Ming The Merciless is a Discriminatory Stereotype - Apparently


 

The British Board of Film Classification (BBFC) senior policy officer Matt Tindall said that Ming is a discriminatory stereotype because :

"Ming the Merciless is coded as an East Asian character due to his hair and make-up, but he's played by a Swedish actor in the film, he's played by Max Von Sydow, which I don't think is something that would happen if this were a modern production, and is something that we're also aware that viewers may find dubious if not outright offensive.

The character of Ming of course comes from the Flash Gordon comic strips from the 1930s and the serials, and let's just say attitudes towards the acceptability of discriminatory racial stereotypes have moved on considerably since then, and rightly so of course."

TWAT

Ming is ruler of Mongo, he is not meant to be Asian!

Stand Down A Flight!

 

With the announcement of  "mutant" covid on Saturday, the French were sufficiently spooked to announce to what in effect amounted to a blockade of Britain.

The result?

Mass panic on Twitter about where people will be able to buy their lettuce!

However, the French are now instituting a series of measures and will lift the blockade. As such, people's supply of lettuce will remain secure.

Meanwhile, the rest of us may be pondering why the "mutant" covid has appeared out of nowhere, and has resulted in Tier 4. It transpires that a very very vocal minority on the NERVTAG group that advised the PM wanted immediate action (despite the report about the "mutant" only have "moderate" confidence in its findings at this stage).

Who would be so vocal in their calls for another lockdown/tier 4?

Well now, a brief scan of the membership reveals our old chum Fergie!

Who would have thought it?!!

London To Go To Tier 3


 

Handcock confirmed yesterday that London will go into Tier 3 on Wednesday.

It is worth remembering that other countries in Europe are under a stricter lockdown and some, eg Germany, closed their bars/restaurants some weeks ago. Yet they are seeing an increase in cases.

Here are a few points worth remembering:

- The people ordering lockdowns and pub closures will not be losing their jobs and, when this is over, will still be paid and entitled to a nice defined benefit pension when they retire.

- Bars and restaurants are not responsible for the increase in cases (especially in countries where they are already closed!).

- The more restrictions you place on people, and the less opportunity you give them to socialise in clean well ventilated places (eg pubs), the more inclined they are to break the rules.

- Where the pubs are shut, or placed under idiotic restrictions (eg the "substantial meal" rule) people socialise in each others' homes.

- It is clear, based on the petty minded nonsense of some of the restrictions, that SAGE does not understand human nature.

- Households are the prime drivers of infection; as they are not well ventilated, not clean and not socially distanced (unlike pubs and restaurants).

- SAGE will always recommend stricter lockdowns, it has become a scratched record that needs to be thrown away.

Brighton's £154K Covid Cops - Money Well Wasted!


 

Brighton and Hove News reports that Brighton will be recruiting four Covid Cops (at an initial cost of £154K).

The four “covid cops” will police businesses across Brighton and Hove and have the power to shut down rule-breakers and fine them £4,000.

The officials – to be known as covid information officers – will be expected to provide advice and guidance in most cases before resorting to enforcement.

Those taken on in the temporary posts are to help ensure that businesses – including shops, caf├ęs, pubs and bars – are covid safe.

The government has granted £154,000 to fund the posts from this month until the end of February. After three months, the service will be reviewed and adapted as required.

The officials will have the power to serve notices and fines ranging from “coronavirus improvement notices” and “coronavirus immediate restriction notices” to “coronavirus restriction notices” and fixed penalty notices.

As to whether they are really needed remains doubtful, given that every other official in Brighton appears to have powers to levy fines and poke their noses into other people's business!

The council’s Policy and Resources Committee was told that the covid cops would join other council officials in being granted enforcement powers under the coronavirus regulations.

They include field officers as well as environmental health, trading standards and licensing officers and the council’s seafront team.

The Welsh ID Card

 


Totally irrelevant as there is no requirement to prove that you have had a vaccine, and no lawful means to compel you to reveal your private medical records.

Cinemas and Theatres Can Serve Booze WITHOUT Food!

Another example of Nanny's ridiculous rules!

Maybe pubs should just show a film, that way they wouldn't have to serve food?
