Would never vote Labour, women not do have a lady sausage, and men should not be using ladies toilets.

Labour are encouraging, supporting and promoting these perverse things.

Vote Reform UK and get the woke thrown out of the door before it is too late.

Never mind whether people have homes. can afford to heat them, afford to feed their families, have schools to educate their children, a health service to look after them all and police to keep them safe. As long as you can argue over who uses which toilets none of the rest matters, does it? Get a grip.

Well John,.. we wouldn’t want anyone different would we…

I’m sure you’d like to get rid of everyone who doesn’t conform to your idea of normality….

Wasn’t that Hitlers ideology…??
that our deservedly commemorated soldiers fought so hard to rid the world of 80 years ago…

Both of you who disagree with me ~
Imagine back when you were a small girl and you went into a public ladies toilet and it was filled with men who said they were women. How safe would you feel in there.?
Is that your idea of normality and would you feel safe to let your young family members use the ladies toilets under Labour.?

Imagine if you were locked up in a woman’s prison for not paying your council tax and you had to share a cell with a violent man because he said he was a woman.
Is that your idea of normality.?

Voting for Labour is like changing your tie after you have shat your pants, it does not matter what their other policies are, nobody wants them in power while they endanger females.

Public ladies toilets “filled with men who said they were women”??

Filled!?

All of them?

You lost your argument with that single line.

“ladies toilet… filled with men who said they were women”..
Oh John.. you do exaggerate excessively….
There are very few of them, & a tiny minority of those, may be have ulterior motives…it’s not as if you’ll be queuing out of the door, because of all the men in dresses….
None of us want any harm to come to children, or women, and I agree that there are some situations where consideration to biological sex should be considered, but you really are blowing this up out of all proportion…
You do seem rather obsessed about it….(Why??)

I’m not obsessed by it, this is the first time I have mentioned it, the election is coming up, Labour say that women can have a lady sausage which is wrong. They will be pushing this on society.
Biological women and normal men are disgusted by it and understandably say that women need safety.

Brig bother when I said filled you know exactly what I mean, there are a couple of cubicles in public toilets.

Nigel Farage spoke out and said that he knew that women can not have a lady sausage.

He deserves a vote just for that, plus reporting on the illegal immigrants coming over.

Over 300 came over by boat during the D-day celebrations and are let in, yet our boys paratrooped into France and had to show passports.

You have a strange obsession here and a florid turn of phrase. If this is your sole reason for voting for a bunch of deluded gammons, you are one very sad individual. And I am neither woke or a leftie before you resort to your stock in trade.

Well, you have certainly rattled the cages of many lefties on here! My congratulations.
Their arguments for supporting the ‘nonces’ are weak at best.
In a week where we celebrated many thousands of true men and quite a few women for that matter, to walk into a certain supermarket the next day and be confronted by a mass of pride flags I felt was disgusting and disrespectful.
They did not give their lives for our great country to become the cesspit of humanity that it is fast approaching.
I shall be voting reform, we need to change direction from the leftist agenda we are having forced upon us!!

Lets make a good start by disregarding the 5 candidates representing the “(address withheld)” party.

They’re only withholding their addresses to reduce the chance of they or their families being attacked or their homes damaged by idiots, of whom there is no shortage as demonstrated by other posts on this channel.
