Great article...


Here it is...


It happened because you banned super-size sodas. And smoking in parks. And offensive ideas on campus. Because you branded people who oppose gay marriage ‘homophobic’, and people unsure about immigration ‘racist’.

Because you treated owning a gun and never having eaten quinoa as signifiers of fascism. Because you thought correcting people’s attitudes was more important than finding them jobs. Because you turned ‘white man’ from a description into an insult. Because you used slurs like ‘denier’ and ‘dangerous’ against anyone who doesn’t share your eco-pieties.

Because you treated dissent as hate speech and criticism of Obama as extremism. Because you talked more about gender-neutral toilets than about home repossessions. Because you beatified Caitlyn Jenner. Because you policed people’s language, rubbished their parenting skills, took the piss out of their beliefs.

Because you cried when someone mocked the Koran but laughed when they mocked the Bible. Because you said criticising Islam is Islamophobia. Because you kept telling people, ‘You can’t think that, you can’t say that, you can’t do that.’

Because you turned politics from something done by and for people to something done to them, for their own good. Because you treated people like trash. And people don’t like being treated like trash. Trump happened because of you.

Tommy is right

maybe we need to round up hill shepherds and treat them how they want to treat others.
I mean Hillshepherds are the most useless people in society, they are obsolete which is why they can't cope with change and succumb to fear.

I think that is what people like Tommy don't realize, they haven't won. they have just shown that we need to clean up the rubbish. When A lazy fucker that grew up in nation with access to excellent education Was too Lazy to take advantage rendering them so useless that an immigrant that hardly speaks the language is more employable.

the only one to blame here is people like Tommy , too lazy to look after themselves despite have access to some of the best resources and advantages.

We have voted to restore uk democracy and uk parliamentary sovereignty.

Rescuing democracy from a fascist dictatorship is a win!!!

I am not a shepherd and I don't live on a hill.

Our education system is designed to dumb down children and create sheep... I however, have retained the ability to think for myself.

Well said Tommy. Brussels has too often overruled our legal system. Perhaps now foreigners won't go running to the EU Human Rights bunch because they might be ejected from the UK. ALso perhaps now we can put a stop to thousands of foreigners trying to get here. No, BEFORE ANYONE SAYS IT, I'M NOT A RASCIST, JUST DEFENDING MY COUNTRY. Enough is enough, we need the money for hospitals, schools, housing, improvements to infrastucture etc instead of wasting it on other people who's countries can't sort out their own problems.

Sorry about all that, but the cold weather has made me a bit touchy.

BTW, HELLO DIBS, lovely to see you again after a long time. How are you and HF?

Well said Stardesk agree with everything you have said there Smile We are both very well thank you - my dad is very very ill at the moment with Parkinson's and dementia he went into a nursing home last week - seems to be improving and wanting to go home lol - he has gone in for respite but we need to know how he improves before he can even think of coming home . Time will tell but he has a lot of life left in him and strong as an ox Smile How are you ?

Hi Dibs. Sorry to hear about your dad. I thought dementia was incurable? I don't know much about parkinson's disease. Perhaps he's in the right place, because he'll have people looking after him 24/7 instead of going home and being a worry to you. That isn't being selfish and heartless, you can't devote every minute to him.

Me? Not too bad but waiting to go to the hospital soon to have my heart scanned after I collapsed a couple of weeks ago, I had a 24 hr heart monitor fitted but it showed nothing wrong but, the doctors thought it might have been caused by tablets I've been taking to stop any malfunction of the prostate gland.

Tommy my old mate, i've learned over the years that lies are eventually brought to light and you're put on the spot.

Anyway look after yourselves. Going now, night night.

how is fucking your economy going to do any of that??? Suspect Suspect Suspect

you don't give away a lot compared with all you stole to build the infrastructure You ran into the ground through sheer laziness
lets not beat around the bush
ALL the problems are because brits(on average) are lazy, you had it all a pissed it away

Now becoming isolationist is going to some how (never explained how) going to make you capable of competing in the globalized economy.
How? I mean it obviously is only going to make things worse. any one who availed themselves of the education system would know that. sheer laziness is what it comes down to. without the empire to bankroll the bludging you cant afford the services Because you don't produce enough of value. You used to produce more but everyone else has improved leaps and bounds and you've been lazy buggers resting on your nations past laurels.

