Left Unity is the party to vote for, it has links with Syriza in Greece. Left Unity

I don't know if they have candidates yet where I will be voting.

Can you vote in UK AND Canadian elections Hev? The LU statement on their site can't really be disagreed with, but they are too small a party to make any msjor difference. It might be a feel good vote but what real good will it do? And yes every party has to start somewhere .....


Yes, I can vote in both elections.

The Podemos party in Spain came from nowhere, who knows, people are fed up.

Good for you...

...but who to vote for - that is the question! Saying that, the face on the right does look like a troll & a live one at that :-)

Says the millionaire who's never done a hard day's work in his life!

I'm going to have to think about it. Who are the radical left wingers running? I get a postal vote for the borough I last lived in.

There will also be an general election here in Canada this year, so I can vote in that one too. That's an easier choice for me to make. I will be voting NDP.

She may well have been given an OBE to shut her up, although she says she didn't want it. The Black Gay Babies is true, I'm trying to find it. Was it in Vauxhall?

Honestly, Ooooooh, my dads bigger than your dad, nyah


Keep digging yourself a hole, Chris.

Indeed.

Don't you hear yourself talking? Radical views? You think that again, noting a very simple fact, is having a radical view?

You know whats a radical view? An actually dangerous view? A downright fascist view? The bull you have been saying right here right now. The idea that someones opinion is dangerous. That facts are dangerous. That if the facts or opinion don't stroke with the governments or intelligence agencies views, those facts and opinions should be suppressed, kept away, be silenced. And that in order to do such a thing, all public message boards in the world should be closely monitored, its members screened and those with 'radical views' should be put on no fly lists and other government watch lists.

This is textbook Göring, latching on some horrible terrorist event to suppress civil liberties and personal freedoms, supposedly out of public safety, expanding government powers to an absurd degree, and everyone who calls this nonsense out is either a dangerous 'radical' or doesn't live in the 'real world' or is generally unpatriotic.

Yep.

Stop playing the "race-baiting" card Gobba.

I've seen enough of your posts to know exactly where you stand on this issue.

Its not so called race-baiting to point out that people are being judged and treated differently based on their colour.

If you find it difficult to even hear that, just imagine how difficult it is to have to live with it every day.

The Art of War is not an art you understand or are talented in.

Coming from a bookworm with no experience himself to rely on is insulting to say the least.


It's amazing what you can learn from books. They are so powerful that now and again dictators have to burn them.

Well one of the times it happened was in the afternoon. While my black friends would be stopped by the police on a regular basis for running for the bus, I got a ride home once for holding up a bus for over an hour after the bus conductor falsely accused me of not paying the correct fare. Have you ever been stopped by the police for running for a bus?

I've just got an extreme stubborn streak when I know I'm right. Luckily I'm white and the police simply give me a ride home when I've dug my heels in over something.

Hold on, that story is two separate matters in one. Firstly it is being suggested that the police would usually think that a black man running is doing so, because he is more likely than a white person to have done something wrong, and is legging it away from the scene of the crime. That is pure racism, based on colour, unless there are police stats to the contrary.

The second matter is one of alleged fare dodging. Standing up for ones personal principles is perfectly laudable, but when it inconveniences others to a large degree, that could even be seen as a bit selfish. Could it be that the police deliberately drove you home to make sure that you didn't cause any more trouble that day?

In the UK that wouldn't have happened, within 5 minutes the driver would have called for a police presence, you would have been "escorted" off the bus, and the vehicle allowed to continue on it's way. The matter would then have been dealt with, one way or the other. I would have paid up, then gone straight down to the Bus Managers office and given them bloody hell, with a full report to the local papers. And demanded compensation and a public apology for being falsely accused.

From ES's general experiences over the last couple of years I don't think I'd want to live in Canada!


Wrong Chris, the bus incident happened in Central London UK. Plenty of other buses for people to take.

Racist? [yes you are]

Well actually, no I'm not.

Extremely unlikely. I'm sure ES99 will be able to identify hundreds of ways you are, which you don't even realize exist.


I agree Gary, the internalized racism is unconscious and although you can be non racist in a conscious/rational way, when you become conscious of your own racism then it is very uncomfortable. But becoming aware of how much we are, is a step in the right direction. I think this is also one of the problems also with institutionalized racism, not being aware that it exists.

It is very complex.

And in keeping with the blood on Blair's hands there was also the mysterious death of David Kelly, the United Nations weapons inspector in Iraq..

"After telling Her Majesty's Government there were no weapons of mass destruction (WMD) in Iraq. He told David Broucher, a former British Ambassador. "I will probably be found dead in the woods."
When he was found dead in the woods Tony Blair was asked.
“Have you got blood on your hands.” Blair refused to answer."

Who Killed Kelly?

So you are not going to explain what you found so offensive about the post you bought up, despite being so outraged about it?

Now that there's another break in the cricket I'll answer you.

The reason has already been posted, but I'll explain it a bit more clearly just for your benefit.

I've been kicking around many forums since '97 and I'd have imagined that you should've been around long enough to have come across this as well (but I could be wrong), whether written or not, it has always been regarded as extremely offensive to bring someone else's family into a discussion like that just to make a point, in a lot of forums doing this would get you permanently banned.

It's ok for someone to bring their own family into a discussion, but not for someone else to do so, that's just regarded as the lowest of low acts.

Now do you understand why people react the way they do when this is done?

BTW, just for the record, I've yet to be banned or put on holidays from any forum that I've ever been involved with and I've also been a mod in several of them so maybe that will explain where I'm coming from to your satisfaction.

Now it's back to the cricket for me.

Edited for spelling, wording and punctuation mistakes.


Could you please source these rules for me? I have never heard of them, perhaps if they exist they should be put in the forum rules.

Although it seems unfair to bring your own family into a discussion to make a point but not to let others respond to this point.

Hang all war criminals!

No, celttooth. Civilised countries do not have capital punishment. Civilised countries do not have torture either.

And, in civilised countries, everybody is innocent until proven guilty. Therefore Osama bin Laden was murdered as an innocent man, however much he might have been a suspect. He was never brought before court. I would rather, the proper procedure to be followed.


While I can sympathise with Celttooth's sentiments (and I have this constant vision of lamp posts in my mind) I agree that civilised countries do not have capital punishment or torture.

I would like to see these criminals brought to justice along with Tony Blair and his accomplices, remembering that our morals must be better than theirs. They all have blood on their hands.

Psst, Russell, are you aware that fools like you are giving UKIP all the free publicity they want?


Thanks for the link, Sirius, to Question Time. I'm a great fan of Russell Brand and Enoch Powell was wrong.
