    twocents got a reaction from Frank Hovis in European Election: How will you vote?   
    I might be wrong of course but UKIP doesn't seem to have done a massive amount of campaigning and in that sense they may have decided to step aside for the Brexit Party - in the national interest. 
    They still kept an electoral presence so that people couldn't say they'd completely vanished
    It sounds well dodgy.

    The Plenish thing might be a poor taste joke using milk shake contents as a throwing threat but yet again we know from Count Dankula that context doesn't matter.   Therefore how is it not even a breach of the peace except for double standards.
    It's a shame that the marketing idea was so poor because the basic idea (healthy milk shakes) seems quite a good one.  They could have quite easily used the milk shake throwing incident to their benefit by being clear to take the opposite position - just don't throw things at people - drink our milk shake instead - or something like that.

    Shooting the Messenger. And again and again to make sure.
    So, does Britain extradite, or hand him over to Sweden to do so. What of former fan of WikiLeaks, Trump?

    twocents reacted to Long time lurking in Brexit Betrayal thread - Part 3   
    It has been obvious from day one GB has been playing the same game ,i have said many times, when people have dismissed  UKIP as nothing more than a twitter account and TR that ,that sort of strategy worked in Italy 
    IMO it`s the only way to get the message across unadulterated it also fucks over the MSM at the same time Trump won using the same tactics 
    The establishments answer is censorship but that`s only ever going to be a short term fix basically the establishment have been caught with their trouser around their ankles with their knee-jerk reactions  doing nothing more than adding fuel to the fire

    Good article about the formation of the Brexit Party. 
    This has not just happened in 6 weeks. Been years in the planning. Inspired by Italy's Five Star movement. First target is Brexit, then to replace the Conservative Party.

    The funding might explain that marketing stance taken by Plenish milk shakes - if it's funded by some green organisation full of SJWs etc - maybe even linked to Soros.
    They might have been told to get down to the polling station armed with milk shakes. 
    It's all getting out of control.

    I don't blame you and yes I agree about reasonable self defence and I would always assume to be still allowed reasonable self defence - at its extreme they used to say (maybe still do but I haven't heard it recently) if you really believe you are going to be attacked then act first and ask questions later.  It is an interesting one.
    She was never going to throw a milk shake though and it seemed to be entirely a politically slanted marketing joke but the law as it stands would seem to interpret it as a real threat and insult as joking context doesn't matter.  Many would be and indeed were offended even seriously offended if twitter comments are anything to go by.
    Precedent as set by Count Dankula or are only some allowed to joke and laugh and not others.  It seems to depend on who is making the joke.  They also used to say what's good for the goose is good for the gander but UK double standards seems to ignore that one now.

    Translation.
    We've all done humanities, or victim studies at University and graduated with no practical skills of benefit to anyone but have learnt enough jargon to con stupid people into giving us taxpayers money for doing nothing of note.

    That sounds like a grand mission statement that surely no person would dare question it. A collection of big words that no person should fail to be impressed by. It would be very difficult to measure the success or merit of an organization against a statement like that.
    Well there you go.

    Aye. Who funds these charities, surely not Joe Public? Must be government slush money or Soros? I was at an industry dinner the other week and we had a presentation by a charity that, if I got the gist correctly, provided business consultancy and support to other charities...So a charity for charities, wtf is going on? I resented having to put a donation in, as is customary, all so some pompous t**t keeps himself in a cushy non-job.

    We should have left by now. What the fuck are they still doing here if they wanted to vote in the EU elections that we shouldn't be part of?

    And do fuck off Agata. If you like living in a large group of countries where you can move freely you’ll just have to suck up the reality i.e., Do not complain....you can vote in your registered sector.

    I'm sure there are many exceptions but a lot of stations even the smaller ones often have parking problems and with some of the larger stations the general public could park within the station precincts but now it's only for passenger drop off and taxis and any general public parking is significantly reduced.   Problems mainly due to the massive and rapid increase in population.
