To siphon off some of the drama clogging brit/pol/ over banning 22 stone for only 6 hours, this thread can be for

>posting mod applications

>making complaints about the direction of board moderation

>making suggestions about when to give bans and for what duration

>making complaints about existing mods

and whatever else you can think of that can't be dealt through an appeal.

Also mods are currently in deadlock over banning ttpw with two for and two against.

Britain would back new US airstrikes on Syrian regime targets – Fallon (VIDEO)

>Britain is “absolutely” ready to support retaliation by US President Donald Trump against Bashar Assad in Syria, UK Defense Secretary Michael Fallon has said.

>Fallon said action should be justified, legal, and proportionate, but said in those circumstances the UK’s support for US action by Trump would be unwavering. He added that the UK backed the US missile strikes in April, which Trump ordered after an alleged chemical attack by Assad.

Britbongs, my friends. From the outside, your country looks absolutely fucked. London's demographics are abysmal. Everything's fucked and it's all your parent's faults. You don't have an empire anymore but at least you saved the poor Jews from the evil Nazis, right?

Well, I have the solution just for you.

Muslims hate Jews. If you could talk a jihadi extremist into blowing up a synagogue, give him ideas, and maybe even detailed plans on how to make e.g., thermite, claiming you also love allah the magnificient and that's why you're helping him (but without leaving any traces behind), the media has two options:

1) Shoahs are part and parcel of modern life

2) Muslims have to go

Of course I'm not endors This is a great idea and you should do it if you want to save what is left of your once-great country.

Defence minister Fallon says government views on Brexit haven't changed

>The British government's views on upcoming Brexit negotiations have not changed following Prime Minister Theresa May's failure to win an outright majority at a national election, Defence Minister Michael Fallon said on Sunday.

>May called the election to try to strengthen her hand in Brexit talks, but her party lost its majority in parliament. She plans to lead a minority government with the support of Northern Ireland's Democratic Unionist Party.

>"Our view of Brexit I don't think has changed, we want a partnership with Europe, we want an agreement that maximizes our access to the single market, comes to an arrangement on immigration, continues the security cooperation we already have with Europe," he told BBC television.

Why the fuck don't you support nationalization of rail, mail and energy? The fucking name says it all: nationalization. All of these services were cheaper pre-privatization, wanna know why? Cause the profits have been privatized, while everyone bears the burden of costs, formerly privatized sectors are kept afloat by government subsidies and end up costing more than if the government directly owns it.

Then two policemen stopped me and asked me who I was with and whether I'd written anything about a helicopter into my phone, without explaining the technology of how they'd read my Notes app. After a friendly back-and-forth, they looked through my bag, checked my ID and business card and determined I wasn't a threat.

The only fully legal self defence product at the moment is a rape alarm. These are not expensive and can be bought from most local police stations or supermarkets.

There are other self defence products which claim to be legal (e.g. non toxic sprays), however, until a test case is brought before the court, we cannot confirm their legality or endorse them. If you purchase one you must be aware that if you are stopped by the police and have it in your possession there is always a possibility that you will be arrested and detained until the product, it's contents and legality can be verified.

The spurt in terror attacks, including the recent two in England, are pushing gun sales into record territory just months after predictions that the election of a pro-gun president would end the rush.

The FBI just reported that the number of gun sales background checks for May was the highest ever for that month, 1,942,677, a trend that will make 2017 the first or second highest year for gun sales.

But we can only scream rape with our alarm clocks, the only legal self defense weapon in the UK.

dear brits, yoou're a bunch a wonderful cunts and I love you all. I'm really sad for all the shit you're all experiencing and I wish nothing but the best for you. I hope you get better soon from your infection "Hmslmi-globalisti-N1" hopefully they can make a vaccine soon and put the country on some antibiotics or something.

also, thanks for accidentally making america happen all those years ago. so anyways I bring to you a really great thread that I made to make everyone aware of the shilling. really changes the way you look at everything.

peace m8s. oh come on… I have heard brits say m8. seriously. please stop throwing crumpets at me I'm sorry!

I have been noticing a trend on all the boards of 8chan, which you should be typing in the address as https://8ch.net httpS←-

that there are tons of data gathering threads disguised as "I'm bored so whats all your info".

here are a few examples of data gathering threads. you don't think they are building a profile on you? this is disgusting.

one of the biggest reasons why shills are using datamining tactics is because they want to destroy anonimity. It's that simple. this all goes back to what became of 4chan. namefags. goons. globalist agent involvement in chan website history. the constant infiltration of our very culture. the invisible war. we are percieved as a threat. they expected gamergate to be their final killing blow upon us, but it backfired. now donald trump is president of the united states of america. we are on the winning side and it's our job to root out evil by simply telling the truth. the truth needs no lie to support it. the truth needs no propaganda. truth is easy and simple because you just have to tell it like it is. that's who we are and that's what we do.

