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.

I didn't know the age limit was as low as 14. But it was just shotguns wasn't it?

Re: Trump President Terror Thread MAGA MAGA MAGA CUCK CUCK

Why do Americans think their Second Ammendment justifies private gun ownership? "A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed." Millions of households having rifles and pistols is not a regula...

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.

Re: Best Lyricists

Another vote for Martin Walkyier. Dani Filth's lyrics are good but it's more like poetry crammed into a song. And Dio! Contrary to what some think (or used to) he didn't write fantasy tales but used mythical imagery to represent real situations.

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

I could see an argument for Pantera, due to the impact they had on the sound and direction of mainstream metal. However, most people on here would think that impact as predominantly negative. You think Pantera are largely responsible for brutalising metal? I've noticed that a lot of the Millenial g...

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...
