Lawyer? I just found you are in breach of the 2010 equality act, this is a criminal case.
Under what ground is he breaking the Equality Act?

I shall take the 75% as it is better than nothing but I feel a bit put out by it. I am sorry it has come to this but the electoral watchdog must be informed of your foul play in this elections. I shall withdraw my complaint if you offer a 99% discount or trade some UKIP popcorn for alcohol.



Mr Speaker, following the real life precendent of the electoral commission finding grants-for-votes, Tower Hamlets mayor guilty of electoral offences, I request Mobbsy91 is found guilty of alcohol-for-votes electoral offences and as such must be banned from standing.
Haha xD We can trade some UKIP popcorn for alcohol!

Wow wow wow! Ok, after the massive complaints - we'll revert back to 50% off for everyone! I may buy some drinks for my friends out of my own pocket if I so choose though

Nigel - we can still trade the popcorn for booze though

Political ideology is grouped with religion and he's refusing me survice based on that.

I wasn't refusing you any service at all - in fact you were getting better service with 50% off booze...

However, I have made the decision to revert to 50% off for everyone

everything in the post you quoted is RL Green Party policy I am more than happy with our manifesto on here as well, not only the policies but it looks fab, I don't trust Labour IRL or on here enough to vote for you
I don't see why you wouldn't want to trust us here - its the Greens who are seeming more and more lacklustre with their supposedly eco-friendly ideology.

The Equality Act...it doesn't state that political ideologies are covered in Religious Beliefs at all, it only covers religious and philosophical beliefs and as politics isn't covered by any of the other protected characteristics (age, sex, gender reassignment, disability, marriage/civil partnership, race or sexual orientation) mobbsy isn't actually breaking the law through discrimination.

probably because you vote for Labour IRL and it's rather hard for me to trust people that vote for the Westminster Establishment in any colour? how are we lacklustre with it?

Surely political belief is party of philosophical belief?

You don't trust a lot of decent people then who believe that making the country a bit better is better than protest voting. In fairness I don't trust the RL Greens because I don't believe they have any intention of following up on any of their promises.

Well the first Green-led government didn't do much Green stuff... and now they're re-promising to cap carbon emissions.

Obviously Tories is the best...

I think UKIP have outdone it this time though... tehfrance's is just absolutely brilliant!

To be honest, I haven't actually had time to properly read them all as I've been caught up in other things tongiht as well, but from initial looks, I'm glad some parties are doing EU referendum, and to be fair, the Green's manifesto seems a bit wishy washy in places...
