Didge is right wolfie. The ancestors of today's Northern Irish may have been foreign invaders and settlers, but so were yours. Maybe Ireland will reunited one day, but that is for the Northern Irish to decide.

Well, I've just checked the stats for 2015.

45% of 60+ age group voted Tory in 2015.

Perhaps you didn't think I would check facts and bust you for your bull shit. But I did. bounce

You should wait before saying i'm wrong.

News may be saying that but the numbers don't back that up (about the old).

I never said anything about the young until you mentioned it.

Well at least that makes up for your right cock  up on the Saudis. Where you poorly tried to defend some hate speech

So you proved me wrong once here, well done, happy to admit I was in error on numbers, though the shortfall you miss, is the 17% who voted UKIP, who are also RW, that makes 62% does it not?

Again who cause the massive debt?

labour

Wrong again...

It was a combination of poor lending standards from your banks, poor financial regulations by both Tory and Labour gov'ts, and greedy corporations employing inbred idiots as directors..


How many successful socialist countries in history?

France,  Sweden, Australia, New Zealand,  Canada,  Norway, Cuba, modern-day Germany, Finland have all had successful "socialist" leaning governments..

China, still with a communist government, now has the second-largest economy in the world.


Zero

 



A combination, so why did they try to borrow their way out of debt, when it happened and sell off the gold reserves?

None of the above are in anyway socialist Governments and all embrace capitalism

Its as bad as tommys claim Nazism is Left wing

Best laugh of the day, thanks mate

So at no point in history has there ever been a successful socialist Government

Utter bollocks.   Everyone who has ever met him knows the reason he came over so well was because he was relaxed and being himself and doing what he loves to do, fighting for justice for ordinary people.   He even met his wife because he helped her get her niece back.

Don't be stupid. Don't you know that every party leader, together with CEOs and senior spokespersons in both the public services and the private sector almost automatically receive media training on appointment or promotion, particularly in handling press radio and TV interviews that might become hostile, and that they are coached either by external consultants or their own PR departments on public speaking and presentation?

And don't tell me that it doesn't happen because as well as going through the process myself in the past on joining the staff of a nation organisation that was constantly subject to public and media exposure, I did the same job as an outside consultant for several rural-based industries and organisations for four years after I retired.

I've seen a vast, indeed remarkable, improvement in his presentational skills and his public speaking style (effective use of pauses, voice pitch, looking earnestly direct to camera when making a particularly important point, etc.) and the natural skills that he already has have clearly been honed to equip him better for the role of leader.

Utter bollocks? Just what the hell is wrong with you, you supercilious moron? You can talk down to and expect grovelling sycophancy from the people on your own site if you want, but don't damn well try it with me.

My post contained no criticism of Labour whatsoever, just the opposite in fact, plus what anyone with half a brain should at least be be capable of appreciating was my opinion - and this is a bloody opinion forum and not a repository for spam - and that it was based on some knowledge and experience of the subject.

I said bollocks Fred, because it was bollocks.  You see, in your reply you showed just why the commentators and the media have been caught on the hop.   Jeremy couldn't have sustained going to the numbers of rallies he did during the election by being anything but Jeremy.   On top of that, he wouldn't have bloody allowed it.   That's why he has made the impact he has, people who meet him know he is genuine, he's not been coached and manipulated, he's learnt his skills through campaigning for 30 years.   What you see is what you get.   He didn't have to be marshalled into hangers with accolytes waving a few banners.   He went out and met everyone who wanted to meet him, exchanged jokes and hugs and tears.   That is what he has always done.   I first met him at Burston Strike School Rally in 2015, before he was leader, and we all knew this was a man who was going to change things.   He spoke exactly the same way then as he does now.   You think last night was a surprise?   You ain't seen nothing yet.

This is when I met him, he would have looked bloody stupid in a suite there:

I agree she does need to step down, but are you seriously falling for fear arguments that 10 DUP MP's will sway Tory MP's and all other opposition MP's on gay rights etc Eddie?

Seriously?

You consider that bad over that of Corbyn pulling off one of the biggest con tricks in history with PR?
That he would actually defend our nation?
The man is not to be trusted. Fair play he won over people and that is more to his PR team and not anything he did. It was more the Tories committing Hari kari with their manifesto, as they had a massive lead.

Hey ho, each to their own

Okay Andy, how will they sway a majority, with just 10 MP's with their views?

The Liberals had near 6 times more when in Coalition with the Tories.

What did the Liberals achieve in that time?

Dont think they will Thor. It all seems a bit desparate and clutching at straws.
The 1922 committee  meets tuesday. Still some twists and turns to come.
Also , if the DUP DO form a formal coalition, will they want a place or two in the cabinet?

Explain then Eddie?

