  1. Crying "semantics" is a bit like saying I don't agree with you but I have no rational arguments of my own to use, so I'm just going to obs(fuscate)
  2. Hmm, so is there something like a CODE RED level when Invision Support picks up on it automatically? Or, do you request they investigate? No need to answer really, just being unnecessarily nosey.
  3. "It isn't hyperbole." Of course it is, it's highly exaggerated and untrue. "It's an opinion, nothing more or less than that. And I am allowed to express an opinion am I not?" Ah, now the passive/aggressive approach. Of course you're entitled to express an opinion, but you presented it as a fact <FAKE NEWS ALERT!>. As the (now) old saying goes, you're entitled to your own opinions, but you're not entitled to your own facts.
  4. Well, if you were offering the same, that's what you'd get back. But you're not. And, you didn't address the responses to this: "You never hear the media describe anybody as "Far Left" do you? Strange that." I assume you take this hyperbole back?
  5. So you can see who's been dishing out the ups and downs. That's interesting, I always wondered if you could. So there's someone out there that knows that someone else knows they've got a bit of a nasty streak. Top sleuthing there, Diz.
  6. Not at all, just because I've let it pass without comment doesn't mean I agree. Desperate hyperbole is what it is. Or, just rubbish. There.
  7. "You never hear the media describe anybody as "Far Left" do you? Strange that." https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/3917415/editor-of-far-left-website-the-canary-is-booed-by-question-time-audience-as-viewers-complain-about-bbc-inviting-her/ http://www.foxnews.com/world/2017/12/27/greek-far-left-group-claims-responsibility-for-court-bombing.html https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2017/dec/02/labour-faces-subversion-momentum-far-left-roy-hattersley-watford-byelection
  8. Yeah, it's getting a bit tedious. It's one or two snowflakes who don't have the nerve or the wherewithal to pop their heads above the parapet and challenge anything they may disagree with. Best ignored.
  9. "and the millions who emigrate to non English speaking countries,,," They could always go to one of the many countries where English is the first language: https://www.sheffield.ac.uk/international/english-speaking-countries "If there's one country in the world...that has no right to complain about immigration, it's Great Britain" https://tinyurl.com/ycb8asgz
  10. "An extra £44.5m is to be spent beefing up Channel border security..." It says here: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-42723401 I would have thought you'd consider that to be a good thing.
  11. Did you, by any chance, happen to read this just before you started this thread? http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-5215575/Plummeting-temperatures-cause-mini-ice-age-2030.html
  12. Merry Christmas and happy New Year to one and all.
  13. Yeah, can't wait for that one. In other (non) news, some (fill in religious fundamentalist name here) are a bit mad and killy.
  14. Parliament "taking control" I'm trying to figure out if that's a *good thing* or not; is it? And, if they're not already in control, who are they taking it from?
  15. Ah, nobody on here then, righto. <Waves to stalker>
  16. Crikey, someone's given me the thumbs down for asking a simple question. Not had the courtesy to discuss the merits or otherwise of my post. Nor have they identified themselves. Isn't that a bit snowflakey?
  17. "Well, if we accept the Snowflake's argument..." Who is this snowflake of which you speak?
  18. I get that Vote Leave aren't and never have been in power, what I can't be doing with is people claiming that this particular piece of campaigning wasn't misleading because it clearly was. "Vote Leave director Dominic Cummings admission: The Brexit referendum was won by lying to the public." https://www.thelondoneconomic.com/news/vote-leave-director-admits-won-lied-public/08/02/ At least one MP swapped her allegiance precisely because of this and other false claims: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-eu-referendum-36485464 And, no, I don't have a Twitter account either, but I know I'm not the only one on here who has a telly: https://jonworth.eu/the-two-versions-of-the-350-million-for-the-nhs-slogan/
  19. Here's the Vote Leave Twitter account on 26/4/2016: Now, if that doesn't mean that this money would be given to the NHS, could somebody please tell me what it does mean?
  20. "...the Ref campaign was mainly lies on both sides..." That's a false equivalence, you're suggesting that the campaign to remain was as misleading as the leavers; it wasn't.
  21. ...they only have themselves to blame... I agree, something like this might be a step towards introducing some proper legislation: https://you.38degrees.org.uk/petitions/promoted/clamp-down-on-tax-avoidance-in-the-uk?utm_source=email&utm_medium=blast&utm_campaign=6_11_2017_fls&bucket=email-blast-6_11_2017_fls&utm_source=&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=blast2017-11-06
  22. Just about sums it all up for me: https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/picture/2017/nov/05/westminster-scandals-a-glimpse-inside-the-sty-cartoon#img-1
  23. <Tries..to...resist...tap-in...fails> Brexit severance cheques". I was curious as to what these are , and it appears to be a scam of some sort.
  24. So it must have been the single and only trigger for the Cuban missile crisis. Righto.
