months. Two brothers from the family had travelled to Syria in early 2015 and were believed to have died in the fighting. The Old Bailey heard that the family downloaded and shared ISIS material while bragging: 'We are embedded in their societies, we are the enemy within.' I still shiver at the underlined bit in bold. On this thread, we're discussing a woman who actually went to join ISIS - not merely someone who shared WhatsApp messages - and wants to come back to the UK. A woman who has, as @Frank Hovis pointed out at the start of this thread, "no regrets" about what she did. Not only that, but seeing heads in bins did not faze her. Who here among us doesn't remember the pre-Christmas discussion on Dosbods about the Scandinavian girls who were beheaded in Morocco? I remember it only too well because of the horrendous nature of what was put under our microscope. Some had watched the video of one of the beheadings. Gruesome beyond belief is how those who watched it would have described it. I didn't watch it (I heeded the warnings about what cannot be unseen), but read the description of the beheading. I'm still shaken by it. A frightened girl calling for her mother as she was being hacked by a knife. I wasn't there, I can only go on what I read. But it certainly "fazed" me - and that's putting it blindingly mildly. Do we really want someone not fazed by such horror walking among us?

    After last night posting the Goring quote, I found this photo tonight. I'm not sure what you call it - synchronicity? The picture is part of an online article in today's Daily Mail about a new book featuring The Great Escape. Source: https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-6700415/How-managed-Great-Escape-Nazi-POW-camp-1944.html Again, I thought the image relevant to this thread. Why? Look closely at the date on the headstones of three men murdered on Hitler's orders after escaping from Stalag Luft III. Let it sink in. Their battle was ended. We're still fighting ours. And we all know what we're fighting against.

    The one on the far left looks really handy for cleaning alloy wheels. It'd get in about all the brake gunk in the narrow, fiddly bits. Is the one second from right for toasting marshmallows?

    Feast your eyes on this, Dosbodders! I stumbled upon a quote made by Fat Herman, during WWII which I wanted to share. And I think this is possibly the best place for it bearing in mind what's going on. Hermann Göring was Commander-in-Chief of the Luftwaffe, President of the Reichstag, Prime Minister of Prussia and Hitler's designated successor. Apparently, he often chastised German aircraft manufacturers and, at one address, he commented, "In 1940 I could at least fly as far as Glasgow in most of my aircraft, but not now! It makes me furious when I see the Mosquito. I turn green and yellow with envy. The British, who can afford aluminium better than we can, knock together a beautiful wooden aircraft that every piano factory over there is building, and they give it a speed which they have now increased yet again. What do you make of that? There is nothing the British do not have. They have the geniuses and we have the nincompoops. After the war is over I'm going to buy a British radio set – then at least I'll own something that has always worked!" Source: https://www.baesystems.com/en/heritage/de-havilland-mosquito Did he realise all those years ago he had penned a Brexit rallying cry for the UK? Makes me sad to think what Britain has become. But there's still hope.

    Blackface everywhere!

    You gorra laugh. You really have to. I've heard commenters on here speaking about the stupid left eating itself. Well, it's a gorge-fest. Let's take a trip back to the aftermath of the atrocious terrorist attack on innocent children at the Manchester Arena in May, 2017. One headline (from Metro) will suffice: Katy Perry defends ‘no barriers no borders’ comment following Manchester terror attack. Her solution to extremists murdering children: let them all in! Perry said (quote from Rolling Stone): "I think that the greatest thing we can do is just unite and love on each other. No barriers, no borders, we all just need to co-exist.” How's this co-existing going when you wear the wrong shoes, Katy?

    Isn't that a bit like having an electric car in that you can only travel as far as the cable will allow you? Maybe I don't understand electric cars. Or 240volt sex toys.

    Yeah, but isn't there a danger of it overheating? And you couldn't use it in the bath!

    Vagisil and Canesten are said to be really good for keeping "down there" healthy. If only it was that easy to get rid of the irritating c*nts who blight our lives each day!

    That doesn't look safe. It's missing the third pin on the plug!
