This will give you a better understanding of the UK https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FaVaBMtpxEU&list=PLHkdMfLiOpxj1dYhO1mSTDkkxmZcPQRz5 But all the British expats who work here seem so friendly They basically match my pre imagined profile Maybe it self selects in some way? Most British leftists...

I’m done. I’m done. Overall, this website is beyond redemption; this message is to inform y’all that I’m going to be leaving for an indefinite length of time. I don’t want to come back to this thoroughly rotten corner of the internet. My offline life has never been better; I might as well enjoy it ...

Race war. Duh. It is not a "duh". Instead what would have happened is that Leopoldville would have been a modern white city indistinguishable from Brussels and that people wouldn't have given more shit about the exterminated compared to the amount of concerns we have about Neanderthals. D...

I think you misread that. I was saying that the Mid-Atlantic accent isn't natural. The only unnatural accent is a forced one. I think you misread that.

This. The whole "If I can't be a perpetual upper class parasite i'll leave the country and stop influencing it" thing as a disincentive for a policy is as ludicrous as the whole No Deal threats to the EU. Dude. That's a positive. You're making me like the policy even more. We'll lose a bu...

Um... The kind that the Confederates speak in films about the civil war? :p I'm sure there are regionally distinct accents within the American South, but the distinction between them is rather lost on foreigners like me, just as most Americans would probably struggle to differentiate between West a...

Your concern for me, whilst misplaced, is touching. In truth, I don't dislike all American accents. I quite like the Deep South accent, and although it's not a "natural" dialect I'm also quite fond of the Mid-Atlantic accent. How is the Deep South accent not natural? I think you misread t...

Your inability to detect humour is showing again, Swaglord. I mean, I had suspicions that it was an attempt at (bleak/dark) humor, but I figured that I wouldn't take any chances in this regard.

Let me know if I ever start speaking like an American, so that I may flagellate myself as appropriate. I speak like the most polished of Yankee Northerners. 1) No regional accent 2) Pronounce every sound in a word (for example do not drop the -g sound in words ending in -ing) 3) Speak in as much go...

Wait, aren't you American? Seeing you use the word "mate" is kind of jarring, especially given you seem to be from a fairly well-to-do background. I am indeed American, and rather proud of my country (as is to be expected given my prior posts); my background is indeed well-to-do, very muc...

Well hopefully Corbyn will win, because honestly fuck Bojo and this government. He may well do, the right leaning papers that aren't full blown populist have started saying Corbyn is better than Brexit. God willing, Corbyn might get into power and manage to negotiate a new deal.

It's still a case of playing dirty. Wasn't labour also supposed to be whipping against this amendment? Couldn't they have provided tellers? no it isn't. having a public referendum is not playing dirty. Well, I would argue that it kind of is since it flies in the face of the way that our political s...

Yeah, I'm past that point of an "ideal" woman (nobody's perfect, after all). But I still have my standards. You can still go out on a date with someone who does not meet all your standards. You might find you were initially wrong about some of them. Standards can evolve and change as you ...

He talks a lot about elections for someone who doesn't want an election. A unicameral parliament would be an utter constitutional disaster. Our Prime Ministers already hold greater power than most heads of government; any Prime Minister able to command a majority in the Commons would, in absence of...

"Rule of one" is literally what autocracy means. Autocracies in the real world, for the average lay man, and as used everywhere, can be more than one person. Lay people use words incorrectly all the time. That doesn't erase the real meaning of a word, and in a setting like a political dis...

It literally cannot be by definition. In your opinion. No, treason is seeking to deprive the queen or her successors of their throne. If treason meant "doing things that aren't in the best interest of the country" then the prisons would be full to bursting with politicians convicted of tr...
