I just wrote a rant with lots of different verbs in it, I think it looks funny but it might be a little over the top to post. :think:
I was aiming for comedic ragging.

Hooked, like everyone else. ;)

All hail the hook!

... fix the rest of the accompanying system. :think:


Exactly.  Stop all this austerity smurf, stop lining their own pockets while the country's public service disappear down the toilet, stop stealing money from the poor and stop creating class and racial divisions in our society.  smurfing cockwombles.

Bananas are OK, if they are ripe and under 15cm

Also in the tweet the mayor talks about a ban on home deliveries of acid.
Wouldn't that be stigmatizing his own constituents ?

Maybe the mayor carries a multi-tool, and find carrying a knife redundant.   :multi:

I posted this a few days ago too.

I understand that he is a very unusual/controversial figure, not being a typical white anglo saxon protestant as many would expect the mayor of London to be.

His statement is not legally binding, but it does carry a lot of weight. After all he is the leader of Londoners, an elected politician leader, and his opinion represents the views of the voters that elected him.  Maybe this is what the majority wants and we just can not see it.

He is trying to build a high profile political career for himself - outside London he is disliked and not highly respected - don't take what he says too literally.

If you replace "London" with another region or country that statement can be used to describe many current political figures  :)

He was elected in London, so his views represent the majority of London voters. Why would they elect him if they did not agree with him :)

Some (many?) of Khan's votes were because he's not Zac Goldsmith.  The campaign for the mayoral election seemed to be dominated by personality clashes, party politics and racial tensions, rather than policies.

I see an instant collection right there  :whistle:  so sad
I guess that "weapon" part of the text refers to the empathy leather sheath    :rofl:

This new campaign is beyond ridiculous, and beyond the point where I doubt whether to cry or laugh at this  :facepalm:

So many Victorinox 111mm models!  :o
A few multitools, a 130mm, tons of Opinels. Really nice pic, the longer you look at it, the more you discover.

Somehow I didn’t think that opinels were such a common weapon with the hoodlum fraternity.....  ::)

Too bad the #1 has been out of production for three quarters of a century, it’s just what everyone needs, no larger than that!  :D
