Room 101 - Desert Island Vids mash up.
at 15:47 6 Aug 2020

The Rules

- Choose 8 music videos which make your ears bleed, the soundtrack to your Room 101

- Please accompany each video with your reasons for hating it, it can be a sentence, it can be a paragraph

- You will also be taking the Bible (or alternative religious book), the complete works of Shakespeare, plus the worst book you've ever read in your life.

- and one pointless item. The thing you wish you'd never bought/been given.

- and choose one person to take along, the worst company imaginable (maybe provide a photo)

Desert Island Vids
at 23:41 5 Aug 2020

You've heard it a million times, you know the rules, but here they are anyway...

The Rules

- You each get to choose 8 music videos to take with you to the 'Desert Island'...post up the videos so we can have a listen.

- Please accompany each video with your reasons for picking it, it can be a sentence, it can be a paragraph

- You will also be taking the Bible (or alternative religious book), the complete works of Shakespeare, plus one book of your choice.

- and one luxury item.
(the chosen luxury item must not be anything animate or indeed anything that enables the castaway to escape from the island, for instance a radio set, sailing yacht or aeroplane)

If you could single out one person who had the most positive effect on your life (other than your parents)...

The self-appointed intelligentsia all flounced off to the new board;

"Hope (Insert poster with common sense's name in here) don't come across", many of them declared.

On the new site there were threads devoted to how shite this board now was, one stock line was that the posters that remained here were just a bunch of oddballs and racists...


Frankly, this attitude drove me back on here.

....and now, one by one, they all come back!

US Election 2020 - Delayed?
at 00:25 31 Jul 2020

Donald Trump doesn't like postal voting as he says it is susceptible to fraud (it really is actually) and has floated the idea of delaying the election.

Postal voting will be increased due to Covid-19.
The USA have never delayed an election in all it's history.

If Trump gets his way on this should we be worried about what that means?
Or do you have some sympathy for his position?

EU Corona Virus Bail Out Fund
at 14:22 27 Jul 2020

Bundesbank president Jens Weidmann has this to say;

"I generally consider collective debt for extensive transfers to be alarming,"
“At the very least, the package shouldn't serve as a stepping stone for large-scale EU debt for regular household financing."
“It is important that relief measures are limited."
“Then they automatically expire in the further course and the public finances stabilise again."
“They may be necessary now, but the state should withdraw quickly after the crisis."
“The state is not a better entrepreneur.”



Yannis Varoufakis says that the bail out fund is too tiny (once split up between 27 nations) to actually fix the problem.


It is estimated that the UK is £55bn better off as a result of not being one of the contributors to this fund.
Do any posters wish that we could have taken part?
Why would it have been advantageous to the UK to have been a part of this deal?

...her crime? Demanding that we discuss race in this country based on facts, stats and what the law says.
She believes, as I do, that this country is not a racist country and fares very well when measured against other countries on any analysis of the facts.
Mirza has stated that the claims of some that this country has institutional racism can be attributed to their 'perception'.


This rational analysis of course now makes her one of those 'brown racists' or something. We, who remain rational, must stand firm and not allow this person to be bullied from her job.
It only takes the silence of good men to allow all sorts of evil to be unleashed.

Is Cultural Marxism a conspiracy theory?
at 00:48 17 Jun 2020

Ace and Drizzy feel able to claim that the very notion of Cultural Marxism is a taboo subject (suspicious that) and an "anti-Semitic conspiracy theory".

So it should be easy for them to destroy my argument then right?
Or alternatively their mate ECB will delete this in order to avoid the conversation.


So I'll kick us off then boys with an extract from Wikipedia, does it contain anything false?
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frankfurt_School

The Frankfurt School perspective of critical investigation (open-ended and self-critical) is based upon Freudian, Marxist and Hegelian premises of idealist philosophy. To fill the omissions of 19th-century classical Marxism, which could not address 20th-century social problems, they applied the methods of antipositivist sociology, of psychoanalysis, and of existentialism. The School's sociologic works derived from syntheses of the thematically pertinent works of Immanuel Kant, Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel, and Karl Marx, of Sigmund Freud and Max Weber, and of Georg Simmel and Georg Lukács.
Like Karl Marx, the Frankfurt School concerned themselves with the conditions (political, economic, societal) that allow for social change realised by way of rational social institutions. The emphasis upon the critical component of social theory derived from surpassing the ideological limitations of positivism, materialism, and determinism, by returning to the critical philosophy of Kant, and his successors in German idealism — principally the philosophy of Hegel, which emphasised dialectic and contradiction as intellectual properties inherent to the human grasp of material reality.
