    Why would anyone want to become a politician, if not for being able to build multiple stadiums on taxpayer's dime.

    Maybe this is just how it's going to be from now on. Too invested to just admit they fucked up and end it, but they know they can't actually do it.

    The UK is a man about to jump off a bridge while the EU is the cop trying to talk him down but really wishes he would just jump already because it's been ten hours.

    Will be veeeeerrrryyyy interesting if the EU for whatever reason don't grant an extension as there seems to be little to no realistic plan from the remain alliance if this situation happens to be an outcome.

    Anyhow, irrelevant of the outcome of brexit in October, lets bring on a GE and lets remove all the liars (and I don't mean brexiteers before any pro-remain people make that particular snipe, I mean those who stood on for parties and jumped to opposition parties that made their campaign promises null and void)

    In a new "Boris Johnson is Trump v. 2", the Brit decides that single mothers are shit:

    He did write this in 1995, but it's just more examples of sexism on him. He certainly hasn't tried to make up for it.

    Sounds like fairly typical beliefs of a conservative raised in the 70's. Maybe a smidge more old timey than most since modern people don't really throw around words like illegitimate child or dickensian hopes about workhouses or whatever. But i doubt it costs him any significant amount of votes, most conservative people adhere to beliefs in that general ball park. Children aren't brought up proper and it is because of the loss of the nuclear family and the lower classes sounds like a general talking point for any tory candidate. Sprinkle on something about immigrants and being too soft on crime and you've got the bog standard conservative

    Shall we talk about the history of Mr Corbyn? Should find that his history is much much worse than Mr Johnsons

    Because two of the worst dictator governments in the world (China and Russia) are or were communist.

    Communism is mostly socialism taken to an extreme, and extremes are never good, as history has shown again and again.

    Nothing really. But it doesn't earn you any points with the British electorate.

    Sadly more often than not true. Leaning pro-palestine politicians seem to invariably spill over into general anti-semitism. Oh i'm sorry i meant zionism, as comrade Corbyn says.

    Well i knew his sympathise tend to lie with the opressed masses in general so i wouldn't be suprised if he was sympathetic to the IRA cause. But i hadn't heard anything substantial about him being linked to homegrown terrorists

    Modern day China is about as communist as i am Hawaiian so we might as well just use the past tense here.

    True enough, but it still technically counts itself as communist officially. Unfortunately.

    It's more correct to say Socialism is Communism taken lightly, because the idea of socialism is to gradually evolve into communism.

    Being communist doesn't mean worshipping Stalin or Mao.

    There are many reasons as to why communism fails, and the "ideology itself" isn't an option imo.

    How very French of you, or maybe rather how European. I mean in mainland yuuurop theres a communist (or communistish) party in virtually every nation, they usually don't win more than a smattering of votes here or there, but they eke out a living being an everlasting fringe party. Meanwhile in the UK or the US the Communist party is like twelve men in bolshevik beards. Especially the US stamped down hard on any homegrown support, or anyone remotely sympathetic to communism really
