CJ, therein lies the trouble with communication, the impression that it has taken place.

I make a reasonable effort to write what I mean, no more, no less. It makes reasoned discussion (argument?) possible and is the only route to understanding. Ascribing meanings to posts which are not in the original make the process totally pointless. I write what I mean, mean what I write and if you feel that there is some subliminal message in there, forget it - and try someone else!

It's pretty hard to try and put some other meaning on much of what you have written, though, especially when it's near-impossible to differentiate between content that you have written and that which has been quoted from the contributions of others. There is a pretty good quote feature here, and that not only makes it clear that a section has been quoted, but also references the author of the post that the quote has been taken from, together with the actual post reference number (hover over the arrow to the right of the author's name).

VP - Thank you for the (unfortunately) superfluous assistance in navigating the forum. I note the tendency of some to use the 'quote' function and, in so doing, unnecessarily clutter up a large area of the page. Very few contributions (including my own) have sufficient value to require 'the full flavour' so to speak. If, and it's a big IF, there is the occasional nugget or controversial content, I concentrate on that. It makes 'economical' sense to me - others may feel 'bigger is better'.
Apparently it has escaped your notice that I, quite often, use colour differentiation to identify quotes - usually in blue but with red as an option for emphasis. It suits me, irritates others and, it seems, is unnoticed by some ...strange

Content can be edited and highlighted within quotes. Also, the use of pale blue is less than ideal for those with less than perfect colour perception, as the contrast is particularly poor on anything other than a bright white background. I doubt that I'm alone in finding some of your posts pretty challenging to comprehend, largely because of text formatting choices.

THROWBACK: LAST WEEK’S GLASGOW “ALL COPS ARE BASTARDS” PROTESTSix days ago, amid the Black Lives Matter protests, Glasgow leftists were marching down the streets chanting “ACAB: All Cops Are Bastards”. While their free speech was being enforced by the police of course…

Today, a Glasgow police officer has been stabbed and seriously injured in the same area, trying to save scots from a crazed knife attacker who has murdered three and now lies dead. Guido wonders whether last week’s protesters will have any pause for thought after today’s events…

Why don't you, just for once, tell us what YOU think instead of constantly telling us what Guido wonders?

More nonsense.

I suppose that you soon won't be able to impersonate different accents either.

And how are they going to voice the animals?

Acting definition - the art or occupation of performing fictional roles in plays, films, or television.

Flattering as it may be to feel that my contributions should be available to all, realistically, a large proportion of the forum will either ignore them or couldn't care less.
The nature of this, like other fora, is to offer a 'platform', once the province of Speaker's Corner. This version is rapid, convenient and simple and just as totally ineffective as a means of change. I appreciate that and I would hope that others would also. The availabilty , therefore, of my, or other's contributions I see in that light, so I feel no great urge to modify my 'style'.

White Family Guy actor Mike Henry quits as voice of black character Cleveland Brown after 20 years. So when is Brian going to be a dog.

Clearly the illegal immigrant, who stabbed other illegal immigrants, AKA asylum sneakers, and a policeman at the Glasgow hotel, he was not paying for, had not heard of BLM. The Telegraph reported he was not happy at the quality of the food he was being served. I assume the hotel was not 5 star, had no Michelin rating, and didn’t have MTV but it did have free WiFi and a gym. Such a disappointment for him and to cap it all he had been sent to Glasgow.

Here is the plush hotel https://www.radissonhotels.com/en-us/hotels/park-inn-glasgow-city-centre?cid=a:se+b:gmb+c:emea+i:local+eii+d:ukirwe+h:GLAPD

so you read the Telegraph article and decided to replace the words asylum seeker with illegal immigrant. Do you know the difference?

The problem is that when you pack Glasgow with u/t SNP voters you are bound to have trouble.

Well, if the comments from his friends at the hotel are to be correct, Badradeen traveled to the UK from France in the back of a lorry. As far as the law is concerned, that makes him an illegal immigrant as he travelled here illegally and without the correct paperwork.
He could easily have applied for asylum in France before hiding away in the back of a lorry to gain entry into the UK but he chose not to.

My understanding is that, once he applied for asylum, he becomes an asylum seeker. Had he not applied, or should his application had been refused, then he would have been an illegal immigrant.

The reality is he was a murderous scum bag and thankfully he’s not our problem anymore.

Or he was someone with serious mental problems, that were obvious before the incident, and these poor people were unfortunately present when he finally went over the edge. Why do you say he was a scum bag? Did you know him?

Nope. Living in Sudan with all its troubles, making the decision to endure hardship by travelling to the UK for a better life. All great. Right up until the point where he stabbed 6 people. Then he became a murderous scumbag.

Our local Sudanese lads are a source of troubles belying their population percentage. All mentally deranged, or what other reason could be given? Perhaps they just like violence and/or knives.
