    Also in todays news:
    Prime Minister David Cameron has ruled out making reparations for Britain's role in the historic slave trade and urged Caribbean countries to “move on”.

    Why would Cameron worry about stopping the Caribbean Islands from supporting Argentina's claim if, reading the belligerent MP posters are totally assured they risk nothing?
    Perhaps something about Argentina's increasing international support for Malvinas is causing some worries--in spite of all the self-assured declarations?

    Trying to divert the thread?

    Okay, I'll bite.

    I agree with him. No one alive today in Jamaica is the victim of slavery. No one alive today in the UK was involved in the slave trade. So where's the beef? This is just another attempt by the Jamaican PM to divert attention away from the crap job she has been doing running Jamaica, by beating her chest and playing the victim (sound familiar?).

    And if the UK has to pay reparations to 'Caribbean' countries then so should many West African nations too. After all, they were the ones that started the slave trade. They were the ones that attacked villages and kidnapped people so they could sell them. It wasn't Europeans doing that it was Africans.

    And then the Moroccans should pay reparations to Britain because they were involved in the slave trade and enslaved British people. Many Muslim countries were also involved in the slave trade, many of whom would have to pay reparations to India.

    And Italy would have to pay reparations to thousands of people around the world, and would China, and Russia, and even South America. All have had slaves at one time or another in their history.

    Of course Argentina can't pay reparations to it's former slave population because you murdered them all rather than set them free.

    People who live in glass houses shouldn't throw stones, should they?

    As for the ACTUAL story Mr Cameron is quite right to call these Caribbean nations out on their hypocritical stances. They can't demand self determination for themselves then suddenly support denying it to others?

    In 2011 a survey for the Jamaican newspaper 'The Gleaner' found that 60% of respondents believed they would be better off if Jamaica was still a British colony whilst only 17% disagreed. The results were remarkably consistent across all age groups with both 65 and over age group and 18 - 34 age group being 66% in favour.

    After several visits to the Caribbean, I can confirm that numerous people there say they feel their lives would be far, far better if they were still governed by the United Kingdom. I heard this on Trinidad, Barbados and St Vincent. They look at French dependencies such as Guadeloupe and wish they had similar arrangements.

    To be fair, we are building them a prison for 25 million pounds, presumably that will work out cheaper than keeping all the Jamaican gangs convicted and serving their sentences in our overstocked prisons.

    For me I would just deport them, there are plenty of ways to spend 25 million pounds at home. We do some very stupid things at times.

    i cant remember the last time i took a slave or was a slave for that matter, nor my grandad or his grandad before him, and i am sure the british government abolished slavery many many moons ago and was key in both their capture and liberty along with many other countries at that time.

    how far do we go back on slavery...what about romans who took celtic slaves? Arabs who raided and took english slaves? Vikings who also took english slaves? and many many many more instances around the world, are these any different??
    if so how???

    Bottom line, history is history and im sorry but i didnt make it!
    I am not going to pay or apologize for a time i did not live in! get over it!

    “And standing up for the rights of small islands, including the Falklands, to enjoy the self-determination that has been so hard won in the Caribbean,” he said.

    Good, it's about time some of these small Caribbean countries were called out on the Falklands. They can't expect the Commonwealth to support THEIR freedom and independence if they don't support other small countries like the Falklands.

    So you are going back to the old argument that because Britain have done wrong in the past they should do wrong now, if you are going to use this argument you must agree that it would be wrong not to let the Falkland Islanders determine their own future?

    Britian had the largest empire the world has ever seen....yet this Empire was disbanded peacefully and the former colonies are now determining their own futures.

    With the exception of the US War of Independence and possibly Ireland, each of these countries were supported in their quest for self-determination...unlike the other European Empires which we only disbanded due to losing wars.

    Britains history of supporting the self determination of its formar colonies is second to none.

    I see the trolls think they are having a “field day” - they are SO misinformed.

    The book “ Call me Dave” has been proved to contain a lot of vitriol based on Lord Ashcroft attitude to Mr Cameron. As Wikipedia says “Reception to the book was mixed, with some criticising the story as ”salacious“. In The Guardian Michael White wrote that the book was a ”Jacobean revenge biography“ and described Ashcroft as ”one of the more bizarre figures on the fringes of British public life“.

