    Britain is a 'post-Christian' country

    OK, fair enough, you believe what you want to believe but you do fall into the category of believe in a deity, just not a mainstream religious deity. Also I only said "most people I know are not religious" Given your above passage. This makes absolutely zero sense. Hitler was not tolerant, he...

    Britain is a 'post-Christian' country

    Exactly, most people I know are not religious but believe in a god/existence of some deity just not the Christian, Muslim or hindu god(s) for example. I think partly because they want to have some sort of personal reassurance, but also because religion is "mainstream" :roll:

    Rock overtakes pop in UK album chart

    I wish that they will break out of the notion that "Because it is new it is good" which applies 90% of the time. People are becoming dissatisfied with the increasingly bland song structures and lyrics which has constituted 2000's-2010's top 40 with only a few exceptions.

    Rock overtakes pop in UK album chart

    It may seem good, however by "rock" they mean the closest thing to rock in the top 40 - Indie. Arctic Monkeys, Bastille, etc.. all those who are counted in the chart for rock are technically not rock. The fact that they have a guitar-bass-drums line-up instantly puts them under rock for some...

    Major Flooding in Southern England as Thames reaches record heights.

    I think i'm quite lucky where I am, these are some figures of the river near me that I got from the Environment agency website: Currently the river has burst its banks and maintains that height, if we receive any large amount of rain it could spill over the flood defences! How are the water...

    Two million British people emigrated to EU, figures show

    That was my point, though plus the fact that the government will likely have less revenue if there are immigrants that take up the low wage jobs that Brits don't want/Would have to be forced to do. How is stating that the appeal of cheaper labour to employers is irresistible UKIP propaganda...

    Two million British people emigrated to EU, figures show

    I agree that "exporting" the elderly to southern Europe will benefit British health services, though I'm not sure that the cheaper labour likely to be offered by the immigrants will pay more into the system since employers will pay less on wages and so the government receives less tax from...

    Two million British people emigrated to EU, figures show

    1) That's likely to be the elderly moving to the Costa's in Spain, potentially military deployments and richer members of society going to the south of France or somewhere like that. 2) The Daily Mail is definitely Britain's favourite newspaper :D

    Is President Obama a Far Leftie?....Or something else?

    That was my point.... :lol: "5 things the Far left supports but not Obama: 1. Nationalisation of all Industries 2. Nationalisation of all property"

    Is President Obama a Far Leftie?....Or something else?

    I'd Place Obama on the centre left. 5 that Far left does not support and Obama does (Depends on the leftist, but in general): 1. Bailouts of Corporations, would rather see nationalised. 2. Lower taxes on manufacturing industry 3. Failure to close Gitmo 4. Made no...
