      Something Wicked This Way Comes...   10/09/2019

      The Autumn Supporter Giveaway!       Welcome to the very first of the seasonal BCF supporter giveaways! This month also marks one year since I took on the forum, so I want to say an extra huge thank you to all of you for keeping this place going. I have a little bit more to say about that later but, for now, let's get to the giveaway!     The Autumn Giveaway winner will be getting two Penguin Little Black Classics, The Tell-Tale Heart by Edgar Allan Poe and To Be Read At Dusk by Charles Dickens. Both of these little books contain three atmospheric short stories, perfect for autumnal evenings. The winner will also get Mary Shelley tea (a lavender and vanilla black tea) from Rosie Lea Tea's Literary Tea Collection (https://www.rosieleatea.co.uk/collections/literary-tea-collection) and a chocolate skull, to really get that spooky atmosphere .   and...   A special treat for a special month. The winner will choose one of the following recent paperback releases from the independent bookshop Big Green Bookshop:       The Wych Elm by Tana French A House of Ghosts by W.C. Ryan Melmoth by Sarah Perry The Familiars by Stacey Halls  The Dark Descent of Elizabeth Frankenstein by Kiersten White   The winner will be chosen via the usual random selection process in one week. Patreon supporters are entered automatically. If you aren't a patreon supporter but you'd like to join in with this giveaway, you can support here: https://www.patreon.com/bookclubforum.   I really hope you're all going to like this introduction to the seasonal giveaways. It's been a lot of fun to put together. Other chocolate skulls may have been harmed during the selection process…

We are now separating babies from their parents as those parents cross the boarder seeking asylum from gang killings and domestic violence. These were once reasons for seeking asylum, now these people reaching out for help are detained and their children taken away. We have a "zero tolerance" policy in effect and Drumpf's henchman is using the bible as a reference to its legality. Its now cool to kidnap babies and house then in kennel cages.

 

I hate these people.

Yes, I read about that - truly shocking. I know I criticise our Government but at least they don't do that.

Now that we've completely lost any sense of moral compass, it's decided to withdraw from the UN Human Rights Council. Of COURSE WE WILL! It's what cowards and despots DO! No shocker there, right?! I mean, how can we look other countries in the face and tell them how wrong they are and we're doing that AND worse. The Devil in the Orange Skin can't handle being called on his BS so he runs and hides. I hate this man.

Trump keeps trying to blame the law on the democrats, when they never did this, he's not legally required to do it at all, and a simple phone call could stop the whole thing! I think he's trying to keep in with his base supporters who want a very hard line taken against illegal immigrants. If he backs down to pressure he'll lose face and we know how much he hates that!

For me the bottom line is, illegal immigrants are people, they have a human right to dignity even if being deported.

Trump is an overtly obnoxious being isn't he?
