Is this the UK's No 1 turkey voting for Xmas?

"David Cameron is to set out further plans to curb the rights of EU migrants to work in the UK by Christmas, insisting the British people and not Brussels officials are his "boss"."

I was called a bastard only a few days ago by some donkey who can't drive..I pointed out that my parents were married when I was born..however i then confused the idiot by stating I was not aware of who they were married too at the time!! :)

Whiteness? Racism? Personally, I think those of other races & colours should just stand back & watch the White Race destroy themselves.

I'll lay odds that all the White people on this project have personally witnessed either from a white individual or group, racism/hatred against their own. There are several other threads on-going where this can be clearly seen even though they are about specific topics.

The poster which I've quoted above mentioned journalists & Journalism in one of those threads. The Vitriol & hatred within that industry has not changed in over 40 years. When I left school until I reached 18, I worked for 2. The London Evening News especially with Lord Arran & his Wednesday column was hilarious as the vitriol against that man was plain to see in all departments - he was never sober enough to write that column. I followed that job by moving round the corner to the Bouverie Street HQ of The Sun(years before their move to Canary Wharf). Was I glad when I hit 18 & left losing half a weeks wages but I didn't care.

The quote above brought those memories back along with this which still makes me chuckle today:

For years one of my sisters called me that whenever we met at home. It always had me wondering as I have no knowledge as to why. It all came to an end at my fathers funeral 9 years ago. Entering my fathers house, in front of her 2 daughters, she said it again.

My response was to laugh, then stated the following:
"I find that strange coming from you as you dropped 2 before you married" After the service, her daughters asked me why doesn't their mother like me - I replied "give me a call when you find out" & told them both that she has to be 5 cans short of a 6 pack for holding a grudge for over 40 years.

No matter what race or colour one is, the dangers are not those from without but from within.

Nice world we live in, isn't it!

Watching those Air Strikes WITHIN Kobane:

Would not have been done without Western (Read American) 'Boots On The Ground', directing the strikes.

Ah, so you(America that is) are solely taking the credit for being badly organised where co-ordination is concerned?

These Air Strikes were apparently done with B1 Bombers. Were they flown by Non-American Crews? Who would be 'On the ground' directing these strikes?

Only "apparently"? Isn't US intelligence up to the task then?

Was I speaking about the other strikes outside of the populated areas? No.

Did I say, or imply, others weren't involved in The Air Campaign? No.

The ONLY Western, non-Arab, Country involved, was The USA, according to the article YOU supplied.

So...

Note to myself: Stop responding the silly posts.


There have been many articles posted, with one stating that the coordination between air & ground is sorely lacking, & as you stated, the ground direction is done by yourselves, hence the impression being seen that it's "Target or Bust"

Good points. We are all responsible for our own mistakes, but who is held responsible when those mistakes are caused by others interfering or manipulating us?

Ourselves?


They should be held responsible but when they have more 'power' than you, we're talking about fighting a losing battle.


Tell me about it! A sergeant-Major once told me that the worst battlefield is not one in a combat zone but the family one at home. Sad to say, he was right.

"There hasn't been a lot of communication between our air strikes and where they are on the ground... They are almost as surprised about the strikes as [IS]."

Well, you never have given a damn about Friend/Foe, as long as you bagged the target & able to "paint" the mission on your tally.

Bikers shame the politicians

The comments are great but the best one just has to be...

"Lets send all europe's soccer hooligans and just tear isis to bits."

The West & some Arab nations wants IS destroyed? Everyone knows that airstrikes alone are not enough & that the coalition forces do not want to be the first to place boots on the ground.

So why is it that the ones doing the actual fighting against IS are not supported?

Has IS made a strategic blunder?

After the last 4 episodes, I think the 2014 Xmas Special will be Jenna's last.

Yesterday's show did throw up a wobbly - What if the next doctor is a woman?

@Glenn, looks like you could be right. That mysterious woman sure looks like it could be Riversong.

Hope she recovers, but another possible Darwin Award? Cyclists "undertaking" large vehicles turning left are putting their lives at risk...

...the problem with most major cities is cyclists thinking that the Highway Code & the Road Traffic Act only apply to motor vehicles!

I can understand any authority in their stance against feeble excuses by parents in keeping their children away from school.

However, this really does say a lot about some of the a******'s employed within that industry...

Mum faces court over cancer girls absence

"Miss Capper said: "Libby woke up... saying that she's got a sore stomach and I get scared... I want to keep my eye on her."
The mother's legal team, Glaisyers, said the council was being "heavy handed and inflexible". "
