The House of Lords gets described as the best day-care centre for the elderly.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-39038927

Very disappointed by them after Same Sex Marriage was not thrown out. So they must go...


Be careful for what u wish for as these fine upstanding ladies and gentleman have kept this country great and respected around the world and when we do have a vote you vote for self sieving narcissists and vote to get out of Europe . It's no wonder the average person on the street is know around the world as the dumbest shallowest in the western worlds.


A long time ago, when the house of Lords had hereditary peers and noble folk, decisions were made in the best interests of preserving the nation's traditions and customs.

Now that we have equality madness and too much empathy for ethnic minorities, the house of Lords is becoming irrelevant as it seems the British may as well leave the doors wide open and allow any old riff-raff in.


I didn't really care much about the Lords one way or the other before the referendum. Now, as we're told the place is infected with remoaners, i'd defo get rid of them. Especially since they're thieving expenses.

I don't really care for more elected politicians though. So best just replace them with random folk or an algorithm.

I think the problem is employers who require '2.i. in any degree' for generic low-level office jobs -- it means young people are pressured into getting qualifications they don't really want in the subject they are least-worst at. It would probably be better if very applied subjects had their own centres and terminology, too. It would be good to distinguish between academia, art schools, and polytechnics - and the qualifications you gain from them - as I think it's confusing for everyone (but particularly employers) that they are all lumped together in 'I have a degree from a university.'

Hey, I've got a gooseberry fool degree from a gooseberry fool uni, but I got a 2:1. At least I can pretend I did alright if people don't question me too hard, please don't take that away from me.

A doll moulded after a transgendered person is to be released.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/blogs-trending-39030215

Excellent. Now that transgender people are yesterdays news, please can we start making transpecies people like myself feel welcomed by society ? I was born human , but actually view myself as a tyrannosaurus rex. I still get weird looks as I stomp on cars and eat live pigs, which I find to be ignorant of my condition.


Seriously BBC, you need to stop being weird and constantly bombarding us with this transgender nonsense, nobody is interested


This is a brilliant idea.

Children's toys should reflect all of life's differences.

I've made a 70s BBC DJ teddy bear for my kids with headphones, studio and 'management coverup kit' so that when Ted sexually abuses all the other toys the evidence can be deliberately suppressed and destroyed so that he can continue to ruin lives for decades.


What is the current obsession on the BBC with transgender issues, they amount to about ? percentage of the overall population it's probably not recordable but receive a disproportionate amount of press.

Why? another trendy right on Islington cause to bend the malleable into thinking if they don't agree then they're a nazi.

Pathetic


By focusing on all the minority groups, which they have done since the financial crash of 2008 . . They can push normal worries and concerns faced by the majority to the back of the line.

What next ? Should robots be allowed to marry ?

I wonder if all the young idiots will be so bothered by this manipulative twaddle when they are paying for their healthcare in a few decades time.

Morons


One question - WHY???
This is yet another example of political correctness that has gone way beyond it's remit. There is a very simple, biological evolutionary fact - humans have evolved by due process, into two assigned sexes - male and female. There is NOT a third sub-sex, despite the efforts of the liberal brigade.


Another day...another " transgender" feature on thr BBC.....politically correct social engineering funded by a compulsory licence fee.


0.000001 of the population confused as to their gender is not interesting.


"And queue the usual fascist comments....."

I wonder if you realise how intolerant you sound (and its "cue" not "queue" BTW)

Which of us does not have a memory of thinking we really, really wanted something as a child then looking back and thinking "thank goodness my parents didn't let me do THAT"??

Sadly no such wise restraint for today's kids.


When you pull the cord the doll talks;

"You are discriminating against me"

"I need a gender neutral toilet"

"I am going to tell you about my issues"


Anyone else absolutely sick to the back teeth of having to pay what is essentially a tax so that the BBC can ram nonsense like this down our throats ad infinitum?


Its only a pretend thing, like a plastic unicorn. They don't exist either in real life. Trans humans are of course what used to be called daft in the head. Its just that these days any whim can become a 'lifestyle' choice, any feeble mindedness a 'catalyst' for change. Granddaughters birthday in March? Trans doll or plastic unicorn? The unicorn I think.


How sick and sad. Adults playing out their immature and damaged fantasies and also acting irresponsibly often for money. No wonder our poor children are stressed and confused. This is all in the mind and part of society now believing it is all about ME and not greater society and family. Sick people


Its irrelevant what is supposed to be 'normal' these days and what we're supposed to accept. But pushing this sort of nonsense to reinforce an agenda is not normal and shouldn't be tolerated.


