They've got a new target. He's black and they already hate him so he's the perfect choice! We can expect a few more articles and a couple of columns explaining exactly why Lewis Hamilton is an uppity cunt.



'Your job is to race round aimlessly in a gas-guzzling land rocket': Lewis Hamilton is ridiculed after telling fans the 'only way to save the planet' is by going VEGAN... after making career of driving F1 cars and using private jet to zip across the globe
https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/articl ... vegan.html



It's his fucking job.

To me, this bollocks is like saying a pilot is not allowed to talk about climate change otherwise they're a hypocrite. In fact, these idiots probably would say that.

This from an ex-pupil (and ex-Facebook friend) of mine:
To that snotty nosed kid Greta Thunberg that read her speech out at the United Nations the other day.
Don’t you dare put the blame on the older generations.
We realise that you’re backed by the professional anti whatever is in fashion people, but sit back and do a bit of research little girl.
It’s hilarious, all these school kids preaching to us oldies that we buggered up the planet!
Back in the 60’s and 70’s and 80's not a plastic bottle to be seen as it was all glass that were reused, pop bottles taken back to the shop.
No plastic bags, loose food was brown paper bags, all sweets were bought in 1/4lb put in a paper bag.
Mothers used shopping trolleys to carry heavy stuff or paper carrier bags with string hands.
You walked to school from the age of 5 years to 16 years not jumping into mummy’s 4x4.
No Burger King , McDonald’s or KFC giving away plastic toys to grab the almighty Pound.
No polystyrene food boxes for you to litter the streets with, we had used newspapers to wrap our hot food in.
Our milk was delivered at 4 am 7 days a week, in glass bottles which were collected by the milkman and reused so was Orange Juice
Holidays were taken in England, we were lucky if we got to go on an aeroplane to far off destinations.
So I think these youngsters need to take a look in a recycled mirror and think was it my wasteful generation who are messing up the planet....🤔 feel free to copy and paste

Yes, it's been doing the rounds.

The problem with that is; the people who are posting it appear to be acting as if the things they've listed were green initiatives that they themselves supported or wanted, rather than most of the things simply being the norm at the time before 'advances' in technology.

Now, if you put all those things they listed back to them and say "right, we want you to adopt all of these initiatives so as to save the planet" the same knobheads posting that would scream blue murder about nanny states and eco mobs.

Plastic bottles were introduced in 1947, although not gaining popularity until the early to mid 50's.

Corn flakes toys, anyone?

Yep, I remember squash being in plastic bottles in the 1970s.

Yep, remember those. And stuff you could get with coupons from 'National' Petrol, like glassware, 'Oojars' and Matchbox toys.

Also, I don't think people like Greta are blaming them for the past. What she's angry about is their lack of action, or them actively trying to resist attempts to improve the situation. Basically, the copypasta is just a load of bollocks. It's the sort of thing that, on the surface, sounds really good and hard hitting to the hard of thinking.

These same people will also argue that any kind of consumer side activism is pointless virtue signalling because China and India. Also, the climate is changing anyway.

But they still want their belly rubbed.

The "do you remember Spangles" tract above reminds me of a series hosted by Greg Wallace in which they replicated a typical high street from various decades of the 20th century.

Lazy nostalgia (forties was all Vera Lynn and VE day parties, sixties was all groovy boutiques and hippy wigs) aside, the interesting thing was the seventies episode, in which a supermarket opened (I should add, this was a actual live high street - Shepton Mallett I think) and all the shoppers stopped using the traditional bakery and butcher shops in favour of it.

When many of the people complained about the gradual disappearance of specialist shops, Wallace pointed out that it was them who chose the convenience of the supermarket. Tit he may be, but he was bang on the money there.

I see messages like that pasted on Facebook quite a lot. Often about other things.

They're always written badly, always go on too long, and always exhibit an earnest, passive-aggressive tone that seeks to, essentially, virtue signal and do down someone in the process. It's really ugly and yet so many people seem to think they're meaningful and/or insightful.

Quite. My father is prone to lamenting the death of the local high street as he knew it and everytime I point out there's a butcher's, greengrocer and fishmonger within a much shorter driving distance than the massive Tesco he habitually visits, his rejoinder is that he can't go to them because that would require more parking which is expensive because the council had to put charges up because of the reckless spending of the last Labour government.

How he got to Stalin McBroon preventing him from buying a cod fillet I'll never know :roll:

A comrade posted this on the book of face before the weekend:

Disgusted by the behaviour of the thuggish commuters at Canning Town and other stations yesterday. Since when did being inconvenienced justify mob violence? I'd bet a pound to a penny that the vast majority of those oafs shouting self righteously about wanting to get to work have thrown a sickie or been late for work with no good reason in the past twelve months. Reminds me of the old WWI posters, "What did you do in the war daddy?" except this time the question would be, "What did you do to protect the planet from climate disaster daddy?" and the answer would be, "I threw a peaceful protester to the floor and kicked his ribs in because I was going to be a bit late for work."

That ignores the fact that XR themselves had said don't disrupt the tube network, but these lot decided to anyway, to disrupt a transport network that is low carbon. Disrupt a network at a station that is used by people on low incomes, where if they end up being late they could get the sack. By a movement that has a lot of problems with being representative of people who are working class or BAME. That has already made one or two PR fuck ups.
