Further to reports that more than 420,000 Rohingya Muslims have fled violent attacks by Buddhists in Myanmar.

We are into the second week of this but finally a European leader has called this for what it is [French President Emmanuel Macron has said attacks on Myanmar’s Rohingya minority amounted to “genocide].

it is now time to rescind Aung San Suu Kyi of ALL the honours she picked up on her Bono-led tour of Ireland We cannot and should not honour apologists for genocide.

    “We cannot and shold not honour apologists for genocide”

    But anybody on these pages promoting the bweeble-bwap-bwoony-bwubble gets treated like a god.

      How the mighty have fallen. Broadsheet moderators now claim to right to render any comment they don’t like into infantile gobbledegook.

      Yes, and then this happened. They came across new information and adjusted their position accordingly. That’s what grown ups do, little buddy.

        Nah, proper grown ups don’t back fakes in the first place. She was always a whinger, now we see she is a murderer. Amnesty supported her as a darling of all that was luvvie and left. (Oh and they got money for it). Now they get money to push Abortion so moving on, moving on. Follow the dollar. Just like Bono.

          How exactly were Amnesty getting money for supporting Aung San Suu Kyi, and how exactly are they getting money for ‘pushing abortion’? No need, because they were not, and they are not. Amnesty have always supported prisoners of conscience – everywhere, and they support women’s rights, including those regarding their own bodies. Nothing more, nothing less.

        When you say new information, do you mean, ‘new headlines’, cause that seems to be as far into her story people went when she was getting all the honours, and they’re not delving in much deeper now.

      I saw U2 in Munich about 8 years ago. Bono got down on his knees and worshipped a giant image of her. He was nauseatingly over the top.
