    I see 5thelephant has fallen for Johnson’s dead cat perfectly, anything to distract from him wishing away the NHS crisis & kids sleeping on the floor

    what was that about critical think 5th?

    Nothing to do with Boris. It’s about Corbyn. Vote for anyone who isn’t Corbyn.
    Otherwise you’ll be sleeping on the floor with everyone else, after eat your pets.

    The application of critical thinking is woefully underused.

    Very true. 30% intending to vote for Corbyn is testament to this.

    I see Boris is talking about looking at ending the BBC tax. That’s justified a win all by itself.

    But to more objectove eyes he’s a figure that divides, not unites. And the point made earlier that Tory’s have the monopoly on Cronyism, look to Diane Abbot. Why is she still in the Shadow Cabinet? It’s not because she’s good, is it? Could it be coz she bumped uglies with Jez in the good old days?

    To be fair to Diane every other Labour MP had alr…[Read more]

    You might think Corbyn is literally Beelzebub incarnate

    Good point well made.

    but this is a general election with stakes that could impact the lives your grandchildren’s kids, not a popularity contest.

    Absolutely. Vote for anyone but Beelzebub incarnate.

    Have you eve been to Salford?

    I lived in Middlesbrough. Even there actual riots weren’t routine weekend events.

  • 5thElefant replied to the topic The French in the forum Chat Forum 1 week ago

    Hyperbole much? Not sure you’ve lived through that many civil wars if you can say that.

    Would you accept the constant riots for a year (or more?) as normal here?

    At least the empathy part of his brain is still working well

    For the many, not the Jew.

  • 5thElefant replied to the topic The French in the forum Chat Forum 1 week ago

    I think the Uk is much worse off society-wise.

    French society is barely better than civil war. They’ve had constant riots for a year and it barely makes the news. If half a dozen of the unwashed have a scuffle with the police it’s national news here.

    There are various plan for sentry guns (youtube is a good starting point). Usually for nerf guns. Stopping it targeting your cat may be possible with rfids. More hassle than a cat flap but much more entertaining.

    Why is corporation tax a stealth tax? Everyone knows about it. It’s only payable on cash that you sit on instead of paying workers or spending. Try harder Mr Troll!

    It’s a stealth tax because people think they’re not paying it. Like every other tax it’s passed on to the customer. Which would be you and I.

  • 5thElefant replied to the topic 2019 General Election in the forum Chat Forum 1 week ago

    Not all of it – taxing foreign companies doing business here will bring money into the country.

    Getting rid of corporation stealth tax would encourage companies to setup here and bring money into the country.

    Put cat flap on inbound only. Give the other cat an experience it doesn’t want to repeat.

  • Why are you wasting your money, your diet provides more protein than you need even if like me you’re a vegetarian.

    Spent my life doing a heavy physical job farming, never needed the aid of extra protein.

    A photo of you in your pants would add credibility to your claim.

    Whatever he clearly only speaks for a section of the jewish community

    Probably a sections making up about 80%

    5th – personally I would prefer a proper federal UK. An independent Scotland is a second best to that but its a damn sight better than remaining in a hard right UK with brexit which would be an utter disaster.

    Fair enough. I’d be happy with that too.
    I really struggle to see why a unified Ireland wouldn’t be a good thing though.

  • 5thElefant replied to the topic 2019 General Election in the forum Chat Forum 2 weeks ago

    So if the polls are to be believed ( and I really doubt it) then a tory government and the forthcoming hard brexit will inevitably lead to the breakup of the UK, a united ireland and an independent Scotland

    Do those English leavers really think that a price worth paying?

    Why is this a bad thing? You want an independent Scotland.

    There aren’t people voting to keep Corbyn out.

    I assume most people are, at least partially. I hadn’t voted for 25 years and only started again because of Corbyn.

    Unfortunately for the faithful it’s all lies. As the underacted documents are available the lies won’t get much traction going forward.

    All it does is play into the Tory narrative (here’s the rebuttal):

    “Jeremy Corbyn is getting desperate and is out-and-out lying to the public about what these documents contain. He has always believed in c…

    Corbyn wisely doubling down on the USA wanting to do away with the way the NHS works to reduce the price paid to USA companies for drugs. This one needs hammering home.

    The underacted documents are on order order.
