You should vote for ukip then. Deport all immigrants back from where they came. And I was actually born in the UK so wouldn't this be home?
I am.

Last time I asked that you said NO you are not (wasn't I the one saying you were:rolleyes:)

So why don't you make your mind up

It seems your country of choice is like you picking a coat to wear 'it depends on the weather'

There's nothing to suggest he was. Have you read any of the responses on here?

The definition is certainly at odds with what the term has come to mean in today's Western society. And at any rate since when has the media been concerned with definitions? The Western Media propaganda machine only cares about one thing and it's not facts it's the government's agenda.

"violence and intimidation in the pursuit of political aims"

Considering they are the most powerful Governments in the world, I don't see who authorises what they do apart from each other..

I'm surprised it took you 5 pages to reach whatever epiphany that you think you've finally arrived at but I've been maintaining the same point through-out this thread, that is, there is a double standard in the media between white plane hijacking mass-murders and brown ones.

Yes, terrorism requires a political motive. But let's not pretend that if he was muslim, and there was no proof of any political motive or connection he would hands-down be labelled a terrorist. Sydney siege, case in point.

That's irrelevant. I'm solely talking about the Western media's interpretation and who they choose to label as terrorists and people are lapping it up.

Do you really think if the pilot was brown and perhaps even muslim people would make excuses like he was mentally ill even if he truly was ill?

That's irrelevant.
So you want to describe someone as a terrorist despite the fact that refuse the define the word.... Right
