Looks like a hilarious ukip press conference, just waiting on the full video to be uploaded. Sargon apparently went in all guns blazing at the media. They might be a generation too soon for widespread public appeal but for those in on the joke its terrific entertainment.

@Tim 2.06pm: Charlie gets political - tells everyone to vote for Labour.
RE: NZ Rugby Board representational 'diversity'
Why does it require diversity? Who wants people without an understanding of rugby and commercial nous on the board ffs?
It’s not zero sum.
The most recent “diverse” additions actually have a lot of nous - MJ is a former AB and business owner I think (along with being a PI and a geographer?) and Farah Palmer is a 3 time RWC winner and lecturer in Sports Management.
Exactly, it's demeaning to say that these additions didn't make it on merit but on pigment and having the correct genitalia and that is what this push implies.
It's a running joke at my work right now (large tech company), with male managers leaving and replaced with female managers..merit or genitalia.. hard to say when you have publicly announced targets based on immutable characteristics.
Why not diversity targets on height? weight? How about household income during childhood? Aversion to pineapple on pizza? Political persuasion?
The religion of diversity determines that your entire being can be adequately described by your skin pigment, your genitalia, what you pretend your genitalia is or who you want to fuck. Everything else about you is secondary.
NZ Rugby Board representational 'diversity'
This might need to go into 'Politics', kinda cuts directly between the two.
Sad to see this sort of cancer working its way through everything. When your entire being, your history, views, life experiences and qualifications for a job can be summarised simply by the pigment of your skin then you've just institutionalised actual racism.
While 2016 and 2018 saw Farah Palmer and Sir Michael Jones elected to NZR's board, Wednesday's 2019 annual general meeting saw three middle-aged white men either elected and reappointed.
And they weren't even close to adding more diversity to the board, with the two provincial candidates put forward both cut from the same cloth.
RE: Climate Change #3 & Other Environmental Issues
@TeWaio The product of climate hysteria sadly. Like the moronic vegans who shut down Melbourne a couple weeks back the only thing these fucksticks are going to achieve is more people despising them and wanting to pick a team that isn't them.
RE: The Folau Factor
@canefan The devil will be in what those details are exactly. Would paraphrasing a bible verse fit? He seems happy enough to stand on principle.
RE: The Folau Factor
@MajorRage If I try and turn it on its head. Folau isn't standing against freedom of sexuality. He is just giving a warning about what he believes will happen to them when they die (assuming literal hell rather than metaphorical), there is no force involved. . Extremist protesters, sponsors and ARU are however attempting to use force (as in removal of income) to stop Folau from speaking his beliefs.
