Re: Winning Socialism!

I am not even talking about "winning" an argument. You usually don't present one. Your style is to present a conclusion and anyone that disagrees is delusional or call them a name. I am actually willing to be convinced of the strengths/deficiencies of Boris's communication skills (at least from what...

Re: Winning Socialism!

Flash, the onus is not on me to prove anything. Why on earth should it be? Jamie can either believe me or not, and I'm not particularly fussed about which path he eventually chooses. If this was a debate between political parties seeking election, or even just a university debating competition, you...

Re: Winning Socialism!

Why couldn't even both be true...that Boris's style was great for Brexit but poor for COVID? I am sure there may be a more nuanced answer here.

Re: Winning Socialism!

Why on earth would I need to? I assumed, perhaps foolishly, that you'd simply accept the commonly recognised fact. It didn't occur to me that you'd be such a deluded fool to make an issue of it, and in what sense is it worth my while to point out your delusions with evidence? I have no doubt whatso...

Re: Winning Socialism!

What argument, Flash? That New Statesman article can be summed up by saying they didn't like a particular campaign speech. That's not an argument, just an opinion. That the campaign in question proved to be the most successful in recent British political history surely provides some evidence to sug...

Re: wD Mafia Master Post

Well, with the mini-mafia game done, do we have a timetable on the next full one @Jamie? :-) Hello. I will have the final draft of my setup for Consideration by the Council of Two, by some point in the next 24 hours. I will post a sign-up thread, pending that approval, in a similar time period.

Re: The United States is a fascist police state, no longer a democracy

Laugh it up, Octavious. Laugh it up. I understand you are laughing. Because you're winning. You and your nationalist, right-wing pals are winning. Hard-won rights are being eroded and racist, homophobic regimes and fronts are gaining power across Europe and the Western world. I am sure you are very...

One imagines that the Catholic Church, were it represented here, would strongly disagree and protest vigorously against anti religious bias and bigotry.
