  1. I'm fine with hunting so long as you use what you kill or do it for genuine pest control / management reasons. People that shoot or hunt for most of their life are generally born into a family or community where it is part of a way of life for practical and cultural reasons. Over the years I have seen plenty of newly enthusiastic shooters that buy all the kit and want to shoot everything that moves or go to the gun club or clay pigeon range very regularly then loose all enthusiasm a year or two later.
  2. Range safety and backdrop awareness were drummed into me so hard as a kid competition shooting and in the Army Cadets that to this day I would struggle to take a shot with live ammunition in a hunting scenario. Having had a few close shaves on shoots I would generally prefer to stay out the way of guns these days. I suspect that the large majority of legally held guns in the UK are barely ever used.
  3. It's increasingly sounding like the .gov response will turn out to have been an over reaction. I've been talking to a few public sector people and they are absolutely terrified, but they do unquestioningly and implicitly trust their guidance from above. The economic consequences are going to be big - a mate that works for a major house builder was saying that the entire company has been essentially closed until June at the earliest and everyone is going to be on 80% wages courtesy of the tax payer, which in his case will be at least £5k after tax. It sounds like even we scum of the earth sole traders will be getting some sort of handout - multiplied across the working population the sums will be immense. UK gov downgrades Chinese virus status 19th March 2020 Neil Ferguson (highly cited Imperial College Epidemiologist) substantially downgrades estimated impact 24th March Summary My take on it is to counter the impact of social distancing and use the spare time to make an effort to phone people, especially friends and well wishers I don't often talk to. Watching what the authorities, NGOs and the like are up to is also important, especially recording 'don't let a good crisis go to waste' actions, to hold them and their backers and allies to account at election time (if elections are held again )
  4. Argues the crisis is being used to advance behaviour modelling for future change with a focus on fragmenting society and increasing compliance.
  5. Nick Griffin and the BNP were an interesting case. They started to gain quite a lot of council seats in enriched northern towns because they were the only ones to speak out about what was going on. Not so long after was the infamous BBC Question Time hit job and the doxing of the BNP membership turned public opinion against him, don't think that tactic would work today. Nick Griffin was different from fairly normal bloke Tommy Robinson in image terms, being an older weird looking dude with a spazzy eye that spoke in a quite academic fashion. They both gained popularity / notoriety by speaking about the effects of mass immigration on working class communities, but when pressed on wider issues Tommy Robinson is otherwise broadly for a quite liberal status quo, whereas the BNP outlook tended toward quite pervasive authoritarian government. I notice the current ethno-nationalist movement which is centered around the demographic and social change brought about by mass immigration also tends toward similar undeveloped authoritarian ideas and seems actually quite socialist in the sense of 'for the greater good' policy suggestions. Basically half the population wants someone to stop and roll back mass immigration that the establishment refuses to consider, but otherwise leave things broadly as they are.
  6. I don't think the government and especially the So-Called BBC (in it's supposed role as national broadcaster) have been clear enough with the message about slowing the peak of infections - the So-Called BBC is putting out fear porn and a look around the internet suggests most other outlets are doing the same or else politicising the issue for their respective interest group. The nhs is so bloated and crap it'll fall apart if there is a sudden peak in cases. People are listening to the fear porn and then winding each other up on social media resulting in panic buying chimp outs.
  7. Have the national broadcaster or ukgov made any effort to explain the reason for 'lockdown' ? Something along the lines of 'Over the coming weeks between two thirds and seven eighths of the population will get the Chinese virus and most of you will be ok, but a small number of elderly or sickly will need hospital treatment and might even die. We are asking people to restrict their movements to essential business for a few weeks to slow the rate of infection so that all the gravely ill people do not need hospital treatment at the same time and overwhelm our nhs. Please think of dear frail old Granny before going out'.
  8. I don't doubt the thought of how many youtube views he will get for the footage crosses his mind, training his son to film confrontations is most likely primarily to avoid getting stitched up by the authorities. The old lady punching street pharmacists were probably quite surprised that the small and angry whitey didn't back down when they called him a racist because it is normally an easy and effective strategy with these weak people who are so desperate to appease. The policeman has been neutered by litigation culture we imported from the US in the nineties and is telling him to not intervene when a wrong is clearly occurring. It's never been all that clear what motivates Tommy Robinson, but I'm glad he's there bringing attention to the issues most are afraid to openly confront and making the establishment class uncomfortable.
  9. David Icke and even more so Alex Jones do indeed come out with some really bonkers stuff, but they also play a role in public perception by getting people to think about what is going on in the world in an entertaining and accessible fashion. I don't think many take Alex Jones seriously when he's ranting about demons and Illuminati child abuse bases on Mars, but the themes and ideas he has put out into the wider public consciousness are part of the movement that has changed the world and made it more difficult for western politicians and governments to carry on unchallenged.
  10. There's on board footage out there of TT practice where the rider looks to be going well until John McGuiness and Michael Dunlop pass either side at the same time, making it look like he is standing still. Difficult to get your head around the speed. Little known outside the sport of enduro British rider Graham Jarvis is a bit of a legend, still competing and winning at a world level in a very physical sport in his mid forties against riders twenty years younger than him. His super powers are mad bike skills and being able to pick lines at race speed that no one else can see:
  11. Pre EEC they had guaranteed prices under the Agriculture Act 1947, which although it might not have been as profitable as the war still meant taxpayer guaranteed prices ie socialising the loses of failing businesses. The very slow uptake of mechanisation of arable and milking and poor management on small family farms in the post war era was arguably just as much a symptom of subsidies opposed to the economic conditions of the time.
  12. RamZPaul reckons there could be a boom if the Chinese Virus scare ends quickly:
  13. In England, many farmers have Welsh or Scottish names. That's a consequence of the British agricultural depression of the late 19th century when many English farmers went bust as a consequence of competition from US / Canada / Russia / Polish grain imports. The Welsh and Scottish farmers who were more skilled at growing on more marginal lands were able to weather the storm and buy up English farms. It's particularly common near larger market towns where they could cash out their produce and buy good English land for cheap. Capitalism in action then, sort of corporate socialism for landowners since WWII.
  14. Wood pigeon breasts fried in butter v. tasty. No fussy preparation, you can just peel the skin off with your fingers and pull the breasts away from the breast bone by hand, no need for a knife and no plucking. Don't feel too bad about taking them as they are truly numerous, just be sure to kill quickly and decisively. Sporting gents follow the flocks around the countryside and shoot them from hides as they come into decoys. Or you can express the inner pikey and roost shoot them and pheasants at night during the winter months when there are no leaves. Catapults have become popular as they attract far less attention than guns.... (vid shows birds being killed) As to the wu-flu measures being put in place, I'm increasingly wondering if there is something in the notion that it is entirely political. National governments have to look like they are doing something and no doubt globalist loons are looking at it as an opportunity for a power grab. I think it was a Ramzpaul video where he reckoned many countries may see measures withdrawn within a fortnight or so