You think that will be a coalition of terror?

And not a man who has been friend with countless Islamist and Islamic terrorist groups?

I am all ears on this one?

Do you honestly think that I'm going to fall for all that garbage that the rallies and banner waving crowds just happened without the best locations being carefully and professionally  selected with local radio and TV in mind, the news media alerted, banners and placards designed and  printed, agents and branch chairman briefed and asked to circulate the details with a request for maximum attendance, briefing notes issued in advance on what points to concentrate on in vox pop interviews, photo opportunities arranged with the appropriate age, gender and racial mix arranged to stand next to or behind the leader (and that's not "racist" or "ageist" before you start screeching at me)...or even when he should wear his traditional Breton cap and open-necked shirt and when to wear a collar and tie?

Frankly, Sassy, I don't give a shit whether you first met him at Burston Strike School rally in 2015 or whether you met him outside the gents' bog in Milton Keynes shopping centre in 2016; I don't care how bloody natural and easy going he is; I don't care how many jokes, hugs and tears he's exchanged...he has been coached in presentational skills and media interview techniques.


Do you think that after a lifetime in the job I can't spot the obvious signs?

In this modern day and age of the vital impotance of the media and instant news,  even God would have sent Jesus Christ on a presentational skills course before letting him preach the sermon on the mount!

I'm not criticising Corbyn; I'm saying that he's learned well and he's learned fast and he's honed the natural skills that he had.

I'm not criticising Labour, even though I'm not a member or supporter.

(In fact I'm not a member or supporter of any party, including the BNP, a falsehood that you appear anxious to promulgate at the behest of that vile, odious  liar S**t and his pathetic little lapdog Andy Pandy in your forum.)

I have simply made the point that the Conservative campaign was, in my opinion, crap and that the Labour campaign was, in my opinion,  excellently done.

And it not my fucking fault that you still lost by almost 60 seats and a million votes.

Now, for Christ's sake stop screeching at me like a novice nun who has been goosed behind the bike shed, and actually try to debate issues raised when they are honestly offered for debate instead of automatically going into defensive afterburn whenever anyone posts something which doesn't conform to your little book of Corbyn worship.

Of course you can't spot the obvious signs, because there aren't. Like so many commentators you got it wrong, well wrong, and you got it wrong because your are trying to compare apples with oranges. He doesn't fit your box, or conform to your rules and isn't measured by your standands. I don't worship him, his ideas are what we need and he isn't to be worshiped, he's one of us, and you will never get that, because you like to be ruled by people who tell you what to do and say. JC listens and learns from you, that's what makes him different.

Plus, I can assure you, nun I have never been and if I'd been goosed I'd turn round grab his balls. I am debating, you are the one getting in a state and throwing out sexist abuse.

Loyalists attack Irish Catholic school children with a pipe bomb in 2001. The DUP refused to condemn the threats against the children.

Did he?

Show me where he made any such predictions?

So tell me what did Corbyn learn from Hezbollah or Hamas or the IRA?

How to hate discriminate and be prejudice?

Is that why he only singles out Israel for Boycott?

How about Left wing countries like China or North Korea, actual human rights abusers?

Does he call to boycott them?

I would never agree with him on that either, which he never would, as no nation of people should suffer discrimination.

So why do you back a man who openly singles out one nation with discrimination?

When it should be two nations coming together for peace?

How do you reconcile that, if you stand against discrimination?

No much point in going on with this. I think university education should be free because knowledge and career opportunities should not be commodified.

You think university education is a luxury.

Agree to disagree.

It used to be a luxury which is why it was free. Now loads of people go, and it would cost too much. It also depends on what course they do. A lot of degrees aren't particularly helpful when it comes to jobs anyway. Perhaps there should be more practical subjects at A level.

Do you honestly think that I'm going to fall for all that garbage that the rallies and banner waving crowds just happened without the best locations being carefully and professionally  selected with local radio and TV in mind, the news media alerted, banners and placards designed and  printed, agents and branch chairman briefed and asked to circulate the details with a request for maximum attendance, briefing notes issued in advance on what points to concentrate on in vox pop interviews, photo opportunities arranged with the appropriate age, gender and racial mix arranged to stand next to or behind the leader (and that's not "racist" or "ageist" before you start screeching at me)...or even when he should wear his traditional Breton cap and open-necked shirt and when to wear a collar and tie?

Frankly, Sassy, I don't give a shit whether you first met him at Burston Strike School rally in 2015 or whether you met him outside the gents' bog in Milton Keynes shopping centre in 2016; I don't care how bloody natural and easy going he is; I don't care how many jokes, hugs and tears he's exchanged...he has been coached in presentational skills and media interview techniques.


