+Aaron McLin So if Nazis wanna say 'We hate Jews', ok then, as long as they grant me the right to say 'Hitler was a genocidal madman and he should never be emulated ever again''

I have no problem.

As soon as Nazis start wanting to ban My speech, then they can go fuck themselves.

Same goes for Islamists.

'If they wanna shout 'Death to the West' they can, as long as I get to shout back 'Momammad was a megalomaniacal and dictatorial warlord whose example should also never be emulated again''

Then I also have no problem.

But as soon as they deny this right fundamentally they can go fuck themselves.

+B G I wonder how many electoral college votes the 60m of us would get...

Naturally, Scotland, Northern Ireland, England and Wales would be considered separate States.

Perhaps we could even give States Rights in the electoral college for Cornwall too?

Actually, the more I think about this, the more I like it. We Brits can be the 51st, 52nd, 53rd, 54th and possibly even the 55th States. Ooh yes! The Isle of Man and Gibraltar. Clearly states.

That's 10% of the electoral colleges with 20% of the population. Yep. I reckon we should do it.

Red Pandas are plush animals brought to life. Adorable, but they belong in the wild.
