2014 first Scottish referendum
2015 UK general election
2016 EU referendum
2017 UK general election
2018/19/20 second Scottish referendum

How much does all this bollocks cost? Wouldn't be surprised if this time we have lowest ever turn out for a general election, the voters must surely be fatigued by now.

Politics is a subject that does interest me, but I know where Plainmoor78 is coming from, sick and tired of it myself right now, and thankfully there only 50 days to go.

Never been ashamed to admit voting UKIP for some time now, but feel a vote for UKIP this time around would be wasted vote, they're in no position to effect BREXIT, I want the BREXIT that I, and I believe most of the 17.4 million people voted for, sadly only one choice, never thought I'd ever say this, but got to vote TORY this time around.

Pro-Brexit tactical voting may be the answer, for whichever pro-Brexit candidate is most likely to win. Unfortunately (or fortunately) in most cases this will not be UKIP. But is Mrs May going to make it easy for us? Hmm.. http://www.breitbart.com/london/2017/04 ... -movement/

That's the thing, all I keep hearing is about the progressive (nutcases) alliance, but what they're forgetting is, just over 4 million people voted UKIP last time around, if they all vote tactically, and looking at UKIP social media, a lot will be, it will help the Tories.

This coming General Election will be actually the EU Referendum number two. I remember seeing an article which said that if last year's referendum had been a general election, the result would have been a landslide win for Brexit. If anything, there has since been a swing away from Remain and towards Leave. The Remainers will come up with all kinds of arguments, lies, and dirty tricks to thwart Brexit, the prevailing one being dire warnings of a 'hard Brexit', i.e. no deal. In truth, such a Brexit would be more advantageous to the UK than to the EU. They will be desperate to strike a deal with us, and we can effectively dictate the terms. But I'm sure we won't be too hard on them..

The true face of Islam:
Yesterday (24th April) in 1915 the Ottoman Turkish army slaughtered hundreds of thousands of Armenian Christians, many of them by crucifixion. Turkish army commanders gave these Christians the chance to save their lives by converting to Islam. Few of them took up the offer, thus demonstrating that their Christianity was not merely skin-deep or cultural. Read on:

Ha ha.. So who do you suggest? Jeremy Corbyn? Tim Farron? Apart from Rees-Mogg, the only real alternative would be Nigel Farage, but he's in the wrong party to be PM.

Anyway, in addition to Rees-Mogg, here's someone else who's always worth listening to: http://hitchensblog.mailonsunday.co.uk/
