I have American friends and not one of them eats vegetables. Literal beige diets. They also have such poor quality of produce that UK and Europe refuses it. We aren't known for our food over here, but shit, we do good comfort food and have good quality produce. Best food I've had is from a Gastro pub in the Norf.

According to recent lore, the Good Gimp of Essex has denounced his evil brother, the Sinister Summerset Gimp. There are rumours that the two brothers engaged in a vicious clash that tore through the english countrysides, and many of the Good Gimp's Gimplings were injured and faced huge casualites.

Today I will tell the tale of how the Good Gimp of Essex and the Sinister Summerset Gimp came to be.
Long ago, in the early age of Ingerlandia, there lived two humble peasant brothers known as Gimpleton and Gimpledung. They were close as brothers, and enjoyed their simple poorfag life, but knew nothing of the land beyond their little village - this is because the Arriva buses there were fucking shite and cost £7 for a single and they couldn't leave the village, but anyway.
One day, the Gimpson brothers came across a large tree bearing shiny succulent black fruit - this was unlike anything the brothers had seen before, and they were mesmerised by it! Gimpleton was wary, but Gimpledung immediately reached out to grab a piece of the fruit and scranned that shit like no tomorrow. "That was mint" He exclaimed upon eating the delicious fruit. Gimpleton thought nothing of this, and also scranned a fruit from the tree.
What these simple brothers didn't know however, was that this fruit was a very magical fruit indeed. Each piece of fruit had the opportunity to turn you into a Saintly Gimp or an Evil Gimp, and you couldn't choose.
Suddenly, Gimpledung attacked his own brother, and a long and deadly fight ensued until Gimpleton was forced to flee. When he returned to his village, he noticed that the village had also been cursed by the tainted fruit, and every other poorfag peasant was turned into a likeness of Gimpledung. Fearing for his life, Gimpleton fled to the blessed lands of Essexodar to live his new life in secret.
In the meantime, Gimpledung had wrought fury and despair upon the lands of Somerset, and you can tell because Yeovil is still a shithole to this day. He ruled over the kingdom of Somerset with a malevolent latex fist, turning it into a land of hopelessness, desperation and people with weird accents.
So it was that these two brothers were named The Good Gimp of Essex and the Sinister Summerset Gimp.

I'm visiting my parents in Scotland for Christmas and just want some tips.
1. The house will most likely be freezing due to the energy bills, I prefer it toasty and I usually struggle when I visit and TBH it keeps me out of the house more than anything. Any tips on staying warm?
2. I want to eat a lot of UK food, I've only got 7 days but I'm bringing fibre sachets and want to make the best of it. So, is there anything new/interesting at Greggs and Wetherspoons? And anywhere else. I haven't been since last Christmas. Last time I had the halloumi fries and they were amazing. I'm going to get a munchy box, chippy and Chinese at LEAST but I think the British are quite innovative with their junk food so maybe there's something I don't want to miss.

i love my heated blanket so much, it's one of the best things i have ever bought. keeping me alive when it reached -5 last night. i also got a smaller electric heating pad to put on my chair. I second thermals too.

No. 1437910

other than the suggestions for thermals, layers, hot water bottles etc. i recommend a large thermos flask so you have constantly warm drinks to hand, just keep topping up. instead of frequently turning the kettle for your tea to only turn cold after a couple of minutes.
also, not the kind of suggestion people enjoy, but random spurts of aerobic activity like dancing or jumping jacks, really does help. as does spicy food (but NOT before the jumping jacks. careful now.)

No worries nona. It's weird how they managed to buy out so many existing stores. Me and my friends used to joke that Morrisons was a fascist store because we found the logo design really brutal (before it got re-designed into something softer - pic related) and seemed to suddenly take over lot's of pre-existing supermarkets. Like an invasion. I've never forgiven it.

Sainsburys is comfy, if you happen to have a decent local store. And their produce is usually decent, compared to all the others.

I'm glad some of you are actually interested in talking about supermarkets. I have a strange obsession with them and understandably most people I know aren't interested. I usually spend a couple of hours in supermarkets, slowly wandering around, looking at everything, like a retard (only if it's quiet) and have to go alone because I will drive other people insane with how long I take.

