    Frank Hovis got a reaction from the gardener in Jo Cox Memorial Weekend   
    Ah yes, talk about incestuous and jobs for the boys:
    Brendan and Jo met while working for Oxfam, where Mr Forsyth had been their boss. Mr Forsyth became Gordon Brown's campaigns chief when he became Prime Minister in 2007, and Mr Cox joined him in Downing Street, while Mrs Cox became an adviser to Sarah Brown. The Coxes married in 2009.
    When Labour lost the 2010 Election, Mrs Cox followed her political dream – eventually being elected MP in 2015. Mr Forsyth became Save The Children's chief executive and Mr Cox went with him as director of policy, including responsibility for the 'empowerment of women.'

    St Brendan has just been officially thrown under the bus. After studiously ignoring the Harvard story the So-Called BBC has just led its 7am news with the new story and it's also the lead story on their news page.

    BBC big questions on now.
    Question "Should all IS returnees to Britain be punished?"
    What the fuck. Why is this even being questioned.

    That's quite a story.

    Convert or die.
     

    Here behind the later of Ortrantos Cathedral are the remains of many who would not convert.

    His twitter feed is fascinating as there are people, even now, trying to defend him - what does that say about them? - but they are getting destroyed.
    Here's a random one that caught my eye.

    And to think calling this out was part of the reason we got kicked off of TOS 
    "Extremism" they said.

    I don't think he'll recover from this. Footballers doing coke and prostitutes is excused by most people as "being one of the boys", whereas making people physically uncomfortable in your presence is outright creepy - compounded by the fact that his entire image has been crafted as the very opposite of what he now seems to be. There'll be a few SJWs in denial for a bit but I think the groundswell of opinion will put paid to that - lefties just love hating too much to so easily forgive him.
    That Mail article also has him quite nicely positioned to take a further fall if he doesn't just quietly fuck off, or if the Mail decide they want to go ahead and do it anyway.

    Gordon Brown created a huge number of Brownites. He stuffed them in UKGOV. And he stuffed them in the 34rd sector, donating money to them.
    It was all a part of his for Gordon for PM for a 1000 years.
    And Im not making this up.

    You look at UKGOV charity funding from 2002.

    I keep mentioning it but people dont know how much of a loon Brown was..

    That presupposes that the Conservative party knows what it's doing; last year's snap election suggests otherwise.

    Frank Hovis got a reaction from Ina in They don’t make them like they used to   
    I accept that charge to a degree, though it's more a stance of "I can afford a rare Ferrari so will instead drive a very ordinary car as I'm not jumping on that bandwagon"; a lot of much wealthier people than me do the same.  Zuckerberg, Buffet, and the IKEA founder all drove / drive ordinary cars.
    It's also a "green" (in a good sense rather than a virtue-signalling sense) motivation.  I mend my socks so wear them ?two years more than somebody who chucks them out at the first appearance of a hole.  So my sock purchases are a third of your average person meaning less environmental damage from producing three times as many socks and discarding them.
    I linked the R4 Your and Yours phone in which included amongst the callers a woman who on principle would buy nothing new barring underwear because she wanted to cause the minimum damage to the environment.
    It's an acceptance of the necessity of having material goods combined with a dislike of materialism.  I like having old things; especially if my repairing them means that they continue in use.

    For all the absolute tosh that Blair / Brown brought in about GDP growth being their god (and Cameron / May continued; their is no left right difference in this nonsense) these monetary measures really do not improve people's lives.
    I am at this moment wearing a polo shirt that became too small for my brother ten / fifteen years ago.  I actually prefer wearing that, with its thin patches, to a brand new ? £80 polo shirt.  All this excess money sloshing about makes no-one happier.  What makes people happy is family, friends, and time.  GDP per head ncreasing 10% will not make people happier.

    Superb!
    I used to (25 yes ago, so as an adult) wild camp on Dartmoor, brilliant. One of my leaving work activities will be doing it again, warm weather only!
    I was really impressed by a single mother fof to whom I was chatting about walking a local river valley and she said she regularly camped there overnight with her kids. Great fun experience for them and no giving money to bloody Centre Parks.

    Don't know where you live but try Wales. In remote Carmarthenshire where family live you can go days without seeing a car.
    Anyone else noticed that many of these companies boycotting the DM are "European" owned? Center Parcs is Dutch, LEGO is Danish.
