- 3 things
a nationality, a culture & a language. It gets confusing when people use the same word to mean all eg Polish, Polish, Polish,
Can we please have 3 different words.
1. UK - the name of a country
2. Anglo - the name of type of culture ..which is common in UK, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand & even the US
English - a language used everyday in many countries and used ad a Lingua Franca by more people whose home language is something else
I notice I am problems connecting with people, at the ends of both recent festivals it seemed there was the group & me
whilst I am able to share in things like working, playing games & volleyball, philosophical discussions I don't participate in many other things like :
- getting drunk
- smoking dope
- late nights
- green thinking
- spicey or complicated food
- digital planet waste food tweets
HEADLINE : Arvidas Skrinskas 'murdered over sat-nav row',(An example from our local newspaper ..it doesn't mention the nationalities of the people ..but I guess they are East European temporary workers as both names are not typical of our area)
Steve Jones spoke of scientific consensus on climate change & that BBC news had been countering them with opposing views from political people who are not scientists. This is true, but that is not the issue ...Yes climate is changing over years ,cos it always does that. However the issue is whether such changes are :
1. driven by MANMADE CO2
2. on a certain path to catastrophe
The issue is not that the climate is changing, but rather that it does not seem to be changing in the pattern predicted by those scientists pushing catastrophe.
The BBC News coverage on Climate Change is not balanced cos it gives time to news promoted by Activist-scientists and any old green activists, but doesn't give coverage to scientists who question the details. rather people labelled climate skeptics and banned.