Isn't it regional? Nobody down south calls it high school. My school had 'high' in the name but we never called it that, it's definitely a secondary. Even if it is/isn't correct I prefer just saying 'secondary school' to ppl online to be precise because US high school is from ages 14-18 and that just feels different to the memory of being 11-15 then going to a totally separate sixth form college.

Growing up we went 3 years without putting the heating on and were fine but we were also skint and dressed in lots of layers during winter. Personally I only put the heating on when I need to dry clothes, and even then I keep it on low - I don't know how healthy that is but I'm pretty used to it by now, but ymmv.

Nonnies, what is your favourite police procedural TV drama series?
Imo, Prime Suspect is still top-tier. I absolutely admire Helen Mirren's character and her story arc. Everything else is so immaculately and talented done, too. Even the background characters are interesting to watch. I think the second season and the first episode of the forth have are the most exciting and moving in terms of the plot and issues concerned.

No. 1448828

We are only offered foreign language classes starting from age 11 where the little kids begin secondary education. I’m 25 and it was compulsory to do one (and only one) other language on the curriculum at the time but apparently they’ve scrapped that recently due to a shortage of teachers and funding. I might be wrong on this. Imo starting a language at 11 is way too late, I was a straight A student in French but can’t really string a sentence off the top of my head now whereas it seems like all the other Euros who learn English from when they’re 5-6 are basically fluent and can hold a conversation with me online even if they’ve never left their countries. English being the lingua franca is a blessing and a curse but the people in education who could stand to make it better don’t even try. You could argue there’s no interest for it in the here but it’s not like Germany makes sure all their schools are full of kids who want English classes.

Secondary school for most. Age 11+. It varies. In my area, French and German once a week, until aged 14. Then you can drop. Majority do. German has always been very unpopular. Only a few thousand take it up. French is very badly taught, you copy from a textbook, no talking and little listening (to a shitty tape).

I wanted to add more, but because i lived in a diverse area, there was a lot of people who had second languages like Portuguese and arabic and they would get them to do the gcse tests in their home language just to give them the opportunity to get an easy qualification and probably to increase overall testing scores in the school because most of them got high grades.

Oh and I want to add that, in my school specifically, we did Spanish and French from 11-13 or 14, then we could only pick either of the two for our GSCE, then I think we learnt it two or more times weekly. I remember having ‘double French’ on a day (two lesson blocks in a row) and again on another day in the same week.

Fellow bongs, I need a fact check. I know a moid who said ‘scrote’ a few times in previous conversations. He thinks I thought it was a funny word because I did a confused laugh and asked him where he got that word from, he explained “it’s a northern thing”. I thought scrote was a pretty British word to begin with because we have so many words for balls and saying it in a US accent sounds wrong, then I joined this place for years, now I’m surprised to hear him say it. There’s 0 chance he knows about LC and is fucking with me, it’s pretty ironic he implied it’s just what lads say when we banter. Does this mean we can get away with calling men scrotes irl?

Is political discussion allowed? I'm just wondering how is everyone planning to vote whenever the next general election comes around. Are we going to finally get the Torys out? For Labour voters, are you still willing to vote for the party even when half of them can't give a straight answer to the question 'what is a woman'?

No. 1451308

I want the Tories out and I used to be a Labour voter but now I find myself genuinely politically homeless. Labour are tranny-pandering spineless arsewipes who don't really have an ounce of genuine leftism in them anymore and Tories are happy to see electric bills rise to £500 a month and do fuck all about it. I really don't know what to do about voting.
I think I'll end up voting Labour regardless honestly but then I just fear for the outcome of women. There's only one good point for Tories and it's that they're not shilling for trannies (as much, anyway) but I come from a part of the country that was decimated by Conservatives so I can't bring it in me to ever vote for them. They've made it clear they dgaf about the working class.

