It must be horrible being married to someone who forces you to say stuff like this. He looks like he has aged a decade over the last couple of years. The foolish lad was warned, but he didn't listen.

Quarantine for travellers from overseas was never enforced on any level, so I don't see how they can say they are ending it.
Nobody has been fined for not quaratining. People have been allowed to enter the UK as usual for the last 6 months.

White British families were the most likely out of all ethnic groups to receive state support, with 57% doing so.
As they should be. As I said before, Britain is a white country. It would be strange if any other ethnic group was receiving more welfare benefits.
You also nicely completed avoided what I said:
the per capita figures make for interesting reading.
But even what you have posted now proves a point. 81% of the UK is white British, but only 57% of those receiving state support were white (including non-British whites). That's almost 25% under what you'd expect it to be.

There are many occasions a company has employment or promotion candidates with equal amounts of academic qualifications, skills and experience.
True, but not personality. It is always different from person to person and a vital component to the hiring process.
In the British working class white males represent the largest racial and gender group.
Yes. As it should be. Britain is a white country.
When you research which groups are not working and are on welfare benefits, the per capita figures make for interesting reading.

People should not be denied promotion because of their gender or color of skin, but it happens every day with more promotions for white males. There have been labour court cases in the police force because promotion was denied because of gender or skin color.
This is not happening.
In fact, the opposite is. There are jobs in the UK that white people cannot apply for. The reverse is not true.
All qualified people within a company deserve promotions when they become available. Two people qualified for a promotion, one male, the other female, and the last promotion went to a female, then the male should be considered this time.
No. The best person for the job should get it.
Three people equally qualified for a vacancy. One white male. One white female. One black female. If the company is under represented by gender, then the vacancy should go to one of the women. If the minorities are under represented, then the vacancy should to the black female.
No. The best person for the job should get it. As you said: "People should not be denied promotion because of their gender or color of skin". Not being black shouldn't be a reason for being denied a promotion.
Equal qualifications also doesn't means equal candidates. Experience and personality have to enter the equation.
Hiring based on gender and race should not happen, but it does every day.
It does. White people are denied certain job opportunities. The same can't be said the other way round.
Then there's the old adage that women have time off for babies.
It's not an adage. Woman have to take time off for babies if they want them, which most do.

I think it does. The poster who is very anti-China is telling us a little-known, unimaginative and quite lame nickname is supposedly doing the rounds on ‘the web’ I’d say he’s trying to popularize it here. One poster is already very impressed with it.
Nah. It's just you trying to make it into something it is not.
The fact that the post has 8 likes and zero dislikes does make you come across as childish for trying to say "That roughly translates as ‘I’m trying to popularize it'".

That roughly translates as ‘I’m trying to popularize it’.

Hiring people based on diversity quotas which are focused on equality of outcome is the most unnatural and offensive way for someone to be/not to be hired.
This isn't even pushing for equality of outcome as it wants over-representation.

Just imagine the middle class who can hardly hide their disdain of the working class coming out with: "Haha. Just wait until the Brexiteers find out that 3 million Hong Kongers will soon be in Britain!".
Little do they realise that the middle class is going to replaced by a harder working, more intelligent and productive workforce.

I keep seing posts which say "When Trump loses in November" or "When Biden wins by a landslide".
I think it isn't a good idea to set yourself up for repeat of 2016. People have moved further into their own bubbles since then, and they don't hear/talk/know or understand what goes on outside of it as much as they used to. From an outsider's perspective, Trump looks certain to win at this point.

This is interesting. You seem very hung up on numbers here. I asked you to back up your statement that ‘more and more people’ are turning against BLM and didn’t get any numbers. I didn’t even get an anecdote in support of this trend.
Do numbers matter or not?
It's not very interesting.
I never said anything about numbers. I just said more and more. If it was 30 before and 50 now, it would still be correct.

Try reading the news or watching the TV News. All reported on BBC News tonight.
Japan Today's own article on this story this morning used the word 'Thousands' in the headline because that is plausable.
When you say millions (which means at least 2 million), what figure do you believe it to be?

Half a million visitors to Dorset means people heading to the beaches especially Bournemouth as stated by the conservative MP.
Hundreds of thousands hit the splendid Formby beaches with police arresting people for not keeping social distancing.

"With 1/2 million visitors in Dorset, roads are gridlocked, hindering emergency vehicles & beaches are full - with Dispersal Orders on both piers.
Dorset is a county and not just one big beach.
And now I see it has gone from "millions" down to "1/2 million".
As I thought, you are exaggerating again to try and force a point. Stop posting untruths.

The attacker was known to the police. He has erratic behavior. Impossible to prevent these types of violent attacks.
It was entirely preventable.
He had been arrested for serious knife offences (threatening people) before. As soon as he had done that, he should have been stripped of refugee status and deported. Had that happened, the attack would have never taken place.

The motive hasn’t been established yet. It would be very poor reporting to lead on a headline like that before the facts are in.
Motive? What has that got to do with the headline?
I think you should stop being silly and looking for ways to discount and disprove things that you don't agree with personally.
