This is amusing

He has also deleted a number of his previous posts on Twitter, including one which dismissed three female Labour politicians as “dim”, and another which claimed “women’s sport is more comparable to the Paralympics than it is to men’s.”

This is true:

in a 2016 interview argued that “intelligence is largely inherited”.

This is true but incendiary:

Responding, Mr Sabisky wrote: “If the mean black American IQ is (best estimate based on a century’s worth of data) around 85, as compared to a mean white American IQ of 100, then if IQ is normally distributed (which it is), you will see a far greater percentage of blacks than whites in the range of IQs 75 or below, at which point we are close to the typical boundary for mild mental retardation.”

Note the If at the beginning there. If that is so then the rest does follow.

Boris Johnson has been told to “immediately” sack a controversial new adviser

It’s so difficult to get the help these days.

That will all also explain why I’ll not be working in SW1 any time soon.

  1. Off topic but I can’t help wondering if coverage of the undoubtedly sad suicide of Caroline Flack would have been different if she had been a bloke who had been accused of violently assaulting his girlfriend. I’ve listened to an awful lot of coverage of the story which barely mentions why she was facing charges. How much sympathy, I wonder, would a man have got in similar circumstances.

    Where are the domestic violence charities in all this?

  2. Yep, a lot of talk about people being demonised in the media. Anyone worried about Cummings being demonised? What if he kills himself? Would these same people be making a song and dance then?

    Andrew C,

    Where are the domestic violence charities in all this?

    I had to explain this one to Mrs BiND last night as there’s an awful lot of wilful amnesia going on around over this case in the MSM, especially the BBC.

    Those domestic charities campaigned for years to have the law changed so that the police and CPS could continue a domestic violence prosecution even when the “victim” withdraws the complaint. Of course, none of them expected it to be applied when the victim was a man, conveniently forgetting that something like 15% of domestic violence is women on men.

  4. What if science gets better and better and the most incendiary conjectures around race and gender are indeed proven? What if Oriental IQs are a bit higher than Caucasian? What if Brunner syndrome is true? I presume we will just have to ensure that the law treats everyone the same and that some people’s life chances will be less than others’ because they are born that way. It is manifestly obvious that we are not all equal – other than in the eyes of the law. I suppose the moral question is ‘should the law compensate people for their innate shortcomings’?
    My vote for the most explosive ones would be if we truly understood EXACTLY what homosexuality and/or gender dysmorphia are and could ‘cure’ them. The wailing and gnashing of teeth would be heard on the moon.

  5. “Those domestic charities campaigned for years to have the law changed so that the police and CPS could continue a domestic violence prosecution even when the “victim” withdraws the complaint.”

    Is that right, Mr in ND?

    It certainly was not my experience of criminal practice. That is to say, I did not see the law changed to allow prosecutions where the complainant withdraws the complaint. My experience was that the law always allowed for this – but it may be that whatever change it is you have in mind occurred before my time …

  6. “Those domestic charities campaigned for years to have the law changed so that the police and CPS could continue a domestic violence prosecution even when the “victim” withdraws the complaint. ”

    This – I haven’t even heard it mentioned once, even by the reporters standing outside the CPS itself.

    A few more details are filtering out about the evidence now she is dead – sounds like she was afraid of a rather humiliating body camera video from the police response, and as well as apparently attacking her boyfriend she had self-inflicted injuries to her wrists, which may be where some of the blood came from.

    My guess – she did attack him, she probably damaged herself too, and she was clearly unstable in a general sense. Despite it not being quite like the normal bullying husband type of domestic violence, there would have been a good chance of a conviction and then the work would really have dried up despite the protestations of support from her media friends.

    I do wonder what her drugs history was like.

  7. Seems the left are quite the science denying types, aren’t they?

    Except when it comes to global warming, of course, because that can be used as a stick to beat white people with.

  8. “I did not see the law changed to allow prosecutions where the complainant withdraws the complaint. My experience was that the law always allowed for this”

    I’m don’t think the law was actually changed but i do recall pressure being applied that cases should be more readily prosecuted even if the alleged victim didn’t want to proceed. It’s a frequent occurrence that a couple have a fight then make up. Wimmin’s charities could cite cases where this eventually escalated and so wanted all cases prosecuted to the hilt as men are naturally evil and ‘leopards don’t change their spots’. I suspect that men are far less likely to want to have a prosecution where their female partner has smacked them one.

    This case may be an unintended consequence of that pressure.

  9. “something like 15% of domestic violence is women on men.”

    Rough numbers in the UK are c100 women killed by male partners every year and c30 men killed by female partners every year.

    I can’t remember any MPs reading out the names of the male victims. Probably they don’t count or had it coming to them or something.

    And see below. An attempt by Victoria Atkins attempt to downplay the % of male victims (which is around 33% not the 15% you mention) and even to suggest with no evidence at all that it’s actually men beating each other up.

    M’Lud,
    Is that right, Mr in ND?

My experience was that the law always allowed for this – but it may be that whatever change it is you have in mind occurred before my time …

    As others have pointed out and I found out when I decided to do some research rather than rely on my old brain, it was a change in the police’s approach as they had been dropping cases even when they had evidence.

    Andrew,

    And see below. An attempt by Victoria Atkins attempt to downplay the % of male victims (which is around 33% not the 15% you mention) and even to suggest with no evidence at all that it’s actually men beating each other up.

    Happy to stand corrected, I thought it was nearer 25% but 15% (1/7) was the number I found first.

