boris all the way!!!!!!!!!! anything to get ken out :)
#3
the lesser of all evils. i hope ken gets a lesser majority if he wins so he and his associates dont sit on their high horses ... and if it's boris he gets some top class advice on how not to throw away taxpayers money in entertaining and do some serious work to get to ground level. i think brian needs to reform the police service first and show us, if he can do that he could get some vote. if it's the green party sian, they need to be careful not to make green ideas too religious. not everyone has a choice to buy organic food (though we should, bring back the old days) and convert their homes into eco-friendly energy-efficient etc etc.

London is not happy because we know we can do better. and want results and good solutions fast!

i vote kippy
This whole green thing is political crapola - yes theres a lot of waste but global warming meh
i think what needs to be developed is a much better wind harnessing technology - not the nuclear plan
Want to blame any area for global warming blame asia - too many people = a lot of waste and smog

Anyways this is all normal for the planet - global warming happens just before the ice age - its how the planet heals

"We don't want our children being taught some rubbish about homosexual marriage being the same as normal marriage, and that is why I am more than happy to support Section 28."
· Boris Johnson, Daily Telegraph, 2000

And for that, he will never have my support. But if people want Wurzel Gummidge being in charge of major decisions in their city, go for it...

That comment is 8 years old, I think that peoples opinions change in that time. I personaly think that Boris should get in, mainly to hammer home the fact that Labour suck, big time.

Where I live has always been a labour strong hold, but the tories won yesterday. The times they are a changing

i have this theory that he is in the closet lol.

went to the polling station saw a guy at the entrance outside sitting on a fold-up canvas chair with a bicycle against the fence. wished him good morning (the sky was about to pour), asked him whether this was the polling station. he guardedly smiled and handed me a Leftist postcard. um ... too late i'd already sealed the postal vote and besides i never saw them in the area before!

Doesn't change the fact that he once said it and believed it.

so you have never said anything that you once believed in, and now dont?

When I was a kid I though a1 and back street boys were good, doesn't mean I do now

Hitler hated the jewish because he said they killed jesus + he was sick of them controlling the money and economy
#18
Hitler also blamed the jews for the Germans loosing the first world war, as they provided the clothes, which fell apart in the trenches. I don't think you can really compare Hitler and Boris Johnson. Kind of like saying a grapefruit is a banana

It's a sweeping generilisation, that is simply not true
#26
So is believing that children will somehow be corrupted or damaged by being aware of the existence of gay people, but that's what Boris believes...
#27
kitten what do u mean u thought backstreet boys WERE good... haha...!!
#28
Thats what a hell of alot of people believe. Catholic schools for example will not teach about it, my comprehensive school ignored the issue. Boris has a case of his mouth being alot faster than his brain, and I am sure he got severaly repremanded for what he said.

Who ever wins the election though, it wont change anything, Labour are still in Government, and still messing us all about.

I've posted it elsewhere, but just in case: (It seems to me that a lot of people who discuss things on forum don't read very much. It's generally thought of a good way to gather knowledge and put yourself in a position to make informed decisions :p)

Hard to tell whether you are being ironic or serious with your smilies. Anyway, I always find it helpful when people back up their opinions with something other than their opinions... It is very easy for me to say, for example, house prices will rise over the next six months. But it is a meaningless statement without evidence. Further, attempting to critique something/one with semi-oblique references to negative prevailing discourses is nothing more than a form of circularity. As well as being intellectually lazy, it can be interpreted as rather cowardly.

There is no such thing as gay marriage it's called a civil partnership here's my evidence! http://www.gro.gov.uk/gro/content/civilpartnerships :gift: This makes her article null and void, full of lies!

and oh by the way read all the comments on her article from readers :thumbsup:
"I am accustomed to some pretty poor writing on CiF, and particularly from Miss Williams, but this really is a disgrace. It's just a hatchet piece. Pathetic."

Awful stuff. Tired, ill-thought out, deeply disingenuous, no attempt made to treat the reader as an adult. I despite Boris but this is nearly enough to make me go out and vote for him, just to spite Zoe and her hastily-assembled panel of D-list cronies. Boris might not stand for the London I live in, love and recognise, but you sure as hell don't either. Pitiful.
#38
hehe - glad to see you start the process lumruk. However, a few points:

You might want to reign in the emotion a little. It tends to betray attitudes.

You could also do better by being less selective with your quotations. If you want to present evidence, it should be done in an objective way. If you simply cut and paste the bits that fit your opinion, then you need to think a little more carefully about what it is that constitutes evidence. See next point.

If you take the opinions of others in that forum and do something with them (i.e. analyse them in some way - e.g. even a simple categorisation of 'for' and 'against' comments) then you can present your results as evidence.

the above are just a few pointers. Hopefully you'll find them of some use. :thumbsup:

I gave up English after I had to retake it to get my C at GCSE, then gave up poetry at Open Uni when my tutor criticised my sonnet...now I'm going to give up this argument as you have criticised my methods! ;-)
