    Thanks, Linda.

    I, for one, appreciate your thoughts.

    I have never and will never consider running for public office. First, it’s a very different society from the one you in which you live. In the US, there is a strong public life and a continual electoral system with many offices up for election. The UK remains quite a closed system, with a smaller number of elections, much more emphasis on party and less on independents than the US.

    Secondly, I made very clear a long time ago to people that I want nothing to do with party politics.

    Thirdly, I’m too deaf to get involved. I have been for a couple of decades now. There’s been no deterioration in the bones inside the ear which pick up sound, so it’s nothing to do with ageing, I’m told. It’s non-organic, but the result is that I find it very difficult to pick up what people are saying on an everyday basis. That means that taking part in political or any other debate is ruled out.

    That means that I’m restricted to places like JC. There is a group of brexiteer fanatics here who are set on stopping me discussing things like the EU, no matter how unscrupulously they do so. Maybe they’ll succeed, or maybe not.

    Lol, that would have been a good post till you ruined it with your sly digs at the finale. More ludicrous claims. Nobody is trying to stop you speaking your political mind lol, because some people don’t agree with your political opinions doesn’t mean you can’t voice them and you do voice them very often on threads which have legs and continue on through the political changes in real time. I’m sorry more readers don’t support your political ideas, some do, just not many. That’s no ones fault, no one is stopping anyone from liking or agreeing with you lol. Stop playing a victim you are far from it, you’re someone who copy and pastes posts leaving off the posters names therefore making it look like they have said things they haven’t and confusing the reader, then tell the reader how they should read said posts, clever and sneaky and far from a poor victim who is also deaf. I  have it on good authority from someone who has no axe to grind with anyone, you popped in room the other night on a mission to  kiss a bit of bottom and remind everyone how understanding and reasonable you are, apparently it was all a bit cringe, their words not mine. I realise this is just here say but it did make me chuckle.

    Linda I think your idea was well intentioned, however it would never be appropriate. Our members of parliament are voted in. They are there to represent the majority of their constituents and carry out their constituents wishes, be their voice in government. They are not there to ignore their constituents wishes because they think they know better or to make their constituents look stupid, call them mindless and infantile and basically brow beat or cry, stamp their feet and cry if they don’t get their own way. That’s the idea anyway lol, so you see, some people just would not be suited, far from it lol :yahoo:

    Jeez, I’m having my odd visit to jc chatrooms monitored now!

    haha.

    I fully stand by that finale, and I’m planning to write on it soon.

    I know who would have told you that. I went in there for a private chat with someone on f2 which involved banter, and so i pulled into f3 to relax by chatting to people I used to know, even if slightly. I go in there so rarely, and it’s nice to reminisce. If that character thought it was cringe, then they’re looking for cringe. If you’re looking to slag off anybody anywhere, you’ll find it *guaranteed..

    Im going along with thin here the barbaric ritual religious ceremony of slaughtering animals in this day and age simply isn’t right.

    Slitting throats and hung upside down then they are blessed to add insult to injury.

    Also only muslims can work in hallal slaughterhouses.

    Milky, I’m not sure that thin was saying that.

    If he had said that, I wouldn’t have made any comment, because I would have agreed with him – and  you.

    He seemed to be saying that the  EU were pretty slack about halal slaughter.- or was I misunderstanding him???

    I was explaining that EU rules on halal slaughterhouses are strict, and was wondering if he – or you – could explain how they differed from UK rules. If you were going to ban even the licensed slaughterhouses, then I think questions of religious freedom are raised.

    A genuine question, as I’ve read next to nothing about halal – do Jews have halal slaughterhouses as well as Muslims?

    #1111165

    Ge

    80% of halal animal slaughter in the UK involves stunning the animal first, no different to traditional methods and just as “humane”, the animal ‘alledgedly’ feels no pain. The Jewish method of shechita forbids any stunning at all. No animal should be killed without “stunning” it first. The broader picture of animal welfare in general shows that industrial slaughter of animals for human consumption is that people don’t give a toss where their meat comes from when it comes neatly packaged from Tesco, if they did give a toss, they wouldn’t eat it.

    :good:

    Actually you have no idea who told me that, not a scooby, it wasn’t anyone you actually chatted with, just an observer, so Mr Assumption, you have assumed wrongly again. Monitored haha gosh you do think you’re important don’t you lol. I think the expression was “ it was like watching reese mogg on a charm offensive, but even more cringey, and probably stood out like a sore thumb because as you said you rarely go in, just a coincidence that you got pulled on the boards making disgusting accusations about xenophobes and racists. Don’t fret you weren’t the topic of convo, just a throw away comment which made me smile. Slag off ? Are you upset, but basic that language for you isn’t it, Mr Perfect, don’t pretend you don’t “slag people off” lol we both know that’s not true !! Lol.

    You can stand by your finale all you like, it doesn’t detract from the fact that no one is trying to stop you voicing your opinions on anything. How are they ? Because they disagree with those opinions ? Lol ridiculous I’m sure we are all thrilled to hear you already have another essay planned about it… just can’t wait  :good:   :whistle:

    hadn’t you better crack on telling us all what will happen now with Brexit  instead of whining and playing the victim ?  :good:

    As I say in this day and age any animal slaughtered in a religious ceremony is backwards in my book.

    Love to talk more football duties im eating a burger as we speak.

    Ge

    Enjoy that burger, I bet you 23p it was slaughtered by the halal method.

    I used to live in a street where everybody talked about everybody else, and a couple of people were always sending letters to the Social Security or the cops informing on the minor infringements of their neighbours .

    After moving from the anonymity of London, it was really strange!!

    Fortunately for me, the main victim was a single mum who had a guy call around. She just smiled and put up with all the Gossips. We got really friendly with her – she was a really nice woman – I’m sure the neighbours saw us as being cringe cringe – but every movement everybody made was commented on and, unless you were in the in-crowd, the comments were negative, to put it mildly. Doesn’t matter what you did, someone would read nasty things into it. Whether we were cringe-like and patronising or not,  she was just really pleased by the support.

    I really was glad when we moved from that street. We liked them as little as they liked us *shudder

     

    I’m told that some of the estates in parts of this city are like that. During the referendum campaign, the Labour people were told by a sympathetic residents to keep away, as violence might be expected. Apparently, nobody was allowed to disagree with the Brexit bullies there.

     

    Well, apart from the neighbours, n informative discussion about halal killing. Perhaps a campaign should be organised to insist on stunning?