We are already supposed to think the gay community are special people, now it's transgender.

They're all PEOPLE. Can't you BBC people get sex out of your heads for 5 minutes?


horrific. Indoctrinating a temporary, political agenda that is objectively false. i dread to imagine a generation of guinea pig children who were talked into being pumped with hormones by parents trying to keep up with the cool fad of transgenderism in the 2010s, being seen as collateral damage for politics. absolutely terrifying what is happening in the name of political correctness.

Walking Dead T-shirt removed from Primark after a customer complained it was racist.
He said: "The slogan is “Eeeny meenie miny moe…..” It stops there, but of course we all know what the original said: “catch a n***** by his toe." "The graphic has a large American baseball bat, wrapped round with barbed wire, and covered with blood. This image relates directly to the practice of assaulting black people in America. "It is directly threatening of a racist assault, and if I were black and were faced by a wearer I would know just where I stood." The slogan comes from the final episode of the sixth series of the critically acclaimed horror drama in which zombies have overrrun a post-apocalyptic world.

The world it is a turning. People are starting to wake-up to the wanton destruction of British society by the corrupt and white-hating political left, and WILL soon take back their nation from the invading hordes. If the politicians don't wake up very quickly to this new reality, there will be rivers of blood on our streets, and civil war in the next few decades. Don't believe me? Just watch and see.



Disgusting vile misogynistic fascist T-SHIRT would never be worn in my area of Sheffield where refugees are welcome !!!!! Primark should be BANNED FROM THE UK NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



Eeny,meeny,miny,moe,put the baby on its Poe,when it's done wipe its bum,eeny,meeny,miny,moe.I remember that version,anyone else

Baffling that people don't seem to realise a) they don't have to buy a thing they don't want and b) they don't have to read an article about something that doesn't interested them

It's almost like they /want/ to complain...

I'll be honest the only reason I now know the “catch a n***** by his toe" version is because Clarkson appeared to mumble it on that tape. Of all the lewd versions created at school, that was never one of them.

Didn't know it was associated with racism until today

But it's a bad T-shirt design so who cares

Made me laugh too. :lol:

As for the t-shirt, it basically sounds like one person complained, claiming it's "fantastically offensive" :lol: :fp: , which is enough to get it removed from sale. Makes you wonder how people make it through the day if that offends them.

I've known that version since I was a kid.

I guess it helps to have a semi racist role model as a child.

There's a story running on a local FB feed about a doctor in my area considering leaving the country to go back home because she no longer feels welcome here after the Brexit vote.

One of the first comments:

Driverless cars.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-39050538

Hope a Women didn't programme it, it will never get into a parking space


Driverless cars = carnage on the roads. Utter CARNAGE!


Hybrid cars .....a big con. Driverless cars............about controlling you, what you do and where you can go. Technology about spying on you and selling you stuff to get you into credit and then control. Wake up people are you really this dumb?. Whist the species keeps breeding you will all end up with no jobs due to technology just what will you all be. fat sad blobs in a VR world- matrix


Why has Ford made a driverless car that looks like a bog standard car?

I'd prefer it if it was a day-Glo yellow cube so I can get out of its way when it inevitably malfunctions.

Like the vegetarian sausage, it just seems a bit odd.


@29 Next door neighbour

" throw the lazy brits on the scrapheap the better"

1) If the laziness of the Brits you work with is causing you problems, surely your ineffective foreign manager can do something about it.

2) Don't confuse the actions of UK people with the political ambitions of trades union.

3) If you don't like Brits, leave.

4) Glad you're not my neighbour, traitor.


What will the Wahhabis make of it.
Women going down the shops -
all their own.


Four drunk/ drugged teenagers jump in the road for a laugh knowing the car will react.

You alone in the driverless car is steered into a sturdy tree.

One single casualty.... success!

Your dead and your family devastated.

The driverless car WILL be manipulated in unexpected ways


Just because something is possibly possible
Doesn't mean that it's necessarily necessary.

I suspect the whole thing is that your car registered to your postcode will be restricted from driving in or to areas where the posh people live. Works for education and top jobs, so why not for travel in our soon to be privatized country. First class postcodes for first class people. 1984 back on track.


Can they cope with snow, ice fog or driving rain?

How do they protect against driver-less car bombing?
