I'd say it's not inconceivable that we'll see something similar in the UK in 2019.

Especially as so many of the options for Brexit are likely to upset one group of people or other.
I can`t see it..The British people are weak and let the government do what they like.

They privatised everything for their own wealth,while a lot of other people`s living standards have dropped dramatically since capitalism.
The discord in France has all been organised,coordinated through Facebook. We are tech mature in this country and media platform disruption, is easily within our capabilities. Unsurprisingly,we have had a lot of practise...

You only have to look at what happened in March this year in Stratford.

Ok, it was cancelled at the death but social media had organised a very sizeable protest at the way a very short person ran a football club, which, in the grand scheme of things, isn't the most important of life's worries. I even made the journey myself from Somerset and I'm not exactly Che Guevara. As it happened it was cancelled at the death but could it have turned nasty if it had gone ahead ? Of course it could.

As I was in London anyway I watched us lose to Burnley. I think I'd have preferred the punch up.

I live in an area where feelings are quite high.

In parts of Bristol that voted to leave 70 to 30, it really won't take much of a spark to light the blue touch paper.

And had it have happened, could it have turned a bit tasty ? Of course it could.

Tereeze,in her capacity as the then Home Secretary, approved a raft of new laws,that could be enacted to cover civil disobedience.That's where the rubber hits the road.

She also, through unhealthy Police budget cuts, made the enforcement of those laws more unhelpful. That's where the punctures start...

A state of emergency likely to be called today because the price of fuel's gone up.

Fuck me. If we were of the same persuasion here the whole fucking country would be a war zone.




The French.


Utter cunts.
Many were anti Europe and of the right persuasion but in the end the country voted in a fucking socialist with all the loveys saying what a marvellous strike this was for social justice. First sign of them having to pay extra for fuel to fund other miscreants and the wheels come off. Socialism doesnt fucking work. The answer is always tax the fuck out of people who work bloody hard (or pensioners as well in his case). Serves him fucking right...a hint of what it would be like under Corbyn.

We do our talking at the ballot box mate, not in the streets like a bunch of uncouth scoundrels. You may have seen the French carry on as a heroic hammer blow to capitalism, but in reality it was a bunch of c*nts who just like the idea of smashing shit up for the most part.

Talking about capitalism, it was their much-talked about Socialist Government that kick started all of this shit.

No time for rioting, doesn't harm the government, does harm innocent people and businesses. But, please, do our talking through the ballot box, FFS we only have the opportunity to do that every 5 years. And even then we get a government, every time, which more people have voted against than for. Democracy it isn't.

Didn't we also get the chance to vote for a change to the electoral system not that long ago? The people had their say on changing the current system and decided against, so that is democracy.

I genuinely do not remember that happening. When was it ? In any case how can it be democratic if we get a Goverment like Blair’s with a massive majority in the house but a minority of votes at the ballot box? That isn’t a dig at Blair btw, simply referencing the fact that was the biggest landslide in seats I can recall.

Equally how can it be fair that UKIP polled massively in one or two elections but were not represented in the house despite their support in terms of total votes.

Do you mean Macron and his lot? He kicked out the Socialists when his En Marche party wiped the floor with Hollande a couple of years back didn't he? Nothing to do with the Socialists this mess, this is all down to the centrist liberal philosophies that France is currently "enjoying."

Marie Le Pen must be rubbing her hands with glee. Could an ultra right wing French Government be on it's way? I wouldn't bet against Le Frogs to put her in power in all honesty. Now that would make things interesting on the old EU/Brexit front! :lol:

Sorry,we have a country with weak people.The rich have made millions/billions through Tory policy,while the normal working people have had to suffer.

I an no socialist or lefty,but they have created a very unfair society.
