The anti-white agenda is becoming more and more brazen. Can you imagine someone pushing something like #NBASoBlack? How long would they last?

A civilized society doesn't get rid of people without due process, and those who propose so are uncivilized !!

Terrorists aren't civilised.

A very high cost to society if the convicted’s due process is violated or it was a mistaken conviction

There is no need for due process if a terrorist has killed people and there's immutable evidence like today's events.

A high cost to society is when a terrorist is afforded a court case with a barrister and a bed, food, water, heating etc.

Death row inmates cost more to maintain than a prisoner serving a life imprisonment. The economics of the death sentence have been researched and peer reports published.

Inmates? Maintain?

They would be executed within hours of the crime. Very little cost.

@Jimizo

Yes, I would agree with that.

However, the death penatly would serve three practical purposes.

First, money wouldn't be spend on them as it would for decades in prison. The money saved could instead be used to hire multiple extra police officers. Thus, the country becomes a little bit safer.

Second, even if it deters 1% of other potential terrorists, it's a postive. That will save innocent lives.

Third, the public will feel that justice has been done.

Presumably, those wanting to re-introduce the barbaric death penalty, will be fine applying it to the white supremacists who have killed other British people and the British soldiers who murdered 13 Irish people 48 years ago in the Bogside?

Death penalty would apply to all who warrant it.

It's a shame that the police had to shoot this man.

Toasted, what on earth!?

The man had been arrested for 13 terror offences, boasted about wanting to carry out a knife or acid terror attack, tried to kill people, wounded two and was wearing a hoax suicide bomb vest.

Jimizo, the terrorist was actually being tailed by police at the time. It is suspected that he knew he was being followed and tried to carry out an attack. Thankfully, because the police were there, the casualities were minimal.

I agree with you that it has been a terrible policy to reduce police numbers and that more is part of the answer.

However, according to the police, there are 23,000 jihadi extremists on their watchlist, with 3,000 of them requiring 24-hour surveillance.

https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/huge-scale-of-terror-threat-revealed-uk-home-to-23-000-jihadists-3zvn58mhq

It takes on average 8-10 officers to monitor one suspect.

Even with 100,000 more police, this problem isn't going to be stopped. Even with this story, the police knew about the suspect, were on the scene at the time and stopped him as quickly as humanly possible, but two people still became victims.

Brexit has got nothing to do with this. Advocating sensible policies is seen as far-right by you for some reason.

Agreed. Lack of police did not cause this.

If someone has been arrested for terrorism related offences and they have dual citizenship, they should have their British citizenship stripped from them and then automatic deportation.

If they only have British citizenship. Prison with no release.

If they have killed people through terrorism. Hanging.

Posted in: Brexit: Day 1 brings talk of EU unity with trade talks ahead See in context

Wipeout, any prediction/estimation/report put together by an anti-Brexit Theresa May cabinet, or any Conservative government for that matter does not a trustworthy document make.

About 15% of the doom prophecies will come to pass. A two-week iconvenience at most. The rest you can ignore. Food is not going to run out at the supermarket, thousands of companies will not leave London.

The sad thing is that when none this happens, all of the MPs, remainers and even some posters on this site will suddenly suffer from collective amnesia about the doom mongering. Won't be forgotten by everyone else, though.

It won't cost much to Unite Ireland. If it annoys a few King Billy flag wavers, so what?

That's the type of language that means you're willing to ignore the democratic, peaceful process to get what you want. That's the type of language which will lead to a return of The Troubles.

Again, you are going to create the problem.

Toasted, I think you've made your position clear. You believe that Ireland must be united at all costs, regardless of what the people of Northern Ireland feel.

Posted in: Brexit: Day 1 brings talk of EU unity with trade talks ahead See in context

So even if Northern Ireland doesn't vote for unification in such a situation, it would happen anyway?

Posted in: Brexit: Day 1 brings talk of EU unity with trade talks ahead See in context

Toasted, you avoided my question. You said the following before:

Northern Ireland, aka, the 6 counties, or even the occupied 6 counties is Ireland.

