    But where does this stop then?
    I agree, it sounds stupid, but everyone could argue that something was too important to be taxed for whatever reason.
    In theory i do agree, yes, but in practice there isn't much that people would say isn't essential.

    Hahaha!!! I'm not in peacehaven at the moment!
    I'm at college in Lewes (Doh!).
    I refuse to sign it on the grounds that i don't agree enough to make me want to put my name on a petition about it.

    Cos I was curious I went on the BNP's website and this worries me:

    "The people of the British Isles are some of the most clever, most ingenious people and inventive people in the world"

    Hello? Hitler? Can you hear me?

    Good God. Is the UK's population so daft/poor that they need the State to encourage wearing and pay for their condoms?

    I suppose the Government could go a step further and set up a new "agency for sexual wellbeing". They could send representitives to bedrooms around the country and supervise sex, starting by making sure the condom is properly "donned" etc

    What a pathetic country.

    That's true isn't it? Historically, I should think the Brits have invented rather more than their fair share of stuff havn't they?

    They should do it in America, that is if they haven't already since the States has a pretty high underage pregnancy rate.

    Er hello. Actually I think you'll find there was proportionally a lot less STD and teenage pregnancy BEFORE condoms were given away and formalized sex education was made a part of the school curriculum than there is today.

    Yes, but that was due more to changes in social attitudes towards sex rather than purely because of the education available. Imagine if society was as permissive about sex as it is currently, but there was no sex education or freely available contraceptives!?!
