Politics, often the root cause of many an argument but a necessary evil nonetheless

I am soooo unsure what box to tick in the elections and I am actually a little stressed about it - yes I am aware that that is a majorly sad thing to admit to!

Trouble is I firmly believe that not caring and not voting is wrong. Someone has to run the country and since I live here, I want to be involved in the democracy of choosing who gets the job.

The problem I have is that I am struggling to find a candidate that I can hand on heart say I agree with and want to follow the policies of. 

The trouble with conservative is that they are too hoity toity and not in the real world enough being public schoolboys and all that

The trouble with labour is that they are too communistic and they picked Ed Miliband as a leader - who can take that man seriously, he looks and sounds like Wallace from Wallace & Gromit FFS

The trouble with the lib dems is that they sit on the fence too much and change their ideals too much to try and please whomever they are dealing with at the time

I don't think I need to air my concerns over UKIP considering their stance on homosexuality and their racism

I just don't like any of them. It's very depressing :-((

I have returned
I'm pretty sure it's been well over a year since I checked-in on Ladslads, but I have to say I've missed the banter! I haven't even been in any sort of relationship within the past year (still young, free and single!), so I guess my only real excuse is that I've been focusing on my degree.

How are you all doing anyway? I used to be a very active blogger/user on here, but I know that 12+ months can erase even the most notorious Ladslad from memory.

I need to find somewhere to live in Birmingham/Coventry!
Hey Guys!

Found out that I have gotten onto a work placement near Solihull in September, which is exciting as fuck!

Now though, I have to find a place to live nearby...

Been looking at some places around, but was wondering, do you guys have any advice on where is best to live? I need to be within easy commuting distance, so looking for nice areas of Birmingham, Coventry and surrounding towns!

Also, does anybody know of any houses that have rooms available in August-September, or even anybody who is looking for a roommate?

Scotland's got what it takes to be independent

Responding to today’s publication of the latest Government Expenditure and Revenue Scotland report [GERS], Blair Jenkins, Chief Executive of Yes Scotland, said:

"What these figures show is that Scotland has one of the best sets of national accounts of any country in the developed world.

"They also clearly underline that Scotland has got what it takes to be a strong, independent nation and that our future will be built on robust financial foundations.

"The figures show that Scotland generates a bigger share of UK taxes than we get as a share of UK spending.

"Scotland’s finances have been healthier than the UK’s for a number of years now. Our opponents in the No campaign would be doing the people of Scotland a service if they admitted that."

Congratulations to the Lads of Ladsalads

You've all probably heard or seen something about the use of driverless cars on British roads (old news, yes)
The link below is an article of Boris Johnson giving the go ahead for the testing of driverless cars on London roads.
http://uk.reuters.com/article/2015/02/11/uk-britain-autos-driverless-idUKKBN0LF00D20150211

Unbeknown to the lads on here and myself, until quite recently, we have someway influenced government, i.e. the office of The Mayor of London no less.
How?
Below is a link to a blog, that originated on here.
http://www.ladslads.com/blogs/view/2014/September/south_east/this_could_be_possible_within_a_decade/383534
Debated amongst ourselves, the Pros & Cons or even if the possibility of government giving the go ahead.
Until last weekend, the two had no real reconnection other than just coincidental.

I crossed paths with a friend I hadn't seen in while, on the weekend of last, a catch up and a pint was called for.
September of last year, when I last saw him, we had plans and I was running slightly late, waiting in my front room he'd noticed the blog displayed on my iPad and asked if I would send him a copy so could have a gander, as requested a few days later I did so, then forgot about it, over a few sherries and cucumber sandwiches, the subject of driverless cars cropped up, he had read the blog, liked it and thought, you know what? Someone higher up should take notice of this, so on a whim, he email it to the office of the Mayor of London, not thinking he'd get a response but low and behold, a reply was received.
Now at this point, he leans on the table and says " you know how eager some scumbags are to climb so far up their boss's ass they'd disappear, that email had been passed around from office to office until this guy replies, well I think some guy who read that email has took credit for that blog"
"How so?" I enquired.
" you'll see when I show you the emails"
A few minutes later I'm reading a negative reply to the email he had sent, basically saying it wasn't a viable idea at the present moment.
"Notice the dates?" he says
"Yeah, so what am I looking for?"
"Boris Johnson's announcement was in February of this year, they rejected your idea in October last year, what's the betting, that some little snot bag, went and pedalled that idea to someone higher up as his own?"

Conspiracy theory alert, coincidence or not, it's open for debate, but I'd like to think that the opinions of the lads on ladslads go just a little bit further than just amongst ourselves.



Our ref: 1014875103/DI


Date: 14.10.2014


Dear Mr M********

Thank you for contacting the Mayor with your idea for a fleet of driverless London taxis. This has been brought to my attention at Transport for London to offer a response.

Your idea for the introduction of driverless taxi cabs was very interesting, although it may be slightly too early to implement a scheme to introduce these vehicles at this time . The driverless Honda mentioned in the article has only just been tested as a prototype, and there is currently no proposed date to begin selling these vehicles on a large scale. Although the development of these vehicles appears promising, they are not ready to be introduced across a city such as London.

I have notified the relevant TfL departments of this article, and our development team will continue to monitor the progress of these driverless vehicles. These driverless cabs may not be ready for mass production in the near future, but you can rest assured that TfL will be analysing the possibility of introducing these cabs if and when this time comes.

Thank you for taking the time to contact us. Please contact me again if you need any further assistance, or if you would prefer to talk to us about this matter, please call us on 0343 222 1234.

Kind regards

Daniel Itzcovitz

So, what are your thoughts on the current discussion that the parties are avoiding the deficit problems with the NHS, which is what the former boss suggests is happening.

There's a predicted shortfall of £30bn by 2020, and we have yet to make up another £8bn towards this.

I'm particularly amused at the fact UKIP feel they'll spend another £3bn on the NHS, but where is this money going to come from?
Although UKIP feel leaving the EU will give us a NET saving of around £10bn a year, i can see some sense to this.

In order for us to make significant savings, their are two main areas where this could be achieved. Firstly HS2 which is £50bn, and only benefits Londoners, and Trident which nobody wants, at a cost of a further £20bn.

It will take 100 years for the world’s poorest people to earn $1.25 a day
Image and video hosting by TinyPic

A few weeks ago economist David Woodward tackled this question in an article published in the World Economic Review. His findings are shocking. He shows that, given our existing economic model, poverty eradication can’t happen. Not that it probably won’t happen, but that it physically can’t. It’s a structural impossibility.

Let’s assume that we can maintain the fastest rate of income growth that the poorest 10% of the world’s population have ever enjoyed over the past few decades. That was between 1993 and 2008 – after the debt crisis of the 1980s that crippled much of the developing world and before the banking collapse of 2008. During that period, their incomes increased at a rate of 1.29% each year.

So how long will it take to eradicate poverty if we extrapolate this trend? 100 years.

As if the 100-year timeline isn’t disappointing enough, it gets worse. A growing number of scholars are beginning to point out that $1.25/day – which is the official poverty line of the SDGs – is actually not adequate for people to survive on. In reality, if people are to meet their most basic needs and achieve normal human life expectancy, they need closer to $5/day. How long would it take to eradicate poverty at this more accurate line? 207 years.

horrible infanticide
Just been reading in the news (ok admittedly, this was the daily mail so its likely to be a tad exaggerated and right wing)about some mad woman who got post natal depression, decided her 3 week old baby girl was a devil in disguise and decapitated her after stabbing her multiple times!
Where the hell is the social support that should have prevented this tragedy?

What do you think?is it fit or not?
Ppl on dating sites keep telling me that how much they like my body. The thing is that im skinny, and i dont mind that at all. Altough in life ppl keep telling me that i should eat something :) (In addition i have to mention that i can eat as much i want as many times i want the only result will be bigger amount of...you know that right what lol:).
So basically i cant put any weight on. Once more! I dont mind being skinny. I have been always like this and probably will be.

Now my question is: What do you think about skinny ppl. Are they attractive? What type of body do you like and why?
(oh one more thing...many many fat,chubby ppl message me that they like my bodytype but also there are some of these ppl who kinda agressively messages me saying that im gross they wouldnt even touch me and i make them puke. What i think is that ppl with few extra pounds or chubby,fat ppl are either jealous or dont like the fact that im not interested at them. No offence! :))
Here is my indeed skinny upper body to grab your attention :3 /hell yeah! u can start attacking me now :D /

Debating Corner - The Far Right.
Into my final year of university, I'm writing my dissertation and doing a variety of exams and essays and what the who not. This year I'm trying to specialise in "The Far Right" (I.e. Ukip, Le Front National, Finns Party etc)

So, why not have a little debate to liven up the site and get your brains a-pumping this Monday evening?

One of my upcoming presentations circles entirely on the far right, its ideology and its workings. So, salad lads - can you tell me:

"Is the far-right an ideologically coherent party family?"

As some of you who keep up avidly with my life will know (please stop that, by the way), I am a supporter of the Green Party of England and Wales. It's been gathering steam recently, beating the Lib Dems in numerous elections and polling on average at 7%.

So here's your question, lads of LadsLads: Are Green Parties protest anti-system parties?

The Dark Secrets That Dolphins Don't Want You to Know

10.7k1.7k2

By Miriam Goldstein


It never fails. Every single cocktail party, as soon as someone finds out that I'm a graduate student studying marine biology, they ask, "So, do you get to play with dolphins?" Since my heart is as black and cold as the oceanic abyss, I usually take this opportunity to disillusion yet another poor soul of their childhood fantasy of Mystical Dolphin Love .

 

Dolphins are not gentle or psychic. If they could talk they would not impart eco-wisdom or deep spiritual truth. Dolphins are violent predators with a predilection for baby killing and rape. I feel it's my duty to warn you, despite the risk of insulting creatures made of hundreds of pounds of muscle and rows of sharp teeth. Throw out your rainbow dolphin painting , and check out dolphins' low-down dirty secrets:

--Dolphin sex can be violent and coercive. Gangs of two or three male bottlenose dolphins isolate a single female from the pod and forcibly mate with her, sometimes for weeks at a time. To keep her in line, they make aggressive noises, threatening movements, and even smack her around with their tails. And if she tries to swim away, they chase her down. Horny dolphins have also been known to target human swimmers -Demi Moore is rumored to have had a close encounter of the finny kind.

--Dolphins kill harbor porpoise babies. In Scotland, scientists found baby harbor porpoises washed up with horrific internal injuries. They thought the porpoises might have been killed by weapons tests until they found the toothmarks. Later, dolphins were caught on film pulping the baby porpoises-the dolphins even used their ecolocation to aim their blow at the porpoises' vital organs.

--Dolphins kill their own babies. Baby dolphins have washed up alongside the dead porpoises, and some scientists think that all the porpoise-slaughter was just practice for some old-fashioned infanticide . For other mammals like lions, killing the babies makes the females immediately ready for the next pregnancy, and maybe that's the case with dolphins, too.

The scariest part is dolphins can wreak havoc day and night without sleeping. A recent study found that dolphins could stay awake for five days straight with no loss of mental acuity. The dolphins didn't even need to make up sleep at the end of the study, though the scientists sure did.

If the dolphins ever evolve thumbs , we're in trouble. It will be like a slasher-film remake of Douglas Adams' So Long And Thanks for All The Fish . If I wash up with pulped innards and dolphin tooth marks, you'll know why. After all, you never hear about the people the dolphins push out to sea.

The more I read the news, the more atheist I become

Just been reading an article about an incrediably selfish b$tch of a mother who felt her faith for a really stupid religion was more important than the tiny helpless indivdual she had created and just brought into this (somewhat horrible) world (even more horrible without a mother). WTF was she thinking?!

New Mother Chooses Death Over Life-Saving Blood Transfusion; Fellow Jehovah’s Witnesses Praise Her Faith

March 24, 2015 by 192 Comments

We know that Jehovah’s Witnesses are forbidden from receiving blood transfusions, even if it’s necessary to save their lives. While I think that’s ridiculous, I generally don’t care if people refuse those transfusions, focusing my rage instead on people who allow their children to die because of their religious beliefs.

But this story makes me reconsider all that.

A JW mother named Michelle recently gave birth to a girl, Emma Marie, but she lost a lot of blood in the process. Normally, blood transfusions prevent this from being a life-threatening issue, but Michelle refused… and her life ended soon afterwards.

Read more: http://www.patheos.com/blogs/friendlyatheist/2015/03/24/new-mother-chooses-death-over-life-saving-blood-transfusion-fellow-jehovahs-witnesses-praise-her-faith/#ixzz3VODtHjIz

Well while delivering Emma; Michelle lost a lot of blood. So much so that she needed a blood transfusion. Michelle refused. Even after having a tube inserted in her and not being able to speak… She signed NO BLOOD. Our dear sister despite finally having the baby she’s wanted for such a long time, remained loyal to the end.

The other comments on the post praise her devotion with nobody asking the obvious question: “WTF?! Doesn’t anyone else see a problem with this?!”

John Cedars, a longtime JW watchdog, can’t believe this is still happening:

As a former Witness, it is shocking to think I would once have either tried excusing or endorsing such mindless comments, or even offered similar sentiments myself. If the coercion in Watchtower literature is potent enough to allow a mother to excuse herself from her baby daughter’s life out of misplaced feelings of loyalty, it is certainly strong enough to make an otherwise intelligent person try to rationalize such a senseless loss of precious human life and put a positive spin on it.

I can only hope that little Emma Marie doesn’t grow up to blame herself, or her mother, for what has happened. Blame for this outrage lies squarely on the shoulders of a group of deluded, cloistered men in Brooklyn who have the power to save lives right now by lifting the needless ban on blood, but refuse to.

Don’t expect the Governing Body of Jehovah’s Witnesses to make any changes anytime soon. Religious leaders cherish tradition over common sense, even if it means saving a mother’s life.

She even said to me in the car the other day, "I guess I shouldn't hope for that", after seeing my cousin's children.

I just sent a message to my brother - not spoken in 5 years...
To cut a very long story short:
- Parents divorced when I was 10 (brother was 12)
- I moved in with Mom, brother stayed with Dad
- Brother stopped talking to Mom at 13, I still visited Dad
- I left for Uni in 2010, Dad didn't speak to me again

In 2012, my brother's fiancé invited me to their wedding, two weeks prior, via Facebook. I declined.

It's now 2015, and I have just sent my brother a Facebook message saying "Hi Joe".

And now I am panicking.

Reassurance needed.
If you want the entire story, message me *bare in mind, it's boring and depressing*

Dolce and habana v Ellon john
After reading today's newspapers I was distressed to read that Elton John and his partner calling for a boycott on Dolce & Gabanna products simply because they had there own opinion on same sex parents. They have been branded homophobic a which is that what it comes down to when you have a
different opinion of a setup of the same sexuality how strange. Simply because you have an opinion on a certain subject as I have many it doesn't mean it's a war.

I personally don't like the type of gays who hide away and try and live the straight life never to face up to what they are. The cowards those not brave enough to stand up and say I'm different deal with because it's better to be hated for something you are, rather than that's being loved for something I'm not. But those views don't make me homophobic it makes me opinionated.

Dolce and Gabanna are not the only people who think rent a womb is unnatural that a child needs both a mother and a father, that it's selfish to have a child just because you want one . People neglect to notice the child's feelings and what effect it would have on the child. I for one believe people are going to have there own opinions and Elton john needs to deal with that he is the public eye so people will focus on him

There's enough homophobia in the world without pushing the word. Around among ourselves

Support for TGEU

I never realised that there were 34 countries in the EU who force transgender individuals to meet three criteria if they want gender reassignment, the three criteria being divorce (if married), certification of mental illness and sterilisation! Yes sterilisation! This is barbaric and smacks of a hitler regime! Thank god people are fighting back.

Sports and the LGBT community...
So with the 6 Nations in full blast at the moment I thought this would be a good time to talk about the LGBT community in sport.

As far as Rugby goes there is only one Gay man who is well known in the field and thats the old welsh captain. There is so many rumours about who could be gay and what not.

Football is becoming more acceptable but is still far behind many other sports.

Now I play Ultimate frisbee... yes I know everyone laughs at it but it is a lot more intense than it sounds. But to me Ultimate frisbee is the most LGBT friendly sport of all. The game is based on equality and race, sex, sexuality and religion does not come into the sport. There are many members of the LGBT community in Ultimate frisbee and everyone is very accepting of the fact and actually love it.

So why can Ultiamte be so accepting but yet rugby, football and many other sports are not?

Who do you think may be LGBT in a sport?

If you are not a member of any sports team and would really like to be but you are afraid of ridicule... pick up a Ultimate disc throw around with your friends and maybe if you have the confidents to go.. join a team, it was the best thing I think I have done in my whole uni life. The people are so supportive, our team consists of 68 members, 38 content, I am VC for the second time, the captain is Bi as well, we have 6 other members that are from the LGBT community... and well the rest are a bit loss on it and will get with anyone haha... so get on it guys ;)

PARTY HARD!

view on marriage
On 20th september I got married to the most wonderful lad ever :) x

Before I met my husband I didnt really want to get married. When I met him I changed my mind but I still knew that not much would change as we love each other exactly the same as before. But now im starting to see a part of what marriage is about. We feel more of a family now rather than a couple/boyfriends. In the next couple of years we are even going to adopt and make our family complete.

What is your thought on marriage?
If you are married then what has changed for you?

:) xxxxx
