But again most of this talk of the political leanings of individual Mods is largely irrelevant anyway, as I have yet to see a single instance of that interfering with their duty to make fair rulings on the basis of a sound interpretation of the rules. Unless the primary reason for bringing it up is...

And this, ladies, gentlemen, and non-binary posters, is what this thread is going to look like for the next few years if Moran wins the leadership contest. Not that the real world bases its political dynamics on NSG threads - thank God - but you might as well brace yourselves; depending on how much ...

But it's a matter of emphasis rather than serious disagreement, and realistically my focusing on superficials merely predicts what both NSG and much of the British media will spend most of the next few years wringing their hands over. Well, it's not as if they can expect much better. Its either tha...

hot take: tim farron's position was reasonable and moral given his circumstances and it's only due to the UK's insistence on ideological and cultural purity he got booted. essentially, he was punished for being a wrongthinker. Well, Tim Farron is still an MP, so it didn't end his political career, ...

MRAs didn't care much about the assault. They took the "One-off incident" approach, right up until she tried to justify it. Does her former partner feel any continued abuse from the indecent, or is suffering mental trauma from it after x many years? No. Mr Davis has long-since moved on.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-oxfordshire-47686844 You'll find a range of perspectives over the issue between those who would argue this is an unforgiveable assault that exemplifies gender-based double standards in Western politics to those who would argue that it was a one-off incident tha...

We've now spent several days and dozens of pages rehashing the rights and wrongs of the decision, and why we think it was terrible/not terrible but badly communicated/absolutely fine.

Hello, thread. I'm here too, I guess. I don't have much of a stake in this, as I was never really one to post in either of the 'wing' megathreads, or anywhere in NSG for that matter.

As I recall they do have a claim on Libya from the days of the Pharaoh. Well, if you go by the 23rd Dynasty , Libya rather has a claim on Egypt. It's not just the 23rd Dynasty. Much of Egypt was ruled by Libyans throughout the Third Intermediate Period (c. 1069 – c. 664 BC). This was an era marked ...

The aim was closing RWDT. It is not politically possible to close RWDT and not LWDT. LWDT was closed for sure because RWDT was closed and it must be balanced. As I've posted at least twice in this thread, this simply isn't true. You don't have to believe me, and no one can force you to believe me; ...

I don't think it's actionable.

I'm reading 'devoid of humanity' as synonymous with 'devoid of compassion'; that's not, I think, actionable in the context of this discussion.

I think the mods have a different motive regarding RWDT tbh and just decided to shut LWDT too to look unbiased. This is incorrect.

This may just be Egypt saber-rattling to distract from their poor overall handling of the coronavirus. But I suppose we'll see.

So whilst Labour head more towards a more moderate opposition under Starmerism, Layla Moran seem keen to mop up those momentum voters.
