    Rose’s paean to capitalism and the rule of law (well the ones they support) and all that comes with that…

    There in big bold type at the start is a word of warning OPINION
    Which puts me in mind of that saying 'opinions are like arseholes everybody's got one'
    Ya gotta wonder sometimes.... Are these people just exhibitionist's who get a kick outta bending over and exposing the contents of their mental anus to the world?

    And how many of them, are there out there? ... <shudder>

    100’s of comments about how the name change was a disgrace, PC gone mad, they have 28 years proud history,

    28 years isnt a particularly long time. Sure people can have their say but its up to the club in the end, and maybe they are capable of exhibiting more sensitivity towards the larger issues than some of their obvious kneejerk supporters. And PC gone mad is getting to be a catch-all phrase, empty words signifying nothing more that the idle irritation of the speaker. To them I say 'Grow a pair you couch potatoes!'

    In its best interpretation jihad is the internal/introspective struggle in the individual against ones baser? instincts.Crusade will always have negative associations for some adherents of Islam because of history. A crusade for peace just sounds like an oxymoron to me, dont know about anyone else.

    And Stuff has another go and get it wrong.

    "The Crusades were a series of conflicts that included wars between Christians and Muslims in the Mediterranean that started about a thousand years ago. The Crusades were estimated to have resulted in between one and two million deaths"

    FFS will some one there do some fucking research.
    "in the Mediterranean"? Honestly? ever heard of Jerusalem? Conflicts? try invasion by christian zealots. And as no one there has a clue the first invasion was as much anti semitic as it was anti islam, 'cause for a few centuries the lie that Jews were somehow complicit in the death of the "son of god" had been spoon fed to an illiterate population. Another thing to thank the RC church for.

    The Crusaders

    Stuff had this once over lightly explanation of the Crusades, It would make Trump proud it was so white washed.
    "The Crusades were a series of religious wars between Christians and Muslims started primarily to secure control of holy sites considered sacred by both groups. In all, eight major Crusade expeditions occurred between 1096 and 1291."

    The Crusades all originated out of Europe led by christians The first one originated out of Germany.
    Islam had taken the "holy land" from Roman control in 637 allowing Jews to worship there something prohibited since Rome took control circa 80.
    Centuries after the fact christians whipped themselves into a frenzy and set off to drive out the "infidel". Any so called christian sacred sites were well and truly gone or built over. There was no need for any of what ensued, 200 yrs of on/off wars. Instead of trying to give a potted history fucking Stuff could just tell readers to go to a library and educate themselves.

    Does he have tour dates and it better be free admission, cause I'd like to go along and throw rotten eggs at him.
    I wasnt going to pay $150+ for the same pleasure at that Canadian cretin JP's nonsense I dreamt up tour.

  • Legal Beagle: The climate strike and the…, in reply to Walter Nicholls,

    vote the same when that is the right thing to do, and differently when that is the right thing to do,

    Im not sure you can extend the current situation out in that way.
    Maybe its a one of.
    So many adults have a compromised view when it comes to climate and the future. Compromised by self interest usually, and a younger generation dont have that baggage. Going against the views of parents if their view is wrong on this is the right thing to do. And forcing a change thru some kind of vote and extending that vote outside current legal restrictions may be a way out of this looming mess.
    I’d like to see a way to unite in the face of it, after that well who knows!
