Whoever did it couldn't even draw a swastika correctly..!
People who do it rarely can, I think there's a whole reddit or similar with a collection of naff attempts.
There's the MEN article anyway.
Skims quite quickly over the fact that "there was contact between the car and the bicycle". I wonder what kind, and how that came about.
This guy sounds like he has quite a lot of pent-up anger though.
Ah, road cc and their policy of clickbaity headlines. If only somebody had a platform that would help cyclists get organised… oh no, wait, road cc have a platform but are using it to sell advertising instead.
It’s also available on The Times and The Independent website. Oddly The Times seems worse than cc. Google it and check
Anyone remember the video game Final Fight? Where you got to smash the car up with your fists? That’s how this incident played out in my mind.
Lol. I remember it. I’m sure the perpetrator is of an age to remember it too.
When news feels like it should be in the meme thread.
Or Epic Fail/WTF. This thread, the Trump thread and the Brexit thread could all fit in those. Sign of the times.
In an appeal against Cardinal Pell's conviction, his QC has argued that "This is no more than a plain, vanilla sexual penetration case where a child is not volunteering or actively participating" and at the low end of the scale.
The rape of a child, then. No more than that.
Defending the unpopular in court is an important duty. Hard to see how it justifies saying something as patently ridiculous and insensitive, although I suppose some of those phrases have legal meaning. Still, wtaf.
Yeah it's proper grim. Ianal but I think it positions it against a violent assault, which may have a legal significance similar to the wolf pack case (rightly or obviously wrongly).
Think the defence is also trying to make it not a trial of the whole Catholic Church by proxy.
Clearly still abhorrent.
I've been aware of the whole child molestation / rape scandal problem the Church has for quite a while. But I have to say, I did not realise it went quite as far and was quite as wide-spread as it is turning out to have been. It's now past the point of "there were some 'bad ones' and the church covered it up", and gone to "this was and possibly is an endemic problem in the entire church".
Well, I don't think it's ever not been a problem. In addition to what might be a level of reflection of general social tendencies towards child molestation within the priesthood, there is additionally enforced celibacy, which is based on the idea that priests ought to live as Jesus Christ did according to Biblical writings.
Some priests, I'm sure, are very happy with, and voluntarily accept celibacy, but I think the idea that in order to act in persona Christi (whatever you may think of the truth of the Biblical story of Christ in the first place) a priest must be celibate is nonsense, and harmful to those who don't accept it. The abused become abusers, etc.
(I also think it's actually contradictory to other Christian teaching, such as the idea that God became human in the person of Jesus Christ--why, then, cut out an important aspect of being human from that? Well, obviously, because it's sinful--a slightly, shall we say, problematic idea. :) )
Anyway, trying to make Christian theology internally consistent is a little like attempting the action of King Canute in respect of the tide.
Pakistan have shot down 2 Indian planes and captured the pilots. India claim to have downed a Pakistani plane.
Imran Khan was elected on a platform of standing up to Indian aggression. And nationalist Modi is facing elections in 2 months.
Can't see this going wrong at all.
both being nuclear powers
As well as being an extremely good movie, the 'textual epilogue' really puts things in perspective.
Pell said abortion is worse than paedophilia.
The coffee shop scene in that film is so amazing, that particular victim was an advisor to the movie and seems a lovely, gentle, damaged bloke:
They really do love those children.
Inspector Sands announcement on repeat at Clapham junction currently...
As I understand it, Pakistan objects to India's planes executing bombing raids on terrorist camps that aren't inside India.
Would you trust a future US president with a single speed with one brake on the rear?
Black with red details = male menopause
A dangerous age for someone to be in charge of the nuclear arsenal