Please explain what parts of our infrastructure were built with materials stolen from where?

everything you built prior to 1970.
the vast majority of it came from Australia India and Pakistan.

until federation Aussies had to send a portion of all mining to England. We sent vast forest of timber to the England. Sand and stone too. Literally where do you think the raw materials came from?
Let alone we were taxed and the money sent to the UK to pay for infrastructure we'd never use.
AND all the Cattle and Sheep that British lords raised on Aboriginals land and sold sending the money back to England.

Same with India, Pakistan and New Zealand and to a lesser extent Canada.

and how it gone Since you weren't sent resources without having to pay for them?
Since you have had to rely on Englishman's labor?
it been steadily in decline ever since.

So where do you think all the sheep and cattle came from...?


And all the people who arrived there to do any of the work that made anything happen there...?


Do you really think that the uk was a complete barren wilderness before any British arrived in australia...!?


Do you think Australia would be anything other than a barren wilderness now had it not been for others landing/intervention there years ago...!!!???


You do realise that the uk has been a well established trading nation for over 2000 years, don't you...!?


While you indigenous Australians would still be sitting in bushes picking dingleberries out of your arse cracks even today had it not been for our foreign intervention...!!!???


Even though you were supposedly sitting on all that vast amount of wealth and building materials... for countless millenia... you still wouldn't have thought of anything, even today, in the way of using any of it in even a slightly technical/constructive/productive/beneficial way...!!!

yes you sent over a few sheep and cattle to breed.
But got sent back 10 fold with in 50 years. and 100 fold after a century. let alone the timbre was worth more than that in the first shipment back.
And you do realize the Convicts where treated like slaves, unpaid and hardly feed, the product of their hard work sent back to the lazy buggers in England.

And no it wasn't a trading nation 2000 years ago (it wasn't even a nation and it was hundreds of year before the First Anglo invader arrived. the Welsh owned it all back then) it was a backwater that Romans took for political purpose and decide it was not worth the effort so let it go.

Plus you literally prove you are nothing but an ignorant racist, I presume any Englishman with an ounce of brains or work ethics left back then to come to the new world, leaving nothing but the lazy and useless like yourself. Like I have said Resting on your supposed laurels even though those laurels where made and paid for by the colonies. Now you have no colonies you have nothing, your just spending what's left in the pot. no creation, no production of sufficient value to cover your wasteful life style.  

Today the average Australian produces 50% more value than the average Englishman. yet you expect then same services as hard working people Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes

you blame others because YOU don't work hard enough to keep up with them.

And PRAY TELL answer the original question. HOW is killing off you trading capacity going to achieve any of the things  you think will magically happen?

And before Australia it was coming from the Colonies that would become the USA Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes

1776 US revolution
1777 Capitan cook sent off to investigate 'Terra Australis' and see if there was somewhere to establish new colonies and find Timbre (which the UK didn't have enough of to maintains it's navy let alone build anything)

So true, veya.

But there is one thing you missed in how the English are great: how to use others. Listen, they thought up colonzation and how to use slaves. There's genius in there.

nuh Cool Cool Cool the Romans wrote manuals on the use of Slaves and colonization Razz Razz Razz Razz

they did fine in the 'old world' playing by the old rules...
but the revolutions of the USA and France put an end to those things.
Once people got power and a nations wealth came from its citizen's work ethic, they have done much more poorly.

A lot of it is comparative. they are struggling to compete with the more dynamic new world nations or the emerging economies that are adapting rapidly to Globalization.

the vote to go backwards is literally the worst thing they could do, it definitely will not improve things Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes
and none of those that support killing their trade capacity can explain how killing their trade capacity will make them rich enough to cover the life style they want.

probably the most hilarious thing is the British Brexit supporter that is also pro trump, Considering trump has promised to be insular and look after the USA first and foremost. Who are they going to trade with?
I mean their only chance of salvation was becoming a Vassal state to the USA, and developing global trading partners via the US connections but Trump is moving in the opposite direction. which is bad for the USA but probably even worse for the UK. I wonder if they try and return to the EU with their tail between their legs if they will be accepted? Suspect Suspect Suspect

nuh Cool Cool Cool  the Romans wrote manuals on the use of Slaves and colonization Razz Razz Razz Razz

they did fine in the 'old world' playing by the old rules...
but the revolutions of the USA and France put an end to those things.
Once people got power and a nations wealth came from its citizen's work ethic, they have done much more poorly.

