  1. I'm honestly somewhat bemused that you think this is a non-issue in the world. Rachel Dolezal can't get a job. She hasn't been able to get a job for 6 years because of her transracial belief. https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-9253923/Race-faker-Rachel-Dolezal-says-job-six-years-pretending-black.html I'm very happy for you to prove me wrong by starting Monday next week announcing you are in fact (and I'm assuming you're not already) black and that you identify mostly with black culture, specifically West Indian. You'll need to start growing some dreads and using patois. Do let us know how people react I'm sure you'll be proven correct and that absolutely no one cares... The key point being that you must insist you are black and not simply that you identify with the culture.
  2. Just because you can do something doesn't mean you won't face a backlash for it. This guy says he's Korean. https://www.instagram.com/londonoli/ He gets people telling him to take his life. And Rachel Dolezal was trolled mercilessly. Both these people clearly are mentally unwell. I'm interested to see any examples of Asians identifying as white? Surely these would be mixed race people who receive preferred treatment when 'passing'. Conflating sexual preferences or religion with identifying as another race/ethnicity serves no purpose in this discussion. Gammon IMO is in the same vein as Karen (and oddly similar sounding). Anyone up in arms about a so-called racial slur such as gammon should be just as miffed by a misogynistic AND racist slur like Karen...but they're oddly fine with it. Funny that.
  3. Annoyingly just sold my original A-Bike a few months ago.
  4. Race does not equal ethnicity. Here’s a question: why can a male identify as female, something that is genetically testable, but an asian person cannot identify as white?
  5. Hence why I’ve been calling for a centralised registration/licensing scheme for years now.
  6. https://www.barbican.org.uk/whats-on/2021/event/architecture-on-stage-peter-barber-architects?utm_campaign=950478_CCXART160921A&utm_medium=email&utm_source=dotdigital For the past two decades, Peter Barber Architects has been at the forefront of redefining how we approach the design of social housing, establishing a reputation for playful reinterpretations of traditional housing models such as mansion blocks and back-to-back terraces. Barber will present the practice’s latest housing projects across London.
  7. Anecdotally, NYC more apartments are coming to market. USA is often ahead of us in financial moves.
  8. Hence why Span estates are sought after.
  9. This is veering into Mums net territory Realistically, there aren't enough classic heritage British houses for all the non-classic, non-heritage neo-British people who want one. Gotta build the new stuff, ideally turning down the Hideous button.
  10. Latest search, same criteria. HSBC now offering 0.94 5 year fix 1k fee RBS offering 0.97 BUT only for EPC rated A or B.... Nationwide 0.97 1.5k fee.
  11. 😂 What is DARVO? Deny that climate change is happening/deny that human activities have caused it. Attack the credibility of those trying to slow or stop it. Muddy the waters. Sow confusion. Blame and distract. Suggest flooding in London is nothing to worry about because other places also flood sometimes. Suck it up you soft Southerners. Reverse victim and offender by claiming that environmentalists have just as much power as the oil/gas lobby. Repeat, repeat, repeat. Anyone else read Kim Stanley Robinson? The first chapter of his latest is highly readable. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Ministry-Future-Kim-Stanley-Robinson/dp/0356508862/
  12. The only thing that keeps me going is my impotent simmering fury 😜
  13. Graphs again. 😂 London always floods in September, totally normal donchaknow. Britain braces for thunderstorms as torrential rain sweeps country: Flash flooding hits London with Tower Bridge, major roads and Tube stations left underwater as THREE INCHES of rain batters central and eastern England
  14. Balustrade posts are not supposed to touch each other. 😩 And where are the overhangs! Zoom in on the light fittings next to each doorway (conveniently built without porches so that owners can be rained on while searching for keys) and witness the drip scum stain on the wall beneath. Could they have shoehorned some more black metal fencing in there somehow? Even the windows above the doors offend me, like the mad, sightless eyes of an island recluse. But sure, why not add a weird pergola crown thing on top of the stupid tower. Why not indeed. https://www.google.com/maps/@51.4650668,-0.2478541,3a,75y,218.6h,115.14t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1s-E6jdrafFjAO6f2FNEtvWA!2e0!7i16384!8i8192 A great, miserable wall of UPVC mullioned windows, dropped next to the South Circular. AND THESE PLACES COST OVER A MILLION POUNDS https://www.zoopla.co.uk/property-history/449-upper-richmond-road/london/sw15-5fa/54986342/ /rant
  15. As winter approaches I’m not sure consumers have that much ability to limit their demand, no matter what the price set. Another season of ‘eat or heat’ for UK’s poorest.
  16. Nice one. My abomi-nomination is 447 Upper Richmond Road https://goo.gl/maps/iX81HmyJMZF8DCCP7 Grinds my gears every time I see it.
  17. Imma need some stats there bud. 'Pretty sure' doesn't cut it for me. Happy to doff my cap at any proof of environmental groups spending 3.6bil. Heck, I'd love to see proof of them getting close to half that. Coz like, where's the money from eh? Over roughly the last three decades, five major US oil companies have spent a total of at least $3.6bn on advertisements – not counting their investments in public relations programs like sponsored beach clean-ups, or their influence through trade associations, dark money groups and campaign donations.
  18. Do you object to the large scale vandalism of tarmac roads everywhere? And the large scale vandalism of air pollution affecting our lungs and our brains? Why do large windmills trigger your disgust, but 1 in 5 flights in the world originating or ending at Heathrow is fine?
  19. Ask your Tory party buddies. I'm sure you have a few ideas as well. I tend to follow the money, and where there is no discernable benefit, follow the propaganda. How the oil industry has spent billions to control the climate change conversation
  20. Hope we've all updated our Apple devices... Security researchers at Citizen Lab have discovered an exploit that they believe has been used by government clients of NSO Group, the Israeli spyware company, to silently hack into iPhones and other Apple devices since February 2021. The discovery, which was made as the researchers were examining the mobile phone of a Saudi activist, was shared with Apple, which on Monday released a patch to fix the vulnerability. https://www.theguardian.com/technology/2021/sep/13/nso-group-iphones-apple-devices-hack-patch
  21. Group dynamics, they're all egging each other on. One of things I like about HPC is all the differing views and antagonism. Meanwhile: https://www.mumsnet.com/Talk/property/4347610-How-much-profit-to-sell-house-to-move Houses are selling for crazy money at the moment and I want to sell mine. No reason, just for money.
