Cambridge University Defends (then promotes) Racist Member of Staff
at 13:27 25 Jun 2020

A university has appeared to defend one of its professors after a petition was launched against her for saying "white lives don't matter".

Gopal tweeted: “I’ll say it again. White Lives Don’t Matter. As white lives”, followed by “Abolish whiteness" in a later tweet.

Without referencing the professor directly, the university tweeted: “The University defends the right of its academics to express their own lawful opinions which others might find controversial and deplores in the strongest terms abuse and personal attacks.

"These attacks are totally unacceptable and must cease”.

Dr Priyamvada Gopal, a professor in colonial and postcolonial literature at Cambridge University, has faced a stream of abuse after posting a series of tweets on Tuesday.

London Mayor Sadiq Khan
at 20:23 10 Jun 2020

London mayor Sadiq Khan promised today that he will begin the process of pulling down ‘inappropriate’ statues around London – after Bristolians dumped the statue of slave trader Edward Colston in the river at the weekend.

To investigate London’s landmarks, Khan has created a ‘Commission for Diversity in the Public Realm’ which will review statues and street names in the capital to make sure they reflect the diversity of its people. Khan said he expected the commission to find that it’s ‘not appropriate to be memorialising, or to be celebrating’ certain figures, especially those with a racist past and links to the slave trade.

In 2018, he proudly unveiled a statue of the suffragist Millicent Fawcett – the first-ever statue in Parliament Square of a woman. At the time, Khan declared that ‘from the very first week of my Mayoralty, I supported Caroline Criado Perez’s campaign to put up a statue of a woman in Parliament Square, and I’m so proud that the day of its unveiling is now upon us.’

But while Fawcett is mostly celebrated today for the campaign for women’s suffrage, less well-known is her ardent support of the British Empire. Fawcett was such a fan of Empire, that in 1901 she was commissioned by the government to lead an investigation into British concentration camps in South Africa during the second Boer war, after high mortality rates and appalling conditions were reported there.

When she arrived, Fawcett thought the camps were deeply necessary for the war, and her eventual report said the commission had a ‘generally favourable’ view of them. She also suggested that many of the deaths were caused by the ‘unsanitary habits’ of the Boers. Around 28,000 Boers died in the camps.

Fawcett didn’t have much thought for the participation of Black Africans in society after the war either. In 1899, she wrote that after the settlement of the war;
‘I hope we are too deeply pledged to the principle of equal privileges for all white races to abandon it.’

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Do you think Sadiq will include his pet project in the list of 'inappropriate' statues he intends to tear down? It begs the question as to whether he is engaging with this exercise simply to boost his personal popularity, considering he proudly unveiled such a statue himself less than two years ago.

The man is a colossal hypocrite.

This special moment occured 7 years ago
at 07:14 13 May 2020

This is arguably the most famous Premier League match we competed in during our Premier League years. Yesterday marked 7 years since Sir Alex Ferguson led his Manchester United side our for the final time at Old Trafford for a Premier League match.



What other special Premier League matches can you recall? I think Arsenal away when we won 2-0 is a close second.

Labour MP Diane Abbott Repeats Infamous Racist Statement
at 17:49 11 May 2020

"Eight years on from Diane’s infamous “white people” Twitter rage, Abbott has again returned to making sweeping racial statements, reiterating her infamous “White people love playing divide and rule” claim. Last month in a private Zoom call discussion with left-wing BAME Labour members – including Faiza Shaheen, Zarah Sultana, Clive Lewis and Bell Ribeiro-Addy – Abbott argued the leaked Labour report proved white people play the divide and rule card:

“We need unity between black, Asian, minority ethnic and Muslim people – we need the maximum public show of unity. Because time after time in the past 32 years I’ve seen efforts of people to organise disrupted by white people playing the ‘divide and rule’ card, and this time we can’t allow that to happen.”



It is little wonder why the Labour Party are under investigation for institutional racism when they continue to tolerate racists such as Diane Abbot in their party.

It was a fantastic match for the neutrals who came to watch Wayne Rooney.
at 17:29 8 Feb 2020

However for myself and the other 11,000 or so Swansea City fans in attendance, it was more of the same.

We struggled to create any chances. It took a horrendous goalkeeping error and an optimistic long shot to get ourselves on the scoresheet.

I dread to think about what shape our club will be in when Cooper eventually leaves. He's taking the club and most of our talented young players backwards.

What a despicable image to share online. That socialist political party murdered millions of people, yet former Plaid Cymru leader Leanne Wood thinks it's fair to liken them to UK citizens who do not want to be part of the European Union.

Let's hope she never wins the right to represent any of those 17,410,742 people she apparently thinks so lowly of again.

