  1. Media reporting Trump has informed Macron that he’s pulling the US out of the JCPOA and reimposing sanctions on Iran.
  2. Obama has tapped John Kerry for Secretary of State, with Hillary Clinton resigning. He should easily be approved, meaning Massachusetts be short one senator and will have it's second special election for senator in three years. It's possible that the seat goes to a Republican, (most likely Scott Brown again) so this is a risky move by Obama. The early consensus is that Ted Kennedy Jr. will run for the Dems.
  3. Think this needs its own thread so labour fans who do you fancy? I am tipping Chuka Umunna as Labour need a complete revamp and modernising after this disaster election. seems to have done well in his local area.
  4. Apologies all round. I appear to have inadvertently deleted the old thread, instead of a single post. (Hopefully it can be recovered by a less incompetent mod, but meanwhile, please carry on here.) Anyway, so, overpriced nuclear power stations, pig's heads, lies and incompetence... The thread on the condem gov't is here
  5. As the original thread was a poll (coming over here, fixing our plumbing...no sorry that's Poles) it expired. So here's a new topic to discuss ever closer union in which we all have to speak Lithuanian / a return to the 1950s where Britannia was best at everything.
  6. I've only just found out that, due to covid precautions, you have to take your own pen or pencil to the polling station. This may seem trivial, but it doesn't seem to have been publicised very widely, and I can see a lot of people rocking up without one. Potential for disenfranchisement and a lot of arguments.
  7. Thought it was probably time for a thread specific to the 'kippers and their quest for a new leader. Fact is, they clearly have millions of supporters and some of them must be on this board, I guess. This shouldn't just be about the smug posting of clippings proving they are all nutjobs. Though I suspect approximately 92% of the content will be precisely that...
  8. It's been mentioned a lot in many of the Politics topics but our national broadcaster is becoming a disgrace when it comes to it's political content. I've always been a supporter and realise that slight biases will always be apparent in a service that has an obligation to be fair and unbiased but I do feel it has crossed the line from the unconscious bias programmes always showed (both ways) into an area where it's overt bias is now becoming very apparent and destructive to both itself and the country. I'm still a proponent of the licence fee but something really needs to change at the BB
  9. 1) Today we are greeted with a suggestion from one the countries chief of police that neighbourhood watch members could become more active in policing 2) Last week. the discredited ronnie flanagan said that the current level of policing was neither required nor sustainable. 3) And in the background "project griffin" has been tooling up private security firms since 2004 to man the barricades when it all goes pop. So is this privatisation of the police force by stealth? Taking it point by point, 1) I find it sinister that neighbourhood grou
  10. I don't think we've got a thread for the Liberals, or the Liberals that are hoping there will be a new sort of Liberal Party with a bunch of peeps from the middle bits of the other parties. So I started one. Anyway, let's all enjoy Vince's erotic spasm.
  11. Thread started for discussion of those nice gentle Green party ones. Not like the other nasty lying Blue, yellow and red ones, or the purple nutters. They're getting more popular as well now. All will be swept before them (and then recycled).
  12. A topic about how much of a shithead Rupert Murdoch is. Todays piece of evidence from the Guardian:- Clicky I'm sure this topic will fill with plenty more examples of Rupe's minions doing his bidding in such a marvelous manner in the days, weeks and months to come. Discuss... Celebrities can sue for having their phones hacked but this one really is lower than low.

    I live in Lincoln, and the issue of cannabis farms has been on the front page recently. There's an article from the Guardian online today, too: So what's the answer? To me, it should be decriminalised and taxed. Cut out the crime, free up the police, and bring money into the coffers. Or is my view too simplistic?
  14. Biden is enjoying a 10 point lead in national polling, but there are still four more months to go. What is your prediction?
  15. I dont need a fraud Defence to help reach the billable hours target. 7.30 is the aim but with an assistant its routine to hit between 24 and 30. Costs targets are the important ones. Grafter me.
  16. Think this needs his own thread, as the bloke is getting a bigger and bigger following as time goes on. I've seen old friends radicalised by him, sharing his crap multiple times a day. He's still doorstepping his critics:
  17. You would think that the longer this crisis goes on, the more authoritarian many governments will become. They will use the pandemic as a convenient excuse to apply an iron grip on their populations. If fundamental aspects of the global economy break down or become obsolete, there will be a massive shift in how societies structure themselves and what people do with their lives.
  18. There was some discussion of this in the Labour Party thread, in the context of II's attempts to smear Corbyn, but the activities of the group are rather wider than just that, so I thought I'd start this for anyone interested. Tim Hayward has a blog here which is regularly updated, giving links to articles about this operation as well as links to all the downloads of leaked documents. It's useful, since the mainstream media are blanking the story, I don't know whether because there's a D notice out, or because so many of their own staff are listed as being involved and are using their po
  19. I know this combines Tory Labour threads but I'll be watching this like I would a world cup. Literally everything to play for, my own personal opinion is that I have no fooking clue what what will happen.
  20. I figure a catchall thread would be good for this part of the world. I'm starting one now because one time hero Daniel Ortega is now a murderous tyrant as 70% of the roads in Nicaragua are currently blocked by protesters who want him to resign. The heady days of the Sandinistas seem a long time ago. Ortega's armed forces are shooting to kill and are killing. He's got a civilian paramilitary carrying out most of it. I wouldn't be surprised if Trump sends the marines in there, it would be an easy win and he can rouse his base with it as the midterm elections near. Reagan invaded Grenada, Bush Sr

    Big things and little things to make a better World.
  22. I know there are many posts in different threads about this, and I'm not asking mods to spend time collating them all here, but it does seem best to have a thread for this. Here's something from the Greens. From an email, not a website.
  23. My mgf's son just told me about a man in Scotland being in jail for teaching his dog to heil every time he says "Sieg heil!" as a joke to annoy his gf that loves the dog. He himself calls for free speech. I call bad sense of humour. If this story is true. Anyway, GF's son is an intelligent young man but he's spending to much time on the internet listening to too much bs without really looking out for the credibility of the sources, and for a time now he's heard and been quite convinced that the laws of the free speech GB are getting ridiculously hard and that you can get sentenced