  11. Oblong,

    “My guess – she did attack him, she probably damaged herself too, and she was clearly unstable in a general sense. Despite it not being quite like the normal bullying husband type of domestic violence, there would have been a good chance of a conviction and then the work would really have dried up despite the protestations of support from her media friends.”

    but how bad is that? She’s an attractive woman. Some farmer in rural Nebraska would take her for a wife, give her a good life. How long a career did she have left as a presenter of vapid reality TV? They tend to like photogenic women, and at 41, how many years do you have left?

    Carlos Ghosn had the right idea. Bugger off from Japan, move to Lebanon where there’s no extradition and live on your vineyard.

    Actually that’s 23% (30/130), although your basic point is right, that it’s a lot more than 15% and definitely a part of the problem that’s too large to be ignored in the way it usually is.

    (unless I’ve misunderstood and your 33% was meant to refer to overall domestic violence, not referring back to your numbers on deaths)

  13. Hold on. The Left knows that IQ is not a measure of intelligence, and that it can’t be because intelligence doesn’t really exist. Therefore what the chap said isn’t wrong or evil it is merely meaningless – a spiritual statement akin to a religion. So why are they cultivating a phobia about his religion? Psychometricsphobia is surely illegal!

  14. @RichardT

    (unless I’ve misunderstood and your 33% was meant to refer to overall domestic violence, not referring back to your numbers on deaths)

    Yes, it was overall, not deaths.

  15. ‘dismissed three female Labour politicians as “dim” ‘

    Only three? Fellow’s judgement and discernment are lacking.

  16. Telegraph:-

    “He claimed that black Americans had on average lower IQ’s than their white counterparts”.

    While it may be a de facto hate crime to state such scientifically proven truths the word “claim” should have no place in this supposedly objective article.

  17. Jussi: ’ Would these same people be making a song and dance then?’

    They’d be dancing in the street, throwing sweets to passers by. The hypocritical scum.

  18. Tim

    This is why ‘Twitter scrubbing’ is recommended for anyone of a rightist bent looking to make a late entry into Public life. On the Left one can have any number of skeletons in the closet and it’s no problem….

  19. “Rough numbers in the UK are c100 women killed by male partners every year and c30 men killed by female partners every year.
    I can’t remember any MPs reading out the names of the male victims. Probably they don’t count or had it coming to them or something.”

    I think we all know by now that any man killed by his wife/romantic partner was an evil wife beater and psychological tormentor, and she was merely responding to years of abuse by staying with him and then totally righteously beating him to death with a hammer while he sat at the dinner table……….

  20. IQ is a funny thing. Take East Africans. In Africa, one of the lowest IQs on the planet (in the low 80s). Yet their children in education in UK are bang on average (which we can take to be IQ100). Forget the Flynn effect, 20 points in a generation!
    Other populations exhibit weird anomalies too. Contrast the experience of Jamaican immigrants in US and UK.

    I know nearly nothing about Flack. But yes the signs point DRUGS as I read them.

    I wondered same. Beyond, the PM can be told what to do? He has no power?

    Imagine someone telling Trump he had to do something. Hearty laugh follows.

    I didn’t realize that PM and President were so different.

  22. @Jussi February 17, 2020 at 7:54 am

    That high? Although I guess their 150 score in the “lying and conning” part of brain raised overall score

    @Andrew C

    Man? “Abusive, violent man does right thing”

    Labour robot trys to be “in touch” with voters

    – Keir Starmer on C4 Debate
    – “Caroline Flack’s death shook the nation”

    No it didn’t, it was a suicide no different from others

    I would add that her dressing like a hooker for the December hearing wouldn’t have impressed judge Julia Newton

    Flack’s lawyer, Paul Morris, told the district judge, Julia Newton, that Burton does not support the prosecution. “He is not a victim, he is a witness,” Morris said.

    Katie Weiss, prosecuting, said: “Mr Burton is a victim, he received significant injury to his head. He said he had been asleep and was hit over the head by Caroline with a lamp, causing a visible cut to his head. She had also smashed a glass and she had sustained an injury.”

    Drugs? Dunno, but the huge tattoo on her back would make me steer clear

  23. It comes after the Mail on Sunday reported that, during the same year, Andrew Sabisky suggested that “long-term contraception” should be legally enforced at the onset of puberty to curb “unplanned pregnancies” and the creation of a “permanent underclass.”

    Strangely it was compassionate & sensible when Bill Clinton did this in USA with 5 year implants

  24. I think the views by the government advisor were disgusting.
    I think that racists and bullies should be removed from the government.
    But I also think that this story should not be used as an excuse to say that weirdoes and misfits should be banned from government.
    I think that people should not be banned from government simply for being weird or a misfit. Do not use this scandal as an excuse to pick on people for being shy. It is social discrimination to ban people from government simply for being quiet or shy.
    At my school, if you were shy and quiet, then you were seen as weird. While if you were an out-going racist, homophobic, sexist bully then you were seen as a normal bloke by bullies.
    I hate racists, bullies, wife beaters sexists and homophobes.
    The government advisor was immoral for his arguments, and was rightly removed from his post. but do not use this as justification to pick on anyone who is shy or quiet, on the basis that bullies see shy and quiet people as weirdoes and misfits.

  25. Damn

  26. Given the disparity in strength between men and women one would expect women to come off worse in a fight, partly because men have the power to do more damage, and partly because they are better equipped to parry blows. However in any fight the first mover has an advantage.
    If the figures show 100 female deaths to 30 male that indicates that the first mover is as often as not female the disparity being due to the relative effectiveness of men in a fight.

    Women know they’re weaker and usually arm themselves before a wild attack – premeditated, not an angry push/slap/punch
