yes there is the" nice mix of cultures" (restaurants, chinatown etc) thing which does make london such a great place to live but those who despise OUR way of life OUR attitudes and tolerance OUR liberal society yet choose to come and live here strike me as a problem. if i chose to move to the usa i would be buying into all it stands for by making my choice to live there...i couldnt imagine wanting to live somewhere and then spend my days living a life that contradicts the basic fundamentals of that society

I think there should be a ban on any face covering in public whether it be a burka, balaclava or a plastic bag.
As I mentioned before the only beef I have with Simon Hughes is he tries too hard to be all things to everyone. He still gets my vote though.

Cant answer your question, phoney, because I live half here and half there, have two passports, dual citizenship etc. If there were a quarrel I hope I'd take the right side! But fact is: in England I speak English and in Israel I speak Hebrew. In England I live a very English life, in Israel a totally Israeli one. I dont expect everyone in England to speak Hebrew and to observe kashrut. I dont expect everyone in Israel to speak English and provide me fish and chips. When in Rome....

I really, really want to respect and vote for Simon Hughes.
But, after watching his cringeworthy sucking-up YouTube video again I just can't.

Whilst he's cringingly patronising to his audience, I don't really see what's wrong with his message

'we want you to come forward and be part of that political leadership in this country.'

I was looking down my postal ballot paper this afternoon, unable to find a UKIP candidate, so I called the number on the Conservative candidate's flyer (07500 582126) to ask a couple of questions in case I could bring myself to vote for her in spite of my disgust with Cameron's broken promise on an EU referendum. Loanna Morrison herself answered and by great co-incidence was canvassing almost outside my flat. So we met for a chat and I must report how much I like and respect her. She's appears to have a terrific character and be motivated by public service. Contrast her with Simon Hughes - that guy's never done anything except politics in which he's lied about his own homosexuality, slimed his homosexual opponent (the principled Peter Tatchell, tho I disagree with much of what he says, I respect him) and now Hughes grovels to Islam. Loanna Morrison is 52 with a broadband experience of real life.

And as an extra bonus she's a local coloured businesswoman who has NOT been parachuted in.

Loanna Morrison is in the party that wants to bring back animal cruelty for pleasure so she won't be getting my vote.

Beetroot, in the pile of Hom Sap's cruelty to other animals, foxhunting is a tiny pebble. None of the parties gives a toss about animal cruelty else they'd abolish factory farming and vivisection. Anyway hunters and shooters in this country are more humane to other animals than urban socialists despite the jejune image of hunting assumed by class warriors. I write as someone persuaded by the "The Moral Status of Animals" by Stephen Clarke.

Here's London-se1's interview with Loanna Morrison. The contrast with Simon Hughes is as stark as can be.....a real person versus a lifetime politico.
