  1. Given how many typo's I make in virtually every single post, that could well be me 😛
  2. I've re-read the posts, as far as I can tell; 1. You posted a list of male suicide stats in relation to mens health. 2. Seeing as white privilege has recently been discussed in this thread I made an albeit crass joke about white privilege. 3. You make the point that white blokes kill themselves in greater number in th UK because they are the most populus. 4. I make several posts pointing out that working class men being the most likely group to commit suicide. 5. You try to keep the argument a broad white vs non-white. 6. I argue that doesn't take all the data into account. I don't think that a strawman argument, I think thats providing additional information. A bit like the grooming gang argument that most child abuse is done by whites - obviously because we live in a predominently white country. It doesn't mean that additional factors don't come into play and limiting the argument to 'whites do it more' is only looking at half the picture. The Samaritans don't just take a simple overview; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Md5y4YqdLN8&feature=emb_logo https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UEG7mKfeSAA&feature=emb_logo
  3. Yay, the petty 'insults' have started. This argument; If you just look at a simple overview of the data more white blokes commit suicide than non-white. Dig a little deeper however and men commit suicide in greater numbers than women and the working class in greater numbers than the middle class. To blame the statistic on the imbalance of white/non-white is to simplistic an approach.
  4. He posted a number of male suicide stats in relation to incorrectly saying that Laurence Fox dumped his girlfriend because she liked a Gilette advert about mens mental health - it was the widely ridiculed toxic masculinity advert. Seeing as we've recently been talking about white privilege in this thread I made the connection with the demograph mostly likely to commit suicide - the white working class male. Hardly a leap in this thread.
  5. Men commit suicide more than women. Working class commit suicide more than middle class. If you simply limit the argument to a male white vs non-white suicide that ignores the broader picture.
  6. We will have after we countersue the ELF 😛
  7. Are there 3:1 more men than women?
  8. Not quite as simplistic as the Daily Mail are making out. Full interview below; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=maSFYaM_14s And he apparently dumped his girlfriend over the woke toxic masculinity Gilette advert, not a mens mental health video - that despite them resetting the thumbs down on youtube still has over 1.5m 😛 https://metro.co.uk/2020/01/19/laurence-fox-dumped-woke-girlfriend-supporting-gillette-ad-finds-support-piers-morgan-12083339/ Ah, male suicide data. Its highest amongst the working class white man. Must be overburdened with all that white privilege.
  9. Sad to see George go, I joined this forum during the transfer saga (prior to that I was a lurker!) Injuries obviously decimated his time (and potential) with us and like others, firmly believe he would have gone on to better things. Here's hoping he gets a decent run of games at Oxford, stays injury free and recaptures some of his talent - the guys deserves a break (sorry, bad pun!)
  10. Whilst I'm not to keen on unelected people having power in our lives, I'd see it as a symbolic move and an initial commitment to 'do better'. In itself, the move would be a first tentative step, the time to judge any actual progress will be in 5 years.
  11. Or perhaps its a chance to prove to northern voters that this government really does want to change the mistakes of the past and listen to people from outside the elitist metropolitan bubble, something that lefties still don't get. Time will tell. https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2020/jan/19/house-of-lords-may-move-out-of-london-to-reconnect-with-public
  12. If we don't sign someone soon I'm gonna get the hump.
  13. Furthermore and on the subject of positive discrimination didn't Jess Philips the other day urge men to 'pass th mic' re. the Labour leadership contest? https://news.sky.com/story/jess-phillips-urges-men-to-pass-the-mic-on-labour-leadership-11912423 You are charged with leading the opposition for the next few years, to rein in the Tories and prepare to stand for government at the next election. I don't want a woman because 'diversity' I want the absolute best person for the job, literally nothing else matters.
  14. No, I've put my argument forwards several times in the past few posts. The whole furore surrounding 'white privilege' is another example of identity politics and virtue signalling - just another well meaning idea that has been co-opted by the far-left. Does that mean I don't think racism etc exists? No, of course it doesn't. But I do believe its doing far more harm than good and until lefties break out from their oppression olympics social media bubble they will never win an election ever again - which was my 'gift to the Tories' main point.
  15. The problem with the whole argument however is that it has been co-opted by the left and presented in a way to silence people based on immutable characteristics. https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2020/jan/05/bursaries-might-help-but-not-if-they-label-poor-boys-white-working-class What I think of white privilege is neither here nor there, I just observe the whole identity politics circus with scepticism and look at the real world damage its doing.
