I don't think this was the best idea. As I understand it, this was done on the claim that she is entitled to (but has not claimed) Bangladeshi citizenship. Given that Bangladesh is now refusing to grant her citizenship, it appears the British government has, in fact, rendered her stateless, given th...

Technically legal, but effectively outlawed due to the banning of fundamental practices such as halal slaughter and infant/child circumcision (Judaism is similarly affected).

Slavery has always been illegal in Draconikus. However, both penal service and indentured service are well established. Fortunately for those caught in those systems, they have become increasingly regulated over the years. Penal service has always been the sole domain of the State and almost exclusi...

How strict is your definition of slavery? Because 'slavery' in the true sense... no. People are not property, and must always be afforded _some_ rights. The spectrum between 'indentured servant' and 'feudal serf', excepting the purest form of serfdom, however, I can see no problems with, and only di...

I like the idea. I don't really get why people are against it. It makes it easier for lazy students? Well, sure, but so do revision guides and textbooks. They make it easier for _students_. As a whole. It still requires a significant amount of effort to learn any degree level subject, and, if anythi...

no we shouldn't be signalling aliens. Not before we have interstellar travel down. Once we have that, it'll only be a few centuries at most before we become well-versed in the art of interstellar warfare, and then we'll be quite ready to meet our galactic neighbours. I guess thats the safest way. B...

You forget - we've been telling aliens where to find for about 70 years or so. Every radio transmission is a pulse from the beacon indicating "We're here!" Now, whether aliens could receive any of those transmissions in any sort of meaningful timeframe is debatable. As for the physical ind...

Both calls are racist. The difference is, one calls for the empowerment of a disadvantaged group, whilst the other calls for the empowerment of the already dominant group. As fair-minded people, we are willing to allow the less advantaged group to call for their own empowerment, but we sense somethi...

It depends on where in Draconikus you're from. Country dwellers tend to speak with a strong Yorkshire accent, whilst the aristocracy adopted the British Imperial accent in the nineteenth century. This has led the townsfolk to speak on a scale between the two - an attentive person, for example, can n...

I have to disagree with this. Ethics have a place in law, and up until fairly recently, religion was considered _the_ moral guide. So what we really have is 'is this essential to the moral framework, or is it an artifact of past ages?' Which is a perfectly legitimate question for our lawmakers. How...

I mean no offensive to social conservatives, but really, what is the problem? I see four pretty flawed arguments against it. 1. Religion. "AND IF A MAN LIES WITH ANOTHER MAN, IT SHALL BE AN ABOMINATION." Religion has no place in law. Also, that only counts for two men, so being lesbian is...
