    No word of a lie, that bridge is on the way to my mums and i know i am almost at the m4 whenever i see it. It is a staple of mine and my missus journey ('give peas a chance').

    Having said that, who gives a fuck whether it has been defaced.

    Sounds like Brazil have elected a far right nut job too now. Can't confess to knowing a huge amount about him but the little I have read is pretty grim.

    John Oliver did a segment about him a couple of weeks back. Seems to be a standard right wing nutjob.

    By all accounts he comes as across as a more intelligent Trump like figure who talks of draining the swamp and in addition is as much of a cunt but seems way more competent.

    He's a racist, misogynistic, homophobic cunt, but it seems that this is a case of the President Brazil deserves, rather than wants, as he's gotten a lot of votes from people who don't like the previous left wing governments.

    He criticised the former military dictatorship for not torturing and killing enough people, in front of TV cameras he said to a woman "I won't rape you because you're not worth it"... Trump does a lot of damage, but he's also a loudmouth who only cares about his popularity, and too dumb to get anything done. Bolsonaro seems like someone with much more ideological ambition, and I suspect he will be much more successful at destroying democracy

    Yeah, that's the sum of my knowledge of him.

    People seem to want to be dictated to and trodden under foot. They've voted for this cunt in their droves.

    Well, it's one of the most corrupt places on earth with one of the highest murder rates, so you can't entirely blame them for voting for someone who has pledged to punch that out of the country.

    I don't agree with his politics in the slightest but it's the same with trump and brexit. Life sucks ass for a lot of people and the status quo is just making it slowly worse.

    Fuck it.

    I'm going to stand here on a platform of murdering anyone remotely dusky or slightly frooty. I'll be a shoo-in.

    It would be real nice though if someone could manage to be against the status quo, while also not wanting to (for example) kill all the gays. There must be a happy medium somewhere in there.

    What does the Venn diagram look like on that one? Any overlap?

    That's it.

    10+ years under the progressive left wing Workers' Party has seen crime steadily rise and numerous corruption scandals. (Though some may well have been faked/created) so what are the options?

    Vote again for the same parties and hope life gets better?

    Or vote for someone who is obviously an arsehole but might reduce the chances of getting carjacked driving your kids to school.

    Their murder rate btw.

    63,880 people were murdered across the country in 2017, That’s 175 deaths per day.

    I understand that people are frustrated, but then they elect someone who's going to make it even worse. He's got a lot of support even with poor people, but he says poor people are lazy parasites etc. and against the gun violence he plans to loosen gun laws. How on Earth is that going to help any of them?

    Same in the US, they shout "drain the swamp" and rail against corrupt politicians who all get their money from the NY financial elite or whatever. The solution? Elect someone who is that financial elite, and claim he's one of us.

    It's like when you accuse your mayor of being in bed with the mafia, and then you want to get rid of that so you elect the mafia boss himself. It's fucking daft.

    Simple.

    The workers party may have have said all the right things, had progressive thinking and noble intentions but for the last decade peoples standard of living has decreased and crime has gotten progressively worse.

    Why would they vote for another 4 years of that?

    'Bystanders could be heard mockingly saying, “Help me, help me!” and “Jump out the window!” One of them waggled a cutout of a person in a window, several of which appeared to have been coloured brown. To laughter, one person said “Stay in your flat, we are coming to get you”, an apparent reference to the stay-put policy that may have cost lives in the fire on 14 June 2017.

    Someone else can be heard saying: “That’s what happens when they don’t pay their rent.”


    Yeah...what's the big fuss?

    Exactly. I laugh at old ladies getting pushed over, the Munich air disaster and the holocaust on a regular basis.

    Fucking snowflake cucks who lost their homes should shut the fuck up whinging. They were all immigrants anyway.

    If you want people to ignore something, maybe don't film it and put it on social media.

    Who cares if someone’s got a swastika flag in their spare room eh. While we’re at it, so what if someone’s got child porn, it’s only bad if it’s shown in public, right
