He's an old Eurocrat from when the EU was shiney and new and optimistic that heralded a promised a new world. It was a time when he had a full head of hair and his type were the elite. The early nineties seem like a long time ago now.

Now it's failing, he's retired and follicly challenged and there's a dozen people on here openly toasting when each and every piece of that Empire he's invested so much of his being into, peels off and comes crashed to the ground. That's gonna test the blood pressure.

Glad to see them out on the march and also Justin Barrett with his own family. It's a nice thing to see, it has a certain warmness to it.

Barrett's wife isn't half bad looking either! ;)
They look like a decent family. Those on this march looked decent and well balanced people. The few who opposed it looked like broken people.

You’re next if abortion law repealed, far-right tells elderly

A sensationalist headline from the West Brit Times. But the meaning behind the article itself is relatively on point.
Paywall, but im assuming hes talking about euthanasia which is the logical next step, and it should be highlighted more.
This seems to come up again and again re the pro life etc,,

Pro-Lifers Link Euthanasia to Abortion
Abortion and euthanasia: was Virginia Ironside right?
Abortion v.s. Euthanasia
ABORTION vs EUTHANASIA, Social Issues - CollegeTermPapers.com

From a economic standpoint abortion will remove a lot of potential dependent children from the society the state would otherwise have to pay for. Families are the same if their having only one child, they would want to abort any down syndrome kids etc..

And as families are getting smaller generation after generation, extended family support for grandparents is not there. And in a state which is getting greyer by the generation, they will seek ways to get rid of the cost as they start to clog up the system which has failed to plan for such an issue, and if their is no plan outside mass immigration, you can see why people would be worried that euthanasia would be next.

Something of this was discussed here The Horror of Captialism - Japanese Pensioners Shoplifting because they want to be put in Prison regards a states failure to look after its elderly when the economic system works counter to their overall benefit.

Nobody reads that stuff anyway but liblobs. And of course what Barrett says is perfectly true. It's all part of the hyperconsumer society were even people are commodified, assessed for their material worth and dumped on the scrap heap if they are regarded as a burden.
