Praise the Lord, for we have a new home, Going-Postal.Net, Hallelujah brothers and sisters.
After a somewhat trying time talking to the local builders they have finally come up trumps. All praise the great erection.
On the seventh day Swiss Bob had finished his work of creation, so he rested from all …. work on that day.
Migration complete. You are now on Going-Postal.net. Welcome.
Comments were lost from the pub and the Saturday night thread in the migration. All others seem to be back now.

upon a time, Brian Eno was best known for being a terrifically talented
musician, composer and producer. Sadly, nowadays he’s better known for
being a high profile member of Stop the War, that group of charmers led
by John Rees and Lyndsey German who claimed the ethnic cleansing of Yazidis is a myth, praised the “spirit of internationalism and solidarity” in ISIS, and whose first reaction to the mass murder of 130 people in Paris was to post a Tweet so obscene
that they quickly deleted it, probably upon the advice of their lawyers
that it was bordering on encouraging and supporting terrorism.
Eno is also a figurehead of the BDS Movement, which campaigns for
“boycotts, divestment and sanctions” against Israel. Now, no country is
above criticism, including Israel. We all have the right to criticise
and condemn any government and if this movement was solely about
campaigning against the Israeli government, there wouldn’t be an issue.
But the BDS Movement isn’t just about criticising the policies of the
Israeli government, it seeks to boycott Israel in totality, right across
the board, including every Israeli athlete, filmmaker, actor, writer, poet, artist and musician, which is why we’ve seen concerts by Israeli orchestras interrupted in London, Israeli footballers violently attacked during a match, and calls for musicians worldwide to refuse to perform in Israel. This movement wants to hold every single Israeli responsible for what their government does, good or bad.
