Your views, my views.

How would you interpret your political stance? In addition to the poll question, consider these and answer as you like: 1. Do you identify with any political party - if yes, which one and why; if no, why not? 2. How important do you consider environmentalism to be? 3. Do you support democracy? If ye...

RE: Afghanistan

The new Government are as corrupt, oppressive and undemocratic as the Taliban. Nothing's changed. The US should have taken the Taliban's offer in 2001 and had Osama handed over. But no, Georgie had to have his little war with the desert nomads - now he got all the Jihadists against him. They were ou...

RE: Why Britain should join the Euro

[quote=marcsten] I am superficially attracted to the Euro (not sure why), but it's true that we'd lose control of monetary policy to the ECB. Is that really a good idea? What's good for, say, France, Germany and Poland might not be good for the UK economy. [/quote] Losing power to the ECB is no good...

RE: Smoking in public places

I'm torn here between principle and health. Okay, i think people should be free to light up wherever they like. I disapprove, of course. Legislation restricting civil liberties is not acceptable - though there is considerable benefit to society. I don't think Governments should enforce them. We need...

RE: A Scientist And A Farmer

Kind of like the age-old pub one.

A guy's sitting in the pub. Wants the bathroom - badly needing a leak. He puts a sign on his glass.

"I spat in this drink"

When he returns, after relieving himself, he sees a note scrawled beneath:

"so did i".

RE: Family or Religion?

[quote=DodgeFB] I believe everyone has the right to their own religion. It seems that some "athiest" do have a religion of sorts. Some and only some feel it is their "right" and "duty" to fight all religion on every front. That seems a little "arrogant" to me, but to each his own. [/quote] I'm for f...

RE: Iraq and 9/11

I'd like to take back the huge conspiracy theory thing. I don't think it was the US government any more. The thing leaks like a sieve - we'd have heard something of it by now! I should point out that not only was the Iraq war illegal, it also achieved nothing against what you'd call terrorism. Sadda...
