Which is why the Conservative Party mutates every 30 years to fit whatever ideas are in fashion. In the 1920s they were old school Imperialists, in the 1950s they were Keynsians, the 1980s Thatcherites, the 2010s they're slightly more socially progressive Thatcherites/posher Blairites.

I agree, we should bring back caning.
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

What is your position on Debtors' Prisons?
Probably not a Goat, either.

Fundamentally a good idea but it needs reforming. For example, in debtors prison evey couple of hours you should be stabbed in the balls.

Ah, you're keeping up the good work, Lurk.

Anyone have a take on Theresa May's call for "internet regulation" and how this all impacts Thursday's elections from a sane source?

Well it's been well known for years that Theresa May wants sweeping digital surveillance powers. When she was the Home Secretary she was behind the "Snooper's Charter". Unlike making the elderly and infirm sell their houses so they can buy precious fuel, this policy probably won't anger her base because most of them don't know how the internet works and those that do probably think its ok if everyone's emails are being read as long as it leads to some brown people being locked up.

Tessa was mad at Donny not because blabbing who the Manchester bomber was could hurt the investigation, but because it revealed that he was a jihadist that the UK foreign office had provided a "no questions asked" visa to go to Libya and help the 'insurgents'. He was in Libya, he was on the GCHQ watchlist and he was a repeat favourite on the anti-terrorism hotline - so why is Theresa looking for him on the internet?

Shutting down the internet is more important to Theresa May than stopping terrorism.
Not a winner anymore.

Gee that sure seemed reasonable and balanced until he only gave reasons why the EU is bad and absolutely no reasons why it might be good.

Like, if the only way to get out of a ****ty fisheries policy means also suddenly having to pay tarrifs to trade with the bloc that makes up 45% of our trade then maybe that's not a price worth paying.

So what would a Corbyn win mean for Brexit?

Probably a better measured exit with less Britain centric concessions to allow for eu trade at the expense of Labors entire political capital
No, no, he did. In the everything else section, at least. Officially, this makes him king.

Yeah, pretty much what Erops says.

I did a democracy. On my birthday as well.

I can't wait to wake up in disappointment tomorrow. At least I'll be at volunteering and have a bunch of giraffes and lemurs to comfort me.
