Discrimination

My company has now decided to have a live stream of director interviews. It’s a great idea. Gives us an idea of what is going on with the company. However, those of us in the call centre have no sound on our computers. The company seems to think that we would be stupid and useContinue reading “Discrimination”

Red Meat Causes Cancer?

I saw on the TV this morning that ‘they’, whoever ‘they’ are, have now said that red meat can cause cancer. Well, this is not actually news. It’s been known for sometime. If you haven’t seen it watch the video of ‘Forks Over Knives’ (forksoverknives.com). It details research done showing the effects of an animalContinue reading “Red Meat Causes Cancer?”

Dress The Desk

We’ve begun to dress the desk, or the bay as it is. Our Halloween theme is fortune telling, which has annoyed certain people. See my previous post for more information on that. It seems to be one particular person that is really not liking it. We’ve chosen a theme for our decorations. We’ve set upContinue reading “Dress The Desk”

Racial & Religious Hatred, Prejudice, Slander, Defamation

Something was given to me at work today that could be seen as labelling a particular religious group as devil worshipers. I know that they are not. The information was copied off a website and was given to several people so I asked for a copy. I read it through with interest. Some of itContinue reading “Racial & Religious Hatred, Prejudice, Slander, Defamation”

Refugees or Migrants?

I mentioned in my last post about the men coming from Pakistan and mixing with the refugees. It’s my opinionContinue reading “Refugees or Migrants?”

Refugees

You would have to be a very hard person not to be moved by the picture of the little boy who drowned. The photo has moved a lot of people around the world. The people who took money from his family have been arrested and will, hopefully, face many years in jail. We all knowContinue reading “Refugees”

Black Country Flag

This week a so-called ‘equal rights campaigner’ has branded the Black Country flag as racist. According to Patrick Vernon the chains on the flag represent slavery. What an idiot! The Black Country is an area within the West Midlands with a very distinctive history. With the Victorian Industrial Revolution this area became the manufacturing andContinue reading “Black Country Flag”

Derogatory Additions To Names

I expect a lot of people have seen the news about a gentleman who had a derogatory addition to his surname. It was in the news recently and a great deal on social media. Not a nice thing to happen at all. I can’t see anyone enjoying getting a letter with that kind of thingContinue reading “Derogatory Additions To Names”
