Amazing yes? Because the police normally allow the murderer to do the forensics. Fuck off.
The Palestinian Authority confirmed Thursday that it won't allow Israel to examine the bullet that killed Al Jazeera journalist Shireen Abu Akleh, even though it is one of the steps needed to determine culpability in her death. By @tovahlazaroff: jpost.com/breaking-news/arti…

You are completely entitled to your opinion Cat, and to put it fairly before the electorate. As you did in Edinburgh Western in 2016 when your candidacy collapsed the Labour vote from 21.4% to 9.4%. Nobody is trying to erase you. Feel free to carry on.
I am Scottish. I voted for Scotland remain in the UK in 2014. I would do so again. I am no less Scottish for doing so. I am no less ambitious for my country for doing so. This may be inconvenient to those who do not agree with me on independence but do not try and erase who I am.

The UK’s Fake Politics - I found this list on the facebook page of Anya Darr. The information in it checks out, and it is pretty startling. I was anxious to namecheck Anya Darr because she is being evicted from her little cottage while awaiting a craigmurray.org.uk/archives/…

The danger of the appearance of "authority" conveyed by the mainstream media is well illustrated by Neil Oliver. I used to get very frustrated when trying to convince people that his history programmes were regurgitated nonsense, ignoring decades of research.

People preferred to believe Oliver and his comforting and wildly inaccurate Establishment narratives, which "must be true it's on the BBC". I am so delighted he has now outed himself as an ignorant arse presenter on GB News. Please take it from me - his history is no better.

Off to Stenhousemuir now to give what I suppose must count as my first speech on Independence of the 2023 campaign. Will carry Julian and Stella with me in my heart, on this Julian's birthday! Please reply with your birthday wishes.

I try to steer clear of the science on covid, on the grounds that I have no expertise and nothing useful to add. But this took me aback. Prof Sachs is the very definition of an internationally respected mainstream figure. He also taught me intensive economics in the FCO.
Wow😯Prof. Jeffrey Sachs: "I chaired the commission for the Lancet for 2 years on Covid. I'm pretty convinced it came out of a US lab of biotechnology [...] We don't know for sure but there is enough evidence. [However] it's not being investigated, not in the US, not anywhere."

I stopped watching the rugby after the first half, because I thought the ridiculously unfair Swain sending off had spoiled the game, and the second half would only make me angry. Trying to work out where I can watch the second half now! Sounds glorious. #AusvsEng

I have watched this several times, and what strikes me is that people are so busy triumphing that Peterson contradicts his general opposition to fairness of outcome, that they miss the much bigger point that his argument treats women as a commodity.
Replying to @zei_squirrel
jordan peterson unfolds his deranged theory of inceldom, whereby "chads" get all the women and this is horrific for society so has to be changed. joe rogan points out this contradicts his rage-whining about "equality of outcome" being stalinism, and peterson is literally stunned

Landlords can increase rent by 15% but renters can’t ask for 15% pay rises. Tickets can go up by inflation, but if rail workers ask for the same with wages they’re being ridiculous. Everything can go up: prices, asset inflation, profit, rents - but not wages. See how it works?

The Catholic Orangemen of Togo is the book I am proud of. It will make you both laugh and cry. It is written warts and all and in parts with self-loathing. I guarantee you will know far more about Africa at the end of it. Free download tenpercent.files.wordpress.c…

Darren, if at the last four UK General Elections, every single person who voted SNP had voted Labour, we would still have had 12 years of Tory government. Plus the English working class has now been entirely betrayed by Starmer and the neo-liberal Labour leadership.

Reverse question; would the English working class be justified in expecting the Scottish working class to suffer alongside them, when Scots can break free? Is victory of one group of workers not a victory for all? The moral imperative is to destroy the British Imperialist state

The United States has dropped more than 337,000 bombs and missiles on other countries over the past 20 years or 46 strikes per day. China has not bombed a single country over the same period. The U.S. calling China "imperialist" or "aggressive" is pure projection.
