Oh... and once again I am not denying a Islam problem... I am bringing to light that that you all seem to be ignoring what happens in religion period.

And like also, The Islamic crimes are made more horrible then that of other religions. Guess what my chances of having something happen to me here in North America by a Christiam are MUCH more then someone from Islam doing something.. because guess what! I am not booking a vacation to a Muslim state. I live in a "supposedly" Christian one. My life is in much more danger by some random Christian idiot then a Muslim one.

That would be more a result of there being what, 20 Christians in Canada for every 1 Muslim? Homosexuality is punishable by death in most Islamic countries. That alone should vastly outway any 'you're going to hell' statements you may get from a Christian.

I just modified the title a bit here because I did not want to start a new thread for the election.  But it's also likely somewhat related.

 

The Telegraph has a poll tracker:

this should be a familiar story by now
 

According to the Guardian, more than a third of voters (37 percent) say their opinion of the prime minister is more negative than at the start of the campaign, against 25 percent who say it is more positive.

The opposite is true for Corbyn, with 39 percent saying they have a more positive view of Corbyn compared with 14 percent who now have a more negative view.

Corbyn also leads by 13 points among voters under 50, and is tied with May among women.

If the election were held today, the governing Tory party would lose seats. Labour is in striking distance of winning a majority, and the momentum appears to be with Labour. So, what on earth happened?

First, May’s ploys struck a lot of voters as too clever by half. She seems like an opportunist, first opposing Brexit, then supporting it; first promising not to call a snap election, then changing her mind. Just another scheming politician.

But something more fundamental could at work. When Corbyn made public Labour’s platform, known in the U.K. as its manifesto, (“For the Many, Not the Few,”) the initial commentary from the usual suspects was that the program was hopelessly left-wing—raising taxes on the affluent, increasing public investment, re-nationalizing the national rail grid, capping rents—that sort of outmoded stuff.

Well, it turns out that a lot of ordinary Brits have been hungry for this kind of program. They certainly didn’t get it from the last two Labour governments, under Tony Blair and Gordon Brown, who joined the globalist, neoliberal parade.

A lot of the protest vote for Brexit came from disaffected Labour voters, who concluded that their party had joined the ruling elite. But Corbyn may bring them back to Labour.

*snip*

While Corbyn is an old-fashioned class warrior, class in Britain has not gone away; and a lot of the British left-behinds are evidently looking for just that sort of champion. Corbyn is similar to Bernie Sanders, and not just ideologically. A lot of people who may not agree with all of his program have a grudging respect for his honesty.

Corbyn drew barbs from Conservatives when he said that British support for ill-considered Mid-East wars had increased the risk of terrorist attack. But it turned out that most Britons agreed with Corbyn.

And Corbyn may have drawn the perfect opponent in Theresa May, who looks more conniving and opportunist by the day.

I agree that there should be certain people kicked out of the country and not allowed to be here. These are my choices:

 

 

 

 

 

 

I agree with your list and think these could be added BLM, Code Pink, AntiFa etc. Racism and intolerance is not the exclusive domain of the right, all sides have their extremists and nutjobs.

Part of a conversation with my cousin who lives in York UK

 

 

It's been a helluva week. Father of a friend of Em's still in hospital- severely injured when he arrived to collect his daughter.

 

It changes things when you realise it gets this close to family/friends etc.

 

They are very well traveled and go to lots of events in London etc and will continue to do so, but it certainly clouds things when you have one eye looking around you for things out of the ordinary.

the UK has laws requiring impartiality on the radio ahead of an election so this track can't be played but it's gone to #1 anyway

Opinion: Theresa May is doing a great Hillary Clinton impersonation with her campaign
Published: June 1, 2017 10:20 a.m. ET

LONDON — Maybe we should be buying euros right now rather than pounds.

British Prime Minister Theresa May is doing her best Hillary Clinton impersonation and trying to blow what should be an easy election victory on June 8.

If she does, that will surely be a short-term shock for the pound GBPUSD, -0.0310% and British stocks UKX, +0.32% . But it might be better news for assets across the Channel, as it will improve the chances of a friendlier, “soft” Brexit that keeps existing trading relations.

The British prime minister’s latest unforced error was refusing to turn up to a televised BBC debate Wednesday night that was attended by all the other party leaders. Since the start of the campaign, she’s rarely missed an opportunity to look high-handed, aloof or evasive. And that’s why the latest opinion polls show the Conservatives’ lead in freefall.

Just 10 days ago, in the wake of the Manchester terrorist attack, I figured the race was all but over. But British fund manager Crispin Odey likes to remind his staff and his clients that “we are paid to change our minds.” I am no longer anywhere near as confident on a clear Tory victory. It still remains the likeliest single income, but the odds have shortened on a coalition government.

“It’s been the most atrocious campaign ever,” one Conservative told me. A swing voter from the blue-collar north warned that a Brexit-style shock was possible in the June 9 vote: She said friends and family who had been backing May were now swinging back to support the Labour party and its far-left leader Jeremy Corbyn.

Today's benefit was something else.  First, Coldplay covers an Oasis song.  Then to everyone's surprise, Liam Gallagher shows up and even joins Chris Martin on stage for a song, and Martin seems to be really enjoying it.  Their hug afterwards was not exactly enthusiastic though.  Miley Cyrus was very good.   And so was Grande.  Bieber was all acoustic, so I think his two songs lacked richness.  And BEP were without Fergie.  Katy Perry's Roar was pretty good, after her Part Of Me was a bit flat.

Coldplay also performed 'Don't Look Back In Anger' with Ariana Grande

Liam Gallagher made a surprise appearance, to duet with Coldplay to perform the Oasis classic ‘Live Forever’ at the ‘One Love Manchester’ concert tonight.

Coldplay performed at the special fundraiser and tribute gig at Manchester’s Emirates Old Trafford Lancashire County Cricket Ground alongside the likes of Katy Perry, Justin Bieber, Miley Cyrus, Usher, and many more – to honour and raise money in the wake of the terror attack in which 22 people were killed and 59 injured when a lone bomber attacked the foyer of Manchester Arena after an Ariana Grande gig.

 

Despite Gallagher having frequently slammed the band, just last year comparing Chris Martin to a vicar and saying that Coldplay were ‘beyond ****‘, the former Oasis frontman put past differences aside to deliver an emotional acoustic rendition of ‘Live Forever’ backed by Martin on guitar

Well they got a minority.  But there is one party (the N. Irish DUP) with 10 seats that aligns a bit with them.
