What does it matter how many people live in one house?
That argument makes zero sense :slol: .

It’s a racist stereotype that Asian people will have 14 people living in the house. Back in the 70s they’d have said West Indian families would have 14 people living there.

It’s designed to frighten thick people into thinking they are being outbred by non-white people.

Yep. It says a lot that the most 'progressive' of the Tory leadership candidates is specifically appealing to horrible old banana splits who think all society's ills could be solved by bringing back the cane.

But that's the vote he has to appeal to if it goes to the party members (and Denny of course, as the North's sole representative).


strawberry floating Tories man. If it weren't for the fact they're rapidly being subsumed by something far worse in the form of the Brexit party their slow demise under May would be cathartic as strawberry float.


Yeah the death of the Tory party isn’t much fun if they get replaced by the even worse Brexit Party.

This is why I'm so utterly hard-line with regards to right leaning politics. You can't say you're a moderate Tory, or an economic Tory, or a Tory because you've always been a Tory. If you vote Tory you're complicit in a system that has irrevocably made the country worse for its most vulnerable, and that has taken advantage of popularistic rhetoric and fear mongering to warp this demographic against themselves. Lumpenproletariat indeed.

Michael Gove last night admitted taking cocaine on ‘several social occasions’.

The Tory leadership candidate said he used the banned substance when he was younger and deeply regrets it.

He told the Daily Mail: ‘I took drugs on several occasions at social events more than 20 years ago. At the time I was a young journalist. It was a mistake. I look back and I think, I wish I hadn’t done that.’

‘It was 20 years ago and yes, it was a mistake,’ he said. ‘But I don’t believe that past mistakes disqualify you.’

He made his admission ahead of publication of a book about him by political journalist Owen Bennett – extracts of which are exclusively published in today’s Mail.

The book – Michael Gove: A Man in a Hurry – says the Environment Secretary owned up to having used cocaine when he was being ‘put through his paces’ by advisers in the 2016 Tory leadership contest.

The startling admission came when he and the aides were trying to anticipate what questions he would face from the media.

An inside source said Mr Gove said ‘Yes, cocaine’ when asked if he had ever taken drugs.

‘Gove was instructed not to give that answer in public, and told to fall back on the words David Cameron had used when he was running for leader, namely that politicians are entitled to a private life before entering politics,’ the book says.

In the event Mr Gove was never asked the question. Despite forcing Boris Johnson to pull out of the contest, Mr Gove withdrew after being beaten by Mrs May in the second round.

If anything I'd rather politicians did dabble with drugs in their youth. It brings them one tiny step closer to being regular human beings instead of weirdo robot psychopaths.

The one tiny step wasn't enough to bring him back from the many giant leaps taken in the other direction.

Maybe he just needs an opium session with Rory Stewart to mellow him out.

The issue isn't that they've done drugs, of course they have every Tory is a banker from the 1980s, it's that it highlights the hypocrisy all of these wankers live by. "Sure I've done more snow than Shaun strawberry floating White but I'm still going to demonise the use of recreational narcotics for everyone who isn't worth 10 million pounds, especially for poor black communities, in order to appeal to the crumbling-cunt demographic who've never done anything harder than a pint of piss-warm ale in their overly long, supremely privileged lives."

Can't argue with that.

I am strongly in support of legalisation.

This will be a pretty unpopular post, but it echos many of my thoughts on the current resurgence of the Lib Dems.

Leadsom now. :fp:

All them support draconian drug laws while using their previous drug taking as a way to make themselves seem more normal.
