Midweek Open Thread 23 January 2019

A new word has entered the language – Dox

‘To search for and publish private or identifying information about ( a particular individual) on the internet , typically with malicious intent”- used recently in the Catholic School boy incident in America which the hateful left wrongly misinterpreted and exploited .

So bits of the world change for the worse -don’t they ?

    It is going to take a sequence of miracles to get the UK out of the EU. The forces of Hell are ranged against it. Today they ramped up the battle some more, aided and abetted by the BBC.

    On a plus point, the BBC have today been blunt – for the first time – and have stated more than once on R4 that Cooper & Rudd & Grieve & Soubry, & all the other prominent Remainers that you can think of, are out to stop Brexit. Previously, they have never said that in such blunt – a.k.a. honest – terms.

    Of course, the BBC may have already implicated themselves there as well. It would be fairly typical of them to have their fingerprints also on the ‘murder weapon’ but at the last minute will probably pull away and say “They did it. It wasn’t us. We’re not guilty.”

    I’ve said it before but I’ll say it again: ‘We will only get out of the EU on our knees.’ The UK has slipped back in time into Europe of the mid/late 1980s, except the power bloc now is not Soviet Russia and the secret police forces like the Stasi and Securitate. It is the proto Communo-Fascist State, previously known as the EEC and EC.

    On TwatO (R4, 1pm) there was a laughable moment when a lady was brought on to become slightly upset on air about the possible cancellation or the delay of her ferry journey for a holiday in Europe in May …. because of a possible No-Deal Brexit. I wonder how many of the passengers (who have received similar warning letters from the ferry company) the BBC had to search through just to find one who was really irritated about it and would come on the programme to complain about Brexit and the politicians. When asked, only at the end of the inertview, she admitted that she had voted Remain in the Referendum. Sharp listeners would no doubt have guessed from the outset this this was not a totally impartial contributor.

    Light moments, however, quickly turn to darker ones.

    The BBC on the 6pm R4 News headline leads stated that the EU have announced for the first time today that a No-Deal Brexit on 29 March would result in a hard border between Northern Ireland and the Republic. Only later in the Bulletin does it transpire that Margaritis Schinas, EU Chief Spokesman, said that it was merely his opinion and the word ‘might’ was used. Quote: ‘Mr Schinas told reporters at Tuesday’s briefing: “If you’d like to push me and speculate on what might happen in a no-deal scenario in Ireland, I think it’s pretty obvious – you will have a hard border.” ‘ Also only in the depth of the News broadcast itself was it mentioned that Leo Varadkhar, Eire’s PM, had suggested a way around the problem might be a bi-lateral agreement between Eire and the UK.

    There are two good examples of at best anti-Brexit scaremongering, at worst dishonest newscasting, from the BBC.

    Jesus of Nazareth instructed his disciples to be “As wise as serpents and as harmless as doves.” Brexiteers will have to be exactly like that in order to win the struggle for Independence.

    We are up against apparently overwhelming forces although they are in reality a small minority of the minority of 48% who voted Remain. Military force apart, they do hold a lot of political and social power as we saw last week with the Anna Soubry incident. We can leave the EU but it will take miracles outside our control, miracles from Heaven itself, to achieve it.

    At midnight tonight, only 66 days to go.

      The commons sits until 14 February then again from 25 February . In present circumstance there are not a lot of working days for remains to interfere with our leaving in accordance with the Act .

      If the enemy try to get the A50 date changed maybe we can get Hungary to veto it .

      As you say – it will take a Miracle . Perhaps as MPs in brexit constituencies will be reminded – forcefully – what the constituency voted for and the limitations of their future should they go against their wishes .

          Fed, it’s amusing to note that ‘doxy’ is an archaic term for a hooker or mistress. How appropriate, given that some journalists apparently have prostituted their talents (if any) in this manner!

          The word appears in a poem in Shakespeare’s ‘The Winter’s Tale’:

          ‘When daffodils begin to peer,
          With hey! the doxy over the dale,
          Why, then, comes in the sweet o’ the year,
          For the red blood reigns in the winter’s pale.’

          Do you think the bard would mind if I rework it?

          When daffy Beeboids sin and smear,
          For pay they ‘dox’ till all hopes fail,
          We pray their ‘Tweets’ will end this year,
          (The bloody s*** – stains all in jail).

          P.S. Yes, I do know ‘dox’ is an abbreviation of documents. I’m just having a bit of fun.

