    Perhaps the imbecile could have sent the letter privately though, to the relevant people.

    Rather than posting it on a social media page.

    That wouldn’t have got our legions of gammon in a froth though.

    I’m watching it. It’s almost entirely 50+ angry right wing white blokes for some reason.

    Yes, that's clearly what has upset the French. But when people are dying, does it really matter? The letter doesn't contain anything the UK hasn't asked for before. It's truly pathetic to cancel meetings when organised crime is rampant on France's border and people are drowning in numbers. How do you deal with such thin skin?

    Yeah, it's only right wing white blokes that complain when someone flashes their penis in public. They're so narrow minded.

    It’s only right wing blokes that would have you think it’s a massive widespread issue worthy of serious attention up against everything else happening in the country and world.

    I've already pointed out why it is. There's a huge debate going on about the trans issue, encroachment into female rights and where lines should be drawn. If all this has gone over your head, I can't help you.

    Have you ever heard of Professor Kathleen Stock? Have you been following the abuse being sent to JK Rowling for claiming that women are those born women? These are two prominent examples of a large number of others.

    Oi shhhh trans are the real threat one trans person having a **** proves it. Just make sure you ignore documentaries like on the beeb last night where it showed that girls are getting harassed, assaulted and raped by boys, classmates. We’re not just talking the odd one or two, it’s rife. Also please ignore how some of the more elite schools, sure Corbyn went because he’s elite right, have been shown to protect these little rapists.

    You then have to ignore all the convictions and allegations against men, for harassment assault, rape, imprisonment, murder, etc.. only then can you see the real threat to women is those evil trans people, at least if we blame trans people then we as a society don’t have to consider male attitudes and actions towards women.

    TRANS!! The real danger …. apparently

    If we’re going to have a female Dr Who then this is sadly inevitable. Cheers Corbyn!

    This is so so so right.

    The attitude of far too many men towards women needs to be changed. That is the bottom line here.

    It starts at a young age, if parents don't instruct their children how to act to the opposite sex appropriately (and both ways boy to girl to boy)

    and all it takes is respect nothing else

    Whataboutery, but I agree with you and Beth that the threat by males against females has not been so high for years.

    So far as trans women are concerned, I see them as women born as men who have had their genitals surgically removed and female reconstruction implemented. They should have respect and full protection from society.

    I don't see trans women as men who dress in women's clothing and go around exposing their penis.

    The point is this is one individual you are using to imply things about the trans community being a threat. You’re a white, U.K. born male in London of a certain age right? .. what if I were to start focusing posts on here about the negative actions of people that meet exactly your demographic and imply there is a serious threat about people that match your demographic and that we need to focus on your specific demographic? I know for a starters they’d be considerably more incidents against women.

    You’ve been posting a number of times against trans people it kinda reminds me of the army fella in American beauty who was always fuming about gays.

    And that's the second time you've made that personal insinuation, Will, presumably to close down debate. You do personal stuff, don't you? Like the abuse you threw at Eller's family. I suggest you cut it out. No other poster on here does it.

    The relevance of the flasher was mostly how it was reported. This was a bloke in a dress exposing his genitals, yet it was reported as an offence by a woman. That is woke philosophy using the trans issue to encroach upon women's domaine.

    It started off in a well meaning way, Bob, aimed at avoiding racial and other discrimination. But it soon bastardised into intolerance by those espousing it, leading to a cancel culture where anyone disagreeing with woke philosophies would at best be ignored and no platformed, and at worst, would have calls to be sacked from their job or even be threatened with death. Will's personal abuse is classic woke.


    I see that Blair today advised the Labour Party to avoid woke if they are to have any chance of getting into government. He's right.

    That’s bang out of order, Wills. I’ve met Goldie and he’s a lovely lady.
