  1. Politics Thread (encompassing Brexit) - 21 June 2017 onwards

    Not to mention when Labour nationalise everything and remove anti strike laws they will allow the Unions to hold us to ransom and turn off our water when they feel they need a pay rise, the costs would probably go up. The problem with nationalised institutions is they are accountable to no-one, the incentive to be cost effective is not there especially if you keep throwing more money at it which Labour would. None of our services are badly funded currently, they are just badly run. They need an independent review to be conducted on the structures and I think billions could be released to the front line. Sadly the management in the public sector are only interested in preserving themselves and their cronies at the cost of people below them, I have seen it first hand in numerous public sector organisations.

    You only have to look at the Labour shadow cabinet and the average member of momentum to see that there is absolutely no evidence to support this. Somebody who leans slightly to the right is not less intelligent than someone who leans slightly to the left. What I will say is that those with extreme views either left or right are complete and utter idiots. Attending university does not make a clever person, a clever person requires something some graduates do not have - common sense.

    I'm not saying its correct I am saying that I don't remember anyone asking questions of us signing the Lisbon Treaty for example which ceded a large number of unnecessary sovereign powers to the EU and in my believe is the reason why we are eventually going to end up out of the single market and out of Europe which I personally think is/will be bad. Remember the Tories tried to get a referendum held on it, and Labour 'forced it through' without anyone knowing the true facts on what we have given up. A European trading block is great and I fully support, the ideas of Heath, Thatcher are they way Europe should work. The idea that there should be a European state is very bad. The EU is an unelected behemoth that needs serious reform and modernisation. The EU should be more of a partnership between countries retaining their sovereignty and not the supreme ruler that it seems to want to be. They need to learn how to compromise, it very much seems a case of their way or no way, they need to accept they have fundamental flaws in their treaties, and they need to look at free movement between countries with huge economic disparity - it can not work! before they can do that they need to look at ways of improving living standards in those countries and the question is why countries with such huge disparities were allowed to enter in the first place. Major agreeing to enlarge the EU to the east is probably one of the biggest failings ever, the entry of countries with such huge differences in living standards was always going to cause massive problems. It is possible to have free movement between countries with broadly similar living standards, but you put a country with the living standards of Romania in and allow free movement, where will the flow of people go? and you cant blame them either!

    This is so true. The remain camp seem to be bleating on about this Henry VIII Crap but they were perfectly happy for numerous treaties to be signed with the EU in the 90s and 2000s mostly under Blair's Labour government giving our laws away to an unelected bunch of Europeans. You can't have it both ways! I'm sure if Labour were doing it people wouldn't care as much because they are the kind caring party.
  6. Unpopular Opinions You Hold

    Politically left leaning people are generally nasty, horrible, spiteful, pretentious, self righteous pillocks who think they are better, more educated and morally superior than others. They exuberate fake outrage over everything and pretend they are kind and caring yet they frequently call people who disagree with them (scum, thick, racist) etc.. and join groups of total ****wits like momentum who believe in crime and bullying.

    You could argue that all kinds of beliefs contravene or could contravene human rights. People may argue that cuts are inflicting the 'human rights' of certain groups, you could argue that mass immigration if affecting peoples human rights, that taking money from people and redistributing it is against the person who earned the moneys human rights. Labour and the Tories have supported dubious regimes now and in the past! and will doubtless continue to do so to suit their policitical agenda. At what point do we stop? Its very difficult to do it without agenda. Do you ban all strict Catholics and Muslims from office because of their religious beliefs?
  8. Politics Thread (encompassing Brexit) - 21 June 2017 onwards

    I would love to know how! The solution is probably to live a much simpler lifestyle preferably without money but making the rest of society conform would be difficult.
  9. Politics Thread (encompassing Brexit) - 21 June 2017 onwards

    If you disagree with someone is the best thing not to do to ignore them, it wont give them a platform if everyone does that. They are his personal views, he has made it clear that is down to his religion, many Catholics believe the same. Many Muslims also believe some pretty terrible things too, at what point do we stop? Unless we ban religion. Again, people haven't made this fuss over Naz Shah who has persistently made abhorrent comments, or Dianne abbot? I wonder why? Who decides what views are abhorrent and/or what is an acceptable view to hold in office? Ken Livingston is a massive bellend but he was Mayor of London once. We are already aware that May is a mad lunatic but she is still a safer lunatic than that Jeremy bloke Where do we draw the line?

    I absolutely can. You summarised the reason above in your first line. If all lefties had that attitude it would be fine, its the holier than thou thing which is the problem and leads me to having digs. People can have their views, great we can debate them. We have to agree overall that not one system is perfect, no person is perfect and no system will ever be perfect as it is open to the greatest problem, human ego, greed and the inbuilt function to survive at all costs.
  11. Politics Thread (encompassing Brexit) - 21 June 2017 onwards

    Point I am making is that people mostly should be allowed to say what they want whatever side they are on and whatever their beliefs. Human rights I am sure would exist if left to the centre ground as they should be, of course go too far to the left and you get Gulags!! I am well aware all regimes support dubious regimes and have never denied that, what I am trying to point out here is that many on the left have a holier than thou view about human rights, freedom of speech etc unless someone is saying something they don't like. For me people can say what they like and do what they like. What we cant start doing is criticising JRM for being honest about his beliefs, and not do the same on the other side! I have no problems with anyone views they are perfectly entitled to have their own views and judgements, it doesn't mean any of us have to think they are right, or be friends with them or vote for them or whatever. JRM would never get a mandate to implement any of his religious beliefs from the public, so really his views are irrelevant.

    I don't think it was to do with Social media is was just speaking out about it in general which they should. She is saying women raped should be told to 'shut up' to protect 'diversity' what a load of crap. We need to show dirty bastards for what they dirty bastards, if a particular community has a particular problem then they need to address it, in the open properly - not cover it up. This was the problem in the first place, no one dared speak out in case it was deemed 'racist' I wonder how often this happens up and down the country. She did also suggest all Jews be relocated. Not a nice woman at all and if JRM is unfit for office so should she. If we are going to ban people from office for extreme views, there's quite a long list in the Labour party. Diane Abbott another openly racist front bencher. Corbyn has long supported left wing regimes with dubious human rights records, McDonnell got out his little red book at the dispatch box.

    Telling the girls abused in Rotherham to shut their mouths! http://metro.co.uk/2017/08/23/mp-shares-tweet-saying-abuse-victims-should-shut-their-mouths-for-good-of-diversity-6872181/
  14. Politics Thread (encompassing Brexit) - 21 June 2017 onwards

    In that case then does the fact that Naz Shah expresses her abhorrent views openly without any recourse in the Labour party, tell you everything that we need to know about Labour, the unions, momentum and the people they are happy to represent them??

    What has the actions of a probably TUC or NASUWT Union influenced socialist brainwashing school got to do with Gove? no idea?