A lot of it is comparative. they are struggling to compete with the more dynamic new world nations or the emerging economies that are adapting rapidly to Globalization.

the vote to go backwards is literally the worst thing they could do, it definitely will not improve things Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes  
and none of those that support killing their trade capacity can explain how killing their trade capacity will make them rich enough to cover the life style they want.

Romans were good too. I'm not saying the English were the only ones.

But Trump won't accept anyone in from one of THOSE countries that have had terrorism within their boundaries.  That's Belgium, France, Germany, Turkey...and I'm pretty sure it includes the UK.  I mean, London, 7/7 and Lockerbie...and do the Irish troubles count?

exactly
with Obama or Clinton the UK could have reasonably expected to be able to develop trade with the USA and the USA is a big enough market to keep them afloat.

Trump more or less directly said he Going to reduce trade and always choose US good and services first. which since the UK is fairly similar in the goods and services it can output for trade, it is going to make it very hard for them to sell into the USA.

President Trump has really put them behind the 8 ball when it comes to options. Neutral

even those few nations he hasn't bad mouthed (Australia and New Zealand are about it scratch ) are expecting to have reduction in their already established trade with the USA... In an interesting turn of events Turnbull is planning to run with the TPP still even though it is greatly reduced with the USA's exclusion. (Another thing Trump has ALREADY done) it could be good for Australia since we are now the biggest western power in the deal. HOW DID THIS HAPPEN? 2190311264 it'll depend on if we can keep enough of the Asian nations in it.

Veya my ear lady, there's several things you are overlooking, or refuse to acknowledge, nameably:
The economys, trade, industry, science, tecknowleadgly that many colonies now enjoy were set up years ago by the British. Had it not have been for those factors those colonies would still be backward. Furthermore, our people migrated to what was then a new world, yes indeed some were sent by 'transportation' for crimes commited, but their descendants pulled up their socks and helped make Australia what it is today.
Where would you be today had it not been for those facts? Still wandering around in a wilderness worshipping the Wagilak Sisters?

And no it wasn't a trading nation 2000 years ago (it wasn't even a nation and it was hundreds of year before the First Anglo invader arrived. the Welsh owned it all back then) it was a backwater that Romans took for political purpose and decide it was not worth the effort so let it go.

you blame others because YOU don't work hard enough to keep up with them.

And PRAY TELL answer the original question. HOW is killing off you trading capacity going to achieve any of the things  you think will magically happen?

the vast majority of it came from Australia India and Pakistan.

until federation Aussies had to send a portion of all mining to England. We sent vast forest of timber to the England. Sand and stone too. Literally where do you think the raw materials came from?
Let alone we were taxed and the money sent to the UK to pay for infrastructure we'd never use.
AND all the Cattle and Sheep that British lords raised on Aboriginals land and sold sending the money back to England.

Same with India, Pakistan and New Zealand and to a lesser extent Canada.

and how it gone Since you weren't sent resources without having to pay for them?
Since you have had to rely on Englishman's labor?
it been steadily in decline ever since.
 


So where do you think all the sheep and cattle came from...?


And all the people who arrived there to do any of the work that made anything happen there...?


Do you really think that the uk was a complete barren wilderness before any British arrived in australia...!?


Do you think Australia would be anything other than a barren wilderness now had it not been for others landing/intervention there years ago...!!!???


You do realise that the uk has been a well established trading nation for over 2000 years, don't you...!?


While you indigenous Australians would still be sitting in bushes picking dingleberries out of your arse cracks even today had it not been for our foreign intervention...!!!???


Even though you were supposedly sitting on all that vast amount of wealth and building materials... for countless millenia... you still wouldn't have thought of anything, even today, in the way of using any of it in even a slightly technical/constructive/productive/beneficial way...!!!




Yes, Australians have the Brits to thank for their progress, whatever that is.

I worked in care homes and nursing homes for the elderly for a number of years. I cannot tell you how important it is for the residents to see their family and listen to the music that they love and talk about the times that they lived in.
Don't stop what you're doing. You're not just lifting the spirits of your beloved father but also lifting the mood of the whole home.

Also veya... you claimed that everything built in uk before 1970 was using wood, sand and stone stolen from Australia...

We are an island surrounded by sand... we have also always had shit loads of stone about the place, and if we really needed some then there are countless nearer places that are much easier to get from...

But I'm interested by your claim about wood being massively stolen and shipped to uk for building all our infrastructure... can you tell us what type of wood this was...?
