    I hate to generalize (but it saves a lot of time, etc), but there's a certain 'package tour type' that generally represents the worst / most embarrassing part of a nation's character. We sat one row ahead of that sort of gammon/kipper on the way to Cuba once. He was well lubricated, and I swear he used the exact same line "I don't give a fuck what you say, that Obammy's a fookin' Muslim" literally a hundred times. You also get a lot of a certain type of francophone Quebecker on these things. They're usually loud, drunk, crass and friendly. Most of their sentences end in "....eh...Tabernac."

    The two arrested are from Chigwell.

    I really, really, want to suppress my immediate response to that.

    Because it's wrong of me to assume these are kipper sympathiser fuckers who will happily vote for the "Friends of the murdering IDF scum" wing of the Tory party.

    Cruise lines aren’t profitable based solely on their cruise fares. Of all “onboard purchases,” including casino sales, shore excursions, specialty restaurants and gift shops, alcohol sales are the key to keeping the tax-free foreign flagged cruise ships profitable. Pushing alcohol sales are a key part of cruising on certain mass market cruise lines.

    It's good to see that the deep divisions that Brexit has riven through these isles has not stopped drunken idiots having a good old ding dong.

    Someone would paint her all the colours of a rainbow and attach a unicorn horn to her head, if she did that.

    Laura Loomer did all of this last year. O'Doherty needs to start chaining herself to tech office buildings.

    So Person-having-mental-breakdown-in-public Gemma O'Doherty was kicked off youtube for one otherworldly genocidal racist diatribe too many. So She has taken to protesting outside the Google headquarters on Barrow St about the shameful muzzling of her truth. She has donned a yellow vest wrapped herself in the tricolour, armed herself with a megaphone, and has received the help of John Waters. it might have been the last bit, but a load of gay people decided to go down to Barrow st and have a bit of an impromptu pride festival and call her a racist.

    It certainly is.

    There was another one of these house stealing stories in the New Yorker a while back.

    This story is bananas:

    The Most Gullible Man in Cambridge

    Over the next four years, the law professor would be drawn into a “campaign of fraud, extortion, and false accusations,” as one of his lawyers would later say in legal proceedings. At one point, Hay’s family would be left suddenly homeless. At another, owing to what his lawyer has described as the “weaponiz[ation] of the university’s Title IX machinery against Hay,” he would find himself indefinitely suspended from his job. He would accrue over $300,000 in legal bills with no end to the litigation in sight.

    An interesting little Dutch film about people with a very special job ahead of the Tour de France. It's in French with Dutch subtitles, but the iconography and the body language are universal.
