    Farewell Kevin (R4V4G3D_SKU11S) :*-(

    Oh wow. I haven't seen Kevin for at least a decade but he was a stand-up guy. I knew him as Basic from the Hulla and AWC boards and he was such a genuine, awesome person. A great conversationalist, a great listener; I remember having thoughtful conversations with him and he always put me at...

    Brexit

    Valid points, but he lost me when he said this: Michael Gove is a vile man, deriding 'experts' and their 'opinions'. As minister of the department of education he refused to consult teachers or anyone actually in education and instead referred to the educational establishment as 'the blob'...

    Brexit

    Hey KlubmastA! I'm well aside from this shitshow which has worrying implications for me and mine. I've been following the news obsessively (and I mean ALL the papers, Sun, Guardian, Daily Mail, Independent, Telegraph,) and this may be naivete but I'm still hoping the decision will somehow be...

    Brexit

    Scotland would still have to declare independence and prove its finances are in order before applying to accession to the EU. Membership may be fast tracked for Scotland (not impossible,) but it would still take time and would only be accepted if all the other member states agreed to it. As...

    Brexit

    Gee thanks ;) I would love to but after over a decade here, a husband, a house, a career and two children I'm kind of emotionally invested in the UK...

    Brexit

    Jeffsus, is your coworker Canadian? Commonwealth citizens resident in the UK are able to vote in UK elections.

    Brexit

    It will be interesting to see what happens with Scotland. The oil has largely run out and oil prices have collapsed, making it difficult economically for Scotland to declare independence. Yet I also suspect that their entry into the EU will be vetoed by Spain which is worried that the...

    Brexit

    The leave side had no compelling reasons, they appealed to knee jerk reactions and the idea of 'taking back sovereignty' (the UK is already a sovereign nation inside the EU,) and 'taking back control'. They also outright lied to the British public, saying that with the £350 million (a...

    Teacher defends student from racist bullying and is promptly fired

    I understand the context in Ontario, (although I was trained as a teacher in the UK, in London,) as there are similar laws on bullying and inclusion here. Yes, the teacher would have to stop the unacceptable behaviour first. What do you suggest - she go straight to the principal to report...

    Teacher defends student from racist bullying and is promptly fired

    You have obviously never worked in a school and I imagine it's been a long time since your own educational experiences. The teacher would have to stop the unacceptable behaviour first and provide the 'learning opportunity' later, particularly when it's five students against one.

    Teacher defends student from racist bullying and is promptly fired

    dig this: Seriously? So you feel she was in the wrong for intervening or was it the 'aggressive' way she did so? The first quoted part of what she said is in no way inflammatory - “If you’re picking on him, you’re picking on me. It’s not five against one, it’s five against two, and there will be...

    The Unpopular Non-Breeders thread

    i could always have gone either way; i thought that i was too selfish to have children and that i liked my lifestyle the way it was but a little part of me also thought i'd regret not having children, especially when that would become a physical impossibility and no longer a decision that i...

    Panic on the streets of London...

    And Nick Clegg is a twat. I read about Wandsworth council's decision in the Telegraph, it's ridiculous. Seems like the few cases in the press are punishing the parents. London riots: teenage 'looter' and his mother served with eviction notice by Wandsworth council - Telegraph as the...
