79574 gov gives "charity" £6.8 million to force poor women into not having kids
A scheme which tries to stop vulnerable women repeatedly having babies which will be taken into care by offering to help them on condition that they have contraception implants is coming to Bristol.

The scheme, called the Pause programme, supports the vulnerable women who are at risk of repeated pregnancies.
The scheme has been running as a pilot in seven areas in the country and now a new Government injection of £6.8 million in cash will see it started in Bristol too.

The programme works by supporting the vulnerable women for 18 months if they use long-acting reversible contraception, such as an implant.
It began in Hackney in 2013, and has since been rolled out to Doncaster, Greenwich, Hull, Islington, Newham and Southwark.

How many black women does this effect? Less than .1%? How many rioters out for a fresh pair of Air Jordans and/or sack of Basmati Rice does it take to set race relations to a very low ebb? Less than .1% of the population of any one ethnic group? I'm all for rolling this scheme out in other cities. It's not Brave New World, or even what we had before Hitler did his things, but it's a start.

This is madness from the angle of consent. Vulnerable women are being presented with the option of an invasive medical procedure with the carrot of extra support at a time of widespread cuts to social assistance.

How can this be considered a non-coercive choice when it resorts to bribery over letting them make a choice based purely on evidence. The fact that the government is getting involved further brings back some painful historical memories of how we used to treat women who didn't conform to moral expectations who found themselves at the mercy of the poor law.

I don't think this targets Muslims so much as those who suffer from mental handicaps. The website makes reference to those who don't know how to get up and wash themselves for instance.

Speaking from my experience working in a family law court the kinds of sexual abuse that goes on against such women from figures who have power of them is sobering. Its not from the groups that necessarily come to mind either but in my hometown bus drivers especially will begin brief sexual relationships with vulnerable women and then use their power to ban them from public transport when they get bored which destroys their capacity to do much of anything. This is the grim world we live in and targeting the consequences isn't going to fix it.

In an exclusive interview ahead of the annual Tory conference starting on Sunday, the Work and Pensions Secretary revealed that cuts to jobless hand-outs had reduced the number of workless households in council homes to the lowest level since records began.

He said: "We're not just getting people back to work, we're making real inroads into that stubborn part of the out-of-work group who are in housing estates and unwilling to work.

"We are beginning to change this dependency culture that Labour bred and are turning it into an independence culture where people see they can take control of their own lives."

Mr Duncan Smith signalled that further measures to tackle welfare dependency will be unveiled at the party gathering in Birmingham and promised to tighten limits on benefit claims by migrants from other EU countries.

There is not a fixed number of jobs. Immigrants create jobs:

>But, the report’s authors argued, the idea that immigrants crowd native Britons out of the jobs market “is built on the false premise that there are a fixed number of jobs in the economy.”

>Instead, they said: “An increase in the number of migrants in the labour force can actually help increase employment opportunities. Increased employment means greater demand for goods and services. As supply increases to match this demand, even more jobs may be created.”

>They added: “Arguing that migrant workers will ‘crowd out’ UK-born workers is the same as arguing that women will crowd out men or older workers will crowd out younger workers. This is based on the same lump of labour fallacy.

>“An increasing proportion of women have joined the labour force over the last 30 years, but these increases have not coincided with falling employment rates for men.”


By the same token, if all of those on the dole were actively trying to find work the number of employment opportunities would actually increase.

Only if they were finding work.
Which would presume they had the skills to take every available job. Lots of those 463,000 jobs will be in skilled work while lots of the 2-million-odd will be thickos barely fit to stack shelves.

Seeking work does nothing. Only getting work increases demand for goods and services. (Well, if you're spamming applications everywhere you might create 1-2 new jobs in the "rejecting your application" department.)

78788 The bad comedy of the Scottish ''National'' Party

After seeing this on the news today I finally got the joke known as the SNP. The joke is that the SNP is the antithesis of a nationalist party. She is a blatant Westminster style Marxist globalist who, if she ever managed to secure scotlands independence, would sell it to the EU in a heartbeat. It's like I'm living in an Orwellian state where everyone is the opposite of who they claim to be

Nationalism is Globalism
Independence is EU
Multiculturalism is Nationalist

I would be struggling for breath right now if I did not realise that idiots actually believe the SNP is a nationalist party. Can't she have the decency to rebrand it as the Scottish Globalist Party or something?

