Hahahaha that cool I think they should just have to play along for them to be free cause if it was my house I will arrest them immediately.
"They had been hired to carry out a client's fantasy of being tied up in his underwear and stroked with a broom.". Weird, but whatever you're into 😂
🤦🏻♀️ if that happened in the states, they would have been shot.
I hate when that happens.
Just kidding okay that funny
Don't kink shame them!
Coree Howard this sounds like an The Onion article
The UK has grooming gangs, Australia has brooming gangs.
Joshua Hu and another one, what is happening
Shiran Levy אני מתה 🤣🤣
Kink shaming BBC laughing at and trivializing sexual orientation? Seriously? Are we actually living in 2020 ffs, vile 🙄
Imagine waking up to find two guys with machetes over your bed. "Sorry mate" shake hands and leave 😅
Guess they got swept off their feet.
This. This is the kind of news we need right now.
It has to be among the three best made-up excuses for committing a crime.
😂😂😂 what kinda news story is this for the British Broadcasting Corporation! Whoever has posted this you can guarantee is pissing themselves laughing 😂 fair play to the guys whatever makes you happy 🧹 you only live once!
I'm willing to stroke any of you with a broom for 5 grand.
"It was a commercial agreement to tie up and stroke a semi-naked man in his underpants with a broom."
Just when I thought 2020 couldn't get any weirder. LOL
That's why I believe that organizations like the UN, WHO, FATF etc must be closed. They have failed....
I hope Aung San Suu Kyi will meet her destiny in the international court in Haag! And that the Nobel Peace price will be taken from her!
...and the World accept this ? In this day & age ? Very disgusting, disgraceful, sickening and disturbing. Where are these leaders of the so called free world ?
You dont need to be from a particular class religion or race...all you need is a human heart to feel the pain of those who suffer.....last weak what happen with George Floyd everyone woke up in his favour thats great but peep into the happenings of these powerless helpless humans.....thats why we are facing wrath of God........
Rohingya crisis is just another sin left in Asia during Britain colonial era. The best solution is for British to compensate these Rohingya with resident status in Britain.
The world is the slave of money....
He who has money , can also have power and law beside them.
Rohigyas fled to our country for Myanmar's brutality but the finger is pointed to us , saying that , we cannot provide their all needs tht's why they are fleeing from refugee camps
I still wonder,why our PM gave them shelter in our country!Oh yeah,she was hungry for an award!Now she can feel the burden...
Myanmar is responsible for their sufferings and death.
WHO and UNCHR are dumbed silence on this, why finance this crap organization.
Fun fact the BBC don't tell you: The Rohingya started the trouble in myanmar to begin with. ✌🏻
What is wrong with us? How do we allow this while shrugging off Cummings?
Where is UN???.,..... won't America talk about their rights???....like they are doing for Hong Kong.....oh I see These poor people got nothing to offer to the west....so their lives doesn't matter.....& This country Myanmar surely have got problems.... otherwise why so many rebel groups are active in there???..... Should have done something against them....No one should stay in any others country except their own ....These people are Burmese they deserve to stay Myanmar.....
UN , WHO all these institutions are taking donation money to live like royals, driving in limousine, wearing expensive clothes, housed in palace
And not helping the ñeedy at all.
So sad .People should start to help one another
Our nation try priority to get justics
After WHO & HK are invaded, another mission is coming by 5 letter country.
With so much injustice lurking around, don't expect this natural calamities will leave very soon.
Why every single video clip I try playing on my phone from Your website gives me :"this content doesnt seem to be working please try again later". If I cant resolve it ill simply go to another news company
كل مايحدث هناك بسبب الصين 🇨🇳 لان اقليم راخين يمتلئ بالثروات المعدنية وانشاء ميناء كيوك فيو العميق هناك فكان لابد التخلص من سكان اقليم الروهينجا لانهم عائق في وجه الصين
Too much politics affect the lives of the innocent, the poor 🙏🙏🙏
Not any different to the white farmers in South Africa being murdered at the instruction of the government. The UN has failed miserably.
Where are all the good humans that help people!
Where are the protectors?
Where is this world going?
Shame on you BBC. Dun believe BBC news. Reality is far different from their planned story. BBC and all oversea news media are writing the story based on the demand of their main sponsor.
Injustice anywhere in the world is injustice everwyhere in the world!!
Rohinga people needs a international Support
Myanmar state sponsored terrorism. Elected government neither protecting nor any action taken against terrorist activities.
We are not supporting the act but You should ask uzma khan why she was keeping illegal relationship with the girl husband .
l am really disappointed, BBC is reporting this kind of news. What happened to your investigating repotting. One should understand our religion and culture before describing this so called actress a victim. Please BBC we have some expectations and you have some standards.
Pakistan is busy in begging and condemnation of Indian government works.
I wonder if she's a descendant of the great Genghis Khan.
BBC why interfere in our country matters. CIA funded?
This is because the women father is a real estate business tycoon and giving a good sum to media for his business advertisement. No media cell wants to loss that much money. Pakistani media is a" bicthes of the riches"
Wife beats cheating Husband and his mistress... this could be a more befitting title.
And yet the man will get away with it, as usual! Because it’s always only the woman’s fault, he wasn’t the cheater! Money talks!