I feel the same, the absolute state the tories have left us in blows my mind. Completely in the same boat, politically homeless, no one represents my interests right now as working class woman in a minimum wage service job. I feel powerless, as dramatic as that sounds lol. I've always voted Labour but this time I feel so conflicted, it should be an obvious choice when you see what the conservatives have done to the country but then I see the hate Labour women who speak out about trans issues face and I lose what little faith I have in Labour, they're slowly erasing women's voices and our rights. In my opinion though, I think it's only a matter of time before all of the bullshit of the trans movement begins seeing the light of day among everyday people. There are only going to be more and more detransitioners, more of them will attempt to sue the NHS too. More and more public figures are coming out in quiet support of JK too.

This is what is motivating me to do something. If we lose our ability to define ourselves as a sex class and the right to refuse men from single sex spaces then we are screwed.

No. 1452650

I keep going back and forth on this. If it felt like Labour would actually make significant social + environmental improvements then it would be a lot clearer.

Also, in terms of thinking of voting with the most vulnerable in mind… I do think this gender shit has and will continue to have more of a negative impact on vulnerable children and women. More than half the population but particularly the women at the bottom, who don't have cushty lives where they can identify as whatever they want. The real world knows what a woman is.

Saying that, despite the Tories hating trannies, it does not stop the harmful effects of gender ideology. The NHS still allows men into female wards, universities still allow men into women's toilets, rape shelters (except for Beira's) allow men. So even if there are laws that supposedly protect us, they're not being put into action. So is there even a point?

And we know they hate women just as much. Our health secretary is anti-abortion, is another thing to keep in mind.

It's very hard to access help for mental health problems when you cant afford it. I was told by a psychiatrist that I don't need meds and will be fine with counselling.

This is like a 20 day old post but I was thinking about this while I was home in the UK for Christmas. Food quality in the US is noticeably different when you buy it cheap, but you can find some of the best food there too. Mexican food is unlike anything we have here, you can buy freshly made tamales there and sweet bread. You can also find super authentic, cheap and healthy Korean food unlike here where you'd probably need to go to London for it. Clam chowder from Washington and cheese from the mid West is fantastic. San Francisco is known for its sour dough bread. It's like how people kind of bash the UK for toad in the hole, when in reality we have some really great food. Don't be afraid to try the food in the US because you can find some really good stuff.

The thing about Tories is they might hate trannies but they don't care about women's rights. And many tories are in favour of self ID (like theresa may, fabricant etc.) so we could see a turnaround at some point.

And even if we don't have the self ID laws, it isn't making much difference. Like I said here before - NHS still allow men into women-only wards, men are still allowed into women's rape shelters and support groups, men are still in women's sports. Many of these cases are based on self ID but go unchallenged because of the current climate and the trans-inclusive training forced into these institutions. Protection for women is never on their minds. Any 'win' we have against the gender shit is just because Tories hate anything related to LGBTQ+.

I'm English, my boyfriend is American. We started dating just before the pandemic and he was in really great shape. Pandemic happened, and he ended up working from home. He couldn't go to the gym. By the time I next saw him in late 2021 he had put on a lot of weight and he was clearly very self conscious about it. He has since only put on more weight and he is about double my size. I don't know how to politely motivate him because I am not attracted to him and I worry about his health. When he met my mum, she was egging him on to eat more and more. I know she had sweet intentions but I wanted to try and stop her because he puts on weight so easily. I think it's a British thing to just kind of gloss over it which is why I've let him get to this stage. Meanwhile his dad screams at him for getting so fat.

No. 1457563

does he want to lose weight? now is the perfect time because you can frame it as a new year's resolution. you could mention wanting to eat better in 2023 and see how he reacts to that. if he says he wants to do the same, then you can start holding him to it.
but ultimately it's his responsibility and it can't be on you to motivate him all the time, if he shows no interest or willingness. tell him you worry about his health, if it continues.

No. 1457578

He goes between wanting to lose weight and just completely giving up. He tried a no carbon, refined sugar diet a while ago which lasted about a week.