    Although Ashcroft's introduction to the book claimed it was ”not about settling scores“, and that he had sought Oakeshott's involvement to ensure the book was objective, the book was widely viewed as an act of revenge on Cameron for declining to offer Ashcroft, a major Conservative Party donor, a significant position in government..Allison Pearson, writing for the Daily Telegraph, argued that the nature of the book suggested that Cameron's decision not to promote Ashcroft had been ”entirely justified“. Oakeshott argued that they had held back publication until after the 2015 General Election to avoid damaging Cameron and the Conservatives in the polls. Roy Greenslade, writing for the Guardian, acknowledged the book might have had more impact in the run up to the election, but argued that ”most of the negative stuff is historical, unsurprising and of little real consequence“.
    A spokesperson for the Prime Minister said that they did not ”need to dignify the book by offering any comment“. However, Cameron appeared to refer to Ashcroft and the book with a joke that he had had an injection that day and had been told to expect ”a little prick, a little stab in the back“”

    As far as the Caribbean members of the Commonwealth I believe we'll sea much more support for the Falkland Islands as Canada will also put pressure on them.

    Trolls - stop crowing! Boludos!

    “maybe the fatty tw@t should do the same to support chagos right to self determination”

    Dipshit-the foreign office is examining the best ways that the Chagos Islanders can be economically and structurally supported to return home-so albeit belatedly they will gain self determination in time. Some don't see a difference between Chagossian and Falkland Island self determination unlike Argentina which is a would be- back to the 19th century- wannabe colonialist nation.

    UK is progressing, while Argentina is backpedalling up it's own ass.

    Does anybody know exactly how many Chaggosians there are?

    By Chaggossian I mean former inhabitant of the Chagos archipelago that was evicted, or one of their direct descendants?

    And out of those how many have never accepted “full and final” settlement for their movement?

    And out of those how many are actually looking to return, and how many are just asking for more money and/or British citizenship?

    How many of those wanting to return have the means to survive on land where there is no drinking water? Where the industries that employed them are long since gone?

    When the American base closes in 20 years time the territory is supposed to revert to Mauritius, well that is what they claim we shall see if the UK agrees.

    The BIOT is actually not on the list of UN NSGT, so no automatic right of self-determination for them.

    In the unlikely event that life has suddenly become sustainable of the islands and they can return, we could see a dispute between them and Mauritius as to the sovereignty of the Islands.

    I beg you pardon mr. Professor but despite you are correct in spotting the missing of the “You” and the “'” that I never use for technichal issues regarding the programming of some forum application that hacks posts entries as the (') symbol or character is reserved to declare variales, etc. bla bla

    I disagree with you in the use of the “language of another country”, countries may or not adopt a language as “the official language” but that is not necesary true as in the case of US.

    So languages belong to people that use them every day, transform them, readapt them to new circusntances, etc, etc.

    with your grammar in some places in england, people will ask you... Wha' did you say??? try again please broda'. haha

    Stop watching so much BBC, real english people don't speak like that. haha

    Are you an English teacher perhaps feelling so much pain while seeing people like me destroying your precious language???

    Don't bother with that anymore Mr. professor, that have already happened long time ago in GB.

    So the “may I go to the bathroom” you are still teaching to the girls at scholl now has changed for a “I've to take a Piiii” after a few drink in a club. haha

    The “I am having a lot of fun” now sounds like “iia go' a lo' of foon”.

    Try to have a conversation with a girl from Newcastle Ne England and you will know what i'm talking about.

    “thank yua very mooch luf” haha

    So don't bother with grammar anymore if you need some help for basic survival language skills in England just call me.

    Here you first lesson:

    Do not bother with your complex grammar structures when you try to get a hammer from your neighbour, he will look at you as you are comming from mars.

    You just have to say “ 'ave ya go' a 'ama, mate?” that plays the magic trick and the guy will bring from his shelter the punching stuff with a big smile.

    Can you see how simple it is?

    What part you don't undertand??

    The part in which i say why I dont use some times the possessive 's, etc.???

    in programming stuff you use variables that has to be set with a value or empty value for future manipulation on the fly by a functions for example.

    Some chars are reserved for that use like “” or ' or ; etc

    examample:
    $name='';
    $user_pass='';
    $user_post='':


    When a function tries to grab what was stored in that variables if it is not properly filtered and contains a reserved char can produce errors, truncate chunk expressions, etc.