3 rich women ??? What does that mean?? Is the actress poor ??? 🙄
Omg BBC covering cat fights now, yhis is a new low. Next they will be covering Waqar Zaka and Laddan Jaffri 🤣
BBC ur half baked cookies aren't selling in Indian subcontinent.
Be India, Pakistan or Bangladesh.
We know ur reporting so biased.
We know our media better than u do. Any incident that doesn't make it to media bcoz it is of no significance.
My dear pakistani's u have a beautiful country and people, stop relying on BBC for any of ur local news. U know it better than anyone
No one would believe what goes on in places like Pakistan and India , stop trying to normalise them to UK normality. Go and report on whart happens everyday there.
Uzma isn't an actress. She is an OLX item changing hands regularly. So let her face the change.
As our beloved Molana Tariq Jameel said almost all of our media personnel are liars.
Well, the two women who beat Uzma Khan are the daughters of real estate tycoon Malik Riaz. The daughters have fled to London in private jet 1 day ago.
Home wreckers don’t get much sympathy but she didn’t make a vow before man & God. If the man can’t be held accountable, that just makes the woman madder. It’s not right.... but if I was in the wife’s shoes.... I might have done the same thing.
I swear I saw something like this happen in HS. Human nature is more alike than different, even across oceans.
Finally even bbc covered this news but our pakistani media is for sale and who ever pays higher gets their side
this is a story of the rich and powerful getting away with violence
stop creating diversion by making it a love affair gone sour
Pakistan is a crazy country with crazy people just as Uncle Sam
What happened with the actress is certainly disgraceful.
But I have known people who would actually accuse and beat up the wife, because her husband had a mistress. They are quite supportive of the mistress though.Perspectives 🤷🏽♀️ what to say ?
BBC should report: That Man lost both his wife and the mistress just saying 🤣🤣🤣
A woman beaten by women... this woman should start learning MMA..
When there's a global pandemic and America self-destructing daily.... Not much will be noticed
Pakistani mainstream media is under the controll of Pakistani elites and Pakistani establishment (army).
In Pakistan media is a puppet of rich elite class and also doing propaganda against without any facts
She is also not “self made.” She was born with rich celebrity parents, she has a platform of followers (notoriety) from reality television and was helped tremendously into her business. That’s not the definition of self made, which is typically associated with someone putting blood, sweat and tears into their business. She grew up with money and has probably never had to wake up before noon.
Who cares about numbers ,leave Kylie alone ,people are dying out there ,focus on that . How ironic that FORBES revokes her Billionaire status right after she spoke out about racism ,right after she spoke about brutal murder of George Floyd. We see you
"The magazine said the family went to "unusual lengths" to present its youngest member as richer than she was."
What? Are you saying a 20 something know nothing is scamming the world with hyperbole and imagery? Wherever would you get that idea?
I knew it way before they published. Media misled people not the Kardashans, before we hard about coronavirus, she sold out most of her company, kichin
So does Forbes just ask your family n friends about your wealth? Is...is that how this works? You don't verify company values or anything?
Well good for her, and he fans. However, I hate when many of the news sources reported that she is amongst the youngest of billionaires, and many positive reporting of her being billionaire.
"I've never asked for any title or tried to lie my way there," she wrote. ....yes you did. You literally provided them with all of the data they used to rank you and now they’re saying you lied. 💁🏼♀️
Still can't understand why this Kardashian family is important to our society! 🙄
Now she can make another season on this topic. Plastic Queen, should know that plastic is useless after single use
Self made billionaire with daddy's millions $$$$
I’m not a fan at all but I think she’s doing a lot better than most of us.
Ya she’s only worth 500 million hardly enough to keep her in knickers#prayforkyliejenner#❤️ like totally
Funny how she wants to speak up NOW after being called out. Where was your honesty when Forbes was praising you as a “billionaire” KNOWING you weren’t. People would’ve found a whole new type of respect for her if she was honest.
It is so sad that these people even reach the news, not to mention the amount of money the world is feeding them. Such a shame
At $900m networth, there is another glorious moment for her soon!
Finally Forbes realized this. Most of the beauty moguls equity dropped by 80% during this unprecedented time. Forbes was always blatant about Kylie self-made journey hence they missed so many pages in the transition.
Um, I'm glad to see a news story about something not depressing, but at the same time I'm wondering why anyone would care about this...
I knew it was false reporting because Donald Trump's net worth is yet to be verified through his many bankruptcy filings and so forth. If his tax returns and holdings are yet to be released to Congress, then how can Forbes possibly verify his ranking as richest this or that, or millionaire this, or whatever listing he is reported to be compared to others?🤔
That being said, Kyle's numbers are still substantial but it just comes down to who you ask.
I think I speak for all of us when I say: no one cares, Kylie
Seriously, BBC, at this period in time, you are writing about the Kardashians? You may want to figure out what kind of news outfit you are.
How can anyone trust Forbes? To say they relied upon heresay and not checked facts themselves. What lazy, incompetent staff do they have? Even we silly people had our doubts. So Forbes is about giving good reviews to those who bribe them
She's still going up against the wall regardless I suppose, but nice try.
Kylie jenner has less than $900M. And the author of the article doesnt have $1M in her bank account
What!!!... the family who defends natural and fresh beauty, the same people who prise intelligence and kindness over vanity and looks and the ladies who are a role model of a purpose driven life lied to the whole world!?! ... 😲 gasp!!!
