    Saw the title and the definition provided, instantly looked for a requirement of Blonde Hair and Blue Eyes.

    An obvious Nay.

    I don't see why this would have any reference to non-genetic factors. I'm not inherently opposed to the idea though.

    It's bold, I'll give you that.

    I feel if we're going to implement eugenics, we should do it more competently and scientifically than these arbitrary phases.

    The **** is wrong with you....

    The last person who did something like this in a country ended up turning it into a fascist regime.

    It's authoritarian, it's applying Darwinism to humans, which makes it absolutely out of the question.

    Nay - obviously.

    I doubt it, this is hardly the first bill Unown has put forward showing his totalitarian tendencies.

    I don't see why having been used in Nazi Germany should be considered to automatically make a policy untenable.

    Nice to see UKIP continue to get inspiration for their bills from Nazi Germany.
