Outofbox6 is not a member of the Legislative Council.

Thank the Lord.

To quote a classic description of Kevin, KCDem is a "retarded douche". Awful trash who must be banned.

On which note, Windjammer, why is your name Sir Douchebag

This is the first election in which, given how the Presidency of the actual victor turned out, I regret my vote and would have changed it. If I could do it again, I would vote for Cathcon.

I mostly agree with Foucaulf; though I'd replace his worry about right-wing populism (not really much of an issue there I'd think) with a worry about how Scottish independence would be a pro-Tory gerrymander in the rest of the UK.  And, yes, that is a legitimate thing to care about.

No it's not. The Scottish don't owe the rest of Britain a Labour government.

Not to mention that the importance of Labour's Scottish seats are overrated but that's not particularly relevant in this context.

So...the assumption is that, due to Atlasian government policy, there are actually more billionaires in Atlasia than IRL?

I'd direct you to this post:

Is there any reason to think that Atlasian policies would actually result in more taxable income by billionaires than IRL?

Yes:

Actually reading more about the potential economic consequences of this...I'm convinced this is REALLY a bad idea, and not something to just oppose on anti-nationalist principles. An independent Scotland could very well end up like Spain or Italy now (not likely to be as bad as Greece of course, but heading in that general direction.)

This is ridiculous. There'll be some teething pains if Scotland votes for independence but the idea that it'd be some kind of disastrous basket case is pure nonsensical propaganda. That's not to say it'd instantly be some kind of cartoonish liberal welfare paradise, either, but independent Scotland is not going to be a failed state.

In Jacks defense, I speculated that Ulster Unionists might have been behind the Boston bombings in the first hours after the attacks. Of course, seeing as two Chechens were the culprits, my suggestion wasn't that crazy.

Huh Elaborate?

Oakvale why are you spending your saturday night explaining why the Republic of Ireland isn't going to invade a friendly country to the north???

(well i guess it's nearly 3 there)

I have no money. This is light entertainment to me at this point in my sick life.

A British loyalist American is a distressing phenomenon.

Also, if Scots get independence, then Ireland would go to war over North Ireland.

Yes, definitely.

Dafuq, oh is this the poster who is 12?

Yes. Although given the level of discourse I wouldn't be surprised if it were otherwise.

Now I remember why I try to stay off this part of the forums, because I'm actually a waste of humanity. Yay for my seemingly never ending waste of breath that crawls around on the planet and dares to breathe your same air.

You can't see how saying "Ireland will go to war over the north if Scotland quits the UK" is silly? What's your reasoning for this?

Relax Jack.  It is just that I don't know where you would get that the Republic of Ireland would, even if it had the capability, go to war in Northern Ireland because of Scottish Independence.  There are several reasons that this is just an odd and out of left field statement.

I was meaning going to war with England over the issue of Northern Ireland and all that IRA crup that happened...

Okay, I'll clear it up - Ireland has never gone to war over Northern Ireland. The IRA had no connection to the Republic of Ireland but was an illegal terrorist group. Ireland did have a civil war between pro-Treaty and anti-Treaty sides over the North (the Treaty in question allowed the partition of the island), but that's it. We're not going to go to war. Huh

I continue to think the merger of the IB with the Whigs was a shame. It was interesting to have a regional party in the game.

All together, I wonder how many posts were deleted along with the old thread. I'm pretty sure that oakvale alone just lost like 600 posts off his post count.

Glorious news! I'd gotten into the habit of deleting my most recent post in the thread when posting a new "please enter if you're not terrible" message as it was.

There's selection bias and then there's a near 50-50 ratio. Yikes.

Atlas Forum IRC Channel can be deleted and replaced by a new thread, really. There's nothing in there that's of more than immediate value.

Yes it's not exactly like we'd be missing out on any important content.