Sturgeon has made a career out of being Salmond's underling. I have serious doubts she'd have won 2007 (and she did stand for leader at the time, withdrawing to let Salmond in), even against a government as shite as the Labour administration of the day. (One must remember there was only one seat in it.)

Though I have been reminded of perhaps my favourite quote from a Labour representative.
Lord Foulkes: The SNP are on a dangerous tack at the moment. What they are doing is trying to build up a situation in Scotland where the services are manifestly better than south of the border in a number of areas.
Colin MacKay: Is this such a bad thing?
Lord Foulkes: No, but they are doing it deliberately.

Boy George then tried to amend the Scotland bill to bugger free tuition. Nice chap.

79435 Korea
What is going on with South Korea and the president? I saw someone mention KPop and what not here, so maybe they can enlighten me. I have spent the last few dozen minutes just digging and trying to find out what is going on, but it just seems so surreal and weird that I can't really tell if I am being had, or if it really is real.

This is weirder than the whole Brexit and Trump thing.

The best source I found was from this website:

>But not with Park Geun-hye. Her corruption was not self-interested at all. If anything, her corruption was self-sacrificing in favor of Choi Soon-sil. Among the numerous revelations, I personally found this the most pathetic: Park Geun-hye gave Choi a sizable budget to purchase the presidential wardrobe, and Choi embezzled most of it. Instead of purchasing the clothes that befitted a head of state, Choi outfitted Park Geun-hye with crappy clothes that she had her cronies made with subpar material. There is a video of Choi's staff smoking and drinking while eating fried chicken, right next to the suit meant for Park Geun-hye. At one point, one of the staff members handled the suit without even wiping chicken grease from his hands, while breathing smoke onto the clothes. Park Geun-hye would wear this suit on her presidential visit with Xi Jinping. For accessories, Choi gave Park the cheap leather purses and clutches that her gigolo designed. This could not have possibly escaped Park's notice. Even assuming the unlikely possibility Park Geun-hye might not have had the discernment to know firsthand (unlikely because she grew up in the lap of luxury,) the obvious cheapness of Park's clothes and bags even made the news. Yet nothing came of it. Choi Soon-sil dressed Park Geun-hye liked an unwanted doll, and Park, the president of the country, did not care.

So far, I think this is how things have/is happened/happening: The president's parents got assassinated and she was brought up and brainwashed by a guy who used to be a Buddhist, who then became a Christian, who could speak to dead people. He told her he could speak to her mum. That weirdo had a daughter who can also speak to the dead, and she basically runs Korea from the shadows because the president is her puppet (because brain-washing? I don't know).

People found out about the whole thing because the president's puppet master left her tablet behind when she was leaving Korea for Germany, and whoever found it basically saw that the puppet master was correcting the president's speeches, dressing her, etc.

All sounds weird. Maybe having a dear leader and cults is a Korean thing. I wonder what the North Koreans think of this.

Kpop lad here, yeah, it's a bizarre going on. I can't give a better explanation than the link you gave, most of the mainstream media doesn't care or isn't giving the full story, doesn't really help that Korean is a worthless language to learn for westerners and the Korean media is very insular and cares about external perception.

Don't think the Choi family are/were really into any religion per se, rather it's some local pagan Shamanist bullshit, but all for the purpose of enriching themselves. Disturbingly, these witches may have had a hand in the Sewol ferry disaster which already seemed to have dodgy cult connections with the guy who ran the business. Anyway, President Park is an even bigger puppet than a potential President Clinton, so she probably won't last long.

Koreans are a crazy bunch though, the south isn't very much saner than the north.

There's a witness claiming the president has been under the influence of a "shadow cabal" of 8 oligarchs. In South Korea, this cabal of 8 women has been called '8선녀 (Pal Sun Nyo)'. To translate it literally, this means 'The 8 Heavenly Fairies'. Their head, Choi Soon-sil is the main target of South Korean media right now

>Brexit: leading banks set to pull out of UK early next year

>Britain’s biggest banks are preparing to relocate out of the UK in the first few months of 2017 amid growing fears over the impending Brexit negotiations, while smaller banks are making plans to get out before Christmas.

>A source close to Brexit secretary David Davis said he and the chancellor Philip Hammond had last week sought to offer reassurance that they were determined to secure the status of the City of London. However, the government’s stated intention to take control of the freedom of movement into the UK is widely recognised among officials to be a hammer blow to any chance of retaining the present terms of trade for banks, particularly given the bellicose rhetoric of major politicians on the continent.

