New Minister for Children - Shortest Ministerial career in history or the "new normal"?

Candidates for UK Green Party leader tie themselves in nots answering question, “what is a woman”.


#136

What on earth has LGBT/woke/wingnut stuff got to do with a green agenda?
Should just rename themselves as the Official Monster Raving Loony Party and be done with it.


#137

You must be a NAZI if you have to ask that question! :ninja:

Because the new Greens are just as concerned with social issues as they are with the planet.

Here, we have old Green Eamonn Ryan v’s new Green Catherine Martin for the leadership of the party. She has said she’s more concerned with social justice issues as you cannot have a healthy planet without solving them first.
Some of the Green members in Ireland who regularly get air time in the media are not far away from communism!


#139

Not far???

The Greens are raving communists though some of them might not really know it, Eamonn Ryan on record stating the civil and public service is too small, not any particular part of it, just in general “It needs to be bigger, to meet the needs of the public”

Higher taxes: “On top of promoting a culture of reasonable pay for all, higher incomes should attract a higher rate of tax.”

I hope this isn’t a surprise to anyone here who voted for them last time around.

Not everything is lunacy, I am in favour of “Introduce a not-for-profit public banking model, along the lines of the Sparkassen banking system in Germany.” - if this was established pre celtic tiger we might have been able to tell Anglo to f*ck off.

Speaking of Germany and the Green Party, their nickname over there is Avocado - green on the outside but brown (ie Nazi, as in brownshirt) on the inside.

Just saying.


#141

Ireland needs to wakeup or else it’s a daily serving of Avocado toast with a side of soylent green, with no end in sight.

Say away. Say away. Say away

Greens down 3 to 5, just give the younger fascist element plenty of rope and they’ll do the necessary all by themselves.


#144

If an article begins with “We need to talk about” it has already lost my support.


#145

Would “We need to sit about talking…” be better?

Some of those who betrayed others – and in the camps that effectively condemned a person to death – did so through fear and desperation. Outside, many informers were likewise men and women seeking to save themselves, but others in every walk of life informed through jealousy, personal dislike or for career reasons. Plus ca change!

Where tremendous pressures exist to conform and toe the line, individuals succumb through fear. That pertains not only to totalitarian societies as we are aware in the midst of the current “cancel culture” where the hounds are unleashed on persons who have stepped out of line, forcing them in many instances to recant their “unwoke” heresy.

Walt Heyer who “de-transitioned”, in this video is to the point and serves as a living warning to society at large. To stop this insanity, as far as he is concerned, it is “child abuse”.

Hormones, surgery, regret:

I was a transgender woman for 8 years

My name is Walt Heyer and in April of 1983 I had gender reassignment surgery. At first I was giddy for the fresh start. But hormones and sex change genital surgery couldn’t solve the underlying issues driving my gender dysphoria.

I detransitioned more than 25 years ago. I learned the truth: Hormones and surgery may alter appearances, but nothing changes the immutable fact of your sex.

I met a wonderful woman who didn’t care about the changes to my body, and we’ve been married for over 20 years. Now we help others whose lives have been derailed by sex change.

I see one of the young GP members who joined in the mass rage-quit yesterday was elected to the committee of the ‘Queer Greens’ group of the party as a 16 year old schoolboy:

Did he know he was a narcissist before he “knew he was gay” ?

When it comes to youth politicians (including ex ones like Jordan Peterson) the sexuality they boast about is never as important in understanding them as the narcissism they don’t talk about.


#151

Ah here, as annoying as he is we should leave the kid alone-he’s still only 17. The point is how massively inappropriate it is for a legal child to be involved in this official group within a political party and that there exists within the Greens a mindset that not only saw nothing wrong with this but actively chose it. How many under 18s would one find at a Green Party event and are all relevant laws and guidelines being adhered to?

The Right Wing of the green party has won? Jesus wept some of them are of their rockers.

I’m a little disappointed Ms Martin didn’t win, because then the public would see the ultra left, authoritarian and petulance nature of so many greens. Many of those Twitter profiles have anti-fascist in their bios, but they are willing to leave the party or pull the government down if they don’t get their way. They have a lot more in common with fascists than that care to admit.

Its absolutely true that the trans online goons have been very effective at getting hundreds of sane people, who know that there are two genders, kicked off of social media. In fact the degenerate clowns behind repeal shield (remember that?) were instrumental in supressing the news of David Challenor’s conviction. Gangs that use mass block lists, mass reporting to suppress the news.
