Interesting analysis from the NY Times

Did Conservatives Gain from a Leftward Drift?

Not only is Russell Brand in favour of voting for Labour but so is Stephen Hawking.

Russell Brand urges support for Labour

Bit hypocritical of him isn't it? After it's not that long past where he urged people not to vote!

So which is it?

Especially since we're now a fortnight past the registration deadline.

Not sure Hev realised that :-)

The problems with people like Brand is that they don't realise they are much worse than any corrupt politician. With todays youth having their heads stuck in social media & idolising celebrities, many will listen to them rather than politicians.

As for communications from the "other" parties, not 5 minutes ago, received 2 flimsy leaflets - UKIP & Labour - still nothing from the blues...

...well as the "Blues" won the premier league on Sunday, let's hope that all the blues win this month :-)

I am well aware of the registration deadline as I am registered to vote as well.
As for your sneering at young people in general:
so yes. some of them will be listening to Russell Brand

I personally believe that we will do the best that we can for our country. What else can I say?

food bank Britain

If you are looking for a "reason" to vote Lib Dem, I have given you the best info that I can.

This is one of the reason I joind the Hunt Sabs.
West Country

From the article:
Labour has promised to defend the ban, the Conservatives say they will offer parliament a free vote on repealing it, while the Liberal Democrats say hunting is not a priority, but would allow their MPs a free vote if the issue arises.

and here? From the article:

The 2010 Conservative manifesto said the Hunting Act was "unworkable" and promised a free vote by MPs on its repeal.

The party says it remains committed to this if it wins a parliamentary majority in May.

Curiouser and curiouser. So that you can pat yourself on the back again,
My honest view is to either vote Conservative or Lib Dem,

you're actively endorsing the possibility of a return to fox hunting. Wow.

I have spoken to a lot of Uni students,

Did you speak to them in the same disrespectful way you speak to them on these boards? For a project that has an appeal to all ages and is attracting a new and younger set of users as a result of the world visualisation map on facebook, you're hardly a welcoming ambassador. Your dismissal of whole nations, even continents, whilst waving your colonial empire flag is not befitting to an international science project either, surely?

I live in a Uni town, that were initially quite hostile towards the Lib Dems because of this. But when it was explained to them why it happened they have all said OK, we can understand a lot more now, we never knew that before, we never got told. And in fact it was only publicised for the first time last autumn.

Four years to craft an excuse for betraying a generation? Wow - must have been hard.

Up to you guys as to what you vote, but I would urge not to vote Labour, I'd rather anything than them!!

So you'd endorse the TUSC then? They pledge to scrap zero hour contracts and curb exhorbitant rents.

Cameron has 5 years of experience under his belt. He IS a Prime Minister, He LOOKS a prime Minister, and ACTS like a Prime Minister. a pig who has spent a lot of time at the trough throughout.

I want to see him back in No.10, but under control, and only the Lib Dems can do that. It is vitally important that we get as many Lib Dem seats as possible on the 7th, only then can we keep this country on the straight and narrow for the next 5 years.

Straight and narrow? Britain's richest Tory MP, property tycoon Richard Benyon, receives at least £625,000 a year in housing benefit from having struggling tenants and more than £2million in EU subsidies for his farms.

Tory peer Lord Cavendish, received £106,938 in housing benefit last year from his tenants going through hard times.
Tory donor Sir Richard Sutton received £67,521 in from West Berkshire Council. Even after they die, they keep raking it in. The estate of one of Britain’s richest men, the billionaire Earl of Cadogan, a Tory donor, received £116,400 in benefit from Kensington and Chelsea Council last year.

UKIP’s housing spokesman Andrew Charalambous received £745,351 in housing benefit from his tenants. That's just a few examples. The legalised corruption in British politics runs deep throughout all parties.

When the Conservatives introduced housing benefit under Margaret Thatcher, it was never about helping struggling tenants. It was always about allowing their donors and MP's to rake in ever more money from higher rents. The last five years have been spent demonising those at the bottom. And that's just one of your "straight and narrow" ambitions, and is precisely why people like Russell Brand have garnered attention. It's wrong. The right to vote was hard won, but it's mainstream parties that have eroded the desire to vote and you keep on endorsing two out of three of those. Leaving almost everyone else in this thread to endorse UKIP, which is an utterly repellent party to many.

