Well, the argument there is that such an attack hasn't happened because we have such advanced weapons and  well trained and equipped forces etc.

Didn't the USA consider invading us after WW2? I'm sure the French would be all over us if let our guard down for a second wink

Don't get me wrong, I fully understand what your saying, I'll probably be voting Green myself, but I think whilst modern puppet politics still exist and big business goes around the world dicking anyone worth stealing from, I'm happy we have big clever guns, which again, I know it's a self perpetuating argument. I think the change needs to be a bit slower and other things need to change before we get rid of our nukes.

No need to get rid of things we've already paid for, especially if they're such an important player in world peace, but how can you improve on such a magnificent array of weaponry that could send civilization back to the stone age? You can't improve perfection lol

The US have invaded us, we're like their largest military base in case the east decide to attack them.

'The weapons go out of date' argument always makes me laugh, yeh, because a bomb that can wipe out quarter of the planet won't be powerful enough in 10 years time, or bullets that can pierce concrete will go off and smell rotten in a couple of years.

Hmmmm. It's less that they go off, more that they become less of a threat when your enemy has a greater technology. By your way of thinking, our troops could be using old blunderbuss's and woolen undercrackers whilst our enemy uses all kinds of lazer guided shiz and sexy as fuck body armor.

It's a race, and it's best to keep your hand in.

The last attack with advanced arms technology on British soil was? And that 'terror' enemy they keep scaring us with, would be armed with just swords if we didn't keep arming them.

Sorry, but this race bollocks is a race against ourselves, what are we preparing for alien invasion?

Spend the money on creating less work and more play I say, free energy, transport, no debt = work less hours and live a bit more, we're only here for a few years.

Trident, a submarine, for bombing another country if it decides to flatten us, which is great, we won't be around to see the rest of the world get blown up by us.

The minimum social allowance? Or whatever she calls it... is just wealth redistribution, you raise the money for this by fucking off the deficit and taxing the wealthiest, who have about £zillion more than they could ever need between them and 'trickle it down' to the poorest. I think 'trickle down economics' was the whole idea of capitalism before the stock market took over... so, that's been tried and failed.

Greens are the way forward.

so did your ears recover then?  i always kept my monitors down too.  i remember doing b2b sets with other djs where i'd have to turn the monitors way down every time i took the decks because they were screaming so loud that it hurt.

Yeh, I think so haha... but then again, I do have to say 'what?' a lot, and I can't have a conversation with anyone when there's music playing, can't hear a word, but that's probably cause i'm more interested in the tunes haha

No ringing or whooshing sounds though, they go after a day or two.

To be honest wind energy is a good idea but I'd like to see more of a push towards solar.

Changing legislation on housebuilding to force developers to put solar panels on every roof of every new build would be a massive step in the right direction.

Wouldnt be much good in this country as we dont get that much sun, but its certainly a step in the right direction

A house rooftop installation produces more than enough for a typical household, hence the feed in tariff incentive, paying off the cost of the system and putting money in your pocket.

Only my personal point of view too mate, in my opinion, do the 'none of the above' in the local elections, I do, but in the general election, i really don't fancy the prospect of 5 years of Farage or another 5 of austerity... i like what the greens are saying and they seem a bit more ethically minded than the corrupt big guns.

Cheers Matt, last hour gets a bit more full on...

Anyone else see Bez on Sky yesterday talking about Fracking.
Had to ask the reporter what the question was cos he forgot.

He also forgot to register the Reality Party in time for the general election, bless him, his heart's in the right place.

Yes please! cool

Read that wrong, Marcus, waiting for a follow up to your last effort mate!

Haha no probs, i'll keep an eye on your stuff!

Here's the full three hour mix I did for Khankra in the mix swap, who's not the easiest guy to get hold of, so it's sat on Soundcloud in private mode.

There's nothing worse than a load of pub politicians setting the country to rights.

Pub? I've got kids, I can't spend time talking politics in the pub, that's what the General Bedrock Discussion forum is for.

The new JAS podcast is mega.

Cheers mate, i expect Ben's hour will be even better. He's working hard at perfecting it by the sounds of it and by his usual standards that will be something special.

I'll have a word with Ben, you and him do it one month if you like, or maybe all three... no reason why it can't be longer than an hour. PCM radio and Innervisions just schedule them in as and when they're ready.

Who wants to read you lot harping on about elections on a music forum?? That lad asking for another forum wasn't such a bad idea was it in retrospect? First thread to go in it would be mind numbingly boring gash like this.

