The Falkland Islands are making the round of British political parties conferences, and in a big way. It has been the Islands’ policy to attend these conferences to put their views across and to keep in touch with the political system and UK public opinion, their most effective support to ensure Falklands' self determination.

    At the Labour Party conference? Waste of time as there won't be a Labour Party when the next General Election comes along!

    Anyway, Corbin and his lot are likely to hand the Islands over to Argentina in the event they ever get into power.

    I don't think the electorate would stand for that, it would soon be a non existent party, time will tell if Labour exists in a few years from now, Marxists running the show.So they say.

    “Labour is holding their annual conference in Liverpool ”

    The scallywags and the commies together, now that has to be a match made in hell as the old saying goes (from an atheist).

    Heaven & Hell as we are taught don't exist, Chris.
    lts part of the lies spun by Priests in the Middle Ages, to keep the Peasants in line.

    I watched an interview with Corbyn after the conference with Laura Keunsburg and he couldn't even say the word immigration or talk about numbers. Therein lies his problem because that is the number one issue of concern to the people he hopes will vote for him. UKIP will be the opposition in Westminster in 2020.

    @4 Isolde

    He(@3) has already told us on many occasions on these threads that he is an atheist - he does't need reminding! He bores enough about it already!

    @6 gordo1,
    l believe in a Supreme Being & the Spirits of Nature, but l reject organised religion.
    Organised religion has changed many aspects of Christianity just to suit the ones in power.
    Jesus never advocated churches, or bishops & priests.
    He said that men(& women!)worship within themselves.
    As we do in Wicca.
    Chris is free to believe what he likes & if he does no evil, then there is no harm done with him not believing.
    He will not be punished for that.
    Peace.

    @ 7 Isolde

    Well said but Fathead cannot resist pushing 'The True Faith' whenever he has chance: “He bores enough about it already!”

    Such a pity it is the opposite. :o)

    (4) & (7) Contradicting ourselves a bit, dahling...?

    “Heaven & Hell as we are taught don't exist”..., you say...

    “Chris is free to believe what he likes & if he does no evil, then there is no harm done with him not believing. He will not be punished for that.”... you say...

    I ask...:
    1) What is “evil”
    2) How does an evil-doer get punished in Wicca-world?
    3) Are you doing no evil when standing for the interests of your Country and People?
    4) Am I doing evil when standing for the interests of me Country and People?

    Well, l wrote a great reply to you Herr Think, but it seems to have disappeared.
    Couldn't be bothered to go through all that again.
    Suffice to say Thinkums, you judge yourself on what you know to be right & wrong, good & evil.
    lndeed, Heaven & Hell as we are taught, just do not exist.
    Heaven & Hell can be here on earth.
    How would you describe the existence of someone living on the streets in Calcutta or living on Smoky Mountain, in Manila? Would that be close to Hell on Earth?
    An evil-doer has to make amends & you are your judge.
    For example a person who abused Gay people, will most likely be born again, Gay.
    With your qualifications Herr Think, you probably have a good chance of being born British, next time around, lol! snigger.
    l don't want to come back, but l probably will have no say in it, & with my views may be born into the Cairo slums.
    lf the interests of your country are wrong, & you know they are wrong, yet you still do questionable things for your country(well thats your excuse), then yes you are doing evil.
    For example, as regards the Falklands, Argentina is in the wrong.
    So if you, Think, take up arms for Argentina, against the Falklands, then you ARE doing evil.
    Answer your questions, Cher Think?
