Current Affairs
  • No apology necessary you pink honkey motherfucker. We understood.

    Panorama tonight made for grim viewing. I honestly hope Paget Smith ends up in jail but sadly disgrace and resignation is the best we might get. Disgusting bald cunt.

    The contractor, subcontractor, architect, and ktcmo Chief exec must be shutting bricks. I foresee jail time. Forget corporate manslaughter, misconduct in public office and lesser crimes will be in play. Then there is negligence in tort.
  • Gotta say, I bawled my eyes out when big man luka reunited with the small Asian woman he helped. Got a major hit of feels
  • Misconduct in public office doe. Life sentence for that shiz. Fucking go for it. Deffo ktcmo. Definitely. If we don't charge anyone for mipo, the CPS dude looking at the case should damn well get charged with that him or herself.

    Vid link? Or was it on Panorama?

    If the latter I'll get it on iplayer tomorrow.
  • I don't think I can sit through it.
    So fucking angry right now but in a way I haven't been angry before.

    Nothing to worry about (given my recent record just thought I would confirm that).

    Someone mentioned it earlier (kow?) about my feelings of being lumped in with cunt of the week (I know not rational).
    I feel part of it is an awakening of what minority groups feel all the time. Partly aided by my best mate (2nd gen Indian Hindu) really opening up about his experiences recently.

    Just an overall feeling of influence lost.

    I don't want my country to be like it is right now.

    Edit: sorry, this isn't about me, just sickened by it all.
  • And just watched a police car do a burnout at a zebra crossing outside my flat, lose control and swerve into the bus stop layby, nearly missing a car.

    I went back to part of cunt forum (its actually two, both relating to each other, the other I won't even go into it as its the one that mainly fucked me off completely the other day) to fight some of the hate, fueled by one guy claiming Universal Income is a joke because some people (poor) might piss said benefit up the wall by going to Magaluf, as they do now, aka a carry on of the 'they've got big TVs wank'. I included sources and such to highlight just how much vitriol and anger there is within those whose voice means fuck all these days (I didn't touch on poor immigrants as its not a sector I have much experience in, bar a few I see at my 'job club'). I can copy and paste it if you want an idea of that aspect, Liv, its shit I see first hand.

    This country is monumentally, as in completely, fucked to the core right now. The problem is a hell of a lot of the population don't realise it, or if they do, its easily ignored in their minds.

    Another guy was essentially claiming that if you grew up in an area with friends, family etc, and the council won't offer you a place there but will in, say, the other side of the fucking country, you should accept it, as people who work sometimes have their rent put above their means and have to move. As if the rent is put up, so they quit the job and move from Manchester to fucking Dundee or something. Oh and those in Kensington in such flats may get more housing benefit than those in, say, Hull, so they shouldn't be there as it causes anger and resentment amongst the working classes. This latter guy is on the dole.

    These people exist. They have no emotional attachment to a class so to them, they are as they are to the Government. A number on a spreadsheet, a statistic.

    In fact fuck it, this is from the second cunt forum in relation to a point I made on the first (its complicated). Its not a troll comment, this guy has been a member since 2003 on both. The first bit is a quote from a post I made:

  • I would rather you didn't paste it mate, I can well imagine.
    Manipulative cunts preying on tribal mindsets and exaggerating them all for their own gain. There are clear and obvious links to the rise in hate and the way in which our print media functions. Yet there is fuck all we can do but wait for our parent's generation to die out, by which time they will find a way to strangle the internet as well.

    I am convinced the beginning of the end of Western civilization as we know it was 9/11, just a question of how long it takes.
    I remember having Media Studies class the morning after 9/11 and my teacher saying "this will be the biggest political event of your lives". He wasn't wrong.

    Aye I was 17 for 9/11, and with what it led to, it woke me the absolute fuck up. Its been downhill forever since.

    I will say I've been fucking livid about the whole thing, its abhorrent, disgusting and something which in modern society should never fucking happen. I've been screaming cunt at shit I read and see regularly.

    EDIT: Yeah sorry shouldn't have offered to link it, I missed the bit about you stating you're angry in a different, new way. Adding more to that isn't a good idea. My bad man <3
  • Ah no worries mate.
    Wasn't as bad as I have seen.

