Just to be clear, I sometimes get PMs from people who are too scared to post their opinions on here because they know what will happen when the caring, sharing mob denounce them for deviation.

So, even though I agree with my above post I'm only doing it as a favour. Pancreas being a tired old hack isn't enough to make me bother to post. He's one more £100 bottle of wine away from being a parody account.

I used to work in Japanese universities where my socialist bosses told me I'd be fired if I joined a union, I assume the UK has gone the same way and Pancreas has to pretend to be left-wing to get tenure/promotion.

Darling, please stop beating about the bush and just fucking propose.

What’s the most you’ve ever spent on a bottle of wine? I don’t think I’ve ever gone over 40 quid (even at a restaurant where everything is more expensive), and even that seems absurd. Possibly more when work was paying, but even then I doubt I’ve spent more than that.

130 on Krug Champagne, I think. But only once for a special occasion. Below that, probably max 80, but the bottles you get from Oxbridge colleges are often *way* under trade prices. So I've had quite a few bottles of Hermitage La Chapelle on that basis.

Canada. I was doing a rough conversion (~$70 = ~40gbp) for the benefit of everyone UK-side.

I’ve also just realized champagne probably counts as wine so actually I’ve paid for pretty expensive stuff, but only as a one-off like for an anniversary or a Wednesday.

Conversely the most I've paid for a beer is £7.58 on an Ambergris Kombucha Srebrenica Vermouth Foeder Sour X Collab 2015

Considering how long it’s name is, that might be a bargain.

I’ve paid $40 for a bottle of Westvleteren XII in a bar before. Blodwyn can confirm this if witnesses are required.

Andrew Adonis' humiliating u-turn on brexit seems to indicate there might be some worry in labour about losing the EU elections. Nobody believes a word of it of course, Seamus Milne is obviously holding a gun against his head, but its funny to see the FBPE'ers losing their shit over their fallen god.

When in Belgium recently it was on the menu for around 20 euros a bottle...when I go back in June I might actually stump up for it.

Shame you couldn't have done that before deciding to vote for one. Still, better late than never.

Quote
But I also remember something altogether more alarming: the songs you chanted at school. In her letter Chloe Deakin mentioned reports of you singing Hitler Youth songs, and when you were confronted by that, you denied it.

But I do remember you singing the song starting with the words “gas them all, gas ‘em all, gas them all”. I can’t forget the words. I can’t bring myself to write the rest of it for it is more vile that anything the teachers at Dulwich would ever have been aware of.



Quote
According to another teacher, at a Combined Cadet Force camp organised by the college, Mr Farage and others had marched through a Sussex village “shouting Hitler-youth songs”.

It's not hard to find this stuff. Perhaps it could be your next Unredacted project?

You know, you could just say "Oh, I hadn't realised that there was so much evidence for Farage's Nazi/fascist views. I made a mistake."

But you won't

Rather than arguing over whether Farage is a Nazi, why don't we consider what the political benefit is of claiming he is.

It's arguable there is no net benefit.

As with all nationalist rhetoricians, beat them on policy + patriotism. Outgun them as a patriot, destroy them on policy. Leave the name-calling to children/private.

We know the current tactic you're using has failed over and over again globally in the last decade alone so there's a decent sample size.

I dunno how many times it needs explaining to you that the EU elections are meaningless and only serve the purpose of a political dirty protest, which I fully intend to do by voting for whatever brexit supporting party is mostly likely to win in my area. If that is the reanimated corpse of adolf hitler himself then all the better. My only qualm with the brexit party is too many of their candidates seem far too normal and reasonable, they need more absolute rotters to dump in brussels and cause maximum trouble.

If Labour want to stop messing about and get on with helping us leave the EU, rather than frustrating it, then the Brexit party, UKIP or any other anti EU party cease to exist overnight.

I have to say though, for a man with such uncompromisingly hardline progressive views it's rather odd to see you supporting the EU, with its forced austerity, concentration camps in Libya, and ransacking of eastern european health services.

Maybe you ought to do a bit more research?

As a one-off, it’s worth it though you wouldn’t want to go mad on the stuff. I enjoyed it, but it was the capper for a long night of Belgian ales so I was in the zone (and slightly pissed) so there you go.

What are your estimations re: turnout, eh? I've no fucking clue whether we see a big boost, or people are so sick of it all they'll just stay home. Normally low turnouts massively help UKIP but I don't think that's a certainty this time, not with Tinge etc. in the mix.

As an aside, it's received opinion that the British consistently don't give a fuck about European Parliament elections but we're not even bottom 10 in member state turnout figures. 13% in Slovakia in 2014, 18% in Czechia, 25% in Croatia. That's amazing.

I don't understand why yer UKIP voters wouldn't switch over to The Brexit Party. TBP seems to be everything those mad bastards used to love about UKIP, whereas UKIP itself has become a party that seems to be positioning itself towards a broad church of people who once upon a time liked the BNP, folk who go to Football Lads Alliance marches and internet libertarian shut-ins. As much as I frown upon UKIP-types, I don't think they'd want to be associated with the types of alt-right people that are now running for election under the banner.

I reckon UKIP are going to be annihilated. Their only hope is that all their voter base do not watch the news and have no idea The Brexit Party exists and won't bother to read the ballot paper properly.
