Re: The UK political thread (formerly independence thread)

It's looking like 5 more years of a Conservative government, then 5 more after that if Labour insist on having a woman leader after Jeremy Corbyn.

That's Death metal...I was looking forward to seeing her all corpse painted up....never mind
It sounds more like black to me. Satyricon or something. The vocals at least.

Re: Who is "The Greatest Metal Band" of all time?

As a serious connoisseur of alternative or 'underground' music since 1967 I reckon it's lamb of god.....(and Machine Head and Pantera not far behind). For variation of tracks, musicianship including vocal prowess, and grasping serious political nettles in the lyrics Give me two songs to support you...

Re: Use of Referendums

Referendums should, broadly speaking, (virtually) never be binding. Legally binding or not, it's virtually impossible for a government to press ahead with a policy when the majority has voted for something else. Cameron could have said "yeah, but it was only advisory - we'll stay in the EU&quo...

Technically, it appears not (though I personally don't mind):

Re: Use of Referendums

You could make the same arguments about elections. Especially with the shitty system we have where tactical voting is actively encouraged. Yeah. If the public are trusted to choose between long and complex election manifestos then they should be trusted on virtually any referendum question. Many MP...

Re: Use of Referendums

I think you're asking the wrong question (which, ironically was the problem with the EU referendum). The issue is not what percentage or ratio is required for the result to be legally binding. The issue is the question needs to be properly framed and actually have had some forethought behind it. I ...

Use of Referendums

I wouldn't want the Brexit chaos to make people think that referendums are a bad idea. I think they are essential to democracy but they should have certain limits.

Re: Trump President Terror Thread MAGA MAGA MAGA CUCK CUCK

Re: Alice Cooper: Trash - 30th Anniversary

I don't think MHR albums get much better than Trash, with only 2/10 mediocre songs (Trash itsel and O.M.H.Talkin'). I don't see a strong comparison to Guns N' Roses; more like Bon Jovi and Poison, but Alice has very often dressed his music in the current fashion while still giving it his unique stam...

Re: EU Referendum and Afterwards

Three years later!

Now Scotland is just 51% for staying with England but that could obviously change quite a bit either way.
