Rain Dog BS: UK politics. Last ditch attempt (1007* d) RE: BS: UK politics. Last ditch attempt 23 Mar 20


Why do you bother Dave the Gnome?

There never seems to be much discussion on these threads. It seems to be a person or number of persons of a somewhat left of centre and a few people of a right of centre view, arguing the toss about SFA. The general view expressed here seems to be "if you did not vote the same way as us then you are a brainwashed twat, etc etc." Let us be thankful that the majority of people in this country do not slavishly follow any particular party line.

A good while back someone asked if anyone talked about these topics in the pub? From the personas displayed here by some of you, I cannot imagine you having a chat in a pub with someone who voted differently. if I met some of you in a pub and you carried on in the same manner that you post here, I would just walk away from you EVEN if you expressed some views that I agreed with.

I did go to the pub before the close down, and I did talk to others who did not vote the same way as me. No one was harmed as a result of those conversations. With any ballot you just have to choose the one box to tick, even if you might not agree with every single thing which that party/choice might stand for.

We live in interesting times. An article that was online a good few weeks back, said that in the last election here in the UK, people might have voted for Boris but have got Corbyn instead. Just look at the last budget.

I hope that you and your families all stay well in the coming months. We all need people to remain calm and moderate in their behaviour. This morning I was outside Morrisons, which was closed until 08.00 to the general public. Once they opened the doors to us, people did not rush in, they just went about their shopping in a normal manner. Bread and milk were available but some feckers had taken all the eggs.

Stay safe.
