These people are voted in as the voter thinks they might know something about running the local government! Well, let it be known they don’t even KNOW there are only two genders! In the following group only ONE has common sense and that is the one asking ‘Can men give birth?’ It seems in London the patients now run the asylum.
‘A politician in the UK has been silenced after asking the Mayor of London to clarify his position on transgenderism, but it’s not “Cancel Culture,” according to Mayor Sadiq Khan. It’s “educating the ignorant.”
Last month, during a London Assembly meeting, David Kurten, asked Sadiq Khan to explain his position on transgenderism after the Mayor tweeted, “trans women are women” and “trans men are men.”
Kurten asked: “You put out a tweet last year in February, saying this: ‘Transwomen are women. Transmen are men. Non-binary people are non-binary. All gender identities are valid.’ Now, I read that – and I know a lot of people read that and didn’t have the foggiest what you were talking about. But it seems to appear that you think men who say they are women are actually women, and women who say they are men are actually men. So, I want to see what you actually think about this. Do some women have male reproductive organs?”
Rather than answering the question, Khan side-stepped, noted the suicide rate among trans people and accused Kurten of ridiculing them.
“I’m simply trying to find out your opinion,” Kurten said in response. “But you’ve dodged the question. You haven’t answered the question. Do some women, Mr Mayor, have male reproductive organs?”
After refusing to clearly answer the question for a second time, Kurten rephrased it, asking if men are able to give birth.
Khan responded: “I think what you’re in danger of doing is to try and incite hatred against a group of people that I care passionately about. As far as I’m concerned, trans rights are human rights and I proudly stand against any abuse directed towards trans people and the wider LGBTQ+ community. It may seem fun to you, and a good way of playing to a certain audience, I’m not going to have it.”
“Mr Mayor,” Kurten replied, “I’m simply asking you a question to find out what you think and you haven’t answered my question.”
Adding, “Mr Mayor, I want to find out what you think, because this is an issue that people have opinions on and I want to find out your opinions.”
Kurten then noted the push to remove gendered language from the NHS, such as “mother,” “breast feeding,” and “pregnant women,” and asked Khan if he would support such a move.
At this point, Kurten was interrupted by Green Party member Caroline Russell, who accused him of using “discriminatory language,” adding, “I think the member should not be further heard.”
The Chairman, Labour’s Navin Shah, then told Kurten to move on from his question because it was “verging on very, very offensive comments which are not acceptable.”
Assembly member, Andrew Boff, of the GLA Conservatives, then chimed in, accusing Kurten of “blaming the minority for the problems of the majority.
“That entails coming up with lies to make them plausible.”
Boff went on to say, “What is the truth? The undeniable truth – and I hope this Assembly can speak as one – well, obviously not as one because the one person has gone AWOL – that transmen are men. Transwomen are women. And trans rights are human rights, and let’s never forget that.”
Mayor Khan then said how proud he is to associate himself with those who silenced Kurten’s question.
“I think you’ve heard this morning, Chair, cross-party support from Conservatives, Labour, and Greens,” Khan said.
“Now some will try to portray this as Cancel Culture. This is not Cancel Culture. What’s happened is, a combination of Conservatives, Labour, and Greens have sought to educate the ignorance spewing from that member’s mouth.”
I don’t know what Mohammed looked like and you know what; I don’t care. Mohammed and his teachings have sent literally millions to hell! However, if you wish to view some pictures of what others believe Mohammed looked like you may go to http://www.zombietime.com/mohammed_image_archive/ where there are images even by Islamists of the man. Nevertheless, the feelings of the Muslims in Bradford were hurt when a religious teacher showed the students a Mohammed picture. Now, ‘A petition in support of a suspended teacher who showed students a caricature of the Prophet Mohammed has passed more than 50,000 signatures.
The Batley Grammar School teacher had apologised after showing the cartoon, widely reported as taken from the French satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo, during a religious studies lesson earlier this week.
He was suspended on Thursday pending an investigation.
The school, in Batley, near Bradford West Yorkshire is facing calls to reinstate the teacher after a petition in support of him reached more than 50,000 signatures in two days, hitting the figure just after 2.00am on Sunday.
Protesters gathered outside the school gates on Thursday and Friday, claiming the school has not taken the issue seriously.
Speaking “on behalf of the Muslim community” on Friday, one protester said: “The teachers have breached the position of trust and failed their duty of safeguarding, and this issue must be addressed as a matter of urgency.”
Communities Secretary Robert Jenrick said suggestions that the teacher was in hidingwere “very disturbing”, and branded the protests as “not right”.
When a political party calls itself the ‘Conservative Party’ such as the one in the UK says they are doesn’t mean they really are. This is the same thing we in Australia are facing, fake conservatives. Now, personally, I wouldn’t do what this councillor did but he got his point across! The Greens and Labour in the UK are simply puppets of the Left and the CCP to which the so-called Conservative Party seems to be seeking to join as soon as possible. I say this for otherwise they would not have suspended Mr. Deacon for his Facebook post.
