Excuse me?
Left and right, it's often referred to as a political spectrum. But that chart shows it as a compass.

Yeah I know what the political spectrum is... I also know what the political compass is... what's your point?

But no country ever hosts it in their capital do they? Well very rarely. Although I thought that most of the time they build a whole new arena for the contest.
To be honest, the geography of the UK and also the infrastructure means we are well suited to hosting everything from the ESC to the Olympics. We have Olympic Stadium with fantastic lighting, a fantastic sound system, and excellent transport links. Down the road we have Wembely Arena and the O2 Arena, all of these venues could every other European country to shame.

It's kinda depends on what the event is, so couldn't guarantee it for the eurovision if it were there, but it's purely down to who you know tbh... sounds cliche, but true! Hahahahaha, the Natalie Bennett **** would be worth it
If I ever have a daughter I am buying her this to wear out in public.



She can use this bib when she eats.



I can put this in her cot and hopefully his political opinions will go in via osmosis as she sleeps.
This can be her first cuddly toy. I have parenting all planned out, I just need to find a woman who would not mind me politicising our daughter. If I do not end up as Prime Minister one day I am determined that one of my children will.



I shall have this on my desk at work.

With this in the corner.


Come Christmas I shall invite all of my family and friends around and we can do the Farage puzzle.


I shall buy you the Natalie Bennett cutout.

That's beyond arbitrary. And you still don't get a definition of "social left" and "social right" from it. And it falls prey to my initial argument.

First please don't ever politicise a child like that, they should grow up to question everything and form their own ideas. Just accepting the beliefs of those around us makes us mentally weak and doesn't help people to learn and grow. We have enough sheep in society who just go along with everything already we don't need anymore.

second I'm sure that Germany has just as good facilities.

You laugh but imagine if you had a daughter whose first boyfriend walked her home under a Labour Party umbrella with a Labour t-shirt on, I would be distraught. Or even worse, if he was wearing one of these.



She can have opinions and date boys who respect her but she must have the right opinions. If she brought home a tweed jacket-wearing, Tory-voting, Thatcher-loving boy who likes to fly to tropical destinations for a Winter holiday I would not mind. He would not be a Kipper but at least he would be in the same ballpark and we could have discussions over things we agree one.

I wouldn't mind actually, unless he was a kipper or was really authoritarian I'd be happy for her.

you don't get to decide what the right opinions are though. She should be allowed to make up her own mind otherwise we never develop. People shouldn't have political views thrust upon them but instead should be allowed to question everything and make up their own minds.

Aph has the right place, they are all on Amazon. I am sorry I got sidetracked with a nightmare but I highly recommend this book.

Lol -that bib is going to give any child nightmares. At least the mug is a mug, baby's clothes shouldn't be politicised by anyone, I take it UKIP don't support Dora the Explorer, a foreigner who has never contributed a penny to the treasury, being sold as children's clothes either?

I can say every vodka I've ever drank tasted the same. It's like 10% vodka, 90% marketing. :dontknow: I don't like any vodka, in fact.
I've never had any more expensive brands such as Belvedere so I wouldn't really know if there's a stark difference between that and Smirnoff (for ex.). But I've always found Absolut is easier to...swallow...I can't...describe what I mean.

Oh that post was aimed at tehFrance too but I've forgotten to quote him oops.

I was doing a good job of indoctrinating my brother right up until the bedroom tax and disability review, unfortunately that affecting the parents has curtailed any progress towards him being a good capitalist.

I went to Bath again today, such a lovely town. :daydreaming:

I live next to Swindon which is only about 25 minutes from Bath, and it's amazing how they're just world's apart architectural wise.
