    They didn't just do it to Boris, but to the other party leader who couldn't be bothered to show up as well.

    So not biased at all!

    Not that I am fond of this kind of an American import style of debating anyway. Still the thought of Jon Snow losing his job sounds good to me.

    I too can speak in pure hypotheticals that didn't happen and apply them to situations that did.

    Why is an ice sculpture more offensive than empty chairing them?

    The Rejection of modernism - An appeal to traditionalism, a rose tinted past which never existed. The traditional role of a swashbuckling England ruling the waves and being a powerhouse of trade.
    The Cult of Action for Action's Sake - Get brexit done, no matter what the cost. Not even the death of the union.
    Fear of Difference - I shouldn't need to explain this.
    Appeal to a Frustrated Middle Class - Inequality is sky rocketing, squeezing the middle class. r>g reigns supreme and this created the material environment for a population bearing the brunt of austerity to marginally vote for brexit in protest.
    Obsession with a Plot - Undermining brexit blah blah blah
    Fascist societies rhetorically cast their enemies as "at the same time too strong and too weak."
    "Pacifism is Trafficking with the Enemy" - Constant warfare against whoever; socialists, europeans, muslims, environmentalists, terrorists
    Contempt for the Weak - The poor will suffer what they must, see the whole universal credit debacle.
    Everybody is Educated to Become a Hero - Not seen much of this yet, but Johnson is supported by the classic tory dad columnists clamouring for dad war to toughen up the millenials
    Machismo - Nothing really macho about the pale, flabby idiots looking to destroy the country. I guess you aren't fascists after all!
    Selective Populism - Get brexit done, 53% speak for everyone, no compromise at all.
    Newspeak - Literally everything the right wing press is printing.

    Maybe one day they will tick all of these boxes easily and become proper grown up fascists. At the moment though the Johnson crowd are a weak imitation beholden to the economic interests of a parasitic capitalist class who know their useful idiots will believe anything and embrace any contradiction.
    This sounds like something a coked up KGB of Pravda would write up.

    For someone who hates fascists you certainly seem to resort to using peoples colour as a method of attack as well as attacking democracy. You have more in common with Adolf Hitler every day. It won't surprise me if you have written your own communist version of Mein Kampf.
    Not an argument. Not a fan of being thoroughly called out?

    Here's the thing: climate change isn't just important, it's the most important thing imaginable. Yes, ultimately it's more important even than Brexit. Anyone running for high office who refuses to discuss it deserves nothing but contempt.

    idk guys the Alex salmond's magic grandpa pills joke was one of my best i thought. If only Corbyn hadn't introduced Slamond himself to Solero lollys those girls would be safe today. Fucking Corbyn: Worst Scottish political leader this last decade.

    Lorry across a few lanes on the bridge and the police seem to have shot someone a couple of times.

    5 injured, one suspect shot by police. It looks like he was being restrained by members of the public before armed police arrived.

    Aye, one with a mp5 on mans right, one witha taser on his left. 3rd cop drags the restrainer clear, and without firing taser, they execute man

    The London Bridge attackers last time had fake bomb vests. No idea what the operating procedure is for suspects claiming they have explosives. He was still moving some time after being shot I think.

    It looks like members of the public tackled him, removed his knife (that video shows a well dressed chap with a big knife in his hand), then the police start pulling the members of the public off him because he's reaching for something, so they shot him, at least twice. If I had to speculate it looks like the last guy holding him down was keeping his hands out of his pocket. Looks like there were phenomenally brave people on London Bridge this afternoon.

    You shoot them, ideally until they stop moving.