‘Mark Deacon, a conservative councillor in the UK, has been suspended from his role for posting an image of him wearing a dress in protest of the idea of a 6PM curfew on men following the murder of Sarah Everard. The councillor faced backlash for being “insensitive” to violence against women.
On Sunday, Deacon posted a picture of himself in a long black wig and floral pink dress. He said he would dress like that if a 6PM curfew against men was imposed.
“If the Green Party and some Labour party politicians get their way and impose this ridiculous 6pm curfew on men, then I’m going to wear my dress more often,” Deacon posted on Facebook alongside a photo of himself dressed as a woman.
He later deleted the post, caved, and offered an apology. However, Twitter user @Miss-Eastgate had already shared a screenshot, writing, “Plymouth City Council, really?”
If you are like me you don’t really care what Harry and Meghan say or do. Nevertheless, the latest from the once royal couple is that ‘Meghan Markle has sensationally declared Kate Middleton made her cry days before her wedding over a dispute about flower girls dresses. “A few days before the wedding she was upset about something, yes, the issue was correct about flower girl dresses,” the Duchess of Sussex said in an interview with Oprah Winfrey. “It made me cry, and it really hurt my feelings. “I don’t think it’s fair to her to get into the details of that because she apologised and I’ve forgiven her. “What was hard to get over was being blamed for something not only I did not do, but that happened to me.” The British tabloids published the “reverse” story – which Meghan disputed. “Everyone in the institution knew it wasn’t true,” the Duchess of Sussex said. “The reverse happened, and I don’t say that to be disparaging to anyone because it was a really hard week of the wedding and she was upset about something. “She owned it and she apologised and she brought me flowers and a note apologising, and she did what I would do if I knew that I hurt someone, right, to just take accountability for it. “What was shocking was that, what was it six, seven months, after our wedding that the reverse of that would be out in the world. “I would’ve never wanted that to come out about her, ever, even though it happened I protected that from ever being out in the world.”’https://www.skynews.com.au/details/_6237833487001?utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=Daily%20Sky%20News%20Australia%20%20Newsletter&utm_content=Daily%20Sky%20News%20Australia%20%20Newsletter+CID_3598d8a42a604191bcbad85b6bb38027&utm_source=Daily%20newsletter&utm_term=BOMBSHELL%20OPRAH%20INTERVIEW%20Meghan%20Markle%20reveals%20Kate%20Middleton%20made%20her%20cry
The Court of Appeal has today ruled that it was lawful for a Christian non-executive NHS director and magistrate to be sacked for expressing in the media that children do best when raised by a mother and a father.
Mr Richard Page, 74, from Kent, was suspended from the magistracy and forced out of a role at an NHS Trust, after explaining on television that he had been discriminated against for his Christian beliefs on parenting while presiding over an adoption case.
After a six-year legal battle seeking justice against the decisions to remove him, today’s judgment has instead taken a significant step in developing further limitations on freedom of speech for Christians in the workplace.
Mr Page now intends to appeal the ruling to the Supreme Court.
‘Views might cause offence’
In his judgment on Mr Page’s claim against NHS Improvement, Lord Justice Underhill stated that:
“The extent to which it is legitimate to expect a person holding a senior role in a public body to refrain from expressing views which may upset a section of the public is a delicate question.”
He recognised that Mr Page “had a particular interest in expressing publicly his views about same-sex adoption in the context of his removal as a magistrate, which was a legitimate matter of public debate” and that he expressed his views ‘temperately’ in the media.
However, he judged that Mr Page’s views on same sex-marriage and ‘homosexual activity’, might cause ‘offence’.
The ruling suggested, for example, that Mr Page should have “declined to answer” Piers Morgan’s questions on his beliefs during an interview on Good Morning Britain in 2016.
Mr Morgan’s treatment of Mr Page during the interview led to 70 complaints to Ofcom.
However, it was ruled that Mr Page’s responses to Piers Morgan’s questions justified his removal from his financial role in the NHS, as they might inadvertently “deter mentally ill gay people in the Trust’s catchment area from engaging with its services.”
Lawyers representing Mr Page had argued at the hearing in November 2020 that upholding his removal on these grounds would force Christians holding traditional views about sexual morality into silence, making it almost impossible for them to hold any kind of public office.
Concluding his judgment however, Lord Justice Underhill stated that, “the issue raised by this case is not about what beliefs such a person holds but about the limits on their public expression.”
He added that:
“the freedom to express religious or any other beliefs cannot be unlimited. In particular, so far as the present case is concerned, there are circumstances in which it is right to expect Christians (and others) who work for an institution, especially if they hold a high-profile position, to accept some limitations on how they express in public their beliefs on matters of particular sensitivity.”
