  1. Mozza Interview

    Not heard of "For Britain". It seems to be the new project of Anne Marie Waters, who despite being a commie leaning hardline feminist seems to have laid out a very decent policy platform: https://www.forbritain.uk/policy
  2. Where in England can you buy a house for £100,000?

    Never seen it. Looks like it's on youtube, so will give it a try.
  3. Where in England can you buy a house for £100,000?

    I actually really liked Swansea when I lived there. It was a good while ago now though. You can get a large 4 bed detached for £310,000 close to the park and the beach http://www.rightmove.co.uk/property-for-sale/property-52564005.html
  4. Bad start to the day

    I had a nice moment this morning. I was walking into the office along the Thames in the beautiful sunshine, listening to the best happy hardcore that 1994 had to offer, feeling extremely cheerful. I got to Ludgate circus I must have been unconsciously dancing a little bit while waiting at the lights, because a pretty girl with a beaming smile stepped in front of me, really close, eye to eye and danced with me for about 15 seconds. The light turned green and the crowd moved on and we went our separate ways without a word, just a laugh and a wave. A moment of shared joy with a random stranger gave me a real lift. Probably be on the next season of some candid camera show, edited so I look like a twat.
  5. Why are the So-Called BBC such arseholes?

    I can't remember where but JP was accused of peddling cheap "populism". His reply was something along the lines of "No one would have guessed, least of all me, that a message of: 'stop whining, take responsibility for yourself and grow the hell up' would resonate at all with the youth of today, let alone be wildly popular."
  6. It's been so long since I caught a cold that i don't really give it much thought anymore. Although, sniffing is annoying and there are some situations where you can't put your headphones on to block it out.
  7. Learning guitar

    Make sure you make it to 500 posts before then so you can post a picture on the guitar porn thread.
  8. Something happening at Salisbury hospital

    The atmosphere around the discussion of migration has been deliberately made deeply toxic for a long time. To suggest that it was an open conversation where people could make honest appraisals without consequence is untrue. If they had said 100,000+ they would no doubt have been castigated as a fear mongering "hate group", even more so than with the lowball figures which earned them this in the national press (The Indy was still a moderately respectable paper back then): https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MigrationWatch_UK
  9. SpaceX Falcon 9 TESS Mission Live

    If DOSBODS island has proved impractical, then I don't think DOSBODS planet is going to happen.
  10. Everyday Feminism - lunatic SJWness

    It is widely theorised that they, and the Romans after them were more concerned with dom-sub dynamics within a relationship/sexual interaction than with gender itself: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sexuality_in_ancient_Rome
  11. Everyday Feminism - lunatic SJWness

    It seem to me that by "identifying" as any specific "gender role" you are actively reinforcing toxic gender stereotypes.

  13. Everyday Feminism - lunatic SJWness

    Probably more useful for husbands to keep track of the wife's menstrual cycle, but this is the more "progressive" way of advertising that feature.

    Okay, I'm assuming you're talking about statements prior to the A8 accession on 01/01/2004, lets see if we can put it to the test. Firstly I can't find any record of a government minister or spokesperson making that statement, David Cameron made it quite clear that it was both a central campaign promise, and a governmental target in 2011: *net migration was pretty neutral in the 80s, although it rose to circa 50,000 in 1985, there was net emigration most years. The 2015 Conservative party manifesto (subtitled: CUTTING YOUR TAXES, MAKING WELFARE FAIRER AND CONTROLLING IMMIGRATION) makes it quite clear that it is an ongoing promise:
