UK Politics
 
A forum for UK politics, because everything on here is American, and because I have relatives in the old country that bemoan and grumble on and on about the state of the UK.

Fun fact: Speaking out against the monarchy is still technically illegal in the UK and may lead to harsh penalties

Like being forced to listen to One Direction. Cruel and unusual, indeed.

Edit: can we do Irish politics here too?

I was going to post a thread for the EU referendum, could a mod possibly add an in or out poll?

I'm by no means a Cameron fan, but (for anyone who doesn't know) he was quoting Corbyn, who kind of said his death was a tragedy a while back.

Someone should have told that to the Sex Pistols.

Northern Ireland for sure, but Ireland as a whole is kind of separate from the UK.

I think he's finally admitting that Ireland only ever mattered as a part of Britain. Now they're just kind of... there. I think they have running water and electricity now, though.

I heard that to. Apparently you can actually make a phone call to Ireland now.

Rumour has it, that they finally have dial up telephones, apparently they still have to spin the telephone crank pretty fast to dial out though, but good to see that they're catching up. :)

This is uncomfirmed, as who would want to call Ireland, anyway?

Maybe one day they'll even get those new-fangled "smart phones" I keep hearing about.

And do they use British spelling in Canada? I notice that you spell "rumor" with a "u". And that you keep using "Cheers!", which I've never heard an American say.

Yes in Canada we remained loyal to the queen and followed the rules, unlike you hoodlums down south.
