#3186451 European Refugee Crisis

Posted by Phil on 03 September 2015 - 09:14 AM

It's all very well talking about showing compassion and offering refuge in Britain, but the ongoing financial burden would be horrendous. How many of the people we let in will not work ... for reasons of aptitude (lack of English or trained skills), time (young children to look after) or indolence (given free housing, can live in relative comfort on benefits). Every last one of them will never leave to go back home.

 

We don't know and we only have previous experience to make a prediction.

 

The government and local authorities already camouflage employment, social service and education statistics. And we know why. If Muslims were making a more positive contribution than the indigenous population, it would be trumpeted from the rooftops.

 What a despicable view, and how clever of you to get the muslim reference in

Seeing that picture made me cry. Why are we not helping these people?

 

 

Because they're not "us"

Didn't take long did it? The pontificating?

Now go back and take a look at the picture, I would hope you'll feel your cheeks burn a little, just a tad, with shame for those last few posts. You know who you are so I won't name you.

Before people start getting into "politics" and point scoring look at that picture, that's a small child who's parents were so desperate they took an incredible risk. They are fleeing from what is to us in our nice warm houses, unimaginable horror.

Like I said, look at that picture of a dead child and then pontificate

My band played at Dan Fest at Ovenden RLFC yesterday, she came up to us to say thanks and we were instantly blubbing like babies, she was just as lovely and as warm as she looked on the screen, and her kids, what cuties.




#3185292 Labour leadership contest

Posted by Phil on 01 September 2015 - 09:00 AM

 David Cameron has withdrawn the requirement for us to opt out of EU employment laws. Which means our Workers' Rights are still enshrined in law, and will not be tailored to suit the wants of the "Already too rich" at OUR expense.

 

 

In the next breath he implies Corbyn is a waste of space.

Corbyn has already shaped worker relations in this country, by forcing Cameron to take this step. So tell me again, how Corbyn is "Unelectable".

Before he has even been elected leader of the Labour party, he has the Bullingdon Boys running scared. Which is more than the Blue Labourites have ever done. Or will ever do.

As the two home-owning, superannuated Generation X-ers die off, and every year, another 400,000 graduates leave uni with no job to go to, no chance of buying a home or saving for the future, Corbyn will become Increasingly "Electable".

Neo-Capitalism isn't working. Its not working here, in Mainland Europe; in the USA, or in emerging economies such as China. And pretty soon they won't be able to print money fast enough to hide the Truth any more.

#3181713 So little use of the sin bin

Posted by Phil on 24 August 2015 - 10:37 AM

I asked a current super league ref while on my recent match officials course "why do we never see players marched 10m for dissent anymore, is it still in the rule book?"
His reply "yes its still in the rules"
"So why not use it and the sin bin more?"
"What you need to realise is that rugby is more than a sport now, its a business and decisions like that can cost teams games"
That response totally pee'd me off. It is a sport and if players break the rules they should be punished, if the team suffers its not the refs fault.


Totally ridiculous

No, the National Trust is a charity that benefits from public subsidy to maintain and improve the land and possessions of the rich, powerful and privileged. They maintain the family homes of the rich, powerful and privileged whilst they still live there. If you are rich and privileged and you don't fancy paying the maintenance bills sell it to the National Trust so they pay the bills and you still live there. Fancy a bit more money in your aristocratic coffers threaten to sell that grand master work of art to the Americans and the National Trust will buy it. Will they take it away and exhibit it in a public accessible gallery with free admission? No, they'll leave it exactly where it is, on the wall of the aristocratic family home where it has been. They'll probably even restore and conserve it for the rich, powerful and privileged family to enjoy even more.

 

 

Oh dear.  You do come across as bitter.

 

Here is the background to the National Trust: http://www.nationalt...-do/who-we-are/

 

Here is what it protects: http://www.nationalt...hat-we-protect/

 

 

If by "bitter" you mean hitting the nail on the head then yeah WR, and me, are both bitter.

 

Question, have you or will you ever back the poor against the rich?

who cares? Taking benefit money off these shirkers will encourage them to find work, why not get them sweeping the streets? Send them to Calais as security guards, enslave them, yip yip wibble grrrn




#3177026 Our modern caring society

Just on the air ambulance, yes it should be 100% state funded but you know what would happen. Some bead counter in an office would work out that it's "under utilised" between 2:00 and 6:00 am and cut its funding by 17%

Off topic I know but the people who run it are aware of this and want to keep it out of the state system.

Say "Well done" to her. I suspect that she also had strong parental support, too. 

 

 

thanks John I will. We've always tried our best with our kids, I'd like to think we've done ok.

Subsidies for Solar to be cut.
