Positive Twitter Day

Guido is supporting #PositiveTwitterDay today. Twitter, especially the political Twittersphere can be a horrible nasty place, well today Guido will do his Christian best to be nice to all in his tweets. The idea comes from the invariably polite Sunder Katwala.

A number of well known Twitter curmudgeons have already re-tweeted the hashtag #PositiveTwitterDay and entered into the spirit of the day. Guido for his part is determined to have civil, positive discussions today with the likes of Polly or Mehdi. The power of positive tweeting…

    Squatters’ rights are now wrong.

      Positive friday:Everyones a winner says:

      I see Labour are already voicing their objections so why not include a clause in the legislation that this law does not apply to properties owned by Labour members of Parliament or indeed anyone else who objects to its proposals.
      Such people need only inform their local authority who can attend at their property with legally sanction plakards which can be affixed to their properties saying

      ” Squaters welcome here, please feel free and no legal action will follow”.

      That way everyone’s a winner.

      We support squatter rights unless they try to squat in our holiday homes in which case the police should arrest them

    You mean I can take the day off? Oh well, off to watch C4 all day. Better to watch proper human endeavour than listen to the emotionally disabled parasites in the Westminster village.

Rod Liddle on the loony UN sexism special rapporteur:

“There is more sexism in Britain than in any other country in the world, according to a mad woman who has been sent here by the United Nations.

Rashida Manjoo is a part-time professor of law at Cape Town University in the totally non-sexist country of South Africa (otherwise known as Rape Capital Of The World).

Mrs Magoo has been wandering around with her notebook and is appalled by the sexist “boys’ club” culture here, apparently.

I don’t doubt we still have sexism in the UK. But is it worse than in, say, Saudi Arabia, d’you think, honey-lamb? Or about 175 other countries? Get a grip, you doolally old bat.”
