    Where was Stephen Yaxley Lennon at the trial of Jack Renshaw? Was he protesting this right wing paedophile?

    So called 'British Values' haven't always been to the credit of the UK over the years, like its empire for instance.

    You can’t blame people like me for any of that. I wasn’t alive never mind involved.

    Forgive and forget. That’s what I say.

    Many unsavoury things have been done in the past, but it is the present and the future that we should be concerned about.

    Britain has been built on incomers, and that is a good thing, we should continue to welcome migrants, the more the merrier, imo. It is sad that racism is rearing its ugly head again, and must be cracked down upon very severely.

    This thread no longer loads properly on my tablet, he has literally killed the thread with his proselytizing videos.

    Same goes for the what's the beef with brexit thread.

    For ****'s sake, NAN. Have you ever considered putting your videos behind spoilers? You're just spamming now.

    EDIT: Holy ****, I just navigated onto this page and it took my PC a full 30 seconds of buffering to get everything loaded. Can a mod please edit post #1871 and put all those stupid videos behind spoilers? Never mind, thank you for dealing with that.

    Yes we can. You've openly claimed to defend 'British values' (despite never being able to define what they are). You're actively displaying and perpetuating the entitlement & English exceptionalism which typifies the right's attempt to define the subject.


    How convenient you've decided it's time for forgiveness the moment it's established you're the one in need of it.


    Sorry but you can't just brush off the past in the name of mindless jingoism. He who does not learn from the past is condemned to repeat it.

    Labour treated David Kelly despicably.

    That's a small part of it. There's also the aforementioned English exceptionalism and bloody history of the British Empire which the right's rose-tinted view seems eager to ignore; back when 'Britannia ruled the waves'. Nowadays she just waives the rules (or tries to).

    Phoney Blair made sure that we paid for that by his policy of mass immigration of Labour voters.

    Labour is corrupt to the core, but what about the rest of the political system.



    Political Correctness is harming the country.
