For me it would be,
I hate free trade and trading policies with the third world in general.
I hate religion influencing politicians and rednecks.
I hate political correctness stopping me from expressing myself, [damn jews...........] [sarcasm]
The U.k not integrating with the E.U fully. i.e using euro doing international bachs.
Rednecks in government who want lax gun laws, why do you think there so many school shootings in America but not in Japan?

EU costing us a bomb and has very little benefits to us unless you go abroad.
Conservatives and their populaity- David Cameron is a absloute idiot
Fair trade - in Britian and overseas
Population growth - the floods this summer was worse enough and it's gonna get worse.
Global attitudes on global warming.
Iraq - give them democracy, sort them and leave before you do any more damage.

the school shootings have nothing to do with lax gun laws, it has to do with dumbass parents who leave their weapons in places easily accessible

That's a quite a good point, I may rethink my view.

Reducing emissions, more buses/trains and less cars/airplanes, putting limits to free trade and opening for fair trade, getting USA out of Iraq/Afghanistan, stop treating islam like it's made out of china, religion out of politics, women's (and men's) rights for equal treatment, immigrant integration and anti-racism, getting out of EU and EEC, better support for the poor, better (governmental) healthcare, making life harder for rich people making money out of letting other people work for them...
I'm a communist. Really.

I'm sick of people asking me if I'm serious.

Yes. I am very serious.
The issue hits very close to home. There is a lot of unfair discrimination going on, and transgenders are missing out on overall health protection.

Social democracy and social justice i think needs a bigger part in government policy. It is especially needed in the US, they bash the NHS for it not being as good as healthcare in the US but at least EVERYONE has the ability to get treated, unlike the 40%? (cant remember the correct number) of americans who go without healthcare.

Generally there needs to be more regulation on big businesses, stop businesses influencing governments.

drug laws, cannabis should be legal as anybody with half a brain who knows the facts will have realised.

as for the rest of the drug laws, maybe tighten then up, except alcohol, mushrooms maybe.

Mass idiocy in government.
Tuition fees and the other money problems facing students and post-graduates.
Public transport. The government seem to think that the way to make public transport popular is to make car travel very slightly worse than they are making public transport.

I care about gay marriage. If atheists can get married in a church, why can't homosexuals?

Plus how well the Tories are doing. I don't want David Cameron running the country. Gordon's like an autistic teddy bear that needs to be cuddled, Cameron's just a twat. I don't take politics very seriously.

because a lot of religions already allowed interfaith marriages. some of those same churches don't support homosexual marriages though because it is seen as a sacrament or bond between a man and a woman.

I actually don't know much about British politics. I was mostly hinting at the beginning of the socialist movement and the rise of communism.

Unless of course you already knew that and your joke went way over my head.

Despite the fact that most of the opposition roots from evangelism, marriage is a ceremony of the church. Therefore, I don't believe they should be able to be married, but under a civil union.

Ahh yes, as only religious people have ever had marriage. Atheists can get married, agnostics can get married, people got married before any of the modern religions existed, people who worship forest spirits can get married, yet people who may well be Christian but happen to be gay can't?

Hardly fair.

Wrong. The Church has their own "sacrament of Marriage", but it is completely separate from the legal aspect of marriage, which is essentially a contract.
Oh Shit!

I care about lots, but one that always gets me going at the moment is Scots and Scotland, when they have a say in what happends in england but we have no say up there, and all out taxes seem to pay for their heroin addictions. and why are there so many of them in england if they hate us so much, go take your independence and become a 3rd world country.

no. church law and regular law or different. within the catholic church the sacrament of marriage is:

In Roman Catholicism, marriage, as instituted by God, is a faithful, exclusive, lifelong union of a man and a woman joined in an intimate community of life and love. They commit themselves completely to each other and to the wondrous responsibility of bringing children into the world and caring for them. The call to marriage is woven deeply into the human spirit. Man and woman are equal. However, as created, they are different from but made for each other. This complementarity, including sexual difference, draws them together in a mutually loving union that should be always open to the procreation of children.


it's in the very definition of marriage that it must be a man and a woman. so off the bat, there cannot be a legitimate homosexual catholic marriage. as for atheists, two atheists obviously cannot be married in a catholic church. that would be stupid. if one is an atheist and the other is a catholic, this is ok, with one rule: the atheist must be aware the catholic is obligated to raise the children in the catholic church. that's it.

edit: and i only talk about the CC for two reasons:

1. mainline protestant religions do not have a sacrament of marriage and it is not a church thing typically, although they may have a nice ceremony, it's not a huge deal. on top of that, more and more are beginning to adjust for it and sanction it.

2. it's what i know.

Yes but atheists can pretend to be christians, but if the church finds out its a gay couple theres no fooling none.

The only good thing about the BNP is that they will completely stop immigration.