Something that really annoys me as a Brit living in the US is the amount of us who just lie about what America is like and the Americans who idolise our country. The amount of people in the UK who believe contactless payments and bank transfers don't exist is ridiculous. A load of people also asked me what it's like having to drive everywhere, when public transport where I am is free. Driving is also super cheap, I spent about £1k learning how to drive in England. Also, I lived in the middle of piss nowhere in the UK and you needed a car to get around. Its just city dwellers who suck on GWRs cock. Also heard people say US education is "the worst in the world" when they go to Nottingham Trent. I'm pretty sure US has the highest no. Of top Unis globally.
I talked to an American who told me they were moving to Northern Ireland because of the recent ban on abortion and rising costs. When I told her that abortion was still illegal in NI and that it was the most expensive place to live in Europe, they said "it doesn't affect me".

Are you talking about universities or in general? When I see fellow Europeans shit all over US education it's based on what's taught from primary school to high school because the average American doesn't know some stuff that's taught in European schools (supposedly, the only Americans I know irl were university professors and the ones I see on TV or online are actually really stupid so I can't speak from my own observations). Anyway, the average American doesn't go to Harvard to get their degree is what I'm saying.

No. 1458549

Higher education typically means degree level upwards. They have a higher proportion of top universities compared to UK. So the average American is much more likely to attend a top institution than someone in UK. I think their courses tend to be much more intense too. I knew someone who did a semester abroad and they had to learn A-level higher maths in one semester. When I googled it it seems like their education system is ranked around the same as ours but it really varies in quality. There are some places with a population of like 7 so education is not going to be as great as if you live somewhere else. Geography and wealth disparity plays a huge part in their secondary level education.

This was the first time in my mums entire life she had to rely on the NHS and they left her to die. She has been a tax payer for over 40 years. I really struggle to defend the NHS after this experience. I was left to care for my mum after the incident with no support whatsoever.

I am also a brit who lives in the us and the notion that us public transport is better than uk, especially london transport is ridiculous. I live in an area where public transport expansion was snubbed because it would spread crackheads even though there are already crack heads hiking around. I will say, us high-school is definitely shitter than the uk but higher education is better than the uk.

No. 1459127

that's horrifying, i'm so sorry. i've spent a lot of time in NHS hospitals (as well as working for one) due to an illness that required frequent visits for treatment and have had a 90% positive experience, except for A&E. I think when it comes to ambulances and emergency wards they are so overstretched especially. almost every month at work we are told we have reached a new 'critical incident' level. it just gets worse and worse and it makes me sad. i really don't want to switch to the US model of healthcare but that's what the tories want and they have no interest or intention in fixing the NHS. I would be in ££££££s of debt or likely dead without it though.

No. 1459163

What a horrible experience. I hope you and your mother never have to go through anything like that again.
I've been to A&E only once, after burning my lower body with boiling water. They put me on a bed and forgot about me for over 3 hours. Someone came in eventually and said "Oh! You're still here?". Did they expect me to give up and go home?
I've tried getting medical help though a GP for my mother and her referrals never get sent off. They tell you to sit and wait when in reality noone is actually working on your case. I legit fear if I ever get into a bad accident I will have no hope of getting medical help here.

No. 1459262

So cool to hear you're also living abroad. I do agree with you. I'm living in a pretty hippiesh city where all public transport is free. Luckily it's mostly international students on them and they have security on all the trams. I visited a border town in Texas a while ago though, and there were no pavements. To get from one shop to another you need to drive. Its somewhere you can't live with without a car so I think both extremities exist here. As for secondary education, I think some aspects of their system work better and some aspects of ours work better. Our exams are better and more rigorous. They have a lot more foreign exchange programs to learn languages which are few and far between in the uk. I also like that they can take uni credits in year 13 that's a really good idea. Universities there do have a really polished system though. It's also a lot more accessible because they have community college and a lot more online programs.

I just want to say that wetherspoons are more depressing each time I go back to visit family. I used to love that I could go to a pub and eat hot food for so cheap (it was 4 quid for the burger and pint combo) but now it's so unpleasant it puts me off wanting to eat anything. The tables are almost always sticky and there's a gloomy aura about the place.

