    Not so much a view but I'd like to die of cancer or something that's degenerative but takes a long time. So I know when I'll die
    I've lost at leasat three relatives to cancer. I've sat and watched one of them die, slowly. (I was too young to remember of them die) I can't understand why you'd want to die of cancer? It's horrible. It's a ****ing painful way to go. Oh, and you don't know when you're going to die. One was given a year to live. He lived about 8 months. He died of a chest infection. It was slow and painful. My mum had to sit and watch the man who raised her, die.

    What a absolutely ****ty thing to say. The treatments are horrible. You lose your hair, (ok, he didn't have much anyway) the hospital stays, the constant risk of infections, the chemo and the side effects. He spent the best part of the last 4 years not being able to eat the majority of foods and was tube fed and was also given some drinks (similar to slimfast I guess) because he couldn't swallow most foods. He had to learn how to eat again. He ate mostly pureed foods. He couldn't eat out and it took him forever to eat a small plate of food.

    My mum is a carer for a man who is dying of a degenerative disease that will eventually kill him. He's bed bound and can't do anything for himself. He can't even go toilet without help. Why on earth would you want that FFS?

    And yet prisons around the country are doing a great job,right?
    Such prisoners should be locked up for 23hours a day and serve a minimum of 15 years
    I think prisons right now are doing a **** job, and even worse once the prisoners are out as its extremely hard for them to get a job and a whole host of other things needed to settle down into society.


    So...you basically think prisoners like that should basically be tortured for at least 15 years. What about when those 15 years are up? Do you think after being repeatedly abused, locked up for 23hrs a day and repeatedly raped that these prisoners won't reoffend when out? If you think they won't you are delusional and I question your intelligence.

    Its called binge eating disorder, its already recognised. However its more than just being overweight or even obese.

    You can take our lives but you'll never take our alcohol. What exactly is the point in increasing the age limit for alcohol?

    Do you not think that bringing back the cane could have its problems? When I was in school I was punished once or twice for things I didn't even do. Not only that, but there are an awful lot of teachers I just wouldn't trust with the cane.
    alcohol related deaths is highest amongst young people. it would also stop stupid mistakes young people commit and then use alcohol as an excuse for (cheating, violence etc.). same could be said for older adults but they're more responsible (generally)

    yes it could have its problems but it would instil better behaviour in students (esp high school students). i went to school in africa and the discipline their and the work ethic of the students (compared to the UK) is incredible

    Why is that a reason to restrict alcohol even further? It will not stop idiots from getting alcohol through other means and being idiots, it only tends to restrict responsible people. We have underage drinkers today, and that's when the age limit is 18. Education is the key, restricting it just makes it more attractive to certain types of people.

    I don't see why people are offended by the thought of eating dogs or cats. I see it as perfectly fine and extremeley hypocritical of those who consume other animals and argue that animals are all "equal". #EATDOG

    1) That measures should be taken to severely restrict the sale of cigarettes and alcohol in this country.

    2) There is no 'war' on drugs.

    3) We should reintroduce the death penalty.

    These are 3 of mine.

    First of all I have never met a person who was not vegetarian that had the entire all animals are equal view. Second, at least I think, it isn't so much that people offended by the thought of eating cats and dogs, they are offended by the though of eating their cat or dog or their friends cat or dog....

    1. Prison life should be near the point of unbearable for people that have committed severe crimes. Murderers should be confined in small cells for 24 hours a day, and never see the light of day. Murderers being deprived of all privileges seems like a necessity to me, yet they often get to roam about with fellow murders playing some prison version of hopscotch. No. Their lives should each be a complete misery. But there are these things called human rights that get in the way of this. I have only one question: WHY SHOULD A MURDERER RETAIN HUMAN RIGHTS?
    Why would you want that?

    A complete uniformed and ignorant view but is it needed? What does the royal family even do? Why are we paying for them to do nothing?