    That errors depending how was set the interpreter like PHP can be shown publically and that provides a road map for hackers to exploit the aplication, access database information, etc.

    Now about English grammar and other stuff...

    Britain has many different dialets around 30 and accents and they speak grammatically different depending where are they from and their background (working class, upperclass, etc)

    So a normal girl for example would say ”Me and ma friends went to the poob yester-daeee (Where poob is pub, ma is my and yester-daeee is yesterday)

    That kind of english heavy grammatical structured pompous upper RP type also called posh accent like an actor performing shakespeare is old fasion, demode, not used anymore just for a BBC presenter 30 years ago or for an old politician, etc. someone below 40 years old will sound just ridiculous on these days.

    Can you imagine someone learning old spanish from books talking like Miguel de Cervantes on the streets of Madrid or Buenos Aires???

    Pretty ridiculous, isn't it?

    Now below you 'ave a good explanation about cockney accent (explained by fake Jason Statham and BTW 'e is not even a real cockney speaker) which is the accent used by the working class in London and with spanish explanation.

    So you would undertand why “have” turns to “'ave”, “hammer” to “amma” etc...

    Just to let you know : yes - I have been to Britain. Several times. Was not born there, but I hold a British passport (amongst others) and spent the first 12 years of my education at a traditional English School. I am aware of the fact that some local accents sound strange to a foreigner, and that not everyone may have had the privilege of a good education, but trying to emulate those common mistakes, and then brag about it, doesn't make you any smarter.

    examample: A NEW WORD TO ME

    If you are writing to an English speaking forum then you should use standard English, spelling and grammar so that your message can be understood without ambiguities.
    The newspapers need to be universally understood by all readers using the standard text. Broadcasters speaking nationally should moderate any accent which may be difficult for listeners in other regions. Local radio/TV can deviate from this as their local audience are used to their own dialects.

    “....they wrote above “Was not born there” Don't to see something missing there???”'

    In “Was not born there”, anyone with reasonable knowledge of the English language, would know that the pronoun “I” , first person singular, is understood. But don't bother to learn, just keep on us entertaining us by your ignorance.

    Kindly explain the purpose of your presence here?

    Do you have anything to say about the request made by the British Prime Minister to members of the Commonwealth to support their friends in the Falkland Islands in their quest to fend off the nonsensical behaviour of Argentina?

    We all have to pity Silly Booger for his childish, nonsensical use of our wonderful language. It is so obvious that he feels a deep sense of inferiority because he cannot speak or write English, the world's most popular, most widely spoken, most powerful, most influential, most respected, most revered language. We cannot help feeling sad for someone who fails to understand that every time he writes his gibberish he is displaying his lack of education. May we suggest that you try communicating in Spanish or Portuguese. Pobrecito.

    Don't flatter yourself . I'm not upset. Just thought you might have a brain large large enough to understand I was trying to help you. You don't.

    “It's not sad” ????

    “Now if these countries could only break with the UK and institute a proper form of republican government....”

    There have been several polls in Jamaica where the majority would welcome a return to be governed by the UK because of the rampant corruption in Jamaica.

    Fact- if you commit a driving offence there a bribe to a police officer will see you alright.

    The Jamaican government does not look after the poorest in its society and the divide between poor and rich is large.

    If you are shot in Jamaica, you have a reasonable chance of survival as the doctors are constantly treating gunshot wounds.

    The poor there use guns because they can't get any poorer and do what is necessary to get money.

    “The British countries in the Caribbean”

    The BOTs in the Caribbean support the Falkland Islander's right to self determination.

    “Now if these countries could only break with the UK and institute a proper form of republican government....”

    Like the 'proper' form of government in Argentina?

    Now there's a fine example of republican democracy at work, if you don't like the judiciary- well just murder a judge or two.

    Hepatitis - the brains trust - and a fine example of the old adage “a little knowledge is a dangerous thing”

    Your mind is like a parachute, if it doesn’t open it will kill you!

    He’s got a point Danny Boy, English exists in many forms from Papuan Pidgeon to Glaswegian, you appear to have mastered none of them.

    Indeed you seem to be trying to invent your own form of Gibberish.

    You should note that whatever form of English is used locally, everyone understands the Queen when she speaks.
