  1. But, but, but ...you have made it so very clear that any posts on this stream that even mentions something outside of the UK is an affront and threat to our very democratic way of being. Surely the blue light strapped to your head is flashing furiously.
  2. I think I might be a bit more cynical than you on this, Sonyc. It would seem odd that a party and government committed to free market principles could be so ignorant of the actual and potential financial benefits of an industry that generates over £10 billion annually to the UK economy. An ideological disdain (even hatred) for the arts seems to be at work here. The arts are a bastion for those willing to exercise open-minded critical thinking, and naturally draws in those tolerant of diversity and experimentation in human experience. Unsurprisingly the arts tend to be a natural home for people with left of centre views. Accordingly the arts have been savaged throughout the 14-years of this corrupt government who wish to be free of the scrutiny of artistic thinking they find such an irksome challenge.
  3. Agree with all that. But even those heathens who couldn't care less for the arts should acknowledge that they remain one of the UK's biggest source of revenues, as well as being one of the few industries in which we just about remain a world leader (drawing in huge numbers of tourists).
  4. Oh dear Fen! Your mate LYB is going to be furious with you discussing Trump on the general election stream. Expect him to call you a moron very shortly
  5. How many schoolkids marched alongside the leader of the National Front?
  6. He just doesn't have the nipples to make a peephole bra work.
  7. I believe it was discovered that beneath his immaculate attire he was found to have regularly sported Lady Penelope's stockings, suspenders, crotchless knickers, and a peephole bra. I think Parker was a a bit of a perv as well.

  9. halfwit hypocrite talks about slavery in a general election thread
  10. FFS! READ THE DAMN POST, or get someone who understands plain English to read it for you and explain. I said it was a fine start to what was going to be a bloody great WEEK. THE WEEK IN WHICH THE UK GENERAL ELECTION IS HAPPENNING. Moron!
  11. It was no different for Sunak and Starmer on their appearances on BQT. They too were faced with a barrage of hostile audience questions. That's rather the point of the show.
  12. "Up the RA" as in a well known IRA chant that Farage was happy to chant over the internet for an £87 fee.
  13. Read the post halfwit. Its subject matter is the events of NEXT WEEK. Even an idiot like you is probably aware that something relevant to the general election is happening NEXT WEEK, i.e. the general election 🤣
  14. Have a little guess about what is happening on the 4th of next week. Perhaps you haven't heard so might need to google it.
  15. A fine start to what's going to be a bloody great week https://www.msn.com/en-gb/news/uknews/steve-bannon-must-report-to-prison-on-july-1-after-supreme-court-rejects-last-ditch-appeal/ar-BB1p55tu?ocid=msedgntp&pc=LCTS&cvid=16b29a81c7d24dd9b059b500d0502cdf&ei=18
  16. The Tory laundrette: Donor donates to the Tories. Tories pay donor multi millions of taxpayer's money in contracts. Donor donates a small percentage of that taxpayer's money back to the Tories. Repeat ad infinitum
  17. It certainly pays well if you're a Tory Party donor. You get your donation back and then some. https://www.msn.com/en-gb/news/uknews/companies-linked-to-tory-donors-given-8-4bn-in-public-contracts-since-2016/ar-BB1p0jKQ?ocid=msedgntp&pc=LCTS&cvid=7d8e5b19bf9047449f37fe875d862310&ei=9
  18. Yet another Reform UK Ltd candidate exposed as a racist https://www.msn.com/en-gb/news/uknews/reform-uk-drops-candidate-revealed-to-have-been-bnp-member/ar-BB1p0cBR?ocid=msedgntp&pc=LCTS&cvid=011c706722024f6fb2ceb98d642831c6&ei=20
  19. The poorest photoshop I've seen in ages. Was it the work of a 4-year old?
  20. Highlights perfectly the problem with such "legal" bets by those with skin in the game. A Luton Town footballer would have been entirely rational to think his team would get thrashed by Manchester City. Had one of them sought to make a few quid by betting on such a result, the Luton Town fans would have been entirely rational to see such a bet as a massive breach of trust. Our legal system in many ways represents the bare minimum standards beyond which society refuses to let people plummet without punishment as a consequence. Our ethical values represent standards that we wish people to aspire to in rising above the bare minimum. If we can't expect those who put themselves forward as candidates to sit in our parliament to aspire to higher ethical values and principles, then we truly are in an awful mess.
  21. I'm sure all his supporters knocking on doors, stuffing envelopes, etc, will be delighted to share in his winnings.
