    Should the UK remain a member of the EU

    For "jobs, workers' rights and the country in general" Labour Govt in EU > Labour Govt out of EU >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Tory Govt in EU>>>>>>>>>>> Tory Govt out of EU.

    Should the UK remain a member of the EU

    1. It's a stupid question. 2. Had I been a year older, I would have voted Labour. Obviously. 3. The straight choice in 2016 was between remaining in the EU or handing untrammelled power to the right wing of the Tory Party. 4. There's a long list of things I hate about Thatcher. The fact she was a woman isn't one of them. No need for the misogynistic language.

    Greatest Movie Franchise Tournament?

    He's got a load of DVDs he bought from a stall in a village in Berkshire. He just loves Horton Market.
  5. That's a good point. In the early 90s, nobody listened to Suede and thought "I could do that". Skiffle, punk and Oasis's simplistic riffs (and truly daft lyrics) gave the impression of being fun and easy: irresistible, really.

    So, you're happy to concede that, had you voted in 2016, you would have chosen the package of Brexit plus the Johnson/Gove/Rees-Mogg wing of the Tory Party?

    Should the UK remain a member of the EU

    As you know, I have never condoned any attacks on workers' rights. Please stop lying about that: it makes you look like a cunt. On the other hand, you have consistently supported removing (at least some) workers' rights since the first time you posted on this thread. I'll never condone that shit. Now... You said that UK Governments hide behind the EU when it comes to workers' rights - that they claim that they want to improve workers' rights, but the EU are stopping them. You even went as far as to claim that Margaret Thatcher said this. I'll ask again; is there any chance that you, who are so fond of posting links, could post a link to back up that nonsense?

    Britain would have been better served under a Labour Government and in the EU. Always.

    Should the UK remain a member of the EU

    What the actual fuck? Did you just claim that Thatcher gave a speech saying that she wanted to improve workers' rights but the EU were stopping her? Please. Post that link!

    We shouldn't believe those papers. But people do. Tens of millions of voters do.

    Should the UK remain a member of the EU

    No. That's why I never said they were. Modern slavery is illegal and everyone who knows anything about the subject knows that giving migrant workers rights is key to fighting modern slavery and people trafficking. Leaving the EU takes rights away from migrant workers. You have drawn your own conclusion from these facts, but it's anybody's guess how you got there.

    Things I can't do that seemingly everyone else can

    I dream of kicking a football and having it travel the approximate direction and distance I intended. That thing that the professionals do all the time, where someone pings a ball 40 yards and it lands exactly where a teammate is and he just kills it stone dead on his foot - that’s done with CGI. It has to be.

    Any computer game. I am complete dogshit at any I've ever tried, so I stopped trying over 20 years ago. I wouldn't know where to start now.

    Oh yes. I expect the S*n, Mail, Express, LBC, BBC, etc to start shining the harsh cold light of truth on the Government... ... any... ... minute... ... now!

    Should the UK remain a member of the EU

    When did any UK Government do this? EU standards have always been legal minimum standards: every Member State has the right to legislate for higher standards. UK governments have consistently chosen not to do so.

    These were illegal. The people responsible were arrested.

    Should the UK remain a member of the EU

    They never used the excuse of blaming the EU for UK workers having the worst rights in the EU. They specifically negotiated opt-outs, to ensure we had worse rights. There was never any doubt that they would have attacked our rights even more if they weren't held back by the minimum standards imposed at EU level. The bottom line is that Brexit means that UK workers have lost rights and protections and have gained fuck all in return.
  18. There are some bands (like Pink Floyd, ABBA or Radiohead, for example) that do nothing for me, but I can see the argument that they are objectively good - in terms of musicianship, songwriting, versatility, originality, ambition, influence, etc. Conversely, there are some bands that I really like, but they don't have those qualities, so I wouldn't claim that they should be considered "great"? So, what is it about AC/DC that justifies their place in the latest stages of this tournament?

    Should the UK remain a member of the EU

    This is the point where Gnash reminds us that workers' rights weren't handed to us by the EU, but were won by the working class through centuries of struggle: therefore, we shouldn't worry about losing loads of rights, because we can just start a long struggle to regain them. Or something.

    Great actor/actress pairings?

    Doesn't the word "pairing" imply two people?
  21. Oasis were massive in the sense that they shifted plenty of units. They may have inspired plenty of people to think that catchy guitar riffs were a surefire route to drugs and fanny, but they never fired anyone's creative impulses. Someone like the Velvet Underground sold comparatively nowt, but they were genuinely inspirational in a way that Oasis just weren't. Even in terms of the ripple effect of inspiring people to form bands, Oasis are lots of storeys below Lonnie Donegan or a single Sex Pistols gig in Manchester.

    Tory Cabinet Thread

    I'm going to go out on a limb here and predict that that figure of "3,000,000" won't stand up to scrutiny.
