There is this Kingsday (how weird it still is to not say Queensday) tradition in The Netherlands to hold a 'vrijmarkt' which basically means everyone can claim a spot on the sidewalk and sell their shit there. To claim this spot in advance, people mark out the spot and write 'bezet' (occupied) on it in tape or chalk.

But now some assholes with nothing better to do have decided to get butthurt about this because Kingsday is about a week before we remember our fallen (4th of May) and celebrate our liberation (5th of May) and the term bezet/occupied is the same as what we use for the German occupation.
That is a grievance so far fetched that it took people 71 years to think of it!

These cunts apparently now go around with orange tape to 'correct' the claims by taping over it with the words "free for..."

Scotland is great.
Spend two weeks on a scooter/moped going around the place. The Borders area is real pretty but the big draw is the highlands. Be sure to take time to wander the shores of a Loch and definitely get out of bed for a very early morning walk up Ben Nevis if the schedule allows. The early morning mist and low clouds are spectacular.
Stirling is pretty good too.

Also, Loch Ness caused me to be disappointed in myself. Even as a severe sceptic looking at it is different from looking at any other body of water.

Beautiful... song... yes, deffo the song that is appealing to me.

I really like this video, especially how it doesn't try overly hard.
No gyrating strippers but still hot. Simple but striking visually and the routine is good but not choreographed or rehearsed to death.

I am just amazed that anyone can get a picture of their cat like that. As if he posed for it.
My cat on the other hand has a knack for striking photogenic poses but the instant you get the camera/phone out and ready you are left with a viewer filled with cat's ass.

What a strange attitude for an animal shelter to have unless they really think the cat in question is an indoor cat that won't be able to adapt to being let outside. But in that case give a firm "no".

I feel guilty about suggesting it as there are no doubt many cats awaiting rescue, but have you thought about getting a kitten? Kittens are just so goddamn adorable. At least that way if you end up with a bastard of a cat, it is on you. *looks lovingly at his pet psychopath*
And you get to have more time with the evil little fuckers.

The positive position is freedom. Freedom to be complete and utter twats if need be. But that is where freedom is most needed, for the outrageous people. It is largely wasted on the boring normies.
The libertarians (and various others) are right to rebel against the ever authoritarian and disapproving left, and they rebel against it in ways as effective as they are entertaining. These are internet guerillas that wield memes, not Kalashnikovs. Whose mascot is not Che but Pepe.


As someone who has always had a dislike for doctrine and dogma I enjoy the current Classical Liberal/Libertarian(ish) revolt. Their lack of policy and 5 year plans is what I like about them. I'd rather trust a group that will base their policies on individual freedom and makes judgement calls on the rest above the Left and Right that have elaborate plans on pushing 'The Good Way of Doing Things(tm)' on us unenlightened plebeians.
It is somewhat unfortunate the person making the aforementioned judgement calls is Trump. But still... Hillary?! Fuck no! I prefer to take my chances with Trump.

labour are a mess, makes sense politically. also there is a genuine issue of giving the negotiating gov a decent mandate for the negotiations. if its looking over its shoulder at domestic pressure it weakens it position. that can backfire thou.

its a horrible moment in British politics ... because in a sense we are being blackmailed.

the corbynites are not interested in winning (seriously) their plan is disruption of the political landscape which makes them bloody irresponsible IMO
Interesting take.
To me it is the very height of what politics should be. Frankly, I am a little jealous at the party politics going on. Unlike ours, your politicians are up for a fight.

Here's a a serving (if not elected) PM who basically invites the opposition to be judged for their opposition.

Fully agree on the the Corbynite wing of labour is behaving irresponsibly. They are delusional to think their 60s and 70s quasi-revolutionary ideals will still fly.

The Corbynites within Labour deserve an electoral thrashing just for being old fashioned Marxists. The remainder of Labour deserves an electoral thrashing because they could not rid themselves of the likes of Corbyn, Livingstone or Diane Abbott.
Ought such behaviour not be invited to be judged at the ballot box, preferably before it does irreparable harm to UK-EU relations? This process seems to do just that. Either tomorrow or at the ballot box in June, someone will be held to account. To me that is politics how it ought to be done.

Did May just say "come at me, bro" to Corbyn and the remoaners that are still fighting a rearguard action?
Will be interesting to see if Labour will pick up the gauntlet. They are in such a mess right now, they'll get slaughtered in a general election. But their divisions might mean that Corbynites think it their moment to shine and deal with their critics. Meanwhile, those very same critics might well seize this opportunity to throw their Marxist brethren under the electoral bus.

Looks like quite the scrap at Berkeley, with antifa coming second.
If this is what it comes down to, I wish the pro-Trump/pro-free speech side the best of luck.

If they just called themselves militant Marxists I would not hate antifa nearly as much as I do currently.


In Shia LaBeouf news:
He is allegedly in a cabin in Lapland streaming to a Finnish museum where a cabin is set up to view the stream. The museum quickly beefed up security as /pol and local internet groups dropped by to troll the shit out of Shia.
The hunt is on for the cabin, which has allegedly been found. I am not so sure, and with people not too keen to fuck with someone's rental cabin (and kudos for that, btw) it might be a while before we find out.

Okay, I have to admit, I kinda like that the US dropped a MOAB. If you have that lying around, not using it on your enemies seems a shame. But really, I mostly just like it because it is bad-ass.
I got the impression from Trumps evasion of the question that he did not specifically ordered the air force to do so. That is a hands off approach I wildly prefer over Obama's micro-managing of individual operations.

That sucks man.
The loss of a pet is one of those things you never get used to or adult out of.

So you buy an Iraqi tank, what would you think you will find hidden in it?

Just heard it, understand his point and he immediately walked it back.  Much ado about nothing.
Any other  random official I would agree. But this is the WH press secretary and he took the conversation to the holocaust without a clear idea of what he was going to say. I think the calls for an apology are largely absurd, but he should be fired. Not for giving offence but for being dumb enough for creating the moment. That is incompetence.

I has a sad.

My kitty has ben missing for a couple of days now.  Wife & son put up posters as well as searched the neighborhood, but no sign of him at all. 
Hope he turns up, rleete. Best of luck to your family with their search.

So are Sean Spicers days numbered.
To be so incoherently rambling on chemical wepons, Assad and Hitler is just inexcusable.

The people trying to accuse Spicer with Holocaust denial (Annne Frank Centre US) can fuck right off too, btw.
