Re: NVA Social Pages - Instagram, Twitter, Facebook

Paul, the campaign is fine.
It’s obviously humourous, and entirely in keeping with modern advertising styles.

Re: Taking the piss out of politics

I think one doesn’t go far wrong if one gives oxygen to the voices of attacked humans themselves. The new technologies and media give a mouthpiece to those who wish to spread the old “us and them” narratives, but those same technologies and media can also give voice to the maligned themselves. A voi...

Re: Taking the piss out of politics

How best to counter and combat deliberately inflammatory statements without giving them oxygen?

Starve trolls like Hopkins.
They feed on attention and outrage.

Re: Taking the piss out of politics

I know, mate. With a large majority, though, Johnson has the ability not to pander to the ERG. We will soon know just how hard or soft a leaver he is ... I agree. Counter-intuitively, the size of the Tory majority is the one crumb of comfort for those wanting British politics to return to the centr...

Re: Linn - is the end near?

It was a lot quicker than typing something like "Yes, I agree, we should be concerned about people losing their job rather than grinding old, rusty axes." However, you've now made me type it anyway. :mrgreen: Like the 100 odd people that lost their jobs working for NVA in the 1990's because it wasn...

Re: Taking the piss out of politics

My wife bought a scatter cushion for the sofa in the front room a month ago. Really excited about it she was. It’d been made to look great in the shop window. Turned out it didn’t go with our sofa. Or the carpet. Or the curtains. Or the lampshade. Or the wallpaper. Or her clothes. The dissonance was...

Re: Taking the piss out of politics

Emotional based decision making is the de facto mode of operating. Maybe, but science, engineering, the military and most companies have created perfectly good processes to prevent that. Its not too much to ask that we run our country in the same way. Well said. And I think processes need not actua...
