"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."

Who Unlocked The Asylum Gates?

The loonies are out in force this morning over at the DM, perhaps because it's a Bank Holiday and, having taken the government's smog warning to heart, they've decided to stay at home.

Cuddly David Attenborough has once again raised the spectre of Thomas Malthus in an article about population control, climate change and peak oil supply - all the goodies in one basket. He and tv presenter, Chris Packham, seem to think birth control, tax breaks and government-imposed one-child families are worth exploring as ways forward for the UK.

I've got a better idea - a moratorium on immigration and the deportation of illegals.However, there are big bucks to be made in 'saving' the planet and addressing immigration doesn't provide as many opportunities for corporatists, quangos and 'celebrities' to enrich themselves.  They'd rather write books, articles, hold mutual back-slapping seminars and devise get-rich-quick schemes for themselves while appearing to care and do something in a situation where nothing can be done (carbon capture? cap and trade?).

Many commenters seem to agree that the government should get involved and dictate how many children a couple should have, which is bad enough, but the one that caught my eye was this:
"Many experts say that what is needed is free contraception for all. Many years ago I discovered that the womb lining is shed when a woman has her back scratched during love making. Provided this is done once every cycle then what we have is a free contraceptive. ..."
If this is what passes for logical thinking on contraception where this guy comes from (Derbyshire!) no wonder immigrant families are having more babies than the indigenous English.
