In Topic: UKIPpery

Incidentally, increasing support for the EU is typical in countries where there is little faith in the domestic Parliament.  In that sense, I think increasing support for the EU and UKIP may not be  contradictory, but the same phenomenon.

Being in the EU has not been as popular as it is at the moment for over twenty years, and Cameron is on a crusade to ostracise us from it to placate Farrage because it's what the British people want.  FFS what a plank.

 

Most EU nations already have an equivalent to UKIP in their mainsteam politics, so while Cameron is reacting with alarm most EU politicians merely shrug their shoulders at the idea.


In Topic: Keiron Cunningham- the player

23 October 2014 - 12:23 PM

Yep, Hanley wanted to swap him for a complete no-mark player in 1999. One of the reasons why many of the senior players at the club that year revolted and gave the club an ultimatum that either Hanley went or they did - Thankfully the board saw sense and ditched Hanley after just 1 season.

No mark is very unfair on Pachniuk (www.totalrl.com/forums/index.php/topic/237714-greatest-hooker), but swapping Cunningham for anyone would be crazy.  That statue of Cunningham outside Langtree Park is there for a reason.

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?


In Topic: Prioritisation

22 October 2014 - 09:25 AM

This makes sense.  It is in line with the man who, being done for a parking offense, suggests the police should be tracking down murderers.  None of the offenses are trivial, but clearly there are king pins and consumers and the former are the priority.

 

The prioritisation is putting effectiveness ahead of indignation.
