    Alonso Quijano reacted to Errol in Bye bye Treason May?   
    There is no coming back from the leave vote. I'm not sure the politicians realise this. If they don't get brexit done properly the country isn't simply going to move on. A lot of people are going to be very angry indeed.

    Indeed.  Then they'll vote for their same old party and if their party gets elected they still end up with the government - little or no actual difference/change or just some peripheral change.
    Stifling debate just helps that almost perpetual process perfectly demonstrated by the mass immigration policies deployed under Labour and then continued seamlessly  under the Tories/Libdem -  despite repeated election  promises to do the contrary by Labour and Tories over the past 18 years or so - and for many years before that.

    Alonso Quijano reacted to The Masked Tulip in Qanon: high level intel, AI or LARP?!   
    Her as well.
    This is so sinister. They are basically shutting down anyone who they perceive as possibly being a threat to the Dems. We are living in seriousl dark time folks.

    Alonso Quijano reacted to Happyhaddock in The Germany is fucked thread   
    We were regularly told by our teenage daughter that we were xenophobic and racist in our views, mainly because we voted for Brexit and to control our own borders and who enters our country. She was a true product of the education system,  despite our efforts to broaden her viewpoint. She really couldn't understand our opinions or see any danger in the things that we were moaning about.
    Fast forward a couple of years and she now has a boyfriend who lives in Birmingham. She now totally agrees with us and can see where we were coming from, not saying that Birmingham is bad but it has definitely opened her eyes to the big, bad world outside our small, comfortable town.  I don't think she'll be giving us any more lectures now.

    Alonso Quijano reacted to ccc in Poll: Male sexual thoughts   
    I've mentioned this on here / TOS plenty times. 
    If you are ever on public transport and a group of dolled up schoolgirls get on wearing skirts too short. Anything over the age of about 14. 
    Don't look at them (If you can help it ) but look at any bloke around you. From ages 12 to 112. They will glance. They can't help it. 
    Most of the older ones will quickly think fuck she's young enough to be my daughter / granddaughter and look away. 
    But they will look. They can't help it.

    A statue. Wtf. Sad what happened to him and all but what's the status for ? What did he achieve ? Young bloke got involved with the wrong crowd and got stabbed to death. 
    What about all the other hundreds who have done similar ? Where are their statues ....

    Alonso Quijano reacted to Austin Allegro in Creeping Trivialisation Of Hate Crime Law   
    Hate crime is, IMO, absolute twaddle as a legal concept. It has only been allowed to flourish because those who make the law are so in thrall to PC that they will do anything, even if it makes no sense or goes totally against our constitution, to promote the ideology of multiculturalism. Viz: 
    - it is the criminalisation of an emotion. Why allow 'hate' crime when we don't allow, say, 'jealousy crime' or 'anger crime'? We don't prosecute people for expressing anger or jealousy, so why prosecute them on the grounds of hate? It is prosecuting for motivation, not action. 
    - It is totally subjective. If I, for example, accidentally bump into a Pakistani in the street, he can claim in law that I have committed a hate crime, simply because he feels that a hate crime has been committed. 
    - It is not administered equally to all persons, which is a direct contravention of Magna Carta. For example, I cannot make a counter claim that the aforesaid Pakistani gentleman has himself committed a hate crime against me by his action of claiming I have committed one against him (or at least, I would not give that a snowball's chance in hell of working in court).

    50% of the cost of Trump's security would be down to the anti-Trump hysteria whipped up by the likes of the So-Called BBC and the rest of the #fakenews media.

    Not enough barley? That'll be alright then, these climate change zealots want us to stop eating meat, so what we don't feed to animals we can use for beer!
    We are going to need beer because if these Guardian types are ever taken seriously life is going to be pretty miserable!

    Yes.  I'm afraid that this is however too much of a mindstretch for the propaganda addled brains of climate scientists.
    Canada and Russia will have enormous tracts of fertile land arising out of the permafrost; as the deserts expand the permafrost shrinks and vice versa with the fertile band moving up towards the poles and down towards the equator as the planets heats and cools.
    People have been on some of these Pacific islands for less than a thousand years; that's the blink of an eye even in terms of how long humans have been about let alone the life of the planet.  If rising sea levels push them off again I'd call that a natural cycle.

    The green lobby have a lot to answer for, killing biodiversity, taking space that could be used for other crops - if there is not enough barley in the future there may be other places to look first when other crops are given artificial subsidies.
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rapeseed
    Rapeseed oil is the preferred oil stock for biodiesel production in most of Europe, accounting for about 80% of the feedstock,[20] partly because rapeseed produces more oil per unit of land area compared to other oil sources, such as soybeans, but primarily because canola oil has a significantly lower gel point than most other vegetable oils.
     
    UN report warns that a hasty switch to biofuels could have major impacts on livelihoods and the environment
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rapeseed
    The report warns of the impacts on nature: “Use of large-scale mono-cropping could lead to significant biodiversity loss, soil erosion and nutrient leaching.”
    ..
    EU legislation to promote the uptake of biodiesel will not make any difference to global warming, and could potentially result in greater emissions of greenhouse gases than from conventional petroleum derived diesel. This is the conclusion of a new study reported in a recent article published in Chemistry & Industry, the magazine of SCI.
    ...
    However, if the land used to grow rapeseed was instead used to grow trees, petroleum diesel would emit only a third of the CO2 equivalent emissions as biodiesel. 
    Petroleum diesel emits 85% of its greenhouse gases at the final stage, when burnt in the engine. By contrast, two-thirds of the emissions produced by rapeseed derived biodiesel (RME) occur during farming of the crop, when cropland emits nitrous oxide (N2O), otherwise known as laughing gas, that is 200-300x as potent a greenhouse gas as CO2. 
    The results of this analysis should have big implications for policymakers. The 2003 EU Biofuels Directive aims to increase the levels of biofuels to 5.75% of all transport fuels by 2010, up from roughly 2% currently. This will be further increased to a 10% share in 2010, the Commission announced in January 2007.

    Alonso Quijano reacted to Frank Hovis in VAT for private schools -- Hammond again   
    This is what gets me.  Private schools save the taxpayer an absolute fortune - just let them get on with it.
    It's pure envy politics to start attacking them and doubly shocking to see an alleged Conservative chancellor suggesting it.