Far up north it's dire. I'm from Switzerland and make 3x annually than I would the equivalent position in the UK, yet I caught myself thinking "shit that's expensive" for a LOT of stuff.

there is no incentive to work in the uk anymore.

i would argue that the UK is really only a good place for people who do not work, or who work part-time for low wages and qualify for low income benefits.

if you work, you're gonna be taxxed out your arse in order to support those aforementioned groups while living a very deprived sub-lifestyle, even if you have a partner to share expenses with.

in addition to this, the average professional salary in the UK does not provide adequate income to purchase a house here (avg. $400,000) however people who occupy council houses (government houses, 17% of the uk live in there) are entitled to buy that house at an enormous discount (which is paid for by working people like yours truly) through a scheme called Right to Buy, which gives them to opportunity to purchase at a large discount, which is paid for by public funds (taxpayer money).

so essentially, while professional taxpayers (doctors, teachers, nurses) on middle incomes can't afford to buy their own homes, the government has no issue with using our tax money to subsidise houses for other people who either dont work, or who work min wage jobs.
i am not trying to cast judgement on people who do not work, but i will certainly be joining the mass exodus on working people who defect to other countries with more reasonable taxes and wages.

the best strategy for brits is to get the free university training in the uk, and then get the hell out of dodge and get paid fairly for their work. and yes, you are reading this table correctly. otherwise you are stuck working for third-world wages, paying first-world housing costs, AND having an outrageous tax and council tax bill to boot.

Yes but how long does it take for the transaction to appear in your bank account nonnie? In the UK it is instant. I can send my friend money on my bank's app and they get it within seconds. Do you still have to use CashApp or Venmo to do that?
Most of America is the middle of nowhere. Last time I was there my friend lived in an apartment complex that pulled out into a highway. You literally could not leave or enter by walking at all. Being too lazy to walk or stuff being far away in the UK is not really the same as no pedestrian crossing.

The UK sucks now but when I moved here in 2009 it legitimately was better than the USA for the average person.

I hate this too nonnie. I always wanted to be a research scientist, but after seeing the starting salaries at like £27000 for all those years of education i'm planning on emmigrating as soon as I finish my undergrad.

I also hate when people say that nurses shouldn't be striking because it's selfish. What would they say if the doctors could strike? All they want is to be able to live comfortably after the exhausting work they do. Especially I support the ambulance workers and 999 operators who end up with PTSD after a year on the job and are still around minimum wage. Like you said, most sensible healthcare workers fucked off to private or another country where they get paid fairly.

Have you seen the reform UK party? I normally vote labour but if I still live here next general election I think i'll vote for them, their economic policies seem decent and we need a change from the conservative crap we had for the last 12 years. Starmer's a sellout so he's no better.

Nta but junior doctors took strike action years ago (and seems like they will again soon), and people just thought they were acting like brats. The average britbong is suffering from such a degree of brainrot that they cannot see a connection between their inability to get medical treatment and the political shite going on.

Regarding the Reform Party, if the polls continue this way until the next election I’d encourage anyone to vote for whoever they want. Otherwise, if you disagree with what’s currently happening, tactical voting is required. I have a lot of issues with Starmer’s Labour but I’d rather get them in than vote for a smaller party that better aligns with my views, just to see another overall Tory victory. It’s not worth it. I took comfort in the suggestion that the big parties were all centrist now, but this shitshow has firmly convinced me otherwise.

Contactless is instant. I can check my banking account and it shows the transaction has been made immediately for both my UK and US accounts. I mostly use PayPal and Venmo because for some reason my British sim card blocks me from downloading cashapp so I can't speak for that. Basically, on PayPal it puts it into your PayPal balance and then you need to withdraw it but Venmo deposits it into your bank account immediately without needing to give the other person any details besides email or phone number. As for bank transfers, it works the same as my UK one too where you put in a friends details and it shows up as deposited straight away. I think some banks prefer you do it in branch to prevent any scams (especially with older people).
I'm from the middle of nowhere Welsh countryside where one bus runs every 2 hours and there are about 2 lamposts. It's a good 30 minute drive to a Tescos. Where I am right now has free buses and trams so it's a pretty accessible city in the US. I will say though that I visited a town in Texas (that was 70% title loan businesses and 30% dollar trees) and it had no means of public transportation or even pavements. It was one of the poorest cities in America so you saw a lot of people having to walk across busy roads. Learning how to drive is much cheaper though which I think is good, I think they even offer driving Ed classes in some schools which I wish we could've done in UK. Some rural parts are absolutely impossible to navigate on foot here.

