Thread: Around the world News

  1. #1

    Around the world News

    Obviously in the UK the main news is... Brexit

    France, the gillets jaunes (yellow jackets)
    The French started this back in the start of November. Normally a one day protest. Before Xmas. To say "ras le bol" , we are "fed up" , high cost of living , petrol prices etc.

    The French love a good demo. Streets blocked. Roundabouts blocked. Normally burning tyres on the roads.

    Tractor tyres, where they get them from... no idea.

    They stop people going to work. Even if it's not their company who are striking... block everyone.

    Sncf strikes 2 days every week. In fact was 4 days because overlapping times / days. Revolving over 4 months.

    Now every weekend the gillets jaunes burn stuff, break stuff, shop windows, vandalism.

    The name comes from the fact that you must carry a yellow jacket in your car for safety reasons.

    New Zealand: the terrorist attack. Although some don't like the word terrorist.

    Germany : Bayern lost in the CL

    Whatelse is going on in the world?
    “We have to change, from doubters to believers—now.”

    Fucking hell.

    @Aldo

    wasn't the whole point of banning guns back in the day to stop this sort of violence? Now they're using kitchen knives.

    Years ago surgeons suggested all kitchen knives be rounded at the tip because nobody stabs carrots (most knife fatalities are caused by deep stabs rather than slash cuts) but there was uproar (or maybe it was apathy)

    They are even stopping the sale of single kitchen knives in shops here to try to stop it. It won't make a diffentec as you can go to a DIY store and buy all kinds of sharp hand held tools!
