Adolph Hitler was also purported to be anti-establishment but as a socialist who supports nationalism I suppose you also admire him. Trump and Farage are as establishment as they come. They are selling you the same lie that political con men have been selling for millennia and sadly you are still buying it. They have your interest at heart as much as Genghis Khan did.

I have always said that if we seek abetter and fairer system in the future, we must do so by including all shades of political opinion, division will make the task impossible.

President Trump and Mr Farage are both anti the current establishment, which has outlived any usefulness it may have had.

The Labour Party are "reformers" as establishment as they come, I have more faith in Mrs May's Conservatives to keep up with what is actually happening in the Western hemisphere.

I am and always will be a socialist but have enough intelligence to understand that socialism will not come about till the time is right, in fact all the old labels are redundant as the new order becomes clear. As I have said before socialism will not be a "pleasant choice", it will be an absolute necessity.

You describe yourself as a socialist and then go on to say you believe that the terrible twosome are doing a good job and admire them even though they are the the epitome of right wing, anti-socialist politicians. If that is not a sign of someone who does not know his arse from his elbow I don't know what is. Excuse me for being confused.

Finished with your dishonest claim that accusations of Islamophobia was fukky investigated in any way shape or form by the Tories, Teribus
You do put 'em up to be knocked down, don't you?
Islamophobia is a far greater threat to the well-being of British citizens than antisemitism is, or ever was in recent history.
Britain welcomed Jews fleeing the Nazis, modern day Britain is happy to turn fleeing refugees back into war-zones facilitated by weapons we have sold to terrorist despots.
WE fill our shops with goods manufactured in death-traps by workers working at near slave conditions and wages. and we turn away economic refugees fleeing from the poverty we are helping create.
The West has gone through a long period of dehumanisation during my lifetime, and the main culprit has bot been The Labour Party (New Labour excepted), but the racist and misogynist Tories

I suppose the reason you are bored Shaw is that any discussion gets tiresome from the point of view of those who cannot bring anything germane to that discussion.

This intelligence and wit that you seem to think you possess only seems to work for you in groups where everyone is in agreement, or under conditions were those you are addressing cannot answer back. Under such circumstances and in such situations it is very easy to fall for and believe your own propaganda.

Unfortunately, you do not get away with it here on the 'cat. Here you have people who are prepared to confront points made by you. In doing so you present your argument in the shape of stereotypes well passed their sell-by-date and worn out ideological clichés. You and your pals are then confronted by detail and fact that for some reason you never, ever seem able to refute or counter - Why is that? You then resort to lies, smears, baseless accusations that are never substantiated and then finally you then subvert the thread by wittering on about whatever comes into your head (I suppose that is the forum equivalent of sticking a finger in each ear and yelling, "La-la-la" very loudly).

You and your pals over the last four years have all but destroyed this forum - that seems to be the only thing you have an aptitude for - Oddly enough, getting back on topic, Corbyn is exactly the same.

I sense a slight change there from Vicars and Teachers do not have a culture to not having a culture that is "commonly understood"

Make your mind up.

All groups have a culture the police, the armed forces, that set of lads in the pub on a Saturday night and teachers and vicars.

Now given that teachers and vicars are commonly found to have abused children it begs the question is it part of their culture.

Given that I only know of one person on this forum who has both been a teacher and is a practicing Christian maybe he could tell us if it is part of his culture.

Unsurprisingly your knowledge of sociology is as limited as your knowledge of anything even vaguely academic. A typical response from an uneducated oaf ........... I don't understand it, it must be crap. Thus your inclusion of it in "Liberal left wing socialists"

If you could understand it you would find that a culture can be defined in many ways and for many groups, e.g. a nation of people or a group who meet down the pub on a Friday night.

I don't expect you to be able to understand it nor to realise there are some right wing sociologist even one who claimed that the Black American population were educationally inferior.

"Ignoring the facts of tehse crimes and blaming it on a racial/cultural group makes you and Keiuth the racists that you are"

My prediction here is that the question I am about to ask will go unanswered as so many have done before but here goes anyway:

When Sherlock have either Keith A or myself blamed any crime on a "racial/cultural" group as you put it? I certainly know that both Keith A and myself have quoted various spokespersons from the British Muslim community who very publicly have asked the question as to why there seems to be a disproportionate number of perpetrators from a specific group among the 125 men convicted, but that was as far as it goes, their question still remains unanswered (It was that question that Keith A asked for comments on).

