    He appears to have come from south of the river so I'll say no.

    Well, it’s a non-story picked up and amplified with a view to infuriating people and discrediting a movement. In this case a poll run by students - not themselves affiliated with BLM - about renaming a building that may or may not result in a request that will be passed onto the university. It’s almost nothing.

    Here’s an even more transparent case:

    If it’s true then it’s part of the story.

    Why, was it made by the same partially sighted geezer who did Ronaldo?

    What an evening of mirth you have had!
    Any new topics planned? Shall I suggest some areas you might find rib tickling? Would you rather it was colonial atrocities, racial or ethnic cleansing, or slavery and oppression related?

    I guess it's time for you to put me on your 'ignore' list, ff1d1l, as Brian suggested a few days ago.

    Nice one.

    Seriously though, I said nutters. Who knows what they will do next.

    Well, as I said, "..... It’s for kids".

    The ff1 gadgie has me on ignore, and along with a couple of others who also have me on their "ignore list" likes to make sure everyone knows it now and again. It's funny really, though a bit sad some are this way, we do all share a common interest here, after all.

    I agree he posted personal crap in your direction, I mean, where did that last sentence come from?

    That last sentence is really out of order.

    The statues thing is a harmless symbolic gesture but it does illustrate how pp are resistant to material change. If you’re pissed off over toppling statues just wait ‘til you see what really needs to be toppled. Then you’re really going to lose your shit, comrade.

    It’s not like the completely rational sanity of endless growth and prosperity predicated on rapid exploitation & consumption of finite resources propped up by trillion dollar corporate bailouts 1,2,3 & 4 never to be seen again are working too good for us all right now.

    @Brian oh well you know. I used to be a dye-in-the-wool leftie for a long time, and still am in many ways, but some of the lefties here rather push me to the right.

    Seriously, I wasn't laughing. You were.
    I don't see Brianiac's posts.
    Can you guess why?