>Browne, whose organisation has been in intense negotiations with the government, further warns the EU that banks based in UK are currently lending £1.1tn, therefore “keeping the continent afloat financially”, and that this arrangement is at risk. Of Britain’s position, he writes that banking is the country’s biggest export industry by far, and that the current trajectory threatens not just tariff-free trade but the legal right of banks to provide services. He says: “Most international banks now have project teams working out which operations they need to move to ensure they can continue serving customers, the date by which this must happen, and how best to do it. “Their hands are quivering over the relocate button. Many smaller banks plan to start relocations before Christmas; bigger banks are expected to start in the first quarter of next year.”

>It has been reported that Goldman Sachs is among those drawing up plans to transfer around 2,000 of its employees to a rival European city should the UK lose its passporting rights.


I spoke to my mother who works for a major bank and she has revealed that there has recently been a wave of job positions advertised to go work in Geneva. I guess reality has become a remoaner.

How can the government fix this? Is it even a problem when surely the manufacturing industry is about to take off?

What recent run of trend is this? GDP has grown for 15 consecutive quarters. Growth of 0.5% against a forecast of 0.3% is hardly way out there. This is all down to the services sector growing by 0.8%. Manufacturing fell by 0.4%. Construction fell by 1.4%. Agriculture also fell.

I love the story today that Tescos and Unilever are in a spat because the latter want to raise prices by 10% on such products as Marmite due to the slipping pound. Given the increased costs of importing products, as opposed to the false dawn with the FTSE reaching record highs by net exporters benefiting from being rinsed by foreign buyers, when will the brexit story turn?

What will happen if Britain discovers that in closing our borders and taking back control, we've made our weekly shop more expensive?

The problem is that absolutely everyone with any influences at all over house prices, has a vested interest in keeping them high.
Short of the country suffering a major recession or depression, the only way that house prices will ever be allowed to fall will be through the government subsidising every party who stands to lose out.

Gandhi undoubtedly supported apartheid and held dubious views on race at one point.

Gandhi was a reactionary dwarf with a vicious streak. Always principled to a fault... when other's lives were at stake:

1) His pacifism led him to suggest European Jewry should've committed mass suicide when faced with Hitler

>Hitler killed five million Jews. It is the greatest crime of our time. But the Jews should have offered themselves to the butcher’s knife. They should have thrown themselves into the sea from cliffs. As it is, they succumbed anyway in their millions

2) He demanded that his wife die from an easily curable affliction because he distrusted "Western medicine", only to make use later of exactly the same treatment

3) He preached virtual celibacy while fucking one of his male body guards on the sly, and employing his grand niece to sleep in the same bed as he (apparently he wanted to prove his saintliness by resisting an erection)

4) To the besieged British, he wrote:

>[If the Nazis] take possession of your beautiful island, with your many beautiful buildings. You will give all these but neither your souls, nor your minds. If these gentlemen choose to occupy your homes, you will vacate them. If they do not give you free passage out, you will allow yourself man, woman and child, to be slaughtered

5) He supported racial segregation in Africa and referred to blacks consistently as kaffirs (funnily enough, that was also Churchill's dismissive name for the Mahatma)

I don't know about this, someone tells a Pole to fuck off and I see a connection but I've not heard anyone complain about gays coming over 'ere sucking all our dicks. Homophobic attacks have gone up for the past 10 years so there is that but then again 'LGBT anti-violence charity' sounds a bit biased and we have the problem of rises in reported crime. Nothing against LGBT and voted Remain I just question the data.

>Nik Noone, Galop’s chief executive, said: “UK responses to hate crime are among the best in the world but our hate crime laws are far from perfect. The highest prison sentence a court can give for homophobic, transphobic or disability common assault is six months.

I mean its obvious they have an agenda and one that I don't agree with (raising sentences that is) therefore its doubly suspicious. The conclusion that should be reached is that treating causes of offence differently doesn't work because you just end up with a long list of special crimes and people upset that they aren't covered them. Lightly touching a someone in a threatening manner (without being ABH) doesn't in my mind justify more than 6 months in prison even if it motivated against a minority group and the money spent on punishment would be better used educating and the like.

Galop of course would love to put pressure on the government to raise sentencing and they look at the data to support that. You get me?

Good point made ladm8. The Guardian is up it's arse on such Brexit scaremongering matters. Pun intended.

If you look at the figures in the report, the 200% rise in gay hate crime or whatever is an increase the numbers being reported to that specific charity from like 7 to 21.

What would ol' Powell think of all this Brexit malarky?

