People may dislike PC, but notice how "Non PC" has become code for being deliberately offensive - usually about people who aren't there.
Hardly a glorious character trait.

In other news:
Nigel Farage, the leader of Ukip, is facing new accusations of homophobia in his party over its links with anti-gay, far-right European politicians and claims that he has backed a populist Polish priest who describes homosexual men as "sodomites".

Good point made by a commenter on CiF. The hard rightists who say we could be like Norway seem to look very like the ones who spend the oil money in the 80s and 90s. Which Norway didn't do.

They don't do irony, do they?

There is an awful lot of bollocks being thrown around in the debate about Norway. Oil money (apart from direct employment in the oil industry) has had zero effect on the Norwegian economy. The money all went into a wealth fund, which is expressly prohibited from even investing it within the country. They're terrified of boom and bust, and are generally very suspicious of pouring big money into the private sector from the state in lavish projects.

The idea that the right are now holding up one of the most socialist and egalitarian nations in the world as an example of untethered capitalism is astonishing.

I've noticed a lot of them have tried to do the same thing with Sweden in recent years. It's fair to say that Sweden has moved to the right over the last 20 years or so, but its starting point was well to the left of Britain at that time and it still remains well to the left of Britain. A Thatcherite haven it ain't.

Anyone who thinks Belgian bars only sell lager has never been in one.

He's a moron.

Census 2011:
The 2011 census showed that 36.7 per cent of Greater London's population were born outside the UK
UKIPPer:
We must take care not to become a minority in our own country, as is the case in London already, where over 50% of the population is born outside the UK

compulsory abortion when the foetus is detected as having Downs, Spina Bifida or similar syndrome which, if it is born, could render the child a burden on the state as well as on the family. CLARIFICATION TO AVOID CONFUSION AND MISREPRESENTATION: I do not, and UKIP does not, endorse any of these ideas: they are suggestions of matters for the review body to properly consider in light of the stated desire of all political parties to reduce the national debt.
Jeez! How can anyone even think of compulsory abortion?
