Racists, fascist tendencies, authoritarian, misogynist, homophobic, pro-violence, narcissistic, egotistical, abusive, dishonest and immature in political debate.
And in other places too around the globe, extremist right-wing politics and fascism seems to be on the rise. Why? How has the human race allowed this creeping cancer to rise up again, after the lessons of the 1930's and 1940's?
Will today's (12th Dec 2019) election in the UK make a start in halting this evil tide? It won't be easy. 95% of the UK printed press (Daily Mail, Daily Express, The Sun, Daily Telegraph (known as the 'Daily Torygraph' due to its slavish devotion to the Tory Party), The Times) are printing propaganda which supports the Conservative (Tory) Party. Those so-called 'newspapers' are owned by just a few billionaires who care for nobody but themselves.
On TV, the BBC and Sky are also supporting the Tories. There are daily calls for the BBC's political correspondent Laura Kuenssberg to be sacked, due to her embarrassingly obvious anti-Labour bias. She has even been reported to the London Metropolitan Police in the last couple of days for revealing information about postal votes which is not supposed to be known before election day. Many other BBC reporters push the pro-Tory line. Sky has tried to narrow this election down to just one topic - Brexit. This fits in with the Tory agenda, and takes attention away from all of the social problems caused by Tory austerity measures over the last ten years.
Britain currently has charity-run food banks which are in regular use, even by people who have a job! Nurses working in the UK NHS sometimes need to use food banks. Currently, there are estimated to be four million children in the UK growing up in poverty. Homeless people can be seen sleeping in the streets in every town and city in the UK, yes even my fairly small town. In the last ten days alone, three homeless people have died of hypothermia in the UK due to sleeping on the streets in sub-zero temperatures. Due to the xenophobic and racist nature of the Brexit debate, Hate Crime in Britain is running at record levels. 47% of Hate Crimes in the UK are targetted at Muslims. This is not helped by Boris Johnson abusing Muslim women in traditional garb as looking like "letterboxes" and "bank robbers". Muslims are regularly discriminated against by the Tory government.
If there's anyone out there reading this from the UK, I hope that voting for Jeremy Corbyn and the Labour Party can stop this tide. Turn Britain back into a human nation once again, where disabled people are not abused and left penniless by being told "you're fit for work - get a job or starve". Where people of all types can live without fear in our multi-racial society. Where everyone gets the chance to have a roof over their head. Where Britain's international policies no longer put the interests of the United States and Israel joint first above all others. Where Britain's TV channels, cinema screens and music charts are not dominated by American propagandist .
Please, if you're reading this in the UK and you haven't voted yet: PLEASE VOTE LABOUR FOR A BETTER BRITAIN!

The programme they use for online races is called Discord. I believe it can also be used on a PC too.
Now I know we have Vroc and Igor for GPL,but would Discord be a good idea and a possible fit and would it work for an updated GPL online 🤔
What I like about it is, it as live chat room features, games and news rooms, banter rooms and a way to create invites for races as well as seasons and leagues.
What are people's thoughts. All feedback welcome 😁🤭

I would like to have some help regarding connection problems. I participate in some GPL Brasil races but I frequently loose the connection during the races. I am located in Europe (Portugal). I noticed in my IGOR main panel that the ping value for this server, in the "Ping" column, is very different when compared with the values of the other servers (see screenshot attached). It's 9999. Is this normal? Could this number be related with the connection problems that I experience with this server? If yes, is there anything that can be done?
Thank you very much, everybody.
