Jailable offences now include harassing someone who you think may have contributed to killing your spouse.

 

Caroline Flack's former fiance jailed for 'wholly irrational' harassment of GB News journalist | Ents & Arts News | Sky News

 

Now if only they applied that to journalists doing the same thing.

 

Well I can see the logic of this.

imo, no point in harassing. Do the right thing by reporting to the police....even though we know that is useless. It is the correct channel/procedure to move forwards.

He won't do shit. But if he did (or rather those above him did - he's just a front man) then an equally dark entity will replace Facebook and is probably already waiting to go live.

 

This would have been known about for some time.

At a time when statues are being toppled of historic figures who obtained their ill-gotten wealth through the exploitation of others, a statue has been unveiled in Winchester to celebrate a rich money-lender, Licoricia, who married the richest Jew in medieval England, David of Oxford.

 

Her clients included kings, queens and nobles. Edward I introduced the Statute of the Jewry in 1275, which prohibited Jews from usury. One of Licoricia's sons, Benedict, was hanged for coin clipping and her family were banished from England by the 1290 Edict of Expulsion.

 

The statue on Jewry Street is to promote ‘diversity’ and ‘tolerance’ of such nefarious practices, while whitewashing the history of the medieval Jewish community and their royal connections.

 

Prince Charles agreed to unveil the statue of Licoricia of Winchester. In doing so, he marks the historic importance of the medieval Jewish community in Winchester’s royal past, and the continuing importance of strong inter-faith understanding. However, Charles had to cancel, after testing positive for ‘Covid’ again.

 

“We also greatly welcome the presence of Chief Rabbi Ephraim Mirvis and other faith leaders. His blessing of the statue will celebrate the challenging history of Jews in England across a thousand years, and embody the continuing need to educate citizens of today about the relevance of their shared heritage in creating a better society.”

 

What better society? I must have missed that! All I saw during the last 1,000 years was war.

So Cressenda Dick resigned today. Ok.

 

What I don't get is Sadiq Khan and his Labour and media mates blame her for being responsible for the actions of police officers, because she is ultimately in charge.

 

But when Starmer is accused of being responsible for letting Saville go because ultimately he was in charge there is uproar in the streets.....

 

Hmmmm

200 starlings drop dead from the sky on to Pembrokeshire road 'after huge electrical-type bang' - leaving drivers fearing they were in a 'horror film'

By Chris Matthews For Mailonline

Published: 19:39 GMT, 11 February 2022 | Updated: 20:47 GMT, 11 February 2022

Ian Mccaffrey works in Waterston and said some birds fell out of the sky onto his car just after he heard a large 'electrical-type' bang. 

He said: 'When I left work last night I heard a bang and then a load of birds landed on my car.' 

'Every now and again you will hear a bang that is coming from what I think is a crow-scarer that farmers use. 

'However this bang was more like an electrical bang - not quite as loud as lightning but similar.'

No one even bats an eyelid at this sort of revelation anymore and that's not a good thing...where's the outrage?

CIA has a secret surveillance program called 'Deep Dive' that has been collecting Americans' personal information for YEARS without congressional approval, Democratic Senators say

  • Democratic Senators Ron Wyden and Martin Heinrich have called for a probe
  • They wrote top intelligence officials and demanded information
  • Wyden and Heinrich said the program operated 'outside the statutory framework that Congress and the public believe govern this collection'
  • The Senators claim the CIA have long hidden details from the public and Congress

It'll be winter in Australia soon, no doubt once your elections are over, and the tyrants have been elected back into power, there'll be some new 'even more deadly variant' which means the restrictions have to get rolled out again...

It sounds as if the lightening strikes were occuring BEFORE the eruption...

Tonga underwater volcanic eruption triggered nearly 590,000 lightning strikes that were 'unlike anything on record', incredible animation reveals

  • An incredible animation has been created based on data from a global lightning detection network 
  • On January 13, a blast above the surface caused a major lightning event, which lasted through until January 14
  • Then, on January 15 the massive eruption triggered a wave of almost 400,000 strikes in just six hours
  • In total there were almost 590,000 lighting strikes over the three days – significantly more than the next largest event, the eruption of Anak Krakatau in Indonesia in 2018.

On January 13, a blast above the surface caused a major lightning event, which lasted through until January 14.

Then, on January 15 the massive eruption of the Hunga Tonga-Hunga Ha'apai underwater volcano triggered a wave of almost 400,000 strikes in just six hours.

In total there were almost 590,000 lighting strikes over the three days – significantly more than the next largest event, the eruption of Anak Krakatau in Indonesia in 2018.

I was standing in line at the bank yesterday,the only one without a mask,anyway they had an idiot box up on the wall with the ABC news playing,on it was an expert on mental health during the pandemic promoting  the drugs that can be used to help combat problems,I wasn't really listening however at the end of the segment the head on a stick (news reader ) mentioned that this is the ABC's new mental health initiative to which I started laughing as the irony was overwhelming. First you scare the shit out of everyone with fear mongering ,help create the problem  then hold yourself up as a savior.

Of course no one else got the joke ,how could they ? as I said they were all wearing masks

West Midlands hit by earthquake

Quote

An earthquake has shaken homes across the West Midlands.

The British Geological Survey (BGS) said the 2.8 magnitude quake hit Walsall at a depth of 4.35 miles (7km) at 22:59 GMT on Monday.

It said the effects could be felt over a 12-mile (20km) radius from the epicentre, with tremors detected in Birmingham, Wolverhampton and Dudley.

One resident told the BGS it felt "like a wardrobe had fallen over or an explosion blast against the window".

The quake was approximately eight miles (12.8km) east of the 4.7 magnitude one that hit Dudley in 2002 before being felt across most of England.

From: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-birmingham-60476022

 

It couldn't have been that bad as I slept through it. 🤪

 

While this part of England shouldn't really suffer many earthquakes, being far from the edge of any tectonic plates, it can't be any coincidence surely that the UK has been battered by consecutive storms in recent days, caused by several low pressure systems moving across from the Atlantic.
