Fed up talking videogames? Why?

crikies, people talking up the Lib-Dems. an amazing country I live in.

just a few short years ago they ditched policies to get in power with the Tories and suffered at the last general election because of it. oh my, oh my.

Sounds a bit like a Home Secretary campaigning to Remain in the EU but then going into full "Brexit means Brexit" mode when she gets a sniff of power.

Let's be honest, people are only talking about voting Lib Dem after the Clegg debacle because the other two major parties are ran by an incompetent elderly man and the female version of Hitler. I guess a bible-bashing homophobe would be considered the lesser of three evils. It's staggering to think that we have three major parties (well, four if you're Scottish) and none of them offer politics that appeal to a sensible human being.

Genuinly the Lib Dems hands were tied in the situation they put themselves in, but looking at how the coallition government did and what the full Tory government are doing now, I'd do anything to have the lib dems back at least holding back the tories from carrying out all their bullshit they're doing now.

Compromising on policies isn't a strange or bad thing to do - it's a necessity for forming a coalition government (which was what they had to do to achieve anything). The problem was /which/ policies they changed on. Namely, student fees actually rising.

May or may not be directly linked to Brexit, but Tesco has pulled the majority (and in some cases all) of Amstel, Birra Moretti, Sol, Tiger Beer, Kingfisher, Fosters, Kronenbourg and Heineken beers off the shelves. Publicly they're saying it's because customers now desire better beers (more craft beers have turned up, as has Budweiser Budvar in 4 pack and...erm...Bud Light). Heineken however want an extra 6p per pint.

Less choice in the supermarkets, higher prices....taking back control.

The lib-dems gave in to get grubby hands on power and suffered at the next election because of it.

The Torries gave me the chance to vote leave and between the 2, the lib-dems will never get my vote.

As a leave voter i suppose this is giving credence to my belief that the BBC is indeed biased.

Pity the remoaners though.

This always comes back around though. Left leaning voters believe the BBC is biased to the right of the spectrum and vice versa. It obviously cannot be both on a general level, thus this is a pretty good indication that the BBC, relatively speaking, does a good job of occupying the middle ground without obviously taking sides the vast majority of the time.

Even if some people think that it does lean slightly in one direction over the other, I can't think of any other news outlet out there that is objectively more neutral.
One man should not have this much power in this game. Luckily I'm not an ordinary man.

You keep saying that like taking back control should lead to cheaper prices or something. It reminds me a bit of "Our soldiers need vests not an alternative voting system".

Out of interest, how should any negative consequences of Brexit be reported?