            Great post, Helena! Historical accuracy and all that!

            I wonder how many people realise that our precious UK democracy – currently under threat from a minority of a minority who voted Remain in the EU – comes from the Reformation. It is, to an extent, built on the blood of martyrs like the Church.

            A European movement, note, that Reformation against an overwhelming corrupt power.

            Hmmmmnn, now where have I heard similar recently?

            We need a bit of fun to lighten things, right now. The minority of minorities are going to fight dirty. The winning Leave majority must stay calm and peaceful and uphold our law and democracy.

            I still find it hard to believe that the night after Clinton conceded defeat and over the following weekend, young Democratic voters along with various anarchist groupings, went on demonstrations that turned into violence and destruction of property in various cities in the USA.

            We face the prospect now in the UK, US and (I hope & pray not) Europe, that when Elections are held, if the losers are of a certain political persuasion, a minority will dispute the result with demonstrations and possible all sorts of tactics an even violence all the way until the next Election.

            A country cannot live on that basis. It is a return, if not to the Stone Age, to at least Tudor and pre-Tudor times, to the arbitrary rule of the individual and his or her sword.

              I share your view for Europe. The alliance between Germany and France signed yesterday , is opposed by many in France and Germany. France for obvious reasons, as it doesn’t want to become the lap dog of Germany. Germans OTH are ever mindful of their Nazi past.

              But we in the UK have always muddled through. As Prof Peterson points out, we have done so quite successfully for over a thousand years, and avoided the carnage of Europe in that same period.

              We just do not have the efficiency of the Germanic people, or the intellectual rigidity of the French, to carry out any political project with thoroughness. So yes, we will muddle through and be out of Europe properly.

              So I have faith in the British people to balls up, but not too thoroughly, as that would not be British, but well enough to make our enemies to go crazy, and no one knows what to do.

                NCBBC, yes, Peterson is right but for the UK – actually just England at first – it has been a long trail (and trial!) over 800 years. We are not really quite finished yet: reform of the House of Lords is probably the major item on the ‘To do List’.

                It could be argued, I think, that the UK escaping the job of being the wedge between Germany & France and France & Germany might also be a massive Brexit Bonus that most have not yet thought of. I feel that is why we were allowed in in the first place.

                You are right about Germany’s recent past weighing heavily on the national psyche. I still need convincing the Angela Merkel was merely driven but guilt and/or the need to make a humane gesture in unilaterally throwing open the borders of the EU and Germany.

                Where do you think the leadership power now rests in the EU? Most people assume it is with Germany but I’m not so sure.

                And do you buy into the view of Daniel Hannan, was it in a newspaper today, that the EU wishes to punish the UK for leaving?

                  Germany would be the country that comes to mind. But Germany is haunted by its past. Any attempt to assert its authority would be viewed askance by its neighbours. So all Germany can do is to shoulder burdens, financial and migration, as a way of seeking forgiveness for its Nazi past. But even this it has to do with eager willingness. Any attempt to be assertive leads immediately to calls of Nazism – as Greeks did to Merkel a few years back.

                  Then there is France. France has viewed itself as the physical, intellectual and spiritual heart of Europe. Visions of Napoleonic grandeur are never far behind. Macron thought of himself as Jupiter – a god of gods. I’m sure this vision of his must have lead to smiles in the German chancellery.

                  But Macron, with a busted economy, and Yellow Jackets on the streets, is a busted flush.

                  France is out of the running. Germany, with a dragging economy, a revitalized Right (conjuring Nazi nightmares), is in no position, or for that matter desire, to be the leader.

                  Looking around, who could be the leader? Obviously a nation who carries a big stick. A nation that expends a lot of money and men to defend Europe. A nation that holds the Balkan quagmire at bay, and stops any Russian pressure in the East. A nation that is aggrieved that Europe has signed up to an oil deal with Russia, and is making its displeasure felt in no uncertain terms. A nation that is causing great turmoil in the German chancellery.

                  The way I see it, the USA still holds the “big stick” in Europe ( EU inclusive). With Britain, it holds too all Europe’s security keys in its hands.