That or a bottomless pit forum for anyone wanting to discuss politics to jump in to.

The title 'The General Election' was a big give away, why click on a subject that you think is mind numbingly boring gash? Honestly roll

I've got Vince Cable.  What a turd that man is.

He's a good man imo.  Used to take the FCC train to work (probably still does) and is down to earth/honest - qualities rarely found in modern politicians.

As far as policy on the economy goes, what we really need is one set of people doing the right thing at the right time rather than tribal thinking about left or right.  So in the late 90's probably a bit more like the Tories now, i.e. a bit more thrift and saving.  Then when the inevitable bust came a bit more spending and stimulus like Labour in the late 90's (minus the insane projects wasting money).

What we actually end up with is Labour spending too much and Tories being too tight in a never ending cycle of perceived dislodged moantastic dullfuckery.

Totally agree with that. And all Vince Cable lacks is the charisma, which is much needed in this X Factor age of politics, the whole system is a pantomime, not how the world should be run in this day and age.

my kind of prog this Marcus. Great work mate. Haven't heard Surrounding Darkness for ages! Also good to see you are now the resident for SOG.

Cheers mate! I've been friends with Chris & Oli (SOG) for years, he used to come over for a monthly residency for my weekly slot Critical Mass at Dry Bar, in Mcr. So, a bit of favouritism may be at play and I didn't think twice when he asked me, obvs.

Might need you to do an hour for Just Add Sunshine if you're up for it? Your latest mix is awesome, perfect vibage for the podcast.

Thanks as always Jules!

inspiring leadership though.

LOL

Labour and Tory are both part of the same game, one fucks little things up so the other can rescue the situation, as a bit of bird feed to lure in the voters so they think they're in control.

For example:
Tories bring in this crazy spare bedroom tax - Labour say they'll get rid of it.
Labour give benefits out to anyone and everyone - Tories say they'll sort that out.

But the major things that really matter, like war, banks, climate change, child abuse, they're on the same team.
Labour walk us in to illegal wars - Tories walk us in to more.
Tories rape kids for decades - Labour hide their secrets.
Parliament - all parties - have just blocked a ban on fracking with 308 votes.
Both parties allow banks to hand out massive bonuses to bosses, using £billions in public money.
Neither party are worried about climate change even though more and more scientists say we're in the 11th hour.

They're both in it together, not in it for us. I'd rather have SNP than any of our biggest parties.

Well, the way I see it, only left wing voters are into this spoiled vote/don't vote idea, all right wingers are anti-immigration and anti-europe, hence the rise of UKIP and others.

So, although i agree with the idea of if you don't like their policies, don't encourage them, I think it will just make the right stronger... saying that, i agree with Green's policies, it's down to people to make it work. I'm up for change.

I sometimes think the unions flex their muscles when Labour lose a seat, I mean, it wasn't the Green Party refusing to empty your bins, it was the bin men and their unions.

As for the bus lanes, if the idea was to encourage people to use public transport... perhaps if more people did, there would be less traffic.

Local council is totally different to parliament, they've only got a budget decided by tories to work with.

Read THIS earlier today - thought it was interesting enough to share.

Personally I think some of the Green's policies are batshit mental - and I know a few BRIGHTON residents who are woefully unimpressed with their performance at Council level - but if you genuinely believe their policies are affordable and sustainable then crack on...

Brilliant article, that's exactly why i'm voting Green and I think the article touches on resolving a few of the points I made with the cabinet decided by parliament, not in-party jobs for the boys, and less shouting at each other, more co-operation.

As for a few people in Brighton being unimpressed, how many of the UK are unimpressed with the tories, lib dems and labour?

I'm not lying, i really am voting Green. And don't tell me it's a wasted vote... we're heading for a hung parliament, every vote gives each party more weight.

The problem is, every 5 years, we have a few months of auditions from 4, 5 or 6 people we don't know, spouting a load of rehearsed bullshit, they know their voters want to hear. So, the majority of the public go out and vote for a local man who wears the same colour as their favourite person they've seen in the auditions.

The winner, gets to choose his best mates, who wear the same colour, to join him round a table, to make decisions on important things, the winner decides what he thinks his mates will be good at, even though they've absolutely no relevant experience or qualification... they're just good at shouting, agreeing with him and talking shit.

Any other, less important job, requires qualifications, relevant experience and a thorough application and interview process. Elections are either fucking insane, or just a show to make us think we live in a democratic world.

I'm voting green.
