    I think Theresa May would be a great PM (bit disappointed she isn't on the 'Out' side of the EU referendum).

    I'm definitely right wing where the whole refugee-crisis is concerned.
    Immigrant-workers? Sure! No problem!
    Refugess up until this whole crisis? Sure! No problem!
    This major refugee-crisis? Eeh, no thanks.

    That is, however, the only thing that colours my political views dark blue.

    I don't believe in *equality* per se.

    And I don't think this obsession in medicinal advancement with keeping people alive at all costs for extended lifespans is beneficial to humanity; and will become very destructive in the future.


    Feel free to harass me on either point.

    Humans have a finite lifespan, I'm not sure why people cannot accept that. I'd love to live forever, but only if I could be completely healthy throughout. Basic immortality ftw. Achieving that sense of immortality is, however, unrealistic.

    Thanks to the advancement of medicine, you can look forward to an extended lifespan at the potential cost of totally losing both your mental and your physical faculties. But if you can't enjoy life, what's the point of living it?

    I'd wager that the millions of people in nursing homes who eat the same food day in day out, are reliant on other people to wash them and wipe their arses, and are completely unaware of who anyone is due to their ailing mental status, would welcome the ending of their existence. I know I would.

    A quick death is better than a slow decline. It's why I plan on going out Roman Bath style as soon as I'm too old to look after myself.

    That's a most excellent expansion on my point!

    I'm still rather sad Assisted dying / euthanasia was blocked for reform for much the same reasons personally.
    Whilst being 100 and being able to see a few more years of what could be monumental scientific advancement that I'd otherwise miss, as you say, not unless I was essentially immortal and could enjoy it; being crippled and non-functioning as the case is likely to be brings me no joy.

    And to add a caveat to my point, it's the social sustainability side that worries me too. We're getting vastly older by the generation, but our productivity above a certain age is not rising. If generation X and Y live till over 100; then from the usual retirement age that can be 40y and rising - that's essentially another adult lifetime, but with likely no means of supporting it. It's unlikely that most are capable of saving enough to be cared for extensively at those ages, and to push that burden onto younger generations will only be much worse.

    It's all a very difficult thing to resolve however.

    I just find it so annoying. I get if no one's on the bus, but when it's packed and you want to be that guy who plays a song and don't even consider if it will bother everyone else.

    So you want to make it much harder for people like me to move away from home, live independently, go to university and/or start working? Terrible idea.

    I think that the railway system should be nationalised
    additionally:
    .I support Trump because of his mandate
    .I think that maternity leave should only apply after 2/3 years of work, and small business shouldn't have to pay it.
    .I think that women should get the same punishment for the same crime (so times their sentence by 2-5 times longer)
    .I think that men should get the rights that women and men don't, thus I would ban male circumcision (however this isn't unpopular, I passed it as Bill here I guess)
