    She's British, uses the British accent exclusively, went to Brit School, won Brit Awards, broke Brit(ney Spears)'s record in the US tho. Are they not putting Britain first any more?

    Deport Kylie Minogue I say.
    And how many British patriot pieces does she have? She has nothing on Elgar, we need more Elgar.

    *puts Elgar on ready to sleep*

    Or Holst

    Even bits of Holst, good ol' Zadok the Priest.

    Well there's adele, and then there's pubs. Pubs are undeniably more british than Adele, yet a certain UKIP member put forward some legislation that would effectively put a foundation of british culture out of business entirely. So on that basis, I wouldn't put banning Adele beyond the Kippers.
    They will need to fight with Her Majesty The Queen to ban the Member of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire!

    Not opposition the the leader, but instead to the members.

    That being said, right now, we shouldn't be deporting anyone.
    No, that bill would not have put pubs out of business.

    It would have. And clubs would have gone as well.

    I'd love to see the explanation as to how a bill forbidding public drunkenness is going to have absolutely no effect whatsoever on pubs.

    People are still going to drink and socialise in pubs, but they need to be checked before they leave the pub to ensure that they are under the limit which determines whether one is intoxicated or not.

    And you seriously think being told 'sorry sir, you're too drunk; you're going to have to sleep here tonight' isn't going to put people off going to pubs?

    People do not necessarily have to sleep there - they just need to wait until they are below the limit. When people are still waiting, pubs can sell its patrons more products and services, which can benefit the pubs.

    So most people would have to wait at least an hour, probably more, before they could leave the pub. Sorry but if I'm going to end up being detained somewhere for a significant amount of time, I am not going to voluntarily go there.

    If I'm unsociably drunk it's going to be several hours before I'm sober again, and if I've decided not to buy more beer I'm certainly not going to be spending as much in a pub as other patrons would.

    Your Highness, will you congratulate Academy Awards winner, global superstar Ms Adele Adkins MBE for breaking the British, American, Australian, Canadian, French, Austrian, Swiss, German, New Zealand (and counting), and the global first-week records with the best-selling album of the year, 25?

    In the album, she promoted the English scenic beauty, River Lea. Previously, she promoted the British slang 'roll deep', the British film franchise James Bond, and the British cockney accent.
    I'm no massive Adele fan (can't you go back to venerating Taylor Swift who is at least decent?) but if she's done that then I suppose I can give a semi-official congratulations.

    Would the Government be happy to ask the UKIP members of the House (and indeed all other members) to declare if any of their family were born abroad?

    He left because of the backlash from the membership he received for criticising Corbyn.
