    Brits -Another Brexit Vote That YOU Can Take Part In! 

    This comes from a group called 38 Degrees, and was sent to me with an intro that strongly suggests they are NOT pro-Brexit!

    But YOU, my  dear readers, mostly are!

    However, they are asking for input, so please let them have it!

    Be careful. Their YES means anti-Brexit!

    Should 38 Degrees campaign to stop the UK ending up with a no deal Brexit?

      I have never heard of this group but I have linked to their poll and they frame everything in a negative way, as if declaring our independence is a dodgy step.
      Why do they think we must get the agreement of our masters in Brussels before we face the world as an independent country?

        Morry, they are far left and I’m surprised Ross didn’t check them out.
        I have looked at wikipedia and it says there that they have also been known as ‘Progressive Majority’ and when they adopted their new name they admitted they were ‘inspired by groups like MoveOn in the United States and GetUp! in Australia’
        Those are both far left and extremely hostile to all we stand for.
        Nevertheless, let’s have a go. They do need a dose of healthy populism!

      This 38 Degree group is something to be very wary of, Ross.
      The New Statesman had a very favourable review of its work and if the NS likes it, you and I should not. https://www.newstatesman.com/uk-politics/2012/03/38-degrees-real-opposition

        Thank you for that New Statesman article, Mack. I have just read it and 38 Degrees is dangerous.
        Aside from that, though, there was a reference to Robert Halfon MP, and a site he set up called Right Angle.
        Not RossRightAngle, so don’t worry about confusion, Ross, but I wanted to see what it was like, Halfon being quite sensible as a rule.
        We need as many media on the right side as we can get.
        However I tried the link offered by Conservative Home, but it took me to an empty space.
        You have better staying power, Ross, so keep at it.

          Very kind of you to say so, Vicki.
          I have a very loyal following but as this topic proves, there is always room for improvement.
          That 38 Degrees outfit has been messaging me for many months but I actually thought it was a housing association or insurance promo and ignored it.
          A name like 38 Degrees did not sound at all political.
          Now,prodded by Mack and Petra, I learn that 38 degrees is some technical term linking snowflakes to avalanches!
          Too clever by half?
          Have a wonderful weekend!

    Good News From Canada – No Sex Apartheid At McGill! 

     And more on discrimination against women, this time, however, with a difference. 





    An uptight bint at McGill University in Montreal wanted women-only sessions at the uni gym. The good news is that normal Canadians put up resistance!

    An online petition entitled “We oppose women-only hours at the McGill Fitness Centre” has been started by a user identified as Concerned McGill Student. The petition, addressed to the McGill student union and to university administrators, aims to collect 300 signatures.

    “All McGill students should be treated equally. Exclusive rights to the gym should not be granted to specific demographic groups. Women who refuse to use the gym when men are present make a choice that they alone are responsible for,” reads the petition.   McGill University gym women-only hours proposal causes uproar – Montreal – CBC News.

    Bravo, Concerned!

    And thumbs down to the whiner, who’s named as Soumia Allalou!



    Her arrogance is such that she makes no effort to conceal her sectarian motivations…she  wears a hair covering and cites religious reasons for her preference.

    As we hear from the left-libs all over Canada, the Dominion these days has no time for official recognition of religion. If she had advanced safety reasons, fear of molestation by male gymnasts, I’d certainly be prepared to listen to her case.

    But given the shariah sexist thinking she cites, I’d say there are other countries where she might feel more at home!  Or a private gymnasium, if she and like-minded uptights care to hire it.

    McGill facilities are there for every student to enjoy. How dare she demand special treatment because she subscribes to sexist dogma…though she quickly adduced specious nonsense to allay such criticism. 

    “I feel like there are many women who have a variety of reasons for preferring to work out in a women-only environment. Whether it’s how comfortable they are, whether they have had bad experiences at the gym in the past, whether they have less access to the machines. A lot of women tell me they feel intimidated in the weights section,” said Allalou.

    Intimidated? What, do big bad guys hog the weights? Push girls off machines? Surely not? If it happens, it’s wrong, but that’s a thing for management to sort out, not an excuse for shariah segregation!

    But the best news, the cream on the Canadian cake, if you like, is that McGill is having none of her nonsense!

    McGill University has rejected two students’ request to establish women-only hours at the on-campus gym.

    In a news release, the school said it does not believe in segregating its services, and the fact that it is committed to making sure gym patrons are respectful toward each other were key factors in the decision.
