Re: If you could commit one crime and it would forever thereafter cease to exist..

I'd kill all seagulls. And then it would indeed be impossible for anyone else to kill a seagull.

Is that the kind of thing you're getting at?

Re: British PM Richie Rich Sunak decides to celebrate 4th July 1776 Anniversary of Loss of Webellious North American Col

All this is pretty much certain. Add variables like a Trump victory, a revived Tory opposition led by the exciting young Badenoch, grim news from Ukraine, and whatever the next unexpected global disaster will be, and Kier may well be wishing he never got the job. But you never know... He may get lu...

Re: British PM Richie Rich Sunak decides to celebrate 4th July 1776 Anniversary of Loss of Webellious North American Col

The Green Party is hurting the Lib Dem because it's being increasingly seen as the go to party of protest, especially for younger voters. The Lib Dems looked too much like the establishment in the coalition era, and their political stunts designed to attract attention are making them look rather sil...

Re: British PM Richie Rich Sunak decides to celebrate 4th July 1776 Anniversary of Loss of Webellious North American Col

There's always the possibility that Labour will destroy itself, but that is a difficult task in the time available even for them. A Labour civil war is coming, but I think they will hold off until after the election. Then Kier will have a hell of a time. Labour will have a big enough presence that r...

Re: British PM Richie Rich Sunak decides to celebrate 4th July 1776 Anniversary of Loss of Webellious North American Col

I'm trying to form an opinion about Sir Kier Starmer I wouldn't bother. He's fine. Born in a political family who were the sort of Labour members who are perfectly happy to send their son to grammar school. Became a human rights lawyer, ended up leading the Crown Prosecution Service which is the so...

Re: British PM Richie Rich Sunak decides to celebrate 4th July 1776 Anniversary of Loss of Webellious North American Col

In all honesty, I don't think anyone cares. We have two party leaders who were both chosen to lead their respective parties primarily because they were nothing like Boris. Starmer has all the appeal of a cheese and salad cream sandwich that has been left overnight in a lunchbox. Sunak is a slightly ...

Re: Was Buddha more "All Knowing" than Jesus

I don't know what Bible the other Christians have been reading, but it's pretty evident from what Jesus said that he spent rather a lot of time not being all knowing. Whether or not you consider him to be all knowing now, the Jesus praying in Gethsemane obviously didn't know everything, and I assume...

Re: Elephants should have never let homo sapiens evolve?

Absolutely. No man is an island, every bastard's death enriches us all, and all that. And I have to say that I found their funeral, in which their coffins were draped in the cheap plastic table cloths and laminated menus of the greasy spoon cafes of respect, deeply appropriate. But as for American g...

It just feels that, in the relatively small group of people that can be loosely defined as "foreign politicians prominent enough for me to be aware of" the mortality rate due to unnatural causes is at an all time high

Why is this discussion in the politics thread?

Is it because US Republicans are seen as being more pro-elephant than the donkey-loving Democrats?

What's the point of chatting about these things online if you're going to tell anyone who disagrees with you to shove off?

Re: The Politics of Protest

The traditional view of the right is that everyone should have the right to protest about any issue so long as it doesn't inconvenience anyone else. The ideal protester stands on his soapbox in Speaker's Corner where he either makes for an amusing tourist attraction or is ignored completely. This is...

Re: Lord of the Rings vs Harry Potter

It would make for a far shorter story if the two worlds were combined

Gandalf "Keep it secret, keep it safe"

Meanwhile, in Mordor
Sauron "Accio ring"

Gandalf "Fuck"
