    There is a big discussion going on at the moment as to whether Muslin women should be allowed to cover their faces in courts of law, colleges and schools. If so is it alright for anyone to wear a full face balaclava or cover their face with a scarf? I would not want to deal with anyone who had their face covered and the thought of being treated in hospital by someone like that concerns me. We are used to being able to identify people in this country and associate covering the face with violent intent. A lot of Muslims state that there is no religious reason for it and a headscarf is sufficient.
    Anyone have any thoughts on it?

    There is a big bang coming in our government, and it will start tomorrow (Monday). Some Members of Parliament want an early referendum on whether to stay in the EU, or leave it. The Torys promised a free vote if they won the last election, and then backtracked. They have now promised a vote after the next election. Most of the population would like to have a vote on the subject and I am sure, most would vote to leave the EU. Cameron as PM seems to want to renegotiate our term. Almost an impossibility. The other countries would not allow it, especially as we pay more into the EU pot than any other country apart from Germany. We are about to open our country to potentially another 29,000,000 immigrants who will have the same rights here as anyone born here. I am not surprised the majority of the population here want a referendum, and [preferably tomorrow.

    Big Bang in Gov't, eh Teddles? I'd Love to see the Big Bang affect "Baghdad on the Potomac" aka Washington D.C. - Obamanable Hussein has to understand that he is responsible for the mess that he's made or else he will be impeached...

    The States wants NZ and other Pacific countries to enter into a trade agreement and our Government is very keen but I am so suspicious that the country to gain the most will not be poor little NZ.

    You're darn right that NZ will not benefit from an agreement with the States...

    Our Prime Minister has vetoed the idea of a referendum on the EU. He says it will not happen before 2017. BUT the majority of the public want one sooner. Roll on November the 5th. Anyone got a light?

    Our PM is of a similar ilk , we have raised enough signatures for a referendum (against asset sales) and one will be held but he has said it is a waste of time as the government will ignore it.

    Well hopefully we all know what will happen to him at the next election. We have an election for EU places next year and I expect to see a lot of UKIP (anti EU) being elected. That might shake up the goverment.

    I have two choices The National Party = sell assets to get some quick money. The Labour Party = borough money from overseas to get the std of living we want of course you then have to pay back + interest so you see teddy it is Hobsons choice, so for the first time in my life I may not vote at all.

    Sounds like someone needs to start a third party based on common sense ideas Colin.

    Do we know of any spare islands up for grabs where we could set up our own state?
