  1. Is education a right and should it be free?

    Earlier this week, the Open University announced that from 2017, they'll be charging £5k for full-time courses. Some current students are moaning because we don't get that many tutorials (I have 5 for this module this year) and we have to self-study. However, unlike students at brick unis, we don't need to pay for our text books. I see nothing wrong with paying for my education and don't see...

  3. Theresa May, Big Mistake!!!!!

    I never fail to be absolutely gob smacked by the stupidity of some Politicians when they open their mouths when it is obvious what they are about to say will invite trouble. Theresa May, the present Home Secretary has just in my mind done something which should require her Leader, David Cameron to consider another post for her. Yesterday we had senior officers from the Met being...

  4. Keeping a baby's sex secret after birth

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-13581835 Here's an interesting story I found, would love to hear your views on it. Basically, I encourage you to read the story (especially the Toronto Star story- more informative I feel), but the outline is: Couple have a third child. They aren't revealing if it is female or male, so that it can grow up who it wants to be, without any stereotypes...

  5. Prince Charles' income from taxpayers increases by £298,000

    Story from the Guardian Can anyone justify this whilst spending cuts are leading to key health services closing and patients being denied 'expensive' medicine; grants to train teachers are being cut aggressively or abolished; etc.?

    Or at least the Daily Mail like to think so. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2010193/Teachers-strike-Sophie-Howard-13-killed-falling-branch-school-closed.html What caught my particular attention was this snippet from an angry parent. Just because this wouldnt have happened if the kid was at school, doesn't mean it is the teachers fault. Could have happened to her anyway on...

  9. Should I leave my Union

    Like many public sector unions my union, Public and Commercial Services (which despite its name is a civil service union) will be going out on Thursday. Despite voting against the strike I'll be out with them, on the belief if you join a club you accept their rules. However, I'm seriously thinking about leaving it after twelve years in that I fundamentally disagree with its approach which I...

    In terms of sheer numbers who is the biggest terrorist nation on Earth? Who has unleashed atom bombs on Japan? Who has ruthlessly used chemical and biological weapons against Vietnam? Who carpet bombed Laos,Cambodia and Iraq? Who distorts Middle Eastern politics for their own ends? Who helped overthrow loads of democratic or vaguely liberal govts in Afica,South America and the Middle East?...

  11. Treatment of victims and familys in the justice system

    There's been some interesting follow up articles in the media after the Milly Dowler trial. One example being http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-13905808 , but there are plenty around. Anyone got any thoughts as to whether this is a one off issue with the particular circumstances of this case, or is it a more general issue?

  12. Gay marriage in New York

    Guardian news story I'm surprised this hasn't been posted yet. This to me is at least a step in the right direction, it is worth reading the whole thing I have linked to, however there are plenty more news stories about the subject too. I think that for a country which enshrined the words "Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness" in its declaration of independence, that change such as...

    Whether on radio, podcast or television. It'll also help me, personally, if you can perhaps list off any reasons why you favor these particular pundits. My personal favorites are Glenn Beck (a lot of you already probably know that I have a mancrush on him), John Stossel, Andrew Napolitano, Greg Gutfeld, Steven Crowder, Lee Doren, Mike Trivisonno, Michael Medved, and Dennis Prager. And I guess...

  15. EDL being Thugs

    Link is here... Why do people think that organisations like EDL exist? Is it because there are no parties who represent working class people and newspapers scapegoating Muslims? If people now feel they have no electoral representation with the BNP, will these incidences increase?

  18. Bizarre benefits fraud excuses revealed by government

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-13587434 Have a look at the linked article, some of the excuses are quite amusing. However there is a comment on the article from a gentleman which states Thoughts and comments please people?

  19. Homeopathic remedies - total waste of time?

    Because we can have more fun here than derailing a Health post. I'm in two minds about them. I wouldn't go homeopathic in place of conventional medicine, but I'm willing to give it a go. Apis mel seems to bring my allergic reactions down. Steroid cream, antihistamine cream, and antihistamine tablets do as well, but adding apis mel to the armoury seems to improve things further.

  20. Stalking/Harrassment

    I'd really appreciate if people would throw in their thoughts and feelings on the subject of harrassment and stalking. Do people think that enough is done in this country to protect us/you from unhealthily obsessive people? I would compare stalking to being burgled, in that a lot of the core emotions invoked in the victim must be very similar. Fear, the sense of being invaded, etc. ...

  22. Poll Poll: Vote to change the way we vote

    On the 5th of May, Britain will vote in a referendum to change the way we vote, or not. The "yes" campaign want to change the tried-and-tested first-past-the-post system to the complex and sophisticated Alternative Vote (AV) system. Which way will you be voting?
