    I guy I know told me a story about an apprentice he took on who lived in a smoggy estate in Leeds.
    He smelt really bad, and it turned out he was living in his van. His family had kicked him out for the shame of getting a job......

    A Conservative MP has apologised for a 2012 blog post in which he suggested benefit claimants should have vasectomies.
    Of course he has apologised.

    Benefit claimants/low IQ folks are the biggest tory voters. Can't say anything bad about your own electorate.


    Kidding aside, I think only people with a certain IQ and income level should be allowed to procreate. Thing is a lot of these people are smart enough to know they're better off without offsprings.

    Why confine this to homo sapiens? Why not have every animal of every species pass such a test?

    It generally does happen. Indeed with humans it used to be that way until about 100 years ago.

    These days it seems to be survival of the fattest rather than survival of the fittest.....

    If you count a pension as being a benefit...

    Financially better off as individuals, yes, and better for the environment. The earth's resources are overstretched, and the current solution of cutting down trees/killing animals to allow humans to make more money is not in the best interests of the planet or its inhabitants.

    Personally I quite like the green party proposal of cutting the UK population down to 40million by education - what they believe is the environmentally sustainable population.

    No doubt if they actually got into power they would just do the same as every other government. With a green spin.

    Is the plan to bring back corporal punishment, then update it to capital punishment?

    The last I heard a green party member speak they wanted to encourage people to work in the fields, back to nature. We had this question a little while back and the industrial revolution won.
