Re: an end to 'council housing for life'?

Reallly? How awful. I dont know how people can do that, just sheer greed its awful. I know what you mean about the benefits thing, but i think they should really look at the problem holistically, putting a stupid plaster on it isnt gonna work! (I have been watching The Scheme all weekend, hence the ...

Re: Activists hijack Vodafone site over 'unpaid tax'

That reminds me of that old poem against the inclosure acts 'The law locks up the man or woman Who steals the goose from off the common But leaves the greater villain loose Who steals the common from off the goose. The law demands that we atone When we take things we do not own But leaves the lords ...

Re: an end to 'council housing for life'?

I think there is a difference between abuse and people who have the potential to 'better' themselves but for whatever reason are unable to. I think council housing and free health service for life are essential to a democratic society and even though there is some abuse, abolishing it for that reaso...

Re: Activists hijack Vodafone site over 'unpaid tax'

Yeah totally especially when its unpaid tax, its a complete joke that big businesses like Vodaphone and Tesco get away with not paying as much tax as they should, when so many people are struggling to survive with increases in VAT etc.

Re: Leicester City Council 'not ready' for Zombies

mm Probably.

To be fair though I bet Glasgow city council is the most ready for Zombies, as a city theyve got a good track record from warding off attacks '"Glasgow doesn't accept this. This is Glasgow; we'll set aboot ye."
Good old Smeaton.

Re: an end to 'council housing for life'?

The point is that the state should be there to care for those most vulnerable people. Anyone see that documentary Poor Kids? it was completely harrowing, and this type of injust policy will end up hurting those who most need help. Studies show that social mobility is slowing down, so kids born in th...

Re: Somalia Pirates go into overdrive, no stopping them now

maybe there should be a different word for them instead of pirate, which makes you think of parrots on shoulders, ale and gold earrings. they should be called something like sea gangsters. like how the term 'islamist' was coined to seperate normal muslims with extremist terrorists. but for different...

Re: Soya - the scourge of the Earth

I would never knowingly buy and consume GM soya, most of the big soya companies, Alpro, Provamel and Taifun do not use GM products. And Taifun only uses European soya beans to reduce the risk of contamination with GM crops, something that could happen in the US where both GM and non GM are grown.

Re: Soya - the scourge of the Earth

i think people have known for a long time about its harmful effects on the thyroid gland.

and surely the majority of the time the soya is fermented into tofu, like with wimdu[/url] process or whatever its called, thus avoiding many of the disadvantages, mm?

Re: Hello All

Yeah actually I was chatting with my mate the other day and he says he was going to link me some of those interviews. It just surprises me you know, I am half thinking of doing some more Anthropological research on why this is, especially as I heard a lot of sightings happen in the north, in Siberia...

Re: Somalia Pirates go into overdrive, no stopping them now

I think to some extent people have quite a flippant approach to these criminals, just cos we're like pirates?? LOL and we think they must be all like Johnny Depp.

Or is that just me.

I do think its a awful problem and the root of it should be addressed. dont stick another plaster on it!
