McDonell did his piece about Mao's Little Red Book, do you recall? Fine, a joke, a joke about a mass murdering dictator. I don't think there's anything wrong with it, nothing should be excluded from debate and.or humour. But don't start complaining when some spergs do a Sieg Heil at a Trump/Alt Right event.

A joke referencing the recent Tory love-in with the Chinese Communist Party. ...What was that you were saying about logical inconsistency?

And I suppose you're just going to carry on ignoring that, and Cameron and Hunt's simpering to Saudi Arabia and the Contras? (In their defense, I suppose, the House of Saud hasn't murdered the "millions" you say Castro is responsible for.)

No, it was a joke about how the government were apparently sucking Chinese cock and handing them crucial national assets at knock-down prices.

Saying McDonnell's quoting Mao was "a joke about a mass murdering dictator" is like saying Jimmy Carr's "safety in numbers" gag is a holocaust joke.

A joke about our government selling our assets to China, a country still run by the mass-murdering regime he set up. That was the joke. "Ha ha, since you're now friends with the oppressive regime you better read the dogma and keep it in mind."

Now, what's the actual joke with yelling Sieg Heil at a Trump event? "Ha ha, we're nazis, nazis are bad, but we're not really so it's ironic and thus funny" ?

I feel its not going to be strictly passports but any form of identity document and with it a quick search of national insurance records before they can register you with the doctor.

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.

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.

>>79589
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.”

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
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pY3wkEyAjeY

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:
http://askakorean.blogspot.co.uk/2016/10/the-irrational-downfall-of-park-geun-hye.html?m=1

>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?

This in the same week that everyone was accusing China of faking its GDP graph. I am sure there is nothing to see here.

There has been a lot of discussion earlier in the week about the Chinese GDP and how in recent years and measurements, it has become suspiciously stable, far less volatile. It seems suspicious to me that GDP numbers come out today, against all the recent run of trend, that show our economy apparently growing.

>against all the recent run of trend

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.

Are you one of those people who have had enough of experts?

The pound is still at $1.22, so our GDP growth is a fairly small consolation. Our balance of payment hasn't improved, which is a worrying indicator.

It's been five years since the shooting of Mark Duggan, which sparked the riots of 2011; and to commemorate that, BLM are trying to shut down several UK cities. They've blocked roads in Manchester and Birmingham, tram lines in Nottingham, and the motorway entrance to Heathrow in London. Their goal is to"mourn those who have died in custody and to protest the ongoing racist violence of the police, border enforcement, structural inequalities and the everyday indignity of street dolphin rape".

What do you lads think of this? Brave oppressed folk standing up to a corrupt establishment that seeks to take advantage of them? Uppity wogs wanting more benefits and sympy?

More or less did a segment on violence and shootings in the US. They found that blacks are not statistically more likely to be killed by the police.

78742 unilever raising prices by 10% due to brexit
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. There is clear evidence that his views changed substantially, due mainly to his experiences during the Boer war and the Bambatha Uprising. Gandhi is regarded as a national hero in South Africa and was credited with helping to overthrow apartheid.

I'd assume it is British national party related quote that that it is something related to that, but it could easily be one of the many gender issue filters. Neither would have surprised me. But given it is nautical themed rather then Inuit themed it must be about women right?

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)