A Survation poll for ITV on Monday gave the Tories a nine-point lead, putting the Conservatives on 43 percent, ahead of Labour on 34 percent.

Sky News in a huff because Tories won’t give broadcaster access to PM Theresa May

>One of Britain’s biggest private news broadcasters has complained it is being deliberately denied access to the Conservative election campaign because it gave the Tories bad press. This is despite the broadcaster’s alumni now working for Theresa May.

>As May delivered her party’s manifesto on Thursday morning, a spokesperson for Sky News saw fit to issue a complaint about the level of control the prime minister imposed over each press event.

>“Since early in the election campaign, Sky News has not been getting live interviews on election issues with Conservative ministers,” a channel’s official said in a statement.

UK PM May's pitch to voters: market intervention and stiffer rules for business

>Prime Minister Theresa May rejected "untrammeled free markets" and promised to rein in corporate excesses in pre-election pledges on Thursday designed to woo not only her core supporters but also those of her left-wing rivals.

>With surveys suggesting she is on course on June 8 to emulate Margaret Thatcher's 1983 majority of 144 seats, May dismissed comparisons with her Conservative predecessor, promising to build a "Great Meritocracy" and a government for "mainstream Britain" as it leaves the European Union.

>"There is no 'Mayism'," she said. "There is good solid Conservatism, which puts the interests of the country and the interests of ordinary working people at the heart of everything we do."

Emmanuel Macron defeats Le Pen to win French presidency — projections

>BASED CENTRIST Emmanuel Macron was elected president of France on Sunday, winning more than 65 percent of the vote to beat far-right rival Marine Le Pen in a runoff vote, according to projections of the result by pollsters for French media.

>Speaking to supporters shortly after the result was announced, Le Pen conceded defeat but said her National Front party would transform itself to become the main opposition to a Macron presidency. “I call on all patriots to join us,” she said. “France will need you more than ever in the months to come.”

>Macron was expected to address a victory rally outside the Louvre Palace later in the evening. His stronger-than-expected victory is a stunning achievement for the novice to electoral politics, at 39 the youngest president in the history of France’s Fifth Republic. And it is the third consecutive setback for European populist parties who preached a mix of Drumpf-like nationalism and protectionism to voters fed up with conventional politics.

Afghanistan Ex-President Bombshell ‘USA Created ISIS’

Karzai says he holds the US directly responsible for the funding and orchestration of terrorist events by ISIS, and claims that the Pentagon does this in order to further its Middle East agenda.

“Daesh (ISIS) is a US product,” Karzai told Fox. “Daesh — which is clearly foreign — emerged in 2015 during the US presence.”

His claims come just weeks after Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard dropped a similar truth-bomb live on CNN, claiming that she had obtained proof during a recent visit to Syria that the Obama administration directly funded ISIS.

>Britain's Prince Harry sought counselling in his late twenties to help deal with the grief of losing his mother more than a decade earlier, he told the Telegraph newspaper.

>Harry, whose mother Diana died in a car crash in Paris in 1997 when he was just 12, said he had come "very close to a complete breakdown" on several occasions after shutting down his emotions, impacting both his work and his personal life.

>"My way of dealing with it was sticking my head in the sand, refusing to ever think about my mum, because why would that help? It's only going to make you sad, it's not going to bring her back," he said in an interview published on Monday.

Police are investigating the case of a pregnant 11-year-old who is set to become Britain’s youngest mother.

The father is understood to be a couple of years older than the girl, police say.

Few details of the pregnancy can be made public for legal reasons and the local authority is seeking strict reporting restrictions in the High Court’s family division.

The mother-to-be, who lives in the east of England, is expected to give birth soon, possibly by caesarean section, according to the Mirror.

>Northern Ireland should hold new elections if parties fail to reach agreement on forming a new government by a deadline next week, a senior member of Irish nationalist party Sinn Fein said on Friday, after a week of talks he said brought little progress.

>New elections would leave the British province without a government for two more months during Britain's crucial talks to exit the European Union, and would give Sinn Fein a chance to become the largest party in Northern Ireland for the first time.

>"The legislation is very clear: if there isn't an agreement we need to go to an election," said Conor Murphy, speaking to journalists on behalf of Sinn Fein's negotiating team.

