Interesting fact: Howard did worse in Tory targets with a more religious population than with more secular populations.

Interesting fact: Howard did worse in Tory targets with a more religious population than with more secular populations.

Does that mean places like Dorset South, Hove and Medway tend to be more religious than say Monmouth or Guildford (and the gains that created a blue slug crawling from central London)?

Interesting

That's because, compared to other countries the United States is right winged!

So... every other industrialised/Western country is Left-winged?

This poll's options aren't biased at all.

As someone on the left, I find these kinds of threads quite embaressing...

Bear in mind that voter turnout is generally lower in the South. Bush bearly won more than 30% of the electorate in many southern states in 2004, an improvement on 2000. (I can provide a map adjusted for turnout at some point...)

That's not to say that the Republicans would win had every eligable voter in the south voted, but it would be interesting to find out which sorts of people are less likely to vote, and how they could be won over.

It's not a joke.

It's a serious political event (In Atlasia).

Do you I-Spy, take Peter, to be your spouse for life? Do you promise to love and comfort each other, honor and keep each other in sickness and in health, for richer and for poorer, for better or for worse and be faithful to each other as long as you both shall live?


Suddenly, I-Spy runs in*door slams*

I Do.

all citizens be required to own an assault rifle to shoot burglars with and in case of a tyrannical government

That would mean that with the BNP as that government, those assault rifles wouldn't be sitting on the shelf long! lol
1088  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / International Elections / Re: If you were voting in the UK election ... on: May 05, 2005, 11:37:20 am
Tell me, what are the domestic economical policies of the BNP like?

Despite what Bierpiez said, I heard that in their manifesto launch they favoured scrapping the income tax (don't quote me on that).

I do know that they wish to re-introduce conscription, and that anyone who complete's their service will be given an assault rifle by the government.

You might like the bit about no income tax and the free gun, but I don't know how they'll pay for the weapon in question...
1089  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / International Elections / Re: I have a nagging feeling abt the UK election on: May 05, 2005, 11:20:27 am
There's an article about this on the radio now, as I type.

It's 5:17 in the afternoon now, if terrorists were planning an attack on UK soil it would've probably happened by now, the polls close in less than 5 hours.

There has been a stronger police presence in polling stations around London, not just for the King-Galloway race Wink

Note that Respect hasn't condemmned the disgusting attack on King. It hasn't even commented on it.

Have the Conservative and Lib Dem candidates? (not that they necessarily should be expected to, I'm just wondering).
1091  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / International Elections / Re: Labour's Nightmare Scenario on: March 21, 2005, 12:48:26 pm

We are living in a society where the workshy get richer and the hard working get poorer.

That's empty, baseless rhetoric...

One word: chav (or ned as it is in Scotland) A social by product of New Labours social policy, in the same way Yuppies were a by product of Thatcherism. But guess which group was more benificial to society.


There were people who could be described as "Chavs" before 1997. In fact the lifestyle and basic status of their families identify very closely with the "New working class" whose emergence had become notable with the economic changes of the 1980s. They tend to be more affluent than the traditional working class (hence the expensive clothes many chavs wear).

The under 25s are swinging rightwards.

I find that hard to believe, and not if I can help it. Wink It's more likely that their attitudes have moved towards the British economic centre.
1092  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: How racist were the following presidents? on: March 13, 2005, 12:03:34 pm
If we graphed all presidents on how rascist we are, it would be a steady but significant decline over time. Standards have gradually improved over time.

Indeed, George W. Bush is easily one of the least rascist presidents ever.
1093  General Politics / Individual Politics / Re: You wake up as Joseph Stalin- Jan 1, 1933 on: March 13, 2005, 11:58:57 am
I'd move towards a more W. European version of socialism, like social democracy, almost immediately.  We'd hold elections for municipal governments by 1935.  We'd have property rights as well.

I'd define my New Socialism as opposed to fascism, hoping to gain adherents in the West, as I pose as the great counterbalance to Hitler and Mussolini.  The feckless Chamberlain does not stop Hitler, only I the Man of Steel can.

I'd lend support to the Republicans in the Spanish Civil War, hoping to beat back the rise of fascism before Hitler could unleash his war.

Basically, slowly liberalize this downtrodden society economically and politically, while opposing Hitler's rise.  Hopefully, the nationalism from opposing Germany will keep the hard liners behind me long enough that they won't notice I'm slowly doing away with communism.

I have to say I agree with your plan, you've covered most of what I intended to! Smiley

Leaving aside arguable alternatives from the time, the use of nuclear weapons against Japan probably did do more good than harm in the long-term. Secondly, it was in the past and there is no point getting worked up about it. (I that Truman's foreign policy was otherwise rational and well thought-out.)

Nonetheless, I believe it highly distasteful for people to admire Truman's decision to drop the bomb on the grounds that it is in any way a display of virtue and conviction!

I dont care to much for gay marriage, but adoption is a different thing.  Id rather see a child in a loving home with two parents of the same sex than in a broke down orphanage or foster home.  As long as they DONT push their lifestyle on the child.

Could you tell me exactly in which way you imagine homosexual couples would "push" their lifestyle on the child??
1097  Election Archive / 2008 Elections / Re: DLC Losing Influence Within the Democratic Party on: March 13, 2005, 09:40:23 am
oh jeez.  the democrats really have you whipped dont they opebo?

since you care soooo much for the working class, please donate your trust fund to help all of those poor souls oppressed by the 'owners'.  maybe ted kennedy would do the same?

Surely you can work out that that's such a stupid thing to say? Even as patronising rhetoric...
