1792 Dutch banned slavery imports in their colonies, though full implementation took a decade longer

We might be bringing it back though. Senate elections in the Netherlands were just won by a party that claims white people are inherently more evolved, and that women are genetically unsuited for leadership.

Oh yes, and they deny that man made climate change is a big problem....

That would be Geert Wilders' party, right?

Cult classic Vampire the Masquerade Bloodlines is getting a sequel. By Paradox so it should at least be decent. Yes dammit this is news worthy! :)

France still had human zoos during my father's lifetime. Slavery was abolished "but". Not even speaking of what was going on in the colonies.

Found it 1833. England passed the Slavery Abolition act. Bit later than I though but way earlier than the UD
That only stopped the sale of slaves not the practice of slavery.
It only became illegal in the UK during the 1950's when the UK signed up to the ECHR.
But UK legislation making slavery illegal only came in to effect about 2012.

His (former?) client would make an excellent tv talk show host. :)

Couldnt decide where to post this ... it is news... but it is also Trump related, so staff may decide it needs to be moved.

Anywho!

Trump's campaign is now trying to tell the media who they can have on their shows/panels.

That is completely ridiculous but what else should one expect from a wannabe dictator.

WE ARE NOT TRUMP.

So, they want TV shows to no longer book or show anyone who has made a provably false and/or wildly exaggerated claim? Cool, I hope they're ready for the backfire.
