You don't get it. Yes I do get it It isn't profit Profit is the over-riding factor. Nothing is 100% safe You're preaching to the choir.

Quantify that risk! There's not a man/woman alive that can do that!

Nick, you describe a very sorry, Malthusian condition of your society and maybe the specie.

Betreger, I've never read Malthus, shame on me may be, so you will have to
enlighten me here. So, are you hanging me from the nearest yardarm? he-he.


Nick, my comment was not hanging you from the yardarms. As for the allusion to Malthus I was commenting about the possibility that the population is exceeding the capacity to create the wealth it wants.

Ah, repreved at the last moment, thanks Betreger....

Limits to growth covers what your stating, Betreger; and I do agree with you.
So some time in the future we will have to switch over from wealth creating
to something completely different. But I do suspect though that to maintain
wealth building then some time in the not too distant future population reduction
will be a big agenda issue across the world. This reduction will have to occur
anyway simply because technology will leave us with many idle hands in time. If
not then limits to growth will be experienced sooner than one realises.

The foundations of this country have totally collapsed & require fresh new foundations from scratch, rather than patchwork repairs.

It's all to do with battling with Brussels. Does he do it now and gain short
term poll benefits. Or does he leave it till later making a Europe referendum,
declaration, to be held immediately post next General Election. The latter
should see a majority victory for the Con's in elections during 2015, so will
Cameron bide his time here?

Well why mess about, go and join the National Front or the BNP then if that's your view. However, I rather think you would prefer to sit on the sidelines, without committing yourself one way or the other. If you can't decide which country you live in from one week to the other, we can hardly expect you to make a decision about how it is run.

Oh I don't know so much...... seems like my local MP took onboard a lot of what I said to him on one of his surgeries recently......

...he voted against Del-boy - does that make him a member of the BNP?

Nice to see that my constant flag changing is getting to you.....Switching to Romania next week......

.....then again, it won't make much of a difference within another decade.....

...you'll be one of the minorities......

...& at the end of the day, you only have yourselves to blame!

OK I will have to come clean here, I no longer post here because because I got tired of baiting you. I will say it possibly was also childish, which is why I stopped. I used to read your posts and then try and find something to disagree with, just for sport. It got boring so I stopped.

Thank you. One down, one to go. You think I didn't know you were baiting?

Childish I may be but I wasn't born last night. Thank you for your honesty, it really is genuinely appreciated.

Well they say that politics & that other profession are the oldest on the planet.

Personally, I think both professions are suited to each other & they should get married.

Looks like Boris kept his word. Boris for PM.

Spent a lovely day in London...... nary a bendy bus in sight! Now all he needs to do is sort out his "pals" on the bench to sort out Heathrow.