Hahaha now we know she has to live off of only 900 million instead of a billion! Haha jokes on her!
Coronavirus did not break the system. It exposed a broken system.
Their private property. It would have been nicer to donate bikes, but nobody is obliged to be generous, including companies, or to be exposed to multimillion-dollar lawsuits.
Maybe if every prospective recipient signed a waiver saying thank you and no liability...
Welcome to our litigious nation. Care to fix it? All you need is the White House and half of Congress in both houses, and of course some way to overcome the lobbying of every vested interest, including law firms that serve those members of Congress on occasion.
Yeah, good luck. Meanwhile, ashes to ashes, rust to rust
Guessing no one bothered to read the article where they looked at donating them “But given many significant issues - including maintenance, liability, safety concerns, and a lack of consumer-grade charging equipment - we decided the best approach was to responsibly recycle them."
Resources are finite, no company large or small should be able to waste on such a scale.
What an utter waste😡Should have been recycled🙂
To everyone saying they should donate them, it’s not possible. If a company donates defective equipment they may be liable for any accidents concerning it.
I'm ok with anything that reduces the amount of cyclists on our roads and pavements
Uber and cyclists. Two of my least favourite things. We'll call it a draw.
Its the cycle of modern big companys rather than finding a way to solve the problem they create a bigger one.
Should have donated them to children in the third world that have to walk very long journeys to reach their schools...very tiny brains...
Uber sucks, we don’t they donate the bikes? I will never use an uber!
Utter horseshit. In the sale to Lime, any liability would have be easy enough to transfer, and it would have been easy enough to donate, repaint, or service these bikes, which are specifically designed for long service lives. There would have been countless volunteers in cycling communities across the USA that would have stepped up for this.
Of couse, Uber's profit is in their slave-driving ride-share programs, and protecting that is their top priority.
Have they not heard of recycling??
Could have given them to keyworkers struggling to get to work due to lack of public transport! What a waste.
They could give them to a bike repairer if the concern was genuinely about maintenance
Yall need to see how the homeless and tweakers destroy these bikes for parts on hwy 99 and downtown Seattle lol
It’s a pity that Uber Jump,
Santander Bikes ,
To name just a few Pay & Ride Cycles in London, could Destroy The Copious Amounts of Drug Dealers that Steel These Bikes & Not The Bikes.
Normal business decision relating to safety and liability. Nothing to see here, please move on.
Aggravated Bike Death... Let's all mourn the destruction of inanimate objects LOL
yeah, sure....more like 'we dont want people to have free bikes as it will stop us from milking cash out of them later' at least they could be honest about it.
A bike can change a life in some countries. What an utter waste of valuable resources
Waste throw away society, could have donated to people in poverty
They could have found a way to donate these bikes to communities around the world where transportation is more challenging.
At least they destroyed them. When i was in Shanghai a few years ago there was multiple giant lots with bikes stacked super high.
Could have donated them to a poor country in Africa where they would be well maintained.
I usually get new consoles at least a year or two after they come out for the inevitable newer model. Launch hard drives are never big enough, and I have tons of games from previous generations that I'm still catching up on.
The ps4 was a a great console with great exclusives and it was truly for the players... i hope they continue with this one too.
Wow i cant wait to see the new settings and views 😀
For the preyaaz :- Professionals still use personal computers. (PC's). -
I’ll gladly give Sony my Stimulus , this is the only company in America that actually has been helping the United States
Imagine if it will play PS1, PS2, PS3 and PS4 games.
Xbox for life
I hope it’s better then the games at launch for Ps4, because those games were the weakest games I’ve ever seen at a console launch besides maybe the Xbox1. I hope the five has backwards compatibility as a feature would be great to compensate if it’s a weak launch.
Sony is the best thing that ever happened to Millenials, everything just is rock & roll!! From owening exclusive rights of publishing Michael Jackson's music, then leading the 3D gaming revolution with PS1, to super cool smart-phones that are just so under-rated due to people being falsely flooded by other over-rated dumb-phones and misslead to other franchises... Sony is simply the best!
PS5? Definitly getting one 🤟🤟
Batman Arkham Game LESHGO
This the best news for the day I love this.
RIP hereafter smartphones will replace PS
"In last episode we talked ssd. In this one lets talk cpu"
What does the thing even look like? I have no idea if Sony has released official photos of the console.
So now the PS5 has a reveal date, we should be seeing all the rumour round ups and leaked photos of Playstation 6 in the next few days
Wow...how dated...you'd be able to 'cut the testosterone with a knife'? Obviously good old Jim forgets that nearly 50% of gamers are female these days🙄
If you read the article properly he goes on to say that a small mark should be placed on the credit rating so lenders know you’re struggling
It would be to help prevent people borrowing more money in this crisis, more money that they can’t currently afford
Typical Nationwide we can't give you holiday during this difficult period because we care about you so much , let us repossess your house so you will have one less problem to worry about. It's all in your favour, no house no problem with mortage - remember our generosity.
People who didn’t take the holiday should have a negative score. Nobody knew where the world was going when Covid hit. Taking the payment holiday was the most sensible thing to do regardless of income or savings.
I think they are just trying to prevent people taking a break if they dont need to. If you do really need the break then you will have to have it if it leaves a mark on your credit history or not, if you are having the break just because you can it might put you off.
