RE: Favouritism

A bit like 'you can take the boy out of the backstreet, but you can't take the backstreet out of the boy'?

RE: Favouritism

Oh, golly. Is that Freudian...?

I think Miwagi might be fantasising about your arse, Harbal.

You should never have gone gay that time.

RE: Good Radio, Good Smoke

My daughter tells me I'm a badass grandma. I'd love to meet the others. giggle

RE: Favouritism

It may have been the sexy mod with the long legs and sense of humour.

On the other hand, it may have been the Bible bashing mod with the high tolerance for racism and hairy bollox.

I think Miwagi might be too much of a gentleman to kiss arse and tell, mind.

RE: Good Radio, Good Smoke

It's lush and I'd gladly share it with you, Track.

It would be nice to have your company.

And in return, you'd get to see a posh, old Brit grandma get squiffy on 2 G&T's and the fumes off your smoke. I suspect that might be unmissable. giggle

RE: Good Radio, Good Smoke

I have some roast vegetables, nice bread and some G&T.

What are we listening to? laugh

RE: FAREWELL TO ENGLAND — Jolly 'OL England

I think you've just cited 7 Muslim mayors over a 10 year period, Galrads.

I realise the UK appears small to Americans, but I doubt that's even proportionally representative of the Muslim population, never mind a conquering mass.

Do you remember Grenfell Tower?

RE: FAREWELL TO ENGLAND — Jolly 'OL England

Let me tell you about the food thing.

Vegan diet is the fastest growing food demographic in the UK at the moment and the greatest focus is on providing for this.

Vegetarian diet is still popular and catered for in food establishments.

Allergen free food has boomed since the introduction of allergen labelling laws by the EU in December 2015.

There is some conflict of cultural interest in terms of providing halal meat in the UK and marrying halal standards with RSPCA standards. The compromise is that whilst chicken is often halal in non-Muslim food outlets, other meats are not. UK standards for the treatment of chickens have traditionally been poor and halal methods will be an improvement. At least the chicken will be dead before it's singed and plucked.

Halal provision is usually chicken, fish, or vegetarian and of course the vegetarian and vegan ranges are also suitable.

In school, my vegan-ish granddaughter has yet to be provided with a square meal and despite being entitled to free meals, my daughter has to provide her with a packed lunch. Maybe schools in other areas are a bit more on the ball, but schools aren't known for quality cuisine, or being able to tell the difference between a carrot and a chicken nugget, despite Jamie Oliver's high profile campaign.

I think we can quite safely call bullshit on the piece of propaganda cited in the op from the information myself and others have provided thus far.

It would be nice if someone in the know could explain the different levels of Sharia law and how Sharia councils have come about in Muslim populated areas to help manage community issues.

Perhaps it's also worth noting that there are three refugee 'hotspots' in the UK (Newport in Wales, I think Edinburgh in Scotland and possibly Leeds in England) where people are shunted about and often treated as if they are not human beings. Many of these people people have been traumatised by their experiences prior to escaping and live in fear of deportation and their lives. This will account for a significant number of Muslim people in the UK. I'm sure the good Christians who regularly spout their fear and hatred towards Muslims will be thrilled to bits at the inhuman treatment of desperate people in need.

RE: The Bedroom, etc

Talking of which, I need to be up in a few hours. Nos da. wave

RE: The Bedroom, etc

No, I kind of scrunch up in state of exhaustion. laugh

RE: I want to start a family

Give it another 5 years, or so and you could be a grandparent.

After the day I've had I can confirm it involves as many hospital appointments and is equally as fraught as being a parent. stuck

RE: The Bedroom, etc

Yeah, but I can't even be bothered to toss, Merc.

RE: Show Us Yer Arse!

Cleavage is cleavage, Harbal.

There's no need to discriminate, unless of course one type intends to take over the world and introduce it's own laws.

Although, I do hope you're not a jumper lumps apologist.

RE: The Bedroom, etc

At least you're getting your leg over, Merc, which is more than most of us get.

I just sleep with a pillow inbetween my knees because they're getting a bit crunchy in my old age.

RE: Hurray..!!! the likes or dislike is back....

