Can anyone see the irony in this story?

 

"Africans in France not allowed to travel to UK due to 'visa processing delays'"

 

The Gambia athletes risk missing Commonwealth Games over visas

Quote

Top athletes from The Gambia risk being unable to compete at the Commonwealth Games because a visa hold-up means they are stuck in France.

The six athletes, including one of its most successful sprinters, Gina Bass, have been training in Paris for a year.

Some of the athletes are due to compete as soon as Tuesday and risk missing the competition as they are not yet allowed to enter the UK.

The Home Office said the applications are being processed.

"Let them all in!"

 

 

Probably would have been better off just getting a dinghy across, may have been treated better by the UK authorities.

Holmfield Hum: Mystery droning's origins may never be found

 

The source of a mystery low-level hum which has plagued some residents of a West Yorkshire village may never be identified...

 

I have total sympathy, I've had the hum for years. But it's a global phenomenon and perhaps Holmfield are the latest addition to the list.

ANY 'refugees' not just the over 100,000 ukrainians that have arrived so far

 

when we consider that the soros funded NGO's that handle the migrants coach them to say that they are 'refugees' even when they aren't that will mean that any illegal immigrant including the 17,000 migrants that the RNLI and border force have ferried over from the french coast, so far this year, will also be eligible

Maybe our own homeless citizens should try putting on a foreign accent and claiming to be refugees. In a way they already are refugees, from a system which rejects them and demeans them, so perhaps it would be a better outcome for them.

I know Ants are clever......But this 😂

 

ANTS crawl inside Brazilian woman's Kindle...and start BUYING books!

Journalist Mariana Lopes Vieira shared a video (pictured) of the ants crawling all over the Kindle, which appeared to be concentrated around the tablet's charging port. In the footage, hundreds of the bugs can be seen scurrying over the front and back of the infested Kindle and in and out of the hole at its base. Writing a blog post about the incident, she said the ants had entered the charger hole and made a nest inside the device - rendering it unusable. She said she was even more shocked when she started getting email notifications saying two books had been purchased on her account. The purchases had been made by the ants, she said, which had gotten into the circuits of the Kindle and were causing it to send commands as if in use by a person.

it won't work as those people are not protected under the United Nations migration compact which theresa may signed the UK into without any coverage by the corporate media. The purpose of the compact is to make it legal for people from anywhere to go anywhere and be recognised as legal migration:

Thanks Mac it's news to me. But most illegal migrants are undocumented so there's no evidence of who they actually are, apart from whatever story they give the authorities. Yet that's good enough for our UN supplied legal system.  So in effect we are giving priority to unverified people who claim to be foreigners, over our own people who will have some identity in the system.

Footballers will no longer take the knee on a regular basis. They will save the gesture for games like the cup final. Wankers.

What interests me is the precedents which are created by these events. In effect we have allowed a time slot at the start of sports matches where political expressions and demonstrations can be freely made. To be consistent and free from hypocrisy, they cannot now complain when footballers and other sports people use this opportunity to give free expression to whichever cause they want to support. Will they be courageous and free-spirited enough to give vent to their feelings in future? Or is this whole thing an example of conformity to social pressures due to the loss of personal empowerment and self-confidence which have been eroded during the last few generations? 

 

There's an opportunity here: let's take it footballers!

yes although in the US they are giving illegal migrants ID cards and social security numbers so that they can vote

 

This was always the plan of the democrats: to flood illegal immigrants into the US and then to make them citizens and give them the vote so that the changed demographics would lead to the democrats always winning in elections so that they could then drive the marxist stake into the heart of the republic

 

Expect MILLIONS of migrants...59 million migrants by 2025:

Timing is everything.

The cowards dropped it now so they will be no blacklash at the world cup in Dec.

Just before the world cup? the woke brigade would go mad for not sticking to their principals.

There's no way they'd attempt to actually kneel at the world cup in Qatar.

It's sad they fear to upset Qatar fans more than English football fans
