Daily review is also your post.
This provides Standardistas the opportunity to review events of the day.
The usual rules of good behaviour apply (see the Policy).
Don’t forget to be kind to each other …
That face looks familiar! Is it the new State Services Commissioner? or the gNatz' strategy advisor? I'm sure I know the guy from somewhere
Local bowls club, mate.
For those that didn't see it,
50% more time for the greens*, see.

He's for the gurgler. Not a moment too soon.
The Mail on Sunday has a quite comprehensive article covering the OPCW scandal , and includes an email leaked by OPCW FFM members.
I'm not sure this can be passed off as disinformation by Pro Assad/Kremlin stooge /contrarian/conspiracy theorists, but I'm sure there'll be those who try
All in all, not a good look for the leadership at OPCW, who incidentally are drawn from diplomats rather than scientists
Also raises the question of how long this politicisation has been going on?
Then there is OAS, assisting in the imperial over-rule of the south.
Thanks for that . That Syria gas thing was found to be dodgy from the start, from memory. And knowing how foreign intel services work to create new facts and the Iraq WMD thing meant the whole story had strong 'fake' overtones.
Blue Monday by Killer Klowns.
(New Order Cover and Freaky Music Video).
The freaky video is mopstly excerpts from Fritz Lang's "Metropolis", 1927.
a good cover of a classic.
yes, this one also true to the original.
Thanks solkta. I enjoyed that version.
either he is very ill or he has found his true calling as a twitter blogger
Bogaletch Gebre: obit of Ethiopian woman who managed to do wonderful things for women like her mother who she said had been regularly beaten, had her legs, jaw broken and her sister who died in childbirth because of difficulties birthing her twins caused by the FGM she had received when young. Bogaletch did so much, very inspiring.
thanks for sharing
Advocates are pushing for a much needed change to the way relationships are handled. No comments in the article about how the housing situation is being made worse and possibly costing MSD due to the fact people are fearful of living together. It's a policy ffs. Make some clear rules so everyone can tell the difference between flatmate vs partner. Really is it sooo very hard that MSD can't do that?
It actually gets right to the heart of freedom of association and moral oppression. Women who did the feminist thing believed that women should be respected and their roles respected. So the way to go would be women receiving money and help from the state if they were on their own, while their children were under school age, and then getting part-time work so they would be part of the enterprise society. That was how it was supposed to go.
But lack of commitment to women's advancement by politicians and community leaders, led to neglect of the principle of supporting mothers to fulfil their biological and social roles well, and giving support to them getting skills training so they could become almost self-sufficient as household heads.
So now it is back to thinking that these are sloppy, possibly amoral, losers that society looks down on because there is a growing anti-human, rigid and autocratic, snobbish and superior approach to all in society that don't conform to the narrow middle-class ideas of style over substance. Good people are being done down by the sisters-that-never-were, and those feminist sisters that did stay true to the belief of women having a special role of building and holding society together are few and often impotent in the fact of the Moral Brigade and the Anti-human Neolib economists and misanthropes.
The idea of respect is stamped out, and the solo women must be kept under control or shoved off to be some man's responsibility before they infest the earth with more brats! No respect for the wonderful women who struggle to manage all the conflicting requirements of a hypocritical society, and if they fail they are branded as inferior.
Good hold that man – he is not fit to be in society and even as an old man will still try to prey on the vulnerable.
Birds of a feather…
You must live an interesting life, Chris, if two different organisms with one similarity are perceived as the same……….
Doesn't context mean anything to you, Low Context MacLiteral?
Nah, just require more evidence for ornithological observations of substance.
Did your eagle-eye perceive a bird-brained deposit?
I believe it's called a distraction display.
You two should get a room.
Will you have chicks with me?
"I will build myself a bower, by yon clear and crystal fountain……….." Songs, singers and musicians like this make life a joy. Dick Gaughan would not leave Britain until he’d seen Thatcher gone, such was his commitment through song to the cause.
Thatcher – bower – there is a connection there. What a pity she couldn't keep her namesake's skill going. Instead she set out to destroy the nests of the peasants and was given a hero's send-off by the gratified barons and would-be aristos.
I was fascinated to see a video of her talking to Gorbachev, and see his amazement at her full espousal of the nuclear bomb, and the MAD balance she imagined could be successfully maintained. He looked with surprise at this unrealistic, immature, prissy woman full of hubris, still thinking like a Head Prefect from a conservative college.
And I think that description of Thatcher isn't far off from applying to Johnson, except the prissy bit.
That is a nice bit of harmony and quiet sweet folk thanks.
Evidence to prove something you've received the literal meaning of when context says that literal meaning wasn't intended? Fuck me.
Chris, birds of a feather is not a saying with a literal meaning. It is an analogy, a likening.
It was also a political jibe, saying in essence from a one-off context that Key and Clark are alike. I don't subscribe to such political memes that 'all politicians are alike'. That's a distraction technique, one deployed to lead people away from political activity, and benefits none but the status quo.
I don't need to do your last request.
I believe I may have well taken you the wrong way. As you can see, I have a reaction to politicians of opposite stripes being lumped together as it can be a political tool to persuade people not to engage in voting for example. The old "Don't vote for them. It only encourages them" meme. Similarly with "They're all the same".
So, my apologies for not seeing that your main point was about collaboration over an economic and social goal.
I might call that an own goal, even. Cheers 🙂
I hope we have the same context here………
