Indeed. They are going so far, so fast on the transgender matters (in particular) that “LGBTQIA2+ community” is increasingly divided over it. Not that it has really been a community since the 1990s anyway. Some of the most anti-“trans agenda” people I know are gay. They see activists as driven by politics rather than social justice, and among my serving colleagues they are amazed at the traction it gets with supposedly politically-neutral senior public servants. The opinion polls tell you how the public sees it…

Lossiemouth has started to fall apart. We have blue suits taking their own to one side to stop all banter, including football team affiliation. The multi fleet looked to be on their arse on Friday, and all of this before this report is released.
The P8 fleet is seemingly having a hug a hoodie moment.

Well, I know what an MGB GT is and the FSO Polonez was sometimes known as the KGB GT - but is LGB GT a nickname for the Porsche GCayman?

Some Luftwaffe mates told me that one of their number owned a Cayman, of which he was very proud. It was some weeks before he noticed that someone had carefully amended the 'C' to a 'G'...

Such a shame that the traditional Hawaiian rainbow flag was hi-jacked by this bunch.....

Left Bank,

You might want to put a bit of boot onto the pedal and balance yourself a bit....social media fact checkers are your source of authority on this......come on Man....(as our illustrious Leader loves to say) pull the other one!

The Chinese have more purpose, endeavour and confidence in their place in the world.
Napoleon was right. When they rise they will shake the world.
Better get used to it.
Well there were plenty of apologists for Stalin and Hitler pre-1939 so its not surprising that someone enjoying life in the West is prepared to write it off in favour of yet another brutal regime. Its irrelevant whether the people under 30 know much about WW2 or the Long March. The politicians who make the decisions on defense spending and foreign policy certainly do have that knowledge and recognise what is coming down the line. The CCP have already demonstrated their own lack of knowledge of Western political culture with their punitive and farcical trade bans. No one is in the business of "paying tribute" to Chinese warlords or prostrating their Western values in front of a Chinese Emperor.

BEagle,

Are you sure you're allowed to refer the LGBTIQ bunch as "this bunch" any longer?

If anyone doubts me on this, can I refer them to the BBC Radio 4 Today programme this morning from 0750-0800hrs, which can be replayed online. A complete and utter train wreck.

Why? I do not object and I must admit I think I may be a male Lesbian, because whenever I see a pair I am drawn to joining in...

Ooops..... am I allowed to say that, 🤪

I just amazes me the money that must be getting wasted through the Country to simply pander to this, do not get me wrong, the locking up and castrating people chemically or otherwise that used to happen in the past is totally and utterly wrong, anyone should be able to live their lives and enjoy their sexuality free from any persecution, but to be seen to be PC this Country seems to have a built in tendency to go totally OTT.

"but to be seen to be PC this Country seems to have a built in tendency to go totally OTT."

it's not only Diversity - its everything

Ask anyone how the UK used to gold-plate every Brussels directive - always far beyond what was originally intended. That's why there was often a perplexed reaction in the EU to some UK press stories - it was the British who extended the scope and the rules of their own volition........

I offer Nurse - males are still nurses, despite the overtly female assumption

Some years ago, friends of mine had their mortgage application repeatedly returned because the Building Society claimed they had filled in the form incorrectly - their mistake? Putting the husband's occupation down as Nurse and the wife's down as Surveyor even though that was exactly the case.

Quick question,

with it being 2021 and the dawning of a new age of diversity, could a male identity as a female during a fitness test, achieve a pass at the lower standard and realise they actually identify as a male after all?

This is the dilemma facing woman's sports. If a man identifies as a woman what is to stop them cleaning up in say woman's tennis then deciding afterwards they didn't read their inner self correctly. Same with woman's football (of whatever style you prefer). The muscle mass of a man is still going to hurt in any physical contact no matter what the brain thinks.

I will ask at my next fitness test in two years. Or maybe I will do the Rockport walk!
