Just a quickie, most of you will be up to speed on this but just in case, yup, got caught. Ordered new fone from Amazon, after a week van draws up guy pushes something through letterbox, I thought "that's odd" empty box squashed flat! Apparently its a 'thing' where gooners set up as retailer then simply take orders and post out empty boxes and after a week or so, dissapear. always check seller and look for where it says how long they've been with Amazon. I was lucky, got a refund but you might not be so fortunate. That's all.

On a similar theme, if on a slight tangent, I put the television on at midday and was confronted by 4 members of the opposite sex, (I believe it is called "Loose Women" but don't quote me on that), who were openly discussing the latest shenanigans of the honourable member for Uxbridge and South Ruislip. One of the contributors openly stated that " what sort of woman would entertain such a blonde headed lump of lard as a lover?" Now imagine the uproar had 4 men passed a similar derogatory comment on a female MP, (or other).
I am all for equality of sex,race,religion etc but it does seem very one sided. angry.gif

Like all 'special interest groups' (pick any) they don't want equality, they want a special relationship with equality, a relationship that puts all the cards in their hands.

Thing is though, if you ban face coverings you will have to remove your motorcycle helmet to do all sorts of things. How about a scarf over your mouth when it's cold? Same deal. And that's why we can't ban face coverings. But we can make it unacceptable through persuasion and reasoned debates and discussions. Or just ban religion.


Except it has nothing to do with religion rather it has to do with men holding medieval attitudes towards women.

Allegedly; The reason women must cover themselves is so they do not seduce a man.

So then; If a man catches a glimpse of her ankle, and he becomes seduced, then he isn't responsible for his actions. He might rape her, accidentally of course, and it'd all be her fault. Traitorous, adulterous witch. She should've covered herself up! That poor guy! She seduced him. She must be punished.

You can see where I'm going with this, right?

The burka is not a religeous garment. It is a gender enslavement tool, and 100% away from what our country has been fighting to overcome for the last 100 years.

But here's the rub: We agreed that a woman should be allowed to wear whatever she likes, right? So if she wants to cover herself from head to toe, we have to let her!

Now why would she want to do that?

Well, since a woman isn't trying to seduce anybody while out buying her dhania, atta and haldi then she won't mind covering herself, particularly as she's already married. After all, who needs to see her anyway? Only her husband has any interest in being attracted to her, so it should be 'no skin of anyone's nose', right? Why do you even want to look at this man's wife anyway. She's private property.

So ... this leaves us with a dillema:

Either we must enforce our belief that a woman should be allowed to express herself any way she chooses. This will mean accepting the burka as a fashion garment, and a legitimate choice of self-expression. This means we'll have to ignore the surrepticious gender/social constrictions to the women involved.

Or we must accept we were wrong, and that some clothing really isn't suitable or acceptable. Bikinis, miniskirts and hot-pants might well fall into this category. Which means we might have been wrong all along! Maybe these burka people have a point? Then we're forced to adopt it.

There are no winners in this. Somehow the logic betrays us. And now we see why religeous fanaticism has such a firm grip in the 21st century. The control methods run so deep they're practically invisible.

So if anyone can unpick that little thorn-in-the-side-of-equality, because I can't see a route out. I think the burka is here to stay, because our liberal society prevents us from enforcing liberation. Thus, these women will remain victims to a regime which is beyond criticism, and the controlling behaviour this silly garment permits will remain unspoken.

Things to note;

It's not a religious issue in any way.

it wasn't an 'outburst'.

Bo Jo doesn't support a ban.

People wearing it do look stupid.

Its a security issue as well.

It's men forcing women to wear them.

It’s not jumping to conclusions to say that he broadcast contrary to a court order. It’s irrefutable. What remains to be seen is if he was harshly judged. Given his long history of criminal activity the sentence doesn’t seem disproportionate. But I’ve no idea what the sentencing guidelines are for what he did. As you say, we shall have to wait and see but I can’t deny being glad that such a disgusting person is behind bars.


nothing to with how he was judged, the judicial process was abused. everybody from your bearded child abuser upwards deserves a fair trial, its called due process, TR was denied his fair process. this was the basis of the appeal and subsequent freeing. the libs need to pay heed to the law.