Do you think that after a lifetime in the job I can't spot the obvious signs?


In this modern day and age of the vital impotance of the media and instant news,  even God would have sent Jesus Christ on a presentational skills course before letting him preach the sermon on the mount!

I'm not criticising Corbyn; I'm saying that he's learned well and he's learned fast and he's honed the natural skills that he had.

I'm not criticising Labour, even though I'm not a member or supporter.

(In fact I'm not a member or supporter of any party, including the BNP, a falsehood that you appear anxious to promulgate at the behest of that vile, odious  liar S**t and his pathetic little lapdog Andy Pandy in your forum.)

I have simply made the point that the Conservative campaign was, in my opinion, crap and that the Labour campaign was, in my opinion,  excellently done.

And it not my fucking fault that you still lost by almost 60 seats and a million votes.

Now, for Christ's sake stop screeching at me like a novice nun who has been goosed behind the bike shed, and actually try to debate issues raised when they are honestly offered for debate instead of automatically going into defensive afterburn whenever anyone posts something which doesn't conform to your little book of Corbyn worship.


Of course you can't spot the obvious signs, because there aren't.  Like so many commentators you got it wrong, well wrong, and you got it wrong because your are trying to compare apples with oranges.   He doesn't fit your box, or conform to your rules and isn't measured by your standands.   I don't worship him, his ideas are what we need and he isn't to be worshiped, he's one of us, and you will never get that, because you like to be ruled by people who tell you what to do and say.   JC listens and learns from you, that's what makes him different.  

Plus, I can assure you, nun I have never been and if I'd been goosed I'd turn round grab his balls.  I am debating, you are the one getting in a state and throwing out sexist abuse.

Since you are obviously intent on making yourself appear even more ridiculous, then so be it.

Perhaps taking the cowardly option in facilitating the spreading of what to even the most intellectually challenged are filthy and disgusting lies about a poster whose account has been conveniently removed so that he cannot respond is more your forte.

I get where you are coming from and this is the left wing media at play.

Yes the DUP is filled with politicians i would never back on a month of Sundays, but lets take a reality check.

It was the Tories who brought about Gay marriage. This will give you a clue that 10 Mp's have not a rat shits chance of swaying any views religiously in this country, as much as an Islamist. The Liberals had 56 seats and they failed to get the Tories to do many things, other than hold a referendum on how AV.

Eddie, 10 MP's are never going to sway the majority view in parliament.

I get your view and would agree to the fact to never be part of any coalition with such backward religious muppets and join you in condemning. They will have as much influence only in closely contest issues. Which will involve all parties Eddie, Hence 10 MP's will only sway a full backing Tory vote.

Sexist?

WTF

Where was he sexist?

Talk about playing the imaginary victim card.

Show me this sexism?

If not, you owe Fred an apology.

I may be at odds with Fred, but in no way is he ever prejudice

Did you know Eddie, that the DUP think women who have abortions should be prosecuted, even if the pregnancy is the result of rape or incest?

How do you like them apples.


Ruth Davidson is not happy, and without her May would not have got enough seats.

Ruth Davidson distances herself from DUP deal by tweeting a link to her gay pride lecture



Ruth Davidson signalled her opposition to Theresa May’s deal with the DUP in blunt fashion by tweeting a link to the same-sex marriage lecture she gave at Amnesty 's Pride lecture in Belfast last year.

The Scottish Tory leader is engaged to Jen Wilson, an Irish Catholic Christian who campaigned during the Republic's same-sex marriage referendum, is a practising Christian herself and has said she would like to get married in her local church
.


More at http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2017/06/09/ruth-davidson-distances-dup-deal-tweeting-link-gay-pride-lecture/    

Definitely NOT left wing press.

The DUP (minus the beheadings) have practicaly the same views a ISIS

That's a really bad reason for not voting actually. There have been safe seats that have become not so safe because people voted for other parties.

No, you definitely don't need to trust him, of course they will have the power, without their vote she will be outvoted on everything she wants to do and they can demand she does things they want in return.

If you don't like any of the parties, that's a good reason, but to not vote just because you think your vote won't count is a bad reason.

Read my post again. I said "won't count".

That safe Tory seat might not be safe one day - perhaps if all the people who thought like you actually went out and voted.

Whilst locally ineffective, all votes count towards the national averages, which politicians  DO take notice of, as they indicate popularty trends.
May looked at the figures 8 weeks ago. She was 20 points up and it persuaded her to go to the country. Had she been only 3 points up, she would never have called it.
Each and every vote matters and counts. There is no such thing as a wasted vote. Only a wasted, unused ballot paper.

I think it's very important to vote. I get annoyed when people say mine is "wasted" because I didn't vote tactically - I voted from the heart because I can't be any other way.
