Will not be allowed to leave Russia's sphere of influence via the ballot box it would seem.
It is obvious that they have assisted Lukashenko and his regime to rig the country's recent election.

My question...what is the EU's position on this?
...and do our 'Remainer' posters agree or disagree with the policy?
Kamala Harris Vs Donald Trump
at 23:32 11 Aug 2020

How do you think she will play it?

How will Trump play it? I'm sure he will attack Biden personally but does his campaign focus on discrediting Harris?
Room 101 - Desert Island Vids mash up.
at 15:47 6 Aug 2020

The Rules

- Choose 8 music videos which make your ears bleed, the soundtrack to your Room 101

- Please accompany each video with your reasons for hating it, it can be a sentence, it can be a paragraph

- You will also be taking the Bible (or alternative religious book), the complete works of Shakespeare, plus the worst book you've ever read in your life.

- and one pointless item. The thing you wish you'd never bought/been given.

- and choose one person to take along, the worst company imaginable (maybe provide a photo)

Desert Island Vids
at 23:41 5 Aug 2020

You've heard it a million times, you know the rules, but here they are anyway...

The Rules

- You each get to choose 8 music videos to take with you to the 'Desert Island' up the videos so we can have a listen.

- Please accompany each video with your reasons for picking it, it can be a sentence, it can be a paragraph

- You will also be taking the Bible (or alternative religious book), the complete works of Shakespeare, plus one book of your choice.

- and one luxury item.
(the chosen luxury item must not be anything animate or indeed anything that enables the castaway to escape from the island, for instance a radio set, sailing yacht or aeroplane)

Good people

If you could single out one person who had the most positive effect on your life (other than your parents)...

- who would that person be?
- and why?

Have you been known to get up and blast one out when the mood takes you?

What do you sing? (Stick a video of the song up to help us picture you in full flow)

F1 drivers v Footballers
at 00:11 4 Aug 2020

Why is it that F1 drivers have enough about them to refuse to take a knee whereas Footballers just do as they're told like lambs?
James Garner
at 00:04 4 Aug 2020

We are being linked to this young centre-midfielder in the press;

Anyone seen him play?
Is he what we need in there?
Anyone else amused?
at 23:01 3 Aug 2020

The self-appointed intelligentsia all flounced off to the new board;

"Hope (Insert poster with common sense's name in here) don't come across", many of them declared.

On the new site there were threads devoted to how shite this board now was, one stock line was that the posters that remained here were just a bunch of oddballs and racists...

Frankly, this attitude drove me back on here.

....and now, one by one, they all come back!

US Election 2020 - Delayed?
at 00:25 31 Jul 2020

Donald Trump doesn't like postal voting as he says it is susceptible to fraud (it really is actually) and has floated the idea of delaying the election.

Postal voting will be increased due to Covid-19.
The USA have never delayed an election in all it's history.

If Trump gets his way on this should we be worried about what that means?
Or do you have some sympathy for his position?
EU Corona Virus Bail Out Fund
at 14:22 27 Jul 2020

Bundesbank president Jens Weidmann has this to say;

"I generally consider collective debt for extensive transfers to be alarming,"
“At the very least, the package shouldn't serve as a stepping stone for large-scale EU debt for regular household financing."
“It is important that relief measures are limited."
“Then they automatically expire in the further course and the public finances stabilise again."
“They may be necessary now, but the state should withdraw quickly after the crisis."
“The state is not a better entrepreneur.”

Yannis Varoufakis says that the bail out fund is too tiny (once split up between 27 nations) to actually fix the problem.

It is estimated that the UK is £55bn better off as a result of not being one of the contributors to this fund.
Do any posters wish that we could have taken part?
Why would it have been advantageous to the UK to have been a part of this deal?

at 17:15 10 Jul 2020

Where do you stand on the subject?

Here is a video where the subject is discussed (I think the bloke makes some interesting points);

I welcome alternative points of view.

How many of our own Planet Swans woke Lefty thought police have their own skeletons I wonder?

This is of course the French revolution replayed and is a pattern of behaviour on the Left.
Munira Mirza
at 10:50 21 Jun 2020

BLM and their Lefty chums are now demanding this young lady's head...

...her crime? Demanding that we discuss race in this country based on facts, stats and what the law says.
She believes, as I do, that this country is not a racist country and fares very well when measured against other countries on any analysis of the facts.
Mirza has stated that the claims of some that this country has institutional racism can be attributed to their 'perception'.

This rational analysis of course now makes her one of those 'brown racists' or something. We, who remain rational, must stand firm and not allow this person to be bullied from her job.
It only takes the silence of good men to allow all sorts of evil to be unleashed.
