  1. I think people on benefit should have to do something for their money. The woman in the original story doesn't have young kids. She should really have to either pick up litter or even just sit in an empty room somewhere for 8 hours a day. Why should someone on benefit be free to sit in their garden or park while taxpayers are at work paying tax to support her?
  2. In most parts of the world the poor simply don't get money from the government. I really don't have a lot of sympathy for someone that's never (?) worked and cant budget. Part of growing up is dealing with the consequences of your actions...
  3. The "Brexiters didn't know what they were voting for" argument is crap IMHO. The EU has never stood still and is constantly evolving. If we had voted Bremain there is no guarantee what the EU will be like in ten or twenty years... Just look at how the EEC has evolved into the EU since 1973... The status quo was never on the table....

    Widows throwing themselves on the funeral pyres of their dead husbands is a thing in India.... In Varanasi Hindus burn dead relatives so they can throw their ashes into the Ganges. Seemingly some poor Indians cant afford the wood for the funeral pyre so they just throw the body into the Ganges. I've heard that the bodies wash ashore and other Indians make their living by taking the clothes off to sell....

    do you have a link for that?
  6. FFS, men traditionally retired at 65 and women retired at 60. So to pursue equality the government put up the retirement age for women. Now women want compensation for this? It's bizarre.... You could have the situation where a women born on the same day as a man gets compensation for retiring later... Even though she retired earlier than the man.....
  7. Bring in a SUV tax... It's established scientific fact that car exhausts cause ashma etc. Imho, anyone that buys a SUV that doesn't need one is a bit of a bell end.... They're basically putting their "need" for a flash car ahead of the health of kids...
  8. I'm not into cars, however is there really that much difference between a Ford Focus and the equivalent size BMW? Cars are really just a way to get from A to B. It's bizarre that people spend a fortune on them....
  9. To be frank, I think everything else is just pissing in the wind.... If we want to save the polar bears/ elephants/ ice caps etc we need to reduce the size of the human population. I'm not talking about genocide, I'm more talking about reducing family sizes etc.
  10. Reduce the human population and every environmental problem you can think of reduces....
  11. The next time some Bremainer makes some snide comment about Brexiters not wanting to listen to experts remind him of this terrorist attack.
  12. This is on the news. A probation expert was saying "you never know what someone will do". I bet this still doesn't mean terrorists will be locked up for life. To be frank, I'm glad that these two were killed and the creme de la creme of the justice system saw it.
  13. Your son has been stabbed to death. Who do you condemn on Twitter? Option A. The person that attacked your son. Option B. The ideology of the attacker. Option C. The media that reported the attack.
  14. As terrorist attacks go this has to be a good one. The terrorist was shot through the head and the two people he killed were people that actively campaigned for prisoner release etc. We also have the comical image of the terrorist getting attacked with a narwhal tusk. I bet this jack buy actively contributed to getting the terrorist released early.
  15. I'll just park this here. Jack should be nominated for a Darwin Award. Mr Merritt’s father David, also from Cambridge, described his son as “a beautiful spirit who always took the side of the underdog” and who believed deeply in the concept of prisoner rehabilitation. He added on Twitter: “My son, Jack, who was killed in this attack, would not wish his death to be used as the pretext for more draconian sentences or for detaining people unnecessarily.
