Re: Vote for Boris, or someone else.. UK election an early Christmas present

Who cares at least uk is free of the big gov liberal EU. Freedom. As a EU citizen i would say, at last EU is free of UK. Free of vetoes, opt-outs, and the hundred whims which blocked any serious attempt at a European policy on any matters for so many years. Maybe now the words European Union will b...

I read your post. I just seems you are contradicting yourself. That is all.

Re: UK Election Night Commentary

A victory for selfishness, ignorance, and lies. The entire campaign from all sides was a competition to see who could tell the biggest lies. Even the Lib Dems tried their best. The British people don't like liars, but they weren't given any choice in the matter. The Lib Dem campaign was downright w...

Re: Vote for Boris, or someone else.. UK election an early Christmas present

Firmly in second place, though, with a half dozen seats. Considering it was a election fought on Brexit and Scotland wasn't a fan, that's not a bad effort. I'll just leave your own words here, shall I? I take it you didn't actually bother to read my last post? The Tories fought the election on Brex...

Re: Vote for Boris, or someone else.. UK election an early Christmas present

But I don't know what the feeling on the ground in Scotland actually is. And unlike you, I don't pretend to know... You do pretend to know the premises of my argument, however, despite the fact you were extremely wide of the mark. As it happens rather a lot of my family are Scottish, and I spend a ...

Re: Vote for Boris, or someone else.. UK election an early Christmas present

Well Octavious our Oracle, as I was opening this thread again.& scrolled down page one to my comment about Boris not having appeal to Scottish voters I thought, perhaps that's not 100% the case and though Boris might appeal to a similar proportion approximately of hardy Scots voters as he does in o...

Re: Vote for Boris, or someone else.. UK election an early Christmas present

Boris doesn't have high appeal with voters in Scotland. Firmly in second place, though, with a half dozen seats. Considering it was a election fought on Brexit and Scotland wasn't a fan, that's not a bad effort. ~35% of Scots voted for Brexit, only 25% voted for Conservatives in Scotland. So no, ju...

Re: Play smart, or less so?

When in press, should you pretend you are smarter than you actually are, or less smarter than you actually are? There's pros and cons to each, thoughts?

Re: Well done Trump

Any reason to defend him? Really? I think you need to take a step back and properly read my posts rather than just make assumptions based on your own prejudice. Take the thread WyattS dragged up from two years ago, for example. It was a thread by Jamie highlighting Trump's top ten lies for which my ...

I was looking back through his posts to see if I could defend him in the most recent politics thread of his and... this is what I found.

Re: Well done Trump

Or my best mate happens to be from Hong Kong, so someone taking positive action over there grabs my attention in a way that some US domestic issue does not. As for jumping at the bit, I'm not exactly spamming the forum. I believe that this is the only pro-Trump thread I've made this year. It's alway...

Re: Well done Trump

A bare minimum requirement for nations aspiring to be be leaders of the free world is firstly to show leadership and secondly do it on the side of freedom. There has been depressing lack of interest in doing either from most Western countries in recent years. When someone actually does I'm going to ...
