  1. Little Tommy Robinson is to be bailed while awaiting a retrial of his Leeds Crown Court contempt charge. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-leeds-45029755 What the less bright among his supporters don't realise is that he may actually end up with a longer sentence. I guess Robinson isn't that bothered as I hear serious amounts of cash have been pouring into his coffers while he's been in the Big House.
  2. 'Eight banks have signed up to a code which will refund those people who are tricked into transferring their saving into fraudsters accounts.' I'm slightly conflicted by this as while banks should obviously refund anyone who has suffered a loss due to failings in their own security systems, should they refund someone who willingly hands over their dough to a scammer? Isn't this just going to encourage further scamming by reducing the onus on customers to be vigilant with their own security. I accept that there are cases where the elderly or the vulnerable are frightened into doing something unwise and these cases should be viewed sympathetically by the banks, but why should those who willingly hand over money despite endless advice about not doing this, be rewarded for their carelessness? "Scam victims to be refunded by banks" https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-48385426
  3. Strange that. I thought it was Thatcher’s Government who divided the nation, abolished the idea of society, championed ‘greed’ as a good thing, made it illegal for workers to support other workers by taking industrial action, sold our national utilities to her mates in the city and bought off many working class voters by flogging them their council houses at knock down rates. Maybe I got that wrong!

    Euro Elections

    To be fair, Farage and the UKIP group did turn up en masse for the session where their pensions were discussed. At least that shows that they have their priorities right! 👍 Mind you, they’d have to go some to beat the Barking Council BNP member who managed to attend zero council meetings in four years! 😵

    Opinion? How about you tell me which of those things aren’t true?

    Lol. The Trump fan boys are getting very touchy! 😢😰😓 Apparently the deluded fool has just tweeted saying that no one is protesting his visit and all he is seeing is love for him and love for america! 🤪

    Are you saying that a majority of people in the UK would welcome a vile racist and misogynist, anti-abortion, white supremacy apologist, self confessed sex offender to our country. You really are letting the 2016 referendum result go to your head! 😂

    Typical reactionary nonsense from someone trying to undermine the protests. Fortunately those protesting neither care about nor need your permission to attend.
  9. He should do. He will struggle with funding his nationalisation programme at the best of times. Firefighting the effects of a no-deal Brexit will cost a new Labour Government even more money that it can’t afford. And he won’t even have the luxury of throwing his hands in the air and saying ‘Nothing to do with me mate!’ as even the dumbest among us is in no doubt that Corbyn has supported Brexit from day one.
  10. It’s a song. Get over it! I would equally defend the right of a punk band to sing a similar song about Jeremy Corbyn or Vince Cable. The Dead Kennedys wrote a song called ‘Kill the Poor’. Do you think they were inciting folk to kill poor people or trying to examine attitudes to the poor? Should Elvis Costello’s ‘Tramp the Dirt Down’ now be viewed as a hate crime? In other news, the Tories are considering changing the eligibility to stand for party leader rules in order to cut down the number of candidates. Apparently only one candidate at a time is knocked out which means that there will be at least 10 run offs before the final two are put to the membership. Apparently 1922 Committee chair Graham Brady was asked to comment about this but declined possibly because he is thinking of standing himself! 🤣

    LGBT issues and morality

    Rather than causing suffering by discriminating against LGBT people, then pitying them for their suffering, maybe a better strategy for the Catholic Church would be not to discriminate in the first place then there would be no need for the pity! 👍 just a thought!
  12. Are you seriously equating an anti-Tory song with an antisemitic song? Seriously? 😵

    LGBT issues and morality

    My agenda is a very, very simple one. LGBT people should be treated no differently than anyone of any other sexuality or preference. They do not need your pity or anyone else’s.
  14. Since when has singing racist songs at a political event been art?

    LGBT issues and morality

    Once again, you are making intolerance and bigotry a competition. It is not and should be condemned wherever it is seen. And maybe you should tell all those gay men in Uganda being threatened with the death penalty for being gay that it is ‘relatively rare’ for LGBT people to receive hassle from Christians.
  16. It is nothing to do with singing them it is to do with artistic freedom. Are you going to ring up the Metropolitan Police and report the many antisemitic paintings in the National Portrait Gallery as hate crimes?
  17. They are not, they are just songs. It’s called art!

    Did that fool from the Sun who interviewed him not mention what Johnson had said about him when endorsed him for Conservative leader?

    It will make a big difference. Last time he came there was huge coverage of the protests on those US news channels who actually bother to report stories outside the US. (including Fox News) Apart from being a massive royal sycophant, Trump is here to get photos and video of him and his trophy wife meeting the Queen and walking around Buck House for consumption back home. It takes the tarnish off it somewhat when it is also shown that he is regarded as a toxic racist and misogynist but many citizens of the USA’s oldest ally.
  20. You do know that they were song lyrics, don’t you? 😂😅😂

    LGBT issues and morality

    Why on earth would they need compassion? Are they ill? Are they disabled? Has some great tragedy fallen upon them? Read Pope Francis’ comments as ‘we should have compassion for these poor afflicted people who have been dealt a bad hand in life but they are still god’s creatures so we should not think ill of them’. Patronising nonsense! 😡
  22. A warning for those who are relying on Donald Trump to ride in on a white horse and save the UK economy from post-Brexit meltdown with a 'tremendous' trade deal. The US Congress has made it clear that it will not approve any trade deal which in any way jeopardises the Northern Ireland peace process.
  23. I think the problem people have with this is not that it was not taxed at the time of the theft but that it was SORNed. I’ve had a number of vehicles (including motorcycles) stolen over the years and I can’t say that my first thought has ever been “I must cancel my insurance and declare it as being off-road”. There is always the expectation that the vehicle will be found and in all but one cases it has been. People only SORN vehicles that are still in their possession. If your appeal had been successful and the bike had been found, your son would then have had to re-insure it from scratch and re tax it from the beginning of the month that he had already paid for. I’m sorry, it just doesn’t add up.

    I didn’t single it out, Anne Widdicombe did. If she’d converted to an extreme form of Islam or Judaism my comment would have been the same. Both of those religions have LBGT groups but that doesn’t mean that the majority of their adherents aren’t homophobic. https://imaanlondon.wordpress.com/ https://www.haaretz.com/whdcMobileSite/misc/tags/TAG-gay-jews-1.5599143

    LGBT issues and morality

    What a ridiculous thing to say! She converted from a moderate form of Christianity to an extreme form. If she had converted from being a Sunni Muslim to a follower of Wahabism or from being a secular Jew to an Hasidic Jew I'd have said exactly the same thing. The more extreme a religion the less tolerant and more bigotted it's adherents become.
