If Scottish Devo-Max happens, the English win

– and if Scotland vote Yes to independence on Thursday, we still win.

I love these games.


To be clear, this is not what will happen after independence, it is what will happen if Scotland decides to stay as part of Britain. Whatever the outcome of the referendum therefore, Westminster MPs will no longer be allowed to legislate on these key policy areas in Scotland. How then can Scottish MPs at Westminster expect to be able to continue to vote on legislation which now affects England alone, and not their own constituencies? Why should a Scottish MP be allowed a say on an English law but not vice versa?

The answer, of course, is that in all rationality they cannot. That is the conclusion of Conservative MP John Redwood, who says 100 MPs back his proposal to allow the Westminster parliament to double as an English parliament when voting on matters that only affect England. It would then revert to a British parliament when discussing matters relevant to the entire union. Scottish MPs would be allowed to vote on the latter, but not the former.

…Seismic upheaval for the way English politics works is now guaranteed after Thursday’s referendum. A Yes vote means complete de facto devolution forced upon England. A No vote means England would surely have to answer the West Lothian question [my link] once and for all, finally preventing Scottish MPs from voting on legislation they have no mandate to have a say on. For English democracy, this is surely a good thing.

I love it when a plan backfires on the stupid, karmic law, whatever you wish to declare it, I love it!

Cosmopolitan: Is your bra racist?

In full;

If you are wearing a nude bra, you are supporting racism, say editors at the University of Oklahoma newspaper. The colour “nude”, they argue, is not a reflection of what everyone looks like nude, which makes the term an example of microaggression toward darker-skinned women.

By the same logic, most concealers and Band-Aids are also subtle forms of racism, argue the editors. The point of their argument is to “encourage all of our readers to think critically about the small instances of racial bias they encounter each and every day.”

Yes. My bras are racist because I do not have an orange tan, no one has, and there are no paler shades. Pure as the driven snow white does not count, as I have a pulse. Does a lipstick labelled ‘orgasm’ discriminate against women who cannot? Then again, is a red bra a ‘microaggression’ to those with rosacea? Is a white woman wearing a black bra appropriating black culture? Dark chocolate? What about corsets? If a black woman wears a white corset, is she racist? Appropriating European culture?

Seriously, these people are trolls.


The demographics of UK race replacement


There are now more Muslim children than Christian children growing up several British towns and cities. Figures from the 2011 census show that in places such as Birmingham, Bradford and Leicester, a child is more likely to be raised in Islam than Christianity as Britain’s demographics radically change.

…A total of 27.9 million people described themselves as Christian, compared to 1.8 million Muslims, who make up the second-largest faith. 

…However, analysts are now beginning to warn that the growing number people following non-traditional faiths could lead to segregated and divided communities.

Code for slaughter. Social unrest.

“What we are seeing are several trends running together. There is a long-term decline in support for the established religions, notably Christianity; continuing immigration from the Asian sub-continent; and higher fertility among the Muslim population, which has a considerably lower age profile.

Two of those can be easily solved with policy changes.
And making it clear there is no such thing as a “right” to live in London. Make enough money yourself to afford it, or get out. Take Boris with you.

“There is also deepening segregation exacerbated by the loss of white population from cities and more intensive concentration of black and minority ethnic groups as a result of replacement. This is the real problem, as residential segregation is generally compounded by school and social segregation.

Take a walk in East London at 2am. See how rich and vibrant it feels. How much better than previous decades, when bobbies weren’t afraid to walk the beat.

“Nothing surprises me about the pace of demographic change. What does surprise me is that the Government has no policy to combat segregation because it inevitably reduces understanding and tolerance on both sides of the divide.”

You mean multiculturalism destroys its host?!

Article: #Gamergate is making progress, do not stop


…It was time to do away with all that “fun” people were having, said these grievance-mongering killjoy arrivistes, and start taking seriously the overwhelmingly clear moral obligation to include at least six minorities, four gay dudes and a paraplegic illegal immigrant lesbian in every major video game release.

I’m exaggerating, obviously. But not by much: these bizarre campaigners, deploying a series of disingenuous and morally questionable tactics, such as goading people into making unpleasant remarks and then using those statements to publicly beg for sympathy and cash, have made gamers’ lives a misery these last few years.

And yet, to the confusion of the troublemakers, barking orders and concocting bogus allegations of misogyny have not yielded results. Nor have the distraction tactics deployed by journalists sympathetic to the social justice warriors’ causes, designed to draw attention away from those journalists’ own moral failings — shortcomings which have been known about for a long time, but which are only now being called out by readers en masse, because industry sites such as Kotaku and Polygon have chosen rather than to defend their industries to attack their readers.

To the feminist campaigners trying to ruin video games for everyone and a press that refuses to reform itself despite clear evidence of professional failure, gamers have responded with all the heroic defiance of Will Smith delivering a nuke into the mothership — and with just as much style. Through a series of fundraisers and lobbying efforts, as well as polite but firm advocacy on Twitter, they have begun to formulate a coherent intellectual and activist response to those who mystifyingly claim that their games and their culture are both somehow ugly, bigoted and evil….

