I assume you consider yourself an immigrant. Must be hard to break into life in the capital of the fens without the necessary number and shape of fingers and toes.

Whether or not it's racist, it's just the wrong interpretation. Culturally certain groups work really hard in education. Doesn't mean they are intrinsically more clever.

Certain other groups don't.

I know what you are as well.

so, are we allowed to describe some groups as super-hard-working ?

and other groups as all a bunch of lazy feckers ?

brains or effort ? Starsky or Hutch ?


and is it absolutely verboten to describe one group as clever AND hardworking ?

so the Chinese kids doing excellently at school must all be part of some kind of a conspiracy then ?

It doesn't seem to have bothered you so far.

Next one to make personal comments rather than a response to the topic gets a card!

You have all been warned.

When I am weaker than you, I ask you for freedom because that is according to your principles.

When I am stronger than you, I take away your freedom because that is according to my principles.

Jacinda Ahern resigns, the BBC has said there will be a day of national mourning in the UK

[Link]

I liked this comment I'm surprised it got passed the central committee at the BBC.

"Reaction to her announcement has been varied. One local from her own Auckland electorate told the NZ Herald Ms Ardern was "running away before getting thrown out", blaming her for increased crime and rising living costs."

I donít feel glee. Quite the opposite. I am aligned with Hong Kong, Singapore and Malaysia through historic work. We do, however, need to face facts. Especially as we chose to accelerate our loss of economy and influence.

And yet, despite our largely service industry economy suffering more than many during COVID, we have recovered more quickly than our competitors in Europe.

So much for Brexit being a disadvantage. Another lefty remainer myth.

UK is only G7 country with smaller economy than before Covid-19 and lowest economic growth.

Unlike you to quote a Guardian piece from last year.

 


Responsibility Deficit Disorder is a medical condition. Symptoms include inability to be corrected when wrong, false sense of superiority, desire to share personal info no else cares about, general hubris. It's a medical issue rather than pure arrogance.
