Yes - I'm sure that was the case when Stella and his mates were torching police vans during the Poll Tax riots.

Using a proper noun for the noun 'loser'. Fake news.

I'm not too sure I understand the relevant comparison between sneaking out at night and destroying a camera and taking part in violent street riots.

Do you seriously think the international yellow vesters are not angry about workers rights, wages and conditions?

Or are you taking the side of the neo-liberals?

You used the catch-all term 'civil protest', which you described as 'a middle class indulgence'.

Dear God, I know you can’t read your own posts but I wish you would take more time over other peoples’. I said ‘such civil protest’.

This thread is about the English Defence Gammon Jaune protests causing havoc in Westminster and outside Gregg's in Manchester. The international gilets jaune thread is in GCC.

Oi Rags, there's a moon landing conspiracy thread which has resurfaced over in the GCC which I would have thought is more up your street. JAT.

BTW, how's that believing in Sorloth going?

They emailed me recently, about standing at football stadiums, as well. Some of us here are pretty major players, don't you know?

They were also in touch with me about the fraudulent campaign funding - said they were cool with it.

These Brit yellow vest people - they are actual flipping Gumbys, aren't they? Who in their right mind would want to be associated with them?

Lol - Are you thread monitor?

Perhaps you should send Maz to the naughty step - he's been talking about the actions in France. Or would that require you to be objective?

I realise that my posts on a wide variety of subjects are some of the most interesting things to ever happen to you.

But you need to get over me. It's unhealthy.

Major players at what exactly? Minecraft?

Either way, it seems likely that Conservative party HQ have targetted you as existing or potential supporters. Interesting.

Double whoosh.

I realise El Aguila was tongue in cheek, so was my reply.


Incidentally, his describing himself as a 'major player' was about the same level as me saying I 'won the debate, despite being heavily out-numbered'.
You and your minions are still getting your knickers in a twist about the latter weeks later it upset and whooshed you so much.

Thanks

It's not a record though, that's about 18, or 19 if 'special' posters like yourself are included.

The yellow vest protesters in this country are a bunch of far right fascists. In France they have a significant progressive side.

I say it because you routinely repeat racist myths about migrants bringing down wages and don’t support freedom of movement.