Does intra-racial bias on dating websites amount to racism?

A study in clickbait, this journalist hardly deserves the title but this mirrors a previous article from Slate so I’m posting it as part of a theme. Note the theme of control? Prove you aren’t X by Y? Do what we want or we’ll call you names? The tactics of children.


Replies for online dating? That is polite. Very polite.

A new study by OKCupid suggests that such behaviour is more prevelant than ever. The website looked at research from five years ago – which showed most people prefer to date within their own race – and compared it to current data. It found that racial bias has increased.

So it’s natural, you’re arguing against nature.
I scoffed at the idea of an Indian, whose own race has an infamous caste inter-cousin marriage system, has the temerity to be infuriated by the notion of racial preference when it comes to one’s own children (and that’s where the money really is on these stories). She (sorry, her ‘friend’) thinks she is entitled to a white man. Why? Am I entitled to early 90s Brad Pitt? I bet her ‘friend’ has an “I deserve…” list, because men are like slaves you can just pick them up like handbags, completely to your specifications, they have no say in the matter whatsoever.

As an aside, if we could eliminate romantic biases, Brave New World’s “everybody belongs to everyone else” would apply and there would be no such crime as rape. Use that one against a feminist. It would apply to all humans, regardless of sexuality and age…

To quote a few choice comments;

You ask: “Why does racial bias come into dating?”
I ask: “Why does height bias come into dating?”

I think that sums it up for us guys. Everyone have preferences. Get over it.


Mixed race relationships are uncommon. There’s actual data on this subject; the author of this piece just clearly can’t be arsed looking into. It’s just a bunch of vapid anecdotes.


Cultural Marxism is a mental illness. When it comes to dating everybody is different, get over it. Extremist takes on equality are as frightening as they are deranged.


There was a programme on Channel 4 some years ago – ‘I won’t Marry White’. Asians in England who were looking for an Asian partners. There seems to be a double standard when it comes to what is seen as racist.


I think he’s homophobic as he’s only interested in chicks.


Why on earth should we be obliged to have a discussion on this issue. Surely personal relations are as personal as you can get – that is “personal” not the business of the State? The fact that the State, through quite disproportionate pressure from the “liberal left” has forced the imposition of Political correct legislation on us in so many areas, does not mean that they should be allowed to trespass further.

It is about time that legislation reflected the obligations of the majority, not the entitlements of minorities.

Article: 10 lessons for the corrupt ‘journalists’ in #gamergate


My shorter version;
#10 Anyone who knows what a 4chan is doesn’t buy a 4chan troll’s conveniently leaked and edited chatlogs.
#9 Calling anyone who disagrees with you a misogynist no longer works.
#8 No one gives a shit about pseudonym Zoe Quinn anymore, that was 2 weeks ago.
#7 #NotYourShield is being ignored by the very people who need to hear it.
#6 Blocking is not suitable professional retort from a journalist on their own ethics.
#5 Attacking gamers who pay you is not a wise career move.
#4 This is not going away, when you ban discussion, the Streisand Effect applies.
#3 This is a big issue if you bother to look into it, awards may have been rigged.
#2 These ‘bad’ people are actually doing the charity work and funding it.
#1 It’s being dragged into mainstream attention, and these ‘bloggers’ when questioned / ‘journalists’ when they want free stuff are being held accountable. We have won. These places are dead to the core demo, real gamers no longer trust them.

Polygon has also lost an advertiser as #GamerGate advocates emailed them with their concerns.

The most important thing to remember from all this is that gaming journalists need gamers, but gamers certainly don’t need them.


Zoe Quinn, 4chan user, “finds” 4chan chatlogs saying she was set up

Did the entirety of 4chan, an anonymous website, where she has posted about herself, also sleep with her married boss for positive promotion of her subpar ‘work’?

But this isn’t about her. Primer: http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Hollywood/2014/09/09/GamerGate-Why-Gaming-Journalists-Keep-Dragging-Zoe-Quinns-Sex-Life-into-the-Spotlight
She’s trying to get attention back on her again for $$$$$ because the matter of journalistic ethics and integrity is coming to light.

See the number of official mainstream news sites beginning to cover this story finally? About 2 weeks after the incestuous corruption in the gaming industry broke? Recent, aren’t they? Past 48 hours has been the boost, to be precise. After pseud ZQ blamed 4chan.

For example: Wired, 10th Sept, Telegraph, 10th Sept.

Neatly, she now complains all dissent is 4chan. The website she has visited herself and posted on for an evening. #NotYourShield people? You aren’t real.

It’s odd how she just happened to be there at the exact same time, every time, in REAL TIME, to capture these screencaps. Does she sleep? Does she have other people ‘working’ on this? Could she have put half the same effort into her actual work? She also doesn’t know the meaning of a “raid”, and has the same inaccurate understanding as the writer of these 4chan caps. Pure coincidence?

I suppose the discrepancies between what she screencapped as “from 4chan” and the actual logs, http://archive.today/Ler4O matter not a whit, hm? Cos who can edit pictures on the internet? That’s silly talk. Point by point explanation of wrongness? http://i.imgur.com/g385IJM.jpg I live to serve.