i think people just aren't used to knowing what looks or smells in date anymore. it used to be something we relied on but now get scared to use something one day past it's sell-by date which is only a guide. i'm glad the dates are going because it will stop me personally wasting so much food (i have a mental block when it comes to using past the sell-by date because i'm retarded but i think a lot of people are the same way, unfortunately).

it doesn't help that a lot of supermarkets seem to store their fresh produce in really shitty conditions. so even if it's within date, it's all slimey and rotten. tesco being the worst for this imo.

On my way to the gym I walk past something resembling a homeless encampment then I go into the building and there's always one homeless person sleeping in there as it's the only building on the high street that's open 24/7 and today there was two of them. Idk how many times I've seen someone get kicked out by security in my local Sainsbury's and lately there's been crackheads coming up to me and asking for change IN the goddamn shop, something that's never happened to me before. A few weeks ago there was a rather normal, regular-looking eastern European woman outside the Sainsbury's crying and begging for food. The increase in the number of crackheads and homeless in my area over the last few months has been absolutely staggering, so much worse than even during the pandemic. Never seen anyone using out in the open before, now it's just a regular occurence to see strung out junkies in the local parks.

I live in London and it's never been a particularly glamorous area but it really feels like we're turning into the US minus the insanely good wages and huge houses.

Anyway, has anyone been noticing the same lately? Idk if it's my brain overreacting due to the constant doom mongering in the media or this country is really turning into a shithole.

I guess he was lying as they usually are but I felt bad because I saw him stop a few women and they did give him money.
I used to work in the center of a big city and it made mefeel completely unfazed by any beggars. Every day at the bus stops, the same person needs 20p for their ticket to go to hospital. Same guy on the bus spinning a story how he's stranded and needs to return to Canada. I worked in a charity shop and beggars would come in and demand I give them our stock "because you're a charity! you're supposed to help me!". This was half a decade ago but it does seem worse now.

You are 100% right. I legit saw scrotes in datalounge crying about their favorite pornstars fucking tifs and they get mad when "straight" scrotes they want to see sleep with normal gay men, fuck TIMs because it's literally fucking a man with tits.
Gay men don't allow tifs to truly fuck up things that are theirs. It's never a big push and I bet you there's barely any tif crying to be on this show, unless it's one of those super passing Tifs using the show for other reasons or simply for representation. They barely add TIMs to dating shows that are m/f. People want to see attractive men and women compete.
Im just rambling but the more I spend time lurking gay male spaces I realize why tifs aren't successful. They are women. Men are crazy about dicks, straight or gay or bisexual.
Gay men don't need tifs to come on their show, to change the narrative or to be treated like men. The average gay man is sleeping with other men and there's no reason to even pretend. I've seen more tif/Tim relationships.

Gay men are easily the most delusional and objectifying subgroup of people. I would argue that a lot of young gay men don't want to watch shows like this anyways, but regardless the community itself is so exclusive and hostile even to its own kind that they have no trouble being far worse to tifs. The amount of gay men that are Trans inclusive to transmen is extremely small (they dont care to respect transwomen on surface level though of course), and since gay men have a penchant of becoming obsessed with policing women, being able to also police and criticize tifs is a goldmine for them, the only thing that stops them from doing it more vocally is the "cancelling" they'd receive. Gay men regularly make fun of and call tifs pooners and will have group chats where they send pics from their twitters with ewwww and keys mashes. They're so sexual constantly and objectify literally anything so the thought of other men actually liking tifs make them angry and repulsed, theyre entitled babies and there is honestly no difference from gay men and straight men as far as policing women goes. They're just as obsessed with the coom because otherwise there would be no reason to care. It's crazy how they're able to tell tifs to fuck off and call them homophobic with nearly no pushback but lesbians who do the same thing are mocked, ostracized, and threatened constantly. Rules for thee but not for me!! Gay men are obsessive compulsive about hypergrooming and standards, even many of the ugly fat ones who sit online all day, so they think they have every right to criticize and put women under a microscope constantly. They also pick all their fights with women because they're still misogynistic pigs and taking their anger out on women while being too cowardly to go after real men is standard practice. Its crazy how they'll call women Karen when they are the most Karen demographic in existence. Also any criticism of their misogyny makes you homophobic allegedly, God forbid they have to conduct themselves like adults instead of teenage girls.

