I've just joined the forum today and am from the UK, i'm certainly interested in politics and am left leaning and happy to be called a socialist although I think the word actually covers a much wider range of thought than most would give credit to, and I certainly recognise it has a much more radical meaning in America than perhaps it does in the UK.

For isntance conservative politicians aren't trying to end Social Security, or Medicare. What they're doing is fighting for the acceptance of the economic realities associated with those programs.

What about Fred? he was hardly a left winger.
I think the politics section more or less died after Stalfos tried to take it over.....

For the most part this forum has instead been dominated by we Americans , mostly right wing Americans too with liberal & informed moi being the exception .
Wud hope to see more posts about British and European matters .

DanMc wrote:Fred expressed some rather nasty sentiments, but fundamentally he was a wind-up artist who delighted in outraging others, doubtless including me. Unlike the real hardline right-wing nutters he did show a sense of humour from time to time. I think the reason he drifted away in the end was that people were almost starting to like him and he wasn't here for that, he wanted to shock and outrage what he would have called "liberals".
