Sodding government trying to mess with the BBC again... This would mean less or even no advert free quality children programmes.

As a product of listen with mother and watch with mother, this assault is tantamount to sacrilege

Absolutely no need for these in products... We need to catch up with the rest of the world and ban them.  

Brits please sign up.
Sign the petition: The prime minister must follow world leaders like Barack Obama and ban highly polluting microbeads immediately

We don't need palm oil in all our products... 
BLD, a palm oil company, is destroying irreplaceable habitat and setting off a veritable carbon bomb by draining and burning 14,000 hectares of peat forest in the Malaysian state of Sarawak. Local activists are calling on the state’s Chief Minister to stop this crime against the planet. Please lend them your voice.

We are going to need to maintain our carbon sinks more aggressively, this logging does us no long term benefit, just quick profits . 
Lush rainforest covers much of the Central African Republic. Yet civil war and illegal logging are taking their toll, with brutal militias funding their operations by collecting protection money from criminal loggers. Most of the illicit timber is destined for Europe. Call on the EU to ban imports of blood timber from CAR.

I thought surely this is BS, but no its real .   People get pleasure from it...  
 
Put a stop to the Turkey Trot Festival! Turkeys are dropped from a plane to their death. 
For years, a town has thrown turkeys from planes and watched them plummet to their deaths at an annual festival. This tradition is both horrifically violent and an illegal act of animal cruelty. Prevent turkeys from being killed at this year's festivities by signing the petition.

Can I please ask people to sign up on this.   I'm personally affected by these changes and cuts......  I'll loose my lower rate of carers allowance under this scheme.  

Currently needing help to dress upper and lower bodies have the same weighting.    Under this new scheme.  You get 8 points if you need help with both points if you need help with upper body, but only 3 points if you need assistance with dressing the lower portion.  (which I do)  .

Also hygiene is taking a hit, basically if you can rub a sponge over your chest you can wash yourself.. I need help with my lower body .

I'll lose twenty pounds or so a week.   Which supplements my daughters income as she is my carer.   She already looses out on parts of a social life.  Works irregular hours to fit things in.

I paid National Insurance for many years up until and industrial injury. 
My income dropped for £600 a week to £108 plus £21 carers allowance.   My pension fund is buggered.   Thats £3.22 an hour equivalent.  I do not recieve housing benefit, and py my own bills.

If you crashed your car today, would you accept a second hand fiat 500 from your insurance company as a replacement for your car..

Thats what Iain Duncan Smith and his scumbags want.  A return to the workhouse.

Yet another example of a religion of peace.

Yes Yes Yes,    all religions need to support the use of all birth control methods,  the evidence that educating women and giving them access to birth control reduces the population growth.    

To take any other stance is just hypocritical.   The level of the worlds population determines our demand for resources.

Introduction
I think the world is grossly over populated with humans, that the capitalist outlook/concept is flawed, continual growth is impossible on a planet with finite resources.

I am a Naturalist in the sense that Naturalism is the "hypothesis that the natural world is a closed system" in the sense that "nothing that is not a part of the natural world affects it." As such, "naturalism implies that there are no supernatural entities," such as gods, angels, demons, ghosts, or other spirits, "or at least none that actually exercises its power to affect the natural world. And without miraculous interventions into nature from a spiritual realm, neither prayer nor magic are more effective than a placebo.


I am also a Freethinker. From wiki: Freethought holds that individuals should not accept ideas proposed as truth without recourse to knowledge and reason


I am not an atheist, as that allows that a god may exist. or some other forms of supernatural beings may exist. I do not. I lack a soul, or the belief in one.


We are a product of evolution and have no more purpose on this planet than a grain of sand on a beach, . We are a very selfish species who deludes daily itself, if we genuinely loved our children and grandchildren we would stop living the way we do.


My Favourite Quote: The reasonable man adapts himself to the world; the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore, all progress depends on the unreasonable man. George Bernard Shaw

I also like to study the Sengoko period in Japan (The warring states era)  .  and The Peninsular Campaign and Waterloo.
