Re: The Last Days Of Boris Johnson

Well... They're going to try and keep him there anyway. It may not be possible, but I don't know who'd be daft enough to take the job as caretaker.

Re: The Last Days Of Boris Johnson

Of course not. He's been a dead man walking for months. The Tories want him to stay as PM long enough to take the blame for the shit that hasn't hit the fan yet (notably the energy price rises that are coming in October). Then the new Tory leader comes in, acts decisively to fix the problem, and enj...

Re: When does an Embryo have intrinsic value to you?

And i see no reason to think that a person who is being selfish would be a suitable parent. Other than the fact that literally every human is selfish at some point in their lives? If you set the bar for parenthood at such a level then humanity will be extinct in a few hundred yards. There is a very...

Re: When does an Embryo have intrinsic value to you?

I'd say pretty much all abortions are inherently selfish as ultimately they are about the woman prioritising herself over the potential new life. I'm not sure how you could conceive of a selfless act of abortion... perhaps to spare what would have been a terminally ill child a life of suffering? But...

I'd rather buy real money. What's counterfeit money going to get me?
I can sell you as many English pounds as you like for a fiver each. Scottish pounds will be slightly more

Re: When does an Embryo have intrinsic value to you?

You seem to be asking a lot of different questions as if they are the same thing. I will answer them the best I can. and in your mind is an inevitability that life will happen? I'll start with the easiest first. Life is happening from day one. I'm not sure where you can point to their not being life...

I rather like it, to be honest. No harm in casting a wider net, as long as it's treated as a question and not a guess

Re: Southern Boarder

Was wondering if anyone was able to varify the following? I'm not particularly familiar with the Africa Facts Zone so it's entirely possible that it's a nonsense. If not, it's pretty grim viewing.

Re: Roe v. Wade SCOTUS Opinion leak confirmed

Ora, what exactly is the point of that opinion piece? I can see why you want to put some distance between yourself and the ludicrous idea that adoption is worse than death, but I have no idea why you'd post such drivel in the first place.

Re: Southern Boarder

I confess I don't know enough about the history of the enclaves to make an informed comment. If there's a long established period of Africans who consider themselves Spanish living there for generations then it's hard to conclude that giving their home to another country, or moving them to the Spani...

Re: Roe v. Wade SCOTUS Opinion leak confirmed

Pretty grim reading. It's hard to disagree with the reasoning behind it, but as problematic as Roe v Wade was it was nevertheless a sticking plaster that served a purpose. Without it the world becomes significantly worse for a lot of people. Still, this sort of radical policy shift is what you get w...

Re: War, what is it good for?

As the war continues to rumble enthusiastically onwards, it is worth a look at how European public opinion stands regarding the conflict.
