MID WEEK OPEN THREAD….

On the day the BBC reveals that 100 of its employees earn more than the PM, here is a new OPEN thread. To me, the scandal is not the red herring of ‘pay gap” but rather one of the annual extortion of £3.5bn from anyone who owns a TV. A stalinist construction in 2017. Thoughts?

    BBC the free advertising agency for Subsidy sucking GreenBlob biz/mafia
    R4 You and Yours 12:34pm Direct link to prog item
    Private biz Chargemaster had their official launch today for their EV electric car showroom in a Milton Keynes shopping centre
    R4 sent down a reporter to report for 10 mins, and ask the least challenging of questions.

    My listening Notes :
    David Martell CEO and founder of @ChargemasterPlc
    “lots of new electric cars coming
    ..average range will be 200 miles available in next 12 months *
    ..all cars will be zero emission by 2050 **
    ..the targets are very realistic *
    but gov changes have meant a big increase in costs ..re road tax etc.”
    (* wishful thinking)
    (** There’s no such thing cos tyre/road abrasion creates dust … and CO2 emissions are created at the power station)

    There is a gov dept Office for Low Emission Vehicles

    Poppy Weleh from @GoUltraLow
    UK Govt is committed to support EV’s to £600m*** (grants/infrastructure) over this parliament Grants are available £4,500 for EV £2,500 for hybrid”
    + free carparking and other privileges
    (*** Unicorns don’t pay for subsidies and inefficiencies associated with politicians pushing GreenBlob products
    ..it’s us that pay
    and for EVs it’s rich people who buy them and get the subsidies ….whilst poor people pay for those subsidies)

    You know on R4Today when someone from in management imposes ANOTHER global warming story on them, the studio staff seem to just play the tape wait for it to end and then move on to the next item without commenting …well I detected the same with this item.

    FFS The tweet shows that the BBC prog item came out of a F-ing PR firm’s work

        “Ah but battery tech is improving year by year”
        Again this is their wishful thinking.
        but it means there is a strange dynamic.
        #1 You wait an another year to buy instead of today
        #2 Changing tech means the secondhand value of what you do buy is low.
        ..that’s why the whole lot EV/hybrid only have 1% market share .

        If was really about saving CO2 they’d concentrate on CO2 intensives lik trucks that are on the oad most of the day.

      If we have barely enough electricity generating capacity to meet our conventional needs where is the extra capacity coming from when we substitute electricity for petrol/diesel?

      Of course our conventional needs aren’t static either – more people, more demand, simple. The ‘invisible’ internet continues to demand ever more power as cat videos take over the world, Iplayer replaces ‘live’ TV and speeds increase. The observant amongst you might have noticed that most BT ‘green’ cabinets in the street have gained a twin with louvres. That is for fibre broadband and it has louvres because it uses power and its older twin doesn’t. Some of these older cabinets are getting an add-on for G.fast broadband. They have louvres too because they use power and the reason that there is an extra box is that the ‘fttc’ cabinet can’t cope with the heat. Bus shelters too are getting ‘smart’. The ones around here claim to consume 75 watts per digital display. At least LED lighting is working for us.

      The BBC take will be to couple this rise in crime with the fall in police numbers due to Tory cuts. It certainly has nothing to do, in their eyes, with increased number of migrants. The fact that 28% of babies born in our country last year had mothers who themselves were born outside of the UK , is an indicator that our society is fracturing and fracturing very quickly. History tells us that fractured societies are unstable and dangerous. The BBC will of course make no mention of this, they just keep pumping out the totally discredited enrichment message whilst encouraging even more migration. Really he fools have taken over the asylum .

        The following day, Corbyn gave an interview to Al Jazeera in which he said: ‘Chavez was a very important figure worldwide… because he was prepared to use his position to argue for a different world order.’ Corbyn attended a vigil in London at which he gave a stirring speech about the great man: ‘Chavez showed us that there is a different and a better way of doing things,’ he said. ‘It’s called socialism, it’s called social justice and it’s something that Venezuela has made a big step towards.’……..

        Across the country, supermarkets are empty and most ordinary people queue for hours every day just for flour. Many of the animals in Caracas zoo have starved to death, but even those who survive aren’t safe — Venezuelans have taken to raiding the cages to butcher and eat whatever they can find: horses, sheep, pigs. In the wild, they hunt flamingos and anteaters for their meat. Inflation is expected to surpass a mind-blowing 2,200 per cent this year.

