God damn it Denny. Stop agreeing with the rest of us.

I for one have changed my mind and think we should have voter ID. It's the only way I can continue my proud run of disagreeing with Denster on everything to do with politics.

Has anybody told Denster that he is now officially a feminist and he is no longer allowed to refer to mammary glands as "Wally John Blacks"?

There will be a card with his welcome pack explaining it all, including a pack of quinoa and a guide to being a LBGT aware vegan.

That's good. Make sure you remember to send the lifesized cardboard cutout of Diane Abbott so that he can put it up in his window.

gooseberry fool I did. I've only just started the module on gender assignment and haven't quite gotten it down yet.

My apologies Denster, you are you, no matter how you decide to identify we support you.

Well, I've spent this afternoon having a look at each of the manifestos for the Tories, Lib Dems and Labour, and I've settled on voting for the Lib Dems.

So we have a PM that wants to make an excuse for poor parenting.
One man should not have this much power in this game. Luckily I'm not an ordinary man.

I just read that fully.

She's absolutely out of her mind if she thinks that will work. Even if somehow it did work, do we really want to be China? :dread:

The goal behind this is laudable:

"It should be as unacceptable to bully online as it is in the playground, as difficult to groom a young child on the internet as it is in a community, as hard for children to access violent and degrading pornography online as it is in the high street, and as difficult to commit a crime digitally as it is physically."


But the stated methods of moving closer to this show a fundamental misunderstanding of the Internet and its benefits. I'm not a fan.
