Whenever someone (in this case zxcvbnm-[of all people!]) beats you to the punch on the Guardian's most hand-wringing story?
While many others work hard and struggle to pay for their housing too.
What's your point, Dr Leo Spaceman?
A lot of things in life aren't fair. Maybe someone has spent year and years doing a house up, only for some scummy twat to come in and poo everywhere. And then when you kick him out, you're the bad guy apparently.
tells you she thinks of you only as a friend and then massively gets off with the pooing squatter
that is worse.
Oh well, i hope you get over her. She sounds like a massively ungrateful cunt and you're better of without her.
No idea what you mean. Just because that guy used to be best friends with someone who turned out to be a massive cunt, it doesn't have any bearing on my life.
and squatting was as socially acceptable as working to pay rent/mortgage then that might be somewhere approaching true. But no.
Shame he doesn't give a shit.
is it fair that there are empty houses when there are people with nowhere to live?
but no, homelessness when there are empty homes around is... not nice
I'm pretty sure we accept they've got to live somewhere.
do they always seem to belong to some art collective or some load of old toss like that?
No need to answer.
about what you should do with your time. plus people often overestimate their own creativity.
And they immediately started fucking the street up in every way they could. Graffiti all over the outside of the building, smashed glass and rubbish all over the street, noise literally 24 hours a day. They actually went out of their way to make things shit.
"but they're not all like that", yeah blah blah don't care. Squatters can fuck off.
poor effort, I know it's Friday but still.
It's that of Labour's Shadow Business Secretary, Chuka Umunna MP.
Well I was almost duped into losing my lefty cred!!! Come on, who else fell for it...
that means you've turned tory now!
Boy is my face red (blue).
coaxed into a snafu!
popularity in taking that stance.
Diane Abbot was another arse.....she likes being homeless, because it gives amunition.
Its a bollocks thing to say, said by selfinsh people to appeal to the selfishness in others
I mean surely most of the people working hard and struggling to pay for their housing occasionally think, at least wishfully/fancifully, that they should be allowed to live for free?
don't work hard and don't struggle to pay for their housing.
that you use to say "hmmm, interesting" after every supposition in real life.
do people find out about flats to squat in anyway? Is there a messageboard?>
and leaves it there a while and if it's still intact then she goes for it(not sure how long she leaves it there for though and not sure what makes her suspect a house is empty)

that it is better for everyone to live equally shit lives, than have any kind of 'inequality'.
think that "race to the bottom" is a Tory ideology.
I’ve been to a few squat parties, last time I got a stain on my favourite suit which cost a fortune in dry cleaning bills to get out, so I do admit squats do have some problems.
So as kitchmo says, it's basically victimless.
Maybe the problem is not enough squatters.
it helps to prevent under/non utilisation of valuble fixed assets, by presenting a threat of confiscation to property owners. If anything squatting should be *easier*.
Just like a filthy left winger like CG or Chuka Umunna to want to prevent the market from working efficiently.
He was saying that he is able to pick the locks of the houses he goes into and that it is all legal. He said he is currently in three houses in Merrion Square. This can't be right. He also offered me some strange liquid from a bottle that ended up being poitín.
but where do you stand on the original position argument? Also, would you agree with the statement that, today, all citizens are born into and enter society on equal and fair terms?
in the context of your question.
I guess its a pretty ridiculous question to ask on friday at 1.30 on drowned in sound though.
People's upbringing and background has a massive effect on their prospects in life.
upbringing, gained by their forebears working hard to harness the efforts of other people working hard so that much of the many people working hard going to providing some of their earnings to someone who is rich. or even by pure slavery or robbery/grabbing/snatching and depriving others of their own ways of making a living. :D which makes the sort of comment in the OP incredibly funny really
But I just came to say that remember the squatters in Corrie? Was it Les and Janice? Or Spider? Either way, that was a golden age for Cporrie
so it is indicative of stupidity or malevelance that someone would put them in the same sentence to try to link them in the minds of the audience of your words, an audience that the originator of such a sentence, must think are stupid and incapable of logical thought......i.e. the electorate (actually the originator is probably right in his appraisal of the electorate)
