So predicatble. If there is trouble understanding what Matyn wrote, then the intellectual left is perhaps not as clever as it misrepresents.

 

Are you mistaking a cheddar-chasing Glaws boy who teaches Maths to 19 year olds in Manchester for a member of the intelligentsia?

That's a good news story and it must offer the more enlightened some reassurance.

Whatever gave you that idea? I have no difficulty in understanding what Martyn wrote. I read what he wrote and thought it was rubbish.

It's the way you tell 'em!

 

It makes us realise there's an intellectual in our midst.

The thing that drew my comment was the word "enlightened", which we usually associate with being more tolerant, as you imply, and perhaps more tolerant than our parents were.

 

On the other hand, some prejudices seem to be more acceptable, including, among other things, prejudices against organised religion, or against people who hold certain opinions that don't coincide with the majority.

 

I've always thought that there are some people who love to hate, but are able to pick their targets so that their hatred won't lead to them being ostracised.

 

So if you are intolerant of racism, cruelty, exploitation, discrimination, inequality and so on you are not 'enlightened'.

 

the prejudices regarding 'organised religion' seem to come from amongst the cults themselves or between sects of the various cults. Not belonging to one of these organisations, and objecting to the way they conduct themselves and treat people is hardly prejudice, and if you want examples of 'loving to hate' then the conduct of these cults and the sects within them is as fertile as the garden of eden. Ever been to a rangers/celtic game? Ever been to Belfast or Glasgow in the marching season? They are celebrations of sectarian hatred. Watch out if you are a 'progressive' jew and you find yourself amongst  fundamentalist, or you are the wrong kind of muslim.

If people were trying to make Martyn look daft, would his own contribution here make him an Uncle Tom?

 

Anyway back on UKIP, Farrage is a swivel eyed loon.

Greene King are being bought out.

EDIT
Wrong way round.  Greene King buying up yet more real estate.  ****ers.

What if you are a member of a disorganised religion? One who forgets to publish the times of its services, or where the priest doesn't show up? I think that may be OK.

the idea of people not tolerating organised religion is laughable. 

Organised religion is a byword for intolerance.

 

if you were a member of a disorganised religion then perhaps you would be a a methodlessist

It's obvious that a lot of you are struggling with the concept of enlightenment and bigotry so let me help.
My views are enlightened and to be fair some of our views are also enlightened but unfortunately you also hold some bigoted views too. If your not sure please feel free to pm me for clarification.
Some of you may have noticed that at times I appear to hold some views that are radical and others that are reactionary. That's because I am well rounded ( Shut it Leit) and have the mental capacity and intelligence to be able to reconcile this juxtaposition. Of course you may struggle with this.
I hope you have found this useful, but please if in doubt do not hesitate to ask.

At the risk of topic drift, many EU nations have a far-right wing party that appeals to pensioners and lower to working class voters with a mixture of anti-immigration politics and social conservatism combined with feel-good left wing policies (such as securing the state pension and welfare for elderly).  Generally, these parties boost the right wing as the leftie policies are abandoned to form a coalition.

 

Is UKIP turning into such a party?
