    Yeah. There is a case to argue that the person who spares just those few extra minutes travelling to a polling station will have considered how they vote a little bit more.

    The question would be how you eliminate multiple voting, with people voting online and in person, or multiple locations. It does need sorting though… as it is quite easy for people to vote in two constituencies now, as there is no central system.

    Poorly worded op, as usual from me.

    But are we killing good bacteria as a consequence in our guest to kill harmful germs. Have we become germ adverse which is being played upon by advertisers selling Stuff like bleach and hand gells?

    Too right they are! They help “tolerise” our immune system so it knows what is safe or dangerous so it responds appropriately. 99.99% of the bacteria form a biome that keeps the 0.01% of nasty bacteria in check.

    Has society become too germ adverse that it is becoming unhealthy?

  • No idea if a Casino would let you do this but don’t try it on the online roulette games, I’m convinced they’re rigged to weed out exactly this kind of thing and you’ll lose all your money.

  • I sort of do. Not the exact date, but a pretty good idea of the timeline courtesy of cancer. Strangely, it hasn’t fazed me. In fact, I’ve found it quite liberating as I no longer have half a mind on trying to survive for as long as I can, as that option has been removed. It feels a bit less stressful. As far as financial planning goes, it…[Read more]

    Thanks for your replies guys. I went to see my Doctor and he said that I have plantar fasciitis and said that I need to rest my feet but didn’t really have too much time to explain how I could prevent it from coming back when its healed.

    Hi guys I have slipped on some ice whilst out walking a couple days ago. Whilst I don’t think I have sprained my ankle I have done something to me heel on my right foot and I don’t know what to do. When I first did it it was super painful and inflamed. I did PRICE and it seemed to ease it somewhat, however it still very sore and I cannot properly…[Read more]

  • @andypandy You are missing the point spectacularly, and I thought I was the one with English as their second language….

    The UK government cannot refuse dealing with an asylum application solely for formal reasons, whether the person claiming asylum arrived legally or illegally. They can of course refuse asylum and deport the applicant, but they…[Read more]

  • @andypandy Why? I do not see the relevance of your link to what I have claimed. As I read it, your link says that you have to be in the UK to apply for asylum, but that the UK claims it is not obliged to admit anyone who made it, say, to France to enable them to do so.

    This is not the same as refusing to consider an asylum application for formal…[Read more]

  • @everyone For those thinking that refugees have a duty to apply for asylum in the first safe country they enter… it is a nasty piece of disinformation that is deliberately spread all the time by the usual suspects.

    Presumably the aim is to discredit both the way the EU tries to cope with the refugee crisis, and even more importantly, to blanket…[Read more]
