    Give trump a call, you sound like his kind of person. He'll probably put you in a luxury flat.

    It's no use trying to wiggle out of it.

    You need to take back the statement, or I'm calling antifa.

    How about you work for it? Or is that too much effort and you have nothing to offer to be able to move abroad?

    The latest conspiracy theory from Farage(I had the radio on and he came on) is that the new President of the EU was over and met the Speaker. This is obviously a plot to prevent No Deal or to keep the UK in the EU(according to Farage) against the wishes blah, blah, blah.

    Talking of Speakers, the current Deputy Speaker, who is going for the job said today that the place has a drink and drugs problem.

    I think anyone who saw Gove the other day could tell you that! He looked like he was utterly off his face.

    Drink, yes. The subsidised bars have often been known for MPs and guests overindulging. Drugs is a new one, to me anyway.

    Exactly. They post racist **** about the USA on a forum and people even come to back them up on it. Try to Owen Jones it, showing double standards and pretent it didn't happen.

    And this is the crux of the matter. I think I've said in this thread before that my wife had someone who works in the same company ask her when she's going back home now that Brexit is happening. She of course replied "at around 17:00 same as usual" because she'd much rather ridicule such views than rise to them.
    Unfortunately, a small minority of people now feel empowered to shun or reject anyone who doesn't fit their British, white, Christian view of the UK. However, they are a MINORITY. I take solice in that.

    You suggested a British guy should relocate his family to Poland on the basis he has a Polish wife. Even though they are settled in the UK.

    You're a racist.

    I could call you a few other things too but I'm not an unthinking troll like yourself.

    And now the rest of it...

    Or is context not a thing in here?

    Not sure the rest of it really justifies anything.

    Exactly there is zero context that would make saying "They could go home" justifiable

    Spot on.

    So miserable to see the emboldenment of bigotry along with the peacocking of ignorance.
    I can concur. In a similar vein a relative was saying to me last week how she's refusing to fill out the forms for the right to remain. She feels like the UK is her home. She's lived here for 15 years and taught hundreds of UK children in the school where she works. She feels like it's an insult to be made to fill out forms asking for permission to stay.

    Internet forums in 2019... diseased, vile, gutter trash places. I think a lot of people need to check their post count and evaluate their life as a whole. 99% of what I read now is low value, worthless crap.