They took a payment holiday so what? Those mortgage payments will still be repaid regardless of whether they take a holiday or not.. It's not like they will never pay the money they're just taking a temporary break from it
This isn't fair! Some people will be really struggling at no fault of their own and have no choice to apply for more mortgage holidays! Typical banks!
If there was flooding that ruined crops it would affect the farmers credit rating if they couldnt keep up with payments. Banks aren't charities
Someone has forgotten the tax payers bailed all the banks out in the last recession!
It's not the bloody borrowers fault is it if they've been furloughed due to the virus, typical fat cats as always
This is just smoke screen, cos in the long run they will earn more interest on the deferred payments.
I don’t think credit reports have ever been fair
No one can take on more lending without being throughly assessed.. and if someone is being assessed properly then any sign of struggle will be evident and clear without any mark or sign on credit file.. I have been through enough mortgage applications to see this
The Nationwide and other building societies as well as banks regards thier insurance contacts have also changed thier idea on what is covered on insurance for travel . The virus is now classed as an unknown and any other that follows. So if on holiday and you get an unknown ailment in future your not covered . So before you pay out for travel insurance ask them to clarify in writing an unknown ailment .
You could go on holiday perfectly fit having had all your injections etc and cleared fit by his / her Dr to travel. But whilst on holiday what if a person gets cancer or Malaria all of a sudden is that classed as unknown. I am sure it would be to the individual having being declared fit by his a doctor to travel !!! So where does an individual stand amongst the jargon of insurance cop outs . They want your money but not willing half the time to back it up . I thought Insurance was in the risk business or us the risk the underwriters not getting thier bonus or bottle of champerd at Christmas 🤔😏
All that profits made from 2008 by banks gone to CEOs and shareholder . Now taxpayers will have to pay again
"If someone is struggling, and if there is no sign on their credit rating, they could go out and take further and further loans, which would not be in their interest".
But still why let the facts get in the way of a good headline.
Everyone knew it would have some impact
Nationwide is not a bank. Just sayin’
They made a 466 million profit. I really dont think the greedy buggers have anything to complain about considering how many others business's are making a loss, closing down or making people redundant. It's only a payment holiday. It's not gonna be written off it will still be paid back. What is there problem
Lenders can see you’ve taken a payment holiday regardless of whether it’s on your credit report or not, so it could affect you regardless of any temporary mark on your file. This should’ve been made more clear to people who took out these holidays when they were initially offered - I feel like some people will have taken one “just in case” (perfectly valid thing to do) but could’ve managed without it, and now could be excluded from the best deals and rates in the future because it wasn’t made clear that it can still affect your credit options without leaving a note on your file.
And why? ???
The last time financial institutions found themselves in a hard place. ..It took the government to bail them out. ..or probably they prefer another market crash. ..still fresh in the minds of hard working folks 🙎
Banks should just be ashamed of them selves...we are going through a national crisis and they make out that they are doing people a favour and giving them a break from payment....although the interest is still being added to their account.....instead of being greedy why not just pause the account and just add the length of the mortgage break onto that persons mortgage... absolute joke
The interest paid will be higher over the long haul and which person could predict this. Absolutely ridiculous (from someone who is lucky enough not to have needed a break but knows many that have)
Nothing has been done for renters
And banks should repay the debts of 2008.
Plus it has to be paid back . Payments go up mounthly when mortgage Holliday finishes . Doesn’t get added at end off Morgage payements
It’s hard to send your kids to school as you’re not sure if it’s the right choice, for fear of infection.... BUT you’re also not sure whether to keep them home as , as a parent you’re working too ( and thankful that you still have a job) and don’t have the time to ‘properly’ home school! .... some are also forced back to work as frontline workers and have no choice!! .... everyone is struggling with different choices! Whatever choice you make it is for you and your family! Do NOT feel guilty , you’re doing your best !
It's down to the parents at the end of the day and they shouldn't be judged what so ever! My daughter is in year 6 and won't be going back... I won't risk not only her physical health but also her mental health with what they are doing in her school. Couldn't care less what people say 👍🏻
Do what u think is best for your situation, dont worry about what others think ! Parents shouldn't be penalised for sending there kids in ! If u dont want too then dont, dont sit and judge like ur perfect parents !
It's ultimately the parents decision, everyone's circumstances are different. I won't be sending mine back they come first right now
Parents should not be judged. I have been judged and called some horrific things. Been told i shouldnt have a child as i was still sending her to school my daughter should be put into care, im a virus spreader (community carer) and money hungry as i had to work. People need to keep their bloody noses out. Everyone has their own reasons. After all it would have been worse if i left my 6 yr old at home alone.
I can’t comment as a parent, but I can comment as a teacher (and definitely not passing judgement on parents who decide either way).
Schools that are re-opening have worked incredibly hard for the last few weeks to make sure that they will be as safe as possible for children and staff. Yes, schools will look and feel different and children’s experiences of coming to school will be strange at first, but you have to remember that teachers are the absolute experts in making children feel calm, safe, happy and reassured even when things are different.
Good luck to all parents regardless of whatever you’re choosing to do on 1st June.
I am sending mine back as I’m having to go to work in another school (as a key worker child). Am I happy? Do I have a choice? I’m not happy, but I’ve not worked every day we’ve been off, but have been paid, so feel I don’t have a choice. School won’t be school for children going back - is it worth it? I’m not sure 🤔
It's what is right for each individual family, no one should be judged either way! My son is staying home - he doesn't deal with change well - but half his class are going back for work, mental health and many other reasons. I don't think there is a wrong answer here.