        Yet the BBC seems incapable of putting the same 2 and 2 together, and we all know why.

    As property owner he’d been arrested but not charged.
    But his name was kept secret thru the trial
    “The Bullfinch trial ended with seven men being jailed for a minimum of 95 years on June 27, 2013, for their roles in the ring which groomed, drugged, raped and prostituted six young girls between 2004 and 2011.”
    “The judge’s decision to hold the hearing in secret came after police claimed press reports could hamper its investigation, with the judge agreeing the force’s inquiries might be jeopardised.

    Mr Khuja’s lawyers then obtained a further court order during the 18-week trial of a gang of Oxford men charged as part of Operation Bullfinch at London’s Central Criminal Court.”
    “The property developer was kept on police bail until July 25, 2013, when officers admitted they had insufficient evidence to charge him, but prosecutors told the Central Criminal Court Mr Khuja would remain under investigation for child sex offences.”

    Not related to the BBC but MSM in general. I recently saw Tucker Carlson speaking to Caitlyn Jenner with the title underneath saying Caitlin Jenner Transgender Woman.

    She’s not a transgender woman, she’s just a woman. When a caterpillar transforms into a butterfly, it becomes a butterfly not a chrysalis butterfly.

    If, Caitlyn, you want to become a woman, then fine. But when you have transferred to it, then you are just a woman. That’s the group that you want to be a part of, that’s the group that seemingly you keep endlessly promoting to everyone that you want to be within so just be a woman.

    I thought the whole ‘I’m so offended because you are treating me differently’ was because you just want to be accepted as your mercurial gender classification and left alone. Why then do you have to apply a new classification that intentionally defines you as not a woman and not a man but a transgender woman?

    The reality is that you want to be treated differently. You want to make a big song and dance and flap your hands around and say look at me but don’t look at me, I just want to be a woman but I want to be a ‘different’ woman.

    It’s not about tolerance, it’s not about diversity and it’s not about being accepted. It’s about blatant self promotion and attention seeking for your fragile, self indulgent ego.

    The bBC and its ‘Look there’s a squirrel’ during the bBC wage crisis:
    Margaret Thatcher suggested threatening Saddam with chemical weapons

    According to the bBC, nasty Maggie wanted to drop chemical weapons on poor beautiful Muslim children. When actually even the bBC report what she actually said:
    “The prime minister asked what we would do in the event of an Iraqi attack with CW [chemical weapons] or BW [biological weapons].”The president said that world opinion would eat Saddam Hussein for lunch if he resorted to this. The prime minister doubted whether Saddam Hussein would be deterred by world opinion. Did the US itself have CW in the area to act as a deterrent?
    The bBC doing what it does best. Inking the public platform of scrutiny in which to blind-side its critics, in which to allow it to scuttle up the nearest dark hole for safety.

            Glasgow’s high murder rate, largely knife crime, has never been a state secret. It’s been a problem for years. The stats are separate from England & Wales so it’s difficult to be absolutely certain that one is comparing like with like. That’s why I said “believe” rather than “it’s a fact”.

            http://www.express.co.uk/news/uk/433651/Scotland-still-top-of-British-murder-rates-despite-record-fall-in-violent-deaths

            London’s murder rate is not as sky high as some “believe” or, it would appear here, want to “believe” although, as I said, it’s been a bad year. I see lots of assertions without “hard core statistics” – often passed off as fact.

            If some want to reject it, that’s up to them.

    The BBC should team up with Sky and agree to pay all their regular presenters nothing.

    Give them the option: stay and work on screen for nothing (and enjoy the perks, newspaper columns, personal appearances, advertising) or fuck off to a life of well-deserved penury.

    Back in the 60s, rock bands tried to ask for substantial fees for promoting their songs to the milliions watching Top of the Pops. They were told to appear for expenses or fuck off. They all agreed to play for expenses. So it works! That said, in a perfect world, the BBC should be closed down, pronto.

    She also works for the Guardian.

    Sky is gradually becoming a satellite version of the BBC with its left leaning bias, and increasingly its the views of left wing journalists/commentators that are given plenty of air time. The trouble is, like this young lady, they’ve only just got out of nappies, and can barely speak properly. God knows who hires these people.

