A SLIP-UP:

December 30, 2017

The P.C. brigade has invaded the British forces; Notices have gone up at a military academy advising the use of gender-neutral words to comply with “modern sentiments”. “They include saying “human resources” instead of “manpower” and “humanity” as opposed to “mankind”.” Shouldn’t it be; “hu resources” and “huity” respectively? I’d imagine that women who’ve been abused or feel undervalued or disrespected would be more offended by the way they are TREATED rather than the traditional language which is used. As for the word “chaps”, any civilised organisation would address a mix-gender group with “ladies and gentlemen” as they always have.

But I’ve also made a slip-up. It should of course be “gentleladies and gentlemen!”

HYLAS:

In ancient Greek legend, son of Theiodamas (king of the Dryopians in Thessaly), favourite and companion of Heracles on the Argonautic expedition. Having gone ashore at Cios in Mysia to fetch water, he was dragged down by the nymphs of the spring in which he dipped his pitcher. Heracles sought him in vain; afterward, in memory of Heracles’ threat to ravage the land if Hylas was not found, the inhabitants of Cios each year on a stated day roamed the mountains, shouting aloud for Hylas. The story was a favourite of Hellenistic Greek poets, such as Apollonius of Rhodes, Theocritus, and Nicander, and was also told by the Latin elegist Propertius.

“Space constraints are one reason, but curatorial choices also play a role. “Would we call these choices “censorship”?”

They could be; It may be better to store all the artworks in a computer where the works for a display could be randomly selected by the computer. This would also give “not worthy” pieces a chance to see the light of day. Oh, and the reason why the photo was taken down and the painting not was probably because the photo was of a real child and the painting just a fantasy. [Pyethon]

I would also suggest that state sex education before puberty especially alternative sexual concepts could also be harmful to boys. The natural psychological and emotional development of a child should not be interfered with.

“There were also numerous references during the debate to the needs of ‘LGBT kids,’ ‘LGBT pupils’ and the like – with no recognition that projecting adult labels and sexual identities like gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender onto immature children is a category error and wholly inappropriate.”

PRESIDENT TRUMP:

December 26, 2017

THE STATE VISIT

Whatever ones’ opinion of Donald Trump is, as democratically elected president of the United States he should be afforded the same reception as previous presidents. To deny him this on the grounds of possible social unrest is submitting to bullying. Just because we invite him to meet the Queen with all the pomp and ceremony doesn’t mean that we endorse his views.

Newspapers have been blamed for the vitriolic reaction from social media towards those M.P.s who defeated the government over Brexit.
Newspapers have been around long before the Internet was even conceived and their existence has played a major role in British democracy. It’s not up to journalism to change its tune but for social media to put its house in order.

PLEASE SIR CAN I GO TO THE TOILET?

December 16, 2017

How demeaning to see Britain grovelling to the E.U. mandarins to come to a trade deal. Apparently our homework is now good enough and we can now go out to play. I know that the “divorce” is complicated and people’s wealth and livelihoods are at stake but is it worth losing our dignity. No one really knows if we would be better or worse off without a deal. In the short term I suspect that there would be job losses and standards of living would fall but we would have recovered from that and retained our self respect.

THE TRANSITION PERIOD:

The E.U. proposes to sanction the U.K. if it breaks the rules of the transition agreement. This period is intended to smooth the transition from our current trading arrangements with the E.U. and those which we want to sign with other countries. However if these new conditions prevent the U.K. from preparing for this there doesn’t seem to be much point in it; we might as well reconsider the trade deal and leave next year. A lot of countries in the E.U. have now become disenchanted with the whole project and do not want to lose any more sovereignty and some are courting a similar exit. It may be better for the E.U. to re-think the whole idea and consider something similar to the original “common market” model (Treaty of Rome 1957).

BREXIT: BEST PLAN.

Why don’t we stop grovelling to the E.U. and just walk away? If we don’t like what happens a few years down the line we can always rejoin under article 49. They would most likely welcome us back with open arms. And maybe by that time they would have mended their ways and made it more democratic.

“These are the people who over the past 40 years have green-lighted the outsourcing of huge swathes of parliament’s authority to Brussels, and whose very efforts to destroy Brexit run counter to parliament’s own handing of that decision to us, the people, and its insistence that it would respect the decision that we made.”

“They are all furious and disgusted, though the reason for their anger is pretty much split down party lines, with Conservatives MPs appalled at the opposition MPs who tried to stop John Bercow from leaving his seat in parliament, whereas Labour and other opposition MPs are angry at the proroguing of parliament.
