    Mental mental chicken oriental

    Not to derail the thread, but the kids are not to blame for the attitude of their parents or their school. They're responsible only for their actions, and as far as I can tell there is equal room for debate as to the actions of both parties at the demonstration.

    The left will love this. Delinquent debtors is just a proving ground - give it a couple of years to mature and you've got the Doxxomatic 2, capable of identifying and outing anyone who fails to conform to whatever SJW cause du jour you choose to program it for.

    Brexit Betrayal thread

    The broadcast I saw started with Trump, moved on to Brexit, and onto the earth-shatteringly important news that Prince Phillip had been spoken to by police about not wearing his seatbelt. I genuinely had a "holy shit, is this how other people actually think?" moment.

    Brexit Betrayal thread

    I watched the ITV evening news last night, the first TV news I've seen in years. I very quickly came to the conclusion that Brexit is not simply about polarised opinions, it's about completely conflicting perceptions of reality. I genuinely felt like I was watching a bulletin from some sort of alternative dimension where the world as I understand it was turned completely on its head. I am sure now that there is no possibility of a solution to this where both sides compromise a little to find some middle ground. It's all or nothing, one side takes all, the other loses everything. And it will end badly, of that there is no doubt.

    I gave that James O'Brien interview five minutes but couldn't stand any more. What a complete twat. He comes across like a sullen teenager bitching at his mum and dad for making him tidy his bedroom. Is that seriously the level of Remain debate? Lol!

    How's the tax return going?

    I agree 100% here - it's a noble thing only if it provides those benefits. Quite clearly it doesn't, and quite clearly we're being taken for a bunch of idiot cash cows, but I put the blame for that squarely on the government, not on the people collecting the money.

    How's the tax return going?

    I disagree. I have no problem with taxation if the tax take is used appropriately - maintenance of roads, collection of rubbish, provision of an efficient welfare system, education etc. What we end up with is roads full of potholes, ever decreasing public services, a burgeoning welfare system and an indoctrination system which actively un-educates our children so they don't spot what's being done to them. All at the same time as pols are getting wealthier and wealthier. I might not like people who work for the tax office, but they have to put food on the table the same as all the rest of us do.

    How's the tax return going?

    Filed online yesterday. I used to hate the taxman, then I realised I was aiming my anger in the wrong direction. It's not the collector who is at fault, it's the incompetent, thieving bastards who demand it in the first place, spunk it all away, and then come back demanding ever more who are really to blame. That said, a lot of civil servants are officious little pricks, so I do keep a little bit back for them.

    Trump's progress

    It's not even trolling though is it? It's straightforward tit-for-tat after the Dems "disinvited" the Don from delivering the State of the Union address on the basis of the shutdown. I can't believe they didn't see this coming, but if they didn't:

    Macron - how long before wheels fall off

    It amazes me how many of these SJWs who are far superior to us emotionally and intellectually believe that violence is absolutely a-ok as long as it's the "bad guys" getting the shit kicked out of them.

    This might be of interest - Dossier Shocker: Top DOJ Official Sounded Alarm, Warned Of Clinton Connection And Possible Bias I remember when he gave his closed session testimony last year, someone on the Rep side let it be known that Ohr was singing like a canary: And: So, for TMT, the FISA stuff is back

    Ah - thanks. Those are quite striking, but even more so the fact that that they are being suppressed. The jackboots are on and ready to trample by the looks of it.

    Macron - how long before wheels fall off

    All of those videos are unavailable now, did you see them before they were removed? I ask because I suppose it is possible that someone is uploading and then removing vids of them taking their pet pooch for a walk, and then claiming the removed vids showed appalling police brutality. Not that I don't believe it, just playing devil's advocate. Unless you're an equally sweaty sporting team mate celebrating a goal or whatever, there is only one reaction that a fully dressed heterosexual male would make when approached for a cuddle by an unknown half naked sweating smelly gym jockey. And it is not to reciprocate. That is not homophobic, it's just natural reaction.

    Not sure I agree with him there. The examples he cites of Uber and AirBnB banned only a couple of individuals from their "product" - excellent strategy because you lose one customer and gain loads more on the back of your new found SJW creds. But Gillette aren't going to gain large numbers of new customers by alienating nearly all their existing customer base.

    Ha, I watched the top one already - must admit the bloke seemed to be making a right old palaver about it but that's probably why he hasn't ended up a blood soaked mess. I will probably watch it again with renewed focus once I have learned my lesson

    Why are the So-Called BBC such arseholes?

    How on earth do they expect people to get good enough at it?

    All done. Binned my Mach 5 and ordered a double-edged razor, 2 packs of blades, and a giant sized pack of plasters. I'm now relaxing with a cup of tea and embracing my toxic masculinity.

    At the risk of sounding like a twat, I think we're all much better off without the "weaponised" ones.

    The Demonisation of Masculinity continues

    Well I've given it a thumbs down and I'll switch to an alternative now just because no fucker is ever going to make me reject my masculinity, but IMO this is nothing more than a strategy change. I've been using the example of razors for years to explain the problem capitalism faces in that it needs constant technological advance or it dies. Razors are a superb example, because in the time since I started shaving we've gone from single blades through double blades, safety wires, treble blades, vibrating handles, quadruple blades, swivelling blade heads and now 5 blades - all for a product that still does exactly the same thing and arguably only a little better than it did right at the outset. I've always said I pity the Gillette R&D department, who must sit there wondering what the hell they're going to do for the next technological "advance". I reckon Gillette have reached the same conclusion and taken a calculated gamble - instead of wasting time and money trying to advance an unadvanceable product, they're simply trying to reach out to grab a greater market share by piggy-backing on a topical controversy, and at the same time presumably hoping that the blokes who already use their product can't be bothered to find an alternative.

    Yep, looking at the trajectory I'd guess they were coming from rooftops of nearby buildings. I doubt they'd be firing those things out of helicopters as even if they weren't worried about injuring protestors there surely would be a good chance of inadvertently hitting the rozzers. I expect it'd be quite a nasty bang on the head from that height.

    As far as I can see the term "best friends" comes only from Lindsay Graham, and I'd say it's little more than an attempt to stop the Democrats bitching that he'll try to quash the Mueller probe. It's all theatre, after all.

    Lol - look at those lunatics driving the wrong way around the roundabout. And they call us Brits crazy.

    Pets and the like

    I have one of a similar age and it's been bugging me lately knowing that we're probably not too far from having to do the same. Don't go down the route of feeling that you could have done more - especially where cats and their health are concerned I tend to think that they'd be far happier if most of us did less, i.e. feed them, give them a warm place to sleep, and then butt the fuck out and let them get on with life the way they'd naturally live it. I'm sure your cat was very grateful for everything you did.
