We've had fuck all from my kids' school since lockdown, apart from a download link to some work and one copy and paste email to both boys, with just the kids name, school year and teacher changed to suit. Couple of weeks back we get told that they're asking year 5 kids to come back for two weeks, this being the first, the second in a fortnight's time, happy enough for him to go in, no dramas. Get an email today with a Microsoft Teams link, his class have got a meet up next Monday. I've been using my phone camera as a webcam for family zoom chats at the weekend, but now scrabbling to get a proper webcam before Monday. Every prick has bought all the webcams, leaving only the shitty knockoff ones kicking around, or jacking up the price of 50 webcams to 200+. Schools fucking suck.
Or just don't bother with the webcam, do voice only. That's what my lad did when his school did lessons on Teams, school were quite happy with that. Although in his case it was more to do with the fact that he's got used to doing lessons in his dressing gown rather than lack of webcam tbh Smiley

If you absolutely have to have a webcam and don't mind terrible quality, I've got an old one kicking about you can have

Most ethnic groups have been subject to slavery in the past, where do you draw the line?

In a BLM-baiting interview with Baby Brexiteer Darren Grimes, Starkey said "Slavery was not genocide, otherwise there wouldn't be so many damn blacks in Africa or in Britain would there?" (direct quote)

Ah Grimes who was not ashamed to use a defence re electoral spending that he was too thick to fill in a tick box on a form, and on seeing him in court the Judge agreed and accepted the defence as truthful.

I wonder whether he intends to bring down racists twats one at a time via this show of his?

Thing is as Starkey probably knows, only one genocide in history has come close to actually eradicating an entire population. The so-called Black War of the 1820s reduced the number of indigenous Tasmanians to fewer than 300. Guess which empire perpetrated it?

Think he was rather hoping to give a platform to (and make money off) some near to the knuckle dogwhistle racism and general far-right trolls like himself, until Starkey went charging over the dogwhistle line like a labrador that's just spotted an unattended pork chop. His initial reaction to the interview was to congratulate himself (of course) and blether about how wonderful it was to meet one of his heroes and what a great talk it was. Only when people called out the blatant racism that he started making excuses about inexperience etc, he was initially delighted with it. As of course he would be, the bigoted little troll.

"so many damn blacks".

It's difficult to see how somebody could not see the racism in that.

Maybe you don't notice it if it's how you normally converse day to day because you're just a massive racist? For both Grimes and Starkey

Nice of the BBC to provide a link to Grimes show and also not challenge him earlier saying how good it was.

For all of the right's gibbering about "lefty" BBC bias, from Starkey to Farage to actively inviting Nazis (and transporting them half way across the country) to ask questions on Question Time as "ordinary members of the public" this kind of shit, they don't half act as an enabler for the very extreme fringe of the far right a lot of the time. Grimes, btw, is the chairman of the "Defund the BBC" campaign. The BBC seem to be actively conniving in their own destruction.