                    NCBBC – The US still provides the military muscle, via NATO.
                    Your analysis is correct. That is why France and Germany have decided to cuddle up together and all but form one state. Two days ago, Macron and Merkel met in Aachen to sign a special treaty. (The crowd wasn’t impressed; the politicians pretended they didn’t notice.)
                    One would have thought that ‘ever closer and deeper union’ was going apace, but no, this special treaty was apparently needed.
                    Ex Czech President, Vaclav Klaus, criticized what he called a ‘secret treaty’ to create a single superstate within the EU. Who is the new ‘enemy within’? Klaus asked. Is it anyone who doesn’t share Macron/merkel’s vision of Europe and its values?
                    So, two-speed Europe is becoming a reality and the UK did well to get out -if it is, that is.

                      Germany and France can cuddle up as much as they like, but they cant match the muscle and global power of the USA. F and G hold no terrors for Russia or China.

                      In Europe, Its worth noting the “adulation”that Pres Putin got on his recent trip to Belgrade. The only thing that prevents Russia from interfering in the Balkans in support of a Slavic and Orthodox Christian Serbia is the USA. Remember Churchill’s warning about the Balkans – a simmering cauldron of hatreds going back 1200 years. It has the potential to ignite a global war anytime. It will drag in Turkey and Israel too. No can restrain Russia, Turkey and Israel at the same time except the USA.

                      Does the EU seriously think it can keep a lid on the Balkans, and thus keep Russia, followed by Turkey, and then Israel from asserting themselves .

            “Or why do we pay the royalty millions of pounds each year only to side with traitors?”

            It’s not a matter of siding with anyone. It’s within the power of the voting public to abandon mindless party loyalty and to stop sending the wrong people to Westminster. Too many of them are far too secure in so-called “safe seats” and have become intolerably arrogant over the years. There are fresh faces out there, we know who they are. Nigel Farage, through UKIP, gave us the referendum without a single MP (apart from Carswell, who doesn’t count). Imagine what a few MPs could have achieved, with or without the UKIP infighting.

            Both main parties could pay a heavy price for the current state of affairs at the next general election but if the public sleep walks into the voting booths once again, it’s down to them. No point blaming somebody else. If we want democracy, we should use it, instead of just being content to know that it is there.

                Even if it falls through this time, we will always have the ability to leave the EU provided there is a UKIP equivalent to vote for. I think there will be because the EU is clearly in decline. But the voting public have to get off their backsides and vote for it.

                The two main parties deserve a good kicking at the next GE. However, if people insist on voting for the same old, they deserve all they get. We’ve got the leaders we deserve.

              I put myself in the position of such an MP in this position. So here I am. Comfortable in a safe seat, a good salary and expenses, and plenty of adulation worldwide. And without warning PM Cameron called a referendum, and put me in a difficult position. No more safety. If I vote to remain, the Brexiteers get me in the next election. If I vote the other way, the Remainers will not forgive.

              Really I don’t have a choice. Either way I’m stuffed. Best thing to do now is to stand as a “man of principle”. Against my principles, but times are hard. I will make my position clear that I respect the decision of the British people, and will vote accordingly. Then take my chances with the fair minded people of Britain. Yup thats the way to play it.

    I thought you would want to know what’s going on around chez Nibor’s gaffe , because TV Licensing obviously want others to know . Their latest threatogram has the usual window in the envelope that clearly says to all and sundry that happen to deal with my post the above statement , implying that I’m up to no good .

    Now a proper , pukka organisation that sells a service would either take me to court , or give up on a bad debt . What body would spend hundreds in postage sending the same message to the same person over a period of decades when it’s just ignored ? Who would send that same message to umpteen other people who ignore it ? Why not send the letters to Santa because it’s just as profitable ?
    But then Santa would get irritated by these missives , and only put a piece of coal in the BBC’c Christmas stocking , after all the BBC’s goody goody wish list of such things as world peace ,complete eradication of Western dominance in world affairs because of global warming , equality of everything , no racism ( in western countries , in other areas its a BBC approved piece of culture ) , Brexit bad etc etc .

    Every so often the bbc morning email tempts me to reaquire a tvl.

    This morning as top news I learn that Ant and Dec are emotional after a win in another interminable luvvie group fluff awards win, and….

    “ Can you ever be best friends with an ex?

    “I met my ex – the great love who shoved my heart in a blender – at university,” writes Marie-Claire Chappet. “He was instantly attractive in that maddeningly generic way: tall, dark and handsome. We were a one-night stand that somehow turned into a friendship, that somehow turned into a relationship.