    “Donald Trump celebrated his 70th birthday on 14 June, which makes him the oldest man in US history to assume the presidency. The previous record-holder, Ronald Reagan, was 69 when he took office in 1981.
    Perhaps keen to allay fears about his senior status, the business mogul had his doctor prepare a gushing letter pledging that he would be “the healthiest individual ever elected to the presidency”.

    Usual BBC trickery this morning… The website carries the story of Faizah Shaheen, described as a British woman, who was questioned by counter-terrorism police after reading a book on ‘Syrian Art’ on a return flight from Turkey. This was carried out under Schedule 7 of the Terrorism Act, a fairly blunt instrument that plod might also cite when trying to stop you taking holiday snaps of, say, the Houses of Parliament. The article thoughtfully points out that she was ‘on a honeymoon flight to Turkey in 2016’ – doesn’t actually say she was on her honeymoon but if it helps solicit sympathy then, hey, let’s use it. The article quotes Jo Glanville, a director of English PEN, described as a British free speech organisation who helped fund the book Ms Shaheen was reading (looking at their website you might think it should be called Arabic PEN). And who is Jo Glanville? Well, she was a BBC current affairs producer for 8 years, but the BBC conveniently forgets to mention that she’s a former old girl. Ms Glanville is quoted as saying that the airlines actions were “a fundamental violation of our liberty, undermining our freedom to read any text we like in a public place”. Only the BBC does not subscribe to that view, of course, indeed it doesn’t even believe that certain texts can even be read in private. Consider the case of Thomas Mair, the man with a history of mental problems who was convicted of killing Helen Joanne Cox MP. Within 24 hours of the event, a history of his book purchases had appeared on the BBC website, supplied to them by the infamous Southern Poverty Law Center. This list included a supposed ‘terrorist manual’ that was, in fact, readily available on Amazon. The questioning of Ms Shaheen may or may have not been appropriate, and the actions of Mr Mair were decidedly not. But the actions and motivations of the state broadcaster are invariably questionable and suspect.

      Ian, this is interesting, I’ve looked at the website you mentioned, because I wondered if this was the same woman who I mentioned in an earlier post, when she was reviewing the papers on Sky.

      Yep, it is, – the article says…………………… Ms Shaheen – a Muslim, whose work in mental health care in part involves looking for the signs of radicalisation in young people ………………….. What it leaves out, is that she is the Director of Class Think Tank, and also works for the Guardian. None of this is mentioned by the BBC, but giving the impression she is a picked on Muslim.

      I didn’t see her appear on the Vicky Derby talent show, but wonder if her credentials were mentioned then, or perhaps this is an orchestrated campaign for a new career on the tele !!!

    “Germans are sticklers for the rules. The “I was just following orders” stereotype isn’t entirely inaccurate, and it didn’t expire at the end of World War Two. The average German places great importance on sticking to the rules, which is a commendable trait — except when taken to absurd extremes.

    Immigrants in Germany have learned that people who committed serious crimes in their countries of origin can’t be deported if they would be executed or tortured for their crimes back home. Sending them back would violate their human rights, you know.”

    Once again BBC London News serves as Mayor Little Man Khan’s pet megaphone. This morning their favourite is handed the top news headline to grandstand about future increases in train ticket prices (Not news).

    This from a cynical politician who was elected on a false prospectus of freezing London tube fares – he then performed a rapid u-turn which his pals at BBC London were loath to report and rather quick to forget.

    Khan has settled into that happy position last held by Ken Livingstone where BBC London News acts as his pet PR outlet. Poor old Boris had a somewhat different relationship with his local BBC news – their remit was to scoff and undermine.

    From today’s BBC Mid East ‘News’
    Israel has tightened security around Jerusalem’s Old City amid fears of violence over the installation of metal detectors at a sacred site. Israel has barred men under the age of 50 from the area after Palestinian leaders called for worshipers to flock there for Friday prayers. There have been nightly clashes since the devices were installed last weekend at entrances to the holy compound…Since the introduction of metal detectors, Palestinians have refused to enter the site, holding prayers outside.

