    Problem is it's not the far right you're shouting down. The tendency is to go for an easier target. I've said before that there are quite a few people on this forum quite happy to remain in their...

    I'd argue they were blamed for the shit policies of the coalition government. I would agree they didn't get much of what they wanted, but I think if you look at the coalition Tory government vs the...

    My bank is absolutely fucking awful in this regard. Only 1 actual human in branch at a counter, but you're not allowed to talk to them unless you're business/VIP, the rest of us plebs have to use...

    @Gus - I'm disappointed that you chose to go down the ad-hominem route, yes I know you're saying people who use the term are sociopaths, but that's just a fig-leaf, it's about the same level as Ron...

    In my experience, taking photos of black people is really problematic, especially in nightclubs (don't ask). It gets especially problematic taking photos of a mixed group of black and white people,...

    It's impressive tech, granted, but that's quite dangerous if treated as being of higher accuracy (as it undoubtedly will be). In general, I'm no fan of it as while one can on some level opt out of...

    I do somewhat consider it cheating when people just make up words to fit a rhyme, which it does seem to be 99% of the time. I miss NWA, that was proper rap.
