    A massive generalisation there about a particular group of people, and consequently a very stupid one.

    How do you feel about those who make critical generalisations about other groups such as black people or Moslems?

    Time for the opening lines of my favourite song by The Only Ones, I believe:

    Why don't you kill yourself,
    you ain't no use to no-one else...

    My patience - and my 'reported posts' inbox- is getting bored with your antics. Continuing trolling at your peril.

    It is silly, though, and untrue, to say that all rich people use offshore ploys to avoid tax. Equating the suggestion to racism is silly as well, of course.

    Of course it is. Wrongdoing is not confined to a particular income group, as some here seem to think.

    Bigotry and demonisation of a group of people is wrong, plain and simple. Nelson Mandela, in particular, would be horrified at such generalisations about groups of people, whether race based, income based or any other base used by the bigot making it.

    And of course, there's your bigotry and demonisation of people on welfare. Don't forget that.

    Quoting a single instance of where I have ever done this, would be nice, krytek the porky pie teller.

    You know, and I know, that you are pandering to your constituency here. The "reported posts" are solely because some here think that this website should be a place where only left-wing or extreme left wing people come to nod heads with each other, and who are "outraged" that someone should post opinions here that reflect the views of a majority of British voters. I post my views on other political forums without receiving any censure. Admittedly, they are nowhere near as left wing as this one, which reason being the main reason that I enjoy posting here, as exchanging opinions with those one disagrees with is far more interesting, in my opinion, than nodding heads with the likeminded.

    You need to take a good look at yourself and your website. If you don't want views aired here that reflect the majority in the UK, which I believe mine do, then you need to make this clear on your site.

    Hmm. That didn't work proper. I'll just c&p then, Larry

    "Why not just stop playing the victim and feeling sorry for yourself, pull your finger out, and do something for yourself instead of continually expecting others to provide for you?"

    "Socialism favours the lazy at the expense of the hardworking."

    "There would be more money available for the genuinely needy if people stopped claiming benefits when they could quite easily get by without them. And Labour supporters are the main culprits, in my opinion."

    And it's krtek, not krytek. You arrogant plum.

    I really don't, thanks. It's doing just fine, with or without you, as Bono Twatface wold say.
    This site makes no claims to represent the majority opinion: in fact, that's one of the reasons it exists.

    if you don't like it, then pop off to the Daily Mail forums where you'll find a sympathetic audience. As for us, weeelll I'm sure we'll manage to get along fine without you.

    Er, I didn't say it did. I questioned whether you want a site where majority views are also expressed, or whether, as it seems, you prefer only views of the left and extreme left to be aired here.

    I am sure that you will feel far more comfortable nodding heads with the likeminded. Should you decide to ban myself, due to your regulars dislike of majority views being expressed here, then I will get along fine without you too, but I will miss engaging with Socialists, Communists and those with minority viewpoints, as I know of no other forum where such views are so prominent.

    There is no policy about what gets posted here, but a site representing the kind of 'mainstream opinion' you seem to support would look very much like Daily Mail readers' comments, and they're fucking depressingly full of racism, xenophobia, homophobia, 'I'm all right Jack-isms' and the inane drivel spouted by bigoted right wing dullards.

    Plenty of views available here. But stupid, provocative, trolling right wit fuckery tends to be frowned upon. Especially on a thread such as this.

    Happy Larry, you've been asked several times, on this thread and others, which people in your opinion are genuinely deserving of benefits. An answer would be nice.

    There's far more shitz'n'giggles to be had from throwing out vague assertions than from being honest and clear about their claims.

    As opposed to the inane drivel spouted by some left wing dullards, that is posted here?

    You are obviously falling into the trap of being abusive and critically labelling people merely because you differ with their opinions. No doubt emboldened because many share your views on this website. Views that, in my opinion, are bigoted and not generally popular in the UK.

    On the current evidence, your opinions are just assertions unleavened by critical thinking. There's no debate, because there's little to grip. And what's the alleged popularity (or otherwise) of a viewpoint got to do with the exploration of ideas?
     
  24. Happy Larry

    Happy Larry Banned Banned

    Nonsense. You're just bitter because I, and most of the UK, do not follow your extreme views.

    Lol! So this site is all to do with "the exploration of ideas". Now that has to win the "most pompous post of the month award".

    Why not return to the subject of the thread, which is far more deserving of everyone's time than festering over my opinions?

    What are my views, then? Go on.

    Yes, pompous. Game recognise game :cool:

    Did you meet coconutjob on his way out, btw? He took over trolling duties from you, the last several days.

    As regards the topic, do you think views regarding welfare cuts and povery are extremist? Have you experienced poverty yourself? Is it bigoted to rail against the ills inflicted by your govt on its people?

    Please give some examples of these "bigoted" left wing views that frequently appear here. Time to back up your assertions please.