    What biased BBC do not report…There are metal detectors outside the holiest site in Islam, the Grand Mosque in Mecca. That is because it was attacked and captured by a group of Shia terrorists in 1979, which resulted in a large-scale battle. The terrorists were sent by Iran. As a sensible security measure the Saudis installed the metal detectors to prevent the smuggling of arms into the Mosque. Similarly there are metal detectors at the largest mosque in India in Hyderabad. When the police searched the Mosque in Finsbury Park in London they found firearms inside. It is a simple sensible precaution to have metal detectors outside Mosques.
    But, the Palestine Authority under Pres. Abbas have decided to make this a point of contention with the Israeli Government. They have ordered Muslim worshipers not to enter through the metal detectors but to pray outside the Mosque. There have been scuffles with the Israel police and soldiers guarding the Temple Mount. I for one hope that PM Netanyahu will not rescind this order. What does it mean, that the Palestinians Arabs want to have the ability to carry weapons into the Mosque without Israeli interference? This cannot be allowed. It cannot be allowed in Mecca, in Hyderabad, in Finsbury Park and in Jerusalem.
    It’s why like so many others I do not watch or trust BBC News (!) but go to on line for a broader and in depth understanding of breaking news.

    Girl, 5, fined £150 for lemonade stand
    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-london-40679075

    Another example of how the BBC text doesn’t report the true facts but reading between the lines allows the reader to work out what really happened.

    A five-year-old girl was fined £150 by a council for selling 50p cups of lemonade to festival goers.
    The girl’s father Andre Spicer said his daughter had set up the stall in Mile End, east London, while thousands of music fans were on their way to the Lovebox Festival at the weekend.

    “But they [enforcement officiers] turned on their mobile camera and began reading from a big script explaining that she did not have a trading licence.

    It’s only when you get to bottom of the article…
    “My daughter clung to me screaming ‘daddy, daddy, I’ve done a bad thing.’ She’s five. We were then issued a fine of £150. We packed up and walked home.”

    So the father actually got the fine then?

    If you zoom in on the photo of the fixed penalty notice that was issued it says recipient is “Mr Spicer”.

    So unless his 5 year old girl is transfluid and wants to call herself “Mr” I call bullcrap!

    Apologies if someone has already mentioned this, but I see the BBC website is running with a story of a woman who was stopped for reading a Syrian book. They get a whole story out of this at it ticks all their boxes of Muslims being victims.

    Their message is: less vigilance. Better for loads of people to be blown up than for one person’s feelings to be hurt.

    God they make you sick. How is this a story? A woman was asked what she was reading and had to explain it?

    Will they ever stop this SJW insanity? Crime at insane levels; multiple terror attacks; the very existence of Western civilisation under threat. Yet they still run with this ‘story’ as if the baddie were nasty whitey for wanting to prevent terrorism? I would rather a billion were upset for being wrongly stopped at customs than for one monster to slip through and murder innocent children. For these libtards it is the other way round. They really are as mad as a box of frogs.

    I was listening to a moderate US conservative commentator yesterday who expressed a thought that seems to have some resonace here considering the absolute take over of the BBC by leftist diversity sentiment.

    It went something like this :

    ‘The Left have won the Culture War, they are now going around the battlefield bayoneting the wounded”

    Think how Pantomime Marriage is now not only law but must be celebrated – people who have doubts are sought out and hounded as bigots. Notice how BBC presenters only allow themselves and, by extention, permit we viewers a moment of patriotism when it comes to the likes of female paralympic athletes. Notice how when reporting on over-crowding of housing, roads or stress on public services our news studiously avoids any reference to immigration flow. Think how any even mild suggestion to limit our present situation of hyper-immigration is regarded as racist.

    Just stand back and look at how ungracious the left are when they win a victory. Rather than rest and enjoy perhaps accepting some compromise they move on steely-eyed to the next issue on the horizon demanding all debate on their previous win to be closed.

      Indeed, the filth of the left, as seen in Antifa, and the UAF ( union of associated fascist) or even Dope no Soap, actually are the front line assault teams. Outfits like the EDL or Britain First, have evolved the correct strategy to deal with the filth, and turned the tables on them.

Even the lefty indoctrinated meeja studies grads, who passed their exams in a one time bus shelter, turned into a yoonie, will one day mature and stop accepting the propaganda ( well most anyhoo).
      Even if it takes a full term of comrade corbyn and his little red book henchman McMao-pot-stalin, the country will be back to sensible politics evetually trying to stick it back together.
      The left appear to think they are the only ones on social media platforms, and if they cry ‘racist’ the argument is won.

    So BBC let’s focus on knife crime….blame the police cuts….well the stats hide the picture…yes it is up and guess where most of it is…London…in fact London (Met and city forces) recorded almost 3 x the level of knife crime as the next nearest region (not police force but region, East, West etc). Now I could do the stats and compare per head of population but I would be more interested in which parts of London the knife crime occurred….

