    Was there an accident?

    RE should be taught, IMO, as an understanding of the basics of the world's major religions helps understand other aspects of culture - music, art, philosophy, literature etc. 
    The music of Bach, for example, cannot really be appreciated unless one understands what it is about. A lot of poetry does not make real sense unless one has at least a passing knowledge of the King James Bible and the Book of Common Prayer. 
    Western civilization was founded on a combination of Judeo-Christian religion, and the philosophy of the Greeks and Romans, with a bit of Hinduism and Buddhism along the way. If we leave that out because we are 'not religious' or because it is 'old fashioned', we might as well leave out the study of history as well. 
    However, in practice it would probably not be taught like this. I seem to recall most of my RE lessons were about copying out maps showing the flight of the Jews of into Egypt, or unstructured chats about the meaning of life with vague hippy teachers in corduroy jackets.

    My children have been through the system recently enough.
    The process seems to be something like:
    Children are growing up. Everyone knows the schools don't do swimming well. Most of the kid gets at least a minimum amount of tuition privately at the swimming club. The primary school 'swimming month' comes along. Strangely, most of the kids pick up swimming really really quickly.  Yeah! Well, there are one or two odd ones that 'don't pick it up' and have to have all the attention spent on them.  The 'natural swimmers' just muck about in the water for all the sessions. The few 'not natural swimmers' really take quite a lot of effort to teach to swim.  But with enough one-to-one focus you can just about get them to a minimum standard in month. At the end of the swimming month all the children can swim.  Yeah!  The school is great -- we've managed to get all the children to swim!  Tell everyone about how great we are, that we can get all the children to swim! Clearly swimming month works wonderfully!   Everyone must do swimming month! Oh.  But it doesn't seem to work so well at the dodgy school in the town, the one where so many of the parents can't be bothered and where even the enthusiastic ones don't have the cash or time to do stuff outside of school.  Very oddly all of those kids are in the 'not natural swimmers' category, and then there just aren't enough teachers to teach them all to swim in the limited time in swimming month.  So that school has terrible statistics for 'children that can swim by the end of year 4'. Still, on average the 'swimming month' approach works.  Lets just stick with it.

    If they tried that, some liberal Swedish woman politician would tell them off for deliberately inflaming the passions of the otherwise law abiding and woman-respecting guests, and for not understanding their need to relieve themselves during a sexual emergency.

    The police have become the enemy of indigenous Brits. They cover for those who would do is harm.

    Clearly it's time to withdraw our consent to be policed by these cunts.

    The media is telling us how "Manchester is pulling together", yet the footage from Manchester shows the crowds are 99% white. It's becoming increasingly clear that non white people aren't "pulling together" in Manchester.
    Honestly, multicultural society isn't working.

    Obama's kids get affirmative action places at Ivy League universities to make up for the historical disadvantages they face as people of colour. 
    The kid of a poor Vietnamese immigrant gets no such advantage when applying to university in the US. In fact, they are penalised because there are 'too many' Asians in American universities.

    Yep hating islam because it's hateful is a hate crime, but hating everything that isn't islam because islam is full of hate... isn't... that's just religious freedom (that islam doesn't provide, because it's hateful) but we do provide it because we aren't.
    That's it!

    Black people were enslaved because they were weak and stupid, a tradition that modern day blacks are doing their best to live up to.

    After reading that clap-trap, if they are finding it so hard to get on in the UK and find its indigenous population so ignorant to their idea of how life is then maybe the writer and mother should fuck off somewhere else.

    What is the country doing to commemorate his sacrifice?  
    Oh, the establishment is waaay too busy telling us we are all wraccist. Grenfell, windrush, doctors and engineers being persecuted by the tax office but nothing about this. 
    To quote you, they can fuck off, just fuck off.

    RIP.
    That poor man and his family - and all of us affected by this.
    AND FUCKING SHAME ON THE POLITICIANS AND OTHER TRAITORS WHO HAVE FACILITATED THE ENVIRONMENT FOR THIS SITUATION TO OCCUR. 
    There is no forgiveness for them, only cold hard fury. Which is what I feel.

    I am going to stick with this shit. Got some headscarf wearing Bint now saying she can never use public transport again because some guy looked at her for 10 seconds and she now only trusts Muslims so her life is over.
    Your life isn't over you daft cow. The young girls who were blown to pieces have no life. You are just a whingeing idiot.

    Fuck me they are. What a piss boiling pile of shit.
    I really hope none of the parents of the dead kids are watching this. It would tip them over the edge.
    The day after the attack, coppers going round the muzzers handing out leaflets making sure they know how to complain if someone uses nasty words.
    Just fucking unbelievable.
