Why do we get the shit trolls? My wife tells me that even Mumsnet trolls are better than 118, bugface and the St Petersburg massive.
That's right. She told me the same. Although you're not doing too bad yourself.:smile::smile::smile:

At last, something from bugface that isn’t pure shite.

She mentioned your micropenis; is that the reason behind your obvious envy of every other normal human?
 
I also don't think that a huge portion of the electorate believe that the Labour party is too left-wing, as you state. That would contradict the huge gains Labour (under Jeremy Corbyn) made in the last election. Folks aren't nearly as stupid as politicians like to think and when Labour came forward with a fully costed manifesto, they took notice. Not only was it fully costed, but it also contained items that were very dear to folks' hearts, for instance, bringing the NHS back into the public sector, building more affordable homes, re-nationalising the utilities, among many others. And what did the Tories have? A half-arsed manifesto in which they blithely stated: "We'll be doing all this and all that (including making pensioners forfeit their homes to pay for their care), but we don't actually know how and we'll tell you what it costs after we've won the election". It's small wonder that they actually lost and could only form a gobment by bribing the MPs from the Six Counties with £1.5 billion from a suddenly appearing "magic money tree".
Indeed.

And yet people STILL voted for them - because the alternatives were too left-wing.

That’s right, folks still voted for them, although I’m not so sure about your conclusion that it was because the alternatives were too left-wing.

Labour certainly proposed an agenda that could be considered “left-wing” in the present political environment, but which would have been considered fairly “mainstream” in, say, the 1960s or 1970s. There’s also the point that Labour party managed to convert the largest number of votes since 1945. It’s also now by far the largest so-called “left-wing” party in Europe with almost a half-million members, as well as a promotional/supporting organisation (Momentum) comprising thousands more. All that is very difficult to explain with any sort of wishful thinking. There was obviously something in motion at the 2015 election that could be termed a “voting revolution”.

I believe the “problem” has far more to do with other fundamental conditions than your, in my opinion, rather simplistic statement: “the alternatives were too left-wing”. Tories will vote Tory, whatever happens. That may be down to “tradition”, that is, their parents “have always voted Tory”, of from a genuine (but sadly misguided) impression that the Tories really are doing their political best for everyone in the UK, regardless of “status”.

The very same could also be said of traditional Labour voters, no doubt, since the Labour party has successfully sold itself to the UK population as a party reputedly representing “the workers’ interests”, when from begin an it has always been a party to modulate between Capitalists and workers – to the inevitable detriment of the latter.

But the results of the 2015 election eclipsed any relevance to “traditional voting habits”. Things were moving on the political landscape that no-one could foresee and work against. Far more folks than before (in whatever age-group) realised (in my personal view because of the Brexit referendum) that they could actually make a difference with their vote – which was formerly, and without hope of any real change, used to vote for “the lesser (political) evil”.

What we now have is a situation indicating that the “normal” rules don’t apply. The Tory party sent out its best folks to persuade the crowd, but that wasn’t enough by far. The Tory party endeavoured to silence any criticism of its radical measures desighen to support the "status quo" by banning reporters from reporting and by banning any outlet from broadcasting negative news on pain of being excluded from gobment “press conferences”. Is that really what a “democracy” is all about?

You really do need to pay attention, I think you will find that the election you are referring to was in 2017, why should anyone believe your statements if you can not get the date of the election right, your whole argument falls upon such basic errors.

All very fascinating.......no really.
However this is what Labour really thought of the hard left at the last election.

All That Is Solid ...: The Far Left and the 2017 General Election

Principled position. Now there's a phrase you never associate with the Socialist Workers Party. Recently abandoning the Trade Unionist and Socialist Coalition, after (reluctantly) cohabiting with the Socialist Party and the RMT to no discernible benefit whatsoever, the SWP decided talking to people on the doors about the issues that mattered to them was getting in the way of selling papers and organising A to B demonstrations. Which is entirely typical of them, of course.

However, it's Friday night so drink some turps, smoke some backy and regail us with tales from the left, Bugsy style.
 
An interesting thread about the new cold war, yet @DaManBugs has managed to derail the whole thing and turn it into another one of his clown Marxist pile of crap.
That's why I'd like to see his posting privileges restricted solely to the arrsehole, or failing that, create a new subforum called "Bugsy's Sandbox".

What's the betting he'll claim that it's others and not him, he'll shout about bugsy bashing and anyone who doesn't agree with him is arrse vermin. The man is an incessant troll.

So what's you're actual, and obviously ongoing, severe, and entirely personal. "problem" with me, Gunge_Thickie?

If my posts are so apparently "abhorrent" to you, why don't you simply put me on "ignore", gobshite? Nothing simpler than that, is there? The fact is that you don't provides a clear clue as to why you obsessively continue to pursue me across ARRSE threads. Ever wondered about that. bollock-brain?

Just remember that you've dediced to derail (again) a thread dedicated to "The New Cold War" just to get in your entirely personal strokes against "Bugsy". :mrgreen::mrgreen::mrgreen:

Hurrah for Friday!
 
@Bugsy has been called out to a feral avian emergency and has asked me to post his pre-prepared reply...

Did you know I speak German in 98 languages and I pretend that I was an international drug dealer. So scrotal catatonia, where does that leave your stupid argument.

Says the idiot who has made one post with reference to the new cold war (which was utter pish and quickly trashed by everyone)and then spent the next 14 pages completely off topic spouting his usual left wing bollocks!
But please carry on as I have nothing else planned tonight.

Now, intereresingly, why would all these fine, upstanding fellas opt to deliberately derail this thread about "The New Cold War, and instead, decide to pursue their very own highly personal and self-serving agendas, just to get in their very childish and playground licks at Bugsy, eh? Does anybody have any idea?:smile::smile::smile:

OOH!.... OOH!..... SIR......I know!

It's because it's fun.

So apart from your pathological hatred of all things American, who else do you think is a danger to world peace.
What about a rogue Middle East state?
Maybe the Russians?
Pakistan and India could kick off anytime, or maybe old Fat Boy in North Korea.

No Bugsy's world is falling apart because some anonymous guys on the internet are taking the piss!
