^Danke!

Do they have a term for "son" / "daughter of Fuhrer"? Increasingly relevant to democratic succession processes...

UlanBatoroji,
There was just one Führer in German history. I do not think they can survive another one. He did not have a legitimate child (there have been rumors though). So there is no question of a son of the Führer. That tradition is from North Korea, so solly.
Now the title you used was Reichsführer. That title was used by the head of the SS, mainly by Heinrich Himmler. A subordinate title, certainly never used by Hitler ever.
But all that is OT and I am afraid the the BRF Führer will kick me in the testimonials. So let us stop.

Survivors of our hell
For the best part of a century, the British Raj sent Indian dissidents and mutineers to a remote island penal colony in an 'experiment' that involved torture, medical tests, forced labour and, for many, death. Cathy Scott-Clark and Adrian Levy have unearthed official records detailing the scandal, and heard first-hand accounts from those who survived

Endless saga:
https://www.theguardian.com/politics/20 ... s-brussels
Boris Johnson confirms he will seek Brexit delay, says Brussels
Donald Tusk says he is ‘waiting for letter’ that PM promised in phone call after Commons vote

Boris Johnson has confirmed in a phone call with the European council president Donald Tusk that he is sending a letter requesting a further Brexit delay beyond 31 October.
Despite the prime minister’s insistence that he would not “negotiate” a further extension of the UK’s membership of the EU, he confirmed on Saturday evening that he would be seeking such an extension.
“Waiting for the letter,” Tusk tweeted. “I just talked to PM Boris Johnson about the situation after the vote in the House of Commons.”
An EU source said that in the call between Tusk and Johnson at 8.15pm Brussels time on Saturday the UK prime minister confirmed that the letter would be sent within hours.
Tusk is expected to consult EU leaders on how to react. “This may take a few days,” the source said.
Officials in Brussels said there was no doubt that an extension request would be granted, despite the prime minister’s attempts to throw doubt on such a decision. A decision on the terms could be taken later in October to allow for events to unfold in London.

Josef Mengele was a saint compared to these British doctors. Don't let the madarchods forget it.

Any UK hakims around? Why not look into a way to get these doctors de-registered retroactively?

The HC will be closed to their disappointment, why not dig into a palak paneer at India Club in Covent Garden instead.

Should I be surprised that the Home Sec has been largely muted over these processions.

Just as they deemed it not above their station to censure the GOI recently.

In all the India-Pak tiffs' the Chinese go unnoticed.
There seems to be a well entrenched 'Triad' networking involved in modern day 'slave labour'.
And if any is caught the publicity is kept to minimum so as to not to upset the 'XI Emperor'(Remember the Queen was upset when he visited UK and the underlings were rude in their behaviour)

mean time in a bizzare and tragic scene right out of a movie ( it was a jackie chan movie i think )

https://edition.cnn.com/europe/live-news/essex-bodies-truck-container-dle-intl-gbr/index.html

Chinese officials will make their way to Essex after it was confirmed that the 39 people found dead in a truck at an industrial park Wednesday were all Chinese nationals.

“Staff from the Chinese Embassy in the UK are en route to the scene to verify relevant information,” China’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs announced in an online statement.

Shortly after, the embassy in the UK released a statement on the tragedy.

“We read with heavy heart the reports about the death of 39 people in Essex, England. We are in close contact with the British police to seek clarification and confirmation of the relevant reports, “ the statement read.

Donald Trump threatens to drop ISIS jihadis 'right at UK border'

Donald Trump has threatened to drop hordes of ISIS fighters “right at the UK’s border” because of Britain’s lack of help with the US operation to catch the caliphate’s leader.

The US President announced Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi had been killed after a special forces operation on Saturday night in Syria’s Idlib province.

Asked what support the US had received in the planning and execution of the mission, Mr Trump thanked Russia, Turkey, Syria and Iraq but said European nations had been a “tremendous disappointment”.

He said he had been putting pressure on European leaders to take back jihadis who had been radicalised in their countries but had seen no action taken.

Trump says Islamic State's Baghdadi 'died like a dog'

“They came from France, they came from Germany, they came from the UK. They came from a lot of countries,” he told the gathered press.

“And I actually said to them, if you don’t take them, I’m going to drop them right on your border and you can have fun capturing them again.”

Mr Trump also suggested the US would not help “capture people that want to go back to Germany, France, UK and other parts of Europe”.

“They could walk back – they can’t walk to our country. We have lots of water in between our country and them,” he added.

Scores of jihadis from the UK and at least 60 British children who fled Isis-held areas are said to be languishing in Syria’s camps.

Mr Trump watched the raid on al-Baghdadi’s home from the White House. He said viewing it was “as though you were watching a movie”.

The president said the IS leader had been under surveillance for several weeks.

He said that during the raid, US forces “flew low and fast, and were met with gunfire at points”.

No American personnel were lost in the encounter, he said.

Tackling al-Baghdadi’s was one of the Trump administration’s top national security priorities.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson said of the raid: “The death of Baghdadi is an important moment in our fight against terror but the battle against the evil of Daesh is not yet over.

“We will work with our coalition partners to bring an end to the murderous, barbaric activities of Daesh once and for all.”

EU agrees to postpone Brexit until January 2020 in blow to Boris Johnson
The EU has agreed to delay Brexit until next year.
Donald Tusk announced that European leaders have agreed to Boris Johnson’s request for an extension until January 31, 2020.
The decision is a blow to the Prime Minister, who has said in the past he would prefer to be “dead in a ditch” than miss the October 31 deadline.

======== br meet 20 years ago?! ===========

I registered knowing that a certain anniversary was approaching and maybe something could be arranged.
20 year anniversary of the first ever BR meet

As well as finding some paperwork a few weekends back I found a .mbx file only last weekend.

The paper copy of an email says;
Bombay Brasserie Fri 24th Aug 2001

But the .mbx was a better memory jogger.

First meet was 8th July 2000
I missed this I became a member a little too late for that meet…there were only 3 attendees

So 20 years is next year, unless any other global locality can predate this UK meet?

Farnborough Meet was in 2004… this email is showing header but not the body..
pictures were taken at this meet, I am sure.


CAMBRIDGE (mentioned for a meet venue) is a rubbish place…
One it is very difficult to get to, stuck in eastern england.

Also it is probably now just a pretence of being an educational establishment..
Orcsford (a posh english pronunciation of Oxford) and Orcsbridge (ditto Oxbridge)…..

These institutions have been overrun by #FLICSs Fake Liberals Islamist Communists…
Orcs is better way of describing the nature of these red and black flag types….
Again see the previous Hitchens post…

No doubt the River Cam and surroundings/buildings are very beautiful as is most english countryside…
But the rest is rotten and decayed…

I hope Indians, in the years ahead, can build educational institutions to usurp these rotten places

Kudos to all those on this site: because I heard the term “LONDONISTAN” here first many moons ago….

My point is, a meet should happen at a convenient locale… there is nothing Great about Cambridge any more…
or any other part of Britain.
Sad to say

Another Labour MP raised 'allegations' of human rights in Kashmir, reflecting the concerns of his constituents at PM's Questions. BoJo replies that the govt position is not for us to prescribe what should be done, rather it's a bilateral issue as has always been. For those who are not aware, this is the last week of parliament before they head for elections, so just rhetoric to garner some votes by Labour again.
