Re: General Election

Oh of course it's hypocritical, but you'd need some form of moral and ethical code at all for that to be a concern.... ;) But on a wider note it's something that I see dealt with inconsistently across all spheres. For example, Wagner wrote brilliant music, but was an horrific anti-semite. Does that ...

Re: General Election

And really, the first female MP was Sinn Fein's https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Constance_Markievicz who refused to take her seat.

But still: the first female sitting MP is worthy of recognition, despite her views, same with the first female PM etc.

Re: General Election

That’s a weak and slightly shameful defence. There is more than enough written, researched and read into the the debate to conclude that Islamaphobia is a racialised discourse. Someone of your intellect should know better than to deny it. It says something that that's what motivates you to join the...

Re: General Election

Once again, you're hilarious. There's a big difference between making mistakes when you're younger and continuing to exhibit them in your professional life. Trump actively advocates racism in his job as president; and is completely unapologetic for it. If you can't tell the difference, there's no ho...

So multiple incidents of blatant racism are ok so long as you do the "right" thing. Got it.
Yawn.

Far better to support an isolationist agenda, eh? Johnson's racist and chauvinist comments are clearly fine, for example, cause he's just being silly, innit.

Re: General Election

Yes, because the EU itself isn't really the issue in my view. Avoiding a move towards isolationism is.

As for Trudeau, on balance his approach certainly seems to fall on the side of doing the right thing, albeit with a glaring mistake in his past. Unlike the likes of Farage, Johnson, Rees Mogg....

Re: General Election

So we have a choice of probable economic ruin when leaving the EU under Johnson, or probable economic ruin from McDonnelll and Corbyn's £150 billion borrowing (with nothing credible lined up to spend it on) plan. Searches house prices in Canada . A blackfaced PM is preferable? Cause nobody is ever ...

Re: General Election

Aside from his meddling in the sordid Carl Beech affair, I think he's actually been a steadying ship in terms of policy. Probably the precursor to Labour shifting further left and merging with the socialist workers.... Now if only Corbyn and McDonnell would follow suit, there might be a decent oppos...

Re: Brexit....or in.

You're hilarious and delusional. I'm not the one arguing a police investigation into someone following up a referral by the Electoral Commission is actually because someone else got a fine from the ICO. That would be a textbook example of a delusion. The facts are not your friend here. How deep a h...

Re: General Election

And that surprises you how, exactly?

He's an upper class twit playing politics cause it's a game, with absolutely no comprehension of what normal people live like; and you can throw in a complete lack of integrity to boot.

It's exactly the sort of response I'd expect.

It's called correlation. They're being investigated for a variety of reasons, including but not limited to misuse of data, illegal marketing, funding irregularities and so on during their actions over the leave campaign. And given the nature of the campaigns and their reliance upon one another, the ...
