    the So-Called BBC have just, with straight face said that this might be an islamist terrorist, or a far right terrorist, and it is not yet clear.  
    does anyone actually believe these fools?

    I've had this conversation with a few people. How many women have you ever seen at work in a full burka? Answer is none. Zero. Never. Ever. Ever. Even in Birmingham.
    Then the follow up... How many men do you see at work dressed in full beard and Jim jams? Same answer again. So where is the money coming from?
    Some of them have a lightbulb moment. Some get uppity.

    No need to be fair to Shelagh Mouthpiece Fogarty because she isn't.
    I heard the Qanta interview as it went out and Shelag desperately trying to construct a feminist  position defending the right of muslim women to be supressed. Qanta dismantled her using facts about islamism and its encroachment on Western values.
    If Qanta had of been a white male espousing the same rational views, Shlag would have binned her call.

    The sooner they have an impromptu rendition of "Don't look back in anger" the better, so we can collectively get on with the business of burying our heads in the sand.

    Looking at the list of countries you could take out the fact it is sorted by percentage of Muslim and apply other criteria and end up with the same or reverse order.
    1. Would I like to live there? 2. Is there freedom to do what you want? 3. Are minorities suppressed and tortured?  4. Is the country a source of innovation and invention? 5. Is there religious tolerance? 6. What percentage pf people would leave if they could? 6. Is there a reasonably fair system of wealth distribution? 7. Is there equality that is independent of gender or sexual orientation?
    There is no joy in Islam, no innovation, no tolerance, just oppression or submission which is the whole ethos of Islam and violence. There does seem to be a direct correlation (inverse) between whether a country is good to live in and the amount of Islam.

    I'm not sure as I take the cash allowance instead.  I've been on holiday this last week but I'll ask next week when I'm back.  It's one of the large construction companies so we're talking about quite a few vehicles.

    As we  are talking WLTP I put part of this in a previous thread but it puts it into perspective and highlights how inefficient hybrids in reality are, especially plug-in ones if they are not plugged-in.
    Manufacturers have to hit 95g/km by 2021 as an average across all sales if they are to avoid being 'fined', so in theory you can use electric & plug-in hybrid sales to offset the the likes of your C350s and Q7s.
    “If they are unable to meet compliance targets in time, IHS Markit forecasts that average fines for those not complying could reach €624 per vehicle at the end of 2020, with a further €190 increase in 2021 as a function of the shift to WLTP,”
    The chart below is what the city/finance people predict the market share of vehicles across the board will be in 18 months time, as you can see Hybrids, especially mild ones with tiddly batteries are a waste of time as will be most plug-in hybrids if you can't or can't be arsed to plug-em-in.

    They will have to shift a lot of very expensive cars (with batteries) to get anywhere near the figure.
    The biggest losers will be German manufacturers who have no chance and will just pay the new tax. 
    The piece that was  in 'thisismoney' today is basically disguised marketing to make people in the UK think bargains are to be had, the test is not a test as such but an exercise in accounting and averages.

    It is not just mpg that was being manipulated under the old test it was also emissions. The emissions are key in defining the poularity for fleet buyers as they had a larger impact on the amount of tax a company car buyer would pay. Mpg can be affected massively by driving style, my current c350e has a manufacturer  stated mpg of 78.5 mpg and I struggle to get 40mpg doing around 90% motorway mileage.

    I would suggest that all of the manufacturers were gaming the test.
    Here is a graph from 2014 showing the difference in real and manufacturer stated MPG so it has been known about for a long long time.

    This new WLTP whilst being a good idea on paper is going to be very disruptive for the motor industry. I have been talking with the Directors of some of the largest fleet buyers in the UK and they have no idea what to do and are having to literally do nothing until after September.
    When I last looked Nissan currently has one model of the Juke which has been homulgated under the new testing regime and VW have just three. Think of the amounts of different models and derivatives which need to be tested prior to being sold in September. Rumour has it that VW and Audi are extending the two week annual shut down to four weeks and shifts are being removed.

    Registrations for this year in the run up to the plate change are going to be massively distorted by the introduction of the WLTP. A lot of manufacturers may have to register any stock held before the plate change in order to avoid them potentially not being able to sell those cars after the WLTP is introduced.  The largest fleets in the country have no idea as to what cars to buy for the new registration as the vast majority of manufacturers have very few vehicles which meet the new testing regime.
    This is genuinely one of the riskiest situations I have seen for the motor industry in 15 years. Of course no mention of this in the press, but the figures for the new plate registrations are going to be disastorous on a scale never witnessed in terms of percentage drops.
    Another external factor driving sales volume on private petrol cars  is the widening of the congestion zone in London (ULEZ) where effectively driving a pre 2015 diesel has become economically unviable. This may have pulled forward future demand as people have been forced in to buying a new car earlier than anticipated in London.

    Shaneyson got a reaction from JFK in Real or fake? what sort of news is it?   
    The reporter was trying to make out that there were Dickensian levels of poverty and struggle. They were all housed, clothed, educated, healthcare provided and 'paid' on a weekly basis. Were all of these births immaculate conceptions or were males involved at some point. Why does the responsibility for others choices fall upon the wider state, where are the sperm donors, where is the extended family where is the personal responsibility? 
    So what is the solution, make a radio programme to try and make me feel bad for other peoples choices and circumstances.

    It is hard to believe but one of the contributors had only been out of work for three years.
    I heard a number of sad tales from single mums who had been thrown upon the mercy of the 
    state. They couldn't even afford to get a takeaway, oh the humanity.
    But don't worry this can all be solved by the state providing more support to alleviate the suffering.
    This was the most wretched, stomach churning output I have heard in a long time and that is saying something.

    The trouble is you get the most intelligent and capable women entering the workforce and the pond life sitting at home pumping out babies like there's no tomorrow. It's dysgenics writ large. 
    Capable and intelligent women should be taking care of their children, not wasting their lives in corporate hell, that's what men are for!
    Oh, but what about the gdp? Fuck the gdp! It only gets wasted on the feckless anyway.

    My thanks to the posters here.  As a media avoider, I had no idea about this until 24 hours ago.  It's my holibobs, so I spent a few hours trying to work out what I thought it was, as seems to be the tone of the thread.
    I think, at minimum, it's a work of genius, whether intended or not.  Anything that can bind together millions of supporters, and get them on the same websites and sharing the same memes is political dynamite.

    I would love to have seen her do that, but I think she pretty much nailed it in the response she gave.
    It struck me while watching her performance that Sarah Sanders is the epitome of the strong, confident and capable woman that all these militant feminazi types constantly shout that they themselves are. But while the militant feminazi sisterhood can only hope to mitigate their own mediocrity by using social media to try to drag everybody else down to their level, women like Sarah Sanders are out there talking the talk and walking the walk like a fucking boss.
    No wonder they hate her.
