No wonder they want to leave the European Court of Human Rights if this is the kind of discriminatory policy they want to bring in. Please help to get rid of this Tory scourge
04/23/2017 at 13:45
Stupid Woman!! I have 3, I was married and planned them, never claimed tax credits untill I divorced, one of them is a twin.. I can see the logic behind this but it is going to be far too difficult to carry out in practice and far too distressing for people who actually have been assaulted so they probably won't come forward. It's madness.

I'm sure those investigations won't be expensive of course... (!) Never mind the cost of prosecuting and perhaps even jailing them...

Pregnant women are being legally pimped out for sex – this is the lowest form of capitalism

Since when are prostition and pimping a capitalist preserve? It is not called the oldest profession for no reason. It long, long predates capitalism,
04/23/2017 at 13:06
Oh I dunno, I think the lowest form of capitalism is people having to work full time at less than the living wage, or in some cases on zero hour contracts, or where corporations deliberately employ immigrant workers so they can pay them less than a British employee.

This is absolutely sickening. I cant believe there are so many judgemental twats out there who say she deserved it as it was her choice.. You dont know her circumstances!! Rather than blaming the woman you should focus on why our society fell so low and what can be done to prevent such cases because one day it might be your female relative in similar position!

If ever there was an alien army thinking of invading our planet, I doubt they need to do much, they just have to wait and we will hand our planet on silver platter...coz we are self destructive, why waste your resources on invading a planet that is destroying itself? Our intolerance towards each other as a race is our ultimate downfall! Yes cynics will find and intelligent " theory" and argue it out, but fact is we are self destructive...period!
04/23/2017 at 12:53
There are so many more important issues that affect our society and our daily lives that you have to ask why ukip focus on this type of cultural or ethnic issue?
I can safely say the wearing of a head scarf - full face or otherwise - has never affected or influenced anything in my day to day life and I doubt it has for many people in our society.
It is an irrelevance and so are ukip.

Haha so banning a few burkahs is going to solve all of our problems. How pathetic to hear. I am sure ukip is going to win the election on this one. Most of the nutters that have committed attrocities were wearing shoes and socks so maybe we should ban them too on security grounds. As long as it makes the ukip base happy i guess you need to throw some morsels at them.

In short, Syria needs aid and not bombs. The Syria Democratic Forces are making headway, and are a legitimate revolutionary force. The moderate rebels have been overrun by extremists funded by Saudi Arabia and Qatar.
Corbyn would be doing more than May, who has sucked up to the Saudi Royals - the saboteurs of the Syrian revolution.

The Independent St George was not born to a Turkish father, nor born in Turkey. Turkey did not yet exist, and the Turks had not yet arrived in the region.

why is it very important ? I'd suggest the vast majority of England couldn't give a toss where he's from, and unless you're of celtic descent you're all immigrants, so bugger off and shut the door on the way out.

04/23/2017 at 11:16
The choice now is between labour, which says will fund the NHS, scrap uni fees, fund education and increase wages & the Tories who will sell everything for the benefits of the global elites. The LibDems will join the Tories as they did last time! The Greens have only 1 seat & their main target is a labour seat in Bristol, so that's not going to get the Tories out. It's a two horse race! If you hate the Tories vote LABOUR
04/23/2017 at 11:36
This is not neutral. Recommends voting against Kate Hoey because of brexit, but says nothing about voting against Greg Mulholland, a lib dem who failed to vote against article fifty, and consistently votes to deprive women of their reproductive rights, whose seat could go labour.
It's a lib dem organised and run lobby, and the money being used to campaign as such should be declared as election expenses.

Air pollution is a major problem, definitely noticed the difference this last Winter when out walking. Very dangerous and EU standards need to be followed. We cannot simply tell the public to stop inside if they have health problems.
