    ive smoked a fair amounts of cigarettes - one of my friends from high school is now a chain smoker and i usually smoke a ton when im with him. also i bum cigarettes off people sometimes when im drunk. ive never really had cravings though and ive never bought a pack on my own, even though i very much enjoy the occasional smoke.

    I roll cigarettes. I start for a month and stop for a month: it seems like a never-ending cycle. My plan is to fritter it down to only social smoking but I've never managed to achieve that without full-on starting again.

    sup hicky i paid a lot of attention to the latest UK elections. the labour party is shitty and no one should ever vote for them. disappointing outcome, i wanted UKIP to do better to shake things up and at least hopefully stick one to the EU.

    They did very well, they just only got 1 MP. In my constituency Labour won with 42% and UKIP came second with 32% of the vote. That really isn't bad for a party everyone calls a fringe party. Though they're on the decline now.

    The Labour party is shitty but there's talk it could move more to the left now, or at least be given chance to. This guy is running: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jeremy_Corbyn. He won't win but he might come second or something, which would be a shock to the Labour party as it is now. Especially since non-Labour party members can vote for a fee.

    The closest UK party that's near where I scored on that Political Compass test a few months back was the Green Party, and I don't know if that party's even that good

    They don't do that great. Although they do have one MP. Having an MP is an important thing since it has mostly only been Labour, Liberal and Conservative who have ever been MPs.

    the labour party are all blairite neoliberals, miliband's campaign was a joke. agree with everything your opponent says bad about you, great strategy can't believe they lost. but they don't have much ground to stand on when labour is as responsible as anyone for deregulating finance.

    at least this was funny

    the green party is alright but their leader was always by far the worst speaker in the debates and stuff.

    The Labour party is huge. They're not all Blairite neo-liberals, it's just the prevailing tone and it's reversible.

    UK politics is boring. And unbelievably homogenous and lacks any kind of dynamism or actual debate, just people hammering on about deficits. Although there is an EU referendum next year.

    uk politics is WAY more interesting than american politics. its not so bad really, you have UKIP as a viable alternative even though its results aren't great and the greens are at least on the radar. plus the scotland thing. policy is generally more open than in the US too. American politics are the just the worst. the deficit hysteria was mad though. EVERYTHING the mainstream media said about the deficits and the economic crises were WRONG WRONG WRONG. read this guys blog: http://mainlymacro.blogspot.com/

    french politics are looking interesting thanks to the FN, though not too interesting because le pen almost certainly wont actually win the presidency. spanish politics are alright too now though i can't follow it too well because my spanish isnt great yet.

    and hicky you better vote to get out of the eu u cunt.

    I am voting to leave the EU, but I am just a tad worried that voting to leave the EU will fuel the Tories, since it's their specific project and it's difficult for the Left to hijack it

    Canada has an election coming up in October. You guys should read up on that so we can all talk about how much Tim should hate Stephen Harper

    it should be easy for the left to hijack the idea of wanting to leave a globalist neoliberal institution that is currently destroying greece and other countires in the name of austerity.

    the problem with the establishment left is they don't really care about economic policy any more and its just a club for bourgeois social "progressives" so labour voters see EU as more integration and immigration and they have to love it. if an explicitly economically left-wing anti-EU party came along advocating sharply reduced immigration i think they would dominate the electoral landscape.