One entity, despite the partition.

It is up to the people of Ireland. The 32 counties.

So what would happen if the Republic of Ireland votes in favour of unification, but Northern Ireland votes in favour of remaining in the UK?

Posted in: Brexit: Day 1 brings talk of EU unity with trade talks ahead See in context

Must say that I am relieved that medicines are still available in the UK the day after Brexit. Oh and the that there are still flights between the UK and EU. Food is still available at the supermarket too!

Now there'll be people chiming in with "But that's not going to happen until after the trade talks have concluded! Just you wait! Food prices will skyrocket, thousands of companies will leave London and house prices will crash!"

It's interesting that the original prophecy of doom was projected for "the day after a leave vote". Then it became "the day after Brexit". Now it's "the real day after Brexit, which will be when the trade talks finish!"

So if in a referendum, the majority of the Republic of Ireland voted in favour of unification, but in Northern Ireland the majority voted to remain in the UK, what would happen?

The EU has been good to Ireland and the GFA gave us a generation of peace. We hope for a peaceful and inclusive unification.

Good. As I said, it is up to the people of Northern Ireland.

Yep, but as I said, it's up to the people of Northern Ireland, not you, not me.

Give us freedom.

I think it's only fair that the people of Northern Ireland should have a vote on independence IF they wish to have one.

It is not your place to demand one, Toasted. When you say "us", it's disingenuous as you are not from Northern Ireland.

Posted in: After Brexit: UK leaves EU but what's next far from certain See in context

Voted leave in 2016, and on the day of the result, I thought that it was certain that remain had won. I was astounded that the result was for leave. Three and a half years later, I am almost equally shocked that Brexit has been allowed to happen by an establishment that is thoroughly opposed to it.

Whether you support or oppose Brexit, this is the most important event in British history since the end of the Second World War. I am sure that in the future, the 23rd June 2016 will be seen as the day that the tide turned against globalism.

If Northern Ireland and Scotland want to have their own referendums on UK independence, I support their decision to do so.

@CrazyJoe

I noticed that you listed the following:

Under Brexit Britain will be smaller, whiter, older, less powerful internationally, less prosperous, less relevant, and provide fewer social services.

May I ask why "whiter" is a bad thing? Does it matter what percentage of the country is white?

@starpunk

There's been Black Brits for a long long time. Many are descended from former colonies in Africa and the Caribbean. Singers Sade and Seal are Black Brits. Also, during the American Revolution black slaves were promised freedom if they joined the Royal British Army. After the war they were taken to Britain where they lived the rest of their lives as free men.

You are entirely correct. I don't disagree with you. I think however, you haven't realised that I am talking about ethnicity.

Black British:

British nationality - Yes

British civic identity - Yes

British passport - Yes

Ethnically British - No

It is not possible to change one's ethnicity. For example, a Nepalese man cannot change his ethnicity into Japanese.

Alfie, I know in your mind set that supporting some things that Farage says equates to life-long devotion to UKIP.

Why do you ascribe everything you don't like to the "far-right"? It must be hard work being so stressed about everything all the time. You sound like you are in a constant state of alarm. It is a form of hysteria.

@wtfjapan

A black person born and raised in Britain and who has known only British culture is just as British as any white person of similar upbringing.

"As British" is a civic sense, yes. In an ethnic sense, no. It would be like saying:

A white person born and raised in Japan and who has known only Japanese culture is just as Japanese as any asian person of similar upbringing.

(Asian also doesn't automatically means Japanese, just as "white" doesn't automatically mean British)

Goodness me, Alfie.

I have no interest in UKIP or the BNP. Aren't both defunct anyway?

I said black people cannot be ethnically British in the same way that white people cannot be Japanese. Of course black people can have British nationality. You aren't satisfied with that though.

You are a little hysterical sometimes.

Meghan received an unfair amount of criticism. 

However, she doesn't help herself.

The UK is also one of the least racist countries in the world.
