But who's right?
This is just a quick guide to starting a thread here. You don't have to follow it, but sometimes people may feel concerned about how to bring up a debate. So this is a suggestion for how you might want to start a thread so that you'll be able to get the ball rolling on whatever's on your mind.
1. Debate pretty much covers everything
There's a huge variety of issues that can be...

Not often I'm speechless.
Is this guy serious?
Well maybe not the company, but insurance premiums based on gender quite possibly.
Bout fucking time.
:eek: That is just wrong. Why do young children need to learn stuff this early? I personally wouldn't want any future children on mine learning about sex ed this early - especially this stuff.
I've found myself posting less and less in here in the past few months, and I think the time has come for me to go into retirement and ride into the sunset.
So goodbye to each and all. It's been educational and entertaining and have enjoyed my time here. I'd happily go and have a pint with anyone here, including those I've locked horns with (specially them, come to think of it) at any time.
Personally I think that India is now wealthy enough to fund itself, especially as it's giving out Foreign Aid to other countries
But any other views?
Should people be put in a cell if police put them under the mental health act?
i would love to hear your views. personally when its happened to me it's been very traumatic and i'm left with no dignity. I still have flash backs.
However, are you one that agrees on it- that it should happen
? my arguement is why dont they go to hospital as a place of safety?
Is it a case that we need to...
does it bother you when people use terms like this?
Do you think its problematic, or am i getting annoyed over nothing?
Forgive me if this's been posted before, but I didn't see it. Most forums have these threads stickied or at least on the first or second page with lots of responses. I didn't dig too deep because of that as I figured even if I did find it, grave digging is against the rules.
Anyway, very simple. What's your religion? Feel free to disagree and explain why certain religions are not for you, et...
The rules about product placement on UK television are changing, with commercial channels now allowed to feature placed products in programmes in exchange for sponsorship. Companies selling gambling services, baby food, alcohol and high salt/fat foods won't be allowed to place their products in programmes, and they won't be allowed to place any...
Most of the text content is pointless, but the video shows troops opening fire on unarmed civilians who weren't really doing much of anything except being noisy. To say the actions of the soldiers was cowardly and disgusting is an understatement. ...
Mubarak has stepped down. :d
I'm reluctant to persue this because of a few reasons.
basically a long story short is, during PE we were playing an outside ball game, indoors, and i ran into the wall and broke both my wrists. thinking about going for compensation but
this happened in 2005, not sure about if theres a certain time limit you have to persue a case, and it was kinda my fault, i didnt slip on any water or...
I saw this in the paper today and was interested to know what people think. When i was at the nursery this is how the majority of our parents talked. I haven't seen the show but i'm not sure what the problem is. thoughts?
According to the judge in this case, minority rights should never outweigh majority rights. Which leads me to a couple of questions and I'd be interested in your thought on what the judge said...
1. Aren't rights there to protect the population from the Govt, not each other?
2. Aren't rights applicable to all, so the concept of minority vs majority doesn't actually apply?
Am I the only person whom watched it tonight?
If not, what did you think?
I think that cell phones shouldn't be banned for truck and bus drivers. I don't think we should descriminate against someone just because they drive a truck. However, I believe that the trucking companies should be allowed to decide whether or not they want to permit their truckers to use cell phones while driving or not.
Really surprised there hasn't been any sort of discussion on this yet. I haven't watched the most recent episode but have seen the previous ones...
How did this show even make it on to our TVs?
Crazy stats, misleading info and a massive emphasis placed on sexual positions over relationships etc. I could go on and on, but it is something that I've ranted about a lot already and don't have...
I think that it's a bit hypocritical, to at first say that bigotry isn't challenged if the person isn't white... Then go on to imply that 'extremism' in religion seems to be the preserve of Islam, when there are organisations such as Christian Voice, who openly support marital rape and killing gay people.
Also, non-religious extremism, linked to the BNP and others on...
CCTV cameras that tell people off for dropping litter or committing anti-social behaviour are to be installed in 20 areas across England.
The cameras are already in use in Middlesbrough where anyone seen misbehaving can be told via a loudspeaker to stop.
Local councillors say the scheme has already prevented criminal damage and cut litter levels.
Do you think they'd work? Should...
OMG, Brian Donohoe says something useful!: http://news.scotsman.com/scotland/MP-in-move-to-scrap.6657925.jp
I think we should get rid of the list MSPs in the Scottish parliament. They don't reperesent a constituency, they are not accountable to anyone, they are literally there just to make up the numbers. And the system that elects them means voters pick a party, not a candidate, so you don't...
Anyone here cares to attempt to defend the government's fucking disgraceful plans to sell off our forests to the highest bidder?
Same old fucking Tories. They really ARE loving this recession aren't they? It's a god-sent gift to them. One by one, all the national are assets being dismantled, destroyed, stripped...
I don't know how many of you on here have been watching the Justice season on BBC Four. I have been enjoying it, but I generally do like philosophy and in particular legal philosophy.
As part of the season they broadcast a programme which was a lecture by Michael Sandelof Harvard University looking at whether Murder could evere be morally justified. It got me thinking and I would be...
It's about time. "Rogue reporter" my arse.
Hello French Military Coalition?????
Brits who pay attention to news on the forces will know, Camerons had a fabulous idea to demolish an ISLAND nations Aerial and naval defences. He has plans of scrapping our marine fleet because oh we can share with the French, I personally don't like trusting the French with my lunch let alone my countries defence.
Oh another Brilliant brainwave was...
I figured if we're getting an idea of where we stand religiously in the other thread, we can also get an idea of what platforms we stand on politically.
I, myself, am a left-leaning Libertarian. Paleolibertarian, to be precise.
