Re: Black Lives Matter

I don't think it would have anything to do with the sheep in the passenger seat.

Police followed me for 3 junctions then followed me off the M62 and pulled me up outside of my work office, reason given again to check it was my car.
Again that was in an Vauxhall Astra GTE.

Third to was in Northampton late evening.
My friend was a speedway ride, he had an accident during one of his races and couldn't drive his car, so I did.
Again stopped (by 2 police cars) to make sure it was my car (my mates obviously but I was covered to drive it).
Car was a Ford Escort RS Turbo.

Fourth time was in Leeds on the M621.
Driving up the motorway at 30mph.
Stopped by the police to see if I had been drinking...which I hadn't.
Also said he stopped me because I was in a big vehicle driving slowly.
That time I was driving a 3.2 V6 Vauxhall Monterey (Vauxhall badged Isuzu Trooper).

I had the same problem with my 3 ltr senator. And 225 bhp Sri. I was stopped that many times you would think that we were buddy's. It was the same thing every time I bet this cars insured. I had a bad day this time and one had the normal police hat on, and I said I bet his head goes to the top of that f! Uvking hat.

Re: Black Lives Matter

Man who spent June insisting ‘All Lives Matter’ now calling for Navy to sink migrant boats crossing the Channel

A man who spent most of June and July tweeting #AllLivesMatter whenever anyone called for help for a particularly vulnerable sub-group of our society, has today decided that the way to stop migrants crossing the channel is by having the Navy sink their boats.

Simon Williams, 45, is of the view that ‘all lives matter’ only when it helps weaken the argument of people he doesn’t like, preferring the moniker ‘some lives matter’ when the lives at stake are those he’s not particularly keen on.

He told us, “ALL lives matter – and that shouldn’t be a controversial opinion and everyone should all shut up and agree with me.

“It’s important to remind people that all lives matter whenever they call for protection for a very specific group that doesn’t include white people.”

However, when asked about the ongoing attempts by asylum seekers to cross the channel in dinghies, he told us, “It’s ridiculous, they’re getting away with murder. We should just send the Navy in, sink a few of them and that’ll be the end of it. It’s mostly terrorists anyway.”

When it was pointed out that only yesterday boats arrived that included both children and pregnant women, he said, “Yeah, but that’s how the terrorists stop you blowing them up. They know we’re weak. They’d soon stop coming if they all ended up at the bottom of the channel.

“I don’t know what you mean, this is no way contradicts my previous position that all lives matter.”

Sociologist Derek Matthews told us, “Yeah, we’ve noticed the correlation. A Venn diagram of people who tweeted AllLivesMatter in the last eight weeks and people who say we should be making these migrant dinghies turn around and go back to France is basically a circle.

“And yes, it’s a really big circle full of arseholes.”

Re: Black Lives Matter

Seattle BLM protesters demand white people ‘give up’ their homes.

https://nypost.com/2020/08/14/seattl...p-their-homes/

Extract:
A group of Black Lives Matter protesters in Seattle marched through a residential neighborhood this week demanding that white residents give up their homes, dramatic video shows.

Footage of the Wednesday demonstration posted to Twitter shows a crowd of dozens chanting “Black lives matter” before an unidentified man projects his ire toward nearby white residents — saying they are living in a historically black section of the city as another woman in the crowd yells that they should “give up” their homes, the clip shows.

“Do you know that before your white ass came here, this was all black people?” the man says. “Do you know people like you came in here and basically bought all the land from the black people for less than what it was worth, kicked them out so you could live here? Do you know that?”

The man continues: “’Cause if you don’t, now you f–king do — now do something about it!”

If you watch the video on your link the guy is calling out of the squeezing out of poor black families to make way for the Gentrification of a historically black low rent area in Seattle .....

I can understand his anger as Seattle is not the only city this is happening to . I have seen the same happen in London in working class districts were long term residents are being pushed out, priced out, their homes to make way luxury apartments built by Boris's friends.donor developers and some of which will lie empty for some investor from abroad , with no reciprocal social housing built for the traditional residents and their families when they grow up ....

This is not a new demonstration in Seattle against the problem of Gentrification and not only taken up by BLM .... as you will see in the Newsweek piece below


You will see the detrimental side to gentrification as it is obvious in Seattle as property values there and rents rise, the original residents often poorer and people of color are pushed out of the neighborhood. Like the historically black neighborhood of Seattle Central District which has now become majority white and for the more affluent.


Protesters Want Seattle De-gentrified—

For more than a week, protesters against police brutality and racial injustice have occupied a six-block stretch of a Seattle neighborhood and turned it into a festive hub for their demonstrations.

They named it the Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone, or CHAZ, since renamed the Capitol Hill Occupied Protest (CHOP), after police withdrew from a police station in the neighborhood after clashing with protesters.

Since then, the protesters—who come from a variety of groups and interests— have formed a movement known as Free Capitol Hill and demanded broad reforms, including to the criminal justice system and healthcare. Also among their list of demands is a call for the "de-gentrification of Seattle, starting with rent control."

But why are protesters calling for the city's gentrification—where the character of neighborhoods is changed with an influx of affluent residents and businesses—to be reversed?

Re: Black Lives Matter

I am not sure how you get 'priced out' of a home that you own against your will. I am sure someone will explain.

It is the bumping up of rents, own home being a rental / leasehold. A method used to drive out Tennants so buildings could be re rented to higher wealth groups. The best affordable dwellings in the USA are Rent Controled, ie, rent fixed to a set formula.

Re: Black Lives Matter

Good to see another traitorous far right thug locked up albeit only for 2 years.

Is Tommy still inside or has he taken his family to a safe country ?