Philip Schofield has just been exposed as the creepy nonce he is. He had been grooming a young male child since the age of ten to go onto have sexual relations with him. Of course, in ordinary fashion, ITV knew all about this and helped to cover it up. I knew he was a piece of shit ever since he decided to come out as gay after being married to his wife for several decades, but now it turns out that was a news story manufactured by the media conglomerates because more and more people started talking about how he openly grooms and has sexual relations with this young boy. Are there any men in British media that aren't nonces? I bet Simon Cowell will be exposed next.

This has been pretty well known for years now, even outside the schizo tinfoil communities I hang out in. You'd see it in comment sections on articles about him online quite frequently. I find it very odd it took this long to be confirmed. The whole coming out saga kinda reminded me of Kevin Spacey. "yes I am a predator, but I'm a GAY predator so pls feel sorry for me". I feel like that was damage control, that he wouldn't have come out of his own volition. Pissed me off to see Ranj Singh complain about This Morning being toxic, though. He's another gay moid who married a woman and strung her along for years.

Good to see Jill Dando mentioned. Poor woman tried to do the right thing. There used to be a great documentary about her murder online, very detailed and covered her time on Crimewatch and how she knew about the noncery going on but ofc it's been wiped off the face of the internet. I'm gonna try and find it and hope it's been mirrored on bitchute or something though.

I’m not an emotional person whatsoever and don’t cry at anything but I can’t stop crying about the Nottingham murders. I think it’s because the kids were both the same age as me. They were literal kids, probably on a high after a night out, thinking they were safe with each other, them bam, their life just gets brutally taken away from them. It’s seriously fucking me up and I can’t stop thinking about it, they were fucking teenagers and it could’ve happened to anyone in that place at that time. They had their whole fucking lives ahead of them, like not even 4 days ago they would’ve been thinking about stuff they were going to do in the future and that’s just been fucking torn apart by a disgusting monster who didn’t deserve to be in our country. The fact that the girl saw her friend being murdered in front of her and knew what would happen next, the fact she had enough strength and willpower to crawl near a house before dying with nobody coming to help just fucks me up so so bad. I just feel absolutely distraught for their parents and siblings, I can’t even being to imagine how they are feeling right now, how they must’ve felt receiving the news, I genuinely can’t comprehend the feeling they must be experiencing and I don’t think they have fully processed what has happened yet, doing speeches so soon after the incident.

We need to stop allowing moids into the country without extensive background checks.

Bullying is subjective. Every culture will have its own ideas. I don't know how you'd compare. There is no legal definition here. Schools define it loosely as intention to 'hurt'. Gossiping on your personal social media account could be considered bullying if brought to the attention of school staff. Some schools may be very strict, some not. There's a general feeling we overreact to stuff. I don't know if that's true. And yes there are loads of stereotypes about posh boy's schools but few of us, especially here, know what really goes on. I'm sure there's some individuals who physically bully ofc, but I doubt private schools turn a blind eye to or encourage it like they used to in the 70s which is where a lot of these stereotypes originate from. Today, 40% of students aren't even white. Just an example. People think 'posh white boys sent away from mother!' kek, but that is not accurate.

Cornwall and Devon are the whitest and most conservative areas of the country. I live close to the Devon county border in Somerset. In general just be respectful and if you live in a small rural town or village get involved in the local community. Most people here aren't politically correct and may say insensitive things or be casually racist. It's rarely said with any ill intent, it's more that it's unusual for anyone foreign to be in these areas and local people don't know any different.

vapes, prime drinks, and american sweets are the trifecta of a dodgy shop

No. 1682522

I had to travel to some utter scuzzhole near where I live the other day to take a test and there were about 3 vape shops on the same tiny stretch of high street as well as numerous phone repair shops. Hardly any of them were open even though it was 11am on a chewsday. Makes perfect sense that these are the places people buy to launder the money. It’s sad because it doesn’t create actual jobs or improve the wealth of the area, just makes degenerate drug dealers richer meanwhile everyone else is still queuing outside the job centre.

