"ghosts of Christmas-yet-to-come" "Does anyone in a position of power believe this is going to get better and these security measures will ever be taken down? If not, perhaps they should explain to us why, how they led us down this route, and what they intend to do about it." https://blogs.spectator.co.uk/2017/12/christmas-markets-without-armed-police-are-now-a-thing-of-the-past/ I can only assume they think they'll get away with it.

With respect to turned tables I really don't think they'll be able to contain themselves until they really can turn over said tables and so reveal themselves for what they are. They'll then get a war they won't believe. After which those responsible will have to be dealt with. Justly of course. Angry......

"Lawyer for Faiz Siddiqui, who alleges ‘inadequate’ teaching stunted his career, says low 2:1 was ‘huge disappointment’" Graduate in a million quid claim. https://www.theguardian.com/education/2017/nov/21/graduate-in-1m-claim-was-badly-let-down-by-oxford-court-told Couldn't someone just tell him to study a bit harder?

Ape, "After reading the comments I've decided I'm not intellectual enough to post here." Please do so however, the host will guide accordingly. Trust me. You might even get a bowl of nuts.

"Waiting for some spoilsport" Indeed. Does YouTube count?

"Bisexual student criticized radical Islam. Guess what happened next …" http://www.thecollegefix.com/post/38392/ I wonder if he'll undergo a paradigm shift though?. Assuming he's a "progressive" that is.

Daniel, " I think the Lawsuit That Never Ends has affected him more than he's letting on." As Steyn himself says "the process is the punishment". The system is engineered this way. In my view one of two things will happen: The populace will just buckle and become servile or something will explode. The jury is still out.

"Your son is Quebec?" Does self-entitlement count?

WTP, No, the definition of UDI is "Unidentified Drinking Injury". It's the nightclub steps wot did it.

"Same argument would work for your son!" Yup, that would be my stance too but I'm not sure I'd win it...... The sooner I can send him down the mines to earn his stale-bread money the better. Or up chimneys, matters not.

Tom, "Given the occasional subjects brought to light here". Whatever must you think of us? As an aside, do you like your dogs fried or boiled? What?

Nik, What you said. Also, I believe that the Pres of Catalan has just declared a UDI. What interesting times we might shortly be living in. Juncker had better sober up sharpish.

MC, "I do not believe any nation has the right to deny independence to any part of itself, if a majority of the citizens demand it." I'll say at the outset that I really do not know what to think about the Catalan issue, in time I'll have a formulated opinion. My question with respect to your point though is at just what sub-division does one draw the line? The county level? Town? My teenage son would just love to secede from the union called the "Jones" family (as long as he can still have all the goodies of course). I hope you can see my point.

"police arrested the woman, identified as 21-year-old Edith Macias, on suspicion of DUI and hit-and-run" So when the good lady says "fuck your laws" I guess she means it? One can hardly accuse her of being inconsistent then.

" So white America is very white and black America isn't very black." Was your mouth out with caustic soda this instant...... David also has a booth you'll need to step into afterwards.

"It would be interesting to see DNA testing done for various racialists running around. Amusing if they found out they had "dirty" DNA in them." It would simply magnify the self-loathing.

So, if it's in the "blood/DNA and inherent" then how is one supposed to "negotiate" with an enemy who ONLY thinks this and ONLY wants you to die? I don't think Sun Tzu would advocate that as a sound approach or mindset to place in an adversary. I haven't read all his dicta mind. https://www.goodreads.com/work/quotes/3200649-s-nzi-b-ngf

dan, "117,000 tweets in 6 years means over seventy tweets a day, 7 days a week. That's industrious." I'm sure he shares equitably the products of his labour.

sneeze, "I would like to hear John Humphrys delivery the 1-minute pidgin news review, or Jim Davidson." John Humphrys doing it would be praised as paying homage to the noble savage. Jim Davidson would be character assassinated as a Nazi, bigot racist. Have you noticed as well how (former Laureate?) Aung San Suu Kyi is being transformed into a deemed bigot now she is in conflict with the highest ranked victim group?

Oh go on then.....I was tempted to poke around adjunct's twitter and noticed this vid of Robert Lee' statue being removed. https://twitter.com/NBCNews/status/908476613808893952 Ahistorical indeed. Great fisticuffs on all the threads too.

"Also, adjunct professor" I notice the esteemed adjunct complains about living in "this ahistorical world" (0.53s). I guess he's opposed to removing statues and other artefacts then?
