Re: In or out?

Crikey! I didn't think you'd go for that one! So why should anyone care a stuff for anyone else? Is it really "I'm all right, Jack"? And if one thing is international, it is medical research. So the devastation of Southern Europe impacts in British resident too, doesn't it? I can't believ...

Re: In or out?

Lol! What fuse? More a damp squib. :laughter: Comparatively few know anything about (the unelected) Lord Adonis, fewer knew he had resigned from anything, and just about no-one has even heard of the National Infrastructure Commission. And the referendum is just a "populist spasm", is it? :...

Re: In or out?

And cast your mind back to the last time we had a lefty government, which wasn't perfectly relaxed about people becoming stinking rich, but instead wanted to make the pips squeak, and we see a net outflow of people.

Re: In or out?

I'll try a slightly different tack: about all you've said Nick so far is that the benefit of being out of the EU is that we won't be in it yes, that is how it seems to me; BTW, welcome back to this thread Nick :wink:. Thanks, animist! How wise it is for me to return remains to be seen... :wink: Tro...

your last question, Compo: answer is yes it would be better if there were just one country and set of laws, but only if these were the right ones! :D So the answer is no, then :wink: I would agree a good way on Nick over this. Most disturbing! Should have tried an analogy :laughter: Jus' kiddin' :w...

Re: Is Earth overpopulated with humans?

Without measures which I regard as impossible to justify, I don't think we can reduce the world population any time soon. As for the distribution of people, yes, there are certain things we can do, not least make it more attractive to live in the more sparsely populated areas of the world. We achiev...

Re: How can we protect everyone's human rights equally?

Hi Compo! :) The answer to your last question is no, definitely not! I also have trouble with the idea that there is some sort of definitive list and description of "human rights". Just about every one seems to be excepted in certain circumstances. and unachieved in too many others. I also...
