    And that has what, exactly, to do with the left?

    The world has moved on, what matters to people has changed - some of it for the better, some of it for the worse, and which is which depends upon your own priorities and moral compass. None of it was the doing of a political grouping, it was never part of the agenda of the left to change such things.

    You have it backwards. Exploration of non-capitalist ideas has often been on the checklist of those who are (or were, if their movements are succesful) radical - but it was only ever that way round. All elephants are grey, but it doesn't follow that if it's grey it's an elephant. Many liberals are left-wing in a right-leaning nation, but there's little correlation the other way, extreme left wingers are very rarely liberal!

    I don't blame him. He's probably extremely 'hacked' off with having his portfolio treated as if it was of no account. On the other hand......!

    To avoid accusations of bias, this is the Telegraph's take on something that would have been a major scandal a few years ago but now just seems background noise: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2017...etings-israel/

    Not just some lackey clumsily overstepping the mark, but the actual International Development Secretary (who oversees aid to Palestine) in off-record freelance meetings with political leaders and a lobbyist for Israel and without informing the Foreign Office.

    It's all good. Probably.

    Meanwhile, in home news: https://www.theguardian.com/politics...ence-secretary

    One Minister called him a 'slimeball'. A backbencher said the appointment was 'Unbelievable. Ludicrous. Astonishing'. Even without the cover of anonymity, Sarah Woolaston MP tweeted 'There are times when offered a job that it would be better to advise that another would be more experienced & suited to the role'

    This will come back to bite May. It seems that the Chief Whip was part of the ongong cover-up of inappropriate behaviour amongst party members, and now he is not in the Whip's position he will be unable to silence any investigation that reveals this.

    Somebody else said this will be May's last mistake. I hope so - she is the embodiment of the Peter principle.

    On a purely common sense point of view I would hope for a Defence Secretary that has at least some experience and knowledge of the defence and the military. As much as he will rely on his more experienced advisors and MoD civil servants, ultimately he will set strategy (at least be accountable for) and that concerns me here.

    These little b*stards should never see freedom again, and personally I'd bring back hanging and watch them dangle.

    As for these 6 years is nothing

    It is a shame they haven't mastered eye transplants because on the top case I would remove the eyes from the scumbag and transplant them into his victim.

    Further to the Church of England's opinions on 'gender matters'.

    The D. Tel. reports (Tue. 14th inst) that the chief education officer for the Church and responsible for matters to do with 'tutus' and 'tiaras' is named as Nigel Genders.

    Delicious !

    Hi All,
    MrBlueSky - On another forum I would get hung out to dry if I posted those videos, It's been a long time coming but I think some hard to take truths
    are coming and it will hurt the believers...

    Geoff.

    Is there actually any point to these videos? The forum is for debate; not endless copying and pasting of You Tube videos.

    Not, it seems that anyone is using the forum any more!

    Bruce, the apparent lack of forum activity might not be unconnected with an e-mail I received from James Martin about three months ago asking me if I could be 'a little more PC' presumably referring to various brisk exchanges of views then prevalent.

    I don't know whether any other contributor received similar advice !

    Hey Bruce, have you watched any?

    All of these videos are up for debate, but apparently they don't seem to appeal to anyone, perhaps the lack of interest might be a response to the clamp down of free and open debate specifically on this forum to the moderators, who if I remember, threatened to close it down and restricted patrons it only if they used the other forums as well.

    We're being a taint Orwellian aren't we...

    The quelling of people who don't follow suit as others are sadly rather more prevalent these days, as shown in college and universities across the nation "no-platforming" of guest speakers, apparently its nearly 4 out of five are! (https://www.theguardian.com/educatio...-ban-sombreros)

    Still, is this worthy of discussion?
