UK, Ireland / Why are Brits so left-wing? [60]

It shouldn't surprise you so much if you think about it. Expats, almost of by the definition of their situation, are not going to be evenly distributed between liberal and conservatives.

generally, you're right but there are always some exceptions to the rule. I've been to many countries in my life but it hasn't changed my political views whatsoever. Actually, seeing what socialism and so called liberalism, did/does to other people, it made me dislike it even more.

I don't know, the recent polls show increasing support for pulling out of the EU, toughening immigration laws and getting tougher on crime to bring down the violent crime rates. These all seem pretty conservative stances to me.

well, then the ones (some of them) we have a pleasure to share this forum with, are either not Brits or a very chosen bunch of extreme cases of left wingers.

We're not. That's the short answer.

I can't confirm or deny any of it, never been to England yet but judging by the few of them I've met in the past, I have to agree with some of what he/she said about them (whoever wrote it).

None of the above are anything to be ashamed off. Yes, we do have racists and homophobes but they're a minority

no one says, you have to be ashamed of it. We're talking about differences, that's all.

Americans have a shock when the get first hand experience of the real world...

nah, no one is shocked, not at all. (Btw. it looks like everyone calls his country "the real world")

That's rich coming from a Yank.

not really. You guys are very self-righteous when it comes to your opinions and bitterly fight any opinions that don't match yours.

Both the Conservative (Tories) and Liberal Party (Whigs) were around long before the USA existed. Conservatism in the US can be considered radicalism to others...

it's about how we (many of us) see you politically, that's all.

Unless ofc, you have to rig the elections like you did in Florida a few years back George 'W'...

or better said, like Obama did most recently, huh? (not only in Florida)

...Get a grip... on gun control, gay rights, abortion, the death penalty and a million other issues and then come on a forum and slag off another country for being modern, civilised and liberal.

you see, AGAIN !!! You guys just can't live without telling others what to do, can you? It's your way of being liberal, LOL That's why it's next to impossible to discuss with many of you. This "it's my way or the highway" bs doesn't work. Just because we don't want to be and live like you, it doesn't mean, you gotta right to tell us how to live or behave. Respect if you want to be respected.

UK, Ireland / Why are Brits so left-wing? [60]

Deal with it? Hmm, I don't have any problems with anyone's political views as long as you guys don't try to tell me that your way of thinking and your way of life is good for me here in the US (e.g. If you don't want guns in your society, that's fine with me but don't tell me, what's good for me/us over here, this is all I'm saying).

I've found this online and since I happen to agree with some of it, I think, it's worth posting here

Why are Brits so left-wing?
Most British people I've spoken to are pretty left-wing politically. They all seem to be pro-gay rights, pro diversity, non-religious and extremely proud of their country being multicultural.

Michael Savage was banned from entering the UK about a year ago, anyone on the right in the UK is marginalized by society.

Right-wing Brits don't seem to exist, at least not in the American sense. By American standards Brits are as socialist as they come.

When I visited the UK I thought I'd like it, but I found the political correctness oppressive.

The UK technically has a "Conservative" party, but I think its an insult to conservative ideology for them to be called conservative. The Conservative party in the UK is slightly to the left of Obama.

And as for the British "Labour Party", I don't think any party like that would ever win an election in America.

Off-Topic / What Slavic language is closer to Lithuanian? [16]

What Slavic language is closer to Lithuanian?

Lithuanian is one of two living Baltic languages, along with Latvian. An earlier Baltic language, Old Prussian, was extinct by the 19th century; the other Western Baltic languages, Curonian and Sudovian, went extinct earlier.

Latvian is pretty similar but it's not Slavic. I personally don't think, there's any Slavic language that sounds like Lithuanian.

it's probably closest to Russian

not even close.

You haven`t even watched that movie , have you ? It was not about his ancestry at all . Some people were promoting Poland before Euro 2012 . Some of them were Polish . This is what the movie is all about .

OK, the topic is "Polish looks?" right? I assumed, he's trying to insinuate that RC has something to do with Poland. This video is simply off topic here, that's all.

What about Monia's pic? Will you give it a try? ;)

I saw her pic long time ago but she must have deleted it in the meantime. All I remember is that she's blond, that's all.

(correction, her pic is still on PF, just saw it)

I've seen quite a few Poles who looked just like him when I was in Poland.
I'm a little surprised the #2 is a Brit though.

your turn

It was about can British or other *natives* spot a Pole or Poles in their communities
The simple answer is yes, a lot of the time *we* can.

OK guys, isthatu2 is not quite wrong here. When you consider how many Polish guys have shaved their heads nowadays, it does make it pretty easy to determine their nationality (maybe it has changed in the meantime but a few years ago, it was a big time fashion in Poland and we all know it). Also, you guys often wear different cloth too (I'm not saying worse, just different).
