    In an attempt to settle the argument, where do you position yourself politically?

    I put myself at centre left, but I understand that many on here would have the likes of me far left. C'est la TES.

    I've been described as both Marxist and Thatcherite so if you're in such a narrow banding you're doing well

    Anyone want to post a link to the political compass thing?

    Is this a pathetic attempt by the Tory party to gather data on who to target, now that the wings of Cambridge Analitica have been clipped?

    If it is, wouldn't the nation be better served is you got off your butts and sorted out the world beating track and trace you promised us? Any idea yet when it will be available?

    What will our alt-right and far-right posters do?

    They moan about not having a voice already.

    Thread title reminds me a couple of superstition sayings.

    Left for love, right for spite.

    Left for your lover, right for your mother.

    Nothing to do with thread, so apologies. Just what popped into my head.

    Left of centre here btw.

    I always thought alt-right was just a rebranding of far right, courtesy of Steve Bannon...

    The rebranding was only necessary for the same reason that NuLabour was.

    Alt-right is nothing more than an attempt to reinvent an extreme right wing ageneda and make it aceptable when it became obvious that the previous right-wing agenda was failing everyone. It was about creating as much diversion away from the real issues and apportioning blame for the parlous state the economy is in on those least deserving of the blame.

    Joe Public didn't cause the banking crisis. Joe Public never gave a toss about the EU before the Alt-right played with their minds, generating the nonsese of leaving the EU being the will of the people. The governments actions throughout the pandemimic in placing orders for PPE amd medical equipment with Tory doners who have no experience whatsoever in providing these goods; and not giving a damn whether they meet the required standards, tell you all you need to know about how corrupt our current govenment is.

    But for the emergency legislation that allowed these criminals to do whatever they want, it wouldn't be possible.

    It had never been mentioned by anyone before 2016. It was so inconsequential you didn't even vote to remain in the EU.

    No surprises there, that as usual, you're devoid of a constructive comment to add to the discussion, Madge. Have you ever taken time out to consider the point of your existence? Do yo actually have any thoughts worth contributing. You know, the sort that require you to spend time compiling into a coherenet post, rather than just an idiotic emogi?

    Considering only 19 contributions have been made so far there is a significant amount of hate in evidence.

    Another distraction. Are you incapable of discussinmg what's been happening in society over the last decade in a serious way, or can we anticipate your entire contribution to this site will forever be of negligent Value?

    Seriously, if you've got a point to make, why hide your light under a bushel?
