    My attitude is that it's not the responsibility of my country to tell other countries what their population policy should be, but also it's not the responsibility of my country to take in people from other countries whose population policy has created a population that is too large for that country to look after.

    Well said Mr Attenborough. It's so obvious when we look at nature that over-population of any species causes more competition for resources. Smaller populations, as long as there are enough to ensure viable breeding, always benefit the living members of the species and their offspring. The only creatures that benefit from over-population of a given species are those that prey on them or parasites that live off them. We see it throughout human history. The average person benefited after major population culls as living costs fell and their labour was worth comparatively more. The plague and black death benefited the peasant farmers. The post war period was one of incredible opportunity and increased living standards. Low birthrates in the west should have been accepted for what they are, a natural, violence and disease free reduction of the population to re-align with natural resources. Technology and human ingenuity are all we ever really needed to cope with the temporary demographic fluctuations caused by ageing populations. Ultimately it's our economic system, which demands constant exponential growth in everything, that has created the problems we have today. More growth is not the solution to too much growth.

    He's one of the few people in a position where the mob will listen and not call him a Nazi and "literally worse than Hitler". Refreshing to hear in a time where everyone pats themselves on the back for using less drinking straws while simultaneously deciding which new ipad to buy and where to go on an overseas holiday this year to a purpose built resort recently carved out of virgin coastline.

    No need.. just free access to contraception and tax incentives for people with small families. Globally. Forget the Paris accord.. this is what the world really needs agreement on. The Chinese had the right idea.. they were just a bit heavy handed about it. [/Soapbox]

    It was in the Tory manifesto, the plebs' property will be taken to pay for their old age NHS care after they die. Maybot had to drop it as it was toxic and would lose votes, but they will bring it back in the future. The aboration of the plebs owning property that started after the war has been reversed now and needs more work. The young have already been priced out and the NHS charge on their parents' property will stop them inheriting, The masses should really only be allowed to rent as then their generated weatlth can be easily taken by the land owners. The chancers who have benefited from BTL are being hit with s24 and the older BTL will at some point be hit with a 'windfall property tax'. It will take a while but property ownership (land) will be back n the hands of the 'deserving' in a few decades. That is the problem with wars, the plebs can get stuff that they are not really entitled too. Same with populations when they fall (black plague etc wages rose and the rich got poorer) so better to have mass immigration to push down wages which makes sure the rich get richer.We live in a democracy controlled by the 1066 French invaders families ... as May say 'Nothing has changed, nothing has changed.'

    Another reason why this article of clothing should be banned from public places, it is being used as cover for terrorists and fugitives. Feel free to wear one in your home and on private property.

    From the 1950s to about the 1980s or so, over-population was a major concern - then at some point, there seemed to be a change in opinion whereby over-population wasn't the problem, it was 'man made global warming'. Never mind the fact that if the global warming believers are true, the fewer people there are, the less man made global warming there would be. It's the same with the Islamification of Europe - it's a symptom of overpopulation. It all comes down in the end to too many people being born, but nobody wants to talk about that, presumably because of the eugenics/nazi undertones involved.

    Not least the Interior Minister Gerard Collomb who has thrown in the towel today. He was Macron's first supporter and is a big loss but had complained of the "boss"'s lack of judgement recently. In his leaving speech he had this to say about French no-go zones "the situation is very bad, yes, today, it is really the law of the jungle, traffikers and radical islamists have replaced the French republic" These are the no-go zones that Hollande claimed didn't exist... but in that case why is there a programme of "Reconquista" that has just been launched for these areas? Also of note, France's most wanted Redoine Faïd was recaptured today in a Paris suburb. He'd been walzing around the place in a Burka and it was only when someone thought that "he" didn't look very lady like that someone thought to check out his identity.

    Picking up a post from one of my favourite comedy sites - I give you https://www.property118.com/ukarmortgage-express-moving-goalposts/ In summary - landlord owes bank £2.3m - he wants to sell a single property for £285k. Bank wishes to keep all the money received leaving said landlord without the means to pay his capital gains tax.. So he isn't going to sell the property as he doesn't have the spare cash to do so...

