Re: Kim Jong Un on horseback...

I don't know which horse and which "fat lump" you were referring to, but your comment could apply to either... :lol:

Kim Jong Un on horseback...

...going up a sacred mountain, according to this story: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-asia-50064893 Now what famous scene does that remind me of? Of course!

Re: Extinction Rebellion

But the French rail unions were carrying out strikes and were threatening to do so into the future, it was brought home to me by being at St Pancras and seeing a third of all Eurostar services cancelled. The French rail strikes were about changes in working conditions which the unions perceived as ...

Re: Diplomatic Immunity?

You'd be surprised at how many different interpretations of "kosher" there are amongst not-so-observant Jews. Possibly my parental home was unique in its inconsistency? Very early in life, I must have learnt that pork was taboo - but I didn't yet know that bacon was a form of pork, so ther...

Re: Extinction Rebellion

The danger is that the message becomes messy and confused. Someone who might support you on one of those issues might not support you on the other. Let them. Does it really matter? There are always side campaigns. In the big Stop The War march in 2003, many protesters carried "Free Palestine&q...

Re: Extinction Rebellion

I propose to join in the People's Vote march on Saturday. I plan to carry a poster which, as well as carrying a prominent anti-Brex**it message, also contains a token of support for the XR movement, along with the XR logo. After all we have a lot in common. Won't you just confuse things by trying t...

Re: Extinction Rebellion

I'm just wondering, who are these "people going about their normal business"? Have the XR been blockading railway or tube stations? Have they been blockading cycle paths? I don't know for sure, but I doubt it. No: the people who have been blocked from "going about their normal busines...

Re: Extinction Rebellion

Well - the Met Police have acted in true Hong Kong spirit, and aggressively cleared Traf Sq of the XR protesters . I think this says a lot about what English values regarding decency and peaceful protest, have descended to. I propose to join in the People's Vote march on Saturday. I plan to carry a ...

Re: Diplomatic Immunity?

Bear in mind all the big supermarket chains actually only supply Halal. Sorry, but that's nonsense (how would you define Halal pork? :shock: ). Where did you pick up this canard from, could it have been an Islamophobic website? It is true that all New Zealand lamb supplied to the UK is Halal, becau...

Re: Remainers Angst thread

Dunno about the Scottish indy ref. Our son, who was living in Scotland at the time, but is not ethnically Scots, was able to vote on the Indy ref. As far as I know, he voted to stay in the UK. Possibly the majority of other non-Scots living in Scotland did the same. I suppose the SNP, and others, m...

an unfortunatey story of a sim hijak https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-50043230 I've been reading that story, too. All rather worrying. I just tried logging into my account. It asks for part of a "PIN" number, then part of a password. That's the system it's always used, ever since I f...
