Did anyone catch the news bulletins on commercial radio earlier today ? It seems that BAME is now being termed as "redundant & unnecessary" . I wonder what band wagon the protesters will jump onto next ?

I give up with the increasing use of these silly acronyms. Maybe it’s old age, I’m sure I knew what BAME stood for at one time. I see LGBT now has a Q on the end of it what’s that all about?

I think it should be made illegal to use weird acronyms in any text without first explaining it’s meaning and that way I might be able to understand some of the postings here a bit better.

Do acronyms count in scrabble these woke days Bill ? At least we can possibly  get rid of some of those pesky letters that don't fit anywhere.

Seems the London woke brigade are cheering Lammie for taking on a woman radio listener, who argued that he wasn't English, but Afro-Carribean.  Suppose next he'll start claiming he's really white.    :rolleyes:   😠

Was reading where they are cutting down trees to turn the land back to bog land as the bog stores more carbon than trees.

Not too long back they were advocating planting trees to offset carbon,now they are cutting them down for the same reason......🤭🤭

WOKE that's another one Davy, I'm sure I looked it up once but I've slept since then. :)

Obs just said this and I haven't got a clue what it means or what he's on about. I assume Lammie is a person but but it's anyone's guess. 

 

I had a great view of the space station going over last night at about 8.30. Why we cant just call it the space station I don't know, it's not like there are loads of them up there.

Because it's quicker to type ISS perhaps?

David Lammy, MP for Tottenham, is the shadow Justice Secretary and one of the less intelligent Labour MPs (and it's quite a large field) and well known race-baiter.

Just for Bill, try decifering this one: MRCAONWI community. 🤔

Or from the same source MACARONI.

The Q stands for Querying or if you are one that word beginning with Q that just meant unusual before we were banned from using it by the PC brigade.  I want words back.

Didn’t we once have a campaign to try and get stuff put into plain English so that people wouldn’t struggle so much trying to understand things? I’m sure we did, and that probably had a bloody acronym as well. As for Lammie, I’d bet that 95% of people wouldn’t have a clue who that is, I wasn’t even sure it was a person or some farmyard cartoon character. 😊

The Plain English Campaign is still going strong Plain English Campaign, and its logo of a stylised crystal can be seen on many government publications. I don't think it does have an acronym, thank goodness.

My favourite Lammie incident was when he was filmed opining about never seeing any police in that area any more with a police man walking up behind him. (David Lammy bemoans lack of police while metres away from an officer (inews.co.uk)) The man is a buffoon.

I think you're being a bit soft on Mr Lammy calling him a buffoon. He makes Dianne Abbott look like a genius 🤣

you forgot the + at the end there obs. It is  now LBGTQ+.

The + was added to represent those others who do not identify as "straight" eg asexual,pansexual, omnisexual and others.

With all these different categories & other preferences for matters of the flesh ,i think maybe we straights are in the minority these days  & may need a group of our own. Who will champion our cause ? Who will fight for our right to our own tick box on a government claim form ?
