Milkshake

Can we pack it in now and act like grown-ups?

I honestly don't give a **** what people throw at Tommy Robinson. He's a nasty vile little thug who is more than happy to throw punches (when backed up by his minders). Ultimately you reap what you sow.

However, if you throw stuff at Farage, he gets on the news. Again. If he was spouting his nonsense and people just ignored him and got on with their day, we might not see quite so much of him maybe.

Yesterday, there were protests about Trump. Fair enough, it's a free country. There were some people supporting him too. Also fair enough. It's a mystery why anyone British would be wearing a MAGA hat and cheering for him but each to their own. If someone is doing that, there really is no reason to chuck drinks at them. Argue, debate, reason, persuade by all means but if you resort to throwing strawberry milkshake you really lose the moral and intellectual high ground.
symon, Sterzo and MalcQV like this.

Auto Express - six issues for a quid. Offer must end soon (and then immediately start up again).

Yes.

But ..

“I didn’t know that. What can I say? I didn’t know that she was nasty,” Mr Trump said, when asked about her comments.

“the president tweeted that he had not said the wife of Prince Harry was nasty. “Made up by the fake news media, and they got caught cold,” he tweeted.”

What do you do when someone continually lies to you and then denies that they are lying?

Give us some suggestions and we’ll do that instead

Trump is an aberration, a blip. He's like an experiment where you give someone multiple personality disorders and put them in a position of power just to see what happens. I don't think the problem is him as such, it's all the people who put him there, support him, and either choose to be oblivious to, or don't care about, the lies, deceit, denials and childish name calling.

I think Trump is tearing up the rulebook as he goes.


Barefaced lying and instant denial is now everyday.


Doesn't matter. No accountability.

It’s coming to something when the behaviour of folks yelling about how bad [enter name here] is, scare you more than [enter name here] themself.

Agree 100% re the milkshake lobbing. It diminishes their point and argument. As a related aside, it’s alarming how ugly these debates are, and how simplistic many of them have become - you have to either love or hate. That’s never going to make for a considered debate.

Are online echo chambers spilling into the offline world to blame for the ‘them v us’ mindset that characterises many clashes that now occur? (And not just with respect to politics)

A driver is always faithful to a car that's always faithful to its driver.

Sometimes in the darkest hour, love comes shining through.
Then it doesn't seem so far from me to you.

Laguna, Elgrand

Lobbing foodstuffs has a long and distinguished past.

Personally, I couldn't be arsed as I'd rather just ignore the morons.

It's much easier to view humankind as an extremely overrated species. The VW of the animal world.