    “We were together on and off for three years after we graduated, with weekends of coupled-up bliss spent holed-up in his London flat, punctuated by fierce arguments about commitment. Our break-up was as convoluted and protracted as our time together: full of false starts and regretful make-ups.””

    Ok, maybe not.

        I’m afraid the the media certainly has not nailed its coffin shut, mores the pity. No matter how many times the MSM are exposed to be knowingly distorting the facts, suppressing the facts or outright lying , they will not be held to account. The MSM are the propaganda arm of the governing Globalist elite who need them to help keep the white people people accepting of Globalisation even though it is very bad for ordinary white folks in the West. Although the MSM is losing credibility it can still influence enough dummies to make it a powerful propaganda weapon . We on this site may see straight through the lies but millions of voters still swallow them whole . In the USA the MSM is funded by Globalists who really don’t care much about the financial performance , if they did care CNC would have shut down long ago.
        The battle between ordinary people and their Populists leaders on the one hand and the Globalists and their dupes on the other , is being fought on very unequal terms. I note that in the US the people are increasingly taking direct action against the MSM because they have no other way of holding them accountable. Boycotting any company that puts its advertising with the MSM is one way of at least showing what you think but if they are bankrolled for other reasons it won’t necessarily shut them down. Others ways may need to be found of accomplishing that. In the UK the BBC doesn’t have any financial concerns so only a License Fee strike would have any impact but leftists like May and a Corbyn would fund them from direct taxation.

    ‘The “febrile” atmosphere around Brexit COULD be exploited by far-right extremists, the UK’s most senior counter-terrorism officer has warned’

    By the way, a word to the wise for our counter-terrorism cops – COULD I please just add this notion:

    A super-villain of indeterminate nationality (with metal hands) COULD establish a base within an island vulcano, steal a nuclear warhead and hold the world to ransom.

    But that’s the plot of a James Bond movie.

    And I guess it isn’t an argument against Brexit or the political Right

    But let’s not be too hard on this cop. He also said ‘he was concerned about the possibility of radicalised fighters returning from abroad’ – but I suppose that’s just not the stuff of BBC tv screamer headlines.

          It’s a sad old rag these days, most of the ‘readers’ only look at the pictures of bums etc, and the good old term ‘Daily Mail reader’ has long since vanished. Advertising Managers must be a bit worried to say the least.

          The DM is following the pattern of Eastenders, The Archers etc and becoming a bit of a lefty yawn. The BBC is so good at this, that as Honestus says earlier, nobody really takes them seriously any more, and as soon as the gobby twonks like Robinson, Sopel etc. start mouthing off, the off switch is applied. (That’s if it has been turned on first of course)!

    Why (almost) all maps are wrong
    https://www.bbc.com/ideas/videos/why-almost-all-maps-are-wrong/p06yh7nw?playlist=debunking-modern-myths

    A nice bit of white self loathing from the BBC. They start by incorrectly stating the “digital maps are based on Mercator projection” but they are correct saying Mercator projected maps have scaling problems in high and low latitudes.

    They then show the Greenland projected size compared to the projected size of Africa and then compare the UK to Madagascar. In both cases it makes Africa look smaller and they then state “Many believe it endorses European imperialist attitudes by shrinking countries in the southern hemisphere…”. Then right on cue the previous white skinned hands are replaced with black skinned hands.

    Who the “many”, who believe European imperialist attitudes are the cause, is not specified. It could be BBC staff and Owen Jones but I would only be guessing.

    It would have been nice if the BBC had in fact stated “many believe Mercator projection was used to give sailor the most accurate maps when sailing near the equator (as in the Indian and Chinese tea clippers) and ships to the West Indies” but that would have been based on historic fact rather than an internal BBC white self loathing comment.

    “There are a lot of politicians that feel very vulnerable” from radical protesters, says anti-terror police chief Neil Basu. “It cannot be right that somebody going about their lawful business is intimated or obstructed”.

    Given the pig pile the BBC decided to join with a bunch of kids who had done nothing wrong, a bit rich getting precious throwing terms about with those who have bodyguards to protect them from those they seek to disenfranchise.

