Smack on the wrist for doing something bad = acceptable
Putting your weight behind a smack or any form of closed-fist or genuinely painful action = not acceptable

Having said that, I really *really* try to avoid even the smack on the wrist. It's horrible.

People should not have opinions nor responsibility, they must do as they're told, in all aspects of their life. They must be good citizens, as defined by the Liberal/Left.

There is no room for independent thought. You will be shouted down and labelled with a newly invented Liberal/Left naughty word if you do.



I like how this is complaining about being told to act in a deliberate manner whilst also stating that people should follow their ideals of hitting children.

Most kids are little gooseberry fools though, but I doubt hitting them would work, perhaps hitting the parents and telling them to do something?

I liked how he went from complaining that "there is no room for independent thought" to moaning that people liberal/left invent new words.

Do you want independent thought or not? :slol:

I made a topic about this a few months ago.

It was a very interesting read, in relation to how people are bringing up their kids these days. Certainly made me have a think about how I felt about the use of smacking.

Bayeux Tapestry to be displayed in UK for the first time.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-42713552

Very gracious of them.
Should not result in some kind of watered down immigration arrangement though


One in the eye for remoaners...

This shows we can have Brexit and normal positive relations with our neighbours.


And you thought Brexit would end our relationship with Europe!


Welcome home Bayeux Tapestry!

And even better, one in the eye for the French :)


Just shows the multicultural make up of Britain really doesn't it.

I still say 'OUT'


Are they knocking it off the Brexit divorce bill, along with all those expensive bottles of wine and artworks they owe us?
We should weave a new ending onto it with us sticking two fingers up across the channel.


no point displaying it in london no british people will see it


Loan it?

In the past, when Britain was Great Britain, if we wanted something we just took it.

We were feared and respected throughout the world.

Once, we had an Empire.


"hould we give them something in return?"

Yes, a reminder of who liberated them in WW 2


He's obviously after something at the British taxpayer's expense.

It couldn't possibly have something to do with the French immigrant problem at Calais, could it?


How ironic the French are to lend us a work of art that depicts their victory over us and the end of the previous rulers who themselves had wiped out the British before them, just after we leave the EU. Makes you wonder did the EU become so difficult with us in the hope we might leave and they could get on with the project we had been holding up ever since we joined.


I wouldn't even let Trump lover Macron in the country, disgusting homophobic racist as shown as he let Trump in France.


Great, thanks France

But no, it doesnt mean we are going to let anymore 'undocumented child ( cough) refugees ' in via Calais.

That was a anti-Trump/anti-Macron one and had nothing to do with Brexit.

Didn't watch the show, and don't utterly disagree or hate some of the places these comments have come from... but...

I basically agree with what they're saying there. But under what circumstances did the SAS vet become homeless?

This isn’t a thread to discuss the stories, but this is why:

A penniless SAS veteran who helped free hostages during the 1980 Iranian embassy siege is living in a B&B because his local council has failed to find him a place to live, he has claimed.

Bob Curry, 64, said he faced being homeless after splitting with his partner and losing his business, and in 2015 he sold his medals for £20,000 to help pay off debts.

Mr Curry, who was one of the first commandos to enter the embassy to free 19 hostages, told The Sun he asked Herefordshire County Council for help and filled in forms for a council house in November, but is still waiting.

Since then he’s been staying on his daughter’s sofa and charities are now helping to fund his temporary accommodation.

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2018/01 ... n-embassy/


Basically his business failed and he didn’t fill out the housing forms.