I'm keeping mine home due to medical issues and the fact I feel it's too risky to send them back yet everyone is in totally different situations so whatever works for that person good luck
What’s the point of sending the kids back for a few weeks? Are they actually going to be learning anything productive? And with a lot of risk still there?
For many it is far less about the risks to the children, or the staff, and far more about the environment they would be returning to. The lack of social interaction, the restrictions on their movements and age appropriate behaviour. Primary school should be an enjoyable experience, not an experience of a life in prison.
Fact of the matter is - It is no one else’s business 🤥. Families are all different with very different circumstances.
I’ll do me ... you do you!
We are not worried by the virus, but we will not send our children back into an atmosphere of fear and face masks.
I live on a small island of about 150,000 people on the east coast of Canada. We've had 27 cases. None were hospitalized. None died. We have no active cases. The schools are closed here until at least September.
No one is in the wrong, every parent has their kids best interest... if you are sending your child to school, that’s fantastic.... if your keeping your child at home, fantastic... no parent is in the wrong xx
I've got a child in year 6 who is going back and a child in year 1 I've decided is not. It's not because of the virus it's the emotional effects it could have on her. Children at that age can really struggle to understand why they can't get close or hug there friends and teachers that they have missed so much. I've been called stupid for the decision I've made but at the end of the day it's my decision just like the next person!!! Don't judge just because people have different opinions
What is wrong with people judging. Depends on the county, the circumstances and so much more. Too many horrible people in the world!!
The risk now and the risk in September will be much the same. The risk to the children is small, greater the risk to the teachers. But do not think social distancing is going to be affective when everyone is back to school. However they can not stay at home for ever...
As a key worker, my child has attended school throughout the lockdown. Now schools are open and mine is year 1, I will still continue to send her to school. I have no option but to. Everyones situation are all different. If I could keep her home, I would. I see both sides of this debate
BBC News I feel like I need to highlight your inequality in this article. Do children not have fathers? Are fathers not faced with the same decisions and issues as mothers? I am a full time single father and I am in a situation where I too have to decide about sending my child to school but you have focused completely on mothers and that is unacceptable.
There will be judging and opinions, but everyone has their own views, circumstance, and reasons for keeping their child at home or sending to school, and what's right for their family, some have no choice, let's respect those views, and at least let this time of lockdown not go to waste, and what we've learnt from it, and made sure that support, respect, and love has won, let's show our children that and make sure whatever decision we make, it's a positive, they look to us for behaviours, and reactions, and how we respond. There's no right or wrong way, let's just support eachother in whatever we decide. I am a pre school teacher, and parent. We shall be there with smiley and positive faces next week, to greet those children, that we've missed so much x
Sending mine back that can go (one is already back) so over other people's opinions. Doing what's right by my kids and that's that.
Your kids .....your choice simple !!
it’s not compulsory so no reason to judge .
My kids are “key worker kids” and our schools have done an awesome job keeping themselves and our kids safe . Mine will continue to go and even through the summer hols if they still have provision .
The only way to survive parenthood is to ignore everyone else’s opinions. Stay firm in what you know is right for your family and child and ignore everyone else.
I’ve worked part time in a school through lockdown so my kids have gone to their school on those days. This will continue. Do what you need to do. Some people are making a choice of sending or not and others have no choice due to circumstances. Stay safe and don’t judge.
Truly funny how just a few days ago, Trump and his allies were complaining about taking away their freedom of speech. When he posted fake news. And got checked for it. Now he’s actually the one going after our freedom of speech.
Treat trump like everyone else. He is actually worse then every one else. It is true, he uses lies, conspiracy theories, slander, and every other disgusting derogatory comments to stir Americans up, create divisions in an already fractured society.
I do not understand the fuss. If twitter gets problems in the US, it can migrate to Norway, to Denmark, to Finland or one of the other countries in this world that truely have press freedom. We are in the virtual realm.
For years now Twitter has heavily favoured left wing ideology and deliberately targeted conservative voices and many who refuse to accept the woke agenda.
They have to decide if they’re a platform or a publisher as they can’t just continue to have the best of both worlds and control the political narrative.
donald trump's war on twitter began the moment he was held to a standard of decency.
Twitter is no longer a forum and can now be considered a publisher. A forum cannot be edited but a publisher can edited and is liable for it's content
Unless Twitter closes his account for violating their community standards, he is still getting preferential treatment.
He should stop sending childish messages, he is supposed to be the president of the free world and not some spoiled teenager, sending tweets from his bedroom because nobody else will listen to him.
It was bad enough that he continued to spread misinformation during a lethal pandemic, but then he challenged Twitter head on. A massive global brand like that will not back down.
It's time IMPOTUS was treated to the same rules that apply to everyone else. This is a good step toward pushing back against fake news.
Twitter finally works out that Trump is no advocate of free speech ... Just hate speech and inciting violence ... Tactically they calculate that Facebook can host this bile for once ... ? Twitter will not go away but any future President will steer clear Twitter ... Job done
It’s a deflection from the 100, 000 plus Coronavirus death in the United States.
