    Lies. Sexual work and crime will increase
    Sexual work is largely legal any way. Crime will increase where the poor are based. The rich will create their own enclaves and call for gun laws.

    Simple really, it will be a better existence. As the best (Darwinian winners) won't need to prop up the feckless any more and are free to go about their business without government interference.

    How is their government ignoring human rights when the country itself is poverty ripe?
    I didn't say Nepal per se is ignoring human rights; I said begging in the streets like in Nepal....

    Once you start travelling you'll see. It works out great.

    Cut all the benefits i say, let the free market open up. I'd like to see real Darwinism. Set for those that need it i.e the disabled.

    People beg in the UK i can hardly make it across town without being asked 5 times for "spare change". They're just lazy beggars they don't walk up to you but just sit there.

    Typical work ethic of the UK no wonder we're falling behind.

    Erm, I don't think being a beggar is typical of anyone in the west, friend.

    you clearly don't get out much. Homelessness is through the roof in London. We have soup kitchens on corner streets. It's fast turning into a third world country.

    It's disgusting nevertheless. Who said i was standing?

    too much poverty in the UK, some can't see what's in front of them. Highlights the level of slavery.

    Why is it that people like you are more bothered about 'falling behind' and battling it out with other economies, than actually making sure that everyone in the country is properly cared for and looked after.

    I need work immediately. Entry level office or clerical job, at least 10/hr, allow me to work nights. I can do weekends. Also I need a new smartphone, muah.

    Globalisation means we are more interconnected than ever before. Only those who have fallen behind would not understand this principle. If we can provide the best we will get the best economy.

    The Victorian poor had no welfare system to fall back on, and they managed well enough without rioting or looting. At least towards the end of the century, the situation of the urban poor was no worse than it is now. What's different today?

    We live in a modern-day society where our socio-economic situation doesn't force us into hard manual/slave labour, the industrial revolution boom burst long ago anyway and a lot of manual labour is obselete hence people would suffer.
