Lovely timing:

Interesting to see the polling in the next couple of days.

Communist (anti-Nazi domination of Europe)

Erhm Molotov-Ribbentrop is in effect as of 1940.

And they'd evidently stick with that if a communist USA was on board?

The media love covering (and thus promoting) fascists - guided by their desire for sensationalism above all.

Very useful posts. Shame to hear about BE's recent (relative) decline.

What kind of jerk would oppose a Rosa Parks stamp, anyway?

Ok so let's stay on topic. Would you agree to this in exchange for killing Obamacare? Yes or no? It's very simple and you guys are looking into it further than what needs to be looked into as is the case with most threads on here.

I think we'd all agree to killing Obamacare if you'd just stfu.

KSCM look set to poll into the twenties on that trend.

That ANO figure is profoundly disappointing, but if they can drag ODS out of parliament that'd make up for it. Looks like CSSD have took a significant hit, although not enough to stop the possibility of a CSSD-KSCM coalition?

Love how the only Tory argument against the energy freeze is "oh, back to the 70s then!"

Good luck arguing for the status quo and even higher bills.

Decent wages and pensions, low unemployment, strong unions, affordable utilities and housing...tell me more, Tories!
640  General Politics / International General Discussion / Re: UK General Discussion on: September 24, 2013, 05:43:42 pm
Aye, I know, but it just feels like we're wasting our time with everything else (like freezing energy prices - easily undone, and the firms will soon make-up for lost time). As long as the profit motive is in it, I don't think our utilities will ever be anything other than a racket.

Stumbled across this Youtube. Comprehensively defeated so many right-wing arguments better than I've seen any ministers do, such a waste of talent.

Are the 1 million homes council houses?

If not, I wouldn't be so confident - most measures announced carry their own disappointments (no re-nationalisations, much of government legacy set to remain intact, lots of piecemeal rather than fundamental reforms announced).

If I vote Labour it will still more or less be to save the NHS, as judging by Balls' speech, they're now committed to reversing the coalition's privatisation.

The KPÖ one seems to be for a televised game, and the Greens' one is horribly boring and seems to be made by a 19-year old art student a little depressive on weed, which it probably is. Plus it has a song in English.

Oh and I can't be bothered to look any of the other ones because of... reasons. I have to be... somewhere doing... something. I think. Or not. Well.

The KPÖ one looks like it wouldn't attract anyone but those already informed/intending to vote them, and the Greens make them look a single-issue environmentalist party. SPÖ had a lot of talking that I couldn't understand, so perhaps I got the wrong impression but seemed all about a child credit? The little drawings were appealing though.

Like you I can't be bothered to watch the rest, mainly because propaganda from parties I dislike holds little appeal.

lol at KKE above PASOK.

I wouldn't trust polls to show XA support accurately - there'll be shy voters, especially after this highly-publicised murder, and their 2.5% point fall just seems to disappear into the ether of Undecideds.

The other poll you mentioned (changes from their poll last month):

Quote
28.7 SYRIZA (-0.3)
28.3 ND (-0.8 )
11.2 XA (-0.5)
 7.0 PASOK (+0.2)
 6.7 KKE (-0.2)
 5.2 ANEL (+0.1)
 4.7 DIMAR (+1.6)
 8.2 Others (+0.1)

They seem as easy to read as UK polling(!).

He's admitted to beating up women?

I have no idea how you get racism out of that picture.

I suppose you have to know the site it's from to see where the racism is.  The man in the drawing is suppose to be a depiction of a Jew.

Might be being thick, but what does it mean?