Damn, I don't get that feature on the mobi site.

It caused all sorts of uproar and bannings the last (very short-lived) time CS had it.

I'm going to miss out on getting to observe the bitchin and bullying it creates.

I wonder if the Americans will have the right to conceal carry the thumbies...

RE: Show Us Yer Arse!

I think you've made it a little too complex even for the return of the intelligentsia to the forums Kaylana mentioned on LinsyJones' latest anti-Muslim thread.

Not that I'm suggesting you need to dumb it down, but maybe just a little less sophisticated.

RE: Would you rather have Women's Rights or Islam ?

Harbal, I think you might be inaccurate.

I don't think I have ever been called a Muslim lover.

I have been called a Muslim apologist.

I would like to clarify that I am in no way apologising for the countless hard working, perfectionist, polite, intelligent, generous, kind, gentle, loving, family oriented, helpful, funny, passionate, artistic, honest, musical, academic, warm, respectful, innovative - I could go on - Muslim people I encounter every day.

Why the blazes should I apologise?

RE: Would you rather have Women's Rights or Islam ?

"Is it not life - the right to live?"

Kaylana, could you justify your premiss for me, please?

RE: Pillow talk.

Have you got it on the fridge, Slice?

I guess everytime the thermostat kicks in, it would be like one of those massage beds. dunno

RE: Pillow talk.

My pillows came from the pound shop. I don't think they have a talk function.

They certainly don't have a loop system, so I wouldn't be able to hear them even if I slept with my hearing aid in. dunno

RE: Would you rather have Women's Rights or Islam ?

I think Mercedes' has made a succinct and significant point.

RE: Would you rather have Women's Rights or Islam ?

Try wearing a headscarf in the rain in Cardiff, Ivoryguy.

Some people are intolerant, whatever their culture, or creed. It doesn't mean everyone is.

RE: I love you, but......

I'm not sure who is in a relationship with whom, or what the nature of the relationships are from this message you cite Heavensmile.

However, each one of us can only live our own lives. We can only allow others the space to pursue their own lives, we cannot live their lives for them.

This message appears to be half allowing space and half interfering with someone else's chosen path. It's perhaps not quite as selfless as it's trying to appear.

It is difficult to respond to. It is perhaps emotionally manipulative, leaving someone feeling guilty if they pursue their own path. Maybe no response would be for the best, at least for the time being.

Maybe allow some time for everyone to find their own paths.

RE: Would you rather have Women's Rights or Islam ?

There's only a thin veneer of equality in the West.

I was impatient in my 20's, but things have moved forward slowly over the last quarter of a century. There appears to be a resurgence of campaigning for women's rights at the moment, particularly in terms of pay parity. Other minority groups are making slow progress, too.

As Heavensmile says, Muslim women have certain rights. I can't list them off with any accuracy, but I have had conversations with Muslim women on this issue.

Bear in mind, if Muslim women are subjugated in horrible ways, Western women are beaten and murdered by men, too.

Sometimes breaches of human rights are about people not adhering to ethical, or legal codes of conduct, sometimes the codes of conduct need to be changed, or instituted.

We all need to work together towards equality, respecting and including cultural differences. I dare say some Western codes of conduct are frowned upon as lacking in equality, or human rights, too.

One thing that is not conducive to moving forward is taking a 'holier than thou' attitude, but mistakes will be made along the way. It's how we learn.

RE: REAL Life Pet Peeves

Okay, option 4, or 1, on hold for an indeterminate length of time. Hope you can stand the synthesised Bonny Tyler muzak and the premium call change in the meantime. giggle

RE: Hex's Global Appeal for a Practical Solution

Move to Mars.

I hear there's water, but the Internet connection is poor.

RE: REAL Life Pet Peeves

That was a good effort John, but it lacked conviction.

I think we should try to at least appear more upset about our nationalities.

Y'know, like, if only we were real, live Americans like everybody else. crying

And not being funny, or anything, but you're a bit brown. It's like you've been holidaying in Marland, or something.

RE: REAL Life Pet Peeves

She doesn't like foreigners, John.

You can cry and wail at the disappointment and butt hurt of it all with me, if you like.
