Well I don't wanna get into a fight with a couple police officers & a pair of twats in hazmat's over a pet tbh. 

 

I would.

 

A ‘pet’?  A sentient being who has been a part of your life; and if you’re a decent being yourself, you have given them love and vice verse.

 

 I don’t know where humans get off thinking they are the be all and end all of this world.

 

Not having a go at you.

Well they're part of my family but they're still pets, "I don’t know where humans get off thinking they are the be all and end all of this world." Not sure what you mean.

 

If they did show up one day and demand you hand your little friends over would prison time really be worth it?

I mean humans think they’re superior, more important than other species.

 

If it ever comes to them showing up for that, I - and my little friends - would be long gone; I have my exit strategy planned.

 

Taking peoples pets is a declaration of war in my book; anything goes in that situation; ie, I’d take them out before I’d hand over.

Personally am getting a little tired of hearing about beergate or cakegate! If this was a genuine crisis I would expect to see more productive discussions in the media, like did the lockdowns actually work? Did the jabs work? Can the jabs cause serious long term damage? Investigating government contracts for potential fraud. Investigating the main participants for conflicts of interest. Discussing how our liberties are effected by threats of vaccine passports, how can we improve our health going forwards? How have our kid's education been effected? How about the effects on mental health? How did government actions effect our economy? did it create the inflation problem we have today? Talking about someone eating some cake and having a beer and a curry is just unwanted noise just shows the low depths of the media and how much of a nonsense the whole "crisis" is.

It truly is all a load of distracting nonsense. 'Partygate' obviously was 'the thing' prior to the local elections, and it was used by Labour to trick people into voting for them (because they just can't champion and campaign on their own policies). Rather unsurprisngly once the ballot papers started being counted, the whole 'Beergate' thing then came out and suddenly Starmer and Labour looked a bit hypocritical. Maybe all those people who voted for Labour councillors just to "send a message to the Tories" might have some regrets now, especially those living in an area run by a Labour council doing an appalling job.

 

But the problem is that many people can't see that our politicians are taking the piss out of them now.

 

People (quite rightly) got a bit upset and angry at the antics of Boris and his colleagues - "I was locked in my home and couldn't go see Granny while they were partying" etc etc.

 

The question being asked by people is "why weren't they following the rules?" Well, thats the question being asked by people who obediently and slavishly followed every rule, guideline and restriction placed upon them.

 

The question of course should be "how come the people who issue these rules and guidelines for us feel they don't need to follow them themselves? Is it all a load of bollocks?"

 

The sooner people can snap out of this hypnosis that has been cast on them the better.

Maybe on a subconscious level some people on the street feel more comfortable fussing over these jokers breaking their own rules than  examining the potent question of why they themselves complied so willingly. It was always obvious that if there was really some lethal disease rife, Bojo etc would have been as far from its path as is humanly possible to get.

The BBC does not normally report the frequent beatings, maiming and murder of journalists covering the brutality of Israeli occupation forces in Palestine, but they had to give this one a brief mention because Al Jazeera reporter, Shireen abu Aqleh was known and respected throughout the Middle East. She was targeted by Israeli snipers during yet another dawn raid in the Jenin refugee camp.

 

“One Zionist bullet aimed at her head.”

The Israeli military denied that its forces targeted journalists. It is looking into "the possibility" that they "were hit by Palestinian gunmen" during an exchange of fire.

 

Eyewitnesses say there were no “Palestinian gunmen.”

 

The Qatar-based news channel said Abu Aqleh, 51, was shot "deliberately" and "in cold blood" by Israeli troops. Another reporter was shot and wounded.

 

Qatar's Assistant Foreign Minister Lolwah al-Khater said Abu Aqleh was shot "in the face" while wearing a press vest and helmet.

Partygate has been the most useful of all stories when it comes to giving people a shake.

 

Q) "Do you appreciate politicians?"

 

A) "No"

 

Q) "Presumably because they lie all the time?"

 

A) "Yes"

 

Q) "I think they are liars as well. They are taught to lie from an early age in their journey to power and are taught that a lie for the greater good is righteous, so that their conscience does not get in the way of policy. Have you noticed that politicians are also cowards?"

 

A) "Yes, they hide behind security wherever they go. I remember snipers on the roofs in Birmingham when the then government had a conference at the NIA"

 

Q) "So why would lying, cowardly politicians risk their very lives over a virus they told us was deadly as they indulged in numerous maskless, secret parties during the height of the widely reported danger to life?"

 

A) "Perhaps they put their trust in the vaccines"

 

Q) "This was in May 2020. The vaccines did not become available until December 2020, seven months later. Boris did not even have his first jab until March 2021"

 

There are many variants to be had in this line of questioning because there are many different answers (particularly if somebody is dodging) though that is a common example of how a conversation might go. The way in might not be through a discussion on anything to do with 'covid' - more likely it will be somebody moaning about the government or politics in general.

 

For a hardcore covidian to remain true to their doctrine, they would have to accept that politicians are both courageous and truthful in words and deeds. I do not want to hear one word spoken against any member of parliament coming form their lips. Partygate is not something that can be written off as a matter of incompetence.

China surrounds Taiwan for massive invasion ‘rehearsal’ drills

 

 

Blimey, a rehearsal for a possible invasion. Thats not inflammatory in any way then. I lived in Tampa briefly several years ago. I was having my cable installed by Shaw (company) and a worker came out who was also stationed at the McDill military base. It was when China was said to be annoyed at Americans flying in their airspace. When this guy saw the newsflash on the TV he said " Oh wow thats not good, the last thing we want is a war with China, they outnumber us a million to one" 

 

I imagine Taiwan wont be feeling threatened in any way 😬
