You can all fuck off.

Nasty cunt Tommy Robinson is in jail.

Nasty Muslim Paedophiles will soon be in jail.

And my Fedora, roll-ups and harmonica are super-cool.

And not even slightly gay.

Even JJ agrees, and that's saying something.

Shit happens. The older you get, the more often shit happens. So you have to try not to give a shit even when you do. Because, if you give too many shits, you've created your own shit creek and there's no way out other than swimming through the shit. Oh, and fuck.

We have an ancient tradition here of trial by jury, not trial by media or mob. It may well be that the defendants in these cases are guilty but, until this is proven, they are innocent. Twats like "Tommy Robinson" screaming "Muslim Paedophiles!" while the case is being tried only serve to incite racial hatred and prejudice. I hope but doubt that he'll serve the entire thirteen months of the sentence he was given for contempt of court.

And a comment from the secret barrister. here.

Worth a read if you've not had enough already..
Read the thing. Frankly, it came across as a superior, pat on the head now run along, sactimonious outpouring of support for a series of behaviors on the part of the powers that be that are questionable, to my biased eye.

I can imagine an upper class brit of the 19th century explaining, with pained patience, how the fuzzies really desire a firm had in their administration. This bit
his racists-in-arms across the pond.
The writer can soundly go fuck himself.

All he is doing is explaining how shitty laws were applied to a lower class white guy.

My position is that whenever a governments' actions are hidden, for whatever purpose whatsoever, citizens should get up on their hind legs and howl. In the current case, if the fear of the jury being tainted was so great, they should have been sequestered. They didn't do that and that is a data point.
...
Agreed.
Would sequestering cost more than a new trial?

Somehow I find that hard to believe considering what one article implied:
...
A court heard his comments on the film had the potential to cause the collapse of a long-running trial at a cost of hundreds of thousands of pounds to the taxpayer.

Is sequestering something that is "just not done" in the UK?

Inquiring minds want to know...

'Certain death' for Tommy Robinson in new prison
Anti-Muslim takeover activist Tommy Robinson was jailed last month for a “breach of the peace” while live-streaming a trial involving a Muslim rape gang outside Leeds Crown Court.

He was sentenced to 13 months in prison for interfering with court proceedings. At first he was transferred to a prison that was considered relatively safe. However, his transfer to Onley means "certain death", say observers.
If true, a "not real bright" move by the "powers that be" IMHO.
...YMMV.

They are putting a person "convicted" of a non-violent offense into a dangerous prison?

The German Feminists’ Dilemma
By Anna Sauerbrey
Ms. Sauerbrey is an editor at the newspaper Der Tagesspiegel.
...

The cases {unequivocal nasty ones previously noted in the article} have added fuel to the far right’s fiery anti-immigrant rhetoric. And it has created a dilemma for Germany’s liberal feminists: How can they fight against violence without supporting anti-immigrant resentments? Or to put it even more bluntly: Is it even possible to defend pluralism and women’s rights at the same time in Germany today?

Violence against women committed by immigrant men first became a topic of debate after hundreds of women were sexually harassed and abused by groups of young men, most of whom were immigrants from North African countries, at Cologne’s main train station on New Year’s Eve in 2015. Since then there has been a steady drumbeat of stories, ranging from harassment in the streets to rape and murder, across Germany.

...
What a bullshit question. There is no reason pluralism cannot coexist with consistently enforced laws against violence. What the hell.
"If fighting is sure to result in victory, then you must fight! Sun Tzu said that, and I'd say he knows a little bit more about fighting than you do, pal, because he invented it, and then he perfected it so that no living man could best him in the ring of honor. Then, he used his fight money to buy two of every animal on earth, and then he herded them onto a boat, and then he beat the crap out of every single one. And from that day forward any time a bunch of animals are together in one place it's called a zoo! (Beat) Unless it's a farm!"

Totally unrelated, but all this reminds me.

Very British, very gay. Maybe I'll post a video tonight. :)

So you are saying that one needs to be adept at blowing to play one of those things?

And that you are ... accomplished in said art?

I am adept at blowing and sucking.

Unlike "Tommy Robinson".

He just sucks.

Much better than the video I would have posted, but what exactly is homophobic about Theresa May? :?

Is it because she's a woman and not a horrid old poove like all those other Tories? :BigGrin3:
