Caroline Lucas - eugenicist?


Or something pretty close:

David and Victoria Beckham may have been overjoyed to welcome their new daughter, Harper Seven, last week but, according to a growing group of campaigners, the birth of their fourth child make the couple bad role models and environmentally irresponsible.

As the world's population is due to hit seven billion at some point in the next few days, there is an increasing call for the UK to open a public debate about how many children people have.

Now the Green MP, Caroline Lucas, has joined other leading environmentalists in calling for the smashing of what TV zoologist Sir David Attenborough has called the "absurd taboo" in discussing family size in the UK.

 I was aware of the unpleasant agenda that Sir David and his friends at the "Optimum Population Trust" were pursuing but it does seem that the Green Party are dangerously close to aopting this unpleasant view.

Will be well worth telling any fools deluded enough to consider voting Green.

I saw this in the paper and thought it horribly obvious it was eugenic in tone. What business it is how many children a couple decides to have. Why does government and fake-charities have to make a play to control everything, including number of children. China has a birth restriction policy - does UK or EU intend to go down that path too. If people keep voting for these types of people and do not start protesting these fake-charities and demanding government stop funding them, then we are going to head down that path, not that we aren't in that direction already.

Doesn't surprise me in the slightest. The same movement has headcases like Pentti Linkola in it, a self desribed eco-fascist and so misanthropic he's actually said that a third world war would be a wonderful thing and that he'd happily die pushing the button himself if he knew it would take millions with him. By comparison with Linkola's boiling point insanity Caroline Lucas is only lukewarm, but the point is she's measured on the same thermometer.

Actually there is a taboo on discussing family size.

We are not allowed to point out that clever women are not having babies whereas penniless troublemakers are.

Oops I just pointed it out. Will the Thought Police come for me?