    Any in depth analysis at BBC…no …Blame the police cuts…It is just so mind blowing piss poor reporting and panders to the ignorant ..

    Maybe what we need is a New York style approach – clamp down hard on all crime in the worst areas – it worked for Giuliani (and his predecessors to be fair)…except nobody in London, least of all the Major, has the balls..he will just blame the Government for the police cuts

    Beebistan website eerily quiet on the pay scandal, which is strange as much of the press are still very interested in the story, and in new revelations seeping out (I believe seeping is the correct word for a cesspit).

    The DM for example have half a dozen pages on it, and an editorial titled – savour the words – “Bloated, biased Beeb”.

    “Public scandal of the bloated, biased Beeb –

    NO wonder the BBC fought tooth and nail against publishing its stars’ pay. Two days later, the infighting among presenters, the gender pay row and the public backlash are going strong.
    With household names attracting most attention, another set of BBC figures almost went unnoticed. It has 106 – 106! – managers earning above £150,000, with ludicrous titles such as Integration Lead, and Analytics Architect. What they do is anyone’s guess.
    It also emerges that many stars are not on the list because they are paid by private production firms or BBC Worldwide. Worse, some who do appear use personal companies in a way which lets them avoid tax – a practice the BBC vowed to end.
    More importantly, this list is a reminder of the real problem with the Corporation: It is far too big. If it didn’t exist, no one would dream of setting up something so monolithic, bloated and bureaucratic.
    The BBC dominates our TV, radio and the internet, with its gargantuan website almost single-handedly having destroyed local newspapers.
    It is bad enough that this behemoth imposes a politically correct, metropolitan liberal agenda on licence fee payers.
    More worrying still, although it is weakened by its byzantine bureaucracy, this sclerotic and wasteful Corporation still has the size and monopoly power to distort the market and block competition from rivals.
    The BBC enjoys the advantage of the English language and – with better leadership – might have been able to rival US streaming giants such as Netflix by selling Britain’s creative talent around the world.
    Last year, as he renegotiated the BBC charter, David Cameron had an opportunity to drag the Corporation into the 21st century. He could have cut the licence fee, while preserving the main radio stations and BBC1 and BBC2. The rest could then have been privatised, unleashing talent on the free market to create great British programmes.
    The BBC would have been free to take risks and pay its stars whatever it wanted. Instead, it remains wedded to a funding model which is horribly antiquated and, with modern technology, frankly unsustainable.
    A once-in-a-generation chance was squandered, and the BBC remains stuck in the past.”

      Em sorry this is the UK, the label must be in a local language NOT a foreign language like Arabic

      The Halal food board wouldn’t appear on the prog,
      … the anti-stunning org did appear and said they had no objection to theArabic being replaced by English.

          When are our political Brexit chums going to make the point that Europe-a collection of great countries in need of democracy and liberation-is NOT the bloody European Union. The latter is an anti-democratic, neo-fascist imposition that was built to create an unaccountable Soviet-style excuse to force one economic currency on the whole of Europe.
          About time, we hammered home that difference-why our need to speak with the guards and jailers as opposed to Orban, Wilders and Polands patriots. Let alone 5Star and all who`ll have to recreate Europe after the EU collapses.
          If Juncker and Verhofstad still feel assured of their pensions and not a cel in the Hague-well we`re hardly the Brexit Beacon that we are now called to be, are we? We are the TRUE Friends of Europe.
          Why aren`t we stating this existential obvious truth, the bloody BBC won`t tell them will they?

      Halal – as supported by Sadiq Khan and Chicken Cottage {halalfoodauthority.com}
      2. A Muslim should perform slaughter (is this positive discrimination? Without it, is it Halal?)
      – Will BBC R4 cover the Religious element of Halal in depth?
      1. An animal should not be dead prior to slaughter
      3. Any flowing blood of the carcass should be completely drained
      4. Choice of modern and in vogue method has to be considered with caution and, it should be in line with

      Zabihah require animals to be alive and healthy at the time of slaughter, since carrion is forbidden and, jugular vein, carotid artery and windpipe have to be severed by a razor sharp knife by a single swipe, to incur as less a pain as possible. Here the only difference is that a rabbi will read what is required by his faith and, a Muslim will recite tasmiya orshahada, which fulfills the requirement of dedication (is this positive discrimination? Without it, is it Halal?).

