  1. The world has been far from silent on the matter, you've clearly forgotten the almighty stink that was kicked up in 2013 and which forced them to pass a law to allow residency permits for these people. They've also confirmed that anyone who has at least started the application process will not be deported, which accounts about 50% of the demographic so far. The real argument is over the rights and privileges of a naturalised citizen, which is leading to many of these legally stateless people refusing to apply. This by definition makes them an illegal and therefore subject to deportation. It's actually largely in line with international law, albeit not a very nice way to approach the problem.

    Top of a tank has very little armour. Doesn't take much to penetrate it.
  3. The number of complaints has no bearing on how the Content chaps upstairs reach a decision. They have a clearly defined set of rules and policies. Complaints are just a measure of public opinion that the press enjoy bleating about.
  4. Ofcom receives 1000 complaints about a couple of stunt dogs and even more cos of the slightly revealing outfits of the judges. Making a joke about a slope on a bridge only received 3 complaints yet was cause for such righteous indignation you'd have thought we'd threatened to nuke the third world. Opinions in this country are dangerously lopsided.
  5. So...about not taking weapons off the enemy....
  6. Dunblane taught us the "4 R's" of education: Reading, Writing, 'rythmatic and Reaction to Effective Enemy Fire.
  7. Isn't purcell a type of washing powder?
  8. Oooh now that is a nice pic. That needs VCBising and to be a new front pager. Vince, we need to put you in the magic cam. That group on reddit who added it to a flagpole for T4's to play around with came up with some really nice pics. Great idea.
  9. I think we should have a ConLab coalition. Their policies are almost identical now anyway.

    I don't think anybody here would classify you as human, Anthony.

    Of course. You should know by now that these things take twice as long to get to where you live. It's like the post, and sliced bread which you only got 10 years ago.

    Yet you still can't use capital letters. How does this make you feel? (I'm joking btw, please don't rager me :( )

    I'm fairly certain you are not meant to feed shit to a dog.
  16. I dunno, I think it's probably legit. I mean check this bit out :
  17. HoL is broken because it's full of inbred old fruitcakes, bishops from an irrelevant religious institution and immediately packed full of party donors by whichever PM wins the election. We don't have enough of an aristocracy left to make it work the way it's supposed to, hence why it needs reform. A mere extension to HoC is of course a terribad idea, hence my rather off the wall suggestion of bringing back a real power of veto in an invested body. As an aside, the usual contra argument of "constitutional crisis" would only happen if the current monarch tried to exercise that power in the current political context. If expectations were set for HoL reform that included a clause for renewed powers in the monarchy it wouldn't be an issue. I know it'll never happen - the monarchy is to weak, pro monarchists are too risk averse and the haters are gonna hate, but I can still make wildly off the wall theories about how a return to a true constitutional monarchy would clearly make Britain awesome again.
  18. They're not that slim. We just keep voting for the wrong ones.
  19. Well then. I guess all that's left is to declare martial law.
  20. Even I don't believe an autocracy would do us any good, less so a hereditary one. But I do actually think we should reinvest power of veto back into a single body, albeit advised by a privy council, who holds an impartial position outside of the party political system, can take a long term view and who genuinely has the best interests of the country at heart rather than our typical short term populist and ideologically partisan approach to political decision making. House of Lords can no longer achieve this tempering effect and has become just as partisan as HoC. Call it a constitutional monarchy if you will, but the principle is to have someone who can overturn (or over rule) some of the more idiotic reasons that prevent good legislative bills from ever reaching the statute books.
  21. I'm amazed you'll even talk to me.
  22. I am disappointed there's no party campaigning for a rebalance of power in the constitutional monarchy.
  23. Sigh. Good jokes and bad puns are lost in the age of googlepedia :-\ Rager - You may agree with a particular party in some areas that are important to you but even if you disagree strongly with them in others, on balance you must side with that party. This is of course how our system works - we vote for a party candidate, not individual policies - so you have to take the rough with the smooth, so to speak. It's actually interesting to see how the scores reflect the fact that there are a lot of similarities in the party policies and how the margin between Lib/Lab/Con for most people is actually pretty small. This is partly why we all feel so disillusioned with them because there is no real feeling of choice. Typically people continue to vote on ideological grounds, or because that's the way they've always voted, or simply cos Toff / Jew / Schoolboy. Why? Idealogical reasons or just the sort of ennui that I described above?
  24. Work doesn't let you see women? Do you work in Pakistan?
