Boris Johnson says he would not take the knee: 'I don't believe in gestures' (901)

Boris Johnson has said he would not take the knee, a symbol of support for Black Lives Matter protests, saying he does not believe in 'gestures.' Speaking on LBC on Friday morning, the prime minister

Boris Johnson says he would not take the knee: 'I don't believe in gestures'

You are a walking gesture

And your point of that comment is what Mr Lammy.

He shouldn’t even be commenting to such nonsense

I wouldn’t take the knee and that doesn’t make me a racist, just think it’s now become virtual signalling and a sign of solidarity with something that has nothing to do with race but is more an anarchic political ideal... Shame because black lives really do matter!!!

that's because he probably could rise with any dignity.

winematcher 🙈🙈 stay off the vino when thinking up articles to write.

“The fact that you as a white woman can enjoy a glass of moscato without a thought versus me as a black woman automatically being labelled ghetto'. Well.. I guess life can be tough. I'm so sorry you have to go through this pain

The 2020 season of the motorsport finally begins this coming weekend and the drivers will follow the lead of other sports by taking the knee in support of Black Lives Matter.

Every Formula One driver 'to take a knee' in support of BLM before season-opening Austrian Grand Prix

Hopefully the fans who pay £300+ for a ticket don’t respect it. Never could understand the hate towards him in the sport but can now. Hero to Zero

Sky plough lots of money into football & f1 now that's a coincidence 🤔

Cancelled my sky sports package

Get yourself down to the British Superbikes. There’ll be none of this nonsense there! 🏍 💨 💯

So when they get into the cars and sit down, will they be ‘taking the arse’?

Starkey quits university post over slavery comment (159)

Cambridge University accepts David Starkey's resignation, saying: 'We do not tolerate racism.'

Cambridge University accepts historian David Starkey's resignation over slavery comments

Starkey resigns over “Words Said” yet Cambridge_Uni WolfsonCollege ProfJaneClarke have not removed Fellowship fr HumanRights abuser CarrieLam - who ENCOURAGED PoliceBrutality in PoliceState HongKong - CambridgeDoAnything4CCPmoney ReasonedUK

Someone needs to study the psychology behind what compells people to say stupid things like this. It's like they can't help themselves. Its not even as if it is a novel idea. It is so cliche to be an angry white male racist but they seem tickled to share their thoughts.

He's needed to go for a while. Twisting data to support racism isn't being a good historian, to put it mildly.

The cull has started, who is next? you or me? ....according to those at Cambridge they only promote those that conform to their view. Take Starkey's view ..defund that University

Holocaust survivors recall how Nazi officers would trick children (110)

Holocaust survivors have recalled how Nazi officers would select which children to experiment on by asking which one of them wanted to visit their mothers in Netflix's 'Anne Frank - Parallel Stories'.

Holocaust survivors recall how Nazi officers would trick children



Give it up already, fellas.



As a doctor who survived the gas chambers in Auschwitz 88 times, I can attest to the fact that many people were tricked

At any point in the distant future can we expect to stop being barraged by holocaust movies/stories on the daily? There have been hundreds of genocides throughout human history, I hear of all others combined less than once a year.

Prince Andrew under pressure after arrest of Ghislaine Maxwell (101)

Royal ‘bewildered’ after US attorney asks him to come forward following arrest of his friend over alleged sex crimes

Prince Andrew under pressure after arrest of Ghislaine Maxwell

How can the British government stay silent on this and continue to fund someone associated to sex crimes and perverting the course of justice ?

These headlines cause such complex emotions. As a woman who was a teenager in the 1970s, I can say - other women my age will confirm - that almost no adult men considered teen girls off limits then as sexual targets. And we were KIDS.

Council says coronavirus 'waiting for you' at pubs (86)

Sheffield City Council apologises for the 'badly worded' tweet, which it has since deleted.

Sheffield Council apologises for tweet telling people coronavirus will be 'waiting for you' at pubs reopening this weekend

It’s true

aginnt damn fearmongering liars. the general public needs to free of these oppressive lockdown measures. the virus is not lethal enough to justify any of these measures.

In all fairness with the drinks flowing and inhibitions lowering pubs do have the potential to be super spreader central

Pubs can't open until 6am as lockdown eases (80)

No 10 says it is a 'sensible precaution' against midnight parties taking place across England.

Pubs in England will be allowed to open from 6am on Saturday as lockdown eased

Oh get it right for god's sake. Restrictions will be relaxed at 6am. Existing licensing hours still apply so if your license didn't allow you to open at 6am, it still doesn't. Most pubs will open at 11am or 12pm as usual.

Happy alcoholics national day. 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿

This will work out swell 😷

FFS “some” pubs were full of knobheads before so now they are just going to be worse.
