    ‘You’re not welcome here – this is a Kurdish street’: What gangsters told police as they offered bribes to stop officers investigating drug dealing and human trafficking

      So much for the Kurds being friendly to Western Civilization and believers in Western law and order.

        Whatever else, they are mahometans

        The whole middle east is a cesspool, with a few exceptions.

        • Maggat

          And, what pray tell, who would be the exception.

            There are some in Israel.

    Not sure, but that traffic light figure automatically being thought to be female seems patriarchal and not very inclusive. A similar device mounted on car roofs that would start intensely flashing when a female driver inside selects reverse could be a boon.

    • Blacksmith

      And it doesn’t look like a black trash bag, wont’ that trigger the muzzloids to rape?

    • deplorabledave

      I’d be happy if the asshole drivers of MV’s
      and bikes would stop at red lights and stop signs.

  • BillyHW

    How do we know it’s not just a man in a dress?

    • No such thing – a man in a dress is a woman.

    • Maggat

      Now-a-days that is a very legitimate concern.

    “…Crossing light symbols depicting women instead of men have been introduced in Melbourne…”

    See the thing is, men will have no problem with this. But we also know, that in due course, the inconsolable will notice that all symbols are of women, implying that crossing the road is woman’s work, and they’ll change ’em all back again.

    • canminuteman

      Of they will notice that men can cross when ever they want, but women have to wait to be ordered to by a patriarchal light.

    Don’t miss Rex Murphy and Conrad Black’s stories at the National Post website. Especially Rex’s funny take on global warming in Canada.

    • simus1

      A animated cartoon show featuring some of the classic Rex Murphy – Joey Smallwood verbatim dust ups would be comedy gold. This country has so much potential and so little grasp on reality.

    And now the Saturday Toronto Star. Editorial that Trudeau should do more to make this a socialist country, Heather Mallick manages to call Trump every name possible, but also manages to call Scheer stupid. A number of stories explaining that the Trudeau government wants to fight nationalism and populism. Loving your country and letting the peasants express their views is evil. Trump is Hitler stories, Islam is wonderful, Trudeau is wonderful, Wynne is wonderful.

    • Maggat

      You missed – and all of the Toronto Elites are insufferable assholes.

    I hope someone decides that means only women can cross the street.
