They really don't like Broadstairs, do they? On the other hand, I have similarly strong feelings about Swindon, so who am I to criticize?

I think they're a spoof. UK has quite a long tradition of parody parties standing in elections.

Getting Involved in Communist Politics

Read current communist and communist-sympathizing websites and publications. Some good examples include People's Word, libcom, and The People's Daily Morning Star.

A Ukip source said having the Al Zebabist Nation of Ooog candidate take part "makes a mockery of democracy" and so Mr Farage preferred not to attend.

Quote:
And here we have it, straight from the horse mouth of the White media. UKIP are scared of us. Farage has been avoiding us since the start of our campaigning - because he knows he cannot defend his hate crimes and shall crumble in fear before our Prophet. As for the "making a mockery of democracy" jibe, may we be the first to assert that we are deadly serious party with a divine mandate from the Almighty OOOG.

To make light of the serious matters we raise - racism, post-colonialism, White inbreeding, the Broadstairs problem and more - just goes to show who and what UKIP really are. They are the joke party, they are the ones making a mockery of democracy, and they are the ones people should seek to avoid - not us. For we are the voice of the downtrodden, we are the voice of the people and the people have had enough.

This video by the author of the Leninology blog:

It's not so much what he's saying, it's the fact that he looks exactly like a serial killer the whole time he's saying it! The way he turns his face downwards slightly, staring directly into the camera, with a totally discordant smirk on his lips, is really unnerving. Also, while beards are in fashion at the moment and can make some men look like a cuddly wookie-like creature, somehow he comes off looking like Peter Sutcliffe (the Yorkshire Ripper).

Channel 4 will shut down E4 on the day of the general election, in a bid to encourage more young people to vote.

Lol is the UK going through a "voting is important" phase similar to the US craze that was big around 2000?

Getting a Labour government on 8 May will be the beginning, not the end, of a renewed fight for working-class political representation. If, in the campaign to win that government and kick out the Tories, socialists have been able to build up a caucus of workplace and community activists who want to push Labour much further than its neo-liberal leadership wishes to go, we will have used the election time to good purpose.

If you scroll down, it has what might be one of the best pictures I've ever seen. I laughed myself silly at it.

Caption reads: "Avoid causing physical or mental harm other people in the course of your revolutionary activities. Becoming an oppressor yourself will not further the communist cause, and will only land you in jail!"

Should read: "Try not to make this face when debating with liberals."

'Kin'ell. I'm so glad I don't do Facebook... an Auschwitz selfie and "shoot them all" attitude. I fucking despair sometimes, I really do.

Not my kinda humour fella. Just symptomatic of the general lack of awareness and loss of basic humanity that seems to be common with increasing numbers of young people these days. We've really got our work cut out.

Anyone taking a selfie at Auschwitz with that expression on their face is doing the usual thing neo-nazis do when they go there to take photos of themselves gloating. She may be a Barbie nazi (a Klaus-ie?) but don't let the pink dress fool you. There is no inconsistency or "not getting it" in that FB screengrab, just the usual vile politics

There have also been people like that, I'm not sure things are necessarily getting worse.
