    whitevanman got a reaction from Bedrag Justesen in Boohoo bans wool   
    I'm not sure why there's such a big panic about methane recently. It's not called natural gas for nothing. It oxidises fairly quickly in the atmosphere forming water and CO2. 
    I can't think of a more environmentally sustainable material for making clothes than wool, it's a fantastic product.

    whitevanman reacted to Bedrag Justesen in Why are the So-Called BBC such arseholes?   
    The English have been robbing billions of gallons of water from Wales for hundreds of years.
    They don't put that on BBC News.

    They are falling out of fashion, owner cashed a load of shares in at the peak, supposedly to buy a warehouse, guess he knew the figures.
    The others (directors) knew when to buy as well nudge, nudge.

    The business is wallowing and this is cheap but shit publicity.

    Sheep aren't kicked/punched/etc while being sheared -- they're worth cash and you don't want them injured.
    In addition, sheep need to be sheared -- if you don't then they'll run the risk of heatstroke when summer comes.  Sure, you might not want to eat lamb/mutton, but if there are sheep around because others want to eat the stuff you might as well wear the by-product.
    [Wool isn't worth much.  The reason it exists is because sheep were bred to hold on to their fleece when the warm weather came, rather than have it moult.  Because wool isn't worth much (it can be worth less than the cost of shearing) sheep are now being bred to moult again -- I think this is a bit mad -- the sheep are there anyway, so the deal is that we're happy for the wool to be grown and discarded, rather than grown and used]
    Oh, and it is nice for Boohoo to stop using this natural product with amazing warmth and longevity, and promote all their plastic based fibres that'll be discarded at the end of the season. 
    [And the ones doing the discarding will be all the girls out today clamouring for action against climate change.  Funny thing logic]

    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?

    Seems sensible.
    I want to ask our politicians -- how come you decided to fix our demographic problem using immigration, where Hungary's solution is fairly obvious and would seem to hold far fewer potential pitfalls?

    As a devout Muslim why can't she seek asylum and medical treatment in one of the lovely, Godly, generous Muslim countries in which she would feel much more at home?

    It's not a question of whether or not the government should allow her back. If this country had a backbone then she would fear the consequences of returning and stay in whatever shit-hole she currently resides within.

    "Cop said he was in possession of 30 Tweets by me. I asked if any contained criminal material. He said.... No. I asked if ..."
    When are these people going to learn?  If the Stasi calls you like this, do not engage.  I don't even think asking for their name/number would be necessary.  You have a right to remain silent, especially when you've not committed a crime.  Although I'd be tempted to inform them I'd attempt to take a private civil action for harassment.
    I keep seeing these types of Tweets where the Commissar rings the home of the Tweeter, then the Tweeter tells us of the long debate they've had with the Commissar.  Jesus, why would you do that?  If forced to say anything, labour out the word SOLICITOR slowly, then hang up.  Even if they arrest you, say nothing.  Silence is golden.

    Like it or not we're in a new type of war where we don't face a conventional enemy. We really need to start building Guantanamo Bay type prisons for people like this. We also have to stop giving human rights to people that want to kill us. At 15 she should have been aware enough to realise what type of organisation she was joining.
    The scary thing is she looked relatively "normal" in her schoolgirl photographs. She wasn't wearing a hijab/ scarf and looked attractive. If we can't trust the western looking ones we really can't trust any of them.
    Whoever thought it was a good idea to open up the West to third worlders should be shot.

    She is only being 'compliant' because her side lost.
    Ask yourselves what she would do to non-muslim women, children and men if she had total power of life and death over us?

    When we bring her home to her new apartment in Stratford she should be interviewed again.
    Next time for Take A Break.
    We need to know what pop music she likes.
    Ariana Grande ?

    Yet the terrorist who killed all those young girls in Manchester was rescued from Libya by the Roral Navy.
    The government has form for providing passage and safe haven for people who wish to kill us all.

    Since about 2000 yes.  Much less so before then.
    Even in the 90s there were plenty of adult oriented films in the top 25.  It's not that we've grown out of them it's that film makers have dumbed down and the audience has shifted accordingly.

    Not just what, why. In the 80s the army was still seen as a tool for protecting the lives and culture of British civilians. Now it is seen as poorly paid grunt work for exploitative oil companies.

    Avatar was hilarious! A very clever subtle parody of the sort of badly written, badly acted sentimental, anti-western, leftist, anti-capitalist dross that Hollywood is always churning out.
    Erm...it was a parody, wasn't it?
