    Amazing video that. Thanks for posting

    Happy Gesture Day

    The boycott list is getting too long though. Need the list of non SJW companies it is safe to buy from now... Apparently this story is not what it seems though. Not a rebranding by Cadburys. Just a shopkeeper with an agenda...

    Glad I missed that. Can see the blood on the pavement though just outside the Assemblee Nationale building they just tried to get into. It's a feisty crowd today, that's for sure.

    Macron - how long before wheels fall off

    My French ain't up to much but from the comments it appears to have been a poll taken of just 1000 ppl over age of 18. Could mean anything... and nothing I guess.

    Brexit Betrayal thread - Part 2

    https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2019/feb/03/queen-to-be-evacuated-if-brexit-turns-ugly-reports Someone posted the above before the thread merge but I can't see their post now. Anyway, I thought perhaps all our rulers could now take a leaf out of Macron's book and just leave a helicopter running on standby in the garden/on the roof etc Nothing like showing solidarity with the common people you know. "All in it together" and all that...

    illegal waste carrier fined

    Wouldn't put it that way really. I'm very risk averse as I know the establishment is out to screw me at every opportunity, so if I am in a business activity or thinking about moving in to a different business activity then I will always ask myself... what do I need to do to be compliant in this business activity. Even if the rules are bullshit I'm not going to get caught out. Same with IT and IR35...I always gave a lot of consideration and planning into how do I not get caught on the wrong side of this. So I don't have much sympathy for someone who didnt bother to ask those questions AND they gave him a chance to comply anyway when he was caught on the wrong side. He didnt get reamed on a technicality. They gave him 10 days to comply by completing a simple online form and paying a small-ish amount of money...and he didn't.

    illegal waste carrier fined

    Okay. Hadnt heard of that one and if that is for domestic waste then seems to be taking the piss. Surely should be covered by our already eye watering levels of council tax!

    illegal waste carrier fined

    Seems fair enough. Was given 10 days to register and he didnt. Its really really easy to register online. Green waste (low tier license) is free, otherwise i think it cost £170 or something for a three year high tier license which is what he would have needed. If it is your own waste then no need to register. Its only if it is waste as a result of a business activity as in his case. I think he possibly could have got out of it if he had said it was not actually waste e.g. he was going to re-use the carpet elsewhere. Not sure about that though. I'm playing with a business idea myself involving green waste and I managed to do the necessary basic research and get registered so no sympathy from me.

    Brexit Betrayal thread

    Oh dear, it's that yappy terrier dog again. It just won't stop. "Every poll you look at finds that younger voters are overwhelmingly Remain." Like the poll that Channel 4 quoted on their programme the other day where most of the youngsters were for leaving and against 2nd referendum? "We have sadly got to choose which kind of division we are prepared to put up with." No. There is no choice. We go for the kind of division that honours the referendum result. It's called democracy. Much less divisive than the 'other kind' and no need for any of that messy rioting business either.

    Macron - how long before wheels fall off

    Fairly balanced article from the So-Called BBC that one, I thought. So the excuse for police firing these 100 metre per second 4cm wide flash balls at peoples heads is 'lack of training'. Surely you know something that big travelling at that speed is going to do some damage even without training! Then the ECHR reject a call for a temporary ban on the use of flash balls, stating: "The Court only exceptionally allows requests for interim measures, where, in the absence of such measures, applicants would be exposed to a real risk of irreparable damage." Yet people are losing eyes and ending up in comas because of them. Yes, they are very brave too. Just shows how far they have been pushed.

    The Demonisation of Masculinity continues

    "BIC 2" are very good in my opinion but I am no connosieur of shaving, havent tried so many different kinds, and I'm a cheapskate. They are usually £1.90 for a bag of 10, but sometimes on offer £1 a bag.

    Brexit Betrayal thread

    Desperate propaganda attempt. The mood is really hardening amongst leavers as I read the comments on articles like this. If the establishment go ahead and stitch us up then there is going to be carnage on the streets. I almost want to see them go ahead and do it... they seem to be in need of a reminder as to who they serve. Would prefer that they didn't though.
