She is and I've said this on the board! But she is awful!

Which somehow makes her hotter!

She's lovely!

I was going to post her on the 'Latest Crush' thread.

If that was a painting it'd be titled 'Longing for Coan'.

As usual, you choose to deliberately ignore the facts.

My reasons for refusing to vote for Corbyn et al isn't because they are like the Labour Party of the past as you keep desperately trying to imply.

The reason I'm not voting for them because they are nothing like the Labour Party I used to vote for.

While - unlike yourself - I do not believe in making one-size-fits-all generalisations about other voters, I would imagine rather a lot of people feel pretty much the same way.

When faced with realities you can't argue with, you resort to your default tactic of attempting to tar any poster who dares to disagree with your dangerously simplistic and solipsistic view of the world by using assertions that have zero basis in fact - as a quick run through my past posts will prove.

All a bit rich coming from someone who is quick to follow Jimbo's lead and accuse others of McCarthyism. Do you actually know anything about the man or what he did, or is his just the latest name to drop at your sham-pain socialist cocktail parties?

Your criticism of those who aren't voting labour while Corbyn is in charge is even richer. Especially as it comes from someone who is so enthused by the prospect of his leadership that you've gone on record here as saying you "can't be bothered busting a gut to get on the electoral register and try and arrange a postal proxy vote".

Nice attempt at trying to pretend you have a sense of humour, btw. It's a bit like watching a movie where a sociopath who is about to embark on a serial killing spree stares into the mirror and tries to pretend he possesses empathy and compassion.


Yep, nationalising utilities, making the rich pay more tax, building loads of council houses certainly sounds nothing like the Labour Party of yore to me either :lol:

Does any thing specific spring to mind with respect to this Labour party being so different to the one you believe you voted for in the 70s?

Are you sure you didn't used to vote Conservative and have just got a bit confused?

McCarthy? Yes I do know who he was and what he did and about the HUAC etc because I am a reasonably well read person and this period is all the rage at my 'sham-pain socialist cocktail parties'.

For some one who is so right on and lefty you do seem to spend a lot of time flinging out insults more usually associated with the alt-right.

You'll be accusing me of being a virtue signalling snowflake next. :)

Corbyn Labour up 5 points on 2015 Labour in the latest polls. As I said before what has happened is not a collapse in the Labour vote, it is strengthening, it is a massive collapse in the UKIP vote and a total refusal of the LibDem vote to recover meaning huge Tory leads, although it is unlikely to lead to a large drop in Labour seats due to the way that seats have been gerrymandered into being safe for the two main parties over the last few decades.

You will be relieved to hear that I have now registered to vote at my new address,but I won't be voting because I will be in Japan and I live in one of the top 20 safest Tory seats in the country with the fragrant Nadine Dorries as MP, lucky me.

The reason I was not busting a gut about this is because my vote is meaningless in a FPTP voting system, I would do more good helping the fairer votes campaign which is what I do. But thanks for your foam flecked concern about my engagement in the electoral process.

I am glad I didn't put you on ignore, you are priceless, I haven't had this much fun since Mike outed himself as a closet lefty and started agreeing with me :)

Wonderful news!

The Board's very own Clement Twatlee is back! Grasp on reality as tenuous as ever, grounding in the social graces totally absent and sense of humour nowhere to be found as per usual.

And there we all were worried sick that you'd gone off to see a Manics tribute band only to find yourself heavily traumatised after discovering the gig was to take place in a 200-seat theatre!
