Truly these are special individuals….
which makes the reverse epithet “snowflake” especially ironic.
Especially when enough snowflakes get together...
Where did gammon come from? Seen it in last few months.
It's a British term originally attributed to Charles Dickens, and started becoming common in the early 2010s. The Brexit hubbub saw it greatly increase in use, and not surprisingly it's a counter-response to labels like "cuck", "SJW" or "soy boy".
And to be fair, that's usually what it really means when it's used. It's about the blitheness of people who don't have to worry.
I'm comfortable with the young folk expressing their frustration in what is really a pretty light way.
I've taken to using "OK gammon" as a more laser-guided version of "OK boomer".
"Impeachment": because of its potential global impact.
"We utterly reject and condemn you": most powerful local phrase I've heard.

And i wonder if NZ is learning anything at all from Vancouver's leaky apartments debacle.
Leaky buildings still being built highlighting the very urgent need for action especially action on laws governing apartment building management.

The Opal Apartments in Sydney also come to mind.
As individuals we play our small parts. I haven’t visited the Herald since they put up the paywall, not because of the charges but because I refuse to put even a single cent into the pockets of their cabal of offensive pundits. I will not listen to any radio station which airs the same ugly people.
One day the Herald may be forced adapt and adopt a more enlightened attitude. Until then, they’re invisible to me. And that just feels right.
Maybe the Commerce Commission could look into unbundling NZME.
That nice Mr Molyneux is showing his true colours again.
True colours indeed. More in this thread:
And no matter how loudly the self-proclaimed freeze peach fundies get worked up, deplatforming & boycotts do actually get results. Deep down, we need to follow the dark money...
I’ll leave the last word to the Grauniad: “The international far right’s potential to incite violence has been systematically underestimated and neglected by governments, security forces and tech firms over the past decade. To prevent future far-right terrorist acts, we need a more proactive, globally coordinated response, as we had in the global response to jihadism.”
When did the typewriters switch to computers? Given how expensive computers would have been in those days, the switch would probably have come quite late in the game.
