    Now who do we know that likes to wash their feet at 'work'? says:

    ‘Why does the woman only have one leg?’

    Because she disgraced her family by listening to pop music, so in order to maintain their honour, her father and uncle hacked it off?

    She has two legs, that are ‘shut’.

    The BBC loves spunking your money away says:

    Yes. They get paid (your money) so they can wash their feet.

    Beats working, I suppose.

    I wonder if they’d pay staff to take their kids to visit Santa’s Grotto, too.

    You know, equality and inclusivity etc etc.

    Diane Abbott charged a Children’s registered Charity £150 for 10 minutes speaking at their event in City Hall. This was from 1.30 to 1.40 on 3rd December when Parliament was still sitting, so she also got double paid.


  12. 12

    This seems like a pretty ignorant and poorly thought out post. Surely these facilities exist for people who practice Islam, Hinduism and some sects of Christianity who all traditionally wash their feet before prayer?

    Nicola Maxey from the Met Office said the Prime Minister failed to draw the crucial distinction between weather and climate change.

    “What happened at the end of December and at the beginning of January is weather,” she said.

    “Climate change happens on a global scale, and weather happens at a local scale. Climate scientists have been saying that for quite a while.

    “It’s impossible to say that these storms are more intense because of climate change.”

    Look, my gut was telling me I believed that there might possibly be a link that I should have mentioned to the people, as I believed what my gut was telling me. Just because some expert, empirical evidence and other specialists in the field do not agree with my gut or me, does not necessarily mean that my gut is wrong, and I run the country not her. So there.

    I give you a cast iron guarantee that this is all climate change which can be fixed by carbon tax and more windmills, and public funds for my mates who make windmills and stuff. ** taps nose **

    You sure? says:

    Which Christians are required to wash before praying?

    When Jesus was questioned as to why his disciples did not ceremonially wash their hands before eating, He said that it was not what goes into the man that makes him unclean, but what comes out of him, from his heart.

    Washing with water will not clean a man spiritually.

    It’s rather interesting of late that after years of the BBC saying that the science is settled that the Scientists (not those employed by the UN) are saying that the science is far from settled and the more they look the less they understand. And the catastrophic man made global warning sceptics are using science to back their argument while the warmists use “feelings” and ” I believe” to make their case.

    Isn’t there a problem here that to say if there is climate change then you have to measure something and you have to do the measurement in a local place so you will be measuring weather ?

    BBC PC Department says:

    The image that you refer to is not a woman. It would be sexist to consider a person wearing a skirt to be a woman. We do not discriminate against people with one leg. It could be a kilt to which you refer. It could also be a person turned sideways. This toilet is provided for couples, as is clearly shown by the two persons holding hands, with no feet. The foot wash facilities refers to sinks that are 12 inches long. Foot will be replaced with 30 cm. Thank you for your comment.

  52. 52
    Point of Information says:

    Christ did command Christians to wash their feet before praying.

    See John 13:14-15 (King James)


    However, the foot washing facilities for Christians would only be pertinent on Sundays, or Sat’urdays for 7th Dayers, which such devout Christians would not be working on as they are Sabbath days.

    This is a poorly though out post Gatsby, surely you know people who practice Islam are separated by gender for prayer (and in the classroom), this starts by having separate entrances into the mosque as well as foot washing facilities.

    Muslims are allowed to keep dogs if they’re for protection. K9 was for protection, and therefore Halal, not Haram.

    Furthermore, Sir, the Dóctor’s time machine made a nonsense of an assistant’s age; he could quite easily transport a 20 year old back to the time when she was 6 (or, if he was being really horny, even younger).

    It’s better than at my office – the bathroom near the “multi-faith room” (aka unofficial Mosque) doesn’t have foot washing facilities, so they wash their feet in the sinks. Nice. There also seems to be something about washing your nasal cavity too so people suck water into their nostrils and blow that out into the sinks too. Double nice.

    When alarmists such as James Lovelock are quoted in The Guardian that 80% of humans will perish by 2100 AD and “billions of us will die and the few breeding pairs of people that survive will be in the Arctic where the climate remains tolerable” then their extraordinary claims would indeed require extraordinary evidence. That’s extraordinary empirical evidence and NOT some unproven computer model.

    I recall back in the day having to leave the student union bar to attend to an urgent call of nature.

    Whilst stood at the urinal, there’s a sudden massive crashing sound coming from one of the cubicles behind me. I look around and lo and behold one of the schh, you know who’s has crashed through the cubicle door and is lying lying semi concussed on the floor. It was obvious that when you’re used to squatting and shitting through a hole in the ground then trying to perform the same feat whilst balanced on a toilet seat can prove a little more problematic. Apparently it was a common occurrence and having to wipe the seats to remove footprints became something of an occupational hazard. Gotta love diversity!

    Einstein’s General theory is the best treatment of Gravity that we have so far and yet we know that it is not complete since it fails on the quantum scale. Some day it will be replaced with a more complete theory, so no, the science of gravity is not settled. In fact there are currently a number of competing theories of quantum gravity. Also there is the issue of dark matter and some other strange effects at cosmic scales for which GR cannot account.