Russia Suspends Cooperation With U.S. in Syria After Missile Strikes

>MOSCOW — Russia on Friday froze a critical agreement on military cooperation with the United States in Syria after an American military strike, warning that the operation would further corrode already dismal relations between Moscow and Washington.

>Syria, Russia’s ally, condemned the American strikes as “a disgraceful act.”

>In addition to suspending the pact to coordinate air operations over Syria, an accord that was meant to prevent accidental encounters between the two militaries, Russia also said it would bolster Syria’s air defense systems, and was reported to be planning to send a frigate into the Mediterranean Sea to visit the logistics base at the Syrian port of Tartus.

>The Infanta Christina ship sailed past the coast of the British territory at around lunchtime in what Gibraltar said was an illegal incursion and was pursued by a British naval vessel patrolling the Rock until it left.

>“It wasn’t one of the best days in my time. I had a phone call from the military commander saying, ‘Sir, I’m afraid something awful’s happened.’ I thought, ‘Goodness me, what?’ And he said, ‘I’m afraid we’ve invaded Spain, but we don’t think they’ve noticed,’” West told the BBC.

>“They charged up the beach in the normal way, being Royal Marines—they’re frightfully good soldiers of course, and jolly good at this sort of thing—and confronted a Spanish fisherman who sort of pointed out, ‘I think you’re on the wrong beach.’”

So is it one of you that's coming over to the board and shitposting? It's not appreciated. You have your own board and we have ours, so why not just leave it at that? I'm not bait posting on your board and I was pretty clear that baitposting would be cleared out. Make no mistake, you were coming onto our turf, ethnonationalists, to say that a desire for an all white homeland was just 'larping'. It doesn't really matter if DOTR ever happens even though it would be preferable. The hate for shitskins that happens on extremist boards like /pol/,/polk/ et al is basically a bargaining tactic. Yes, we would love to kill all shitskins in an above board way, a pro-white ethnic cleansing if you will, but if that's our starting position and we just get all non-whites deported, then that's fine. If you start with deportations of all non-whites then what you'll be left with is some lame 'deport just the illegals' type compromise. That's where Trump made his first mistake really.

So yeah, if you can't post without calling people who understand this basic truism 'larping' then I invite you to just stay here and not shitpost on my board.

Top US national security official ridicules Donald Trump's suggestion that Britain spied on him

>Allegations from the United States that British spy agency GCHQ snooped on Donald Trump during his election campaign are "arrant nonsense", the deputy head of the US National Security Agency (NSA) said in an interview on Saturday.

>President Trump has stood by unproven claims that the Obama administration tapped his phones during the 2016 White House race. On Thursday his spokesman cited a media report that Britain's GCHQ was behind the surveillance.

>Richard Ledgett, deputy director of the NSA, told BBC News the idea that Britain had a hand in spying on Trump was "just crazy".

>“If you are female and from an ethnic background – and preferably both – then you are in an extremely propitious period,” Allan told a panel during the Retail Week Live conference this week.

>“For a thousand years, men have got most of these jobs, the pendulum has swung very significantly the other way now and will do for the foreseeable future. If you are a white male, tough – you are an endangered species and you are going to have to work twice as hard.”

>Ukip was in a state of open civil war last night after Nigel Farage publicly warned that the party will collapse unless its sole MP Douglas Carswell is thrown out.

>Mr Farage, the former UK Independence Party leader, said Mr Carswell had “sought to split and divide UKIP in every way imaginable” since defecting from the Conservatives to Ukip in 2014.

>The two men have been at odds for years over the party's policies but their antipathy came to a head last night amid claims that Mr Carswell frustrated Mr Farage's chances of being awarded a knighthood.

Brit/pol/ #1597:Macpherson Robertson Edition

Creator of the Freddo

>His business quickly grew as Mac Robertson Steam Confectionery Works. By the late 1880s the business employed thirty people. The company introduced chewing-gum and fairy floss to Australia as well as well known confectionery names including Freddo Frog,[1] Cherry Ripe, Old Gold Chocolates, Milk Kisses and Columbines. By 1900, it had become the largest confectionery works in Australia with agencies in every state.

>As part of his marketing strategy, Macpherson maintained a distinctive whiteness to everything he could - the buildings in the Fitzroy factory complex were all painted white and all of his several thousand employees wore white uniforms. Macpherson himself ensured he was always seen in public dressed immaculately in white and rode in a carriage behind two white ponies. The factory complex became known as White City.

>In 1967 MacRobertson's was acquired by English confectioner Cadbury's which in 1969 merged with Schweppes Australia to become Cadbury Schweppes.