      Thankyou for your service Neil Basu and all officers who have brown skin, we understand that you often don’t get the support from Indian-sub continent communities that you deserve, so in some ways life is more difficult than being a white officer.
      Background info on Basu is scarce, like no middle names and father is described as “of Indian origin”
      He was the one the Met used to make announcements when Welshman drove at the Finsbury Park,Muslim crowd
      and I guess it may have helped to see that police commanders were not all white.
      If Basu had been able to stop white nutters going crazy then the old Muslim guy would not have died.
      Likewise Basu gets the credit if Islamist attacks are prevented, but part of the blame if they get through.
      His words today of “look over there far-right” does make it look like he is signalling he is more concerned about attacks on Muslims, than attacks by Muslims.
      Surely police hours keeping tabs on Islamists are useful for preventing attacks , whereas police hours spent running around after Tommy or James Goddard for asking questions prevent no attacks
      ..and in fact make the situation worse as its unfairness might alienate random nutters and cause them to act.

    Apparently David Dimbleby got an award last night at the National Television Awards. In his acceptance speech he said that the BBC, “still holds a heart in the place of the British people’ adding it is ‘absolutely vital for our life.”
    Well I suppose the BBC was absolutely vital for your family’s way of life as it provided it (you, your brother and your father) with a wealthy income over the years that enabled it to maintain a lifestyle that few could ever achieve.

    What gave the show away for me was agent Islam of Faisal more or less ploughing the bBC narrative last night as his departure,from sky, nears.

    What ,of course, Faisal and the rest of the bBC did not explore in any decent depth was the EU stipulating a hard border in Ireland………

    The police are worried that Brexit has caused the rise of the far-right. What absolute tosh. How has this so-called threat of the far-right manifested itself so far? A man who taught his dog to do the Nazi salute and a couple who named their child Hitler and embroidered their soft furnishings with swastikas. Strewth! Take cover everybody and be prepared to be beaten over the head with cushions. The rise of discontent in this country is not caused Brexit but by the lack of it.

      Yes that’s right they used the “I” word.
      Heads will roll.
      No pun intended.
      However they then went on to say 4 were by the “far right” and started to discuss this “increasing threat”.

      They then tried to make the link between “far right” and Brexit implying that they are expecting trouble if a no deal Brexit goes ahead.
      Well isn’t it the remoaners who are going to be kicking off then? I thought it was those ignorant bigoted Brexiteers who were the troublesome ones. Come on bbc make up your minds where this so called threat is coming from.
      Oh and I suspect that the perceived threat will be far greater should they not deliver on Brexit than if they actually do deliver on a “no deal” which is actually what we voted for.

          PG – I’m not sure we are in a much better position ourselves, as regards to military strength. I’m sure the personnel we do have are very professional – but for how much longer given the lowering of standards, and the MOD’s social justice warrior policies (look at the recent army adverts).

          We have a few frigates, an aircraft carrier with no planes, OK we have some subs with nukes – but no one to use them on anymore.

          We also have some Typhoons, old Tornado bombers and will be getting the ridiculously expensive Lighning II, with all its teething problems probably still unfixed.

          As for the army, what can we put in the field – a couple of brigades?

          It seems to me to be more of a token force, and even though our days of empire are over I’d still like to see defence taken seriously.

          Unfortunately our politicians have been content to let it all fade away while they pour money into the bottomless pits of welfare and the NHS.

    ‘Leaving the European Union would tip the UK into a year-long recession, with up to 820,000 jobs lost within two years, Chancellor George Osborne says.’
    Or this, circa @ 15/6/2016?
    ‘In the latest of a series of government warnings about the consequences of a vote to leave, Mr Osborne shared a stage with his Labour predecessor, Lord Darling, setting out £30bn of “illustrative” tax rises and spending cuts, including a 2p rise in the basic rate of income tax and a 3p rise in the higher rate. George Osborne, together with the former Labour Chancellor Alistair Darling, vows today that the hit to the economy would be so great if we vote to leave the EU that he’d hold a Budget with cuts and tax rises almost immediately.’

    Now the soothsayer extraordinaire sooths from Davos and introduces a pistol to lend drama to his latest……..prediction.
    ‘No-deal Brexit: George Osborne warns of the gun being held to the economy’s head’

    The loathsome ‘doctor’ is professor of ‘Black Studies’ at Birmingham City Uni. I can only imagine the inflammatory bile he feeds his students, stirring up grievance and race hate.

    The uni prospectus boasts that the course will ‘foster’ activism and ‘help students engage with’ activism. It aims to have a ‘transformative impact upon society’, ‘connecting you to projects and organisations outside of the University’, ‘decolonising’, bla bla bla.

