      Says the famous Vietnam War draft-dodger. I don’t believe he’d have gone in there without weapon. What a wanker the man is.

        I don’t believe he would have gone in there in a armored personal carrier with a locked and loaded m16 wearing full ballistic protection and with twenty well armed troops as back up
        The fact that he made such a claim shows how far from reality his rhetoric is.
        Trump is a Chicken Hawk.

        Your own safety comes first.
        Drummed into you in all training I have done from first aid to dive rescue

        A well trained cop would have waited for swat or in NZ speak the armed offenders squad to turn up.

          “A well trained cop would have waited for swat or in NZ speak the armed offenders squad to turn up.”

          Correct, and one of the finest arguments for the 2nd amendment.

      And I would’ve stopped Ryan Crotty from scoring that try by barreling him around the rib area.

      Do you believe Trump would’ve gone in there on his own with no weapon, & if so, why?

      • Alan Wilkinson

         /  February 27, 2018

        No. Too much b.s. too little evidence.

          Do you think they should send him in unarmed to the next available shooting incident so we can find out, & if not why not?

            He’d probably get shot from behind if the Left had any reps there.

              Wouldn’t bullets just bounce off a hide as thick as his?

  3. Only in Deutschland would a man with two wives who he married when they were 13 and 14 be allowed to seek “sanctuary”, be given free accommodation and full state benefits.

      that is…unbelievable…almost!

      • It’s charming how the women have got separate rooms. According to the boss husband this ensures no tension.

        You’d have to ask yourself how does this benefit Germany and the lives of Germans.

          this..Bol…’One commentator even said that he was waiting for cannibals to arrive in Germany in order to see if the state will show the same respect for their culture.’

      • NOEL

         /  February 27, 2018

        Snopes evaluation suggest most of the story is false or unbelievable.
        .
        “A municipality spokesperson told German news service Deutsche Welle that this is not how benefits work in Germany: the country’s laws prohibit polygamy and do not allow someone to receive benefits for multiple families. Rather, Ghazia A. would have to select one wife and her respective children to be eligible for social assistance. However, the rest of his wives could apply for benefits on their own.”

    Arctic freeze: Britain set for blizzards and travel disruption
    https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2018/feb/25/prepare-for-seriously-cold-weather-this-week-britons-told-uk-snow

    I have seen this cold snap being pushed on the NZ bloggersphere by a few cranks as proof global warming is not real

    What such idiots ignore is this.

    It is actually warmer at the north pole in the middle of winter than it is for much of Europe at the moment

        Get you all upset to see reality in the paper Alan ?

          Best we stick to the experts eh Griff…

          2000: “According to Dr David Viner, a senior research scientist at the climatic research unit (CRU) of the University of East Anglia,within a few years winter snowfall will become “a very rare and exciting event”.
          “Children just aren’t going to know what snow is,” he said.”

             /  February 27, 2018

            Oh look squirrel.
            gee PDB you oculd have given a link to your source.
            I like laughing at the whacko blogs cranks get information from.

              You’re far too easy to wind up Griff – I can just see you now looking for your Zimmer frame in order to stomp around the house in a rage.

              Dr David Viner said it so he must’ve…….said it. Top ‘climate change specialist’ as well so according to you can never be….wrong.

              2013 Mott MacDonald announcement: “Mott MacDonald has appointed Dr David Viner as principal advisor for climate change. An internationally recognised expert, David brings with him 20 years of experience working in the area of climate change.

              David worked for 17 years at the University of East Anglia’s (UEA) Climatic Research Unit, where he developed a worldwide reputation working across all areas of climate change. He led UK public engagement on climate change adaptation and advised both the UK government and international agencies. During this time he was also director of the UEA’s innovative climate change masters course.

              In 2007 David took up a new position as Natural England’s principal climate change specialist where he developed an adaptation framework and indicators for climate change. In 2008 David was appointed global director at The British Council where he developed a ground breaking cultural relations strategy and programme that was delivered through 250 offices in 109 countries. Working across UK government departments and in collaboration with international agencies, businesses and national governments, the programme was publicly endorsed by the UK government, the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change and other leading agencies.

              David contributed to the reports of the IPCC, which was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 2007. He is also an Honorary Lifetime Friend of the Countryside for his work on climate change and the European countryside. He has published over 100 papers and research reports and has undertaken numerous public lectures around the world.”

              PBD
              The issue my friend is cranks looking at Britain’s present cold spell and claiming it means something.
              While ignoring the arctic circle is 30C hotter than average for this time of the year.
              All you have is a random comment from one man over two decades ago you found on some cranks blog.
              Two decades ago we did not know that a warming arctic would cause the jet stream to go haywire and make weather extremes multiply all over the northern hemisphere.
