"FDNY commissioner Daniel Nigro admitted at a city council hearing in December that the department had lowered the fitness bar to allow more women to pass the test." Hate to be...obtuse....but just how does one pronounce that name?

Cap'n, "You didn't come across a copy of "Rubber Bondage Babes 1993", did you Jonesy?" I did but the VHS tape was (un?)expectedly worn beyond use one is sad to report. I was only looking for presumably the same friend..........

I assume that comrade Kerry will be at least as militant towards even the idea of halal derived meat? I'm just curious.

"Imagine what such ‘thinkers’ might do if granted real power." The problem is that the filters are nowhere near fine enough to exclude them all...... Then we have a Clinton etc..

"Like many Labour people, free to dream I’d go further than Corbyn: I’d go for a windfall wealth tax to pay off the deficit, make the Queen be Elizabeth the Last, abolish faith schools, private schools and inheritance, tax millionaires at 70%: add your wishlist here." What about second properties or investments in foreign assets?

"The third said the baby acquires a right to life when it leaves the hospital." I truly do not know how to begin to respond to this. Outrage doesn't adequately convey my feelings. These people make laws over us???

Hal, I am just so so PAN-offended... In fact my head just exploded into little bits so I'm off to the pharmacy for an aspirin for the headache.

Hal, Forgive, but isn't the use of a banana somewhat phallocentric? I'm offended as a feminist guy with feelings.

"I’m no expert but I think that’s a shark." Yes, the faint off-white speckling on the surface of the creature is suggestive.

"I’ve hidden free puppies in the greatest hits." If I know your type they were sired in an evil puppy-factory farm... C'mon David, admit you've been sussed...... If they weren't I offer a pre-emptive and unreserved apology and promise to remove my own spawn from his private school and have him immediately inducted into the nearest inner city comp... Can't say fairer than that now can I? After all, why shouldn't he suffer for offence taken elsewhere? Ooh, I'm sure I've inadvertently made a social observation there....Hmm. P.S. I'm just asking but can I have a state tax-credit or similar for not costing the state to educate my own in my own way?.... Guess not. Ah well.

:George Monbiot is one of the Guardian’s chief complainers about Tory austerity — the same George Monbiot who in 2006 proudly described environmentalism as a “campaign not for abundance but for austerity” and who inspired the radical group Riot 4 Austerity." David, this is a DIFFERENT kind of austerity. OK? Just accept what has to be. HIS flying around the globe is NOT child abuse...... Just ours....

ac1, Thank you for that. Yes, I do see your point I really do but I have retained a sense of what is called collective responsibility and believe there is such a thing as "society" and so accept a degree of culpability for the outcome of the "rest". Possibly a quaint and old fashioned notion but there we go. I have a distaste for the notion of completely pulling up the ladder behind me and then go and live in a gated community in a secure, clean bubble. I don't know of any such model that looks my eyes anyway.....Elysium come to mind....Just a film, I know. I think a point I was trying to make was that it is a truism that not everyone can possibly all have the goodies and I have, in truth, chosen to raise my child the way I do without actually being denied the chance for my son to have an education...However, unattractive the option.... I find myself wondering though just how good the state system would become if private schooling was abolished and the elites were forced to utilise the same set-up as the proles?! Oh I dunno...I'm sure there are many angles to this one.
My son has always gone to an excellent private school who are clearly developing the young fruit of my vigorous loins into a very well-rounded human being indeed. The costs to me are not inconsiderable. I also pay a six figure sum in income tax (true) and I suspect a portion of that also goes to pay for the state oiks. Now before anyone get aerated about my last comment I actually have no problem whatsoever with this as I have friends and many members of my family who cannot afford what I am fortunate enough to be able to afford. He also has far more of what are considered "material goods" than were even beyond my own vast imagination when I was his age. He is also I am sure very secure within his familial environment and has the keenest sense that he is supported (to the death if necessary) in all his endeavours. I sense this is only strengthening his ego structures and will serve him very well in his fully integrated and peacefully productive adulthood. His modeling behaviours also suggest that he will be a completely law-abiding citizen and will probably be a likeable human being. What am I doing wrong David? I am wracked with guilt. Should I start beating him?
What are the statistical odds of such a perfect pair-bonding occurring by chance?

I do find it rather interesting how these milli-tants (I hope that isn't offensive) will pointedly NOT look at the issue of women's rights in, say, the islamic world... All the fault of white men I guess....