    In other words a training camp for malcontents and sjw’s who will then get cushy jobs at the beebistan to wage war against whitie, paid for by us.

    Seems, the one held in Dublin came, not to a conservative, but (surprise) a liberal decision (on abortion).
    Other than being a device for yet further delay, we can see where this is going. Stella disapproves of JRM’s parliament suspension suggestion, as that would be ‘undemocratic’. Does Stella accept the Referendum result, or is she the one who is undemocratic?

        Last CS, we still have an old VHS of one of the first Comic Relief progs from 1985 or thereabouts.

        I keep meaning to connect it all up and watch what used to be quite a moving prog, until it was hijacked by twonks like Geldof and Bono. Even Lenny Henry was believable, but eventually succumbed to the rubbish spouted by Jonathan Ross etc.

        We haven’t bothered to watch any of the CRs for many years, as the ‘cherideees’ are so damned useless in getting any dosh to where it’s needed. If failed MPs like Miliband get all that money for heading up a charity, then that’s the time to stop giving anything.

        If we knew that the money was going directly to hospital wards in the UK, or perhaps the Air Ambulances, then such good causes may attract much more.

    “men” again.

    Currently not reported by the BBC. Search 0 results.
    Not on the Oxford page.

    The far left Wikipedia describes Breibart as far right.
    Breitbart has reports, every day, which the BBC does not report at once, or ever, in some cases.

      If the beebeestan won’t report it, it behoves us to highlight it:

      “Jail for Oxford Gang Who Violently Raped Unconscious Schoolgirl”

      Three men who groomed, raped, and carried out a campaign of violent child sexual abuse against a girl with no friends in Oxford have been handed jail sentences.
      Mohammed Karrar, 44, Bassam Karrar, 39, and Anjum Dogar, 37, were handed “life” sentences for crimes including 10 counts of rape, indecent assault, and conspiracy to rape carried out between 2002 and 2005, when their victim was aged between 14 and 16, at Oxford Crown Court.
      During the three-week trial, jurors heard the “vulnerable” victim was “lonely and friendless” when she was targeted by the gang, who forced her to perform sex acts in flats, vehicles, and public parks on themselves and on other men during their campaign of abuse.

        ‘who forced her to perform sex acts in flats, vehicles, and public parks on themselves and on other men during their campaign of abuse’.

        I am eagerly awaiting the trial of the other men.

        First ansd foremost if found guilty they should be castrated, and then deported-they will worthless individuals to their own kind in that state. Hopefully such action that may avert future disgusting behaviour. If and I hope we have a No Brexit Deal, the Politicians and that Government will find the guts to take such action and take no truck from the weeds that are running this nation or think they are.

    Latest islamic hysteria is over an M&S bog roll with, according to some lunatic muslim, the word allah embossed on it.
    Hence outraged calls for boycott, no doubt they’ll be burning M&S stores any day now.
    Er, no, say M&S, it’s an aloe vera leaf motif on an aloe vera bog roll.

    It will be interesting to see whether M&S capitulate to this latest muslim nonsense and change the design. If so I shall boycott M&S.

      Have no doubts chaps and chapesses, even as we scrawl on our wall here, M and S execs will be engaging upon a rapid change of designs, tooling, and disposal of work in progress, warehouse stocks, goods in transit etc.
      For when the muzzies shout jump, the likes of M and S cry ” how high”

    Following on from the above story, it seems islam and toilet paper have history together. Until recently it was forbidden, according to the article below.

    (It might be a spoof – it’s hard to tell the difference, and i’m not going to waste time researching such nonsense.)

      Water is best, but its OK with three stones to wipe yer bum no less.
      Oh how I would like to ask Mishal Hussein how many stones she uses, and do the BBC supply them. Perhaps this explains that sneer in her voice.

      2 – He may purify himself using stones. Doing istijmaar or removing impurities with stones is sufficient. This is indicated by the words and actions of the Messenger (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him). With regard to his words, Salmaan (may Allaah be pleased with him) said: “The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) forbade us to use less than three stones for the purpose of istijmaar.”

    Talking of full-time offence seekers, here’s a story:
    When Dr. Samuel Johnson had finished his first English dictionary, he was visited by a delegation of “London’s Respectable Womanhood” who came to his parlor at Fleet St. and said, “Doctor, we congratulate you on your decision to exclude all indecent words from your dictionary.” To which he replied:
    “Ladies, I congratulate you on your persistence in looking them up.”
