Re: Enter the Wokeness

Saw that on CNN today. They interviewed a holocaust survivor for his take on it. Truly shocking that a major "news" network (Fox) can broadcast that kind of warped opinion without challenging it....

Re: Canada is a scam

I think it's just BE jargon to differentiate between native-born Canadians and non native-born Canadians (which is a mouthful to say).

Re: The Black Lives Matter movement

A toxic take. Extremists stoking up the racist fire.

Re: Europe via Belarus

Sorry, I misread the chart as my screen didn't display the word not. Seems Britain leads in the xenephobic stakes.

Re: Europe via Belarus

The stats suggest that Britain is less xenophobic than the EU !

Re: Europe via Belarus

Re: WTF in America

I liked that article. And I've always enjoyed Jon Sopel's news reports. Interesting that the polarization in the US has become so great that some families are avoiding Thanksgiving.

Re: English Channel

I have never fully understood France's willingnesss toward that agreement. And it did seem to me during the Brexit debate that it is something they would no longer want to continue.

Re: English Channel

If you're asking me should the smugglers be silenced in some way, have their freedom to propogate their lies curtailed by the state, then no I am not for that freedom to be taken away. The mechanism...

Re: English Channel

Hard to believe. Really hard to believe. This quote sums it up:

Gabriel Attal, added to criticism of Johnson’s letter on French television, calling it “mediocre in terms of the content, and...

Re: Homesick - 8 years

Well, I don't know why. I suppose I read some of your positive posts on NZ and never saw any pining for the UK type posts so I assumed that you were a happy Kiwi camper. Having said that, I don't...

Re: Europe via Belarus

Yes, I meant Peppa Pigboy Johnson !

I caught a few minutes of his risable performance. I only hope that it is the trigger for his eventual replacement. Such an embarassment for a PM.

Re: English Channel

No idea. I don't like calling it the English Channel BTW, but that's what it seems to be called. In speech normally refer to this country as Britain or the UK, and only say England if I want to...

Quite a recovery from the 90's though.

Re: English Channel

It might, but both Belarus and the Channel migration routes are likely to go on for some time, and the political aspects are somewhat different. Anyway, better not to tar Albania with these British...

re: English Channel

Re: Enter the Wokeness

Nevertheless, it's only by confronting those beliefs that the truth can be established. On the 2020 election you seem to contradict yourself. Voter fraud is the claim and as you point out it's been...

Re: Enter the Wokeness

QAnon is an example. Underground does not literally mean underground, it means into a subculture where bad ideas feed off each other. It's polarization.

Shutting down has been happening for...

Re: Enter the Wokeness

My wider (and original) point is that free speech is essential. There is a tendency on the left to dismiss certain points of view and to curtail debate. Where debate happens, all well and good.

Re: Enter the Wokeness

There are always going to be extremists who will think preposterous things and not budge. You listed many. However there's another section of society that is less extreme and open to discussion. ...
