    It's almost like women are as capable as men and will be judged on their work in these parties.
    I agree, there are a group of self-labelled progressives who like to think they are not sexist, but have the view women are weaker than men, need special treatment, need to be taught how to do things, cannot compete against men, and cannot do the same things as a man can do. In their attempt to be progressive, and push for equality, these backward, self-labelled progressives have formed a sexist, patronising view of women which has led to the infection of special treatment in society.

    Never thought I'd be saying this, but hear hear!

    Preparing to move into halls tomorrow is a hell of a lot more work than I thought it would be. Really excited to just get started now though, got freshers starting tomorrow night, and Labour Conference starting in seven days.

    Just for interest, I was looking at university checklists the other day and the amount of things it says you should bring is staggering. I hope the move goes well.

    The one on TSR isn't even complete. There is loads (I've got a total of 7 crates)

    I have something like two suitcases, a shopping trolley and two or three bags for life full of stuff to take, if I was going further I'd have to take even more stuff

    Just a quick note to people going to university: if you're staying in halls, probably don't bother bringing stuff other people will bring (and be happy for you to share). This applies to things like kettles and toasters especially.

    Also, remember you're living in a place with shops, not some bubble. You're perfectly entitled to go and buy things if you find out you need them.

    With that said, I usually ended up bringing 2 suitcases + 2 large boxes of stuff each year.

    Please return the shopping trolley once you have finished with it. Please also remember not to leave things such as phones on charge all night.

    Good luck to all who start uni this week.*

    I could cut down what I am bringing tbf, but I'd rather be the person who brings too much than end up in halls as someone who didn't bring enough and nor did anyone else

    It's not a trolley from a supermarket or anywhere to be clear, it's one of those 'Granny' things, which you take out and put your shopping in.

    Exactly what I bring too and I'd say I'm something of a minimalist.

    One day, perhaps that will be achieved. :moon:

    :rofl: I might be a centrist, but I think I am slowly leaning centre right. You will have to pass such a thing without my support. Unless there is tea involved. Or biscuits. Or Irish freedom. Take your pick of bribery.
    Noooo! Centre-left is clearly where it's at.Lefties are more likely to go in for the whole 'Irish freedom' thing. Other lefties though.

    You know sometimes I feel like I'm becoming more 'moderate' but then I read something written by the right-winger here (e.g. UU) and find myself so utterly repelled that it pushes me back on the red side.

    My Irish freedom thing will never leave me. Honestly, it's like engraved in my body. You don't need to worry there. I will never go fully right wing, mainly because of what I read here (thanks UKIP).

    PS Thanks for quoting me here. I had no clue that we had a new Bar chat. Just shows how little I have been around recently. Embarrassing. :getmecoat:

    We're 36 pages in and you didn't notice? You're not shaking off the old TSR addiction are you? That would be deeply concerning.

    Looks like I am...

    Tbf, I have been rather busy. I am back to classes. Gyming. Medicating. I open TSR, stalk some threads, post in my Gym thread, and then I'm away again.

    How I did not notice though is beyond me.

    Sounds healthier than here.

    To be fair, parliamentary drunkenness has been undergoing an assault thanks to the long overdue reforms introduced by myself and my colleagues. We'll have every MP drinking only (unspiked) coffee before you know it.