    It is a civil law matter being decided in the High Court so guilt or innocence don't come into it. https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/circular-0032018-criminal-finances-act-unexplained-wealth-orders/circular-0032018-unexplained-wealth-orders HMRC can actually raise tax assessments based purely on lifestyle investigations using notional income figures derived from analysis of an individuals spending behaviour not matching declared income or debt. This why money has to be laundered (i.e given some believable source). This is not new either as they were doing it in the 1980s when I worked for the Inland Revenue. Incidentally, earnings from illegal and immoral activity are also taxable under UK law.

    the time to have been sorting this out was 2009, not now. [I suppose it could be argued 'better late than never' -- but this should go alongside deep questioning of those in the relevant positions of authority in previous years as to why checks were so lax back then, and also some official indication as to how big the problem actually is. I'd also support the restriction to sales of property to offshore institutions (if at all) to those that have been vetted as being open -- definitely not the likes of BVI that are notoriously closed] Sure -- and we'll all be investigated to the (n+1)th degree about the provenance of our wealth, while the truly wealthy continue to do as they please.

    That is the single most worrying thing about freedom of movement. With borders you have the Meansto control population growth as a local policy. It's practically impossible at a global level.

    Islamification of Europe

    I stopped at Trowell services this afternoon for a bit of hot bogging and had cause to cross the footbridge to the opposite carriageway. In true Dosbods thrift mode because the Greggs app had sent me a free pumpkin latte and I had to use it. When crossing I noticed a guy in full skirt and trousers looking like he had walked out of the pakistani foothills ducking in to the Multi Faith Prayer room. I have never had the need to stop for a prayer break so was intrigued to know more about these 'prayer rooms' The motorway services guide makes no mention of this facility on its website. But don't worry fellow prayers if you type Trowell services prayer room into duckduckgo you will find that the mosquedirectory website has got it covered for all you prayers out there. It has a convenient multi faith guide for worshipers, Prayer Time Table Today Sub Sadiq 05:14 Fajar 06:30 Sun rise 07:05 Zawwal 12:54 Zohar 13:30 Asr Start 16:37 Jamaat 17:00 Sun Set 18:31 Magrib 18:35 Esha 20:18 Esha 20:30 Intrigued further by this discovery I wondered as to how prayers should treat this facility given it is clearly labelled as multi faith and found this useful advice. The multi faith prayer room is under the management of a nameless charity trust in Preston which I have yet to discover. Thank God that 'multi faiths' are being catered for, because God knows when you need a prayer stop.

    I agree. Perhaps one can give him some leeway given he was a lawyer, and it's their job to maintain the confidentiality of their client, which as part of the Office of Independent Counsel (?) under Ken Starr at the time, was the Whitehouse. One can imagine the moral dilemmas an inexperienced but ambitious 30 year old would have gone through being so close to such a cover-up. Going with the establishment line could well have felt like the best thing to do, particularly if he believed that to raise doubts, object or resign wouldn't have made a difference anyway, and in itself caused more harm. Interesting thoughts.. Could his appointment, and his proximity to the Vince Foster case be part of the grand plan? Chris Ruddy, the NewsMax CEO Pritchard mentions in his article was also one of the people who advised Donald Trump to appoint Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court in the first place. http://www.fbicover-up.com Btw.. anyone interested in the Vince Foster case, one of the earliest independent investigators was a chap, Michael Rivero, of whatreallyhappened.com. This case, though his site, was my introduction to the conspiracy theory world back in the late 90s, so this is quite a walk down memory lane for me. He's summary page is a good introduction to the case, with some interesting links to follow.. http://www.whatreallyhappened.com/RANCHO/POLITICS/FOSTER_COVERUP/foster.php#axzz5SrFiY7Gb As for the Telegraph, your far-out possibility may not be so far-out TBH. My first job out of uni was for LIVE TV, a subsidiary of the Mirror Group, run by Kelvin McKenzie and his No. 2 Nick Ferrari, whilst Piers Morgan was McKenzie's boss as Editor of the Mirror. I wasn't involved in news, but my desk was close to the news desk and right outside McKenzie's office, and the three of them would often have stand up meetings a few feet behind me. It was quite an education, as you can imagine. I learned a lot about how these people think, and it's a common strategy to carefully build up a narrative over a period of time. Whichever paper gets in first with the juicy scoops, and is able to carry the narrative forward most successfully, gains a real sales advantage, and it can be a great career booster for the journalist leading the way too.
