  1. That, “A Tory party spokesperson who was on the committee that chose Boris as leader” is not accurate as he was elected leader, not selected by committee.
  2. Has no-one told you that you aren’t a moderator anymore….?
  3. Cool story. Boris was elected in a Leadership contest in 2019 though.
  4. To be fair, I think it’s normal in the US for former presidents to be referred to as Mr President (or Madam President had there been one).
  5. I wrote in post 46 that black lives don’t matter to the black people who kill black people. Or white lives to the white people who kill white people. See the programmes and gang mediation parts of the Access UK site. When you have finished dictating to BLM about their need to solve black-on-black crime you should aim to tackle white-on-white crime (usually referred to as just ‘crime’ in the media) as well.
  6. Bolded bit. No, maybe not as a thought crime. But you can legislate against discriminatory acts. That's a bit rich. I still see people saying that BLM is racist because white lives matter too because they don't get that the original message of BLM was black lives matter too not to the exclusion of all other lives. Maybe people should understand BLM before telling them what to do? Access UK. Is there any irony in a white person speaking on behalf of the black community and telling BLM how to operate? BTW, do you have to be black to support BLM? Is it a membership-based organisation?
  7. No, by your logic the comparative question would be, "in the 80s should gay men have tackled homophobic violence committed by other gay men." You are asking why BLM focus on racism when black people kill black people too. It's quite obviously a false equivalence. If BLM focused on black people killing black people do you think racism would end? Have you checked to see if there are any organisations that try to tackle black-on-black crime? Are there any that aim to tackle white-on-white crime? Your figures show that there were 512 white people killed by white people between 2018 and 2020. Well, the original message was black lives matter too. Not to the exclusion of all other lives but too. It was a response to a perception that some think black lives don't matter. Black lives don't matter to the black people who kill other black people. But then, neither do white lives to the white people who kill white people. In the US, ask a black man if he thinks his life matters and he'll say yes. Ask him if he thinks his life matters to a white police officer and he might not. Do you see the difference?
  8. So? You literally had to walk through Sainsbury's and that still got closed down.
  9. 18 black people were murdered by white people between 2018 and 2020 according to your stats. Can you give us their names and all the BLM protests that took place? Because it seems you are suggesting BLM protest every black death by a white.
  10. Bolded bit. Yes. I think the media would have investigated any and every claim of poor character regarding the BLM activist and it would have been given plenty of coverage.
  11. Yes you are right about the hashtag BlackLivesMatter. In July 2013, the movement began with the use of the hashtag #BlackLivesMatter on social media after the acquittal of George Zimmerman in the shooting death of African-American teen Trayvon Martin 17 months earlier in February 2012. The movement became nationally recognized for street demonstrations following the 2014 deaths of two African Americans, that of Michael Brown—resulting in protests and unrest in Ferguson, Missouri, a city near St. Louis—and Eric Garner in New York City In the 80s do you think gay men should have tackled homophobia? Surely not, by your logic. The biggest killer of gay men in the 80s was AIDS!
  12. Bolded bit. Interesting analysis. I'm pretty sure there has been news coverage. Otherwise, how did you know she got shot? Your figures show that 18 black people were killed by whites between 2018 and 2020. So can you point us to the eighteen BLM protests that took place; one for each death? To back up your claim "If it had a white person shooting then it would be classed as a racist attack and all over the news and BLM would be taking to the streets again." Just out of interest, do you have the figures for how many white people killed white people and how many Indian people killed Chinese people? BLM was set-up in response to concerns regarding police brutality. Have you looked to see if there are specific organisations to combat black-on-black murder? Are there any organisations that were set up to combat white-on-white murder?
  13. Yeah, your post is. It would be better if there was no racism in any UK party. Don’t you agree?
  14. There were also Labour party supporters who said it was all a media conspiracy and/or denied any problem existed. I await to see their reaction if those concerned Conservative supporters use that same tactic.
  15. A crime. There are several different types of crime.
