#3046470 Pakistan Taliban slaughter over 135

Posted by Griff9of13 on 17 December 2014 - 07:13 PM

Atheism is the belief that God does not exist and the atheist belief system is built upon that premise.  Some believe God or gods exist; others do not.  It is all belief.  It is all faith.


No. I KNOW for a fact that there is no evidence to prove the existence of a god. Therefore, until such evidence is provided I can not believe in a god.


Also, atheism has no structure, no mechanism to wield power, no leadership and hierarchy. 


I do understand how religious belief came about, it was primitive mans way to explain the, then, unexplainable. Science has now disproved, and continues to, disprove many of these beliefs.

Soviet Communist Party 1922 to 1991.


Wrong. They did not commit their numerous atrocities in the name of atheism, but in the name of political ideology.

13. Car for mainly weekend use - sort of; we have one car, Mrs griff9of13 uses it Monday to Friday to commute to work so I only get to drive it at weekends.
22. Shops at Waitrose - yes, but not exclusivity. 

49. First name terms with the pub landlord - I'm on first name terms with several. <_<

Visiting a food bank is exactly the sort of thing he has been banging on about for the last year.  The whole 'don't vote' shtick is about the 3 main parties being all the same, so why vote if nothing changes.  He thinks the people should get up and do things for themselves, hence his support of food banks, the Focus E15 group, etc.  His whole thing is that the politicians wont look out for you, and you need to organise yourself locally. 


Selfish?  He isn't a saint but selfish? 


Yeah go back to Hollywood Brand, we have had enough of you supporting those families being evicted.  Such a selfish act, supporting some down trodden types.  Supporting fireman in their campaign against pension changes?  What a selfish act....


Burn him!


Nah, he doesn't believe in those things; he's just a selfish narcissist who does these things for self promotion. <_<


Anyway, what does it really matter, if Brand energises some of his younger fans (a demographic that we all know don't engage in politics in large enough numbers) to get interested in politics that has to be a good thing doesn't it?

Nigel Farage Slapped Down As OBR Says Britain Has 'Masses Of Room' For Migrants


"Of course, there’s masses of room," he told the Treasury Select Committee. "The urbanised part of Britain occupies less than 10% of the surface area. The urbanised part of Surrey occupies less of Surrey than golf courses." :O

#3042354 All in it Together?

Posted by Griff9of13 on 08 December 2014 - 09:39 AM

"Oh, just for clarity, my opening post was party politically neutral"


you mean in the sense that Guardian TV  is party political neutral?


:no:  :no:  :no:  :no:  :no:  :biggrin:


Don't judge others by your own low standards. Some of us can look at the world without wearing party political blinkers.

I see your suffering another bout of "whataboutism" again John. Though your first link does have a little relevance, the second is completely irrelevant as he hasn't, thankfully, been an MP since 2010!

It's like the old joke; "how can you tell a man is from Yorkshire? You don't have to, he will tell you." :P

#3041406 Lancashire Day?

Posted by Griff9of13 on 05 December 2014 - 01:11 PM

A few more years of selective breeding in Lancashire and they'll reach their ultimate target .. a bloke who looks like Ken Dodd and speaks like George Formby

There's no point; Yorkshire's womenfolk have beaten us to it. :D

It seems to me that just about all the Lancastrians listed are famous people who happen to be from Lancashire rather than being famous for being Lancashire.

I'm supposed to read about a Tory in a lefty newspaper?  That's going to be really fascinating.  Not.

Then I suggest you widen your reading, you may be surprised what you can discover. ;)


Anyway, if the chancellor is so economically illiterate how come the UK economy has been growing for the last 2 years and how come it is growing in spite of the stagnation in the eurozone where apparently most of our trading partners exist?


It was growing when he came in though, and faster. He put the brakes on for political gain.


Anyway, some more analysis: 2019: A vanity project


Edited to add: 


It is hardly surprising you can present the figures as growing when you included guesses: Drugs and prostitution to be included in UK national accounts <_<

#3038630 Black Friday...Seriously, is it worth it?

Posted by Griff9of13 on 28 November 2014 - 04:01 PM

All I know is that I've had about 20 emails drop into my inbox today with black Friday in the title. They've all been deleted without opening.