As to this:

I suggest you differentiate, because 2 out of three are sexist and actionable

Preach it sister!


You asked what people think about the university student that posts here? I assume you are talking about Мишель?
Well we think that he is a smart young man who clearly likes to think about the whys and hows of the world. I may not agree with him on everything, but I see someone who is trying to enlighten themselves and he is certainly a rational and welcome addition to these message boards. Is that what you wanted to know?

I support this post.

I also was about to complain about the use of the T-word used by Chris S, thank you tami for bringing this up.

Humans are animals and both can and do abuse

Yes Glenn. Thats very true.
Humans and animals now have three genders. Female, male and other.
That's making this thread very odd.
Are victimized females suffering more than then two other victimized genders?

Why don't you just stop. The title of the thread is: Against ALL women - Infanticide, Slavery, Rape, Trafficking...(#2)

Again, it is about all women, if you wish to open another thread to discuss the three genders please feel free.

You and the other unreconstructed males in this thread are just proving the points we are trying to make.

Are you saying the Jews who own the Hollywood media are biased? Who would have thunk it? ;-)

I'm sorry, I don't understand your question.

The problem with feminism today is that it has gone too far. When you see successful women on TV getting attacked by feminists when they state that feminists do not speak for them, makes one wonder...

...Are the current feminists against successful women because...

A: They made it in a man's world
B: They're stunningly beautiful & used that beauty to achieve their success
C: A+B

...whereas they are fat & frumpy, unattractive, been abused, lack self confidence & rather than change their outlook, attack others?

It seems in today's world, men are seen as a target by these "feminists" yet do not attack those women whose motto is: -

"If you've got it, flaunt it" & do financially well from that.

It would be nice if "women" all sang from the same hymn book, until that happens, we'll continue to see these "battles"

I used to have some respect for you Sirius.

And ended...

Is that what it will take to make you stop? If I thought it would mean an end to being subjected to the dehumanising experience of having to read posts like this

I can only say:

You are the 'Dehumanizing' one.

Don't like my Post. Subject me to your 'Inner Darkness'.

Who cares?

You can sod off as well, I'm also sick of the misogyny and patronising crap in this thread.

Added: thank you tami

I am quite sure that I speak for everyone here when I say that we all have the utmost respect for ES99 and her views about feminism and female equality, I most certainly do. But it has to be realised that a lot of other people don't think that way, and the extremists on the fringe do not do the crusade any good. And yes it is a crusade, it shouldn't have to be by rights, but it is, and I support it.

But lets not get too thin skinned about it at times.

Please tell us how to run the crusade, Chris.

Shame on you Canada.

Thanks for the link Sirius. It is a shameful business and plenty of people have called for a public enquiry, but "Um it, it isn't really high on our radar, to be honest...Our ministers will continue to dialogue with those who are concerned about this." Stephen Harper on a public inquiry into missing aboriginal women.

And there you have it.

No ES is a militant female feminist and voluntary moderator who should leave this forum!

Why on earth do you want to close the politics forum just because you don't like it Chris? If you don't like it stay away and I'm not going to answer your poll you've put up, it's unnecessary.

I've been very impressed on the whole with level of some debates on this forum and learned a lot from them.

Just please stop doing this, you are not the seti policeman.

There is the thought and then there is the deed. Women's love of men or women's hatred of men is immaterial to what is happening. Women's feelings about what happens to them is immaterial because they do not wield the power that can enable to act on those feelings in the same way a man can. That is the point of the article.

Playing DA a little bit here (and I admit I have not read the article yet)... what if women did have the power to act upon those feelings? Would hating men still be OK? If yes, why? If no, then why is it OK for them to hate men without power? Either way it looks like hate begets hate and is no solution to the problem.

Why didn't you read the article before replying? It is quite short and I thought rather gentle.

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.