        Halal is Kryptonite to Sadiq Khan Options:
        Option 1: Stop Halal – Muslim apostate
        Option 2: Keep Halal – a true Muslim with barbaric beliefs and positive discrimination

    .. IMHO Such orphan shopping is wrong. Children are born into a particular culture, it’s not right for foreigners like us to turn up and take them off to our countries.
    Rather their own parents need to be supported , so that they can care for the child.
    ie We should be buying goods/services from Vietnam that way parents have jobs and gov tax money
    ..and we should expose corruption.
    (Many foreign orphanages are fronts for corrupt people hoovering up grants and spending them on themselves rather than the kids, as well as having low child protection measures)

    The problem with Islam is Islam, so we need more Islam

    “The Prophet Mohammed had British values – so the only way to combat extremism is to teach more Islam in schools” {independent.co.uk/ sep2015}
    Only then can young people be led to understand that groups like Isis use their religion as an excuse – rather than a guide – to justify their barbaric actions
    If the last Prophet of Islam, Mohammed (final prophet, no more can come, end of story) was to return to this earth today, what would he make of those who have misconstrued his teachings? (no details given, everyone with a critique got it wrong – as well as ISIS. The perfect man, wrote the perfect book for an imprefect world) This is the question that could begin deconstructing extremism and winning people back who have been tempted into violent interpretations of their faith. Simply put, the way to combat Islamic extremism is to invest in teaching Islamic theology in British schools: teaching that proves the Prophet Mohammed would never have condoned their actions.
    – err, which version of Islam do you have in mind? Green Lane Mosque, Birmingham type of Islam? {wiki 2007} Al Quds type of Islam?

    Other Sajda Khan Independent.co.uk articles …
    – Sajda Khan I’m a Muslim who loves Jesus – and here is why you should too
    – Sajda Khan The Prophet Mohammed had British values
    – Sajda Khan I went to a Madrassa and it didn’t make me an intolerant Muslim
    – Sajda Khan Muslim pilgrims can teach us how to help migrants
    “The outcome of the Hajj is a spiritually enlightening (only available to Muslims). The journey (only available to Muslims) cultivates three human virtues: humility (but no non-Muslims at Hajj), equality (but no non-Muslims at Hajj) and compassion (but no non-Muslims at Hajj). A society based on these values (but no non-Muslims at Hajj) will always respond to others who find themselves on their own tragic journey, and are in desperate need of sollidarity (but not with non-Muslims, because they are not allowed on Hajj).”

    Sajda Khan mentions an author W. Montgomery Watt, whose book had a forward in it that said
    “And it’s difficult (causing a hatred?) for Muslims to face the fact that Christians aren’t persuaded by the view that Christianity is only a stop on the way to Islam, the final religion.”

    The problem with Islam is Islam, so we need more Islam.

    Jeremy Vine bigging up the ‘poor little 5-year old lemonade story’ – the BBC’s website does much the same but includes the rules.

    Pity that the father, André Spicer, doesn’t get much of a mention, especially as he is professor of organisational behaviour at the Cass Business School at City University London and a writer for The Guardian.

    What’s the betting that he voted to stay in the EU with all of its ‘essential’ laws and regulations that the BBC is afraid that we will lose?

    Heard a great comment from a caller to Nigel Farage’s LBC radio show yesterday. It was questioning whether we should pay the exhorbitant divorce bill. As the caller said, this shouldn’t be a settlement because it isn’t a divorce. It’s a membership and we are simply cancelling our membership of that organisation.

    Continuing his point, if however the EU want to be silly about this and treat it like a divorce, then the shared assets need to be divied up like they would in any normal settlement and I’m confident that we would come out laughing given the stake we must have in the property portfolio for the 2 or is it 3 ‘centres’ of the EU.

How could I mistake the door signs ? easily it would seem. On the doors of both Gents and Ladies (sorry, ‘gender’) the only indication of the difference were the Lowry stick figures, but here’s the rub — both signs said “Baby Changing Facilities”. So, was I wrong to ‘assume’ that baby changing was a female chore ? Whatever, but we are now in unchartered territory, as I know where I am with GENTS and LADIES as 99.9% of the population would be, but asking for those words to be re-instated would be an issue with all the ‘in-betweeners’ !!!!!!
