    At the risk of outing myself as someone who just hates the country, refuses to accept Brexit is a roaring success, ****s on the flag, wishes death on the Queen, doesn’t even own a golden jubilee crockery set etc. I don’t think comparing Feb 2021 with Jan 2021 is very useful unless someone is needing to spin a positive story to be lapped up by those in need of confirmation bias. The historic figures they attach paint quite a different story, unfortunately.

    Yeah it’s getting terribly difficult to find negatives to Brexit.

    So I hear. Even Nick Clegg has had to u-turn. Still I am sure there will always be a few fanatics.

    There's a lot to be said for this. There are three cases taken up by BLM. The first is the black guy stopped for a traffic violation, who decided to fight two cops, grab the taser of one of them and discharge it at him. George Floyd who had allegedly been passing counterfeit notes and refused to get into the back of a cop car. And Daunte Wright who decided to push cops away and flee arrest.

    I don't excuse the bad police reactions to any of these, but the fact is, these black guys are authors of their own misfortune. Their own actions put them in danger of a trigger happy or negligent cop. If they hadn't resisted arrest, all three would still be alive.

    White folks run too, the difference being they don’t seem to get killed.

    Are we doing the victim-blaming thing again? It feels early this time.

    I think more white people are killed per year by the police than black people

    In 2021 so far, 213 civilians have been shot fatally by police, 30 of them black. If you try to flee the cops or shoot them with their own tasers, you put yourself at risk.

    It's relevant comment on a current event, even if it doesn't fit in with your agenda

    I don't think the dirty scum white should be castrated paedos work in gangs
    I also don't think they are allowed to carry on doing it because the cops are scared of being accused of racism

    It absolutely is a relevant comment on a current event. Not sure I’m the one with an agenda here though, mate.

    Are you serious, Bobby? Asians make up less than 5% of the population

    Looks like you, mate, since you're the one complaining that it's being mentioned

    Maybe all the honkeys being killed are being shot by racist black cops

    I didn’t complain though. I asked a question.
