When I see individuals saying they're not going to support t because they're Marxists, I could cry at the sheer stupidity of their cry. I doubt one of them has ever read Marx or even attempts to understand what it really is.

They hide behind the banality of "All Lives Matter" as it trying to reclaim the moral high ground.

They're going to turn their back on them if it happens when there's a crowd there? Good, let's be able to identify who the racists really are, because that is all the argument is about, preserving the racist hegemony.

No doubt the taking of the knee - I've done it myself on more than one occasion - will eventually go back to being a black symbol, very much like the clenched fists of the 1968 Olympic Games. That's only until the next unexplained black murder, and the nesxt......


No attempt at ethical or social seduction can eradicate from my heart a deep burning hatred of the Tory party. So far as I'm concerned they're lower than vermin. Aneurin Bevan.

Quoted from pen penfras


That the mere phrase "black lives matter" has an implication that other lives don't matter.


Yeah if you’re really dim, have no grasp of context and have been living under a rock for the past few years.

This point has been (regularly) explicitly explained, but if you want to pretend that you don’t understand it then that probably says a bit more about you than you’d hope.

It's funny how many people are suddenly deeply concerned about the plight of other non-black ethnicities. You lads could do a fundraiser for the Native Americans you know? I promise I won't appear and start accusing you of not caring about the Rohingyas.

Quoted from mimma
Marcus Rashford will be overlooked in the new years honours list.

He hasn't donated any money to the Tory party, he only helps poor people.


🤦🏻‍♂️



“To put it in gentleman’s terms if you’ve been out for a night and you’re looking for a young lady and you pull one, some weeks they’re good looking and some weeks they’re not the best. Our performance today would have been not the best looking bird but at least we got her in the taxi. She weren’t the best looking lady we ended up taking home but she was very pleasant and very nice, so thanks very much, let’s have a coffee”

Oddly (or not) James O’Brien touches on this issue in the final half hour of his show on LBC today. Well worth a listen. Especially for certain people.

Quoted from Boris Johnson


who said I was angry,and certainly not in the least bit threatened,  I belive that this movement is divisive, and equally racist,


Well if something upsets you so much that you turn your back on it the only reason I can think you’d do that is because you are either angry or maybe scared. Which one is it?

In point if fact it hadn’t served it’s purpose. Just look at how many complaints that act got on that talent show. 15,000 was it? I bet most of them claim not to be racist. As if!


Les Ferdinand thinks it has.

You’ll not be taking part in any minutes silence for remembrance day then, and demanding the iron-on poppies are removed from players shirts then yeah?


Only a complete nincompoop would come up with that comparison.

Remembrance Day is to remember those who gave their lives for freedom in many wars. Poppies are sold to raise money to support the Armed Forces Community.

And to top it all it's once a year not before every frigging football match.

Ah right. So that’s isn’t politicising sport but this is. Wars famous for being apolitical events...

I think as humans we should be concerned about each other Rodley be it black, white, brown etc . Hence were all part of the human race and all connected to the web of life. Ultimately though looking after our planet has to come first though. We have only been around as humans 200,000 years and in that short time we have done untold damage to the planet. David Attenborough current programme on the BBC "extinction "graphically illustrates that as well.

Its for this reason why I have had always so much love for the Native Americans that goes back many years and  goes in line with my own strong conservationist tendencies. Hence as other successful entrepreneurs  have said despite what we have achieved in our Western society via materialism and comfortable way of life we can learn so much from these people where most lived in harmony with nature. Hence without a sustainable planet to live on everything else just falls by the wayside .