HOT weather can be dangerous if you do not understand anything.

Britain is basking in the glorious sunshine of a long heatwave – but it can be hard to enjoy the sun safely if you are **** thick. Here is some advice for you:

If you stand naked in direct sunlight for a long time, you may start to experience discomfort caused by your skin burning off. One clue to this is a smell like roasting pork coming from your flesh.

Avoid staring directly at the sun. This should be easy enough to do as there is no practical reason why you would ever need to stare at the sun.

That feeling of dryness in your body is called ‘thirst’. It means it is time to have a drink. Not beer though. Fight the urge to drink more beer.

Water is best ingested through your mouth. Do not try to pour it up your nose.

Remember, whatever the weather, to keep breathing in and out. Breathing is an important part of not dying.

Finally, always wear a hat. Like that funny one you got from the market with ‘Fart Machine’ written on it.

I havent read a lot of posts on here but at the point Tommy Robinson was arrested, the defendants hadn't been charged. Therefore they are not rapists, groomers or anything else, they are citizens just like the rest of us. That is the very crux of the issue really, because that seperates Robinson from other journalists and sums up why he isn't just doing the same as the others.

Oh dear, Oh dear, oh dear, oh dear.

Out side a crown court? where the defendants were appearing? Even with your limited grasp on reality it should be obvious that you can't be a defendant in a Crown court without first being charged?

Plays Phail music!

Quite agree that they shouldn't be spending on unnecessary firinge activities, but I can't see what's wrong with what they are doing with the dogs. In simple terms it seems that Police management have worked out that doing this will save a substantial sum without reducing operational effectiveness. So, from my perspective, well.done for that. The article says they'll talk to the Police Trades Union, the Federation in due course. The Federations response so far isn't grounded and doesn't seem of any great moment.

Bit difficult to sniff out drugs and firearms without sniffer dogs old by!

Well first up it's the daily mail so take it with a line of salt

Secondly I it is just as destructive as alcohol, and gives a similar heightened feeling of confidence and agitation


From the Guardian:
"The possibility that the use of illegal drugs, and cocaine in particular, might be fuelling recent outbreaks of violence at racecourses is also being addressed. In the aftermath of the disturbances over the last two weekends, anecdotal evidence on social media and internet forums has suggested that cocaine use is increasing at some tracks, with long queues for the mens’ toilets highlighted as evidence of the problem.

“We always assess the challenges of each raceday on a case-by-case basis,” Julian Thick, Newbury’s chief executive, said this week, “and give thorough consideration to any additional factors in the build-up to each raceday. As is the case across all our major fixtures, we will have sniffer dogs, drug amnesty bins and bag searches in operation across all our entrances on Saturday and an increased number of security staff wearing high-visibility clothing throughout the site.”

On the second point , we bow to your obvious knowledge.

An American divorcée, haven't we seen that before somewhere? How did that end I wonder? Still, another opportunity for the Mrs migginses of the world to go all "ooh, 'aint she luvly me old ducks" and go down the rose and crown for a pint of stout. And it'll give Pippa a chance to sell some more overpriced tat.

There was one pothole which was about 4 inches deep and about 2ft long, about 1ft wide, on a road very near to my house

If you hit it at 30mph it would literally sound like a bomb has gone off.
The road is a 40 limit.
It was also in the direct natural wheel path..


I agree generally round here the roads are not awful but they are not good either

A recent trip to Europe showed how much nicer the roads in France, Belgium, and Germany were.

If they repaired the road properly for let's say £50 / yard rather which lasted 10 years, rather than £30 / yard which lasts 2 years....

I agree, even the back roads in France are better than most A roads here. Still driving that golf??
