Live Election Day Thread

Who are you all voting for then, come on?

I'm predicting a well-hung parliament. As in, it's gonna be even more split than last time.

Hoping for a surprise Labour majority though. Can't have the tories running a muck for another 5 years for fúcks sakes.

If you need any more reasons as to why you should not be voting Tory (which you shouldn't), please visit my twitter account @thedailybmuk
There should be more than enough information there. Yes, this thread is biased

I have asked admin to unflter you and others.

At work I do not log on and see your posts.

Even though you Insert Sizzle and hec know I filter you, All of you keep referring to me, so does that make you loons too?

I also see your attached rep!ies to other posts, so get over yourself, as I am not seeking you out!You bore me, so I filtered your posts, but like others, cannot stay away😀

I will review how filtering you and others works, as some said this was an option, but it appears that filtered or not, you comment on me anyhow😉

But, you now use Filtering to moan about me, even though I have been filtered by some of yeez.

Asians require much higher scores in America to get into Uni than white people, Hispanics and blacks

-----------
Yup, someone left out white in the previous comments-- not sure why?!!

Just shows that discrimination exists because Asians are seen as over dominant in academia (yet surprisingly under represented in governmental circles)
----------------------------------------------------------------------
It's sort of discrimination in that not all races are treated equally but the intentions are 'good'.

They're just trying to level outcome stats by race. Asians and whites do best so they get a higher bar and blacks and native americans do the worst so they get a lower bar to hurdle.

Which is very wrong in principle, but not sinister.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Or true.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
This is an easy one to look into, it's 100% true.

I don't know why you'd object, it's a left wing 'victory' for racial equality of outcomes.

Whilst not a fan of 'positive discrimination', i think ' the best man for the job' is normally exactly that but there is no denying that bias, deliberate or unconscious exists.
The debates around Oxbridge class/race diversity and female directors and pay disparity proves that there is under representation in certain fields, its been an issue for a long time. How is it tackled if its not acknowledged and processes put in place to combat it?
If not quotas then how do we get a balanced field?

Just split the thread into the two echo chambers and be done with it.

Here he is.. signing in an out to see what's been posted by people he himself filtered.

Facking proved it then using admins name.

TBAB is definitely a loon for not being able to decide if he wants to filter someone or not.

Like an okey kokey with his fingers in his ears, pulling them in and out.

Facking loon.

Generally I think the 10s have been way better than the 00s which were way better than the 90s which were way better than the 80s which were way better than the 70s which were way better than the 60s which were way better than the 50s.

It is naturally sorting itself out despite what governments try and force on the public in terms of legislation or threatened imprisonment and thought police.

More information becoming available to the public and time is the solution. It won't be solved in a day but forcing people to change before they're ready or using authoritarian government to force outcomes slows the process down more than it helps in my opinion. It just breeds animosity and results in countermeasures to fight the changes.

Jordan Peterson does a great talk about forcing balance. He mentions one of the Nordic countries where they promoted men and women equality in the workplace and a drive to get women into engineering and other typical make roles.

It didn't work. Women, just like men, have tendencies for certain jobs. So, what to do? Force people to do jobs? Women must be engineers? Asians must go into politics?

Let people be. Hire the best for the job, that is it.
