Not a brilliant comparison to make but looks to have been taken in a strange way by the leaders office and she was sacked within a day. Is this really comparing him to Nazis?
“Those of you who haven’t [read the book] will have watched the film Bunker, about the last days of Hitler, of how you stop receiving into the inner group any information which suggests that things are not going the way you want.”
“gross over-reaction to a comment that was actually about Jeremy Corbyn’s bunker mentality”
“This sacking only reinforces her point. The speed of this sacking shows that Labour’s leader is quick to act to protect his feelings, but slow to act against racists. The double standards are extraordinary."
It does seem that at every turn the leaders office are doing things which make their lot in general worse. It's a strange strategy.
These types of things are always sold, really there should be some foresight and they should be sent to a museum. I assume Musk or Bezos will buy them given their private space companies and interest in the subject.
This is a nice quote given a few on here totally dismiss the line that the Soviets would have exposed it if it hadn't happened:
"Then again, the USSR had the means to expose the Americans at the time; it was listening in. “We were there at Soviet military base 32103,” the Russian cosmonaut Alexei Leonov recently recalled. “I swear to God we sat there with our fingers crossed. We hoped the guys would make it. We wanted this to happen. We knew those who were on board and they knew us, too.”"
The fact other nations say it happened is also totally ignored:
"Despite the extraordinary volume of evidence (including 382kg of moon rock collected across six missions; corroboration from Russia, Japan and China; and images from the Nasa Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter showing the tracks made by the astronauts in the moondust),"
Still, no convincing some people will hang onto one tiny thread they feel is right even against a huge mass of counter evidence.
It's really sad with the 50th anniversary rapidly approaching - the belittlement of the combined achievement of 400,000 people is awful.
Not the main reason for the road which is obviously goods from China (hopefully eventually with electric trucks) but I suspect it might become quite a popular road trip if they make visas easier to get and there are some support roads into the other countries in the region.
Splitting children from their parents and then indoctrinating them with what the Chinese want them to think. The outcry was massive when the US had their horrible policy of splitting migrant parents and children up, this is even worse given the massive organised nature of it and the endgame.
“These boarding schools, they say, allow minority children to learn "better life habits" and better personal hygiene than they would at home. Some children have begun referring to their teachers as "mummy".”
“Many of the schools bristle with full-coverage surveillance systems, perimeter alarms and 10,000 Volt electric fences, with some school security spending surpassing that of the camps”
“"I think the evidence for systematically keeping parents and children apart is a clear indication that Xinjiang's government is attempting to raise a new generation cut off from original roots, religious beliefs and their own language,"
"I believe the evidence points to what we must call cultural genocide."
I know China are powerful now and vital to world trade but the West (well the EU given how rubbish the US is at the moment) really need to be asserting to China how unacceptable this all is.
