Oh look, there's 22 yards being disingenuous again.

British law in the 19th century decreed "free people of colour in the colonies" had legal equality with their fellow citizens. It was you shackle draggers whose first act having gained independence was to declare Aboriginies as "sub-human" and who removed their right to vote.
"All I need for Christmas is a ban"....good luck, Loz!

Disingenuous, eh? That accusation would have some weight if only it were even vaguely correct. Having some evidence would help, but sadly you have none, because you have absolutely no clue what you're talking about.

The British colonists were solely responsible for one of the world's most complete acts of genocide: the extermination of the Tasmanian aborigines. Not the convicts; not Australians (the colonies didn't federate until 70 years later); it was the British colonists. It is laughably easy to prove you wrong, Loz. In cricket terms, I guess you'd be my bunny. Not a very happy one, at that.

Quite apart from that, what you wrote about has nothing to do with the lack of brown faces in Australia. Widespread extermination at the hands of the British, on the other hand, does. Disingenuous, much?
Crikey, I didn't think it could get any worse than yesterday's embarrassment, but Loz may have managed to walk into an open door.

As noted earlier, due to my active participation in this thread, I don't moderate here. Same goes for the Brexit thread. So Loz is safe from me across pretty much the entirety of his hunting grounds on EF.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Can we get back on the Trump's presidency topic and only focus on bashing, praising and trolling?

you shouldn't end a sentence in the middle, on an adjective ...

or as they say in Swiss German: "mach es Sätzli"

So "God is great" is out, too? And as Trump told me, I can't tell any woman that she is beautiful? That's unfortunate. Oh, wait...

So, if Hairy Nancy becomes the next Speaker of the House, should anything happen to both Trump and Pence, she will be president!

How long did it take you to google that? An obscure conflict where between 600-900 indigenous were killed, good enough for your groupies perhaps, but is that really the best you can do? We’ll nevermind disingenuous, I’m just going to call you out for what you are, an out and out liar.

Whilst the British Empire was far from perfect, it was a bastion of enlightenment compared to what you bogans did once you got control. You want facts? Here’s some facts: from 1807 onwards the British were at the forefront of the abolishment of slavery. By 1834 the practice had been eliminated across the entire Empire. In Australia, by the second half of the 19th century, the number of non European immigrants (you know, the ones you called “Brown people” INCREASED due to the demand for labour.

It was the British that had to send overseers to ensure that you Aussies were bringing these immigrants in lawfully and not press ganging them. Then what happened in 1901? Ahh yes, the white Australia policy, you know, where you really started shitting on brown people.

So 22 yards, prove to me that the number of brown people went down in Australia due to the British in the 19th century. You won’t be able to because you’re a feckin liar and it’s not true.
Tsk, tsk. Such unwarranted aggression and personal attacks.

No googling at all, actually, the genocide of Tasmanian aborigines is very well known to most Australians. Of course, you have your facts totally wrong, again. The British exterminated some 6,000 Tasmanians. In your attempt to read something about this sad story, you probably saw that a few hundred (probably not as many as 900, but hey) aborigines who survived were imprisoned and/or shipped to the mainland.

As for your other nonsense, all those accusations levied at "me", well, I wasn't around in 1901 and I played no part in any discriminatory practices in Australia. Furthermore, you're way out of line, yet again, with your claim that Britain led the way to free the enslaved people (whom they had enslaved in the first place) in their own colonies. I direct your attention to South Africa, for starters, not to mention all the other African colonies. And you obviously have no idea what the "White Australia" policy was; it had nothing to do with "shitting on brown people" in Australia and everything to do with selective immigration. (Hmmm, that rings a bell... clearly, you would apprive of that.) Why do you make it so easy for me to show up your ignorance and bigotry?

But being the "out and out feckin liar" you say I am, I may as well renege on the commitment I stated above and ban you for repeated abusive posting. Or do you consider "happy little bunny" to be more offensive than "feckin liar", especially when the latter is (once again) completely wrong?

Somehow when eulogising the empire you missed out all of the good stuff stolen and now 'belonging' in British museums, royal jewels, what happened to Palestine and India suddenly becoming 3 countries.

Anywaaay back to the thread.

As it happens, I don't subscribe to your no active thread moderation policy, although I can see its merits. Anyway, I'll trawl back through today's posts and think about it.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Perhaps I am in the minority here: I like Trump. I wish he was the president/prime minister of my country:

Unemployment is the lowest since the early 70's, wages grew almost 5%, he was the first world leader who was capable to bring North Korea to the negotiation table, withdrew from that fool Paris Agreement, and is tough on illegal immigration, as it should be.

Look the dump that many cities in Europa have become with this uncontrolled immigration. I think his language is politically incorrect many times but I prefer a politician that speaks his mind instead of one that plays the nice guy.

So you're not able to prove your claim that the British were responsible there being fewer brown people in Australia at the end of the 19th century? The rest of your post is something that I believe chief groupie StirB has some expressions for, he will be pleased.

I'll just leave this here. Chin up, sport.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Guess the elf is going back to the tree.

Anyways, I hope the Dems are smart enough to not waste time on impeachment. (The Senate will just refuse to impeach).

It would be nice if they acted like adults and did some work benefitting constituents.