One single post of mine where I apportioning blame will suffice.

I believe that the complaint related to Islamophobia directed at the Conservative Party that was made by a member of the British Council of Muslims was investigated and found to be groundless. This was a complaint by someone outside the Conservative Party as opposed to the complaints of anti-Semitism in the Labour Party that were made by Jews who were members of the Labour Party.

Oh Raggy - Culture in the context we are talking about:

the ideas, customs, and social behaviour of a particular people or society:
e.g. - "Afro-Caribbean culture" · "people from many different cultures"

synonyms: civilization · society · way of life · lifestyle · customs · traditions · heritage · habits · ways · mores · values"


Sorry Raggy Vicars and Teachers ain't listed. Vicars and Teachers are not in themselves "a particular people or society"

By the way Raggy is it typical of "liberal Left wing socialists" who are supposed to respect worth, equality and the dignity of labour to denigrate fellow workers as, how did you put it? - dead beats and no-hopers - as you have done on another thread. But there again Raggy you are only the "little Sir Echo" of that other champion of the left - Jim Carroll - who believes that people should "know their place" and that there is such a thing as a "pecking order". Hypocrites and liars seem to be the qualifications for your little band.

The is a crude racist dejavu aspect to all this
Both of these right-wing fanatics have put in a great deal of effort trying to prove that the actions of several hundred criminals means that an entire population of a million and a half people are infected with a trend to rape underage girls
Just like all those "darkies" over here to take our women and jobs
Their attitude to racism is transparently politically motivated.
The Labour party is accused of racism - howls in support, despite the lack of basic evidence = "We accuse you of being a thief, but we are not going to tell you what you've stolen".
When the Conservatives are accused of Islamophobia and do nothing about ti - total silence, despite requests to respond.
So their "racism" appears to only be racist when it's carried out by the left.
When the Tories are accused of similar and appoint a racist Foreign Secretary, that's just Tories being Tories.
Wonder where the victims of racism feature in all of this, other than being used as political pawns in a game of racist and right wing extremism?
Keith's disgusting suggestion, far from helping rid Britain of criminals, encourages other crimes such as racial persecution.

Teri, look up the definition of culture.

I think you will find that any group of people can have one, be they teachers or vicars.

OK just this once, just for you.

"As a defining aspect of what it means to be human, culture is a central concept in anthropology, encompassing the range of phenomena that are transmitted through social learning in human societies. The word is used in a general sense as the evolved ability to categorize and represent experiences with symbols and to act imaginatively and creatively. This ability arose with the evolution of behavioral modernity in humans around 50,000 years ago, and is often thought to be unique to humans, although some other species have demonstrated similar, though much less complex, abilities for social learning. It is also used to denote the complex networks of practices and accumulated knowledge and ideas that is transmitted through social interaction and EXIST IN SPECIFIC HUMAN GROUPS, or cultures, using the plural form. Some aspects of human behavior, such as language, social practices such as kinship, gender and marriage, expressive forms such as art, music, dance, ritual and religion, and technologies such as cooking, shelter and clothing are said to be cultural universals, found in all human societies. The concept of material culture covers the physical expressions of culture, such as technology, architecture and art, whereas the immaterial aspects of culture such as principles of social organisation (including practices of political organization and social institutions), mythology, philosophy, literature (both written and oral), and science make up the intangible cultural heritage of a society.[6]

"On-street grooming, abduction, multiple-rape, prostitution, human trafficking, torture."
Caried out by a handful of criminals - nothing to do with a culture - certainly not one which condemns sex outside of marriage
Ignoring the facts of tehse crimes and blaming it on a racial/cultural group makes you and Keiuth the racists that you are

That's precisely it in a nutshell. Well said, Jim. Succinct, to the point. I can't think that anything else needs to be said on this issue.

OK Raggy I understand that you are incapable of answering even the simplest of questions raised by your "contribution"

1: Islam is a religion practiced by over 1.8 billion people spread throughout the world - there is no such thing as "Muslim" culture.

2: Being a vicar is a job/calling/vocation as such it is supposedly governed by Christian principles and teaching - not a "culture"

3: Being a teacher is a job/profession/vocation there is no specific "culture" among those employed as such.

The only culture you probably ever encountered would be those thriving at the bottom of those pots and pans you did such a poor job of cleaning.
