'a bunch of moronic thugs who need locking up.'

True. What is also true is that a greater number of 'moronic thugs who need locking up' have felt encouraged and empowered to commit a greater number of rascist crimes in the atmosphere of xenophobia that has now been unleashed. The statistics bear it out.

Since the referendum I have lost count of the number of articles and opinion pieces which have tried to portray the result itself as one big racist, hate crime.

Of course, statistically it can also be shown that we have all since taken to beating up the gay community, whenever we can find their hiding places that is. That and what seems ever increasing pressure on/from the police, urging people to report anything they perceive as a "hate crime" (like these posts?). So, I actually take the polls, supposedly showing an exponential increase in such since 24th June, with a very hefty pinch of salt. I've neither seen nor heard any of it myself, wherever I've been. Well, apart from some of the threads in here that is. :lol:

It is you that has the phobias! You know what they say about statistics?

These sort of yobs don't need a rallying call to commit these sort of offences, they just take advantage of the relative freedoms (i.e. no check points, no groups of armed police on constant patrol with a shoot first and ask questions afterwards mandate) that exist in most countries in the civilised world. It has nothing much to do with xenophobia, any race/colour/age/sex that they pick on will do .......... unless they look like they could fight back and do them damage. :roll:

But IMO, they will get away with a reprimand or maybe a token stretch in prison, whereas they should get life (Min.25 yrs) for attempted murder in the toughest jails the country can offer. :x

They are on a par with the US when it comes to financial corruption maybe, but corruption in say the civil service is mostly unheard of ....... little brown envelopes get you a prison sentence in the UK and most European countries. But I agree with you ....... financial corruption is rife and on a scale most of us could not remotely comprehend. :x

Yep, and the EU was readying itself to end this corruption and start making the tax cheats using these British tax havens cough up - which, incidentally, would provide the National Health Service with a lot of funds - perhaps even 350 million pounds a week. Could this be the real reason the right-wing press barons so shamelessly stoked up the flames of bigotry amongst the dispossessed classes to engineer a leave vote, i.e. to hang on to their ill-gotten gains?

You obviously agree that the financial system is grossly exploited and under regulated ? But come on "..... the EU was readying itself to end this corruption" is a bit rich. The EU is more corrupt in general than the financial system, as is the ECB as it is part of the same monetary system . In all their years the EU have never balanced the books and billions have disappeared without trace ...... not taking into account the fiddles that the Commissioners practice and they are just as bad as the tax cheats practices in the Banking system.

As it goes, the Tax Havens are not illegal but they are something that are of massive benefit to the seriously rich and international corporations and most of them are in UK or US territory. Banking in its operation is nothing more than an accounting system and the way it works is absolutely fraudulent ...... if you or I tried to do it we would end up in jail! :roll:

Here you go with endless lies. Golden Dawn are left-wing compared to UKIP :lol:

And are you now telling us you are only propagating Golden Dawn's policies? :P Even there, you have it all wrong. There's nothing in their foreign policy about leaving the EU, idiot! Their anti-immigration policy is purely against those illegal immigrants from outside the EU (unlike 52% of the British who hate all foreigners! :wink: ).

How can you, on the one hand, call them 'Nazi Lovers' and then, on the other hand, label them as anti-EU - surely that would be hating the supposed origins of their great love?


Your reply is what I have come to expect: long on abuse and short on substance.

Another report from Greece on a Greek Politician calling for Grexit
http://www.sigmalive.com/news/greece/418832/grexit-zitaei-o-dimitris-stratoulis

your comment about me telling you I am propagating Golden Shower policies? A straw man argument and another of YOUR lies that grossly misrepresents my position, where I have never advocated Grexit let alone given credence to Golden Shower, oops Golden Yawn, oops Golden dawn.

Perhaps you should read up on their policies which are far more than about immigration, and where I think you will find they are advocating a return to a national currency and that is Grexit, Greece leaving the Euro zone, not the EU,

read on, Little Star....

NATIONAL ECONOMY AND DEVELOPMENT
The entry of Greece into the European Union marked the dissolution of our primary sector of the economy and the complete destruction of the Greek agricultural production, craft and erstwhile mighty Greek industry. The Golden Dawn was perhaps the only voice in national orientation reacted vehemently to the entrance of the country in the common currency. Eventually the euro proved our destruction. National currency equivalent to national independence and he should be the fundamental objective of a national leadership.

However from talk elsewhere about sovereignty and removing foreign influence I think they are also looking at cutting ties with the EU ~(and climbing into bed with Russia)

As for being Nazi lovers

Nikos Michaloliakos wrote: On April 30, 1987 completed exactly forty-two years since the German Walpurgis night of April 30, 1945, when the Chief of the German Reich and visionary New Europe Adolf Hitler raised Himself in His earthly presence. [...] April 30, 1945, a bright page of modern history closes. The Great Man of the Twentieth Century, the animator and apostle of the Revolution of swastikas is dead.

and
We have no politicking purposes, nor suffer from the stress of the parliamentary presence, not looking for a place under the sun of democracy, deny democracy, we deny the principle of majority, deny policy of marketing and remain true today that we all became unfaithful, we remain faithful to the vision of National Socialist Idea.


The text concludes:
One thousand nine hundred and eighty-seven, forty two years later, then, with the thought and soul given in memory of our Great Leader, we raise the right hand up, greet the Sun and with courage, imposed on us Rate our military and our National Socialist task scream full of passion, faith in the future and our visions: HEIL HITLER!


The conclusions from their own words and that of their leader are yours to make...
