    I'd hope the majority of the UK wouldn't care, be they Tory, Labour, Lib Dem.

    I think you do the great majority of the UK voting public an injustice MK. They couldn't give a toss whether they're black, white, brown, bi, gay or straight. As long as they are sincere, honest and they believe they can deliver what they say they can they'll get voted for.

    Question. Are you seriously suggesting the majority of those of voting age are homophobic?

    I really don't know BB. There's still a great deal of homophobia out there - I bet Rees Mogg would have an issue with it.

    Once You Clear The Bodies
    “There’s a group of UK business people, wonderful guys … And they literally have a brilliant vision to turn Sirte … into the next Dubai. The only thing they’ve got to do is clear the dead bodies away and then they’ll be there.” – Boris Johnson, British Foreign Secretary, September 2017
    Come now, native, wipe that tear
    all’s not lost, this time next year
    we’ll build a shopping centre here
    well, once you clear the bodies.

    Bring on the low-tax Costa Blanco
    BoJo’s on it! Chin-up, sambo!
    What you want’s a brand new Nando’s
    once you clear the bodies.

    That’s it! Swap that spear for lucre!
    Get some air con. Splendid. Super.
    Apple. Gucci. Rayban. Uber.
    Once you clear the bodies.

    I feel for you, hey, I’ve read Brooke.
    War’s a horrid thing, now look,
    it’s British Airways! Thomas Cook!
    Once you clear the bodies.

    So grab a broom! Yes, quickly please
    We’ll bring ol’ Blighty’s expertise.
    No, me no speako Bongo-ese.
    Just clear the bloody bodies.

    The friendly guns have done their bit.
    Shock doctrine strikes! Now dig that pit!
    We’ll build a massive mall right here, and you can work in it.
    Once you clear the bodies.

    A few people post regularly on all of the politics threads - it's an interest so there are always things you want to air.


    There is news about the Tories coming out every day/hour at the moment and pretty much all of it is bad news, so those that want to discuss it are likely to be anti.


    I did ask if anyone had anything positive to say about the Tory conference but no one replied.

    Personally, I'm loving it that the Tories are all over the news these days.That can only be good for Labour.

    But nobody has the right to insult the Russian people - who defeated Nazism and lost more than 25 million people - by comparing our country to Nazi Germany.

    That goes beyond common sense."

    I bet you are. Especially when it means certain stories don't make the news. You know, stories like ********* inviting to the Houses of Parliament people who believe that Israel was behind 9/11 and is behind ISIS.

    Just seen Michael Heseltine on C4 news predicting that the Tories under May won't survive to see the Brexit process through and Jeremy Corbyn will probably be the next pm.I make him right on both counts.
