    British woman on sky news talking about the Nice attacks: "the sad thing about it is it spoiled our shopping trip"

    I am lost for words right now...
    I was shocked at that as well

    I feel like I would have enough to make it very difficult for you to have tried to remove me should it have come to that yes.
    Now I'm intrigued, but I think I might know what it is. Anyhow, if it is what I think it is, that wouldn't have been what stopped me if I had considered removing you (which I never actually felt the need to)

    Gwynedd (Y Felinheli) result:
    PC: 92.6%
    CON: 7.4%
    PC previously elected unopposed.
    And that, folks, is the Llŷn Peninsula. (I think that is where Y Felinheli is anyway.)

    Politics wise, it will be interesting to see how much momentum FN might gain in France after this.

    If we assume the most recent state polling correct Clinton has a 40 EV lead, 58 electors with no polling. 3 will no questions be asked Clinton electors, and a further 11 almost certainly, which would give Clinton a win of 4 electoral votes.

    Brighton & Hove Labour Party is the latest to be suspended after it elected a pro-Corbyn executive committee. Apparently it has 6,000 members, which would make it the largest branch in the country.

    It's amazing the lengths that the NEC is going to in order to censor support for Corbyn. The authoritarian streak in Labour is really showing through. "Do as we say, or else!"

    Edit: of course all branches have now been suspended from holding meetings, but the election took place on Saturday before the suspension and the NEC has since annulled the results.

    In Brighton and Hove there are many Green councillors and a Green MP. *The people of this city have a real alternative- vote Green!

    I'm sick of these bloody terrorists. Can't people learn to negotiate, instead of blowing each other up?

    ISIS and the like desire a global caliphate, they oppose our very way of life.

    What would compromise look like here, a minister for ISIS.

    They are Islamists. They don't negotiate. They want these things to happen to further their ideology.

    If the French people want these terrorist attacks to stop, they need to elect Marine Le Pen as president and elect a FN majority in the National Assembly in 2017.

    Slip slip slippery slope... I agree with you that it's an absolutely awful idea. Can't quite believe someone would actually suggest we should...

    Clearly the blowing them up approach isn't working...


    I'm just sick of this bloody useless waste of life. They're not Islamists if you ask most normal Muslims, they're just desperate madheads. They need to be stopped, but no matter how many people you kill, you can't kill an ideology in that way.

    What, and us negotiating with them is going to lead to a stable future from everyone... are you mad!? What happens when we give them something, which isn't even going to possibly be what they want... they're not going to stop, they're just going to kill more people. And then further on down the line when it's not ISIS, but some other terrorist group... they'll just do more and more thinking that we'll eventually give in... Well done, you've secured the safety of the entire world by negotiating... :rolleyes:
