Default Charity offers UK drug addicts £200 to be sterilised

On The BBC

Now I think this is a top idea, stopping unwanted kids that'll end up growing up on benefits and robbing old ladies for drug money.

If the addict uses the £200 to buy more drugs that eventually (or hopefully quickly) kill him/her, then so much the better.

There should be more of this type of action, especially in the UK.

I applaud her.

I have no problem with this as long as it is voluntarily sterilisation.

Not all unwanted kids end up on benefits, take drugs or rob old ladies....I am sure my father who was the youngest of 17 and born in the depression was unwanted.

There for the grace of god go you, how fortunate you do not have this 'illness', and that is what it is, working in mental health for many years you learn not to look at things in black and white, the grey area's are the vets, doctors, senior police, toffs etc., etc., addicted to drugs, and maybe, if you drink or/and smoke you need to know that these are drugs and highly addictive, and harm others due to passive smoking, violence & poverty, so think twice before you make such a judgement on others, finally, are you a daily mail reader??

No, It's too left wing, I prefer The Sun....

As I'm sure if you've read my posts before you will probably realise.

Anyway, I stand by it, i think it's a great thing to do.

Well your choice of newspapers say it all, I think it is a good thing to offer incentives to prevent another mouth to feed in dysfunctional families, but please try and broaden your mind a little, I believe that the 'sun' and other so called papers that print such propaganda are rubbing their hands in glee when people turn against certain groups, it diverts them from seeing the wider picture, but being a reader of that rag, you will not understand. If you write such bigoted rubbish on this forum, expect to get some flack.

some say,,,, he once drove a morris minor so fast, that he shattered Sir Donald Campbell's eardrums and he ate a donner kebab when sober... All we know is he 's called the stig....... soorrreee... Andy Capp


Jeremy Clarkson has a lot to answer for


P.S. i think you've just been "andied"..... he's good at that:cla p2:
