  1. Haha. But it's not really a fair comparison, is it? More like inviting everyone to a rock concert and then confining the after-party to the redheads.
  2. The role of white people in black-dominated organisations can be highly ideological. Ever heard of Steve Biko? Also, since at least 90%, if not more, of the people attending the BLM march on Douglas Promenade were white, it does seem a little odd to reserve an internal elite determined purely by race.
  3. That letter has all the characteristics and many of the key phrases of a Tier 3 university sociology/gender studies degree radiating from every pore: We had previously been in discussion with Manx Radio in regards to how we can work together to tackle racism and discrimination within society, and part of that plan was a series of shows. However, we will not be used as a tokenistic gesture to divert attention from the deeper systemic issues rooted within their organisation. All we're missing is a few "epistemics" and the odd "intersectional" and then it would be complete. Note the use of the term "we". These people do not speak for every minority person in the Isle of Man, but they arrogate to themselves the right to do so. Beyond time to head back to uni, chaps.
  4. I happily contributed to this lassie's Gofundme appeal a few years ago, thinking she seemed like a decent and valuable member of our community. I am sure she still is, but she has all the hallmarks of someone who has been duly brainwashed at university.
  5. Guess who the (Manchester) Guardian supported in this affair? Just goes to show that noone has exclusive rights to moral righteousness and sanctimony.
  6. https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2020/jul/03/cancellation-activism-persuasion-cancel-culture-twitter This woman normally spouts bollocks, but she's on the right track here.
  7. Am loving how around 800-900 was unquestioningly reported as 1500 and is now mutating into "thousands".
  8. Quite correct. Classy would have been a small advertisement in the local papers thanking Douglas residents for their patience over the long years of disruption. No such acknowledgement was forthcoming.
  9. I understand that in Australia, they have levels of lockdown. From midnight, it goes down to Level 3 from Level 4 (or something like that). This means drive-throughs are allowed to open, so there are queues of bogans in the early hours.
  10. ’The lessons to be learned from this extended sorry saga must surely include the importance of speaking truth to power, and of ensuring that our systems of government - national or local- are truly accountable.’ Sanctimonious little twat.
  11. Er, I wouldn't worry too much about that. He was already well catered for, as you might expect.

  13. Aw come on. That's basically the Manx Forum's equivalent of: "Welcome, you sound like you might be a bot".
