Does Nigel Farage have investments in a company that profits from referendums?

IMHO he's out to profit on it somehow like most of his ilk at the top of that particular rotten tree

Italy was a fascist state for almost twenty years. Mussolini was hardly a strong leader.

Fascism is a rather flexible concept, but weren't the states that are considered to have been fascist usually accompanied by a personality cult?

A can't imagine what a personality cult built around May would look like.


Well we already celebrate May Day..... :D

Which one? There are so many
All of the EU Countries that we are leaving.
Lets get out before we sink any lower as a country. Of course those of us that are exploiting cheap workers from EU countries; even if its only having them wash our cars and happy for them to be doing all sorts of menial tasks as the modern equivalent of slaves will not agree.

Oh Hell! May appears never to have had a single original idea in her head. Don't give her this idea!

Call yourself a Moderator? You're too moderate by half. I want you to be tough on silliness and tough on the causes of silliness. We're heading for Soft Moderation, I tell you, when we all voted overwhelmingly for Hard Moderation and all the many benefits that it brings. About time we brought silliness home after years of Euro silliness if you ask me. I'm not having those Euro-peans telling me how to be silly.