I'm amazed that Twitter receives federal funding
Now we will see Trump turn on Twitter the way he has with everyone else who has disagreed with him. He will go out of his way to destroy the company. What a sad little man he is
Apparently, by them doing that, they are no longer a "platform", but can now be considered a "publisher". I've heard that changes alot of things...none good for the ex Platform.
100,000 deaths so far and...this.
Empty vessels make most noise.
Trump in a nutshell.
Never befriend a wild dog because its anger sees no friend ! An itesot proverb 😂
Of course, Twitter’s actions (albeit very late and insufficient - they should have entirely deleted Trump’s account long ago, for broadcasting Hate Speech) have nothing to do with restricting “Free Speech” - Rather, their actions are about highlighting Paid-For Lies.
Can someone pls tell Trump to forget about this Media issue...? Corona is still hitting the country, yet he's just busy focusing on Twitter...SMH
There are hundreds of actual threats to violence by protesters that aren’t being censored on Twitter. If anything they’re harsher on trump.
Twitter took the easy way out. If they followed their own policies, they would have removed Trump's post and temporarily suspended him from Twitter.
It's nice to see Twitter acting fairly, by treating Donald Trump like the rest of it's users. He should not have that kind of privilege on a social network, and neither should anyone else. If you tell lies and get caught out- tough.
"Israel must be destroyed" Iranian leader tweets but it wasn't censored the truth is they have gone far in trying to control the information people get
Twitter is absolutely biased with deceit. #LestWeForget
Meaning, God has always been THE MOST HIGH because he is the one who burns the weed. Right? I have always thought like this. I have now confirmed.
Mmmmh..cannabis is the holy spirit?
While I’m not interested in it’s effect or usage for getting high, cannabis has many very useful medicinal properties! I really wish these benefits could be separated from its intoxicating effects so the medicinal effects could be used to help people more often.
Perhaps they were seeking these healing effects as well as creating a happy & peaceful enviroment in the temple.
Or...maybe someone’s child snuck in and in fear of getting caught...what better place to hide this than a temple??
These “researchers” should be pretty proud of such an “accomplished” finding. 😒🙄 Such offensives and unnecessary input for the world.
And it came to pass the church bell rang out Bong ! Bong ! Let that be a sign ! someone exclaimed .. and the people arriveth at the door breathed out walked in and breathed in again . On that night there was much contentment and rejoicing ...
That's crazy! I did a lot of "worship" in high school. Sometimes, I'd even skip class.
If one reads the Bible, it is plenty obvious that for the longest time, the israelites did NOT live by the law in their sacred texts. They were always following the manner of worship of their pagan neighbors, and often behaving worse than them.
They say if you press your ear to the pillar you can still hear the spirits giggling about how they forgot what they were laughing about in the first place.
Fun Fact: Religion has been using hallucinogens for thousands of years to see their gods. Funny how none of them show up when you're sober.
Moses and the commandments, speaking to god, burning Bush.
Nah man this guy had a ganja Bush smoked some thought he saw god cos he was high AF flipped the spliff..bush caught fire explain losing the crop to the peeps below..... I saw god he told me to do it oh n btw here's the new rules.
Undoubtely ... some biblical texts suggest to us one fact; many years ago and then the believers and craziest worshippers sometimes were (sorry) surely not smoking but inhalating alucinógenos 😂...and then, maybe not only burning cannabis... and why they didn't burned only cannabis? ...Because (it's true) can't be forgotten the fact the countryside of Holy land is full of herbs (alucinógenas) 😔.
It is pure "fake news" whose objective is to deceive public opinion that Israel has a millennial history attested by archaeological objects. At the same time, all the people warned on the subject know very well that after so many years exhausted in the archaeological excavations of convincing clues corroborating the propagandist thesis of a true and not hagiographic / theocratic existence of a nobody Israel fade from year to year. So much so that several honest Israeli specialists on the land keep alerting to direct the use of human resources, financial means and other material means towards other fertile tracks and works, than to wallow for ideological reason and State to useless work without serious results.
And what do you all think that frankincense and mirth do ? Not as fast, more calming...but "God" is more substance use than most christians want to admit. 😉
That is what you call taking the high ground.
This ignores the fact that Tel-Arad was a counterfeit temple built in defiance of God's law to the Israelites. Not everything that went on there mirrored the old one (Solomon's in Jerusalem).
they call it Holy smoke, they need it to have the ability to see and speak with their Gods
Good job, BBC. You've just offended every nut who wants to impose their modern sensibilities on people that lived centuries ago
I’m pretty sure churches in the UK would see a huge rise in worshippers if they burned cannabis instead of incense.
Would give a whole new meaning to singing “Glory to God on high!” 🚬🎵🎶
How else would they have come up with all those crazy stories ?
Jonathan: God said, "Behold I have given to you every plant whose seed is sown, that is upon the face of all the earth, and every unfruitful tree for the requirements of building and for burning
This just in.
Ancient humans were using a plant that's been around since before the dawn of man.
Big [email protected] shocker...
This explains quite a lot of the old testament. Especially the more rambling bits.
Bible is pretty specific about what God wanted used in worship, anything other than what’s mentioned was done and considered “strange fire” most certainly.
And smoked it, along with eating magic mushrooms and drinking beer.
I mean, honestly, when you read those stories in the old testament part, some sound like a description of a LSD trip.
