Home of the web’s best political conversation

If you’re experiencing a lack of Rapid Eye Movement why not relax, and converse into the night on the day’s events in PB NightHawks.

To all your lurkers, why not delurk? If you delurk, you won’t be saying, It’s the End of the World as We Know It, you’ll become Shiny Happy People.

The round up of recent events (click on the links below, and it will bring up the relevant link)

  1. Ukip faces question about its far-right friends in Europe. Party belongs to Europe for Freedom and Democracy grouping, which has MEPs with extreme views and uses anti-Islam rhetoric
  2. Nick Clegg v Nigel Farage? The Ukip leader must be licking his lips. The Lib Dem leader embodies everything Ukip voters take against. Only Clegg could pick himself as the man to turn them round
