Re: new cold 'war'?

People are represented. I have no idea what you're talking about regarding equal representation. In the sense that they all have the opportunity to contact their MP about a particular issue, yes. In terms of every individual having their views expressed in Parliament? What an utterly ridiculous idea...

Re: Lock him up

It's a question of scale, surely, otherwise you'd never be able to criticise anyone. There's a world of difference between treating someone with contempt or showing you have zero respect for them, and by portraying them as disgusting evildoers with a trail of bodies behind them, or by calling for th...

Re: Lock him up

All that is prefaced with an IF. It was prefaced with "he has a point". Perhaps you could enlighten me about what his point is? I am willing to accept that everything following the if was a hypothetical, extreme, and unconnected irrelevance if you so wish. Also, 'every Tyrant'... Yeah it's not just...

Re: new cold 'war'?

What do you mean, "believe that"? It's like asking whether or not you believe in Thursday or whether you believe that train drivers actually drive trains. Yes, this is what happens. It's not a question of belief, and I'm at a loss to imagine where you find the room to disbelieve it. You're perfectly...

Re: Lock him up

I mean, he has a point. If you believe that fascists have been allowed to take over, and 'just opposing them politely' in the next election is liable to result in no more elections (which i suspect isn't the case). Then yes, calling for political violence (to oppose the state violence being done ev...

Re: new cold 'war'?

Ok, but have the people living in the area currently represented by North Shropshire been represented by a Tory for 200 years? Areas change. Parties change. The constituency that is currently North Shropshire didn't exist in the 1970s. The Tory Party in the 1800s doesn't much resemble the Tory Part...

Re: Lock him up

For those of you who don't know much about Piers Corbyn, he is the personification of the loony left. An ex-Labour Councillor and Marxist who believes (and I dare say Americans will find this particularly amusing) that climate change is a Conservative conspiracy started by Margaret Thatcher.

Re: Lock him up

The competition to achieve the title of biggest twat called Piers has been extremely hard fought in the UK for some time, but I reckon it's just been pinched by House Corbyn.

Lock him up

And now for a Christmas message from the veteran political campaigner, and elder brother of the former Labour Party leader, Piers Corbyn.

Re: new cold 'war'?

Tories held N. Shropshire constituency some two hundred (200) years, Beeb stated. The Beeb ain't what it used to be. The North Shropshire constituency was only created in the 1980s. Makes for a nice headline, but is mostly bollocks. Since its creation the Conservatives typically achieve around 50% ...

Re: new cold 'war'?

I don't know why the Bexley and Sidcup by-election result is supposed to have anything to do with this thread, Taylor? Did i hear the lib dems won? Or was that a different by-election? That was North Shropshire. Quite an interesting result. Not because the Tories lost, as whenever you have a long s...

Re: Is it time to rethink suffrage laws?

To vote you have to have died in a war. Otherwise, no vote for you. Sensible. And here we see Jamie supporting a policy of giving Hitler the vote... (for fans of long term Jamie-Oct discussions, and admittedly this is a club that has only one member, what we have here is a truth told in the general...

Trolling? In what sense is it trolling? It's just gentle humour, no different to some absurdist fun at a debating society.

Re: The Ashes 2021/2022

Right, England seem to have warmed up to match speed quicker than anyone had hoped. Saturday is hot and dry, the wicket is in good nick... we have a genuine chance of England batting all day and building up a defensible lead. Sunday weather is looking less good, with the potential to be overcast and...

Re: Is it time to rethink suffrage laws?

Simple solution. We keep the one man, one vote tradition... but extend the one vote across elections and television shows. You can use your vote for your favourite Eurovision song, or political party, or sports personality of the year, or X Factor contestant, but only ever one of those things. That ...