Maybe David was on cannabis, when he slayed Goliath, with his stone and sling
Bit of a biblical turn up that one!
Trump is desperate for a distraction.
But he's been working on starting a cold war with China for three years now. The United States is helping coordinate and finance the hong kong protests and always gave their political support.
The people of Hong Kong have legitimate grievances. Government corruption is so bad, is turning officials into billionaires as the average person is forced to live in a flop house, in tiny prison cell sized units due to real estate manipulation by the government.
The U.S. was right to support the protests at first, but to continue supporting protests in the middle of a pandemic reveals Trump has absolutely no concern for the lives of the people of Hong Kong. His support is completely disingenuous, and is only part of his greater anti-Chinese agenda. The people of Hong Kong are trumps pawns.
The USA has also frozen just like many other states, So Trump shouldn't think himself in a more advantaged position, Most nations are almost tormented the same, and he shouldn't think that the USA should always be the right state to plan for other states when the countries themselves have their own heads of their own states, we hate that kind of Backward thinking.
BBC turns to focus more on US than UK just because they think it would make people feel good especially when it's about Donald Trump. So biased
He desperately wants a war so he can declare martial law and stay in power. He is dangerous!
Trumps had enough of the world health organisation 🤣🤣 hilarious when only a few weeks back he was saying it’s nothing more than seasonal flu
Maybe USA should focus on fixing their own domestic issue and fight racism in their own county before worrying about China. Fix your own home first!
No he does right not the words I thought I would ever say, but they are putting pressure and taxes on one another China would naturally as any other country would,they would want to bypass that by trading goods though Hong kong
Not a Trump fans, but thanks him for bringing the challenges we face in Hong Kong to the world. This is not about Trump. This is about Hong Kong and the fate of us who are living in such political turmoil day in day out. ☹️
This will only mean the greater integration of Hong Kong into China and increases the likelihood that Shanghai will eventually overtake the city as a major world financial centre. Certainly not punishing China...
And he never mentioned George Floyd and Minneapolis in that brief appearance. Which actually says volumes.
Punish China by punishing Hong Kong? The finance system in Hong Kong is different from the mainland and Hong Kong government doesn't need to give their tax revenue to the central government. So this sanction seems more likely to punish Hong Kong people including those people who against the central government...
It looks as if Hong Kong has more to lose than China, if Mr Trump intends to pursue this course of action.
Maybe he needs to understand the Chinese concept of "face," rather than practising the narcissist's version.
China communist converted HK as identical as China, "one country two systems" is gone. It is a correct move to fix the loophole and teaches the communist a lesson.
Support from HK
That’s what they have to pay for taking away our basic human rights
His own country is a mess ,that’s where his focus should be .
The vast majority of Americans have a limited Intelligence level... like charging that cop for up holding the law... all them people rioting should be in jail
Any external drama will help to divide attention from domestic failure...
Regardless of your opinion of the man this is a good move. More Countries need to follow suit.
Trump can't run the US, what makes him think he can rule China? Just a smoke screen to take our eyes off the real issues of his response to covid and the racial tensions fueled by his statements and actions or lack there of.
It is time for the west to unite together and save Hong Kong from the aggression of China who does not know how to respect freedom which was granted unconditionally to Hong Kong DECADES ago.
He's out of his mind this days.
What happened to "America First"? There's a lot going on in the US, should mind your own business.
So he has a strong opinion on this but not on the horrific racism and gun child murders in his own country... Let's hope he can change things for the better for these other counties then...
While I in no way support China’s action in Hong Kong I think it’s rather ironic that Trump is speaking about it while calling Americans protesting police brutality “thugs” and advocating for a military response. 😒
I think that USA has enough of it's own problems instead of searching conflict with China.
Wasn’t timely in his arrest was it !
The arson and damage,whilst is totally wrong and those caught doing so need to be held accountable, it came to pass because of the lack of action in a clear case
Soon as it was known Floyd had died all involved should’ve been suspended pending investigation and soon as the witness statements and the videos/cctv clips came to light they should’ve been arrested on suspicion of murder
The superiors should’ve been all over it
An arrest in a timely matter would have been pulling him off George Floyd and putting him in handcuffs before he murdered someone, but I guess an arrest less than week later is the best we can get. 😒
I suspect the speed with which charges were brought against Chauvin has much to do with trying to stop the riots. Doubting that the FBI has completed their investigation...
3rd degree murder. Be interesting to know about his record of complaints. Should be classed as a hate crime. How anyone could do what he did in broad daylight and in front of witnesses says everything that's not good.
The justice demanded is long overdue. It's the pain ingrained because of injustice that's yielding this unrest. " I can't breathe" justice now and immediately!!!
Justice? Third-degree murder charge just as information comes out that the murderer knew the victim from his second job? They're trying to get this over as quickly as possible before it comes out that it was 100% premeditated, and the other officers involved were accomplices.
Was he not a criminal though or did the police officer just arrest him out of the blue for nothing??????
Yes, he should be charged. The thing is that without a major overhaul of a police force that stood back and watched this happen is changed it will just happen again. This needs to be dealt with and the system that encourages this sort of behavior needs to be changed as well.
If you are more bothered by how people react to injustice, than you are by the injustice itself, then you are invested in oppression.
Definition of fair. "treating people equally without favouritism or discrimination" Also definition of fair "Light and blonde". So you are screwed if you're looking for fairness in American society.
