Yep and when conspiracies are nonsense it gets pointed out.


Islam is known for its hypermisogynistic views, covering up and shaming women.

tons of islamic imports over the last decade in London

muslim mayor gets elected..and immediately starts shaming and trying to remove sexy women from the public eye.

nonsense you say? why are you on a conspiracy website if you reject the absolute basic links of cause and effect? what you are seeking is a church, not a place of analysis and skepticism.

Funny..I didn't think this was the biggest threat to London and the west. I thought it was jihadists who want to burn it all down. Perhaps he should focus on helping resolve this issue before tackling a few harmless images on a subway. Maybe there is a meatball sub that he feels he needs to eradicate as the biggest threat to his city. Loss of perspective...


What cobblers.

Do you think Londoners are as scared as you Americans?

When my parents were kids, the Germans threw bombs at London every day for years. They got on with it.

When I was a kid, the IRA was bombing pubs and train stations and parks. We got on with it.

Life goes on and we're more likely to be run over by a car than killed by a Jihadi.

So we worry more about traffic. And housing. And transport. And all the quality of life things that make a difference to us and our families from day-to day instead of a boogieman who is less likely to harm us than a lightning strike.

To buy into the argument the mayor is saying, you must find a woman exposing her stomach to be somehow inapproprate in western society. I reject that, I will fight anyone who would try to push that.


More cobblers.

It has nothing to do with "western society". Khan is London born and bred.

It's not an attack on our values.

It has everything to do with what Londoners want in their own city.

It's a defence of our values in the face of a consumerism that doesn't care who it steps on.

assigning this action to some bizarre islamic conspiracy

...its a conspiracy website



I am in favor of vigilance. Is this due to his islamic roots showing?...maybe..but probably not (at least not 100%), but its better to keep watch verses get into a slippery slope of censorship. the UK is becoming more and more conservative here. new bans on types of porn, "sexism" in video games, etc..it is a fairly brisk pace towards something potentially bad going on and its best to hold up anything that may be relevant.

is this relevant...it could be.


If you ever come to the UK, buy a copy of The Sun newspaper and look at page three.

If anything, the UK has become far more liberal over the last thirty years...

I give up.

Maybe I'll understand London better if I move to America and read right wing blogs instead...

Used to live there.
Now, look at this from 2015:
DailyMail on page 3 girls going away

This only lasted a few months, then they went back to norm, but look at how the wording is in that article:

The Conservative Cabinet minister said: "This is a long-overdue decision and marks a small but significant step towards improving media portrayal of women and girls. I very much hope it remains permanent."

improving media portrayal of women...by making them cover up their tops.
thats right, throw clothes on those harlots for daring to have pride in their bodys.
look at this also:

It also received the backing of Liberal Democrat women's and equalities minister Jo Swinson - although she criticised the decision to run pictures of two Hollyoaks actresses in their bikinis on today's Page 3 instead.
She said: "I am delighted that the old-fashioned sexism of Page 3 could soon be a thing of the past.

right...sexism = women being portrayed as attractive and alluring.
sexism = sex positive
this is puritan values, not london values. no possible way you can say to me it is anything but.


"I'd like to see us providing positive role models for young girls instead of suggesting that women's contribution is in how they look."

And what about women who want to simply be beautiful and proud of their body? oh..screw those women..cover em up and give them no agency or venue to express themselves..shut down places that show scantly clad women.

When you cheer on clear attempts by politicians to influence a negative view of body and promote censorship and puritanical views, you are part of the problem the west faces. it is not liberal..it is anti-liberal
it is regressive, anti-liberal views being pushed.

you fight those people. If these adverts weren't working, they would stop advertising that way. but they are working, people are being made aware of the brand and buying it. they are interesed in seeing page 3 girls so buying the magazines, etc. no laws broken, yet the government finds this a issue..because why?
because some people find it offensive due to them not liking the idea of attractive women on display..

I am more offended by thick cheeseburger ads..that directly leads to heart attacks, cancer, stroke, and mass inhumane practices of animals...but thats cool...yet a fit person scantly clad is damaging to the culture?...

nonsense

So let me get this straight your against alcohol because it's unhealthy and your argument is we shouldn't let people abuse their bodies. Then complain about women who are physically fit eat right in bikinis the alternative of course is obesity the number one health risk in most western countries. It's the leading cause if heart disease not to mention other things like diabetes. So you claim the state should ban all unhealthy things are you going to have them ban fat people??

I think your motivation is something else since your argument makes no sense. Sounds to me your being a against drinking and women dressing in bikinis is more a moral issue than you let on.

Little town called woking in the surrey area. small community called horsell.

On weekends we would go down to planets to dance..oddly enough never bowled, even though it was a bowling alley.
I would occasionally skate off to London, but didn't do much clubbing there. as much as I would have liked anyhow. was too busy playing house or out working.

I worked with a nice mix of people, south african, indian, and myself were in our tri-cube thing, but I rarely spent time at the office, too busy going off site.
I never made my peace with spicey indian food, although there were more indian shops than I think roadsigns..had to go with the Marsala stuff

now
why dont you tell me more about how I dont know the UK. I am a perm resident.

You have just fallen into the blind regressive narrative being pushed on you. people like you give rise to people like Merkel..soon your PMs will be ashamed of the British flag being waved.

Because London is the worst place in the UK?

What a moron just because a mayor gives an opinion on something everyone in London should die

Can't believe some of the comments i read on here.

I can see why people getting irate about this.
Personally I don’t like the fact they use that picture to advertise the protein pills as its deceiving.
But to have a healthy fit body on display only offends people who are fat and don’t look like that.

This is how a body should look like if you are healthy and keep fit. It’s stupid how people find it offensive just because they too lazy or like a glutinous life. People look after their own cars more than their own body. That’s their fault so stop pointing fingers at people who decide to do the same to their body. Their main vessel of transport.

If not already, then I feel this mayor will be swayed by Muslims who may threaten his or families life if he don’t implement X Y and Z . he don’t look to tough and will crack under pressure.

This more of a concern to me .

i think we just have to face the fact that the people in this thread who hate muslims (very clear who they are) will always find something about sadiq to complain about. No matter what he does. if they want to live their lives filled with hate for 1 billion people, then i say let them. No skin off our nose. The comments made about london and our mayor are so ignorant as to be laughable.

Thats because you are a sexist prude and judgmental puritan.

London is a city, it isn't the whole of the UK. Only Londoners, people living in London, voted for the London mayor, not everyone else in the UK. Some people can't undestand that London isn't the rest of the UK.

Sexist and judgemental because I don't think page 3 was about empowering women? I suppose you think girls do porn because they really enjoy people watching them have sex? Or that sex workers are all really just about to meet Richard Gere in a Lotus?

I having nothing against looking pictures of attractive women, just don't pretend you are doing for their benefit.
