  1. That's rich from the person who posted on here that so-and-so "had developed a really good forum persona" (whatever the f*** that is...?) but can't relate that to a shock jock. It's also worth remembering the BLM farrago where they deliberately set out to portray Stu as a racist based on zero evidence. Notwithstanding it ended up with no case to answer some of the mud clearly stuck as demonstrated on here. So I suspect he came across very well on the doorstep plus manifesto. So everything to play for. I guess we'll find out...
  2. Pleased that Lawrie Hooper and Stu Peters got in. Disappointed with Rushen though - "Two tickets please..."
  3. It's just that people like Naga Munchetty said she experienced an act of racism every day. Which is disgraceful really.
  4. How did you measure the level of activity?
  5. What has any of that got to do with him being a totally flawed character? I think you would get on well with Hilary Mantel. In a recent interview with La Repubblica she made several statements: On the monarchy “The popularity of monarchy as an institution is something that baffles me..." On the essay by JK Rowling where she believes demands by transgender activists were dangerous to women, which were described by LGBTQ+ advocacy groups as divisive and transphobic "The online attacks on Rowling are unjustified and shameful. “It is barbaric that a tiny minority should take command of public discourse and terrify those who disagree with them.” Finally on totally amoral narcissistic serial philanderer and inveterate liar Boris Johnson “I have met him a number of times, in different settings. I agree he is a complex personality, but this much is simple – he should not be in public life. And I am sure he knows it.” https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2021/sep/04/hilary-mantel-i-am-ashamed-to-live-in-nation-that-elected-this-government
  6. I'm a bit surprised the Taliban are training up Marines for a seaborne landing as the nearest coastline is about 500km away...
  7. So according to you racists did not vote for brexit? I am very interested in your reasoning behind this. Please explain.
  8. Hello Mr C, Well, as Bozo lied to the queen I should imagine their meetings are similar to those of Thatcher and an "icy formality" pervades everything. Two things made me mention it: The way Thatcher used to mix up Head of State with Head of Government The thought of the UK being a republic. Because the Monarchy will only fall by either it's own hand or via legislation. The word republic just makes me think of the totally morally bankrupt GOP. The tory party under Bozo, with their PPE scandals, their appalling record of failure dealing with the pandemic with the inevitable results of the highest rate of fatalities coupled with the deepest recession in Europe, their lies to the HoC, their attempts to disenfranchise voters with their "id" nonsense etc etc they are certainly getting more and more GOP-like all the time. No thanks... Besides if the most famous monarchy on the planet went a lot would go with it. For a start all those Guardsmen marching about in their red jackets and fur hats (known to all and sundry as "the woodentops") would have no monarchy left to guard leaving a lot of disappointed tourists milling about. On a more serious note it's the monarchy that holds The Commonwealth together. However I often wonder why the Queen during her Westminster speech on "her government" hem hem doesn't stop and exclaim "Why am I reading out this load of bollox!!!???" Now that would be a day to remember.... On the will of Phil the Greek I can't think why keeping it under wraps should be an issue? To my way of thinking this could be a PK "Chesterton's Fence" moment where I suspect there are hidden nuances behind the issue but I couldn't be arsed finding out what they are because to me it's not worth the effort i.e. we'll find out in 100 years anyway...
  9. Of course. All those who voted for brexit didn't have the faintest idea what brexit they were voting for. Was it Canada, Canada +, Canada ++, Norway, any nonsense dreamt up by Rees Mogg and his favourite fag Mark Francois and the rest of the Looney Tunes that make up the ERG, or the tax avoidance policies of newspaper owning Non-Doms or whatever...? Consequently, as brexit turns into the shit sandwich that they were all warned it would be, expect more "laughs" as it's a lot easier to bug "laughs" than it ever will be to try and justify the obvious massive folly that is the stupidity of pissing away the best deal in the best trading bloc on the planet due to lies, stupidity and racism thinly described as "immigration"...
  10. Steady on there. It's "xenophobic" but as long as the message is clear then who cares...?
  11. Pendantry will not change the contents of the GFA...
  12. You have produced zero data to refute all of the current downsides of brexit that are obvious to everyone. Fail...
  13. Especially as it's an "argument" you can't possibly win....
  14. What matters is the price we will ALL have to pay for the misled, misguided and deliberately misinformed folks who were duped into voting for brexit by the UK rabid right wing press in thrall to the agenda of the owner, which is to say pretty much all of it, and self-centred chancers like Farage, Gove and Johnson. At the Maastricht Treaty of 1992 the UK contingent left hardly believing their luck at having signed up with the best deal in the best trading bloc on the planet. All pissed away because it's a lot easier to believe a simple lie than it ever will be to understand a complex truth...
  15. Britain’s equality watchdog ‘colluding in denial of institutional racism’ Former employee accuses Equality and Human Rights Commission of ‘racial gaslighting’ in letter sent to colleagues .... also cited the EHRC’s positive response to the government-commissioned Sewell report on race and ethnic disparities, which was widely criticised, including by UN human rights experts who said it tried to “normalise white supremacy”. Kishwer Falkner, the chair of the EHRC, welcomed the report when it was published, saying it “identifies the varied causes of disparities” https://www.theguardian.com/society/2021/sep/19/britains-equality-watchdog-colluding-in-denial-of-institutional-racism
  16. Any country with upwards of 300 nuclear warheads is important. However it's full on "Sacré Bleu!" time...
  17. What a facile so-called argument. The EU is a democratic institution in which the UK played a part in the decision making processes. What, you think all those UK-elected MEP's just walked in off the street or something? In the very unlikely event they were formulating policies the UK couldn't or wouldn't enact then we could veto them. Unlike now.... The bottom line is that you simply can't ignore the world's largest single market area sitting on your doorstep. Unfortunately, exactly as the EFTA countries warned prior to that stupid referendum, the UK has gone from being an EU rule maker to just another EU rule taker trading with the EU under "third country" status with absolutely no say in the T&C's. Fools...
  18. Do you understand that every trade deal you make, like the "negative benefit to the UK" deal struck by Liz Truss with NZ, requires you to surrender some of your so-called "sovereignty" during the negotiations? Didn't think so....
  19. The extra paperwork etc on importing and exporting and adding inevitable cost to the bottom line is one of the many downsides of brexit. Having to add yet another layer of paperwork with conversion from imperial to metric and back again is, like leaving the Customs Union, beyond stupid. But as a sop to the hard of thinking it might have some traction as they pay increased prices for goods thanks to brexit...
  20. It really demonstrates the dire state of Manx so-called politics when at election time the potential of candidates hardly gets a mention compared to their selection on the grounds of damage limitation....
  21. @Chinahand Where do you stand on Boris Johnson not only lying to the electorate but also lying to the House of Commons time after time after time...?
