Must be a modern day miracle that Alesha Dixon won in back in 2007 in that case.

This is very 'Guardian'

https://www.theguardian.com/music/2017/ ... n#comments

"If men can talk openly about sex what can't women?" - in my experience of speaking to girlfriends and girl friends they al talk extensively and in detail about sex. Far more than lads do in most cases. We might admit to banging a chick and saying what he tits are like but the ladies go into all sorts of sordid details about the act.

Also, women not talking about sex in music? Lol, do they talk about anything else?

Afua Hirsch is without a shadow of doubt one of the worst people in Britain. She is an out and out hardcore racist, who sees it everywhere, and is determined to bring chaos to the UK in its name. This is the woman who wanted Nelson's statue removed from Trafalgar Square.

She is not thick and crazy at all like we are used to from the likes of Yasmin Alibi-Brown. She is very sober and cogent and smart and capable.

A wicked person.

IIRC, she was formerly the Graun West Africa correspondent who penned a glowing article espousing the delights of Ghana and how much she was looking forward to going ''home'' - despite never having lived there - away from the nasty, racist West. I think she lasted 2 years before returning to London...

She's half Ghanaian and half Jewish (by way of Norway) with an Oxford education, and writes for the Guardian.

Beelzebub himself could not have concocted such a brew of trouble.

We examined Assange for 20 hours, and concluded he had no access to healthcare.

My sister used to be a nurse in Pentonville Prison, so I know they're lying.

that link about the Dunstable sex club thing, had this quote about her 'strikingly attractive, black female single friend, who couldn't find a partner'

"The problem was, she never received any expressions of interest from the single white men she knew" - maybe it was just a simple 'nobody fancied you' and not some kind of evil race plot. awfully bad article, from an awful media source that is the Guardian.

Yep, she could be very fit - doesn’t alter the fact that although none of her white mates tried it on with her, does not directly link to any kind of racist trend or conclusions this so called author has arrived at.
Maybe her pal has very bad breath and drove the honkies away ?

Well no, the chances are that if she's hanging around with the author she's a rancid harridan who's no fun to be around.

Men are essentially sluts, if she was actually fit and not an absolute nutter, they would be lined to have a go

I assume she has a vested interest in ongoing racism. If it were to entirely disappear, she would little to talk about. Although even then she would probably bang on about colonialism.

She's a professional race hustler, of the sort that has been a nightmare in America for decades. A shockingly wicked woman.

I suspect she is only getting started.

She has her attention fixed on that which interests her the most. I dare say that there is much she does not notice at all because she is looking elsewhere.

https://www.theguardian.com/lifeandstyl ... sexual-man

An insight in to the life of a guardian reader.

This paragraph in particular is spectacular:
Quote:
I have created a masturbation station equipped with everything I need, including an overstuffed comfy chair, a jar of Albolene, sex toys, a computer and a webcam. While I enjoy pornography, over the past 10 years, I have recorded videos of myself masturbating that span more than five hours. I am my own porn. I like the sound of my moans; I loop five clips of myself orgasming at the same time so the sounds meld into an echoic symphony of pleasure. It’s a multisensory, self-love experience.

Comments might be merged with the “Mark from Windows” thread.

Quote:
It’s also good at getting rid of nuisance phone calls. I was called by someone who said they could help me with my PPI claim. I kindly told them that I was furiously masturbating at present and could they ring back in an hour or so. They hung up.

Strangely enough they never did call me back.

Funnily enough I find PPI claim calls curiously arousing, so I keep them on the line until I have finished my business

The Times wheeled out the irascible Michael Henderson to review it. I don't have it from behind the paywall, but have this screen shot. He goes to town.

He's right that it doesn't seem she will ever be happy. Even if Nelson's Column was taken down, and a statue of Rhodes removed, there'll always be something else that offends and upsets her.

This may not be peak Guardian, but amusing none the less

https://www.theguardian.com/money/2018/jan/29/can-you-really-save-for-a-deposit-by-ditching-coffee-and-avocado-toast-i-tried-to-find-out

Guardian Journalist tries to prove its impossible for millennials to save for a house deposit by cutting out coffees and avocado toast, only to be told by money expert

"it would be “very possible” for me to save from £400 to as much as £700 of my disposable income each month by cutting back on coffees, lunches out, rounds at the pub and holidays"

Fûcking hell

Quote:
I am left with a bit over £1,000 each month. Of that, I save about £100 every month.


If I had that much left over at the end of the month I might try some of these drugs and prostitutes I keep hearing so much about.

Guardian couldn’t be more out of touch with reality, or more in love with the idea that anything outside London is beneath them. Get the guardian office cleaners in and ask them how easy it would be to save for house on their wages instead.

That can't be serious right?

I'd be amazed if I managed to keep £1,000 a month spare. :uhoh: . I'd also be quite chuffed but that expectation to earn SO much would mean even if they earnt more, they'd still spend it and moan.

Professional money-squanderers. :frown:

This may not be peak Guardian, but amusing none the less

https://www.theguardian.com/money/2018/jan/29/can-you-really-save-for-a-deposit-by-ditching-coffee-and-avocado-toast-i-tried-to-find-out

Guardian Journalist tries to prove its impossible for millennials to save for a house deposit by cutting out coffees and avocado toast, only to be told by money expert

"it would be “very possible” for me to save from £400 to as much as £700 of my disposable income each month by cutting back on coffees, lunches out, rounds at the pub and holidays"


When did it become so radical to pull your head in and save hard (ie stop spend money on luxuries) when you decide to get that deposit for a property (the avocado toast thing was always a metaphor)

Straight from the Guardian words make mean anything school of columnism we have Ben Okri.

I especially like this little gem

Quote:
To me, being a citizen is a high political and spiritual responsibility. It means holding one’s nation to the highest ethical and moral standards. It also means being constantly vigilant on freedom, liberty and the moral rights of ourselves and our fellow citizens, no matter who they might be; and the upholding of our neighbours’ rights, even if we disagree with them, or if their faith or political persuasion is different from ours. It is a commitment of our souls to the enrichment of the human race. True citizenship therefore transcends nations. Because one is, first of all, a citizen of the world.


Summarising it seems that a citizen is anyone in the world who agrees with him.