    And, yeah, I have shouted cunt at my phone/monitor far too often recently. Mainly when I see May's face.
  • monkey wrote:
    Apologies.

    I got the context, but it's just that I've not seen that word in writing in a long time...

    So was sensitive to it.

    Also, God forgive me for saying this, but the media needs to get back to leading with the Grenfell story again.

    There's so much wrong there, it almost impossible to quantify.
    Ninty Code: SW-7904-0771-0996
  • Yeah, Grenfell ties into all that austerity and Tory enablement of corporate greed and the country's attitude towards its poorer citizens and so much more.

    I'm ideally placed to comment on this, since I live in Preston. If I lost my home and was told the only option was for me to be re-homed in Kensington, I'd tell them to fuck right off. Even if I wasn't working.
  • These people have jobs. Working poor. They wanna stay in Kensington because they can work there. (Plus a support network in community, eg specialist foods etc) No work in Preston, and maybe just Indian and polish foods.

    I'd also add that they might also have strong support networks (friends, acquaintances, the local cafe staff etc) and the sense of maintaining a connection is important in recovery. Some people will have to leave due to how they cope with the trauma. Others will equally need to remain in the area.

    You see this in smaller towns with strong community cohesion after major disasters like bushfires. Some people have the drive and desire to rebuild and others need the help but still want to stay. They inevitably take a number of years to process the grief and trauma and return to a sense of normality, but they should be afforded the choice to remain. 

    Regarding @Liveinadive 's post up above. That to me reads like a normal, human response of empathy. It makes you feel guilty realising how you might have been towards other people but surely with new knowledge you can always try to do nicer things. 

    I was listening to an interview on LNL with a woman who wrote the book "You must come alone" on some encounters with ISIS in 2014. She was saying that it is incredibly important to make "outsiders" in any context feel welcomed and included and part of the society. Maybe that's just the attitude we should all have. We don't need to share the same beliefs as everyone, but we do need to share the same cities and its much nicer if we're friendlier to each other.

  • A vile bigoted scumbag appeared on Good Morning Britain yesterday, interviewing EDL leader Tommy Robinson
  • It's not just Austerity.

    It's the whole globalized neo-liberal wet-dream writ large.
    Inescapable house prices increases due to lack of social housing, lack of rent controls, a market of speculators and wannabe "developers" and the opening up of the market to the absentee Emirati/Chinese/Russian oligarchs.

    And it's fucking everywhere.

    The concept of housing's primary purpose being a place to live, has been dead for years.

    A generation ago housing was 5-6 times your yearly salary. It was possible to get a mortgage on a single salary. What is it now? x10 x12 x15?

    The housing crisis is the biggest stagnant millstone in the economy and there's scant few politicians worldfuckingwide who care to do anything about it. How many of them are also Landlords, despite that being a clear conflict of interest.
    Wind Waker is a bad game
  • Also: the voracious appetite to destroy social protections. Austerity is one part of the jigsaw but even if you are fucked by a business how do you pay for a lawyer? Tribunals cost loads, legal aid is slashed and your lawyer might be a trucking company anyway. Even then your recourse for action is struck because the legal backstops for safety get torn up in call me daves two for one offer on regulation, just so rich cunts can more easily exploit more money/profit out of people.

    Explosions in a Brussels train station.
  • Bloke with a suicide belt was 'neutralised' apparently.
  • No other casualties, thankfully.

  • Anyone see the BBC news technical cock up online just now? Was hilarious.
  • Nope. What happened?
    Come with g if you want to live...
  • Hugh Edwards sat there for about ten minutes looking stern and serious whilst the intro graphic just played repeatedly at random times. Just as he was about to speak it seemed to reset. You could see him getting angry.

    He started playing with his mouse and writing things down but always looked on the brink of exploding.

    Was very funny.
  • This battle is about to explode
    Wind Waker is a bad game
  • Heh.
    Come with g if you want to live...
  • Water bomb plane crashed in Portugal forest fires. These pilots are incredible, to perform low level payloads with massively varying air temperatures. Proper heroes.
  • Were they killed or did they escape? That kind of flying must be incredibly difficult as you said with the thermal variations.