Long ago some were held in chains
Some fought this oppression
Some gained Independence
Some died in the process
Today some are still gunned down by Racists
Because we're considered to be lesser humans
Our Dark skin is said to be ideal for
Some still protest this ideology
By fighting for equality
Some are afraid this match will go on
till the edge of Time maybe.
1st degree Murder for sure. Just watched Trump live apparently giving an update about it. But he was talking about China. Shame on Trump. Shame on THE US POLICE SYSTEM
I think people who do practice of racism needs a lot of courage to. How could a person with a normal mental condiction look down to the others. I really despair about some abilities to do such a cruel thing. This is the world we are living, but it might change one day.
That's why you don't kneel on somebody's head I was taken to the police station in diabetic shock and they charged me with o u i driving driving under the influence even though my test results came back that I was a diabetic and I was having very very low blood sugar they could have killed me let them kneel on your head what if he was just not while or what if he was at a medical mental condition cops today a train like the Gestapo they're not professionals no reason for
These policemen do need charging with murder and accessory to murder. In the same breath I say the looters should also be charged. What they are doing is not for justice it is for pure greed.
Third degree murder charges for ONE cop, is not fair. It is woefully insufficient. No justice, no peace!
The "justice" needs to be severe! The other officers kneeling on the rest of Mr. Floyd's body need to be arrested also. They are complicit. The Med Examiners report sounded as though they are looking for a way to make the punishment less than it should be.
Except the charge is manslaughter basically and not 2nd degree murder (or worse), which it should be. He was aware this was leading to his death.
The other three are complicit to first degree murder. Why is only one person arrested and why is he being charged for third degree murder? That’s what you get charged for mistakenly running someone over with a car.
Why is noone calling for accountability of the Chief of Police for being slow to react and keeping this officer on the force with so many complaints registered against him?? Ooohhhhh...I just Googled him. Now I know.......
All it took was a few riots. This should have been done immediately as a case of police brutality leading to murder. Shame on the decision makers for waiting so long!
Listen. THIS IS NOT ENOUGH. Officers Thomas Lane, Tou Thao and J. Alexander Kueng are still free. Let's make the most of our momentum and demand they be arrested and charged now.
Hopefully you’re right Governor Walz but I don’t hold the justice system in high regard in these matters. The protestors are more likely to get tougher sentences than that murdering cop.
The officer and his partners deserves the book thrown at them for sure. But the looters also deserve to be arrested and charged. How does stealing and burning down businesses in your community help.
Fair! When has anything these cops done been fair,Sorry this cop and the other 3 need the harshest punishment as this man never resisted arrest or did anything in the first place to warrant what happened to him..
The more I follow this story, the more upset I become. I'm sorry you were taken in such a horrible way George, my heart bleeds for you. RIP sweetheart. The people that were meant to protect killed you innocently while the rest of us watched helplessly. This is so so sad😭 I hope justice will prevail 💔💔💔
Death in custody? Someone sat on his neck! This was murder nothing more nothing less. The fact that it was a policeman means nothing, George was begging, literally begging, he couldn't breathe and wanted his mama... just heartbreaking💔💔💔
Living in England, I am at a loss for words at the brutality . All 4 should be charged with murder, absolutely shocking, beyond words . RIP , justice will be done
He has been “taken into custody” — not charged with anything yet. For all we know, it was for his own protection.
The two other officers were also kneeling on Mr. Floyd, one on his back and the 4th officer monitored the crowd and tried to block their view. They are also guilty, arrest them!
I hope everyone involved is brought to justice and does serious time in prison. It's the least they can do for Mr Floyd's family and friends.
Not good enough, he should be in a prison cell for life, along with the others.
Now what about the other cops who watched him commit murder? If held to the same standards to the rest of us Americans, they would be considered accomplices.
I'm a US citizen. All of the officers involved in killing George Floyd should be CHARGED AND CONVICTED, as appropriate for their role in the situation.
Don't believe the hype. He's in protective custody, No charges have been filed against him and no proof of an arrest.
All of them need to be held accountable. They deserve to be sentenced to life in prison.
👏 Hopefully he gets charged for murder and stripped of his role, and those who was there to should be charged....
Good , need the others as well.. it was murder ... Wonder what treatment he would have got if was white !!! Trump must take some blame as his talk definitely causing more division.... Go from best president to the worst ...
He was murdered can you imagine the pain he was suffering the thought of losing your breathing and the continuous pressure on your neck the stress that this played on his body until he gasped his last bit of air my god I hope this man gets justice god bless you sweet man x
Losing his job is not enough. He held his knee to a man’s throat until he was dead while begging for mercy.
Getting fired is not enough! He needs to be done for murder ...
he’s already got away with so many other offences! 😡
Why only him?! Clearly the others were culpable.
By held I hope its meant while handcuffed with someone kneeling on his neck
So after all riots work!
Firing is not enough, they should be arrested and face the law. Justice is needed for the deceased.
Normally people would be in jail for at least a few years for murder, this is ridiculous
Now arrest the other three. Officer Thao, and the other two, could have saved Mr. Floyd’s life and chose not to.
So when is he going to jail for murder? What about the 3 other officers who participated and didn’t stop it?
Arrested or taken into protective custody?
Not good enough. Three more to go. And this better happen soon or more cities will burn
