Yeah, but Trump borrowed it and isn’t done with it yet apparently.

‘In June 2016, Jo Cox MP was gunned down by far-right terrorist Thomas Mair. By July 2017, neo-nazi Jack Renshaw readied a plot to murder his own local Labour MP. @HOPEnothate uncovered the plot, informed the authorities, and Rosie Cooper MP’s life was saved.’ - https://twitter.com/hopenothate

Why did you censor the name? I mean, I have only cursory knowledge of how terrible UK tabloids like itself are, but why censor the name like that?

you ever just squint so hard that the aspect ratio changes?

Why not obfuscate the name of that vile rag?

So what would happen to me if I were seen in Liverpool reading a copy of the S*n?

We’re a very friendly people, Warbler. Someone would likely explain as to why it’s not the done thing to read that rag in Liverpool (or likely anywhere) - and you’d likely be offered the opportunity to bin it, or someone may offer to do that for you.

Information and education are key.

^ Yes mate - unfortunately, sometimes that area of the .Gov website goes down - and seemingly quite often these days.

I’ve added a couple more links in the signature for additional info.

 

For anyone interested in learning more about what actually happened, these programs may be of interest (be warned - they are at times a difficult watch)…

This stupid half-finished jail in the middle of Detroit is finally being torn down, after sitting there for most of the decade. It was a physical monument to the incredible mismanagement of the city (the thing was built before Detroit filed for bankruptcy). What a relief.

My goodness, what a waste. Either build the thing or don’t, but don’t change your mind half way through. Obviously this jail was not well thought out.

Warb, let me draw you a map as to how terribly thought out this was.

They tried to build a jail right between a casino and a baseball stadium. Were they planing to make a lot of arrests at the casino and baseball stadium? 😄

Probably. They dont really care who goes to jail so long as they’re filling up cells. There’s a lot of money to be made in that.

Fight the real enemy!
