I have twins who have just turned 17 and I have to say that they have never been in any trouble, they do not have asbo's and nor do any of their friends. I do however take exception to the proposal that parents should pay for their teenagers' misdemeanours whilst at the same time they do not have the right to force their children into behavioural therapy.
Asbos are a good tool if used appropriately, Nobody mentions all the intervention and that an asbo is no a punishment it is a means to modify behaviour and protect communities. Let the opponents live next door to an out of control youth and then have an opinion

I keep seeing all these reports about carbon dioxide emissions. I think surely there is a way that the carbon dioxide released by factories and power stations could be reused instead of being released into the air. Doesn't the technology exist to process it to recycle it.
I Think that if I were P.M. for a day that I would introduce a 'Fair Trade' Bill so that all food producers are properly and proportionately paid wherever they are throughout the world...

Green taxes are just another way for this labour government to squeeze yet more cash out of the working man. There needs to be a global agreement to sort it not just taxing the people of the UK who are already taxed to the hilt. It seems to be the answer to everything for this government fines and taxes without doing anything to sort the real issues.
The idea of Green Taxes is ridiculous - aren't we being taxed enough?
Why don't the government consider granting TAX RELIEF for individuals, families and homes that undertake actions to reduce climate change?
It seems to me that a lot of politicians avoid discussing the implications of increasing prices of oil, and its impact on daily life. Instead go off on a climate change tangent, or 4x4/public transport or energy. Ignoring transport, price increase would presumably affect an innumerable amount of material production industries (i.e. toothbrushes, toothpastes, pesticides) as well as those focused on energy. I just wonder what's being done to cope with an increasing scarcity in these resources and what I can only see as an overall increase in living.
