Posted in: Britain's chief rabbi warns 'poison' of anti-Semitism has taken root in Labour See in context

Yes indeed they have many supporters who are anti Israel, Anti Zionist and, in many cases, likely borderline anti-Semitic (or at least mouth lots of anti Jewish tropes).  But the way this is being reported you would think that there are pogroms being launched in the name of Labour across the UK.

Posted in: CEO of Australia's Westpac bank resigns over money laundering scandal See in context

Agree folks ion Finance have been given a pass at times, but this article makes it sound like Westpac (and other banks) knowingly helped child exploiters and similar.  Actually what happens is banks make millions of payment a day on behalf o millions of customers and they don't always 100% know what their customers are up to.  so more negligence or slackness or inability to put watertight controls over their business rather than deliberate law breaking.

Will be a hagiography that ignores just how deeply strange he was is my guess.  Hollywood still more focused on making money than recognizing its own deficiencies and the stresses and strains of an image driven celebrity mill.

This whole thing is an utter waste of time and distraction.  DT otestifying would be worth a watch though.

No.   But they caould at least support schemes to replant trees in countries that can afford the land.

Indeed.  This type of gun related incident is indeed comparable with smoking banks and public venues' attempts to accommodate all their prospective customers.  agree with Bungle, this at least feels like it might be non-random and related to some gang issue or other beef.

Posted in: Britain’s politicians would be wrong to undo rail closures See in context

The current (in my view slightly crazy, but anyway) structure of rail in Britain means that if a private operator thinks they can make money running a service, they should be allowed to have a go.  I guess what is being suggested here is that govt. will have some form of subsidy scheme to make it worth their while.

Posted in: Esper says crucial S Korea pay more for U.S. troops See in context

Delusional.  US military in SK not very popular (bit like Okinawa) so there will be no political appetite to pay more.  This is one area where I kind of agree with DT - US should just get out of all these anachronistic arrangements.

Posted in: N Korea calls Biden 'rabid dog' that 'must be beaten to death' See in context

I would say this is clear evidence of collusion between DT and L'il Kim.  DT using his close friendship with L'il to influence the US erection.  surely some covert comms will come to light proving this. 

Or else Hunter B will land a plum role helping build DPRK's mobile phone network (or something other that he is an acknowledged expert in).

Posted in: Ricky Gervais to host record fifth Golden Globes See in context

The hype around these award ceremonies is ridiculous.  The Office was funny but after that not much he has done makes me laugh.  and a lot of his tone is pretty patronizing and seneering and relies on pretty dodgy stereotypes (e.g./ Derek, which was pretty dire).

Posted in: Singer Andrea Bocelli: 'Absurd' to shun opera legend Domingo See in context

Not sure his point is that an artist's work should be considered separately from their morality.  Rather it is that we should maintain the principle of "innocent until proven guilty".  So many examples (e.g. Operation Yewtree) where the presumption of guilt and excess adverse publicity had a really awful impact on accused peoples' lives.

No.  Plenty of other flags are historic symbols of oppression and awful behavior and the like.  Union Jack anyone?

Posted in: Fake schoolgirl prostitution extortion ring busted by Tokyo police See in context

Everyone going on about paedophiles etc, but isn't 16 above the age of consent in Japan?

also anyone who picks up a magazine with classified ads for deri heru and similar will see they are riddled with schoolgirl or other "young" woman offers.

The issue here is the extortion, not the goods on "offer".

Posted in: U.S. demands Syria ceasefire; slaps sanctions on Turkey over incursion See in context

The Kurds' best chance of some degree of autonomy and protection from Turkey lies with Assad.   And he will be happy to give them a degree of autonomy in exchange for their support against his majority Arab and Sunni populace who led the rebellion.

Trump is doing what he said he would.  Likewise in Afghanistan.
