    Went out and voted this morning, hovered over the UKIP/TR option, plumbed for TR.

    I'm beginning to see it as an epidemic of mental illness. In my more tin foil moments I start to wonder whether it's i) happened organically, ii) started with a spark of of interference and grown organically from there, or iii) been deliberately and entirely fomented.

    I think it will be a lot. BP have become the acceptable face of Brexit, so a lot of people will be using them to signal their intention to vote against LibLabCon without having to defend themselves against the accusations of racism they'd suffer if they said TR or UKIP.

    Skittles - I saw them use their cringeworthy slogan again this year, something like, "During Pride week, there's only one rainbow that matters."
    It's a fucking insult to Jeffrey, George, Zippy and Bungle.

    If he's depressed he should try being a bit less of a cunt. You get back what you put out there.

    Just voted (UKIP) . Polling station seemed markedly busier than at the same time a few weeks back for the locals (30ish % turnout).

    The problem with sites such as DOSBODS is that we are broadly in agreement politically, or at least, we share the common terms of reference that allow civilized debate. This can lead to an 'echo chamber' effect because we usually tend to agree on things. This is also the case with a lot of alternative news channels on Youtube.  I enjoy Mr Akkad's videos because he engages in open debate with people who are politically opposed to him, thus lessening the echo chamber effect.
    The trouble is, it is hard to engage in debate with people who don't share basic common ground. For example, the woman above simply cannot grasp the basic concept that freedom of speech means freedom to offend.
    She seems to equate offence with 'hate' or just being nasty, and doesn't understand that offence is subjective and thus cannot be avoided in any meaningful debate. Some people (eg, fundamentalist Muslims) would find the very existence of someone like her (a non-Muslim) 'offensive', for example. 
    If we carry on with this 'offence' nonsense we go down the road of everyone saying 'I find you offensive' and 'Well I find you offensive too!' which simply cancels out any possibility of debate.

    I voted UKIP. Mrs. Eight, who admitted herself that she didn't know what she was doing, got CUKed. Thank god it won't make a blind bit of difference.

    I voted UKIP this morning. 
    As you are in London UKIP's top candidate is Gerard Batten.

    This was prevalent in the US elections. 90% of people on polling station exit polls saying they voted Democrat yet the result went to Trump

    To be fair to her she looks to me as though she's hearing an alternative point of view on the subject for the first time in her life. Which just goes to show why it's so important to allow alternative views to be heard, and how cynical it is of those who know this yet still wish to suppress them.

    I wonder how many people are telling posters “oh, I will vote for X” who then disappear into the ballot box to vote TR. I bet a lot. People have had enough of state control. They need to be given a bloody nose

    In this day and age if we should be teaching anything at school about religion it is simply that anyone following any religion is either mentally incapacitated or a cultist.
    We are supposed to be living in the post enlightenment era ffs !

    I think it was genuine, but who knows. IMO both TR and Avi would have done better giving her a little more space and a little more time to answer before they interrupted, but I guess they've spent so long listening to the same old shit that they don't need to wait for the rest of it any more.
    You need to ask?

    We need a list of state sanctioned things we are allowed to hate (TR and anyone who expresses an opinion) and things we are not.
