Unpaid and mandatory is literally slave labor. It's basically the definition of it.

Part of the problem people have is that the only reason the security situation is so bad is because of the Tories cutting funding to the regular military. It's going to cost 2.5 billion to implement this scheme, well wouldn't it be better to spend that money on professional soldiers, before telling everyone they have to conscript?

If conscription is still required at that point then maybe it will be tolerated, because there'll be an understanding that it's now actually necessary. As opposed to just covering up for previous governmental mismanagement.

I suppose that depends on who you are. If you're Rupert Murdoch I suspect you're quite happy with the way they voted. It's just a shame he wasn't able to get in on the PPE game

Didn't we already know that? Their voting records are public anyone can see it any time that they don't care about the environment. They even banned onshore wind farms for a while.

Oh and remove subsidies for adding solar panels because people were using the subsidies - can't have that.

all the way up to an $800 Arctryx meant for climbing K2.

Oh no now you've gotten to the area of sports coats. There are people who know way too much about sports coats and have way too much of an opinion about which one's good and which one isn't.

I swear the woman on the right in pink is my aunt. I'm sure I have a picture of her looking exactly like that.

Alcohol addiction is definitely dangerous.

Marijuana addiction tends to just be from people who lack any sort of personality and so taking drugs becomes the entirety of their personality. I'm sure you can get addicted to marijuana, but I think most people who claim to have an addiction are really just idiots with nothing better to do.

Like my roommate at university.

I think it's like Las Vegas and open container laws. It's a city ordinance that weed is allowed not a national one. And an airport is a national asset even if it is in Amsterdam.

In England you can find weed by smell. Technically it's against the law to own it but the police never do anything about it because they don't care.

Going into Russia at all is a stupid thing to do, going into Russia with literally any contraband at all is an insane thing to do.

I wouldn't attempt to go into Russia with a plastic knife just in case.

Yeah police do that. Policing by consent is all very well, but it doesn't really work if it's at the criminals consent.

Wow this is such a Norfolk thing to happen.

When you reveal a spoiler the black rectangles go away and it then renders the text in white, but on a white background (light coloured theme) The text renders is exactly the same colour as the background and so you can not see it unless you highlight the post, this renders the background of the post as light grey and there is just about enough contrast difference to now read the text.

When spoiler text is revealed it should render in the same colour as normal text. I'm not sure why it's white.

See images below for demonstration.

spoiler text is hidden

spoiler text has been revealed but is invisible

text post is highlighted and now you can see the spoiler text rendered in white
