Fave election story this weekend has been that IDS knocked on the door of my friend's grandma and dad in Chingford. They thought the best thing they could do was invite him in for a cuppa and a 45 min chat so he wouldn't bother anyone else. Both voting Labour. Love to see it

There are two things PM can't stand: being intolerant of and casting aspersions on people and assigning them characteristics based on nothing more than where they are from, and the Dubs.

Thumbs Up Well said. 31 f**k the dubs.

Not true you met me Tongue sorry to be pedantic 
You were with one lunatic and I was with three, myself included, there is no way of verifying that you weren’t blaming the foreignders! To be fair, I thought that comment would get more bites.
Greed has won, big finance has won. Whatever small role elite clubs still play in the local communities from which they grew is dwarfed now by their position as global brands.

UKIP have a manifesto and apparently will stand in 44 constituencies.

They should have got the Dub in as leader, she would have got rid of the foreignders!

I agree it is vital, I’ll seriously have to consider moving to China or the Middle East if Corbyn wins. His list of taxes are ridiculous. I don’t fancy my job much in China but hey, if the UAE or Qatar won’t have me it’s better than Jeremy Land. 

Ireland is years behind England in particular in regards to racism etc. Britain has a much more diverse society from schooling, to the NHS. We’re still trying to get our heads around the Muslim faith in Ireland.

BoJo will never get his head around Islam. His views are, like himself, a century out of date and out of touch. Anyway, I didn’t think I could want a Corbyn victory anymore. It just proves that we shouldn’t place limits on our ambitions...

Yeah that must be why Ireland has had the likes of UKIP and the BNP win seats at European elections and a movement comparable to Brexit fuelled by anti immigrant rhetoric.

Regardless, Britain is still a more cultural diverse country.

That's blatantly obvious but how does more cultural diversity automatically equate to being a less racist society?

Culturally diverse but not culturally integrated. Lived here 4 years, Dublin 8 years before that. Racism is rife here, especially since Brexit, yeah I seen stuff spray painted on walls in Dublin but hear racism here as a matter of fact in normal every day conversation.
