    If you read through the UKIP manifesto, it's basically exactly what Conservative policy should be. They've got a sound basis for election, but don't have experienced enough people to lead and are still seen as a 'one-issue' party.
    Yupp
    That or the Libertarian Party...

    Can you ever trust a guy that uses the word 'Rule Brittania'? Hell no.
    You just used it, so we cannot trust you then?

    I'm thinking of entering this next year if I have the time, and definitely entering it after I get back from the uk with whatever I buy. After Touring class you need a cage and I just don't wanna cage the hawk, I'll cage a gtr faster than you can say roll over though.

    Co-driver spot is open right now
    Did I tell you that I am absolutely ******* immense on GT5 Prologue? And I have done various track day experiences, and you know, I am God's gift to Driving?

    I am better than Schumacher.

    Now that Co-Driver spot...

    Whoops, typo. I meant phrase. Subconscious took over for a second there.

    I think that's worse than being rather of the patriotic conservative types but I can sense you're one of them too.
    Me? Patriotic conservative? :rofl:

    Sorry, I'm nothing of the sort. I've lived in three countries in my lifetime and I've never felt particularly in love with any of them. Sure, you can be "proud" of achievements of great people that represent your countries, however I've always laughed at the idea of people weeping over a flag, or indeed the whole concept of the "nation state".

    I'm a libertarian - not a conservative. In fact, I hate conservatives.

    Global warming threads on here are always so full of fail. This one isn't any different.

    That's what I'm guessing it had to be.... The car had a slight rumble and then BOOM squeal stop. I was about to switch then out anyways they were wearing down, the angle just makes it look new

    Well, it looks they had plenty of tread on them, above 1.6mm anyway! Not dangerous.

    Did the car try and spin then?

    Yes very much so, had to counter steer to full lock right up until it stopped to keep it from spinning. Was one of those maneuvers that makes your but clench :eek3:

    The tires, other than the blowout obviously, had about 1-1.5k miles left on them...

    Well done! Definitely one of those adrenaline pumping moments...then you calm down, take in what happened and think S***!

    That is really weird with the tyres, did the recovery man say anything to the cause? Would be interesting to see if it was a manufacture fault?

    Tow guy didn't say anything or the tire guy either, but going from the suddenness of it all it had to be a puncture

    Ahh I see. Nice.

    It's true that the Lib Dems are the only party in the big three that care about civil liberties - very important to us libertarians. :yes:

    I would instantly leave the party if they started encroaching on civil liberties. Luckily, civil liberties is pretty much imbedded into the party constitution

    Funnily in the Liberal Youth society at my uni, we were discussing our stances, and everyone else said they were against faith schools. I was the only one saying that they're fine. I don't see what's wrong with them. I felt like walking away and not looking back. I would like to think I took the true libertarian approach here. (The party line is that we're fine with faith schools btw).

    Nothing wrong with faith schools. As long as they are not funded by the government, the state has no right to regulate what private schools can teach.
