The thing is that from VNAs radicalised extremist perspective almost everyone is right wing.
Shame then how in the politcal views therad, well the result of the survey showed me to be very liberal.

The UK government was ready for this pandemic. Until it sabotaged its own system

Quote
We have been told repeatedly that the UK was unprepared for this pandemic. This is untrue. The UK was prepared, but then it de-prepared. Last year, the Global Health Security Index ranked this nation second in the world for pandemic readiness, while the US was first. Broadly speaking, in both nations the necessary systems were in place. Our governments chose not to use them.

The climate modeller James Annan has used his analytical methods to show what would have happened if the UK government had imposed its lockdown a week earlier. Starting it on 16 March, rather than 23 March, his modelling suggests, would by now have saved around 30,000 lives, reducing the rate of illness and death from coronavirus roughly by a factor of five.

The forum is dying because there are no posting rules like on most other forums, and the admins allow the same few people to take over motorcycle related threads and fill them with their political views and when asked to stop just carry on.
It's quite clear from the title this thread is going to be political. It's clearly not about fork springs or oil changes. Forum members don't have to read it.
And people who complain it is political, and then write a post opposing the politics of others, remind me of the family sitting on the beach interviewed by BBC News this week, who were complaining that the beach was too crowded

And the other one is to answer with a question like this

Quote from: mtread on 22 May 2020, 08:47:08 PM

QuoteDont you believe in personal responsibility then?


What a silly question   


Don't you believe in government and the rule of law then ?</blockquote>

Now that is the proverbial pot calling the proverbial kettle black :eek

We have a naughty corner so why not have a politics corner. The good thing about that is it is only viewable by members so any one looking to join wont see the shit we write in it. (Untill they join)

It's all OK. Number 10 says his 528 mile round trip was 'essential'. Phew that's a relief.


When you realise that two health advisers have been forced to resign for shorter journeys


One rule for government advisors, and a different rule for the rest of us.

Sure is mate, but are we surprised Boris and his gang have been doing it for years, plus without the weasel Cummings Boris would be lost.  Didn't you know it's Cummings who's actually the PM, Boris is just the front  ;) :lol

I think all of these advisers should not even exist or if they must then during a leadership election it should be as much about the adviser as the eventual PM they should campaign and appear in tv debates as a pair.


Ironic that the worst of them all Alastair Campbell gets wheeled out by the MSM, talk about hypocrite  :rolleyes .

Absolute bollocks once again, the original post was about how the media was were portraying Covid 19, it then gets politicalised in post 19 by guess who?
VNA of course with one of his ridiculous unfunny cartoons, gets called out for it by Yamfazfan and answers by a smiling emoji.

Wee Jimmy clung onto Catherine Calderwood for as long as possible though. It was only when the situation became embarrassingly untenable that she had to go ;) .

One of VNA's favourite remarks is , people get the government they deserve. Well this government is the one he and his cronies deserve, without it they would never have anything or anyone to blame for anything.
Yes and No.  The UK has the government that England deserves.  Scotland didn’t vote for this government, the only country in the UK that arguably did is England.

People have left this forum because of them, new members take one look at all their posted shit and never return
I would remind you Slappy that my sum total of political threads is 1.  I’ve been a member of this forum for pretty much as long as it has been around.  But if others insist starting political threads and expressing right wing views, at times extreme right wing views, I will refute them.

If you are unhappy with a thread or comments in a thread then draw the mods attention to it.  There are rules and they will act.


Only 45% of Scots voted for the SNP but the other 55% have to put up with their shite.


Since when have you been the one to decide what is right wing or not?  People are entitled to have an opinion that is different from yours and as long as what the say is not illegal such as racist etc then you have absolutely no right to call them out on it.


The mods on this forum are a joke and the only thread I can remember being deleted was one posted by a very popular member on here that you got deleted because it did not suit your " woke " views. Everybody else knew the OP  did not actually mean that a certain person needed a good kicking in the literal sense but that was not good enough for you.

Have you been drinking?  Bit early in the day isn’t it?  Look 75% of Scots did not vote Tory at the last GE, but cos 47% of English did – we gotta put up with your countries shite.  Get your facts right!

You are barking up the wrong tree mate.  I don’t start political threads.  But whatever you think, I am entitled to an opinion every bit as much as the next man.  Who are you to decide who is entitled to an opinion or not?

I’ve only ever started one political thread.  Ad I’ve only ever once directly approached a moderator. 



So tell me this – have you approached the mods with your complaint (whatever it is)?  Simple question.

It certainly is.


The French showing their true colours and as usual, all being hushed up and swept under the carpet.


Quite shocking really.


I wonder how many of them are carrying the virus and I also wonder how many of them are potential child rapists on their way to Scotland to join all the others that have only just to light after years of being hushed up.
