And Britain rubber stamps it. This is the second reason why it’s bullshit to argue that it’s OK to support antiLQBT politicians on the theory that things like equal right and gay marriage are well established.

That sucks. I've been to Bermuda a dozen times or more over my lifetime. Much less likely to go back now.

Most of Britain (including me, and I follow the news) didn't know anything about this until it was a done deal. Of course I'm sure someone reported it but I didn't see it.

Rather, if Teresa May had wanted to stop it, she might have tried. But what comes out top on her list is establishment order (especially now that's her). Her gay rights voting was pretty much anti when that was Tory standard practice until the tide turned (something David Cameron, must as he screwed up almost everything else, got right) she did too.

Well, part of the support for Brexit is because rights can be torn up. (No, that's not hyperbole.) I still think it would hard here because the majority view is in favour - and it's growing because the pros are growing up and the antis are dying off. In the short run I'd be more concerned with employment rights (including gay issues there). But you're right, eternal vigilance and all that.

Well so much for that, I got that email address from the Bermuda Travel Authority website, but I got my email bounced back that "travel" doesn't exist at bermudatourism.com

You question my political leaning? Or that I like island vacationing?


I look forward to seeing your Bermuda photos.

Careful, you'll cause a RSP liberal to hay-wire if they release the muslim political regime is not congruent with homosexuality.


Why? Conservative fundamentalists are idiots, whether in the West or elsewhere. They all share the same stupid ideas, American, German, Russian, Hungarian, Iranian. Funny how they still slag each other off.

Oh, and sorry if I got that wrong but aren't you 9/11 guy

And there we have it, that shitty "joke" is sufficient to qualify for the banhammer (well, that and half-a-dozen other rapid-fire abusive/bigoted shit-posts, I guess).

If I had to guess, I'd say that along with all that, the above allegation of being a white nationalist may have provoked an investigation into his posting history. Ol' Octy seems to be on a hair trigger for that type of shit.

Kind of a shame, because posts like his provide a morbidly fascinating window into the modern right-wing thought-hell that a depressing number of people in this country gleefully inhabit.

Nope, quite sure Octavian looks only at current posting, not stuff from outside RSP or before the new moderation regime. He's even given reasons why not.

Like, I realize there is a definite degree of both passive and outright aggressiveness from the RSP regulars that gets tolerated, but you have to admit, it is pretty uncanny how easy it is to call when new posters are going to get banned.

For me, it's Switzerland. It's got a lot of things going for it, and the flag is a big plus too.
