Although I will admit there are far too many labour peers :P

    It's all so undemocratic, and a throwback to Britain's more elitist days when the upper class lorded it over everyone.

    And no, they're probably not working on the database errors any more. They care even less for the spam sadly. And now we have no avatars so yay us.

    And you like the EU which is very undemocratic.

    Make up your damn mind!



    Also I agree with JackRabbit.



    Edit: I would rather have our avatars released back to us and put up with data base errors.

    But the EU is a significant step towards a better tomorrow. Once more people start paying more attention to it rather than burying their heads in the sand praying it will go away I'm sure there will be reforms. A united European superpower is the most efficient means of generating money and cultural influence, and I'm sure it can be achieved democratically. Given how stupid most people are and how the masses can't be trusted I wouldn't hold out too much hope though, not without a significant campaign of re-education to dampen down petty thoughts of nationalism. Unification certainly worked for Germany and the United Kingdom.

    It isn't nationalism to realize that a governing organization is corrupt and undemocratic.

    It's a breeding ground for Freemasons being given a job for life and a license to print money in the form of expenses claims. Not one of them has ever done a proper day's work in their lives, they represent not one single normal working man or woman in the nation. Oh, and they have some form of power while not being elected, forming just another part of the thoroughly un-democratic government of Britain along with the Royal parasites.

    Well by God just because we don't agree on some things that doesn't mean we can't be friends. I played World of Warcraft with people I had nothing in common with for 3-years and we spent 50% of the time on TS arguing about everything from microwave ovens to religion.

    Best 3-years of my life.

    I actually enjoy the arguments. Must be a cultural thing.

    I only wish Vexus posted here more often so we could see what he actually says and make merry with it.
