Institute for Fiscal Studies warns the "long-run costs" of the pandemic will hit children disproportionately.
BBC....what a joke! No HYS on the EU vaccine debacle or Article 16 re NI.

Your pro EU stance has never been so apparent!

Not always a defender of the BBC but HYS was open on this for much of the weekend.

Indeed BBC and especially Katie Adler have been more than forthright on EU difficulties with this.

Just because you didn't see something doesn't mean it didn't happen.

It was on last week & over the weekend. Literally you could have commented in the last 24hrs.

The war time generation lost much of their schooling for 5 years. Somehow they succeeded in producing the industrialists, scientists and professionals that our society thrived on in the 1950s and 1960s. Fighting for what you want in life can be very character building. Ask Captain Tom.

The bigger problem is that mass, uncontrolled immigration is costing UK workers £100,000s over their lifetimes!

How about a discussion on that?

Yeah, that isn't true at all, most migrants add value to the economy of the host country rather than cost us money:

It's not costing anything as those too are UK workers, or do you just mean white British ones? In any case that immigration is needed because the jobs are beneath the entitled UK workers, as you call them, otherwise there wouldn't be a need for immigrates. Don't confuse immigrants with refugees.

We don't have mass, uncontrolled immigration, we never have. These are conspriacy theories. Plus, immigrants contribute to the UK economy eaulkly if not more so that residents, they're a benefit. Only racists and xenophobes deny this.

oh dear. You went there didnt you. What uncontrolled immigration are you talking of? The EU one that we signed up to that gave free movement to other EU members from some of the richest economies in the world or the made up one that involves thousands of people entering the govenrment and avoiding our immigration rules?

I'm not sure that it is over all. I agree that it should be discussed, and there are some jobs that certainly have lost out to immigrants; builders, plumbers, etc. However they also boost the economy and create other jobs and *increase* income of some, I know a building developer who (pre covid) said that employing immigrants enabled him to grow much quicker than if he waited for UK workers.

There are some people who bring immigration into a lot of these discussions. Some immigrants are better educated than some UK people and are assets to the workplace. If I were an employer, I would prefer to have them, rather than some of the Brits I have met.

There is clearly a left wing agenda at work, only half the facts are reported. Most migrants do contribute. However thanks to migration, Britain has to spend £8Billion every year on counter terrorism trying to prevent migrants or the children of migrants blowing us up, hacking us to death or deliberately running us over.

Ok so you think all terrorists are migrants? well first of all that is racist, second of all more terrorism is caused by nationalism or republicanism in the UK by white residents than what is caused by migrants.

don't let that right wing racist agenda get in the way

There's another T missing from the end for those of us who identify as a tomato.
There is a man who lives near me who is going to dress as a woman and declare himself female.The Scottish govt will allow him access to female only facilities like dressing rooms female prisons,female football team dressing rooms etc etc.
If anyone challenges this man entering female spaces they can be accused of hate crime.
If anyone offers an opinion they can be guilty of hate/non hate crime

Well at least Labour are continuing with their demand that teachers (and other groups) get higher vaccination priority.

Not content with shooting themselves in the foot, they're now poking the wound with dirty fingers. Gangrene setting in?

Groups given lower priority to make way for teachers deserve to know who they are, to know Labour considers their lives less worthy.
To be honest I'm impressed that they've managed to convert their entire party to full on Naziism without any major objections. Their entire platform is based upon 'grouping of people' now. Like the Nazis did with Juden, Roma, Nobility, Socialists. etc. I guess all we need now is to see their agenda with regards to the groups they've defined. I'm guessing it'll be my group who gets gassed. Removed
Is a biological man who dresses as a female a man or a woman.
If he declares himself a trans woman does that mean he has changed his biological sex.Can he play in women's sports like women's football teams or in women's tennis?

He can, and in the new 'woke' western world he will, and the price for that will be paid for by exceptional female athletes, whether they like it or not... apparently. Removed

Apologies, but your grammar is abysmal considering you're a graduate. I'd demand a refund if I were you.

I say that, but you only have a Bachelors, they're not worth the paper they're printed on - especially in 2021.

Your syntax and prose is pretty much testament to that, unfortunately. Too many uneducated 'educated' people out there in professional jobs - no wonder Britain is so messed up.

And therein lies the problem that will never go away - parents who are unable, for whatever reason, to parent their children properly. Money should be invested on those who genuinely deserve the support, and this means sorting out the line used to describe ‘poverty’ - those on free school meals who cannot be a*sed to pick stuff up from school and go to McDonalds because it’s easier don’t count!
"Money should be invested on those who genuinely deserve the support"

The rest should be - Banished? Gassed? Eaten? Forgotten?

Do let us know where you draw the lines. Then we can see which will be in whatever insane definition of poverty you use. Everyone else uses the well-defined and well-understood definitions of relative and absolute poverty; only you use your own bigoted judgmental bullshi

Your post is a denial of inequality and a denial of sexism and racism.

If you geniuinely believe what you wrote, you need sectioning.

As you don't believe a word of it, your only "excuse " for your bigotry is poor education, poor socialisation, lack of empathy, ignorance, sociopathic tendencies, and listening to too many right wing "meetings" in the EDL / NF / BNP, whichever it is these days.
You are a complete moron. Don't try telling me what I do or don't believe, you pathetic halfwit. My example shows what a black woman can achieve if she really wants to. She proved she was as capable as any white man. Did you even read the article? Removed
