Nigel Farage Resigns

Post by Fuzzy Zack on Mon Jul 04, 2016 10:54 am

First topic message reminder :

resigned as the leader of Ukip just two weeks after Britons voted to leave the European Union, adding that he “couldn’t possibly achieve more”.

At a speech in London, Mr Farage, who was elected as an MEP for the party in 1999, said he had never wanted to be a career politician and was standing down. He has had two stints as leader of the Eurosceptic party since 2006.

“I now feel that I’ve done my bit, that I couldn’t possibly achieve more,” the 52-year-old added.

And Quill....you are the biggest braggart on here, so to accuse us of feeling superior is a bit much. Laughing


'the Brits' is this specific gang of xenophobes. they invaded this multicultural international forum and proceeded to spout the most ignorant insulated xenophobic propaganda I had ever seen outside of a historical context (or redneck USA)

the great Irony being their biggest complaint is Immigrants that come over and not knowing and following every little nuisance of the culture. Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes

You should be welcoming Brits as you're so keen on multiculturalism. After all, a couple of Americans, Aussies, and one Scot isn't really representative of a "multicultural international forum". Laughing

Thanks for all your help, Nigel.


You're right there!

How about I plaster photos of tortured and slashed animals all over your Happy Eid thread? You know...the poor creatures that get their throats cut in the streets for Eid feasts? I'm sick to death of being labelled by people who think those who voted Leave are racist. Why don't you give it a rest?

Do it. There's nothing to celebrate about that kind of thing.

Actually, anyone reading Newsfix might have decided to vote to leave after all the hand wringing on here from the remain side. Laughing

It is what it is.  I bring in factual support for my contentions.  I quote articles, books and learned individuals.  I even post entire articles for substantiation of points.  I use statistical argument.  I quote from history.  I also cite my own qualifications to speak.  Just one of many factual claims I use to make my point.

Just because you or someone else feels its rude...meh.  Most likely, that's just a way of dismissing my argument, because s/he can't think of anything else.

Or, it's jealousy.  Either way, I don't care.  I only care about making good, effective points.

Quill, you do make some good effective posts, and there's no doubt you are a very clever man...I enjoy reading a lot of your posts.
I just thought you were a bit hypocritical yesterday grouping all Brits together as arrogant with a superior attitude.

They're too hardcore. I mean really bad. You just have to google Eid Slaughter to see for yourself. I was in Cairo one Eid and I saw it first hand in the outskirts of the city, blood literally running in the gutters and bloody hand prints all over cars etc. It was medieval.

Why compare his name to the National Front then? That implies you think he's associated with those people and by association so is everyone else who supported his Leave campaign. That's what it looked like.

It was just a joke and that's why I said it was unfortunate?
Come on Horatio, you've read my many posts about how the word "racist" is thrown around cheaply like a street store brand. I've never said Farage was racist. I don't like him much mind.

I see that SM has compared that kind of slaughter with any slaughter of animals on the Eid thread. I don't agree. British slaughter houses stun the animals first, if they don't they get prosecuted. I'm tempted to post the photo I saw of a camel being slashed on the neck with a machete, the wound was about four feet long and the animal was screaming as it tried to escape. How one can compare that to what they do in a slaughterhouse, I have no idea. I guess it's de rigueur in Halal slaughterhouses. Vets say unstunned cattle take from 20 seconds to lose consciousness, sheep six or seven seconds and poultry seven or eight seconds, but all these times can be far longer. One can only imagine the screaming that must go on. However, I read somewhere that some halal slaughterhouses do now use stunning as part of the killing process.

No offence to Jane, but she doesn't exactly debate many issues. More Americans doesn't make it multicultural. I'm sure the Cambodian made a huge difference. Laughing
