    Making the news today....

    As far as I can make out, she just didn’t agree with her very young son being subjected to compulsory sex education and wanted to voice her objections. Her job was at a different school and her work record was exemplary. She got sacked on the strength of one anonymous email and the panel that sacked her could find no evidence of misconduct. My point is, we are no longer free to determine our own views in this country. I would have been surprised at you being ok with this Dave.

    Hopefully she would give a child the same support regardless of their sexual orientation or worldview. To answer your question, if I was a lesbian child seeking support, it would be more important that I could put my trust in the supporters character than what her own personal preferences were. The report states she had an unblemished record. Personally I think it’s a shame that the thought police and social nazis have caused an apparently good person to lose their job and means of providing for her family just because she had a conflicting view on her own child’s wellbeing. Isn’t it great to know we live in an ‘inclusive’ society ?!

    https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-6925837/School-assistant-43-sacked-posting-petition-against-transgender-teaching-sons-school.html And there’s me thinking we live in a free country. Whatever your views on this, it really shows we’re heading down a dark path. The panel that sacked her even admitted there was no real evidence against her. (Just for the record, I am not against transgender people at all.) I do notice that the Muslim people protesting against it in Bham were given a free pass to do so.

    An easy one

    Nice one Reg. would like to see a demo of you do that, as I’m always concerned about getting the bar caught in the kerf when it starts to tip. How big a diameter can you go with that method? [emoji106]

    Very enjoyable video Reg. liked how you sent all the sticks down flat. Did you use a humbolt or an undermining cut to get them to fall like that?

    ArbDogs? Pics!

    I think I’d be a Remainer on this issue, given Igor’s pugnacious disposition.

    Reading these last few posts has been a very welcome respite from the relentless trauma of the Brexit thread. Well done Igor. [emoji106]

    TW125 stolen in Kent

    Slight derail, but we had two guys turn up at our job yesterday wearing helmets and our logos asking the elderly customer for the money. Even offered to drive them to the bank.

    Climate change anyone?

    Sweden, not surprised .... the same country that is about to deport thousands of Iranian Christians back to the Ayatollahs tender mercies, yet welcomes jihadi extremists with open arms.

    what's up with swearing?

    Firstly, she received what she asked for, so she got a lot more than a little charity. Secondly, yes, The accounts of Jesus’ interactions show that he was caustic at times, but, if you study these accounts in a little depth, you’ll see that the only people he got angry with were the ‘religious’ establishment people of the day. So if Jesus really was God come as a man, then it stands to reason that God doesn’t care much for religion either.

    I resisted the urge to look for ‘blokes mincing’ memes
