    Oh ... so they're the modern-day Protestants? Scoundrels.

    Use your brain but its important to note that the Conservatives if they were in America would be considered Democrats. I doubt you would call Obama an extremist [perhaps you would?].

    The four legs good, two legs bad argument. But I guess by your term Jeremy Corbyn is a dangerous radical eh?
    No, I just don't think he has any charisma, but ultimately, he didn't want things that selfishly harmed his own people.

    Both sides doesn't work on me. I have an excellent memory and I see what they all do.
    meh

    The adversarial nature of our politics is due to the FPTP system. Saying "we should keep FPTP because of this bad side-effect of FPTP" seems a bit...odd.

    OT posts about moderation moved to the complaints about moderation thread. You can continue to bemoan the horrible nature of this forum, it's posters and moderators in there if you are so inclined.

    Mmmmmmmm isn't it more because of the adversarial nature of the common law legal system which has been in use in England and Wales for many hundreds of years that was adopted as a template for parliamentary procedure some time after the civil war?


    Poland treats me like shit and I hate them as a result of it

    That may have been the starting point for it, but I'd argue the FPTP system perpetuates it.

    It won't work here because we're special is a logical fallacy.

    idiots deserve a voice too. The existence of idiots is not an argument in favour of FPTP.

    Otherwise there'd be no working class Tory voters.

    It has nothing to do with the way people treat each other in the commons.

    I strongly disagree. Because power has been concentrated into two main parties even to this day, you basically have an "us and them" environment. Hell, the very design of parliament assumes a two party setup. Because those two parties are entrenched and it would take a massive political shock to change that, they can behave in the way that they do without facing repercussions for essentially looking like a bunch of school boys who didn't grow up.

    In other news, Scotlands CMO has resigned for being a tit of the highest order.

    She put out the standard lockdown guidelines about staying home and not going anywhere, then promptly went on a trip to her second home.

    (Wasn't sure whether it's a covid or a UK politics poast.... yes? )

    She went twice, and had the government lie that she'd only gone once. It sounded like she had offered her resignation this morning, but for some unfathomable reason it wasn't accepted. Her career is over.

    Yeh actually you’re probably right there. But then, when a party has a strong majority I sometimes struggle to see the point in the commons anyway.

    As for Boris, I bet he collapsed. No way does a guy like him voluntarily go to hospital without a strong reason.

    Death pool??!!!

    Good thing he's the head of government. It would be a shame if the queen were to die as well.

    Although then we might find out if Charles would abdicate for the much more popular William.

    I am curious if there has ever been a head of gevernment in Western Europe that died in office to illness. Lets say, since WW2 and excluding heart attacks / brain aneurysm, just straight up wasting sickness.

    At least the cunt will need to eat some humble pie, i guess.

    Australia is unable to prove that it hasn't happened to us.