Andrea Williams, chief executive of the Christian Legal Centre, said: “This is the first time the Court of Appeal has endorsed the perverse distinction between unlawful discrimination for Christian beliefs and lawfully dismissing someone for offending an LGBT audience by expressing those beliefs. “This is simply an artificial way to exclude Christian beliefs from the protection of the law. Nobody would get away with applying a similar distinction to any other protected characteristic. You would not get away with dismissing a homosexual for coming out as a homosexual, and then saying: “we duly respect your sexual orientation as long as you keep it to yourself”. This is an unfair and chilling decision, and the Supreme Court should put it right. “The judgment sends a direct message to Christian public servants that if they allow their beliefs to influence their decision-making while in public office, they must self-censor and be silent, and are ultimately unfit for that office. If they express their beliefs in private to colleagues, they will be reprimanded, and if they then state those beliefs to the media, they will be sacked and will have their lives torn apart. “The idea that you can remove a director from the NHS based on a perception that members of the LGBT community may be offended by something he said in the media, is extraordinary and should concern us all. “This ruling provides a green light for employers to punish Christian employees who do not fall in line with and unquestionably support LGBT ideology. We will continue to stand with Richard Page as he seeks justice. We will not stop until this wrong is put right.” Responding to the outcome, Mr Page said: “This is another deeply concerning ruling from the courts against Christian freedoms, and I intend to appeal the decision to the Supreme Court.”‘https://christianconcern.com/news/court-upholds-richard-pages-sacking-for-sharing-christian-views-on-family/
You couldn’t make this stuff up! In the UK ‘“Illegal migrants are getting Covid jabs in free plush quarantine hotels at Heathrow weeks ahead of older and more vulnerable British people… while arrivals from ‘red-list’ countries must pay £1,750 for WORSE accommodation,” by Sue Reid and Daniel Martin, Daily Mail, February 13, 2021:
At the four star Crowne Plaza Hotel overlooking lawns on the outskirts of London, 20-year-old Abdul from the Sudan says he is pleased with his new life here in Britain.
He proclaims proudly: ‘I was given the vaccination yesterday at the hotel to stop me catching Covid. There are 400 migrants living here and we nearly all had it. No one I know refused.’
Tapping his arm to show the site of the injection, he adds in faltering English: ‘It’s important that we don’t catch the virus and get sick.’
Abdul, who slipped into the UK from France seven months ago, seems blissfully unaware that thousands of Britons older than him, or in vulnerable groups, still await the jab – and may not be offered it for several months.
Neither did he seem to realise that he might be accused of using up a precious dose that could protect others – including key workers – higher on the priority list.
Outside the hotel, the Daily Mail talked to ten other migrants from the Sudan and Eritrea who also took part in what they describe as a ‘mass vaccination’ operation on Thursday this week.
Among them were two Sudanese friends aged 27 and 35. The younger man said he was delighted to be offered it: ‘The vaccinations were given to us whatever our age.
‘We didn’t have to pay. We were told to queue up for them at the hotel. None of us want to catch the coronavirus.’
He added: ‘This was the first vaccination and I don’t know which company made it. We will have another one nearer the summer time.’
A Government spokesman last night said it was ‘totally unacceptable’ for the healthy young migrants to be receiving the jabs contrary to guidelines, and that the NHS was taking action to ensure it did not happen again.
The Crowne Plaza, near Heathrow airport, is among scores of hotels across Britain housing migrants who have slipped into the country illegally by lorry from Europe or on a boat from northern France to the south coast.
Is freedom in the UK completely gone? The UK and under Biden freedom is slowly being distinguished. Where does one that seeks true liberty go?
‘• London contender Brian Rose accuses No.10 of undermining democracy that leaves police in ‘impossible position’ over May elections • Rose and campaign team arrested despite ensuring fully digital campaign bus is safest in the country • Dangerously vague election guidance threatens fair vote, says Rose London Mayor candidate Brian Rose has accused the Prime Minister of undermining democracy after Rose and his campaign team were arrested while campaigning in London yesterday (Sunday 24 January). Rose is using a COVID-secure, fully digital battle bus to visit the city’s 32 boroughs ahead of the scheduled May elections, allowing the public to communicate with him via social media during lockdown but with the public kept off the bus itself. While the bus was parked legally in Southwark on Sunday morning, a large group of City of London police descended on Rose’s team, arresting them and issuing £200 fines. At the time, Rose was recording a piece to video, while social distancing. His team produced the relevant parking and filming permits, but was informed that “campaigning was not a necessary reason to be out of your homes”, despite the police being told that other political parties have continued to operate leafleting activities throughout the lockdown. The lockdown regulations include express exceptions for people to leave the house and gather in groups where engaging in voluntary work as our campaigners were or working as the production team were. WE URGENTLY DEMAND THAT POLICE FORCES ACROSS LONDON RECONSIDER HOW THEY RESPOND TO LAWFUL CAMPAIGNING.’ https://brianformayor.london/
