    Man, sometimes I wish there was a live fact check with a buzzer sound every time a politician says something that is an utter lie or a wet fart sound when it's mostly wrong or misleading.

    Obviously though Labour spending pledges will need to be fully costed and will still be considered completely unaffordable, the Magic Money Tree abhors Marxists, Socialists and generally being of use to anyone but the richest in society.
    Yes, their spending pledges are a consequence of fiscal responsibility and demonstration of such (and thus do not need costings or much in the way of scrutiny), whereas Labour spending pledges are always been reckless gambles with the economy and must be resisted at all costs. Tory pledges go to the deserving, Labour pledges go to the feckless.

    The oncoming GE is going to be an interesting insight into how the British people think money could and should be spent. We will have the Tories promising to balloon the budget with tax cuts for people on their wages, simultaneously fund and defund the NHS via cuts to NI and...farmers I guess, they will be pretty fucked when yanks start undercutting the shit out of them and they can't sell shit abroad thanks to boarders and tariffs and vitally they tend to vote Tory, so lots of money for them and their self inflicted mess.

    Vs.

    Actually owning shit. Fucking lunacy, the benefits of our privatised rail networks and the incredible levels of competition we saw amongst our Energy Companies alongside the record investment in our infrastructure not to mention the value for money that only privatisation can bring. Why the fuck would anyone want to spend money so that Generation Rent might actually be able to own something? They fucking love renting everything and no doubt their children will do too.

    Bound to? It is going to happen. The border in Ireland is being treated as an afterthought in the whole Brexit debacle on the british end, if it wasn't for the EU the people in Westminster wouldn't have even considered it a problem till after it became one.

    For some reason our Belgian, dutch speaking at least the french half is too infested with left wing clientelism to be critical enough. We have our state funded news program fact checking main political programs including their plan of funding, outrageous comments are dissected and laid out on what level they are true and what level they are not. This sort of thing should be in my opinion mandatory.

And I bet many will still, whilst their asses are getting fucked bloody, will still blame Poles for it, while the likes of Farage cheer on from the sidelines "Its the Muslims too!".



    Out of all the public services they want to demolish, this is the one that frightens me the most, it is also the one though that I think might just stir enough popular anger that there might be hope of a reckoning for those responsible.


    Couldn't agree more. The Britannia Unchained mob want to take us back a few centuries. The sad thing is that the people who will be hurt the most for this are playing an active role in facilitating it.







    I don't know how to feel about this one, nor do I want to derail. In the past, those on the left who are into grievance politics often made out (though didn't necessarily intend) that what was wrong with the people wanting to do massive harm to the country wasn't that they wanted to do massive harm to the country, but that they were white men. I always remember a meme with Lisa Simpson, saying how it is terrible, at least half of them should be women of colour, and now they get it, and I don't think they like it. I also found it amusing, reading the Guardian earlier, how it is almost as if they aren't real women or real ethnic minorities, that the advancement of women and ethnic minorities should be for those with the correct belief structure. I think it is unfair and misses that it is a symbol of real progress. The hammering of the working classes, disabled etc isn't solely the preserve of white men, white women and others of a different skin colour are now able to rise up and do it too. Is there a stronger symbol, or better measure of gender/race equality than that? Worth pondering.
    People often confuse those who are in favour of rights for the immigrants with the actual immigrants themselves. Immigrants aren't some sort of single minded entity and a lot of them are conservative minded, people often forget that muslim extremists and right wing extermists share the same big ideological ideas they only differ in believe of their magical entity. People also often forget that the people who generally abuse women and run whore houses are women, they are called madams.

    So yes everyone can be a bigot. Only for optics is his cabinet diverse, greed is and always will be a trait present in every human being.

    I mean... I have to applaud you, United Kingdom. You really keep finding new things...

    https://www.itv.com/news/2019-07-26/...0JOtzDIOiNd94M

    The new Leader of the House of Commons Jacob Rees-Mogg has instructed all staff in his new office to use imperial measurements and refer to ‘non-titled males’ as ‘esquire’.

    Issuing a style guide in the first week of his job, he also bans colleagues from using various words in correspondence with other MPs and the public.

    Among the list of bizarre rules, he asks staff not to use the words “got”, “very” or “equal”.


    I mean, really. This isn't me nation bashing, I am beginning to admire the process back to the middle ages. You can't say Brexit isn't consistent.

    Back to the Victorian age. The British stiff upper lip and love affair with formality, stiffness and the idealized past is sickening. It's sad to watch this once great empire slowly slide all the way down to global irrelevancy. The British delusion that they're still big, powerful and in charge is perhaps the saddest part of it all.

    Just look at this dude, get over yourself man.

    This sadly isn't, it is when you appoint a person stuck in time to the house leader. This is the real face of those who voted for Brexit a time back to lords and servants, a time filled with misogyny and bigotry.

    Great Britain the last western nation to not merely follow but admire a cast system, fucking disgusting and equally worse that the people of the UK are simply sitting by and letting this happen despite all their what i can call only now fake outrage about the EU, now being subjected as almost slaves to a government of fascist figures but i guess that is acceptable because it's the brits fucking the brits over, shame for the irish and scots but hey they were always simply sub humans in the eyes of the brits anyway.

    Some of them are a bit silly but others are kind of insidious.


    If you cant see the obvious intent behind discouraging phrases like 'equal', 'invest in' and 'no longer fit for purpose' you really need your head checking.

    Also, Imperial measurements are objectively worse and if you prefer them you're a bad person.

    No pleasing some people. For months remainers and EU fanatics have said the British position is not clear yet now it is, they are still moaning.

    So re-open the WA, remove the backstop and we can think about a deal.

    Otherwise, no deal = no problem, let's go WTO and start spending the EU's £39bn.

    Happy days.
    Brexiteers are the new remainers. To remain outside of the EU.
