    Thread reopened - with a few posts deleted. I would refer you to https://politicspoliticalforum.com/t...66#post1256366 and say that, of course humour is subjective, but several posts went beyond being acceptable on an online forum.

Not being able to get pregnant isn't an illness.
    i hesitate to engage on discussions like this seeing how ridiculously easy it was to get Sarah and Jennifer...

    But I think given what I know about a certain Nordic chaps research into male infertility, I think not being able to get a woman pregnant MIGHT be a medical condition, and possibly one caused by chemical industry negligence ...

    "The Inland Revenue is not slow, and quite rightly, to take every advantage which is open to it under the Taxing Statutes for the purposes of depleting the taxpayer's pocket. And the taxpayer is in like manner entitled to be astute to prevent, so far as he honestly can, the depletion of his means by the Inland Revenue"

    Fertility Rates Are Now Falling in Half The World's Countries


    KRISTIN HOUSER, FUTURISM
    9 NOV 2018



    People just aren't making babies like they used to.
    This week, The Lancet published a new report on global fertility rates from 1950 to 2017.
    Based on their research, people across the globe are giving birth to fewer children than they did in the past — and the impact on society could be catastrophic.

    So that means we either develop more sophisticated defence systems or the barbarians inherit the earth.
    The new parliamentary democracy,it's not the will of the people that counts but the will of 650......will come back to haunt them.

    That reads as alluding to a free service to me .
