As if the German election couldn't get anymore depressing, FDP look set to get in alongside AfD, and the only party on the Left progressing is the party that least deserves to - and even then only to a point where they can't govern (unless you class propping up the Right as that).
Well it seems to me the Left has been gaining a bit also lately. Granted, it's not very much better than SPD by our standards, especially in the East, but I'll still take it.

Yeah I guess things could be worse - if you ignore that 2009 was Left's high point as I am liable to do it still appears to be going backwards (but then polling could be underestimating them), and the again things were looking much more desperate for them only six months ago. I guess if Lewis is right and FDP/AfD don't get in I'd class that as a good result.

It looks it, but Labour's support has been evaporating since they started wheeling out their 'iron discipline' non-opposition. The polls leading up to it weren't significantly different.

Chukka only this Sunday claimed Labour committing to renationalise the Royal Mail would be "completely irresponsible" and this is who we're supposed to believe are our saviours from the coalition? Useless.

Because who wants to invest time reading, talking and replying to a false character dreamt up by someone because they've nothing better to do?

That's modern life - known as the internet.

Not really - perhaps on here, maybe, because of the amount of school kids and anti-social types. But elsewhere I've been there's little sign of it.

Yeah this was posted at the time with a similar reaction - everyone singling out Greece as if the rest aren't just as much self-aggrandising delusional responses.

Seems more of a social libertarian than I (probably disagree on immigration, drug laws and prostitution to name a few), and that defines his politics much more than it does mine - nonetheless, we agree much than we disagree and are clearly comrades.

Neutral, lean Freedom Music, especially the likes of The Offspring and Green Day, the latter of which I saw live back in 2009.

There's definitely some quality to be found, but the term just screams Simple Plan.

But perhaps there are still some strong points of argument out there I am not aware of yet? O.o

The distinct absence of worker's control, or any attempts at it?

To be pragmatic I do not support right to work laws as a standalone change. That is also true of my positions for abolishing the minimum wage, dismantling social security, pursuing free trade agreements, and so on. In absence of socialism there would be few circumstances under which I would actively call for such changes. My general appearance of market-friendliness is a little misleading that way; it is completely conditional on first getting what I want in the way of expanded social rights, greater actionable freedom, and more representative institutions for everyone.

That's fair enough - worker's control is a game-changer. So we're left at the only people supporting this are right-wingers to a man.