Shadow Home Secretary Diane Abbott
at 10:56 20 Apr 2019

Diane was pictured openly breaking the law on a train. She would be in charge of the police should Labour win the next General Election. She was caught drinking an alcoholic cocktail at 1pm in the afternoon on a train in London.

Susan Hall, who sits on the London Assembly’s Police and Crime Committee, said: “As someone who aspires to be Home Secretary, Diane Abbott should know better. How can she have any credibility if she’s willing to break the law? This is typical of a Labour politician; one rule for them and another for everyone else.”

Mick Neville, a retired Scotland Yard Detective Chief Inspector, said: “It’s shocking that she is breaching a law that was brought in to keep order on public transport."

Carolyn is expected to lead a group of cross party MPs in condemning a British Airways television advert which shows a couple winning on a slot machine whilst on holiday, the reason being it 'glamorises gambling'.

Labour MP Kate Osamor Resigns After Lying To The Public
at 15:43 1 Dec 2018

Remember the thread from last month?
https://www.fansnetwork.co.uk/football/swanseacity/forum/231968/labour-mp-and-me

It turns out that Kate lied, and she did know about her son's arrest and court appearance despite claiming she did not find out about it until much later. In fact, she wrote one of the five character references to the judge during the trial which meant her son, found guilty of selling Class A drugs at a festival where children have died from drug overdoses very recently, didn't even receive a prison sentence.

To top it all off, she threw a bucket of water and threatened to smash a reporter from The Times over the head with a cricket bat because she didn't want to comment on the revelation about her lies.

Labour whip and MP for Peterborough, Fiona Onasanya
at 20:14 13 Nov 2018

Fiona's car was caught doing 41mph in a 30mph zone. Instead of accepting she was speeding and paying the fine, she claimed a Russian man who was proven to be at his parents home in Russia at the time of the offence was behind the wheel of her vehicle.

Meanwhile her brother admitted three charges of perverting the course of justice last week for exactly the same issue, claiming the same Russian gentleman was behind the wheel of his car when he was caught speeding three times.

Yet Labour MP Fiona expects us to believe that this Russian gentleman, proven to be in Russia at the time, was actually driving the car and pleaded not guilty.

In my opinion she should resign. I suspect she will not, just like the allegedly homophobic Labour MP in South Wales and the nepotic Labour MP in London who employs her drug dealing son as a £50,000 a year Chief of Staff.

Labour MP and member of the Shadow Cabinet, Kate Osamor
at 10:50 10 Nov 2018

Kate is an MP in a city riddled with drug related crime and murder. Her son was caught with £2,500 worth of drugs at a festival which has a history of young people dying at due to drug taking.

He was later selected as a Labour councillor after the current councillor, an 84 year old lady was ejected in hostile circumstances after criticising momentum on Facebook, and was hospitalised as a result of the events. When it was finally revealed and he had to step down after initially refusing to disclose his crime, his mum offered him a £50,000 a year job as her 'Chief of Staff'.

She claims to have not been aware, for 13 months that he was arrested, trialled and given a ridiculously lean sentence of just 200 hours of community service for a crime that carries life mprisonment as an option. Financially he is desperate with a string of outstanding debts, yet somehow managed to pay for one of the most prestigious and expensive lawyers in the country. Of course this was all without his mum's help, as she didn't know it was happening.


Be aware, that if you think this is appalling, or if you suspect she may have known, you're a racist, according to Kate Osamor.

Carolyn has recently been accused of making homophobic comments to an employee in her office. Whilst she did deny them, she dismissed such homophobic insults as 'office banter'.

Yesterday, former MP for Swansea East. Sian James testified that she had to warn Carolyn previously for her comments and 'jokes' towards her colleague about her sexuality. It got so much that this person had to go to her boss because the 'jokes' about her sexuality from Mrs Harris were becoming too much to bear.

I personally think this is disgraceful. When you consider she is the Shadow Minister (Equalities Office) (Women and Equalities) for the Labour Party, it makes it all the more sickening.

For those who constantly tell me we are over achieving because we don't spend...
at 16:01 9 Apr 2018

https://pbs.twimg.com/media/DaU19znX4AARpKg.jpg:large

In 2016-2017 only Leicester, Everton and Southampton spent more than us on wages (excluding the big clubs). We are not plucky little Swansea fighting it out amongst the big boys, we're spending massively and should be doing far better.

Whether the blame for the underachieving lies with the owners, the scouts, the self appointed director of football or the manager is up for debate. But us not spending enough certainly isn't. I'd be amazed if the likes of Huddersfield had a player on 30k a week, yet we likely have multiple players close to £100,000 a week and they still made us look like a conference side.
