Finally we come to the practical legacy of the Brits "liberating" Eastern Europe from the clutches of communism.
Did we not witness perhaps the greatest demographic decline of all time ?
Again people were given theoretical freedom and not practical freedom ( credit was subtracted from the population )
Iraq and Libya ....let's not even go there .
If Hagger was offering his style of freedom would you buy it ?

Hagger fights for the false freedom of a universal bill of rights ( can Catholics apply ...ehhh..ehh. soon but not yet )
but not of course the functional freedom of free credit
He blames nation states for catastrophic war but nation states did not clash during the Great War .
Did Nansens Norway get involved ?
No it was a clash of financial Empires and not nations.
I agree with him that communism is hyper tyrannical but only because it is the most extreme form of hyper capitalism .
Indeed we can see how friendly he was with the forces of monopoly capitalism during his career ( The BoE and Jap central bank phonecall featured in the video , they were so chummy - touching really ..

Of course he hopes and aims for happy clappy world government where people and nations give up their arms to......ehhhh....ehhh...let's not dwell on the details ...

Typical British Council career trajectory and world view .
More then a bit sanitized but very revealing.

@AK

"Drag"?

Nope, encouraging you to stop avoiding Left wrongs. Your reply is as weaselly as Bayoumi's word salad in today's Groan

Trudeau has a weird history of blackface - not brownface - Canada's Rachel Dolezal?

Identity politics eats its own again. Glorious.

.

Canadian racism was non-existent to low key

Seems not

Defending the indefensible is not a good tactic.

Justin Trudeau "apologizing because he got caught" - in Blackface as a 29 year old teacher


Trudeau euphemisms etc - is he lying?

.
Personally, I don't care: fancy dress - anything goes. However, I'm not a woke PC SJW - Trudeau is and should die by his woke sword

Some types, legal in the USA, like automatics, are totally banned in Canada.

Automatics totally banned in Canada? What do military use?

Automatics are banned for civilian use (with exceptions) in USA too; hence Obama legalising the "bump stop" for shooting "the deplorables"

.
Meanwhile

Trudeau's Liberals break election laws with "timely" anti-racism announcement

@Charly

Pcar, I must have missed the bit where AK became responsible for Trudeau's behaviour.

A humorous jibe at how AK goes silent when BBC, Left, SJW etc caught out - bias by omission


@Mark Hodgson Sep 21, 2019 at 7:49 AM

John Humphrys lambasts the corporation's liberal bias

Hmm, who said that before? Almost all ex BBC Journos, Directors etc

I'd respect them if they said "I fought hard to make BBC see this and change, but they wouldn't thus I resigned"

Instead Humphrys: "I could see bias, but kept my head down to enrich myself at taxpayer expense and now I'm a multi-millionaire"

Good work. Please post all replies

AK:

Agree on the blackface == racism question. Racism isn't noticing a difference, it is using that difference to mark one group as inferior to another. There should be no more offence in referring to someone's skin colour than to their hair colour.

You might find this story interesting. It was a few years ago. I think the indignation would be considerably worse today.

AK, Thanks for that response. It now makes sense. If only the USA would embrace a similar approach.

Sep 21, 2019 at 7:25 PM | Unregistered CommenterRoss Lea

Ross the main difference concerns handguns. These can only be used (except by authorized police) for competition and are strictly controlled. One of my colleagues did sports shooting but could only transport his gun locked in the boot of his car and had to register his route with the police. Rifles and air rifles are more tolerantly treated and I used them for protection against bears in northern Saskatchewan and the Rocky Mountains.
So guns are not common in urban areas and illegal possession of them is very heavily penalized. Some types, legal in the USA, like automatics, are totally banned in Canada. So the number of guns is much lower in Canada and penalties for having them are much stiffer.
