f*** off you t***s, some of the f***ing pathetic and disgraceful assumptions here are nothing more than ignorant conjectures! [emoji38] I never said they don't deserve to be rehoused, I never said the real victims were the occupants of the luxury flats, I never said poor people don't work hard. f*** off with your pathetic assumptions you c***s, I was simply seeing it from the other side.

Aye, and the other side is f***ing abhorrent. It's not like we can't see their argument, it's that we can see their argument and think it's f***ing horrible. Those things that you said that you're not saying, that's fair enough, but they automatically come with the argument imo, they come as part and parcel of it. For example, you can't really say 'what about their property being damaged?' without there being the insinuation of it being potentially damaged by the exact people from the tower, and you can't really say 'but they've worked hard' without there being an insinuation that hard work is consigned to the rich.

When the starting argument is 'these people are homeless, and have lost their friends, children, parents, and all of their worldy possessions because their safety was put at risk and corners were cut when cosmetic improvements were made to their homes, mainly for the benefit of surrounding rich people and their property values.' you're not going to have many moral arguments against these people now being rehoused ANYWHERE, but you're definitely not going to have a leg to stand on when you essentially counter it, even as a devil's advocate, with 'I'm just seeing it from those rich folk's perspectives' which is essentially the line of thinking that provoked this disaster.


I've only read up to this point, but it occurs to me that the elephant in the room here is that we live in a society in which it's taken for granted by everyone that property prices will be adversely affected by an influx of poor people. Why? Why is that the case? The properties will be exactly the same, they will just be a bit closer to some poor people, why does that make them worth less money? It's absolute madness.

Because they've all got ASBOs, keep up.

These people, refusing to welcome others into their community are demonstrating the very worst in anti-social behaviour.

Morrisons have put an advert on Facebook telling Muslims that they have everything they need to celebrate Eid. The predictable kicking off in the comments, accusing Morrisons of not advertising Christmas. :lol:

:facepalm:

I liked this comment

This. If the takeover happens, we suddenly become an incredibly attractive prospect. Fingers crossed

Leavers don't like it when the other side get dodgy backers it seems.

Only remainers are allowed to point out the dodginess of leavers backers. It seems.
Best part of the shadowy leave backers for me is that many of them, if not all, will probably owe a significant part of their wealth to trade in the EU yet their hate for foreigners is so strong they're intent on denying anyone else the opportunities they themselves had.

"Many, if not all".

The textbook way to disguise a sweeping statement.

Royal Blood were f***ing amazing too. First I've heard of them, that bass player gets a unique sound from his instrument and equipment, like a grungy Peter Hook.
I saw them the other day at the Eden Project, they we're f***ing excellent. Out of the black was probably the best song ive seen live.
