On this day a year ago
From the newspapers
A very sad story. It struck me more because, from age 5 to age 10 (late 1961 to early 1967, when my family moved to Sydney, Australia), I myself was a pupil at that school. The outer look of the school is just the same as it was 60 years ago, except for there now being cars parked outside in the road. I lived about a mile away. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Caversham_Heights.
“Oxfam came under fire last night for issuing a bizarre ‘inclusive’ language guide to staff.
The 92-page report warns against ‘colonial’ phrases such as ‘headquarters’, suggests ‘local’ may be offensive and says ‘people’ could be patriarchal.
Workers were told ‘parent’ is often preferable to ‘mother’ or ‘father’, terms such as ‘feminine hygiene’ should be dropped, and ‘people who become pregnant’ should be used instead of ‘expectant mothers’.
Nigel Mills, Tory MP for Amber Valley, added: ‘It’s as though Oxfam are trying to take the word ‘woman’ out of the dictionary – it’s nonsense.’
And Toby Young of the Free Speech Union said it was ‘hard to take all this woke virtue-signalling seriously’ given Oxfam was censured for the way it handled reports that staff sexually exploited children after the 2010 Haiti earthquake.“
More of this now-almost-ubiquitous nonsense. When are the British people going to get angry enough to do something about it? Or are they only angry at stuff like the possibility that ignorant know-nothing Gary Lineker might be sacked from his £1M-£2M a year BBC sinecure “job”?
Never give money to Oxfam.
Amazing artistry. The scene created is very stimulating for the imagination.
In the (?) Northern English phrase, some people don’t know what day it is.
I expect that some mugs, such as tweeter “Norma Joones”, will send the fraudulent conwoman more money now…
“Jack Monroe” is just an out and out fraud. She has in fact tried this on (but referencing a number of other supposed medical conditions) over the years.
Incredibly, as of today, 481 utter mugs (up 2 on last week) are sending her a total of thousands of pounds each month via Patreon alone. So long as they continue to do that, “Jack Monroe” can ignore the fact that she is now exposed (to all but complete idiots and naifs) as a fraudster and near-fraudster (“grifter”), and also ignore the fact that her pathetic recent book bombed, together with her one-time TV career.
I suppose that she has got away with her frauds so far because they are in a legal grey area (except for the “sue Lee Anderson and Martin Daubney” crowdfunder scam, which may yet have criminal-legal consequences).
Typical Twitter. Look at that Simon Winterburn tweeter, complete with facemask! What an idiot…did he buy it from grifter “NHS doctor” and facemask seller, Julia Grace Patterson? Also, where is his Ukrainian flag?
As said, typical Twitter. Someone who actually has no knowledge of the facts, yet passionately and angrily attacking those who have presented huge amounts of direct evidence against “Jack Monroe”. I suppose that the Simon Winterburn tweeter supports “Jack Monroe” because her chosen Twitter persona (when it suits her) is “anti-Tory”, as with other notable Twitter “grifters”, among them Julia Grace Patterson, “@Supertanskiii” etc.
Just imagine— many people (at least on Twitter) see Mhairi Black as a future leader of Scotland! Clueless. Also, why are so many Scottish female politicians lesbians?
America has a society almost collapsing under the weight of its own problems. Withdraw from the Ukraine situation, and concentrate on those problems.
The House of Commons is a pathetic monkeyhouse, nothing more.
Carl Benjamin (“Sargon of Akkad”) may be right insofar as empires often result in movements of population, but is wrong to think (typically of so many today) that it is a question of “rights”, when it is simply a question of which race or people is the stronger or strongest.
Only about 5% of the present world population need survive, but it has to be the right 5%.
Introduce NWO/ZOG puppet Macron and his weird wife to Madame Guillotine.
Reduction of artificial fertilizers is a good idea, but the method was quite wrong.
