    Alonso Quijano reacted to Shaneyson in Islamification of Europe   
    I think we need to tackle the real issue here, are my hands getting bigger?

    Alonso Quijano got a reaction from onlyme in Why are the So-Called BBC such arseholes?   
    Haven't watched #Newsnight for years. Saw this was on and thought: bound to be a whitewash (am I allowed to say that these days): Sweden is fine - lefty paradise.
    We have a problem (saw it with Brown), is that those pushing a narrative will never be able to backtrack and admit they were wrong. It will all become a bigger lie. Nero fiddling as Rome burned. The die is cast and it is not going to end well - they wrong people are in power or in positions of influence,

    Net migration is used to underplay the level of population change. It is disengenous.
    Who are we losing and who is arriving? Who is a contributor and who is a drain?
    The levels of gross immigration are insane, and have been since Blair. Wasn't Gillian 'the Bigot' Duffy (Oldham - lost town now) worried about immigration in 2005?
    People see the change; they weren't allowed to talk about it.

    Roger talked about this on stage. I wonder if he reads Dosbods?

    These sort of reports dont work like that. Its social science/economics; its junk.
    They pick someone to write a report.
    Anyone with half a brain will look at the facts  - EErs with ~30% fothe income of the West - and say 'Somewhere between 0 and all of them'
    I bet the report did not even consider tax credits, which is why 90% of EEers are in the UK.

    Then the report would be reviewed and someone like Alasdair Campbell would say the numbers are too high. Its not the message Tony wants. The academic would protest. Theyd threaten to pull funding. Report is re-written. Then filed.

    The pint is the whole process and the people employed are a fucking waste of time and money. There's no fuckng point trying to guess stuuf, whether you are a professor or not.

    Alonso Quijano reacted to Roger_Mellie in Screwing the young just a little bit more   
    I often wonder about this... The government's strategy for dealing with the fact that there just isn't enough to be done. 
    35-40 years ago a kid could have been verging on retarded, left school with no qualifications on the Friday and started with the council on Monday, digging ditches or sweeping roads. Now that same kid goes to college. It's odd.
    How would everyone feel if there were a small number of very large nationalised companies that nominally were set up to make a profit, but werent productive and only really existed to keep people in gainful employment and make them feel useful. Say, they always had a vacancy for one more gardener or one more junior secretary or cleaner.
    I probably haven't got the model  quite right, but you probably get the gist.  Preferable to keeping the workshy and low IQ on benefits or in education?

    They are making it up as they go along - all to push an anti-Russian and tangentially pro-action in Syria angle - liquid chemical weapons, one that sticks around like thick Demostos, and will need £millions spent on clean-up/decontamination that has killed no-one. Really silly now. The lies are going to get bigger and more ridiculous - and dangerous. Power is threatened, well it would be if we had a credible opposition and media. Ho-hum.
    I miss the good old days of Ministerial integrity and resignations for being bad or grossly incompetent.

    Another era and our Prime Minister would be forced to resign. Deceiving the nation, and putting its citizens at risk by committing it to reckless military action.
    No faith nor any trust in that bloody woman.

    I think people are actually getting more stupid (present company excepted), that can be the only explanation for the mess we are in and the madness that pervades so many.
    The more we learn the less we know.

    There are many, many older people who have never applied for a passport. 
    Interestingly, my employer a few years ago decided that they wanted to check the status of all staff and so we were given a list of id to bring in.  I rocked up and the following was discussed 
    “can I see your passport “
    ”I don’t have one” (I did but I managed to lose it and never got round to replacing it)
    “well, your birth certificate “
    i pulled out the short summary version which is all I have 
    “that’s no good, where is your proper one?”
    ”it’s all I’ve got”
    ”well drivers licence”
    i pulled out my old paper one
    ”that’s no good, we need a photo one”
    ”I’ve not got one”
    ”well what phot id do you have?”
    i pulled out my work pass. I thought the bloke was going to explode
