    Yeah, you would exclude no-one and place no cap. You're an extremist, admit it and stop pretending otherwise

    Try treating a broken leg with Calpol to save money and you’ll pay for it in the long run.

    There’ll be a Tory doing so somewhere along the line.

    Probably owns the chemist and it’s his mate that produces the stuff…..as recommended by Baroness Mone of Tittyland

    Although the wind isnt blowing it is worth remembering the energy it isnt generating is 9 times cheaper than the energy that is.

    United Kingdom no longer a Christian country, ie less than 50% of people describe themselves as Christian.

    Enjoy.

    Would’ve thought that was the case a while ago. How many people go to church even once a year?

    At a guess not many, however they still manage to keep large swathes of property/land and cash, maybe could put the Albanians in some of it

    Most people calling themselves Christian don’t go to church regularly if at all. The interesting thing about this is that over half the population don’t identify at all with Christianity. Massive fall from 2011 census, when 59.3% ticked Christian, to 46.2% now. Almost all accounted for by a corresponding rise in people who said they had ‘no religion’, which presumably covers both atheists and agnostics. Muslims rise to 6.5% from 4.9%, much fewer than the impression given by some media outlets.

    Personally, speaking as a non practising Christian, it doesn't bother me that Christians have dropped below 50% so long as religions that make up the rest of the UK, have basically the same values. I think Jews, Hindus, Sikhs and Buddhists do. Islamists have something to prove in my eyes because of the regularity of militarism we see in some sections of that community. Fortunately they make up only 5% of the population, but they're the fastest growing religion.

    Lucky we left the EU or we’d have freedom of movement with Turkey.

    Most religions are pretty ****, in my opinion, and I always count myself as not believing in any of it as it’s just another way of asserting some control over people.
    However, it does seem that Christians are allowed to be mocked without any comeback whatsoever....but if the same was done to other religions then you’d be accused of the worst kind of “phobia” known to man, and could quite literally lose your head.......it’s a strange world we live in

    Don't Christians believe in "turn the other cheek" ? Fair game if they're not prepared to put up a fight for their imaginary friend
