  1. True, your beloved Jeremy would get kicked out after his party for six in 2020
  2. What do you mean. If it’s regarding my personal preference to not be labelled as cis then I am exercising my right as others do to be known as any of the descriptions they choose to give themselves if it’s the cis thing then it’s meant to be that you are on the same side as your biological construction.

  4. step backwards - Why people he proposes to serve - Who does not have their interests at hear t - which interests unlike Corbyn - who drove Labour voters away so much they voted Conservative and lost 2 GE's so what's the point of him becoming Prime Minister? - Because, if he became PM then Labour could actually have power and be able to make changes to the system instead of sitting on its backside waving a paper in the HoC doing absolutely nothing like it has done for the last 50 years
  5. if that is correct then i will happily stand corrected and withdraw the point
  6. It doesnt matter what Colston did at the time or how offensive the statue was to some people. In the eyes of the law criminal damage was caused and now there is a precedent in place that future cases can be defended against because "it offended me so i destroyed public property". I may personally agree with you but we are talking about law here and any lawyer worth his salt will now use this case to defend people. So where does it end now? where is the line drawn? Do nationalists start to take down the statue of Prince Albert at Grimsby because it offends them due to his role in the british empire?
  7. Why is it excellent news, they broke the law so now there is precedent for anyone to cause criminal damage because they are offended by something
  8. How? by robots, AI or the dust off an android which just happens to be whizzing by earth at that time?
  9. So you can have a "very good standard of living without the need to work" So who works to provide the services needed (medical, energy, water, transport)? So who works to provide the food both growing and making? So who works to provide the infrastructure to enable this unworkable utopia? So who works to decide what work is needed or does the whole population of the world get a vote on everything? So who works to establish boundaries between geographical areas (after all in this brave new world of peace love and harmony and everything for the people there still has to be geographical areas and maintain them? So who , if all the non working people are busy developing new ideas (isnt that called research today in the real world, which is a job) then who decides that they are good ideas and should be implemented? So who is working to getting rid of religion as that is historically one of the biggest causes of possession and conflict and also telling others what to do.? Having a brief review of the book your post is false, your claim that Bastani states there is enough resource in the world. This is not accurate view of the book. Bastani in the book claims that space mining and obtaining minerals from asteroids is to be a source of energy and resource. He also states that robots and AI will be used to take over the majority of the workload form humans So who works to design and programmes the robots.? So who works to create the AI required to run these operations? So exactly how are you going to get minerals from asteroids? This book came out in 2019, hardly set the world on fire has it and not really "gaining ground". Bastani is an left wing ideologist who has previously set up a digital media company to promote his views He also has previously claimed that labour can only win under Corbyn (no wonder you like him Anna) and that momentum can help Labour win (well that shows how far reaching and accurate he is) So using his theory then when Covid struck a year after his book was released then if we were living in his vision - who works to create the vaccine? I think the following review in WSJ published recently sums up the book well https://www.wsj.com/articles/automated-luxury-communism-11621185487 At first I thought it was a joke. I still do. A couple of years ago, there was a stir around Aaron Bastani’s book “Fully Automated Luxury Communism.” It’s a manifesto for the “postwork” movement. Technology will “liberate us from work” and automation is “the path to a world of liberty, luxury and happiness—for everyone,” the book advertises. Cue rainbow-belching unicorns. The Atlantic wrote that “the vision is compelling.” The New York Times helped promote it. And it sure feels like the Biden administration is trying to implement it. Naturally, it’s complete baloney. The idea isn’t even original. It’s the plot of the 2008 Pixar- Disney animation “WALL-E”: Tubby humans in personal mobility vehicles leaving planet Earth on a luxury spaceship as robots like WALL-E clean up the industrial wasteland. Kid-friendly propaganda.
  10. https://uk.news.yahoo.com/piers-corbyn-anti-vaxxers-jack-and-the-beanstalk-pantomime-milton-keynes-theatr-113913761.html?guccounter=1&guce_referrer=aHR0cHM6Ly93d3cuZ29vZ2xlLmNvLnVrLw&guce_referrer_sig=AQAAAJk_hbh4qlSr19EJDbxULtHUYzRq7g-H3kr_Bt5HJWm8afP31iGUi06cUWxbrXs82UrMa6OtvhM1cF2pez9hCKTUUFR9BoNcOdNAZM95SrQT2vXsYnPOEh0u4a57ZcVbpHDliQRkXjq9fQDaZyM2LHrefCS4MWWlcKlg-cDk8RIW wow, way to go Corbyn, let’s go scare children at a panto. You really have to wonder what they were thinking... "hmmm where can we get our message across that we dont like vaccines".... "i know, lets go to a pantomine and scare some kids, that will really help our cause"..."good idea Piers, you're soooooooo clever" what a p****
  11. hmm, new poster first post asking to go to a dropboxlink........................................ not doubting you but looks susp. Can you find it on the 3 words site and put those in so we can have a look on a map. Its probably the old paper mill which you can see https://rivelinvalley.org.uk/wp-content/uploads/2021/02/RivelinValleyBoards.pdf
  12. I have no knowledge of the black cab industry but a figure of £10 an hour would indicate that you are making (at best) 2 journeys an hour?
