    The Slave Trade and removal of statues

    You're not a follower of Mosley? We'd all be speaking German if he had his way.

    Stop the boats!

    The 'should we give money to our poor people or foreign poor people' is an 'all lives matter' type argument and it is wearing a bit thin. Basically those people who argue this don't want to give money to anyone. It is a populist straw man as it is irrelevant and you can't argue against it. There are many factors affecting homelessness, least not mental illness and drug addition and abuse. Of course we should be addressing home grown homelessness, but you are not going to solve domestic homelessness by kicking a few immigrants out on the street. We created much of the problems which caused refugees, and we have a moral obligation to fix them. If you were worried about the cost, you should have worried about the cost of all the bombs we dropped to help create the situation. How many billions did we waste on bombs over the last twenty years? And to what gain? We've created refugees and terrorists. Yes, there are a few economic migrants taking advantage of the mess we helped to create. So does that really give us justification to ignore our responsibility?

    I was talking about Priti Patel.

    That's the parents. The children become the home secretary.

    The (all new) Brexit Thread

    You are confusing the state government with the state. They are not the same thing. There is an awful lot of money in California. If it was a country I think it would be the fifth largest economy.

    The (all new) Brexit Thread

    How many laws have we repealed? Gdpr is a nightmare to enforce. Have we repealed it? We will have 99% of those laws anyway, as they are common place laws. We will have to see whether the money was worth it. But I think our influence was worth it. Without us, the EU will change because we no longer have influence. It may change to something we don't like. Simmos dreaded European army for example.

    The (all new) Brexit Thread

    Immigration is immigration Paul. The USA has two land borders, and still most illegals arrive legally. So you think the UK with it's sea border will be different? You could argue that those who come in by dinghy are more dangerous because they can't get tourist visas. But people don't seem to be grading illegals.

    Was I being grumpy or was I right?

    We disinfectant all deliveries, even our grocery shopping. Saying that I had to see the doctor on the weekend and take my mask off to let her look in my mouth as I have a mouth infection and all my salivary glands are blocked. But the risk is still very small ATM in both the UK and Australia.

    Worst day so far

    Have to disagree. The states ensure that state level items are dealt with locally. It's one of the major problems with England that the region's outside London don't get represented.

    They get given a really big house in Chelsea, and after the accent starts to fade, they become Tory MPs, and then mouth off about stopping immigration, but don't actually do anything.

    Being an English teacher, I'm guessing he probably didn't speak German, Hungarian, Italian or French or Dutch. So I'm guessing his best chance of getting a job would have been England. Some people don't have a self worth unless they are contributing.

    Iceland is looking better and better. I'm sure they would do a deal.

    The Slave Trade and removal of statues

    I hadn't heard of them before, but they seem to be an organisation a bit like the new York guardian angels. https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&rct=j&url=https://freedomnews.org.uk/liberation-and-reparation-witness-account-from-afrikan-emancipation-day-reparations-march/&ved=2ahUKEwiS_bTZuv_qAhUFZMAKHco-AN8QFjAHegQIBhAB&usg=AOvVaw1fQ1CrxYG1lrLBzN92bjEw&cshid=1596472511946 Nothing threatening about that. I would have thought people would have applauded attempts to reduce knife crime.

    There seems to be white people marching, and quite a few watching. They don't look that bothered.
