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...

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...
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.
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...
it's been over 5 days, and no one has posted a single topic to debate about... what's happenin' forum.
So yes we are spending a lot of money over in Afghanistan at the moment, what do people think of this guys visit over here? Any thoughts on whether it will make a little bit of difference, or wasted money?
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?...
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?
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...
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?
What do we reckon? Likely to survive for celebrities protecting their imgage, or heading fast for disappearing.
Yes I know its a daily mail link, but the same story is elsewhere too. I might stir up some controversy here, but when I look at this picture in the article, I cant help but think that as much as you want to protest, being right in the thick of a...
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? I'm not sure if its true but I read somewhere that tax evasion/avoidance costs the govt more than benefit fraud, but it still shouldnt be an excuse not to combat cases...
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.
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.
Charlie Veitch's arrest
Charlie Veitch was arrested under suspicion that he may or may not decide to protest the royal wedding on Friday (as well as for being at the UKUncut demo where the police tricked activists in to a kettle).
Whether or not we agree with his approach or his message (and please, nobody start whining about middle class anarchists, it says more about chips on people's...
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?
Today the verdict was delivered in the inquest into the death of Ian Tomlinson during the G20 protests in London on 1 April 2009. The verdict of the inquest was that Ian Tomlinson was unlawfully killed. The jury decided that Police Constable Simon Harwood used "excessive and unreasonable" force. The Crown Prosecution Service will now conduct a thorough review into whether PC Harwood should now...
Seriously, is this all that's important in US politics these days. Or have the right wing really lost their fucking marbles?
I know it's the Daily Fail, but I'm quite tickled by how this could possibly be seen by anyone as a terrible scandal.
A young man and woman climbed to the top of a University building and has sex in public view. Unfortunately, someone decided to take photos and...
Just something kicking around in my head and I'm not sure exactly how to word it. Do you think that people, particularly with each new generation, are being more and more protected from the consequences of their actions?
Intervening factors would be those such as the 'compensation culture', which perhaps encourages responsibility on one hand but removes it with the other. Companies learn...
After all the violence and killing that happened against pro-democracy demonstrators in Bahrain do you think King Hamad of Bahrain should be invited to the UK royal wedding?
Please let me know your thoughts...
According to the Universities Minister, allowing women to work and go to university has made life harder for working class men, as well as being partly to blame for the divide between the most wealthy and the poor.
