A line from An Honourable Man, by Michael McManus: “The British attitude to Europe reminds me of my parents’ cat. It scratches the door, desperate to get out, and when you open the door it just sits there licking its balls.” Hard to find better description of our current cabinet.

Slavery, just to name one thing off the top of my head, must be a natural law. There is nothing natural about natural law.

Slavery gets brought up a lot in natural law scholarship. An interesting one. But I don't want to derail the thread, and I doubt there'd be enough people here with an interest in the topic to start a new one. Just a comment about something someone posted, probably best left at that.

Maybe one relevant link to the thread - 2 of the only things all cultures seem to have agreed on are that lying and theft are wrong. Social media, fake news... a lot of both going on maybe more than ever these days!

Still a lot of slavery about particularly in Asia. But, as you said, that's another topic.

The Queen is laying the groundwork for a major sickie to avoid meeting Trump. This is the subtle first stage, where you miss a day’s work. Then you return and heroically struggle on, plainly suffering. Finally everyone persuades you take some time off, exactly when you wanted to. https://t.co/tEq9lZCA1m

My mate has two tickets for the England vs Sweden game on Saturday. He didn't realise that it's going to be on the same day as his wedding, so he can't go. If you're interested and want to go instead of him, it's at St. Andrew's Church in Cambridge and her name is Sarah

There is a small village of about 3 houses and a celtic burial mound, in the Scottish Highlands, called Lost, and I have pics, ( that I cant post, ) to prove it, having ridden thru it when I was,  you guessed it,  "lost " .LOL

Slavery ????       When we have struggle street for people on minimum wages and Lawyers & their clients on $10,000 a day or minute.
Probably more slaves in the world today than ever.

I would go into Politics tomorrow if I could be sure of getting my hands on Sarah Hanson Young's seat....

The Twittersphere is off tap with the Trump visit to the UK .... here's some of the comedians at bay 

My friend Paul just emailed to say his favourite placard in the London Trump protests was the one that said ALL IN ALL YOU'RE JUST ANOTHER PRICK WITH NO WALL.

Trump will be loving all this attention from the UK! Big smile

They are certainly are proving themselves to be more intelligent and creative than the "OUTRAGED"!!! FCUK TRUMPER morons back home - not hard!LOL

... however, they clearly don't get it either!Wacko

Foreigners, who's economy, culture and political scene is in complete disarray, schite-bagging the Winning POTUS? 

... it just feeds to his base back home, PLUS serves to sway a few lost patriots here and there, who have been disgusted by the FBI traitor.

He can expect a little uplift in his approval ratings next week!Thumbs Up

All true but at least you can laugh at the English sense of humour - A facet sadly lacking in the rest of the worldwide Anti Trump campaign.

Here's some of the best material thanks to the Spitting Image crew at the BBC -
