  1. Brexit negotiations thread

    Surprised there isn't already a thread. Negotiations officially began yesterday. Safe to say it probably didn't get off to a great start, although perhaps unsurprising. "In contrast to well-rehearsed EU positions on issues such as the financial settlement and Irish borders, British officials...

  3. Kidnapped girls forced to convert and sold for $12 each.

    MAIDUGURI, Nigeria (AP) — With a malevolent laugh, the leader of Nigeria's Islamic extremists tells the world that more than 200 kidnapped schoolgirls have all been converted to Islam and married off, dashing hopes for their freedom. "If you knew the state your daughters are in today, it might...

    Left and Right Wing Terrorists

    Not wanting to hijack the debate on what happened in Norway, I thought i'd start a new thread about left and right wing terrorists. From my observations (and these are just my opinions) it seems to me that there is a real difference between the two. It seems to me that right wingers actually go...

    Should Israel pull back to the '67 borders?

    Israel's stand leaves peace talks in tatters. http://www.guardian.co.uk/share/1561566 I think they should,so do the United Nations, Obama,the EU, and Russia.

    Being patriotic doesn't make you a fascist

    An interesting read, especially considering some of our recent discussion and debates on here. I'm a firm believer in this idea, and thank you Mr Billy Bragg for writing about it in this morning's Telegraph. ----------- A poll published this week suggested that the English were the least...

    Why don't I feel Christmassy yet?.....

    .....because I've realise what a ******* Santa is, that's why. I mean, aside from the dubious idea of an elderly man entering the bedrooms of sleeping children and emptying his sacks, what else does he do? Think about it: 1) Parking offences - how many parking tickets must he pick up with his...

    Sleeping Through The Dawn of Capello

    There’s something very special about setting your alarm to go off a couple of hours early and slipping out of bed to watch the sun come up. It’s uplifting to watch a new dawn break, with a mug of coffee in your hand. To think about the possibilities and the opportunities, to convince yourself...
