    I’d use words and reason rather than abuse to make my point; that’s all.

    I did start with that but the torrent of abuse made me respond in kind. Probably a bad thing and I will give up on the muppet.

    Or roll out 5G and send everyone a hotspot in the post. Much simpler.

    Aside from the fact it doesnt work that way. The advantage of 5G is tha…[Read more]

    From the outside, at least. From inside your head it must look fair comment.

    I guess you have more tolerance for being called racist than I do.

  • dissonance replied to the topic 2019 General Election in the forum Chat Forum 2 months ago

    Do you not think your language is distracting from whatever you think is the point you are making?

    I was accused of being a racist simply because I questioned raybans casual comment that he could recognise immigrants. As such I think it is warranted.

    his media guy (Jason Stein) seems to have told him so and then resigned because it was so obviously a mental idea

    I think he must be the only PR person happier than the Pizza Express lot today.
    Although that said he is probably dealing with a serious hangover after watching the show and celebrating dodging the mess.

    would the world repair itself and thrive?

    Even if we take our time wiping ourselves out and do more damage to the world doing so the likelihood is it would repair itself. End up being something completely different to what we have now. Even a full blown nuclear winter would, in geological time probably be recoverable from. I dont think there is…[Read more]

    Taking control and ownership, of this one particular state created infrastructure monopoly, needn’t be controversial at all.

    I am not convinced about the free bit.
    The utter failure of Openreach despite taking several billion in subsidies from the taxpayer does indicate it might be better investing directly.

    That’s the kind of language a racist would use

    No. The language a raciust would use is, unsurprisingly, your sort of language. Talking about being able to recognise immigrants and being a fan of eugenics.
    I note you failed to provide evidence of me being racist but doubled down on your stupidity.

  • dissonance replied to the topic 2019 General Election in the forum Chat Forum 2 months ago

    The fact that you are defending this utterly cretinous idea that immigrants are somehow the cause of our trails being clogged up is (and I’ve edited this to be polite) ridiculous.

    Luckily I am not you muppet.
    The closest anyone has come to making that claim was OutOfBreath and even then you need to twist the context somewhat.

  • Not outside of the Daily Express, no.

    The large multi national I work for seems to prefer “holiday” or “holiday season” on the global communications including the truly crap christmas cards. Local is more Christmas branded though up to and included having the “choir” sing christmas carols.

    I would have thought the main problem for an observant…[Read more]

    Dissonance, they implemented the one child policy for a few reasons

    None of which was your claim about about a demographic timebomb.
    Do you ever accept you are wrong?
    As for the relationship with population density. At a country level it does become rather more important. Especially in a country which had somewhat strained relations with…[Read more]

    Free stuff! Free stuff!

    its awful isnt it? We should just be giving the money to BT so they can spaff it on bonuses instead.

  • dissonance replied to the topic 2019 General Election in the forum Chat Forum 2 months ago

    They didn’t do the one child policy for density reasons, they did it to try and stop a demographic timebomb.

    No they went with it to avoid overpopulation according to all the sensible sources. It was known that it was liable to create a demographic timebomb. So aside from getting it completely wrong you are close.

    No but I don’t assume the…

    Tell me, out on the trail in Aviemore can you tell who is a tourist and who is an immigrant?

    You were the one saying

    immigrants do you see in Coed-Y-Brenin?

    Answer – **** none.

    So I assume you have some foolproof method you can use to identify those foreign types? With that talent I am sure you can spot the tourists. Care to let us into your secret?

    Just remember we had a referendum on that. Our utterly thick electorate turned that down too.

    Are you counting yourself in that number?

    We didnt have an referendum on PR we had it on AV since for that referendum Cameron had the brains to stack the cards and the libdems were incompetent enough to let him get away with it.
    AV is a very dubious…[Read more]

  • Have a crumpler which is still going pretty strong after several years commuting with laptop. Although now only sporadic use. Specific laptop pocket and case which works well.
    Have a Bagaboo which is very nice for general use. Not really designed for laptop though although think can get it built with laptop pockets.

    I think you missed out the word “fairly”

    Not really. Once you deploy the use of “hard” then it renders any modifier, aside from not, pretty much redundant. What on earth is fairly hard? Middle ground if so why not say it without the prejorative. If not then just go all out.

    Hence the power of the ERG outside of Brexit…. FFS he sacked almos…

    Who on earth on Johnson’s team thought it would be a good idea to go to Glastonbury.
    Was he just hoping the more hippy types would be too chilled out to protest?

  • dissonance replied to the topic 2019 General Election in the forum Chat Forum 2 months ago

    Do you want a chance to stay in Europe and accept fairly had left or do you want ultra right and leave?

    I think your use of “hard left” is somewhat misleading. Unless we believe Binners and co that its all a stalking horse the primary policies being proposed arent exactly hard left.
    For the tories again the policies being proposed (although…[Read more]

    What if … after decades of education the overwhelming majority don’t want to choose EITHER option?
    What if .. They reject the dualistic limitations? What if they want another viable option?

    The starter for ten is does the “overwhelming majority” want that or is it a minority who would prefer something else?

    So you can carry on with your self-indulgent historical revisionism if you like, but its frankly laughable.

    I am deeply hurt that such an intellectual force such as yourself feels this way. I note the complete failure to actually engage but just to attempt to sneer and claim superiority.
    Sadly you are a good example of why we are in such a shit state.
