I would like to second johnythefox. The government has never struck me as 'using political correctness', unless TheTruth's grievance is that he is no longer allowed to have a marriage between two...

If you are trying to establish a neat theory, 500 years ago would surely take us to the era of witch burning and mass pogroms against the Jews.

One step ahead of you then.

Maybe you'd like to fight that one out with John Huxley. You both have the same kind of belligerent and personal style, so it would be entertaining to watch you tear...

I thought he was in individual working to his own agenda, such as it was? He doesn't seem to have been backed by a gang of friends in his action, unless there is a lot more to this story than we...

Not for the first time I feel queasy about our cosy buddying with the Saudi government. The Taliban really are their baby, and yet here we are pretending that Saudi Arabia are our best friends in...

I really think you exaggerate. The guidelines can be summed up as "try to ensure that everyone feels welcome". Nothing more than that. Nothing is easier than to organise a works do that excludes...

Are you actually saying that her reviews were a greater threat to freedom of speech than the innumerable death threats/ rape threats she received for them? Well well well.

Presumably, yes, as with the Romans who also offered freedom of religious belief as long as it was not seen as a political threat to them.

Here?



I'm pretty sure she was not the only person in Sydney crying at the siege. Indeed, it seems a very reasonable response to me. I have often cried at things in the news.

I am not convinced that that is a simple question.

But I guess Islam arose among a particularly successful group of people. The Arabs were well educated, strong, widely travelled and financially...

Our two local tescos always have a food bank collection.

I think the co-op sign is perfectly sensible, as do most people as far as I can see. They are not saying, "buy extra food and make us more...

There is a hierarchy of death of course, but I'm not sure those two news stories show it; they both dominate the news on their respective days.

I must admit my immediate response is not a warm glow of affection. I nearly linked the clip and only wrote 'hmmmmm', but I thought that would be annoying.

Slightly odd and unexpected:



Must admit I thought they were all the same lot, ie they go to and fro through the porous border. But here is the Afghan Taliban not wanting to be associated with it.

The Britain First site is a piece of work.

"82 less future terrorists. 82 less future UK child benefit claims".

This person has more in common with the taliban than they realize.
