    Oskar got a reaction from Bedrag Justesen in Tommy Robinson thread   
    Didn't we invade Ireland shortly after 1066? With papal consent I might add. So again blame the Romans!

    Oskar reacted to DeepLurker in Macron - how long before wheels fall off   
    This.
    The candidates at the last general election were a very motley crew.
    Starting from the left: the far-left candidate had some good ideas, but others were la-la. 100% tax on incomes above a certain level? As Jonathan Pie put it "there's being a Socialist, and then there's living on planet Earth".
    The actual "Socialist Party" candidate was unable to distance himself from the hopelessly ineffective and massively unpopular outgoing president.
    The mainstream right-wing candidate was seen as a shoe-in for the top job, until it was revealed that he had been employing his wife as an assistant in parliament for several years on mucho €€€€... but no-one could remember seeing her at work. The French are fairly tolerant of corruption in their politicians, but this was blatant.
    The far-right candidate... she's popular with some on here, so I'll choose my words carefully. To be frank, I just don't trust her. Something about the way she talks, her smile, her eyes... if I was going for a job interview and she was going to be my new boss, I'd just walk away (as a disclaimer, I feel the same way about Macron).
     
    There were a number of other candidates - but as you point out, they were not presented favourably (or at all) by the MSM. Mrs DeepLurker voted for Lassalle in the first round, but she only learnt of him because he is a local-ish MP and I was talking about him with my parents.

    Oskar reacted to PatronizingGit in The Idiocy/Futility of Replacement Migration.   
    Back around 2000, the ONS did a report on this, using fertility and migration figures from the late 1990s (the language gives it away... "even if migration were 200,000 annually, a level the UK has never experienced) - oh, for those days!)
    Anyway, thought i'd post it, annotated with some tidbits I think are noteworthy...
    Conclusion is a small increase in native fertility from 1.8 to 2.075, (achievable not by more pregnancies, but simply by encouraging a 2/3rd decrease in the abortion numbers) or even 2.0 in the second analysis along with zero migration would have a far better effect than immigration in the hundreds of thousands...
    I am particularly captivated by this concluding sentence
    "a long-term TFR of 2.0 children per woman would produce much the same support ratio at 2100 as would annual net migration of half a million people a year, but with a total population of 75 million rather than 120 million"
     
    Consider also, Italy ALREADY (as of 2 years ago) has 22% of her population over 65...the UK, regardless of the fertility and migration policies it pursues (TFR 1.6 to 2.0, migration 45k to 145k pa...in 1998, 145k per annum was considered the highest realistically conceivable/tolerable!), that wont happen until around 2035. 
    http://www.ansa.it/english/news/2017/05/17/aging-italy-has-highest-proportion-of-over-65s-in-eu_5ae9d5ef-95b9-49b6-9e77-812b96794936.html
    This in addition to Italy having far higher unemployment and lower participation ratios that the UK...and yet, italy has seen its real wages merely stagant since 2007, compared to the UK losing ground...
     

    Despite (or because of?) this, Italy has, since 2010, had far fewer immigrants than the UK
    http://www.pewforum.org/2017/11/29/europes-growing-muslim-population/
    Net immigration to UK, 2010-2016: 1,600,000
    Net immigration to Italy 2010-2016: 720,000
    Oh, and Italy is LOWERING its retirement age to 62!
    Indeed, the only western european countries with smaller proportional over 65 sizes than the UK are the minnow states of Iceland, Ireland Luxembourg and Norway...so why do we continue shouldering a far higher burden of immigration than almost anywhere else...and moreover, why havent we surged ahead in earnings since the early 2000s, when net immigration to the UK really started pulling away from similar economies. 
     
     
    Anyway, the report (i hope tinypic is an ok host, if anyone knows better, id rather use that)

     

     


     



     

     

     

     
     
     
    In many ways, demographically, we really should be well set in our native people. Our baby boom was more muted than that US (3.8 TFR was the peak there, 2.4 in the UK...consider east asia, where in Japan, China, Korea and Taiwan, fertility rates in the 50s were 5-7, dropping to not much more than 1 today...they should be far more screwed) In fact, the 1960s high TFR in the UK was almost entirely due to foreign women. Irish mothers had a TFR of around 4, Indians 5, and muslims, over 9. A large part of our excessively (but still smaller than most the west) sized baby boomer burden will, itself be a largely imported problem rooted in immigration. Even in the baby boom, the TFR for British born women was only 2.2. Caribbeans in the UK have a more inverted population pyramid than white Britons! Indeed, conceptions by white British women are high as they ever were, only now around 200,000 babies are aborted each year. If women could be incentivized to keep their babies, we'd have incredibly stable, almost perfect native demographics. Indeed, UK demographics, have in modern terms, long been stable, comparitvely speaking. In 1960 we had the worst ratios on the planet, already nearly 12% of the population being over 65. If any country should be prepared for this, it should be the UK. And yet, we're not, despite our demographic 'shock' being minimal compared to most. 
    I'm left with the feeling that the immigrants we are allowing in, regardless of their numbers, are unproductive, costly to maintain, and generally drag things further in the wrong direction. From the economic output figures we see, they certainly dont seem to yield any great dividend.

    Oskar reacted to The Masked Tulip in Radio 4 audience falls.   
    I know female luvvies who love it - Woman's Hour is some sacred grail that must never be questioned.
    They love that Doctor Who is now neutered. They love the female character of Michael Burnham in the new Star Trek.
    They just love the anti white male pro feminist IMPO. To hell with men. To hell with millions of viewers turning off. The ideology must be enforced endlessly.

    Oskar reacted to Sgt Hartman in Stansted 16 - seriously fucking wrong.   
    Ridiculous that there was no custodial for that.
    You do not fuck about in airports. If you do, you should be made a serious example of IMO.
    Anyway, that's a precedent set. If you're off on your hols that you've been saving up for for years and your flight is cancelled because some yoghurt weaving soapdodger has chained himself to the landing gear in support of a rapist, do be sure to send the judge a postcard.
    Because you'll be seeing a lot more of this now.

    When I read the title I thought, well going from those I've met, more like 3 in 10 adults from NI are mental, so if it's only 1 in 10 kids that's good!

    Well that was fun. Quite a varied crowd, with army veterans, Catholics, LGBT, climate change, free the weed, and of course antifa (masked and not in yellow vests). Cops were jumpy, especially the plain clothes ones in the crowd, but not aggressive. I ended up with the weed group so a bit squiffy at the moment and some really smelly hippy girl kept hugging me after I told the weed group I am a brexiteer protesting Macron calling us idiots last week. She really stank.
