What a surprise, of all the valid criticism in that meeting, hers is the most vapid.
You will not be punished for your anger, you will be punished by your anger.
We ourselves are responsible for our own happiness and misery. We create our own Heaven. We create our own Hell. We are the architects of our own fate.
Student says " I am very discouraged. What should I do?" Master says, "encourage others."
We are what we think. All that we are arises with our thoughts. With our thoughts, we make the world.
It takes a wise man to learn from his mistakes, but an even wiser man to learn from others.
This is what should be done. By one who is skilled in goodness, and who knows the path of peace: Let them be able and upright, straightforward and gentle in speech. Humble and not conceited, contented and easily satisfied. Unburdened with duties and frugal in their ways. Peaceful and calm, and wise and skillful, not proud and demanding in nature. Let them not do the slightest thing that the wise would later reprove.

They just sat and argued for 3 hours about how much should be spent on ‘no deal’ preparations.

Tories have played a blinder over this BBC stuff I must say. Played their own base and the fewming Brexiteers perfectly, long game thinking so rare to see these days. Got to be their plan for the socialist NHS post Brexit.

Is he even campaigning? If he is then his campaign is as anonymous as May's election campaign.

He's such a liability on camera, he will just harm his own campaign when under any real scrutiny. Rather shrewd move from his team :lol: He won't get away with acting the clown as PM

He can’t lose. The media class fawn over ‘Boris’ and his indiscretions are just foibles after all he loves England and acceptable types of English people and wants to make us great again.

If it wasn’t for those dastardly (insert non-over 45 white anglophone AB private sector demographic here) we’d still be great.

In other news it’s mad Kate Hoey is basically RTG.

"Cannit wait man, we're gonna batter them, hope it's 4 or 5 nil, fancy such and such for a hat trick, we're going got Europe, they're a yo-yo team" Then five minutes into the game "s***, why haven't we scored? They've had a shot! Why aren't we all over them? How come there are two teams in the game? f***, what if we don't win? f***s SAKE CLEAR IT SHOOT TACKLE HIM BOO! What if we lose, PANIC PANIC BRUCE MAN WHAT ARE YOU DOING WHY DID HE MISS THAT SHOT, IS HE A MAG?! IT'S BECAUSE BRUCE IS A MAG! f*** OFF STEWARD ARE YOU A f***ing MAG? BET ALL THESE COPPERS ARE MAGS, AND THE MEDIA! THE REF'S A f***ing MAG! AM I A MAG?! Wait, blacked out for a second there. Ah, f***, we've lost again."

Made the BBC fund over 75's not paying the license fee for a couple years knowing it was unsustainable. Now that initial period is over they're not funding it anymore unless your'e on pension credit IIRC.

Furious backlash by right wing press and other media outlets ensues.

Loads of morons going on about denying our "veterans" the free TV license, despite having to currently be around 91 to have been old enough to have fought in the war.

Liking this bloke a bit recently. There was a clip of him pretty much nailing Brexit floating about on Twitter over the weekend.

Still think there’s a twist in this somewhere.

Boris can’t keep going until 22 July without saying/doing something stupid.

Aye, at this stage everyone knows exactly what he is. The fact they're all voting for him anyway is a little depressing, but when you take a look at the alternatives there's not much hope to be found.

Bar having a pop at Brexit, Tories or the white English he can pretty much say what he wants providing it's legal and within party rules. He'll be keen to explore this avenue to get Don Trump on board once he wins too.

Seen a petition being shared on Facebook (:anguish:) this morning, demanding the TV license be free for everyone.

Abolish the BBC television license.
The quality of BBC programmes do not reflect the price of the TV license. It is far too expensive for the majority of people and should be abolished.

Think this argument will work in John Lewis later?

Discrediting, ramping up hatred and subtly inciting the threat of extreme violence against certain demographics, minorities, professions, employees of certain companies is very much part of the game under the guise of free speech / anti PC culture as per Don Trump. Expect this to increase.
