    News tonight on arrivals by plane who, once here, went on to claim refugee status.
    28,000 last year.
    64,000 over the last four years.

    No info on which countries they come from and the most common reasons they give.

    Funny thing: he visited my then-home and was gobsmacked by the three shelves of books in the home office. On returning from the lavatory and passing through the livingroom, he exclaimed in absolute wonder “Yo, I can’t see the walls. All those books you have to read!”

    Happens still – my co-worker has quite a bright 9 yr old whom I met in the tea-room recently, I ended up loaning her some age-appropriate paperbacks to fill the hot summer days. Co-worker however only allows the kid one book at a time, and herself never reads a book, and owns none.
    Arky, so pleased to hear you will do more great work teaching maths, I think of you every time I share an episode of Wheeler Dealers with hubby. They made suspension springs in a workshop the other day. From scratch. The old-fashioned way ! You would have loved it !

    You are right; it is a myth that lesbians use dildos because they have an abhorrence of male genitalia. Doesn’t make sense, does it.

    Just like hamburgers and sausages made out of vegetables.

    A Paris Metro passenger was left critically injured on Friday morning after liquid, believed to be a type of acid, was thrown in their face. It comes after two other people suffered acid burns in a separate incident on the Metro.

    But the French do have their priorities all tickty-boo- No more mum’, it’s Parent 1: French ban ‘mother’ and ‘father’ from school paperwork

    By CHARLES BREMMER
    THE TIMES
    9:55AM FEBRUARY 15, 2019
    The French parliament has voted to banish the words “mother” and “father” from official paperwork in the education system to tackle discrimination against gay parents.

    Children’s documents will instead refer to Parent 1 and Parent 2. The move has angered conservatives and Christians who argue that it signals the country’s moral decline.

    Groups fiercely opposed to gay marriage have called for civil disobedience if, as is widely expected, the move is approved by the Senate.

    Traditionalists claim that the next move will be to delete the words mother and father from the French language.

    MPs from President Macron’s Republique en Marche party passed the legal amendment in the interests of “anchoring in the diversity of families of children in the law”. Gay marriage became legal in France six years ago.

    The amendment says: “To prevent discrimination, school enrolment, class registers, parental authorisations and all other official forms involving children must mention only Parent 1 and Parent 2.”

    The measure was welcomed by the parties of the centre and left. The Federation for the Council of Secondary School Parents said: “This is a very good thing. It takes into account the changing situation of families. This is in tune with the new law against bullying because children who do not fit into the usual boxes are targets of bullying.”

    It was not backed by the education minister, Jean-Michel Blanquer. The Association of Homoparental Families gave it a mixed welcome because it forced all couples to choose a hierarchy. Alexandre Urwicz, its president, asked: “Who is Parent No 1, who is Parent No 2?” However, he said that it was a good step towards the elimination of parental gender in official paperwork.

    Anne Hidalgo, the Socialist mayor of Paris, has already imposed gender-neutral language in all the city’s administrative affairs, using the terms Parent 1 and Parent 2 as well as other inclusive language. The move is strongly opposed by traditionalists because it distorts French grammar to combine masculine and feminine endings when referring to people.

    Laurent Wauquiez, leader of the conservative Republicans party, the main opposition, promised to reverse the move if elected. It would feed the gilets jaunes anti-system revolt because “our citizens do not share anything with the political class nor the policies they are imposing”, he said.

    Alliance Vita, an anti-abortion, anti-gay marriage association, called for parents to refuse to fill in the boxes, which “attempt to erase their identity”.

    Jean-Pierre Winter, a psychoanalyst, told Le Figaro: “We are only at the beginning of a process that will neutralise the difference between the sexes up to the elimination of mentions of man and woman on identity papers”.

    Mr Macron is under fire over his promise to introduce taxpayer-funded IVF for lesbians this year.

    No wonder Ancestry.com is advertising DNA testing at such a rapid rate, the old family tree is a bit passe now. Welcome to the brotherhood of man. Which means, actually, no stolen generations. My my, this could be fun !

    15 years ago I had a falling out with a lesbian couple over IVF.
    I was asked the question whether or not I though they had a ‘right’ to the procedure (presumably state funded)
    my response was along the lines of …ah…not giving a flying fuck either way.

    didn’t go over well at the time

    given all that I’ve learned since then, I have to say, that my opinion hasn’t changed in the slightest

    deplorable me

    Black Ball, I read here you are Aboriginal. As a kiwi (pakeha), I grew up learning about the Maori culture. I learned to respect it. I can even speak the language. I came to Australia in the late 1980s and was shocked to see how Aboriginal people were treated. At the time I had never seen an Aboriginal person in real. I wanted to. A friend drove me to the Block in Redfern, where there were Aborigines sitting in a gutter, drunk. He said ” that’s what an Aborigine looks like”. WTF, I said. I asked if he knew about their culture. He said, they have no culture. I have since educated myself, and not through leftist propaganda. There is a deep and profound culture. Pity it is being ruined by white leftard activists.

    As a kiwi (pakeha), I grew up learning about the Maori culture.

    ..
    Kiwis always incorporated more native culture into the mainstream.
    Dunno why.
    Probably because they would kill and eat us if we didn’t.
    Also because some of the Maori stuff is pretty damn cool. Greenstone clubs, face tatts , carvings and eating people.

  21. MatrixTransform

    my business partner’s wife is NZ,
    she’s a complete biatch but like eating people… yr scaring me Arky
    Still, 10 yrs and not even a nibble
    it will be ok

  22. Arky

    it will be ok

    ..
    I don’t think there gave been any incidents since the 1880’s. You’re safe.
    Probably.
    Maori girls are lovely. Mate married one. Top bird. Hasn’t eaten him or anything.

    President H. R. Clinton invokes the president’s emergency powers to ban the carriage, possession or use of firearms and ammunition.
    Will there be or will there not be an armed uprising?
    Discuss.

    Would enforcement of the ban involve the possession or use of firearms?

    The missus and I were walking through a Taiwanese native strip in a resort.
    I asked her: whats with the shop full of wooden dicks we just wandered in and out of.
    What?!!!! She asked.
    Didn’t you notice that the shop we just came out of was stocked entirely with carved wooden dicks? I asked
    She didn’t believe me. Had to take her back to prove it.
    How do you walk into a wooden cock shop and not notice all the wooden cocks, and you being part native Taiwanese how come you know nothing about the apparently rampent wooden cock carving going on?
    Well, she explains, the nationalists supressed native culture and language for a long time, and so did the Japanese before that.
    Which explains the not knowing, but not the ability to ignore an entire wall of giant dongs.

    This live feed of the moon last night, allows you to see ancient alien structures.

    Just joking. 😉

    It is light and shadow playing games with your ….. hang on. What the fuck is that! Center screen at 18:42? Look at the shadow it casts. Wow.



    Nice work from these blokes. I remember my first viewing of the moon from a telescope in the front yard. It was neat. But nothing like this. Up close and personal.

    It is something you’d expect a space agency to do every night with their equipment.

    Then I asked: What did you think they were?
    “Saucepans”.

    Your people, Black Ball, have a rich culture. Why don’t some understand it?

    I thought it was only the leftist activists that encourage the victimhood mentality. It appears that some on the right do too.

    I have appeared before the anti-discrimination tribunal (at work), accused, by an Aboriginal man of discrimination. I won’t go into detail, as I don’t want to out myself. It was a horrendous time.

    I get there is a industry – a lucrative industry.

    I don’t get the fanning of it by both sides though.
