    The bit about killing everybody Dunno if you've ever been to Cambodia... if not I'd wholeheartedly recommend it, wonderful country and people. The Killing Fields museum, though, made me physically sick

    I'm not a Marxist by any means but there is no denying that he is one of the giants of Western political/economic theory You can disagree with a lot of his ideas, as i do, but to label him shite is a bit... benighted

    Marx died in 1883 and Pol Pot took power in 1975 It's obviously all Marx's fault. His evil ghost hung around for 92 years before taking over lovely Pol Pot and forcing him to commit all the atrocities

    What a very odd post Marx is commonly regarded as one of our great economic and political theorists alongside Adam Smith, Hobbes, JS Mill et al Carnegie is the original and epitome of the great American Robber Barons described as: “antecedents” of the organized crime that emerged in the United States during the Prohibition era (1920–33). The robber barons transformed the wealth of the American frontierinto vast financial empires, amassing their fortunes by monopolizing essential industries. In turn, these monopolies were built upon the liberal use of tactics that are today the hallmark of organized crime: intimidation, violence, corruption, conspiracies, and fraud.

    Should the UK remain a member of the EU

    Or if he gets a GE what's in the Lab manifesto? Referendum or take May's deal?
  9. If there's another ref think Remain will win comfortably Even my dad has changed his mind and says he'll vote Remain Brexit was always a Tory project and has become even more lunatic as time progresses. With some decent leadership we can fuck Brexit off for good.

    Leaving the EU isn't much like going into a car dealership is it, really? No deal is insane and everybody knows this is the case.

    Should the UK remain a member of the EU

    So what will they do? Do you know? I certainly don't and that's one of the reasons their policy needs changing Any form of Brexit is a Tory Brexit ... it was conceived in the Conservative party and nurtured by the ERG and Bastards as John Major called them

    Should the UK remain a member of the EU

    Labour were wiped out in Scotland partly because they stood with the Tories in the Independence vote. If they stand with the Tories again in backing a Tory Brexit how do you think that will go down with the voters?

    Should the UK remain a member of the EU

    It should be the policy pushed by John McDonald and Emily Thornberry and Keir Starmer - a second ref

    Should the UK remain a member of the EU

    I'm inclined to agree The one caveat is that Brexit has completely distorted traditional voting patterns but Labour have been a shambles... the Brexit policy is a fucking disgrace
