The real Q is a woman, British chief spy reveals
Sir Alex Younger, speaking at Women in IT Awards, says James Bond films give MI6 a global profile – but their stereotypes are not entirely accurate
By Ewen MacAskill

Although she was not identified by name, MI6’s head of operational technology is a woman. This news came as part of a keynote speech that MI6’s chief, Alex Younger, gave to a group of women in technology, encouraging them to join the agency:

“If any of you would like to join us … the real-life Q is looking forward to meeting you and I’m pleased to report that the real-life Q is a woman.”

Poetry about 2016

2016, boy what a year
It can’t get any worse, don’t have a fear
With Hillary and Trump neck in neck
And so many shootings, what the heck?
Everything’s red
Harambe is dead.
The world’s fighting terror
We did Brexit in error.
No longer Ebola we fear
But Zika fear is here.
Kim Kardashian was robbed
No one has jobs
Brangelia split
The world’s gone to shit
Flint still has no water
Each other we slaughter
Prince and Bowie are weeped for
We’re all invested in a silly war
Christina grimmie dead by gunshot
And the UK got too hot
What could be worse, in this fear riddled town?
Oh, I know, let’s throw in some clowns.

2016, you better not fuck up the last three months.

We will acquiesce to the scanning of Facebook posts to fight terrorism, which has killed 56 people in the UK in 10 years, but will still regard the killing of two women a week by their partners as a private domestic matter.

Ship found in Arctic 168 years after doomed Northwest Passage attempt
Exclusive: Perfectly preserved HMS Terror vessel sank during disastrous expedition led by British explorer Sir John Franklin

The wreck is in such good condition that glass panes are still in three of four tall windows in the stern cabin where the ship’s commander, Captain Francis Crozier, slept and worked, Schimnowski added.

“This vessel looks like it was buttoned down tight for winter and it sank,” he said. “Everything was shut. Even the windows are still intact. If you could lift this boat out of the water, and pump the water out, it would probably float.”

“This discovery changes history,” he told the Guardian. “Given the location of the find [in Terror Bay] and the state of the wreck, it’s almost certain that HMS Terror was operationally closed down by the remaining crew who then re-boarded HMS Erebus and sailed south where they met their ultimate tragic fate.”

I can’t even begin to put into words how devastated I am over the results of the vote on whether or not the UK carry out airstrikes on Syria. I have never been particularly proud to be British, but never in my life have I ever been more ashamed of my country than I am right now.

Our government has decided, with a majority of over 170, that the UK will bomb Syria.

The MP’s then had the audacity to laugh and cheer after voting to murder people.

I wish there was something I could say or do to change this, to protect the people of Syria who’s lives and homes will be destroyed, the people who will die in a war that they want no part in, but there’s nothing I can say or do that will make this okay.

All I can say is that I am sorry. I am so, so sorry. I assure you that the vast majority of the public do not want this, and that there have been huge protests over the past week or so to try and change people’s minds. Unfortunately we have no say in what our government chooses to do.

My thoughts and prayers are with the people of Syria, I can only hope that you will all be safe.

EDIT*** The target is ISIS/ISIL/IS/whatever you choose to call it. Unfortunately it will be the innocent civilians who are going to suffer. My government sees people as collateral damage.

anonymous asked:

Are there any decent nationalist groups or parties to join in th UK?

I sometimes feel like I’m always the critic, but I honestly don’t think there are.

The National Front and the BNP have all but faded into obscurity, the EDL are just a bunch of mindless apolitical street thugs, the antifa of the right, UKIP are practically a populist reincarnation of old Labour nowadays, Britain First is run by idiots who are more interested in filming themselves handing provocative leaflets out in mosques than doing anything meaningful, NBU is just a group for Mosley fanboys and Blackshirt reenactors & National Action is now designated a terror group.

In terms of a cohesive and united right, we in the UK are lagging behind.

150,000 Afghan men, women and children killed or missing.
1,500,000 Iraqi men women and children killed or missing.
The Syrian Civil War.
The rise of ISIL.
The life and death struggle of the Kurdish and Yazidi peoples.
Literally countless refugee deaths at sea in the Mediterranean.
Terror attacks in the UK and other European nations.

All of these flow directly from the cold, premeditated, self-serving actions of the twenty-first century Men of Blood: Anthony Charles Lynton Blair, the slavering cross-bench pack of war dogs whom he led, and the bloodied capitalist interests who profited from taking us to two undemocratic, illegal imperialist wars in the Middle East. No Hell will ever come close to their atonement for initiating one of the most monstrous regional bloodbaths in human history.

I’m just so tired that, we, muslims have to explain ourselves about every terrorist attack. I don’t wanna say sorry because it’s not me, it’s not my religion, not my brothers, not my sisters that did it  that’s just some ignorant cowards who have nothing to do with Islam. Would you say sorry for something that you didn’t do?

 SO STOP ASKING MUSLIMS TO SAY SORRY
