    I remember once a friend of mine told me to "jam my tits" which, much like various other expressions, didn't make much sense. Quite like the old insult "suck a **** and die", which frustrated me so much like what do I die from? sucking the ****? another random event? Please, I need more context.

    Wow, not heard that one

    Suck too hard and choke may be the concept?

    You can't choke from actually sucking a **** though, the only you'd choke is if you or the **** owner got cocky (pardon the pun) and started going all throat.

    There are a few Liberals near you. I think we'll see when it's all published. Aph's not wrong either though

    What is more important to you, social liberalism (I.e. Gay marriage) or social democracy (I.e. Redistributing wealth from the rich).

    I've rounded up and tried to collate some of the numbers to see what the parties look like.. (compass)

    MacDaddi: +1, -8
    Mazzini: -5, -5
    Airmed: -3, -3
    Emiloujess: -4, -5
    Petros: +2, -7

    Republic1: -8, -7
    Still Little Fingers: -7, -9
    Maddo: -8, 0
    Nixonsjellybeans: -9, -5
    The Definite Article: -9, -5

    Jean-Luc Picard: -8, -8
    Cheese_Monster: -4, -3
    Chlorophile: -8, -8
    Aph: -10, -8
    Miser: -5, -6
    Little Toy Gun: +1, -6
    Andy98: -5, -3
    Cbay: -8, -7

    Ray Apparently: -7, -2
    James Milibanter: -5, -5
    McRite: -3, -3
    Cranbrook Aspie: -10, -6
    Sarasens Fez: -3, -3
    United 1892: -10, -7
    St Brynjar: -3, -4

    Wellzi: -2, +4
    Balanced: +4, -2
    Nebelbon: -5, +1

    Socialists look as if they are the purest party in a narrow box and could easily take members from the Greens and Labour. Liberals are what they say on the tin socially. Greens and Labour also pretty liberal.
    Just fixed my image but if you want to add me to Labour I'm -8. -9. So on Labour's left, not the most extreme in that regard but one of the most strongly socially libertarian member of the House (which I guess is to be expected!)

    I can't answer that. How can you compare these two issues? Neither is more important than the other.

    You can, its the difference between being a social liberal (somebody who values rights above all else) and a social democrat/classical liberal.

    Theoretically you should find that the Tories and Labour likely value economic progression (whatever measures that may be) above social policy.

    Another event. But before you die, they'd like to receive your services as your final contribution on Earth.
