When you render un to me that which is Lordo's, even as a result of you putting us both in the binary box you have to use to view the world, that just seems like excuse not reason from where I am sitting ;)

You need to get some sort of life - outside of this tiny forum. Otherwise you will end up with Lordoitis (albeit with reasonable English). Seriously. :wink:

See you in a few days.

Life! :lol:


Patterns

Post your own partial view publicly. When counter views and opinions are offered in response to your post, label them 'usual obfuscating BS' and then ignore them entirely. Instead tell the person making them to go get a life.

Yep see you in a few days no doubt.

Maybe you want to tell him to 'get a life' Londonrake ? ;)

Or how about self confessed conservative Ian Acheson ?

An extremism expert has blamed “crazy austerity cuts” for the dangers posed by released terrorists and accused Boris Johnson of misrepresenting the crisis after the London Bridge attack.
The “destruction of the prison and probation service” under the Conservatives lay behind the threat, said Ian Acheson, who carried out a review for the government, adding: “You cannot get away from that.” The cause was “privately acknowledged” by ministers, he said, urging them to admit publicly: “We went far too far, far too fast – we are now reaping what we sowed.”

The criticisms are hugely damaging for the prime minister, coming just hours after he denied any possible link between steep funding cuts and the deadly attack carried out by Usman Khan on Friday.

Mr Johnson has blamed Labour sentencing policy and claimed only a Conservative general election victory can keep the UK safe, triggering accusations that he is trying to weaponise the tragedy for political gain.

in fact labour introduced and ips system where a person can be kept indefinately if it is believed that this person is a threat. we even have more draconian meausers. a person can be held indefinately in prison without trial and he/she may not be told what their crime is. some of these people are tried secretly where only selected layers can represent them. thay could also be released but can be kept in close survailance. there are 3 figures banded about in the last few days.
there are 74 other in the same situation as usman khan
there are about 200 more which are a serious threat and are beein closely monitored.
then there is the figure of 2000 also mentioned which are of people of interest.

the obvious question is what the hell are the secret service doing about it. what happened to the method of infiltration like they did the exticntion people where police joined them to spy on them. if there are 2000 people of interest, is it that difficult to work out where do they go to get radicalised? lets say there may be 100 places where these things are going on behind the official imam's back and people are being radicalised in the background. surely it is not that difficult to findout exactly where and who is involved. pick them radicalisers out and the problem is greatly reduced.

but it seems even when people are offering tips on who they feel is being radicalised, the police is ignoring. if you want to solve a problem, you start by asking first of of what am i doing. should i be doing something more.

sitting back and spewing out a lot of hatred after the event only increases hatred for both sides and solves nothing.

they seem to be very good at infiltrating left wing organisations so easily but they are hopeless at any other organisations.

here are some interesting facts.

uk is listed 6th in the world for gdp and 39th on the gdp per capita.

what the hell is going on?
can anybody explain the such a drop in the list?

b'stard claimed yesterday that parliament had blocked the queen's speech.
was he right or was he telling a fib?
is he making it up as he goes along?

when the vote took place
the yes's were 310
the no's were 294.

is he unaware or does he make it up as he goes along.

donald trump this morning claimed he does not know where the rumour started from regarding nhs and american trade deal. he has forgotten he was asked about few months back and his answer was everything on the table when it comes to trade negotiations. b'stard than quickly jumped in and denied it saying nhs is not on the table. it is beyond belief that they will not want a slice of the medical supplies to the biggest healthcare provider in the world with their prices being two and a half times as much.

the asshle today claimed that he predicted the day before the referendum result that brexit will win. quick fact check shows that he said no such thing the day before. he only commented on the result the day after. these b'stards make it up as they go along.

we think of british democracy as being quite rooted in the system, after all the house of commons has existed since 1341. but how democraric was it and evenis it today when the pm has the right to prorogue parliament as long as he/she likes and it is perfectly legal.

Old Sarum, in Wiltshire, is one of the most famous examples of a “rotten borough”, where a constituency with a tiny (or, in this case, non-existent) population was still able to elect MPs.The abandoned medieval village technically had 11 voters, but none of them actually lived there – its only real inhabitants were a few sheep. Nevertheless, Old Sarum had two seats in parliament from 1708 to 1832. It was so valuable as a political opportunity that despite the land only being worth £700 in agricultural terms, it sold for £60,000, which is equivalent to tens of millions today

Until the Great Reform Act of 1832, different boroughs had different rules governing who got the vote. These stipulated varying levels of privilege – like having land worth at least 40 shillings, owning your own home, holding “freeman” status, or being a member of a corporation. In “potwalloper boroughs”, voters simply needed to live in a property with its own hearth, where they could boil a pot.

Based on these rules, in 1801 it’s thought that about half a million people were eligible to vote – which was around 16% of the adult population.


you cannot make it up.
