Getting weird on here. Such Partisan thinking that you refuse to condemn somebody who doesn't want 'up-skirting'

Insano...^^

To remind. This was the post from Spots, word for word in full, without the benefit of any opinions, commenting on the topic of an M.P objecting to a vote/law being rushed through in a manner not as laid down by the government itself: That is a fact, not an opinion:
Quote:
"Yet more political hysterical nonsense from the metoo generation. This time upskirting fails to become law[/b] and fragile tosspots begin screaming about politicians "playing with people's lives". !!!"

He then added his view, quote:

"It's a photo up your skirt love. Unless your pudenda is instantly recognised by your community, it could be anybody's slot. Get a fxcking life. unquote

We obviously read it differently no matter how many times you screech "No, no, no!" . I am not defending the poster, just giving my view on his point, which wasn't, as you so blandly suggest, trivialising taking indecent photographs, stating his true attitude to women (a married man with a wife) or with the intent of inciting others. That's just your personal take and still missing the main point of it all which was political and governmental mis-practise. .
The wisest and the best of men, nay, the wisest and best of their actions, may be rendered ridiculous by a person whose first object in life is a joke...Darcy. Pride and Prejudice.

Ok, take the last line. What do you think that means? It isn't a personal take. Either you think that is appropriate or you think it isn't.

It isn't even an interpretation. That last line he's written directly says "its a photo up your skirt, its nothing". That is literally what he says. It literally states that is "no big deal" because the photo is "not identifiable".

That is what he's written. Do you think that is acceptable? Do you think telling victims of such practices to "get a life" is acceptable?

That is what he's written. There isn't an alternative interpretation for that sentence.

Jeremy Hunt!!!!

May really has lost the fcuking plot.

Disliked by a fair few Tories because of bad press, dispised by many in the middle and all on the left, her advisers really are incompetent or closet Marxists.
Lurch to left, joker to the right here you are stuck in the middle with me. :hang:

Merkel Muppet. (Puppet was too kind).

Hunt has been very loyal to May. It is not what you know but who you know.

Winning the World Cup would give May the perfect opportunity to just quietly cancel Brexit. Nobody would notice, or care.

Wow!
Ok four things.
1. Tango and Monty, thank you for having an open mind and for reading a post without instantly categorising it but instead analysing it.
2. Dr Hotdog. Fxck you too. xxx.
3. As there is no football at the moment (and yes, I'm classifying the World Cup in that category), it's taken me a while to notice the above exchange.
and 4. [Deep breath] I used the language I did in the last section just to piss you Mr BWFC-i off, because you are a self-centred, opinionated, clique-minded wanker who dismisses every other opinion apart from your own as wrong-minded, moronic, evil nonsense.
Anybody with any analytical ability whatsoever (which excludes you [BWFC-i] and Dr Hotdog) would see that the critical critique behind the post was the reaction behind the result being PLAYING WITH PEOPLE'S LIVES. Is it fxck, you moronic metoo tossers.
4a. Do I personally go out taking photographs up women's skirts - No.
Do I know anybody who does - No.
Would it upset me if a photograph of my wife's vulva was posted on Snapchat ( for instance) - Yes.
But, I ask: How do I know it's my wife's vulva? - Probably I won't.
Am I in favour of a law that prohibits up-skirting - Yes.
But, if it ain't passed, IS IT DESTROYING PEOPLE'S LIVES - NO IT FXXXING IS NOT.
That's not a leopard!

WALLACE: You say nothing happened to you, but I need to ask you, domestically - not internationally, domestically, inside Russia - why is it that so many of the people that oppose Vladimir Putin end up dead or close to it?

Former Russian spy and double-agent Sergei Skripal, the victim of a nerve agent attack in England. Boris Nemtsov, a political opponent, gunned down near the Kremlin. Investigative reporter Anna Politkovskaya, murdered in an apartment building. Why is it that so many people who were political enemies of Vladimir Putin are attacked?

PUTIN: Well, first of all, all of us have plenty of political rivals. I'm pretty sure President Trump has plenty of political rivals.

WALLACE: But they don't end up dead.

PUTIN: Well, not always - well, haven't Presidents been killed in the United States?

Whether or not that Salih Khater was motivated by Islamic State or not, it is unacceptable that somebody who spent two years working in Libya before landing here and claiming asylum, was granted British citizenship and then his first fxcking act was to apply for a visa to go back to the fxcking country he had 'supposedly fled [Sudan]'.
Any fxcker claiming asylum from a specific country should be banned from going back to that specific country.

They're taking the fxcking piss!

Now that I've turned up to the wrong venue I've settled in for a coffee and Full English at one of my favourite cafes in the universe. Sat reading the 'paper I note on page 21 that the murder rate in London is set to be double (200%, 170v85, twice as many deaths) than in the ever so distant past of 2014. Indeed the murder rate has been elevated well above and beyond, every single year (i.e. 2015, 2016, 2017 and this year) since 2014.
I seem to recall somebody on here, with a name starting with P and ending with ock, claiming that things were better than Ever Before In The Entire History Of Crime.
I don't think so.

Interestingly now a no deal break with the EU is very much on the cards, Mr gobby and his henchmen from the federalist wing are clearly receiving instructions from their German masters to cut a "unique deal'. It would appear the arrogant tiny French president is now talking about restructured relations within the EU.
Just shows you should never listen to the panic fannies bent over, trousers round ankles and vasline to hand, need their Nanny type remainers.

I'm sick to death of hearing this bullshit trope that the EU has secured peace in Europe.
The EU has been in existence for just twenty six years.
The Soviet Union was in existence for seventy three years.
Neither achieved peace in Europe.

You see Spots, it was the EU, by their account, that brought peace in the former Yugoslavia and that's what they keep banging on about, now't to do with the US and NATO like it was the EU what did it.
