      I think it is much more important that elderly parents should be able to marry their children so that they can avoid IHT.

      I see no reason why, if I can marry the girl next door, I shouldn’t be able to marry my own younger sister who has looked after me, or my daughter. Consumation isn’t defined or compulsory; as long as I don’t do anything illegal sexually, I see no reason why I shouldn’t marry them if they are consenting.

      Consanguinity may be a good reason to prohibit intercourse (or maybe not, since I can’t get pregnant by my sister) but that’s got nothing to do with marrying. All you have to do is make a declaration stating that this is my lawful wedded other half, and that’s it. What that may mean in practice is between the two – or more – of us.

        Extend UK Civil Partnership Scheme to Polyamorous Individuals

        Responsible department: Ministry of Justice

        The legalisation of same-sex marriage will render the current civil partnership system redundant. However, we the undersigned would like to see an investigation into the opening of the civil partnership scheme to multiple partners: specifically, to committed relationships of three to five people.

        The law needs to recognise the changing nature of families and relationships in modern Britain. At present ‘polyamorous’ people (those in loving relationships of more than two people) are denied the same rights as our monogamous counterparts: to visit our partners in hospital, to keep custody of our children, coverage for insurance and inheritance, and all other protections afforded to civil partnered couples.

        As of 2012 Brazil has recognised unions of three people. We believe that the United Kingdom’s civil partnership system is well-placed to provide British polyamorous families with equal protection under the law.

    WE urgently need to consign these assholes to the dustbin of history and look to having people who really represent our interests.

    Dave’s a fucking moron; he’s sealed his own political death warrant with this insane “progressive” agenda where he tries to redefine the english language itself whilst simultaneously completely ignoring the total fuckup of the UK economy and increasing the national debt at a rate of over £100billion/year with no fucking end in sight of ever being able to pay back a single penny of that debt.

    And, where the fuck is this “majority” that Cameron talks about who agree with gay marriage? Is that the majority of people who he meets in wanky london winebars?

    Well, sorry Dave, but the metro-elite are NOT the majority of the country, they are a bunch of champagne socialist progressive fuckwits who’ve got no idea how the real world works.

    Fuck off Dave. Your time is over.

    The tragic thing is that he doesn’t even know how fucked he is politically; he’s surrounded by like-minded “progressives” and the media spin that “progressive” agenda as if nobody in the country disagrees with it.

    This’ll kill the tories’ hopes of getting a majority in 2015 stone-dead.

    People don’t tend to forget it when a leader enforces an Orwellian redefinition of language and facts on the masses, especially when that leader completely ignores the country/economy falling to pieces whilst doing so.

          Imagine this fantasy scenario:

          A crowded nation — subject to remote ideologies and confused national identity –import many cultists, who cling together in small areas. The importing state provides them with benefits and housing beyond the newcomer’s expectations and help them pay to bring over ‘family’ and who soon take over local schools by sheer weight of numbers. This cult wants to be separate from the mainstream of this ‘forward-looking’ nation so they remain locked in own traditions and dislike integration, except on their terms when it provides access to vulnerable youths, and remain as mostly self-employed males with poor English skills who can claim they don’t understand the taxation laws (well, no one does, so with them on that one) and avoid paying into the pot.

          Being a closed group, this cult has political and criminal elements (as all cults do, in fact) but they also have the ‘support’ of a complicit national media who are anxious to root out anti-cultist feelings, even if the anti-cultists have genuine fears and objections. In any event, the support structure of schools, housing, utilities, health are are strained to breaking point, requiring more money to be poured in which — goodness — benefits the cult and encourages them to ask for more.

          The cult routinely suppresses its own dissidents, especially females who might have an idea they can make their way in the world on their own, and in fact calls for the death of anyone who wants to leave the cult. While the host nation has strict laws on such matters, it often turns a blind eye to such demands and suppresses.

          The adherents of this cult insist that any laws suit them, or they are excused on cultist grounds. It’s a win-win situation as they can do what they want, effectively, and refuse to avoid doing what they don’t like. At the same time, while initially supporting one pro-immigration party, they form their own parties. Their large numbers mean they sweep the local elections. Once in that nation’s legislature, the laws are begun to be changed…

    iii) How many people believe that the current political class is working in the best interests of the next generation and society in general ?

Depending on what figures you use, if you aggregate all debt owed by individuals and government and divide by the number of people working, they could not pay it all off were they to live for three lifetimes.

        The debt question is interesting though as that is very subjective in many ways. We are coming up to GBP 1.4 Tn in debt, but have we really imported that many goods ? The bulk of the debt is largely based in paper and fictitious interest, not material goods.

        Most of it can be written off immediately without causing any existential problems. Ie. A war over non settlement of a real international obligation. The only thing keeping that fiction alive is the belief that this debt is real and should be paid.

      Huhne Watch says:

      That was her intent, but the ball has bounced and it is coming back at her.

      The Crown’s approach so far is to broadly undermine her credibility for duress claim. They have just about established that she is not weak minded, is vengeful and somewhat calculating. Indirectly, the Crown has also painted Huhne in a light which does not suggest that he is in any way aggressive or menacing, but that she is.

      It is going to be interesting to see what gets pulled out of the hat when the defense makes its case to counter this.

      Unless there is some documented record of what exactly happened between the car being photographed and the points being taken, or if there is anything documented which could support a claim of duress at that time, then this case will hinge on what the jury perceives of her.

      The advice if you want to do what she is doing:

      i) At the time you commit the offense, make sure you walk into a door and go to a hospital for treatment and keep a record of this. Appear nervous for the doctors, and perhaps see a counselor at least once.

      ii) At the later date: Speak to a criminal lawyer first, then police, and then press (subject to your legal advice). May be better to get a lawyer who knows the Crown’s well. Also may look better to not inform the police you have spoken to lawyer before seeing them.

      iii) Do not discuss any plan with anybody except your lawyer, and only do that verbally at their chambers. They are duty bound to secrecy, will be unlikely to collude, but if you need to vent, that is the only person you can trust.

      iv) Showtime.

      Unless there are eyewitnesses / forensics it is all about credibility with the jury, and the strength of the defense against prosecution. Do not believe for one minute the nonsense’s about pity and bias in criminal cases, or undue sympathy from the jurors.

      A criminal trial is all about brute survival. If you are i) not guilty, ii) have evidence which proves this and iii) are credible before a jury then not guilty is an easy plea. It is a progressively harder plea as you work back through those points: Note the nature and the order.

      Interesting to see what happens next.