Why are our politicians so shit today vs. back then? Powell was a University Professor by the age of 25 and thus deserves a modicum of elitism, whilst most of todays MPs are bred-to-rule fuckwits who are bland badly dressed facsimiles of the inbred monarchies democracy was supposed to usurp.

When I worked in an old folks home, the old yins used to sing his praises, but I used to think Powell was no more than a bigot.

Watching this, I find him to be a lot more sympathetic. I'm behind his views that Caucasian people should be able to be ethnocentric as other races are, although I would probably phrase my concerns using different language. His 'rivers of blood' speech seems pretty relevant with regards to the 'refugee' crisis.

He clashed with Heath, who we know now to be a dirty nonce so that's a positive for him. But Thatcher is singing his praises, and we now know her to be a dirty nonce enabler and potentially the anti-christ.

He was also a Unionist in Ireland and probably contributed to a shitstorm of the troubles, right? I'm not so up on my Pre-Blair political knowledge.

>We were talking about New Labour.
And that would be how you invited it. The rest of us were talking about Enoch Powell.

I think it's fair to assume that someone with a massive poster of Lenin has more than a passing acquaintance with the works of Trotsky as well.
You would imagine he had read about the various branches of communism before picking a favourite.

There are 100s of thousands of Trotskyists or Leninists in the UK then. Right.

>I think it's fair to assume that someone with a massive poster of Lenin has more than a passing acquaintance with the works of Trotsky as well.
The funny thing about the Labour Right's obsession with Trots is that for half of them, it goes back even to their radical youth, when they were anti-Trotskyist Stalinists.

To be fair, some probably just picked someone out of this lineup without knowing much about them.

Lads, I don't know if I'm a closet case Tory or something.

My dad was a factory worker and was, until recently, a lifelong Labour voter. Working class through and through, went on convoys to deliver food and supplies to mining villages during the strikes, absolutely delighted when Thatcher died, etc. The majority of my friends are Labour voters, with the few who aren't Greens. The notion of voting Tory shouldn't even be entering my mind, it's the sort of thing that gets ingrained as incredibly shameful, lower than vermin.

Then I moved to a Tory town. It was nice. After living in post-industrial shitholes which have been Labour strongholds for decades it was a pleasant surprise. People actually took pride and responsibility in their surroundings. When there were issues the local community actually came together to solve them, whereas I'd been used to people who would only get off their arses if it was to complain because it never comes into their mind to do something about it themselves. Labour want to keep these areas in decline so they have a ready made supply of sedentary voters who want their arses wiping for them.

The thing is, it wasn't even an affluent town. It was simply an area where people wanted to improve their lot. It's been an eye opener and has made me reevaluate my worldview. I don't know if the modern left is right for me, as it seems too obsessed with identity politics than anything. I don't want to be a champion of the working class as I've grown up around enough of them to know, outliers notwithstanding, they're largely thickos who didn't value an education or didn't have the effort to make something of their life in another way. I just don't know if I could bring myself to vote for them, though. Whilst I agree work should pay more than benefits I don't agree with the way they are going about things and I don't agree with their obsession with privatisation.

Does this make sense? I've probably oversimplified things a bit here.

Policemen go around punishing women because of how they are dressed. What nation am I?

Afghanistan? No, but close. I am the great French Republic.

So lads, why is it okay when western governments police what women wear, but barbaric when the barbarians do it? I don't even see any feminist groups raising an eyebrow. Maybe people just hate Muslims and don't see the weird precedent that is being set here.

HFCS 42 is around 100. HFCS 55, containing more of tehe sweeter fructose, is around 110-120, which puts it around the same level or higher than honey and maple syrup.

0.99 is HFCS 55. HFCS 42 is 0.92.


>The standard for intensity of sweetness is set by sugar with a sweetness level of 1.0. Compared to sucrose, 55% high fructose corn syrup has about 0.99 relative sweetness; 42% HFCS is 0.92

This is getting tiresome.

When I ate a lot of sugary, sweet foods, my sweat would smell sweet. If I didn't shower for a couple of days I'd smell fucking atrocious, but accumulated sweat over a few hours would smell sweet. Then when I started religiously eating at least 5 pieces of fruit and veg every day and cut out all processed food, I'd smell less sweet but I really wouldn't smell that bad at all, even if I didn't shower for 3-4 days. Even your piss smells better.

That's what I told my mrs anyway so she'd let me piss in her face.

Poor show, lad. You were at completely the wrong end there.
