DOSBODS Political Party

Recommended Posts

Just a bit drunk at the moment, but thinking about the general perceived intelligence levels on here, and as everyone seems to be quite unimpressed with the political parties in this country. Would it be unrealistic to see this community as the start of a political movement/party?

Instead of all moving off to DOBODS island, why not try to change things?

I have thought for a while that I would like to be involved in change, but none of the current parties/groups/movements really appeal to me, and I'm not much of fast thinker, so wouldn't want to get into debates etc, but I think I could help in other ways, ie common sense, and practicality.

Anyone else feel this way?

Maybe we should start a party :P

Maybe I should stop mixing gin and lager :Beer:

I'd join, if the first aim was to shut down parliament.

We have no need for 650 windbags, replace with internet petitions and online voting.

Governments should be as small as possible.

I hate the nanny state, just want them to stop trying to micro manage my life :Old:

I think the name would have to be changed. Dosbods mugh the alienate some of the voters..

Well, yeah obviously. But it would have to be something that would appeal to the majority of voters. Maybe 'Workers Party' a bit like Labour, but means what it says :P

You could put socialist at the front, you know, to make it seem more inclusive. :)

Over the last week I've had one of my mates sit and tell me that Nigel Farrage "is a Nazi" and that the "right wing BBC" give him too much airtime, and another mate casually mention that 'obviously' the only people who voted Brexit were racists (assuming that everyone in the group he was speaking to would have: a) voted stay b) had so much contempt for democracy that they'd think those who voted leave were racist idiots)...in both cases I bit my tongue and said nothing.

....so if I do join your political party I may be further ostracized socially than I already am  ... I think we'll need to buy that island first so that we have somewhere to hide ;)

Your friends sadly do not think for themselves. They listen to the outpourings of the msm and like people 20 years ago, believe what they are told. Even when contradictory evidence is staring them in the face.  

It is your duty Joe, to educate them. o.O

or perhaps we should all stick with the island idea and get the hell out before it all goes mad max.

I understand that there are a lot of people out there and people who work for the So-Called BBC really think like most of us do.  In my experience the people who have the greatest problem with Muslims are well integrated second generation blacks.  I work with a few and they are refreshingly honest about cultural incompatibility.  Many employees are PC just to remain in employment.

When our BBC addresses us as a nation for all of it's declared embrace of diversity and multi culturalism in minor programming such as BBC3 online the voice of our state broadcaster is firmly speaking from a Britain set in the 1950s.

Old, male, pale, and stale, a country that's different and lost to the past.

People that we work and live with, from all cultures, black, Sikh, Chinese, eastern European, allsorts really don't understand the political correctness and gentle acceptance, the meek tolerance of an ideology that aims to kill us. Our BBC actually don't just accept it they promote it.

What's particularly annoying with our BBC is they label those that speak out against this murderous ideology as racist, xenophobic, perhaps, white supremacist bigots. That such people are against Johnny Foreigner wherever they are from, including Britain.

No BBC, I don't have an issue with anybody so long as they don't routinely set out to kill me.

YES!

I bagsie a background role though, no stranglewank death for me!

We have a manifesto workings thread already, people interested should use it to put ideas they have out there :

It may well be us that save the world, we ought to at least try anyway.

Well said. An upvote isn't enough. 

I also have issues with people who attempt to tell me and others how to live

I like to think about new political parties from time to time, often with herbal inspiration.

I think it's possible that a new political party can do well without a campaign budget. It could be a selling point, nobody bought us so we belong to you, the voter...  Say a party website with fliers that can be printed out by supporters and distributed to neighbours etc. Quid for quid, it would be more effective than the usual campaign spending.

A party that would be fun imo is an 'Unofficial SNP' party that put up candidates in England where that constituency borders an SNP seat. Would be nice to see liblabcon MPs bricking it if there were an upset.

I think this is the best idea :)

I did consider going into politics once. A currently highly prominent MP popped round for a chat about it.

In which he basically told me not to. Because if you're capable of earning decent money outside of politics it's going to be a massive shock when the party loses power and you find yourself with nothing to do and no income.

It would be interesting to have some sort of virtual wall-chart manifesto with all the key pledges mapped out. Such a thing would be quite easy to do at a high level. The "what" if not necessarily the detailed "how".

Of course, that could be criticised for that reason. But, at least it has the "what", which is more than I see in much of politics these days. And the "how" never seems to bother Labour.

There really has to be scope for a new political party.
