    Default JLR, stop this nonsense!!!

    So, I am a huge fan. Love my Discos and have really been around the block with Landies in my life.

    But, this is now getting to the point where I really feel that JLR can go .......... themselves and I will distance myself from the brand. That is how strongly I feel about stupid crap that this stupid handful of a-holes do to make what is supposed to be my pride and joy, seem like me being a sellout to the woke nonsense permeating the world we live in.

    Staff at the car giant's plant in Solihull must use 'surrogates' instead of 'slave'
    'Master' and 'slave' are common terms when describing parts that work together
    One worker said: 'It's as a result of a few voices making a fuss. No one here supports slavery. We just want to build great cars and go home'

    Like it reads, "result of a few voices making a fuss". That's right, a few. But let's not upset the few weaklings by not giving in to this idiocy that they force on everyone. All around us the normal citizens of the world are being forced to bend the knee to the handful of spiteful little sh#ts who deem themselves and their viewpoints as the most important.

    I will not realign my knowledge of car parts just so some stupid pom gets his kick out of what he or she deems is doing something against slavery.

    We all are slaves in anyway.

    It's not just Landrover, it's a global movement to change words and phrases. They want "black list", and "blackball", and a bunch of stuff changed. There must be 100's on the list. It's right up there after damned pronouns that announce a gender. I'm glad I'm going to be dead soonish.

    So for Pooh, there are always impressionable young children nearby, like his BFF, Christopher Robin. Because of this, Pooh is pretty chill, and he knows not to let a salty tongue get the better of him. Instead, he merely sighs out an innocent, "Oh, bother," when he finds himself in a sticky situation.

    I guess the use of the words "Male" and "Female" to describe parts and fittings must also be really high up on their bad words list.

    I feel you. We live in a world of cancel culture, people madness, the woke lot, confused gender issues, history being re-written, war, famine, mass shootings, political correctness, hegemony, financial manipulation, earth warming, religious intolerance, severe corporate greed and so much evil.

    Life means so little. So, let JLR have their parts orgasm, it wont last long. Give them cake.

    Not sure what "distancing myself from the brand" actually entails, but you will have quite a lot of brands to "distance" yourself from. It's the direction the world is going, and I don't think one can run away from it.

    But actually.. why is the deny list called a blacklist ? And the allow list a whitelist?
