Cameron out of step with electorate on Turkey EU membership

Tuesday, 27 July 2010 07:24

David Cameron is totally out of step and out of touch with the electorate in supporting Turkey's entry into the EU.

If Turkey is part of the EU we will be overrun by even more people who will come flooding into the UK under the impression that they will find work and riches. Indeed they will find riches, by claiming child benefit and all sorts of other benefits then sending the cash back to Turkey.

The rest of us will have to house them, feed them and pay for all of it.

Then there is the vexed question of religion. Turkey is a muslim country, and we all know which religion seems to be involved wherever there is unrest or a war going on.

Turkey is not part of Europe, it belongs to the east and as such should join other eastern countries.

Membership for Turkey would be an excellent reason for the UK to leave the EU immediately.

 

Time to scrap child benefit altogether

Wednesday, 21 July 2010 09:39

The time has come to scrap child benefit altogether.

This particular government handout was introduced immediately after the last war for two reasons . . .

  1. To encourage women to have children to replace the men who had been killed in the war
  2. to get women out of the workplace and back into the home. Don't forget that many women were doing jobs formerly done by men because the men were away fighting. When the men came back they needed work.

Since 1946, when the population of the UK was around 47 million there have been radical changes, the country no longer needs to expand its population - the idea is ridiculous. Immigration is a major social issue with the population now around 62 million and set to rise to 70 million because of further immigration and the high birthrate of immigrants.

At the other end of life, the UK government has raised the age at which pensions are paid, and issues scaremongering tales about there not being enough young people to look after an aging population.

The world's problems all stem from one cause, too many people. This is brought about in part by religious objections to birth control, and the catholic church must bear responsibility for the sufferings of millions of deprived people around the world simply because its policy has resulted in their birth.

Politicains need to address population, not climate change or other issues. A start would be the scrapping of child benefit for all children born after 39 weeks from the announcement, and a progressive cut of 5% a year in existing child benefits. That would ensure that existing children were not suddenly cut off, but that new children were the responsibility of their parents.

 

 

What people really want

Tuesday, 20 July 2010 16:38

The UK's coalition government has set up a website for all of us to tell the government what laws we want changed. Here is our chance to say what we want and when we do to expect the government to listen to the people.

Everyone should click the link and visit the site, then, before you forget, write to your MP and tell him or her that you expect the government to listen, take notice and do what the people want, not sweep our ideas under the carpet without consideration.

Here are most popular ideas so far . . .

  • bring back the death sentence
  • repeal drugs prohibition
  • stop collective worship in schools
  • leave the EU
  • allow people to own firearms
  • let teachers use physical punishments
  • ban the police from using Tasers
  • lower the age of criminal responsibility
  • ban the burka
  • repeal bans on handguns and knives
  • freedom to photograph your own children
  • remove CCTV cameras
  • scrap child benefit