It’s because they were beating her. She had bruises and scratches all over her face. Her stepmother took her out of school for that reason and lied and said it was because of racist bullies. She was probably procuring a future Islam wife for one of her worthless bastard sons. Sara’s 13 year old brother also did nothing to protect her, he was being coddled due to being a boy while Sara had everything taken from her.

Because statisically, men do get more custody when they ask (it was above 60% iirc), but they love crying they don't get most of the custody ignoring the fact most of the time they don't ask, and then when none of the parents actually want custody, the custody is pushed onto the mother anyway.

>the mother gets custody in almost all cases
How wrong and naive you are. Courts are biased towards fathers. Women everywhere are being forced to co parent with men who abuse them AND their children and men only have to breathe the words “parental alienation” to get full custody despite abuse allegations from both children and their mothers.

This is the same in America btw. The only reason fathers don’t get custody is because they can’t be bothered to take it to court. When they do, they win the vast majority of the time.

No. 1684240

Most men who cry about this are just MRA tards who don’t even have children. However, a lot of women do put their children at risk by prioritising their new partners over their children, and this shouldn’t be ignored. The most dangerous person for children statistically is mums new bloke.

No. 1684243

nonny, when you discover a sure fire way to find out if a man is a pedophile or abuser, please inform us all. meanwhile, have some empathy and consider not all of us want to be alone and stop blaming women for men's faults.

No. 1684245

You’re misunderstanding me. Women will disbelieve their children’s allegations or overlook clear abuse from their new partners, and it leads to death sometimes. That’s a fact. I don’t know how you got THAT from what I wrote, but when a woman KNOWS her child is being abused by their partner and makes no effort to leave then yes, she is partly if not equally responsible for their death. It’s her duty as a mother to protect them and she’d rather not be alone than do that.

No. 1684247

Take Star Hobsons death. She was brutally beaten to death by her mothers female partner, who made no effort to leave her and even joined in the abuse. And Arthur Hughes, who was battered to death by his fathers new girlfriend, who also made no effort to leave or intervene and joined in. Both parents are responsible for their children dying, along with the person who killed them. Was there a sure fire way to know these people were child abusers? Not at first, but once the beatings and severe punishments started, then THATS it.
I’m trying to be polite but I’m actually shocked at how stupid your reply was.

No. 1684252

nowhere you implied it was about women ignoring their child being already abused. you said prioritize, which could mean anything in a broad spectrum. also often the women are also being abused and/or manipulated by the same men.

Prioritise is the key word here. Prioritise him being there over their safety. Only idiots need things like this spelled out for them.
Being abused isn’t an excuse to become an abuser and neglecter of your own children. Think about how often you hear about girls saying their mother disbelieved them or took their abusers side when they were sexually abused? By either mums new fella or some other male in the family. There’s no excuses, ever. They protect abusers, they are abusers.

I would consider this just trashy, it’s what some chavs aspire to be or look like.
To me chavvy is (some) people that live on a council estate, have knock off everything, live outside their means (on benefits and have no concept of the value of money), live off Iceland microwave meals, steal stuff and sell it at car boots. Sit in their front gardens drinking, are loud and shout at people for looking at them, uneducated, etc etc.

I realise some of that would be considered as just someone who is poor and I don’t mean those people, chavs make it a way of life - it’s who they are.

Got it spot on. This is the new age of chav. The middle class chav. The chav that made it off of the estate working trades, running their own salon, tapping their garish acrylics over a keyboard in a call centre. They have a harmless French bulldog as opposed to a pitbull and neither of them would ever touch drugs. Their children do well in school, but not too well, and they’re polite to their neighbours and a credit to their communities. Good on them, I think.

Samefag, I don’t think these people look poor. In fact I’d say they’re a young couple doing well for themselves.
