    Oh, that daft bint. Yeah, I just try and ignore everything Baroness Warsi says because it's either stupid or the exact opposite of my own view.
    I didn't realise she was a regular **** stirrer. My opinion of the coalition now I know she's there has certainly gone down rather, somehow.
    First the Pope, now you. I wish people would stop implying I'm a Nazi. :p:
    Well, you know, atheism and consumerism are remarkably Nazi-ish qualities.

    I can pontificate too! Do I get a hat? :hat: Surprisingly so, I didn't expect that smiley to exist. Though it's not the hat I wanted.

    Oh ******* hell. Talking to one of my 'friends' from sixth form about the pope and he's saying he hates people protesting because they're 'so annoying'. We should just let 'ppl get on with it'. We shouldn't protest because it 'wastes police time'. ******* hell, I want to punch him in his stupid fat face.

    Ouch >< I've got a really cool flat in Kensington ^^ http://www.dalington.co.uk/property_...tyid=DAL100145

    The rent is £1450 per month, split three ways. The holding fee was £250, the deposit was £3625 :eek: Then council tax, bills, phone, broadband, insurance, etc. ><

    I'm going to be poor, but happy. I won't have a monstrous commute every day, and I'll have privacy and a double bed and a roof terrace to sit on and drink gin

    That looks so nice!

    I'm just moved into a new flat in Tower Hill. Rent is £1,700ish split 8:6:3 between my friend, me and her bf (also my friend), so I pay around £600 a month :erm:

    Expensive but it's so nice! We overlook St Katherine's Docks, and WE ARE OPPOSITE A WAITROSE :coma: Plus we live about 7 minutes walking distance from Tower Hill tube station. I love the flat so much :love:

    I want that flat :hmmm:

    TBH, if I was living in London, I'd much rather live closer to the centre than further out. Yes it's cheaper further out, but transport costs increase, and getting anywhere in London is expensive . And £500pm is very reasonable for Kensington (even if that's only a third of the rent :p:)

    I can only barely afford it hehe. I only work part time, but hopefully I'll be getting more hours and stuff soon, possibly at the brain bank :awesome:

    The two people I'm living with (my partner and a mutual friend) are both graduates and both work in London, so their wages are higher.

    I don't understand the press! "Paedophile shelterer visits UK. Kisses baby" is a perfect headline for the left-wing press. And what happened to the Daily Fail's obsession with trans-national institutions, germans, paedophiles and tax-payer's money? It's Daily Fail christmas!

    I have lost faith in both the extreme right and extreme left today.

    I'm unfortunately pretty hopeless when it comes to anything practical or money related, but I do know that drinking gin is the solution to almost all of life's problems. :yep: Congratulations.

    On an entirely separate note, I feel really uncomfortable with the terms left and right wing. I don't feel I can apply either of them to me. I'm a Libertarian, so I'm strongly in favour of civil liberties and personal freedom and all that jazz (I'm told quite a lefty thing), but economically I'm a laissez-faire free market capitalist, generally associated with being right. However if I were to tell someone I was right wing, they'd assume I was a fascist/racist/BNP supporter etc., which couldn't be further from the truth. Sigh.

    Well, yes. BNP are socialist and the Lib Dems are evidently now die-hard economic tories, so we do need at least 2 dimensions of political spectrum as in the political compass, but probably 3 would be more accurate. Communist-free market Capitalist, Christian/Family Values-Social liberalism, fascism-libertarianism. (With 'left' in all cases being the utilitarian option: communism, social liberalism, libertarianism). Ie, USA is libertarian free-market capitalist with christian family values, left right right, and we're pretty much central on all of them, possibly slightly left on social liberalism & communism and slightly right on fascism, but they atm looks tenuous.

    And that's not mentioning foreign or military policy. I suppose 'right' foreign policy would generally be apprehension/exclusion, such as UKIP or BNP, while the left would ultimately lead to loss of national identity such as United States of Europe. And it's pretty obvious what a right-wing military policy would be.

    On the whole though, when referring to the left wing press you mean the Guardian and the Mirror which are economically and socially Labour/pre-coalition lib dem, and the right wing press as the Mail* and Telegraph, which are socially and economically UKIP. So left-right labels on the press tend to be fairly unambiguous.

    *The Mail may well be socialist, but with so much vitriol aimed at benefit receivers it's very hard to tell

    I read an article in the Metro today (essentially the Daily Mail in disguise) about how the police officer that was shout by Raoul Moat is only entitled to the lower band of mobility allowance in disability benefits, and how it's disgusting that this hero who had such a tragic incident should be given more ><

    I don't like the Metro very much.
    And the flat looks good!!


    Karma hates me. Wanted to buy the iPhone with a contract today. Got my debit card yesterday.. So I went into the Vodafone shop. Everything was fine until the guy checked my details. Customer declined. Went to RBS to sort things out, got my card activated and headed back to the shop. Customer declined. There's no money on my account. And they can't find my postcode! So I headed back to my uni.. Don't have any money left apart from 5 pounds for this week and next week, so I wanted to get money with my credit card. Didn't work. FFS!!

    Although it worked at a different cash maschine and I may finally survive. :p:
    Put 5 pounds ony my account and I will try again on Saturday or Sunday...

    :rolleyes:
