    If I hadn't been born, I wouldn't be typing this now.

    Indeed.

    Would the world be a better or worse place for your absence?

    Would brexit have happened?

    I sometimes wish I hadn't been born.

    It's perfectly possible, often totally reasonable, to wish you had different parents.

    But if you had different parents, you wouldn't have the same DNA

    So you would be essentially a different person. The person that you actually are would not exist.

    I have, on occasion, wished that I was adopted and thus didn't share genes with my parents ;)

    Well, sincerity can vary, always. But it's verging on bad form to say so. You are basically accusing some of your fellow posters of dishonest argument, with no more than general suspicion as evidence.

    I will simply note that the policy examples are all forward-looking wishes, and thus nastier than a regretful look backward.

    I don’t wish Trump dead. I just wish he had never been spawned.

    Is that purely because your parents believe in self-determination and you don't, or is there other stuff...

    It's quite scary really how 'random' we are. Even with the same parents, a different conception date would have resulted in a different you. But, as The Temptations put it so eloquently: 'You might not like who you are, but you better start liking it, 'cause you sure as Hell can't be nobody else'.

    Mostly just a lighthearted remark that I don't want to turn into either of them as I get older.

    No, the Great Creator installs your soul within the product of conception and even if there’s a spontaneous abortion, you’re reinstalled into a subsequent one.

    Bad form to quote one's own post, but I now feel guilty for having said this.

    Yes, by using "spawn" instead of "born", I did imply that Trump was less than human. But I meant no offense to crabs, shrimps, various molluscs such as oysters and squid, or echinoderms such as sea urchins and cucumbers, amphibians such as frogs and newts, or any other aquatic egg-laying animals or insects (all of whom I hold in much higher regard than the current POTUS).

    Thank you for listening and understanding. Am feeling much better now.

    I only see TV news once in a blue moon when I visit either parent and they have the TV on, today was such a day. I saw Corbyn on the BBC News at the same time as the others talking about his green housing plan thingy and him commenting on Frog Face deciding not to stand, it all looked equal share to me.

    I saw an interview with Farage I think on BBC maybe Sky. Pathetic, like a child writing his Xmas wish list. He just wants a Brexit for Xmas. No policy just Brexit. A decent reporter could tear him to shreds. He is just allowed to spew out stupidity and the reporter stands gapping in awe at such idiocy.
    Brexit is like a small Xmas surprise. It comes in a box you just open the box and there it is all done. No assembly required.

    Why not even ask him immediately why he ran away the minute the result came in. Troll him about just being a hurler on the ditch taking a large salary spewing bile against all. He is the master of moaning about all but takes no responsibility.

    he's getting platformed by a willing bbc it would seem. completely unchallenged. and this despite it so obviously being the case that he is not standing for election because he knows he's unelectable. in fact his failure rate in elections appears to closely match blojo's failure rate in the commons. what a lovely symmetry for two narcissistic and toxic individuals.

    I don't think it is because they support him. He is just obnoxious and a bully , I think modern reporters today are just afraid to challenge these characters. It is easier to just let them waffle on rather then take them on. It is so blindingly obvious he brings nothing to the table but empty rhetoric. Can they not find a Greta Thurnberg to let loose on him?

    The training of most if not all European doctors and nurses is financed by taxpayers in their countries of origin at a very high cost to the treasury.

    Shouldn't the UK pay those countries for the privelege of hiring/importing such highly qualified professionals?
    Assuming that they still want to come after the Brexit blaze has subsided...
