    Higgy cannot cope with politics unless it fits into his neat little schema.

    I think i got a D, in 1999.


    You want to root out the evils of the left, cool.

    I just don't read much balance in here. It's virtually always a centrist dad fest.


    I'll leave you to it.

    Nothing to say.

    There is like one person in here that votes Tory. There is a massive imbalance towards the left.

    There's also a difference between talking about politics and talking politics. So in this thread, in general but not always, I'm more likely to be talking about politics than talking politics. Saying that I think promoting someone like Rory Stewart could be a good move for the Tories isn't the same as saying I love the Tory Rory Stewart.

    That's a very mature take on things. Are you that insecure that you're unable to call out an undesirable part of your own party? You do know that acknowledging unsavory elements make you stronger as opposed to ignoring it and being a weak apologist.

    Anyway when are we renaming EG to Sieg Heil Gamer? You know, because it's so right wing on here.

    Itís also a bit fucking annoying that heís decided where the left line is and that everything to the right of it is centrist and right wing.

    I don't think BJ Blazkowicz fighting an army of rational, sensible, practical, non-ideological fathers would make for the best DLC.

    It is my solemn duty to inform you that the right-wing media and the Centrist Dads have been at it again.

    I saw this the other day and thought it wasn't worth the row.

    I'm generally with Stephen Bush on it as far as things go:
    - the Tories, through Guido, are just trying to stir up trouble with the whole 'woke right' thing
    - but that doesn't excuse the stupid and bad things that Coad wrote
    - 'its ok if our side does it' is a stupid opinion held by morons
    - Skwawkbox is just wannabe Guido of the left with none of the scoops

    No one had even heard of Coad before this story was pushed out there but I imagine that like Jared O'Mara if it had been a Tory tweeting those things that the Labour outriders and fanboys would have exploded.

    'Woke right' is an excellent concept and Bush is mad for never writing up a column which defines it in print because it captures what they're doing perfectly.

    Can't say I've heard of Skwawkbox before but from a quick google and scan of their site the only thing that really comes to mind is "left-wing version of Breitbart".

    Was it the Skwawkbox guy who had his face blurred out on Newsnight like he was Andy McNab or something because he is such a danger to the establishment / was scared of losing his job if his boss saw him on tv?

    or was he the one who it turned out had shares in a company that was buying up NHS contracts?

    He's definitely the one the press complaints authority said had invented a load of lies and bullshit about Grenfell Tower

    So someone who has been shown to have outright lied is worthy of support?

    As much as I respect Hope Not Hate I think I'll go for the "hate" option when it comes to Farage. When the cunt kicks the bucket down the line, I'll drink a toast to what will hopefully have been a very painful and slow death and pray for him toasting quite nicely on a spit in hell.

    Heck, I may even pay a visit to his grave on one of my trips to the UK so that I can piss on it. That's how much I hate him for how the cunt's selfishness has ruined my family and my livelihood.

    Express showing what quality impartial journalism is all about...

    The email from the reporter to the press office, passed to BuzzFeed News, reads: "Needs reaction from the Taxpayers Alliance, but let's def also put the boot into Corbyn (who wants to plunge us into even DEEPER debt) so as the readers are very clear that Labour is NOT the solution!"
