    We should reduce foreign aid massively
    I say cut it all and write off any debts that have already been paid off in terms of interest :P perhaps that's a bit naive though

    I find it to be pretty average.
    Yeah, I don't understand why everyone is so obsessed about it. When I go home I still see people from my old sixth form hanging out in Nandos, after 3 years :confused:

    If we all loved the same sex, then the human race would become extinct
    But we don't, so we don't need to worry about that?


    To conclude that argument is pathetic.

    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?

    They are our culture its enough that our stately homes are being bought up by Russian oligarchs must we also lose the royals?

    Actually we pay for very few of them these days and they bring in FAR FAR more than they take, if nothing else they do wonders for the economy.

    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....

    People are disgusted by the idea. I am not. Obviously this doesn't apply to your pets, but I would find it totally acceptable if people started consuming dog or cat meat as a sustainable source of protein.

    Why would you want that?
    Just seems logical to me.

    Also, just bear in mind the title of this thread.

    People who go on to higher education generally earn more. Given that, why shouldn't they pay for their education?
    They should pay for it afterwards. You know, when some people might actually start having money for once in their life?

    Not that controversial, plenty of stupid people like Nigel Farage
    In terms of fringe parties he's far better than Natalie Bennett and her ludicrous party full of idealists

    2 main reasons for this I believe.

    The first reason just being that people are often more emotional than logical, so as such many people would rather not listen to the logic because just the thought of eating cats or dogs triggers a negative emotional reaction in many people.

    The second reason, is that we tend to not eat carnivores (not including fish). Someone explained why once, I've forgotten what the big deal about it was. But it's a reason apparently.

    Well carnivores are nearer the top of food chains so are normally less in number. Drop in their population can cause massive propellers for the ecosystems they live in. That applies if you hunt them from the wild.

    ALos they are harder to farm since they can't just eat say grass.

    Some possible reasons :dontknow:
