Should the Government save the British Steel Industry?It's a funny thing how the Chinese waited until they could really see the total collapse of our steel industry with the threat of all these hard working people being out of jobs to impose a massive tax on their steel! So now they have us "by the shorts". Britain should step up the steel industry big time and give them the "two finger" salute - similarly I believe we should re-constitute out manufacturing of everything in this country and put the Great back into Great Britain again.Tinkers commented on:
Should it be illegal to smack your child?Depends on where you smack them! I saw a woman the other day hitting her child around the head continuously - not a good idea but a short sharp shock smack to the legs or anywhere which is not dangerous doesn't hurt. Kids always got a wallop years ago and I wouldn't say they have all grown up with psychological problems. They just learned where the boundaries were which many these days do not.Tinkers commented on:
Should Britain stay in the EU or is now the time to leave?When we voted to go into the Common Market many years ago, there were advantages but the whole ethos has changed and now we are ruled by a load of faceless individuals who never stop thinking of stupid laws to impose on us. For this privilege we pay a vast amount of money each day which could be used to improve all our services and put the Great into Great Britain again!Tinkers commented on:
Should over 70s have to retake their driving test?Our reactions are definitely slower as we age and it should be mandatory for GPs to inform DVLA of problems that people encounter with their health which may affect their ability to drive even if the patients themselves do not inform the authorities.
