    I'm going UKIP for this one, the only realistic party IRL that doesn't bum the European Union.
    Voted UKIP too on the basis that every single young Conservative, Labour or Lib Dem member I've ever met is a total ********. At least UKIP people come across as more human even on tsr...

    Did you start paying tax, it's always interesting to see socialists suddenly jump.

    I wonder how prevalent it is? I really can't imagine my views suddenly lurching to the right the moment I pay tax, but it is true I have no direct experience of full time work.

    Nope, I think over the summer I just kept on reading and keeping up with the goings on of UK politics and eventually settled that ultimately I couldn't consider myself anything like a socialist.

    This is the issue, most Socialists haven't worked properly in their life and therefore jump ship the second they see how much of their income actually goes to the state.

    Surely any socialist worth their salt would have an awareness of current income tax levels? Or would appreciate that the state doesn't simply suck up the income into a black hole but instead returns it to society through public services, etc? Is the greed for money really so addictive to make many people abandon their values? Genuine questions...

    Not sure I agree with this, on the one hand it's a good idea but on the other it's a bad idea as we have a schedule. Perhaps if the admin/mods were on our side the PM would have gone out but it's clear we're in a huge decline with this forum and it's only a matter of time before it's closed hence why the PM not being sent perhaps?
