    The Slave Trade and removal of statues

    This is the root of many of this country's problems - shit rags like the mail, express and sun. Divisive, baseless lies dressed up as journalism, swallowed whole and treated as gospel by the credulous masses.

    What were the attendance numbers?

    The Slave Trade and removal of statues

    Oh look, it's barely even noon and those "brave" men who descended on London today to "protect" war memorials from non-existent threats are already throwing not just bottles and debris at the police, but Nazi salutes too. Nazi salutes. While claiming to protect Churchill and our war dead. Yep, this is how stupid those who shout loudest about their British "patriotism" are. Also note the distinct lack of masks amongst these entitled pricks, in direct contrast to the largely peaceful BLM protests last week, where pretty much everyone at least took precautions. Will these clowns receive the same criticism from those of you who have spent the last week blaming a potential second wave on the BLM demonstrations as well as sharing innocuous crap about "erasing history" and the film White Chicks? Of course not. And we all know why. https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=10163553639845704&id=511665703
  4. Netflix and UKTV were for some reason showing the unedited version that includes the Major telling a rambling anecdote that involves him using the n-word and another racial slur multiple times. Why they were doing that, when the Beeb had edited it out with Cleese's blessing years ago, is beyond me. But ultimately, the episode as it stood would have been grossly offensive and (I imagine) upsetting to a lot of people who have actually been subjected to those insults.

    Are we coming out of isolation too soon?

    Too right! As soon as they lift the interstate quarantine I'm coming for a holiday and to see the family!

    Reasons to be cheerful III

    Toots, I'm talking about that fool Farage who made an overtly racist statement, broke the terms of his contract and "voluntarily stepped down" from LBC of his own accord.

    The (all new) Brexit Thread

    Fantastical maybe. In the real world people only like cheap, they wouldn't pay the extra it would take to make in the UK. That's why manufacturing when abroad in the first place, to cut costs.

    They weren't protesting, they were going into town to check their eyesight...

    How is Boris Doing So Far?

    More whataboutism. This is nothing to do with Australia and their chickens. It's not really about chickens to be honest. It's completely to do with the government promising one thing and then doing an about face. But you are so bent on trying to turn it into another Aus Vs Eng post, you missed that

    How is Trump doing so far?

    Agreed, But at least Obama tried to fix it - have a read about his "consent decrees". "deployed extensively by the Barack Obama administration in the wake of previous high-profile police killings of unarmed black men. They included the death of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, in 2014; 12-year-old Tamir Rice in Cleveland, Ohio, that same year; and the 2015 death of Freddie Gray in Baltimore, Maryland. Under Obama, 14 consent decrees were enforced upon troubled and discriminatory police agencies." How has Trump contributed to help the situation? He reversed all of that work - https://nymag.com/intelligencer/2020/05/trumps-george-floyd-obama-protest-police-violence-kneeling.html
