Are you saying you would give a full time job to an already-pregnant lady, who you would then be duly obliged to fund maternity pay at 90% of full pay for 6 weeks and a further £138 per week for 33 weeks?

"The war is not meant to be won, it is meant to be continuous. Heirarchical society is only possible on the basis of poverty and ignorance. This new version is the past and no different past can ever have existed. In principal the war effort is always planned to keep society on the edge of starvation. The war is waged by the ruling group against its own subjects and its object is not victory over Eurasia or East Asia, but to keep the very structure of society intact"
Now Orwell's prediction is not 100% correct, but his "permanent war" is not far from the truth, enemies are created out of groups that "we" once supported, and the war goes on, and on.
there are no real solutions, because a real solution is not desirable to governments.
Well Alex Salmond, you tried to unite your little country, and all you did was divide it. and in doing so you gave the ruling elite the perfect excuse to divide the rest of the UK. The only outcome is that with this divided country the right wing will keep control, and any socially respectful policies will be forced out to the expense of the nasty policies that we have had over this government.
You realised that this almighty mess, for anyone with a bit of social conscious, is your creation, so what do you do.....Yeh just walk away..... Coward.
The old quote is true
Patriotism is the last refuge of the Scoundral
You will find the SNP has been around for donkey's years it's not Salmond's creation
Being an MP isn't just another job, though. MPs are there to serve, as representatives of the public, most of whom will earn nowhere near the salary of an MP.
If the generous salary and expenses aren't enough for any of them, in my view they aren't in it for the right reasons to start with and begone with 'em.
No matter what party they represent, MPs ought to have at least one foot firmly planted in the reality of the lives of those they seek to serve, and be prepared to practice what they preach too. So if austerity, belt-tightening and wage restraint is to be the mantra for the masses, it must also be the mantra for them.
Life is tough, and living and working in London in particular is an expensive business for everyone. MPs should not see themselves as a protected species, though most of them clearly do.
Maybe they could consider tackling some of the reasons living and working in London is so unaffordable, rather than expecting to be protected from that reality by ever higher salaries and expenses allowances for themselves.
That might begin to earn them a degree of respect, instead of the general contempt they are viewed in these days.
Nothing can be done about that, it's determined by "the market" which is an occult force working outside of the control of mere mortals. Ask Northern Sol, he's a hi poobah or adept, or something.
A big guy, well armed and aggressive moves into a little guys house, and proceeds to throw him out. The little guy fights back with whatever he has to hand.
It's this simple, weasel words from either side won't change this . The Palestinians are desperate and in Hamas are seeking desperate solutions.
Two sides Hamas proclaiming allegiance to the only true prophet of god and Jewish fundamentalists claiming to be the chosen people of the same god.
I know where my sympathies lie, with Palestinian people being pogrommed against. I appreciate the historical imperative that makes the Jewish people so adamant that they will never be pushed around again but they are a nation acting under a psychosis they have lost their humanity and destroyed the humanity of those they are oppressing.
They need to talk to each other but those on each side who would talk are sidelined and often assassinated.
The poor Jews and the Palestinians need to find a common cause against the right wing idiots on both sides.
You may well stand by every word, but that does not make you right, Indeed, it increases the chances of you being wrong on many other issues, too and certainly reduces your credibility..and you were doing so well.
Well obviously my credibility with a load of people I've never met is a major issue to me.
