1  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Ronald Reagan vs. Donald Trump on: June 26, 2016, 07:22:32 pm
Reagan in an attosecond
2  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Next British PM on: June 24, 2016, 07:35:53 pm
As expected, Osborne has no votes Tongue
3  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Will the EU be around by 2020? on: June 24, 2016, 07:33:45 pm
Yes, although I wouldn't be surprised if another member state votes to secede by then.
4  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Scottish independence: Support or oppose? on: June 24, 2016, 06:06:48 am
Still oppose.
5  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Have your views on Islam changed since the Orlando Terror Attack on: June 24, 2016, 04:45:14 am
Hasn't changed, having known many Muslims during my lifetime, while some Muslims are extremist nutballs, I know most of them are not lunatic terrorists.
6  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / International Elections / Re: Who are your family members voting for in next weeks EU referendum on: June 24, 2016, 03:35:59 am
My dad's originally from the UK, and most of his family still live there.

Uncle 1 (younger of Dad's two older brothers): Leave, votes Tory in general elections (don't know how he voted last year, plus, I've heard him complain plenty about the EU over the years, from over-regulation, to loss of national sovereignty (he does support the NHS, BBC and a decent sized national government though) to what he sees as a "threat" from the Poles, although he's travelled to many different nations all over the world... my uncle has a few NIMBY tendencies).
Auntie (Uncle 1's wife): Possibly Leave? Labour voter, although shares similar views with my uncle on immigration.
Cousin 1: Not registered to vote, I'm fairly certain she's never voted, doesn't really care either way.
Cousin 2: Likely Leave (from an anti-superstate, not anti-immigrant point of view)
Cousin 2's fiancee: Most likely Remain.
Cousin 2's son: Too young to vote

Uncle 2, Dad's eldest brother, has lived in Spain since the mid-1990s, and doesn't care for politics.

Dad's youngest cousin: Remain
Dad's youngest cousin's husband: Definitely remain (former Labour voter, and cynical of most MPs, although quite the fan of Dennis Skinner, but would never vote for "Farage and his clan", to quote him).
Don't know how their daughters would vote, and their grandsons are way too young to vote.

Dad's middle cousin: Remain?
Dad's middle cousin's husband: No real idea
Again, no idea how their son and daughter would vote, and their grandchildren are way too young to vote.

Dad's eldest cousin: Likely Remain
Dad's eldest cousin's son: Remain (socially progressive, bit of an alternative type, not really much of a voter though)

If my dad still lived in the UK, he'd vote Remain, while my grandad would be voting Leave (Grandad would have voted for Enoch Powell if he lived in that part of England) if he was still living there, and Grandma (R.I.P.) would also be a Leave voter.

Turns out Cousin 2 didn't vote, haven't heard anything yet from my other relatives.

Trump will apply for citizenship through his mother and run.

But what happens if he wins the Presidency? #constitutionalcrisis

I think May will be the only one who can get the PLP nomination and the memberbase. If the party is feelibg particularly nuts, maybe Fox.

Only time will tell...
8  General Politics / Individual Politics / Next British PM on: June 24, 2016, 03:04:41 am
I'd say Johnson, then May, then Gove.
9  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: Brexit Supporters What comes closer to your motivation? on: June 24, 2016, 01:57:24 am
Write-in: Regaining of national sovereignty, and law-making capabilities, in addition to more trade deal opportunities, and a stand against a European super-state.

Out of your poll options, my answer is closest to "Dang elites".

FF, even if we disagree on the EU.

I spot a troll poll...

English results:
 
OUT - 15,188,406
IN - 13,266,996
TOTAL - 28,455,402

53.3% OUT

I'm pretty shocked by the result. Wow.

I must say, while I'm pleased, I am also shocked - was expecting a narrow Remain win.

14  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / International Elections / Re: United Kingdom Referendum on European Union Membership on: June 23, 2016, 11:45:12 pm
I wonder what other countries could get referendums after this I think Holland and France are somewhat likely

Hopefully all of them.

I think the Czech Republic is another in line for wanting a referendum.

16  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / International Elections / Re: United Kingdom Referendum on European Union Membership on: June 23, 2016, 11:16:28 pm
For what it's worth, international media outlets are also calling a Brexit.

Only 37 areas in England left to declare (including Cornwall)

One of the things that concerns me most about this is that, if things don't get dramatically better, who or what becomes the Eurosceptic punching bag? Leftists? Minorities?

As a Brexiter, I sincerely hope this isn't the birth of an Enoch Powell 2.0 movement.
19  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / International Elections / Re: United Kingdom Referendum on European Union Membership on: June 23, 2016, 11:05:56 pm
The US is never going to let the UK lose their veto in the UN.  Not gonna happen!  Hate to burst all of your anti-British bubbles.

*anti-English bubbles

Britain is dead, expect a Kingdom of Scotland and a United Kingdom of England and Northern Ireland.

Shouldn't that be United Kingdom of England, Wales and Northern Ireland?

Still waiting on the result in Havering (just to see how great the Leave margin will be)
