Farage is not fascist at all, but that's by the by.

Free speech is for everyone or no-one. There’s no middle way.

I know he's not. Just pointing out the toxic radicalism of the mainstream Left, of which, Leftists are entirely oblivious. They actually think their deranged views are normal and moderate.

PS--It is precisely so-called "hate speech" that is the litmus test for free speech. Hence, it is the only speech genuinely requiring protection. If we don't have "hate speech," we don't have free speech.

This is my MP, Ian Paisley (North Antrim). Although I am a unionist, I did not vote for him or his party. This is the second major scandal (this time involving undeclared Sri Lankan holidays) he has been involved in (people seem to forget that there was an earlier one in 2007-08). He has just been given the longest suspension from the House of Commons since the current system was adopted in 1949.

There may be implications for the Brexit votes in the Commons as the Government depends on the 10 DUP MPs to hold its majority after the hung parliament that resulted after the disastrous 2017 General Election. Paisley has also been suspended indefinitely by his party, the DUP, pending a party inquiry. There is talk of a by-election for North Antrim, and he wishes to run again.

The North Antrim recall petition, 2018 is a recall petition for the United Kingdom parliamentary constituency of North Antrim, in Northern Ireland. The petition is the first of its kind in UK parliamentary history, under the Recall of MPs Act 2015.

Really wish the wages of the MLAs who make up the NI Assembly would either be drastically slashed or stopped altogether, the lazy fuckers haven't turned up to work for more than 18 months now. But May is doubtless reluctant to upset the DUP due to the aforementioned depending on them for her majority, so the NI Secretary is powerless to act.

Pathetic.

Couldn't agree more on that, BI, only I'd demand their wages be stopped altogether while the assembly is not running. After all, no one else gets paid for not turning up to work! They are a collective disgrace, a shame on Northern Ireland and cutting their wages is the only way to bang their heads together and get some sort of workable power-sharing deal in place.

Would like to see an election here without the participation of the 2 parties who are (IMO) most mired in the past and use that to detrimentally influence the electorate (DUP and SF). It'd be interesting, to say the least.

Well I have ancestors who directly suffered the last time "far right fascists" had any real power, so excuse my lack of patience for moral relativism in that regard.

There are far more people on the planet who have ancestors who directly suffered when communists were in power. And I dare say that communism is a far greater force and threat today than renascent Nazism. The Nazis, BTW, were neither conservative nor Leftist. They were sui generis, regardless of how much Leftists pretend Trump is like, ACTUALLY HITLER!

And this is why Trump's so refreshing. He's doing everything humanly possible to deliver on as many campaign promises as possible. The UK and Europe desperately need a big batch of Trumplets.

Rees-Mogg appears to have time-travelled here from the Victorian era somehow.

Corbyn: Jews who've lived here all their lives don't understand English culture

Also Corbyn: ISIS Bride is as English as vinegar on chips and must be allowed back into her Britannic motherland.

Say what you will about Trump but at least he's not a self-loathing Islamist sympathiser. Britain should be embarrassed that their alternative prime minister is a communist swine.

To be fair, Corbyn is an alternative prime minister only in his (and his supporters) mind(s). Even with the Tories having seemingly bungled the Brexit negotiations, Labour has polled increasingly worse. If Labour cannot even get an increase in support when their main competition is a hopelessly divided Conservative Party, then you have to question the appeal of the leadership.
